#Pelosi may not fly to Davos, but Donnie's spouse to West #Palm


Drumpf, also citing the government shutdown, emphasized that taking a trip while 800,000 federal workers weren’t getting paid is “totally inappropriate,” he wrote to Pelosi in a letter.

... Unless the person asking for a flight is part of the nepotist family. Then, it's OK. Seriously, Donnie shall not mention that West Palm, Fla. is closer to the point of departure than is Davos, in Switzerland. He was talking about a flight during the shutdown, not a flight of a certain distance. Only a flight. Thus, Donnie is a hypocrite; may he suffocate on an hamberder.

Fuel to the Fire


https://features.propublica.org/palm-oil/palm-oil-biofuels-ethanol-indonesia-peatland/

The tropical rainforests of Indonesia, and in particular the peatland regions of Borneo, have large amounts of carbon trapped within their trees and soil. Slashing and burning the existing forests to make way for oil-palm cultivation had a perverse effect: It released more carbon. A lot more carbon. NASA researchers say the accelerated destruction of Borneo’s forests contributed to the largest single-year global increase in carbon emissions in two millenniums, an explosion that transformed Indonesia into the world’s fourth-largest source of such emissions.

Okay everyone, time for a difficult conversation.




Most of the world's consumption of shortening-type fats involves killing and abusing animals. This means your buttery grocery items, listed below.


FYI These saturated fats are also the most common ingredient in soaps, which means most of the soap that people use comes directly from animal slaughter and abuse. They are also in countless other common food and household products.

What kind of fats am I referring to? Typically oils that take more heat to melt, including (but not limited to):
- lard - intentionally derived from slaughtering pigs
- butter - product of the dairy industry, which consists of constant forced insemination and ripping babies from their dairy cow mothers (the babies are killed and sold as... Show more...

Palm Oil Was Supposed to Help Save the Planet


A decade ago, the U.S. mandated the use of vegetable oil in biofuels, leading to industrial-scale deforestation — and a huge spike in carbon emissions.

The Curse Of Palm Oil


For some, forests are just expansive areas of unused land but for others, it’s home. Orang Asli, indigenous people of Peninsular Malaysia, depend on the forest as their source of food, medicine and other materials. However, some of the fastest deforestation rates in the world threaten their livelihood. The Curse of Palm Oil, an immersive film by Contrast VR and 101 East, explores the connection Orang Asli have to the forests that are cut down to make way for oil palm trees, which produce the most used vegetable oil in the world. In this immersive film, the sounds of the rainforest clash with the sounds of the machines involved in deforestation, representing the real-life conflict that unfolds daily between the logging companies and indigenous people of Malaysia.
