Climate Fraud: Lord Monckton & Aristotle’s Codification of the Commonest Logical Fallacies in Human Discourse
|Monckton vanquishes Union College “Greens too yellow to admit they’re really Reds”
A Ustream video recording of the event is available here
THE NEWS that Lord Monckton was to give his “Climate of Freedom” lecture at Union College in Schenectady, New York, had thrown the university’s environmentalists into a turmoil. The campus environmentalists set up a Facebook page announcing a counter-meeting of their own immediately following Monckton’s lecture. There is no debate about global warming, they announced. There is a consensus. The science is settled. Their meeting would be addressed by professors and PhDs, the “true” scientists, no less. Sparks, it seemed, were gonna fly.
Traveling with Lord Monckton on the East Coast leg of his current whistle-stop tour of the US and Canada, I was looking forward to documenting the Schenectady showdown. I have had

Families and communities are struggling with significant currency debasement and ever more complex regulation which function as capital controls, shutting off opportunity and liquidity to the average person. What to do? Individually, we can reposition our personal and family assets. We can start businesses. The next step is to improve the transaction flow between individuals and business.
This Thursday we will speak with Thomas H. Greco, Jr., proprietor of Reinventing Money and author of New Money for Healthy Communities, Money: Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender and The End of Money and the Future of Civilization. Tom has spent decades writing, researching and educating about the importance of providing alternatives to a financial system that is draining us. We will describe ideas that are working and how they might energize our efforts individually and in our neighborhood and networks.
I will start with Money & Markets and Ask Catherine. Post your questions in the comments section. In Let’s Go to The Movies, a review of Paul Grignon’s animation series, “Money as Debt, I, II and III.”
Money As Debt
|Goldman Sachs Corporation is facing a new wave of charges of not looking out for the interests of its clients this week, as one corporate vice president published a resignation March 14 letter in the New York Times and the company agreed March 13 to pay a $7 million fine to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Goldman Sachs stock took a hit on the two-pronged attack March 14, losing $2.2 billion in stock value with a three-percent plunge, though the stock recovered significantly the next day.Goldman Sachs is Wall Street’s investment banking giant, with 33,000 employees, $28.8 billion in annual revenue and $4.4 billion in profit in 2011.
Former Goldman Sachs Vice President Greg Smith wrote in the March 14 New York Times that “I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.” Smith complained that the client’s interests had been “sidelined” to the corporate interests and that “When the history books are written about Goldman Sachs, they may reflect that the current chief executive officer, Lloyd C. Blankfein, and the president, Gary D. Cohn, lost hold of the firm’s culture on their watch. I truly believe that this decline in the firm’s moral fiber represents the single most serious threat to its long-run survival.” Smith resigned as executive director of the firm’s United States equity derivatives business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, a middle level position with the firm. “Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t like selling my clients a product that is wrong for them,” Smith charged of the Goldman Sachs corporate culture.
Specifically, Smith charged that “I attend derivatives sales meetings where not one single minute is spent asking questions about how we can help clients. It’s purely about how we can make the most possible money off of them. If you were an alien from Mars and sat in on one of these meetings, you would believe that a client’s success or progress was not part of the thought process at all. It makes me ill how callously people talk about ripping their clients off.”
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd C. Blankfein and President/COO Gary D. Cohn jointly sent a letter to employees March 14 countering that “assertions made by this individual that do not reflect our values, our culture and how the vast majority of people at Goldman Sachs think about the firm and the work it does on behalf of our clients.” Blankfein and Cohn claimed that Smith was only one of 12,000 Goldman Sachs vice presidents and that Smith did not represent the corporate mainstream.
