Scientists from 10 European countries dug three kilometres deep into the Antarctic ice crust and brought a 740,000 year old ice core to the surface. This will be analysed to find changes in temperature and concentrations of gases and particles in the atmosphere. The scientists hope that by understanding past changes in climate, it will be possible to predict future climate change activities. "

CORDIS FP5: Projects: "Climate and Lake Impacts in Europe"
A consortium of scientists and end-users from 10 countries intends to assess the direct and indirect effects of changes in the weather on the dynamics of lakes in northern, western and central Europe. Particular attention will be paid to water quality variables used as diagnostic elements in the water Framework Directive. The primary objective is to develop a suite of current as well as past changes in the weather. The models will be validated by historical data and perturbed by simulations of future variations in the weather. These simulations will be based on the output from an ensemble of Regional Climate Models and will be linked to socio-economic analyses of other costs and benefits of the predicted changes. One of the main outputs will be a Decision Support System that can be used to optimise the management of lakes in a warmer world. "

Chemtrails And Terror In The Age Of Nuclear War

INN World Report - News: "Rogue Bush Backers prepare Super 9/11 False Flag Terror Attacks

INN Preview Exclusive -June 2

By Webster Griffin Tarpley

Toronto, May 30 � Intelligence patterns monitored over the US Memorial
Day weekend now point conclusively to an imminent new round of ABC
(atomic-bacteriological-chemical) terror attacks in the United States,
Great Britain, Canada, and possibly other nations. These attacks could
include nuclear detonations, radiological dirty bombs, poison gas and
other chemical weapons, or biological agents, to be unleashed in such
urban settings as New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC,
Vancouver BC, or London.

The goal of these operations would be to
produce a worldwide shock several orders of magnitude greater than the
original 9-11, with a view to stopping the collapse of the Bush
administration, the Wall Street-centered financial structures, and the
US-UK strategic position generally."
