The Cruel Winds of Change

International Medical Veritas Association

A lot of people think climate change and the ecological repercussions are 50 years away," said Thomas Swetnam, head of the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona in Tucson. "But it's happening now in the West. The data is telling us that we are in the middle of one of the first big indicators of climate change impacts in the continental United States.” We don't need Al Gore to tell us something is up with the weather. Not if you have been driven from your home in recent days by cyclones in Pakistan, by raging floods in Texas or Yorkshire, by forest fires in California or have sweltered in intense heat in southern Europe.

Temperatures in parts of the West have been climbing so high recently that authorities warned residents of southern Nevada, southeastern California and northwestern Arizona that outdoor activities could be dangerous except during the cooler early morning hours. The intense heat wave that has baked much of Europe for weeks, fueling deadly forest fires, causing drought and damaging crops is threatening lives and livelihoods in many parts of Europe. The hot weather is taking its toll on agriculture, with forecasts for cereal production in Germany and the EU being cut. Provinces in western and northern China are facing food shortages due to a prolonged drought that has left hundreds of reservoirs dry and tens of thousands of wells either dry or nearly empty.

Each new scientific paper seems to carry a message grimmer than the last.

Barring a surprise arrival of the kind of gully washers Texas is getting these days, Los Angeles' driest year in 130 years of record-keeping will go into the books in July of 2007. The nation's second-largest city is missing nearly a foot of rain for the year counted from July 1 to June 30. Just 3.21 inches have fallen downtown in those 12 months, closer to Death Valley's numbers than the normal average of 15.14 inches. And it's much the same all over the West, from the measly snow pack and fire-scarred Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada to Arizona's shrinking Lake Powell and the withering Colorado River watershed.

Global grain harvest has not met demand for most of the past eight years.

Erik S. Lesser for The New York Times Our future looks as bleak as farmers’ fields.
On Monday July 2, 2007 the entire state of Alabama was declared a drought disaster area by the federal Department of Agriculture. “Nobody alive has ever seen it like this,” said Perry Mobley, and the National Weather Service says conditions are unlikely to change until fall. The true reckoning will come later this year as food stocks fall and prices rise. The drought is wilting much of the Southeast, causing watering restrictions and curtailed crops in Georgia, premature cattle sales in Mississippi and Tennessee, and rivers so low that power companies in the region are scrambling and barges are unable to navigate.[i]



A team led by Dr. James Hansen at NASA suggests that the grim reports issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change could be absurdly optimistic.[ii] The IPCC predicts that sea levels could rise by as much as 59cm this century. Hansen’s paper argues that the slow melting of ice sheets the panel expects doesn’t fit the data. The geological record suggests that ice at the poles does not melt in a gradual and linear fashion, but flips suddenly from one state to another. When temperatures increased to 2-3 degrees above today’s level 3.5 million years ago, sea levels rose not by 59 centimeters but by 25 meters. The ice responded immediately to changes in temperature.



As well as drowning most of the world’s centers of population, a sudden disintegration could lead to much higher rises in global temperature, because less ice means less heat reflected back into space.


Throughout the early 1960s, world grain reserves were equal to at least 1 year's global demand for these commodities. By this year, that excess had fallen to just 20 percent of what's now consumed annually. Most people have not realized it yet but cheap food is about to become a thing of the past. Agflation is an increase in the price of food that occurs as a result of increased demand from human consumption, falling production and the diversion of crops into usage as an alternative energy resource. Yes this diversion works quite well for a country like Brazil but the recent American lust for it will affect the entire world and kill many through starvation.


Agriculture is central to human survival, and is the human enterprise most vulnerable to changes in climate. Understanding the current and future effects of changes in climate on world food supplies is crucial for our lives depend on it. A warming world means much more than hotter temperatures and rising seas, it means disease, hunger, starvation and death and even more work for overworked doctors. Agriculture is highly sensitive to climate variability and weather extremes, such as droughts, floods and severe storms. The forces that shape our climate are also critical to farm productivity.

The World Health Organization estimates climate change has already directly or indirectly killed more than 1 million people globally since 2000. More than half of those deaths have occurred in the Asia-Pacific area, the world's most populous region. Those figures do not include deaths linked to urban air pollution, which kills about 800,000 worldwide each year, according to WHO.
An ever-rising tide of sand has claimed grasslands, ponds, lakes and forests, swallowed whole villages and forced tens of thousands of people to flee as it surges south and threatens to leave this ancient Silk Road greenbelt uninhabitable. Farmers dig wells down hundreds of feet. If they find water, it is often brackish, poisonous. R oughly the size of Rhode Island, is buried each year. Nearly all of north central China, including Beijing, is at risk.


Severe events are going to be more frequent.


Last week, EU Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas said: "In Britain, there is bad flooding and destruction on a scale rarely seen before, and more bad weather is on the way. For some people in Europe it will be a case of adapt or die." If you get the idea that very soon we will have a massive refugee problem in the world and that people with money will be desperate to escape to safer more environmentally friendly environments you could not be more correct.

Special Note: Though I am now building Sanctuary in the interior of Brazil into a cancer clinic and retreat center for radical cure I have not given up my vision of creating an underground railroad (via jet plane) for people to escape from the north to one of the most beautiful pristine environments left. With one of the lowest population densities in the world and plenty of water it’s an ideal place to ride out The Cruel Winds of Change. During my last trip to the interior I created a construction company with my builder and made contacts with several old friends who have quite a bit of land for sale. Though the region is vast in terms of space I would guess that the maximum amount of new families the local area could support in terms of immigration is only about 200 and even that would be pushing it. I can imagine that many people buying land but it would take a few years for the local people to be able to build for so many people.

