AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The effects of the Climate Crisis now on Agriculture. As the planetary weather changes, we’re losing our ability to grow coffee, chiles, mustard, wine, grains, wheat, corn, and chocolate . The Western World will adapt to a bland diet & we’ll learn to engineer our food. However, the growers of crops will be destitute , suffering from erratic drought s and weather extremes. The farmers globally, especially in poorer Nations like Brazil and West Africa , they’ll go hungry. Western Nations may have insurance protection & the prices for food will continue to increase. There are remedies: solar panels over crops to shield them from the Sun. We can’t save Apples from an early frost. We can stop the War in Ukraine, this is unnecessarily increasing our Global dependence on dirty fossil fuels and creating a devastating heat feedback loop. Are we capable of saving ourselves? Can man stop his ambitions for conquest? If not, give Ukrainians the overwhelming firepower they need and end Putin’s War quickly. The World can not afford a War that exacerbates climate change!

Otherwise, Corporations belong to no Nation and are sovereign powers working for themselves. Like Exxon claiming they’re not a US Corporations & the follow policy beneficial to the US! Why give them subsidies? The American people need better wages and relief from Corporate Greed

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce When LA goes to the polls, Social Justice & Environmental goals are primary. To reduce pollution and toxicity in the air around the Ports & refineries are important for the health and well being of the California population. And they have the homeless people. Urban problems, many solvable by an incentive to go mass transit rather than auto usage. The Homeless?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Are these GOP Governors crazy? They stand against a Woman’s Right to Reproductive Healthcare, against sensible Gun Safety Laws (Red Flag Laws, Background Checks, Assault Weapons Ban), against Expanded Medicaid, against a National Voting Rights Bill, against the For the Families Act and now they’re. against Businesses that are responsible stewards of the Environment and care about their employees well being? They don’t stand for or with us anymore! Since most State Legislators work a maximum of 6 months, why give them power over your life choices? #Vote them out! In 2022,Your Vote Counts!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Britain’s rise in inequality and poverty took 10+ years. We started the trend in the 1980’s. They recognize the poor & middle class are suffering, do we? We’ve taken away the peoples safety net and never replaced it. From Student Loans, to child care, to transportation, to WiFi, to food insecurity, we’ve created a two tier society with stressed out traumatized adults and children. When do we reinstate our Social Safety Net? The For the Families Act? Where’s the debate ?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce: Dare we hope there will be action taken to silence social media platforms promoting chat rooms, for White Supremacists strategies promoting violence? Terrorism & Terrorists should be denied access to Social Media and their groups prosecuted for inciting violence! 22 people witnessed the murder of innocent Americans and millions saw this horrific crime on all Social Media platforms. There can be standards for Social Media Platforms;Regulations. The EU is implementing them now!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Boycott Wendy’s till they comply with the Fair Food Program ensuring pay and benefits to farm workers in their supply chains. Slavery was banned after the Civil War, yet it continues in our food supply chains and Federal Prisons. No one can compete with Labor that costs nothing. This treatment of workers is inhumane and the major Shareholder and all involved in Wendy’s supply chain should be sued for back wages. Where is an enterprising Attorney, when needed?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce California adding $50 to every first graders bank account. Encouraging savings, produces the desire to enter College and achieve. It’s true, I remember as a kid being told I would attend College. I looked forward to higher education and it’s been proven, savings accounts are a first step out of poverty.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce What are we doing? Reviving coal mines for Bitcoin mining and use? Why? If they change their coding system, Bitcoin energy usage will decrease, its predicted 99%. Why harm our Planet and the US for currency? Aren’t our lives worth somet better. We haven’t discussed Climate Crisis with Ukrainians in the news. Our World is suffering from warming and we too could suffer from food insecurity if we don’t mitigate Climate Change and Covid. If the poor have no food , and they’re infected with Covid, who will work our Supply Chains? There are dire consequences for increasing the use of Fossil Fuels in America.
