Ole Olson49,318It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest. On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google. No Google Searches. No Google+. No gmail. No Youtube. No Google Calendar. No Blogger. No Google Maps. No Google Photos. No Google translate. No Google reverse image search. No Google Play. No Google Drive. No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source). If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change. Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like:•ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council)•American Conservative Union•Americans for Tax Reform•CATO Institute•Federalist Society•George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center•Heritage Action•Mercatus Center•National Taxpayers Union•R Street Institute•Texas Public Policy Foundation______________________________________________More information:Don’t Be Evil?

Tessa Schlesinger21,767This is my inner core circle  - the people from whom I share frequently. Sometimes, if someone hasn't been posting for a while, I will put them into another circle. I divide my circles into:1. Inner core ; people whose posts I share more often than others.2. Engagers: people with whom I engage and visa versa.3. My science circle. Geeky info that I like to read.4. My temporary circle; when I try out new people.2014-08-30 16:22:3688534

Hadrian Micciche20,993All of my posts today are shared from some of the people I follow. They may not have me in their circles, but I don't care. I want to see what they post and almost always find it informative and entertaining. These select few are in this circle.People who have either shared my posts, commented on them, or both, are also included. These are people who have engaged with my content and are likely to do the same for you. All of these folks are worthy of being added to your circles.Want to be added ? I don't do the typical "plus, comment, and share this circle" circle jerk. You know, of course, that folks always include themselves in a shared circle. I don't need you to indiscriminately promote me by sharing this circle. Just share or comment on any post of mine you find worthy and you'll be added to my circles. Offer void where prohibited by you posting:1. Only shares of other people's posts. I need to see original content, please.2. Blind links AKA link litter -- that is, not providing any commentary with your posts.3. Too many cat pictures -- if only done sparingly and other posts are informative and entertaining, no problemo.4. Too many pictures of your lunch, your overstarched shorts, or other inanities. That's what Facebook is for. :)5. Too many memes.6. Too many cat pictures. 7. Too many cat pictures.(Did I mention cat pictures?)8. Slurs or slander about LGBT folk, racism, sexism...9. Mistaking your fears for reality.10. Mistaking reality as a left-wing conspiracy.Yes, I'm a picky SOB --  but know this. None of the people in this circle do any of that stuff. Want to add people who have been vetted, have engaging content, and will engage with yours? Add this circle. 2014-07-13 16:53:56216223

Ole Olson46,666This is my original circle of progressives on G+. Add it for some hard hitting, unapologetic political information geared toward activating forward progress in America. 2014-06-28 03:56:553636518
Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503
Mark Anderson591This is a shared circle of people that have followed me and have an influence in the marketing industry. They vary from successful and just starting out but are all incredibly good people. Without a doubt, if you add them, you will have an even better Google Plus experience as they add you to their circles, plus, share and comment on your posts.#GooglePlus #CircleShare #sharedpubliccircles #sharedcircles   #circlesharing  #circleshared  #publiccirclesproject   #publicsharedcircles   #circleoftheday  #sharedcircles #engagers #circleshare #engagerscircle #circlesharing #publicsharedcircles #sharedpubliccircles #peopletofollow #publiccircle #socialnetworking #circlesharing #circleshare #circleoftheday #circleplus #publiccircles  #publicsharedcircles #sharedpubliccircles #bestofcircles #bestcircleshare2014-04-11 01:45:4749416919
Armando Lioss44,378“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 6.1Also known as the “Circle of Rivals” conformed by G+ users ready to stand for their points of view in an educated discussion and/or extending the discussion to their own streams... if you are looking into making your stream more dynamic, these are the guys you want to include... they are a diverse bunch of great plussers that includes liberals, progressives, conservatives, libertarians, religious, agnostics, atheists… from all around the world.In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these G+ users currently actively engage my stream as well as other G+ users posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the Google Plus community.This “Active Engagers Shared Circle” version has been built with an improved algorithm that will filter occasional users and those that use hate speech or other nuisances to the common user. The main purpose of this series of Shared Circles is to expose new G+ users that are active engagers, but you may find even first generation ones in them.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check:https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one… #activeusers   #engagers   #engagerscircle   #commenters   #topcircles  #circlesunday  Disclaimer: I don’t necessarily share or identify with the views of these G+ users, in fact with some of them we have completely antagonistic points of view and dissimilar interests…2014-04-07 15:38:3241991214

