AUSTRALIA: CLIMATE CHANGE NUTTERS PROTEST IN SNOW THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE BY NOW.

Today was Climate Change Nutter Day or Climate Strike Day or whatever, and it seems all over the globe gullible idiots, far too many of them seriously indoctrinated schoolchildren, went AWOL from whatever responsibilities they had to protest the governments' lack of measures to combat climate change.

One such a bunch of bozos demonstrated on Mount Hotham, a 1,862 metres (6,109 ft) high peak in the south of the Australian Alps, renowned for its skiing possibilities:





As you can all notice, the demonstrators stand or sit in an, ah, peculiar..., powdery, White Substance.

Which is REALLY WEIRD, because that substance, apparently sometimes referred to as 'snow', SHOULD NOT BE THERE!

Indeed, back in 2012 an Australian Professor, Catherine Pickering, of the Griffith School of Environment no less, scared the living sh*t out of all ski aficionados with her scientifically underpinned claim that by 2020, the snow in the Australian Alps would be gone:





"ENVIRONMENTAL researchers say the end of Australia's ski culture is in sight, despite Victoria and NSW experiencing one of their best snow seasons in almost a decade.

People were still shredding up powder last weekend at some of Australia's top ski resorts, but Griffith associate professor Catherine Pickering says snow is rapidly disappearing because of global warming and by 2020 Australia may not have any left.

"We've predicted by 2020 to lose something like 60 per cent of the snow cover of the Australian Alps," Professor Pickering, from the Griffith School of Environment, said.

"Unfortunately because our current emissions and our current rises in temperatures are at the high end of the predictions, it's definitely coming to us sooner and faster."

Professor Pickering researched the effects of declining snow cover and hotter summers on the Australian Alps and says this year's better than average season has been a one-off combination of La Nina and a cold snap.

"We'll still occasionally have good years, but they'll become less frequent," she said. "A poor year in the past will be a good year now."

The research covered all Victoria and NSW ski resorts and Professor Pickering says the alpine region is most threatened by climate change, with an increasing threat to endemic and endangered mountain species as well as plants because of early thaws...."



Listen to Prof Pickering yakking about the catastrophic effects of climate change:





But that was then (2012), this is now (2019):


2019:

A low-pressure system will bring snow during Friday through Saturday, mostly above 1400m, but possibly reaching 1200m, followed by another cold surge and more snow during Sunday into Monday. All up we can expect 20-40cm across all resorts...

This season has already passed expectations... The latest reading from Spencer’s Creek a week ago was up at 228.8cm, which puts us well above average. But looking lower down at Deep Creek (1620m) and Three Mile Dam (1460m), snow depths are fairly average.

Prof Pickering may still be right of course. There's some three months left before it's 2020!

SECRETARY GENERAL OF WORLD METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION TO WARMISTS: COOL IT DUDES.

Warmists take notice! The Head of the World Meteorological Organization, Petteri Taalas, has called you out for nutcases!

Of course, you can now resort to your standard practice and shriek at the top of your lungs that Taalas is a climate denier and also moonlighting as a nazi and a racist.

Via The Global Warming Policy Forum:






Speaking to Finland’s financial newspaper Talouselämä (“The Journal”) on 6 September 2019, Petteri Taalas called for cooler heads to prevail, saying that he does not accept arguments that the end of the world is at hand:


~ It is not going to be the end of the world. The world is just becoming more challenging. In parts of the globe living conditions are becoming worse, but people have survived in harsh conditions.


He also says that the Finnish discourse on climate change has become overly doom-laden:


~ The atmosphere created by media has been provoking anxiety. The latest idea is that children are a negative thing. I am worried for young mothers, who are already under much pressure. This will only add to their burden.



Moreover, contrary to much of what is heard in the media, he thinks that the solution to climate change does not require people to live ascetic lives. “If you start to live like an orthodox monk”, he says, “the world is not going be saved”. He stresses that standards of living should not be lowered.

And he suggests that radical environmentalists are now a major problem:


~ While climate sceptisism has become less of an issue, now we are being challenged from the other side. Climate experts have been attacked by these people and they claim that we should be much more radical. They are doomsters and extremists; they make threats. Much more radical action is demanded by Extinction Rebellion movement. They demand zero emissions by 2025 and “honest” climate information from governments.


To Taalas, the deep greens have been abusing the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, cherrypicking parts that they think will support radical action.


~ The IPCC reports have been read in a similar way to the Bible: you try to find certain pieces or sections from which you try to justify your extreme views. This resembles religious extremism.


Although he is critical of right wing populists who do not accept any climate action, he warns of what might happen if fuel taxes are raised too far, noting the protests of the French gilets jaunes.

Taalas hopes that mainstream media will become more critical and hopes more for a more diverse presentation of views and argues that all sides should be interviewed.


~ We should consider critically, and with reservations, the thoughts of experts…”



Now if only we can get Mr Taalas to drop the nonsense about taking a measure of climate action...

THANK ALLAH IT'S FRIDAY!!!

In which we follow the restoration of a Citroën Traction Avant, the iconic car of the interbellum in Europe!





The legendary Citroën Traction Avant (litterally Front Traction) existed in a wide range of mostly 4-door saloons and executive cars, with four or six-cylinder engines. It was produced by Citroën from 1934 to 1957, and around 760,000 units of all types rolled off assembly lines in France, Belgium, the UK, Germany and Denmark.

The front wheel drive was but one of several quite revolutionary innovations which are still common in modern cars, like four-wheel independent suspension, a crash resistant monocoque body, and rack and pinion steering. Visually too, the car instantly stood out, because of its sleek lines drawn by famed Italian designer Flaminio Bertoni and the fact that its ground clearance was far less than that of contemporaries (because of the absence of a separate chassis underneath):





Isn't she a beauty? This is the Traction Avant 11CV, in which CV stands for "Chevaux fiscaux", or fiscal horsepower. The 11 CV was launched in 1935 and was fitted with the 1,911 cm3 engine. Real horsepower reached a maximum of around 55HP at 3,800 rpm, and maximum torque was 119Nm at 2,000 rpm.

OUGHTERARD, CO. GALWAY, IRELAND: DEPLORABLES REJECT PROGRESSIVE PLANS TO REPLACE THEM.

We have dwelled before on multiculti scoundrel Leo Varadkar, soi-disant Taoiseach of Eire.

Ever since that unholy name entered my political vocabulary, I have found myself baffled at the improbability of a man reaching the highest office in a country of which he intends to replace the population in perhaps the most drastic scheme in all of Europe.

