This is not just an issue in the US, Australia has similar environmental problems with coal-seam methane extraction by ‘fracking’: http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/content/2011/s3141787.htm
Not all Israelis believe in the states mission to ethnically cleanse Palestine of all Palestinians and Bedouin. And the violence, human and civil right abuses committed by state. Hopefully they will overcome the old powers and install a real democracy.
As well as preventing people entering Palestine legally, they also use brutality to suppress peaceful protest. And Governments and Airlines do nothing but the Israelis bidding:
Once again we see the evil hand of Monsanto, with all it’s money convince a Government that there product will save the day. What will happen is the people and environment will be poisoned. Then the output from this product will decline, leaving the Nepalese worse off from before. They need to investigate organic farming methods, with the choice of crops they are trying to grow.
The Israelis do not care about laws, they have ignored International Law since before their inception, with their terrorist acts in Palestine pre-1948.
Ahead of planned fly-in protest, lawyer who defended activists who took part in 2011 ‘flytilla’ says protesters must gain entry to Israel in order to request West Bank entry from IDF.

Israel’s Interior Ministry has no authority to refuse entry to activists taking part in Sunday’s pro-Palestinian fly-in protest, a lawyer who represented activists detained in last year’s protest claims.
The fly-in protest, part of a campaign entitled “Welcome to Palestine,” is due to take place on Sunday with the arrival of thousands of international activists at Ben-Gurion Airport. Last July, a similar “fly-in” took place, with over 300 international activists arriving in Israel, and 120 detained.

This is an advert in The Independent, The Daily Telegraph refused to publish, refuting the Daily Telegraphs claim that moving to a clean economy is bad for business. Obviously, the Telegraph’s journalists have done absolutely no research for their article.
Because of climate chaos caused by the industrialised Global North, it is the poorest who suffer the most.
People go on about renewables receiving, which is a trivial amount. Whilst fossil-fuels and nuclear have had Billions in subsidies.
How many lobbyists does it take to defend billions in subsidies for one of the most profitable industries in the world? 786. That’s the size of the army that oil and gas companies maintain in Washington to strong-arm Congress into bankrolling an industry that is cutting jobs and literally fueling the climate crisis. This army is bigger than Congress itself, which has only 535 members.
Last year, Democrats on the House Natural Resources Committee decided to investigate Big Oil’s jobs claims — and it turns out the industry has gone on a firing spree in recent years. They discovered that despite generating $546 billion in profits between 2005 and 2010, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, and BP reduced their U.S. workforce by 11,200 employees over that period. In 2010 alone, the top five oil companies slashed their global workforce by 4,400 employees — the same year executives paid themselves nearly $220…

At a time which is considered Holy, Easter or Passover, the suffering of the Palestinians goes unabated. What hypocrites, those who go to church and synagogues, whilst ignoring what is happening in their name. Why are the Palestinians dying for the sins of the United States Jewish industrialists and financiers, who supported Hitler before and at the beginning of the Second World War. This is something that Sir Winston Churchill, documents in his book, The Second World War, London, Cassell 1959. That, even though knew of the treatment of Jews in NAZI occupied lands (except Denmark), they wanted to support the Nazis, to destroy the British Trade Empire, once and for all. This is ultimately why Palestine, which had a 2% Jewish population, should be a new Jewish state. The Palestinians, who were are allies during the First and Second World Wars, have been made to suffer for the failures of the US and Europe. To even hint, that it is the Israelis who are in the wrong will ultimately lead to accusations, I am anti-Semitic. That is how they censor criticism, something they highlight at the end of the video.
