The Parable of the Ozone
Once upon a time researchers discovered a thinning of the ozone layer, especially in certain geographic areas and a link to chloroflourocarbons, most particularly a refrigerant named Freon(tm). While there were calls to do something, there was also much FUD, obstruction, obfuscation and deflection from both hired gun "scientists" and buffoons like the Limboid Gasbag. All the same, the political classes and other chatterers expressed grave concerns, and a determination that something should perhaps be done if and when we were able to be absolutely 101% certain of all of the science involved. Needless to say, nothing actually happened and said politicians most especially did nothing meaningful.
In the fullness of time, Dupont and other worthies developed a replacement refrigerant and propellent that did materially less harm to said ozone less rapidly. They forthwith claimed the mantle of heroes and left their shills, paid and unpaid, hanging out to dry by asserting that YES, the ozone hole was a thing, and YES, it was getting worse, and YES, Freon was part of the problem and most especially YES, they had a new replacement product that would solve everything. NOW, said the politicians, NOW, our owners and allies have a piece of the action, and hence NOW we can act and even act quasi forcefully and rapidly, for politicians, that is.
So, consider who, if anybody, has a piece of the action and you will always know which way the wind blows:
use of actual herbs and other vegetable matter v patented extracts
Things to ameliorate the climate emergency v business as usual
Universal Healthcare for US citizens. v big med, insurance and big pharma
Harmless metabolics, vitamins and such plus a healthy diet as preventatives and at least accessory treatments for a range of disorders and diseases v junk food plus packaged processed food, and supplemented by pharma
Research into damn near anything that isn't a weapon
Green New Deal
EFCA (is that even still an idea?)
You get the idea.
