The Mayan ‘Decline’ and Small Horses … More Climate Change Propaganda?

Here we go again. Global warming is suddenly back in the news and I think I know why. But before I discuss that, let’s take a look at the latest grim findings.

Once more we’re reading about the terrible toll that global warming can take. In this case, we’re being led to understand that it may have resulted in the demise of a great, ancient civilization and also the reduction in size of various noble mammals.

Civilization first. According to hundreds of articles now clogging the Internet, scientists in Britain believe that a lack of rainfall may have doomed the great Mayan civilization.

This “speculation” is based on the idea that rainfall in areas of Mayan habitat declined for as long as a decade at a time. The scientists published their findings in the Feb. 24 issue of the journal Science.

FoxNews/LiveScience quotes the lead researcher himself. “‘Our results show rather modest rainfall reductions between times when the Classic Maya civilization flourished and its collapse between 800 to 950,’ said Eelco Rohling, a paleoclimatologist at the University of Southampton in England.

“These reductions amount to only 25 to 40 percent in annual rainfall, but they were large enough for evaporation to become dominant over rainfall, and open water availability was rapidly reduced. The data suggest that the main cause was a decrease in summer storm activity.”

According to Rholing, even modest reductions in rainfall may have toppled the Mayans if the rainfall occurred in the summer when the Mayans planted and harvested.

What does the article conclude? “The collapse of the ancient Mayan civilization may have been linked to relatively modest dry spells, researchers now say.”

According to the story, “Scientists have long drawn connections between the slow decline of the ancient Maya, which took about two centuries, ‘to climate change, and especially to drought,’ said researcher Martín Medina-Elizalde at the Yucatan Center for Scientific Research in Mexico.”

OK, so climate change (global warming) caused the end of a wonderful civilization. But worse is to come. Climate change apparently shrinks mammals, including humans.

According to another spate of articles hitting the Internet, humans may miniaturize as a result of global warming.

Here’s something from the Christian Science Monitor on the syndrome: “It’s been long known that the Earth’s rising surface temperatures portend mass extinction, prolonged droughts, extreme weather, and rising seas. Now we can add a new worry: Humanity could be transformed into a race of hobbits.”

The article tells us that Sifrhippus sandrae, “the earliest known horse,” was about the size of a small dog but actually got even smaller during a time when the globe was warming, about 56 million years ago. The decline in stature lasted about 130,000 years and then, when the planet began to cool, the size of the horses “shot back up” over the next 45,000 years. Here’s some more from the article:

The researchers ruled out atmospheric pressure and aridity, and the animal’s diet, and concluded that temperature was causing the species’ rapid shrinkage and growth. “This, for the first time, tells us that temperature is what’s driving the body size evolution for these horses,” said the University of Florida’s Jonathan Bloch, who co-authored the study, in an interview with LiveScience.

These findings, which were published Thursday in the journal Science, are consistent with Bergmann’s rule, an ecological principle, first proposed by German naturalist Christian Bergmann in 1847, that animals of a given species tend to be smaller in hotter climates. Bergmann’s rule holds for about three-quarters of all mammals. But does that include us? Anthropologists have found that Arctic populations such as the Inuit, Aleut, and Sami peoples, tend, on average, to be heavier than people living closer to the equator. But there are many exceptions to this tendency.

The article about the Mayans is a speculative one. The researchers involved make the case that “modest” reductions in rainfall may have ruined Mayan civilization. But here at the Daily Bell, we’ve generally become fairly skeptical of these sorts of reports. Scientists, it seems, are constantly trying to explain the demise of “great” civilizations based on disasters that have a specifically modern character.

Of course, these civilizations weren’t so great after all. The “empire” phase of civilization may actually spell the END of a vibrant civilization. Scientists are constantly bemoaning the fate of such civilizations when the violent, bloody, expansionary phase is an expression of a particular culture’s “last gasp.” We’ve written about that many times. You can see one such article here: Mayan Worship.

The reports about equestrian shrinkage are new to me, but no less suspect. Notice, please, the incredible specificity with which these results are presented. The timeline is exact even though one has to travel back over 50 million years to make the appropriate connections. Now, you may believe in the reports of these “experts,” but I’m personally skeptical of articles that track events that are tens of millions of years old with such exactitude.

So if there are considerable reasons to doubt these two reports that have appeared back to back in the journalScience, why might they have been presented now?

Well … here at the Daily Bell, we track the dominant social themes of the elites. These elites are, in our view, trying to create world government and regularly attempt to frighten Western middle classes into giving up power and wealth to globalist institutions like the UN.

Global warming is an almost textbook case of one such dominant social theme, and I’d argue these reports fit right into the larger pattern we attempt to analyze. The idea is to both criminalize and monetize energy to gain greater control over Western sociopolitical and economic facilities.

“Climate change” is likely one of their latest and most important methodologies. It’s also a failing one. It’s been exposed time and again via failed models being used to establish the phenomenon. Then there are the many emails that evidently show a small group of committed climatologists have conspired to create phony evidence of warming.

It may be, of course, that the globe is (somehow) warming, though that surely doesn’t seem established to me. But the idea that humans’ tiny contribution to the carbon dioxide in the air is the contributing factor to any potential rise in temperature is simply adding one speculation to another.

It is something to try to reshape human behavior around – at great cost. That doesn’t stop the elites from trying, of course. There are already “climate exchanges” in Europe and Africa and the top-end cars of prestigious manufacturers like Mercedes and BMW are turning out autos that supposedly produce little or no carbon dioxide.

I’d also note that these two reports are fairly conveniently timed to buttress the recent outcome of a South African (UN) conference on global warming. Here’s an excerpt of a report on the Durban affair I found at It’s written by attorney, Shannon Goessling:

The world community stepped away from the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa two short months ago with promises that all nations will submit to the climate control supremacy of the UN – by 2020.

In the interim, developed (i.e., Western) countries will be required to pay into a $100 billion a year Green Climate Fund – run by the UN – ostensibly to help offset the “costs” to countries affected by climate change. More ominously, a Climate Court of Justice is to be established to oversee and enforce the new emissions mandates.

At the same time, while thousands of scientists openly oppose the political conclusions drawn by UN policymakers on man-made climate change, Canada became the first industrialized nation to exit the UN’s Kyoto global warming treaty. But they didn’t just withdraw quietly.

When in doubt … follow the money. About US$100 billion is now at stake along with a radical expansion in UN power. The meme itself seems to hang in the balance. I’d argue, therefore, these two articles appearing NOW are no coincidence. I expect more such reports.

What we here at the Daily Bell call the Internet Reformation has done us a great service when it comes to elite themes. Not only can we track their creation and dissemination, we can see the timing as well.

Now, one can argue that none of these observations are credible and that it is all “coincidence.” But what cannot be argued is that there are only a handful of major media firms now – perhaps five in all of the US.

Track the ownership and I’m fairly sure you’ll find the same handful of names over and over again. The power at the top of the West is fairly incestuously distributed. How could it be otherwise? The top elite families apparently control hundreds of TRILLIONS of dollars via their grip over central banking.

And while 100 years ago there were almost NO central banks, today there are 150 and the BIS to supervise them. How did that happen? And who supervises the BIS? I think I know.

Global warming, in my view, is just another tool the elites are trying to use to consolidate yet more power and wealth over the rest of us. This is one of the reasons I’m suspicious of these articles and their timing. Promotion … or professional research? Or both. You decide.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
