Can a collapse of global civilization be avoided? [04 Feb 2013|09:23am]

Here's an interesting article from the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Biological Sciences on the state of the world today: http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/280/1754/20122845.full

Section 6 is of particular relevance to us.

What is really happening in Syria [09 Jun 2012|08:58pm]

ANNA News: About a mechanism of provocations for UN Security Council

http://maramus.livejournal.com/89425.html
Investigation of Marat Musin, a journalist with ANNA News 




      A week ago, bandits from Daraa city kidnapped 16 Druzes, citizens of Suwayda city. Martial Druzes decided not to lose time and have taken over 170 Islamists among Daraa citizens for an exchange. Bandits were forced to exchange kidnapped people for their comrades.  At this point the provocation against Druzes could be considered over. However, today six Druze girls were kidnapped in Damascus. In the evening, one of them managed to make a phone call from her cell phone.  Turned out, kidnapped girls were already at the Turkey border that is more than 400 kilometers from Damascus. 
      Recently, Alawites’ villages were attacked. Taking this fact into consideration a Western policy of civil war initiation in Syria is being traced here. Today they provoke Druzes, tomorrow they will provoke Alawites. Consequently, in the coming days we can expect  a major provocation against Shiites or Christians, Ismailis and Kurds, Circassians and Armenians where their population is dense enough.
       Large detachments of gunmen are needed to organize such provocations.  Few hours ago, they saw a showdown of armed bandits with other group of people near the hotel.  They did not hide firearms. Bandits were caring their guns openly, keeping it behind their belts over shirts. Another skirmish occurred in Harasta region.

Terra Nova [29 Jun 2011|08:35pm]

Has anyone seen the trailers for this new tv show? Humanity destroys the earth, so build a time travel machine to go back into the dinosaur ages and destroy the earth then too.

Good grief. I'm tired of these movies and shows where the moral of the story is that we're destroying earth... but it's okay, keep doing it anyway!

Earth Day is a good opportunity to set up a VHEMT information booth or table at one of the celebrations. Time to reserve a spot and start planning -- if you're up for it. http://vhemt.org/outreach.htm

Global Population Speak Out [05 Jan 2011|06:17am]

lesuknight
Each February, Global Population Speak Out participants raise awareness of human population density. The idea is to create a media buzz by concentrating our efforts into one month. Any form of speaking out is welcome: blogs or comments on blogs, letters to editors, status update or LJ entry, calls to radio talk shows, or whatever forum is available.

To pledge your support for GPSO 2011, just sign up at http://www.populationspeakout.org/pledge-now

"...$5 to $10 for a year of contraception." requiring no medical training [28 Sep 2010|05:42pm]

"One is a vaginal ring that releases hormones.... She said that women found it easy to insert the ring themselves, which is crucial in poor countries where there are few health workers.... cost in developing countries would eventually be $5 to $10 for a year of contraception."

"Sino-implant (II), a tiny pair of rods inserted just under the skin (typically in the arm) to release hormones. Other implants are widely used, but one great advantage of the Sino-implant is that it can last four or five years and costs $3 a year or less.... 100,000 units were distributed last year — with no safety issues so far."

"reversible [male] sterilization. It’s an injection that hardens to create a plug in the duct carrying sperm. To reverse it, a health worker injects a solvent that dissolves the plug. The plan is to introduce this on a broad scale in the next few years."

Very happy to see this movement here on LJ!

I'm Angel, a hermaphrodite, and cannot reproduce, but if I could I would not!

I have been bothered by increased senseless breeding for a long time. Nice to see others are bothered by it as well!

Why is this a bad thing? [12 Jul 2010|03:28pm]

Widespread male infertility sweeping the globe

Monday, July 12, 2010 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Nearly 20 years ago, Danish scientists first broke the news to the world that men from Western countries seem to be slowly becoming infertile. Recent research seems to back this up as well, with average sperm counts having dropped to half of what they were 50 years ago.

According to reports, nearly 20 percent of men between the ages of 18 and 25 have sperm counts that are abnormally low. To put this in perspective, consider the fact that in the 1940s, men had an average of about 100 million sperm cells per millimeter of semen (m/ml). Today, the average is around 60m/ml. Those among the 20 percent with abnormal levels have less than 20m/ml.

So what is the cause behind decreasing sperm counts? Realistically, there is probably more than just one cause. Environmental toxins, synthetic food and water additives, and estrogenic substances in food are all likely culprits.

"It's most likely a reflection of the fact that many environmental and lifestyle changes over the past 50 years are inherently detrimental to sperm production," explained Professor Richard Sharpe, a fertility research expert at the Medical Research Council, in a U.K. report.

But what scientists believe may be the biggest cause of poor semen quality in men has more to do with what their mothers were exposed to during pregnancy, than what the men themselves are exposed to throughout their lifetimes.

A case in point is the disastrous chemical accident that occurred in 1976 in Seveso, Italy. The incident caused the highest known human exposure to toxic chemical dioxins. It was later revealed that pregnant women who were exposed to the chemical during that time bore male children who ended up having poor sperm counts.

Other studies also seem to lend credence to the idea that lifelong sperm counts are determined during the early stages of male fetal development. Interference with the Sertoli cells, which are responsible for proper sperm development during fetal development, can lead to lifelong sperm production problems in males.

"Maternal-lifestyle factors in pregnancy can have quite substantial effects on sperm counts in sons in adulthood, and the most logical mechanism by which this could occur is via reducing the number of Sertoli cells," explained Professor Sharpe.

In other words, prenatal exposure to toxic chemicals is a serious threat to male health, which ultimately threatens the existence of mankind.

Should This Be the Last Generation? [10 Jun 2010|01:44am]

fireaphid
In case you're interested, this New York Times Op. Ed. is the most mainstream presentation of a voluntary end to the human population via ceasing to reproduce that I've seen yet.  Unfortunately, the comments are rather disappointing.  What do you think of it?
