Climate Change: Germanwatch presents Global Climate Risk Index 2010

link to article
The climate and development organization Germanwatch has today published its Global Climate Risk Index 2010. The Global Climate Risk Index analyzes to what extent countries have been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heatwaves etc.).

The Global Climate Risk Index (CRI) developed by Germanwatch analyzes the quantified impacts of extreme weather events in terms of people that have died from them, as well as economic losses that occurred. It is based on data from Munich Re´s Nat-CatSERVICE® which is one of the most reliable and complete data bases on this matter. While it does not take into account aspects such as sea-level rise or glacier melting, climate change is an increasingly important factor for the occurrence and intensity of these events. The CRI can therefore provide an indication of levels of exposure and vulnerability to extreme events which countries should see as a warning signal to prepare for more severe events in the future. The fifth edition of the CRI looks particularly at the impacts of extreme weather events from 1990 up until the most recent available data – 2008…

Music: Victor Jara Manifiesto

Not too long ago this voice was heard – but then silenced by murderers and thugs that have changed the face of this beautiful country for many years.

RIP – Victor – you will never be forgotten – but those who caused your death should be forgotten forever – their lives made never exist – but not their wrong doing and crimes.

Climate Change: Those hacked e-mails

link to article
Some more facts about “those leaked climate change emails” that have mobilized all those figures now claiming there’s nothing to be frightened about – its all a “scam” – you name it – well you know – just carry on watching TV – you know like the GOOOOOD people.

Yes Bernie that’s how you got those 50 billions but we’re not sure that this also works with mass manipulation.

And in completely unrelated news by these maSS-manipulators – the leading industrial nations – might be again announced during the Copenhagen photo opportunity – have agreed to shell out USD 10 Billions per year to fight those “non-existing” threats to human race on this planet – providing those monies to countries who are hardest hit by climate change – small island states – developing countries with long and low coast lines – i.e. BangLadesh – but don’t worry – nothing to fear here – move on – and if that won’t help – well there is still “duck and cover” that worked so well in the 1950s with the atomic bribery…

– So grandma is fine – and she lived for almost 80 years now – there ain’t no warming – she always says she’s feeling cold…

Word Aids Day: Best Comment Seen (so far)

link to article
Is it already another year down the drain – World AIDS DAY again – did we miss something? Certainly not with regards to that topic.

Business as usual – story telling, promises, shoulder rubbing and clapping wherever you look. But less and less are looking. They have problems – much more problems themselves today than a year ago – and they don’t want to listen to promises of if-you-give-us-another-xxx-billions-we-will-do-something-you-could-have-for-a-few-millions-with-no-problem-anywhere-else stories anymore.

Maybe this time around even some politicians and top bureaucrats that all the years before have happily looked “…the other way…” are starting to understand that some “real” results might even forward them.

Maybe there is some common sense reappearing. That funding mass murderers, torturers, mass rapists, organized crime and – you name it – actually might not change the situation of those that suffer from this fatal disease. Maybe someone who has the power will finally stand up and say: It’s enough – we will not fund the perks of parasites and clowns anymore – we will actually do something for the people…
