New York City is seeking to lead the assault on both climate change and the Trump administration with a plan to divest $5bn from fossil fuels and sue the world’s most powerful oil companies over their contribution to dangerous global warming.
City officials have set a goal of divesting New York’s $189bn pension funds from fossil fuel companies within five years in what they say would be “among the most significant divestment efforts in the world to date”. Currently, New York City’s five pension funds have about $5bn in fossil fuel investments. New York state has already announced it is exploring how to divest from fossil fuels.
“New York City is standing up for future generations by becoming the first major US city to divest our pension funds from fossil fuels,” said Bill de Blasio, New York’s mayor.
“At the same time, we’re bringing the fight against climate change straight to the fossil fuel companies that knew about its effects and intentionally misled the public to protect their profits. As climate change continues to worsen, it’s up to the fossil fuel companies whose greed put us in this position to shoulder the cost of making New York safer and more resilient.”
If you’re opposed to this oil pipeline, there is only one major party (NDP) you can support in the BC election this May (or the Greens but their chances of winning seats isn’t great). The election takes place May 9th, 2017.
The BC Liberals have shown they aren’t serious about tackling climate change, respecting indigenous rights or protecting the BC Coast.
If anyone is near Kamloops, BC, my university Thompson rivers university is hosting a panel discussion with indigenous land/water defenders in regards to the fight against oil pipelines. There’s some big names presenting (I recognize a few of them).
It’s a free event, and is happening this Monday, February 6th.
Formed by Lorna and Agatha (Aunt Whispers). Since the supposed disappearance of the spectrum of Lorna’s body, niece and aunt enjoy much more of each other, and spend a lot of time together, making millions of new things or just resting. Agatha kept Lorna out of the outside world since an early age for her safety and for everyone’s, that’s why, Lorna is delighted to finally know the world that surrounds her, little by little and savoring every moment. She usually goes with her aunt, but from time to time she sneaks off alone to explore the forest, listen to the birds, pick up bouquets or simply sleep on the soft grass. Agatha warns her not to arrive too late, but in the end, she always abuses a little bit of her freedom. Oh! And since they are beginning a new stage, Aunt Whispers will stop eating black turtles and now it seems that they are farming them.

They’ve been waiting for hunger’s creed
Eat empty calories because that’s what the vending machines contain while waiting on oil change. Okay, I agreed they could be my soulmate, Coca-Cola is so persuasively cute!! Snicker 😎😉😀😁
I did the graphite sketch early in 2017 becoming obsessed with the image and feeling like I needed to do more with it. Pencil wasn’t enough.
So I took a plunge and started playing with a medium I’ve never used before, oil paint.
This became my first oil painting.
Since then I haven’t put down the paint brush down and continued further pieces in this medium, my new favorite obsession(besides my long term love affair with anything Hannibal).
Taking things further, at the age of 27, I’ve decided to go back to school pursue an education in fine art. What was an interest has turned into a passion and now is about to change my life(I think for the better).
So that being said, happy new year!
I’m grateful to have an inspiration like Hannibal(the series,movies& books) to motivate me to be more passionate about life and enjoy the things right in front of me with my own hands and eyes.
If you live somewhere with snow, get your car’s under carriage washed throughout the winter months. Salt and chemicals are used on roads to make them more drivable, but these in turn cause the bottom of your car to rust.
Speaking of car washes- get familiar with other car care services. Lots of gas stations have air pumps for you to inflate your tires. Car tires loose pressure during the winter and gain pressure in the summer due to temperature changes, so you may need to adjust your tire’s pressure throughout the year. Many car washes have little vacuum stations where you can vacuum your car seats.
Check engine lights are not aways deadly, but they sometimes can be! Mechanics with any common decency will run your car’s check engine code free of charge, it takes literally thirty seconds to do so. I’ve also heard that Autozone will do this as well. If your check engine light comes on, don’t just ignore it. Learn what the code is and decide if it something that needs to be addressed immediately. Do NOT put your life in jeopardy.
Do NOT wait until the end of the month to get your yearly inspection completed. If your inspection is up at the end of September, go in August. You can get your inspection done early! I recommend doing this, because sometimes unexpected and expensive problems turn up. Don’t give yourself a week to come up with $500!
Similarly- not all mechanics are stand up. If someone gives you an expensive quote, don’t just settle for it. Shop around and see what other mechanics say. Also, ask your friends/family who their mechanic is. A friend of mine is a tow truck driver and he recommend my current mechanic to me.
