• Landmark Lawsuit Begins: Philippines Sues World Carbon Producers for Typhoon Damages

    World's largest carbon producers face landmark human rights case

    Filipino government body gives 47 ‘carbon majors’ 45 days
    to respond to allegations of human rights violations
    resulting from climate change.
    (**Interesting 'coincidence' that Atlanticists/NWO
    just used Philippines as the litigant for Hague 'Decision' on S. China Sea.. and
    that their 'newly elected no-nonsense' President has offered
    what amounts to a 'bounty' for dead Drug Dealers and Muslim Terrorists.
    I guess what I'm suggesting is that the Philippines appears to be
    a rising 'proxy' for Western interests in the Asian Pacific; future trend.)



    The world’s largest oil, coal, cement and mining companies
    have been given 45 days to respond to a complaint
    that their greenhouse gas emissions have violated the human rights
    of millions of people living in the Phillippines.

    In a potential landmark legal case, the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines (CHR),
    a constitutional body with the power to investigate human rights violations,
    has sent 47 “carbon majors” including Shell, BP, Chevron, BHP Billiton and Anglo American,
    a 60-page document accusing them of breaching people’s fundamental rights
    to “life, food, water, sanitation, adequate housing, and to self determination”.

    The move is the first step in what is expected
    to be an official investigation of the companies by the CHR,
    and the first of its kind in the world
    to be launched by a government body.

      Maybe they don't even need your well wishes. Maybe a certain group of people would want this sort of suit to succeed, if only to give them a reason to enact cap and trade for carbon. Just something to think about.

      I'd thought of that... just too damned tired today to go into the details.

      How can a guy uncharacteristically sleep for 12 hours, arising at noon, and feel exhausted? Those pornographic dreams I damnably can never recall upon waking must have had me really working it last night. I usually sleep 3-4 hours a night and feel exhausted on waking... this bit is a new one on me.

      Wish I could recall those damned dreams... my life is stupid.

      Bingo Jules. (the Philippines is likely a proxy...
      though maybe not totally subservient...
      their new leader Duterte seems determined to fight HARD
      against corruption... tough job... it's been going on a LONG time there.

      I wish him the best of luck... the people are generally GOOD and KIND souls...
      just poor... so 'scams' are rampant... and then you have Abu Sayyaf Muslims
      who literally want the lower half of the Country for themselves...
      the entire island of Mindanao.

      There's also been a MAJOR shift of 'outsourcing' telecoms/customer service
      from: India
      to: the Philippines
      in the last couple of years. It represents SIGNIFICANT transfer of US investment
      away from BRICS and into the Philippines..... yet another 'hint' of a Western anchor point
      (besides Australia, NZ & Japan) in the AsiaPacific... the 'Asian Pivot' of 3 years ago.

      Alex Epstein makes a fantastic case for using fossil fuels. They help poor people survive and live much better:

      Don't know much about the Philippines but I assumed that they are slowly becoming a puppet state for the west. I think they and Vietnam are being groomed to be used as a proxy to attack China. Oh well, bad luck to them if they allow themselves to be used.

      I would check my hemoglobin out if I were you. Just got done talking to a friend who was having the same problem and it turned out his hemoglobin and hematocrit were low. That or just up your iron and folic acid and see if you start feeling better.

      I feel your pain... the other day... I was hiding out in the shade to cool off while doing my A/C work...
      when this $#@!er in a big truck showed up to recharge the CO2 system for the soft drinks....
      I went off on the bastard. and asked him if he knew what he was doing to the world....

      I relented when he told me he was putting bubbles in the soft drinks and asked if I need a hooter.
      I am thinking the guy was from Jamaica.

      What, you think they will not find in favor of the Philippines?

      The largest carbon producer is the US government, and the US military within the US government. I didn't see them named in the suit for some reason.
      Although Al Gore's massive carbon footprint has got to be in the running.
