(Natural News) Bucket gardening is popular among urban preppers because it allows you to grow assorted herbs and vegetables even if you live in a small apartment. Also known as container gardening, this method is a great way to start your own garden if you’re a beginner who doesn’t want to feel overwhelmed with a full-sized backyard garden. (h/t to UrbanSurvivalSite.com)

Why bucket gardening is perfect for urban preppers

As an urban prepper, you need to be more creative with your preps, especially if you don’t have a lot of storage space. With bucket gardening, you can maximize every inch of space in your home or apartment by growing plants in small to medium-sized containers.

If you live in the suburbs or out in the country, bucket gardening also offers other benefits, such as being portable. If you’re worried about not being able to look after your crops after SHTF, simply move the buckets closer to your house.

Bucket gardening is also affordable. If you don’t want to spend money on buckets and assorted containers for your garden, you can upcycle common household items or look for containers in flea markets.

What to grow in your bucket garden

You can grow different plants in a bucket garden, but some crops are better suited to container gardening. Below are some plants that you can easily grow in a bucket at home

  1. Beets
  2. Broccoli
  3. Cabbage
  4. Carrots
  5. Cauliflower
  6. Collard Greens
  7. Dwarf Banana
  8. Dwarf Orange
  9. Eggplant
  10. Garlic
  11. Kale
  12. Lettuce
  13. Mustard Greens
  14. Okra
  15. Onions
  16. Peas
  17. Peppers
  18. Potatoes
  19. Radishes
  20. Rice
  21. Strawberries
  22. Sweet corn
  23. Swiss chard
  24. Tomatoes

Containers to use in your bucket garden

Drill or poke holes in the bottom of all growing containers for proper water drainage. Add an inch of gravel at the bottom of your bucket or chosen container to improve drainage.

Ideally, you should use sturdy five-gallon buckets to grow your crops. But if you don’t have access to buckets, you can use other containers such as:

  • Old laundry baskets
  • Large tin cans
  • Plastic 55-gallon drums
  • Plastic food tubs
  • Plastic pots
  • Plastic storage tubs
  • Terra cotta pots
  • Toy bins
  • Trash cans (Drill holes on the sides for small plants to grow out of.)
  • Troughs
  • Wooden barrels

If you want to use a container that’s not included in the list above, feel free to do so as long as it has good drainage and it is big enough for the plant you wish to grow.

Things to consider before you start container gardening

Before you buy seeds and assorted containers for your garden, sit down and determine how you’re going to use your harvest. Are you going to plant enough for one person or a whole family? Do you want to have enough veggies left so you can preserve food for when SHTF? How much space can you use for your container garden?

Once you answer these questions, you can figure out how much space you should take up and how to proceed with your bucket garden. (Related: Remain self-sufficient during the coronavirus pandemic by growing vegetables in buckets.)

Preserving your harvest

Even with a bucket garden, you can have enough left over to preserve in your survival stockpile. You don’t need to purchase expensive equipment if you want to preserve food. You can set up your own solar dehydrator and use sunshine to dry the herbs or vegetables.

If you don’t mind spending money on useful equipment, you can purchase an electric dehydrator that you can use for herbs, fruits and vegetables. Alternatively, you can preserve food using either pressure canning or water bath canning. A residential grade dehydrator costs about $75 to $150 while the home canning equipment needed to use both the water bath and pressure method of preserving food costs around $200.

If you plan to store preserved food in Mason jars or vacuum-sealed bags, don’t store more than one meal’s worth of food in them. If you open a storage container more than once, the food inside gets continually exposed to moisture, which reduces its longevity.

By starting a bucket garden, you can grow food even in a small space and provide your family with fresh and nutritious herbs and vegetables after SHTF.

Eco Liberty Conclusion: Container gardening the way to go it you live in apartment or flats that you don’t have land to dig up for a garden. Or when you do have land but you’re renting and the Landlord will not let the dig up the ground for garden; container gardening will be the only option that will not upset the Landlord. Or you just want to grow plants in containers in general.

All COVID-19 vaccines to be made with aborted human fetal cells

(Natural News) If you or someone you know is anxiously waiting for a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine to hit the market, just know that all of the top contenders are being formulated with ingredients made from aborted human fetal cells.

While the vaccines themselves will likely not contain any actual aborted fetal tissue, the additives they contain come from cell lines harvested from human babies that were murdered while still in the womb.

Christians and other religious people who value human life will probably want to think twice before getting these jabs, in other words, especially if they are to remain consistent in supporting the dignity of the unborn.

