If coffee were priced FAIRLY, RESPONSIBLY, SUSTAINABLY, it would cost only $0.07 more / cup IF it were produced using agro-ecological (ie pretty darned sustainable) methods.
If it was farmed using conventional techniques, like those dominant now, it would cost $0.12 more. So.. er.. what the fuck are we waiting for exactly?
Great fucking fact from True Price

In Britain, 98% of us buy their energy from just six energy suppliers. We think that must be right, because.. well because 98% of us are doing it. We’re wrong.

If you do – and forgive me, there’s no way to sugar-coat this – you are funding fracking. Which is to say your money is polluting water supplies and aquifers, destroying landscapes, and making a few people rich. Meanwhile, and more importantly, it’s NOT being invested in renewable energy supplies. Any fracked gas WILL run out before you die. The sun / wind / rain / tides will be here for another 4+ billion years.
Here’s a site which helps you switch. It takes only 3 minutes and you don’t need meter readings or account numbers. www.unfrack.me
These spineless little fuckers just failed not just every American, but every human being who would rather not be shot. So if you have a gun and some time on your hands it would seem that justice might be served if they all happened to be shot in the next 6 months? Not killed, you understand, just shot where it would cripple them for a few years.
Then let’s vote again and see how it turns out.
We must remember our duty to Nature before it is too late. That duty is constant. It is never completed. It lives on as we breathe. It endures as we eat and sleep, work and rest, as we are born and as we pass away.
