Greed and Consumption: Why the World is Burning

Rome is scorching hot. This beautiful city is becoming unbearable for other reasons, too. Though every corner of the beaming metropolis is a monument to historical grandeur, from the Colosseum in Rione Monti to the Basilica of Saint John Lateran in San Giovanni, it is now struggling under the weight of its own contradictions. In Via Appia, bins are overflowing with garbage, often spilling over into the streets. The smell, especially during Italy’s increasingly sweltering summers, is suffocating. Meanwhile, many parts of the country are literally on fire. Since June 15, firefighters have reportedly responded to 37,000 fire-related emergencies, 1,500 of them on July 18 alone. A week later, I drove between Campania, in southern Italy, and Abruzzo, in the center. Throughout the journey, I was accompanied by fire and smoke. On that day, many towns were evacuated, and thousands of acres of forests were destroyed. It will take months to assess the cost of the ongoing destruction, but it will certainly be measured in hundreds of millions of euros. Additionally, the entire southern Europe is ablaze, as the region is experiencing its worst heat waves in many years. Greece, Spain, Turkey, and the Balkans are fighting fires that continue

Exclusive — Rep. Kevin Brady: 'American Jobs Plan' Is 'a Race to the Bottom of Jobs and Growth'

President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan, if enacted, would place the United States in “a race to the bottom of jobs and growth,” Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) said on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption. The proposal is marketed as an “infrastructure bill” by Democrats and left-wing news media in response to economic hardship blamed on the coronavirus outbreak. The White House’s “Fact Sheet” on the “American Jobs Plan” makes no mention of economic ruin wrought by government-driven lockdown and shutdown decrees. Brady, ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committee, said the American Jobs Plan will damage America’s international competitiveness — making it a less attractive home for business — through increasing corporate taxes. “This [bill] makes America one of the worst in competition, and is really a race to the bottom of jobs and growth,” he said. Brady added, “What [Joe Biden’s] proposing is to make America’s tax rate worse, making it worse than China’s and equal to Syria and France, not exactly the economic neighbors America deserves to be part of. We will be dead last in

Geoengineering: Fire And Ice

February 25, 2021     Dane WigingtonGeoengineeringWatch.org Geoengineering is wreaking havoc all over the world, from fires to ice. After the passing of the recent engineered winter weather onslaught on Northern California, the climate engineers are yet again cutting off the flow of precipitation to parts of the US West. Even in winter, forest fires are burning with unprecedented ferocity. What will be left after the weather-makers have wrought their decimation on formerly thriving forests? Scorched mountains, ridges and canyons, all of it devoid of life. Above it all the atmospheric aerosol dispersions continue unabated. The new installment of Into The Wild is below.
