  1. clean energy ,and the solution for the Greenland gulfstream slowdown:

    Put in sea a construction of windmills (out of the reach of icebergs) combined with electric boilers, these get preheated by suncollectors and sunmirrors.
    the steam they produce gets used by steam engines wich produce again electricity ,salt and when you condesate the steam coming from the steam engines sweet water,the steam you don’t need you blow into the air.
    You take out salt water coming from the warm gulfstream and the left over salt from the steam engines gets used to release in the cold stream.
    So the cold stream gets saltier again and and won’t mingel with the warm gulfstream because before it was less saltier caused by the melting gletchers and slowing down the warm gulfstream becaurse less saltier water is lighter.
    Preventing an possibel iceage.
    The sweet water can then be used to make hydrogen ,so if there is for exampel a lot of wind and you don’t need all that electricity , you are abel to stock it and use it later.
    The rest of the steam you blow in the air.
    The oxygen deriving from turning water into hydrogen can be devided in sea to clean the water and to make more suitabel for marinelife.
    So you produce electricity and /or hydrogen
    Wich you get to shore with pipelines or from tanks with tankers and cabels

  2. Category 4 financial storm measured in billions of dollars.

    $6+ Billion in bonuses for Goldman Sachs.

    $6+ Billion in bonuses for Morgan Stanley.

    $66 billion in bonuses are being set aside for the ‘engineers’ who perpetrated ‘the storm’ in the financial system and the real global economy.

    These monstrously greedy people in dark, pin striped suits who have pillaged the capitalist system and ruined humanity’s political economy by turning it into a gambling casino and stealing its wealth for themselves and their minions are the same people who are now warning honorable people not to dismantle the global economy.
