Anyone who spends even the shortest amount of time on Twitter can instantly recognize how diplomatic Leonardo DiCaprio’s tweets are about the pressing need for immediate climate action, biodiversity restoration through rewilding, and the dangerous deforestation in the Amazon that not only threatens the survival of endangered wildlife, a cause very dear to DiCaprio’s heart, but also the survival of the entire human species.

Bitcoin’s Huge Carbon Footprint Is Destroying Environment

Washington (GGM) Analysis | April 17, 2022 by Attorney Michael Wells

Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “Let China sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world.” China poses military, economic, social, and environmental threats to the entire world. Yet, with the myriad threats it poses, one threat it has awakened, Bitcoin, threatens to shake — and possibly destroy — the environment. Although Bitcoin requires the most advanced computers performing dizzying calculations, it needs unfathomable amounts of energy, and that energy comes primarily from fossil fuels in China, namely coal.

Washington (GGM) Analysis | April 17, 2022 by Sarah J. Kings

Historically, the arctic and the antarctic are polar opposites and never experience the same weather conditions at the same time. That is until Friday, February 18, 2022, when this scientific fact melted and a new mind-blowing phenomenon burst into existence. The Arctic reached 50 degrees above normal, while temperatures in Antartica skyrocketed as high as 70 degrees above normal. The simultaneous heating of both poles at the same time has never happened before, which shocked scientists.

2022 Mustang Mach-E and Ford Promise Plan

Washington (GGM) Analysis | March 2, 2022 by Sarah J. Kings

Many eco-conscious consumers are looking to electric vehicles, EVs, to help combat the climate crisis. EV’s are responsible for much lower emissions than their gas-powered counterparts, and they cost less overall to maintain and drive. Still, with starting prices ranging from $29,000 to upwards of $100,000- depending on the make and model- some people may be hesitant to switch to electric as economic concerns grow.

The Trillion Tree Campaign was announced in January 2020 at the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos 2020. This bold initiative grew from the Billion Tree Campaign launched in 2006 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This valiant vision, which will hopefully motivate all nations around the world to participate, has already inspired 193 countries into action, planting 13.6 billion trees. Amazing results, but we’re still a long way off target.

“Dr. Mindy, can I be vulnerable in your car?” | Don’t Look Up

Washington (GGM) Analysis | December 20, 2021, by Noreen Wise, Founder & CEO of Gallant Gold Media, and author 

All true things said in jest, right? That was certainly my impression when I checked out Don’t Look Up on December 10, 2021. This timely film is an ink blot test, which becomes abundantly clear when scrolling through the majority of mainstream media reviews. You’ll quickly discover that most are nothing more than defensive ambushes against Adam McKay, (writer, producer and director of Don’t Look Up), and his star-studded cast, with the trademark fossil fuel maniacal thumbprint.

The severe chain of tornadoes that ravaged eight states on December 10, 2021, touching down in 30 separate locations, opened our eyes to the new normal that we’ve thrust ourselves into after breaking through the boundaries that human civilization has existed within for more than 10,000 years.
