Climate change flyer05-05_fin.qxp - National Academies

Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change Climate change is real There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring1. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)2. This warming has already led to changes in the Earth's climate. The existence of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is vital to life on Earth – in their absence average temperatures would be about 30 centigrade degrees lower than they are today. But human activities are now causing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases – including carbon dioxide, methane, tropospheric ozone, and nitrous oxide – to rise well above pre-industrial levels. Carbon dioxide levels have increased from 280 ppm in 1750 to over 375 ppm today – higher than any previous levels that can be reliably measured (i.e. in the last 420,000 years). Increasing greenhouse gases are causing temperatures to rise; the Earth’s surface warmed by approximately 0.6 centigrade degrees over the twentieth century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected that the average global surface temperatures will continue to increase to between 1.4 centigrade degrees and 5.8 centigrade degrees above 1990 levels, by 2100.

Giving in the Aftermath of 9/11 - Foundation Center

The Foundation Center have focused on the ultimate uses and beneficiaries of the donations raised by the relief funds from all sources, and we have issued a comprehensive report on their funding activities and practices.1 While the scope of our 9/11-related efforts has expanded, we have continued to track the foundation and corporate response. Specifically, in the latest year we have added hundreds of new donors to our 9/11 database and thousands of individual gifts. This report provides an overview of 9/11 giving by institutional donors based on data compiled through September 2003, updating and expanding on the findings presented in our November 2002 report.2 The latest information was drawn primarily from 2001 and 2002 annual reports provided by foundation and corporate donors and from data reported by private foundations in their Form 990-PF tax returns. Information also comes from grantmaker news releases and Web sites and donor lists compiled by leading recipients, such as the September 11th Fund of the United Way of New York and the New York Community Trust and the American Red Cross.

ReThink911 September 4 Release - ReThink911.org

ReThink911 Launches Global Public Awareness Campaign for 12th Anniversary of 9/11 The ReThink911 Campaign, sponsored by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is a global public awareness campaign launched this week in an effort to spark a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. On a 54-foot-tall Times Square billboard and a variety of transit and outdoor advertising in Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Sydney and London, accompanied by citizen activist events all over the world, the campaign poses the question, “Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11?” To this day, many people are not aware that a third skyscraper, 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, mysteriously collapsed in seven seconds a few hours after the World Trade Center Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Many reputable and credentialed technical professionals challenge the official report on this building’s collapse by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ReThink911 campaign calls for a new investigation to answer questions about the collapse of Building 7 and the Twin Towers 12 years ago. “The official story of what happened at Ground Zero simply cannot be true,” said Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Founder Richard Gage. “More than 2,000 professional architects and engineers, along with family members of victims and thousands of concerned citizens, believe a truly independent investigation is...

What Happened on 9/11? Nine Years of Polling College ...

F O L L O W I N G THE DEATH of Osama Bin Laden, many American young people across the country gathered on street comers and in front of the White House, some celebrating with chants of "U-S-A" and others singing the national anthem. Press coverage of the youthñil celebrators, many of them part of Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, renamed these young people the "9/11 Generation."' Newspaper accounts following Bin Laden's demise discuss him as "the common evil" that the Millennial Generation faced in much the same way as their grandparents had faced Hitler.2 One student remarks that Bin Laden's death is "the defining moment" of his generation.^ Nine-eleven, it appears, is a memorable moment for this generation. Over nine years earlier, on September 11, 2001,1 was also concemed about how young people would come to understand what came to be called "9/11." After spending the moming of September 11, 2001 watching television as the Twin Towers in New York collapsed, I arrived on campus to teach my lower-division history class, and was immediately informed that classes were cancelled for the day because of the "evil attacks." Since I regularly tell my students that "evil" is not a useful analytic term for the writing and understanding of history, I devised a questionnaire for my History 101 students to assess their understanding of the event."

Disturbing Questions Yet Unanswered About the 9/11 Attacks

As peace and justice activists, we must address the violence and injustice in the world and do our best to prevent and alleviate the suffering that results. However, to be more effective in our work, we must also stand back and discern the root causes of oppression, violence, and injustice. The sole political root cause of the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, and of the passage of the Patriot Act and the formation of the Department of Homeland Security has been the attacks of September 11, 2001. Without 9/11, Americans would have never tolerated these events. And yet, there are numerous very disturbing issues surrounding 9/11 that have not been investigated in any meaningful way by Congress, the 9/11 Commission, or the media. In fact, due to the nearly total blackout in the U.S. news media, few Americans even know that there are serious uninvestigated questions—questions which challenge the “official story” of the 9/11 attacks, and which strongly imply complicity by elements of the U.S. Government. Few know that the 9/11 Commission has consciously ignored these questions. They were presented to the Commissioners by the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission (family members of 9/11 victims) who begged them to investigate these questions. As one family member was told by a commission...

The Facts About 9/11 First Responders - Meetup

The Facts About 9/11 First Responders New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has un-invited all 9/11 first responders to this month’s official tenth anniversary ceremony. The city announced earlier this week (late August) that due to security and space issues, there would be no room for the first responders. Instead, they’ll be invited to a private ceremony on a different date. “They were the first ones on the scene when the World Trade Center towers fell on September 11, 2001, but ten years later, the first responders are being told that they will not be invited to take part in this year’s tenth anniversary ceremony at Ground Zero.” –Fox News, WIBX “I’m absolutely disgusted. (This is) a total disrespect to the responders… it’s very easy for them to make the space for us.” --Retired NYPD officer Anthony Flammia told FOX News (WIBX).

The Market for Foreign Exchange
by kelly_fats 0 Comments favorite 5 Viewed Download 0 Times

The Market for Foreign Exchange MONEY REPRESENTS PURCHASING power. Possessing money from your country gives you the power to purchase goods and services produced (or assets held) by other residents of your country. But to purchase goods and services produced by the residents of another country generally first requires purchasing the other country’s currency. This is done by selling one’s own currency for the currency of the country with whose residents you desire to transact. More formally, one’s own currency has been used to buy foreign exchange, and in so doing the buyer has converted his purchasing power into the purchasing power of the seller’s country. The market for foreign exchange is the largest financial market in the world by virtually any standard. It is open somewhere in the world 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. The 2001 triennial central bank survey compiled by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) places worldwide daily trading of spot and forward foreign exchange at $1.2 trillion dollars per day. This is equivalent to nearly $200 in transactions for every person on earth. This, however, represents a 19 percent decrease over 1998. The decline is due to the introduction of the common euro currency, which eliminates the need to trade one euro zone currency for another to conduct business transactions, and to consolidation within the banking industry. London remains the world’s largest foreign exchange trading center. According to the 2001 triennial survey, daily trading volume in the U.K. is estimated at $504 billion, a 21 percent decrease from 1998. U.S. daily turnover was $254 billion, which represents a 28 percent decline from 1998. Exhibit 4.1 presents a pie...