The nonprofit group Liberty Counsel is currently in the process of raising awareness about the use of aborted human fetal tissue in vaccine production, specifically as it relates to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

“As an American citizen who loves my country, my Constitution, and my right to refuse forced vaccinations, I urge you to end all consideration of mandatory vaccinations,” the Liberty Counsel campaign against forced vaccinations states.

Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, discusses the claim of a contact tracing whistleblower who says that door-to-door forced vaccinations and FEMA kidnapping campaigns are soon on the way:

https://www.brighteon.com/14dfe692-fc63-498a-ab4d-a33fc83450db

COVID-19 vaccines are being developed faster than expected – are you prepared to resist?

Operation Warp Speed (OWS), the program unveiled by President Trump to rush a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine to market as quickly as possible, is reportedly moving along much faster than expected with a jab set to be ready before year’s end.

“What I thought was an aspirational goal 30 days ago when I was announced by the president, I have recently come to the conclusion that it is more and more likely to occur,” stated U.S. Army General Gus Perna, a top OWS official who is overseeing the rushed vaccine program.

If all goes according to plan – and it appears to be going better than planned, the Department of Defense and the Department of Health and Human Services will have 300 million Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines ready for distribution by January 1, 2021.

The companies leading the way in making this happen include Johnson & Johnson, which has been sued more times than we can count for various drug conspiracies, along with Moderna and AstraZeneca.

Trials are already in motion on these vaccines with more to begin soon. Meanwhile, Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver is sounding the alarm about the horrors they contain, not the least of which are the toxic additives manufactured from aborted baby fetal tissue.

Of particular concern are continued efforts in states across America to eliminate exemptions to vaccination, which will make it that much more difficult for people who oppose being forcibly injected to sidestep any future mandates.

“Big Pharma reportedly constitutes approximately one-sixth of the U.S. economy,” Staver warns, noting that mandatory vaccinations are a massive cash cow for the pharmaceutical industry.

“Additionally, the pharmaceutical industry spends more money on lobbying at both the state and federal levels than any other sector of the U.S. economy. In 2019, for example, Big Pharma spent a massive $295 million on federal lobbying – more than double the nearest runner-up, electronics manufacturing.”

By using aborted baby fetal tissue, drug companies can produce vaccines even cheaper than normal, allowing them to rake in windfall profits.

“And what better opportunity to make those profits skyrocket than to demand mass vaccination of the entire population … even though COVID-19 is now known to have just a 0.26 percent death rate, roughly the same as the average annual flu,” he adds.

VIDEO: NURSE EXPOSES CORONAVIRUS FACE MASKS USING COMMON SENSE

infowars.com
18 May 2020

‘You’re doing your body a disservice’

Registered Nurse Danika Bueno recently uploaded a YouTube video explaining why wearing a face mask for long periods can be harmful to the body.

Bueno begins the video by detailing how patients with respiratory alkalosis are instructed to breathe into a paper bag in order to fix the bloodstream’s PH balance.

Breathing into a paper bag is close to the same thing as wearing a face mask in that it alters the wearer’s PH balance.

Bueno also notes that most masks people are wearing are highly ineffective against viruses.

In fact, she claims those who wear masks frequently are making themselves more prone to infection by making their bodies acidotic and by touching their faces more often than those who don’t wear masks.

Biosludge spread on food crops will soon contain dead human tissue as Washington legalizes “human composting”

(Natural News) The state of Washington is the first in the union to start “composting” dead human bodies as crop “fertilizer,” bringing to real life the fictitious scenario depicted in the famous dystopian film Soylent Green.

According to reports, Washington’s Senate and House of Representatives approved with strong bipartisan majorities Bill 5001, entitled, “Concerning human remains,” which was signed into law by Governor Jay Insleelegalizing the “natural organic reduction” of human remains.

Bill 5001 will take effect on May 1, 2020, allowing for human corpses to undergo a process known as “liquid cremation,” whereby alkaline hydrolysis is used to turn rotting flesh and bones into an “organic fertilizer” sludge.

“I am very much in favor of the composting of human bodies!” declared Wes McMahan, a retired cardiovascular intensive-care nurse who recently testified in support of the bill.

“When I’m done with this body that served me very well for the past 64 years, do I want to poison it with formaldehyde and other embalming chemicals? No,” he added. “Burned? Not my first choice. But what about all the bacteria I’ve worked with so long in this body – do I want to give them a chance to do what they do naturally? I believe in doing things as naturally as possible.”

