The earth is in a tail spin when it comes to climate change and finding an effective solution, unfortunately this is not an easy task.

Now a handful of billionaires, including Bill Gates are funding some of the leading scientists to lobby governments and international bodies to back experiments into manipulating the climate on a global scale to help prevent climate change.

TEPCO reported that radiation levels are over 10,000 millisieverts per hour on the second floor of reactor one. The problem with that report is that Geiger counters can’t measure past 10,000 millisieverts per hour. So how high is the radiation level on the second floor of reactor one?
In an effort to stop CO2 emissions in Australia, they have come up with one proposal that is completely absurd. They are talking about killing off their wild camel population because they are farting too much, supposedly creating too much CO2.
