UN Climate Change Boss Worships Mayan Murder Cult
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 9, 2014, 09:09 PM

In May 2010, United Nations Climate Change Chief Christiana Figueres called for the global eco-community to worship and celebrate the Mayan Jaguar goddess, Ixchel during a UN Summit in Cancun, Mexico. Apparently, when Mayans worshipped Ixchel, her followers were expected to conduct ritual human sacrifices.

According to the Mayan Gods and Goddesses Website, "The ancient Maya had a complex pantheon of deities whom they worshipped and offered human sacrifices. Rulers were believed to be descendants of the gods and their blood was the ideal sacrifice, either through personal bloodletting or the sacrifice of captives of royal blood. The Mayan vision of the universe is divided into multiple levels, above and below earth, positioned within the four directions of north, south, east and west. After death, the soul was believed to go to the Underworld, Xibalba (shee bal bah), a place of fright where sinister gods tested and tricked their unfortunate visitors."

Ukraine Faces Chernobyl Nuke Winter
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Apr 9, 2014, 08:20 PM

Apparently, Kiev should not have to worry about the Russian army invading the Ukraine. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has shut down projects to contain nuclear radiation fallout contamination from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which was shut down two decades ago due to a massive radiation leak.

According to Fox News, "Construction of the coated steel, climate-controlled sarcophagus was begun in 2010 to cover the site of the infamous 1986 meltdown, scene of the worst nuclear accident in history. But finishing the $2.1 billion project requires money and, likely, stability from the Ukraine government and international backers. Planned in sections comprised of two 300-foot-high arches that will span the site and then be walled on the sides, the project will never be completed by the original goal of 2015, officials acknowledge."
