Pope’s Concern for Global Warming is Hot Air, say Scientists

Thousands of scientists say global warming is not a crisis. The Pentagon’s High-Altitude Auroral Research Project (HAARP) affects weather, causing hurricanes and earthquakes is used by the pope to support his Laudato Si’ agenda for closing business on Sunday, claiming blessings of Eucharist and family values.

“The yearly global land and ocean temperature has increased at an average rate of 0.07°C (0.13°F) per decade since 1880; however, the average rate of increase is twice as great since 1980.” That means it will take ~4 decades to raise the temperature 1 degree Fahrenheit. https://www.co2.earth/global-warming-update

Global warming is not the problem–it’s the hurricanes and and earthquakes that can be blamed on “a little know Pentagon project” in Alaska where microwave towers beam high energy into the ionosphere to be reflected into the ocean, heating it to create hurricanes or earthquakes. (Popular Science, Sept, 1995)

HAARP–High Altitude Aurora Research Project is the name that can be Googled or seen on YouTube, says Richard Ruhling, author on current events and The Alpha & Omega Bible Code. He notes that the Pentagon’s CIA has been called Catholics In Action, aiding a papal agenda. (Google).

Dr. Ruhling says the pope’s push for global warming includes his encyclical, Laudato Si, that details his agenda for Sunday to close businesses for the Eucharist and church attendance. While most of the world might not care, it is not equal freedom for Muslims, Jews or non-believers and it parallels the Edict of Constantine, a Roman emperor and sun worshipper who made the first Sunday law and persecuted Sabbath-keepers.

Sunday is touted as “the Lord’s day” but it’s found only once in the book of Acts while “Sabbath” is found nine times, three times as “every Sabbath.” The United States can’t go for Sunday because “Congress shall make no laws respecting the establishment of religion.” (1st Amendment)

All should be free to worship or not worship God as they see fit. Coercion by law against freedom of worship will bring tyranny as when Rome ruled Europe and early American pioneers risked their lives at sea for freedom in a New World. (Ruhling)

The pope said, “the Bible is an extremely dangerous book.” (Google) Yes, it unmasks his agenda to rule the world, seen in Revelation 17 where a woman (church) rides the beast (government) New World Order. Revelation 18 says all nations are deceived by pharmakeia Rome’s link to pharmacy and chemtrails are seen here, https://youtu.be/RetQCngtOp4

Ruhling visited Latin America and says since priests colonized and did little to educate them, the pope should help their economy rather than send them to the US for education, healthcare food stamps and voting.

What is a CAS Registry Number?

The Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) is part of the American Chemical Society, and it is used to maintain a database of chemical compounds, substances, and alloys. The CAS database contains over 100 million different chemical compounds. Each CAS entry is identified by a specific number called CAS Registry Number (Cas.org, 2018).

CAS Registry Number refers to a maximum of ten digits which are assigned to a compound when CAS registers a new compound. The digits are divided into three groups that are separated by a hyphen. The first group has 2 to 7 digits, the second has two digits, and the last group has one digit. The CAS Registry Number has no significance to the chemical nature of the compounds. It offers an alternative way of identifying a chemical instead of using its name. Various compounds have more than one name.

An example is ethanol which is also known as hydroxyethane, grain alcohol, absolute alcohol, ethyl hydrate, and ethyl alcohol. One CAS Registry Number 64-17-5 identifies all these names. CAS Registry Numbers, therefore, provides a useful way of identifying a compound over its name. The numbers are also used to distinguish between two or more stereoisomers of a compound. Glucose, for instance, exists in two forms, D and L. the two types of glucose have different CAS Registry Numbers (ThoughtCo, 2018).

CAS Registry Numbers do not depend on any system of chemical nomenclature. As seen from the above information, a CAS Registry Number is unique and specific to only one compound or substance regardless of several other ways the substances are described. Government agencies regularly use it because the CAS Registry Numbers are unique, can be validated quickly and reliably, and they are internationally recognized. The CASRN avoids confusion between compounds that have similar names or abbreviation and in chemicals that have multiple names (Cas.org, 2018).

Earth Science Information Systems (EScIS) offer a free CAS number resource to help you search for CAS registry numbers. The free tool is used to access thousands of CAS numbers and Chemical Names in a searchable format.

Chemicals can be searched either by the chemical name, e.g. Lead, or by their CAS number, e.g. 1335-32-6. Where no CAS number exists for a chemical, an ESDat ChemCode is available. The searchable database includes over 5500 chemical names and CAS numbers.

For each chemical name and CAS code, links to further resources are available. These include NIST. (National Institute of Standards and Technology Standard Reference Database); Scorecard data (for information on pollutant problems and toxic chemicals); USEPA IRIS. (The United States Environmental Protection Agency Integrated Risk Information System); and IPCS INCHEM. (International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS) and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS)).

Metro Mining: surface water and groundwater environmental data management and reporting using ESdat software.

Metro Mining, an award-winning mining group, has adopted ESdat Data Management Software developed by Earth Science Information Systems (EScIS). Metro Mining Limited is an Australian exploration and mining company based in Brisbane, Queensland. Metro commenced mining operations at its flagship project, the Bauxite Hills Mine, 95 km north of Weipa on western Cape York, in April this year.

Metro conducts surface water and groundwater environmental monitoring to meet operating licence conditions, as well as drinking water and sewage treatment analysis. Metro approached EScIS seeking a centralised data collection/storage solution, enabling visibility of data trends to guide and assess corrective actions. Management and reporting of lab data formed the key focus, together with field data collected during sampling events.

