… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Biofuels present investment gold for aviation industry

Aircraft manufacturers Boeing and Airbus are seeing growing business opportunities in introducing sustainable jet fuels amid global efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of aviation, reports Guangzhou's 21st Century Business Herald.

The market for aviation biofuels is estimated to be worth hundreds of billions of US dollars, and two manufacturers are eager to get a headstart by linking supply and demand by establishing relationships among feedstock growers and producers, biofuel producers, distributors and airlines.

The race has already begun, the paper said. On May 19, an Airbus A330-200 from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (flight KL767) commenced the longest ever commercial flight by an Airbus aircraft using sustainable jet fuel. The aircraft used a 20% blend of sustainable fuel made from used cooking oil, for a 10 hour flight from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba.

According to Airbus, the flight was the first in a series of around 20 long-haul commercial flights using an Airbus aircraft as part of the European initiative called ITAKA (Initiative Towards Sustainable Kerosene for Aviation), which aims to speed up the commercialization of aviation biofuels in Europe.

The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), a government-owned aerospace manufacturer established to reduce the country's dependence on Boeing and Airbus, has also sensed the business opportunities presented by biofuels.

The aviation industry in China consumed some 20 million tonnes of jet fuel every year, while nearly 30 million tonnes of used cooking oil is available, said COMAC vice president Shi Jianzhong. From this perspective, China was well-positioned to tap into the new business, he added.

Current technology suggests that for each tonne of used cooking oil, 90% can be turned into biofuel, while about half of that amount could then be used as jet fuel. Meanwhile, the cost of non-petroleum based fuels is about two to three times more than traditional fuels, the paper said.
