GENESIS 6:11-13
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.(WORLD TERRORISM,MURDERS)(HAMAS IN HEBREW IS VIOLENCE)
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence (TERRORISM)(HAMAS) through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

HOSEA 4:1-3
1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

23  And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.
24  The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.


ISAIAH 30:26-27
26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold,(7X OR 7-DEGREES HOTTER) as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people,(ISRAEL) and healeth the stroke of their wound.
27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:

7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.


3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.(enviromentalists-(COP 21 CLIMATE KOOKS) and animal rights nutjobs-mentalcases won't like this result)
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they(False World Church and Dictator) have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.



24 November 2015-CEOs of 78 major firms call for carbon pricing COP21 deal-Worldwide, Carbon Reduction, COP 21, Policy

CEO’s of 78 major companies, including Siemens and HSBC, have called on world leaders to include carbon pricing in a global climate deal due to be agreed at the United Nations climate summit in Paris next month.The group, which has been organised by the World Economic Forum and has a combined annual turnover of $2.1 trillion, wrote an open letter to heads of state in the build up to the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference which starts on 30 November.The group includes Accenture, BT Group, Dow Chemical, PepsiCo, Nestlé, Unilever and PwC and calls for an ambitious deal in Paris that will encourage economic growth and create jobs.The letter says: "We believe that effective climate policies have to include explicit or implicit prices on carbon achieved via market mechanisms or coherent legislative measures according to national preferences."The chief executives say that carbon pricing would "trigger low-carbon investment and transform current emission patterns at a significant scale."The business leaders also explain how they are taking voluntary actions to cut their carbon emissions and reduce their carbon footprints.The 193 UN member states will meet in the French capital on 30 November and will try to agree a historic climate deal with the aim of cutting greenhouse gas emissions and preventing an average global temperature increase of 2°C that scientists say would cause dangerous impacts of climate change including sea level rises, flooding and drought.

27 May 2015-Carbon pricing market hits $50bn in 2015-Worldwide, Carbon Reduction, Policy

The carbon pricing market reached US$50 billion in 2015, according to a new study by the World Bank, despite Australia scrapping its pricing mechanism last year.Emissions trading schemes were valued at $34 billion as of 1 April 2015, up from $32 billion the previous year, despite Australia Prime Minister Tony Abbott repealing the country’s carbon pricing mechanism in July 2014.The new study has, for the first time, valued the world’s carbon taxes which were found to be worth $14 billion, meaning emissions trading schemes are now not the only mechanism of putting a price on carbon.The Carbon Pricing Watch assessment analyses the world's carbon markets and a more detailed report is due later in 2015.The value of emissions trading schemes was calculated by the World Bank by multiplying the allowances issued for each scheme, multiplied by the price.The value of carbon taxes was based on government budgets for 2015, or by the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions covered by the carbon price on 1 April 2015.The study found that carbon emissions are currently being priced in 39 countries and 23 other subnational regions with carbon pricing covering around 12 per cent of the world's emissions.The volume of carbon that was covered by a pricing scheme in 2015 rose from the from almost 6 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2014 up to 7 gigatonnes.Australia’s pricing scheme covered approximately 60 per cent of the country's emissions, and charged around US$20 for every tonne of carbon dioxide emitted.The expansion of global carbon pricing was mainly due to South Korea’s emissions trading system which became operational on 1 January 2015.Portugal introduced a carbon tax of $5 per tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent on 1 January 2015 which is expected to generate $104 million this year.California and Quebec extended their cap-and-trade systems this year to include transport fuels, which has increased their coverage of GHG emissions from 35 per cent to 85 per cent.The U.N. is hosting the crucial COP21 climate conference in Paris in December and carbon pricing mechanisms are expected to form a key part of the global deal scheduled to be signed by nearly 200 states.