EScIS worked with Metro to confirm ESdat Online as the right ESdat solution to meet their specific needs. The intuitive interface of ESdat Online has resulted in a rapid uptake within Metro’s operations. Automated lab report import ensures results are captured wholly and efficiently. With a few clicks, data of interest can then be presented in tables or maps for interpretation. New data is easily compared with historical data that was imported into ESdat Online with assistance from EScIS.

“Having worked with a number of databases over the course of our combined environmental management careers, the environmental team at Metro Mining has found ESdat to be extremely user-intuitive and simple to use. We appreciate that our laboratory data is migrated across to ESdat at the click of a button, saving us time, resources and more importantly limiting human error. I would strongly recommend ESdat to not only other mine sites, but to any industry needing an easily navigable and cost-efficient database to manage their water quality data storage needs.”

– Environment Officer – Metro Mining
Metro Mining Ltd has officially been recognised as Australia’s leading Emerging Mining Company. Metro received the award at the internationally known “Diggers & Dealers Mining Forum” in Kalgoorlie, 8 August.

Congratulations Metro Mining!

Efficient and accurate lab data import and comparison when using CAS numbers (Chemical Abstract System) and ChemCodes.

When combining environmental data from different sources, or comparing data against environmental standards there is a need to ensure a certain level of standardisation to overcome variations in naming of chemical compounds: (ie Fe (total), Fe (Total), Total Iron, and Iron (total)) particularly if this same problem applies to a large number of chemicals.

To provide a consistent point of reference for different compound names the CAS (Chemical Abstract Service) numbering system is used where possible. CAS provides a unique and consistent code for each compound. Laboratory data is typically provided with a code for each chemical, however, occasionally a code will not be offered or will not be consistent with the database. Historical data will need codes to be assigned. ESdat, Environmental Data Management software, has functionality used during data import to assign or resolve problems with ChemCodes. You can compare and match your ChemCodes with the standard ESdat list provided to laboratories.

A set of ChemCodes in your system that has evolved and deviated from the standard set maintained by EScIS as part of the ESdat software results in a number of problems including inefficiencies in the import of laboratory reports; difficulties in comparing data from different laboratories; and deviations from the ChemCodes used in the Environmental Standards compiled by EScIS. Differences from the standard set of ChemCodes places an additional burden on users who are responsible for ensuring the lab reports all import correctly.

Recent functionality available in ESdat Server allows users to automatically update their ChemCode list from the list centrally maintained by EScIS for their region. Automatically updating ChemCodes assists all users to ensure their record is consistent with the codes that are provided for laboratories to use and avoids adjustments needing to be made during the import process. As new ChemCodes are added (e.g. for PFAS) it also allows for users to add these to their system efficiently.

The ability to synch onsite systems with EScIS’s standard ChemCode list is complemented by the recent release of LabSynch, which provides for lab reports to be automatically loaded into the system with no user involvement in the import or in any error resolution process.

For more information on ESdat Server and efficiently maintaining your ChemCode list see the ESdat website.

Advanced Electronic Chain of Custody Software

Esdat Data Management Software provides a complete data tracking and management system and with the LSPECS extension offers Lab Sample Planning, electronic Chain of Custody and Signoff.

What is Chain of Custody?
Chain of custody refers to the process of collecting, storing, protecting, and documenting samples or evidence. Creating and maintaining a chain of custody requires a person to keep a detailed log of everything that happens, for example, to the evidence before a legal trial. Chain of custody is applied in different fields such as the investigation of crimes and testing of drugs. The chain begins at the collection of a specimen by specialists conducting a crime scene investigation or scientists and consultants collecting samples. When evidence and samples are obtained, documentation begins. The place where the evidence was found or specimen was taken is recorded. This is done by taking notes and photographs. The samples are labelled with a number. The specimen is then measured, and further documentation is made. It is important that when the specimen is collected it is not contaminated. For example, personal protective equipment is used to prevent contamination. The process of handling with care and documenting the whole process continues until the specimen gets to the final stage where the sample is used (Botnick et al., 2005).

A chain of custody acts as an assurance that the specimen has not been altered or tampered with either in the process of copying or analysis. For a long time, the documentation process was done by taking notes and writing on a piece. However, with the advancement in technology, computers are taking over the whole process of a chain of custody (Botnick et al., 2005).

A drug test, environmental specimen and evidence meant to convict a person in court require careful handling, and this is what chain of custody does. In general, a chain of custody plays a vital role in ensuring that a piece of evidence used to convict a person is valid or a drug/environmental specimen tested has not been tampered with in any way. With the advancement of technology, electronic chain of custody is currently being used. Instead of documenting the information on papers, the data is entered or imported into a computer. Electronic chain of custody has various advantages (Botnick et al., 2005).

Electronic chain of custody
When an electronic chain of custody is compared to the standard chain of custody which is completed by hand, electronic documents have various advantages such as reduced paperwork to manage, accurate data, and smooth delivery of copies to relevant authorities. Other benefits of an electronic chain of custody are faster specimen collections, reduced of flaws, fewer data entry issues, and improved overall efficiency.

When using ESdat Environmental Data Management System, all data is tracked and backed up electronically; there is no scope for transcription errors or loss of paper-based records. See here for more information on electronic chain of custody.
