Climate change - flooding in Bangladesh
Flooding in Bangladesh: The world’s poorest 50% will have the lowest carbon footprint, the study says

Climate scientists warn that there is a finite amount of greenhouse gases that we can continue to release into the atmosphere before the planet warms to more than 1.5C from pre-industrial levels. By 2030, they say, we need to only emit as much carbon as the planet can absorb.

If this amount were split evenly and every adult on the planet had a share, by 2030 we could each emit 2.3 tonnes of CO2 every year.

The super-rich – many of whom have multiple homes, private jets and superyachts – emit a lot more than others.

But the global 1% are not just billionaires, or even millionaires – it includes anyone earning over $172,000. 

This study also looked at the world’s richest 10% – anyone earning over $55,000 – and found emissions were still high. The richest 10% will emit nine times more carbon than their share.

Traci Curth’s family has three cars, which she says is normal for most American families

One example of people in the top 10% is the Curths, a family of four in the suburbs of Toledo, Ohio. Traci Curth, her husband and her teenage daughter each drive a car. 

“The suburb I live in, that’s pretty much how everyone gets around,” says Traci.

Toledo has hot summers and cold winters, so the air-conditioning is on when the heating isn’t. The family has a freezer loaded with chicken breasts and mince beef – they eat meat about four or five times a week.

“I would say that’s pretty normal for most American families,” says Traci.

Togonin, an English teacher and environmental educator, doesn’t own a car and goes to work on moped

For English teacher Togonin Severin Togo in Kati, Mali, life is quite different. 

Like 80% of people in the world he doesn’t have a car – he travels to work on his moped. 

“Cars are considered to be for rich people,” he says. 

He gave up meat recently, but before that he ate it just two or three times a week. And – like 90% of people around the world – he’s never been on an aeroplane. 

But he does worry about emissions from people burning waste in his city, where the waste management system is not functional, as well as the inefficient wood and gas burners used for cooking.

Oxfam’s report found that it’s the 40% in the middle doing the most to curb emissions. 

While their carbon footprint rose significantly between 1990 and 2015, it is set to drop, thanks to changes being made at government level in sectors like transport and energy since the Paris climate agreement in 2015. 

But governments need to do more, Oxfam’s Naftoke Dabi says, calling for bans and taxes on “carbon-intensive luxury goods, such as mega-mansions, SUVs or space tourism”.

“They need to tackle the emissions of the richest because they’re hugely responsible for the climate crisis, and it’s the poorest that are paying the highest price,” she says.

(BALTIMORE) John Hopkins Study Report: Identifies compounds undisclosed by popular brands including industrial chemicals, caffeine #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Oct.30: Vaping aerosols contain thousands of unknown chemicals and substances not disclosed by manufacturers, including industrial chemicals and caffeine, Johns Hopkins University researchers found…..

#AceHealthDesk says according to BBC Radio 4 today NHS is being asked to provide E-cigarettes as a way to stop smoking but Johns Hopkins researchers find thousands of unknown chemicals in electronic cigarettes …

BBC Health says that E-cigarettes could soon be prescribed on the NHS in England to help people stop smoking tobacco products: The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency is inviting manufacturers to submit goods for approval to be prescribed: It could mean England becomes the first country in the world to prescribe e-cigarettes as a medical product

#AceDailyNews says this Golden Age is leading more to #ProfitB4People than #PeopleB4Profit as was previously foretold at the end of days …

An e-cigarette and smoke

Jill Rosen/ Oct 7

John Hopkins Research Report:

The study is the first to apply to vaping liquids and aerosols an advanced fingerprinting technique used to identify chemicals in food and wastewater. The results, just published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology , suggest people who vape are using a product whose risks have yet to be fully determined and could be exposing themselves to chemicals with adverse health effects.”I have a problem with how vaping is being marketed as more healthy than smoking cigarettes. In my opinion we are just not at the point when we can really say that.”Assistant professor, School of Engineering

“Existing research that compared e-cigarettes with normal cigarettes found that cigarette contaminants are much lower in e-cigarettes. The problem is that e-cigarette aerosols contain other completely uncharacterized chemicals that might have health risks that we don’t yet know about,” said senior author Carsten Prasse, an assistant professor of environmental health and engineering at the Whiting School of Engineering and the Bloomberg School of Public Health. “More and more young people are using these e-cigarettes and they need to know what they’re being exposed to.”

