CO2 is harmless

“work together to reduce our carbon impacts”

Why worry about harmless CO2 gas emissions? The UN scientists who drafted the original UN report that created Al Gore’s global warming for-profit enterprise created another report a few years later stating the exact opposite of their original findings?

Don’t be a gullible environmentalist and do the exact opposite of what you stand for and be co-opted by manipulative central bankers. Any eco-movement that seeks to reduce carbon emissions specifically is banker-funded.

You can’t beat poetry and a mosh pit.

My daughter and I made glass ornaments at Viscosity a few years ago. We created heirlooms we will treasure forever. I highly recommend it!
