Saw that before. Did you notice she provided zero rebuttal to the claims made by The Light Paper. Example:

 

"The paper is handed out free by volunteers in dozens of towns across the country, where local leaders have accused it of inflaming division and harassment with false and misleading claims about vaccines, the financial system and climate change, amid other more mundane articles on local politics, health and wellness."

 

So what claims have been made that are misleading? No evidence provided. 

 

"Other posts shared by the Light on Telegram have featured cartoons of gallows and included work addresses of "liable people to be held to account" for taking part in sinister plots to harm people with vaccines - plots for which there is no evidence."

 

Sorry Marianna, but your statement is not evidence that there is no plot, where's your evidence?

 

I could do this to the whole article, but you get the picture. These people are deplorable.

Dozens of giant turbines at Scots windfarms powered by diesel generators

Scottish Power admitted 71 of its windmills were hooked up to the fossil fuel supply after a fault developed with their power supply

Dozens of giant turbines on Scotland’s windfarms have been powered by diesel generators, the Sunday Mail can reveal. Scottish Power admitted 71 of its windmills were hooked up to the fossil fuel supply after a fault developed on the grid.

The firm said it was forced to act in order to keep the turbines warm during very cold weather in December. But a whistleblower has told the Sunday Mail the incident is among a number of environmental and health and safety failings.

 

The worker, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “The Scottish Government wants to make our country attractive to foreign investors as 40 per cent of the wind that blows across Europe blows across Scotland. However, that should not mean we put up with our waterways and nature being polluted with carbon from diesel generators and hydraulic oil.

Coal Plant Fired Up as Solar Panels Fail Because It’s Too Sunny

Britain has started burning coal to generate electricity for the first time in a month and a half, after the heatwave made solar panels too hot to work efficiently. The Telegraph has the story.

One unit at Uniper’s Ratcliffe-on-Soar coal power plant in Nottinghamshire started producing electricity for the first time in weeks on Monday morning, while another coal-powered plant was warmed up in case it was needed by the early afternoon.

The National Grid turned to coal to generate electricity as a rush to turn on air conditioning and fans across the country during the heatwave led to a spike in demand.

High temperatures over the weekend also reduced the amount of energy generated from solar panels. Output on Sunday was almost a third lower than a week earlier, despite temperatures climbing above 30 degrees Celsius across large parts of the country.

Solar panels are tested at a benchmark of 25°C. For every degree rise in temperature above this level, the efficiency is reduced by 0.5 percentage points.

The temperature level refers to the solar cell temperature, rather than the air temperature. In direct sunlight, the cells can easily reach 60 or 70 degrees.

Alastair Buckley, professor of organic electronics at the University of Sheffield, said: “Both days were largely sunny in the morning, so a good part of the reduction in output will be due to the efficiency reduction from higher temperatures on Saturday compared to Friday.

“Compared with a cool cloudy day, the cells might be a maximum of 25% less efficient.”

Supply was also lower because of depressed wind speeds, which hit turbine output, and some gas power plants being shut for maintenance.

Worth reading in full.

It’s reminiscent of how wind turbines have to be shut down when it’s too windy. In our renewables future, it seems only Goldilocks will have power.

To add to the absurdity, Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station was due to be shut last year and is now scheduled to be closed next year.

And what will we do then?

I’m not sure they’ve thought this through.

Considering all the plans in place for us all, it could be considered they have done a lot of thinking. I know I’m cynical but there seem to be so many more major issues across all essential services. I.e: reservoirs low, even though they’ve had years to sort it out. Food supplies being damaged by sewage pumped into the sea, deliberately imo. Oil prices ridiculously high even though we have access to cheaper products. Same for gas etc.

 

My simple logic is that, if there is a genuine problem with infrastructure, we should use very low risk prisoners near end of sentences. Chain gang style. Also take unemployed,  who have no health problems, whose total benefits add up to a wage and employ them to do something. Nothing against unemployed, just seem logical to pay them to work. Everyone wins. Plus by being involved directly in maintaining your local area etc, pride will be installed once more.

Food prices likely to rise again because of Ukranian dams being blown up.

 

Who knew so much of what we need came from the Ukraine.

 

We're an island surrounded by water, with tons of farming land (once, anyway) and yet here we are.