Before you watch the following video, it is necessary to understand what the Irish mean by 'Direct Provision':



"Direct Provision (Irish: Soláthar Díreach) is a system of asylum seeker accommodation used in the Republic of Ireland. The system has been criticised by human rights organisations as illegal, inhuman and degrading, while proponents argue that it ensures asylum seekers are housed and cared for, in accordance with international law. The system, operated by the Reception and Integration Agency (RIA) of the Department of Justice and Equality, provides asylum seeker residents with accommodation free of charge and a living allowance.[2] Asylum seekers in Direct Provision are usually entitled to state-funded medical care,[3] and children have full mainstreamed access to the education system."



Got that? "accommodation free of charge", "usually entitled to state-funded medical care". There you are, a cream white Irishman at 60 or 65, having contributed 40 years of your life to social security, obeyed the law, doing your part in society, now looking forward to a meager pension and wondering how to pay the bills and stay healthy. Along comes Varadkar and his many cronies who intend to flood Ireland with up to a million welfare seekers who will get everything for free YOU worked for 4 decades of your life... and these bastards think they can get away with it???


Not so. Seán Kyne is a progressive dodo from Varadkar's traitor party Fine Gael and thought he could ram the construction of yet another Direct Provision Center down the locals' throats in Oughterard, County Galway:


"A Government Minister was booed and heckled as up to 700 people attended a public meeting in Oughterard, Co Galway, on Wednesday, and vowed to fight any plans to provide a direct provision centre in their community.

Speaker after speaker expressed anger at the lack of consultation, information and clarity which they say has fuelled rumours in recent weeks concerning refurbishment works at the Connemara Gateway Hotel in Oughterard, which has been closed for a number of years.

Cllr Tom Welby chaired the meeting on behalf of an ad hoc Facebook group which is campaigning to stop any plans to accommodate asylum seekers in the town.

Cllr Welby said neither he or any of the public representatives attending the meeting, including Minister of State Seán Kyne and TDs Catherine Connolly and Noel Grealish, had knowledge of any plans for the future of the building.

However, Mr Kyne told the angry meeting there was a tender process ongoing in the west to find locations for new asylum seeker centres but that this was under the remit of the Department of Justice and neither he nor his colleagues were privy to information about any applications.

He was booed and heckled when he reminded those assembled that Ireland was obliged under EU and United Nations laws to accept and process anyone who could prove they had fled persecution and injustices in their own country.

Many of the speakers accused the Government of ignoring rural towns such as theirs which had only one doctor for a population of 1,600, full to capacity schools, an intercom instead of a Garda station and a social housing waiting list with no sign of any new schemes being built.

One of the main organisers of the meeting, Patrick Curran, said time and again in the course of the night that if the politicians would not stop the centre, the people would."



A vid from the meeting:






Now if only genuine Irishmen and -women could show as much backbone as these people and throw Fine Gael off the Cliffs of Moher in the next general election, Eire has a chance to survive.

In which Mr Darwall elaborates on the Nazi roots of radical environmentalism. For many years I have known about Walter Darré, read stories about concentration camp guards sparing what they called the 'Goethe Eiche' and of course about Hitlers vegetarianism, but to conclude from such circumstancial evidence that Nazis were greenies always seemed a bit far-fetched to me. Darwall's well-researched book just may change that perception:

NUMBER OF HOMELESS PERSONS IN THE NETHERLANDS DOUBLES IN TEN YEAR TIME SPAN.

Dutch daily NRC, one of the most important written news outlets, notes that the number of homeless in The Netherlands has doubled since 2009:





"Het aantal mensen dat in Nederland bekend staat als dak- en thuisloze is sinds 2009 meer dan verdubbeld, zo blijkt uit cijfers van het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS). In 2018 stonden ruim 39.000 mensen bekend als dakloos; in 2009 waren dat er nog ongeveer 18.000. Daklozen die illegaal in Nederland verblijven, zijn niet meegenomen in de cijfers.

„Ik schrik erg van deze cijfers”, schrijft staatssecretaris Paul Blokhuis van Volksgezondheid (ChristenUnie) in een reactie op Twitter. „Dit is een trend die we absoluut moeten keren. Ik wil de komende tijd precies te weten komen wat deze stijging heeft veroorzaakt, zodat we hier samen met gemeenten, woningcorporaties, opvangorganisaties en andere ministeries mee aan de slag kunnen.”

Het aantal daklozen met een niet-westerse achtergrond groeide de laatste jaren harder dan gemiddeld. Deze groep, waarvan de meesten jonger zijn dan 30 jaar, is sinds 2009 in aantal verdrievoudigd tot ruim 18.000. Zij maken sinds 2016 ongeveer de helft uit van het totale aantal daklozen; in 2009 was dit nog 36 procent. Wat daarbij opvalt is dat zij vaker dan gemiddeld in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht en Den Haag verblijven.

Van alle 18- tot 65-jarige daklozen had vorig jaar 57 procent een migratie-achtergrond. Het overgrote deel (84 procent) was man."



The Central Bureau for Statistics notes that in 2009, there were about 18,000 homeless. In 2018 there were 39,000. So that's actually a doubling in 9 years.

Of all the homeless between 18 and 65 years of age, last year 57 per cent had a migration background. Since it is fair to assume that homeless usually fall into that category - below 18, you are usually cared for by your family, and beyond 65 as a homeless person you are either dead or put in a shelter - one can conclude that the doubling is for the greater part the result of The Netherlands' migration policy.

The howler is of course that State Secretary for Public Health Paul Blokhuis "was very much shocked by these numbers".

Well of course you idiot. If your country has an Open Border policy re immigration, you attract large numbers of Third Worlders with no knowledge of the language, no skills, no money, and no customs worth speaking of. Ergo, prime candidates for the growing army of homeless people.


The numbers are devastating. My country Belgium receives about 125,000 - 129,000 migrants PER YEAR. Dutch politicians are a degree more responsible and sane than their Belgian counterparts, but the population is bigger: now around 17.5 million vs 11.3 million. It is thus fair to say The Netherlands also easily welcomes over 100,000 welfare seekers per year.

That is UNSUSTAINABLE.

And to think that if there is one word the grand majority of our treacherous class of politicians slaps us around the ears with - apart from 'racism!' - it is .... sustainability.

THE THREE SEAS INITIATIVE, A REVIVAL OF MARSHAL PILSUDSKI'S OLD INTERMARIUM PROJECT.

First some background, via NewEasternEurope:


"The Intermarium strategy was developed in Poland as a political doctrine at the turn of the 20th century. It was an attempt to answer the general question on how to rebuild a sovereign Polish state and how to secure its future. The concept was innovative even if the purpose was not. The Poles alone, and Poland as a sole actor, wouldn’t be able to achieve such a goal. Poland’s enemies, especially Russia, were considered the main obstacle to independence and excessively powerful. The authors of the Intermarium strategy, Józef Piłsudski and his closest associates of the Polish Socialist Party, discovered the potential of nationalistic aspirations of other nations living within the Russian state. The idea was simple: to initiate a national revolt in a suitable moment and split Russia along national divisions. In such a way both major Polish goals would be fulfilled: independence and a secure future. Russia, if pushed from Europe and stripped of its conquest, would be annihilated as an empire and no longer pose a threat to the newly established states.

