#15 Shell Understood Climate Change as Early as 1991—and Ignored It - The Top 25 Censored Stories of 2016-2017

#15 Shell Understood Climate Change as Early as 1991—and Ignored It - The Top 25 Censored Stories of 2016-2017

In 1991, Shell Oil Company produced and distributed a twenty-eight-minute documentary titled Climate of Concern. Asserting that climate change was taking place “at a rate faster than at any time since the end of the ice age—change too fast perhaps for life to adapt, without severe dislocation,” the film addressed potentially drastic consequences of climate change including extreme weather, flooding, famines, and climate refugees. While commenting that global warming was “not yet certain,” the Shell film stated, “many think that to wait for final proof would be irresponsible.” The film’s...

6. The Deep State: Government “without Reference to the Consent of the Governed” - Top 25 Most Censored Stories of 2013-2014

It is no secret that concerned citizens are condemning the United States government’s lack of transparency, accountability, and honest constituent representation. Reporting for Moyers & Company, Mike Lofgren, a congressional staff member for twenty-eight years specializing in national security, addressed the issue of the “deep state” that undemocratically orchestrates unchecked private agendas, while corporate media distract the public’s attention by focusing on traditional Washington partisan politics. Lofgren contended that, although the deep state is “neither omniscient nor invincible,”...

Burn Pits - Ethics Alerts

Burn Pits - Ethics Alerts

As burn pits are used as a prime method for waste management on military bases, the process has created concerns about the possible effects on our soldiers’ health. Since the process consists of constantly running jet fuel to burn the waste, the mixture creates dangerously harmful fumes and toxins that are released and to which the soldiers are exposed. Apparently due to the burn pits, many soldiers are now experiencing respiratory and other health complications. The purpose of burn pits is to dispose of waste, on the military base, such as human waste, paper, plastic, and electronics....

Google Could Rig the 2016 Election - Validated Independent News

Research findings indicate that the way Google’s search algorithm interprets election-related information can influence the voting preferences of undecided voters by 25 percent or more. Research psychologist Robert Epstein performed a study that found that the Search Engine Manipulation Effect (SEME) has had potential to seriously threaten America’s democratic system for the past 18 years. Half of our presidential elections were won by margins under 7.6 percent, and the 2012 election by a margin of only 3.9 percent—well within Google’s control.Robert Epstein wrote an op-ed highlighting...

Inside the Military Media Industrial Complex: Impacts on Movements for Peace and Social Justice - Project Censored Chapters

By Peter Phillips and Mickey HuffAmong the most important corporate media censored news stories of the past decade, one must be that over one million people have died because of the United States military invasion and occupation of Iraq.  This, of course, does not include the number of deaths from the first Gulf War nor the ensuing sanctions placed upon the country of Iraq that, combined, caused close to an additional one million Iraqi deaths. In the Iraq War, which began in March of 2003, over a million people have died violently primarily from US bombings and neighborhood patrols.  These...

6. LETHAL NERVE GAS PRODUCTION IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS - Top Censored Stories of 1985

Although the military has been under orders from Congress since 1984 to dispose of nerve gases by 1994, they are currently being manufactured and tested in 46 U.S. communities, in 26 states across the country — usually without the knowledge of the residents.For example, Margaret Erickson, of Gaithersburg, Maryland, discovered that Geomet Technologies had been doing research with nerve gases only 100 yards from the local elementary school since 1983. Representative Michael Barnes (D-MD), whose district includes the Geomet laboratory, said, “The Army has indicated that, in effect, it has no...

On March 9, 1984, NEW YORK TIMES columnist William Safire happily reported that Reagan’s sweeping new censorship law, NSDD-84, had been temporarily withdrawn due to too much Congressional opposition to the use of lie detectors and lifelong censorship requirements.Throughout the rest of 1984, the NEW YORK TIMES and the WASHINGTON POST printed articles that alternately praised Congress for resisting a deplorable attempt to gag American citizens with prior restraint and chiding the Reagan administration for its ill-advised attempts to deprive federal employees of their constitutional rights.As...

12. Pentagon Awash in Money Despite Serious Audit Problems - Top 25 Most Censored Stories of 2013-2014

Congress is expanding the Pentagon’s 2014 budget by $32 billion. The Pentagon currently receives over $600 billion, when its current budget is combined with supplemental war funding. One out of every five US tax dollars is spent on defense, cumulatively more than the total of the next ten countries’ defense budgets combined. Where does the money go? “The exact answer is a mystery,” wrote Dave Gilson for Mother Jones. “That’s because the Pentagon’s books are a complete mess.” As the Government Accountability Office dryly noted, the Pentagon has “serious financial management problems” that...
