  • TRANSATLANTIC TRADE & INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP petition

    Can we encourage as many as possible to sign and/or organise petitions - and if possible to attend the "Day of Action" at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Saturday 30th August at 10am.

    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Perils of Climate Modification

A lot is now being written about geo-engineering - otherwise known as climate mediation/modification. Cloud seeding experiments which begun a generation ago have expanded and are being made more high tech all the time - and there seems to be no control or responsibility on the part of the agencies and organisations involved worldwide.

We can read in all sorts of government reports that NASA, the US military and others are increasingly trying out methods of reflecting sunlight away from the earth, and they claim that this is necessary to stop global warming. However, the risks are well known and acknowledged by the scientists involved in these developments:  that the reverse effect is likely because man made cloud cover traps heat in, and because water vapour being artificially introduced into the atmosphere actually increases the greenhouse effect.  Multiple chemicals including barium, silver, aluminium and salt, some as nano particles, are being used to generate man made clouds - all of which eventually precipitate to earth and affect people, plants and the soil.

Eco community seeks partners

Three households with capital seek others to form Eco-community in SW Wales

We would like to establish an Eco-community that embraces deep respect for each other and the land. We envisage each household having their own dwelling, with the majority of the land being worked communally to grow food with provision for individual plots, raising animals, running sustainable businesses, and managing our own water and woodland.
