    ITALY NOW Fossil-articleLarge
    Ancient Italian Town Has Wind at Its Back
    TOCCO DA CASAURIA, Italy — The towering white wind turbines that rise ramrod straight from gnarled ancient olive groves here speak to something extraordinary happening across Italy. Clean energy enables Tocco da Casauria, in a poor mountainous region, to pay for services like trash pickups without taxes or fees.

    Faced with sky-high electricity rates, small communities across a country known more for garbage than environmental citizenship are finding economic salvation in making renewable energy. More than 800 Italian communities now make more energy than they use because of the recent addition of renewable energy plants, according to a survey this year by the Italian environmental group Legambiente.

    Renewable energy has been such a boon for Tocco that it makes money from electricity production and has no local taxes or fees for services like garbage removal.

    A quintessential Italian town of 2,700 people in Italy’s poor mountainous center, with its well-maintained church and ruined castle, Tocco is in most ways stuck in yesteryear. Old men talking politics fill gritty bars, and old women wander through the market. The olive harvest is the most important event on the calendar.

    Yet, from an energy perspective, Tocco is very much tomorrow. In addition to the town’s wind turbines, solar panels generate electricity at its ancient cemetery and sports complex, as well as at a growing number of private residences.

    “Normally when you think about energy you think about big plants, but here what’s interesting is that local municipalities have been very active,” said Edoardo Zanchini, in charge of Legambiente’s energy division. “That this can happen in a place like Italy is really impressive.”

    Italy is an unlikely backdrop for a renewable revolution. It has been repeatedly criticized by the European Union for failing to follow the bloc’s environmental directives. It is not on track to meet either its European Union-mandated emissions-reduction target or its commitment to get 17 percent of its total power from renewable sources by 2020, experts say.

    Currently, only 7 percent of Italy’s power comes from renewable sources.

    Carol ,
    I hope you will forgive me for this .
    This is about Italy Now . But a different aspect . Here in Italy we have some of the Public Prosecutors who are not bought out or corrupt. In Anglo-Saxon countries things like this would not happen . For instance in Australia there would be a suppression order on an event like this one . The suppression order would prevent the press from publishing information about this . This explains why the case of a former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia has not reached the public yet . The guy is a creature of the secret services like Obama , but the public is not supposed to know about it . But below is what happens in Italy .

    No problem ENWO. I really do appreciate transparancey in government in all nations. I think there would be a lot less corruption and better behavior if the people filling these positions knew ahead of time whatever they do that is against humanity will be out in the open. This includes sex offenders too. Most of our presidents couldn't keep their zippers closed either. It's frustrating on multiple levels but at this point in time human nature for many in positions of power (this can be anywhere) to take advantage of those who are vulnerable.

    UPDATE 1-Nearly 1,000 Tunisian migrants reach Italy overnight
    * Italy govt declares "humanitarian emergency"

    * Foreign minister calls for EU boat, aircraft support

    * Tunisia says government will address the problem

    (Updates with Tunisian government comment)

    ROME, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Nearly 1,000 people escaping turmoil in Tunisia landed on an Italian island overnight on Sunday after the government declared a wave of illegal immigrants a humanitarian emergency.


    Struggling local authorities called for more support on Sunday to help handle the increasing stream of migrants into Lampedusa, a Sicilian island closer to Africa than mainland Italy, after thousands of arrivals in the past week.

    The situation has alarmed Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government, which proclaimed a humanitarian emergency following a meeting on Saturday, giving authorities extraordinary powers setting aside normal bureaucracy to control migrant flows, in part by blocking incoming boats off-shore.

    The interim government running Tunisia since its president was overthrown last month will discuss the issue, but Italy has yet to make direct contact with it about the problem, a government spokesman told Reuters.

    Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini on Sunday repeated calls to the European Union for help after one boat sank off Tunisia's coast on Saturday, with at least one migrant reported dead.

    "We have to mobilise countries around the Mediterranean which have boats, aircraft, helicopters," Frattini said in an interview with the Corriere Della Sera newspaper.

