Hello Houston, We Have a Problem
I’m afraid I have some really bad news today. It appears, from satellite images, that the Ocean Conveyor Belt, aka the North Atlantic Drift, aka the Gulf Stream, aka the Thermohaline Circulation stopped approximately a month ago. Instead of travelling all the way north to the west coast of Britain, it now seems to break up into whirl pools around North Carolina. This is believed to be the explanation (owing to a change in equatorial trade winds and currents) for the massive floods in China, India and Pakistan and (owing to jet stream effects) the heat wave and draught in Soviet Union. And oh yes, winter has already started in the Alps. This is consistent with predictions for world weather patterns if the Conveyor Belt doesn’t start up again. A new Ice Age in northern Europe developing over the next five years. See http://europebusines.blogspot.com/2010/08/special-post-life-on-this-earth-just.html
Climate scientists have warned this might happen – gradually – as a result of increasing global temperatures. This was before the BP oil spill and the decision to dump a million gallons of Corexit into the Gulf of Mexico to disperse it. I don’t think any of us are naïve enough the billions of gallons of oil BP spilled in the Gulf of Mexico simply evaporated. What happened is that much of it combined with the Corexit to form a thick emulsion (sludge) that dropped to the seabed and which is gradually working its way up the East Coast of the US.
And it appears that it’s having a major effect on ocean currents (what drives the Conveyor Belt is a tendency for warmer, saltier water to rise and colder less saline water to sink). This is believed to be the explanation for the sudden halt in the Conveyor Belt.
I guess we all need to prepare for a big increase in extreme weather events. As well as a big drop in world food production. Scary stuff.

Chris and I discuss how I was first targeted, following my decision to support the occupation (of an abandoned school) that led to the formation of Seattle’s first African American Heritage Museum – as an alternative to the crack cocaine epidemic among the city’s African American teenagers. We also talk about my research into HIV AIDS, my hospitalization and the Veterans Administration psychologist I worked with who also helped GIs illegally stationed in Cambodia in the sixties and seventies (and terrorized into keeping quiet about it).

Rob and I discuss the phone harassment, break-ins, attempts to run me down – and my psychiatric hospitalization. We also talk about the political activities that seemed to lead the government to target me – including my research into HIV AIDS – and my inability to get help from the Seattle police. Then we cover the whole area of conspiracies in general, which are more accurately called State Crimes Against Democracy (SCADS)
