The risk of flooding in the United States is changing regionally, and the reasons could be shifting rainfall patterns and the amount of water in the ground. In a new study, University of Iowa engineers determined that, in general, the threat of flooding is growing in the northern half of the U.S. and declining in the southern half. The American …
In the background of modern life, as people go on debating politics and working for a living, something dreadful is happening to the eco-systems which support us. Major disasters like the ongoing radioactive leak at Fukushima, the apocalyptic fires burning throughout Indonesia, even bee colony collapse disorder, seem to fall out of view in day-to-day life, as we seem to have …
The US/NATO quest for total global dominance continues to move forward while it is simultaneously fracturing from within. The US supported ally, Saudi Arabia, has just added to it’s growing mountain of dead civilians by slaughtering a funeral gathering in Yemen. Former US allies, like the Philippines, are kicking the US military out of their country. Many other nations are rapidly descending into chaos. The geoengineers are flowing moisture into the Western US but have so far syphoned off much of it with a constant aerosol spraying assault. The atmospheric aerosol saturation (and radio frequency transmissions) broadcasts the moisture out into massive expanses of largely rainless cloud cover. Welcome to solar radiation management which is worsening the overall warming of the planet, not mitigating it. And for those who have bought into “the more Co2, the better” equation, a new study now proves that trees and plants have long since passed their peak ability to absorb this greenhouse gas. The latest addition of Global Alert News is below Apathy and angst will not save us, only properly prioritized collective action can yet make a difference. Each and every one of us can have a profound impact for the better on the overall paradigm, we simply need to try. Make your voice heard.

Tonight from Australia we have John Pilger discussing “The rise of the world’s new ruling elite and the misery left in the wake of their climb to the top.”

VIDEO: John Pilger – Obama & Empire
John Pilger is one of the world’s most renowned investigative journalists and documentary filmmakers. Originally from Australia, John started his career with Reuters and the London Daily Mail, becoming its chief foreign correspondent and reporting from all over the world, notably Vietnam. He is the youngest journalist to receive the UK’s highest Journalist of the Year Award. He has reported on the civil rights movement in the US, marched to Washington following the assassination of Martin Luther King, reported from many war zones including Indonesia, Cambodia and the Middle East and conducted a 4 year investigation into the damage caused by the drug Thalidomide. John’s documentary films include coverage about the catastrophe in Cambodia, the genocide in East Timor, and several about the history of Australia and human rights abuses against Australia’s original Aboriginal population. His books have covered Iraq, Kosovo, and critiques of liberal media. Recently, one of John’s most important books — “The New Rulers of the World” — that exposes the underpinnings and motives of modern imperialism and the global economy has been updated and released. It is regarded by many as one of the most important investigations about postmodern power. John’s website is JohnPilger.com
What if you found out that just four commodities—commodities so pervasive in modern life that we encounter them daily—are responsible for more than half of the world’s tropical deforestation? What if you learned that many of the other commonly cited causes of deforestation, such as cocoa, sugar, and coffee, are now only marginal parts of the global problem? Surprisingly, all …
Secret documents found in the Australian National Archives provide a glimpse of how one of the greatest crimes of the 20th century was executed and covered up. They also help us understand how and for whom the world is run. The documents refer to East Timor, now known as Timor-Leste, and were written by diplomats in the Australian embassy in …

That might begin to become clearer when we look more closely at the foreign economic policy actions of the Indonesian government of President Joko Widodo.
