    I deeply appreciate your encouragement 22catch,
    I have actually campaigned for public office four times now,
    not because I was desperate to win, I only got 41 votes in all
    four campaigns combined, but I felt that I had some insights on
    some serious problems that I simply had to put out there!

    A few weeks ago I got some astonishingly good news:

    Graphene sieves and low cost desalination of ocean water.

    A comment by President Donald J. Trump makes this whole topic
    more relevant again.

    BestViewedWithCable..... I personally take the Jim Rickards warning very seriously.

    I also think that Hillary would have assisted Soros and buddies to devalue the USA petro -dollar........
    What do you think of his theories?

    This is relevant to this topic because America, Canada, Israel and Australia all need a mega-project to
    divert those 4.3 trillion USA petro-dollars in a manner that is win - win -win - win - win for all of our nations.

    President Trump..... is in a position to get Soros to play a role kind of like DrEvil..... Buffet could be like MiniMe........ and Hillary and Obama could both possibly avoid jail .....IF... they speak the script that President Trump gives them....... in exactly the tone of voice that he wants them to speak in!

    We now have ourselves a quite serious situation......
    CIA economist Jim Rickards has stated that by 2014 there were 117 TRILLION USA petrodollars in the Derivatives market......

    The most well informed among us are just waiting for the Derivatives market to drag all the markets down but I think that there is an option.......... and one variation of the option is given in posts #51 - 58 here on page 3 of this discussion in the "Creative Corner" forum:


    Proposed Republic of Western Canada and Unified Field Theory of M.W.P.

    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...theory-of-m-w-p.548225/page-3#post-1070177607
    Oh.... although I know that most readers will laugh..... I was being totally serious when I wrote this to President Trump:

    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...theory-of-m-w-p.548225/page-3#post-1070251613

    No Canadian with two clues to rub together would think that a threat to devalue the USA petrodollar is not also a threat against Canada..........
    there is just no way that we thirty seven million Canadians could take over to finance protecting the whole world like America has been doing since WWII!!!!!

    Now with the possibility of a ONE HUNDRED TRILLION USA PETRODOLLAR meltdown in the world Derivatives market hanging over our heads.... This basic idea needs to be looked at again.................
    The best humour is at least partly serious.......

    .....


    Responding to a BEAR market vs a Bull market?

    I believe that one significant part of responding to the vulnerable world Derivatives market would be
    to get political leaders to forget about the silly Carbon Tax or Cap and Trade System and
    embrace a truly win - win - win - win - win strategy for stabilization of the climate.

    The movement to do this could well begin in Canada due to our having the Bay of Fundy which
    presents us with the question of what happens in the area of the world with the most extreme tides.......
    if even a modest average rise in ocean levels does occur?

    Would you mind elaborating further because it seems that Washington at this time is in the hands of a President
    who is very interested in practical solutions.

    I just got send a link to a rather encouraging video:

    I am attempting to ramp things up somewhat by at least trying to mount my fifth campaign for political office but I suspect that my tendency toward sarcasm will probably get me into trouble with may voters.

    I have an update.... I am promoting a plan to get Latter day Saints and their supporters to lead the charge toward unity with the nation of Israel on some big projects like longevity......... and turning deserts green..... and beating COVID 19 and most of the world's major diseases........
    For a number of reasons Latter day Saints seem to be the most well read Christians that I have ever fellowshipped with.....(and they also have exceptionally good senses of humour for us Christians who do tend to be stuffy).......... . (my guess is that because they have already read The Book of Mormon that is quite large.... they tend to also want to read The Book of Jasher, The Book of Enoch, The Book of Adam and Eve, The Roman Catholic Bible and even near death experience accounts that Mormons have a high level of respect for.

    Latter day Saints and I plan to use humour...... to save the USA Constitution and USA petro-dollar...... and introduce nothing less than a Unified Field Theory of Modern World Problems.... founded on the alternative theory of stabilization of the climate that fits nicely with Isaiah chapter thirty five..............

