By Vicente Navarro Lopez Source Kaosenlared.net / The Dawn / December 3, 2015 The aim of this treaty is not to facilitate the trade between the US and the EU, but to eliminate what the treaty defines as barriers to trade and investment, which refers to standards of protection of workers, environments and consumers that countries have developed in response to popular demands. In several previous articles I have warned about the danger this misnamed new treaty between the US and the European Union (EU) poses for [...]

Planet Earth to The Donald

From: Planet Earth To: Donald Trump; the Kochs; the Waltons; Ted Cruz; Ben Carson; execs of Wall St., Monsanto and the oil companies; et cetera; on the occasion of the COP21 Paris Agreement Dear The Donald et al., I'm pretty forgiving about most things, because I know someone only really learns something when they realize it and choose to change for their own sake, so I've let you continue with some rather large delusions for some time, in the hopes that the natural consequences piling up from [...]

The Over-riding Urgency of Climate Change

by Charles Fredricks This year 20,000,000 people were displaced by climate events; more than by war (that's from the UN). In a few years, without prompt action, that number will increase tenfold, and from there the news will only get worse. This needs to remain a top-priority focus, educating the public and discussing steps that must be taken now to avert greater damage. To me Arun Gupta's article fails in this respect. It is rife with political targets, and short on solutions. There are carbon pricing schemes [...]
