Go With the Flow: Clean Energy From City Water Pipes Revolutionizes Hydroelectric Power

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

A company in Portland, Oregon has harnessed a near perfect source of energy: the constant flow of running water found in city pipes. 

Not many of us are willing to give up our creature comforts — regardless of how ecologically oriented we may be. Sure, we’ll recycle, reduce energy consumption whenever possible and support sustainable agriculture, but when it comes down to powering our computer, gadgets and other necessities, we’ll choose conventionally produced electricity over nothing at all. Even with sustainable options, there’s usually a catch since nothing is perfect. And yet, a clean and green technology is available today that can dramatically transform the way we power our lives.

Rooftop Gardening – The World Is Finally Growing Up!

By Carmen Allgood

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

In the last five years a super-phenomenon has been rising from the mists as urban sprawl decays around the globe. In the midst of a sea of concrete and tar, a mirage of living, breathing architecture is forming before our very eyes, taking shape and emerging as an Oasis.

No longer just a place to escape from the maddening crowds and stress of inner city life, the hit song “Up On The Roof” takes on a fresh new meaning as we — the citizens of our collective home — strive to tidy up the planet and green up our world. Our survival as a species just might depend on this action.

Humanity is Waking Up to the Intelligence of Nature

By Paul Lenda

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

There’s a heightening level of awareness within the human race with regards to nature and all that it contained within it. Everything from the discoveries of the rudiments of language in monkeys, metacognition in dolphins, self-awareness of elephants, the ability for animals to tell “right” from “wrong”, to the creation and extension of bills of rights for animals and plants by countries such as Switzerland and Ecuador as well as the acknowledgment of dolphins as being non-human persons.

There’s a growing awareness within humanity that nature and its inhabitants are not as primitive and simple as we once believed them to be. With this growing awareness comes growing understanding of the unity that humanity has with the environment within which it exists. This sense of unity with nature is not something new and indeed has been the primary position of awareness for many societies in existence before their industrialization.

Fracking Creates Massive Radioactive Waste Problem

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) openly acknowledges that fracking fluid contains “thousands of chemicals”, but nowhere is there mention of radioactivity in its risk assessments. Now, a new study reveals the “natural gas” industry may be hiding a secret as dark and deadly as the one the nuclear industry has been trying to conceal for decades. 

Following recent news that California’s fracking industry will be “repurposing” its toxic wastewater to meet the needs of an agricultural industry driven desperate by the drought, a timely new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives reveals that fracking wastewater is not just a source of dangerous petrochemicals but also a highly toxic form of radioactive waste.

Geoengineering Continues To Rob Rain From Where It Is Most Needed

By Dane Wigington

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

While the mainstream science community is still pretending climate engineering is only a proposal, the total decimation being inflicted on what is left of our environment from the ongoing geoengineering programs is mounting at blinding speed. Mainstream media also parrots the official narrative of climate engineering denial and the majority of the population is all too willing to accept the lies, in spite of the expanding mountain of data to the contrary.

Geoengineering is among the most destructive activities ever unleashed by the human race against the natural world. Though the list of horrific consequences directly related to climate engineering is long and growing rapidly, the total disruption of the hydrological cycle is one of the most visible effects. As reservoirs empty out and drought sets in, in many regions around the globe, record forest fires are close behind.

Stop GMO Corn in Mexico… Again! – Mexican Court Overturns Biotech GMO Ban

2nd September 2015

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

If you’ve been to Mexico, you know how incredible the food and culture are. I grew up part-time in Mexico and have returned many times since, for the beauty of the land, the people, the culture and the food. Much of this food culture revolves around corn, or maize, as it is technically called. But corn does more than feed people. It’s part and parcel of Mexico’s way of life.

Mexico is the cradle, the birthplace, of maize. Thousands of varieties have been cultivated over thousands of years by indigenous and traditional Mexicans. Many of these varieties are specifically adapted to thrive in Mexico’s varied landscapes — far more effectively than the one or two genetically modified varieties that stand to wipe out this millennia-long heritage.

