Wonders of Nature / Ants: Nature's Secret Power
« on: June 28, 2014, 04:54:34 pm »

Astounding Research and Footage 

You have seen ants before. They are small, annoying little insects that we easily dismiss, unless we step on a fire ant or leave something sweet lying around and come back to find it covered in the little things.

Well, you will never take ants for granted again after seeing this!

We are only now starting to crack their secret codes so we can understand them. This utterly fascinating film takes you inside the world of these genius creatures, who constitute a superpower all by themselves.

They communicate in codes, using scent and chemicals to work in unison. They transmit clandestine messages and follow invisible trails. They can support 100 times their own weight while standing upside down on glass. They consume vast amounts of food and run huge distances.

And the whole colony functions as one organism.

In this documentary we will be transported into the world of ants through the eyes of Bert Hölldobler, a world authority on these amazing animals.

What animal is the most warlike? What animal has the greatest supercity on the planet? Not man but ants.

 They are the real success story. It is only their tiny size and our vanity that allows us to hold onto the myth of our supremacy. Ants rule the planet. They are found in habitats from far northern Finland to the sweltering tropics.

You will get a look behind the scenes at the underground structures they build. You will not believe your eyes around 45 minutes into this breathtaking film.   ;D

Aside from humans, ants have the most complex societies on earth. They are living proof that with vast numbers and fairly simple rules, a formidable specialized intelligence can emerge - one capable of building climate controlled cities without the need for centralized authority.

Prepare to be astonished!

 --Bibi Farber

This film directed by Wolfgang Thaler.

We have to pressure our government to take major action to stop the degradation of the biosphere from climate change.

Fracking is poisoning aquifers and destroying good farm land while sickening us, our animals and the wildlife! We must stop this despicable profit-over-planet horror!

 It's time to eliminate the excuse our fossil fuel loving oligarchy uses for pollutiong our biosphere and contriving "resources" wars for oil that bring nothing but misery to us and profits for them.

The chemical corporations are also just as guilty of polluting our air, ground and water because they use fossil fuels and do not employ closed loop recycling to keep harmful chemicals from damaging the biosphere.

Help stop this pollution by making oil a liability, not an asset!

Why?  Because that is what it actually is!

Burning fossil fuels is killing us. the sooner we stop "valuing" that poison, the sooner we strip the power away from the war lovers that wield it. Our very democracy is in jeopardy because of centralized energy corporations. That's right; it's just as much about political power as about energy.

Demanding 100% Renewable energy is the way, not only to the extremely important goal of a viable biosphere, but absolutely essential to regaining our democracy from the fossil fuel industry that buys our politicians with the profits from pollution fuels while said politicians keep fossil fuel and nuclear power plant "subsides" (taxpayer theft!) to tilt the energy playing field against renewable energy.

Read this quote from a peer reviewed book by Dilworth and pass it on so people can learn what oil REALLY costs we-the-people:


This is a chart of the fossil fuel subsidies versus renewable energy! If that isn't a "level" energy playing field that looks like an alpine slope, I don't know what is.


I started a petition on Care2: Demand Liberty From Fossil Fuels Through 100% Renewable Energy WWII Style Effort. I'm hoping that if enough people sign my petition, we can make a difference. Will you help me collect signatures by adding your name?
Here's a link to the petition:


Posters you can print to publicize the petition:

Thank you and please pass it on. We'll have real traction against the polluters if we can get 100,000 to several million signatures by September when the petition is to be delivered to the White House.

I come from a Texas oil family, and I have known since grade school that the production, processing, transport, and burning of oil and gas is DIRTY, and that the politics behind oil is even dirtier. We need to turn away from oil, gas, and coal as fast as we can and use wind and solar power to produce electricity for electric powered mass transit, freight trains, and passenger trains, both high speed and conventional Amtrak. Stop the Keystone XL pipeline, the mountaintop removal method of coal mining, fracking on public lands, the oil wars in the Middle East, and wean us away from fossil fuels.

Great News! Thom Hartmann is giving the petition NATIONAL COVERAGE !

I was wondering why the numbers were starting to JUMP!

Now I know!

Pass it on! Let's OVERWHELM the fossil fuelers  that will do EVERYTHING to destroy the petition (and me  ;D) once the numbers start going ballistic.

The DIRTY ENERGY SOURCES long history of profiting from our blood and treasure while they despoil the biosphere.

The following quote from a peer reviewed book is of extreme importance to all Americans:

Dilworth (2010-03-12). Too Smart for our Own Good (pp. 399-400). Cambridge University Press. Kindle Edition.

