Climate Crisis! Mexican Heatwave Claims Lives of Howler Monkeys (and Humans)

Originally published at:

In Mexico, a severe heatwave has taken a toll on both human and animal populations, with at least 138 howler monkeys in Tabasco succumbing to heatstroke and dehydration. The extreme temperatures, peaking at 45 degrees Celsius, have not only affected the wildlife but also led to 26 human fatalities since March. The howler monkeys, a species emblematic of the region, have suffered due to a combination of high heat, drought, and environmental degradation, highlighting the alleged broader impact of climate change on ecosystems. Efforts are underway to rescue and rehabilitate the affected animals, with the federal government stepping in to support recovery initiatives. This crisis is mirrored by the breaking of temperature records in several cities, exacerbating water shortages and power outages, and purportedly underscoring the urgent need for climate action.

In the financial world, Sprott Asset Management has announced the launch of the Sprott Physical Copper Trust, a novel investment vehicle aimed at those interested in the copper market. The trust, which will invest directly in physical copper, offers a convenient alternative to traditional investment methods, with units priced at US$10.00. The initiative, backed by several major financial institutions and advised by WMC Energy B.V., underscores the growing interest in commodities as both a hedge against inflation and a bet on future economic growth. However, potential investors are cautioned to consider the risks and consult with financial advisors, reflecting the complex and speculative nature of commodity investments.

Turning to historical analysis, recent discussions have revisited the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy, shedding light on the intricate web of political and corporate interests that may have influenced these events. Books such as “JFK and the Unspeakable” and “The Devil’s Chessboard” delve into the concept of an American “deep state,” suggesting that an unelected coalition of corporate, banking, intelligence, and military officials has exerted a profound and often covert influence on U.S. policy. The motivations behind the Kennedy assassinations are examined through the lens of their opposition to certain aggressive CIA operations and their push for peace and disarmament, challenging the narrative of lone gunmen and suggesting a broader conspiracy. This analysis not only revisits historical events but also prompts a reflection on the power dynamics that continue to shape U.S. politics and foreign policy.
