Environmental activists urge to rename April Fools Day

Environmental activists want to turn April Fools Day into Fossil Fools Day. They claim that there isn’t much to laugh at.

Rising Tide UK, a grassroots network dedicated to building a movement for climate justice, is trying to attract more attention to the problem of root causes of climate change by renaming the day of laughter.

The group is going to launch a “100-actions" campaign across the world to point out the role that fossil fuels play in climate change. The aim is the transition to a non-carbon society, localization of energy, food, and economic systems for future.

In 2006, Rising Tide UK's activities included: actions in solidarity with the Shell to Sea campaign in County Mayo, Ireland; a campaign and counter exhibition called Art Not Oil, dedicated to ending oil companies' sponsorship of the arts; helping to organize the Camp for Climate Action held outside Drax power station in Yorkshire; and supporting a direct action campaign against the massive South Wales Gas Pipeline project.

Rising Tide gives workshops and talks on climate change, supplies educational materials, and also encourages support for non-violent direct action against climate change.

The Trump administration is looking for a replacement for the American military contingent in the north of Syria. If the United States agrees with Saudi Arabia, the situation in the south of the country will become a lot more intense as Iran and Israel stand on the brink of war

Iran strongly determined to fight for Golan Heights

These armchair generals who come on talk shows or give their opinions as to the capabilities of various military weapons systems are doing no more than inflating their own self image and generating circulation for the news agencies

Will Americans sacrifice one of their warships to start a major war?
