Alert – Chemtrails

By Liloumace on 27 Sep 2011

From website www.whatintheworldaretheyspraying.info: breathtaking documentary exposé that uncovers the clandestine global geo-engineering operations underway for years.

Under the guise of the “global warming” fear campaign, governments and other corporations have been adding millions of tons of aluminium, barium, strontium, polymers, and other substances to the atmosphere around the world. This has been done without the knowledge or consent of the population!!! What are the effects? How does the ongoing dumping of chemicals into our skies affect the air we breathe, the sunlight we receive, our water and our soil?

Popular Herbicide Blamed in Tree Deaths

Popular herbicide? How plant killer can be popular and considered eco-friendly??? Sadly it can, and it is in agriculture!
But anyway, I’m strong advocate of natural and healthy living and wouldn’t use such thing on my grounds, so anyone who is using such should take full responsibility on it self, regardless of who made it and what does it say on the tin.
American way is to sue and blame everyone but not themselves. I think the Michigan-based Polo Fields Golf & Country Club should now be sorry for using toxic chemicals in the first place, it is THEIR OWN fault ONLY.
Also, claims made by DuPont and the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) that some plant-killing chemical is ‘safe’ to anything is ridiculous and illogical. It would be beneficial to all of us to ignore them both and not use herbicides, pesticides and the like never ever again. It is my opinion, yours might be different.


Here is an article discussing those issues

Originally considered an eco-friendly alternative to other landscaping products, recently approved and commonly used herbicide Imprelis has been pinned as the prime suspect in the deaths of thousands of eastern white pines and Norway spruces, among other trees, across America.


A product of DuPont, an international company that claims to create sustainable solutions, Imprelis emerged in the market this year, after being conditionally approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) last October. Accounts of dying trees came months later, with a cluster of reports surfacing around Memorial Day.

In response to the deaths,…

Flat pack homes are the future

Is the recycled plastic good material for eco-house?

For me, it is not the first or even the third choice of material to build a house from. My preference takes also recycled but natural one such as wood. It can be reused in many ways.
The problem with plastics is that they are … plastics, artificially crafted non-breathable products; in many cases containing unhealthy ingredients. Of course, house can be eco-friendly designed and all that make it as such could be implemented, however. How eco-friendly is plastic on its own? It is recycling, yes but is it using plastic as building material the best way of utilizing it? Not for me, but you may have different point of view.

Flat pack homes which cost as little as £20,000 and properties made out of recycled plastic hold the key to solving the UK’s housing shortage, a report says.


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) said traditional building methods must make way for more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly designs in order to tackle the current housing crisis.

It called on the house building industry to make use of off-site construction methods, recycled materials and innovative structural designs to enable homes to be put up quickly and cheaply.

The group said that modular homes …

Do a Good Deed for the New Year

The New Year is traditionally a time for get rid of some old ghosts in the closet and move on to pastures new.

So as we move into 2011, how about getting rid of your old banger whilst doing a good deed for the environment and also charity?

The social enterprise website Giveacar allows you to do just that. Scrapping a car can be traditionally very bad for the environment. Only around half of all decommissioned cars are treated at authorised treatment facilities (ATFs), where cars are disposed of the many pollutants associated with cars in a safe, secure and environmental manner.

However at Giveacar, depending on the vehicle’s state of repair, it will either be disposed of in this way or sold at auction. Either way, the profits of the vehicle’s sale will be donated to a charity of the vehicle owner’s choice.

To find out more about Giveacar, please visit their website: www.giveacar.co.uk. They are able to collect any car, anywhere in the UK, at no cost to the donor. Over 250 charities are affiliated with the scheme.

Eco-friendlier cleaning products marketed

LOS ANGELES – Maybe 2011 is the year a clean start means returning to Grandma’s scrubbing ways and getting down on hands knees with simple baking soda and vinegar. Or maybe it means staring down that supermarket aisle of cleaning products and making better choices about the dizzying selection of powders and liquids that claim not only to clean but also to be healthy for people and the planet. Sustainable, Earth-friendly, green, renewable – what do the words tell a shopper? 