    I've spoted this recently and I remembered today again. Have you ever heard of this time phenomena happening recently on Sicilia, Italy? Or is it another fake story?

    Based on the “Corriere della Sera” (one of the most important newspapers in Italy) and Yahoo news, for a mysterious reason not yet understood, all digital clocks in Catania (The second most important city in Sicily) are running 20 minutes faster. Also some cities nearby Catania seems to be affected in the same way

    Sure They could. Digital Watches are essentially Electronic Watches that have Quartz movements in most cases...

    As Quartz is succeptible to both Frequency and Electromagnetics in a large way - Depending on the Magnitude of the Magnetic Anomaly experienced - This is of course a plausible excuse...

    My bet is the Anomaly in Italy will dry up or right Itself for now and all without an Official reason. Why ?

    Non-Linear time will move around until It all becomes the Now - Planetwide. This will occur in other places and has occcurred locally to Me and My Wife so I know Its variable and on the move.

    IMO - Italy (Catalina and other affected areas) has just become the first place to Offically note the Oddity as Its occurring and this is likely because of the large Magnitude of the Time error.

    ITALY NOW Empty Northern Italy hit by catastrophic floods

    Post  burgundia Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:10 am

    http://www.eutimes.net/2011/11/northern-italy-hit-by-catastrophic-floods-6-dead/

    At least six people were killed when the Italian port city of Genoa was hit by flash floods during torrential rainfall.

    Five of the victims, including two children, died when the lobby of an apartment block in which they had sought shelter flooded.

    A woman was apparently crushed by cars being swept away by the water.

    The Genoa city website advised people not to leave their homes and to climb to the upper floors.

    Several people are missing in the city.

    “This was a completely unexpected tragedy,” said Genoa mayor Marta Vicenzi.

    Television footage showed cars floating and people wading knee-deep through flooded streets in Genoa, the largest city on Italy’s north western coast.

    Hundreds of shops were flooded and emergency officials urged residents to move to high ground as two rivers burst their banks.

    Firefighters used rubber dinghies and divers to evacuate people, officials said.

    Motorways in the area were also closed off and flights re-routed away from the local airport.

    Sunday’s Serie A soccer match between local team Genoa and rivals Inter Milan has been postponed.

    Much of northern Italy was hit by heavy rains on Friday, and flooding was also reported in Venice.

    Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has given Italy’s civil protection chief extra authority to provide assistance to residents.

    "Euphoria may have returned briefly courtesy of yet another promise for a resignation that will likely not be effectuated for weeks or months, if at all, and already someone has done the math on what the events in the past several days reveal for Italy. That someone is Barcalys, the math is not pretty, and the conclusion is that "Italy is now mathematically beyond point of no return."

    ECB Preparing Italy Bailout, Massive Inflation Coming

    Italy's 10 year bond yields rose above 7% on Wednesday and economists from around the world are now proclaiming that these interest rates are unsustainable with Italy's national debt now 120% of its GDP. NIA believes the ECB is currently working on their largest bailout in history where they will commit to purchasing over €1 trillion of Italian bonds and bonds of other eurozone countries that are at risk of becoming insolvent. Despite the signals currently being given by the ECB, they will not allow Italy to fail because it will cause a Great Depression throughout the European Union, which will lead to the destruction of the eurozone.

    Economists today fail to realize that 10 year bond yields of 7% are normal for not just Italy, but the rest of the eurozone and the United States. If it wasn't for the ECB holding their benchmark interest rate at artificially low levels for over a decade, Italy and other eurozone countries wouldn't have the high levels of debt they do today and they would be able to withstand yields of 7% or higher. The ECB is entirely at fault for the European Debt Crisis and they are about to follow in the footsteps of the Federal Reserve by abandoning their objective of maintaining price stability and keeping inflation low.

    German 10 year bond yields declined again today to 1.72% and the spread between Germany and Italy is at a new record of 553 basis points. Germany is benefiting from safe haven buying from investors selling Italian bonds and buying German bonds, but investors will soon realize that German bonds are no better than Italian bonds and the world will dump all Euro denominated bonds.

