A Polarized World to Better Control the Population as Food Scarcity Begins

Eco Liberty conclusion: The real reason why I watch and post video on Eco Liberty relating the solar minimum because Adapt 2030 always post video to share very important information about the oncoming the solar minimum and why it will affect the global economy majority and will have great chance of a major food shortage on a global scale. That I often post videos from Adapt 2030 so you people can be informed about the oncoming solar minimum; because the Mainstream media will not cover it and to keep you in the dark by pushing that Man-made global warming garbage; telling you that Carbon Dioxide (plant food) as pollutant that is causing runway global warming which is not the case; Carbon Dioxide is plant food; plants will die without Carbon Dioxide. People; please give this video a thumbs up on You Tube if you haven’t subscribed to Adapt 2030 please Subscribe to that channel; to give David DuByne the praise and courage for the hard work he puts in to give you the very important information that Mainstream media will not cover.

Your Social Media Is Your Credit Score?

G**gle’s CEO Sundar Pichai testified before a committee this week and he didn’t want to tell the whole truth. Why? Because hid company’s partnership with Chin@ is DANGEROUS. I explain why in this video.

Economists Love Carbon Taxes. Lots of Regular Folks Don’t.

Oil company ConocoPhillips just pledged to spend $2 millionpromoting the carbon tax and dividend plan devised by the Climate Leadership Council (CLC) organized by former Republican Secretaries of State James Baker III and George Shultz. ConocoPhillips is among the CLC’s founding member oil companies, alongside ExxonMobil, BP, and Shell.

The goal of the CLC’s carbon tax and dividend plan is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels by increasing fossil fuel prices over time. Under the CLC’s carbon tax and dividend plan an initial tax per ton of carbon dioxide would be set at oil and gas wellheads and coal mineheads.

As the tax escalates at a steady predictable rate over the years, higher electricity and transport prices are supposed to encourage increased conservation, greater fuel efficiency, and the development and deployment of no-carbon energy sources. Once the CLC’s carbon tax plan is adopted, all other regulations and subsidies aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions, e.g., automobile fuel efficiency and renewable portfolio standards, are supposed to be permanently repealed.

Finally, the linchpin of CLC’s plan is that all of the proceeds from the carbon tax would be divided equally among U.S. citizens and returned as an annual lump-sum directly to them. The CLC argues that “conferring financial benefits in the here and now would fundamentally alter the cost-benefit time horizon of climate mitigation, re-casting a carbon fee as a popular and even populist solution.”

The CLC cites a 2018 study that finds that 70 percent of American households would receive more in dividend payments than they would pay in increased energy prices. Taxpayers in the bottom income quintile would average a net tax cut of 4.4 percent of pretax income while those in the middle quintile would receive a net tax cut of 0.3 percent of pretax income.

While the concept of revenue neutral carbon taxes for addressing the problem of man-made climate change is belovedby most economists, the idea that they are “a popular and even populist solution” may be a bit premature.

The recent Yellow Vest protests in France were sparked by just a 12 cent increase in transport fuel taxes aimed at reducing that country’s carbon dioxide emissions. (For the record, a gallon of gas already costs $5.54 in France.) The New York Times suggested that this outburst might have been avoided if the taxes had been specifically devoted to “subsidies to encourage people to use less-polluting forms of energy, and expanding transit networks.”

Consider also what happened to carbon tax proposals in Washington state during the past couple of elections. In 2016, a revenue neutral carbon tax referendum failed when environmental activists opposed it on the grounds that the tax revenues should not be returned to voters, but instead be devoted to a panoply of green energy and public transit projects.

In 2018, Washington state voters rejected a carbon tax referendum crafted by environmental activists that would have created a kitty of new tax money available for politically favored groups to shower on their pet projects.

Australia adopted a carbon tax in 2012 that was repealed under popular pressure two years later.

Canada, meanwhile, has adopted a carbon tax scheme imposing a price of $20 per ton that applies to just four provinces (the others have set rates on carbon emissions that are already high enough to meet the new federal standards). Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised that 90 percent of the revenues collected will be rebated back to the residents of Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and New Brunswick.

