So I can heat my home with cardboard waste and tree trimmings from my yard.
+1 - it isn't the party, stupid. When you have institutionalized a 2-party system, what are the odds that they're just different shades of the same?
The gut reaction to the term "socialism" and its association to the iron curtain communist meanies, without an understanding of what a social democracy truly represents, is exactly why the 1% neo-cons are now dictating the political and economic policies of North America - to the detriment of the majority of its citizens.
The most successful independent game of all time is essentially 3D pixel art.
Sure, looks like fun, but I still want my cup of Joe after playing
buy a french press or a proper espresso machine and learn to make a decent cup of coffee without all the stupid prepackaged waste.
And most people still vote in favour of politicians who clearly are working for these CEOs and their cronies, not the average citizen. Before you can reasonably expect things to change, the public first needs to wake the f up and stop (re)electing these clowns. We're still a very long way from that, as most people still hold firm to the notion that "their party" deserves their vote.
Yyou don't get it. The brotherhood of multinational corporate executives are the ones running this show. They aren't going to outsource themselves - they're at the top of this ponzi scheme.
The MIAA mafia has no borders. This is just an example of using their political influence to get another nation's laws in conformance with their agenda.
the Canadian governments are puppets to their corporate overlords and have historically supported incumbent monopolies over competition and innovation.
No problem - California can ship all of its desert sand to New Orleans to sustain their levees against the rising ocean tides.
Fingers, meet dike.
I'll admit I have no idea of the link between fossil fuels and modern medicine. I was under the impression that most medicines are extractions of natural compounds.
I can cite many examples of scalable food production systems that don't depend on fossil fuels, however, and demonstrations that industrial agriculture that is reliant on fossil fuels for fertilizer are non-sustainable beyond the constraints of supply - they degrade and deplete soil fertility in the long run, leading to desertification.
Have a look at the works of Bill Mollison, Geoff Lawton, Alan Savory, Mark Shepard, Sepp Holzer, Willie Smits if you're interested.
Reboot to anything resembling existing society is doubtful, but I don't think that needs to be such a tragic epitaph.
If human civilization survives the fossil fuel crisis that is likely to occur, it may be better off in the long run. Second only, perhaps to religion, conflicts over fossil fuels have fueled the most inhuman acts in our history.
they're contemplating building a moat around the White House.
