Climate Spares No One. Volcanic Threats in Europe. Relentless Floods in India, Australia 2022
Natural disasters cover more and more areas: storms, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, dust storms and landslides – and this is just the beginning. Seeing the current progression, it is clear that their intensity and power will only increase.
You'll hear about it from eyewitnesses of natural disasters and Breaking News reporters.
In mid-May 2022, heavy rains over several days caused widespread flooding in Queensland, Australia. Unfortunately, there were casualties.

In the consumerist format of society, the mechanisms that would allow victims of natural disasters to return to normal life are not working. Because the question of the value of human life and its safety is not the key one in the consumer society. It is superseded by bureaucracy, greed and corruption.
If we really want to live, we need to unite and create a world in which human life comes first and build the Creative Society without hunger, wars, or any crises.
On May 7, 2022, an epochal event took place on a global scale, which gives everyone the opportunity to learn truthful and objective information about the growing danger of climatic and environmental disasters.
And also about the real causes of what is happening and the real scale of the multiple crises of the consumerist format of society.
