Should shopping channels be banned from tv? What about morning tv shows promoting people / companies that sell ‘stuff’ we don’t need? And what about the manufacturing world? They actually get away with selling us ‘new’ products with ‘built-in obsolescence‘ as part of there guarantee! Once again it’s profits before planet /people.
Oil Companies & Plastic…
The BIG and powerful oil companies (Shell etc) are now putting there vast financial resources into building new PLASTIC manufacturing plants (especially in the USA). They are intent on making money (profits) from the billions of gallons of oil they extract from mother earth any way they can.
They know the motoring world is ‘going green eclectic/hydrogen’ but still continue producing oil with no consideration for the consequences. Profit (greed) is the car they drive!
The ‘Recycling Smokescreen’…
It was indeed the oil companies that originally created and promoted the recycling ‘industry’ back in the 70’s. It was a marketing move on there part with the pretence that ‘everything‘ would be recycled so plastic is ‘ok.’
That was back in the 1970’s and they are still promoting this ‘unworkable and deceiving’ notion today (i.e. ridiculous and totally false labeling). The sad part about is that good people are diligently recycling there waste every day thinking it is solving the problem, IT IS NOT.
Now the world is deluged in single-use and non-degradable plastics. The oil companies are ramping up plastic production, dumping toxic waste products, continuing to suffocate the planet, killing millions of animals and plants, and it doesn’t worry them one bit. They are now promoting plastic use MORE than ever before!
WE’RE STILL EATING MEAT
“65 BILLION animals per year are being killed for human consumption (that’s 2,000 per second!) which includes the barbaric treatment and traumatic ending of animal life.
Human infectious disease outbreaks are also rising and in recent years there have been Ebola, Bird flu, Middle East respiratory syndrome (Mers), Rift Valley fever, Sudden acute respiratory syndrome (Sars), West Nile virus, HIV, and Zika virus all crossed from animals to humans. We have recently experienced the COVID-19 virus…and there’s more to come!
BACTERIA…THEY’RE OUTPERFORMING ANTIBIOTICS!
Antibiotic resistance is now one of the biggest public health challenges of our time. Far bigger than COVID-19.
Antibiotic resistance happens when germs like bacteria and fungi develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. That means the germs are not killed and continue to grow. Infections caused by antibiotic–resistant germs are difficult, and sometimes impossible, to treat.
Antibiotic resistance and ‘superbugs’
The overuse of antibiotics in recent years means they’re becoming less effective and has led to the emergence of “superbugs”. These are strains of bacteria that have developed resistance to many different types of antibiotics, including:
MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
Clostridium difficile (C. diff)
The bacteria that cause multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis
