How long has this been going on?
"While much of the world has baked in a heat wave this month, new research points to a surprising culprit when it comes to killing us — plants.
A study published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics found that during heat waves, plants tend to absorb less pollution from the air. That puts more people at risk of developing respiratory complications, which can lead to death." -- source
National Geographic should be so ashamed. But I'm sure they are not, since they surely profited from publishing this mind-numbing article. And after all, that's why they are in business, to make a profit, and the public can be damned!
Here we have once again an example of how we are taught to defer to authority and let our critical thinking skills atrophy. Plants are killing us because they aren't absorbing our pollution fast enough. What's wrong with that picture? For the critical thinkers out there, it's obvious. Humans are killing the plants and themselves by creating the pollution in the first place! It makes no sense to blame the plants, but there it is, in print, delivered by no less an authority than National Geographic, a beacon of respectability.
So why blame the plants? Once again, it is all about power and control, deception and manipulation, mind control and slavery. The ruling sociopaths have engineered a system that has us working against our best interests. We pollute as a matter of course, due to the sociopathic system we were born into and accept, even though by polluting we are ultimately harming ourselves and all other living things. The insanity of this system is becoming more and more visible, thus the need to sanitize it with propaganda and disinformation lest the sheeple wake up to their manipulation and revolt. So yeah, the plants are slacking off, and we need to fix that! Pay no attention to the sociopaths behind the curtain.
What do they take us for, idiots?
