“Fluoride, Asbestos, Uranium, Lead & Tobacco (FAULT)
are multibillion dollar industries that have caused immeasurable
harm to human s who have recently discovered that decades of propaganda
that the products are “safe and effective” are demonstrably false.
Each of these industries has a history of denial of harm, suppression
of evidence, attempts to avoid litigation and compensation of victims.|
In a last ditch attempt to retain public drinking water as a conduit
for the disposal of Fluorides, – industrial waste products, the
myth-mongers are attempting to promulgate the
“Big Lie” that fluorides are nutrients.”

chemical used in manufacturing non-stick coatings.
Yes, you guessed right, it also contains – Fluoride !
“…in one Indian village studied in detail, Bhanakpur near Delhi,
water with between 0.7 and 1.6 ppm of fluoride was enough
to leave 17 per cent of the population suffering from

Fluoride is an emerging contaminant
with unpredictable and unintended
consequences for all of us:
Trillions of dollars have been spent over the last 60 years
promoting artificial water fluoridation around the world.
Yet very few countries adopted the practice -and many of
these have discontinued, with NO increase in tooth decay.
There NEVER has been a case of fluoride-deficiency disease documented!
The harmful implications of poor nutrition in association with fluorides, as well as the damaging effects of lead, (old roofs and solder used on rainwater tanks and old water mains [Australia]), Copper, Cadmium, Aluminium, Arsenic, Beryllium, Chromium, Iron, Mercury, and Nickel have been virtually ignored. – See: Multiple Fluoride Inter-reaction Syndrome.
Over 400 medications increase tooth decay.
Fluoridation is an error from a previous century.
Fluoridation received no pre-market safety evaluation.
Fluoridation is NOT supported by all dentists in Australia.
Calcium fluoride can be found naturally in some waters.
It is almost insoluble and is not easily absorbed,
but it is a still a problem. See ⇒ HERE
The chemicals mostly used to fluoridate drinking water are
toxic waste products derived from the manufacture of
These chemicals do NOT exist in nature.
Global fluoro-chemical sales amount to
more than US$15 billion a year.
Fluorocarbon gases are generally greenhouse gases
with global-warming potentials 100 to 20,000 times

persist in the environment due to the strength of
the carbon–fluorine bond…

~ FLUORIDATION & HUMAN RIGHTS ~
No person, Government Local, State, Federal [or the U.N.] has the right to add chemicals to the drinking water designed to treat human beings (e.g. fluoride, with proposals for lithium and statins) as opposed to treating the water to make it safe or palatable to drink (e.g. chlorine, albeit there is safer way to disinfect water – Chloride dioxide).
[ Ozone V Chlorine ] Treating human beings in this way violates the individual’s right to informed consent to a medical procedure.
[ There needs be no reason to read beyond here! – But please do. ]
A) The evidence IS that fluorides are a hazard to ALL living tissue.
B) Fluoridation i$ promotion by endor$ement.
C) Fluoridation i$ corporate $cience, DDT, asbestos and tobacco $cience.
D) International research now reveals fluorides damage teeth.
E) Not a single biological process in the human body requires fluoride.
F) Fluoridation is a failure to apply the Precautionary Principle.
G) Fluorides bio-accumulate.
H) A multi-million dollar U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH)
-funded study, found no relation between tooth decay and the
amount of fluoride ingested by children.
I) Fluoridation is a violation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EuropeanUnion 2000, and it violates the Nuremberg Code for human experimentation.
J) Water fluoridation is mass medication without prescription. The dosing of public water supply with fluoride is default medication, since you have to deliberately avoid it if you do not want to take it. A person’s daily intake of fluoride simply from drinking an average quantity of fluoridated tap water, fluoridated bottled water, and beverages produced or prepared with fluoridated water and bathing in it can easily exceed the threshold for what your pharmacist would rightly demand a prescription.
K) Most of the industrialized world abandoned or dismissed this pseudo-scientific practice decades ago, along with DDT, mercury fillings (teeth), lead in paint and petrol, thalidomide and asbestos usage.
L) The addition of any drug to the public water supply IS ILLEGAL IN AUSTRALIA beyond the the power of a corporation. — No government has any right, with or without a vote, to decide what drugs you must take or what foods you must, or must not eat.
M) The fluoride in toothpaste (and mouth rinses) is also medication.
N) Fluoridation has its origin NOT in dentistry but in the nuclear industry.
O) CAUTION- ‘Singulair’ (montelukast) may be a bad combination with fluorides (Fluticasone Propionate, toothpaste, or city fluoridated water, especially for children). Fluorides also have serious side effects, including suicidal thoughts and actions, depression, aggressive behavior, hallucinations, sleep walking and tremor. A study published in Environmental Research in 2003 suggested that even low levels could reduce the amount of available testosterone.
P) The fluoride chemical added to water is an unprocessed, industrial
waste-product from the pollution scrubbers of the phosphate fertilizer industry – mostly imported from China – which is NOT fluoridated.
Q) Collagen synthesis has been shown to be impeded by fluoride by the work of B. Uslu, Andola School of Medicine, Eskisehir, Turkey.
R) At least 63 human, animal and plant enzymes are for the most part destroyed or modified by fluorides.
S) Sodium fluoride is an experimental tumorigen [deliberately used to cause cancer in laboratory experiments] and teratogen [deliberately used to cause monstrous abnormalities in laboratory experiments].
T) Swallowing fluoride displaces iodine from your thyroid, as iodine and fluoride are both halogens. Without iodine, you cannot make active thyroid hormones, raising your risk for hypothyroidism.
U) Fluoride is a mitochondrial poison that sabotages your mitochondria’s ability to create cellular energy in the form of ATP, and an enzymatic reactor, meaning it reacts with enzymes in the [your] body.
V) Approximately 1,200 mg (1.2 grams) of sodium fluoride (“just a pinch”) will kill an adult human being.
W) People on low incomes are least able to afford avoidance measures, such as reverse osmosis filters or bottled water. Moreover, those with poor nutrition are more vulnerable to fluoride’s toxic effects.

