And now for something completely different. Despite all the shady business practices of Apple, we can't forget their younger (big) brother, Google.



Google's suggestions and recommendations aren't merely things for you to try. They're a way for AI to change your behavior.

Earth appears to be undergoing a process of "biological annihilation."Humanity Has Killed 83% of All Wild Mammals and Half of All Plants, Of all the birds left in the world, 70% are poultry chickens and other farmed birdsSource. A 2017 study looked at animal populations across the planet by examining 27,600 vertebrate species — about half of the overall total that we know exist. They found that more than 30% of them are in decline. Some species are facing total collapse, while local populations of others are going extinct in specific areas. Moreover humans wiped out 60% of animal populations since 1970 Source

Insects are dying off at record rates. Roughly 40% of the world's insect species are in decline, according to one study. Insects aren't the only creatures taking a hit. In the past 50 years, more than 500 amphibian species have declined worldwide — and 90 have gone extinct — due to a deadly fungal disease that corrodes frog flesh. Source

And Plants are going extinct up to 350 times faster than the historical norm

As the rest of the Earth warms, animals will be forced to migrate en masse. This means animals carrying tropical diseases (such as malaria. To give you an idea of why this should really scare you is because diseases like camel flu have a mortality rate of 36%. And the world’s hospitals are not ready for the health challenges of climate change

Fashion is also to blame. In 2015, fashion create more emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Around 10% of global greenhouse gas emission are churned out by the fashion industry, due to its long supply chains and energy intensive production. Textile factories in China, where “over 50%” of the worlds clothing is now made” spew out around three billion tons of soot every year burning coal, contaminating the air leading to respiratory and heart disease. Textile mills are estimated to generate 20% of the world’s industrial water pollution and use 20,000 chemicals, many of them carcinogenic. While people bought 60% more garments in 2014 than in 2000, they only kept the clothes for half as long (throwing 80lbs of cloths a year per American).

The rich know that it is too late, and they will be the only one to survive the global warming article. They are building bunkers and buying NZ passports to fly there when SHTF happens and that’s why they are getting richer and richer exponentially. For example Canada, Norway and Brasil will flood the world with oil just to profit at the maximum Article from NYT from today "Flood of Oil Is Coming, Complicating Efforts to Fight Global Warming". And if anything happens they will just buy Visas and passports for 1M+ and bug out while migrants are put into concentration camps. Moreover The wealthy are plotting to leave us behind