Climate: Germany, France open to lower temperature ceiling-By EUOBSERVER-dec 4,15

Today, 09:30-Germany's deputy environment minister Flasbarth said Thursday the globally agreed ceiling of 2 degrees Celsius temperature rise was too high, and that "1.5C" should be mentioned in the Paris treaty. His remarks followed French president Hollande's plea for 1.5C "if possible". The Paris climate conference will last one more week.

Climate and borders are back This WEEK By Eszter Zalan-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 4. Dec, 20:14-The effects of the Paris attacks still linger in Europe. French regional elections will leave their mark on the beginning of the week, as Europe finds out to what extent the attacks have contributed to the expectedly strong results of Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Front.After a vote in Denmark on 3 December against more cooperation with the EU in police and justice issues, polls suggest French voters will be siding with eurosceptic forces over the weekend, which will be another sign that constituencies are turning away from Europe, as it struggles to tackle the terror threat and the refugee crisis.-Climate deal-The week however will be dominated by the 21st UN climate change conference in Paris, where around 80 world leaders are trying to come to an agreement.A deal to limit carbon emissions is supposed to be struck by Friday (11 December), but discussions might continue into the weekend.The EU’s position is to demand a legally binding and comprehensive agreement, and to reduce emissions by at least 50 percent by 2050 compared to 1990 and near zero or below by 2100 in order to keep global warming under 2°C.Poland, which recently elected a right wing government, refuses any binding agreement, as it says it is harmful to its economy, which heavily relies on coal.-Borders are back-Borders will be back on the EU’s agenda, as the European Parliament on Monday (7 December) will hear from the EU’s border agency, Frontex, the asylum support agency Easo, and the EU Commission on the planned hotspots - registration centers for migrants in Greece and Italy.As setting up the five planned spots in Greece and six in Italy has been slower than expected, the officials will give a feedback on progress to MEPs.MEPs are expected to vote on Thursday (10 December) on sharing the personal data of European airline passengers, after EU interior ministers backed the deal on Friday (4 December). It would give the green light to an EU plan to sweep up personal data of airline passengers. Socialists and the center-right EPP group are in support of the legislation. Liberals might still oppose the deal.Monday and Tuesday will see an EU-Western Balkans Ministerial Forum on justice and home affairs in Sarajevo, where ministers from the region will follow up on the mini-summit organized in October in Brussels for the region’s leaders to better coordinate migration flows.-Money still talks-The Eurogroup will meet on Monday (7 December).Besides the usual suspect, Greece, the group of finance ministers for the eurozone will focus on Portugal, which has so far failed to submit a budget plan to the commission due to a domestic political standoff. It is expected to do so by the end of the year.Eurogroup members will impatiently wait to see what kind of measures the new left-wing government will propose, as some fear it will roll back the austerity introduced by the €78 billion bailout program.-Ukraine checking in-The EU-Ukraine Association Council, a body managing relationships with candidate countries, will meet on Monday (7 December), as the EU-Ukraine free trade agreement is to come into effect in January. Russia has objected to the deal, and the three have failed to come to an agreement in Brussels.The trade deal is to go ahead, but complicating matters, the Dutch are holding a non-binding referendum in April on whether to reject the association agreement.Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker will receive Ukraine’s prime minister Arsenij Yatsenyuk on Monday.The week will also see the first Association Council with Bosnia and Herzegovina (11 December), chaired by the EU’s foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, after the Stabilisation and Association Agreement (SAA), a stepping stone to membership, entered into force over the summer.