But a number of Goldman Sachs outsiders intimately familiar with the company concurred with Smith’s assessments. Former Goldman Sachs employee and CNBC talk show host Jim Kramer told NBC that it is “a shame, and this is a shocking piece. Everyone has to read it.” Former American International Group Chairman Maurice Greenberg charged there has been a “change in culture” in a Bloomberg.com interview on Goldman Sachs. Greenberg had never worked for Goldman Sachs, but had used Goldman Sachs as his investment banker when he headed American International Group until he was forced into retirement in 2005 (and is facing civil lawsuits from New York state bureaucrats for fraud). American International Group – essentially a bankers’ insurance company – faced bankruptcy in 2008 but received $182.5 billion in taxpayer bailouts through the TARP program, the largest of any private company in the program. Tens of billions from the AIG bailout funds went to Goldman Sachs in what was essentially a back-door taxpayer bailout of Goldman Sachs through the medium of AIG.
Goldman Sachs has also agreed to massive fines that relate to deceptive practices related to deceiving clients on their investments. The Wall Street Journal reported March 13 that “Goldman Sachs’s clearing arm, meanwhile, agreed to pay a $7 million fine to the CFTC for failing to diligently supervise accounts that it carried for a brokerage client.” The recent Commodity Futures Trading Commission fine was not the only recent fine the company has had to pay, nor even the largest. Goldman Sachs agreed to a $550 million fraud settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission back in 2010, the largest in Wall Street history. The settlement surrounded a Goldman-created mortgage-backed security called Abacus-2007-AC1, which was sold to clients even as the company had bet that the stock would lose money. The New York Times reported back in 2010 of the fine that “it would represent only a small financial dent for Goldman, which reported $13.39 billion in profit last year.”
The Abacus deal was not the only mortgage-backed security (often called Collateralized Debt Obligations, or CDO) Goldman sold against the interests of its clients as the housing bubble faced collapse. Tom Montag, the head of the division that dealt with a mortgage-backed security called Timberwolf, told fellow Goldman Sachs trader Daniel Sparks, “That Timberwolf was one sh***y deal” in a corporate email. Goldman Sachs continued to market Timberwolf mortgage-backed securities even after Montag’s email. The firm still faces a $1.08 billion lawsuit over the Timberwolf deal and is in arbitration with a South Korean insurer which bought Timberland CDOs and lost money.
Goldman Sachs has claimed that its corporate focus of looking out for clients has changed since the mortgage crisis, but a Bloomberg.com column by William D. Cohan seems to belie that wishful image. Cohan described Goldman Sachs’ role in the El Paso Corp./Kinder Morgan 2011 merger: “A blistering opinion handed down Feb. 29 by a Delaware judge makes a convincing case that Goldman Sachs’s heads-I-win, tails-you-lose approach to business hasn’t changed at all. And it goes a long way toward explaining why, almost four years after the financial crisis, the system is still rigged.” Goldman had influence on both companies’ boards, and rigged the system so that they got paid whether the merger took place or not and whether El Paso was able to spin off its oil and gas exploration unit as part of the merger. Cohan explained that “ if El Paso agreed to merge with Kinder Morgan… Goldman would receive $20 million…. If the spinoff alone occurred, only Goldman Sachs would get paid ($25 million). Heads-I-win, tails-you-lose.”
America’s descent into total tyranny. Obama seizes control over food, farms, livestock, fertilizer and farm equipment across America
This is not a drill… it’s really happening.
With the stroke of a pen, President Obama issued an executive order a few days ago that seizes control over all food and food production resources in the nation: Farms, seeds, tractors, livestock, stored food, food processing centers and even the food in your pantry!It was officially announced by the President, and you can read it yourself at Whitehouse.gov. It’s not just food, either — Obama has seized all water, labor, metals and other resources that he says will be used to “stockpile” supplies for the military and the government.

Climate craziness of the week: Eugenics is making a comeback with climate optimized human engineering
|Bizarre stuff from The Atlantic, though it seems even Bill McKibben is panning him and when you can’t sell Bill McKibben on crazy, well, you’ve entered a whole new plane of crazy. Me? I welcome our new smaller climate optmized green cat-like overlords. – Anthony
How Engineering the Human Body Could Combat Climate Change
From drugs to help you avoid eating meat to genetically engineered cat-like eyes to reduce the need for lighting, a wild interview about changes humans could make to themselves to battle climate change.
