Facebook Works For NATO

Facebook Announces Partnership With Atlantic Council to 'Protect Democracy' Bryan MacDonald

What better way to protect democracy than to have Amerika do it? Facebook has engaged a think tank funded by weapons manufacturers, branches of the US military and Middle-Eastern monarchies to safeguard the democratic process. It's akin to hiring arsonists to run the fire brigade.

If Facebook truly wanted to "protect democracy and elections worldwide," it would build a broad coalition of experts and activists from a wide and disparate range of the countries it serves. Instead, the American social media giant has outsourced the task to NATO's propaganda wing.

For the uninitiated, the Atlantic Council serves as the American-led alliance's chief advocacy group. And its methods are rather simple: it grants stipends and faux academic titles to various activists that align with NATO's agenda. Thus, lobbyists become "fellows" and &qu…

Insects face calamitous habitat loss

Insects face calamitous habitat loss

Unless nations act fast, habitat loss could rob half of all insects of over half their habitat. Other creatures, too, could suffer in a 3°C warmer world.
By Tim Radford

LONDON, 21 May, 2018
 – Habitat loss may soon mean half the world’s insects, and many plants and animals as well, could find themselves without their familiar home ranges. Right now, climate scientists warn, global planetary temperatures are on course to rise 3.2°C above the average for most of human history. They have already risen by about 1°C in the last 100 years. And if they do, then 49% of insects, 44% of plants and 26% of vertebrates could lose more than half of their ranges. If the 195 nations that agreed in Paris in 2015 to take steps to restrict global warming to a target of 1.5°C keep their pledges, only 6% of insects, 8% of plants and 4% of vertebrates will experience severe reductions in their ranges. Even half a degree makes a huge difference. ”We could literally move the w…

Leaving US Sidelined

Russia, Europe and China Discuss New Iran Nuclear Deal, Leaving US SidelinedMay 20, 2018 at 10:22 pm Written by  Share Tweet (ANTIWAR.COM)— While previous reports have indicated that there was little interest in talking about a new nuclear deal with Iran, the withdrawal of the US from the existing deal appears to have changed things. Now, Russia, China, and the European Union are to hold talks on a major revision of the deal later this week. This new deal would keep Iran’s requirements the same as the existing deal, but would increase the incentives guaranteed by the other powers. This is an attempt to keep Iran complying with the deal as the US ratchets up sanctions. While the US was the one pushing for a “new” deal in the first place, the other nations have kept the US completely sidelined in these new talks. This is unsurprising, as many see the US trying to undermine any such deals. The new deal is said to offer Iran billions of dollars in financial aid to make up for the …