Tessa Schlesinger12,664These are the people I follow. If you would like to follow these people, feel free. There is no guarantee that they will add you if you do. You will be following them because you would like to hear what they have to say. There is no need to plus it, add a comment, and then share it in order for you to be added to some new circle which will be shared. This is the way we shared circles for the first two years. So feel free to add, or not. And I'm not in it so it isn't promoting myself. It's a gift to you, if you would like it. And, I suppose it's a gift to those who are in the circle that I freely give with no expectation of return.2013-11-03 12:52:17133335
Marie Axelsson9,706Hello and Thank you for the month of October!My month long project, with who interacts with me. Today the circle reached 500 people, but due to some bugs of G+ that I don't understand it doesn't say 500 anymore. However, here you all are. These are 500 people, who over the course of a month would have interacted with me. 500 people out of 9431 followers is a nice sum. :)Something I noticed is that some of the people weren't actually following me, but likely interacted due to someone else sharing their +1 activites on G+, which is a neat effect. Next month I will make another type of circle, not 100% sure yet, and there might actually end up being two for two purposes. They will of course both be shared. :D Good luck and enjoy each other's company! ;) 2013-10-31 16:57:1649855399

Ole Olson14,742Leaders of Google+ in #progressive   #politics  Add this circle for a well vetted collection of thought leaders that post a high degree of quality political content.

Ole Olson11,096The Top 50 Progressives Circle on G+  This is the best of the best forward thinkers that I've found here on Google+. To be in this very small circle, I've set a few basic guidelines:1. High quality and volume of progressively oriented political posts from a variety of sources and topics2. Long history of activism on G+ and steady activity3. Strong Engagment (+1's, shares, comments) on other people's posts  I'm pretty sure I've missed out on a lot of folks that should be in this circle, but this is the best I can do for the time being, so don't feel slighted if you're not in there. This is a work in progress, but I can guarantee that you will enjoy adding this circle.  #Gplus   #Politics   #progressive   #liberal   #activism   #SharedCircles  2013-03-18 17:30:17589312

Slavo Herman180I'd like to share with you the circle in which a little surprisingly I discovered my name. It is a circle with people who got one nomination to "Best of Google Plus 2012" created as the Circle No. 3 by +Kurt Smith.(He also created two more circles, No. 1 and 2, containing people with more nominations - you can find them at http://goo.gl/tAePD and http://goo.gl/7IBkV respectively :)2013-01-07 16:40:4448423115
Trever McGhee18,273+Take2seconds to click the add button on this circle!Last week +Kurt Smith asked people to name 5 people they thought should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'.  He received 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.We were honored to be among them, so we've created two circles to honor those chosen.This is the second of 2 circles from that list.Their all worthy of a follow .. a circle  to see what they bring to your stream.Check them out for a week...keep the ones that you like at the end of the week and then put the rest aside for another time :-))))People always ask me to add them or another person to the next circle when I share circles from other people to help them connect with others...Well I can't add you to their circle but what I can do is create another circle for you.So if you would like to be in the next one or would like to recommend someone,1st. please leave a comment of why you or they should be in the next circle, why people should circle you back.2nd. please share this circle to the public stream to help these people connect with others.I'll create a circle once a week with your suggestion.P.S. if your in the above circle and would like to be in the next one, just let me know. #bestofgoogleplus   #bestofgoogleplus2012   #circle   #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircles   #sharedmycircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publicshare   #publiccircles   #publicsharedcircles   #publiccirclesproject   #addmetoyourcircles   #awesomecircle   #awesomeness   #awesomepeople   #awesomecircle  +Circles 2013-01-02 20:58:1649052430
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

Alex Grossman24,072For my second Circle today for Follow Friday, here is my Respectful Politics Circle. This Circle is by request only and not for the faint of heart. It's filled with people who are passionate about politics and issues that impact society and come from across the political spectrum - the point is to have fun, learn and share. If you're interested in joining the discussions, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. No commitment to share your own posts, but it is preferred that you at least comment semi-regularly so as to encourage discussion. Just keep in mind that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful and civil manner. Let your passion fill you, but always temper it with manners, respect and politeness. Bullies will not be tolerated. The point is not to "win" but to learn. #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #politics  2012-07-20 15:10:0498901
Daniel Simons14,510New circle - Academic PsychologistsOver the past few weeks I've been compiling a circle of academic psychologists on Google+. It includes faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in psychology, all of whom are working in a university setting and most of whom do research in psychology. Many of them post about research in psychology on a regular basis (most post on other topics as well). Please feel free to share this circle/post widely. If you have suggestions for others to include, please add them in the comments on this post. (I will +1 each comment once I've added them), and I will re-share it on occasion as I add more people to it. I hope you find the circle useful.2012-07-16 16:25:3811215810

Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718

BREAKING: The House of Representatives just approved the Keystone XL pipeline, which scientists warn will mean "game over" for the planet. If Keystone is built, it is expected to make the Koch brothers $100 billion in profits, making them the wealthiest family in human history. Share to spread their shame!

