Thordarson admitted having produced fraudulent key accusations against Julian Assange while cooperating with the FBI. We believe that the FBI as an official entity should not engage in criminal operations like directing cracker attacks against Iceland and producing wrong key evidence even if they feel that what Julian Assange has done should be punished. Nonetheless there are many people who may think about this very differently. / Software developer and antivirus pioneer John McAfee committed suicide before being extradited to the United States. He was once a US presidential candidate and charged with tax evasion and cryptocurrency fraud for trying to help Cuba circumvent the trade embargo.
The French state wants to cut the feed-in tariffs for solar power so radically that a number of operating companies are likely to go bankrupt. The publicly available, actual database of the operating companies is not used for the reduction, but an artificially compiled one. Small investors in particular are harmed. We think that this is a fatal signal for the energy transition and for future investments that are urgently needed right now. There will be a cut, but your signature can help ensure that it is appropriate to continue to cover the real cost.
Survival International has proclaimed Uncontacted Tribes Week. When this image went around the world in 2008, many people, including resource-hungry governments and corporations, denied the existence of uncontacted tribes. Uncontacted peoples are people who refuse contact with “civilization” partially due to bad experiences and who continue to live without any trade relations with the rest of the world, as once upon a time. With their extremely rich cultures and their very own cosmovisions, they are an essential part of human diversity. If their areas are cleared, destroyed or used industrially, these peoples disappear. They then die down to the last man and the last woman. From the Amazon to Indonesia, there are more than 100 uncontacted tribes around the world. In addition to the petition for Brazil, there is also one for Peru. Paraguay has the Ayoreo-Totobiegosode, the last uncontacted people in South America outside of the Amazon.
The Biden administration suspended drilling leases in the Artic last week. We had reported about project “Willow”. Now it is up to Congress to install a permanent protection. Tell Biden to stop all tar sand and fracked gas fossil fuel pipelines – see for the message link. We had also reported that Japan would have consented in stopping the export of coal power (according to a Guardian article). However, apparently Japan does not intend to come up to its commitments: see on twitter: I, II, III. Turning Trump´s fossil fuel rubber stamping organization the FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) into FREC (Federal Renewable Energy Commission) has been discussed and demanded long by Beyond Extreme Energy. Now sign the petition for a Climate Leader at FERC! Demand pension funs to divest: nearly all of the US pension funds are invested in fossil fuels: Tax money must not support polluters. France: Sign against Nestlé illegally dumping plastic waste at the mineral water territory of Vittel and against Nestlé bullying the whistleblower Didier Thouvenin.
Besides Google, IBM is a leader in the field of quantum computers. The Ehningen site in Europe now has the first quantum computer with more than 25 qubits (IBM Q System). In March 2020, IBM and the Frauenhofer-Gesellschaft signed an agreement with Angela Merkel to advance research on quantum computers in Germany. The quantum computer can be used to develop battery and fuel cells, it can be used for better algorithms for industrial manufacturing, development, logistics, energy and finance as well as for stability analysis of critical infrastructure networks.