The first opportunity to turn Intermarium strategy into reality appeared at the outbreak of the war between Russia and Japan in 1904. Piłsudski submitted his political study and idea to the Japanese ministry of foreign affairs. But the Japanese did not take that proposal seriously. The second opportunity emerged at the end of the First World War, which left Poland’s partitioners (Russia, Germany and Austria) defeated. Russia was additionally crippled by the revolution and civil war. Piłsudski wanted to create a chain of sovereign nation states from the Baltic Sea up to the Black Sea including Poland, Lithuania (heirs of the Grand Duchy in its 18th century borders), Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia and some countries in the Caucasus. All these nations working together within a political bloc were supposed to fundamentally transform Eastern Europe and bring a new strategic balance not only to the region, but also to the whole Europe. It is evident that the Intermarium project was directed against Russian power. Such a bloc would also prevent Germany from rebuilding its imperial might in Europe. Finally, newly established countries would become good allies to the Western European powers.

For achieving his goal Piłsudski needed two preconditions: complete military defeat of Russia and deep co-operation of the nations involved in the project. Neither came into place. The Riga Peace Treaty (1921) was a disaster for the Intermarium concept. It sanctioned a de facto partition of Ukraine and Belarus between Russia and Poland as well as ruined the relations of Poland with the other countries in the region. No nation was willing at that time to recognise Polish political aspirations nor were they willing to replace one colonial power for another; all of the neighbors were afraid of Polish domination. Additionally, the West treated Polish ambitions and activities as unjustified expansion to the East. Russia, on the other hand, was humiliated by the war with Poland and abandoned by the old entente allies. It started to look for new friends, such as Germany. The alliance was profitable for both sides. However, this change of international balance was achieved at the expense of all the nations settled between Germany and Russia. The new war broke out in 1939 and after five terrible years Germany was defeated, but the Soviet Union celebrated victory. The Yalta agreement allowed the USSR to swallow the whole disputed region in its direct and indirect sphere of influences.

In the post-war era, Intermarium was deeply buried and censored. Outside of the region it was cultivated by Polish exiles, for instance by Jerzy Giedroyć and his magazine Kultura. Giedroyć once stated: “There can be no free Poland without free Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine.” What was important here was that Giedroyć abandoned the concept of Poland in its historic, Jagiellonian borders and stressed the value of equal co-operation among partners in every respect. In such a way he addressed the Eastern European nations’ pre-war fears of Polish domination.

This stance was supported and repeated by the Polish democratic opposition, which matured in the 1970s. In September 1981 the First National Conference of the Delegates of NSZZ “Solidarność” prepared a “Message to the working people of Eastern Europe”repeating Giedroyć’s position. The communist regimes were furious. The Soviet government treated the message as unauthorized interference into state policy. The Intermarium concept was still treated as a danger to Soviet rule over the region.

One could believe that after the dreams of many people in the region were realized and the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the Intermarium project would have been reintroduced. However the majority had another dream: to make a geopolitical shift from the East to the West. The first step was gaining independence from the Soviet Union through the disbanding of the Warsaw Pact and the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance. In this action all the countries of the region were loyal and supportive to each other. However, when it came to the negotiations with NATO and the European Union, solidarity disappeared. Nations were lodging separate applications; there was constant competition and individual negotiations. The weakness of the Intermarium was laid bare. It consisted in the differences between the goals of the potential partners. Whenever it came to deciding between solidarity and individual benefits, the latter always won – also within Visѐgrad Group. If the countries of a similar level of development were not able to reach any vital agreement, what can be said about the post-Soviet dependents like Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia and others?





Nevertheless, Intermarium existed as a slogan, especially in Poland, to which right-wing politicians frequently referred in their speeches. For instance, this could be visible in the parliamentary debates after the annual address by the minister of foreign affairs. One may ask: What was the reason for such empathy? That might not be solely the attachment to the tradition and glorious history, though this element should also be considered. Paraphrasing US President Donald Trump’s slogan, the Polish right was still attracted by the idea of “making Poland big again”. But how? They neither favoured sticking to the mainstream, nor promoting close co-operation with the most developed EU countries.

The answer could be seen in the parliamentary debate of 2013. Witold Waszczykowski who was then a deputy to the parliament stressed the need to “regain the role as spokesman of the region” and “rebuild the autonomous region, e.g. Carpathian”. His colleague Arkadiusz Mularczyk added that Poland should become a leader and a representative of Eastern and Central Europe within the EU. Thus, the essential role foreseen for Poland was to build its position by being a leader of an autonomous region. The will of some politicians is not always easily transformed into real action, however. And it certanily is not so easy to become the leader of a regional group.

When a new idea, the so-called Three Seas Initiative, appeared in 2015 and was followed by two summits (first in Dubrovnik in 2016 and second in Warsaw in 2017), the old Polish strategies began to once again emerge. The old questions were also being re-formulated: Does Poland still aspire to play the role of regional leader and want to use the newest initiative for its own purposes? What is the real reason for the 12 countries of Central and Eastern Europe, all members of the EU, to unite around some common goals?..."




In 2015, Pilsudski's old dream resurfaced, under the name Three Seas Initiative (3SI), a geopolitical joint project by Poland and Croatia:


"...It acts as a forum between twelve European countries to strengthen trade, energy, infrastructure and political cooperation. It is also known as the BABS Initiative as the member countries border with three European Seas - Baltic, Adriatic and Black Sea.

The Three Seas or BABS Initiative comprises of twelve Eastern and Central European countries. This includes Poland, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Estonia, Lithuania, Austria, Latvia, and Slovenia. Other than Austria, all the member countries were formerly Soviet-influenced communist countries and part of the former socialist group known as Eastern Bloc.

Six of these member countries, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia, are Central European Defence Cooperation (CEDC) countries. The CEDC was formed in 2010 with the objective of developing and strengthening defense cooperation between the member countries. Except Austria, all CEDC member countries are also part of NATO. Apart from that, four of its member countries, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, and Slovakia, are into a cultural and political alliance known as the Visegrad Group or Visegrad Four since 1991.

Interestingly, seven member countries of this project, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania, were part of the Intermarium plan of Jozef Pilsudski of Poland, who proposed a federation of Baltic States after the end of World War I.

The first summit of the Three Seas Initiative was held on the 25th and 26th of August, 2016 in Dubrovnik (Croatia). It was headed by the Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic. The member countries agreed on economic cooperation to strengthen economic activates, especially in the energy and infrastructure sector.