Previous studies of e-cigarettes have looked specifically for evidence of the hazardous chemicals found in traditional cigarettes. But here the researchers performed a nontargeted analysis to explore the full range of chemicals both in the vaping liquid and the aerosols.

Prasse and his team were the first researchers to test vape samples with chromatography/high-resolution mass spectrometry, a chemical fingerprinting technique more commonly used to identify organic compounds in wastewater, food, and blood. Although it’s possible to buy vaping products in hundreds of flavors, for consistency they tested only tobacco-flavored liquids sold by four popular brands—Mi-Salt, Vuse, Juul, and Blu. They found thousands of unknown chemicals in the liquid, and the number of compounds increased significantly in the aerosol. Furthermore, they detected condensed hydrocarbon-like compounds, typically associated with combustion, which manufacturers say is not happening during vaping. In traditional cigarettes, the condensed hydrocarbons generated during combustion are toxic.

“One of the main ways electronic cigarettes have been marketed is that they operate at temperatures below combustion, which would make them safer than traditional smoking,” said lead author Mina Tehrani, a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Public Health. “Our study shows that this novel fingerprinting approach can be applied to assess whether combustion-like processes are going on.”

The team found nearly 2,000 chemicals, the vast majority of which are unidentified. Of those the team could identify, six substances were potentially harmful, including three chemicals never previously found in e-cigarettes. Tehrani was particularly surprised to find the stimulant caffeine in two of the four products. Caffeine has previously been detected in e-cigarettes but only in the caffeine-oriented flavors like coffee and chocolate.

“That might be giving smokers an extra kick that is not disclosed,” she said. “We wonder if they are adding it intentionally.”

Besides caffeine, the team found three industrial chemicals, a pesticide, and two flavorings linked with possible toxic effects and respiratory irritation.

Prasse said he became interested in studying vaping products after his cousin, a former smoker, started vaping, insisting it was healthy. He plans to send that cousin this paper.

“People just need to know that they’re inhaling a very complex mixture of chemicals when they vape. And for a lot of these compounds we have no idea what they actually are,” Prasse said. “I have a problem with how vaping is being marketed as more healthy than smoking cigarettes. In my opinion we are just not at the point when we can really say that.”

Co-author Ana M. Rule, an expert in metals exposures from vaping with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, says many young people who vape never smoked—so they aren’t making a healthier choice, only starting out with a risky one.

“There are millions of middle school and high school students vaping that would not otherwise think of smoking,” she says. “For them there is no risk reduction, only increased risk.”

Authors also include Matthew N. Newmeyer, a postdoctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The work was supported by grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, and NIH Roadmap for Medical Research.

(GLASGOW) #COP26 REPORT: Climate Change Sponsors Sky, the summit has 10 other major sponsors, including energy giants Hitachi, National Grid, Scottish Power and SSE, US tech titan Microsoft, and FTSE companies GSK, NatWest, Reckitt, Sainsbury’s and Unilever #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.29: Companies that stumped up millions of pounds to sponsor the Cop26 summit have condemned it as “mismanaged” and “very last minute” in a volley of complaints as next month’s event in Glasgow draws near.

#AceDailyNews says #COP26 SPONSORS line-up in readiness behind the scenes to LOBBY for their cause of putting #ProfitB4People and not #PeopleB4Profit as the 10 major ones provide the most CASH and WANT it to go just one way THEIR’S ….

The Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow, Scotland

Meanwhile The Guardian reports they are complaining about being mismanaged ….

The sponsors, which include some of Britain’s biggest companies, have raised formal complaints blaming “very inexperienced” civil servants for delayed decisions, poor communication and a breakdown in relations between the organisers and firms in the run-up to the landmark talks.

The Guardian understands that a letter to the organisers in May, written by the broadcaster Sky and co-signed by senior leaders from other Cop26 sponsors, raised concerns over plans for the event, followed by another co-signed letter in recent weeks.

The UK is running its Cop26 presidency from within the Cabinet Office, under the leadership of the former business secretary Alok Sharma, who is the Cop26 president, and the businessman Nigel Topping who was appointed the government’s high-level climate action champion last year. Sponsorship is expected to help defray a policing bill estimated to reach up to £250m.

