TMI 11/12/2021 – How the USA Uses “Climate Finance” Ambiguity to Not Pay for Climate Crisis Agreements, How We Face Either a New Dark Ages or a New Enlightenment, More

At the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) climate conference, there’s been a renewed call to have “climate finance” defined in such a way that keeps things like loans out of the picture. After all, “climate finance” is the funding put forward to help nations that need assistance to help them become greener, and if it includes (via ambiguity) such things as predatory loans or comes with strings attached, it discourages those we want to ENCOURAGE to adapt. Worse, it gives the loaning countries the expectation that what they “spend” on climate finance will actually come back to them, leaving less actual revenue put towards the effort than the manipulated numbers tell.

Then, we explore how financial desperation is fueling fear and ignorance globally, and how we are doomed to a dark age… unless we can succeed in bringing about a new enlightenment! All this and much more on TMI for Friday, November 12, 2021 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media.

TMI 01/01/2021 – New Year’s Predictions for 2030, Why We Love Grifters and Ted Cruz is Scum

Continuing a tradition done on TMI first on the 1/1/2011 episode, we are not going to do a Year in Review, but rather we are going to do a decade in review for 2021-2030: checking in with expert opinion on where we can expect to be in 2030 and how we can get there! Why not review the future? We’ve already BEEN through the past! Next, we have a sincere look at why we’re fascinated by grifters; people who play on our trust of our fellow human beings for their own benefit, often at our loss. Despite that, we can’t get enough tales of how they operate. Finally, we see that Ted Cruz and so many others have been honing their griftcraft over the upcoming Georgia Senate runoff elections, sending out ads and emails, fundraising while proclaiming they need to protect the Senate… without much (or even ANY) of the funds raised going to the Georgia races. All that and more for TMI’s first episode of 2021 – listen in for your Cure for the Common Media!