    Bond investors currently expect very little inflation in the eurozone, as seen by Germany's low bond yields. The sole reason for the large spread between German and Italian bonds is Italy's greater risk of default. However, a default by Italy would lead to the failure of Germany's largest banks. Germany knows this but they don't want to raise inflation expectations by making the world think that the ECB will be monetizing Italy's debt. Therefore, Germany is now telling Italy to request aid from the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) if needed.

    Unfortunately, the EFSF doesn't have the financial resources to rescue a country the size of Italy. Last week, the EFSF had to cancel a €3 billion auction of 10 year bonds due to a lack of investor interest. On Monday, the EFSF finally had the bond sale, but was met with subdued interest that barely covered the €3 billion in bonds being offered. So far the EFSF has only raised a total of €13 billion through bond sales, but has received €440 billion in guarantees from eurozone countries. If Italy becomes a recipient of EFSF funding, the EFSF will lose one of their largest contributors.

    The EFSF is looking to leverage up its €440 billion in funding to over €1 trillion. The European Debt Crisis was caused by too much leverage and debt. It is complete insanity to believe that the EFSF is going to solve the debt crisis when it too is getting deeply into debt and planning to use huge leverage to increase their funds available for bailouts.

    There was recently a report that a proposal was made at the G20 summit last week in Cannes for Germany and other leading countries in the eurozone to pool together their foreign currency reserves including their gold reserves to back the EFSF, which would allow it to easily leverage up their funds and raise more money through bond sales. As soon as this report surfaced, Germany immediately announced to the world that they will not be using their gold reserves to boost the EFSF and that their gold reserves are "untouchable".

    Germany's unwillingness to use their gold reserves clearly shows that gold is the real safe haven where individuals should store their savings if they want to keep their purchasing power. Investors buying German 10 year bonds with a yield of only 1.72% should ask themselves why Germany is willing to fund the EFSF with Euros but not their gold. Maybe investors will come to their senses and change their mind about buying any Euro denominated bonds.

    For the past decade there has been a bond bubble in both Europe and the U.S. where we have seen bond yields at artificially low levels for an unprecedented amount of time. This has caused modern economists to believe that low bond yields are the new normal. When central banks interfere in the free market by manipulating interest rates to artificially low levels, it creates asset bubbles that eventually burst. When asset bubbles burst, the free market takes over and attempts to correct the damage by raising interest rates to extremely high levels, which encourages consumers to reduce their consumption and increase their savings.

    NIA believes that over the next five years, 10 year bond yields will reach double digit territory throughout the eurozone and the U.S. The free market wants countries like Greece and Italy to default on their debts and restructure them, which is why their bond yields are rising so high. Although Greece and Italy have the highest debt levels in the eurozone as a percentage of GDP, the whole entire eurozone borrowed too much and has too much debt. Germany and France both know that the failure of Italy will spread to them when German and French banks with Italian debt begin to fail. The EFSF will soon be exposed as a failure itself when it is unable to attract the funding necessary to rescue eurozone countries in need of bailouts. Unless the ECB decides to bailout eurozone countries through the EFSF by buying their bonds, the ECB will be forced to directly monetize debts across the entire eurozone.

    Even though the destruction of the eurozone seems imminent, NIA believes it will take time to play out. Most likely, in about two or three months from now the media will begin focusing its attention on the U.S. crisis. When the spotlight is off Italy, their bond yields will temporarily dip back down, but U.S. bond yields will skyrocket. The U.S. national debt is very close to breaking 100% of GDP, which will likely be a catalyst for investors to begin dumping their U.S. dollar denominated assets. The U.S. has unfunded liabilities many times the size of Italy's unfunded liabilities. Including unfunded liabilities, while Italy's total debts are approximately 300% of their GDP, the U.S. has total debts equaling about 600% of its GDP.

    Austerity cuts are becoming very common in the eurozone and although citizens still protest them, it has become politically acceptable for politicians in Italy and other eurozone countries to support them. Italy's cash budget deficit as a percentage of GDP is currently only 3.9% and their national debt has been barely growing. The U.S. cash budget deficit as a percentage of GDP is currently 8.7%, more than double Italy, and the U.S. national debt has been growing at a record rate. Americans are used to stimulus over austerity. Members of Congress are too afraid to make necessary spending cuts. The U.S. has a budget deficit from entitlement programs and interest payments on the debt alone.

