Canada was the first country to state that a so-called antiracist conference that contained a major component of extreme racism-in this case, anti-Semitism-should be boycotted. When Ahmadinejad, an inciter to genocide par excellence, spoke at the conference, all representatives of those EU countries that attended Durban II walked out. The Czech Republic thereafter decided to leave the conference Peter's rock in Mohammed's flood: from St. Gregory the Great to St. Leo III.

Presidents Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping know Clinton and they know what to expect from this conventional political leader, yet, they prefer Trump Born of Evil: In The Days of Noah. The id ea of discretionary income is probably the financial economy's closest concept to energy surplus, and the idea of savings is the financial economy's closest idea to stored energy.� As the American middle class has been shrinking, discretionary income has been vanishing. �That trend happened in history's richest and most powerful nation during the 40 years since energy consumption began declining.� Global oil production peaked in 2006, and the rest of the world's nations will decline like the USA has, but from a far lower initial plateau. �Those are the important measures, not financial ones. �In a world of scarcity, the exchange function of economics assumes great importance at the social level, as people scrap for their piece of the scarce economic pie. �But fighting over slices does not help grow the pie. �In a world of abundance, money and financial concepts truly become meaningless History of Civilization in England, Volume 1. As wi th previous critical events, such as saving the oceans and life on Earth itself, life helped terraform Earth.� But the late Devonian is an instance when the rise of land plants may have also had Medean effects.� Carbon dioxide sequestering, which reduced the atmosphere�s carbon dioxide concentration by up to 80%, may have cooled Earth�s surface enough so that an ice age began and another one of Earth�s mass extinctions began.� As with the Ordovician extinction, the ultimate cause for the Devonian extinctions seems to have been rising and falling sea levels, associated with growing and receding ice caps, as Gondwana still covered the South Pole .� Dev onian extinction events began happening more than 380 mya, and a major one happened about 375 mya, called the Kellwasser event .� The reasons for the Kellwasser event are today generally attributed to the water becoming cold and anoxic. [265] � A bolide impact has been invoked in some scientific circles, but the evidence is weak. [266] � Mountain-building and volcanic events also happened as continents began colliding to eventually form Pangaea (and the resultant silicate and basaltic weathering removed carbon dioxide from the atmosphere), and those dynamics may have been like what precipitated the previous major mass extinction. [267] � Black shales abounded during and after the Kellwasser event, and they are always evidence of anoxic conditions and how the oil deposits initially formed.� However, the Kellwasser event anoxia may have not only been due to low atmospheric oxygen, but was also the result of eroding the newly exposed land and the detritus of the new forest biomes, which created a vast nutrient runoff into the oceans that may have initiated huge algal blooms that caused anoxic events near shore. [268] Unlike the short, severe Ordovician events, the Devonian extinctions may have stretched for up to 25 million years, with periodic pulses of extinction.� The Kellwasser event seems to be comprised of several extinction events, and when they ended, at least 70% of all marine species went extinct and the greatest reefs in Earth�s history were 99.98% eradicated.� It took 100 million years before major reef systems again appeared. [269] � Arm ored fish and jawless fish lost half of their species, and armored fish were rendered entirely extinct in the event that ended the Devonian Loose-leaf Version for A History of Western Society, Volume I.

How could the history of one nation span 3000 years? How did they build such remarkable monuments to antiquity? Why did intelligent humans mummify themselves? Why do most history books on Western Civilization allot this culture only a scant twenty pages at best The Seven Great Monarchies of the Ancient Eastern World, Part VI (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press)? Tamil has certainly changed a lot less in 2000 years than Mandarin Chinese. India also has a lot more preserved historical monuments (the Sanchi Stupa dates from 300 BC, China's oldest temple is only from 500 AD). One could also make the same argument for Greece, Egypt, Rome or even the Hebrews.etc Appreciations and Criticisms of the Works of Charles Dickens.
