Private jets are a luxury for the ultra-rich who wreck the planet with destructive lifestyles.

North America (basically the USA) is home to more private jets than all other regions of the world *combined*.

Private jets are ~10 times more polluting per passenger than scheduled flights, and 50 times more than an average train ride.

It's time to #BanPrivateJets ‌

What foods could disappear from your dinner plate as the planet changes?

Almonds
Avocados
Beef
Rice

What’s inside: An overlooked risk of climate change’s impact on food systems, experts say, is that rising carbon dioxide levels can interfere with the chemistry of plants and make food crops like wheat, corn, rice and soy less nutritious — a major health risk in parts of the world that already don’t get enough essential nutrients

New research shows fossil fuel subsidies over the forward estimates have increased to a record breaking $57.1b, up from the $55.3b forecast in 2022

As the federal budget approaches, future fossil fuel subsidies will cost 14 times the amount invested in the Australian Disaster Ready Fund, & more than the amount spent on the Australian Army

IF the goal of our leaders was to insure that all citizens would thrive within a healthy ecosphere, and that our society could be sustainable in the long-term...

THEN companies would be prohibited from doing things that grievously harm the environment, and huge profits that generate more inequality would be disallowed...

That makes sense, doesn't it?

Unfortunately, the opposite seems to be true.

As it stands, our leaders actively reward companies who grievously harm the environment, even providing subsidies for doing so, while they encourage and cheer on the taking of huge profits leading to greater inequality.