Alongside Sky, the summit has 10 other major sponsors, including energy giants Hitachi, National Grid, Scottish Power and SSE, US tech titan Microsoft, and FTSE companies GSK, NatWest, Reckitt, Sainsbury’s and Unilever. Unilever has denied signing the letter penned by Sky. Other lower tier “partners” include the car maker Jaguar Land Rover and the furniture retailer Ikea.Q&A

What is Cop26?

One source, employed by a Cop26 sponsor, said that “the biggest frustration” was the lack of information about how the event will run, and the role for its key backers, because important questions have gone unanswered and planning decisions have been delayed.

“They had an extra year to prepare for Cop due to Covid, but it doesn’t feel like this time was used to make better progress. Everything feels very last minute,” the source said.

The upcoming climate talks, considered the last chance to put the world on track to meet its climate ambitions, are due to take place in early November after the event was postponed by a year because of the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020.

They have already been thrown into turmoil by suggestions that the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, will skip the event, threatening the chances of a global pact with the world’s biggest carbon dioxide emitter.

Organisers of Cop26 promised sponsors an “outstanding opportunity” and “unique benefits” in exchange for their support, including a chance to promote their brands at the conference “green zone” exhibition space and the participation of government ministers at their events.

But in multiple emails and official letters the companies have complained to organisers about unmet expectations, and deepening concerns over delays to the green zone plans. They have also raised complaints that ministers have not always been available for their events in the run-up to Cop26, as agreed as part of the sponsor deals.

Other sources have described the “shifting goal posts” and “inertia” plaguing the Cop26 planning as “deeply frustrating”.

Many of the event’s corporate backers regularly take part in high-profile sponsorship deals for big events, and have been left bewildered by the slow progress of the Cop26 events, another source explained.

The source blamed the “very young, very inexperienced” civil servants tasked with planning the event for taking a “top-down public sector approach” that has raised hackles among sponsors.

“It’s clear that many of them have very little experience managing relationships in the private sector, or even experience attending a Cop event,” the source said.

The energy company sponsors – Hitachi, National Grid, Scottish Power and SSE – are understood to be particularly frustrated because they were under the impression that no other energy brands would feature at Cop26. However, the “blue zone”, which is organised by the UN, will include rival brands.

Ministers had been due to release three key documents on Monday on the government’s plans to achieve its net zero target by 2035, but publication has been delayed owing to the murder of the MP Sir David Amess.

The documents reveal a stark split within the cabinet, understood to be between on one side Boris Johnson, the prime minister, Kwasi Kwarteng, the business secretary, and Michael Gove, responsible for improving the UK’s homes, all seeing benefits to strong climate action; and on the other, the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, a free-market hawk instinctively opposed to government intervention.

All three papers are now expected to come later in the week, with the government seeking to preserve a show of unity over the publications.

The row over the government’s handling of Cop26 planning has emerged amid public order concerns, with up to 150,000 protesters expected to take to Glasgow’s streets in early November alongside the crucial climate talks, which will require one of the largest policing operations ever undertaken in Britain.

Countries and organisations planning to host events have also said they fear that increased costs will cause problems for developing nations.

Multiple participants told the Guardian earlier this month that the cost of renting Cop26 pavilions – event spaces for hosting workshops, panel discussions and keynote speeches during the conference – is considerably higher than it was at Cop25 in Madrid, with some saying it had increased by as much as 30%.

A Cop26 spokesperson said the organisers were “working closely” with sponsors which would increase the value-for-money for taxpayers, and reduce the overall financial cost of Cop26.

A Whitehall veteran of Cop summits said: “It feels like some of these sponsors have forgotten the actual reason we’re in Glasgow. Cop isn’t about branding, it’s about tackling climate change. Keeping 1.5C in reach is the best thing you can do for your bottom line: they would do well to remember this.” 

This article was amended on 18 October 2021 to clarify that the letter written by Sky and co-signed by other sponsors was sent in May, not July, and came before a second letter was sent to organisers by unconfirmed signatories. The subheading was also amended to remove the names of specific Cop26 sponsors.

(WORLDWIDE) #Climate Change & Global Warming Report: The Group of 20 rich countries are divided over phasing out coal and committing to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius as they prepare for a crucial summit in Rome next week, sources familiar with the negotiations said #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.22: The need to curb emissions will be high on the agenda of the Rome G20 gathering on Oct. 30-31, seen as a key stepping stone immediately ahead of broader United Nations climate talks, called #COP26, to be held in Glasgow, Scotland.

