Editor of The Economist explains meaning of 2015 cover illustration

Please read Dr. Eowyn’s article on the same subject: 
Rothschild-owned The Economist’s 2015 cover full of unsettling symbols

economist_magazine_jan2015The following is excerpted from a YourNewsWire.com article attempting to find some clarity on the very strange cover art. I did a search for the name of the illustrator of the cover art, and was very surprised to read there was no illustrator. The cover, they say, was created by a committee. This would explain the shameless borrowing of the Beatles album cover theme.

I have removed the theories expressed on VigilantCitizen.com, and show only the explanation given by The Economist’s editor. 

So here is The Economist’s explanation of the cover. ~TD 


Controversial Economist 2015 Cover Illustration Explained!

By Salli LaBelle Platt and Jacqui Deevoy

There’s been much controversy over the meaning of The Economist’s new year cover. YourNewsWire speaks to Editor Daniel Franklin about what those images actually mean…


BLACK & WHITE FACES

economist-2015-response

Daniel Franklin, Editor of The Economist says: “The black & white versus the colour faces was a decision based purely on the strength of the design. There is no differentiation with the people featured in colour or not – it’s merely a way of representing a bunch of relevant folk in order that this be a stronger front cover.”


TWO FACED GLOBE

two-faced-globe

Daniel Franklin says: “Represents the rise of Nationalism and how it may be a world of conflict with regard to agreements. Many nations involved, some places angry, unsettled, others less so. The two faces of the moon disagreeing with itself as depicted on different sides. The article it refers to is called ‘Nationalism is Back’ and can be found in the International Section.”


DRONE

Daniel Franklin says: “The drone is relevant to the US Section, where there is an article on the Fed Aviation Society who are set to announce the rules this Autumn on the regulations on Drone use in America. (To be found in the US Section).”


ROCKET

rocketDaniel Franklin says: “’New Horizons’ space probe which will be flying by Pluto in 2015 (the article on this is on page 137 of the UK edition of the magazine). However, at the last minute, after the cover had gone to press, they decided to use an illustration for that story showing the distance New Horizons had travelled to Pluto, which is why you won’t find the picture inside the magazine.”


NUCLEAR MUSHROOM CLOUD

Daniel Franklin says: “The mushroom cloud relates to the story on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty yearly review conference, set to take place in New York – article to be found in the ‘International’ Section.”


PIGGY BANK

Daniel Franklin says: “The piggy bank flying from David Cameron’s chest
 relates to the article on how small banks should do well this year.”


SPIDERMAN

Daniel Franklin says: “This iIllustration relates to the article on Hollywood 2015. ‘Lights, Camera, Fraction’, focusing on the downward spiral of wages and superhero movies being very popular whilst implying it’s less important as to who is behind the mask – i.e. a cheaper actor/actress would be used as opposed to the Celebrity A class. (Page 124, UK version).”


LEONARDO DA VINCI PAINTING

Daniel Franklin says: “The New Abu Dhabi LOUVRE Museum set to open this year. Apparently, the painting in the cover illustration may be one of the debut masterpieces loaned for the opening exhibition of this venue. (See feature in the Books & Arts section.)


ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THE CHESHIRE CAT

Daniel Franklin says: “It’s the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland. No particular reason for this part of the story to be depicted other than it is recognisable as such. The pile of dirt is actually a pile of sand and relates to the article on Abu Dhabi museum.” (See above.)


ARROWS WITH NUMBERS

arrows

Daniel Franklin says: “The arrows are taken from the graphic illustrating the story of China’s economy “The numbers to watch” and are Chinese ‘targets’. As it happens, the numbers on the graphic were adjusted in the fact-checking process after the cover went to press.”


CRICKET BALL

Daniel Franklin says: “We featured a white cricket ball because cricket world cup played with a white ball. There is the rugby world cup and the women’s football world cup all this year.”


