AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Cross state pollution from ozone & particles cause premature deaths of children in the Northeast. The largest concentration of pollutants comes from the Northern Plains & Upper Midwest . Prevailing winds carry the pollution East. Just like in the dust bowl, the Black clouds swept across America. It’s another problem to concern us, if we want a healthier happier life! States with the largest polluters have the least # of deaths, since winds travels East.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Think Trump, think pollution,pollutants & the end of Conservation as our Federal lands are leased cheaply to the Fossil Fuel industry. Pristine landscapes that capture our enthusiasm for the outdoors, destined for mining & not the recreation we all crave and enjoy. What happened to our equal rights & opportunity for happiness?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Fossil Fuels are in trouble, if we want to maintain 1.5 degrees C, 80% will stay in the ground. Black Rock and 200+ Investment Managers are intending to divest from Major Fossil Fuel Cos. Conservative Politicas is at odds with reality, but there is a solution, maintain some Subsidies and Segway to Renewables. People will be fighting over clean water, if we don’t curb Carbon Emissions.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Forests are not a barrier to fires when a region becomes warmer. Australia had forests and bragged about their capacity to mine & export Fossil Fuels. We can’t have it both ways. Production & extraction of oil & gas causes fires. Australia lost 24 million acres to fire. In America our Coasts from Maine through the gulf states are eroding, too. We need to plan for renewables

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce This is the most important issue of our time & preparedness is everything. Being held captive to anger & resentments against others prevents us from moving forward. Tackling our environment, will create new jobs, keep us healthy, prevent pollution from toxic substances & deaths of despair. We can start as soon as we’re no longer part of Trumps chaotic unstructured worldview. And as soon as we stop pursuing short term profits for a few! Renewables will take us to the 22 Nd Century

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Powerful Coal & mining Lobbyists dictate Conservative policy in Australia. 12 million acres burned, farmlands included, people died and there is no end to summer season . The weather brings on more intense heat , fires & fire tornadoes. No rain. What happens in Australia doesn’t stay there, the People in New Zealand can’t breathe the pollutants either! How much land mass & lives must be lost before we change policies?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Arctic Sea ice melting at an alarming rate putting indigenous people at survival risk and threatening our coast lines and dependence on fish. It’s past time to take the effects of a warmer planet seriously. The lack of biodiversity will change food patterns and particles in our air will take a severe toll on human health.
