COP 26 launches GFANZ
Technocracy is moving right along with the central banks and private finance, which is well explained by researchers who have been investigating the powers behind these plans and Agenda 2030, so Net Zero is the new buzzword. Whitney Webb introduces this roundtable with a review of GFANZ https://www.gfanzero.com/ launched in Glasgow at COP 26. In the video they explain the developments since the Rio Summit in 1992 when they launched Agenda 21 for the next century. https://rokfin.com/post/59836/Looking-Behind-the-COP26-Propaganda-with-Cory-Morningstar–Iain-Davis
The actor Greta Thunberg has been well researched by Cory Morningstar in her expose in https://www.theartofannihilation.com/ She has won people’s hearts to her cause thanks to mainstream media and influential people around her. This is a good summary on the state of affairs in our world from that website:
FROM THE NON-PROFIT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX WITH LOVE. THE ART OF ANNIHILATION.
The art of propaganda has been nothing less than brilliant. The deceit is so thick – you need a knife to cut through it. The corruption and greed so deep you need wings to stay above it and thigh high boots to wade through it. An alluring tapestry of luminous lies, interwoven with finely textured deception and silk-like corruption – as smooth and seductive as freshly churned butter. The pursuit of man’s mind by way of domination has been the greatest and most successful experiment – the manipulation of man’s mind has resulted in a massive erosion of empathy, which has allowed status quo “business as usual” to continue uninterrupted with little resistance. Capitalism effectively bred a contempt for our Earth that multiplied like a virus. The pollution of mind mutated into narcissism with inflicted self-hatred to form a suicidal Molotov cocktail. Those who have succumbed now hold hands in a circle and taunt the very planet that gives us life. The ugly side of humanity continues to violently pierce our Earth Mother with drills and slash her beautiful skin with razors. She is losing breath. She is dying. Yet, when she lashes back, it will be with an Armageddon deathblow against which our own actions will resemble childish prattle. And perhaps not until this time will global society finally recognize that our shared purpose was not to compete with one another and claim dominance and superiority over our Earth Mother – but rather our role was to protect, defend and nurture. The human family – under the arm of its EuroAmerican “big brother” – will have finally succeeded in conquering our shared planet, only to find that we have destroyed ourselves. – Cory Morningstar, excerpt from part II of the exposé, The 2º Death Dance – The 1º Cover-up
From the Copenhagen COP 15 https://www.theartofannihilation.com/the-most-important-cop-briefings-that-no-one-ever-heard-truth-lies-racism-omnicide/ Later came the schoolgirl Greta, sitting with her protest sign… The investigative journalist Cory Morningstar who also has a website called https://www.wrongkindofgreen.org/2019/09/17/the-manufacturing-of-greta-thunberg-for-consent-they-mean-business-volume-ii-act-iv/ The piece below is taken from her book:
The manufacturing of Greta Thunberg – for consent: the political economy of the non-profit industrial complex
“We are introduced to the not-so accidental phenomena of Greta Thunberg, the current child prodigy and face of the youth climate change movement. The “climate change is real” message is reframed for public consumption and rolled out at an international level, using Greta and her global platform to “sound the alarm” on climate change.
This climate emergency is likened to a “house on fire”, while urging the public to be serious, patriotic, empathetic and, of course, nonviolent. Not one sentence of the new strategy mentions the horrific impact militarism has on climate change.
The New Climate Economy being pushed by groups like Extinction Rebellion merely repackage our oppression into emergency mode. This urgency becomes global so that governments, NGOs and corporations will all direct immediate funding towards unlocking trillions of capital needed to save capitalism by further funding the new green imperialism.
Today’s youth are used and molded into market solutions to insulate a global elite. Celebrity-sponsored activism seeks to build a new industry in which NGOs, the media and corporate powers collude to get people to support the very industries we should be erasing from the planet.
The planet’s most powerful capitalists lie behind these “youth-led” movements for climate change, helping to manufacture consent for the “fourth industrial revolution” in an attempt to quell resistance to industrial civilisation.”

Our Money – Our Choice
The recent decision by the government to override Lancashire County Council’s decision to deny planning permission for fracking on the Fylde had an effect on the community outside of the dreadful environmental issues. As a result of the decision made by the government Lancashire County Council will be asked to contribute to the costs of the enquiry held earlier this year. There is speculation that the amount will be in the region of £330,000. Given the authority’s already straitened circumstances after having to deal with the austerity measures of successive governments, this is money that the County Council can ill afford.
