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!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Want to know the organizations and medication to take in a Post Roe America. This article helps women navigate the System. The next best thing you can do is vote Legislators out of office who have crushed Women’s rights. If they remain in power, other groups will lose their rights too! 2022 is a pivotal election year for basic human rights. Protect them , yourself and others.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As climate crisis are exacerbated expect volatile climate periods , alternating between extremes in rain & snow and the 1200 year drought with little water available for agriculture. When we’re living on the edge of these crises, we’ll need resources to harness and manage the water when supplies are abundant and then parcel them out in the dry years. Our Future is here and we have to plan for our survival!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce End Corporate extortion no subsidies unless American workers get to design and produce chips for the American market. 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 Good Workers Transportation Bill for air line workers specifically, will raise their minimum wage to $15/hr, give them benefits and insurance. All this to help air lines. Why can’t the government lift all wages to $15 min and increase labors participation everywhere?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Amazon’s Bezos pledges to change how Labor is treated or will be responsible for running out of Labor in 2 years. Poor working conditions, cause excessive accidents and burnout in Amazon warehouses, leading to 150% turnover and 6.8 accidents per 100 people. The norm is 3.3 accidents per 100 people. Still high. No wonder today’s workers are distressed in retail. We’re people and not Robots. Perhaps the new generation of Moguls ought to study successful businesses of the past to model new business? People are not machines and need tools to do their jobs. There can be decent working conditions, benefits & safety with productivity! Bring back Sectional Unionization and allow Unions to negotiate for all Retail Labor. Strengthen Labor Laws at the NLRB and enforce existing Law. Add a fair minimum wage Federally.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Communities are stopping the building of gas stations and American cars are going electric. More cities to follow along with the cleanup of these sites. They’re a bio hazard and generally require $250,000+ for clean up of the oil tank leaks underground. Finally, a real reminder, fossil fuels have had their run and we can plan for our future.COP 26, to meet this summer to discuss the sudden loss of bio diversity. #Climate Mitigating approaching!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Last week citizens demonstrated for health benefits and services. At the end of June, the Rail Workers will strike for higher pay & benefits. Like the Court defense barristers intending to strike, assistant make 31,000 pounds. Not enough to live on with rising inflation. Teachers may strike next. Inflation is Global and not sustainable, using high interest rates to curb it can’t be our only tool. The poor and middle Class need equal treatment to Corporations. The poor and middle Class didn’t cause inflation and haven’t benefited over the last decade.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Vanuatu’s youth have formed an NGO to put questions before the International World Court and the UN General Assembly, asking for legally binding Law to curb Climate abuse that harms the righ to survival of the Pacific Islands and marginalized communities. They want a framework of Laws to hold Nations and Corporations accountable for sea level changes and a rise in heat. This new Law would be a model for future litigation to prevent the acceleration of harm to today’s youth and our Climate. Kudos. Litigation though long focuses attention on an issue that must be addressed for our survival.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce After 117 days , there is talk about a long War. I don’t see how that can continue. According to the latest reports, Russia is bombing cities where people have fled, except those who couldn’t. Russia has not captured full cities in Donbas and adding more troops. If and when Zelenskiy gets the Weapons he needs , he’ll be able to strategically deploy them to wipe out the Russian entrenchment. The Southern cities may pose more difficulties. Meanwhile, Yellen is meeting in Canada to discuss Peace initiatives to end this War and Poland and the EU are discussing ways to remove Ukrainian grain out of the Country to avoid famine. This War is detrimental to our Planet as Germany considers using Coal & grain must go to the regions designated to avoid destabilizing Nations and famine. We need a World body to preemptively stop Wars before they begin. Excess fossil fuels is not something the planet can sustain.
