Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

The planet, the environment, war

The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes - YouTube
(6:42 mins:secs)

notice how few delegates are in the room for this young ladies talk.

Her powerful message has more value the the hot air of our "leaders".

Good trading to everyone.

She's grown up now

Along with group members Michelle Quigg, Vanessa Suttil, and Morgan Geisler, Cullis-Suzuki presented environmental issues from a youth perspective at the summit, where she was applauded for a speech to the delegates.[4][5] The video has since become a viral hit, popularly known as "The Girl Who Silenced the World for 6 Minutes"[6].


Severn Cullis-Suzuki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The speech was made in 1993 and things have gotten steadily worse since then.

  • 70% of all the fish in the ocean are gone
  • 50% of the world's forests are gone
  • the Amazon is still being destroyed at a rate of the size of Belgium each year
  • Madagascar has been almost completely deforested
  • millions of acres of arable land are being lost to desert each year (China and Africa)
  • Russia flares so much natural gas that from the shuttle it is visible.
  • toxic waste is being dumped in the oceans and the fine is only $25,000
  • they still allow dragnet trawling
  • Japanese herd dolphins into a bay and slaughter them alive filling the water full of blood
  • Chicken hatcheries confine the birds so tightly in cages that to keep them from pecking themselves to death (i.e. committing suicide) they cut off the beaks -incredibly painful and they grind up the male chicks alive.
  • veal comes from baby calves that are never allowed to move or see sunlight.
  • we have released so much CO2 into the atmosphere that the oceans are turning to carbonic acid which dissolves the coral reefs - nurseries of the ocean.
...
the list goes on and on..
..
one third - yes one third of all gasoline consumed by vehicles is from unnecessary idling. It causes more wear on your engine to idle it for 30 seconds while parked then to turn it off and on - not to mention the gas - so turn off your engine when you stop your car or are stuck in a traffic jam and go into the store.

Good trading to everyone.

Yes - of course only the tip of the iceberg.

So much mercury in the Pacific ocean that pregnant women are advise not to eat it and everyone else no more than once per week (or reading between the lines.. never). When you consider the vastness of the oceans size 70% of the surface area of the planet - it's really saying something.

The Chinese have been building dirty coal plant at an alarming rate (was 50 per week) with little in the way of scrubbers etc. and a few elite Chinese getting very rich off the cheap electricity. Coal is one of the major sources of mercury pollution.

(btw the compact florescent light have mercury in them so if you use them - which I do not recommend - do not throw them in the garbage!! The have to go to stores that promise to send them to special recycling facilities Home Hardware is one. Do they get to the special facilities? Do the facilities release a lot of pollution in recycling them? I don't know.)

Good trading to everyone.

Don't want to pick a fight but who counted the fish to determine 70% are gone....and I don't buy one third of gasoline is consumed by idling(among other things I was a ASE mechanic).
At the risk of offending my Asian friends the Chinese and the Japanese are the worst of the bunch....they still buy rhino horns, elephant tusks, whale meat, and just want the gall bladders from black bears...and on and on. Basically they won't stop until what they want is extinct.
