“The Chinese miracle is over.”

In a wide-ranging conversation, top radio talk show hosts and senior @EpochTimes staff provided context to an audience of media professionals about some of the most important headlines regarding #China. theepochtimes.com/the-chinese-mi…
John @batchelorshow, a talk show host on WABC in New York, said the #TradeWar has highlighted how “China’s business model is broken.”

US #Tariffs have taught companies they can move their supply chains out of #China, without being subject to unfair trade practices.
@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.

Tired of not getting any ideas on what to do about #climatechange
Here's just a few:
reduce driving
stop using/buying plastics/chemicals
turn off all appliances at the plug when not in use - many stay 'on' even when switched off including computer & phone plugs
#climateaction
close off heat to rooms that are not used
buy recycled clothing
use air conditioning sparingly
Spay/Neuter pets
Reduce Waste/buy products w/ no or less packaging
Plant Trees - #climateaction
Plant Flowers for pollinators
Stop using gas fueled power tools like blowers or lawn mowers
Get your car checked for emissions/leaks

Keep fireplaces and wood stove clear of creosote

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

Narmada Valley project had a target of irrigating 1.79 million Ha through a 74,000-km canal network. However, 40 years after the tribunal award, only 36% of d network--27,189 km--has been constructed. Gujarat could only supply irrigation water to 628000 Ha i.e. half its target.😏
Imagine the state of affairs of data fudging, when #Gujarat Govt claims in state assembly,that #agri growth is 11%/annum in 2018, but #CAG puts d figure at 3.6%.
👉U can believe in whatsoever u like, but the truth remains d truth, no matter how sweet the lie may taste
@rachitseth
#Gujarat Model
👇
The revisions of Narmada project’s command area are ad-hoc & not systematic. If there r #industries coming up near a town, the Govt will revise the command area, saying it is to bring drinking water to people, & these revisions r not disclosed to the #farmers.😏

I think we can all agree that food is pretty important for survival.

Climate Change is already impacting food security- it is not a distant, ambiguous concern: 

More than 1 million acres of US cropland ravaged by floods

*New thread* Today we've published two new reports on UK #land use & #biomass setting out why they're important in tackling climate change & how our land can help to build resilience to climate impacts. Here's a summary of both: theccc.org.uk/wp-content/upl… and theccc.org.uk/wp-content/upl…
Kicking off with land use: Our report says fundamental reform to how land is used and managed is needed to deliver the UK’s climate goals. There is now a unique opportunity to define a better land strategy that can tackle the challenges of #climatechange. Read the Exec Summary.
Significant changes in land use could help reduce emissions by 35-80% by 2050. Figure 2.5 explains. Deeper cuts in emissions by 2050 require ↑↑ tree planting & peatland restoration, while the harvesting of biomass could help to displace emissions in energy & construction.

According to the @WSJ the Iraqi #government has bank accounts with the U.S. Federal Reserve, where its #dollars are kept, which the Iraqi economy relies upon could be frozen should Iraq violate #sanctions politico.com/magazine/story…
#Iran has deliberately flooded Iraqi market with cheap imports and foodstuffs. This has undercut Iraq agriculture by decreasing demand4 homegrown products that R more expensive. Even if Iraq were2 stop buying these goods #farmers would not B able2 produce enough supplies at home
Iran has political leverage, too. Since the May 12 national #election Iraq’s political elites have been unable to form a government in part because of enormous pressure from #Tehran to install politicians in their favor. Iran’s loyalists succeed and dominate the new government...

To all farmers getting a piece of the $12 b handout:
Pull your bootstraps, and get a second and third jobs minimum wage ( that never increased) like every single mother with cut safety nets. If you can drive a tractor you can Fucking drive a cab or @Uber. No freeloading.
Remember how they cut funding for healthcare to let it implode? Let them farmers implode. They made their bed.
Hey farmers, I will follow you to Walmart and if I see you buying shrimp or baby back ribs I am sending the tap to @seanhannity. That will teach you

Have you ever wondered why "pepper" is classified as a vegetable?

Here is why 👇. #issathread

#agriculture #farmers #agribusiness
First of all, the matured ovaries of any plant is what develops into a fruit. Pepper, of course, is one of them.
Therefore, botanically, any kind of pepper is fruit.

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote
