General[ edit ] "Nuclear winter," or as it was initially termed, "nuclear twilight," began to be considered as a scientific concept in the s, after it became clear that an earlier hypothesis, that fireball generated NOx emissions would devastate the ozone layerwas losing credibility. It was within this context that the climatic effects of soot from fires was "chanced upon" and soon became the new focus of the climatic effects of nuclear war. Once the quantity of soot is decided upon by the researchers, the climate effects of these soot clouds are then modeled. Turco in reference to a 1-dimensional computer model created to examine the "nuclear twilight" idea, this 1-D model output the finding that massive quantities of soot and smoke would remain aloft in the air for on the order of years, causing a severe planet-wide drop in temperature.
Tony Cartalucci - Just a Lousy Journalist? His writing focuses on the International dimension; the foreign interference in Thailand. While there is no doubt that no nation is an island and foreign groups with their own agendas interfere in all nations for their own personal ends, Tony has been very selective in which foreign groups he writes on, what their intentions are and who they work with in Thailand.
I write now to expose some of the glaring omissions he has purposefully made and encourage you to ask; What groups does this foreigner in Thailand belong to and what is his agenda? I have been aware of his work for a year now. It started with the tragic events in Bangkok.
Protesters were gunned down, soldiers died too, and foreign journalists, nurses and emergency workers were killed too, even delivery boys going about their business were gunned down.
This is why they have chosen to be a Red Movement, it is not a left wing movement, it encompasses all of the common people of Thailand. Over the period of a year he continued along the same vein and added further incontestable facts to his writing. Thaksin was in the Council on Foreign Relations.
He has also continued with his nationalist ideological writing, praising the currently unelected government and Thai nationalists, while condemning all that they condemn with a fierce and violent passion; Highlighting some realities in Thailand such as the lax approach to enforcing Intellectual Property rights to essential drugs, which can not honestly be attributed to any political faction, and attributing them to the nationalists.
Perhaps, we should start with some glaring omissions. He was also a member of the Carlyle Asia Advisory Board. He, however, remained on the board for three years more than Thaksin, who left in Anand only left when the board was disbanded in He supported the military coup which ousted Thaksin and was surprised that the international community condemned it.
He has sat with George W. Bush at the Global Leadership Foundation. The list goes on and on. And so, the first questions arises; Who is more intimately linked with Western interests?
Why was Anand surprised by international condemnation of the coup? Surin Pitsuwan Surin Pitsuwan is another opponent of Thaksin and a coup supporter. He became unelected Prime Minister of Thailand in Above are a just a few influential Thai people with links to the same organisations as Thaksin, and more.
Again the questions arise; Who is more influenced by these foreign interests? In his first year in office, he inaugurated three heavy spending programmes that directly contradicted the IMF edicts: These policies did not bring on the inflationary crisis that the IMF and conservative local economists expected.
Paying off this debt will inevitably result in less public spending and higher taxes. New taxes are also being introduced such as the Land Tax which is currently going through parliament. Asia Times noted before the coup that "Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was elected in on a strongly populist economic platform now widely referred to as Thaksinomics.
RSO Randall Bennet from the US Embassy at an on-line meeting wrote, "If anything, the Army has been extremely patient and while being attacked by Red-Shirts with lethal weapons, has responded with rubber bullets to minimize casualties.
The Army has not been the aggressor in this case.

TOAST. The Cold War was a state of geopolitical tension after World War II between powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its satellite states) and powers in the Western Bloc (the United States, its NATO allies and others).
