Residential Natural Gas Prices (CA)

Natural Gas Price Update

Natural gas prices have risen dramatically across the nation over the past few years for a variety of reasons – mostly, natural gas production in North American has decreased while demand has increased. Strong economic growth and higher crude oil prices also affect natural gas prices. Economic growth and higher crude oil prices also affect natural gas prices.

As of October 6, 2005, and based on industry forecasts, customers can expect winter bills around 45% to 55% higher this winter. For example, a typical single-family residential monthly bill could be around $115-$122 this winter, versus $79 last winter. A typical residential bill for someone living in an apartment could be around $50 versus $33 last winter.

October Rate Update

Effective October 1, 2005, the procurement component of the core sales rate will increase 18.607¢/therm: from 83.988¢/therm to 102.595¢/therm. This increase resulted primarily from a 15.5¢/therm increase in commodity prices or about a 18.3% increase in commodity prices. Compared to a year ago, the procurement rate is about 108.1% higher (53.287¢/therm) than what it was effective October 2004.

Combined with the transmission rate, core residential and C&I sales customers will see about a 17% rate increase from last month.

Higher natural gas bills will start hitting California in October

AP Business Writer
Friday, September 30, 2005

In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, this material is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes.

California 's natural gas bills during October will increase by more than 70 percent in some parts of the state as the fallout from hurricanes Katrina and Rita continues to fuel higher energy prices.

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. on Friday projected Northern California households will pay an average of $42.10 for natural gas during the first full month of autumn — an increase of $17.45, or 71 percent, from the same time last year. The billing estimate doesn't include charges for electricity usage.

The news was only slightly better in the greater Los Angeles area, where October's average home bill for natural gas is expected to rise 49 percent from last year to $42.23, according to the Southern California Gas Co. San Diego Gas and Electric didn't have estimates available for October, but the utility expects household customers to pay 45 percent more for natural gas during the winter, spokeswoman Denise King said.

Combined, the three California utilities provide natural gas for about 9.6 million customers.

The price shock stems from the devastation inflicted upon the Gulf Coast by Katrina and Rita during September. The twin blows knocked out 80 percent of the daily production in a region that plays a vital role in the nation's natural gas supplies. The Gulf Coast accounts for about one-fourth of the nation's natural gas supply.

With natural gas in shorter supply, its price has soared even further from levels that already were higher than last year. Natural gas futures have climbed by about 18 percent since Katrina hit one month ago, and are about 74 percent higher than they were two months ago.

The California utilities are now passing along some of those higher costs to their customers, as allowed under state regulations. The increases would have been even higher, the utilities said, if they had not been able to stock up on natural gas during the spring and summer months when prices were lower.

The hurricanes also curtailed oil production, driving gasoline prices above $3 per gallon during much of September.

Given that most of California typically remains fairly warm through most of October, the spike in natural gas prices won't hurt as much as it would have had it occurred during winter when heaters are running more frequently.

"We are hoping this is real wake-up call so people can start getting ready for the colder weather," said PG&E spokesman Jason Alderman.

Although natural gas is going to cost substantially more this winter, PG&E expects the percentage increase to retreat slightly after October.

The San Francisco-based utility estimates the average Northern California home will pay about 40 to 50 percent more for natural gas in January, increasing their monthly bill by about $50. The utility also is seeking approval to increase household electricity bills by 11 percent beginning next year.

Southern California Gas doesn't envision much relief for its customers, estimating January's natural gas prices will be 51 percent higher than a year ago, a revision from a projected 33 percent increase that was made two weeks ago.

Fearing Heat Costs, Many Take Preventive Action

By Pam Belluck And Sarah Kershaw
New York Times
October 11, 2005

In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, this material is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes.

BOSTON , Oct. 10 - The price of energy has soared so high that Carol Paige has all but given up dancing.

It was a favorite hobby, twice a week at clubs in Worcester, Mass., almost a 50-mile drive from her home. For Ms. Paige, the drive is now a luxury. She is worried about a more basic need: heating her home. In the face of the surging cost of natural gas and home heating oil, Ms. Paige, a 60-year-old social worker who lives alone, has made other cutbacks, too.

She cut out the monitoring system for her burglar alarm, cancelled her garbage pickup and takes her trash to the dump herself, and plans to discontinue her Internet service.

And last week, fearful of a heating oil bill that could soar to $1,500 this winter from about $1,000 last year, Ms. Paige had a wood stove insert installed in her living-room fireplace at her home in Ashburnham, about 50 miles northwest of Boston. She plans to cut wood for the stove herself from trees on her property and from leftovers at nearby logging sites.

"I have a little electric chain saw," Ms. Paige said. "I'm just trying to keep this house going."