This post is about Farming, Irrigation,
Fire Management and Banking
and unusual information.
Be very surprised! ! !
Calcium fluoride – CaF2 – occurs naturally, although mostly in relatively small amounts, in some rivers, wells and bore waters – as does arsenic. However this ‘natural’ fluoride can cause health problems. Excessive fluoride concentrations have been reported in the ground-waters of more than 20 countries including in India where 19 states are facing acute fluorosis problems. Large numbers of people in Japan, China, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Mexico and Africa develop dental fluorosis, a biomarker for crippling skeletal fluorosis and other fluoride induced health abnormalities. Skeletal fluorosis is a crippling bone disease caused by ‘natural’ fluoride exposure. Millions of people world-wide are afflicted.
It also affects animals foraging on contaminated feed (from air pollution)
and consuming water from some deep underground sources snd fallout from volcanoes.
Fluorine (F.), a member of the halogen family, is the most electronegative and reactive of all the elements of Periodic Table. Elemental fluorine does not exist in nature but forms inorganic and organic compounds called fluorides representing approximately 0.06–0.09% of the Earth’s crust.
China indicates that coal-burning fluorosis led to 18,138,780 cases of dental fluorosis and 1,594,799 cases of skeletal fluorosis. Coal-burning fluorosis in china is therefore one of the most serious health problems resulting from environmental pollution anywhere in the world. [60 million in India]
Dental fluorosis ⇐MORE IMAGES indicates the deposition of fluoride in the bones – skeletal fluorosis, causing brittleness in later life, – especially hip fractures in humans. — It can occur after teeth formation,
but will not be recorded on the teeth after they are formed.
The severity is relative to the nutritional status of the person or animal:-
… … Vitamin C, Zinc, Magnesium, Boron and Iodine being main considerations.
Dental fluorosis is a biomarker of systemic over-exposure to fluorides.
It occurs during teeth formation where fluorides are in air, water,
food, medications, industrial and agricultural chemicals some
underground waters and volcanic emissions.
However this over-exposure will not be recorded on the teeth
if the exposure occurs AFTER the teeth have been formed.
Philip R. Sutton of the Department of Oral Medicine and Surgery at the University of Melbourne said that DMFs should be counted not per mouth but per hundred erupted teeth.
Otherwise comparisons between rates in fluoridated and control cities
and between different years would not be valid.

……….Moulds, Plants, Insects, Animals, Humans & Corrode Metals (pipes).
Fluorides kill rodents, insects, dogs, termites, fleas, weeds, fungi and humans.
Chronic poisoning, from most toxic agents is rarely diagnosed by physicians in the initial stages.
Most systemic poisons induce vague, subtle symptoms before the appearance of features characteristic of a particular kind of poisoning.
For instance, the radial nerve paralysis or the lead line on the gums which are typical of lead poisoning are preceded by numerous vague symptoms such as lack of appetite, general fatigue, gastric pains, and bowel disorders. Similarly, the bone changes characteristic of chronic cadmium poisoning become apparent only after a prolonged, slowly progressive illness with changes in kidney function…
George L. Waldbott MD.
Chronic exposure to low doses of fluoride cause progressive health problems, larger doses derived from accidents, (terrorists – sarin gas), or incompetence at water treatment works can cause acute toxicity resulting in illness, disability or death. Such incidents are known, but are under-reported, or played down, since authorities have a vested interest in suppressing the information, but there have been many over the years. For example, in Hooper Bay, Alaska, 260 people were poisoned and one man died after drinking water contaminated with 150 ppm of fluoride. The accident was attributed to poor equipment and an unqualified operator. Was this a fluke? No not at all. The US Centre for Disease Control has recorded a number of such incidents where human error or equipment failure resulted in a toxic dose of fluoride. (Brisbane, May 2009.)

EXTRACT:- … Hydrofluosilicic Acid (pronounced Hy-dro-FLEW-oh-suh-lys-ik), also known as hexafluosilicic, siliconfluoric or fluosilicic acid (H2SiFs), is a 20 to 35 % aqueous solution with a formula weight of 144.08. It is a straw-coloured, transparent, fuming, corrosive liquid having a pungent odour and an irritating action on the skin. Solutions of 20 to 35% hydrofluosilic acid exhibit a low pH (1.2), and at concentrations of 1ppm can slightly depress the pH of poorly buffered potable waters. It must be handled with great care because it will cause a “delayed burn” on skin tissue. The average density of 23 % acid is 10.1 lbs./gal. Hydrofluosilicic acid (23%) will freeze at approximately 4 degrees F. or 15.5 degrees C. It takes approximately 46 pounds (4.4gallons) of 23% acid to add 1ppm of fluoride to 1 million gallons of water…
Molecular Mechanisms of Cytotoxicity

When ingested through baited food, the animal suffers a prolonged and horrific death. Herbivores take the longest to die – up to 44 hrs, while carnivores can take up to 21 hrs. Besides being tasteless, odourless, colourless and highly concentrated. 1080 has no antidote. Oregon USA banned the use of 1080. The N.Z. Ministry of Health’s limit for drinking water contamination by 1080, is two parts per BILLION.

SOMAN = Picacolyl-Methyl-Phosphonos-Fluoride – Both these ‘fluorides’ are nerve gases. One drop of either if, absorbed through the skin, will kill an adult human, in seconds.
The nerve-gas Soman (GD) is chemically similar to Sarin (GB), and they both contain fluorine. They are called “nerve” agents because they directly attack and destroy the nervous system. According to an EPA report once you remove the fluorine from Sarin, all that remains is a non-toxic acid. In other words, fluorine–the same fluorine that is in our drinking water–is what gives sarin its deadly “kick”.
PFIB = Perfluoroisobutylene is produced as a main by-product in large quantities by the fluoropolymer industry.
PFIB is about 10 times as toxic as phosgene.
A highly toxic compound, even a brief inhalation of PFIB can result in acute lung injury, pulmonary edema and even death.
PROZAC = Fluoxetene Hydochloride is an anti-depressant.
Prozac affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms, also Lovan, Paxil & Luvox.