The Three Seas Business Forum was formed during the second summit of the initiative that was held on 6th and 7th July 2017 in Warsaw under the leadership of the Polish President, Andrzej Duda. This event was highly debated and highlighted internationally as it was attended by the American President Donald Trump.

The initiative provided a base for strategically important infrastructural projects, two of which stand prominently so far are the North-South Highway and the LNG Projects.

The North-South Highway project is part of the Three Seas Initiative. It will connect Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. The proposed route will connect Klaipeda, which is an important seaport of Lithuania, located on the coast of Baltic Sea, to Thessaloniki, one of the most important trade hubs in Southeastern Europe. It will also help boost trades with Poland by providing Eastern Poland with a north-south route to connect with Central Europe.

Poland and Croatia took the initiative of building Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals in the Baltic Sea to fulfill gas requirements of the member countries. Poland has completed its LNG terminal already, while Croatia is expected to complete its terminal by 2019. The construction of a pipeline for LNG is also part of the project...



Better pay attention to Eastern Europe. With potentially 150 million people, The Three Seas Initiative is set to become a geopolitical power to be reckoned with. Once again, the spoiled, deluded nations of Western Europe find themselves cushioned from Eastern dangers by, if not a Polish buffer, then in any case a Polish-doctored buffer, for it is Poland which is the main inspiration and instigator of this novel project.

There may be another reason to rejoice - while Western Europe will, over the next decades, in all likelihood drown in islamization and insane unchequered Third World immigration, the Three Seas Initiative, composed of the far saner Eastern European countries, may very well escape that terrible fate.

In more than one way, 3SI may become to the Western World what Byzantium was to the whole of the Roman Empire: a place where the immensely valuable assets of a great culture, material and immaterial, will be preserved from harm and decay for a thousand years to come.

LIGO, VIRGO GRAVITATIONAL WAVE OBSERVATORIES POSSIBLY DETECT BLACK HOLE SWALLOWING UP NEUTRON STAR.

Over at Science News, a fascinating article dealing with the possible discovery of a Black Hole swallowing a neutron star:






By Emily Conover

AUGUST 15, 2019 AT 6:06 PM

Shudders in the cosmos have revealed what’s likely the sad end of a neutron star — getting swallowed by a black hole.

If confirmed, it would be the first solid detection of this source of gravitational waves, revealing a type of cataclysm never before spotted. Researchers from the LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave observatories reported the candidate event, which was detected August 14, in a public database used by astronomers.

Scientists are still analyzing the data to verify what created the gravitational waves, which are tiny vibrations in spacetime caused by massive, accelerating objects. But one thing seems fairly certain: “Something has occurred out there in the sky,” says physicist Daniel Holz of the University of Chicago, a member of LIGO. “So far, it doesn’t obviously look like anything we’ve detected with high confidence before.”

LIGO and Virgo previously have picked up gravitational waves from pairs of merging black holes and from colliding neutron stars, which are extremely dense collapsed stars (SN: 1/19/19, p. 10). In April, scientists saw tentative hints of a rendezvous between a black hole and neutron star, but the signal was weak and could have been a false alarm (SN Online: 5/2/19).

This new discovery offers much more solid evidence: The detection was so clear that it’s considered very unlikely to be a false alarm. The researchers estimate that the run-in between the two objects occurred around 900 million light-years away, and within an area about 23 square degrees across the sky. (For comparison, the moon is about half a degree across.) Astronomers have since been peering at that region with their telescopes, looking for any light that may have been emitted in the merger. Such light could have been released if the neutron star were torn apart by the black hole before being gulped within its depths.

Further study of the encounter could help reveal new secrets about some of the universe’s most mysterious objects. But the potential detection is exciting on its own, Holz says. “The first of anything is always really fascinating.”



A quick recap of some key notions:



a.) A neutron star:

If a star right before going Supernova still has a mass of between ten and twenty solar masses, the core that remains after the explosion is a neutron star. Whilst weighing around 1.4 solar masses, its diameter is only about 20 kilometers, which means that one spoonful of that neutron star weighs about 1 billion tonnes!





b.) A Black Hole:

If the mass of the star before going Supernova was over 20 solar masses the remaining core may exceed 5 M☉, and from about 3–4 M☉ (the Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkoff limit), the degeneracy pressure of neutrons which otherwise stops neutron stars from imploding into themselves, is now insufficient to stop further collapse. A black hole is born.





While we are at it, fun quiz: what would happen if you fell into a black hole?





c.) LIGO:

LIGO stands for Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. It is a large-scale physics experiment involving two observatories to detect cosmic gravitational waves and to develop gravitational-wave observations as an astronomical tool. Laser interferometry is used to detect gravitational waves. LIGO can detect a change in the 4 km mirror spacing of less than a ten-thousandth the charge diameter of a proton. There is an observatory in Hanford, Washington and one in Livingston, Texas.


d.) Virgo:

Virgo is LIGO's European couterpart, a large interferometer designed to detect gravitational waves. Virgo is a Michelson interferometer is isolated from external disturbances: its mirrors and instrumentation are suspended and its laser beam operates in a vacuum. The instrument's two arms are three kilometres long and located in Santo Stefano a Macerata, near Pisa, Italy. Godammit! We spent our summer holiday in Tuscany and of course we had to go see Pisa and its slanted tower and duomo and baptisterio. If I had known that Virgo was just around the corner, I definitely would have taken a look!






I can't for the love of God fathom what kind of a big gulp a black hole gobbling up a neutron star must give. Lucky are those with the smarts and the tools to explore these inimaginable phenomena.

Horrible images from Lesbos, a Greek island. I can't even say that the floodgates are open again, because it is crystal clear they were never really closed in the first place:





As for Med crossings, it's bad enough that Salvini's gamble failed and that the 5 Star Movement and Partito Democratico are now poised to form a government leaving Lega in the cold - which would mean that Italy's ports will reopen again for the deluge of African 'refugees'. And if you doubt that a 5 Star/PD government would do that, watch the following interview with a PD ("center left") Senator:





But even without the thousands 'saved' twenty miles off the Libyan coast and transported up north per the wallet of the gullible EU taxpayer, many also cross the Med on their own, and succeed in reaching Europe's soft underbelly. They go ashore... and disappear, only to pop up weeks later in Berlin, Frankfurt, Brussels or Paris and wreak havoc there:





These are absolutely very, very, very dire times. The whole of the West is now under assault from the Third World. The time is approaching when violence against those who are behind the massive human trafficking schemes must be considered as a real but, unfortunately, necessary option.

We cannot let them turn our beautiful countries in islamic/Third World hellholes. If we do not act, then this will be our future: Just a street in Stockholm, Sweden:

RECOMMENDED READS: MATT RIDLEY'S "THE MOST DANGEROUS THING ABOUT THE AMAZON FIRES IS THE APOCALYPTIC RHETORIC."