Authorities in the world are already predicting massive refugee problems but in reality there are few places to go and if one waits till everyone wakes up to the obvious it will be too late and most options will be cut off. Part three of The Cruel Winds of Change has to do with the deadly risks of air pollution and the gas like chamber effect of living in large urban centers. In my book HeartHealth is the following prose:


To listen is to suffer because we do not want to listen to anything that might require a change. To listen is to change.We cannot change without listening. Listening implies a change.We need to change just to listen.


Actually I am an uncomfortable person to be around too much because I am always suggesting change. It is just the natural position of my being and it emanates from me with ease. Everything is always changing, everything is in a state of flux but our ego centered minds resist change and this is where we are all going to be tested in the years ahead.

After I publish part three tomorrow I will change directions, as far as my publications to the IMVA are concerned, and publish materials that have to do with solutions, medical solutions that will help us survive despite all the pressures that are accumulating around us and perhaps in about ten days I will finish the first edition of Survival Medicine for the 21st Century. These past few days as I have written extensively about late stage fungus infections, cancer and sodium bicarbonate I have been stimulated with medical creativity.

In discovering that Dr. Tullio Simoncini's bicarbonate protocol demands simultaneous high carbohydrate consumption I have envisioned combining the bicarbonate protocol with an intensive regime of high level anti-oxidant fruits that have known anti tumor effects. So threatened was the FDA by cherry farmers speaking out about the medical effects of purple colored fruits that they had to give gag orders to make sure they would not threaten orthodox oncologists and their work. Purple (Concord) grapes (with their skin and seeds), and to a slightly lesser degree red and black grapes, contain several nutrients that are known to kill cancer cells. These kinds of grapes also contain nutrients to stop the spread of cancer. They also help detoxify the body. Down here in Brazil it's fruit heaven and in the local area of the clinic are two fruits, Graviola and Jabuticaba and from more distant regions Açaí and acerola. My building crew brought a two liter bottle of Graviola juice freshly made and I never tasted anything so delicious in my life. Açaì is sold everywhere as an ice-cream type of treat and who would have ever thought it would be excellent in a cancer protocol.

The key is to be eating these berries in their raw, whole fruit form rather than trying to eat processed berries. In order to get the healing phytonutrients, you must get the berries in the freshest form possible -- that means no processed berries, just raw berries, right off the bush or straight from the grocery store. It is very disturbing to examine how much of the nutritional value is lost in commercially available fruits and in food in general, whose nutritional values have been dropping steadily for the last fifty years.

On the internet one will find references to using such fruits as a primary cancer treatment thus they will be excellent supportive therapies to the bicarbonate. Because the central substances in our cancer protocol are concentrated nutritional items (stolen from emergency rooms and intensive care wards) we are free to shape treatments in a more complex and dynamic way. What is life threatening with pharmaceutical drugs (dangerous to mix them) is life saving with nutritional substances like sodium bicarbonate, magesium chloride, iodine and ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid).


Also of special note: Dr. Tullio Sumoncini has traveled to the United States and has spoken to about 40 doctors some of which might be coming online to give sodium bicarbonate treatments but in the US this will be touchy with the FDA hound dogs ready to bite just about anyone who does not do things THEIR WAY. Since their way is the wrong way we have to do everything opposite to what they indicate to be sure that we are going the right way. I imagine people in the States who cannot afford to go to Mexico or here to Brazil or to Italy and Switerland, where this treatment is also going to be available. It will be possible that individuals will be able to do at home many of the sodium bicarbonate treatments with some simple medical supervision and proper equipment. We will assist people where we can and make either the appropriate referals when possible or take people into our own online clinic to give suppport from a distance.

For many reasons, including the difficulty of receiving bicarbonate via a necessary catheter for certain forms of cancer, the IMVA protocol does not depend too much on any one medicinal agent to effect a cure for cancer. We will have our cocktails but they will not be chemical or toxic. We will be supporting physicians and clinics that choose to take multi-dimensional approaches that catch cancer/late stage fungus infections in a lethal cross fire of concentrated nutritional agents.

Claudia French RN, LPHA, the assistant director to the IMVA, traveled to meet Dr. Simoncini and it was thrilling to hear her reports and the fact that when the organizer of the lecture started the days events he shouted out to the audience, "Is there anyone in the house from the IMVA?" We brought Transdermal Magnesium Therapy books, magnesium oil and a wonderful iodine to give out to everyone.

[ii] We now have a pretty good idea of why ice sheets collapse. The buttresses that prevent them from sliding into the sea break up; meltwater trickles down to their base, causing them suddenly to slip; and pools of water form on the surface, making the ice darker so that it absorbs more heat. These processes are already taking place in Greenland and West Antarctica. Rather than taking thousands of years to melt, as the IPCC predicts, Hansen and his team find it “implausible” that the expected warming before 2100 “would permit a West Antarctic ice sheet of present size to survive even for a century.” The new paper suggests that the temperature could therefore be twice as sensitive to rising greenhouse gases than the IPCC assumes. “Civilization developed,” Hansen writes, “during a period of unusual climate stability, the Holocene, now almost 12,000 years in duration. That period is about to end.”
