Random Pagan Verse:
If your Book is found on you, it is clear proof against you along unless you tell our enemies what you know. You may be taken and tortured,
but keep all thoughts of the Craft from your mind. If the torture is too much to bear, tell them, "I cannot bear this torture. I will confess. What do you want me to say?"
If they try to make you talk about the Craft, do not; but if they try to make you speak of absurd things, such as flying through the air, consorting with the Christian devil,
sacrificing children or eating mens flesh, say, "I held an evil dream; I was beside myself; I was crazed," or words to that effect, to obtain relief from the torture. Not all
magistrates are bad -- if there is any semblance of an excuse, they may show mercy. If you have confessed to anything, deny it afterwards: say that you babbled under torture,
or that you dont remember what you said. If you are condemned, do not be afraid, for the Craft is powerful and your escape will be aided if you stand fast. If you go steadfast
to the flames, be certain that drugs will reach you and you will feel nothing of the pain. You will only go to death and what lies beyond -- the ecstasy of the God and the Goddess.
If you betray anything, however, there is no hope for you in this life or that which is to come.

United States And Canada ban Arctic oil and gas drilling
« on: December 21, 2016, 06:22:19 AM »

The United States and Canada have announced a ban on offshore oil and gas drilling in the Arctic. US officials and environmental groups said the incoming Trump administration would not be able to roll back the decision.

US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday announced a freeze on oil and gas leasing in the Arctic Ocean in a move applauded by environmental groups.
The US will ban oil and gas drilling in the Chukchi Sea and most of the Beaufort Sea off Alaska, as well as in a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean from New England to Virginia. Canada agreed to make its Arctic waters free of drilling, subject to review every five years.

Obama said in a statement the ban reflects "the scientific assessment that, even with the high safety standards that both our countries have put in place, the risks of an oil spill in this region are significant and our ability to clean up from a spill in the region's harsh conditions is limited."