Probably the best article last week to destroy the Amazon fire nonsense came from the pen - keyboard - of Matt Ridley over at The Spectator:


"Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese expert on forests who also plays football, so when he shared a picture online of a recent forest fire in the Amazon, it went viral. Perhaps he was in a rush that day to get out of the laboratory to football training, because it later transpired that the photograph was actually taken in 2013, not this year, and in southern Brazil, nowhere near the Amazon.

But at least his picture was only six years old. Emmanuel Macron, another forest ecologist who moonlights as president of France, claimed that ‘the Amazon rainforest — the lungs which produce 20 per cent of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire!’ alongside a picture that was 20 years old. A third bioscientist, who goes under the name of Madonna and sings, capped both their achievements by sharing a 30-year-old picture.

Now imagine if some celebrity — Donald Trump, say, or Nigel Lawson — had shared a picture of a pristine tropical forest with the caption ‘Amazon rainforest’s doing fine!’ and it had turned out to be decades old or from the wrong area. The BBC’s ‘fact-checkers’ would have been all over it, seizing the opportunity to mock, censor and ostracise.

In fact, ‘Amazon rainforest’s doing fine’ is a lot closer to the truth than ‘Amazon rainforest — the lungs which produce 20 per cent of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire!’. The forest is not on fire. The vast majority of this year’s fires are on farmland or already cleared areas, and the claim that the Amazon forest produces 20 per cent of the oxygen in the air is either nonsensical or wrong depending on how you interpret it (in any case, lungs don’t produce oxygen). The Amazon, like every ecosystem, consumes about as much oxygen through respiration as it produces through photosynthesis so there is no net contribution; and even on a gross basis, the Amazon comprises less than 6 per cent of oxygen production, most of which happens in the ocean.

But it is the outdated nature of the pictures shared by celebs that is most revealing, because the number of fires in Brazil this year is more than last year, but about the same as in 2016 and less than in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2012. For most of those years, Brazil’s president was a socialist, not a right-wing populist, so in BBC-world those fires did not count. More significantly, the rate of deforestation in the Amazon basin is down by 70 per cent since 2004."








""Around the world, wild fires are generally declining, according to Nasa. Deforestation, too, is happening less and less. The United Nations’ ‘state of the world’s forests’report concluded last year that ‘the net loss of forest area continues to slow, from 0.18 per cent [a year] in the 1990s to 0.08 per cent over the last five-year period’. A study in Nature last year by scientists from the University of Maryland concluded that even this is too pessimistic: ‘We show that — contrary to the prevailing view that forest area has declined globally — tree cover has increased by 2.24 million km2 (+7.1 per cent relative to the 1982 level).’"




Lula da Silva was Brazilian President from 2003 till the end of 2010. Forest fires of the same scale as now or worse were normal during his Presidency. The absence of outrage then only makes sense when you consider that this moral standard bearer, see above, is a socialist.



"Possibly the biggest driver of this encouraging trend is the rising productivity of agriculture. The more yields increase, the less land we need to steal from nature to feed ourselves. Jesse Ausubel of Rockefeller University has calculated that the world needs only 35 per cent as much land to produce a given quantity of food as 50 years ago. That has spared wild land on a massive scale.

Likewise, getting people on to fossil fuels and away from burning wood for fuel spares trees. It is in the poorest countries, mainly in Africa, that men and women still gather firewood for cooking and bushmeat for food, instead of using electricity or gas and farmed meat.

The trouble with the apocalyptic rhetoric is that it can seem to justify drastic but dangerous solutions. The obsession with climate change has slowed the decline of deforestation. An estimated 700,000 hectares of forest has been felled in South-East Asia to grow palm oil to add to supposedly green ‘bio-diesel’ fuel in Europe, while the world is feeding 5 per cent of its grain crop to motor cars rather than people, which means 5 per cent of cultivated land that could be released for forest. Britain imports timber from wild forests in the Americas to burn for electricity at Drax in North Yorkshire, depriving beetles and woodpeckers of their lunch..."

FORGOTTEN VALOR FRIDAY.

Time to start a new gig. For fourteen years I have looked with envy at CDR Salamander's Fullbore Friday, and over the past couple of years I began to think of doing something similar on this here humble blog... but with an emphasis on Belgian Army personalities. I will readily admit that the decision to limit myself to what is in effect a small 'demographic' is that, as a keen reader of history, I have always felt that same history has not been especially nice to our military. As a result, public perception, not in the know about a topic that most find generally boring, even when 'martial' countries are involved, has easily accepted the paradigm that Belgian military prowess is nonexistant at worst, and deserving of being the butt of many jokes at best. This new series is meant to provide another view, a view that is, in my opinion, long overdue.

Mark Felton's got a very well made and instructive video on the first person in what I hope will be a long-lived feature here on DowneastBlog. Ladies and Gentlemen, here is Baron Jean Michel P.M.G. de Selys Longchamps, DFC, who during a daring raid in JAN 1943 raided the Gestapo HQ in Brussels with his Hawker Typhoon:





Only eight months after the attack, in the night of AUG 15/16 1943, Captain-demoted-PO for the unauthorized raid Jean de Selys Longchamps flew a mission over Ostend. Hit heavily by flak, he flew back over the Channel only to find out that his landing gear malfunctioned. Upon touching down on Manston airfield's runway his Typhoon crashed and broke in two. The Baron was killed instantly. He was buried with full military honors in Minster-in-Thanet.




Forgotten valor.

JOYS OF MULTICULTURALISM ON FULL DISPLAY IN NEUKOELLN, BERLIN.




Neukoelln, huh?

What a coincidence:


"In Berlin’s Neukölln borough, police conducted raids in Shisha bars and apartments last night. Prosecutors were on site as well. This latest activity was part of the efforts to fight organized crime in Berlin.

A big part of organized crime in Neukölln and other Berlin boroughs is being attributed to Arab family clans. In the past months, the authorities have vowed to fight these clans more. On a regular basis, they raid businesses owned by those families and apartments.

Prosecutors on Site

In this case, 150 police officers were involved in the raids in Neukölln on Thursday. Late last night, Kreuzberg, a neighboring Berlin district, was supposed to be included as well. Prosecutors on site were collecting evidence. The same applied to tax investigators and the regulatory agency.

The police operation was being conducted in several phases. First, officers concentrated on Hermannplatz, a square between Neukölln and Kreuzberg which is a known hot sport for drug dealing and other kinds of crime.

In the evening, police started stopping cars on Sonnenallee and Hermannstraße. Here they mainly targeted drivers of expensive vehicles who keep on showing them off by racing up and down the street. Some of those checked might be part of the criminal clans Berlin is increasingly fighting. The operation lead to traffic jams.







