Think your Hybrid vehicle doesn’t have Negative Environmental Impacts? Think again!

Overview:

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) use multiple power sources to fuel movement. HEVs are powered by a combination of gasoline or diesel along with an electric battery that charges while the car is on. While the car reduces total gas mileage and emissions, there are still many potential environmental problems associated with it.

Lie:  Hybrid cars are much better for the environment. “The current generation of hybrid cars use nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, unlike conventional cars, which use lead-acid batteries. Lead, like all heavy metals, is a major pollutant, whereas nickel is not.”–Caterina Nelson

Negative Environmental Impacts

Electricity Sources for PHEVs

Plugging in your car to charge it does not mean you’re necessarily using clean energy. Every city and state produces electric power through diverse energy sources. According to a study by Ohio State University, “If your city’s or state’s power grid is fueled with coal or oil, you may end up emitting as much or more pollution as a traditional vehicle in order to power your car.”

Hybrids Aren’t Emission-Free

Hybrid cars do not reduce as much smog-forming emissions in the environment as people may presume. A 2004 report by the Connecticut General Assembly, stated, “When comparing a traditional compact car to its hybrid counterpart, you can expect emissions to be reduced by approximately 10 percent.” Therefore, hybrid cars still contribute to air pollution.

Consider the Batteries

Traditional vehicles use lead-acid batteries. Lead is a toxic chemical that, when released into the environment, can cause lasting damage. Most HEVs and PHEVs use nickel-hydride and lithium-ion batteries which were thought to be better for the environment. Sadly, this belief is not true. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, nickel is a likely human poison, and wrongly disposing of nickel-hydride batteries can pose an environmental danger.

More Heavy Metals

In addition to using nickel in some HEV and PHEV batteries, HEVs and PHEVs use huge amounts of copper in in various parts of their machinery such as their electric drive motors and wiring. Copper must be mined either from open pits or underground mines in a way that can essentially lead to environmental degradation. The University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne’s Illinois Sustainable Technology Center found that copper mining contributes to air emissions of several metals and sulfuric acid. Open pit mining comprises the stripping and removing of surface grasses, trees and dirt to unearth the deposits of minerals.

High-Voltage Wiring

Hybrid vehicles may have potential safety problems. The electric mechanisms of the vehicle that make it so fuel-efficient also mean that the engine has high-voltage wiring. Hybrid Cars.org fears that if the car happened to get into a crash and some wires are open, emergency personnel or other individuals at the crash site may get electrocuted.

There is a cure but they’ll NEVER let you have it!

Lie:

The American Cancer Society has been leading the way to transform cancer from deadly to preventable.

Truth Be Told:

The American Cancer Society has been successful in using its money to treat cancer, keeping people sick, not curing the disease. In that way, the company stays wealthy.

Imagine a plane crashed and some people died. You can be sure that would make the headline of every major newspaper. Well, we have the equivalent of 8-10 planes crashing EVERY DAY with everyone on board dying from cancer.

Nearly two million Americans are diagnosed with some form of cancer every year—1 of 3 people will be hit with a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives, even after the enormous technological advances made over the past half-century.

Western medicine is no closer to finding a “cancer cure” either. Cancer has grown into a worldwide epidemic. Here are some statistics:

In the early 1900s, one in 20 people developed cancer

In the 1940s, one in 16 people developed cancer

In the 1970s, one in 10 developed cancer

Today, one in three!

bbbbb

So the question remains; if overall death rates are decreasing, why are occurrence rates still on the rise? The answer is simple: the 40-year “war on cancer” has been a sham.

The cancer epidemic is great for Big Pharma. Their movements to silence cancer cures have been aggressive and successful.

The Cancer Engine

“People must understand that cancer is big business. The cancer industry is spending virtually nothing of its multi-billion dollar resources on effective prevention strategies, such as dietary guidelines, exercise and obesity education. Instead, it pours its money into treating cancer, not preventing or curing it.”

Think about it …Why would cancer industries shoot their cash cow? If they can their Cancer Engine running, they will continue to make huge profits on chemotherapy drugs, radiotherapy, diagnostic procedures and surgeries.

cash-cow

The typical cancer patient spends roughly around $50,000 fighting the disease. Chemotherapy drugs are some of the most expensive of all treatments, ranging from $3,000 to $7,000 for just a one-month supply. If the cancer industry lets out a cure, then their patient base is no longer. Therefore, it makes more sense to keep cancer patients alive, but sick and coming back for more drugs.

So how did this societal monster start?

In the early 1900s, the pharmaceutical industry partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA) in a clever plan to overtake the medical system in three easy steps.

Step #1- International bankers that own the drug companies gained control over the medical education system.

Step #2- They gave contributions to the AMA and leading medical schools in exchange for seats on their board so that they may have control over policies.

Step #3- They ingeniously wangled their control of basically every federal regulatory agency involving any practice of medicine.

‘Don’t You DARE Cure Anyone!’

Fact: One study estimated that chemotherapy benefits about one of every 20 people receiving it.

Can you believe —> Over the last hundred years, a number of natural cancer treatments have been developed and used successfully to treat patients in the US and other countries around the world. However, all treatments and the people who developed them have been fervently discounted, silenced, and hidden by the medical monopoly. These doctors and researchers have been attacked, sent to prison, and professionally ruined for daring and being brave enough to defy the medical establishment.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America

Founder: Margaret Higgins Sanger (September 14, 1879 – September 6, 1966)

margaret

What people know: Sanger was an American birth control activist, sex educator, and nurse. Sanger spread the term birth control, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established organizations that later became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. In New York City, she organized the first birth control clinic staffed by all-female doctors, as well as a clinic in Harlem with an entirely African-American staff.

