Researchers Discover Plastic Fibres Found In Tap Water Around The World

Published

on

Water is life, but you wouldn’t know that after witnessing what’s happening around the world, and what happened with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota this year. We’re destroying our environment and constantly releasing harmful toxins into the veins of Mother Earth, who can only take so much.

We have the ability and the technology to clean up our water systems and start producing our products and energy in clean green ways, but industry corruption and red-tape prolong the process. At the same time, disease rates are rising at an exponential rate, and it’s clear that multiple factors could be contributing to this, including a lack of access to clean healthy water, on a global scale.

A new investigation conducted by Orb Media, who shared their findings exclusively with The Guardian, had tap water samples from more than a dozen nations around the world analyzed by scientists, and they found that a shocking 83 percent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

The scientists discovered that European nations had the lowest contamination rate. Despite that, it was still high at 72%. European nations that were tested include the UK, Germany and France.

On the other hand, the US had the highest rate of contamination, at a staggering 94%. Plastic fibres were found in the drinking water of Trump Tower in New York, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s headquarters, and at multiple other sites, including Congress buildings.

This is a huge problem, and microplastic contamination is now extremely widespread. Our oceans are littered with plastic, which is killing whales and other marine mammals, and contaminating fish. Previous studies have shown when people eat seafood, they are also eating high levels of microplastics, not to mention taking in a lot of mercury as well. (See The World Mercury Project)

Dr. Sherri Mason, a microplastic expert at the State University of New York in Fredonia, who supervised the analyses for Orb, told the Guardian:

“We have enough data from looking at wildlife, and the impacts that it’s having on wildlife, to be concerned. If it’s impacting wildlife, then how do we think that it’s not going to somehow impact us?”

The piece goes on to site another study conducted in Ireland, where research also found a great deal of microplastic contamination in a number of water and well samples. According to the Guardian, Dr. Anne Marie Mahon, the lead other of that study, said there were two concerns here:

“If the fibres are there, it is possible that the nanoparticles are there too that we can’t measure. Once they are in the nanometre range they can really penetrate a cell and that means they can penetrate organs, and that would be worrying.”

A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) a few years ago found that approximately 90 percent of the Earth’s ocean surface is polluted with plastic debris. The study was conducted by scientists from the University of Cadiz, Spain as well as the University of Western Australia.

The study is based off of 3,070 total ocean samples that were collected all around the globe, and the total amount of plastic in the open-ocean surface is estimated to be between approximately 7,000 and 35,000 tons. Although this amount is huge, scientists were surprised as it is much lower than the amount they expected.

The thing about microplastics is that they can attract large amounts of bacteria that’s actually found in sewage. According to Mahon, “some studies have shown there are more harmful pathogens on microplastics downstream of wastewater treatment plants.”

The Guardian lays it out well, and this is definitely something to pay attention to because the scale of global microplastic contamination is literally insane.

“Microplastics are also known to contain and absorb toxic chemicals and research on wild animals shows they are released in the body. Prof Richard Thompson, at Plymouth University, UK, told Orb: “It became clear very early on that the plastic would release those chemicals and that actually, the conditions in the gut would facilitate really quite rapid release.” His research has shown microplastics are found in a third of fish caught in the UK.” 

Unfortunately it’s not just in water, it’s in our seafood, and it’s even found in beer, honey and sugar. Paris researchers in 2015 actually found microplastic samples falling from the air.

Is Bottled Water Any Better? 

Apparently not, this Orb study also found the same problem within bottled water, because, after all where does it come from? And what is it bottled in!

“We are increasingly smothering ecosystems in plastic and I am very worried that there may be all kinds of unintended, adverse consequences that we will only find out about once it is too late.” – Professor Roland Geyer to the Guardian, from the University of California and Santa Barbara, who led the study.

For more details, you can refer to this article: Study Finds More Than 24,000 Chemicals In Bottled Water: Which Ones Are Harming You? 

Solutions?

