The Wealthy Farmer - The Complete Guide on Investing in Agricultural Land

Are you getting a little tired of savings accounts with interest rates that are less than the rate of inflation? Does the roller coaster of the stock market make you want to puke every time that it plunges? Would you like to get a little personal enjoyment out of your investments? If you have answered “Yes” to any of these
questions, then “The Wealthy Farmer – The Complete Guide to Investing in Agricultural Land” may be just what the doctor ordered!

While most people aren’t aware that rural dirt has been one of the top investments for the last 13 years, there will be some folks that will be absolutely amazed that annual returns of 10% + are possible without ever having to get your hands dirty. But wait, there’s more!

When it comes to equity growth or dividends, not only does farmland blow traditional investments out of the water in terms of annual return; it gives the investor an additional bonus that he or she can enjoy every single day – “Dividends Squared.”

Dividends squared is the personal enjoyment of the asset, whether it’s creating your own personal playground described in “Building a Lake By the Cabin”, crafting your own personal pardise as outlined in “Creating Your Own Provincial Park” or “Designing & Landscaping an Energy Efficient Home for Less”.

In fact, the book “The Wealthy Farmer – The Complete Guide to Investing in Agricultural Land” is so unique, it is the only investment book in the world that contains a chapter on “Death and Taxes and How to Avoid Both”. So read and enjoy. Your heart, soul and bank account will thank you for it.

The Emperor's New Climate - Debunking the Myth's of Global Warming

If you are skeptical about the gloom and doom global warming pundits are claiming? Do you believe that that Kyoto Accord is nothing more than a climate change Bre-X? Then this book is for you!

Bruno Wiskel is a professional geologist who uses the rock record to show that not only is climate change "Business as Usual" but that it has been happening continuously for the last four and a half billion years. In his book "the Emperor's new climate, Bruno illustrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that that the current run up in temperature and sea level rise is merely a continuation of a process that started 18,000 years ago.

While modern climatologists are screaming about a sea level rise of 3mm per year that will drown cities, erode coastlines and cause destruction and pestilence in general, they have completely forgotten to mention about the 120 metres of sea level rise since 16,000 BC that coincided exactly with the retreat of the continental glaciers.

The Emperor's New Climate - Debunking the Myths of Global Warming

If you think the Kyoto Accord is about stopping climate change, I am also selling bridges on this website, just click on The Kyoto Accord is no more about stopping climate change than George Bush's war on terror is about liberating the Iraqis. Using economic principles so simple, even a member of parliament can understand them, "The Emperor's New Climate" shows in great detail why the Kyoto Protocol could never work.

"The Emperor's New Climate" debunks 16 global warming myths:

  1. That carbon dioxide is the most important greenhouse gas.
  2. That global warming started in 1750 as a result of human produced greenhouse gasses.
  3. That humans are responsible for global warming.
  4. That global warming is the result from the increase of greenhouse gasses.
  5. That global warming will cause more violent weather.
  6. That global warming will cause mass extinctions.
  7. That the Kyoto accord was implemented to stop global warming.
  8. That the Kyoto accord will stop the global increase of carbon dioxide.
  9. That signing the Kyoto accord was economically and politically good for Canada.
  10. That the Canadian participation in Kyoto will help reduce global warming.
  11. That Global warming is bad for Canada.
  12. That scientists are in agreement of causes and effect of global warming.
  13. That scientists and politicians are committed to reducing their own greenhouse gasses.
  14. Using alternative energy is better than using fossil fuel.
  15. Planting trees will stop the rise of greenhouse gasses.
  16. That global warming will cause a sea level rise that will flood Canada's coastlines.

Everything from Sea level rise to planting trees to save our royal rear ends is covered in this book in a concise and humorous manner. Its the book you have been waiting for!!!
