'Cometas eólicas' captarán la energía de la atmósfera

·Situados a alta altitud, supondrían una fuente inagotable de energía eléctrica.

El viento a alta altitud tiene una potencia suficiente como para generar toda la energía eléctrica que necesita nuestra sociedad. Esto es lo que ha revelado un análisis de dicha potencia en distintas partes del mundo, realizado por investigadores de la Stanford University. Para aprovechar la energía eólica de la atmósfera terrestre, científicos y compañías están diseñando actualmente dispositivos especializados. Son las llamadas “cometas eólicas” que, si superan ciertos escollos, podrían ser la solución a todos los problemas energéticos de la Tierra.

Dispelling Vaccination Myths

·An introduction to the contradictions between medical science and immunization policy.
by Alan Phillips aphillip@email.unc.edu

Is there a legitimate controversy?
When my son began his routine vaccination series at age 2 months, I did not know there were any risks associated with immunizations. But the clinic's literature contained a contradiction: the chances of a serious adverse reaction to the DPT vaccine were 1 in 1750, while his chances of dying from pertussis each year were 1 in several million. When I pointed this out to the physician, he angrily disagreed, and stormed out of the room mumbling, "I guess I should read that sometime..." Soon thereafter I learned of a child who had been permanently disabled by a vaccine, so I decided to investigate for myself. My findings have so alarmed me that I feel compelled to share them; hence, this report.
"Vaccines are completely safe..."
...or are they?
The FDA's VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System) receives about 11,000 reports of serious adverse reactions to vaccination annually, some 1% (112+) of which are deaths from vaccine reactions. The majority of these reports are made by doctors, and the majority of deaths are attributed to the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine, the "P" in DPT. This figure alone is alarming, yet it is only the "tip of the iceberg." The FDA estimates that only about 10% of adverse reactions are reported, a figure supported by two National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) investigations. In fact, the NVIC reported that "In New York, only one out of 40 doctor's offices (2.5%) confirmed that they report a death or injury following vaccination," -- 97.5% of vaccine related deaths and disabilities go unreported there. Implications about the integrity of medical professionals aside (doctors are legally required to report serious adverse events), these findings suggest that vaccine deaths actually occurring each year may be well over 1,000.
"Vaccination causes significant death and disability at an astounding personal and financial cost to families and taxpayers."