    The supercommittee created by Congress to recommend $1.5 trillion in deficit reductions by November 23rd, so far hasn't agreed to make reductions to any entitlement programs. The Democrats and Republicans have so far only reached consensus on changing the way the government calculates inflation for Social Security cost of living adjustment (COLA) increases. They want to calculate inflation by using a new chain weighted CPI, which will understate inflation even more than the current CPI they use.

    Based on how the current CPI has been miscalculating inflation for decades, Social Security recipients today should be receiving approximately triple their current payments. All Americans should be outraged that the government is planning to once again reduce the deficit through deception, when they should be eliminating wasteful government agencies like the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, and the Department of Homeland Security, while bringing our troops home from the middle east and immediately cutting overseas military spending in half so that we have the resources to better protect ourselves at home.

    The extremely high levels of debt in both Europe and the U.S. need to be liquidated as soon as possible. If Italy can't sustain itself with 7% interest rates, which is only average on a historical basis, think about how large the crisis will be in the U.S. when interest rates here reach 15% as price inflation spirals out of control. Less than three months ago Italy's interest rates were below 5%. Fundamentally, Italy's economy is the same as it was three months ago, but perceptions in the marketplace change quickly. Today, U.S. treasuries are still perceived to be a safe haven, but this will change 180 degrees in no time.

    Just like how the U.S. government understates inflation when calculating COLA adjustments, they also understate inflation when calculating GDP growth. The U.S. recently reported 3Q GDP growth of 1.62% on a year-over-year basis, which used a price deflator of only 2.52%. If they used the real rate of price inflation, they would have reported negative GDP growth. The Federal Reserve just lowered forecasts for U.S. GDP growth in 2012 to between 2.5% and 2.9%, down from a forecast in June of between 3.3% and 3.7%. In order to ensure that we even meet the Fed's new projections, the Fed will soon be launching QE3. NIA predicts that the Fed will use fears of contagion from the European Debt Crisis as their excuse for launching QE3 in the near-future. Combined with massive inflation from Europe as the ECB monetizes debt to save banks with exposure to Italian bonds, gold will soon skyrocket to new all time highs with silver likely beginning to once again outperform gold.

    Super Globalist to Replace Italy’s Berlusconi

    Kurt Nimmo
    Infowars.com
    November 11, 2011

    SNIP
    "Now that Silvio Berlusconi has fallen on his sword – but not before making sure Italians suffer austerity – the globalists can make their move and insert one of their trusted minions: former EU Commissioner Mario Monti.

    “Analysts are excited about the strong possibility that former EU Commissioner Mario Monti will head up a new national unity government in Italy,” reports Business Insider.

    Goldman Sachs and the financial elite are pushing for “a government more amenable to reforms that encourage growth and improve governance… Markets would approve of this kind of coalition.

    In other words, they are angling for the wholesale looting of the Italian economy and bankster privatization resulting in mass unemployment, wage cuts, pension thievery, and public services fire sales.

    “Super Mario” Monti is a perfect choice to overlord the pillaging. He completed his graduate studies under James Tobin at Yale. Tobin was a Keynesian economist who served on the Council of Economic Advisors and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. "

    Italy braces for new government, IMF warns Asia on euro
    http://news.yahoo.com/italy-pushes-austerity-law-greek-pm-sworn-005629702.html
    ROME/ATHENS (Reuters) - Italy's parliament was set to approve austerity measures on Saturday, triggering the formation of an emergency government to replace that of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, and meeting European Union demands to avert a euro zone meltdown.

    After months of dither and delay, Rome appears to have got the message as bond markets pushed it to the brink of needing a bailout that the euro zone cannot afford.
    President Giorgio Napolitano and Italian lawmakers have put the process on a fast track: the Chamber of Deputies was due to start debating at 1130 GMT (6:30 a.m. EST) and final approval of the cuts by the lower house marks the Berlusconi government's final act.