The government’s action has effectively added insult to injury in that the money that the Council is expected to pay out in costs could far better have been spent on the people of Lancashire. One instance immediately springs to mind, is that the money could have been spent on improving flood defences. Flooding in some areas of the county has been the worst in the country. Extreme weather conditions have been the cause of the flooding and the extreme weather conditions are occurring because of climate destabilisation caused by the burning of fossil fuels. Shale gas is a fossil fuel and the burning of it will only increase climate destabilisation and consequent flooding. The irony of the situation is that the government is effectively making the council pay out money so that shale gas companies can further endanger the lives and properties of people living in Lancashire. Are we happy that our money, the money essentially belonging to the people of Lancashire, is spent in such a way? Most of us would undoubtedly like the money to be spent in a more constructive way.
Money and the making of it is, of course, the driving force behind the industry. Are we, the people, happy that certain banks are investing our money in the shale gas industry and therefore further encouraging the development of fracking? Next week, on Friday, 28th October 2016, supporters of KELFF (Keep East Lancashire Frack Free) will be in Rawtenstall, appropriately enough in Bank Street, speaking to members of the public about the dangers of fracking. They will be handing out literature and asking people to consider with whom they bank. For instance, it is well known that Barclays Bank owns a 97% share of the gas company Third Energy which is the company currently trying to establish fracking in North Yorkshire. Taking the funding away from the fracking companies is one way of ensuring that fracking is not begun in Lancashire or anywhere else.
Francis Egan, the CEO of Cuadrilla, the company hoping to start drilling at the site on the Fylde, has been quoted as saying that the decision to approve fracking in Lancashire was ‘perfectly democratic’ although the reasoning behind his statement is not apparent. The word democracy comes from the Greek : “δημοκρατία” and in Greek means the ‘rule of the commoners’. A duty to promote democracy is fundamental to our education system and forms part of our ‘British Values’. Through the County Council the people, the commoners, had their say and they said that they did not want fracking in the County. Through local councils, petitions, blogs and websites the people are continuing to have their say. They are saying that they do not want fracking in Lancashire, in the UK or anywhere in the world and their voices are in the majority. Therefore, Francis Egan saying that the decision was democratic is untenable. More importantly, overriding the County Council does not say much for the government’s idea of democracy and begs the question as to what form of democracy is being taught in our schools and colleges.
However, we are not defeated. The one thing the people can do is decide where and how their money is spent. Come along to the KELFF stall on Friday 28th October, 2016 between 11.30am and 1.30pm and talk about the measures we can take to carry on the fight against fracking.
If you are unable to join us on Friday 28th October 2016, you may be interested in coming along to Hippings Vale Community Centre, Harvey Street in Oswaldtwistle at 3.00pm on Sunday 6th November 2016. There will be a film called Groundswell Rising and talk by the filmmaker Mark Lichty from Pennsylvania about Fracking – introduced by Gayzer Frackman and time for Q and A’s.
Hope you can join us and please share.

Paris-COP21 – the alternative
Many environmental activists from around the world are here in Paris to mark this 21st round of Conference of the Parties, sponsored mainly by the fossil fuel lobby. We do not have hopes that they will change from their agenda of business as usual. This is a growing movement of grassroots groups who will be taking action.
D12 Red Lines happened after all the recent negotiations with police,
because thousands of people were determined to take part in the protest, due to not enough being done by politicians after 21 years of meeting on this subject.
During the week many groups representing indigenous communities who were the most affected by the extractive fossil fuel industries demonstrated their frustrations with governmental processes and were removed from the Solutions conference centre by security men. Even groups like 350.org and journalists were removed from the area for questioning the status quo!
It is very apparent that mainstream media is not reporting any dissenting voices, so it is important that the voices of communities that want to protect the land are heard.
It is good that alternative media are documenting the people’s version of what is happening in Paris alongside the ‘official’ media, which includes the New Internationist and Democracy Now.
Most importantly is that the movement for global justice and climate is connecting and what is becoming clear is that it is system change that’s needed, which makes all people inclusive and that much must be done to protect the most vulnerable. We all live on this planet and will all suffer from the consequences of inaction!
We must not stand by and let this destruction continue, it is time for change!
From Gill in Manchester who wrote: Climate change affects every single person and species on this Planet Earth. I pledge on behalf of myself, my children, my grandchildren and every other person on this planet that I will do my best to find the perfect solution to us all, animal, vegetable and human, living in peace. By living in peace then our climate and our planet will be peaceful. Peace is the solution. Peace Be With You.
Thank you Gill, Bless you.
So Be It
