Environmental Rules Being Rolled Back in the US

58 views•Published on Sep 16, 2019

In the Science Revolution, Thom Hartmann covers the Trump administration trying to save us from the tyranny of efficient lightbulbs, with environmental rules being rolled back.

Also, author, Tim Wise joins Thom to talk about big AG and its effects on climate change. In our GBU segment,  the  Good is Ireland and what they're doing to help the climate and there is a very very ugly killer in the Mohave Desert, not found yet - we'll be talking about.

Plus, our new Geeky Science segment is inspired by Thom's indoor cat, Kedi, getting loose outdoors, and what he did.

Click the time to jump to a segment:
0:37 Energy Light Bulbs
3:15 Is Big Agriculture Destroying the Planet?
13:03 The Good, the Bad and the Very, Very Ugly
14:57 Geeky Science
16:08 Science Fact of the Week

The Trump administration in the US continues to roll back environmental protections, this time on energy-efficient light bulbs. Is this going to help destroy civilization for profits?

With special guest Tim A. Wise

Is big agriculture the biggest obstacle to solving climate change? Chemical intensive agriculture is kicking our planet and actually contributing to world hunger.

The deforestation in Brazil is contributing to CO2.

Why is the US federal government promoting the industrializing of land and pushing the same in other countries? Small scale farmers around the world are being pushed to increase in size and use chemicals produced in the US. Seed companies want farmers to not save seeds for the next year but buy fresh seed every year. There is nothing climate-smart or sustainable about that.

Timothy A. Wise joined Thom to explain the policies and what is going wrong.

The Good - Ireland Planting Trees
The Bad - Broadcast News
The Ugly - The Killer of 42 Wild Burros

To crows chase cats? They do at the Hartmann residence. And what of bird sounds and squirrels?

According to scientists at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information - July 2019 was the hottest month on record for the planet. The average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees F above the 20th-century average, making it the hottest July in the 140-year record. The previous hottest month on record was July 2016. Nine of the 10 hottest Julys have occurred since 2005 -- with the last five years ranking as the five hottest. Not surprising - There is also record-low sea ice. Average Arctic sea ice set a record low for July, running 19.8% below average -- surpassing the previous historic low of July 2012.

They Discovered Something on Mars and Phobos that Cannot Be Explained ..11,924 views

The 5th Kind
Premiered 19 hours ago
The now dubbed “Phobos monolith” is a large object on the surface of Mars's moon “Phobos”. The giant structure stands 90 meters tall. Only 3 meters less than that of the Statue of Liberty Monument in New York. 

First discovered by “Efrain Palermo” who noticed the distinct shadow of the anomaly while analysing images taken from the “Mars Global Surveyor orbiter” lanched in November 1996. This peculiar and solitary large rock was also confirmed by “Lan Fleming”, an imaging sub-contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. Also Noting the possibility that the monolith is artificial in nature.

Along with the mysterious Monolith photographed on the Martian moon “Phobos”.. A similar looking structure can also be seen upon the surface of Mars...

How Many Galaxies Are in the Universe?

A galaxy contains billions of stars, held together by gravity. Within each galaxy, there are planetary systems, like the Earth and its neighbor planets within the Milky Way. But ours is just one galaxy in an astronomical sea of stars reaching farther than the most powerful telescopes can see. We will probably never know just how many galaxies exist, but 3-D modeling by the Hubble Space Telescope over 20 years has come up with a new estimate, published in The Astronomical Journal. In 2016, astronomers studied computer-enhanced deep space images and determined that there are probably around two trillion galaxies in the universe , far more than the previous estimate of between 100 and 200 billion galaxies.

Galaxies far, far away:

֍ The landmark Hubble Deep Field imaging of the mid-1990s gave scientists their first analysis of galaxies, and Hubble's Ultra Deep Field in 2004 added a plethora of faint galaxies, leading to an estimate of 200 billion galaxies.

