Climate Change Is the Symptom. Consumer Culture Is the Disease.

C40 Cities, a network of 94 of the world’s biggest cities, released a report on Wednesday estimating how much consumption habits drive the climate crisis. The results were staggering: In those nearly 100 cities, where a combined 700 million live, the consumption of goods and services “including food, clothing, aviation, electronics, construction and vehicles” is responsible for 10 percent of global greenhouse gases. That’s nearly double the emissions from every building in the entire world.

If consumption-based emissions in those big cities continue on their current track, they will “nearly double between 2017 and 2050—from 4.5 gigatons to 8.4 gigatons per year,” the report says. That means the cities would not be able to achieve reductions necessary for the world to stay below 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming, which the scientific community says is necessary to preserve a livable planet. In fact, they would use up their budget for that target in the next 14 years.

more bogus studies... fear fear fear fear:

Would you like brain damage with that? America’s favorite cooking oil causes neurological changes, says animal study
Peter Andrews is an Irish science journalist and writer, based in London. He has a background in the life sciences, and graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in Genetics.

New research has shown that despite being marketed as a healthy alternative, soybean oil, America’s most popular oil, causes neurological changes in the brains of mice, and may contribute to autism and dementia in humans.

Extracted from the seeds of soybeans and used in everything from fast food to animal feed and even baby formula, soybean oil is easily the most widely consumed oil in the US, ubiquitous in the national cuisine.

It’s in McDonald’s fries, Pizza Hut crust, and the “healthy” 9-grain bread used for your Subway sandwich.

A research team from University of California, Riverside has been studying the impact of soybean oil for several years. They previously found that it induces diabetes and obesity in mice, hardly surprising given that vegetable oils are high in saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. By now, most people know that eating too much fried food is bad for your ticker.

Whoa, not the most photogenic four people I've seen.
Governments keep interest rates low to dissuade people from saving. Typically if you're not saving then you're consuming (most people aren't venture capitalists after all). Governments (or rather the central banks) could reduce consumption by raising interest rates. It's a simple matter requiring no new legislation. Of course they'll avoid doing that for as long as possible. Raising interest rates makes the debt more expensive. That means that politicians will either have to raise taxes or cut back on the pork they bring home to buy votes. Raising interests rates would actually be good for the economy since domestic investment (which comes from savings) contributes more to GDP growth than consumption, government spending, or exports.
read this article to see how pernicious the left is.. they completely deny that they are the power...
no one gets fired for spouting liberal talking points.

Why the Left Is Losing the Information Age
Liberals assumed digital technology would help their side. They forgot how power works.

Was he designated a terrorist though?

how did he do this video just a few months ago?

^^ He's probably had Parkinson's for several years.
he looks very much in control and lucid in that video

and those vocals are pretty top notch

how did he do that if he is so feeble in real life?

He looks good in the interview too. When Ozzbournes show first aired almost 20 years ago he actually looked worse than he does now imo.
