ecology

The first scientific study of ecology was done by the Greek scholar Theophrastus in 325 BC. Theophrastus wrote about the relationship between organisms and between organisms and their environment.

ecology is defined as:

relationship between organisms and their environment

branch of sociology that is concerned with studying the relationships
between human groups and their physical and social environments

study of the detrimental effects of modern industrialization on the environment,
with a view toward prevention or reversal through conservation.

"All organisms and microsystems depend on the health of the ecosystem in which they live, and each ecosystem depends on other, distant ecosystems. All higher life forms depend on the bacteria which maintain a life-supporting atmosphere. While life on earth can sustain the loss of some species, each species depends on the whole. None can exist in isolation on a bare and lifeless planet." - Charles Eisenstein

environment

Chinese charater for environment

environment is defined as:

place an organism inhabits

circumstances of surroundings of an organism

totality of circumstances surrounding an organism or group of organisms

combination of external physical conditions that affect and influence the growth, development, and survival of an organism or group of organisms

complex of social and cultural conditions affecting the nature
of the life of an individual or the lives of a community of individuals


"Man, endowed with reason,
has the power to create, so that
he can add to what he has been given.

But up to now man has not
been a Creator, only a destroyer.

Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up,
wild life becomes extinct, the climate is ruined

and the land grows poorer and uglier every day."-

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904), Russian

"We shall never understand the natural environment until we see it as a living organism."
Paul Brooks

Science, like theology, reveals transcendent truths about a changing Earth. The best scientists are moral individuals who seek the truth. Corruption of the process of seeking the truth undermines not just democracy but civilization.

so many board feet of timber, or so many boxcars of untermenschen." - Derrick Jensen

cost-benefit analysis

John Graham's cost-benefit analysis in conjunction with a corporatist interpretation of Milton Friedman's Chicago School of Economics ideology is fatally flawed and thus spiritually corrupt because both neglect to take into account the effects produced on life in general and specifically the lives of the citizens of the civilization they pretend to serve!

John Graham, a Wise Use sycophant, founded the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis in 1989 and started the pseudoscience of cost-benefit analysis which claims to be able to compare the monetary cost of the implementation of new laws against that laws benefit to the social culture. In John Graham analysis' if a fish has no commercial value and 10 million fish die because of toxic pollution the economic cost is zero, as they have no commercial value!

In John Graham's cost-benefit analysis it does not matter if the value of the life that is being analyzed is fish or human. People are going to die anyhow. Baby boomer retirees have given all they can give to the economic system and as such in any cost-benefit analysis it is economically better for society if these used up hulks just die as they are no longer producing for the system. (Perhaps if industry developed many different types of chemicals that ultimately cause premature death Social Security costs would fall. Oh wait they already do - in the food - transfat, high fructose corn syrup and chemicals, like the artificial butter flavoring, diacetyl and melamine - and in the air, earth and water - fluoride, perfluorooctanoic acid, methyl tert-butyl ether, bisphenol A, phthalates, pyrethroids, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, polytetrafluoroethylene, perchlorate, mercury, trichloroethylene, polychlorinated biphenyls, lead, asbestos and organophosphates.)

"At the shallowest level cost-benefit analysis' is a cheap deception of the general public. At its worst this approach represents a serious erosion in the way a democracy deals with science. You create high-sounding credentials and talk in tones that appear scientifically sensible, while all the time you are just fronting for a political agenda. If you believe in a rational universe, in enlightenment, in knowledge, and in a search for the truth the George Walker Bush White House is an absolute disaster." - Princeton University scientist Michael Oppenheimer

"Environmentalists do not view economists as the enemy because cost-benefit analysis is thoroughly unromantic; economists view the environment as invisible because their cost-benefit analysis is fatally flawed. A full cost accounting of industrial practices reveals how much the natural services of ecosystems threatened or destroyed by development and industrial pollution are actually worth in addition to the real value of natural resources consumed and wasted. Environmentalists are simply not in thrall to the church of neo-liberal economics and the priests of predatory corporatism, who are spending our principal and deferring environmental debt like there's no tomorrow."- Andrew Christie

John Graham was appointed by George Walker Bush to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in 2001.

John Graham's central role is undermining environmental protection through 'research' papers based on cost-benefit analysis. John Graham has blocked every rule change that protects the environment including two dozen proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency. Rules John Graham has fought to have rescinded include reduced arsenic levels in drinking water, reduced pollution from coal burning plants and regulation of fecal waste from industrial factory farms.

