And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Book of Genesis: Chapter 1:28
A Note To Readers
“Be fruitful, and multiply,”– is not just an injunction from God to man, but it is the fundamental law of the universe. That which does not grow and develop, dies. Mankind, whom for the past 40 years or more, has been subjected to the anti-growth and depopulation paradigm, perhaps now, shall once again be on the natural pathway of growing, building, and creating a future for the generations to come. In just ten days leaders from more than 100 nations will gather in Beijing for the international Belt And Road Forum to discuss and push forward the greatest infrastructure building project in all of human history. President Trump must be there. The U.S. has an $8 trillion infrastructure deficit, at the very least, and it needs Chinese expertise and investment to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure at the highest technological level. With the President’s developing and excellent relationship to Chinese President Xi, what was impossible under our former President (whose name I am trying to forget) can now be the agenda.
The British empire idea, the very concept of Empire, of a world composed of Darwinian people and nations functioning like animals, fighting for advantage over the other, can be deposited into the historical garbage can once and for all. Mankind can then go forward to its true destiny, in building a just and prosperous world, moving mankind into space, and creating a cultural Renaissance among all peoples.
This presentation by Benjamin Deniston addresses the fundamental role of infrastructure, or as Mr. LaRouche has termed it “platforms of productivity,” required for not only today’s needs, but those of tomorrow. The presentation was given at the conference, “U.S.-China Cooperation on the Belt and Road Initiative and Corresponding Ideas in Chinese and Western Philosophy,” held in New York City on April 13-14, 2017. Deniston’s talk was titled, “Economic Platforms:” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JS20hk_En8
This week’s report
It was 88 degrees here in Oakland yesterday, breaking the record high of 81 degrees set in 2002. With this mini-heat wave, all that snow in the mountains is melting fast. So, we may have some flooding, and some of the levees, weirs and dikes along a few rivers are threatened.
Otherwise, the California climate and weather is just like it always has been: Volatile.
So, we start this week’s report with, to use one of the President’s favorite words, the HUGE snowpack and related topics.
Then following the update on Oroville Dam are a couple of related dam items.
The concluding item is from Senator Barbara Boxer and her support for building the Huntington Beach desalination plant.