"As suggested earlier, war, for example, which represents a cost for society, is a source of profit to capitalists. In this way we can partly understand e.g. the American military expenditures in the Persian Gulf area. Already before the first Gulf War, i.e. in 1985, the United States spent $47 billion projecting power into the region. If seen as being spent to obtain Gulf oil, It AMOUNTED TO $468 PER BARREL, or 18 TIMES the $27 or so that at that time was paid for the oil itself.

In fact, if Americans had spent as much to make buildings heat-tight as they spent in ONE YEAR at the end of the 1980s on the military forces meant to protect the Middle Eastern oil fields, THEY COULD HAVE ELIMINATED THE NEED TO IMPORT OIL from the Middle East.

So why have they not done so? Because, while the $468 per barrel may be seen as being a cost the American taxpayers had to bear, and a negative social effect those living in the Gulf area had to bear, it meant only profits for American capitalists. "

Note: I added the bold caps emphasis on the barrel of oil price, money spent in one year and the need to import oil from the Middle East.

This totally unjustified profit, never mind the needless loss of lives, then increases the power of the fossil fuel corporations to perpetuate a biosphere harming dirty fuel status quo. How? By "funding" politicians with rather large "donations" to keep renewable energy from competing with dirty energy.

If all this was just about power politics, I might not be that concerned. Humans, particularly the overly ambitious and aggressive ones, have always fought and schemed to control and fleece the population at large.

But now we know the future of our biosphere is at stake. Now we know the entire edifice of dirty energy is a knife in the back of the biosphere that will destroy our species and many others.

The system, as defined by the fossil fuel fascist dystopia that currently runs most of the human affairs among the 1 billion population in the developed world that is saddling the other 6 billion, who are totally free of guilt for causing it, with this climate horror we are beginning to experience, IS quite stubborn and does not wish to change the status quo.

Mother nature will force it to do so.

Whether it is done within the next two decades or not (i.e. a switch to 100% PLUS bioremediation Renewable Energy steady state economy) will dictate the size of the consequent die off, not only of humans but thousands of other species as well.

We are now in a climate cake that has been baked for about 1,000 years according to atmospheric, objective, proven with experimental data, science.

If the crash program to switch to renewable energy is to begin soon, I expect the trigger for the crash program will be the first ice free arctic summer (according to my estimates) in 2017. But millions of people demanding a transition to 100% renewable Energy will give us a fighting chance to win the Climate Victory.

You can help us leave dirty energy sources that are killing us behind. I started a petition on Care2: Demand Liberty From Fossil Fuels Through 100% Renewable Energy WWII Style Effort. I'm hoping that if enough people sign my petition, we can make a difference. Will you help me collect more by adding your name?

Hi, I have a good idea to produce electrical energy from solar energy using what I want to call SPUDS Solar powered up draft slopes. Simple greenhouse roof holds in warm air which is allowed to travel up slope of mountain through turbines to produce electrical energy. If interested email me, mghertel (at) execpc.com I need lots of help with the design and funding however I am sure if built well it would show a good profit quickly.

 Representative Fred Upton (R-Mi6) says he supports an "all of the above" energy policy. This includes legislative favors for dirty energy's big-money interests, as well as Upton's five-year battle on behalf of the Keystone XL pipeline—which he claims is part of his "vision" for the nation's "New Architecture of Abundance."

Upton’s constituents do not believe in his "vision." We see nothing new about continuing to spew fossil fuel exhaust. We see eternal abundance in wind and sunshine.

As Chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Upton spins his committee's support for dirty energy as "protecting jobs" and "taking care of the economy." Meanwhile, bills that encourage commerce in clean energy die in Upton's committee.  >:(

Upton’s constituents understand that the nation’s interest would be best served if Upton’s committee would stop doing favors for dirty energy and, instead, would encourage the research, development, production, and delivery of clean energy—the kind of commerce that would clearly benefit the environment and the economy while creating true job growth.

Upton, now in his fourth year as chairman, could have taken a leading role in the nation’s—and thereby the planet’s—all-important transition from dirty energy to clean. Instead, he lets renewable-energy initiatives die in his committee. Upton has forsaken his leadership responsibility and has capitulated to the big-money corporate interests that are pushing us toward our own extinction.

 That's why I signed a petition to Rep. Fred Upton (MI-6), which says:

 "Please stop pushing outdated big-oil energy solutions. As Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, you should be one of the nation’s strongest advocates for the business of researching, developing, and producing green energy, not black. If you can't take on that role, please retire."

 Will you sign the petition too? Click here to add your name:
