Greta Thunberg Triggers Praise and Fear

Vegas Strip

Polar caps are melting, ocean levels are rising, the Amazon is burning—climate change is real and Mother Earth and Greta Thunberg are screaming at us for help. But why do we freeze while the planet boils? Why do we fear a sixteen-year-old girl in pigtails as we applaud big industries switching to renewable energy resources? A few years ago, the city of Las Vegas announced that all their municipal buildings and facilities would be powered by renewable energy. The news was met with excitement and inspired the brightly-lit Strip to increase their own efforts to go green. But as we cheer on the casinos’ renewable energy plans, we hesitate to stand up with Greta Thunberg. Across the globe, her message has been received with praise and awe, but also with a great deal of fear, resentment, hate, and worst of all, inaction.

US Intervention in the Present Venezuelan Crisis

Nicolás Maduro

The United States continues to ramp up pressure on the beleaguered Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, and has just announced new targeted sanctions which are due to take effect from April, 2019. Previous measures were designed to impact upon certain government personnel and a limited number of economic areas. But, as the reports, this latest move singles out the country’s oil sector and the state-owned company PDVSA in an action which will threaten the source of 90% of the present Venezuelan government’s revenues. What does the White House hope to achieve? The US believes that Venezuela’s socio-economic and political crisis is largely due to economic mismanagement by successive Venezuelan regimes. For Venezuelans, this has created issues such as a healthcare crisis and prompted large-scale migration to neighbouring South American countries.
