    I realize that, it just seems pretty dirty. Iíve worked at other places that had a post-accident testing program in place but only under reasonable suspicion.

  3. Yeah, that's ridiculous. You're not operating heavy equipment.

    I mean, itís logical for them to have a procedure in place (within reason) because I am dealing with knives, very hot things, and zipping around in confined spaces filled with other people but even going to work baked (which I donít) is probably not making a person dangerous. Thereís also the fact that a typical piss test for marijuana doesnít really tell you much other than if a person has used it anywhere from a week to two months prior. Iím sure itís not going to happen any time soon but terminating employees for a failed test involving marijuana outside of any reasonable context should not be legal or at least have some legal guidelines. A large portion of the general population is at least an occasional casual user (especially in a blue collar/service industry line of work). In this case, itís a clear example of people with lots of money figuring out ways to get out of their legal obligations to their employees (who are people that do not have lots of money) and could easily be life ruining if someone was severely injured at work and was unable to continue working for a long period of time or even permanently.

    Thinking about global warming.

    I still dont get why the wealthy and powerful dont care about it. It can invalidate everything they are doing. Disrupt their business and kill their children and their children's children.

    Why would you not deal with it?

    That's not really how it works.

    Climate change will eventually impact and destroy industry, supply chain, and buyers.

    There is evidence that the real reason the US got into ww2 was that Germany was negatively impacting global supply chains. We got our shit together then, why not now? Are we going to wait for this shit to take out major ports on the west coast?

    Because the people it hits hardest: brown people, poor people, and brown and poor people in non western countries have never been anything the ruling class cares about. Climate change isnít just this light switch that will all of a sudden leave earth unlivable - thereís a lot of scare click bait articles that makes it sound like all of western civilization will be wiped out like that movie 2012. Thatís not how it will go. Itís subtle and slow. The effects have already displaced tons of people, but itís not like Thanos snaps his fingers and theyíre gone. They migrate, they adapt, and many end up living in refugee camps - and the rich donít care. Those in rich countries in the global north may never experience anything more than a slight change in temperature when they walk from their cars to office. It doesnít effect them because they can afford to blot out the minimal effects that *they* will see.

    For instance, in Bangladesh, hundreds of thousands of people are uprooted from their living situations due to flooding conditions becoming more violent. These people have already had their lives altered irreparably. But Joe Billionaire living in Silicon Valley? Yeah, okay, it gets a little warmer here in the summer. But overall life and livelihood isnít threatened. So, people ignore it. It wonít disrupt their business because the global south doesnít have the money to support their business anyway. It wonít disrupt their lives because even if say, a fire did devour their home, insurance would cover it and they would just reroute to one of their other homes. The rich donít see it as a threat, because to them itís not a real one.
