Environmental problems have political solutions

Greta Thunberg came to Montreal during Canada's last federal election.  Over a million Canadians marched in the streets demanding climate change action.  Then many participants didn't vote and most of the rest voted for a government that increases our dependence on converting fossil carbon into GHG emissions.

I don't blame politicians for poor governance.  I blame voters.

Environmentalists must stop voting for governments we end up protesting.  Instead we must run for office, volunteer, donate money and vote for political environmentalists who have environmental activism experience, not political opportunists who only have words.

If you aren't part of the political solution, then you are part of the environmental problem.

Truth in Advertising: We've done this with pharmaceuticals and food labeling... why not with tech communication and broadcasting?

Example:  Any broadcast or social media can only label themselves "News" if they adhere to a rigorous test of provable facts and evidence.

If it does not, it  cannot call itself "News."  It may call itself Opinion, Thoughts, Musings or Doggy bags, but not 'News.'
Breaking these broadcast rules would results in severe fines, suspensions and license revocations.

The War of the World's broadcast in 1939 resulted in panic, property damages, accidents, injuries ... all because the public didn't know the difference between a show and real Journalism. Broadcasting was heavily regulated for decades after that.

Can we not do the same today? Free speech is one thing... but yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theatre is illegal. 
We can figure this out. Its not that hard.

bill and rebecca are nice enough to let us come in and cut up and we should be more respectful

this is their baby, their livelihood, and i'm actually worried that it may get compromised

yep.  and on top going in, too.  Don't want any vacuums forming higher up.  The rocking / tilting should take care of that from happening, too.