The attached maps (USA) on this website show the distribution of Trifluralin in the groundwater, and many other chemicals. http://pubs.usgs.gov/wri/wri014255/results/detect.htm
Trifluralin is a commonly used pre-emergence herbicide. With about 14 million pounds used in the United States in 2001, it is one of the most widely used herbicides. Trifluralin is generally applied to the soil to provide control of a variety of annual grass and broadleaf weed species. It inhibits root development by interrupting mitosis, and thus can control weeds as they germinate.
Trifluralin is used on Australian wheat.

All fluoride compounds interfere with thyroid hormones and are factors in Hashimoto’s Disease. (Between 6% – 10% of Australians are affected by hypothyroidism which results in death after 10 to 15 years without medication.)
The distortion of protein structure causes the immune proteins to fail to recognise body proteins, and so instigate an attack on them, which is Autoimmune Disease. Autoimmune Diseases constitute a body of disease processes troubling many thousands of people:
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus Erythematosus, Asthma and Systemic Sclerosis are examples. Fluoride causes thyroid antibodies to be produced, which cause Thyroiditis resulting in the common hypothyroid disease, Hashimoto’s Disease and the hyperthyroidism of Graves’ Disease.

Years of drinking sodas NEW→ [soft drinks containing bromides (aviation fuel)] and brominated vegetable oils solidifies body fat resulting in ‘morbidobesity’ plus risk of “bromide intoxication – ‘brain fog’, schizophrenia, delirium, and hallucinations …
CASE REPORT: The patient presented with headache, fatigue, ataxia, and memory loss which progressed over 30 days. He consumed 2 to 4 L of cola containing brominated vegetable oil on a daily basis before presenting with these symptoms. His significantly elevated serum chloride, as measured by ion specific methods, and negative anion gaps were overlooked during a prior hospitalization and emergency department visits. A focal neurologic finding of right eyelid ptosis led to an extensive evaluation for a central nervous system lesion. The patient continued to deteriorate, until he was no longer able to walk. A diagnosis of severe bromism was eventually made and his serum bromide was confirmed at 3180 mg/L (39.8 mmol/L). Despite saline loading the patient failed to improve but subsequent hemodialysis dramatically cleared his clinical condition, and reduced his serum bromide levels. The unilateral eyelid ptosis, a rarely reported finding in bromism, also resolved with hemodialysis. Potassium Bromate is a dough conditioner found in commercial bakery products and some flours.

In view of the above it can be presumed that obesity would be augmented in a fluoride environment. Australia is the most fluoridated country in the world. Obesity and related problems are rife in Australia – everyone points the finger at poor diet, but few researchers suspect fluoride and bromide contamination of our diet as part of the complication.

FLUORIDE / IODINE – IN A NUCLEAR DISASTER –
❝ … Many people are relatively deficient in iodine, and because of this they will readily absorb iodine from the environment. Your body is unable to recognize the difference between regular iodine and radioactive iodine. It will absorb them equally well. So if you are deficient in iodine and a radioactive cloud passes by, [Japanese nuclear crisis] your body will tend to suck that radioactive iodine (Iodine-131 also called radioiodine) into your thyroid gland to fill up its iodine stores.
In an ideal situation you will have been taking adequate amounts of iodine from safe sources which will not only protect you from radioactive iodine but from environmental toxins that can poison your thyroid gland like Fluoride, Bromine and Chlorine.
If you have not been taking iodine and a radioactive cloud comes near your area then it would make sense to take large doses of prophylactic iodine to prevent your thyroid gland from absorbing the radioactive iodine. However it is important to understand that the large dose of [potassium iodide] only protects your thyroid for one to three days, no longer and it does absolutely nothing to protect you by detoxifying the radiation… ❞

When collagen breaks down, tissues simply lose their substance, their framework.
Fluoride dissolves the body’s glue simply by preventing new collagen from being formed.
John Yiamouyiannis, PhD., gives a masterful explanation of this in his work:
‘Fluoride The Ageing Factor’.
1) … Not only is the collagen incorrectly formed, it is wrongly mineralized.
Some collagen, like bones and teeth, should be mineralized in order to give it hardness.
2) Other collagen structures, like ligaments, tendons and muscles, should not be mineralized, in order to keep them flexible and resilient.
3) Fluoride mineralizes the tendons, and muscles and ligaments, making them crackly and painful and inflexible.
4) At the same time fluoride interferes with mineralization of bones and teeth, causing osteoporosis and a premature health decline …
FLUORIDE PREMATURELY AGES THE BODY,
Mainly By The Distortion Of Enzyme Shapes:
When enzymes get twisted out of shape, they can’t do their jobs. This results in collagen breakdown, eczema, tissue damage, skin wrinkling, genetic damage, and immune suppression. Practically any disease you can name may then be caused.
All systems of the body are dependent upon enzymes. When fluoride changes the enzymes, this can damage: immune system, digestive system, respiratory system, blood circulation, kidney function, liver function, brain function and thyroid function. These distorted enzymes are proteins, but now they have become foreign protein, which we know is the exact cause of autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, arthritis, asthma, and arteriosclerosis. Fluoride also accumulates in the organelles of animal cells and shuts down enzyme activity. . . Fluoride as a factor in cataracts has been established by statistical studies of Dr. Ionel F. Rapaport and confirmed by the research of Dr. Burgstahler.