Cost-benefit analysis = only 50 humans out of a thousand will die prematurely from cancer over the next five years and the cost to save the 200,000 thousand or so people that will die prematurely would require entire industry upgrades costing perhaps 200 billion dollars or a million per individual saved from premature death ! It is therefore not economically feasible, imprudent and unwise to change our procedures to save those people. Since Transnational elite can and does chose to live far from toxic polluters their chance of dying from cancer due to toxins approaches zero.

factory farm

Industrial farming has been labeled as CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations)

Wise Use ideology has engineered the passage of laws in at least 13 States making it a crime to photograph industrial factory farm animals!

"Factory farmed animals such as cattle, pigs and chickens, live in unnatural and cruel conditions, which do not allow them to live the way nature intended. Factory farmers treat them as commodities rather than living, breathing, sentient beings that feel pain and suffer, just as we do. It's time to make changes, not just because of the harm to our health and environment but because having respect for all beings will help create a more humane world." - Valerie Belt

"Recently evolving intensive farming practice of raising pigs and poultry in adjacent sheds is unsound. Within the swine population, we now have a mammalian-adapted virus that is extremely promiscuous." - Dr. Robert Webster, world's leading flu virus evolution expert

"If you wanted to create global pandemics, you'd build as many of these factory farms as possible. That's why the development of swine flu isn't a surprise to those in the public health community. In 2003, the American Public Health Association - the oldest and largest in world - called for a moratorium of factory farming because they saw something like this would happen. It may take something as serious as a pandemic to make us realize the real cost of factory farming." - Dr. Michael Greger

Using the Legal System to Fight Factory Farms | Michele Merkel | TEDxManhattan

The increased use of antibiotics in animal production has gone hand-in-hand with the development of factory farms - industrial-style livestock operations. Thousands of animals are crammed into the unhygienic, crowded quarters of a typical industrial-style livestock operation, and antibiotics are dispensed constantly through the animals' feed.

Twenty-five million pounds of antibiotics are fed to livestock in the US annually - eight times more than the amount used as human medicine. Six of the 17 classes of antibiotics used to promote growth in animals are also used to treat diseases in humans. A Harvard University study showed that antibiotic-resistant genes found in bacteria infecting humans were identical to some of the same bacteria infecting animals.

The Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production recommended:

"Ban the non-therapeutic use of antimicrobials in food animal production to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance to medically important antibiotics and other microbials."

1998 In the nation's largest pig farm, a North Carolina factory farm, an aggressive H3N2 virus of a never-before-described triple hybrid of three viruses - a human virus, a pig virus and a bird virus - was discovered.

2009 Swine flu pandemic starts at a Smithfield Foods - the world's largest pork packer and hog producer - massive hog-raising operation in Perote, Mexico, in the state of Vera Cruz. A Smithfield subsidiary, Granjas Carrol, raises 950,000 hogs per year. Residents of Perote believed the outbreak had been caused by contamination from pig breeding farms located in the area which polluted the atmosphere and local water bodies and in turn led to the disease outbreak.

A municipal health official stated that preliminary investigations indicated that the disease vector was a type of fly that reproduces in pig waste and that the outbreak was linked tothe global industrial pig farms. According to residents the organic and fecal waste produced by Granjas Carrol isn't adequately treated. Swarms of flies hovering around waste lagoons transfer respiratory ailments.

Mexican health agency Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social has acknowledged that the original carrier for the flu could be the "clouds of flies" that multiply in the Smithfield subsidiary's manure lagoons.

"Adrian Gibbs, 75, who collaborated on research that led to the development of Roche Holding AG's Tamiflu drug, said in an interview that he intends to publish a report suggesting the new strain may have accidentally evolved in eggs scientists use to grow viruses and drugmakers use to make vaccines. Gibbs said he came to his conclusion as part of an effort to trace the virus's origins by analyzing its genetic blueprint." - Jason Gale and Simeon Bennett

Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain

Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain (CSCAR) operated between 1983 and 1991 to oppose tightening the Clean Air Act. In a 1986 letter sent to more than 600,000 constituents, CSCAR claimed that the acid rain bill would cost some $110 billion to industry and utilities and increase the electricity rate by 30 percent. Citizens for Sensible Control of Acid Rain was funded by the coal and electric industry. Specific companies included: American Cyanamid Co., Consolidation Coal Co., Indianapolis Power and Light Co., Jersey Central Power and Light Co., Metropolitan Edison Co., Ohio Edison Co., Pennsylvania Electric Co., Peabody Holding Co., Southern Co., Services Union Electric Co.

The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition

The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC) is a now defunct industry funded PR front group run by the APCO Worldwide public relations firm which worked to hang the label of "junk science" on environmentalists. Created in 1993, TASSC began as a front for Philip Morris which was attempting to discredit ETS (Environmental Tobacco Smoke) research as a long-term cause of increased cancer and heart problem rates in the community - especially among office workers and children living with smoking parents. TASSC advanced industry-friendly positions on a wide range of topics, including global warming, smoking, phthalates, and pesticides.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
