‘MELTING GLACIERS MAKE MORE SALMON RIVERS: Glaciers in the Pacific Northwest of USA and Canada are melting and turning into streams of flowing fresh water. Scientists from the University of Birmingham have studied some of these new rivers and found salmon had colonised them when migrating from the ocean into rivers in order to spawn. These scientists have joined with Kara Pitman, a geomorphologist at Simon Fraser University, and colleagues from USA and Switzerland to estimate how much extra salmon habitat will become available if 315 of the thousands of glaciers in the Pacific Northwest USA and Canada melt according to current climate change models. They estimated a potential increase in rivers of 6,150 km. This is almost the equivalent of the length of the Mississippi River. Taking into account that salmon need pristine rivers of cool flowing water with a less than 10% incline the researchers estimated the salmon habitat in this region would increase by 27%. Kara Pitman commented: “Once conditions stabilise in the newly-formed streams, salmon can colonise these areas quite quickly. It’s a common misconception that all salmon return home to the streams they were born in. Most do, but some individuals will stray — migrating into new streams to spawn and, if conditions are favourable, the population can increase rapidly”. Alexander Milner a river ecologist at the University of Birmingham, explained: “Colonization by salmon can occur relatively quickly after glacial retreat creates favourable spawning habitat in the new stream. For example, Stonefly Creek was colonised within 10 years by pink salmon that grew rapidly to more than 5,000 spawners. Other species also colonised including Coho and Sockeye salmon, especially where a lake is associated with the stream”. Greg Knox, of SkeenaWild Conservation Trust, a salmon conservation organisation, commented: “It shows you how adaptive and resilient salmon are”.

ED. COM. Congrats folks you have made proper use of the term “adaptive”. Adaptation is the inbuilt ability to cope with changes in the environment, and the real history of the world tells us salmon have done this in the past and are doing it again as the environment changes.
After Noah’s Flood the surface of the earth was completely changed and new land masses, complete with new rivers, were formed. Salmon responding to an inbuilt need to spawn in freshwater found these rivers and colonised them. Most salmon return to their river of origin, but as new rivers formed as a result of earth movements and changing rainfall patterns, salmon and other living things found them and colonised them. The ice age would have devastated the salmon population as many rivers were turned to uninhabitable glaciers. Glaciers should not be romanticised because they make picturesque landscape paintings and photos. They are destructive and barren masses of ice which devastate the landscape. As this study shows, melting glaciers allow a landscape to come back to life and provide habitat for many living things. Some very large environmental changes have occurred since the world began, and all things currently alive, plant or animal, have coped with them or died out, but none have evolved.
“Climate change” and “melting glaciers” have been used as scare stories over the last couple of decades, but as this study shows, these changes can be for good.’https://mailchi.mp/creationresearch.net/creation-research-news-email-update-15th-december-2021?e=ce21bf0337
Here in Australia we have some ‘Brilliant news: Senator Claire Chandler has announced she will be introducing a private members bill to get sex reintroduced into the Sex Discrimination Act. Staggeringly, the definitions of male and female were removed in 2013 leaving the Sex Discrimination Act impotent in promoting or protecting biological sex.
Disappointingly, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Minister for Women, Marise Payne, have refused to engage on this issue; they have ignored the pleas of thousands of Australians to reinstate legislation to protect girls and women from discrimination and disadvantage in sport, refuges, changerooms, prisons and a myriad of other female services and spaces.
Senator Claire Chandler is about to change all of that. The PM, the Minister for Women, and every other federal politician’s position on this issue will be exposed.
In an email sent out to supporters, Chandler announced her intention to legalise women’s rights.
For the past 18 months, you and I have been calling on Sport Australia to withdraw their misguided “inclusion” guidelines and acknowledge the importance of single-sex women’s sport.
Australians have had enough of ideologically driven bureaucrats claiming that women’s sport should be based on gender identity and not biological reality.
Our common sense position is backed by international sporting bodies, leading scientists from around the world, female athletes, parents, and coaches – and thousands of Australians like you who have signed my petition.
With your support, I’ve put a mountain of evidence in front of Sport Australia and the parliament, demonstrating unequivocally that it is neither fair nor safe for biological males to be allowed to compete against women.
Our concerns and the evidence have been ignored.
Sport Australia has made it clear they intend to ignore the latest research and that they will not, under any circumstances, change their guidelines unless the law changes.
So today, I am letting you know that I am drafting a bill to protect single-sex sport for women and girls in Australia.
I have started a process to amend the Sex Discrimination Act 1984, to ensure that women’s single-sex sport will once again be celebrated and encouraged in Australia.
The Sex Discrimination Act was always intended to provide for single-sex sport. But after changes made in 2013 by the former Labor Government, it’s now being used as a weapon to convince sporting organisations that they must base participation in sport on gender identity rather than sex – or risk being in breach of the law.
The senator is committed to ensuring that all sporting clubs have the legal right to rule that female sporting categories are for women and girls only. She will eliminate loopholes and work on ways to ensure transgender athletes can compete in a fair and safe way that does not put females at risk.
The media will not doubt either ignore or misrepresent the intentions of this bill. You can be sure that Coalition MPs and the opposition will be running scared, as they will either have to come out in support of the protection of women and girls, or risk being exposed as political ideologues if they oppose it.
Well done Senator Chandler, you have our whole-hearted support and commitment to work with you until the job is done.’https://www.binary.org.au/game_on?utm_campaign=2021_11_15_weekly_enews&utm_medium=email&utm_source=binary
All trials are not covered by the media equally as they often depend on the ethnicity of the perpetrator. ‘You surely can’t have missed the wall to wall coverage of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial where the teenager is accused of killing two Kenosha rioters and wounding a third when he feared they would kill him.