In the words of +Melody Polson, "It cannot be acceptable in our economy to take advantage of the low wage labor of undocumented persons, while calling them lazy, job stealing, disease ridden, tax evading leeches-- when, in reality, the tax evading leeches are the employers of said undocumented persons.

We can, like Australia does, pay $6 a pound for our bell peppers. $12 a pound for tomatoes? Nah-- we want the benefit of undocumented  labor. We just don't admit who is cheating the tax man."

In my own less eloquent words: Conservatives want to keep them illegal to hold the threat of deportation over their heads. How else do you suppose we could employ them at slave wages?

The American system at work

"Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people” – Henry Kissinger

thanks, +Pamela Zuppo, and +H George Tavakoli 

Hunger in the Heartland: In the heart of GMO Farmland, where Iowa has 30 million acres of primarily GM crops, over 400,000 Iowans don't know where their next meal is coming from. 30% of children in Iowa public schools qualify for free meals. How can Iowa, in a very rich agricultural state, have rising rates of food insecurity? We'll tell you how. GMOs aren't feeding IOWA. GMOs are not feeding the U.S. either, where food insecurity has increased by 57% since they were introduced. The only thing GMOs are feeding are the agrichemical corporations' bank accounts. Feeding the world - the big GMO LIE. BOYCOTT GMOs.

In the words of Vic Farrow, "One of the best pieces I've read in a long time."

Just a little taste:  _He [Obama] keeps making the mistake of thinking he can reach Republicans with logic and calm reason. He can’t. You can’t reason with unreasonable people. You can not reason with Birthers and Truthers and FEMA Camps and Death Panels and people who believe that hurricanes are caused by magic fairies in the sky who hate gay people. You can not reason with people who think the earth is 6000 years old and their personal prophet rode around the Middle East on the back of a vegetarian velociraptor. You’re trying to reason with people who are just plain fucking nuts._

Benghazi!

Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

The admission released in a way to minimize sound and fury.

And you can be sure republicans'll bring it up again (and again, and...), secure in the knowledge that few will have noticed the news they so carefully buried.

thanks, +Alex Grossman 

Released on Friday to try and minimize the impact on the news cycle. What a waste of time and money on the part of the GOP.

"A two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees.

Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria."___Benghazi!

Smart politics

Your move, republicans.

thanks, +Pamela Zuppo 

On one hand, tonight’s presidential announcement, removing the threat of deportation for up to 5 million of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in America, will be a historic moment cherished especially by immigrant families that no longer will live in fear of being torn apart. Make sure you have a box of tissues handy.

On the other hand, watching Republicans go apoplectic is just going to be fun to watch. Make sure you have a tub of buttered popcorn handy.

The White House rollout of the immigration executive action has been designed to maximize outrage on right, ruining the Republican leadership’s strategy of appearing sober and pragmatic as they are forced to grapple with renewed calls for government shutdown and other childish retaliatory measures.

Yesterday, as word spread of the imminent announcement, Operation Epic Troll was doing its job: Sen. Ted Cruz laid a strategy for sending poison pills to Obama’s desk and then try to blame him for the inevitable shutdown, proving he’s a one-trick pony. Sen. Tom Coburn is talking about the possibility of mass riots. Rep. Michelle Bachmann railed to The Washington Post that “illiterate foreign nationals … we all know that many, in all likelihood, will vote,” and added that was Obama’s intention: “He’s looking at new voters for 2016…. People do vote without being a citizen.”

Just two weeks ago, rational Republicans thought they had a model of success to elevate in Sen.-elect Cory Gardner, who ran as an immigration moderate and performed well with Latino voters. Now Republican voices of petulance and bigotry are dominant, and if they remain so, Republican chances to compete in higher-turnout presidential years dims yet again.