Upping the Ante

The third phase started later in the evening, when police raided Shisha bars and other businesses owned by the Arab clans or their associates. It was not the first time establishments of this kind were targeted by police. Upping the ante is what Berlin intends to do.

For years, the Arab clans have posed a big problem. Their members do not recognize the authority of the German police or the state. They reportedly have their hands in all kinds of crime, including drugs and money laundering.

The clans wage war against each other too. Last a year, a member of one of the largest family clans was murdered in Tempelhof. Only a week ago, dozens of police officers raced towards Fuldastraße in Neukölln, where a big argument between clan members had erupted. One man was brutally attacked. An criminal stuck a knife into his back and injured him badly.

Out of Control

Berlin is intensifying the fight against the dangerous Arab clans. In addition to Neukölln and Kreuzberg, the authorities intend to get busy in several other boroughs as well, where the situation with the clans seems to have gotten out of control too.

The clans are being fought on several levels. For instance the tax authorities are looking for irregularities which might be a symptom of tax evasion or money laundering. In the meantime, the police secure evidence during their raids. Stopping expensive cars might lead to chance hits at times.

Berlin wants to add a new division to its regulatory agency in order to be able to check more businesses for illegal activity. The municipality believes this step will put the clans under more pressure.

In April, police had launched one of the largest anti-clan raids to date, involving hundreds of police officers. Back then, Berlin’s Interior Senator Andreas Geisel had vowed to continue fighting, for years to come."

HOW THE COMBO HUMAN TRAFFICKERS/NGO'S CONSPIRED TO FLOOD EUROPE WITH ILLEGALS.

Via GEFIRA again, but caveat, this is a 2016 animation. It exposes the gigantic scam that is the 'rescue mission' by a plethora of NGO's often in collaboration with European governments.

Of course, this was before Italy's (former) Foreign Minister forbade the NGO's to drop their human cargo in Italian ports.

Italy's Salvini played a somewhat dangerous game this week by blowing up the government in an attempt to get rid of Conte. I suspect we may see new elections in the foreseeable future and we must hope that Salvini did not overplay his hand and that his apparent bid to become the next PM will be successful.



"For two months, using marinetraffic.com, we have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs. Using data from data.unhcr.org., we have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we were witness to a big scam and an illegal human traffic operation.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 miles away from the rescue spot...."






See also:





"The Dutch, Maltese and German based NGOs are part of the human smuggling network and one wonders, are these NGOs themselves criminal organisations.

Whatever the motives of these NGOs, their behaviour is illegal, and in countries governed by a constitution, i.e. European states, crime should be prosecuted regardless of the intention of its perpetrators.

We followed the movements of the Golfo Azzurro on 12 October (2016). We used AIS Marine Traffic signals, twitter and the live reports of a Dutch journalist on board of the Golfo Azzurro.

On the evening of 12 October at 21:15, 113 people were picked up 8.5 nautical miles off the Libyan Mellitah Complex, by four NGO ships; the Phoenix, the Astral, the Iuventa and the Golfo Azzurro. At that moment these four ships were within the territorial waters of Libya.
During this transport, 17 persons were reported missing, including a three-year-old child.

Wednesday 12 October eight o’clock in the morning, the Italian coast guard informed the Golfo Azzurro about the coming “rescue” operation, 10 to 12 hours in advance; they directed the Golfo Azzurro to a location within the Libyan territorial waters. Eveline Rethmeier, a Dutch journalist, was on board of the Golfo Azzurro. At 20:23 (UTC time 18:23) she posted a video were ‘Chief of the Mission’ Mateo told the crew something was coming. In her blog she wrote: “At eight o’clock in the morning we got the messages that there is a ship with problems 30 nautical miles away from us. The Italian coast guard asked assistance in the area. We were briefed by ‘Chief of the Mission’ Mateo. He told us that we should be prepared for guests."...

BARCELONA IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 2019...




In other news, German Lunatic-in-Chief Angela Merkel expressed the desire to implement yet another "Sophia Plan". Originally, the first "Sophia Plan" was meant to combat human trafficking. In the end, it resulted in EU Ships under the aegis of Frontex ferrying over 50,000 illegals across the Med:


"German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday called for the resumption of European naval missions to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean.

Since 2015, tens of thousands of migrants were rescued by European naval ships as part of the bloc's anti-smuggling "Operation Sophia," which suspended activity earlier this year.

"It would certainly be good if today we had Operation Sophia and national navies that would carry out rescues," Merkel said in Berlin. She added that it would help with rescuing migrants as well as combating trafficking.

On Tuesday, Merkel also spoke out in support of sea rescues during a panel discussion in northern Germany, calling them "a humanitarian imperative," according to the newspapers of the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland."



The words of Das Gespenst will not fall on deaf ears, as millions of welfare seekers stand poised to jump to Europe. The combo human traffickers/Frontex is eagerly waiting for the green light to bring about Europe's downfall.

THE JOYS OF MULTICULTURALISM: BARBARIC STREET BRAWL BETWEEN MUSLIM FAMILIES IN BIRMINGHAM, UK.

Via The Daily Mail, August 17, 2019:


"A 'barbaric' street brawl between 'two feuding families' erupted after a week of bad blood sparked by a 'wedding argument'.

Savage punches were thrown and an elderly man put a youngster in a headlock in shocking footage from the daytime incident in Aston, Birmingham.

But fresh footage now shows young thugs were also armed with hammers, huge metal poles and baseball bats as they joined the 30-man melee on Prestbury Road at 5.30pm on Thursday.

The shocking scene sees one youngster - wearing a white puffer jacket - wielding a claw hammer as he walks towards the fight.

Another carries a metre-long metal pole and is seen wildly swinging at those in the brawl.

But the youths appear to lose their nerve and towards the end of the clip and retreat behind a parked Honda Civic.

Yet as they move away, older thugs brandishing baseball bats and batons clamber over other fighters to try to get a better shot at their foes.

A later clip shows a female police officer desperately try to keep the two groups apart as sirens whir in the background.

She is joined by two other officers and a paramedic on the scene.

Police were reportedly called back to Prestbury Road at 9pm following reports of a stabbing. But no victim was found.

When the footage first emerged on Friday the reason for the fallout was unclear.

But now it has been claimed the fight came after a bitter argument between two women at a wedding last week.

A source told MailOnline the row, outside houses worth around £140,000, hit boiling point on Thursday, which led to young members of the warring families fighting before being joined by men.

The source added that 'every one in the video are related and it was a family feud'.

He described the scene as 'barbaric', adding: 'even a little kid was carrying a metal bar'.

Footage shows screaming women crowd around and try to put themselves between the men as they land heavy punches...."

UK: SOLAR, WINDMILLS OUT, RETURN TO NUCLEAR ENERGY?

Via The Mirror, August 12, 2019:


"A series of mini-nuclear reactors could be built across the North in a major power scheme.