One human engineering strategy you mention is a kind of pharmacologically induced meat intolerance. You suggest that humans could be given meat alongside a medication that triggers extreme nausea, which would then cause a long-lasting aversion to meat eating. Why is it that you expect this could have such a dramatic impact on climate change?
Liao: There is a widely cited U.N. Food and Agricultural Organization report that estimates that 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and CO2 equivalents come from livestock farming, which is actually a much higher share than from transportation. More recently it’s been suggested that livestock farming accounts for as much as 51% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. And then there are estimates that as much as 9% of human emissions occur as a result of deforestation for the expansion of pastures for livestock. And that doesn’t even to take into account the emissions that arise from manure, or from the livestock directly. Since a large portion of these cows and other grazing animals are raised for consumption, it seems obvious that reducing the consumption of these meats could have considerable environmental benefits.
Your paper also discusses the use of human engineering to make humans smaller. Why would this be a powerful technique in the fight against climate change?
Liao: Well one of the things that we noticed is that human ecological footprints are partly correlated with size. Each kilogram of body mass requires a certain amount of food and nutrients and so, other things being equal, the larger person is the more food and energy they are going to soak up over the course of a lifetime. There are also other, less obvious ways in which larger people consume more energy than smaller people—for example a car uses more fuel per mile to carry a heavier person, more fabric is needed to clothe larger people, and heavier people wear out shoes, carpets and furniture at a quicker rate than lighter people, and so on.
And so size reduction could be one way to reduce a person’s ecological footprint. For instance if you reduce the average U.S. height by just 15cm, you could reduce body mass by 21% for men and 25% for women, with a corresponding reduction in metabolic rates by some 15% to 18%, because less tissue means lower energy and nutrient needs.
In your paper you suggest that some human engineering solutions may actually be liberty enhancing. How so?
Liao: That’s right. It’s been suggested that, given the seriousness of climate change, we ought to adopt something like China’s one child policy. There was a group of doctors in Britain who recently advocated a two-child maximum. But at the end of the day those are crude prescriptions—what we really care about is some kind of fixed allocation of greenhouse gas emissions per family. If that’s the case, given certain fixed allocations of greenhouse gas emissions, human engineering could give families the choice between two medium sized children, or three small sized children. From our perspective that would be more liberty enhancing than a policy that says “you can only have one or two children.” A family might want a really good basketball player, and so they could use human engineering to have one really large child.

|Hollywood movies are usually presented as a form of entertainment, but their plots often conceal a specific agenda. “Disaster movies”, films about the end of the world through various mass crises, are particularly interesting as they all follow the same basic formula and glorify the same entities. In this article, we’ll look at the disaster movie ‘Contagion’ and how it “teaches” its viewers who to trust and who not to trust during a crisis.
Most people watch movies to be entertained. Well, I for one can say that there was absolutely nothing entertaining about Contagion. In fact, the only difference between this movie and state-sponsored educational movies shown in schools is that with Contagion you actually have to pay to be indoctrinated … and to see Matt Damon. During the cold war, students were shown videos instructing them to “Duck and Cover” in case of a nuclear attack. Contagion conditions the masses to expect martial law and to throw themselves at the first available vaccine in case of a crisis.
Featuring Hollywood mega-stars like Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow, Contagion is a big-ticket Hollywood movie, but also an infomercial promoting specific national and international agencies while encouraging specific behaviors from the public. The plot of the movie appears to follow the big H1N1 scare of 2009 that left many citizens uncertain about the actual risk of the virus. Indeed, after months of terrifying news crowned by a massive vaccination campaign, an important portion of the population concluded that the H1N1 scare was grossly exaggerated and and thought that a vaccine was unnecessary.
