Green Policy Expert Admits: ‘Sorry, But I Cried Wolf on Climate Change’

“On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I’d like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created.” IMAGE: Author and environmental policy expert Michael Shellenberger. By Michael Shellenberger On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created over the past 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20…

Let’s Fact-Check Reuters: They Say DNA Vaccines Don’t Change Your Genetic Makeup – True or False?

Jon Rappoport, Guest Waking Times As my readers know, I’ve been reporting on new types of technology that could be used in a coming COVID-19 vaccine—and warning about the consequences. One such technology is: DNA vaccines. They would alter recipients’ genetic makeup permanently. But Reuters has seen fit to claim: “A future COVID-19 [DNA] vaccine will not genetically modify humans.” This comes from their “fact-check team” — May 18, 2020: “False claim: A COVID-19 vaccine will genetically modify humans.” To reach this conclusion, Reuters cites two people: “Mark Lynas, a visiting fellow at Cornell…

Hummingbirds Can See Totally Different Colors Outside The Human Spectrum

Jake Anderson, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times Scientists have known for a while that various animals perceive parts of the light and color spectrum differently and that this affects how different animals perceive color. A new study on broad-tailed hummingbirds has come to a surprising conclusion. According to researchers, these birds can see a great deal of color that is outside the human spectrum. Humans are so used to the rainbow spectrum that it is hard for us to even comprehend that there are different colors that we simply can’t perceive.…

COVID Symptoms of Power: Tech Billionaires Harvest Humanity

Dr. Mercola, Guest Waking Times Bill Gates has built a global empire around his technologies and “philanthropic” endeavors. His sheer wealth has allowed him to become a veritable superpower in his own right, rising to become the unelected global health tsar on COVID-19. Indeed, the World Health Organization and the White House pandemic response team even kowtows to his nonexistent medical expertise. Life cannot and will not go back to normal until we can vaccinate the entire global population, Gates says, and that same sentiment is being echoed from government leaders…

Latest DMT Study Addresses Eerie Prevalence of Hallucinations of ‘Interdimensional Entities’

Jake Anderson, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times Last month researchers released a new study on the hallucinogen DMT (or dimethyltryptamine) that provided fresh survey data on the phenomenon of DMT users experiencing and encountering sentient ‘entities’ while tripping. Scientists believe the findings could help to better understand near-death experiences and alien-abduction experiences, as well as develop treatments for mood and behavioral disorders. The study involved surveying over 2,000 DMT users, the majority of whom claimed to have had positive encounters and even emotional exchanges with beings they felt were advanced and benevolent. Most…

Psychedelic Experiences Disrupt Routine Thinking — And so has the Coronavirus Pandemic

Ron Shore, Guest Waking Times The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the widespread disruption of our usual routines. The ambiguity of when it will end, how things will unfold and what will happen in the future has resulted in a collective liminal state, a kind of a waiting area on the threshold of change. COVID-19 has undermined our usual expectations and assumptions. Evidence from my work on how our brains react to psychedelics tell me the transient anxiety — which occurs when expectations collapse — may yield benefits. To gain the…

Plastic Bottle Made From Plants Degrades in Just One Year

Jordan Davidson, EcoWatch Waking Times While some are trying to clean up the plastic pollution in the oceans, and others are removing it from beaches, one company is looking to end the need for plastic bottles that last hundreds of years and are rarely recycled. A Dutch company is looking to fight the plastic crisis with a plant-based alternative that degrades in one year, as The Guardian reported. Avantium, a biochemical company in the Netherlands, is fundraising for a new project that will turn sustainably grown crops into a plant-based plastic. The technology has gained the attention of…

Lockdown Insanity in Washington State

Jon Rappoport, Guest Waking Times WA Governor Jay Inslee has announced that any citizen of the state who refuses to be tested for COVID-19 will be locked down at home—not even permitted to go out and buy groceries. Zero Hedge: “As the press conference went on, one question kept coming up – what about enforcement? How will you ensure Washington State residents comply and what if they don’t?” REPORTER: “When it comes to contact tracing, how are you guys going to handle people or families who want to refuse to test…

Bees Are Thriving As Pollution Plummets and Environmental Conditions Improve

Elias Marat, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times With nearly every facet of humanity facing disruption and economic activities screeching to a halt, the world has witnessed nature being given a break that has perhaps no precedent in the modern era. As a result, marine life. And with the lockdown leading to less pollution, less traffic and a marked improvement in the environmental conditions across the globe, bees are thriving in a way they haven’t in years, reports Metro. The “new normal” of people shopping locally, traveling less, and not cluttering roads with cars…

