I am an admirer of Dahr Jamail’s reporting. In this article, Oceans In Crisis, Jamail tells us that we are losing the oceans. http://truth-out.org/news/item/29930-oceans-in-crisis-one-woman-will-cross-the-pacific-to-raise-awareness He reports on the human destruction of the oceans. It is a real destruction with far-reaching consequences.
That fact is indisputable.

No, it really has nothing to do with what shade of green shirt I should wear today for St. Patrick’s Day.

The primary objective behind environmental activism related to anthropogenic global warming (AGW), aka “climate change,” is apparently not climatological, but rather is economic. The revelation came not from “global-warming deniers,” but from the United Nations’ own Christiana Figueres, who serves as the Executive Secretary of the […]

Debt-serfs who make the difficult and risky transition to small-scale business owners find they have simply moved to another class of serfdom.
The core dynamic of debt-serfdom is that debt-serfs must borrow money to buy essentials while the wealthy borrow to invest in productive […]
