VIDEO: How “Doubt” Prevents Serious Action On Climate Change

cigarettes doctors ad doubt

Lately, I’ve been giving some thought to doubt. Doubt has been used a powerful tool too prevent people in the U.S. to disagree with climate change, to ignore all the warning signs of our mangled, destructive food system, and yes, to get people to still think our president is actually a Muslim.

In this video shows the other times when doubt was used to sell folks on harmful products and even attack those who disagreed. The perfect correlation here is the cigarette companies claiming their products were safe when they knew better. Also, the example of DDT was used here. People were so convinced the insecticide was safe they sent threatening letters to scientist and writer Rachel Carson who wrote the powerful book, Silent Spring, and about the scourge they were to this planet. Due to the efforts of environmentalists the use of DDT was outlawed by Congress.

So what happened to the manufacturers of DDT? Did they go out of business? Nope, they reinvented themselves as biotech corporation Monsanto and now they engineer your food and they can vote since they are a person!

No More “Pink Slime” For Fast Food Restaurants

McDonald’s has dropped the use of the beef additive ammonium hydroxide from their hamburger recipes.

Often called by its less-than-appetizing descriptor “pink slime,” the additive comes from parts of the cow that most people wouldn’t eat. These parts are also the most likely to have bacteria or viruses that cause diseases. Even though pink slime has been approved by the Department of Agriculture, evidence shows that beef treated with ammonia — yes, the stuff you use to clean your bathroom — has been linked to Continue reading

As a part of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative Newark’s Mayor Cory Booker launched Let’s Move! Newark: Our Power (LM!NOP).

Is The Keystone XL Oil Pipeline Dead Or Alive?

Keystone XL tar sands action protest

Nearly two weeks ago, the Obama administration denied a permit to TransCanada for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would run from tar sands in Canada to refineries in Texas. The outcome could not have been better for the environmental community, as Bill McKibben– mastermind behind the long string of protests in Washington– praised Obama for his decision. Everything seemed to be going well, until the Senate GOP gave it another crack. Continue reading

As we discussed in VIDEO: Concerned About Chemtrails? Watch “The Great Culling” Official Air Trailer director Paul Wittenberger and photographer Chris Maple attempt to get some answers for you with “The Great Culling”. This documentary is based on the idea “What we eat, drink, and breathe is under attack!” Think you can escape this? As we discussed in Why Bottled Water Shouldn’t Be Popular With Minorities bottled water may not save you. In this trailer the focus is on what’s in the water. Are you a sheep about to get culled out of humanity? Well then, you need to know what’s going on!

Description: “For all of those who are unfamiliar with the term “culling”, it is simply a less harsh term than the word “killing”. Usually culling is done in animal groups when there is overpopulation of a specific species. But now it’s you. It is our time to be “Culled”. It is known as “the thinning of the herd”. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” Is the first commandment of the Georgia Guidestones coming to fruition? Is the Great Culling being carried out now? For those who continue to not pay attention, you are the “Sheep” and you will be “culled”.”