Despite the rebate pledge, Yellow Vest protests against the new Canadian carbon tax broke out this past weekend in some cities, including Edmonton, Toronto, Winnipeg, Okanagan, Moncton, Calgary, Saskatoon, and Halifax.

A 2018 World Bank report identifies 51 carbon pricing initiatives as having already been implemented or as scheduled for implementation. These consist of 25 emissions trading systems, mostly located in subnational jurisdictions, and 26 carbon taxes primarily implemented on a national level.

While carbon taxes make sense to economists worried about climate change, raising the price of staples like transport fuel, heat, and electricity remains a steep political hill to climb.

For folks who are worried about climate change, a more politically popular approach might be to incentivize a vigorous technology research and development program that aims at making low carbon energy cheaper than fossil fuels. In the meantime, encouraging economic growth will help to create the wealth needed to adopt low carbon technologies and adapt to whatever harms may emerge from man-made global warming.

South Africa: Land Reform Approved.

South Africa is moving ahead with land reform set to officially start in March of 2019. Is this only going to make a bad situation worse? Who can help these people? Who is even willing to try?

Eco Liberty Conclusion To the whites in South Africa “I hope you’re ready for what is coming; by March 2019 when the government move ahead with Land Reform to seizure land from the white people without compensation. This what happen in Zimbabwe back in in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s which lead to economic hardship and poverty including Zimbabwe hyperinflation. But now Robert Mugabe is out of office the new government decide to invite the white farmer back to help Zimbabwe economy recover.

South Africa will be like Zimbabwe, but more…

In 1994 the media used Zimbabwe as an example of a successful multicultural country with a strong economy. They said we could be just like them. Today the media says it’s impossible, South Africa will never be like Zimbabwe. They are right though, it will be much worse. Be Ready.

Global Wheat Shortage / Hungersteine / Vegan Death Cult

From the appearance of “hunger stones” in the extreme drought conditions, to mainstream admission of the global wheat shortage, the signs of Peak Food are everywhere as the changes in our climate accelerate. Missouri regulates what you can call “meat.”‘ London’s first insect farm has opened. And the vegan death cult evidences itself to be equally venomous as the climate change cult. Christian breaks it down.

What did people eat during the Great Depression? A look at the foods that helped people survive famine

(Natural News) The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic downturn that began in 1929 and continued until about 1939. It affected North America, Europe, and other industrialized areas of the world. It was the most serious economic tragedy ever experienced by the industrialized Western world in modern history.

The full burden of the economic crisis fell squarely on the shoulders of the nation’s working class. They struggled badly for their survival during this most difficult period, which led them to find a number of ways to put food on the table. The following Great Depression foods helped them live from day to day when nothing else was available.

  1. Mock apple pie – As the name suggests, this recipe is but a mock version, which means it contains no actual apples. This recipe replaced apples with crushed crackers, cinnamon, and a flavored syrup. The most famous version is the Ritz Mock Apple Pie, which contained sugar, butter, cinnamon, lemon juice, and Ritz crackers.
  2. Prune pudding – This infamous dessert gained popularity when former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt convinced the President to serve it to the White House’s guests. Roosevelt’s White House ate modestly in “an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering,” according to Jane Ziegelman, the co-author of A Square Meal, in an interview with The New York Times.
  3. Mulligan stew – This is among the many stews that homeless people made during this time. The recipe had many versions as a result of tossing in the pot anything that the maker could find. Some people used scavenged or stolen onions, potatoes, corn, and all sorts of mixed vegetables. Did you know that this stew even occasionally contained a bit of lint and Bull Durham tobacco to flavor the broth?
  4. Dandelion salad – The dandelion was considered a pesky weed by gardeners, but this plant was a favorite during the Great Depression era. People would add dandelions with other greens found from any neighborhood, seasoning it with pepper, salt and vinegar if available.
  5. Peanut butter stuffed onions – This recipe combined onions and peanut butter; onions were baked and scoops of peanut butter were filled inside them, one of the most bizarre meals to have been made during the Great Depression.
  6. Vinegar cobbler – This dessert replaced fruits with vinegar, and added sugar, water, butter, nutmeg, flour, and vanilla on the baking pan. Apple cider vinegar was used to substitute real apples.
  7. Spaghetti with boiled carrots and white sauce – This is another one of the dishes that Eleanor Roosevelt introduced during the Great Depression. It was spaghetti cooked until mushy and mixed with boiled carrots. The white sauce was made from milk, flour, salt, butter or margarine, and a little bit of pepper. After mixing, pour into a tray and bake to make a casserole.
  8. Potato pancakes – Potatoes are widely available and are among the most affordable food items. During the Great Depression, people used potatoes to replace different ingredients. One of the commonly cooked dishes was a potato pancake, wherein grated potatoes were fried or cooked in a pan.
  9. Meatless loaves – Real meatloaves were scarce during the Depression era, which gave way to meatless loaves made using any item that was available, such as raisins and peanuts.
  10. Milkorno – It is a blend of cornmeal, powdered skim milk, and salt.  Upon boiling, all ingredients of Milkorno become a part of a porridge.

