The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World has long been a gold standard for recording every nook and cranny of our precious Earth in painstaking detail. However, they are now scrambling to fix the latest edition of the atlas after scientists found that it misrepresented the global warming effects around Greenland. According to the Times Atlas, Greenland has lost 15% of its ice cover over the last fifteen years. That would make it decreasing at a staggering 1% per year, meaning in just 85 more years at that rate, it would be gone completely.
Scientists and climatologists were quick to point out that while global warming and climate change are something that deserves attention, the real figure for Greenland’s loss of ice cover is somewhere around 0.1% over the last fifteen years. While that is still a significant figure in the history of the Earth, it is nowhere nearly as damning as the figures represented by the Times Atlas.
The real interesting part is it is kind of hard for the Times to sell the idea that this was just an accidental misprint when they represented these figures not only in facts in the atlas, but also on the map itself.
Check out all the facts here. The comparison of Greenland’s ice cover can be viewed below:
NASA’s detailed rebuttal to all of the comet Elenin conspiracy theories was designed to lay these things to rest, but a look around the web quickly shows that not everyone is buying it. This new video, fresh from today, shows some discrepancies with the earlier timeline for the Elenin alignments and suggests that the supposed doomsday might be earlier than originally thought. Of course, this is just one take in a sea of theories. Other amateurs out there say the threat is over because the comet has already disintegrated ahead of schedule.
The Bilderberg Group is a frequent target of conspiracy theorists in our current era, usually related to the circumstances surrounding the proposed New World Order. It’s surprising how many people are completely unaware of this group of super-elitists that meet under the shroud of almost impenetrable secrecy once a year to supposedly set the policies that will guide the world for the upcoming year and years.
The Bilderberg Group acquired its name from the Hotel de Bilderberg where it held its first meeting in 1954. The group was initially formed to bridge differences between Europe and North American sentiments following the conclusion of World War II. In the history books of Americans, the United States is portrayed as a hero for its role in ending the conflict, but this is just a by-product of the patriotism and disinformation that the U.S. government is now famous for. The reality was that there was a tremendous amount of anti-American sentiment existing in Western Europe after World War II that stemmed from many different sources. The final blows of the war didn’t help things either. The United States’ decision to unleash atomic bombs on Japan left most of our European allies unsure about America’s role as a world superpower in the years following. The first Bilderberg meeting was held to unite leaders and persons of influence from Europe and America to forge a plan to promote what is known as Atlanticism. That refers to the Atlantic Ocean, of course, which separates the Americas from Europe. The idea was to boost a sense of unity between the Americas and Europe, not just at a social level, but at all levels, including politics, economics, and military defense tactics. It could be said simply that this was the birth of the concept of the New World Order. Continue reading The Bilderberg Group→