֍ The newest analysis of deep-space images from Hubble converted the images into 3-D. Using mathematical models, scientists were able to infer the existence of galaxies that current telescopes cannot see.

֍ “It boggles the mind that over 90 percent of the galaxies in the universe have yet to be studied,” the University of Nottingham astronomers wrote. “Who knows what interesting properties we will find ... with the next generation of telescopes?”

Is the Speed of Sound Constant?

The speed of light is a constant, always traveling at the rate of 186,000 miles (300,000 km) per second. The speed of sound, on the other hand, is much more fickle. For example, sound waves move at 761.2 miles per hour (1,225 km/h) at sea level when the air temperature is 59 degrees F (15 degrees C).

However, heat up the air and they move faster; cool the air, and they slow down.

That's why breaking the sound barrier high in the sky is relatively easy: Temperatures are colder, so a lower speed will do the job.

Interestingly, sound moves very quickly under water, where the molecules are much denser than they are in the air. Their density means that they bump into one another more quickly, which is how sound travels. Sound travels through water at approximately 4,856 feet per second (1,480 meters/sec) -- more than four times faster than its speed through the 💨 air. But because the molecules are denser in water, sound needs more energy (ie. loudness) -- to get moving. That's why faint sounds can't be heard under water like they can above it.

Sounds interesting:

► Sound doesn't exist in space because there aren't any molecules for it to travel through.
► The greatest sound ever recorded 💥 was the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in 1883. The explosion could be heard 3,000 miles (4,828 km) away.

► A whip's snap is the sound of the tip breaking the sound barrier.

Unboxing a MONSTER  | Extreme neodymium magnets 👀

Published on Sep 17, 2017

Never thought I would unbox a magnet bigger than my monster 6x2", but technology is evolving and I love following along.

Luckily, was kind enough to donate the magnets featured in this video. They are not cheap! The biggest one alone contains around 3 kg of the rare earth metal neodymium.

The website is German, but I have communicated with them in English and Chrome can translate the website to your language, so don't let it stop you.  ;D

inertial propulsion with gyroscope part 18 - mass transfer-


Published on May 12, 2018

ouufff !! seems that Newton is always very right, but Eric Laithwaite too.

If this attempt of explanation of the movement of mass transfer, is correct, the next step will be to study the mechanism of how a spinning and precessing gyro is able to transfer its mass along the spinning shaft ?? And that will be epic for sure.

Inside Space Shuttle Challenger STS-51L During The Accident (Higher Quality)


Earth Station Alpha

Published on Jan 5, 2017

On January 28, 1986 despite the warnings of engineers not to launch in freezing temperatures, NASA management chose to launch Space Shuttle Challenger.  The result was the loss of 7 astronauts in a horrific explosion 73 seconds later when flames from a solid rocket booster leak from a **** o-ring and burned through the main fuel tank.  The solid rocket boosters remained intact after the explosion and continued on out of control before mission control sent a self destruct signal to them so they could not cause destruction on the ground.

This video gives a detailed and technical explanation of the entire Challenger accident including pre-launch assembly, launch, post-launch, and accident investigation. It is highly recommended that the entire video be viewed to get a full understanding of the Space Shuttle Challenger accident.

With the availability of the new ASCII Emojis, I am issuing a new style directive on the Diner.

In the titles on the Subject Line of your post, stick to ONE Emoji, either at the beginning or the end of the title.  Let's not overkill here.


I don't now how to find all these new emojiiii's aND ALSO DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLACE THEM IN THE TITLE?

ASCII Emojis are just like text you keyboard.  They each have a code behind them and each platform has its own version of the character.  So what you see on Apple looks a little different than what you see on Windows or Google or Android.

The easiest way to add them to your text is to go to and copy/paste into your text.