Sentiments like that are being echoed from Maine to Alaska as people, already grappling to keep up with the rising price of gasoline, have been further stunned by predictions of the skyrocketing cost of staying warm this winter.

People who heat their homes with natural gas will pay an average of 46 percent more this winter, with costs in some regions, like the Midwest, expected to be as high as 71 percent more, according to forecasts issued last month by the Department of Energy. Heating oil costs are expected to go up an average of 31 percent. And those figures were released before Hurricane Katrina made the situation worse.

Now, people across the country, as well as state and local governments and school districts, are scrambling to respond. Some are turning away from gas and oil, buying wood stoves, wood-pellet stoves, even corn-burning stoves. Others are replacing windows, buying carpets, adding insulation. Some are rushing to invest in alternative energies like solar, geothermal or biodiesel. And many are tightening their budgets.

"We're going to rob Peter to pay Paul," said Steven Posey, 37, an executive recruiter from Glenwood, Ill. Mr. Posey's family usually goes to Disney World or some other southern vacation spot in January, but not this winter. He and his wife, who have a 7-year-old son and a newborn girl, also said they would not give each other Christmas gifts and would cut nonessentials like their cable television package and video rental membership.

"When it comes down to it," Mr. Posey said, "we'll pay our heat, but something else is going to go unpaid."

That is not to say that everyone is in a fuel frenzy. Energy Department officials say fuel prices shot up because of Hurricane Katrina but will eventually come down. Some people, though, are changing energy sources because the sluggish response to the hurricane has raised questions about whether they can rely on things like oil and gas in an emergency.

Even though crude oil prices dropped slightly last week, officials in Washington are concerned. The energy secretary, Samuel W. Bodman, started a national conservation tour last week at a suburban Boston home-improvement store, demonstrating with Gov. Mitt Romney ways to conserve energy.

Guy Lamoureaux is doing a little bit of everything to save money. He bought a pellet stove for his home, an old farmhouse in Westminster, Mass. Mr. Lamoureaux, 27, said he had also installed new windows and insulation because "all my house had for insulation was newspapers from 1912." And for his 30-mile drive to his job at a grocery store, he swapped his gas-guzzling pickup truck for a used Ford Escort.

A poll conducted in late September for the National Oilheat Research Alliance, a consortium of oil companies, found that 28 percent of respondents planned to take steps this winter to better conserve energy, like installing new insulation, thermostats and furnaces or turning to stoves. Nearly a third said energy costs would cause them to cut back on holiday gifts and dining out.

Low- and middle-income families are not the only ones feeling the squeeze. In Wayland, a well-off suburb of Boston, Energy Unlimited has been seeing a deluge of customers wanting wood or pellet stoves, said Dave Paillier, who works in sales and marketing.

"I would call it borderline panic," Mr. Paillier said. "A lot of people here have very large houses, and big sometimes equals cathedral ceilings or other things that are very hungry in terms of energy. I think a lot of people who look affluent might have bought the biggest house they could afford, and the sticker shock with the gas bills or oil bills can be more than they counted on."

That is what happened to Erik Stauber, a professor of veterinary medicine. Two years ago, he built a 4,000-square-foot dream house in Genesee, Idaho, with a vaulted ceiling, an atrium and 11 skylights. During the first winter there, Mr. Stauber, 69, said he and his wife were "shellshocked" that it cost $2,500 to heat their home with propane, so last year they switched to a wood-burning stove.

Their costs dropped to $1,000, but only one area of the house got warm enough to sleep in, and the labor of hauling and splitting the wood compelled them to switch two weeks ago to an electric-powered geothermal system, which draws heat from well water.

State officials, however, worry the most about low-income consumers, like Mary White, a single mother of three in the Dorchester section of Boston who is on disability because of a brain tumor. Ms. White, 47, a former utility company employee, received fuel assistance last year but still owes the gas company about $1,800.

Ms. White said she feared that her heat would get shut off because she would not be able to pay the bill, let alone keep up with rising fuel costs. To save gas, she tries not to cook, feeding her children mostly food like peanut butter sandwiches.

"I'm really scared," Ms. White said. "I pray for another day of warm weather."

John Wells, who runs the fuel assistance program at Action for Boston Community Development, said the maximum benefit of $609 would not even fill an oil tank and, in a state where winter runs through April, would not last most customers past early February. His agency will install free solar-powered systems in some homes.

John Drew, the agency's vice president, said, "This is the most dangerous winter I've seen, and I was here during OPEC," referring to the oil embargo of the 1970's.

Governors of 28 states have asked for nearly $1.3 billion in additional money for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. Eight Midwestern states have started an energy conservation campaign. Some Massachusetts officials have called for making bulk purchases of heating oil or removing sales tax on insulation and energy-efficient furnaces.