WE ALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT

Fluoridation involves the dumping of tones of industrial toxic waste into the drinking water supply systems, and into our/your blood stream, bones and brain.-
Shanghai Mintchen Development Co. Ltd.
Phosphate fertilizer plants produce large quantities of toxic waste (silicofluorides, “SiFs” – fluosilicic acid or hexafluorosilicic acid, H2SiF6, and sodium fluosilicate or silicofluoride, Na2SiF6), which are recovered and require neutralization and disposal. Normally it would cost several thousand dollars per truckload to do this. But it has been contrived for these unrefined products, with their heavy metal contaminants, to be sold for injection into the water supplies of compliant cities and governments, under the guise of reducing dental decay. Industry thus benefits from not having to pay for it’s disposal, and at the same time makes a tidy profit on the sale of this waste. (ESTIMATED 2,000% PROFIT.) Water Fluoridation is often used to deliberately mask the damage caused by fluoride air pollution.

Na2SiF6 is a chemical compound formed by two atoms of Sodium,

This section applies to all fluoridation plants [Queensland]. It provides information on the quality and storage of fluoridation agents:
4.1. Quality of fluoridation chemicals Performance criteria Minimum standards
• The water supplier must, on the receipt of each batch of fluoridation chemical, obtain a copy of the batch analysis certificate from the manufacturer, importer or supplier
• If a batch analysis certificate is unable to be obtained, the water supplier must arrange for a sample of the fluoridation chemical to be analysed, at a laboratory accredited by NATA for the analysis, to determine the level of any impurities.
• A daily quality control sample should be analysed by the fluoridation plant operator along with the mandatory daily samples of fluoridated water. This sample should be analysed using the same prescribed analysis as the routine samples.
• A weekly quality control sample should be analysed by the reticulation system manager along with the analysis of the recommended weekly samples of fluoridated water. This sample should be analysed using the same prescribed analysis as the routine samples.
• On 1 day each month the fluoridation plant operator must split a daily sample into 2 parts and analyse 1 part using a prescribed analysis. The other part must be forwarded to a laboratory that is NATA accredited for fluoride analysis, and the results of analysis obtained by the water supplier …
‘The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme’ (NICNAS) and The ‘Office of Chemical Safety and Environmental’ are invalid Government agencies unless fluoride in its many forms, and its implications for human health and the environment are recognized and included with other chemicals.

poisoning, nor do they even know to look for it, or diagnose it. Fluorides have
numerous simultaneous inter-reactions with a range of enzymes,
nutrients, nutritional deficiencies other poisonous substances,
infections, and radiotherapy, so as to justify the term-
‘Multiple Fluoride Inter-reaction Syndrome’.

$4 BILLION CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST ISRAEL’S WATER SUPPLIER
CREDIT TO ‘FLUORIDE ACTION NETWORK’ FOR THIS ARTICLE
Just 6 months ago an appeal to the Israeli supreme court to ban fluoridation was filed, and now a new “bomb” in the fight against fluoridation, falling on the desk of Israels’ water supplier – Mekorot.
A class action has been filed today against “Mekorot” by “ Dan Ashkenazi and associates“ law firm on behalf of Yaacov Gurman – head of the NPO “Izun hozer”.
The $4 billion NIS class action ($500 NIS for each Israeli citizen), accuses “Mekorot” of providing the Israeli citizens with false information regarding their drinking water content and causing environmental damage for the past 10 years.
The main claim of the appeal is that while the ministry of health mandates “Mekorot” to add fluoride to Israels’ water supply, “Mekorot” which is responsible for the drinking water quality, has instead added many industrial chemical waste, which among other pollutants included fluoride, and has kept this inconvenient fact from public knowledge and scrutiny.
The second accusation is that while “Mekorot” claims to monitor the quality of drinking water, in the case of fluoridation “Mekorot” itself had no accurate knowledge of the precise chemical content of “fluoride” it added to the drinking water.
Mr. Yaacov Gurman, who has filed the lawsuit says that the purpose of the class action is to force “Mekorot” to openly publish the precise content of the “hydrofluorosilicic acid” which is adds as “fluoride “ to Israels’ drinking water.
To the best of our knowledge this is the first class action of its kind in the world , and the
and the fact that it has been filed only 5 months after the appeal to the supreme court, (an appeal to which the Ministry of Health continuosly fails to respond ), serves to show the intensity of the civil fight in Israel against water fluoridation.
As well, it is no coincidence that the lawsuit has been filed only days after the new health minister Yael German has signed the new water regulations that state that fluoridation will stay in effect for next year.
The continuation of fluoridation for one more year will cause environmental as well as health damage to millions of Israelis and we, together with “Izun Hozer” have made it clear to the new health minister that we will not “go to sleep” and instead will continue the civil battle for public health against the barbarous act of fluoridation.
Here is the announcement published by Yaacov Gurman regarding the lawsuit:
“ Good afternoon,
This morning I have filed a class action in the name of all of the citizens of Israel, for 4 billion NIS against “Mekorot”, for misleading the public in its official announcements and for hiding information regarding the materials that it inserts to the drinking water under “fluoridation”. The lawsuit was filed by “Dan Ashkenazi and Associates” who also filed the recent appeal to the Supreme Court regarding banning fluoridation.
On Thursday 11/4/13 we were told that fluoridation will continue for at least one more year. The purpose of the class action is to force “Mekorot” to openly and clearly disclose to the public the precise content of the materials added to the water, without misleading or hiding information.
This past weekend the headlines in the newspapers stated: “The health minister decided to end water fluoridation” but the fact is that most of the people in Israel will continue to drink fluoridated water this year, contaminated with dangerous, disease causing industrial residues.
That is why we hope that the Supreme Court will not be fooled by the headlines and will order an immediate stop to fluoridation. We at “Izun Hozer” are doing everything within our means to inform the public and stop this continual malpractice, which has been going on for more than a decade.
For all those years, “Mekorot” was aware of adding to the water “hydrofluorosilicic acid”, coming from the phosphate and fertilizer industry, yet has kept this fact hidden from the public. I am thus forced to file this class action, as it is the only way to force “Mekorot”, the main water supplier in Israel, to correct its wrong doing, and report accurately what is in our drinking water.
I personally have drank tap water during these past ten years, and have even convinced my 4 months pregnant wife that tap water were safe and that there was nothing to worry about. I believed, (until beginning to study the subject ) that the quality of the drinking water in Israel was among the highest in the world.
I do not want my children to ask me in twenty years – “ Dad, how could you possibly have let this thing happen??” and I will be forced to answer that “ I didn’t know, it is not me, it’s the state, it’s “Mekorot”, it’s the water suppliers, sorry….”
There IS something very wrong going on, and it is planned to go for at least one more year. I will not step aside and be quiet for one more year with the information and understanding that I have.
Water fluoridation is a clear and immediate danger, and “Mekorot” is not doing what it must do to protect the public from it.
Wishing you continual health,