Plants could generate energy in Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire and Cheshire under a project spearheaded by Rolls-Royce for “small modular reactors”.


The Government is pumping in £18million so the firm can develop the design of the reactors.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to formally announce the plan in September and the first plant could be up and running within the next 15 years.

“These new mini nuclear reactors would be concentrated across the North — and plans are in motion to place them in the Sheffield city region, Cumbria, Lancashire and Cheshire,” a Government source told the Times.

“Nuclear is clean and a way of reducing the UK’s carbon footprint on a large scale.”

The reactors would trigger a jobs bonanza, with 40,000 posts expected to be created.

Each power station could generate enough energy to fuel 750,000 homes, according to estimates by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

Northern Powerhouse Partnership director Henri Murison said: “There is market ready technology available globally which can be put together with the UK supply chain, with us having what is needed to build them here in the Northern Powerhouse alongside investing in a large factory which this support will help us to achieve.

“Work undertaken by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre has shown what can be achieved; ensuring that we build up our capabilities and all the resulting economic benefits of the jobs being here in making them.

“Our upcoming energy industrial strategy for the Northern Powerhouse will focus heavily on SMRs, fulfilling the promise of when George Osborne back in 2015 committed the funds to establish the UK as a leader in what was then an emerging area globally.”





Supporters say nuclear power is clean, efficient and renewable.

But critics believe it is too expensive, takes too long to clean up and the risks involved are too great.

Rolls-Royce’s website says: “At every point in the development of our UK SMR solution, we have sought to take a modular approach to drive down the cost of electricity to as low as practically possible, whilst at the same time building in multiple layers of fault prevention and protection to make sure the technology is safe in all modes of operation.”

But scientist Dr Ian Fairlie, of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, said: “The grandiose safety claims made about SMRs are reminiscent of false claims about nuclear power in the 1950s when it was said electricity would become too cheap to meter.

“SMRs are still vulnerable to nuclear accidents, terror attacks, and can produce more nuclear waste than conventional reactors per unit of electricity.”

Sheffield City Region mayor Dan Jarvis said: “The Sheffield City Region is superbly placed to support the development of small modular reactors technology.

"We can play a leading role in meeting the challenges of climate change while helping to keep the lights on.”

French firm EDF is building a £20billion nuke plant at Hinkley Point in Somerset."




Here's a brief technical overview, per the Rolls Royce website:






"A three loop, close-coupled, Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR)
provides a power output at circa 400-450 MWe from 1200-
1350 MWth using industry standard UO2 fuel. Coolant is
circulated via three centrifugal Reactor Coolant Pumps (RCPs)
to three corresponding vertical u-tube Steam Generators
(SGs). The design includes multiple active and passive safety
systems, each with substantial internal redundancy.Rapid, certain and repeatable reactor and overall power
station build is enhanced through site layout and maximising
modular build, standardisation and commoditisation. The UK
SMR design is illustrated below. The three loop reactor (Figure
1) is located in Nuclear Island, shown in red, adjacent to
Turbine Island, shown in yellow, with the Cooling Water Pump
House following, shown in blue (Figure 2). These facilities are
protected by a robust hazard shield. Support buildings and
those containing auxiliary services are situated within a berm
that sweeps around the site and provides further protection
from external hazards, e.g. tsunami or aircraft impact."





The reactor pressure vessel is of course the downmost cilinder in the centre. The pressurizer is the one slightly above it. The three cilinders arrayed around and above it are the Steam Generators. Here the water from the primary circuit, typically 315°C hot but held at 155bar to prevent boiling, transfers its heat to the secondary circuit water. This water, at "only" 60 bars, does start boiling. Its steam is then fed into turbines which in turn propel the generators, whence electrity is fed to the grid. A gif to refreshen your memory:





Anyway, Rolls Royce's SMR looks very much like the Chinese Hualong One design:




I'm a bit disappointed that the Rolls Royce design is apparently still a good old PWR reactor using classing Uranium Dioxide as fuel, and not a Molten Salt reactor. These use the relatively abundant Thorium-232 as the fertile material (the Th232 is transmuted, by shooting a neutron in it, in U-233, which is a good nuclear fuel), and have the advantage of producing less long-life term radioactive waste. Perhaps the costs of developing a reactor suited for a Thorium fuel cycle was considered too high. Perhaps there's still an echo of Cold War reasoning behind this continued UO2 and MOX preference. I don't know. Either way, reliance on this type of reactors is far more realistic than putting your bets on solar and windmills.

CERBERUS 2.0 SOFTWARE TOOL PREDICTS IMPLOSION OF DUTCH NATIVE POPULATION IN A FEW DECADES.

The GEFIRA Foundation has used the Cerberus 2.0 software tool to project the evolution of Dutch demographics and the resulting numbers are shocking - especially so for "BioDutch":


"A change in demographic trends takes 50 years before they become plainly visible. The decline in fertility in the sixties started to become visible after 50 years. Cerberus, our population simulator, shows with scientific precision that the replacement of the European society has started, and within 50 years it will be visible and irreversible.

Since the seventies of the previous century, the Western societies have not produced enough offspring to keep their communities growing. The fertility rate (i.e. the average number of children per woman) is far below 2.1. i.e. the level of replacement. A population with a higher rate will grow while a population with a lower rate will shrink. As it is, the Western and Japanese societies will begin to implode 40 years from the moment their fertility rate dropped, and this demographic winter, as this phenomenon is sometimes called, will affect the world more profoundly than the climate change, so politicians and investors should take notice.

According to official state data the Swedish, French and Dutch populations will keep growing for the foreseeable future despite their low fertility rates. Western politicians seem to be taking great pleasure in the population decline in Russia, but shouldn’t they first bother about their own turf? How e.g. is it possible that the number of residents in the Netherlands keeps growing if the number of the newborns is smaller and smaller?

To get an insight into the European situation the Gefira team developed Cerberus 2.0, a software tool that, using copious amounts of demographic data provided by the Central Bureau of Statistics, simulates the population development.

Cerberus, making use of the CBS Dutch Central Bureau of Statistics data, calculates how many people died and were born for every consecutive year from 1950 till 2100 and then creates a hypothetical Dutch population growth model without migration. This model overlaps with the official data up to 1980 (blue line in Figure 1 below). In the sixties, the Netherlands had an emigration surplus, i.e. more people left the country than arrived, while in the seventies the so-called mass immigration set in and the process was reversed.





A couple of years of immigration has no visible effect, which is why many immigration advocates argue that 50.000 arrivals against a population of 14 million, (i.e. 0.3 percent) is negligible. This is only true if it is a one-time event. If it happens year after year, it brings about a structural change of a population.

