Customer Reviews
A collection and analysis of prophecy and science that reveals our hidden past, and our probable future.<br />Evidence exists around our world that points towards sudden, short-lived, catastrophic events that have drastically changed the face of the earth. From caves in England filled with the bones of rhinoceroses, bears, lions, and hippos, to ocean coral and seashells found on mountaintops in New Zealand, to great sunken cities off the coast of Japan; this evidence exists on every continent, on land and at sea. Evidence of a global cataclysm that has affected all life on Earth.<br /><br />Ancient prophetic writings from the Bible and mystics around the globe foretell of a similar vision: a great earthquake, the darkening of the sun and the moon, destructive tidal waves that cripple coastlines.<br />A vision recorded by men and women from different times, in different places, some with no knowledge of one another; yet these prophecies bear a striking similarity. Could they have all been seeing the same event? <br /><br />Is it possible that one event could cause the untold devastation spoken of in these prophecies?<br /><br />Learn why men such as Immanuel Velikovsky, Charles Hapgood, and even Albert Einstein believed that the earth has undergone past geographic pole shifts.<br />Discover how scientists from NASA, Caltech, Boston University, and more, are making statements today that seemingly support such a belief.<br /><br />AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH delves deep into prophecies from Scripture, analyzing passages from Old Testament prophets, the Book of Revelation, and the words of Jesus to piece together the message they tell us about our future, the future of the planet, and the future of all mankind. <br />AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH also explores geology, astronomy, astrophysics, and other scientific fields, explaining exactly what a geographic pole shift is, why evidence worldwide suggests Earth has undergone one in the past, and how a future pole shift could be caused by any number of natural events.<br /><br />A unique blend of science and prophecy that will open your eyes to the coming global disaster that has been foretold for thousands of years, give you insight into the possible future to follow, and prepare you for the sudden and total disruption of life as we know it.<br /><br />Just as in the days of Noah, when the rains swept almost all peoples away unawares, so will the coming pole shift come upon us, suddenly and without warning, except to those who have been forewarned.<br /><br /><br /><br />

Everybody seems to know that Nibiru is a hoax. We do not see that planet. Not even with the best possible equipment. So it cannot exist.<br />But in the past, the planet is seen and depicted as we can see on the cover of this book! <br />99,999% of the Nibiru denials have never seriously spent a minute of their time to investigate this phenomenon. Others have been researching up to 50 years to find evidence. I have spent only eight years on research and this is my story:<br />Nibiru will return and we know when!.<br />What do we really know about our past? When and why did ancient civilizations disappear? Who built the pyramids? Will Noah’s flood ever return? This book answers these questions and many more. <br />All over the world we find evidence for the existence of a lost but highly developed civilization. However, archaeologists deny these facts. Legends tell us about natural disasters caused by a planet or a dragon that flew close by the earth. Astronomers deny the existence of such a planet. <br />But that planet exists. It is seen. There are images of that planet. Worldwide we find the same symbol. Legends, myths and the Bible tell us about the recurring disasters caused by the planet Nibiru. The fear of this terrible natural disaster is the root for most of the world religions.<br />New evidence, that supports this theory, is found in America and all over the world. Many of them are never seen before.<br />When will Nibiru return? In this book you find the unique Nibiru Cycle Chart that shows when Nibiru crossed our solar system and when it will return! This is the pattern of our past and future. Now we can understand when a Previous Civilization existed that left important information for us. We need to know the whole truth about our history, although it is unpleasant. <br />This book contains many illustrations and links to relevant websites.<br />This is a solid investigation. The truth about our past has never been so clear.<br />

<P><EM>The Routledge Handbook of Disaster Risk Reduction Including Climate Change Adaptation</EM> aims to provide an overview and critique of the current state of knowledge, policy, and practice, encouraging engagement, and reflection on bringing the two sectors together. This long-awaited and welcomed volume makes a compelling case that a common research agenda and a series of practical policies and policy recommendations can and should be put in place.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Over 40 contributions explore DRR including CCA in five parts. The first part presents and interrogates much of the typical vocabulary seen in DRR including CCA, not only pointing out the useful and not-so-useful dimensions, but also providing alternatives and positive examples. The second part explains how to move forward creating and supporting positive crossovers and connections, while the third one explores some aspects of multi-dimensional approaches to knowing and understanding. The fourth part argues for a balanced approach to governance, taking both governmental and non-governmental governance, as well as different scales of governance, into consideration. The final part of the <EM>Handbook</EM> emphasises DRR including CCA as an investment, rather than a cost, and connects its further implementation with livelihoods of people around the world.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>This handbook highlights the connections amongst the processes of dealing with disasters and dealing with climate change. It demonstrates how little climate change brings which is new and emphasises the strengths of placing climate change within wider contexts in order to draw on all our strengths while overcoming limitations with specialities. It will prove to be a valuable guide for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, academics, policy makers, and practitioners with an interest in disaster risk reduction and climate change.</P><br /><P> </P>

<p>This book presents a review of the state-of-the-art knowledge on the interactions between biodiversity and wind energy development, focused on the Portuguese reality. The volume addresses the particularities of the impact assessment procedures in Portugal, contrasting it with the international practices and presenting its main findings by covering the following broader themes: i) evaluation of spatial and temporal dynamics of wildlife affected by wind farms, including birds, bats and terrestrial mammals (in particularly Portuguese wolf population); ii) the methodologies used to assess impacts caused by this type of developments in biodiversity; iii) the best practice methodologies to implement an adaptive management approach to reconcile biodiversity and wind farms.<br /> <br /> The knowledge presented in this book was gathered through the research and development activities developed by Bioinsight company (former Bio3 company) during the last 13 years and partially funded by a R&D project designated as “Integrated solutions for biodiversity management at wind farms: reduce and compensate bird and bat mortality” (acronym: Wind & Biodiversity), co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER), under the Regional Operational Programme of Centre (Mais Centro).<br /> <br /> This volume fills a void in the literature as a book giving insights on the best practices to install and manage a wind farm from a biodiversity management point of view, while establishing a commitment between economic sustainability and biodiversity conservation.<br /> <br /> </p>

<P>Updated in its seventh edition, <EM>The Environmental Policy Paradox</EM> provides an introduction to the policy-making process in the United States with regard to air, water, land use, agriculture, energy, and waste disposal, while introducing readers to both global and international environmental issues and institutions. The text explains why some environmental ideas shape policy while others do not, and illustrates that even when the best short- and long-term solutions to environmental problems are identified, the task of implementing these solutions is often left undone or is completed too late. Readers are presented with a comprehensive history of the environmental movement paired with the most up-to-date account of environmental policy available today. </P><br /><P></P><B><br /><P>New to the Seventh Edition</P></B><br /><P></P><br /><UL><br /><P><br /><LI>Covers new topics including fracking, Arctic drilling, the Keystone XL pipeline controversy, GMOs, food security, and the green economy.</LI><br /><P></P></UL><br /><P></P><br /><UL><br /><P><br /><LI>Provides expanded information about the subsidy process.</LI><br /><P></P></UL><br /><P></P><br /><UL><br /><P><br /><LI>Extends the treatment of land preservation with a discussion of the Land and Water Conservation Fund.</LI><br /><P></P></UL><br /><P></P><br /><UL><br /><P><br /><LI>Adds Discussion Questions to the end of each chapter.</LI></UL>