Katrina Spade, the founder and CEO of a company known as Recompose that aspires to be the first “natural organic reduction” funeral home in the United States, is also excited about the bill, which she says fulfills “a longtime hope” of hers to create “an urban, soil-based, ecologically friendly death-care option.”

“Frankly, I’m a little overwhelmed,” she’s quoted as saying by The Seattle Times. “It’s real now.”

Pharmaceutical drugs and other toxic chemicals are sure to be released from “liquid cremation” into America’s growing soils

Many other supporters of the bill claim that legalizing human composting will be great for the environment, as it’s supposedly “as close to the natural process of decomposition [as] you’d assume a body would undergo before we had an industrialized society.”

But is it really a good idea to spread liquid sludge made from dead humans all over our food crops? Because that’s exactly where much of it will go, especially when “liquid cremation” ends up being flushed down the drain or toilet and into the local sewer system.

As revealed in the Biosludged film, wastewater all across the country is now being “recycled” and spread all over farmland, which means whatever’s in it is being absorbed into the food supply.

If America now begins “recycling” human beings as liquid rather than simply burying bodies or cremating them into ash, as has traditionally been the case, then these remains will almost certainly end up being converted into recycled “biosludge” and spread as “fertilizer” on food crops.

We already know that this is part of the plan, as folks like McMahan are actually excited about the prospect of creating “food forests” with human compost – “so my grandchildren will know where food comes from,” he contends.

It’s true that traditional burial protocols aren’t necessarily environmentally-friendly, seeing as how embalming fluids and formaldehyde are made from toxic, synthetic chemicals. But human bodies, especially in today’s toxic world, are also poisonous, and loaded with all sorts of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other poisons that probably shouldn’t be “repurposed” to help grow the foods we all eat.

“Releasing mercury, pharmaceuticals, and disease into the water supply. Sounds like a great idea, what could possibly go wrong?” joked one commenter at The Seattle Times.

“Think of all the additional drugs that we give our bodies that will be in the compost,” wrote another.

Be sure to check out Biosludge.news to learn more about how human waste, and now the remains of dead human beings, is tainting the already highly-contaminated American food supply.

Brighteon: Climate change SCARE stories now a form of psychological TERRORISM

DHS says that Americans need to be prepared for a power outage of up to 6 months

naturalnews.com
1 July 2019
Melissa Smith



(Natural News) The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) urged the public to be prepared for a power outage that may last up to six months. In a report from the agency’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council, it warned that a sudden attack would likely occur and could cause chaos for at least half a year as the electric grid is now the prime target of terrorists.

“Long-duration, lasting several weeks to months (at least 2 months, but more likely 6 months or more) due to physical destruction to equipment, such as transformers or transmission lines; or the severity of the event resulting in limited workforce to repair damage, or inability to create or transport replacement parts,” said the report.

The advisory council urged Americans to prepare by having enough supplies on hand for at least 14 days. But this number appears to be grossly inadequate, considering the threat and the timeline for reestablishing essential services after an attack. (Related: Do you know what to do during a power outage? Here are 5 essential things you need.)

This isn’t the first warning about a threat to the U.S. electric grid from terrorism. In an earlier report by the Air Force’s Air University, the military warned that an EMP-style attack could wipe out the country, democracy, and the world order. The report also said that it would take at least 18 months to replace key elements of the electric grid that would be damaged or knocked out.

Things you need to do to prepare for an attack

To survive an attack, you need to be prepared to survive for an extended period without electricity, food and water, and essential services.

  • Have your own water supply – Water systems rely heavily on electricity to operate, and a power outage means that you will lose access to water. Therefore, you need to start storing your own water. You can start by storing cases of water bottles around for emergencies. Remember to rotate your water storage as water can go stale after a long period. You will need to have at least one gallon of water per person per day. This will be used for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning.
  • Stock up on food – Food and water are essential for survival, and these two will likely be scarce during a long-term power outage. Start stocking extra of what you usually eat, focusing on dry goods.
  • Have cash on hand – Your debit and credit cards are going to be useless during any type of grid-down situation, so it’s best to have cash on hand. You will need money to buy last-minute supplies and to deal with the first stages of the disaster.
  • Stock up on firearms – When SHTF, the unprepared masses may become unpredictable and threaten to your life. At this point, security is a top priority. You should be taking measures to protect yourself and your family, so stock up on firearms and learn how to use them in case of emergencies.
  • Prepare a backup power source – You may want to consider investing in solar chargers, power generators, and portable battery backups in case of emergencies. Make sure to have backup power to run things like emergency radios, flashlights, and other emergency gears.
  • First aid kit – Rescue may not be as quick as usual if the grid goes down, so its best to have your own first aid kit at home, in your car, and in your office. Prepare whatever you need or might need to take care of yourself and your family. You may also want to consider getting CPR training and basic first aid before you need it.