GHOST with HOLIDAY BROCHURE

Daniel Franklin says: “This is all about predictive programming on your mobile/handheld devices. The phone could tell you when you are on holiday and support your lifestyle ~ helpful but at the same time arguably a little creepy, hence the ghoul image use.”


TURTLE

Daniel Franklin says: “Lonesome George” the famous turtle who died in 2012 is to be returned to the Galápagos Islands this year. The story on this appear in the ‘Events’ section. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lonesome_George


SUMO WRESTLER WITH A BIG BATTERY

Daniel Franklin says: “Japan’s biggest battery for storage has been produced – for excessive solar and wind power. (There’s an article on this in the ‘Asia’ section).”


PANDA IN SPEEDOS

Daniel Franklin says: “Represents Chinese Politics – ever more muscle.”


PIED PIPER

Every day my email is full of this crap.

“Well I’m mad as hell! And I’m not going to take it anymore!”


Psalm 91

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”


Top adviser to Australia PM: Global warming is a NWO fraud led by UN

A brave man in the Australian government is telling the truth about “climate change,” formerly called anthropogenic (man-made) global warming.

He is Maurice Newman, a former chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Corp., who is the chairman of Australia Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Business Advisory Council and, as such, the government’s top business adviser.

In an op/ed for The Australian newspaper, Newman asserts that:

  • “Climate change” is a myth fostered by the United Nations for political reasons — to create a new authoritarian world order under its control.
  • 95% of the climate models we’ve been told which “prove” human activities — specifically carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions — have caused and are causing Earth’s temperatures to be warmer, are in error. Instead of warming, world temps have been “in stasis,” i.e., unchanged, for the last two decades.

Instead of giving you second-hand sources to Newman’s op/ed (which is what Drudge Report inexplicably did yesterday, with a link to an AFP/Jiji article in the Japan Times), it is always better to go to the original or primary source because then there is no filtering and added commentary by the middle-man.

So here is Maurice Newman’s op/ed in its entirety. Maurice Newman

The UN is using climate change as a tool not an issue

By Maurice Newman The Australian, May 8, 2015

It’s a well-kept secret, but 95 per cent of the climate models we are told prove the link between human CO2 emissions and catastrophic global warming have been found, after nearly two decades of temperature stasis, to be in error. It’s not surprising.

We have been subjected to extravagance from climate catastrophists for close to 50 years.

In January 1970, Life magazine, based on “solid scientific evidence”, claimed that by 1985 air pollution would reduce the sunlight reaching the Earth by half. In fact, across that period sunlight fell by between 3 per cent and 5 per cent. In a 1971 speech, Paul Ehrlich said: “If I were a gambler I would take even money that ­England will not exist in the year 2000.”

Fast forward to March 2000 and David Viner, senior research scientist at the Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia, told The Independent, “Snowfalls are now a thing of the past.” In December 2010, the Mail Online reported, “Coldest December since records began as temperatures plummet to minus 10C bringing travel chaos across Britain”.

We’ve had our own busted predictions. Perhaps the most preposterous was climate alarmist Tim Flannery’s 2005 observation: “If the computer records are right, these drought conditions will become permanent in eastern Australia.” Subsequent rainfall and severe flooding have shown the records or his analysis are wrong. We’ve swallowed dud prediction after dud prediction. What’s more, the [UN] Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which we were instructed was the gold standard on global warming, has been exposed repeatedly for ­mis­rep­resentation and shoddy methods.

Weather bureaus appear to have “homogenised” data to suit narratives. NASA’s claim that 2014 was the warmest year on record was revised, after challenge, to only 38 per cent probability. Extreme weather events, once blamed on global warming, no longer are, as their frequency and intensity decline.

Christiana Figueres

Why then, with such little evidence, does the UN insist the world spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year on futile climate change policies? Perhaps Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN’s Framework on Climate Change has the answer?

In Brussels last February she said, “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years since the Industrial Revolution.”

In other words, the real agenda is concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook.

