16 Nov 2009 The Copenhagen Treaty

ARPA Note and Action Item: The United Nations (including Canada) are meeting in Copenhagen in December with the purpose of making a treaty to combat climate change. Why has there been so much pressure to come up with a treaty after the failure of Kyoto? One of the motivations behind this movement is using the concern over the environment to advance a form of international socialism in which industrial nations give large sums of money to developing countries because of their "carbon footprint". This sounds like the payment of indulgences for sins of omissions (the state religion being pantheistic humanism). For more information, have a look at the proposed Copenhagen treaty. After reading the article below, please consider writing a note to Prime Minister Harper, Environment Minister Prentice, and your MP, urging them to climb off of the climate change bandwagon.

04 Aug 2009 What baby discards could save

Note: Read an ARPA Canada article about the donating cord blood by clicking here.Tom Blackwell, National Post (Aug 4/09): For fetuses, the umbilical cord is a lifeline. Once those babies are out of the womb, however, the cord becomes so much medical waste, tossed out even if the cord blood is saved for future use. But now a group of Toronto researchers says it has discovered that umbilical cords are a "virtually inexhaustible" source of promising stem cells, helping scientists...

17 Apr 2009 Giving Birth to Healing: Why All Prospective Parents Should Consider Donating Cord Blood

By Mark Penninga (First published in Reformed Perspective Magazine) Blood – It’s in us to give. Many of us donate blood because it is an easy way to help those in need. But few are aware that every time a baby is born, the umbilical cord and placenta are filled with a most precious type of blood that can also be donated. Generally referred to as cord blood (i.e. from the umbilical cord), this blood is rich in stem cells. Because stem cells are capable of developing into many types of cells, tissues and even organs, they have a potential to be used for cures to many health defects. Unfortunately, cord blood is usually discarded. In the past, when stem cells were not yet discovered, this was understandable. But now that we know just how rich a treasure they are, it would be wise to consider donating cord blood.

19 Aug 2008 Global Warming:Has the Climate Sensitivity Holy Grail Been Found?

from the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation Newsletter, July 12, 2008 [Editor's note: Last summer University of Alabama Senior Research Scientist in climatology Dr. Roy Spencer and co-authors published a paper reporting their findings that (warming) cirrus clouds diminish rather than increasing in response to rising surface temperatures, thus making them a negative rather than a positive feedback, something they estimated could reduce by 75 percent the amount of warming to be expected from doubled CO2 in the atmosphere, since all the computer climate models assumed the opposite.
