In a previous thread (read first: ), I outlined how the #WorldEconomicForum's #GreatReset & #BuildbackBetter plans also have a #diet part, called the #GreatFoodTransformation.

Let's now look at where it's coming from; planned way BEFORE #COVID19! Thread👇 Image
The #EAT foundation -calling itself 'a Davos for Food'- has designed a #GreatFoodTransformation compaign to put the world on a so-called #PlanetaryHealthDiet, which is a semi-vegetarian diet (vegan also allowed) looking like 👇 (note that one can have more sugar than beef?!) Image
The '#GreatFoodTransformation' not only echoes Davos' #GreatReset but also the '#GreatTransformation' proposed in 2011 by the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU): wbgu.de/en/publication… Image

> have the 'brilliant' idea of ferrying all of it to #Heligoland and blow-up a beautiful German island, in 1947, in the strongest non-nuclear explosion until 1985

loc. cit. "Adding to the bitterness is the obvious fact that the British had really enjoyed blowing up #Helgoland.

“There is nothing I would like to do better,” is how Air Marshal Sir Philip Wigglesworth announced his intentions to attend the explosion as a spectator.

> The Royal Navy had arranged for the blast to be photographed from as many angles as possible — and then published the results in a souvenir book.

The #BBC had a reporter reporting live from an aircraft circling the site, and keen radio listeners in the south of #England

It’s the time of year where I grade #HerpFall2019 field notebooks! Always fun to see how they remember things and express themselves.

Some #HerpFall2019 students thought belastomatid #insects were “nightmare fuel” 😂

We caught a few of these aquatic predators in our minnow traps. They’ll absolutely eat #amphibians ImageImage

With #Halloween approaching, what haunts you? I often worry about how quickly #animals are going extinct, and especially #frogs. Here's some of the ways your support can help me prevent then from becoming #environmental ghosts: patreon.com/MyFrogCroaked #FridayFeeling #FrogFriday
Did you know? Many baby #frogs (tadpoles) act as “river lawn mowers” by grazing on algae and plant material that falls into rivers. Their presence helps protect clean water which people and #wildlife both depend on. #FrogFriday
Also, #frogs may help control the spread of human #diseases spread by #insects, like #malaria, dengue & Zika. The tadpoles of some frog species are carnivorous & kill mosquito eggs & larvae. Keeping frogs healthy can help keep people healthy too patreon.com/MyFrogCroaked #OneHealth

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