Brilliant Green ‘Comet of the Year’ With 10 Million Mile Long Tail Will Be Visible All Week

Elias Marat, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times A brilliant bright-green comet with an incredible 11-million-mile long tail will be visible from Earth all week as it makes its once-in-11,597 years trip through the inner solar system. The massive comet, named Comet Swan or C/2020 F8, is comprised of space dust, ice, and gas and will be flying past our own planet before getting close to the sun and making its way back through the solar system. But what makes this one more special than most is the fact that the super…

These New Plant-Based Bottles Degrade in Only a Year – And Could Herald the End of Plastic

Elias Marat, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times As awareness increases about the growing problem of pollution, single-use plastics have come under for their massive contribution to rampant litter all around the world. But soon, we may be drinking soft drinks and beer from “all-plant” bottles, if new plans from major beverage makers come to fruition. Under a new plan being spearheaded by Danish beer manufacturer Carlsberg and multinational food and beverage titans Coca-Cola and Danone, a new plant-based plastic created from sugars extracted from sustainably-grown plants would replace fossil fuel-based plastics, reports The Guardian.…

Thanks to AG Barr and Senator McConnell, Patriot Act Will Soon Be Much Stronger and More Invasive

Jake Anderson, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times The birth of the modern security state took place in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks. Since then, there has been a slow but steady federal push for draconian surveillance powers. It has come from all branches of government–congressional, executive, and judicial–and from both political parties. Now that we’ve reached the second major inflection point of the 21st century–COVID-19–it would be easy to not see the newest push for a more expansive use of the Patriot Act. But it’s there in two new provisions that…

Bioweapon Labs Must Be Shut Down and Scientists Prosecuted

Dr. Mercola, Guest Waking Times The idea that SARS-CoV-2 originated in a bioweapons laboratory is gaining traction. May 3, 2020, The New York Times reported that during an ABC “This Week” interview Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had stated “the coronavirus originated in a lab in Wuhan.” Pompeo also accused China of covering up the leak. “Mr. Pompeo, the former C.I.A. chief and one of the senior administration officials who is most hawkish on dealing with China, said that ‘there’s enormous evidence’ that the coronavirus came from the lab, though he agreed…

Students At Cambridge Designed The UK’s Most Efficient Solar-Powered Electric Car

John Vibes, Truth Theory Waking Times Solar-powered cars are nothing new, but until very recently, most of the designs have been entirely unfeasible for serious travel. The technology is quickly improving though, as recently shown by a group of undergraduate students at Cambridge University who built one of the most efficient solar-powered electric cars yet. The students worked with Bridgestone and a team of Formula 1 racing engineers to design and build a vehicle that they named “Helia.” Bridgestone, the world’s largest tire and rubber company, developed low rolling-resistance tires specifically…

COVID CHAOS: A Closer Look At Coronavirus Testing

A remarkable story made headlines last week — a goat, a quail and a papaya tested positive for coronavirus. Following a request by the president of Tanzania to evaluate the country’s coronavirus test kits, state security services sent a series of non-human samples to the national health laboratory to be tested. The samples — which included goat, quail and papaya, as well as inorganic substances such as motor oil — were labelled with human names and ages, while technicians at the lab were not told of the plot. After the fruit and…

The Brave New World of Bill Gates and Big Telecom

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Guest Waking Times Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote last week about Malibu police’s ticketing Point Dume surfers $1,000 apiece for using the ocean during the quarantine. Was this merely an appalling police judgment at which we will laugh post-quarantine? Or does anyone else feel that this is the first wave of compliance and obedience training for something more permanent? Are powerful state and corporate entities using the current crisis to remove basic rights, and intensify pressures to promote vaccines and surveillance? Does anyone else feel the suffocating…

The Science of Fear: How the Elitists Use it to Control Us & How to Break Free

Mac Slavo, Guest Waking Times Fear is one of the most powerful tools the elites have at their disposal. Using the mainstream media, politicians and others who want world domination can inject fear into the public at the drop of a hat, making them easy to manipulate and control. Aristotle once said: “He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.” Fear is a powerful weapon, and it’s been used globally for the past few months.  People have shown that the instant the media tells them to live a life scared…