Figueres is on record saying democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model. This is not about facts or logic. It’s about a new world order under the control of the UN. It is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective.

Figueres says that, unlike the Industrial Revolution, “This is a centralised transformation that is taking place.” She sees the US partisan divide on global warming as “very detrimental”. Of course. In her authoritarian world there will be no room for debate or ­disagreement.

Make no mistake, climate change is a must-win battlefield for authoritarians and fellow travellers. As Timothy Wirth, president of the UN Foundation, says: “Even if the ­(climate change) theory is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”

Timothy Wirth Having gained so much ground, eco-catastrophists won’t let up. After all, they have captured the UN and are extremely well funded. They have a hugely powerful ally in the White House. They have successfully enlisted compliant academics and an obedient and gullible mainstream media (the ABC [Australian Broadcasting Company] and Fairfax in Australia) to push the scriptures regardless of evidence.

They will continue to present the climate change movement as an independent, spontaneous consensus of concerned scientists, politicians and citizens who believe human activity is “extremely likely” to be the dominant cause of global warming. (“Extremely likely” is a scientific term?)

And they will keep mobilising public opinion using fear and appeals to morality. UN support will be assured through promised wealth redistribution from the West, even though its anti-growth policy prescriptions will needlessly prolong poverty, hunger, sickness and illiteracy for the world’s poorest.

Figueres said at a climate ­summit in Melbourne recently that she was “truly counting on Australia’s leadership” to ensure most coal stayed in the ground.

Hopefully, like India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tony Abbott isn’t listening. India knows the importance of cheap energy and is set to overtake China as the world’s leading importer of coal. Even Germany is about to commission the most coal-fired power stations in 20 years.

There is a real chance Figueres and those who share her centralised power ambitions will succeed. As the UN’s December climate change conference in Paris approaches, Australia will be pressed to sign even more futile job-destroying climate change treaties.

Resisting will be politically difficult. But resist we should. We are already paying an unnecessary social and economic price for empty gestures. Enough is enough.

Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan offers solution to global warming

Fox News: Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has a solution for global warming: Eat bugs. 

In an interview with The Guardian, Annan called the global livestock industry “a major threat to the climate” and suggested insects as an alternative protein source to meat“Eating insects is good for the environment and balanced diets,” he said.

Bet there's no insects on those plate...

Bet there’s no insects on those plates…

Annan told The Guardian that the growing population and middle class are making it more difficult to meet meat demands.  “It represents 14.5 percent of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations,” he said.

“[Insects] make up part of the diet of 2 billion people and are commonly eaten in many parts of the world,” Annan told The Guardian.

Nor on those plates.

Nor on those plates.

He added that in addition to helping the environment, keeping meat consumption to recommended levels would “reduce heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.”

Annan served as the secretary general from 1997 to 2006.

Annan will never have to eat bugs himself:  He was born into his country’s Ashanti and Fante aristocratic families; both of his grandfathers and his uncle were part of the Akan aristocracy. The elites never have to practice what they preach.

Proverbs 6:12-19

A troublemaker and a villain,
who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
who winks maliciously with his eye,
signals with his feet
and motions with his fingers,
who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
he always stirs up conflict.

Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;
he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.

There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.


Count the details in the description in Proverbs.
It seems our president has scored 100%!

How to stay in the driver’s seat of your time usage

pal-girls-islamic-jihad-w-gunsMy typical morning for the last few years has been to get up, pour a coffee, and turn on FoxNews. Within ten minutes I will have heard a list of one alarming thing after another, sending me into a cycle of searching out the atrocity-du-jour, and blogging about it, trying to sound the alarm as widely as possible.

freakedoutThis wastes my time, often listening to lengthy stories, only to realize the speaker has the mental acuity of a poached egg.

And what is worse, it sets me off balance, and I spend my day being reactive instead of proactive.

Well, for the last month or two I have chosen a different order to my day, one that puts me back in control, back at the steering wheel instead of the back seat of my day.

I commend it to you:
