Biosphere

Today is the summer solstice. For eons a time of celebration. Does anybody feel like celebrating?

I will, in spite of the ruthless greed perpetuated in front of us daily, the world is beautiful. Remember that. Its worth saving for humans.

Today’s’ readings:

1. Biosphere

  1. 40% bee loss in US. It will be pretty hard to manually pollinate All plants with Q-tips. Better to have flourishing colonies.

  2. 1000 Quakes in 3 weeks Not sure I’d want to hang around and see how this ends. Just Ole Mum Earth shuddering a bit. There have been rumblings right up into Washington for past yr. Somethings amiss.

2. Climate Crisis

  1. What oil companies knew: the great climate cover-up An informative 30 minute podcast. Ultimately I believe these bastards will get their just deserts. Destroying the planet for personal gain kinda pisses me off now. Imagine a few billion people hunting them down. However I think it will be too late for the rest of us. Each one of them deserves a seat at the international court –Ecocide.

  2. Kochtopus  I vote these guys and all their enablers for the first international court, charged with Ecocide; Horsewhipped in public, Tarred and Feathered, stripped of all assets, to toil in fields till they die. Then composted for flower beds. (Cause toxic shit like them should no go back into the food stream.) And the fellas above as well.

  3. Torrential Rain Of Biblical Proportions Is Causing Immense Devastation For Midwest Farmers

3. Financial

  1. They Are Calling This A “Bloodbath” For The $800 Billion Trucking Industry As U.S. Economic Activity Dramatically Declines. Considered to be a canary in the coal mine warning. Cause if the trucks ain’t running, stuff isn’t selling, corporations aren’t making money, companies fold, people lose their jobs, bills don’t get paid. It becomes impossible to go on as normal.

  2. Why The Odds Of A Recession In The Next Year Are Even Higher Than You Think. From here on its asset preservation not asset increase. Out-o-the-market people.

  3. Swelling US corporate debt raises risk of global financial meltdown. In a time of alleged good times, all to fund stock buybacks and corporate zombies.

6. Society (ills)

  1. United States Spend Ten Times More On Fossil Fuel Subsidies Than Education I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. Between that and their military budget imagine the good they could do themselves if they simply halved both. Treasonous talk!

  1. This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath, the door of a vanished house left ajar. Margaret Atwood a special day for many reasons 🙂