    I think that the Christian Mafia who use fear religion are about to have themselves a significant problem......


    https://www.near-death.com/experiences/exceptional/christian-andreason.html#a04h
    Can you imagine a massive movement of Latter day Saints to do tours to Israel....... so young guys wearing white shirts and ties..... become a fixture all over the nation of Israel.... (and Israel tends to be pretty warm for most of the year)...... and they are super polite......... they are amazingly well read..... and they they are asking the Rabbi's really, really, really, really good questions... because they have already listened to lecture after lecture after lecture after lecture after lecture by near death experiencer and form Atheist Rabbi Alon Anava........... that most Christians can't handle.................................. because they are no where nearly so well read as Mormons tend to be!

    Under these circumstances with the Israeli tourism industry .... (and the entire world economy ).... in shambles...... an invasion of Latter day Saint tourists will I am sure be greatly welcomed in Israel.......

    Latter day Saint medical professionals and Israeli medical professionals can do something with this....... .and I believe that the death toll among Latter day Saints and Israelis can be dramatically reduced......

    It would seem to make more sense to try to capture CO2 at the source of emission rather than try to remove it from the atmosphere.

    Certain big industrial operations that emit large amounts of CO2.
    The reality is we are not going to be removing all the CO2 from the atmosphere anytime soon, so if it is to be done, we should focus on the most economically feasible parts.

    (I mean, even if this idea would only ever be able to remove, say, 15% of the CO2, we should still focus on that because it is actually unrealistic to expect us to take some other method, which may theoretically be able to remove 100% of the CO2, and get to more than 15%, due to the much greater cost and engineering challenge)

    This is the only thing that makes sense.

    If you want to remove co2 from air for use, then you need plants to capture it from the air, turn them into fuel, burn the fuel.

    Capture the co2 from the enhanced stream for use in industry.

    Co2 from air schemes are snake oil without plants except for Military use where the cost might be offset by convenience and then it involves taking it from seawater not air.

    I love the idea of capturing the CO2... and turning it into better and better and better food.

    I think a lot of you are ignorant of the overall science and basic mathematics of these proposed processes, so ideas that may seem like a good idea to you may really be in actuality rather senseless.
    For example, one idea may be 10 times harder than another idea to put into real-world use, but without people knowing that, they'll think the harder idea sounds better, because it could (theoretically) do more things. It would not be an economic use of our limited resources though.

    This type of problem has a lot of political implications, because politicians often make choices based on feel-good ideas rather than based on real knowledge and expertise from the experts in the best place to know which ideas make the most sense.
    We should go with the ideas that give us the most value for our money. Even if they are not the most exciting ideas, and even if they will never be able to solve all of the problem.

    Solving 15% of the problem in 10 different places is better than solving 100% of the problem in one place but then not being able to do anything else because you ran out of money.

    In your opinion am I being naive to think that the existence of an ancient Islamic prophecy that seems to fit perfectly with Isaiah chapter thirty five could make this alternative theory easier to accomplish due to it being one possible common idea that Jews, Muslims and Christians and many Agnostics and people from all religions may tend to think is a generally worthy goal worthy of further discussion and research?


    Book 005, Number 2208:
    "Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (way peace be upon him) as saying: The Last Hour will not come before wealth becomes abundant and overflowing, so much so that a man takes Zakat out of his property and cannot find anyone to accept it from him and till the land of Arabia becomes meadows and rivers."

    There is some amazing information here after the forty minute mark in this documentary.... very politically incorrect but... informative.

    When it comes to linking this to comedy or humor..... it would be rather dark comedy wouldn't it?????

    And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

    I honestly think that Mr. Woody Harrelson and Mr. Ray Archuleta may be more deserving of The Virgin Earth Challenge than Carl and I......and their approach is kind of funny too!