Scientists say eating eggs for breakfast helps boost brain function

naturalnews.com
13 March 2019 Amy Goodrich


(Natural News) Many people see eggs as the villains of the grocery cooler. One moment nutritionists are touting them for their health benefits, and the next they’re saying they’re bad for us. This controversy comes from the general belief that eggs raise cholesterol which may lead to a heart disease.

Previous research has linked regular egg consumption to heart attacks, high blood pressure, and weight gain. Conditions that cause damage to the heart, arteries, or blood circulation are also known to increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

According to the American Heart Association, healthy adults should not consume more than 300 milligrams of cholesterol a day. One large egg has around 186 milligrams of cholesterol and a small egg around 141 milligrams. A new study from the University of Eastern Finland now shows that a relatively high intake of dietary cholesterol is not associated with a heightened risk of coronary heart disease — the world’s number one killer.

Many people believe eggs increase the risk of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The Finnish researchers, however, discovered that eating eggs on a daily basis may help boost brain functions.

Better brain performance

For their study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the scientists analyzed the diets of nearly 2,500 men aged between 42 and 60 over a period of 22 years. At the start of the analysis, none of the participants were diagnosed with a memory disorder such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Of the 2,500 men, 337 developed a neurological condition at some point – with the majority suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. The authors of the study found that neither cholesterol nor egg intake was linked to a higher risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Despite the general belief that dietary cholesterol has a modest impact on blood cholesterol levels, Professor Jyrki Virtanen, adjunct professor in nutritional epidemiology at the University of Eastern Finland Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition in Kuopio, said cholesterol and egg intake have not been associated with higher risk of heart disease.

He also added that it is assumed that dietary cholesterol has a greater impact on blood cholesterol levels among carriers of the APOE4 gene. However, Virtanen and his colleagues reported that even carriers of the APOE4 gene don’t seem to have anything to fear when it comes to eating eggs or any other form of dietary cholesterol.

Furthermore, the data also showed that regular consumption of eggs does not increase the risk of a memory disorder, not even in individuals who are predisposed. On the contrary, the researchers found that egg intake improved performance on neuropsychological tests of the frontal lobe and executive functioning.

The study was funded by the University of Eastern Finland, and Virtanen added that there was no funding from the egg industry.

Have no fear

While eggs have gained a bad reputation over the recent years, they are making their comeback to the health food aisle. As reported by the Daily Mail Online, one large egg packs around six grams of high-quality protein and decent levels of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin as well as vitamins E, D, and A.

While lutein may help prevent clogged arteries, vitamin E has been shown to reduce the risk of future heart attacks in people with an existing cardiovascular disease. Previously, U.S. scientists reported that there is no clear link between egg consumption and coronary heart disease. Also, recently published research found consuming just one egg a day may reduce the risk of stroke by 12 percent.

TECHNO-DICTATORSHIP: Apple bans Natural News for publishing true climate science stories that Apple claims are “rejected by the scientific community”

naturalnews.com
13 May 2019
Mike Adam

(Natural News) As part of the accelerating techno-dictatorship sweeping across the online world, Apple News has banned Natural News for expressing views which Apple claims are “rejected by the scientific community.”

This ban was received shortly after Natural News published a rebuttal to the junk science climate change narrative which falsely claims that carbon dioxide is a poison that will destroy the planet. (Only someone who is scientifically illiterate or completely brainwashed could believe such a falsehood.)

Natural News dares to state the simple scientific fact — now confirmed by NASA — that carbon dioxide boosts the growth of green plants all across the Earth. This is not allowed by the techno-fascists of the Left who run Apple and insist that CO2 is somehow a poison that’s responsible for “climate change.”

Here’s the world map showing the increase in reforestation and greening, as cited by NASA and published the journal Nature: Climate Change:

Note that this image shows an increase in “greening” across every continent, which NASA confirms is due to rising carbon dioxide, a fertilizer for plants.

Apple censors disagree with scientific reality and ban anyone who speaks the truth

Even though NASA has also admitted that CO2 is greening the Earth, Apple says that Natural News stories are diverging from the “scientific community,” somehow justifying Apple’s censorship of all news from Natural News, including the hundreds of articles each month that cite scientific journals.