However, after years of staving off the proliferation of GMO corn in Mexico, we’ve just received news of a devastating blow to the protection of everything beautiful connected with Mexico and this culinary legacy. After intense lobbying by biotech companies of Monsanto, Dow, and Dupont, Mexico’s twelfth District Court just overturned a 2013 ruling which, until now, has prevented the chemicals giants from planting GMO maize in Mexico.

New Scientific Study Confirms Contamination From Climate Engineering

By Dane Wigington

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The “International Journal Of Environmental Research And Public Health” has just published an in-depth research report, authored by Dr. Marvin Herndon, that directly implicates with 99% certainty the use of highly toxic coal fly ash as a base material in ongoing climate/geoengineering programs.

With the release of this study, which is published below in its entirety, the curtain of lethal deception continues to be pulled back, exposing the total tyranny of those in power. While they claim to be attempting to clean up our air, all available evidence makes clear the fact that highly toxic materials have been intentionally and continuously sprayed into our atmosphere as part of decades-long climate engineering experimentation programs. The newly published study is a very important breakthrough in the ongoing effort to expose the weather warfare assault on humanity.

Agricultural Water Problems and Solutions – What You Need To Know

27th August 2015 

By Mark W. Boutwell

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Water is the most important compound, making up between 50% and 65% of our body mass. It also comprises 70% of the entire Earth. Though water is the most abundant resource on planet Earth, only about 1% of water is considered safe for immediate human consumption.

Today, our society is facing a huge agricultural water problem. Water quality is rapidly decreasing as a result of human activities such as deforestation, mining and dumping of chemicals waste generated by factories into water sources such as oceans, rivers and lakes. In this article, we explore the actual agricultural problem we’re facing today, its causes and how this problem can be solved.

Drought Stricken California Turns to Oil Industry Wastewater for Crop Irrigation

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

As drought persists in California, oil behemoth Chevron has found an new way to dispose of its fracking wastewater: sell it to U.S. farmers in California. About 21 million gallons of wastewater is used on 45,000 acres of crops, which equates to roughly 10% of Kern County’s farmland in the Central Valley.

The program has been in effect for twenty years, due to persistent water shortages in the region. But with the current historic drought now into its fourth year, concerns over the practice of recycling this industrial wastewater are bubbling to the surface, notably because the fresh water that has historically been used to dilute the fracking wastewater is now in short supply — which may in turn increase the amount of petrochemical contaminants found in the water being used for agriculture.

Researchers are worried these toxic chemicals are then making their way into the food supply.

The 2015 UN Summit – Collectivism, Sustainability and the ‘New World Order’

20th August 2015

By Makia Freeman

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The 2015 UN Summit will be held in September 2015 in New York. Like any UN Summit, it will be full of UN buzzwords such as ‘consensus’, ‘empowerment’, ‘rule of law’ and ‘sustainability’, all of which have a sinister double meaning — as we will explore here.

The United Nations, founded by the Rockefellers and the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), has always been, right from its inception, about creating a One World Government. It has achieved this by appearing to be “of the people” when “of the globalists” would be a more apt description. Later this year, it will attempt to adopt the “post-2015 development agenda” which will be a furthering of its Agenda 21 aims, such as grabbing national land under the guise of saving the environment, forcing people off their land into tiny apartments in Smart Cities, global gun control and global internet control (the latest of its power grabbing schemes).

Creating Harmonious Gardens for Beneficial Insects

By Ansel Oommen

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Insects and other invertebrates account for over 90% of all living species, building the basis for most ecosystems. In fact, they often dominate their landscapes through both sheer number and volume, providing many key services, either directly or obliquely, as pollinators, recyclers, pest control and as food for a host of animals.

Due to the effects of dramatic changes in climate, habitat loss, and pesticides, insect populations are declining worldwide. Honeybees, for example, have attracted media attention since 2006, with their death tolls linked to neonicotinoids and a lack of supportive flora. The monarch butterfly, whose population once reached 900 million in 1995, now sits precariously at a meager 56.5 million- a 95% drop, placing it within risk of extinction.

Keeping this in mind, the role of the urban gardener is now more important than ever before.