Move to amend Colorado's constitution to protect community and human rights from corporate excesses

If successful, the move would help to correct the massive imbalance of power between corporations who seek to exploit (read: destroy) the environment and communities who depend on the natural resources (little things, like clean air and water) threatened by the corporations' activities.

I am not foolish enough to think this has a snowball's chance of succeeding. But if it did, it would be amazing for Colorado and could set an example for the rest of us.

Florida tries to save face on homelessness after huge failure, fails again

thanks, +AATTP 

Ray Cox, a Fort Lauderdale, Florida homeless man, attended a meeting in Fort Lauderdale in which City Commissioners were to declare November 16-22 “National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week” in the city. This face-saving measure comes in response to national criticism for the arrest of Arnold Abbott, a 90-year-old homeless man who was nabbed for the terrible crime of feeding the homeless, and two pastors who were helping with the endeavor.___Florida tries to save face on homelessness after huge failure, fails again

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Sen. Al Franken’s (D-MN) claim that the Texas senator doesn’t know what net neutrality is with a video that proved Franken’s point. Cruz is utterly clueless as to what net neutrality does.

Add It Up: The Average American Family Pays $6,000 a Year in Subsidies to Big Business.
Just $36 towards the food stamps program

We don't have a money problem, we are actually one of the richest countries in the world. We have a spending priorities problem where we dump our national treasure into the coffers of big corporations, and most of that money trickles up to the richest 1% instead of helping working folks that create that wealth in the first place with their labor.

Stop fast track. Stop TPP, TTIP.

TPP and TTIP are a wet dream for corporations and a nightmare for everyone else.

Today kicks off a national week of action to #StopFastTrack.

Powerful governments and special interests are negotiating secret trade deals behind closed doors -- and the little we know isn't pretty. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would, for example, open the door to more exports of fracked gas and other dirty fuels.

There's a lesson here, liberals

Quit being so chickenshit about your beliefs. They really are better, smarter and more defensible than conservative beliefs.

Start treating them as such.

thanks, +Sarah Lee 

"Franken took the opposite approach. Instead of running away from the progressive accomplishments of the Obama era, he embraced them, railing against bankers, advocating for student loan reform—even defending the Affordable Care Act. Franken ran as an Elizabeth Warren-style Democrat, running a populist campaign that didn't shirk discussion of the specific policies Democrats could pursue to help the middle class. And voters rewarded him. "This wasn't a safe seat," Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, said in an e-mail. "He earned his victory by being a proud populist Democrat for six years and inspiring voters.""___There's a lesson here, liberals

I really hope this is real and they can make it stick

Or at least make their protest visible.

They, and all the other people whose lives will be affected by this environment-wrecking-bullshit-for-the-profit-of-two-sub-humans, have a right to put a stop to this. It is insanity.

BREAKING: The House of Representatives just approved the Keystone XL pipeline, which scientists warn will mean "game over" for the planet. If Keystone is built, it is expected to make the Koch brothers $100 billion in profits, making them the wealthiest family in human history. Share to spread their shame!___Whose side are they on?

Keystone KL is a huge win for the Kochs and a giant loss for everyone else

Ask yourself: What, exactly, will it do for me? For my neighbors? For the US?

Answer: Nothing. The oil won't go to the US, the profits won't go to the US and the Kochs won't even pay taxes on their profits.

What will the pipeline do to me? To my neighbors? To the US?

It will pollute likely destroy one of the largest aquifers in the US, one that is critical for much of America's central Breadbasket. (Do you like to eat? This pipeline may will  put a major crimp in that if when it poisons America's Breadbasket. But the Kochs don't care about that. They can afford to buy their food elsewhere.)

Great idea, republicans: Enrich the oil industry at everyone else's expense. Why is this the only idea you ever seem to have?

The comet landing

This is going around, as it should. If you haven't seen it yet, then do.

thanks, +NASA or should I say, European Space Agency.

(We're falling behind, Americans. This is what we get for failing to fund science. Well, this and Ebola. And a ton of other failures. Reject science, return to the Dark Ages.)

We're marveling at the images from the Rosetta Mission and the Philae lander. 

Take a look: http://1.usa.gov/1qVtBen

Comets and asteroids are "time capsules" of the solar system's history, making them particularly interesting targets of study by scientists. Missions like Rosetta are helping advance spaceflight, putting more of these bodies within our reach, opening new possibilities for exploration. 

Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1xmj1PQ

This daring international mission is spearheaded by ESA - European Space Agency, with key support and instruments from NASA. NASA contributed three of the orbiter's instruments (ALICE, MIRO, and IES) and part of the electronics package for the Double Focusing Mass Spectrometer - one of two detectors on the Swiss ROSINA instrument. NASA is also providing science investigators for selected non-U.S. instruments. In all, NASA is involved to a greater or lesser degree in Alice, MIRO, IES, OSIRIS, Radio Science, ROSINA, and VIRTIS experiments. NASA's Deep Space Network provides support for ESA's Ground Station Network for spacecraft tracking and navigation.

The Kochs craft their message against Net Neutrality

It is, predictably, aimed at the uninformed and prone to knee jerk, anti-government emotions. And it is, of course, chock-full of falsehoods. But that won't matter. (To its target audience, emotions matter, but facts don't.)

It will therefore be effective. These guys are -- or, more accurately, hire -- the best propagandists since... ever. (Hitler , Stalin, and their ilk were amateur chumps compared to these people.)

This bullshit is about to come your way from right-wing trolls. Be prepared for it.

thanks, +AATTP 

The Tea Party group FreedomWorks came out against Net Neutrality on Wednesday, verbally attacking it in a new video after — surprise, surprise — President Obama announced strong support for regulations that require Internet providers like Comcast treat all web traffic equally.

Elizabeth Warren gaining (much deserved) new prominence in democratic party?

"Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) gained a leadership position in the Senate Democratic caucus Thursday ... Warren's role, which is a new position created specifically for her, will be in crafting the party's messaging and policy."

We'll see. But in the mean time, it seems like a step in the right direction.

That this guy is in charge of environmental policy can only be the result of a combination of extreme malice and colossal stupidity.

Now, the man who also compared the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to “a Soviet-style trial, in which ideological purity trumps technical and scientific rigour”, is in line for one of the most important environmental jobs in Congress.

Stunningly hypocritical words from a man who unfailingly allows religious superstition and political ideology to trump the massive scientific evidence for human-caused climate change.

" Rosetta’s Plasma Consortium (RPC) has uncovered a mysterious ‘song’ that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is singing into space. RPC principal investigator Karl-Heinz Glaßmeier, head of Space Physics and Space Sensorics at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, tells us more (see article at link). "

Republican economic policies at work

thanks, +The Bitchy Pundit 

This is all true. Here are some more fun facts:

-New Jersey is 48th in the country for job creation, despite all of the corporate tax cuts Christie doled out (paid for by cutting education, of course).
-Texas is #2 for job creation, but they're creating low paying jobs. Median come in Texas is going DOWN (even with the oil billionaires skewing that average).
-Wisconsin's giant deficit put them at 29th on the job creation list. By comparison, California RAISED taxes, BALANCED the budget, and came in at #9 for job creation.

I think that we can all agree that republicans have permanently dropped that "fiscal responsibility" part of their hypothetical platform.___Republican economic policies at work

Navy’s planned electromagnetic war games could harm people, wildlife

Enough electromagnetic radiation will be emitted so as to be capable of melting human eye tissue, and causing breast cancer, childhood leukemia and damage to human fetuses, let alone impacting wildlife in the area.

No public notices for the Navy's plans were published in any media that directly serve the Olympic Peninsula; hence the Navy initially reported that it had received no public comments on its "environmental assessment" for the war games.

The Navy's war-gaming plans are most likely in violation of the stated purposes of the National Park Service, in addition to being in violation of the aforementioned US code.

The Navy's war-gaming plans are most likely in violation of the stated purposes of the National Park Service, in addition to being in violation of the aforementioned US code.

However, in direct contradiction to the Navy's responses along with their so-called environmental assessment, in 1994, the US Air Force published the report,"Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation Biological Effects and Safety Standards: A Review.”

Page 18 of the report states: "Nonthermal disruptions have been observed to occur at power densities that are much lower than are necessary to induce thermal effects. Soviet researchers have attributed alterations in the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system to the nonthermal effect of low level RF/MW radiation exposure.”

The report concludes, ”Experimental evidence has shown that exposure to low intensity radiation can have a profound effect on biological processes.”___

It's always wise to ask about the motive of the source of your "information". (This is mostly directed at conservatives, who seem childishly credulous about any statement that seems to support their 11th century biases.)

(My prediction: Liberals will say"no duh!" and conservatives will complain vociferously, if they have the guts to comment at all. Please bring intelligent disagreement, conservatives.)