#AceDailyNews says that according to a report G20 split over coal, 1.5 degree climate limit ahead of Rome summit according to sources and so far big polluters such as China and India have dug in their heels and little progress has been made since G20 energy and environment ministers met in Naples in July, said three sources, asking not to be named due to the sensitivity of the talks

Just as #COP26 is due to get underway and leaders look at #ProfitB4People again ….

“Countries are not moving, at the moment they are still just making sure their positions are heard loud and clear,” said one of the sources.

However he added that such intransigence was normal at this stage and any concessions were unlikely to come before G20 climate sherpas meet face-to-face next Thursday and Friday, immediately before their leaders’ weekend meeting.

“Where I see the problem is in the commitment to 1.5 degrees and in the phase out of coal and fossil fuels by China, India and Russia,” said another source, a G20 minister.

In Naples, energy and environment ministers recognized the desirability of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees but fell short of a clear commitment to achieve the goal.

They also failed to reach unanimous agreement on fixing dates to end fossil fuel subsidies, halt international financing of coal projects and phase out coal power altogether, asking leaders to bridge the gaps at the upcoming Rome summit.

Big-hitters stay home

At least four G20 leaders are not expected to come to Rome, including China’s Xi Jinping, at the helm of the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitter, and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, head of the largest energy producer.

One source said while such absences were “not a great political signal,” they would not necessarily prevent progress.

Neither Russia, China nor India have committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050, considered a vital goal in limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees.

So far China is proving most reluctant to commit to the 1.5 degree ceiling, while India is most intransigent in not pledging net zero emissions by 2050, one of the sources said.

China and India are also among a group of countries that have not yet presented new national plans, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) ahead of COP 26, on how they will help curb climate change.

The COP26 president, Britain’s Alok Sharma, said in a speech this month the G20, which accounts for 80 percent of global emissions, would be “make, or break” for achieving success in Glasgow.

However, one of the sources said breakthroughs were more likely in Glasgow than in Rome.

Big emitters like China, India and Russia tend to feel pressured and hectored by the Western countries at the G20, he said, making them defensive and reluctant to concede ground.

The much larger UN forum was more “neutral” and conducive to compromise, he said.

The Rome G20 will also focus on the coronavirus pandemic and how to foster global economic recovery, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who will chair the meeting, said on Wednesday.

It will be their first global assessment on the science of global heating since 2013.

The politicians are due to gather for a climate summit, known as COP26, in Glasgow.

After two weeks of virtual negotiations between scientists and representatives of 195 governments, the IPCC will launch the first part of a three-pronged assessment of the causes, impacts and solutions to climate change.

It is the presence of these government officials that makes the IPCC different from other science bodies. After the report has been approved in agreement with governments, they effectively take ownership of it. 

On Monday, a short, 40-page Summary for Policymakers will be released dealing with the physical science. 

ReutersThe IPCC will also look at the state of the Arctic as the climate warms

It may be brief, but the new report is expected to pack a punch.

“We’ve seen over a couple of months, and years actually, how climate change is unfolding; it’s really staring us in the face,” said Dr Heleen de Coninck, from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, who is a coordinating lead author for the IPCC Working Group III. 

“It’s really showing what the impacts will be, and this is just the start. So I think what this report will add is a big update of the state of the science, what temperature increase are we looking at – and what are the physical impacts of that?” 

So what can we expect from the upcoming report?

According to many observers, there have been significant improvements in the science in the last few years, 

“Our models have gotten better, we have a better understanding of the physics and the chemistry and the biology, and so they’re able to simulate and project future temperature changes and precipitation changes much better than they were,” said Dr Stephen Cornelius from WWF, an observer at IPCC meetings.

“Another change has been that attribution sciences have increased vastly in the last few years. We can make greater links between climate change and extreme weather events.” 

As well as updates on temperature projections, there will likely be a strong focus on the question of humanity’s role in creating the climate crisis. 

In the last report in 2013, the IPCC said that humans were the “dominant cause” of global warming since the 1950s.

Thomas LohnesCars wrecked in a flood in Germany

It’s expected that this time the IPCC will also outline just how much of an influence humans are having on the oceans, the atmosphere and other aspects of our planetary systems. 

One of the most important questions concerns sea-level rise. This has long been a controversial issue for the IPCC, with their previous projections scorned by some scientists as far too conservative.

“In the past they have been so reluctant to give a plausible upper limit on sea-level rise, and we hope that they finally come around this time,” said Prof Arthur Petersen, from UCL in London.

