We are not the only creatures that need water. Why do humans are so solipsistic? We need to be discussing our overpopulation and not one environmental conference has ever addressed this reality. in fact, governments encourage population growth to increase their tax base.

Interesting podcast. I like to listen to stories related to lawyers. I guess I was very lucky that I found a good lawyer, and now I turn to him with any questions. Btw, he recommended me a great resource https://www.printable-legal-forms.com/as-is-no-warranty-bill-of-sale-template-167/ where I can find any documents that I need, for example, no warranty bill of sale template. Sometimes it's easier to take a ready-made template than to wait for a response from a lawyer.

"We're keeping the oil... I've always said that -- keep the oil. We want to keep the oil, $45 million a month. Keep the oil. We've secured the oil." Donald Trump on Syrian occupation. Biden is continuing Trump's policy of occupation, exploitation, and thievery. "US occupation forces and their mercenaries steal up to 66,000 barrels every single day from the fields occupied in the eastern region.” https://mronline.org/2022/08/16/u-s-troops-loot-84-oil-tankers-from-syria-smuggle-them-into-iraq/