What people don’t know: Sanger believed that lighter-skinned races were superior to darker-skinned races, and admitted to speaking at KKK rallies.

Margaret Sanger and KKK

In her efforts to promote birth control, Sanger found common cause with supporters of eugenics, believing that they both sought to “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.”

Sanger was an advocate of negative eugenics, which goal is to improve human hereditary traits through social intervention by decreasing reproduction by those considered “unfit”.

Sanger’s Ugly Legacy:

Planned Parenthood Federation of America

Planned Parenthood “believes”:

  • In the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence.
  • The reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy.
  • This self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.

Lie:

Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide.

Truths:

  • Abortion Increases Where Clinics Are Located
  • 94% Are Located in Predominantly Black Urban Areas, where black women live, according to Dr. LaVerne Tolbert, former Planned Parenthood Board Member.
  • In her own African American neighborhood in California, Tolbert says, there are three strategically placed abortion clinics all in the same area.
  • Abortion is the Civil Rights Issue of the 21st Century.” Dr. Alveda King
  • Black children are aborted at 3 times the rate of any other population.

mapofclinics

“In fact, black children are aborted at three times the rate of all other populations,” according to Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach for Georgia Right to Life. In Georgia, black people make up only 30% of the population, but 57% of the abortions. Georgia is number one in the country for reported abortions performed on black women.

Did you know?

On February 17, national black leaders are joining a two-party group of black and white Georgia legislators with the purpose to end what is being called “the ugliest form of racism: Abortion.” That’s right, they want to end it, not make it safe and legal.

Civil rights leaders didn’t fight to make hanging and all forms of execution safe and legal, they terminated it. Every civil rights movement made in education, voting and equality holds no meaning to a dead black child.

Healthcare Crisis: Medicare

Medicare’s Mission Statement: “To ensure effective, up-to-date health care coverage and to promote quality care for beneficiaries.”

medicare1

This mission statement has fallen short in its delivery.

Case #1:

Tom, a decorated war veteran of World War II had a heart transplant. Medicare covered the transplant and paid for the first year of medications. However, neither his supplementary insurance nor Medicare covered any of the medications after the first year. He has struggled continuously paying for the medications since then and now can no longer afford them. Tom feels he proudly served his country in war; why isn’t it taking care of him?

Medicareveteran

Truth: The government does not want to pay for medications people need in order to live. In 1999, medications cost the government $213 billion, or 12 percent of the federal budget.

Prescription Drug Coverage

“Sometimes we do share drugs because I can’t get the samples or it’s just too costly.”

doctordollars

The security of prescription drug coverage significantly affects whether or not people are able to take their medication as prescribed. Some people are just not able to afford the medication they need.

Truth: We live in America, yet we are not able to see a doctor unless we have insurance that covers and if we cannot afford to pay for our expensive medications, we might just die and well… that’s just tough.

For the past several years, out-of-pocket spending on prescription drugs has been on the rise.

In 1999, Medicare recipients spent approximately $400 out-of-pocket on drugs. That number is only increasing. The seniors who can’t afford to pay for their medications often don’t fill necessary prescriptions, or they take their medicine irregularly which can be dangerous and deadly.

Empty-Pockets

Also, what is known as “Original” Medicare, does not cover the cost of prescription drugs outside the hospital which means that more than a third of Medicare receivers lack coverage for outpatient prescription drugs.

People paying for their medications as individuals cannot take advantage of discounted rates. If their insurance policy does not cover medications they are required to take, most go without taking the medications because, let’s face it, it’s just too expensive, especially if refills are mandatory.

Never Trust a Clown

The McDonald’s Corporation is the world’s biggest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants. It serves around 68 million customers every day in 119 different countries worldwide and employs more than 1.7 million people.

mcdonalds

In 2012, McDonald’s Corporation had annual revenues of $27.5 billion, and profits of $5.5 billion.

McDonald’s Missions and Values:

Lie #1:“We place the customer experience at the core of all we do. Our customers are the reason for our existence. We demonstrate our appreciation by providing them with high quality food and superior service in a clean, welcoming environment, at a great value. Our goal is quality, service, cleanliness and value for each and every customer, each and every time.”

Lie #2:“We operate our business ethically. Sound ethics is good business. At McDonald’s, we hold ourselves and conduct our business to high standards of fairness, honesty, and integrity. We are individually accountable and collectively responsible.”

How do we know these statements to be false? They’ve proved it.

evilheithclown

This industry giant continues to prosper as it poisons Americans and countries around the world with its unhealthy and fattening foods. Using advertising tactics to lure in children, McDonalds is to blame for most of child obesity existing in America. Junk food marketing contributes to an epidemic of childhood obesity that is still on the rise.

Child obesity

An Australian study reported that more than half of 9-10 year old children believe that Ronald McDonald knows what is best for them to eat. This report was taken at a time when the World Health Organization came to the realization that rates of obesity are increasing at an alarming rate in both children and adults.

“Brazil has a simple message for McDonald’s: Stop luring our kids to the golden arches with shiny toys, just to hit them with fatty foods once they arrive.”

????????????

Why do people still choose to eat something they know is so unhealthy for them?

  • Inexpensive
  • Convenient

Super Size Me is a 2004 American documentary about a man who chooses to eat only McDonald’s food for 30-days. Upon reaching the 30-day mark, his physical and psychological well-being takes a turn for the worst. The documentary also exposes the fast food industry’s corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit.
