Shutting Down Coal; Reducing Dependency on Vehicles; Nation’s Corn, Soybeans Threatened; & National Disaster Preparation Pays Off – Episode 24

Shutting Down Coal

“You can chose to shutter your plants now or let them continue to explode. We’ve been seeding coal trains with explosives for months and the only way to guarantee the safety of your workers and the people around your plants is to shut down. But since you’ve disregarded the health effects of your business for decades, we expect you to continue your belligerent endangering of life.”

Reducing Dependence on Vehicles

Citing social ostracism and attacks on the fuel infrastructure, industry analysts have identified a sharp drop in the sale of large and “gas guzzling” vehicles. At the same time, dealer associations report record sales of not only hybrid and all-electric automobiles but also electric scooters and commuting bikes.

Nation’s Corn, Soybeans Threatened

“I hope this whole thing goes off or I am going to be in hot water for falsifying this information. I mean, I’m sending the USDA a report on a threat that doesn’t really exist.”

“Well, they prop up an agricultural system that is endangering our long-term survival and yet they don’t issue warnings about the real systemic problems or recommend ways to fix them. It is all reactive and we’re making them be proactive.”

National Disaster Preparation Pays Off

Just days after the largest recalls in US history — affecting both fresh produce and frozen foods — grocery stores across the country are reporting record sales of canned and shelf-stable goods. In scenes more typical of impending regional disasters such as hurricanes or blizzards, images across social media show empty shelves and full carts nationwide.