The best solution is to completely overhaul our planet, and start using clean and green biodegradable substances, like hemp. Secondly, we need to utilize and expand upon existing technologies that could help us clean up our oceans, and assist the Earth in her cleansing strategies, whatever they are.

For example, years ago we published a story of then 19-year old, Boyan Slat, who developed a cleanup array to remove more than 7 million tons of plastic from the Earth’s oceans.

We also recently published a study about how two young surfers are cleaning up the ocean. 

“It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry.” -Buck-minister Fuller.”

Navy ships could develop a method for locating and dragging nets for clean up, as various solutions exist that could be used and implemented.  I wish I had the answers, and could provide more solutions and information on how we could do this. I know that if the world’s ‘leaders’ came together and really wanted to pool their resources to clean up this planet, it could easily be done. Instead, they often pool their resources to destroy it for our materialistic wants.

The human race has become very detached from nature. We still don’t realize that our potential to create a world where everybody’s needs are provided for, where we live in balance with nature and all living things on the planet are infinite. We could easily utilize technology and human genius to live in a world where everybody can thrive, where we could take the human race out of its adolescence and into adulthood.

It can be done, and there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel. Our planet is currently experiencing a massive worldview transformation. We live in exciting times, so keep your head up, and be the change you wish to see in the world. It starts with you and your lifestyle.

 

I’ll leave you with this video from the photographer, Chris Jordan.

Trump Furious As New Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Allegation Emerges

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Trump angrily Tweets, calling our the "Radical Left" as new allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of Justice Kavanaugh emerge.

  • Reflect On:

    How are we to move forward as so many politically driven claims come forth like this? Are they true? Are they a ploy? Can we truly ever tell? Are we seeing more political battles or a wake-up call about the misconduct of people?

President Donald Trump has come out suggesting Brett Kavanaugh should sue for “libel” after a fresh sexual assault allegation has emerged against the Supreme Court justice in the New York Times. Trump initially misspelled the word “libel” as “liable” and this of course sent mass media into a frenzy.

In an op-ed published yesterday, New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly stated that in the midst of their research for their forthcoming book about Kavanaugh, they found a previously unreported allegation of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court justice.

According to both Kelly and Pogrebin, Yale student Max Stier had witnessed Kavanaugh pull down his pants at a dorm party and his friends then pushed his penis into an unnamed female classmate’s hand.

Stier reportedly told senators and the FBI about the incident during the investigation into the then-Supreme Court justice nominee last year during the Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford accusation trial. According to the Times op-ed, the FBI did not investigate Stier’s account.

Trump accused the “Radical Left” and news media of attempting to intimidate Mr. Kavanaugh with the new allegation.

“Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue. The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Since the new allegation on Kavanaugh, some have been calling for the impeachment of the Supreme Court Justice, the hashtag #impeachkavanugh has been trending on Twitter.

Multiple Angles

As we always say here at CE, not enough information about this has come to public access to make any complete statements. This certainly doesn’t stop most people from reacting extremely emotionally though, which sometimes you can’t blame people for when you look at the nature of some in high places, but at the same time reacting so emotionally often leads to issues we collectively could avoid by simply remaining calm and pursuing more information.

This, of course, is the design of our modern engineered rage culture, but this isn’t to say there isn’t truth to allegations like this, more so that creating rage, whether events are true or not, is what pulls society apart. This is the clear goal of those in power beyond government.

That said, it’s possible Kavanaugh is guilty in this case. While the Blasey Ford story in 2018 seemed to fall apart very quickly, including her witnesses, one cannot simply brush off new allegations. I do feel it is the responsibility of people and the media to be responsible and not move into a political rage as it often happens. I also feel honouring such allegations with a proper investigation is a necessary step in our current society.

On the Right, some might view this solely as a political ploy to create more chaos around Trump, this is not a bad observation as we have seen this so heavily with the hoaxed Russian Collusion investigation. It’s media ploys like that, which become proven false, that make it hard for people to then believe events that could be true.