It has an atmospheric residence time ranging from 500
to several thousand years according to the
intergovernmental panel on climate change.
SF6 is the most potent greenhouse gas that it has evaluated, with a ‘g’ of 22,800 times that of CO2 when compared over a 100-year period. Measurements of SF6 show that its global average mixing ratio has increased by about 0.2ppt [Parts per trillion] per year to over 7 ppt.
Sulfur hexafluoride is also extremely long-lived. It is inert in the troposphere and stratosphere and has an estimated atmospheric lifetime of 800–3200 years. (ozone depletion.) Atmospheric lifetime and GWP relative to CO2 at different time.
NASA Study Shows That Common Coolants Contribute
to Ozone Depletion:
By Staff Writers – Norwich, UK (SPX) 16 March 2014:
Scientists at the University of East Anglia have identified four new man-made gases in the atmosphere–all of which are contributing to the destruction of the ozone layer. [These are fluoride gases.]
New research published today in the journal Nature Geoscience reveals that more than 74,000 tonnes of three new chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and one new hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) have been released into the atmosphere.
[~These are fluoride gases.~]
Scientists made the discovery by comparing today’s air samples with air trapped in polar firn snow – which provides a century-old natural archive of the atmosphere. They also looked at air collected between 1978 and 2012 in unpolluted Tasmania. Measurements show that all four new gases have been released into the atmosphere recently – and that two are significantly accumulating. Emission increases of this scale have not been seen for any other CFCs since controls were introduced during the 1990s. But they are nowhere near peak CFC emissions of the 1980s which reached around a million tonnes a year. Lead researcher Dr Johannes Laube from UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences said: “Our research has shown four gases that were not around in the atmosphere at all until the 1960s which suggests they are man-made.”
“CFCs are the main cause of the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica. Laws to reduce and phase out CFCs came into force in 1989, followed by a total ban in 2010. This has resulted in successfully reducing the production of many of these compounds on a global scale. However, legislation loopholes still allow some usage for exempted purposes.
“The identification of these four NEW gases is very worrying as they will contribute to the destruction of the ozone layer. We don’t know where the new gases are being emitted from and this should be investigated. Possible sources include feedstock chemicals for insecticide production and solvents for cleaning electronic components.
“What’s more, the three CFCs are being destroyed very slowly in the atmosphere – so even if emissions were to stop immediately, they will still be around for many decades to come,” he added.
This research has been funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS), the European Union, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) (Australia).
‘Newly detected ozone depleting substances in the atmosphere’ is published in the journal Nature Geoscience on Sunday, 9 March 2014.

18 December 2018
EXTRACT: Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) are potent greenhouse gases (GHGs), which can be collectively described as Kyoto Protocol synthetic GHGs (KP-SGGs). HFCs are used extensively in Australia, largely in air conditioning and refrigeration, initially as ‘ozone-friendly’ replacements for chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). Minor uses of HFCs in Australia are as aerosol propellants, including metered dose inhalers (MDIs), as foam blowing agents and in fire extinguishers. PFCs are a by-product of the production of aluminium in Australia and overseas and, in addition, are used overseas in the electronics industry during the manufacture of integrated circuits and plasma screens. Refrigeration represents a very minor use of PFCs in Australia and overseas. Sulfur hexafluoride is used extensively in the electricity distribution industry, both in Australia and overseas, for dielectric insulation and current interruption in circuit breakers, switchgear, and other electrical equipment, and as a cover gas in metal production, for example magnesium. There does not appear to be any significant use of nitrogen trifluoride in Australia, which is used internationally in the semi-conductor production industry, initially as a replacement for PFCs.
Sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2) and trifluoromethyl sulfurpentafluoride (CF3SF5) are potent synthetic greenhouse gases that ARE NOT PART OF THE KYOTO PROTOCOL SUITE of SGGs (KP-SGGs). [ Our emphasis ] Sulfuryl fluoride use in Australia is growing rapidly, as a replacement for phosphine (PH3) and possibly methyl bromide (CH3Br), in grain fumigation. [*] It is unlikely that trifluoromethyl sulfurpentafluoride is used in Australia. Its occurrence in the atmosphere is largely as a by-product of the production of perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS: CF3(CF2)7SO3H), which has never been manufactured in Australia, but is a key ingredient in fabric stain repellants (e.g. 3M’s Scotchguard) … Full text ⇒ HERE

Abstract: Sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2) is used primarily as a fumigant in replacement of methyl bromide, but it has the potential to contribute significantly to the global warming. This article introduces SO2F2 in the physicochemical properties, the current uses in agriculture and industry, the toxicological data, and the environmental implications on the basis of its environmental properties. The health hazards of SO2F2 and its probable decomposition products were also evaluated based on their occupational exposure limits and possible exposure sources. The resident and occupational exposure assessment was further discussed to understand seriousness of risk caused by SO2F2 and its decomposition products…
EXTRACT: Inorganic fluorides are used in Canada and emitted into the Canadian environment both from anthropogenic (estimated releases of approximately 23 500 tonnes/year) and natural sources (amounts released are not known). The main anthropogenic sources of inorganic fluorides in Canada include phosphate fertilizer production, chemical production, and aluminum smelting. Gaseous inorganic fluorides (e.g., hydrogen fluoride and sulphur hexafluoride) are primarily released into the atmosphere, whereas particulate compounds (e.g., sodium fluoride and calcium fluoride) are released into the aquatic and terrestrial environments.

