Is a 1.5°C climate change limit still achievable? - by John Englart (Takver)
While we ponder whether we will overshoot the already dangerous level of 2 Degrees Celsius of warming on the way to 4C or 5C degrees warming by the end of the century, scientists have assessed whether it is still possible to restrict global warming to just 1.5C degrees. The short answer? Yes, it is technologically possible, but requires substantial and immediate emissions reductions with no room for further delay or obstruction.

Corporate Trade Agenda Attacks Americans’ Right to Know - by via Food & Water Watch
Washington, D.C.—Today, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry that went into effect in the United States in 2013 are not compliant with global trade standards. The WTO continued to find that the goal of providing information to consumers was compliant with international trade rules, but it decided narrowly that the implementation of the rules for COOL labels negatively impacted livestock imports from Canada and Mex...

Wealth is not a Private Affair - by Ulrich Thielemann
The US faces a revenue- and a war-spending crisis. The top tax rate was over 70% from 1938 to 1982; corporations stash trillions in tax havens. Joseph Stiglitz warns that inequality creates suboptimal economies. Since capital gains taxes are half of regular taxes, speculators pay much less than workers. Alternative economics emphasize that our economic problems are endogenous, not exogenous. Profit-maximizing is different than profit-making (Ulrich Thielemann). In late stage financial capi...

On the End of Capitalism - by Ulrike Herrmann
Capitalism will collapse in a chaotic and brutal way... The bridge from capitalism to the new "post-growth economy" is lacking. Hardly anyone reflects about the process of transformation... If the climate should be spared, fly8ing cannot be a human right. The unpleasant R-word that threatens growth will be unavoidable again: renunciation. This cannot be limited to flying since energy consumption can only be reduced by producing less.