Procedure is as follows:

1- Open up a window with the website
2- Click on the category of emoji you are looking for or type the keyword in the SEARCH box at the top of the page.  If there is an emoji for it, the search will find it.
3- Click on the emoji you want to use, and a new screen for that emoji pops up.
4- Click the "copy" button for that emoji
5- Go back to the window where you were keyboarding and paste (ctrl+V) wherever you want (including in the Subject (Title) Field)

No html or bbcode tags are necessary.  It's just like a text character.

Knarf, so far no ASCII Emoji for the NTHE Symbol.  You do have the Skull & Crossbones though!



RE's advice is good and proper. But RE didn't mention what I immediately became confused by and I'm sure you were confused by as well. Teaching is not RE's strong forte, to put it mildly.  ;)

Here's the deal:

1. Those dad gum emojies do NOT show up in the preview, but they DO show up when you post in the title or in your post.

2. Just put a bunch of them in a wordpad document and copy and paste the one you want as the occasion requires it. (i.e. go to the web site and copy and paste into a blank wordpad document you label as Emojies text fun and games).

3. Save your emojies wordpad document and open it when you are posting.

4. I have my emojies document open now and I will now copy and paste an appropriate representation of a lousy teacher: 🦀 This can be placed in the title the same way.

5. In the body of your post you can make it bigger by just making it bold and increasing the font size too🦀

6. Have fun but remember RE doesn't want us to have too much fun or he will rain thunder upon we mortals.  

7. One more thing: The font that Microsoft interprets the emojies as having is Segoe UI Symbol. This means a few of the emojies don't show properly in your document. I haven't figured my way around that. I hope da godfader is in a good mood and will kindly show is how to do dat widout to much hair pulling and so on. 🐉

Sampling of Segoe UI Symbol Emojies that don't show up right on a wordpad document (i.e., they show as vertical rectangles  :():

🦓🦒🦕 🦖 🦔, etc.

As you can see, they do show up fine here, so if you can manage to tack these graphics with cut and paste from a paint graphic print screen onto the wordpad document next to their corresponding vertical rectangle , you can then ID them before you use them.  8)

I hear and I obey, great one. 🐸

I was waiting to see how long it would take you to go ballistic with this.  ;D  I figured if I didn't issue the directive, pretty soon you would have a whole title filled with an Emoji sentence. 


Who? Me? I'm innocent of all the charges. I was framed, I tell ya! 🦍

Agelbert NOTE: You know, I can reason out an expanding earth from the gravity problems that large dinosaurs present. The physical size, as well as the nerve sensation transmission and circulatory system physiology  of a land animal is size limited by gravity. But the claim that fossil fuels are a "renewable resource" is absolute balderdash! 

Whenever someone wants to lie to you effectively, they will start with a lot of truth that challenges modern scientific assumptions AND THEN CAREFULLY mix the mendacious propaganda along the way. I suspect a some fossil fuel industry    money funded that bold faced LIE in the above video about fossil fuels being "Renewable".

The following well researched and illustrated video  gets into the irrefutably impossible to solve physiological problems with the size of the large dinosaurs in our present gravity:

Large Dinosaurs and their Gravity Problems

The Ganymede Hypothesis

Streamed live on Jun 25, 2016

Problems involving torque, square/cube phenomena, blood pressure and other conundrums which would make life in our present world impossible for a large dinosaur.

Agelbert NOTE:
If you think the dinosaurs existed in our present gravity, you believe an impossibility. Yes, mainstream paleo poobas want you to believe that lie.  What you need to ask yourself is, WHY do they insist on that easily deconstructed unscientific baloney?

BECAUSE they would then have to doubt the assumption that earth never expanded. They do not want to do that. That would make them look like a pack of fools. They are proud of their pet theories and will stick to them, no matter how irrational.  :P

Science has done a lot of good. But making scientific theories equivalent to God's laws is irrational and foolish. There is only one God, and He is 100% TRUTH, unlike the Scientific Community, which barely passes the 51% mark on any given day.

Chaos is order out of disorder, and order out of non-linearity.

When there is agreement within a system, the more complex a system, the better a bottom up/emergent organizational structure handles the diversity.
