Palestinians on Thursday replanted hundreds of trees in the occupied West Bank, a day after Israel’s army uprooted thousands of trees in the area, saying they had been illegally planted in a military zone : worldnews


“While the sage Choni was walking along a road, he saw a man planting a carob tree. Choni asked him: “How long will it take for this tree to bear fruit?” “Seventy years,” replied the man. Choni then asked: “Are you so healthy a man that you expect to live that length of time and eat its fruit?” The man answered: “I found a fruitful world because my ancestors planted it for me. Likewise, I am planting for my children.” (TB. Taanit 23a)

Reality ‘Starting to Sink In,’ Says McKibben, After European Investment Bank Chief Admits ‘Gas Is Over’ : worldnews


If you want evidence of how biased CommonDreams is, check out the comments by EurActiv, and compare them to the quote at the very top of the article by Greenpeace EU.

EA quote:

The EU aims to reach net zero emissions by 2050 and is expected to adopt a new carbon reduction target of -55% for 2030. However, gas has remained a grey area, with the  European Commission saying it will still be needed to help coal-reliant EU member states transition away from fossil fuels.

Quote at the top of the article:

There’s nothing clean about gas—it’s not a ‘transition fuel’ or a ‘bridge fuel,’ it’s a dirty fossil fuel just like coal and oil,” said Greenpeace EU.

These two quote are not analogous. New oil and gas ventures are dead, but the existing ones will remain for a while as we transition to carbon neutral energy. IE … gas is a transition fuel. That is the reality no matter how much Greenpeace and CommonDreams try to will their alternative narritive into existence.