The Wisconsin National Guard has been called out in case he is found to be innocent of the charges filed against him and the thugs have a tantrum and riot again.
Here is just one of many stories in the mainstream media on the sensational trial.
But there is another trial beginning tomorrow in Dallas, Texas and I am guessing (maybe I will be wrong!) that unless you live in Texas (or read conservative news) the media will be silent when the infamous Billy Chemirmir, a Kenyan we permitted to live among us, will go on trial to face the first of many murder charges against him.
Chemirmir didn’t use a big scary gun as did Rittenhouse to protect himself, in fact he used pillows to allegedly smother at least 18 defenseless senior citizens, all but one were women, in order to steal their jewelry and other valuables.
For more, see Evil Roaming.
Also, see this series from NBC 5 in Dallas (hope springs eternal that NBC will follow the trial as closely as every outlet has followed the Rittenhouse trial).’https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2021/11/14/a-tale-of-two-trials/
Yes, now they want your children! ‘Australian children aged between five and 11 will likely be able to be vaccinated against Covid-19 from early next year.
The head of the country’s vaccine rollout, Lieutenant-General John Frewen, told Nine Newspapers the scheme to protect young children will ramp up in late January if the vaccine is approved by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation and the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
The children’s Pfizer vaccine is slightly different compared to the one administered to those over 12. The vaccine has 10 micrograms in each shot, compared to 30 in the adult dose.
General Frewen told Nine Newspapers Australia had secured more than five million doses of the vaccine.
“We have already secured Pfizer five to 11 vials as part of our booster contract as a contingency if other vials were required. We have actually purchased sufficient supply for doses and boosters down to infants,” he said.
“While it is a matter for the TGA and ATAGI [to approve the jabs], once US data is available and approvals are given, this could be for commencement at the start of January but this will depend on the independent assessment processes.
“So when’s the earliest time this happens? You know, if it’s happening by the end of January, then I think things are going at a good speed.”’https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/health-problems/australian-children-aged-between-five-and-11-will-be-able-to-get-vaccinated-from-january/news-story/c546344f45a76c23ec7289b9ae8cff0e
This China Wuhan virus and the fast tracked vaccines are all part of the Great Reset; as far as I am concerned. Our governments are complicit in this treasonous experiment and should be tried as such. However, we won’t hold our breath for any justice.
Not surprisingly, ‘Facebook, Twitter and other big tech companies actually want standardized Internet speech regulations. In fact, Facebook has been spending millions of dollars on ads that openly call for more government regulation of speech on the Internet. You can view an example of what I am talking about right here. At first glance, it may seem odd that Facebook wants more government regulation of the tech industry, but it actually makes perfect sense. If the federal government is the one making the rules, Facebook and the other big tech companies can legally censor you into oblivion without ever having to worry about any legal consequences. And then because all other social media platforms in existence will have to follow the exact same rules, there will be nowhere else for you to turn. There won’t be any “free speech alternatives” to Facebook and Twitter, because all of those “alternatives” will be forced to apply the same speech standards that Facebook and Twitter and applying.’http://endoftheamericandream.com/
One could NEVER ask for someone’s medical records for HIV, Hepatitis or some sexually transmitted disease! Yet, providing proof of receiving the Wuhan Flu vaccine is mandated in California and other WOKE states. Now, ‘An In-N-Out in Contra Costa County, California, has been shut down permanently for refusing to ask patrons for proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within three days of dining in.
The fast-food branch was told to close indefinitely on Tuesday according to The Hill.
“The Pleasant Hill In-N-Out location received four citations in recent weeks and fines totaling $1,750, all for the same health order violation, before today’s action,” Contra Costa Environmental Health (CCEH) said in a statement.
The location was served with a notice of violation on Oct. 5, and subsequently fined $250 on Oct. 14 and $500 on Oct. 19, a spokesperson for Contra Costa County’s health department told SFGate, adding that the In-N-Out faced “repeated complaints from members of the public.”
Arnie Wensinger, chief legal & business officer for the In-N-Out chain, said that the store “properly and clearly” posted signs that outlined the vaccination requirements for indoor diners, but said that the store refused to act as “the vaccination police for any government.”
“It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason,” added Wensinger.
As of Sept. 22, restaurants, gyms, and some indoor businesses operating in Contra Costa County were required to check vaccine records and the photo ID of customers dining indoors.’https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/california-in-n-out-shut-down-permanently-for-refusing-to-check-customers-vaccination-status_4071086.html?utm_source=newsnoe&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2021-10-27-2&mktids=8fad7d3c419cbc705c54928a13445e7d&est=KtWoqLk3DW3iykoKP1Xpk1wFByDKtp%2Br5z1OhqixbDchn%2FjrlceFgYoHZyIds4ZoPg%3D%3D
‘A new study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology proves what we “conspiracy theorists” have been saying all along about the COVID-19 shots: They cause symptoms leading to COVID-19 diagnoses rather than prevent them. The study, “Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States,” was conducted by S. V. Subramanian, who is affiliated with Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, and also the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The study looked at data from 68 countries and 2947 counties in the U.S. They used COVID-19 data provided by the Our World in Data for cross-country analysis, available as of September 3, 2021. For the county-level analysis in the US, they utilized the White House COVID-19 Team data, available as of September 2, 2021. Comparing countries with various rates of percentages of their population fully vaccinated for COVID-19, they found that “countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.” Likewise, in the U.S. the counties with the highest vaccination rates have the highest incidents of COVID-19 cases. COVID-19 vaccines not only offer no benefits, they are killing and injuring people, which is why so many dissenting doctors and scientists today call them “bioweapons.”‘https://vaccineimpact.com/