Some schools are turning down thermostats, limiting bus service or hiring energy consultants. In Council, Idaho, the schools expect to halve their $10,000 monthly heating bill with a new system that runs on wood chips produced when state crews thin trees along the highways. Last month, Gov. Sonny Perdue of Georgia closed the schools for two days because school buses were running out of diesel fuel.

In Marengo, Iowa, the county courthouse remains closed on Mondays to give its gas boilers an extra day off, and employees work four 10-hour days. In Marshalltown, Iowa, officials have traded traffic lights for stop signs at six intersections.

Some people are considering more drastic environmental changes like solar panels, wind turbines or straw insulation. The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association has had higher-than-usual attendance on tours of "green" homes from Delaware to Maine, said Anissa Sanborn, a program manager for the group.

Jack May of Canaan, Maine, recently bought a pellet stove and is considering solar power. "I'm not an environmentalist from the word go," Mr. May said. "I want to look at my bottom line."

"It was either give it to the oil company, $4,000 a year, or buy a wood stove and have something to show for it after two years," he said.

Some suppliers of the stoves and the pellets and wood they burn are running out of inventory or hiring extra employees to meet the demand. In Walla Walla, Wash., Chris Neufeld, vice president of Blaze King Industries-USA, said his company had a backlog worth $1 million for stoves that cost about $2,000 apiece.

In Waverly, Ill., Don Magelitz, who sells corn stoves, is more than eight weeks behind on deliveries and has a backlog of 200 orders.

Consumer groups and some retailers warn that stoves are not for everyone, because they require money up front and take effort to use. But Ellen Berman, president of the Consumer Energy Council of America, said that when these or other conservation steps were chosen appropriately, people might find that "if they spend $50 today, they'll reap hundreds or thousands in the future."

That is what Mauricio Luzzi of Bayshore, N.Y., is counting on. Mr. Luzzi found a wood stove for $300 on Craigslist last week, and he plans to burn wood scraps from his handyman business and search for downed trees along the roads he travels to construction sites.

"Give me the wood, I'll chop it up, I'll haul it off," Mr. Luzzi said. "We all know it's hurting everything. You raise the price of fuel, and everything goes up."

I got very emotional voting yesterday in the New Zealand general election. As I biked over to the local Intermediate School – I'm back on my bike having been knocked off in August by a truck and getting a shattered elbow – my dog running alongside me, the sunny bright Saturday was filled with people going about there business which largely included casting their ballot... over 80% turnout.

But what really got to me was taking my paper ballot to the little cardboard 'privacy enclosure' and using a marker to put a tick [check] in the boxes which indicated my choices... KNOWING my vote would be counted MANUALLY... that scrutineers from all the parties would be on hand to oversee the process, and that within hours of the polls closing, a result would be indicated.

It ran through my mind how voting has become such a despicable charade in USA and in places where proportional representation remains elusive or excluded, UK, Australia, USA... funny... that same group of the willing killers and despoilers of Iraq.

Anyway, despite a huge campaign appealing to greed and racism, the neo-liberal opposition looks like it fell just short of forming a coalition. Now we can see what the Germans are deciding today.

What never got mentioned during the election campaign is the rapidly deteriorating balance of payments as the oil import bill blows out. Tourism [NZ’s number one earner of export dollars] will wither and die on the back of much more expensive air travel and the cost of getting NZ's exports to markets [dairy products is number two] will rise rapidly. Any result will have delivered a government having to deal with lots of shit hitting lots of fans... and all within the life of the next three years of government.

First case of bird flu confirmed in Greece News Staff
Mon. Oct. 17 2005 11:33 PM ET

In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, this material is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes.

News that a strain of bird flu has taken flight again is causing growing alarm in Europe. Urgent containment efforts are underway after authorities in Greece confirmed that country's first case of the virus.

Greece 's agriculture minister said the H5 virus was detected in one of nine turkeys tested on a farm on the Aegean island of Oinouses, off Chios.

The agriculture ministry said the virus came from a small private poultry farm of about 20 turkeys.

"It is a village of five to six hundred residents, with very few domestic animals," Agriculture Minister Evangelos Bassiakos said Monday. "The site where the sample was found was in an isolated area … and the sample was found in a live bird."

Tests are being conducted for the possible presence of the deadly H5N1 strain -- the virus that health experts fear could mutate into a human form and cause a flu pandemic.

"Since we had three pandemics in the last century, it's highly likely in the next century, we'll have a number of other pandemics," British Medical Research Council's John Skehel said Monday.

The reports come after tests confirmed the presence of H5N1 in Romania and Turkey; however no human cases have been reported in either country.

