When I was seventeen, I contributed to the non-compliance movement which prevented the very unfair Poll Tax from becoming a burden on families today. Today’s youth will soon be fighting a system that will burden their future family lives too.
Welcome to planet Earth.
Student debt is one thing, but unborn babies now saddled with debt have crossed a moral line.
Austerity – the policy of saving your way out of a demand shortfall – just does not work. In a shrinking economy, a country’s debt-to-GDP ratio rises rather than falls, and Europe’s recession-ridden crisis country have now saved themselves into a depression, resulting in mass unemployment, alarming levels of poverty and scant hope for the young.
The Greek and Spanish people this week, acted upon this fact. Expect many other countries to say “NO more babies in debt – time for a reset” too.

If the banking crisis of 2008 taught us anything, it’s that, if you can’t touch it, then you don’t own it! Unfortunately for us, there’s been a resource and asset war occurring since the fall of the Soviet Union.
We don't need you anymore!
Your pension is nothing more than electrons on a screen, so when the world’s reserve currency inevitably flips from the ‘Dollar’ to the ‘Yuan’, it will seal the deal for a cold war that never actually went away.
Sadly, pensions are linked to stock market activity and most importantly for this article – oil! The current slide of oil prices and thus energy prices are symptoms of an economic war as a result of Ukraine. Unfortunately, Russia has two aces up its sleeve. China and the 21st-century powerhouse called BRICS. Over half of the largest world economies are divesting out of the US Dollar’s reserve currency. Read the rest of this entry »

An old friend while enjoying a beer with me, surprisingly asked me “now the petrol prices are coming down again, doesn’t that show that predictions of peak oil are wrong?
“not,” I declared while choking on my Budweiser. “If you see the bigger global political picture, then you should be more inclined to install solar panels on your home not less” I stated.
I backed up my statement saying “You can entirely encapsulate the naivety and arrogance of people through the Sphinx. The world’s academics have spent lifetimes bolstering a contemporary worldview that doesn’t fit the actual evidence. Just like we see with peak oil.” Read the rest of this entry »

When Thomas Edison first invented a way to record sound waves, people at that time couldn’t comprehend the concept of recording sound. Today, we can’t comprehend a green orientated government, but it’s coming as sure as an iPod player exists today.
You can’t solve new world problems with old age politics.
As much as the establishment want to dismiss Russels Brand’s recent rants of revolution, he is in-tune with the up and coming generation. Today, revolution doesn’t have to include police kettling, placards or firebombing of yesteryear. It simply involves turning your back on 20th-century politics.
Green party membership has doubled in only one political term. You can probably blame David Cameron for hugging huskies for that, but now you’ll see the Moore’s Law taking effect on green politics. Fortunately, people are increasingly turning their backs on mainstream red/blue policies across the world that have nothing new to offer, other than more of the same? Read the rest of this entry »

Someone once said to me “A good rule of thumb for healthy eating is – if you see something advertised on TV, then avoid it!” I would be more specific and say avoid Aspartame and High Fructose Corn Syrup.
But, more importantly, I would like to add to this by also saying – if the contents of your dinner once lived in the Pacific Ocean, then abstain immediately.
What they can’t see won’t hurt them!
I first wrote about the information lockdown by governments and mainstream media a while ago, but the real scale of the Fukushima disaster is far worse than first thought.
I have four tins of tuna with a pre-Fukushima date on them which I am saving for a particular moment. Like keeping a bottle of wine with a good year, but apart from that, I will not eat Pacific Tuna again.
All efforts by the Japanese authorities to contain and prevent contaminated water entering into the environment have failed. This disaster is humanities largest disaster that is being deliberately un-reported by mainstream media – probably due to the helplessness of the situation. Read the rest of this entry »

The early bird catches the worm they say. The morning dew is a window of opportunity for the smartest birds to prepare themselves for the day ahead, but the morning sunshine will soon close this opportunity. This analogy is similar to buying solar panels today.
Proud to be a solar panel pioneer.
The smartest got the juiciest feed-in tariff rates, adopters today can still get a reasonable rate while the latecomers will find slim pickings or find that they are gone entirely.
The dawn of the solar panelled century is transcending, but there’s still time to benefit from the feed-in tariffs.
From its conception in 2009, the feed-in tariff scheme has spawned a solar panel revolution that we can all see on the rooftops around the country today. Many of those who opted to invest in solar panels are now sitting smugly (and rightly so) in their solar panelled homes. Read the rest of this entry »
