Sunken Antarctic ship now 5-kilometer oil slick

Al Gore’s self-touted, mouse size carbon footprint has just developed elephantitis.

MS Explorer, the “legendary polar expedition ship” owned by his pal G.A.P. Adventures CEO Bruce Poon Tip, which sank last week in the Antarctic has left a garguntan carbon foot on the ocean floor.  And it’s a carbon footprint that’s harmful to penguins and other wildlife.

Little would have been known about the damage to the Antarctic’s fragile eco system from the sunken 75-metre vessel were it not for a team of Chilean scientists who sussed out the damage in its aftermath and reported their findings.

The Chilean scientists told the daily La Tercera that fuel from the eco cruise ship is now a five-kilometer long slick.  The MS Explorer, star of the eco warrior, was powered by diesel.  And while diesel is less polluting than crude oil, it still left a highly toxic environmental mess that could directly affect seals, sea lions, and other animals that inhabit the area.

Al Gore buddy owner of sunken ship that left huge carbon footprint on Antarctic Ocean floor

You’d never read this in the mainstream media:  The owner of MS Explorer that sank, leaving a huge carbon footprint at the bottom of the Antarctic Ocean Friday is an acolyte of teensy-weensy carbon footprint crusader Al Gore.

G.A.P. Adventures CEO and Explorer owner, Bruce Poon Tip and Gore have similar ideals, “filling their schedules with speaking engagements on environmental change to educate global audiences.”  And that’s straight off of www.gapadventures.com.  In fact, as recently as last April, both Poon Tip and Gore gave presentations at the Green Living Show in Toronto.

Benazir Bhutto can identify jihadist carry bomb-strapped child?

Given the unbridled ambitions of Benazir Bhutto to reclaim power in Pakistan, do investigators in Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party have any credibility in their statement that the bomb intended to kill their leader was strapped to a one-year-old child?

CBS portrays Omar Khadr as “obedient son”

Although the Globe & Mail called new footage in a 12-minute 60 Minutes segment “shocking new footage of a Canadian terrorism suspect allegedly building bomb timers and planting land mines when he was a 15-year-old militant hoping to take on American soldiers in Afghanistan,” a November 18 CBS News cast shows Canada’s infamous Khadr family in a mostly sympathetic light.

Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani16 November 2007: Earlier this year, a multi-million dollar counterfeit clothing ring based in New York City with its tentacles reaching into various states and internationally was busted by federal authorities after a lengthy investigation. Investigation revealed that at least three of those arrested have definitive ties to the terrorist organization Jamaat ul Fuqra and its front group, the Muslims of the Americas, led by Pakistani terrorist Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani. The latest action in this case occurred this week. On Wednesday, 14 November 2007, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson sentenced Ronald Roundtree, 51, a member of the Muslims of the Americas camp in Virginia to 21 months in federal prison for his role in a multi-state, multi-million dollar counterfeiting ring.

“We are in the blackest of black darkness here” Bangladeshi journalist tells Canada Free Press

image“We are here in the blackest black of darkness and God only knows what’s coming our way next,” Bangladeshi journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury told Canada Free Press (CFP) in a static-charged telephone interview a few minutes ago.

  “How many are dead?  There are many more dead than the 500 reported by the Bangladesh government,” Choudhury said.  “Untold thousands of people are still missing and that is one reason the fatalities cannot be accurately reported.”

Doing business in a country that jails millions of dissidents

American companies assisting Chinese government oppression can always fall back on corporate PR to downplay their roles.

When the news hit that Yahoo was settling a legal dispute with the families of two Chinese dissidents, columnists began trying to defend Yahoo by pointing out that the company isn’t the only Judas in the corporate crowd trucking with Communist China.

Al Qaeda would welcome Internet takeover by UN

UN Control of the Internet
Even as UN delegates meet to take control of the Internet in yet another Rio de Janeiro beach conference Nov. 12-15, Mike Smith, new UN counter-terrorism chief is calling the Internet as it exists: a threat.

In other words, all signs are GO for the UNs’ long coveted takeover of the only thing still working, the Worldwide Internet.

If this sounds alarmist, remember that the world’s largest bureaucracy is already well on its way to take over Mother Earth’s seven seas with only petitions circulating on the Net offering faint hope that Congress will not ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty.

Same Hong Kong hospital where SARS originated has highest rate of “Superbug”-infected infants

Kwong Wah Hospital in Hong Kong already had 33 “superbug”-infected infants by the time Issue No. 921 of Next Magazine reported that six babies had contracted the “superbug” in its November 1 issue.
 
Like the scenes out of horror movie Outbreak coming true, Staphylococcus aureus (“Golden Grapes bacteria”) is on the loose in some world hospitals and is making the trek to community schools.  But Kwong Wah, with the highest rate of infant infection among all the hospitals in Hong Kong, remains off the world radar screen. Next Magazine cites the cause as Kwong Wah Hospital’s location.  It happens to be located in a district much easier for Mainland Chinese pregnant female “tourists” to be admitted under “emergency” to deliver “born-in-Hong Kong” babies.  Having babies there helps qualify them for future residence in Hong Kong, the magazine reports.

Canada Free Press makes it to most popular top 100 Conservative websites

Jim Whelan

Jim Whelan, aka, “The Cowboy” astride the form of transportation Al Gore wishes on the rest of us.

Although it was revealed by Rachel Alexander of Intellectual Conservatives.com on July 30, I didn’t now until last night: Canada Free Press (CFP) is ranked high among the most popular 100 conservative political websites and blogs for 2007.

  Indeed as number 47, CFP is among the 50 most popular conservative websites and blogs.

  It was a Google Alert on one of those just-can’t-sleep nights that clued me in to the impressive statistics.

If I hadn’t read another website owner crowing about their vaunted position earlier in the evening, I may never have clicked on to the early morning Google Alert.

  Having clicked on and thinking that I must have been dreaming, I plugged in the coffee percolator.  With fresh java on hand, I returned for a second look at the computer screen.

Lech Walesa’s New Heart

Warsaw, Poland: November 7 used to be celebrated in the then Communist countries, the Soviet Union in particular, as “The Revolution Day”. Not any more now, save for the Russian hard-core Communists longing for the “glorious” past. On that day, in 1981, straight from a reception at the Soviet Embassy in Warsaw, the late Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski, a top CIA agent in Poland, walked out to “disappear” and soon he and his family safely landed in the United States.

A&E kills the dreams of handicapped youngsters by pulling bounty hunter Dog off air

The current tempest in which Duane “Dog” Chapman is immersed captures him on tape using inappropriate—and yes, racist slurs.

It is wrong to resort to that kind of language no matter the provocation, something Chapman admits.

A&E moved with lightning speed to suspend, indefinitely, his reality TV show.

But lost in this latest chapter is what Duane Chapman the man really is: generous to a fault and an inspiration to people who rarely find it elsewhere.

Downgrade Christmas in Britain-and that’s just for starters

The land that spawned the author of The Christmas Carol has a Labour think tank that wants to downgrade Christmas.

“Christmas should be downgraded in favor of festivals from other religions to improve race relations, says an explosive report.” (Daily Mail, Nov. 1, 2007).

The downgrading Christmas report orginates not from any old think tank but from Labour’s favorite.
