Because of fracking technology, oil is literally gushing in the United States. But what effect is this boom having and what can we expect to see in the future?

Though fracking produces enough oil to take a big chunk out of the U.S. trade deficit, it is under unrelenting attack. We’ll look at the truth of the allegations.

The recent intrusion into a computer network at the White House, made public last week, appears to have been carried out by hackers working for the Russian government. This is not an isolated incident. Over the past several years Russia has been responsible for multiple, sustained attacks on computer systems belonging to governments and security firms with government contracts.

 

 

There have been hints about the possibility of a second person leaking classified documents to reporters close to the Snowden story. Now the FBI has identified a suspect.

A team of environmental “scientists” published a new study in a U.S. government-linked journal claiming that even a planetary Communist Chinese-style one-child policy would not be enough to stop alleged “overpopulation” from ravishing the Earth and making humanity “unsustainable.” In fact, according to the Australian researchers, even combined with massive reductions in population via another world war, a global one-child policy would still not be enough to save the planet and the environment from the supposed scourge of mankind. To deal with their reputed “crisis,” the authors propose encouraging — read brainwashing or perhaps even coercing — women to have fewer children while rationing resources for those humans fortunate enough to escape their population-control regime. But even that will not be enough, according to the paper.