Natural News is the internet’s most prolific publisher of science-based news covering phytonutrients, herbal medicine, nutritional therapies, holistic health therapies and the health dangers associated with vaccines, pharmaceuticals and toxic chemotherapy treatments. Apple — which of course panders to Big Pharma, Monsanto, Bayer and the vaccine industry — has now decided that any news stories which diverge from the “official narrative” must be silenced.

This is a dangerous precedent that will stifle the very process of scientific discovery which depends on the process of considering dissenting views. With no dissenting views allowed, science can never move forward. This is Apple’s new demand: that humanity stay stuck forever in whatever myths, deceptions and misconceptions “science” believed in 2019 (and there are many).

Regardless of whether an individual agrees or disagrees with Natural News content, Apple has now decided that no one is even allowed to read or view that content. In essence, Apple is now functioning as the Ministry of Truth, deciding which science-based news stories fit the accepted “consensus” narrative versus those that diverge from establishment views. In essence, Apple has declared it will enforce a scientific dictatorship which disallows all news stories, videos or views which challenge the scientific establishment.

Here’s the email that Apple News sent to Natural News:

The history of science is full of examples of wrong ideas which were corrected by divergent views from pioneering thinkers

Any intelligent, informed student of the history of science might ask the obvious question: How can science be “self-correcting” if no opposing views are allowed to be seen? The history of science is full of examples of scientists being wrong about not just small things, but really big things, too.

For example, it was once the “scientific consensus” that volcanoes were caused by angry gods. Or that the Earth was flat. It wasn’t long ago that scientists claimed thalidomide was safe for pregnant women.

Even now, the “consensus” science view that claims carbon dioxide is a “pollutant” that’s destroying the planet stands in complete contradiction of the laws of plant physiology (botany) and photosynthesis. At the same time, the bizarre new left-wing “science” that claims women and men are biologically identical and that children are born “genderless,” then “assigned” a gender at birth by the doctor is of course completely insane and contradicts biological reality.

From: https://grrrgraphics.com/settled-science/

If Apple were in charge of the world in the 16th century, no one would have ever been allowed to claim the Earth wasn’t the center of the universe, or that space was (nearly) a vacuum. The progress of all human knowledge would have been put on hold, “frozen” in the Era of Ignorance, enforced by Apple.

Of course, we are still living in a new era of ignorance, and Apple has declared that no new knowledge will be allowed to be published, shared or viewed by anyone. Yet Apple gladly publishes news from sources that claim ludicrous, impossible things like claiming that men can get pregnant and give birth — that’s the new “transgender” science quackery being routinely pushed by the left-wing cult that has overtaken modern society.

Think about it: Apple insists that “transgenderism” is real, but biology, atmospheric chemistry and botany are all declare “fake” by Apple’s left-wing censors.

We have truly entered the realm of insanity, where lies are pushed as truth, and truth is labeled treason.

Stop letting Apple control your news feed If you are still getting news fed to you by Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter or any other source that’s run by left-wing lunatics, you are being brainwashed and indoctrinated by a dangerous cult that stands in completely opposition to reality and reason. Stop reading Apple News and get off iPhones. Here are some far better news sources to check out instead:

NASA declares carbon dioxide is GREENING the Earth… reveals how Green New Death is a DEATH cult that would collapse global ecology

naturalnews.com
Mike Adams
26 April 2019



(Natural News) In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted by NASA reveals that rising carbon dioxide levels are having a tremendously positive impact on the re-greening of planet Earth over the last three decades, with some regions experiencing over a 50% increase in plant life.

The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, this study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains:

We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend…

In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists. The more CO2 we release into the atmosphere, the more nutrients are available for plants, and the more rapidly the Earth is re-greened.

The following compilation map shows which land masses have experienced expanded greening since 1982. As the legend explains, the light green areas represent a 25% increase in green plants, and the dark green areas represent a 50% or greater increase:

Image credit: Boston University / R. Myeneni

Natural News readers may note this is exactly what we’ve been reporting for over a decade. It’s basic science, of course, since plants use carbon dioxide to thrive. Higher CO2 means a greener Earth, since CO2 is the single most important molecule for sustaining plant life across the globe. It is beyond astonishing that the entire climate change cult denies the basic science of botany and photosynthesis.

Read my 2017 article which covers all this: All the biggest lies about climate change and global warming DEBUNKED in one astonishing interview.