HONEYWELL has hit back at a
German motoring magazine article describing its new
HFO-1234yf as a ” Killer Refrigerant.”
While car manufacturers around the world look set to standardise on 1234yf as the replacement for R134a in vehicle air conditioning systems, environmental groups and others in Germany continue to raise concerns over its flammability and the potential release of highly toxic hydrogen fluoride in the case of a fire.
Under the headline “The Killer Refrigerant”, influential German motoring magazine ‘Auto Bild’ describes HFO-1234yf as “Environmentally friendly, but dangerous”.
? …1234yf is yet another transitional refrigerant, 350 times less harmful than 134a, but not benign. CO2 or water as refrigerants are ideal as they are benign, and very cheap, it is just that they require expensive compressors (titanium, turbos, etc.). They are also said to be more efficient overall (they require higher compression but give even more cooling to more than make up for the extra compression energy used)

OXYGEN DEPLETION – AIRCRAFT
The environmental impact of aviation occurs because aircraft engines emit heat, noise, particulates, and gases which contribute to climate change and global dimming. Airplanes emit particles and gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, lead, and black carbon which interact among themselves and with the atmosphere. Despite emission reductions from automobiles and more fuel-efficient and less polluting turbofan and turboprop engines, the rapid growth of air travel in recent years contributes to an increase in total pollution. International aviation emissions have escaped international regulation.
Apart from problems of lead emissions, aircraft consume huge quantities of oxygen which may be of some concern!

Sun Spots are intense ‘bubbles’- storms of magnetic energy, (or is that plasma) larger than our Earth – (see image at the top of this post). These solar storms come in eleven-year cycles (average) and are recoded in sea coral, ice cores and tree growth rings. These organic records show many climate changes long before our industrial age… The solar cycle length may also be responsible for variation in temperature as well as the number of sunspots, which also can vary in size and number. The affects of pollution by humans and volcanoes will not be immediate and may be delayed for months or years, making it difficult to assign blame… With so much disagreement amongst the ‘experts’ we can only speculate. — Co2 is not evenly distributed in the Earth’s atmosphere, and therefor hard to ascertain percentages up or down. The ‘experts’ disagree amongst themselves, and seem to ignore other events in our solar system…

— GLOBAL COOLING ? —
Millions of tones of fluorides, dusts and carbon dioxide are emitted from active volcanoes. The dust emissions circulating in the upper atmosphere reflect heat back into outer space, with a delay time of a few years, so we can expect more rain, earth cooling, and more earthquakes in the near future – not global warming. One year’s volcanic activity of one Indonesian volcano can discharge more carbon into the atmosphere, than we humans have throughout our history.

— OIL, COAL AND URANIUM —
Burning coal, and oil results in pollution of the planet with mercury and
a list of other chemical contaminants to stress your dictionary and the alphabet.
Nuclear power is uneconomic if the full cost of mining and the long-term management of waste and the decommissioning of power stations are included, and is therefor NOT carbon neutral. Like fluoridation nuclear power is based on deceit and lies. Nuclear power plants are only possible due to funding of billions of government dollars. War, terrorists, earthquakes, meteors, and management failures, and waste storage for thousands of years makes nuclear power look like grand madness, which cannot be disguises by the most sophisticated scientific language.
Nuclear power primary existence was to supply plutonium for bomb manufacture –
not cheap electricity.
In a ‘carbon economy’ the overall nuclear cycle – from mining, transporting and processing uranium ore, to disposing and sevicing of radioactive waste for thousands of years and decommissioning power plants – generates CO2. which could be the same as probably more than from a gas-fired power stations, or a ‘clean coal’ power station. [Solar and wind options are further down this page.]
Fast-breeder reactors would result in a plutonium economy with dangerous plutonium toxicity, nuclear weapons implications and global contamination also for thousands of years. – (CO2 is not poisonous in fact it is a plant food.)
THE SECRET SHAM OF ‘PEAK OIL’
May be this is why Vladimir Putin is not popular in the ‘West’ .
Oil is NOT a fossil fuel. This is a theory put forth by 18th century scientists.
Within 50 years, Germany and France’s scientists had attacked the theory of petroleum’s biological roots. In fact, oil is abiotic, not the product of long decayed biological matter. And oil, for better or for worse, is NOT a non-renewable resource. It, like coal, and natural gas, replenishes from sources within the mantle of earth.
This is the real and true science of oil.
Read all about it below. ⇓
OIL IS NOT A FOSSIL FUEL ⇐⇒ -It is renewable- ⇐⇒ Thomas Gold
The British scientist, Sir Fred Hoyle FRS said – “The suggestion that petroleum might have arisen from some transformation of squashed fish or biological detritus is surely the silliest notion to have been entertained by substantial numbers of persons over an extended period of time.”… ‘Big oil’ has a vested interest in pushing the idea that oil is scarce, hard to find, and thus costly to produce—all of which, of course, means increased revenues and profits.
NUCLEAR POWER IS NOT CLEAN OR GREEN – Even if coal, and oil, burning do not influence climate change, these activities need to be reduced and finally stopped due to the pollution they cause. Coal burning can be cleaned up using ‘Scrubbers’. Steel manufacturing needs high quality ‘coking coal’, also known as metallurgical coal. It is used exclusively as an essential ingredient for steel production. Modern steel plants, include extensive gas treatment and capture to significantly reduce emissions.
The steel that is produced is used in our daily lives in cars, kettles and cookers as well as in the manufacture of wind turbines and nuclear power stations, our alternatives to coal-powered energy!
Clean thermonuclear alternatives may need to be pursued. [Helium3 ?]