On the Left, this story fits right into the rhetoric that has been building for years. The reality is, we have learned that many in high places are involved in inappropriate sexual acts. It simply appears though that we only want to see the truth of ones that fit our political beliefs and identity. For example, the DNC’s prized Clinton’s are highly implicated with Epstein’s pedo-ring, but that isn’t a convenient narrative for our beliefs, so let’s just stick to the Right and Kavanaugh being guilty.

Perhaps we can’t see the world clearly when we crowd our observation with identities and political sides?

The Takeaway

The CE protocol is what it is for a reason, it’s designed to help humanity evolve and find peace. This involves breaking the illusion of our reality, awakening neutrality within ourselves, deprogramming limits and living aligned with that state of being. In this case, if we do not break the illusion political sides place on us, we cannot expect to see the truth of our world.

Those on the Left and those on the Right will always fail to see the hidden hand above that works to engineer society into these divides and keep us disempowered both consciously and within society.

Marianne Williamson Admits “The System Is More Corrupt Than I Knew”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Marianne Williamson stated in an interview on Fox and Friends that she did not realize the political system was as corrupt as it is.

  • Reflect On:

    This is an important revelation of how leaders often don't quite see the full truth of our system at hand. Through them and their experience, we can learn a lot about what is truly going on. Is it time to let go of the systems we have?

About a week ago Marianne Williamson told the New Yorker, I know this sounds naïve, but I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this.” In a segment I did on CETV, I discussed the fact that Williamson is doing a great job of bringing a bit more of a conscious conversation into the mix here, which is very important, but seems to not quite understand what politics is really about and how things function in our world.

In my article about this statement I stated:

Some have suggested that Marianne already knows these truths, and she may, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she is only uncovering these things now. I say this as I belong to a group that communicates regularly that contains many high profile conscious industry leaders like Williamson and other big authors, speakers etc. Many of them are great with spirituality but seem to struggle to see how politics truly functions. I have witnessed this first hand and this is why I’m so passionate about what I do as I feel bringing together both personal transformation and hard truth is imperative.

Some felt that my analysis was off and that Williamson is just ‘playing naive,’ but to me, this did not feel true nor did it seem to be the case. While some might view this as an unimportant detail, it’s very important as for society to truly begin to shift we must not only personally transform but also realize the true nature of the world we live in.

As outlined in the CE Protocol, the formula I built to help awaken and shift the masses, the very first step is Breaking The Illusion about our programmed reality and understand what’s truly going on. From there, personal transformation becomes key.

Williamson Admits She Was Unaware

Here we are a week later and Williamson has stated what I observed in my previous segment, she did not quite realize how corrupt our political system truly is. In an interview on Fox and Friends Williamson stated:

“I would say that I feel that I’ve learned that the system is even more corrupt than I knew and people are even more wonderful than I hoped,

I want to state this isn’t about picking on anyone as much as it is about understanding the importance behind seeing the full picture of the change that needs to take place here. For 10 years now I have built CE to include both personal transformation and truth seeking for the reason that either one of those topics on their own doesn’t create the change we all know is possible in our hearts.

I’ve seen many ‘spiritual leaders’ still deeply support the dysfunctional nature of our systems because they believe there is truth to them when in reality they belong to a consciousness we are shifting away from.

Our political system is built and exists within a system designed for a very limited state of consciousness, some call this 3D consciousness. The goal isn’t to shift our political system, it’s to let it go. Collectively we are shifting and the new state of consciousness emerging doesn’t support the political system at hand. Hence why the chaos around it is increasing, because it’s acting as a mirror for us to see how it doesn’t resonate with our emerging consciousness.

It’s like trying to install Windows on a Mac or vice versa, the systems aren’t designed for the operating system. Humanity is faced with a challenge of ‘letting go of the old,’ not trying to fix the old.

In a brand new segment of The CE Show I did on YouTube and CETV, I discuss Marianne’s latest comments and what I feel we all must realize as we move forward in this journey of shifting ourselves and our world.

The CE Show airs multiple times per week on CETV. Membership proceeds from CETV go towards supporting our journalism and future broadcasts. You can start a free 7 day trial here.

