As I have predicted for some years, the first large corporations to change their policies on carbon investments will be insurance companies. Since they pay out claims brought on by disasters, they are exquisitely attuned to what causes disasters and carbon energy is at the top of their list. Insurance companies understand what Republicans will not admit — climate change is a game changer unlike anything ever seen before by the human species. So I take AXA’s action as good news.
The Pacific Ocean is dying- From the ground up the entire food chain is collapsing.
Is it time to call it quits on vaccines yet?
GlaxoSmithKline Argentina Laboratories Company was fined 400,000 pesos by Judge Marcelo Aguinsky following a report issued by the National Administration of Medicine, Food and Technology (ANMAT in Spanish) for irregularities during lab vaccine trials conducted between 2007 and 2008 that allegedly killed 14 babies. Likewise, two doctors -Héctor Abate, and Miguel Tregnaghi- were fined 300,000 pesos each for irregularities during the studies. The charges included experimenting with human beings as well falsifying parental authorizations so babies could participate in the vaccine-trials conducted by the laboratory from 2007 to 2008.
I find it very interesting that at the moment in our history when science has never been more important in making social policy there is an aggressive and well-funded campaign to keep science from doing just that. All in the name of profit. The only thing that is going to change the outcome is a mass movement of citizens who actively work for and vote for the most compassionate and life-affirming candidate of those available.
