-"The next pandemic"
-"[It] is going to last"

22nd: "We have to be able to move forward [] because the pandemic is going to last. It’s not going to be over quickly."

24th: "... we create a world that is also able to efficiently & effectively address the next pandemic ..."
Morgan: "To kickstart a solution, we must recognize that the primary focus on short-term growth & #GDP is misplaced... Not only is GDP an outdated way of #measuring economic performance... it is harmful. GDP fails to #measure... if we are living within our planetary boundaries."

#Storytelling.

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

Shills for "The Future We Choose" - round up #2.

Not a coincidence. The majority of those promoting this book are both white & wealthy. #Ecological crisis will never be resolved by the ruling classes. It cannot be resolved within the same economic system that created it.
The Guardian rolls out the red carpet for "The Future We Choose". Par for the capitalist course.

As the former CEO of #WeMeanBusiness, recently appointed by the UK Govt as the High Level Climate Action Champion for UN climate talks, #COP26, of course Nigel Topping is excited.
"It's about human lives"

This anthropocentric ideology appears to be an infectious disease amongst the "enlightened eco-capitalists". It demonstrates that they are absolutely disconnected from the natural world.

#TheFutureTheyChoose will reboot the system destroying Earth.

This is going to be a very important thread.

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.
To start. From the article:

"The theme of this year’s gathering in #Davos is “#stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. According to the forum’s website, leaders will meet to discuss ideas and improve our global progress on climate change."

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

Interlude #2: Next episode by Dr Dre featuring Snoop Dogg. '2001' is a perfect album from start to finish. open.spotify.com/track/4LwU4Vp6…
Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Alhamdulillah pada hari kamis lalu, saya menerima audiensi Global Plastic Action Partnershi (GPAP) dari World Economic Forum (WEF) di kantor.
Audiensi ini diberikan sbg bentuk nyata dukungan terhadap penanganan sampah plastik di tingkat regional & internasional. Kristin Hughes menyampaikan, Indonesia merupakan negara pertama yg bergabung pada forum ini.
Dalam pertemuan ini, Saya ingin berbagai pengalaman pengelolaan sampah di negara lain bisa disampaikan ke masyarakat di Indonesia sehingga masyarakat memiliki kesadaran akan besarnya masalah tersebut di masa mendatang.

AO VIVO: Bolsonaro discursa em Davos; acompanhe: bbc.in/2Drw3nk
Bolsonaro destaca os poucos gastos que fez em sua campanha presidencial e garante que vai investir em segurança: “Somos um dos países primeiros em belezas naturais, mas não estamos entre os 40 mais visitados no mundo.” #Davos
O presidente diz que o Brasil é o país que mais preserva o meio ambiente, mas destaca o papel da agricultura e pecuária na economia. Fazer equilíbrio entre meio ambiente e biodiversidade e esses setores é “necessário ao desenvolvimento econômico", disse. #WorldEconomicForum