As the world has experienced a series of devastating fires and floods in recent months that have been linked to climate change, the report will also include a new chapter linking extreme weather events to rising temperatures. 

Many have welcomed this development.

“I remain hopeful that the scientific evidence will show the stark reality of a world already altered by our rapidly changing climate and will motivate all nations to deliver urgent emission reductions and the necessary amount of climate finance at COP26,” said Mohammed Adjei Sowah, who is the mayor of Accra in Ghana and vice chair of the C40 group of cities.

“We only need to look out of our windows to see that the climate crisis is already here. Cities such as Accra and nations such as Ghana, which have contributed the least to greenhouse gas emissions, will experience many of the greatest impacts.”

One of the things that gives the report additional muscle is the fact that it is not just one particular research paper on one topic – the reviewers consider all the research carried out on each area of focus.

“Sometimes the IPCC gets criticised for being focused on consensus, and it’s suggested that this can weaken statements,” said Dr Emily Shuckburgh, from the University of Cambridge.

“But the fact that it is a summary across multiple lines of evidence is incredibly powerful and incredibly useful.”

One key question in the new summary will be about the 1.5C temperature target. The climate summit held in the French capital, Paris, in 2015, committed nations to try to limit the rise in global temperature from pre-industrial times to no more than 1.5 degrees. 

And in 2018, the IPCC released a special report on keeping to this target.

“That report showed very clearly was that there are clear, clear benefits to limiting warming to 1.5C and those benefits have only become clearer over the past three years,” said Dr de Coninck, who was one of the key authors of that study.

“If this report says something about that temperature limit in relation to emissions and how they are developing, it will have a political influence on COP26 I think.”

With just a few months to go until world leaders meet in Glasgow for the climate conference that is seen as the most important since the Paris agreement came into being in 2015, this new report will be required reading for all attendees.

“I think it’s going to be a wake-up call, there’s no doubt about that,” said Richard Black, an honorary research fellow at the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London.

“But then again, so are some of the real world events that we’re seeing around us at the moment.”

(LONDON) #COP26 Reality Check Report: Rich nations “must deliver now” on long-promised funding to help poorer countries fight climate change, says the President of the 26th United Nations #ClimateChange Conference which takes place in Glasgow in November #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.27: The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021: The climate talks will bring together heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change: As COP26 Presidency, the UK is committed to working with all countries and joining forces with civil society, companies and people on the frontline of climate change to inspire action ahead of #COP26.

#COP26 #ClimateChange……How much is the developing world getting to fight climate change ? Net zero targets are ‘pie in the sky’ So what will really be the result of another group of rich nations sitting down eating expensive meals in expensive hotels and backed by so many companies who caused the problem …..It has become “a matter of trust”, Alok Sharma says please Go to the COP26 website for more information.

By Chris Morris
Reality Check Correspondent

The developed world had pledged to provide $100bn (£720m) a year by 2020, but this has still not been achieved so what’s next….?

Climate finance was discussed at length during a meeting in London of ministers and officials from more than fifty countries, 

According to the senior UN climate representative Patricia Espinosa, developing countries “were very insistent and very clear in their messages” that they expect commitments made up to 2020 to be met. 

It is going to be hard enough for rich countries to adjust to the need to remove fossil fuels and carbon from their own economies. 

But it is going to be a lot more challenging in developing nations, where there is far less money to pay for new infrastructure and technology. 

And there are an awful lot of people under threat.

So funding is needed for:

  • adaptation – adjusting to the growing effects of climate change
  • mitigation – reducing the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere

How much has been promised?

As long ago as 2009, the developed world agreed it would provide $100bn a year by 2020 to help poorer countries:

  • deal with the effects of climate change 
  • build greener economies in the future 

But, although official figures have not yet been released, an expert reportcommissioned by the United Nations concludes the target has not been reached – even though a new and more ambitious target is now supposed to be set for 2025. 

“The $100bn commitment should be seen as a floor not a ceiling,” lead author Amar Bhattacharya, from the Brookings Institution, says.

“Some progress has been made – but a lot more needs to be done.”

For many countries, this is the biggest issue to resolve in the run-up to Cop26 – and the very poorest are demanding action.

How far short are the pledges? 

It is quite hard to calculate what money should be included in the overall figure, because it is a complicated mix of money from governments, international lenders and private companies.

