RIO DE JANEIRO — Residents of a high-end neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro woke up to the unpleasant smell of 13 tons of rotting dead fish floating in the city’s Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon.
Biologists believe that the extreme heat caused by El Nino killed the fish overnight and caused them to wash ashore Friday.
The lagoon played host to several events during the 2016 Olympic games and is a tourist attraction.
Rio’s environment ministry released a statement saying that it has been on alert since Thursday morning when oxygen levels in the body of water began to fall sharply.
Biologist and ecosystem specialist Mario Moscatelli says that he inspects the lagoon every year and is convinced that climate change is causing temperature increases.

Billionaires Are the Leading Cause of Climate Change

As the world faces environmental disaster on a biblical scale, it’s important to remember exactly who brought us here.


This week, the United Nations released a damning report. The short version: We have about 12 years to actually do something to prevent the worst aspects of climate change. That is, not to prevent climate change—we're well past that point—but to prevent the worst, most catastrophic elements of it from wreaking havoc on the world's population. To do that, the governments of Earth need to look seriously at the forces driving it. And an honest assessment of how we got here lays the blame squarely at the feet of the 1 percent.
Contrary to a lot of guilt-tripping pleas for us all to take the bus more often to save the world, your individual choices are probably doing very little to the world's climate. The real impact comes on the industrial level, as more than 70 percent of global emissions come from just 100 companies. So you, a random American consumer, exert very little pressure here. The people who are actively cranking up the global thermostat and threatening to drown 20 percent of the global population are the billionaires in the boardrooms of these companies.

Humans aren't causing change.

You should know by now that it's dogma. Dogma you've wasted 70+ years trying to escape.
