Encroaching salt water, a symptom of wetland erosion, threatens these Louisiana Cypress trees.

Saving Cajun Country
Archeologists and engineers will soon be using NASA satellite data to restore endangered wetlands without accidentally destroying Native American cultural sites.
Now the temple mound is gone, washed away along with much of the wetlands of the Louisiana coast. An epidemic of erosion, rising sea-levels, and slowly sinking land has been eating away at these wetlands at the rapid pace of 25 to 35 square miles each year (65 to 91 square km). With the wetlands goes the homeland of Comardelle's Cajun culture, as well as the buried relics of the Native American cultures that came before it.
Human Alteration of the flow of the Mississippi is the primary culprit.
Flood-control levees along its banks prevent the river from spilling out into the surrounding wetlands.
Sediment from the river would normally build up the wetlands and help counter erosional processes. Levees, however, block the influx of sediment and erosion goes unchecked.
NOW...FREE ENERGY FOR LIFE!
A patent was granted on March 26, 2002 for "The Motionless Magnetic Generator," MEG) US Patent 6,362,718,
which is likely to become the first commercially available free energy device in history in about one year from now.
The machine will provide free electricity from the vacuum, for the life of the device,
which should be a very long life since it has no moving parts.
ITS Real! Free Energy Machine

Astronomers around the world have continued to track this interesting body and provide measurements of its position.

AURORA WARNING: Twisted magnetic fields near giant sunspot 69 erupted on Friday, Aug. 16th. The explosion sparked an M5-class solar flare and hurled a coronal mass ejection toward Earth. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25-30% chance of severe geomagnetic storms when the cloud arrives--probably on Sunday, Aug. 18th. Sky watchers should be alert for
HEART-SHAPED SUNSPOT: Sunspot 69 is still big--many times larger than Earth itself. On Friday it also looked remarkably like a heart. You can see for yourself, but never look directly at the Sun. Use safe solar

August 16th Large Solar Storm
See Space weather NOW
Beginning this Sunday evening, August 11th, lots of meteors will appear over Earth's northern hemisphere when our planet plows through a dense swarm of dust shed by periodic comet Swift-Tuttle. The disintegrating specks will unleash a beautiful meteor shower called the Perseids, which peaks on August 12th and 13th.

Terrorism: Bush knew of 911 attacks: Learn the TRUTH!
The American People Speak Out!
Many Israeli nationals who worked at the World Trade Center we told not to go to work on 9-11!
....Just weeks before Sept. 11, President Bush was warned that Osama bin Laden might be plotting a terrorist hijacking in the United States, a threat that was passed on privately to some federal agencies: "I don't need to learn how to land!" Says, the soon to be terrorist, at Arizona flight school...
Many brokers heavely sold stock on the afternoon before the attack!
Many, Many More incidents tell the horrendous tale of betrayal, and How the Bush administration turned its eyes from the TRUTH!!....WHY!!! ???? What is really going on in this WAR for OIL! ??
The central region of our Milky Way galaxy
In the most suspenseful detective stories, the mystery deepens even as the plot reveals more clues. So has it been in real life for astrophysicists investigating the center of our Milky Way galaxy. They hoped that NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory would reveal a long-suspected black hole there -- and indeed it did. But Chandra's revelations have raised new questions that baffle scientists perhaps even more than before.