Today, these foods are considered some of the most abhorrent concoctions ever made. But back in the days of the great famine, these bizarre food combinations helped put food in people’s stomachs as they struggled to survive the Great Depression.

Wind Energy Fraud: War On The High Plains

In this exclusive report, Infowars reporter Millie Weaver exposes the explicit fraud, deception, and outright criminality behind wind energy and how it may be used to run rural communities off their properties as part of a major land grab effort in concert with Agenda 21. Millie Weaver starts off asking people who live and work in Kansas City, KS what they know about green energy and industrial wind farms. Not surprising, city people virtue signal their liberal support for industrial wind energy dogmatizing it as a viable solution to the alleged problem of “climate change” without much thought. However, when asked how much energy wind farms produce, what they know about impacts on birds, bats, the environment and human health, most city people appear to be clueless. Weaver then goes to a small town where a local florist has noticed a significant increase in funerals for people who live outside town in close proximity to the wind farm. Weaver then journeys to El Paso County Colorado giving us an insiders view of the fraudulent and deceptive nature of big wind energy corporations by attending and speaking at a local County Commissioner’s hearing regarding health concerns about a local wind farm. Rural people who have been impacted by the wind farm speak out about having to abandon their homes and health effects they have experienced in a plea for help. World renowned acoustician Robert Rand presents prima facia evidence that the wind farm is in perpetual violation of state noise nuisance laws. He presents data which shows the wind farm is operating at noise levels know to cause sleep deprivation, stress, and other health impacts reported by those living in close proximity to it. Millie Weaver discusses medical opinions of doctors who examined data collected as part of a scientific medical study which investigated the serious health impacts of residents living near the wind farm. At the hearing, a wind energy advocate “Dr”, who has been giving medical opinions and medical advice in support of the wind energy project while downplaying people’s health concerns, is exposed as not being an actual “doctor”, rather, being nothing more than a person with a “PhD” in Philosophy. County Commissioners and State legislators now wrestle with the legal conundrum of needing to enforce the law to protect the health and well being of rural residents, to prevent lawlessness and the appearance of giving unequal protection under the law, while facing threats from wind energy tycoons of billion dollar lawsuits if the wind farm is shut down. After the hearing, Weaver takes us within the wind farm footprint only to find that the wind turbines have temporarily been turned off. She interviews several residents neighboring the wind farm who discuss the health impacts they and others have experienced since the wind farm began operation in late 2015. People complain about not only getting sick from the wind turbines, such as regular headaches, nausea, and dizziness, but that they’ve had to get rid of their cattle, that their chickens have stopped laying eggs, and that many of their animals have died. We also learn that some people having been having seizures and cardiovascular problems. Many people have left the area and many others discuss being in the process of selling or abandoning their properties just to get away from the wind farm. Finally, Weaver interviews Larry Mott of GES Tech Group, Inc, an engineer who has closely monitored the wind farm. HE explains how industrial wind turbines are extremely inefficient at producing usable energy and that they are only good at producing bogus carbon credits. He discusses the corruption that allowed the wind farm to be constructed despite massive public outcry by residents who are now forced to live near it. He also discusses how billions-of-dollars in government subsidies are the only real source of profit from wind energy and exposes how wind energy is a major tax fraud Ponzi scheme. As a bonus, Weaver interviews Lord Christopher Monckton who delves into the serious harm wind farms have on large raptors, rare birds, and the uphill battle Donald Trump has faced fighting wind energy.