“The last 24 months was a real sea change as large traditional brands are introducing greener or green versions of products. I believe that trend will continue,” said Jeffrey Hollender, author of a new book, “Planet Home,” and former chief executive of the cleaning products company Seventh Generation.

“On the industry side, …

Auckland construction products manufacturer Cemix has launched a revolutionary new product – blended concrete mix that contains 50% recycled materials without compromising performance.

The product, called Envirocrete, is a first for New Zealand and was launched in Auckland last week. The development of the product is an attempt to reduce the huge volume of 163,000 tonnes of concrete dumped in New Zealand landfills each year.

According to recent Auckland City Council statistics, building and construction waste makes up 17% of the 3.2 million tonnes of refuse dumped in New Zealand landfills annually.

BP’s Bizarre Photo Alterations

By Nick Zantop and published on ItsJustLight

Having worked as a photographer for several years, I have spent many sleepless nights with Photoshop open, “perfecting” images for fashion editorials and advertisements. A slightly higher shoulder, maybe a different color for the background, perhaps hair that is a bit longer. By nature, photographs lie. They capture only an instant, a sliver of time. It is up to the photographer to create a coherent story through these little lies, creating a larger truth when viewed together. Photoshop and other image editing software enables the photographer (or anyone) to turn a white lie into a dark thunderstorm of a lie, or more innocuously, to simply make parts of an image more visible.

After traveling over one thousand miles from Florida’s Panhandle to Grand Isle, Louisiana and back to document the devastation wrought by the deadly sea of crude oil, I feel confident when I say that BP is not handling the disaster as well as their multi-million dollar TV commercials and newspaper ads would like us to believe. I encountered a cleanup effort that seemed to focus its greatest attention on easily accessible beaches frequented by tourists, leaving more secluded areas awash with death and oil.

How to BE Honest, Make Money and Still Protect Environment while Creating Future


I couldn’t stop myself from posting this video. I have two reasons for this:

  • First – Richard Branson is my first and the only one in my entire life idol, the person I really admire
  • Second – He talks about ecological solution to flying into space and I believe Him.

Now, how many of us are fans or at least saw the Star Trek? I guess that thousands, hundreds of thousands. Can you see Sci-Fi vision turning into reality? Can you see a desire, passion and dreams coming true? I do.

What conclusion can one draw out of this? Do what you like to do or do what you think you have to do but NEVER EVER stop DREAMING!!! Never give-up your desires and do not let others to make you drop them.
There are millions of people, including your closest family and friends, who may and will pull you down because they cannot see things you have in your mind and they do not believe that what your dream of CAN become reality!

What is even more important – feel good, enjoy what you do and listen to those who question them selves looking for and expecting answers, listening and observing very carefully, knowing that for every problem there is a solution. A solution, that will present it self when the time is right and in its best form.
You don’t know what you don’t know, so THINK … the power is in you.

What is the Impact of Wealth on the Environment?

What I’m going to say may have nothing to do with ecology or environment but … it helps with wealthy living.

Wealthy living may have immense impact on the environment; both positive or negative. Obviously, it will depend on what one will do with its wealth but I choose thinking positively. 🙂

OK, the wealthy living can start with FREE gift or with some money spent on product or for education. Here is a product which will give you education, it is FREE and by learning you will invest in yourself. What could be better?

Some, will be skeptical because nothing is for FREE and this true, some other will say it must rubbish because is or FREE. Will the last pay is it wasn’t? Maybe but there is no guarantee. I would agree with the first because the price one will pay is time and effort to do something others will not to be bothered.

At least, if you get something that is FREE and you do not like it you can easily get rid of it without pain, it was FREE anyway or  find yourself in the beneficiary position and ahead of others just by gaining useful knowledge. The call is yours.

So, HERE AGAIN is the Educational and FREE product for You to explore and gain.

Remember: Be First, The Second is The First Looser. 🙂