Romanian officials say the outbreak is under control, but further tests today revealed twelve swans had tested positive for bird flu in the Danube Delta. It is not yet known whether the strain is the deadly H5N1.

World Health Organization officials say there is little risk to the public right now.

"There's no way to predict if this is going to mutate or when it's going to mutate, but for the moment it remains something that's of low risk to the public -- except for those people in contact with diseased birds," said Maria Cheng of the World Health Organization, appearing on CTV's Canada AM.

Health officials believe those who come into close contact with bird droppings or who are engaged in the preparation of birds for food could be exposed to the H5N1 virus.

However, Cheng notes: "We haven't seen any indication that the strain has mutated or evolved to become more adept at human transmission so that is reassuring."

Although not a single European has died, many are rushing to the doctor to get a flu shot, despite warnings it is useless against the avian virus.

"We are seeing people who are genuinely scared that this is the year that there'll be a flu pandemic," Dr. Malcolm Vandenberg told CTV News on Monday.

WHO is urging all countries to develop a pandemic preparedness plan before it is too late.

If the bird flu does become a human killer, millions around the world could die. A British team is traveling to South East Asia to study the virus' original epicenter.

Canada 's Preparedness

Federal Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh told CTV's Question Period that there is a strong possibility bird flu would reach Canada if it were to spread among humans.

"I think that it would be next to impossible to prevent this from spreading (to Canada) if it does mutate -- if it does become easily transmissible from human to human, or birds to humans," the minister said in a show that aired Sunday.

He added that Canada is well prepared for such a pandemic, relative to other nations, and that America is seeking Canada's advice for its own outbreak preparations.

"The (WHO) has said we are by far the best prepared country in the world," Dosanjh said.

"But that doesn't mean we're fully prepared. Nobody ever is fully prepared. That's why we continue to work hard in terms of working with the hospitals, and working with the chief public health officers of the provinces."

H5N1 has killed more than 60 people in Asia since 2003, along with millions of birds.

While science is working to prepare a vaccine, it could take six months to develop after a mutated virus first appears.

[The key thing to understand here is that in order to make vaccines to protect against H5N1 (if that is the intent) scientists must achieve something that hasn’t happened yet. They must make the disease easily transmissible between humans, the one thing they are ostensibly most afraid of.

The Avian Flu Fright is Politically Timed

A Public Health Warning and Political Essay

By Dr. Leonard Horowitz
October 12, 2005

In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, this material is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes.


The Avian Flu Fright: Politically Timed for Global “Iatrogenocide”

If avian flu becomes more than a threatened pandemic, it will have done so by political and economic design. This thesis is supported by current massive media misrepresentations, profiteering on risky and valueless vaccines, gross neglect of data evidencing earlier similar man-made plagues including SARS, West Nile Virus, AIDS and more; continuance of genetic studies breeding more mutant flu viruses likely to outbreak, inside trading scandals involving pandemic savvy White House and drug industry officials, curious immunity of these pharmaceutical entities over the past century to law enforcement and mainstream media scrutiny, and published official depopulation objectives. With the revelations and assertions advanced herein, the public is forewarned against this physician-assisted mass murder best termed “iatrogenocide.”* This genocidal imposition is expected to serve mainly economic and political depopulation objectives.


In April, 2003, a social experiment called SARS, said to have arrived from Asia, heavily struck Toronto. I was there throughout most of this Asian flu-foreshadowing fright. This bizarre new pneumonia-like illness was named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. It was said to be the latest threat in an ongoing series of attacks on humanity by mysteriously mutating "supergerms."

A careful study of the scientific and medical-sociological correlates and antecedents of this “outbreak” revealed something amiss far more insidious than SARS. I critically considered Toronto’s media reaction as any Harvard-trained public health expert in media persuasion behavioral science might. The scourge had all the earmarks of a novel social experiment conducted by white-collar bioterrorist.

It seemed clear to me that this unprecedented population manipulation effectively indoctrinated the mass mind in support of a grossly ineffective, albeit legislated, public health response in advance of the arrival of "the Big One." Throughout the “SARS Scam,”(1) repeated references were made to biological agents that might facilitate decimation of approximately a third to half of the world's population. Having extensively reviewed political population control literature and contemporary objectives of leading global industrialists, I noted these predictions were in close keeping with current official population reduction objectives.(2)

Canada ’s response to SARS in 2003 was, for the first time in history, directed by the United Nations and World Health Organization (WHO). Having reviewed the intimate financial and administrative ties between these organizations, the Rockefeller family, Carnegie Foundation, and the world’s leading drug makers, “the fox,” in essence, reigned over Canada’s “chickens.”

