Just 100 Companies Sign Humanity's Death Sentence

Only 100 companies will sign humanity’s death sentence. That’s it. One hundred corporate boards filled with sociopaths. But I’ll get back to that in a moment.

Not long ago climate activists in New York City jammed up foot traffic on Wall Street with a die-in, covering themselves in fake blood and lying on the ground. Other activists in Washington, D.C., blocked intersections using a variety of tactics, gridlocking traffic and pissing off a lot of people. It seems clear that when it comes to our impending extinction, practically no one cares unless it means they have to sit in traffic for 10 extra minutes. Apparently there is nothing that upsets Americans more than being stuck in their car, moving at a negative MPH, completely unable to get to the jobs they fucking hate.

And that’s why those are the types of protests that matter — the ones that interrupt the flow of capitalism, not the colorful marches where we all show up for two hours while the politicians we’re ostensibly trying to influence go play golf. I’m not saying don’t get involved in the friendly marches — I’m just saying our rulers don’t care that you did. It’s like when you dress up your baby in a costume: I’m not saying you have to stop, but you’re only doing it for yourself. The ruling elite, like your baby, don’t actually care.

But since I aim to please, here’s a point for those of you who don’t give a shit about the climate crisis. The corporations that are screwing up your life, tainting your water, polluting your air, buying up your favorite coffee shop and turning it into a gas station, sucking your tax dollars up through subsidies, and all the while paying their employees a warm can of farts per hour—those corporations are the same ones creating the climate catastrophe.

In fact, The Guardian reported that just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of global greenhouse gas emissions. These include:

How should US use our resources?

Hey folks,
I'm in Korea on my way back from China. (Can you believe they let me out?) Might be able to pull off a livestream tomorrow (Mon, the 26th). Fingers crossed. Either way, very soon I'll be telling you about everything I saw & experienced while in China.

This is incredibly, brutally honest. Sure it's The Onion, but damn is it right. Since I already get some of my news from The Most Censored Comedian, maybe I should start taking The Onion more seriously!

LEAKED: US Oligarchs Are Intentionally Creating Recession To Harm Workers
They Admit It Behind Closed Doors

by Lee Camp

They’re comin’ after us! The Fed - the Federal Reserve - is out to get us! (I know that sounds crazy, and I’m often the person backing away from someone at a party saying that exact sentence, but this time it’s true, and I’m not crazy, but I won’t fault you for backing away.)

Things right now are not so great. We’re still gettin’ over a pandemic. Healthcare costs are totally out of control. Everyone’s in debt and hates their job. There aren’t any insects around - which I feel like is a bad sign. And, on top of all that - the only time most Americans feel alive is when they get someone they’ve never met to tell them to go eat a bag of dicks in a comment thread under a video about how to make a delicious kale salad.

Point is – do you ever look around at how fucked up the world is and go, “Well, I hope the Federal Reserve makes things way worse?” Because that’s what they’re doing.

As reported in Common Dreams, “Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said… that the U.S. central bank is ready to inflict ‘pain’ on households as it continues to fight inflation, remarks that drew widespread backlash from experts who warned the Fed appears poised to spark a devastating recession and mass layoffs.” ...And leaked conversations now reveal the real reasons.

Censored News: We Subsidize Big Oil To Help Them Destroy Our Future!
You won't believe these numbers.

By Lee Camp

Eleven million dollars a minute. That’s what we pay… and no I’m not talking about my bill at the Good Vibrations Sex Shoppe. (But I do appreciate when a sex shop spells it “shoppe.” You know, keep it classy. Make you feel like it was founded in the 1500s in England.) 

A report by the IMF shows we spend 11 million dollars a minute on big oil – But I’ll get back to that in a second. 

So we know we’re in a climate crisis now. (Hopefully you know that and if you don’t, then stop licking the bottom of the public pool. That’s not good for you.) Even Bloomberg News – the news of, by, and for people who like to kick the guy shining their shoes – even they admit “Much of the US Will Be an ‘Extreme Heat Belt’ by the 2050s.” “...in three decades, more than 100 million Americans will live in an ‘extreme heat belt’ where at least one day a year, the heat index temperature will exceed 125° Fahrenheit (52° Celsius)...” And, of course, many more days will be a completely unbearable – yet comparatively brisk – 100° Fahrenheit. It’s kinda like how being punched in the face is awful unless you’ve just been pounded in the balls. Then the face seems almost friendly.

This Is Who Owns The World
Why does the mainstream media never mention the entity that owns the world?

by Lee Camp

Who owns the world? Well, I’m about to tell you! Keep your pants on. Now I’m gonna drag out the suspense of who owns the world for this entire article– 

BlackRock! It’s BlackRock!! Damn it! I should have dragged it out longer. 

BlackRock is the largest asset management firm on the planet, and it’s also the name of my mom’s trademark inedible turkey liver sponge cake. But BlackRock is essentially a shadow bank. And I don’t know what a shadow bank is other than what my uncle would always say the Greek guy at his construction job had. (Seemed vaguely racist but I couldn’t put my finger on it.)

But BlackRock is enormous. However big you’re picturing, multiply it by the size of a Toyota Sequoia. (Side note: why are giant suv monster-trucks always named after the thing they kill? “Yeah, I own a Nissan Polar Bear! But I’m thinking of trading it in for a Chevy Our Grandchildren’s Future. It has 18 cup holders and two cub holders for any bear cubs you run over with it.”)

BlackRock literally has more assets than the Gross Domestic Products of every single country except China and the US. So, just for a second, picture India with their 1.4 billion people. BlackRock has more than their annual GDP – Times three! BlackRock holds somewhere around $9 trillion dollars. That’s one tenth of the whole world’s yearly economic activity. 

Here, this will put it in perspective. If you make $60,000 a year - after taxes - you’re doing pretty well. But in order to grab up $9 trillion, you’d need to work for 150 million years. You’d have to work for the entire length of the existence of the dinosaurs! (And that’s if your stegosaurus boss paid you on time - which, you know how they are.) 

And BlackRock is by far the biggest wealth fund or shadow bank in the world. “The grand total of the sovereign wealth funds managed by over 91 such funds across the world is projected to be worth approximately 8.2 trillion US dollars.” That’s right, 91 other such funds don’t have as much as BlackRock has. 

So what do they do with all this money? I’ll tell you what --
