Dr. Russell Blaylock, the MD who produces the Blaylock Wellness Report says

No one should take the swine flu vaccine – it is one of the most dangerous vaccines ever devised. It contains an immune adjuvant called squalene MF-59 which has been shown to cause severe autoimmune disorders such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. This is the vaccine adjuvant that is strongly linked to the Gulf War syndrome, which killed over 10,000 soldiers and caused a 200% increase in the fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehreg disease). This [swine flu] virus kills by causing a cytokine storm, which means that it causes the body's immune system to overreact and that is why it is killing young people and is a mild disease in the elderly. (The elderly have weakened immune systems.) This vaccine is a very powerful immune stimulator and carries the real possibility of making the lethality of the virus much greater. http://www.blaylockreport.com/

A leading world authority on sea levels, Dr Nils-Axel Mörner, past president (1999-2003) of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, has slammed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports on sea levels, pointing out that he had been an expert reviewer for the IPCC in both 2000 and 2006 and when he read an IPCC report, “it had 22 authors, but none of them—none—were sea-level specialists.”

In an interview with EIR magazine on 6th June 2007, Dr Mörner pointed out that from 1992 to 2002, satellite data indicated no sea level rise at all: the graph “was a straight line … no trend whatsoever.” Then in 2003, IPCC publications showed a 2.3 mm per year rising sea level trend, for the same data set! Mörner: “those people in the IPCC, choose Hong Kong, which has six tide gauges, and they choose the record of one, which gives 2.3 mm per year rise of sea level. Every geologist knows that that is a subsiding area. … That is terrible! As a matter of fact, it is a falsification of the data set.”

No organisation that owes its existence or funding to a disease or a problem has ever, to the best of my knowledge, cured that disease or solved that problem.

If the world is a dangerous place to live, it is not because of the people who are evil but because of the good people who don’t do anything about it.
