Shady deal involving Canadian Atlantic Fishery

A shady deal involving Canadian Atlantic Fishery (h/t Jeff Rowsell) Something is rotten with the state of the fishery in Canada’s Atlantic provinces and family members of Canada’s Liberal Party using a back-room deal to corner a lucrative chunk of the harvest of Arctic surf clams, giving indigenous interests competition by non-indigenous interests. It is not that federal Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc did not know about the shady deal being made: Tories ask ethics commissioner to probe fishery bid they say favours Liberal insiders Company behind winning bid is run by the brother of Nova Scotia Liberal MP Darrell Samson John Paul Tasker · CBC News · Posted: May 07, 2018 6:10 PM ET … Continue reading

Global warming? While Hell freezes over?

This is a long commentary that relates to our current cold spell and the context of the longer climate trends it is part of.  Of course, I hope that anyone reading it will enjoy doing so.  Some people insist that a long commentary should have an index.  Just in case that is important to any reader (Word Press suggest that it is), it is an afterthought and not part of the original version I posted yesterday, but here it is: Index • Introduction • Note on the Little Ice Age (added 2017 12 30) [Related commentary: Little Ice Age — Climate Trend Milestone?, added 2017 12 31] • Climate comparisons — … Continue reading

Love, Family, Law & Order, Civilization

The regulation of human sexuality produced the heterosexual family as well as the inter-generational transfer of property, knowledge, social traditions, and it resulted in the creation and refinement of laws and governments. The regulation of human sexuality was the beginning of civilization, the symbiosis of all of those things and those that grew out of and because of them: clans, villages, towns, nations, empires, societies, and more traditions and laws that made them function more smoothly. Civilization refined itself over the course of 10,000 years.  It evolved into something great, gradually caused living conditions and the quality of life for people to become better and better, as well as  ever … Continue reading

Renewable energy neither practical nor viable

Energy generation from renewable energy sources is simply not economical, compared to conventional sources of energy feeding into the transmission grid, but it can be and is an excellent source of tax revenue and more yet in secondary taxes.  It cannot produce a good return on investment and requires subsidies to cover the losses it incurs.  People are being frustrated by the relentless push for energy generation from renewable energy sources.  More and more it becomes apparent that renewable energy generation for nothing other than to replace generation of energy from conventional sources cannot be made to pay for itself.  Nevertheless, renewable energy drives up electric energy rates, the more … Continue reading

Debt-financing seriously troubles developed nations

Addiction to debt-financing put all developed nations in serious trouble, all of them, as far as I can tell, at least the OECD nations, countries that are members of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development.  Here are two examples: First the largest of them all, the United States National Debt Visit USADebtClock.com to learn more! The U.S. National Public Debt Outstanding represents the face amount or principal amount of marketable and non-marketable securities currently outstanding. – Source: U.S. Treasury [Update 2017 07 01, Note: On this day, at 7:00 a.m., the figure for the U.S. national debt was only $19.852 Trillion.] More must be added to that to get the … Continue reading

Wind turbines are truly “green”?

Index Wind-farm trouble in Ontario Wind turbines produce problems. Energy generation from wind has serious ups and downs, in Germany, in all of Europe. Wind-farm trouble in Ontario Anyone who is expecting the construction of wind turbines in their neighbourhood may wish to watch this video. It is likely that the video will tell everything one needs to know, to learn that “green” is not a very enjoyable experience for many people who suffer on account of wind turbines near them, that it is not even “green.” See for example the section that presents data on what environmental pollution is being addressed (needlessly or even not at all) by wind turbines: … Continue reading

Detroit bankruptcy: Gangs, drug dealers, decline of the economy

Detroit bankruptcy: Gangs, drug dealers, decline of the economy Yesterday I came across an interesting YouTube video by Al Profit: Detroit bankruptcy documentary on Crime: Gangs, drug dealers, decline of the economy (1hr 22min).  It describes a vicious circle, but two things struck me about the documentary. One is that its title does not necessarily describe the correct sequence of actions and consequences: gangs, drug dealers, decline of the economy. The other one is that it does not mention at all an obvious, major contributing reason for the decline and decay of Detroit. One of the figures of the YBI (Young Boys Inc.) interviewed in the documentary comes close to … Continue reading

Cuckoos in Bruderheim crowd out old lady and her son

Cuckoos in Bruderheim crowd out old lady and her son Many people assert that life in a small community is more peaceful than in a large city.  I guess they base their comparisons on what they read in the papers and have nothing else for comparison. The missus and I live in a small community, while I lived and worked for much of my life in both, large cities and small communities. Some things are not reported in the papers at all, especially not when they are small crimes to begin with, or are they?  If left to go on for long enough and in many places, small crimes can … Continue reading

Elder abuse endemic, e. g.: Yorkshire

This blog entry is about elder abuse and neglect by relatives of the elderly and, perhaps even more importantly, elder abuse – often fatal – by governments. The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” — Ronald Reagan In connection with the topic of this entry, there is an equally hard-hitting reality: How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have an ungrateful child. — King Lear. Shakespeare Be careful that things such as those reported in the following article will not happen to you.
