Opinion: The Pope reads and echoes Billy Meier Spirit Teaching

September 18, 2020

ROME — Pope Francis said Wednesday that the earth, sea, and all creatures possess a “mystical capacity” to bring humanity to God and into communion with nature.

As many spiritual masters have taught us*, heaven, earth, sea, and every creature have an iconic capacity or mystical capacity to bring us back to the Creator and to communion with creation,” the pontiff wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

*direct reference to Billy Eduard Albert Meier, THE spiritual master

Also on Wednesday, Pope Francis once again lamented the negative effects of global warming, insisting that it would generate “many, many difficulties.”

“Today I was reading in the newspaper about those two great glaciers in Antarctica, near the Amundsen Sea: they are about to fall,” he said. “It will be terrible, because the sea level will rise and this will bring many, many difficulties and cause so much harm.”

“And why? Because of global warming, not caring for the environment, not caring for the common home,” the pope told pilgrims gathered in the Vatican’s San Damaso courtyard for his weekly general audience.

All forms of life are interconnected, and our health depends on that of the ecosystems that God created and entrusted to us to care for,” the pope stated. “Abusing them, on the other hand, is a grave sin that damages us, and harms us, and makes us sick.”

“Exploiting creation: this is the sin,” Francis said. “We believe that we are at the centre, claiming to occupy God’s place and so we ruin the harmony of creation, the harmony of God’s plan.”

“We become predators, forgetting our vocation as custodians of life,” he said. “Of course, we can and must work the earth so as to live and to develop. But work is not synonymous with exploitation, and it is always accompanied by care: ploughing and protecting, working and caring… This is our mission.”

“Our poorest brothers and sisters and our mother earth lament for the damage and injustice we have caused, and demand we take another course,” he said. “It demands of us a conversion, a change of path; taking care of the earth too, of creation.”

This is the second time in about a month, since the Pope used the term “the Creation”, referring to the Creational Universal Consciousness, and not a god or tin god.

Oh My GOTT p.365

GOTT 19:64

64) The main recommendation is love, and included in this is the love for the truth of the primal power of the life (Creation), love for the laws and recommendations of the primal power (Creation) as well as love for your others (love for the next one), love for all kinds of life (life forms), love for the appearance (nature), love for the real truth and love for the life.

GOTT on Overpopulation

GOTT 4:5

5) And as you create descendants, it shall be done in the measure of insight (rationality) so that the standard measure of the number of all peoples (humankind) does not get out of control in a very bad wise and result in immoderateness (overpopulation) and the world and its weathers, the appearance (nature) and all life on Earth do not suffer great and lasting damage (destruction of the environment/destruction of the climate/extinction of forms of life/wars/crimes, etc.); therefore, the recommendation of insight (rationality) and of control over extent is given for obedience (following) so that no calamity may come over you and your world; consequently, it is recommended that you keep yourselves within bounds (limits) and manage (monitor) the standard measure of the number of all peoples and that you undertake (carry out) a measurement (census) every certain number of years so that the measure of all inhabitants of Earth does not become too great and remains within the number of the maintainable (supportable) without leading to harm (529 million).

from GOTT. p. 255

130) And cultivate your land and the whole Earth without tormenting and destroying it, and be admonished to do this because otherwise it will raise itself up against you and bring you unweather, high waters, enormous storms, fire and drought, as well as dearths of fruits and other provision (food).

131) See that only good comes to you from Earth, as it will be and as it is due to you (as you are entitled to) when you strive for it; do at all times rightfully with your world so that no calamity comes (breaks in) over you from it for which you yourselves are to blame; consider that if calamity comes (breaks in) over you that you alone are to blame for it, even if most of you do not know it, because you do not care about the laws of condition (cause) and of decision (effect = cause and effect).

132) See the signs of your appearance (nature) and allow yourselves to be captivated (influenced) by them so that you recognise that the earth with its laws of its appearance (nature) will not submit to you, but that you must fall in line with it (integrate yourselves) in order to spend your existence (life) in togetherness with it, and to obtain (draw) the best gains (effects) from it.