The cumulative effect of immigration became visible in the data after 10 years in 1980. The total population in the Netherlands grew according to the official CBS data (green line) much faster than the native population calculated by Cerberus (blue line). The native Dutch population reached a peak around 2015 at 15 million people, while the total number of inhabitants according to the CBS was 17 million and growing. The Dutch society will stay more or less stable with 18 million until 2060, the final year of the CBS projection. Cerberus on the other hand shows that in 2015 the Dutch population started to decline rapidly and in 2060 there will be 12 million Dutch left while at the end of the century there will only be 9 million native Dutch. The Dutch natives will become a minority. Due to demographic inertia it takes a long period before changes in fertility and migration are felt. We remind the reader that the Dutch fertility rate started to drop in the sixties and went below the point of replacement in 1973. Since then it will have taken more than 42 years before the Dutch native population starts to decline. The inevitable replacement of the people of Europe at the end of this century is already set in motion and we believe that after 2030 this process is irreversible.

We use Cerberus to calculate how many migrants are needed to keep the Dutch population stable at 18 million. We input into Cerberus the 1950 population and, starting in 1971, added 15%, 20% and 25% immigration-related growth. Our model showed that the population stabilized with a 25% extra growth, that is about 45 thousand immigrants annually, around 18 million people, which overlaps with the CBS projection

Cerberus proves that the Netherlands needs 45 thousand immigrants to meet the official projections of the CBS. The CBS data is the basis for governmental planning. The Dutch planners keep the mass-immigration unchanged for the foreseeable future instead of anticipating a sharp drop in population. Apparently, the Dutch establishment opts for the replacement of the Dutch society.


To perceive the consequence of the continuation of mass-immigration, one has to take a closer look at the population growth. When more immigrant children are born than those of Dutch natives the effect is not immediately visible, migrants will still be a minority of the total population but inevitably the Dutch will become a minority within that generation. To see how the growth of the Dutch population evolves we divided it into three components:

The steadily decreasing number of newborn native Dutch;
The steadily increasing number of non-native newborns;
A constant number of incoming immigrants.
These components are shown in Figure 2.

In 2060 50% of the growth in the Netherlands will be non-Western newborns (orange) and immigrants (red), and around 2070 50% of all newborns (orange) are non-native Dutch. From there it takes a further 25 years before the natives are a minority. The Cerberus projections are very optimistic as they assume the native fertility rate at 1.66. According to our separate calculation the real current native-Dutch fertility rate is much lower and close to 1.5. Cerberus shows that the next decades are crucial for the survival of the Dutch population. In 2060 we will cross the Rubicon and reach the point of no return, the Dutch will be inevitably replaced with a non-Western society. But in 2035, 17 years from now, the total growth of the non-Dutch population in the Netherlands will already be a shocking 42%. Measures to increase the fertility are rather counterproductive and will probably only increase the fertility rate of non-Western immigrants. It is said that in the seventies and eighties immigrant families with 6 kids were able to live on the child benefit.

Since the demographic decline is observable in all Western countries, we are in for Europeans being gradually replaced by peoples from Africa or South Asia. We are now at the eleventh hour and if we do not put an immediate stop to all immigration, the Dutch society will vanish into thin air."



Computer models are computer models and prone to serious flaws. Unforeseen circumstances can happen down the road which may affect the outcome of these dreadful projections. Yet, given that demographic evolution behave like massive oil tankers that cannot be turned around at a moment's notice, and that the trend of declining fertility among native Dutchmen and -women is a decades-old phenomenon, it is hard to escape the conclusion that IF the evolution sketched above has to be stopped, something drastic better happen soon. VERY soon.


Naturally, the story of The Netherlands, current pop. about 17 and a half million, is but a study in microcosm of the greater European picture. To varying degrees, EVERY European country suffers from the same predicament. The adamant refusal of the Spanish and Italian women to bear children is even far more outspoken than in Holland. UK, France, Belgium etc, same story.

And what are the consequences of this immoral, ignorant, materialistic attitude?

The very harsh treatment of the Yellow Vests acquires an even more sombre dimension when compared with the kid gloves treatment others receive, namely Antifa and muslims. Via Gatestone Institute:


"... Paris, Champs-Élysées. July 14. Bastille Day. Just before the military parade begins, President Emmanuel Macron comes down the avenue in an official car to greet the crowd. Thousands of people gathered along the avenue shout "Macron resign", boo and hurl insults.

At the end of the parade, a few dozen people release yellow balloons into the sky and distribute leaflets saying "The yellow vests are not dead." The police disperse them, quickly and firmly. Moments later, hundreds of "Antifa" anarchists arrive, throw security barriers on the roadway to erect barricades, start fires and smash the storefronts of several shops. The police have a rough time mastering the situation, but early in the evening, after a few hours, they restore the calm.

A few hours later, thousands of young Arabs from the suburbs gather near the Arc de Triomphe. They have apparently come to "celebrate" in their own way the victory of an Algerian soccer team. More storefronts are smashed, more shops looted. Algerian flags are everywhere. Slogans are belted out: "Long live Algeria", "France is ours", "Death to France". Signs bearing street names are replaced by signs bearing the name of Abd El Kader, the religious and military leader who fought against the French army at the time of the colonization of Algeria. The police limit themselves to stemming the violence in the hope that it will not spread.

Around midnight, three leaders of the "yellow vest" movement come out of a police station and tell a TV reporter that they were arrested early that morning and imprisoned for the rest of the day. Their lawyer states that they did nothing wrong and were just "preventively" arrested. He emphasizes that a law passed in February 2019 allows the French police to arrest any person suspected of going to a demonstration; no authorization from a judge is necessary and no appeal possible.

On Friday, July 19, the Algerian soccer team wins again. More young Arabs gather near Arc de Triomphe to "celebrate" again. The damage is even greater than eight days before. More police show up; they do almost nothing.

On July 12, two days before Bastille Day, several hundred self-declared African illegal migrants enter the Pantheon, the monument that houses the graves of heroes who played major roles in the history of France. There, the migrants announce the birth of the "Black Vest movement". They demand the "regularization" of all illegal immigrants on French territory and free housing for each of them. The police show up but decline to intervene. Most of the demonstrators leave peacefully. A few who insult the police are arrested..."






This loathsome, sexually ambiguous, barren midget, who typically spends around 26,000 EUR per three months on toiletries, wellness and his general façade, has no qualms about firing rubber bullets and tear gas into crowds of desperate Frenchmen and -women who simply cannot take any more taxes, but in the best Vichy tradition he's deaf and blind vis-à-vis the violence and terrorist acts of Antifa thugs and muslims.

Anyway, take again a good, hard look at the disfigured faces in the photos above... (no, I don't mean that scoundrel's visage)

... then you will know what Macron really needs a European Army for.

Just a reminder...

Imagine, if you will, that President Trump, who is already called a nazi, would have ordered police to take on protesters the Macron way.
