The National – 24 March 2019

Last week, he trampled all over its remaining tattered pages. He did so, of course, via Twitter.

Economist Frédéric Lordon’s Letter to Emmanuel Macron: “Hand Over the Keys”

23 March 2019 — Novara Media

In response to the explosive yellow vests (gilets jaunes) movement, French president Emmanuel Macron announced the “Great Debate” – a vast, unprecedented nationwide exercise in consulting citizens on how to fix France’s problems – starting in December 2018 and ending this March. Attempting to shore up his legitimacy and dampen contestation, Macron travelled the country engaging in lengthy debates with locally elected mayors.

Why Fake Meat and Eliminating Livestock Are Really Bad Ideas By Ronnie Cummins

24 March 2019 — Dr Mercola

Story at-a-glance

  • Our chemical and fossil fuel-intensive system of industrial agriculture is belching out 43 to 57 percent of the greenhouse gas pollution that has dangerously destabilized our climate
  • The driving force of Big Food Inc. and their army of chemical farmers, food processors and marketers is the idea that maximizing short-term profits trumps all other considerations, including health, economic justice, animal welfare, environment and climate stability
  • CAFOs are primary drivers of deteriorating public health as well. Filthy, inhumane, polluting factory farms mass produce approximately 90 to 95 percent of the meat and animal products consumed in America today
  • Use of antibiotics on factory farms spreads antibiotic-resistant pathogens into our food, and an average of 90,000 Americans now die from antibiotic-resistant infections on an outpatient basis every year, according to the latest calculations by Cambridge University researchers
  • To end this degenerate food system, join the growing movement and consumer boycott of all factory-farmed meat, dairy and poultry products, not just at the grocery store, but in restaurants as well — and not just occasionally, but every day