But the UN and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) estimate the total had reached nearly $79bn by 2018 – and failed to reach $100bn by 2020. 

Building towards the $100bn target. Climate finance provided for developing countries/$bn.  .

Between 2016 and 2018, 43% of the funding went to Asia, 25% to Africa and 17% to the Americas – a lot of it spent on green energy or transport infrastructure. 

But far more will be needed.

Who is not paying enough?

The rich countries recognise they have not yet met the target they set themselves. 

“Within the G7 [group of rich countries], the three countries that have been the leaders are Germany, Japan and France in that order,” Mr Bhattacharya says. 

The UK and Canada are slightly behind them – but the two big laggards are the United States and, particularly, Italy. 

ReutersThe UK will be hosting Cop26

In April, the US announced it would double its 2016 climate-finance contributions to $5.7bn by 2025 – but compared with the size of its economy, that is still very small. 

Meanwhile, Italy provides only about $0.6bn per year.

Both countries have signed up to a big push to increase the overall amount of money provided, but that will need domestic political approval. 

“President Biden has indicated to me his total commitment to helping to make that happen,” US Climate Envoy John Kerry says. 

“If they [the developed world] do not come together and produce that, it is going to be exceedingly hard to get any kind of broad-based agreement.”

So there is an expectation further announcements will be made between now and Cop26. And ministers from Germany and Canada have been tasked with developing a “credible delivery plan” to make sure the $100bn figure is achieved. 

But experts say that should be only the beginning. 

Dr Alina Averchenkova, from the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, says: “$100bn isn’t going to do it – we need to move trillions in both public and private money. 

“The pandemic has shown us it can be done when there is the political will. 

“Unfortunately, climate change is quickly becoming the same kind of emergency – and it will be with us for the long term.” 

Are there any strings attached to the money?

Yes. By 2018, about three-quarters of the government money made available for climate action in developing countries was in the form of loans that need to be paid back, rather than grants that do not. 

The share of grants was higher to the very poorest countries – but still less than half the total. 

And that is a big problem in countries, many already heavily in debt, where Covid has made access to international funds even more pressing.

“Developing countries cannot just rely on loans, so it is going to be really important that more climate finance is provided in grants,” Dr Averchenkova says. 

“It’s never going to be the whole amount – but it needs to be more.”

So it is the quality as well as the quantity of funding that matters. 

And the message from the world’s poorer countries is pretty simple – if you want ambitious climate targets, you are going to have to pay for them.

(USA) INVESTIGATION: #BigPharma Drugs Experimental Drugs Approved: But Natural News reports three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF and FDA suppresses its use as #ProfitB4People in this chimera era #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Nov.23: Editor says in todays world of money talks and #ProfitB4People the building of a ‘ Chimera ‘ is now evident daily ….. #BigPharmas want to control the drug market and side-effects of most drugs have long-term affects in many cases leading to producing more drugs they say to combat these…. of course the real truth is they create more and now they are beginning to put more untested and experimental drugs out with all the hype and fanfare of eventual ‘ cure for ALL ills ‘ and thus like lab rats people become their testing ground and the poor will become their stamping ground … This article shows just one step towards a ‘ Drug Induced Future ‘ that places money at the top of the agenda #AceNewsDesk reports 
The history of the suppression of medical science in America is a long one, filled with true accounts of pioneering doctors and clinicians being threatened, intimidated and even assassinated in order to bury emerging cures and keep the “sick care” industry in control. (The American Medical Association, for example, has been found guilty by the U.S. federal courts of a conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry, by the way.)

Over the last few days, we’ve learned that before being found shot in the chest and floating in the river, pioneering medical researcher Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body

While GcMAF is perfectly legal as a treatment in dozens of advanced nations around the world, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has outlawed it, calling it an “unapproved drug

In this article, I summarize the videos, articles and documents covering GcMAF and the mysterious death of Dr. Bradstreet

Is there a motive for the murder of pioneering cancer researchers working on a possible

A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable

Would the cancer industry murder doctors to protect its profits

Investigation: Heres what we know so far……….. Multiple hat tips to all the outstanding citizen journalists, video creators and bloggers who have created the items cited below:

U.S. govt. search warrant document served against Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet to confiscate GcMAF from his research facility

Video that connects the dots between Dr. Bradstreet, GcMAF, cancer cures and the suppression of medical science by the U.S. government

Yet another doctor was just found murdered inside his home here on the East Coast of Florida. This makes six doctors to be found dead in the last month just from this region of the country alone. Four out of the six were found dead here in Florida. We lost the holistic Dr. Teresa Sievers, MD, who was found murdered in her Florida home just weeks ago. We’ve also lost the alternative Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, MD, who was found in a river with a gunshot to his chest. He’d recently moved to Georgia from Florida. We’ve also lost the Osteopath. Dr. Riley, who was found in Georgia at her home; just a few hours from the Florida border. She was found with a gunshot wound to her head.