The Perils of Nuclear Power ?
Until recently, Japan was one of the world leaders in nuclear power, so such a shift is very significant, both culturally and economically. It has been revealed the central government did not let on to the public how damaging some of the possible scenarios may have been. About 10,000 spent fuel rods were being stored in pools of water near the damaged Fukushima reactor, and the government officials didn’t know if those fuel rods were in danger of releasing additional large amounts of radiation.
It took them a long time to check to see if the water levels in the pools were safe or unsafe, “We barely avoided the worst case scenario, though the public didn’t know it at the time,” Mr. Funabashi [said].

Japan Pulls the Plug on Nuclear Power
16 May 2014: – The source of the radioactive leak at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was finally identified by the facility’s operator, TEPCO, to be in the primary containment vessel of reactor 3, authorities reported. In January, the crew of the plant first noticed that water was leaking through to the drain on the first level of the building housing the reactor. Engineers probed the space with a camera and found the water leakage to be near a pipe joint that connects directly to the containment vessel.

LEAKING NUCLEAR WASTE CONTAMINATING GROUND WATER
Credit Natural News
“Hanford Determines Double-Shell Tank Leaked Waste From Inner Tank.”
This headline on a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) press release from last October is bigger news than it first appeared. For the first time, the massive storage tanks built to hold some of the most radioactive nuclear waste in the world were found to be slowly leaking.
The United States campaign to build a giant arsenal of nuclear weapons during the Cold War created an environmental disaster at Hanford Site in Washington State. Highly radioactive sludge being leaked threatens to contaminate the region’s water supply.
In February, federal and state officials said six giant underground tanks holding a toxic brew of highly radioactive wastes are leaking at the 570-square-mile Hanford Reservation. The location of this nuclear waste site is right on the Columbia River in South Central Washington State. Dirtiest nuclear waste stored at the Hanford Site
Hanford is known as the dirtiest reactor site in the world.
It has 1,000 inactive dumps, 200 square miles of contaminated ground water, and 50,000 drums of plutonium wastes in temporary storage. For nearly 40 years, Hanford’s eight production reactors made plutonium for hydrogen bombs for the US Military. During that process, contractors dumped plutonium, cesium, technetium, tritium, strontium and other isotopes into the air, soil, and ground water. More astonishingly, they even dumped nuclear waste directly into the Columbia River – the drinking water source for downstream cities.
Hanford has 54 million gallons of the high-level waste liquids and sludge contained in 177 aged and decrepit storage tanks. Back in the 1980s, the DOE disclosed that up to 69 of the million-gallon tanks may be leaking. February’s disclosure makes 75; six are confirmed leaking.
The Human Fallout
In 1990, a DOE analysis of radiation exposures downwind from Hanford found that infants and children were heavily contaminated because of drinking contaminated milk. The Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction Project found that 13,500 people may have received doses over 33 rads of iodine-131 and that infants and children closest to Hanford could have consumed between 650 and 3,000 rads. A single rad can cause thyroid cancer and other illnesses.
Cancers, miscarriages and other health problems suffered by people in the area were linked to the deliberate spewing of 5,500 curies of radioactive iodine-131 to the atmosphere in a Dec. 3, 1949, experiment called “green run,” and on the offhand dispersal of 340,000 curies in 1945 alone.
Hanford’s latest six leaks are just a microcosm of the radiation leaked from the site which continues to leak deadly nuclear waste to the Columbia River resulting in a plague of cancer and disease that seems to have no end. What is Washington State doing about this? Washington Governor Jay Inslee and the U.S. Department of Energy are each looking for answers from a private company managing the most dangerous radioactive waste at the Hanford Site, where plutonium was made for the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
Inslee has asked his top Hanford adviser to begin inquiries into the situation with the leaking double-shell tank, a spokesperson for his office said.
Inslee said, “We’re going to be reviewing this. We know how diligent I want this state to be of having a zero tolerance policy … on leaking radioactivity. It is the right policy. It is demanding, but it is legally enforceable and we’re going to continue to insist on that policy.”
Inslee added: “We are going to be insistent that our federal partners be open and transparent with us to the extent humanly possible, that we are and will be reviewing what happened in this particular circumstance.”

GLOBAL COOLING – ICE AGES
Although this book is more concerned with global cooling, it covers many aspects of climate change. We therefore commend it to anyone looking for scientific info on a broad scale, – both in time and space.
?…Even if there is a slight global warming at present, it would be difficult to prove that this is caused by industrial atmospheric pollution.
Global climate is never stable in any case, and short-term oscillations of a few centigrade degrees are probably a perfectly normal feature of our environment. Other atmospheric changes have seriously been considered as factors in the waxing and waning of the world’s ice cover. The ozone composition of the upper atmosphere is thought to be affected by solar flares and also by industrial pollution, [fluorides] but it is not certain how much global cooling and warming can be accounted for by changes in the ozone layer. Volcanic eruption may also affect the climate, especially if there are many large-scale eruptions over a short space of time which add volcanic dust [and fluorides] to the atmosphere. However, it is now thought that the effects of volcanic eruptions are short-lived, and it has been demonstrated that volcanic dust seldom remains in suspension in the atmosphere for more than seven years after an eruption… ?
OTHER ISSUES DEALT WITH IN THIS BOOK INCLUDE:
— INTERNAL —
1) Variations in the Earth’s core – alterations in the output of heat from
radioactive materials [natural] inside the Earth.
2) Alterations in the direction and strength of the convection currents
which may exist within the Earth’s mantle. – geothermal heat flux.
3) Frequency of reversals of the Earth’s magnetic fields.
(Over 80 in the last 2,000 million years.)
— SOLAR —
4) Our sun is a slightly variable star.
Its energy is output is not a constant. – Opic.
5) There may be a ‘flickering’- on a timescale of the order of 250-300 million years.
6) Many periodicities have been recognized or assumed, ranging from millions of years? to less than a year.
7) Solar emission cycles with periods of between 200,00 and 400,000 years have received particular attention.
8) Sunspot cycles. [11 year average]
9) Precession of the equinoxes: 21,000 – 25,000 years
10) The obliquity of the Earth’s orbit: c. 41,000 years
11) The eccentricity of the Earth’s orbit: 90,000 – 100,000 years
— GALACTIC —
12) The Solar System moves up and down through the galactic plane.
13) The effects of interstellar dust veils.
14) Solar winds from other stars.
15) Changes in spin-rate of the Earth.
? Each of these factors might lead independently to small coolings and warmings of the global climate, but substantial climatic changes such as those involved in the initiation of an ice age can probably not occur until three factors are ‘favourable’ phased at the same time…?

