ExxonMobil’s Dangerous Business Strategy – Jeffery D. Sachs

ExxonMobil’s current business strategy is a danger to its shareholders and the world. We were reminded of this once again in a report of the National Petroleum Council’s Arctic Committee, chaired by ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson. The report calls on the US government to proceed with Arctic drilling for oil and gas – without mentioning the consequences for climate change. …

What the Hell are We Doing in Yemen? – SHELDON RICHMAN

The U.S. government has charged into another civil war in the Middle East. When you find yourself repeatedly asking, “Will they ever learn?” the answer may be that the decision-makers have no incentive to do things differently. What looks like failure may be the intended outcome. Quagmires have their benefits — to the ruling elite — if American casualties are …

Monsanto is the Dept. of Homeland Security for food – Jon Rappoport

“Whenever people encounter a crazy idea, a high-flying absurd notion, they reject it out of hand. That’s the first impulse. ‘No, no one would believe that. It’s ridiculous.’ But as time passes, and this crazy idea is repeated over and over again, people make adjustments to their own minds. ‘Well, maybe it’s true, a lot of important authorities accept it, …

America Being Crushed by a Mountain of Escalating Debt

America, without question, is drowning in a sea of debt, barely holding its head above water. There is the massive national debt of the U.S. government, personal/consumer debt, student debt, and an increasing number of U.S. cities and states that are in debt over their heads.

Flashback: Allegations of Government Human and Biotech Experiments at a Deep Underground Military Base near Dulce

By now, most people know of at least a few of the more infamous instances of our government secretly experimenting on its own citizens. The Tuskegee experiments, where some 600 poor sharecroppers in Macon County, Alabama were told they’d get free government healthcare during the great depression in what turned out to be a government-induced and monitored syphilis infection is one …

THE BIGGEST THREAT TO AMERICAN LIBERTY

George Washington pointed out, “Overgrown military establishments, which under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to Republican Liberty. Wise words by the father of our country, but ones, unfortunately, rejected by modern-day Americans, who love and idolize the enormously overgrown military establishment that now characterizes our federal governmental system. …

Sustainable living means making big changes, so why can’t we face up to it?

Despite the significant risks for human and non-human life, greenhouse gas emissions (GhG) are still rising. Something has to give – and that something would appear more significant than those with the power to stimulate change are willing to admit. The UK government’s Global Calculator is a good example. This recently released tool allows us to model the compatibility of our food, travel, housing and work …

A Walk in the Woods

For the month of April, I decided to visit the Haw River, which flows near where I live, every day. I wouldn’t hold myself strictly to this, but I would try, and I would observe—not impartially, of course, but closely—how I felt. Some days I took leisurely walks with friends, leaning over the railing of the pedestrian bridge to watch …

Is Jobless Growth Inevitable?

ABU DHABI – Ever since the industrial revolution, humans have been ambivalent about technological progress. While new technology has been a major source of liberation, progress, and prosperity, it has also fueled plenty of agony – not least owing to the fear that it will render labor redundant. So far, experience has seemed to discredit this fear. Indeed, by boosting …
