These photos are from an abandoned Shell Research facility in the Netherlands. Interest in the murals has ignited ever since the Occupy Amsterdam movement entered the abandoned grounds. Mention of the facility is here in English. The cited article regards the Occupy Amsterdam movement as a whole.

On November 6, protesters squatted a huge old decayed laboratory that had been and would surely stay empty for a long time and is owned by the world’s second richest company—and one of its biggest polluters—Royal Dutch Shell.

That a squatting did occur on the grounds of this facility is corroborated further by this brief article, written in Dutch

Het Groot Laboratorium is een voormalig Shell-gebouw achter de bekende, grote, groene Shelltoren. Het staat al jaren leeg en wacht op een nieuwe bestemming.

Ongeveer 20 betogers hebben zondag hun intrek in het gebouw genomen. De politie is al even langs geweest om te kijken en heeft geen urgentie om het gebouw direct te ontruimen. ‘We weten ervan en nu volgt de standaard kraakprocedure’, aldus de politie.

Volgens de Occupy’ers is er overigens geen sprake van ‘kraken’, ze noemen het een ‘bezetting’ en vinden dat het daarmee iets anders is.

Google Translate (I would seriously appreciate something better):

The Great Lab is a former Shell building behind the famous, big, green Shell Tower. It’s been empty for years, waiting for a new destination.

About 20 protesters have Sunday moved into the building. The police has been stopped by to watch and has no urgency to evacuate the building. Directly We know it and now follow the standard procedure cracking , police said.

According to the Occupy’ers is moreover no ‘crack, they call it an "occupation" and find that doing so is something else.

The top photograph was copywritten by Elmer van der Marel and it can be found here. What you are seeing in these images are symbols of the occult; the all-seeing eye, the wheat in the side-paneling bleeding; the left pelican sacrificing itself.

You can clearly see Venezuela’s flag at the bottom-right diamond (or is it a precursor to the EU?). Look at this ‘dedication plaque’ again:

You have to wonder if Jr G. J. L. Caviet was into the occult with imagery like this. What sorts of chemical experimentation went down at this facility? The last photo in the series is a close-up of one of the many alchemical and astrological references in the windows.

Does the United Nations overplay Global Warming / Climate change?

This week, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is releasing its latest report, the “Working Group II Contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report.” Like its past reports, this one predicts apocalyptic consequences if mankind fails to give the UN the power to tax and regulate fossil fuels and subsidize and mandate the use of alternative fuels. But happily, an international group of scientists I have been privileged to work with has conducted an independent review of IPCC’s past and new reports, along with the climate science they deliberately exclude or misrepresent.
