Scientists Trace Extreme Heat in Australia to Global Warming

September 30, 2014 by legitgov

Scientists Trace Extreme Heat in Australia to Global Warming 29 Sept 2014 The savage heat waves that struck Australia last year were almost certainly a direct consequence of greenhouse gases released by human activity, researchers said Monday. It is perhaps the most definitive statement climate scientists have made tying a specific weather event to global warming. Five groups of researchers, using distinct methods, analyzed the heat that baked Australia for much of 2013 and continued into 2014, briefly shutting down the Australian Open tennis tournament in January when the temperature climbed to 111 degrees Fahrenheit. All five research groups came to the conclusion that last year's heat waves could not have been as severe without the long-term climatic warming caused by human emissions.

Children-paralyzing virus spreads across 40 U.S. states 30 Sept 2014 Several hundred US kids are being treated for Enterovirus 68 – a respiratory illness that can cause children to become paralyzed.

Two of them were confirmed with EV-68 and respiratory illness before the symptoms began, and all of the children had been previously vaccinated against poliovirus.

Senile sack of Iran-Contra sh*t, Ronald Reagan, authorized NSA spying: New Reagan-era documents show legal basis for NSA surveillance programs 29 Sept 2014 Documents released by the U.S. government show it views an executive order issued in 1981 as the basis of most of the National Security Agency's surveillance activities, the American Civil Liberties Union said on Monday.

The order, signed in 1981 by President Ronald Reagan, was intended to give the government broad authority over surveillance of international targets.

Lavrov: Western bloc headed by Washington rejects UN principle that all states are equal 27 Sept 2014 The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA. "The US-led Western alliance, while acting as an advocate of democracy, rule of law and human rights in individual countries, is acting in the international arena from the opposite position, rejecting the democratic principle of the sovereign right of states enshrined in the UN Charter and trying to decide for others what is good and what is bad," Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Saturday.

US bid for secret Guantanamo force-feeding hearings prompts cover-up fears

US bid for secret Guantánamo force-feeding hearings prompts cover-up fears --The Guardian is among several news organisations planning to file a motion to challenge the administration's secrecy request 29 Sept 2014 The Obama administration has asked a federal judge to hold a highly anticipated court hearing on its painful force-feedings of Guantánamo Bay detainees almost entirely in secret, prompting suspicions of a cover-up. Justice Department attorneys argued to district judge Gladys Kessler that allowing the hearings to be open to the public would jeopardize national security through the disclosure of classified information. Should Kessler agree, the first major legal battle over forced feeding in a federal court would be less transparent than the military commissions at Guantánamo Bay.

"The United States has had two main areas of work. The first was to deliver a blow to Russia's economy...it is a powerful and complex blow to the economy. The second task was a blow to the economy of the European Union," he added.