Brazil pins renewable energy hopes on 2nd generation ethanol-By Natalia Ramos | Agence France-Presse – dec 4,15-yahoonews

Piracicaba (Brazil) (AFP) - Brazil thinks it has the sweet solution to ridding the world of reliance on fossil fuels for cars and other vehicles: sugar cane ethanol 2.0.Ethanol -- fuel derived from agricultural products -- is already well established in Brazil, where more than 60 percent of 36 million vehicles run on ethanol or ethanol-fuel flex systems, rather than straight petrol or diesel.Brazil, which produces ethanol from sugar cane, is the second biggest producer after the United States, which uses corn as the base.But sugar cane, requiring vast plantations often hacked out of carbon dioxide-absorbing forests, poses its own problems in the fight against global warming.Now Brazil is championing what it says could be an answer to that fatal flaw.Second-generation ethanol, dubbed 2.0 or 2G, can be obtained from the remnants of sugar cane after sugar and standard ethanol production, and therefore requires no new plantations."It's a revolutionary product. The big advantage of second generation ethanol is that it boosts the efficiency of the system without needing to expand the cultivated area," said Antonio Stuchi, production director at Raizen, a factory run in a joint venture of Shell and Brazil's Cosan.Located in Piracicaba, at the center of sugar country about 100 kilometers (roughly 60 miles) from Sao Paulo, Raizen produces sugar, ethanol and 2G ethanol.However, while there is capacity for 11 million gallons (42 million liters) of the new ethanol, the goal for 2015 is a modest 2.6 million gallons, all to be exported to Europe.And for now, Raizen and the GranBio factory in the northeast of Brazil are the only sites producing 2G ethanol, making them pioneers in a technology only just getting started elsewhere, including in the United States and Italy.- Fuel of the future? -The 2014-2015 harvest saw 7.5 billion gallons of traditional ethanol produced in Brazil. President Dilma Rousseff, who visited the Raizen factory in October -- her second visit in four months -- said she would like to see that rise to 13 billion gallons.For Rousseff, first and second generation ethanol are a key to Brazil being able to meet its pledge of a 37 percent reduction in carbon emissions before 2025 and a 43 percent cut by 2030.Eager to boost 2G ethanol, the government financed 87 percent of the $60 million facilities at Raizen."This factory qualifies us as a country in international climate change negotiations," Rousseff said in July, referring to the ongoing COP21 climate talks in Paris."The fact that we don't need to develop more sources for the 2G, nor to expand the plantations, helps contribute to a significant drop in our gas emissions," Raizen's Stuchi said.Still, ethanol in general remains dogged by questions, even if 2G removes the need for destruction of forests with new plantations.The most basic of these is the suitability of using agricultural land to produce fuel for cars rather than food. Others point to the energy consumption required in the production process.- Growing pains -Brazil's ethanol industry dates back to the 1970s when the hunt was on for alternative fuels during the oil crisis. Today, low sugar prices and also a steep drop in oil prices have taken some of the momentum out of ethanol expansion.Experts say that in Brazil, another factor holding back ethanol is the government's heavy subsidy of gasoline to keep fuel prices down.With the pressure to cut back on polluting fuels growing and the ethanol technology entering a new stage, some believe sugar fuel could come of age. In Brazil, a raising of gasoline taxes and an increase in the ethanol component of flex fuels could support that.But ethanol still only accounts for five percent of Brazil's energy output. And while second generation ethanol has promise, it is not yet produced on a scale that would allow it to compete commercially with other fuels.Antonio Bonomi, a researcher at the National Science and Technology Bioethanol Laboratory in Campinas, near Sao Paulo, said more government support for 2G ethanol is needed, since it currently costs 30 percent more than the traditional version to produce."It's important to increase bioenergy resources and if this can be done at a competitive price, it will be unbeatable. We have to have an alternative to oil," he said.