For the link the video Why Carbon Dioxide is the “Miracle Molecule of Life” for GREENING our planet

NASA confirms the findings and even publishes a video touting the increase in global greening due to rising CO2

To the shock of many climate change alarmists, even NASA scientists confirmed that carbon dioxide is “greening” the planet. As stated on the NASA.gov website in an article titled, “Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds“:

From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.

An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.

NASA explains almost exactly what I’ve been explaining for the last several years: That carbon dioxide is a necessary component of photosynthesis, the biochemical process by which plants produce metabolic energy. Via NASA:

Green leaves use energy from sunlight through photosynthesis to chemically combine carbon dioxide drawn in from the air with water and nutrients tapped from the ground to produce sugars, which are the main source of food, fiber and fuel for life on Earth. Studies have shown that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide increase photosynthesis, spurring plant growth.

Results showed that carbon dioxide fertilization explains 70 percent of the greening effect, said co-author Ranga Myneni, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University.

NASA even released a YouTube video that almost exactly mirrors the message Natural News has been advocating for years. The video is entitled, “Rising CO2 levels greening Earth”:

Why the Green New Deal would KILL the greening of the Earth

In direct contradiction to the real science on the greening benefits of carbon dioxide, Democrats routinely and mindlessly claim that carbon dioxide is a poisonous “pollutant” that will destroy the world. The anti-knowledge of lunatic Democrats demonstrates the extreme dangers of those who are scientifically illiterate yet spout “science” as their justification for demanding radical interventions in atmospheric chemistry.

In truth, rising levels of carbon dioxide will cause the following beneficial effects on Earth:

  • Reforestation due to Earth moving toward a warmer, wetter, more greenhouse-like environment
  • Acceleration of food production among food crops
  • An increase in the biodiversity of rainforests
  • Increased rainfall across Earth’s continents
  • The transformation of deserts into usable plains for grazing and agriculture
  • The acceleration of the greening of the planet, which is already far greener than it was 50 years ago

There are virtually no Democrats who recognize that carbon dioxide is the “miracle molecule” for plant life. “Green New Deal” proponents like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who is scientifically and economically illiterate — think that carbon dioxide must be eliminated in order to save the planet. In fact, she warns that Earth only has 12 years to go before all life ceases to exist unless humans stop burning fossil fuels.

Not surprisingly, she has it all wrong: It’s the burning of fossil fuels that’s releasing beneficial CO2 into the atmosphere, causing the global greening that NASA has already confirmed (see above). If humans stop burning fossil fuels, the result would decrease atmospheric CO2, resulting in plants starving to death from lack of CO2.

This would, of course, lead to the mass global die-off of trees, grasslands, food crops and rainforests. The “Green New Deal,” in other words, would actually result in the mass killing of plant life across the entire planet. If the world were to follow the demands of Ocasio-Cortez, the world’s ecosystems would collapse, resulting in mass death of plants, animals and humans.

The Green New Deal is a “Death Cult”

It turns out that climate change alarmists, by vilifying CO2, are demanding actions that would make the planet less green by killing plants everywhere. Instead of a warm, wet planet with abundant rainfall and rainforests, Democrat seem to want a cold, dead world that’s devoid of plant life.

As any competent scientist would openly admit, the elimination of CO2 from the atmosphere would collapse the global ecosystem, leading to the complete wipe out of nearly all plants, animals and humans. Those who are calling for the elimination of CO2 are, as I have previously warned, actually advocating the terraforming of planet Earth into a post-human, post-life status that would collapse human civilization and annihilate nearly all food webs around the world.

As reported by Natural News, AOC’s “Green New Deal” seeks to eliminate the very molecule that turns planets green: Carbon dioxide, the molecule of life.

People like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are not the saviors of the planet, it turns out: They are the death merchants who threaten to destroy all life as we know it. Carbon dioxide isn’t a threat to planet Earth, but people like Ocasio-Cortez surely are. If anything should be eliminated from the atmosphere, it’s the hot air coming from the mouths of the climate alarmists who are spewing their death cult quackery that would devastate our planet if deployed.

If you really want to “green” the planet, stop the climate change lunatics like Ocasio-Cortez whose proposals would quite literally murder nearly all life on planet Earth.

Simply put:

More carbon dioxide = more green plants

That’s why CO2 is called a “greenhouse gas.” It turns the planet into a lush, plant-filled greenhouse that’s warmer, wetter and more abundant across all plant life. Why don’t Democrats and Leftists want Earth to be more green?