This poll taken in November 2009 shows that 53% Canadians believed that the risks associated with the H1N1 virus were exaggerated.
In the wake of this “crisis”, the UN’s World Health Organization (known as the WHO) was harshly criticized and even accused of colluding with Big Pharma to sell vaccines. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) also had its credibility tarnished as investigations revealed that the agency misled the public regarding the number of actual cases of H1N1 (for example, see this report from CBS News). As a result, these two agencies needed a good PR stunt to restore their credibility and to scare the hell out of the public. This is where Contagion comes in.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Contagion was produced with the active cooperation of the CDC, the WHO and other governmental organizations and its function is clear: To present a hyper-realistic disaster scenario to justify the vaccination campaigns promoted by these agencies while discrediting those who criticize them.
Nothing in the movie hints that it is a work of fiction. Quite to the contrary, everything in Contagion is made to be as realistic as possible, using actual locations and governmental agencies, to make the story as plausible – and as frightening to the masses – as possible. As the slogan of the movie says: “Nothing spreads like fear” and, boy, does it try to spread fear. This movie’s message is: “Nothing was exaggerated, and next time there’s a virus outbreak, listen to us … or you’ll die”.
The Function of Disaster Movies
Disaster movies are often action-packed thrill rides that venture in the sometimes fascinating “what if that happened” side of things. While some are very over-the-top and border on fantasy, others, like Contagion, emphasize realism and actual events. These movies tend to “hit home” with the viewers because they lead them to think “this could happen to me”. Disaster movies exploit the latent fear that recent events caused on the psyche on the masses, tapping into the anxiety and trauma they cause in order to create tension and terror in the viewers. Then, the “agenda” aspect of these movies kick in as they propose to the viewers the best (and only) way these issues can be resolved. Specific groups and agencies are cast as honorable, helpful and trustworthy during the time of crisis, while others are portrayed as hindrances and even traitors. The drama that follows becomes a case of predictive programming, as the steps taken in the movie to resolve the problem will thereafter appear normal to the masses if they ever occur in real life.
In his book Propagandes Silencieuses (Silent Propaganda), the journalist and writer Ignacio Ramonet describes the always present underlying message found in disaster movies:
Along with the all-importance of authorities, the masses are inevitably presented as a herd of idiots prone to panic that must be kept in the dark.
Contagion follows Ramonet’s blueprint of disaster movies to a tee. Right from the start, specific organizations are identified as the go-to guys and are automatically given the power to act on a massive scale, namely FEMA, the WHO, the American Red Cross and the CDC.
So what solution does Contagion propose in case of the outbreak of deadly disease? Martial law and mass vaccinations. What will happen if ever an actual disease would break out? Martial law and mass vaccinations. Would the masses questions this type of drastic response to a crisis which might or might not be necessary? No, because hundreds of hours of media content have prepared the masses for this kind of situation. Let’s look at the main components and messages found in Contagion.
Fear Spreads Faster Than Germs
The movie starts by showing how a few sick people, who go about their daily routine, can easily contaminate thousands of people. The point of the introduction is simple: A deadly virus can spread around the world in a matter of days. This realistic yet terrifying scenario is a very effective way to grip the audience and to cause a state of fear. During these scenes, the camera focuses for a few extra seconds on common objects that can transmit germs such as drinking glasses, just long enough for the viewer to realize: “Hey, I sometimes touch these things! That could be me! Aaaah!”
This sick guy could infect the entire bus. To add to the drama and scare factor, they name big cities and their population.
Beware of glasses of water being handed to you…
Not even a mother’s hug is safe.
Most of those who are infected with the virus do not live long. In a series of heartbreaking scenes, one of the main characters, Mitch Emhoff (played by Matt Damon), sees his wife and his son lose their lives to the virus. Viewers watching this tragedy play out are led to think “Hey, that’s the most terrible thing could happen to me! AAaaah!”
Watching Beth Emhoff (played by Gwyneth Paltrow) die from the virus is quite disturbing and certainly helps create a climate of fear.
This movie was released only a two years after the outbreak of H1N1 and the media hype that surrounded it, so that fear is still latent in many people. These scenes from Contagion reactivates the “fear virus” that was planted in people … and adds some. After a few minutes of panic-inducing scenes, most viewers will say “Oh my God, someone do something about this virus! This guy lost his wife and child, that’s awful! AAArgh!”. Heroes do step up to the plate and take charge of things … and it just so happens that they were involved in the making of the movie.
The Organizations That Take Charge
In Contagion, as soon as the virus becomes a threat, the entire American government escapes to an “undisclosed location” and “looks for a way of working online”. Meanwhile, specific real-life non-government organizations (NGOs) are identified by the movie as the “heroes” and the go-to people to handle the crisis. These organizations are promoted to the viewers and are given automatic legitimacy and trustworthiness. However, those who are educated about the world elite’s agenda for a New World Order know that these organizations have been know to push that agenda and everything that goes with it. In short, the movie says: “If a crisis like this happens, the government will disappear, democracy will be suspended and NGOs will take over”.
The agencies identified by the movie are:
The CDC (Center for Disease Control), which has always heavily promoted vaccinations campaigns.
The World Health Organization (WHO) – which was accused, in the wake of the H1N1, of spreading “fear and confusion rather than immediate information”. In the movie however, the WHO is an important factor in the resolution of the problem.
FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and the American Red Cross manage the civilians. Contagion, shows viewers how emergency situations could quickly lead to martial law, which would automatically lead to the creation of civilian camps ran by FEMA, who needed some good PR after Hurricane Katrina.
Of course, the U.S. army is all over the place since martial law is defined as the “imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis”.
So, in the wake of a “biological crisis”, the democratically elected American government basically dissolves and specific organizations (CDC, WHO, FEMA, the U.S. Army) take charge of all aspects of society. And this “taking charge” proceeds in a very specific way: Martial law and civilian camps.
In Contagion, the deadly virus is called MEV-1 and the social result of the outbreak is portrayed in a specific way. First, the general population, always depicted as idiotic, cattle-like and prone to violence, spirals out of control. The masses are always shown panicking, yelling, stealing, fighting and looting. This leads to a general breakdown of social order and a state of lawlessness.
A bunch of rude people looting a pharmacy to obtain medication.
Wherever regular people are put together, all sort of crap ensues. This goes along with the concept of “infantilization” of the masses, who require to be taken charge by “fatherly” authorities. And boy do the authorities take over.
The US Army imposes Martial Law and places the State of Minnesota in quarantine, blocking all traffic out of the state. Those who seek to leave the state are told to turn around and go back home.
Citizens are then directed to FEMA camps.
This stadium has been turned into a FEMA camp.
Civilians (even healthy ones) have their rights revoked and are directed to FEMA camps where they are fed and lodged. In this scene, the lack of “individual meals” to feed all of the camp’s population causes a small riot.
The Conspiracy Theorist
If specific groups and organizations are identified by the movie as “competent” and “trustworthy”, other groups get a very different treatment, namely alternative media. Personified by a blogger named Alan Krumwiede (played by Jude Law), alternative media are presented as unreliable sources bent on sensationalism and profit. In other words, the movie implies that information that does not come from “official” sources is invalid and potentially dangerous. Not exactly a pro-free-speech message.
“Truth Serum”, a blog run by Alan Krumwiede, resembles the many “alternative news” website around the web. This type of information, which does not come from mass media or governmental sources, is definitely not portrayed in a positive light.
Right from the start, Alan Krumwiede is portrayed as a somewhat dodgy blogger with a questionable work ethic and who does not get much respect from the journalistic nor the scientific community. When he tries to get one of his stories published in a newspaper called The Chronicle, he gets rejected due to lack of evidence behind his story. When he contacts a scientist regarding the virus, the scientist replies: “Blogging is not writing, it’s graffiti with punctuation”.