The truth about plagues includes the fact that “no grand pandemic ever evolved divorced from major socio-political upheaval." SARS advanced a political agenda more than a public health emergency. If public health officials earnestly intended to prevent these new emerging diseases, or successfully treat them at their roots, I repeated, they would study their obvious origins from the merged military-medical-biotechnology arena. A basic course in medical sociology simply justifies this utilitarian counsel.

"Experts" had been predicting the arrival of a super-plague for decades. What was HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS about the mysterious and terrifying arrival of SARS, however, was its timing. It synchronously arrived with the global war on terrorism, and the Anglo-American war with Iraq. It seemed a convenient distraction from the fact that the earlier Bush administration had shipped Saddam Hussein most of his deadly biological weapons arsenal including anthrax and West Nile Virus. SARS was pathognomonic (i.e., symptomatic and characteristic) of what I had predicted and explained in the book, Death in the Air: Globalism, Terrorism and Toxic Warfare (Tetrahedron Publishing Group, 2001;, a prophetically-titled text that predated the 9-11 attacks on America by several months, and provided a contextual analysis of certain globalists’ links to recent “outbreaks.”

In essence, I provided insight into the broad application of a new form of institutionalized "bioterrorism" consistent with state sponsored biological warfare. Saddam Hussein was said to have exposed populations in his and adjacent lands with biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction. SARS and the current avian flu fright is sanctioned by military-medical-pharmaceutical-petrochemical industrialists likewise operating above the law in many documented instances. Having testified before the U.S. Congress, I personally experienced how premiere pharmaceutical industrialists direct our political-economic representatives in government. Emerging diseases complement the political "War on Terrorism," and our bioterror-influenced culture. This agenda serves two primary objectives: profitability and population-reduction.

Political Reality Versus Mass-Mediated Myths

The ever increasing madness around us is eerily consistent with globalist think tank recommendations for the current "conflicts short of war." Beginning in the late 1960s, "economic substitutes for standard militarization" were sought and found by leading global industrialists. New biological threats, the “war on terrorism,” and increasing numbers of “natural disasters” including space-based threats and superstorms were considered economically and politically expedient compared with the first and second world wars. These “conflicts short of war” were decidedly more manageable and economically viable. For this reason, especially their profitability, they were leading options among Anglo-American policy makers.

Nelson Rockefeller’s protégé, Henry Kissinger, for instance, as National Security Advisor (NSA) under Richard Nixon, oversaw foreign policy while considering Third World population reduction "necessities" for the U.S., Britain, Germany, and other allies. This Bush nominee to direct the 9-11 conspiracy investigation, a reputed war criminal, then selected the option to have the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) develop biological weapons, according to the U.S. Congressional Record of 1975. Among these new man-made biological weapons were germs far deadlier than the avian flu.

For example, by 1968, when Kissinger requested and received updated intelligence on useful “synthetic biological agents“ for germ warfare and population control, mutant recombinant flu viruses had just been engineered by Special Virus Cancer Program researchers O’Conner, Stewart, Kinard, Rauscher and others.(3) During this program, influenza and parainfluenza viruses were recombined with quick acting leukemia viruses (acute lymphocytic leukemia) to deliver weapons that potentially spread cancer, like the flu, by sneezing. These researchers also amassed avian cancer (sarcoma) viruses and inoculated them into humans and monkeys to determine their carcinogenicity. In related efforts, Raucher et al. used radiation to enhance avian virus’s cancer-causing potential. These incredible scientific realities have been officially censored and generally neglected by the media’s mainstream.

Similarly, the Institute of Science in Society (IoSS) in London raised the genetic engineering question in the origin of SARS. “Could genetic engineering have contributed inadvertently to creating the SARS virus?” they asked. “This point was not even considered by the expert coronavirologists called in to help handle the crisis, now being feted and woed by pharmaceutical companies eager to develop vaccines.” Those living in glass houses should not throw stones. The above emphasis is added to show IoSS they had “not even considered” intentional SARS deployment in their scientific, allegedly unbiased, purview.(4)

Conflicts short of war, like the "War on AIDS," "War on Drugs," "War on Terrorism," "War on Cancer," and now “War on the Avian Flu” require sophisticated propaganda programs employing fear campaigns for social acceptance and popular support of legislated policies. These psychological operations (officially termed PSYOPS) for “command and control warfare” (technically called C2W), experts advise, best support the emerging "Revolution in Military Affairs" (RMA). The RMA‘s capabilities include "a form of human slavery" in which the world’s captive populations would not know they are enslaved.(2)

The RMA undoubtedly incorporates the use of debilitating biologicals and chemical agents most generously on behalf of drug and vaccine makers. A classic example is the toxic carcinogenic organophosphate pesticides deployed against human populations, said to target “mosquitoes,” in the "War Against the West Nile Virus." Such "non-lethal warfare" agents, as these are militarily termed, are indeed deadly, but mortality results slowly from toxic exposures allowing more profits to be made by allied pharmaceutical and medical industrialists. Victims of the "non-lethal" exposures die slowly from chronic debilitating diseases. Expensive hospitals and long-term care facilities are virtual concentration camps. The ailments generated for “iatrogenocide” include the plethora of autoimmune diseases and newer cancers virtually non-existent 50 years ago. This fact, alone, strongly suggests a genocidal socio-economic and political agenda.