Now we’ve lost Dr. Schwartz MD, who was found murdered in his home, on Sunday, July 19th, 2015. This was four weeks to the day after the death of the first physician: (Dr. Bradstreet MD) who I broke the story on a month ago. His family is still seeking answers as to what happened to him and they’re some of the kindest people I know. The latest MD, Dr. Schwartz, in the picture above, lived just north of the fit, healthy, holistic Dr. Hedendal; who was the second doctor to be found dead this past Father’s Day, in Boca Raton. This was the same day that Dr. Holt died at the age of 33. Both were fathers; and again, both men died here in Florida on June 21st, 2015.

SCIENCE.NaturalNews.com entry describing the extraordinary benefits of GcMAF in a published study:

Stepwise incubation of purified Gc protein with immobilized beta-galactosidase and sialidase generated probably the most potent macrophage activating factor (termed GcMAF) ever discovered, which produces no adverse effect in humans…

After about 16-22 administrations (approximately 3.5-5 months) of GcMAF, these patients had insignificantly low serum enzyme levels equivalent to healthy control enzyme levels, ranging from 0.38 to 0.63 nmole/min/mg protein, indicating eradication of the tumors. This therapeutic procedure resulted in no recurrence for more than 4 years.

In other words, the administration of GcMAF

(TOKYO, Japan.) Japanese Officials To Appeal Whale Hunting Ban, Resume Commercial Industry: According to a report the ban only covers ‘ Whale Species Deemed to be at Sustainable Population Levels and Propose Setting a ‘ Catch Quota for Stocks Recognised as Healthy by the ICW scientific committee #AceNewsDes k reports

#AceNewsReport – July.05: Japanese officials have announced they plan to seek approval by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to partially resume commercial whaling: Officials argue their proposal only covers whale species deemed to be at sustainable population levels and “will propose setting a catch quota for species whose stocks are recognised as healthy by the IWC scientific committee,” Hideki Moronuki, an official in charge of whaling at Japan’s fisheries agency, told Agence France-Presse………………….The proposal, to be presented at a meeting this September in Brazil, does not specify which type or how many whales are intended for the hunt but that several populations are no longer considered depleted ………..Proposed changes also include measures to change the IWC’s decision-making process to a simple majority when it comes to setting catch quotas, rather than three-quarters, citing current dysfunction and a desire to build more cooperation: Tokyo has regularly sought the IWC to ease its moratorium on commercial whaling and for decades have continued killing whales under a “scientific research” loophole not only in Japanese waters but the high seas as well (even though the Antarctic Sea is an internationally designated sanctuary for whales). The nation claims research is necessary to prove whale populations are sustainable enough to reopen commercial hunting………………….Earlier this year, the IWC noted Japan had fulfilled its annual quota of 333 harvested whales in Antarctic waters, sparking international outrage when it was revealed that more than one-third of those were pregnant…………….Since commercial whaling was banned in 1986, nearly 32,000 whales have been killed by whaling. Japan launched its scientific whaling program the following year. While Japan hunts whales under the guise of “science”, Iceland and Norway openly object the moratorium and have since continued commercial hunting #AceNewsDesk reports

Commercial whaling played a vital role in rejuvenating the Japanese economy in the years following the Second World War………………….At the time, whale meat was heavily consumed, but today it rarely winds up on the dinner plate……………….According to an opinion poll of nearly 1,800 voters, only 14 percent of Japanese people eat whale meat, while uneaten frozen stockpiles of meat have doubled to 4,600 tons between 2002 and 2012.

So, why are officials pushing to resume commercial whaling? Political scientist Keiko Hirata suggests Japan – normally cooperative in global affairs – continues to hunt whales because of cultural and political reasons…………….In Japanese culture, she says, whales are seen more akin to a fish than a charismatic mammal…………………….Furthermore, whaling efforts are overseen by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries – a department that has faced little domestic pressure to end its whaling program.

