Barclays Closes US Carbon Desk In Latest Cap And Trade Setback

A major European bank closed its US carbon trading business this week in a sign that 2012 is a “make-or-break” year for cap-and-trade programs designed to fight climate change.

London-based Barclays determined the US carbon market, currently comprised of a handful of states, is too small to justify the expense of a dedicated trading desk in New York, according to sources familiar with the decision. Barclays was a major player in US greenhouse-gas trading programs on the East and West coasts and remains active in Europe’s carbon market, the largest in the world. Seth Martin, a Barclays spokesman, declined to comment.

“That is not good news for carbon-dioxide trading, especially not in the US,” says Gary Hart, a market analyst for ICAP Energy and a veteran pollution-rights trader. “There’s such uncertainty around the use of carbon cap-and-trade programs.”

Aluminum is one of those metals that infects healthy brains and drives people to total insanity. Aluminum causes dementia and Alzheimer’s, and in children it has been linked to learning disabilities and behavioral disorders.

So why does Big Pharma coat children’s medicines with both aluminum and toxic coloring chemicals that damage brains?

It’s sick. Learn the truth, then pass it on:

British royals ‘used to be cannibals dining on human flesh’

The British royal family have been firmly in the limelight, with the nuptials between Prince William andKate Middleton making headline news around the world.

But now a new reason has emerged why the royals might be a particularly interesting subject, with the revelation that they used to dine on human flesh.

 Kate and Wills will hopefully not follow the cannibal traditions of their ancestors (PA)

According to a new book on medicinal cannibalism, written by University of Durham academic Dr Richard Sugg, well-off and well-educated Brits used to eat human flesh, blood and bones as medicine.

This practice apparently took place in other parts of Europe as well up until the end of the 18th century.

While referring to the barbarity of cannibals in the New World, royals hypocritically applied, drank or wore powdered Egyptian mummy, as well as human fat, flesh, bone and even brains.

Dr Sugg suggests one cure for nosebleeds used by the upper class was moss taken from the skulls of dead soldiers.

The academic, from the university’s English Studies department, argues strongly that the Europeans were the real cannibals of the world.

‘One thing we are rarely taught at school, yet is evidenced in literary and historic texts of the time, is this: James I refused corpse medicine; Charles II made his own corpse medicine; and Charles I was made into corpse medicine,’ he said.

Charles II wasn’t the only royal to enjoy a feast of human flesh either; Queen Mary and William III were said to be in on the act too.

Dr Sugg’s book, Mummies, Cannibals and Vampires, will be published on June 29th and will be featured in an upcoming Channel 4 documentary with Tony Robinson.

Recently, a would-be cannibal in Kysak, Slovakia, was shot dead by police after his potential meal informed the authorities of his plans.


Dreams Fading In America And Europe

January 25 2012: Credit Suisse on board with us, a rescue for France in the works, Greece headed for the dustbin, will Germany leave the Euro? Pressure put on Iran, 953 dead voters in South Carolina, American way of life a fading dream.

An excerpt from Bob Chapman’s weekly publication.

We announced our belief a few weeks ago that the Fed loan to the ECB could with fractional banking be $10 trillion. This past week we found that Credit Suisse shares our ideas as well. We believe that what this move by the Fed and the ECB is telling us that this is probably it. We also ask again how can the banks in the LTRP repay the funds in a timely manner? No plan has been presented before or since, there is no plan. Again, just throw money at the problem. The only player really capable of saving Europe is Germany and they would destroy themselves in the

The Disease Machine: Why Drug Makers Keep You Sick

Why are ineffective and dangerous drugs peddled by supposed ‘public health’ organizations in place of well-established natural solutions with virtually zero side effects?The truth of the matter is that drug makers simply would not profit if the world were to awaken to the plethora of free health-promoting substances that beat out over-priced pharmaceuticals and medical interventions.
