Man-made climate change and floods: 50 expert, science-informed views re extreme floods & climate change
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Wednesday January 19, 2011
1 comment
The incidence of floods has greatly increased throughout the world in recent decades. However, because the day to day weather is highly variable one cannot attribute any specific weather event (such as the current Asian, South American and Australian floods) to man-made global warming. It is clear that increased atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution leads successively to global warming, increased sea temperature, increased evaporation, increased air moisture and thence to increased (...)

Scientific opinions, global warming & 2010-2011 Pakistan, Brazil, Sri Lanka & Australia flood disasters
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Saturday January 15, 2011
Because the day to day weather is highly variable one cannot attribute the severity of any specific weather event (such as the current La Niña-associated Queensland and Eastern and Southern Australian floods) to man-made global warming. However increased greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution leads successively to global warming, increased sea temperature, increased evaporation and thence to increased precipitation. Indeed the incidence of floods has greatly increased throughout the world over (...)

Climate Emergency Network, La Niña, Climate Change & Queensland flood disaster - stop burning coal & gas
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Saturday January 15, 2011
Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria in Australia are currently ravaged by floods associated with the latest La Niña climate event. However man-made global warming from greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution has increased sea temperatures and increased the likelihood and severity of such flood disasters. The Climate Emergency Network has issued a statement urging Australia, a world-leading per capita GHG polluter, to stop burning coal and gas. Queensland, Australia, continues to be ravaged by (...)

Huge US natural gas leakage means STOP gas rush, gas boom, gas-fired power plants & global Gasland
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Wednesday January 5, 2011
Because natural gas-fired power plants emit half the CO2 and much lower levels of other pollutants per unit energy produced as coal-fired plants there is a big push for a coal to gas transition. However methane (CH4; the major constituent of natural gas) leaks and is 72 times worse than carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas (GHG) on a 20 year time scale. It can be readily calculated that a 3.7% leakage of CH4 yields that same GHG effect as burning the remaining 96.7% of the CH4 (see (...)

1/1/11 New Year’s Day Message is ONE (1): Unity and Equality for all Humanity on its ONE and only Planet
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday January 2, 2011

The fundamental message on 1/1/11 is indeed 1 (ONE) – 1 man-one-vote, there is only 1 Planet (Spaceship Earth) for Humanity, and equal shares in resources i.e. until we necessarily all cease carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution in 2050 the ratio of my share to your share should be 1. All decent folk subscribe to the essential egalitarianism of the second sentence of the American Declaration of Independence “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, (...)

A detailed resource to stop the Gas Boom, Gas Rush, Gasland obscenity devastating Australia and America

A proposal for 1,000 MW gas-fired power plant to be built 1.5 kilometres from the SE Queensland, Australia Lockyer Valley town of Gatton (population 6,000) has drawn the ire of local residents. The local Lockyer Valley Regional Council (LVRC) has rejected an application from the proponent, Westlink, to build the plant. Westlink is appealing this decision of the council. [1]. The local opposition to the gas-fired power plant has been stated by Chris Hall of Keep Lockyer Rural: “[ (...)

Make Christmas Day a Memorial Day to 7.8 million infants dying from US Alliance hegemony each year
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 24, 2010
At Christmas 2010 we celebrate the birth of Jesus and remember his parents fleeing as refugees from the slaughter of the children by cruel King Herod. 2 millennia after the birth of Jesus there are some 20 million Muslim refugees and a cruel and evil President Obama presides over an American Empire that murders about 1,000 children every day (see “Hey, hey, USA, how many kids did you kill day?

Australian hypocrisy & Mainstream media censorship over 20 million Muslim refugees & Christmas Is horror
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Tuesday December 21, 2010
The Age newspaper of Melbourne is arguably Australia’s most “liberal” newspaper. However, as described below, even after the horrendous Christmas Island (Australia) refugee disaster (50 refugees killed in a wrecked boat) The Age still censors the Awful Truth about 20 million Muslim refugees that anti-Asian Apartheid Australia has helped the US generate. The Age (part of the Australian Fairfax media empire) is certainly more ethical and progressive than the Australian (...)

WikiLeaks saga elicits Censorship & active Genocide Ignoring by Australian Mainstream Media
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 17, 2010
Two major features of WikiLeaks are that (1) the leaked cables simply provide documentary confirmation what sensible people had surmised already about the war criminal, genocidal US Alliance and US state terrorism; and (2) the real scandal that neither WikiLeaks nor Mainstream media (MSM) will report the horrendous carnage of 8 million dead so far in the US War on Terror. Below is documentary evidence of how one of Australia’s leading "liberal" newspapers, The Age (Melbourne), (...)