Avian Flu for Profit

In response to SARS, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, Michael Fumento, published an economic thesis in Toronto related to the one I advance here. The "Super-bug or Super Scare," he wrote was published in Canada’s National Post. Canadians were warned to "quarantine themselves," wear masks, and in some cases stay home. The Ontario Health Minister declared a "health emergency," as the media dubbed the "mysterious killer" a "super-pneumonia.” Recoiling from the hype, Fumento asked and answered a few “real questions . . . How lethal, how transmissible, and how treatable is this strain?” The answers, he concluded, “leave no grounds for excitement, much less panic.” The same may be said for this new curse of avian flu.(1)


At this writing, the avian flu is said to have killed “about 65 people” in Southeast Asia during the past two years! Little to no data is available on these individuals who most commonly had immune-compromising medical conditions. Further, all deaths were in Asian countries with questionable health services.

Conversely, other forms of flu kill more than 40,000 North Americans annually, generally the immune-compromised elderly.


According to USA Today (October 9, 2005), “European health officials are working to contain the [avian flu] virus, which so far has not infected anyone in the region.” Although, allegedly “more than 140 million birds have died or been destroyed, . . . and financial losses to the poultry sector have topped $10 billion.” This propaganda actually admits, “the current virus, known as H5N1, has not yet mutated to the point at which it can easily spread from person to person.” In fact, it is likely to have never spread from person to person other than during laboratory handling!(5)


“The U.S. Senate has already approved a $3.9 billion package to buy vaccines and antiviral medications, and the Administration is also preparing a request for an additional $6 billion to $10 billion,” according to a current BusinessWeek report.( 6)

“Beam me up Scottie, there is no intelligent life on this planet.” This largely explains why the public puts up with this deadly deception. Even USA Today bemoans, “there is no human vaccine yet.” So how come the U.S. Senate is rushing to spend all these billions for an avian flu vaccine?

I suppose we should overlook the fact that the current frightening strain of H5N1 avian flu virus has never readily jumped from human to human, and not commonly from birds to humans either. Thus, an effective vaccine can only be prepared by mutating this virus, thus creating what the world fears most. Let me explain. . . .

To make the human vaccine specific for the H5N1 mutant virus, you must start with the human virus which does not yet exist, except in perhaps military-biomedical-pharmaceutical laboratories. In fact, this is precisely what is being prepared based on news reports. To produce the human pathogen, the avian virus must be cultured for lengthy periods of time in human cell cultures, then injected into monkey and ultimately humans to see if these experimental subjects get the same feared flu. Thus, the flu virus the world currently fears most is either: 1) now being prepared in labs paid by industrialists with massive wealth-building incentives to “accidentally” release the virus; or 2) has already been prepared in such labs to take advantage of this current fright and future sales following the virus’s release.

Remember, to be effective against a virus, a vaccine is said to require specificity. If authorities were to now have the main H5N1 avian flu strain feared to spread at some future date there’s no assurance by the time they developed the vaccine the strain would remain sufficiently the same for the vaccine to be effective anyway due to expected viral mutations. Viral mutations over time is a function of the agent’s newness. New man-made viruses, laboratory creations, like the ones currently being prepared for vaccine trials, are less stable not having evolved over the millennia. Thus, the entire vaccine effort is largely, if not entirely, a sham with ulterior motives.

Remember too, that a vaccine’s reliability requires years, or at least months, of testing in the targeted population. Vaccine injury data must, or should, be meticulously collected over this period to assure the vaccine is not killing and maiming more persons than it is helping or saving. Can you seriously believe this assurance will be provided by government or pharmaceutical industry officials in this pandemic’s wake? FEMA’s failed Katrina response pails by comparison to this public health liability and vaccine-injury certainty.

I say “vaccine-injury certainty” because of the extensive list of newly developed vaccinations, highly touted when brought to market, that caused horrific results. This list includes the first swine flu vaccine, polio vaccines, smallpox vaccine, anthrax vaccine, hepatitis B vaccine, and most recently Lyme disease vaccine that crippled approximately 750,000 people within months of its release and prior to its recall by the FDA.

