AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The far reaching abortion ban in Republican States, is effecting more then women’s reproductive health. Women taking methotrexate for Rheumatoid Arthritis and other autoimmune diseases hav been denied access to this drug. It’s been deemed to be of use in a rare pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy and can be used as part of treatment to dislodge the fetus. Who knew? The pharmacies and insurance co are denying access to this vital therapeutic drug. Now , if some one wants to purchase it, it may cost $14,000 a month for Humira. This makes no sense. Other drugs are no longer available to women , that help alleviate ulcers are disallowed. GOP States are now interfering in Women’s Health. Who gives them the right to determine what drugs women take for pain or arthritis? Are these GOP Congressmen & women, replacing a women’s physician’s, too! I guess, in Republican States, we’re replacing Physicians, with your local Senator, are they now practicing medicine, without a license?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce You might not want to call flooding events “Climate Change”! However, severe flooding is occurring and reoccurring in the same hot drought areas repeatedly. There’s a lot of water vapor building up in the atmosphere that precipitates the flooding. To adapt, acknowledge fossil fuels are causing thunderstorms of catastrophic proportions and anchor your homes and have exits ready in the short term. In the medium turn, determine how to collect the water from these deluges and channel/ pipe the water effectively to streams and Lakes depleted by the preceding drought. Be innovative and proactive to survive, because flooding is not going to stop or be a once in a 1000 year occurrence. In extreme hot and drought stricken regions, flooding and destruction of infrastructure is the new normal.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce A long eared goat in Pakistan may be winning more than beauty contests. His ears may help him and others, born like him, to survive Pakistan’s intense heat. The 🐇 in Saguaro National Park, have long ears too! The animal kingdom has ways of adapting to the heat, better than man!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Climate crises increasing as Scandinavia and the Balkan States plunge from 30degrees Celsius to below Normal temperatures. The Arctic towns and Northwest Canadian towns will also see lower than normal temperatures after experiencing a heat wave at 30 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile,China will experience temperatures over 30 degrees Celsius in their western region of Jinghe. We have no experience with these swings in climate and may never know when Climate Crises are accelerating. We need a World organization to act collectively to utilize new sustainable products to capture Carbon and power our World with less emissions. Working together, we can maintain parallel systems and then discard the old methodologies in favor of the new! Globalization must evolve to support a healthy life on Earth. We are all connected!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce UN sounds the alarm on inequality and Climate Change. Calling out Coal mining as the enemy of our Planet. ( odd the US Supreme Court wants to preserve coal, though it is the most environmentally harmful of all CO2 and methane emitters) Our World is in crisis; War, Covid and Famine. We can’t afford to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius. If so, billions will die and our water resources, fish & crops will be limited. A lack of resources and the air we breathe, will kill us.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Political ads and SocialMedia supporting violence is unacceptable in a Civilized Society ruled by Laws. The people for promoting violent ads should be barred from serving in any Legislature, the ads banned and the promoters and advertising venues fined. Guns are for self defense, otherwise the 2 nd Amendment doesn’t protect you. Glad the real reason to have a gun is exposed without hypocrisy. Guns are used to murder people and as such , have a limited place in a Civilized Society.