Muhammad Durrani, Muhammad Durrani, 38, pictured outside court, allegedly attacked the 27 year-old woman after picking her up outside a live music club in Clapham, south London

Detective Constable Peter Monaghan, from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: “This woman booked the cab in good faith to safely take her home. Durrani, realising the vulnerability of his victim, abused her trust and raped her.

“This assault has had a significant impact upon her, and her life, and I would like to thank her for having the courage to come forward and give evidence in court.”

Story of original: An Uber driver is accused of grabbing a customer from her doorstep and raping her on the back seat of his cab, a court heard.

Muhammad Durrani, 38, allegedly attacked the 27 year-old woman after picking her up outside a live music club in Clapham, south London, jurors heard.

When they arrived at her home he got out and followed her before lifting her up in his arms and carrying her back to his Toyota, it is claimed.

The alleged victim gave Durrani a ‘one star rating’ and sent Uber a complaint for ‘unprofessional behaviour’ later the same day, Southwark Crown Court heard.

She told police in interview: ‘I was obviously very very drunk, and he was the sober driver who picked me up and took me to the back of his car without my wanting him to.

‘He picked me up, he carried me to his car, I ended up in the back of his car and he performed a sex act and I didn’t remember ever giving any formal consent for that.’

The woman had spent the night drinking with girlfriends in London Bridge and Clapham before ordering the Uber taxi.

She admitted drinking around ‘six medium or large glasses of wine’ throughout the evening.

‘I remember thinking I was feeling quite drunk, I need to go home because I thought that was the safest option,’ she said.

Durrani collected her from Northcote Records in Clapham Junction just after midnight on July 24, 2016, the court heard.

She fell asleep but was woken by Durrani as they arrived around the corner from her home.

The alleged victim said: ‘He woke me up and said we’ve arrived. I then said thank you, got out the car and had my handbag with me.

‘Because I had been drinking I was a bit disoriented, trying to get my bearings I was walking towards my house trying to find my keys.

‘He then came out and said “I will help”. I said “thank you but I’m fine”.

‘He followed me to my door. He then picked me up and carried me to the backseat.’

The woman said she was ‘confused’ and ‘bewildered’ when Durrani picked her up and didn’t shout out.

‘I don’t remember anything being said, I just remember being scared’, she said. ‘The next thing I remember is just lying there. He moved my playsuit to one side and started performing a sex act on me.’

Durrani then asked if she would perform a sex act on him and lowered his trousers to expose himself, the court heard.

The alleged victim said she ‘kept her mouth shut’ and tried to move her head to the side as he kissed her.

She said she managed to escape after he became distracted and looked out of the window, jurors heard

She said: ‘He backed off and that’s when I decided to put my playsuit back on. He got up looked outside the window as if to make sure that no-one was there.’

She reported him to police later the same day. The driver admitted during his police interview that he had sex with the woman but insisted it was consensual, jurors heard.

Durrani, of Streatham, southwest London, denies one count of rape and one count of sexual assault.

Obama said cooperation was “the single best chance that we have” to save the planet as he and Xi Jinping formally entered their two nations into the Paris agreement.
“This is not a fight that any one country no matter how powerful can take alone,” Obama said of the pact. “Some day we may see this as the moment that we finally decided to save our planet.”

Xi, speaking through a translator, said he hoped the announcement would spur more countries to take action. “Our response to climate change bears on the future of our people and the wellbeing of mankind,” he said.

#AceNewsServices says #Britain is now becoming #Slaves to the “Slum Landlord” as this Government pushes up house prices for those that can afford it ,and allows rentals to remain unchecked. This brings in the #unscrupulous and #greedy landlords that see #profitb4people

Order Of Truth

slumllThe policies of the current government are forcing many to move into sub-standard private accommodation according to a new report issued by IPPR North (Institute for Public Policy and Research), a charitable think tank.

According to the government, housing benefit is costing £20 billion per year and is one of the biggest welfare spends (excluding pensions). However, £9.3 billion of that spend is paid to private landlords.

More and more poorer families and those on benefits are forced to rent in the private sector as the bedroom tax bites into the finances of households being unable to afford the cost of an additional bedroom.

Problems faced by low income renters in the private sector include the insecurity of the standard six month rental contract, and the unpredictable rise in rents. The cost of renting in the private sector is at an all-time high (according to housing charity Shelter), with the…