 

By design.

Everywhere I go I see fields growing nothing. And not supporting any animals either. Most counties could produce 100% of the food need for themselves. Plus extra towards counties with larger populations. All shortages are a deliberate act Imo.

TRUTH: Lab-grown “meat” produces 25x more carbon dioxide “pollution” than traditional animal husbandry

Tuesday, June 13, 2023 by: Ethan Huff

Despite claims that it is better for the environment than real meat, laboratory-grown fake “meat” produces 25 times more carbon dioxide (CO2) “pollution” than traditional animal husbandry, new research shows.

Every kilogram of lab-grown meat generates anywhere from 542 pounds (246 kg) to 3,325 pounds (1,508 kg) of CO2 emissions, rendering it anywhere from four to 25 times more harmful to the environment, based on global warming rhetoric, than conventional beef.

From “cradle to gate,” as they call it, the process of culturing and growing fake meat in a lab is far more energy intensive than simply letting real animals roam on natural pastures eating grasses and producing meat the natural way.

Lab-grown meat is great for the corporations that produce it, along with their shareholders, but it is anything but good for the natural environment.

“While the fake meat industry is being touted as an environmentally friendly and sustainable way to feed the world, the true intent is to recreate the kind of global control that Monsanto and others achieved through patented GMO seed development,” writes Dr. Joseph Mercola.

“In the end, lab-created meats are worse for the environment than livestock and will undoubtedly deteriorate human health to boot, just like GMO grains have.”

(Related: We have been warning you about the threat of lab-grown meat for at least a decade.)

“Climate friendly” claims for lab meat are fake, based on ideas and technologies that don’t even exist

The primary source of CO2 emissions in lab-grown meat comes from the “purification” processes, which require lots of earth-based fuel (fossil fuel) to complete.

“The bacteria used to produce the ‘meat’ releases endotoxins, and these must be eliminated from the growth medium or else the cells won’t reproduce properly,” Mercola explains about how the process works.

Research into lab-grown meat explains that the economic and environmental costs associated with creating the bacteria, or what is described as “pharmaceutical products,” are very high “since they are both energy and resource intensive.”

The fake meat industry is also notorious for lying about the “climate friendly” aspects of its technology, some of which is hypothetical and does not even exist. For instance, the industry claims that cyanobacteria hydrolysate used in fake meat production can occur in open concrete ponds to then be “harvested, sterilized, hydrolyzed and used as an animal cell growth medium,” even though such a process is not even possible.

“In short, the claims propping up the cultured meat industry are a sham, as the idea that cultured meat is a greener option is based on nonexistent technologies rather than the technologies that are in use,” Mercola warns.

Another lie of the fake meat industry is the idea that switching to cultured lab-made meat will help to cool the planet. The data shows that the opposite is actually true, especially over the longer term.

Then there is the gross factor of lab-grown meat, which contains fetal bovine serum or FBS, a growth medium obtained from unborn calves that are cut out of the womb and drained of their blood while still alive.

“Hence, most claims of cultured meat being animal-free or free of animal cruelty are false,” Mercola notes.

Pretty much everything the fake meat industry claims about its products is fake, from the environmental “benefits” all the way to the health “benefits.” Fake meat exists for the same reasons genetically modified organisms (GMOs) exist: to make a select few very rich while allowing these same select few to control the food supply and thin the human “herd” by feeding people poison presented as “food.”

Rotherham public 'take law into own hands' after thug seen with knife with man now in hospital with broken legs

 

Residents in Rotherham have decided to "take the law into their own hands" following numerous reports of knife crime in the town.

On Tuesday, June 13, officers from South Yorkshire Police reported that they received three reports of a man being seen with a knife, but were unable to locate anyone. Later that day, in Wath, officers arrived at the scene of a woman with injuries, reported to be stab wounds. Upon arrival they found her injuries were due to a pre-existing medical condition.

 

 

The locals seem to think this is a cover up. High police presence outside schools. 🤔

This is one of the ways they are trying to get us to accept the Emergency Alert System.     ".......Knifeman on the loose.....lockdown the local schools..."

But I know someone who was stabbed. It isn't a Psyop. Seems like they are trying to cover it up.
