The 5G-Based Internet of Things Exposes us to Excessive Radiation

5G - FROM BLANKETS TO BULLETS

by Arthur Firstenberg

The single most important fact about 5G that nobody is talking about is called “phased array.” It will totally change the way cell towers and cell phones are constructed and will transform the blanket of radiation which has enveloped our world for two decades into a million powerful beams whizzing by us at all times. Blake Levitt, author of Electromagnetic Fields: A Consumer’s Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves (Harcourt Br...

Eco Pax Mundi Agora Sides with Arthur Firstenberg in Raising the Alarm with the Switch to 5G Technology

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Friday, May 22, 2020,

As far as Eco Pax Mundi Agora is concerned, we are alarmed at what's coming with 5G technology. This is how we see it:

(1) The technology is based on a military weapon designed to exterminate the so-called enemy;

(2) You need an untold number of antennas to make 5G technology work. Moreover, we go from 'passive antennas' to 'active antennas': what will be the impact of these upon the built environment, 'nature' and wilderness alike? It appears that in Passeig the Gracia in central Barcelo...

# Resisting Geoengineering                           False Solutions on International Day for
Biological Diversity


Geoengineering Monitor 19 May 2020

by Coraina de la Plaza, GFC, Spain


May 22nd is International Day for Biological Diversity, and the theme chosen by the United Nations this year is “Our solutions are in nature”. This is a clear reference to Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) as a strategy for mitigating climate change and biodiversity loss. At the forefront of these so-ca...

Geoengineers test risky planetary engineering scheme in Australia

Experiment defies 193-country UN moratorium

MEXICO CITY, DAVAO CITY, MONTREAL, May 11—In a shocking move, a small group of Australian geoengineers have defied an international moratorium on the deployment of geoengineering technologies. To accomplish this, the project rebranded a risky geoengineering technology – in this case, brightening clouds to reflect solar energy back into space – as a plan to save th...

Eco Pax Mundi Agora Sides with Vijayendra for a May Day 2020 Resolution: Creating A Paradise on Earth at the Expense of Capitalism

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Monday, April 27, 2020, In : Re-embodiments politics 

This year Nature has given us a clear message. It sent us COVID 19 and halted capitalism for 4 months, made us stop burning fossil fuels and use just the bare essentials. And it has rewarded us with clean air, cleaned up our rivers and lakes, improved our human relations and restored wild life. There are dolphin in the Ganges in Kolkata and leopards are frolicking in our cities. Many birds have come back...

Eco Pax Mundi Agora Endroses the Earth Day Communiqué issued by Navdanya International

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Sunday, April 26, 2020, In : regenerative politics 
One could say that zoonotic viruses are one of multifarious Mother Nature's tongues to say 'learn to respect me!' and yet we insist on grossly penetrating her. 

The wet markets epitomise the 'very best' in human conduct: having rendered some species domesticated doesn't suffice. We need to subjugate the whole of Mother Nature to our fanciful whims. 

In this context, Navdanya International has issued an Earth Day Communiqué that is in utter consonance with Eco Pax Mundi Agora's remit. Hence Eco...

'Dark Waters': Forever Chemicals

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, In : Activism 
Chemical multinationals have been coming up with a number of superb pieces of lab engineering. They are 'superb' because, unlike plastics that are only very good in comparison, these are chemicals that never break down. Once released, they are on the Planet to stay through the aeons unless willingly removed by human action. That's why they are dubbed 'forever chemicals'. There are some 8 of these chemicals so far on the Planet. They are highly noxious and carcinogenic. They run freely in our ...

The Regenerative Movement Gives us Cause for Optimism, says Ronnie Cummins

“They say the darkest hour is right before the dawn.” – Bob Dylan, “Blood on the Tracks,” 1975

Beyond the media smog, the 24/7 fixation on the Trump cesspool and the endless distractions of the holiday season, I probably don’t have to remind you that the end of the modern era is at hand.

As most of us realize, even as we repress this thought in order to maintain our sanity, we are fast approaching “the point of no return,” whereby our 21st Century Climate Emergency and societal ...