133) Therefore consider: Whatever you do with your earth, it will never submit to you.

134) And be certain (knowing) that if you do not do rightfully with your world and with all people of your kind (human kind) then grievances (vexations) will come over you, such as great storms and high waters, and you will be oppressed (plagued) by locusts, by lice and frogs, as well as by scourges (plagues) and vermin and many kinds of life (life forms) and people of your kind (human beings) who change into deformed ones (mutated ones) for which you are to blame and spread torment; therefore do not be arrogant (vain) and do not commit outrages (misdemeanours) against the appearance (nature) or against the laws and recommendations of the wellspring of the love (Creation) so that no calamity comes over you.

Microplastics are everywhere, study finds

May 14, 2020

UPDATE: May 30, 2020

After a storm, microplastics in Sydney’s Cooks River increased 40 fold

UPDATE:  May 22, 2020

Scientists find first evidence of microplastics passing from insects to predators in rivers

A species of river bird is swallowing hundreds of plastic fibers every day via their insect prey, research by Cardiff University and the Greenpeace Research Laboratories at the University of Exeter has shown.

Dippers are also inadvertently feeding thousands of plastic fibers contained in insects to their nest-bound chicks during their development.

The aquatic songbirds depend on river insects for their food supply, so widespread contamination of insects by plastic means they cannot avoid this source of pollution.

This new study is the first to show clearly that microplastics—pieces of plastic debris under 5mm in size—are being passed through river food webs from insects to predators such as dippers. The research is published today in the journal Global Change Biology.

Microplastics are everywhere—including in our drinking water, table salt and in the air that we breathe. Having studied the scope of microplastics in a number of countries, researchers are worried.

We inhale microplastics

“When we inhale microplastics, the tiny particles can reach the lungs and digestive system. Nobody knows what this means for the human organism and our health, but as we are talking about a lifelong exposure, it’s a cause for concern,” says Genbo Xu.

There are no official guidelines for how much microplastic food may contain. Likewise, no studies have defined values for when certain sizes or amounts of microplastic particles can be hazardous for humans to ingest.

Half of water samples from Bay of Biscay contain microplastics

The scientific journal Marine Pollution Bulletin has just published “Microplastics in the Bay of Biscay: an overview,” a piece of work by the Materials+Technologies research group (GMT) of the Faculty of Engineering—Gipuzkoa. It is the first scientific paper that analyzes all the research studies conducted until now about the presence of microplastics in the Bay of Biscay. It includes the results obtained in various marine compartments (water bodies, marine sediments and biota) highlighting the limitations and challenges to knowledge that have been found.

Microplastics constitute an environmental problem of growing concern, and various studies have identified the Bay of Biscay as an area where marine litter builds up. The research that has now been published establishes considerable variability in the spatial and temporal distribution of microplastics confirming their presence in over 50% of the water and sediment samples collected for analysis purposes.

These are plastic particles measuring less than 5mm that are deposited in the seas and on the coasts as a result of the dumping of small-sized plastics used in certain products and applications (known as primary microplastics) or as a result of the breaking up of larger objects (secondary microplastics). Owing to the abundance of these particles in the marine environment, their origin, presence and influence on human health and species worldwide is being extensively investigated right now.

In terms of their nature, the polymers most found are polypropylene, polyethylene, polyester and polystyrene, which tally with the main plastics used worldwide. “The predominance of fragments and fibers in the results of the studies suggests that the microplastics in this region originate mainly from the breaking up of larger objects. However, the difficulty in comparing the various pieces of research owing to the different methodologies used in them is evident, so consensus needs to be reached on standardized methods for monitoring microplastics in the marine environment,” said the research group responsible for the study.

Alarming Levels Of Plastic Found In Children

September 20, 2019

Plastic Apocalypse

“Our study clearly shows that plastic ingredients, which are rising in production, are also showing up more and more in the body.”

The study, conducted by the German Environment Ministry and the Robert Koch Institute, found an alarming 97% of blood and urine samples from 2,500 children tested between 2014 and 2017 had traces of microplastics.

