In the West: Propaganda, Hysteria and Truly Foul Breath!

Human Wrongs Watch

By Andre Vltchek | New Eastern Outlook – TRANSCEND Media Service*

If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be laughable: the political brigands in US and Europe are fuming, spitting and rolling their eyes upwards towards the ceiling. They are pointing fingers in all directions, shouting incoherently “China!”, “Russia!”, “Venezuela and Cuba!”, “Iran!”; “You, You, YOU!”.

China and Russia are quietly building a new world, which includes brand new infrastructure, factories and entire neighborhoods for the people. Hospitals are being constructed, and so are universities, parks, concert halls and public transportation networks.

Both countries are doing all this quickly and noiselessly, and with great determination. And despite sanctions and embargos, they never shout back at the salivating, angry mouths of the Western gurus of brainwashing.

.

Biodiversity is a complex, interdependent web, in which each member plays an important role, drawing and contributing in ways that may not even be visible to the eye.

The abundant foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the weather that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.

‘The Foods We Eat, the Air We Breathe, the Water We Drink and the Climate that Makes Our Planet Habitable … All Come from Nature’

1 June 2020 (United Nations)* — The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. For instance, each year, marine plants produce more than a half of our atmosphere’s oxygen, and a mature tree cleans our air, absorbing 22 kilos of carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in exchange. Despite all the benefits that our nature give us, we still mistreat it. That is why we need to work on that.