SOME NEW CLEANER OPTIONS:
Hydrothermal vents exist at the ocean floor, 2100m (7000ft)
below the surface. They exist in many oceans around the
world, especially in the Pacific and Atlantic.
– Helium-3 –
China, India and Russia are also space nations. China is planning to mine Helium-3 on the moon, where it is plentiful, for a future fusion economy. Fusion power (not radioactive) based on Helium-3 will give us all clean energy for thousands of years.
– Thorium Reactors –
Thorium reactors COULD be a safer alternative than uranium, but this would not suit the military – (no bomb material) or the uranium industry, as it would give more nations access, to power, as thorium is more ubiquitous than uranium. Both India and China are researching this now. (Australia has the largest known deposits of Thorium in the world.)

– Wind –
Japanese breakthrough will make wind power cheaper than nuclear power.
A surprising aerodynamic innovation in wind turbine design called the ‘wind lens’ could triple the output of a typical wind turbine, making it less costly than nuclear power.
NOTE: Some major wind projects like the proposed
TWE Carbon Valley project in Wyoming are already pricing in significantly lower than coal power – $80 per MWh for wind versus $90 per MWh for coal – and that is without government subsidies using today’s wind turbine technology.
DC wind turbines offer greater efficiency.
— NEW SOLAR CELLS + D C Wind Turbines —
The new efficient solar cells that respond to none visible light, (still work on cloudy days), optical double sided cells, DC wind turbines that can operate at any wind speed and do not require a gearbox. Peaking power plants and base load hydro-power from stored water pumped up behind dams by wind turbines, at off peak times, offer some cleaner options until we progress further with cold or hot fusion (helium 3), conversion of water into hydrogen, or the harnessing neutrinos, or whatever scientists discover in the future…
Japan’s recent tragic nuclear experience may stimulate some new developments worldwide. However industrial corruption, electronic sabotage and debt banking in the USA will hinder these technical developments there and, its support for Israel with its endless Middle East wars will bleed the USA white, financially, thus reducing its research and development potential.
The myth of global warming, driven by massive well-financed media-protected propaganda, has persuaded many politicians and centers of learning that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a problem. But, as explained above, however –
The Theory of CO2 and Global Warming
May Be Seriously Flawed – Fluoride Pollution, Aircraft,
And External Cosmic Forces Are More Likely Explanations
“Global Dimming” … inhibition of photosynthesis and agricultural production.
Maybe that is why 31,487 scientists, including 9,029 with PhDs,
reject man-made global warming by carbon dioxide.

The Australian “Carbon Tax”
will WAS TO be paid in-part to the
United Nations World Government not by choice, – but by law.
In February 2011 Paul Murray from the ‘West Australian’ reported that:
‘Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s [proposed] new tax will be used to allow Australia to meet its share of a $100 billion-a-year United Nations fund to transfer wealth from rich countries to help undeveloped nations adapt to global warming. The Gillard Government is party to a UN agreement which Climate Change Minister Greg Combet entered into in December at a meeting in Cancun, Mexico, under which about 10 per cent of carbon taxes in developed nations will go into a Green Climate Fund.
? … They [Australians] do not want a carbon tax, not because they do not care about the environment but because they know that it will do nothing for the environment. They know that it will not lower global temperatures one jot or tittle. We absolutely know that and no-one has ever disputed it. They also know that billions of their dollars are going to be sent offshore to unaccountable regimes or organisations. You are going to see it go to an international United Nations fund and you are also going to have to buy permits from nations which have a less than rigorous reputation for financial transparency and honesty. – These are things that concern us all.

‘MARINE SNOW’ – PART OF NATURES CARBON SEQUESTRATION –
…Because of the relatively long residence time of the ocean’s thermohaline circulation, carbon transported as marine snow into the deep ocean by the biological pump can remain out of contact with the atmosphere for more than 1000 years. That is, when the marine snow is finally decomposed to inorganic nutrients and dissolved carbon dioxide, these are effectively isolated from the surface ocean for relatively long time-scales related to oceancirculation. Consequently, enhancing the quantity of marine snow that reaches the deep ocean is the basis of several geoengineering schemes to enhance carbon sequestration by the ocean. Ocean nourishment and iron fertilisation seek to boost the production of organic material in the surface ocean, with a concomitant rise in marine snow reaching the deep ocean. As of yet, these efforts have not produced a sustainable fertilization that effectively transports carbon out of the system…
… The small percentage of material not consumed in shallower waters becomes incorporated into the muddy “ooze” blanketing the ocean floor, where it is further decomposed through biological activity. About three-quarters of the deep ocean floor is covered in this thick, smooth ooze. The ooze collects as much as six meters (20 feet) every million years. It is usually 289 meters (948 feet) thick, – but can be up to nearly 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) thick…

Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met. Office
report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it:
The figures reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012
there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures
This means that the ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about
the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996
PUBLISHED: 21:42 GMT, 13 October 2012 |
UPDATED: 13:59 GMT, 16 October 2012
The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago,
according to new data released last week.
The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.
This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996.
Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
Try not to get too hot under the collar about global warming!
