Episode 295: Rumble with Michael Moore
I’m almost 87 ears old and my take on all of what we now know is, “Why in the heck aren’t the young generation up in arms about this?!” THIS is what they are facing, and yep, still, it’s old farts like me that try to conserve, use biodegradable products, recycle as much as possible, use my own cloth bags for my groceries, careful on not using so many plastic containers and bags, and on & on, trying to save this planet for these young selfish youngsters. Makes me want to say, “ Screw it!”
However, then I watch my three year old Great GREAT Grandson and tell myself, “Well, Granny, keep the faith and try to save it for him and all of the other three year olds.” Thanks Mike 🌻😢
So I’m listening to you and of course, it’s easy to get depressed about the rotten state of our communities/country/planet. And yet I am surprised that you have not addressed the positive …the possibilites presented by Marianne Williamson, running for president for 2024. While our focus on preventing Trump from taking office again is on so many peoples minds We are doing ourselves a big disservice. The thing, the major thing that Marianne presents to us is hope/love. If we are to Survive as a species, we are going to have to claim hope/love and use it as a focus in everything we do from this point on. Hope for the future. Love for each other, and our planet and all of life. Without this, as a guiding principle, we are certainly doomed, and we might as well all start doing heavy drugs and frequenting the bar.
The corporatacracy sees profit as only the bottom line. We must see love as our bottom line. If this sounds airy fairy, so be it. We are going to need a woman president who cares about life, love and the health and welfare of our planet more than a male president, who is worried about the economy and the military.
Every moment we spend giving the attention to those who negatively crave it is a waste of our precious time. Let’s turn the volume up on those who will move us forward as a species in a healthy way, so that our children and grandchildren… Those who may be able to come after us, have a real future, one that does not need to look to the stars for escape. and by the way, the earth could really give a shit whether we survive or not. I just hope that we, collectively speaking, wake up to this now.
No. Not. Ever. No time for RFK or others that want airtime to spew b.s. https://www.racefiles.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/No.-NOT-EVER.pdf
Yes, I guess I'm another follower of you that wants to hear more of RFK, Jr. You should have him on, YES. Why, because light will shine on what is true. Don't be afraid, that's not your style. Let him explain his views. It will either convince you that his message is important or it will bury him. You have to admit that 98% of his major views are 'Right On' with what I know you believe in: No Wars, Battle Huge Corporations and Military Industrial Complex , Protect Food supplies, Focus on Low and Medium Income Americans, Fight Poverty. RFK Jr. seems to be able to ask the hard questions. Don't get so upset with him looking into something that COULD be true. That's how he has formulated almost all of his Democratic ideals listed above. 'Don't throw out the baby with the bath water'!
RFK, Jr. is so wacky! No, don't have him on!!
Prison for Trump. prison for McCarthy, the man with an IQ of 65. Prison for the republican senate and congress. Death actually preferable. Please bury Mitch McConnell his stench is adding to the bad air as he's rotting away. Death preferable for all of them so we can start all over. RFK is a moron. He needs a shot of fentanyl, or even heroin in his head, or maybe he already does drugs. By the way, Boebert can give Trump a blow job without bending over. I'm tired of all the scumbags in our government. It also makes me sick that the ceo's of fast food companies and pharmaceuticals are making billions by selling shit food to make people sick so they can send them to quack doctors to sell them drugs.
A great way to keep up on science is to watch TWiV, This Week in Virology, with Vincent Racaniello. They address many subjects related to Covid and many other things. They just posted an episode with Dr. Dan Wilson of Debunk the Funk, talking about RFK, Jr.'s podcast with Joe Rogan and what a bunch of hooey it was.
Thanks Michael for the sobering reminder of the impact of climate change on our mother planet. Oceans are warming to record levels, uncontrolled forest fire in Canada are darkening our skies, and torrential rains are flooding the Northeast. All this at a time when the Sun is entering it’s active sunspot period, which it does every 22 years, creating more intense coronal mass ejections. You don’t need to have RFK Jr on your podcast, instead invite Greta Thunberg or Neil DeGrasse Tyson for some serious Earth saving discussions. I fear a major hurricane of biblical proportions could strike this season given all the warning signs.
We need to focus our attention on the number 1 issue for the 2024 political campaigns- Saving Earth and all Life, including Us.
Hey Mike, we appreciate your voice! Listen, this is important information but you do need to get out and enjoy something. Life is about experiences and memories. We all leave this planet sooner or later!!!!
Thank you for not giving any air space to RKJr. No. Just no. And thank you for the music today, especially Blackbird.
Jeff Goodell came out with a new book "the heat will kill you first." The subject is global warming. It is much, much worse than I ever thought. It sounds like the only hope for our planet is if every car, truck, airplane, gas stove, heater, every oil refinery etc. etc. would stop running tomorrow. How likely is that? How likely is that some Deus Ex Machina will save us? But all the more reason we make our final days serving the betterment of humankind.
love how funny you are in this recording; thanks Mike
The Earth is saying to us, "Yo no soy cenicero."
love the Blackbird in other language, thank you.
talking of hurricanes and tree rings you gotta hear this podcast because it is exactly on that subject and how they relate , oh yes, and piriates and the sun at solar minimum in the 1600?- 1700's .

I think the Biden's infrastructure bill is putting a bandaid on the problem, instead of focusing on the impact of climate change.
No 1 impact is human migration, and we are already seeing it.
The government should be moving people from the coast as the sea rises. And building homes to withstand the heat. But as you know, the government won't do this, they want to reduce our population by doing nothing for the underprivlaged and passing legislation that is hurting their chances even more. Distraction!!! There is nothing to see , these are not the droids your looking for!
We can build homes like: Have you ever seen those underground homes? What are they called? spaceship homes? Started by a professor of architecture in AZ, i think? the side facing out from underground, has a green house with windows . The garden recycles the grey water. Grow food inside a sheltered green house, further in is the living space, and there are ducts from underground that cools the home down without A/C. we need more of those. and in higher elevations To be away from flooding. Also the underground houses would protect us from solar flares too.
Unfortunately, the solar flares has been linked to earthquake activity. It is a new theory that some scientists are starting to agree that every major earthquake can he traced to a major solar flare like 24 hours or less beforehand. So the underground houses, maybe a problem with earthquakes. Survival is random.
It has been brought to many scientists and historians the theory that civilization on Earth has been nearly destroyed every 100,000 -150,000 years or so cycle. Funny it lines up with the new astrological cycle, we are now in the age of Aquarius! It is time of the cataclysm again. T he geologists say sphinx is way older that the archeologists speculate. Humans have nearly been whiped out and have come back many more times than the Egyptians and the Biblical flood. We just don't know it! But there is ruins that don't fit in the time scale historians say.
okay, sorry, long winded.
Conclusion, the sun and the planet alignments are causing the Earth to wobble, we are nearing that cataclysmic assault on the Earth, whether climate change- fires and floods, or earthquakes, volcanoes eruptions, or an asteroid.
Something devastates the population of Earth, and "decreasing our CO2 level" is good for the Earth, but I don't think it will avert the problem we are facing.
But I believe there is hope for us. A little preventive measures , underground places, reseving resources, ect and we CAN be the ones who survive. Also I truly believe in the power of the collective human mind, as we acend into a higher level , we as a collective whole can influence the problems of the world- quantum physics at its best!. We just have to believe. Be positive, share your love of others, Meditate or pray positive thoughts and we can get through this! whew! we got this!
Michael, you’re kinda goofy, thanks for keeping me smiling.