Most people fail to realize all vaccines carry a list of ingredients that typically increase human disease and death (i.e., morbidity and mortality). These include toxic elements and chemicals such as mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and formalin (used to preserve corpses), MSG, foreign genetic material, and risky proteins from various species of bacteria, viruses, and animals that have been scientifically associated with triggering autoimmune disorders and certain cancers. A growing body of scientific evidence strongly suggests vaccines are largely responsible for increasing cases of autism and other learning disabilities, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Lupus, MS, ALS, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, hay fever, allergies, chronic draining ear infections, type 1 autoimmune diabetes, and many, many more pandemics. These chronic ailments are said to require long-term medical care for the patients’ management causing toxic side effects resulting in America’s leading killer--iatrogenic disease. That is, vaccines and other pharmaceutical industry inventions are literally killing or disabling millions with little effort on the part of government officials and their drug industry cohorts to arrest this scourge.

For all we know, governments are ordering an avian flu vaccine that will precisely deliver this pandemic to the world to affect population control. Absurd thesis? Read on.

BusinessWeek expects avian flu vaccine stockpiling by government officials will help the Sanofi-Pasteur company on behalf of Sanofi-Aventis and Chiron. “Tamiflu,” it reported is an antiviral manufactured by Roche, . . . considered effective against avian flu. . . . The U.S. owns enough for 4.3 million people, with more on order.” BusinessWeek failed to report: 1) Tamiflu’s safety and effectiveness has not been determined in people with other chronic medical conditions--a significant percentage of the U.S. population-- and common side effects of this drug include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bronchitis, stomach pain, dizziness, headaches, and much, much more; 2) Roche (Hoffman-LaRoche) was found guilty of price fixing the world’s supply of vitamins in 1999 as part of the global petrochemical/pharmaceutical cartel evolved from Nazi-Germany‘s I.G. Farben organization;(2)(6) and 3) Sanofi-Aventis’s corporate colleagues include Merck, a company that received a lion’s share of the Nazi war chest at the end of WWII, whose earnings plunged after the withdrawal last year of its deadly Vioxx arthritis drug. According to recent news reports, Merck is partnering with Sanofi-Aventis to produce the world’s first sexually-transmitted-cancer vaccine to be given to prepubescent boys and girls.(7) Merck is infamous for having developed the first hepatitis B vaccines that triggered the international AIDS pandemic according to published scientific research and stunning documents reprinted in this author’s national bestselling book.(3)(8)

In the weeks and months following the 9-11 attacks on America, I traced the widely publicized anthrax mailings "mystery" to U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) commissioned biological weapons contractors with ties to Britain's MI6, Porton Down, and this same Anglo-American pharmaceutical cartel.(9) The anthrax mailings fanned fears of bioterrorism throughout America and economically served primarily vaccine and drug makers with administrative and financial links to these avian flu profiteers.(10)

People willingly relinquish their civil rights and personal freedoms in the wake of such engineered frights. The passage of the infamous "Homeland Security Act" in America, and its counterpart in Canada, are classic examples of this societal direction, forced legislation, and egregious manipulation.

Why Asia?

How convenient that Asia is said to be the origin, as with SARS, of this latest plague when Chinese-Anglo-American relations are strained to say the least.

In the days preceding the emergence of the first SARS cases, America raced to the Pacific Rim to impact escalating aggressions on the Korean peninsula. Communist China--a "most favored" trading partner with America--is politically allied with several American enemies, including those said to possess weapons of mass destruction, including Iraq. Coincidental? Not likely when viewing the larger political picture involving the Ango-American oligarchy's RMA, its global enterprises, and instigated planet-wide "conflicts short of war."

Consider also the fact the media's mainstream has been heavily influenced, if not entirely controlled, by multi-national corporate sponsors protecting and advancing the interests of a relatively small number of global entities. Also recall that the focus of news providers, on any given day or hour, results from intelligence agency directives, according to reputable authorities including myriad retired news officials and intelligence officers. So ask and answer the following intelligent questions:

* Why have American military officials, beginning with Secretary of Defense William Cohen during the Clinton years, publicized America's greatest vulnerability lies in the realm of biological weapons wielded by terrorists? Is this not a form of treason against the United States to relay such sensitive intelligence to potential enemies through the mainstream press?

* Why does the mainstream media continue to foretell of the expected arrival of the "Big One"-an influenza virus that will produce a super-flu that will kill billions of people, like the "Spanish flu" did between 1918-19, while totally disregarding the individuals, organizations, and laboratories that have labored to produce these weapons of mass destruction? Even the devastating Spanish Flu virus has been, literally, unearthed for further study and, do you suppose, deployment?

