John Prescott’s New Earth Deal Kills The Planet

7743755MORE news on John Prescott, the former deputy Prime Minister who’s turning into Britain’s version of Al Gore.

Anorak was at the Rich Mix building in Bethnal Green, London to see John Prescott holding up his Blackberry to show off the ‘New Earth Deal‘ climate change campaign website.

Prezza then spoke about “chimate clange” and the causes of “globals warning“.

But if Prezza is to be Al Gore, he needs to select the science he will champion. first up: mobile phones kill crops:

It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world’s harvests fail.

They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world – the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops.

The theory is that radiation from mobile phones interferes with bees’ navigation systems, preventing the famously homeloving species from finding their way back to their hives. Improbable as it may seem, there is now evidence to back this up.

Mobile phones heat up the oceans

Chinese state media have of course been silent on the next environmental disaster China is causing for the world, but fortunately, the Dutch media are on top of it. While in China the number of mobile callers is rapidly nearing the half billion, a group of fifty scientists in Columbia have revealed that mobile phones contribute to global warming.

Not the batteries are the problem, but the billions of calls heat up the waves.

And what of that swanky new website Prezza is championing? Well:

Websites kill the planet

Dr. Alexander Wissner-Gross, Environmental Fellow at Harvard University studying the environmental impact of computing, says that each second of web browsing generates around 20 milligrams of CO2…

Shocker Statistic:

% of world’s greenhouse gases created by the manufacturing, use and disposal of information and communication technology: 2%

% of world’s greenhouse gases created by the entire aviation industry: 2%

Says vomiting Prezza: “Better out than in…”
