There are wind turbines in this picture…
Anti-renewable voices will say:

  • they destroy the view (how many can you see here?)

  • they kill whales (disproven by recent research)

  • rescue operations will be hindered (the UK has not had any rescue related issues with their offshore Wind farms).

Toxic Gaslighting: How 3M Executives Convinced a Scientist the Forever Chemicals She Found in Human Blood Were Safe.

Decades ago, Kris Hansen showed 3M that its PFAS chemicals were in people’s bodies. Her bosses halted her work. As the EPA now forces the removal of the chemicals from drinking water, she wrestles with the secrets that 3M kept from her and the world.

Mexico. May 2024.

Mexico is struggling amid record-high temperatures and a severe drought. Water is being trucked into service hospitals and essential services.

  • 85% of the country will experience high temps of 40 C (104 F) this week.
  • 1/3 of the country will reach 45C (113 F) or more.
  • 40% of dams are below 20% capacity.
  • Another 40% are between 20–50% capacity.
  • Power blackouts are occurring due to insufficient water to run hydroelectric power generators.
  • By May 9th, nine cities in Mexico had set temperature records (Ciudad clocked out at 47 C (117 F))

In protest of “intolerable” working conditions and lack of water in their barracks, the police themselves manned a protest blockade and blocked traffic.

Meanwhile, in other species, a large number of Howler Monkeys were found dead or dying from dehydration after literally falling out of the trees “like apples” in the Gulf Coast state of Tabasco1.

Sources:

Mexico’s drought, heatwave and water shortage are so bad even police are blocking traffic in protest. AP news.

It’s so hot in Mexico that howler monkeys are falling dead from the trees AP news.


  1. A local biologist attributed the deaths to a combination of factors including high temps, drought, forest fires and logging of their shade and food trees. ↩︎

There's a crisis in Mexico, but most MSM journalists haven't covered it, or the reason for the suffering, #climatechange:

MX’s drought, heatwave & water shortages have gotten so bad that even police blocked traffic in protest Wed. In recent months, residents of some MX City neighborhoods have regularly taken to forming human chains to block boulevards to demand water. In Apr, complaints about contaminated water sparked a weeks-long crisis in one upscale neighborhood.

Literally nothing except scheduling software could drop cargo ship emmissions by around 20%!?

This needs to be implemented on ALL shipping immediately! With global temperatures continuing to rise dramatically, every little bit helps and this is actually a huge benefit relatively speaking.

Plastic can release toxics into the stomach, according to a new study.

Material left to float in seawater may turn it cloudy potentially releasing toxic chemicals into the water, and could do the same in stomachs.

When left in the water for six months, the pristine plastic also appeared to cause a kind of scum to form on the surface, turning the mix into a “soup”. #ClimateChange #Pollution #Plastic

Dozens of rivers & streams in AS are turning rusty orange, a likely consequence of thawing permafrost.

The Arctic is the fastest-warming region in the globe, & as the frozen ground below the surface melts, minerals once locked away in that soil are now seeping into waterways.

Lawmakers are calling on the Justice Department to probe whether Big Oil has lied to the public about the effects of #ClimateChange. A vote for Joe #Biden will ensure that these probes will begin.