    Berlusconi was expected to hold a last cabinet meeting and then hand his resignation to Napolitano at the Quirinale Palace.

    A largely technocratic government headed by former European Commissioner Mario Monti was seen in place by Sunday night or Monday morning.

    The problem is that Mario Monti is a Bilderberger and member of the Trilateral commission . He also worked for the criminal Goldman Sachs . So he is eminently qualified to screw the Italian population . What's happening in Italy today is a Coup d'etat organized by the President of the republic Napolitano . A lot of alternative news sites know exactly what's going on . It is mathematically impossible for Italy to repay a 2 trillion debt . To try to do so it would take many decades of suffering for the population . The solution is to default completely and refuse to pay any debt . The solution advocated in the video below is " Debt Jubelee " or debt forgiveness .

    Because this problem of economic Boom and BUST is recurring after decades , it is obvious that this economic system based on banks calling the shots and running the government does not work . As a matter of fact , the whole economic system is not working , it has been debunked by am Australian professor of economic . His name is Steve Keen the author of "debunking economics " .
    Mankind has to find another economic system . Economic is not a science , it is called actually in Universities " the Dismal Science " .

    Another aspect of this situation is that debt that are incurred without the consent of the population are defined as " ODIOUS DEBT " . It is the same situation as when the MAFIA puts a gun against your head ..... Odious debt . Odious debt should not be paid and the law protects the victim .

    economics is more akin to religion,

    it is a set of beliefs enforced upon people through fear
    and the cohesion of power by the wealthy and governments they control

    and the reaping of funds from the poor to sustain the rich
    though unjust wages, slave labor, taxation for bailouts of the rich.

    November 14 2011: The Growth Paradigm Has Become An Embarrassment


    http://theautomaticearth.blogspot.com/2011/11/november-14-2011-growth-paradigm-has.html


    The great euro Putsch rolls on as two democracies fall

    SNIP

    In Italy, the European Central Bank has engineered the downfall of Silvio Berlusconi by playing the bond markets, switching purchases on and off to enforce compliance with its written dictates ("La Lettera"), and ultimately allowing 10-year yields to spike to 7.45pc to drive him out. "

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/ambroseevans_pritchard/8887193/The-great-euro-Putsch-rolls-on-as-two-democracies-fall.html


    A few years ago , it was revealed that a lady escort attended one of the Berlusconi's parties. She took along a cassette recorder hidden in a hand bag . At that time I already speculated that that particular lady was going to blackmail Berlusconi . The press was never approving of the friends of Mr Berlusconi . His friends were Gaddafi and Putin . We know that those two individuals were never the pin up boys of the corrupted western press . There is another important factor to conisder , the Italian press was fed transcripts of his conversation by the magistrates . Most of those conversations were perfectly innocent and demonstrate that perhaps a gross abuse of a person's privacy was perpetrated by the magistrature .
    There is suspicion that the judiciary are eminently corrupt . I am not saying that Berlusconi is an angel . I am saying that in the light of what happened , Berlusconi is a victim of a coup d'etat and his human defects were used to diminish him as a person in front of the public . The coup execution was masterful , because , the unsuspecting crowd actually applauded Berlusconi resignation .
    Make no mistake . Italy will be sold off for a song to the friends of Monti in Goldman Sachs .

    This pretty much sums it up Arrowwind. It boils down to who controls the purse strings and how did they get there.

    However, the populace OWS movement is akin to little mice chewing a hole in the purse. If all of these people make the effort to withdraw their money from big banks and deposit it into credit unions and smaller local banks then perhaps there will be a change.

    It is really bad in Italy weather wise.. I have just finished speaking with my sister. Thousands of animals have died, a roof of a stable collapsed and killed 30 Arabian horses. In some areas there is no power, no water, the cars can't get to the people to bring them food, there is 4 meters of snow. Within the last 10 days 60 people have lost their lives. In northern Italy, in Triest the winds had the speed of 190 km/hour.
    in other countires in the area is not better...
