Helga Zepp-LaRouche Speaks at National Press Club

Jan. 26, 2016 (EIRNS)—EIR’s Forum today at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., featuring founder of the Schiller Institutes, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, an internationally recognized expert on the Eurasian Land-Bridge, and the New Silk Road and Thomas Wysmuller, former NASA meteorologist and member of "The Right Climate Stuff," drew a quality audience, despite 36 inches of snow, which has prompted Congress to call off its scheduled session for the entire week, and chaos closed area schools, governments and other enterprises through today.

The attendees included a prominent rocket scientist from the JFK era, a Democratic Party pre-candidate for Congress from the area, Russian press, international trade layers, embassy representation, and local supporters.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche gave the following remarks to the EIR Forum at the National Press Club today. She was preceded by Thomas Wysmuller, a meteorologist and former Apollo-era NASA employee and active in "The Right Climate Stuff” group, composed of mainly retired NASA scientists, astronauts, engineers, and administrators who are exploring the real science of climate change, sorting out the fact vs fiction and focussing on available hard, validated data. EIR's Michael Billington was the forum's moderator.

Wysmuller opened the Forum with 12 powerful graphics handed out to all attendees, allowing them to follow, graphic by graphic, his exposure of claims that the COP21 proposals could reduce CO2; graphs exposing that the 7,500-Year Spike in Post-Glacial Sea Level Rise leveled off in the last 8,000 years, and much more—an open-and-shut case. Wysmuller’s presentation had a powerful effect on the audience.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche (transcript) gave a 50-minute tour d’horizon of the strategic situation: the threat of nuclear war, pointing out that today there was no "code of behavior," as there was between Kennedy and Khrushchov in the 1960s; the imminent financial collapse which former BIS Chair William White pointed to at Davos; the plan for global bail-in, which can’t work, and the refugee crisis that is tearing Europe apart. Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche said that if even German Finance Minister Schäuble can say the Mideast needs a Marshall Plan, this shows the world can change, and emphasizes the importance of the work of the international LaRouche movement behind the potential of the Chinese Land-Bridge solution.
