People who grow their own food labeled ‘extremist’ by Dept. of Defense

(NaturalNews) If the founding fathers were reincarnated today, they’d probably start another revolution, this time to break away from an American government that has become far too imperial for its own good.

 

And as such, they’d be labeled “extremists” by those who mean to rule us.

Fukushima’s radioactive ocean plume to reach American shores in 2014

(http://www.sciencerecorder.com)New research shows that the radioactive ocean plume from the Fukushima nuclear power plant will reach the United States’ west coast in 2014.

 

 

The study was performed by researchers from Australia’s Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science and others, who published their findings in the journal, Deep-Sea Research 1. The researchers used a range of ocean simulations to track the path of the radiation from the Fukushima incident to identify where it would likely travel through the oceans over the next 10 years.

The shape of Scotland after the referendum

Since the date of the referendum on Scottish Independence was announced, I have been frequently asked about my views on further devolution in Scotland.

 Here, then, are some thoughts.

In spite of some comments to the contrary, devolution in Scotland has been a success. The Scotland Act 2012 gives additional powers to the Scottish Parliament and some are being implemented. These include: air weapons; drug misuse; drink-driving limits; speed limits; and landfill tax. There is more to come in terms of financial accountability in 2016. This will involve the largest ever transfer of financial powers to Scotland. So should it stop there, or is there room for further devolution? How can the relationship between Scotland and the rest of the UK continue to develop?

Iceland population to grow due to net migration

Iceland’s population is expected to climb to between 430,000 and 490,000 by the year 2060, according to new estimates from Statistics Iceland.

 

The statistic agency’s population projection shows that the majority of the increase will be down to the country’s high net migration figures. The current population of the North Atlantic nation is just below 322,000.