* Why was the "Spanish flu" influenza virus called the "Spanish flu" when it originated, by historic accounts, in Tibet in 1917? It is said that Spanish newspapers were the only ones reporting on the great plague due to their neutrality over World War I politics. However, Spain was as dear to America then as Communist China is to the United States today. The "Spanish flu" was named such following two decades of disputes between America and Spain over colonization of the Caribbean Islands, Hawaii and the Philippines beginning with the Spanish American war that ended in the Philippines in 1902. In fact, the grand Spanish flu began in military camps. Does this history appear to be repeating?

*Doesn't it make sense that America is being manipulated, if not targeted, for the purpose of advancing globalistic agendas, central among them is population reduction?

The "Big One"

As mentioned above, during the 1960s and early 1970s, military biological weapons contractors with intimate ties to leading drug industrialists prepared mutants of influenza and para-influenza viruses recombined with acute lymphocytic leukemia viruses. In other words, they stockpiled a quick spreading cancer virus which may also be deployed.(3)

Alternatively, many infectious disease experts and government health officials oblivious to this scientific reality say this avian flu might be the 'Big One." Several days ago, the United Nations released a report that stated as many as 150 million people worldwide might die from this avian flu.

Emma Ross of the Associated Press reported on SARS as the World Health Organization (WHO) launched its "crisis plan to attack" the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. WHO, as you may recall, is a U.N. sponsored organization that is rumored to have helped spread AIDS to Africa by way of contaminated hepatitis B and/or polio vaccinations. There is a reasonable amount of evidence to support this contention.(1)

More disconcerting, the U.N. is known to be heavily influenced by Rockefeller family members and their petrochemical-pharmaceutical interests. History shows Rockefeller fortunes built the U.N. building in New York City. During WWII, the Rockefeller family and their Standard Oil Company supported Hitler more than they did the allies according to court records. One federal judge ruled Rockefeller committed "treason" against the United States. Following WWII, according to attorney John Loftus-an official Nazi war crimes investigator-Nelson Rockefeller persuaded the U.N.'s South American voting block to favor Israel's creation only to assure secrecy regarding his support for the Nazis. Earlier that century, John D. Rockefeller joined Prescott Bush and the British Royal Family in sponsoring the eugenics initiatives that gave rise to Hitler's racial hygiene programs. During the same period the Rockefeller family virtually monopolized American medicine, American pharmaceutics, and the cancer and genetics industries.(2, 3)

Today, the Rockefeller family, its foundation, U.N. and WHO remain at the forefront of administering "population programs" designed to reduce world populations to more manageable levels. As per an advertisement in Foreign Affairs--a prestigious political periodical published by the David Rockefeller directed Council on Foreign Relations--the U.S. population is being targeted for a 50% reduction.(2)

"We've never faced anything on this scale with such a global reach,” said Dr. David Heymann, of the WHO, not regarding the avian flu, but SARS.

"This is the first time that a global network of [Rockefeller-directed infectious disease ‘surveillance’ outposts and] laboratories are sharing information, samples, blood, pictures," added Dr. Klaus Stohr, a WHO virologist coordinating labs internationally. "Basically overnight, there are no secrets, there is no jealousy, there is no competition in the face of a global health emergency. This is a phenomenal network.”(1)

* The term “iatrogenocide” is derived from the combination of words “iatrogenesis,” meaning physician induced illness, and “genocide,” defined as the mass killing and/or enslaving of people for economics, politics, and/or ideology.

About the Author Leonard G. Horowitz, D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H., is an internationally known authority in the overlapping fields of public health, behavioral science, emerging diseases, and bioterrorism. Dr. Horowitz is best known for his national bestselling book, Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola - Nature, Accident or Intentional? (Tetrahedron Press, 1998; 1-888-508-4787) which recently resulted in the United States General Accounting Office investigating the man-made origin of AIDS theory. (See: ) Dr. Horowitz's work in the field of vaccination risk awareness has prompted at least three Third World nations to change their vaccination policies. His stunning testimony before the United States Congress' Government Reform Committee, literally brought the hearing to a halt. (See: Dr. Horowitz questioned government health officials regarding a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) secreted report showing a definitive link between the mercury ingredient (i.e., Thimerosal), common to most vaccinations, and the skyrocketing rates of autism and behavioral disorders affecting our children and the future of our nation.

Dr. Horowitz's most recent book is DNA: "Pirates of the Sacred Spiral", a reference text on the electro-genetics of biology, disease therapy, and human spirituality. This work also details links between the anthrax mailings and human genome project heist, and leading intelligence agency, genetics industry, and pharmaceutical company officials.