The Takeaway

I feel that we have become addicted to the systems of a state of consciousness that we are moving away from. The choice is up to us, we stop resisting and holding onto things of the old, move through the process of watching these old systems fall away, or we continue to fight tooth and nail under the belief that we must hold up the old systems, and suffer along the way.

Ask yourself within, do you truly feel that this is about changing our current political system to be more open and evolved? Or is it about letting go of the rigidity of our current systems and creating new ones that are birthed from a  new state of consciousness, not one that is centuries old…

People Are Already Getting Arrested For Trying to “Storm Area 51”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Two Dutch boys have been arrested for trespassing on US government property near Area 51. The came to the US to join the 'Storm Area 51' mass action that was set to take place Sept. 20, 2019.

  • Reflect On:

    Is UFO culture building in a big way around the world? If so, is it building in a credible way, or one driven by pop culture and fun?

Since the disclosure of UFOs hit the media in 2018 with the revelation that the US Military had video footage of a UFO they had filmed during flight, the ever building culture of UFOlogy got another big boost. Birthed from that was a viral campaign aimed at encouraging people to “storm Area 51” so they could see what the government was hiding.

Before the event could even take place two men who travelled all the way from the Netherlands have already been arrested for trespassing on the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS). The NNSS is a government nuclear facility located about 10 miles away from Area 51.

The mass action event was originally scheduled for September 20th, but after months of controversy the organizers have decided to hold a festival called “Alien Stock” so enthusiasts could gather instead of ‘storm.’ The event was set to take place Sept 19th but as of today it appears to be cancelled. The latest flyer online seemed to show the event was sponsored by Bud Light, meaning this event was set to be fairly large.

Not everyone was enthusiastic about the event. Locals of the small town of Rachel, Nevada, where the event was set to take place, were not happy about thousands of UFO seekers coming to town. They were so upset that a warning was posted on the town’s website stating that local residents would defend their property by force if they had to, saying that “the situation could get ugly.”
Since the cancellation, the town has posted the following:

The Alienstock event in Rachel just became Fyre Fest 2.0. The creator of the Storm Area 51 movement pulled out because he feels the event is not safe and lacks organization […] WARNING: At this time we have to warn people against coming to Rachel for the botched Storm Rachel event next weekend. The organizers are suing each other and in the meantime nothing is being done to prepare for the event. We expect riots when those visitors that may show up and paid good money find out that the reality looks nothing like what they were promised. People will get hurt. STAY AWAY FROM RACHEL NEXT WEEKEND!

As I reported about a month ago via my Instagram account, this entire Storm Area 51 event seemed more like a joke than anything else. In some ways, I even speculated that the push was a bit of a distraction from an even larger news story, one that is still relevant today: the Jeffrey Epstein arrest.

The Two Arrests

21-year-old Wilhelmus Jacob Sweep and 20-year-old Ties Granzie, are Dutch video creators who flew to the US to attend the much-anticipated event.

It did not take long for the Nye County Sheriff’s Office to find their vehicle parked three blocks inside the NNSS nuclear site. Interestingly, when the police found their belongings which included a camera, a laptop, and a drone, police found the pair already had already captured footage from inside the facility.

You could chalk this one up to a seek for some epic footage, you could also ay maybe they understand English so little that they couldn’t read the signs lol. Police feel that while Granzier and Sweep don’t understand English well, they should have been able to figure out the “No Trespassing” signs regardless. If convicted, the pair could face a maximum sentence of six months in prison, a $500 fine, or both, according to the US Department of Justice.

The Takeaway

The most interesting aspect of this for me is the rise in the Ufology culture such that and an event like this could become mainstream so quickly. Don’t get me wrong, many of these people would attend to drink beer, do psychedelics perhaps, and have a good time, but regardless, the discussion of government secrets at Area 51 received a huge resurgence, and the UFO topic does not seem to be going away.

As we have always done here at CE, sticking to the legit, academic and credible examples of UFOs/Aliens has been the most effective way to open people up to what’s truly going on here.