Pro-US Australian Labor Government threats to WikiLeaks & Julian Assange => decent Oz will Put Labor Last
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 10, 2010
Leading WikiLeaks figure, Julian Assange, is an Australian-born Australian citizen (see Wikipedia: ). So far the WikiLeaks releases re Australia have exposed what US officials thought of PM Rudd (“control freak”); Rudd’s advocacy of US war with China and Australian soldiers for war in Pakistan; successful lobbying of the Labor Government by BHP Billiton to block a $21 billion Chinese investment in mining giant Rio Tinto; revelation of secret Australian Government (...)

Radically changing 2-Party Australian & Western politics: how Greens can force required climate action
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday December 5, 2010
World action on climate change was sabotaged at Copenhagen in 2009 by the US with the help of other world leading per capita polluters, notably Australia. Now we are seeing a re-run of Copenhagen at Cancun. However progressive people in the 2-Major Party Western Lobbyocracies can do something to force requisite strong action on man-made climate change - they can adopt a radical strategy of refusing to support the more progressive but still woefully inadequate major party (Labour in the UK, (...)

Real WikiLeaks Scandal: Mainstream reports secret US documents but not 90 million dead from US occupation
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 3, 2010
1 comment
WikiLeaks has been closed down world-wide and its heroic founder Julian Assange is facing arrest. Yet the WikiLeaks saga obscures an even more appalling reality that Mainstream media, politicians and academics are remorselessly lying about past and present genocidal realities from the Iraqi, Palestinjan, Tamil and Afghan Genocides to the worsening Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust and looming Climate Genocide that is set to kill 10 billion people this century.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently visited Australia in November 2010 but was not asked the key question about 4.6 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan (UN data), specifically “Is the price worth it?” Clinton’s friend and predecessor as Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, had been asked the same question on CBS “60 Minutes” in 1996 (when dead Iraqi children totaled “only" 0.5 million) and (...)

Prince William’s engagement elicits censorship of UK-US Muslim Holocaust, Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Genocide
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Thursday November 18, 2010
The “happy families” engagement of Britain’s Prince William to “commoner” Kate Middleton has generated a lot a feel-good media coverage but has also provided a good example of mainstream media (MSM) censorship in Australia. The Age On-line has declined to publish the shocking, documented details of the devastation of circa 100 million mostly Muslim families subject to the ongoing Occupations and Muslim Holocaust of the Anglo-American War on Terror.

Expose US war crimes by "proceeds of crime" prosecution of former Australian PM Howard over his memoirs

The leaders of the US Alliance have yet to face war crimes trials before the International Criminal Court (ICC) for their involvements in the Iraqi Genocide (4.4 million deaths, 1990-2010) and the Afghan Genocide (4.9 million deaths, 2001-2003). However Australian Guantanamo Bay prisoner David Hicks (who has committed no offences against Australian or International law) is reportedly under investigation by Australian authorities for a possible “proceeds of crimes” prosecution (...)

Republican victories in US mid-term elections will cripple US & World action on man-made climate change
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Monday November 8, 2010

Top climate scientists argue that the world must reach zero carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution by 2050 and that world leading annual per capita GHG pollution countries like the US and Australia must reduce to zero by 2020. The Republican victories in the mid-term Congressional elections (they now have a majority in the House of Representatives) are widely seen as a huge setback for the Cancun Climate Change Summit (Mexico, 2010) and for any effective US cutback on its enormous greenhouse gas (...)

By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday October 31, 2010
Australia (or more precisely Apartheid Australia because of its continuing race-based perceptions, regulations, laws and policies) has an appalling 222 year history of complicity in 22 genocides, from the ongoing Aboriginal Genocide that commenced in 1788 with invasion of Australia to the ongoing Afghan Genocide (2001-2010) (see “Australia’s secret genocide history”: ). Australia has a more recent 60 year history as a cowardly, greedy and racist lackey of a violent, (...)

Australian Federal Labor & Victorian State Labor Government lies and slies hide climate change inaction

Top climate scientists say that we must reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2 ) concentration to about 300 parts per million (ppm) from the current disastrous 392 ppm for a safe planet for all peoples and all species. However world governments are hell-bent on increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution. This disastrous inaction is most apparent in the “brown coal” state of Victoria in climate criminal Australia, a world leader in annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution (...)

Afghan War, Afghan Holocaust & Afghan Genocide 9th Anniversary - 4.9 million dead, 3.2 million refugees
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday October 10, 2010
The Afghan War has now entered its 10th year. It has become the longest US war. As of 7 October 2010, the 9th Anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan, the human cost of the Afghan War has been estimated as about 4.9 million violent deaths or non-violent avoidable deaths from Occupier-imposed deprivation. The ongoing, US Alliance-imposed Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide has now reached the dimensions of the World War 2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from (...)

The horrible reality is that on 10.10.10. 60,000 people will die avoidably from deprivation in our US-dominated World, 1,000 children will die avoidably in the American Empire (see “Hey, hey,, USA, how many kids did you kill today?

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.
