Climate fear mongering is rooted in the capacity to terrorize the population over threats that are less of a concern, all the while we’re leaning towards ignoring the true threats to our world’s ecosystem.
Isn’t it fascinating how human beings who shudder over Trump’s actions to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord say nothing about other disasters, such as Fukushima and the impact it has over the Pacific Ocean, polluting it with radiation?
A top 4 threats list to the environment has been compiled below. More often than not, these issues are generally neglected by advocates of climate change, even when our planet is under immediate threat. Although climate change and the removal of the US from the Paris agreement is a serious issue, the current situation is perilous and one that we can no longer afford to ignore.
As corporate sponsorship haunts mainstream media reporting, it will be a rare occurrence when you read about these issues in the traditional media…
1. Mass Deforestation
Indonesian forests, million-year-old forests in Tasmania and the South American Amazon Rainforest are being decimated at an alarming rate. But it isn’t just in these nations. Deforestation is occurring at breakneck pace across every country.
The clear-cutting of trees is fast contributing to climate change and is arguably the biggest contributor. Forest regrowth is unable to keep up with our greed and without the trees science has proven time and again the chance of droughts skyrocketing, not to mention climate instability and the extinction of many precious species.
2. Genetically Engineered Crops – GMOs
There’s a reason why Europe and Russia are reluctant to allow GMOs into their agricultural markets. They’re dangerous and pose a risk to destabilizing our food supplies.
However, the GMO threat posed isn’t one the mainstream media is willing to cover despite the spread of genetic pollution. The world’s food crops stand to be contaminated by unintended mutations at alarming rates. What used to be a tradition to gather and cultivate natural seeds is now illegal wherever Monsanto appears.
As GMO News notes, “when you choose to interfere with nature, you should be prepared for results that are far from natural.”
Without reliable food crops what happens to humanity? You can’t eat money.
As mentioned above, Fukushima is rarely talked about since the initial disaster that led to the melting of toxic radioactive fuel rods.
Since the incident 6 years ago, some fuel rods are still yet to be located and contained by the Japanese government. The once pristine Pacific Ocean is now under radioactive assault with en mass die-offs occurring regularly.
It is predicted that the cleanup will keep contractors in a job for up to a century. To add to the radioactive disaster, a containment pool near the site will suffer a similar fate when the next earthquake hits, further compounding the current crisis.
Although climate change is a concern, what ever happened to media coverage of Fukushima? Oh…hang on, I guess it’s old news.
4. We’re Drinking and Eating Big Pharma’s Drugs
Where are the mainstream media reports on the toxic drugs flushing our waterways and oceans? Whether you are a regular subscriber to Big Pharma drugs, it’s likely that you will still test positive for trace amounts in your bloodstream.
The environmental damage caused by pharmaceutical waste being poured into the river systems around the world has direct consequence once you start consuming the fish. Antibiotics, pain killers and antidepressant traces have all been found in the fish and seafood we eat. Over time, populations of fish such as minnows have almost completely collapsed. Other aquatic life face similar consequences, and a fragile ecosystem hangs in the balance.
Although climate change is a very real threat, according to scientists around the world, it appears the corporate machine is working hard to keep the immediate threats out of the headlines.