In at least 20% of the 2,500 children tested, microplastics were above safe government limits. Children from low-income regions were more susceptible to ingesting plastics than ones from the middle class and wealthy areas.

“It can not be that every fourth child between the ages of three and five is so heavily burdened with chemicals that long-term damage cannot be reliably ruled out,” said Hoffmann, adding that “the Federal Government must make every effort to protect people from harmful chemicals.”

OK, so I got lazy and didn’t include a few sentences for each study.  But you can figure it out.  None of it is good news.  Everything leads back to this: humans are destroying the environment as the consequence of overpopulation, and anyone who says otherwise is either lying or an idiot or both.

 

 

Watch the Water

April 10, 2018

“A large part of the freshwater ecosystems is potentially endangered by the high concentration of pharmaceuticals,”

A large number of drugs found in the environment—analgesics, antibiotics, anti-platelet agents, hormones, psychiatric drugs, anti-histamines—have been detected in nature at levels dangerous for wildlife.

Endocrine disruptors, for examples, have notoriously induced sex changes in fish and amphibians.

In other research presented at the conference, scientists found that the rapid expansion of sewage systems in large urban areas has sharply increased river pollution, because much of the effluence is not adequately treated.

“In 2000, sewage was a source of pollution in about 50 percent of the rivers in the world,” said Maryna Strokal, a scientist at Wageningen University & Research, in the Netherlands.

“By 2010, sewage was a source of pollution in almost all rivers worldwide.”

Antibiotics and chemicals waste is also driving the evolution of drug-resistant bacteria, UN Environment warned in a study in December.

Between 70 and 80 percent of all antibiotics consumed by humans and farm animals—totalling thousands of tonnes—find their way into natural environments, the UN agency said in a report.

Damn Dams risk fish extinction in U.S.

February 9, 2018

Dams drive local extinction risk of native fish in the southern United States, according to a study by Florida International University.

The high number of dams built close to each other in the southeast significantly limits where fish can move throughout their lives, driving the risk of extinction for native fish in some areas, according to a study led by FIU ecologist John Kominoski. In the southwest, dams and climate change interact to drive the risk of native fish extinction in some areas. …The restriction of water flows in rivers and streams is proving to be a real problem for fish.

The southern U.S. has experienced unprecedented population growth driving up water demands.

Salmon and Orcas sick of Man Made Pesticides

January 13, 2018

US review shows pesticides harm threatened salmon, whales

Federal scientists have determined that a family of widely used pesticides poses a threat to dozens of endangered and threatened species, including Pacific salmon, Atlantic sturgeon and Puget Sound orcas.

The National Marine Fisheries Service issued its new biological opinion on three organophosphate pesticides—chlorpyrifos, diazinon and malathion—after a yearslong court fight by environmental groups. At the urging of pesticide manufacturers, the Trump administration had sought a two-year delay of a court-ordered deadline to issue the findings by the end of 2017, but it was unsuccessful.

The exhaustive 3,700-page federal review , dated Dec. 29, concludes that chlorpyrifos and malathion jeopardize 38 out of the 77 species under the jurisdiction of the fisheries service and that diazinon was found to jeopardize 25 of the listed species.

Organophosphorus gas was originally developed as a chemical weapon before World War II. Dow Chemical, based in Midland, Michigan, has been selling chlorpyrifos for spraying on citrus fruits, apples, cherries and other crops since the 1960s. It is among the most widely used agricultural pesticides in the United States, with Dow selling about 5 million pounds (2.3 million kilograms) domestically each year.

Studies have shown for years that even low levels of pesticides running off into streams and rivers can impair the growth, swimming ability and reproductive systems of salmon. Potentially harmful levels of the toxins then build up in the bodies of orcas, also known as killer whales, that eat salmon.

“Salmon have been waiting four decades for relief from toxic pesticides in many of our rivers,” said Glen Spain, the northwest regional director of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations. “The agencies should do their job.”
