Endorse this climate initiative NOW and share!
We are now experiencing extreme weather events and conditions predicted for 30 years or more. And this is just the beginning. This is the hour when Mother Nature gets rolling.
The important thing for people to realize is that the EPA has many levers under the Toxic Substances Control Act. For example, they can regulate the industry with a fee and dividend so that they charge taxes on the fossil fuel industry. And those taxes are 100% refunded to the public, based on the public's financial needs.
Dr. Lise Van Susteren is an expert on climate change's physical and psychological impacts and was behind implementing the Toxic Substances Control Act. Today, Cate and Lise Van Susteren will talk about the power of the Toxic Substances Control Act and its effect on large industries, how politics is hugely involved in protecting the environment, and the emotional effect on every individual.
What you’ll get out of tuning in:
How does Toxic Substance Control Act work? How large can the Toxic Substances Control Act affects industries? How the Politics block things, not the public? How do environmental problems affect an individual’s emotional state? Links/CTA:

The EPA would have to formulate and implement rules that could, for example, impose a fee on carbon emissions and require companies to remove carbon from the atmosphere they have already expelled.
But it’s all there in black and white in the Toxic Substances Control Act, which passed and was amended with bipartisan support. Textualists will have to tie themselves in knots to explain why the law’s words don’t mean what they clearly say.

Frankly, it's not the public so much anymore. It's the political world that is blocking things. And it's just a few people. You get the people who care the most, are the most sensitive, and they'll become the most depressed and despondent on not wanting to reproduce. If we want to change society, it's by connecting with the people that were connected to. So that's one of the key elements that people don't always realize. We have the power to design the future the way we want, the way we know, and we should, ethically. We're spending about $150 billion a year on cleanup. And suppose you take the national average inflation-adjusted. In that case, that's about three times the amount in the 40 years before the last five years and three times the annual amount we used to need to clean up after extreme weather.

Blood-Clotting Side-Effects from Covid MRNA Vaccines with Dr. Stephanie Seneff
Many individuals compare some of the long-term side effects people are experiencing to long-term COVID after receiving the vaccine. According to estimates, 30% of those who catch COVID develop a long COVID. But it's an unknown factor.
The countries where glyphosate is widely used are those where it accumulates in crops and enters the food chain. Glyphosate exposure, which we frequently experience, interferes with our immune system's ability to combat the virus. Everyone who received the vaccine is suffering from the same impact. If you have a strong immune system, you can handle the vaccine.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a senior researcher at MIT and has been working on studies with mRNA vaccines. Today, Cate and Dr. Stephanie will talk about COVID, COVID vaccines, how food affects an individual’s immune system, and how glyphosate plays an essential role in agriculture.
What you’ll get out of tuning in:
How to tell the difference between longtail COVID symptoms and vaccine effects How glyphosate disrupts the innate immune system How spike protein starts damage within our body How vaccines make it worse How glyphosate plays an essential role in agriculture How vaccinated people can still shed virus How vaccinations impact fertility How do someone clear heavy periods and massive blood clots Links/CTA:

I've long believed that stress is an agent that induces accelerated evolution. It probably does. Through the viruses, once you have and have stress, your immune system is weak, and the viruses come in and take over. The herbs are so important. The American diet kind of ignores those things. It's just potato chips and hamburgers and soy protein bars. Nitrous oxide is 100 times worse than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. I think you need to have a healthy immune system if you've got a weak innate immunity. Everything's going to happen slower because you depend upon your immune cells to remove the things that are bad, and it's particularly the spike protein itself. Guest Bio: Stephanie Seneff

Emotional Inflammation in a Crazy World on a Sacred Planet with Dr. Lise Van Susteren
When it comes to climate change, we've all heard about droughts and flooding and the impact on agriculture and infrastructure from extreme weather events such as hurricanes. However, we may not hear as much about climate change's physical and mental health consequences.
Natural disasters can negatively impact health and emotional well-being. People who are affected by extreme weather events and slow-moving disasters, such as droughts, face a wide range of challenges in their lives. Mental health repercussions of climate change events include mild stress and anguish, high-risk coping behaviors such as increased alcohol use, and occasionally mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Dr. Lise Van Susteren is an expert on climate change's physical and psychological impacts. She earned her Ph.D. in Geography at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, and has been researching climate change since 2007. She has written several books on the subject, including The Heat Is On: The Science, Politics, and Solutions to Global Warming (2016) and The Climate Crisis: Dispatches from the Front Lines (2017). In this episode, she shares knowledge on climate change, how it affects the health of many people, and what actions we must take to get better.

Evolve Men with Angus Nelson
Men are expected to be strong and mighty. This causes them to keep everything to themselves, not wanting to appear weak. They often keep their emotions to themselves as they believe that they will be used against them once they show their weakness. This prevents them from being happy as they have to pretend what society has imposed on them and hide their feelings.
In recent years, society has developed a variety of demands that require a variety of approaches. To meet these demands, men need to adapt. The process of understanding what needs to be done involves growth and development.
Angus Nelson is a coach and the founder of Evolve Men Coaching. He is among the nation's leading performance strategists as he helps ambitious men achieve freedom, happiness, and purpose. In this episode, he shares his experience as a coach and his views and insights on the growth, development, and history of men in this lifetime.

“We refuse to share weakness, vulnerability, and transparency because we believe on some level in our business structure that someone is going to weaponize any kind of weakness that we show.” “It's not that we pursue happiness because that will be fleeting. You're going to be chasing that all the time. It's filling your life with the things that naturally and effervescently give you happiness and joy.” “Until a man knows who he is, he can never become or be anything outside of that.” “All that identity shifting we did in the beginning now brings about these new opportunities. Because you've upgraded yourself, you want to attract your brain and this equilibrium to attract these higher frequent levels, relationships, experiences, and opportunities.” “Just like everything else, we attract what we are. If we're trying to pursue these great and mighty things, what we find is that those great and mighty things are filled with emptiness. Because we're doing them out of the pursuit of validation.” “Transformation in your life is nothing more than having a context of tools that help you advance your understanding, yielding, and letting go.” “I'm giving myself permission, and that permission is all the power you need.” Gues

"When you get on the other side of the intermittent fasting habit. I promise this doesn't occur to you to think about food. Not in that way. You go to the refrigerator; there happens to be food; maybe your future self did some things to help prepare food so that it's really simple to make your glorious meal and nourish your glorious soul." "There are opportunities everywhere you look all the time, all the time, and they keep getting better. You know what to say yes to, and that's what you choose to do with your focus." "The culture is so toxic that you don't design your own lifestyle super intelligently. Like you cannot assume that like the normal around you has the right answers."
