Culture popped – in shades of turquoise, pink, salmon, and, if one color wasn’t enough, delicious two-tones. Madison Avenue created an unlikely world of perfect appliances and perfect families, of highballs and hi-fis, Bermuda shorts and backyard barbecues. In the ads, the wives are beautiful (mowing the lawn in peasant blouses and a hint of lingerie); the children above average (exuberantly joining in the Saturday morning car wash). Over the clink of ice cubes, Americans mingled and misbehaved.
A new paper based on top climate models says that by about 2047, average temperatures across the globe will be higher than any highs recorded previously, with tropics hit earlier.
(Note: The New International Version reads as follows for Genesis 2:18-20: "18 The Lord God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.' 19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam no suitable helper was found." The NIV's use of the phrase "had formed" in verse 19 seems to allude to the earlier creation in Genesis 1, and perhaps God is merely bringing the existing animals before Adam. However, in verse 18 God declares "I will make...". This declaration indicates that God is about to create something, not just import existing animals.)
I have to give 1940s commentators credit; they understood the , and better than I often see it today. They understood that if there was an abundant source of energy, Utopia was possible. Socialists quickly understood that the "free energy" that nuclear energy could make possible would undermine capitalism, as the profit motive would be a poor one for denying prosperity to all of Earth's people, and would not be tolerated. One socialist tract argued that the soaring standard of living that abundant energy would make possible could ensure that no child on Earth would "carry the grime of poverty on his face and soul." Socialists also realized that atomic energy would be a disaster if controlled by military and capitalist interests. Other commentators disparaged the prosperity that nuclear energy would bring, as people would simply have too much time on their hands, which could "doom" civilization.

The GCs are not squeamish, but they rarely resort to violence in the public arena; they know that a string of deaths and health "events" threaten to focus attention on their efforts. When the GCs’ minions engage in lethal interventions, either by direct murder or throwing people such as Dennis and letting “nature” take its course, what seems to be more important than killing the target in any particular attempt is making it appear to be something other than premeditated murder. I am not at liberty to publicly disclose details of numerous murder attempts that have been described to me either from the target or secondhand by highly credible associates, but it is not easy to murder somebody and make it look like (, , , , , and the like), and if an attempt initially fails, the assassins will not “” them like more mundane assassins will, such as Mafia hit men, as it removes any doubt that it was premeditated murder. If the target survives the initial attempt, the assassins will withdraw and try again another time, since making it look like something else is more important than achieving success with any one attempt. That is probably why some FE activists have survived numerous murder attempts. Also, a failed attempt can often have the desired effect, as it can frighten or incapacitate the target to the extent that he (almost always a man, not a woman) is no longer a threat in the disruptive technology field, FE most of all, and further action is unnecessary.