The Italian Essayist Guido Dalla Casa Aptly Urges us to Overcome Industrial Civilization

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Sunday, October 20, 2019, In : Re-embodiments politics 
Guido Dalla Casa
Key points of Guido Dalla Casa's philosophy: 
  • We must become profoundly aware that we humans are an animal species which can be easily classified (Class: Mammals, Order: Primates). We are like a kind of cell in an organism, which is the Ecosphere or Earth. Therefore, the first value must be the good health of the entire organism;
  • This planet can support a maximum of 2 or 3 billion humans that are mostly vegetarians like the other primates, and with a level of consumpt...

Change The World Without Taking Power but with the Creation of Natural Carbon Sinks

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Monday, July 22, 2019, In : Re-embodiments politics 

I once read a Marxist book -and wrote a review thereof- entitled 'Change the World without Taking Power'. I guess the motto resonates with many of us in the altermondialiste movement. It's my belief that fulfilling the remit goes, to a large extent, by way of creating natural carbon sinks thereby sequestering carbon so that the latter becomes a dynamic of fertility and it's stropped from its performance as a global warmer and climate changer.  

In this succinct video (follow-up video,...

Localization as the Only Avenue to Bring Ecocides to an End

Challenging Authoritarianism: the prospect of localization

By Helena Norberg-Hodge

We urgently need widespread awareness of the big picture of economic deregulation and its impacts on our communities and personal lives. It is only ignorance about this system that enables the pseudo-solutions of Trump, Brexit, Duterte and others to gain strength, even as the global economic system marches onwards, unfettered. Despite the fact that these right-wing political forces are often branded as “anti-gl...

Regenerative Organic Agriculture can Sequester all the Carbon Generated by Industrial Capitalism

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Friday, June 29, 2018, In : decarbonization 

We are at the most critical moment in the history of our species, as man-made changes to the climate threaten humanity's security on Earth. But there is a technology for massive planetary geo-engineering that is tried and tested and available for widespread dissemination right now. It costs little and is adaptable to local contexts the world over. It can be rolled out tomorrow providing multiple benefits beyond climate stabilization.

The solution is farming. Simply put, we could sequester more...

EcoPaxMundiAgora.Org Sides with SumOfUs.Org to Denounce the Destruction of the Rainforest on the Part of Multinationals such as Cadbury

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, In : Re-embodiments politics 

Around Easter time, companies like Cadbury try to play up their wholesome image of a family-friendly chocolate company. The last thing Cadbury wants the public to know, is the dirty secret behind chocolate Easter eggs: the destruction of precious rainforests.

A study from our partner Mighty Earth shows: The cocoa used in Cadbury chocolate is grown illegally in national parks and protected areas all over the world. In some countries in West Africa, more than 90 percent of protected areas, such ...

A Critique of the Decoupling Strategy in Australia

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Friday, February 10, 2017, In : Relevant literature 

Ed. note: This excerpt is taken from a longer paper by the authors, which can be found here.

In late 2015 the CSIRO released its Australian National Outlook (ANO) Report (‘the Report’) which outlined 20 future scenarios for Australia, exploring various global and national sustainability challenges. The Report’s main conclusion was that sustainability is compatiblewith continuous economic growth defined in terms of rising GDP and that consumerist valuesdo not need to be questioned.

But whi...

ETC Group
09 July 2015

The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December will feature all the tightly choreographed production values of a Hollywood blockbuster. The cast will be huge: presidents and prime ministers at center stage, supported by thousands of extras, including protesters, riot police, and busloads of media. The script may still be under wraps, but the plot has already leaked: This time, in sharp contrast to the failed negotiations in Copenhagen in 2009, the plane...

Pope Francis’s encyclical takes on the Fossil Fuel Industry – and much more
18 June 2015

“Liberation Theology” or “Liberation Technology”?

Pope Francis’s sympathies for “Liberation Theology” – the radical Catholic message of Latin American clergy of the 1960s and 70s that called for social change – has been uncertain. He was a young priest when Liberation Theology was at its height and didn’t speak up when it fell out of favour with the Catholic hierarchy. In 201...
