Imagine a near future in which the fictional University of #Leonia announces a degree program in #DiscardStudies. In doing so, they help to establish this emerging field with a full #curriculum, dedicated faculty, and eager student population. 1/10 @DiscardStudies | #Discard2020 Image
At U of L, teaching discard studies is about more than talking #trash. This new programโ€™s core trains students to use #SystemsThinking to critique #power as the structural force that renders material, people, and land as #waste in a globalized #ColonialCapitalist society. 2/10 Image
Treating objects and organisms as "#disposable" has consequences, but the root of this #WickedProblem runs deep below the surface. Traditional disciplines are insufficient for studying waste bc they focus on the details and fail to recognize the full picture (Brown, 2010). 3/10

Previously, I linked #BuildBackBetter & the #GreatReset to the #MauriceStrong network (mid-1970s but kicking off with the 1992 UN #EarthSummit in Rio). I also linked Strong to the #Rockefeller clan. We may have to go a bit further back in time.

Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
In 1972, The #ClubofRome published its '#LimitsToGrowth', using simulations to describe the impact of resource depletion on #economic growth. The Club was founded in 1968 by David #Rockefeller, the industrialist Aurelio Peccei & Alexander King.
Its computer-generated models of #doom were designed to impress but were based on simplistic ideas & dubious assumptions. The report, nonetheless, remains influential & illustrates the #Rockefeller obsession with population growth & #resource control

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

#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]

This is the anticline at the #MooseRiver #gold mine. It was formed by the collision of #NorthAmerica and #NorthAfrica 325 million years ago. Layers of horizontal sedimentary rock were crumpled into #anticlines (domes) and #synclines (troughs) - a series of rock waves.
#nspoli #NS ImageImageImage
The #Anticline hosts the Touquoy #gold deposit. Its domes trapped melted, gold-containing rock as it rose from deep in #earth's crust. It flowed into fractures in the rock, creating quartz veins with gold. There are also tiny disseminated particles of gold throughout.
#nspoli #NS ImageImage
The #MooseRiver #gold mine is the first in a series of proposed gold #mines along the #EasternShore. About 300 people work there and the other mines would create 100s more jobs for #NovaScotians.
#Mining employs 5500 in #NS and is the highest-paying #resource industry.

FACTS ABOUT GOLD AND THE ENVIRONMENT
#Gold #mining is bringing 100s of millions of $ in investment to #NovaScotia and creating 100s of jobs for #NovaScotians.
Modern mining is a sophisticated science-based activity that takes proper care of the enviro.
#nspoli Image
@Guysboro #Reclamation - Before getting operating permits, #NovaScotia #mining companies must get government approval of reclamation plans and post reclamation bonds that ensure funds are available to properly take care of sites.
#nspoli #NS #minerals #geology Image
@Guysboro Water Management: Mine operators are required to treat, strictly monitor and test water, and report to @nsgov. Water is usually recycled on-site. Water released back into a river or lake is usually cleaner after it has been used in a mine or quarry than it was beforehand.