3 December 2015-Obama pledges $30m for climate risk insurance at COP21-Worldwide, COP 21, Finance, Policy

US President Barack Obama announced at COP21 on Tuesday that the US will commit $30 million to climate risk insurance schemes in the Pacific, Central America and Africa.The money is part of a wider set of actions to assist nations that are the most vulnerable to climate change and will boost their resiliency to impacts such as rising sea levels, flooding and droughts, according to the US Department of State.As part of the initiative, the US will provide climate data, tools and services, and will incorporate climate change considerations into development assistance.Amjad Abdulla of the Maldives and chief negotiator for the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) said the development is“a sign of progress… we now encourage our partners to recognise the full scale of the challenge we face and help us tackle it together.”The move is in line with the target that G7 leaders set earlier this year to increase the number of people from the most vulnerable developing countries with access to climate risks insurance by up to 400 million by 2020.The newly announced finance from the US will support the Pacific Catastrophic Risk Assessment and Financing Initiative and the African Risk Capacity programme, and will expand the Caribbean Catastrophic Risk Insurance Facility to cover Central American nations.In June, Germany pledged to provide €150 million to initiate the programme and catalyse private sector involvement.


EU ministers back air passenger data sweep By Nikolaj Nielsen-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 4. Dec, 19:53-Interior ministers backed an EU plan to sweep up the personal data of airline passengers but may face opposition among some MEPs when it goes to vote next week.Luxembourg's deputy prime minister Etienne Schneider on Friday (4 December) announced the ministerial agreement on the European passenger name record (PNR)."After many years of discussion we've finally been able to get an agreement on a European PNR," he told reporters in Brussels.PNR is meant to help police and intelligence agencies to track down possible terrorists and criminals by allowing them access to travel dates, ticket information, contact details, travel agency details, means of payment, seat numbers, and luggage details.Law enforcement would be able to view all the data, including the passenger's name, for up to five years by accessing a dedicated database. Names are masked after six months but can be unmasked at any point upon request. After five years, the data is deleted.Flights inside the EU from all 28 member states as well as those entering and leaving the EU would be tracked under the agreement."We will all introduce the intra-European flights and we will all introduce the charter flights," said Schneider.Not everyone believes the proposal can be of much use.Giovanni Buttarelli, the European data protection supervisor, told this website in an interview in September that "no elements reasonably substantiate the need for the default collection of massive amounts of the personal information of millions of travellers."But British conservative MEP Timothy Kirkhope, who is steering the bill through the parliament, said the system needs to be put in place immediately.Member states had initially wanted a 12 month retention period before masking the data but agreed to reducing it to six months if parliament included intra-EU flights in the scope of the directive, said a parliament source.But despite almost five years of talks, the deal is still not quite done.Kirkhope had earlier in the week voiced concern after the centre-right EPP, the socialists S&D, and the liberal Alde imposed new conditions he said could possibly derail the agreement.The groups are at odds because some want mandatory requirements, among other things, to make sure member states share the information with one another.MEPs in the civil liberties committee will vote on the text Thursday (10 December) before it goes to plenary vote in January or in February.Earlier this year, French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve lobbied MEPs to get the agreement signed.This week, the French prime minister wrote to the Socialist leader in the EU Parliament, Gianni Pittella, urging him to "work on adopting this essential counter-terrorism text by the end of the year."On Friday, he told reporters the ministerial agreement had ticked all the French demands.Pressure to get the deal wrapped has also mounted considerably since 130 people were gunned down in Paris in November.German centre-right MEP Monika Hohlmeier, who speaks on behalf of the group in the civil liberties committee, told this website that she is still satisfied with the ministerial result."Nothing is perfect but this is a very very good basis and a very good result. I am really thankful for the ministers of interior that they have decided quickly and it is now the parliament to decide quickly," she said.The Socialists offered a similar line."We will look in detail at the text now agreed but we don't expect major problems, neither for the vote in the committee nor in the plenary", said the group's spokesperson, Utta Tuttlies.Dutch liberal MEP Sophie In't Veld, for her part, said member states must be required to share information they gather to better crack down on terrorists.The European Commission has also helped finance national PNR systems in 14 member states. In 2013, it awarded some €50 million towards the projects.At €17.5 million, France received the biggest amount of the EU money to help set up its own system.The United Kingdom is, for the moment, the only member state that has a fully fledged PNR system.
