  1. ‘Collapse of Civilisation is the Most Likely Outcome’: Top Climate Scientists
    Australia’s top climate scientist says “we are already deep into the trajectory towards collapse” of civilisation, which may now be inevitable because 9 of the 15 known global climate tipping points that regulate the state of the planet have been activated.

    Australian National University emeritus professor Will Steffen (pictured) told Voice of Action that there was already a chance we have triggered a “global tipping cascade” that would take us to a less habitable “Hothouse Earth” climate, regardless of whether we reduced emissions.

  2. ” The description of Ardern as progressive or even “socialistic,” as she was dubbed in the BBC comedy show “Spitting Image,” is a lie. Social inequality has continued to soar under her government and is being exacerbated by the pro-business response to the pandemic.

    Tens of billions of dollars in public money have been handed out to big business in the form of tax cuts, bailouts and wage subsidies. Corporations have meanwhile sacked tens of thousands of people, with the assistance of the trade union bureaucracy. The median income has fallen 7.6 percent in the past year, almost one in four children live in poverty and there is a severe housing crisis, with at least one in 100 people officially homeless.

    Although Ardern is referred to as “the anti-Trump” in numerous articles, she has promised to continue working with Trump if he remains president after the US election. Ardern said nothing about Trump’s open threats to carry out a coup to remain in power. Labour’s coalition deal with NZ First and the Greens in 2017 had the full support of the Trump administration and the government strengthened New Zealand’s integration into US war preparations against China. ”

    ” The picture of New Zealand as a stable society, which Time called “a calmer democracy,” does not reflect reality. Workers have already been involved in major struggles against the Ardern government’s austerity policies, including mass strikes in 2018 and 2019 by nurses and teachers, which were betrayed by the unions.

    The ruthless pro-business restructuring underway in New Zealand will provoke a further resurgence in class struggles and shatter any illusions that exist in the Labour Party-led government and Ardern. ”
    Blaircinda is true to her boss for 2 years Tony Blair. 🙁