Despite this lack of respect from “competent” bodies, Alan Krumwiede has a wide audience and proudly boasts “millions of unique visitors per day” on his website. On it, he claims that a cure for the MEV-1 virus exists and is named Forsythia but it is repressed by the powers that be to sell vaccines. He also urges his readers not to take the vaccine that is given out by authorities.
The government apparently does not tolerate this kind of dissent. Krumwiede gets set up by an undercover agent to get him arrested. When he discovers the ploy against him the agent tells Krumwiede: “Alan, I didn’t have a choice, they’ve seen your blog”. Government agents then appear out of nowhere and arrest Krumwiede for “security fraud, conspiracy and most likely man slaughter”.
Krumwiede is arrested due to the contents of his blog. Contagion sends out a powerful message against “alternative” information sources: Diverging from “official sources” is dangerous and against the law.
It is later learned that Forsythia was a lie and that Krumwiede made 4.5 million dollars by promoting it to his readers. The chief of Homeland Security wants to put him in jail for a “long, long time”. However, due to his popularity, Krumwiede makes bail because, as the chief of Homeland Security states: “Evidently, there are 12 million people as crazy as you are”.
The character of Alan Krumwiede and the way he is portrayed is interesting for several reasons. First, he reflects the growing influence of blogs and alternative websites on public opinion – a recent phenomena that does not sit well with the elite that seeks to have the monopoly of information. By depicting this character as dishonest, corrupt and even dangerous to the public, the movie justifies the shunning of such writers and even their arrest. Nobody in the movie seems to mind that all of this is in direct violation of the First Amendment.
Second, when the H1N1 vaccine was released in 2009 and mass vaccination campaigns were organized, many citizens and authoritative figures including public health officials, doctors and specialists spoke against it. They claimed that the vaccine was unnecessary, insufficiently tested and that it had negative side-effects. By associating the corrupt figure of Alan Krumwiede with the “anti-vaccine movement”, the movie discredits all of those who question the necessity of mass vaccination campaigns. If another virus should strike, viewers of Contagion might be more prone to ignore these movements. In other words, the movie says: “Conspiracy theorists are corrupt liars that are dangerous to public safety and they should be arrested. Do not listen to them. They make money off phony cures. HOWEVER, those who make even more money off phony vaccines are good. Listen to authorities and get the vaccine … or you’ll die.”
The Ultimate Solution
After months of horror and hundreds of millions of deaths, a final solution emerges and saves humanity: Mass vaccination.
The only solution to do virus problem? A mass vaccination campaign.
Those who receive the vaccine get the privilege of wearing a scannable wristband. This allows them to go to public places such as shopping malls.
You get vaccinated, you get a barcode and go places. You don’t get vaccinated, you stay at home … and you die.
Contagion may be presented as a work of fiction, but it communicates several important messages that authorities need the public to accept. To do so, the movie defines a specific problem that has actually occurred in the past, it identifies the agencies that have the right to take charge of the situation and proposes the only solution required to fix the problem. That solution is not pretty: The dissolution of the government, the imposition of martial law, the creation of civilian camps, forced vaccination campaigns and the suppression of free speech. Democracy and civil rights are summarily suspended and we witness the establishment of a highly controlled and monitored society (using barcodes).
Are disaster movies such as Contagion solely created for entertainment or are they also used to teach the public about what is acceptable and what is not when a disaster occurs? Would the World Health Organization participate in a movie simply to entertain people? Interesting fact: The movie was released on DVD at the same time the WHO got accused of exaggerating the death rate of the new H5N1 bird flu. The WHO has also recently allowed the publication of controversial research describing the creation of a mutant and highly contagious version of the virus. Could a weaponized version of the virus be purposely released on the public to justify martial law? Wait, maybe I shouldn’t say things like that. I don’t want to get arrested for “security fraud, conspiracy and most likely man slaughter”.
