While wearing green ribbons is a noble attempt to draw attention to a very important cause, it does little to demonstrate the underlying call to action nor address what the fans of a green ribbon wearer can do as individuals to be part of the solution. This petition is to encourage those attending the 88th Academy Awards on Feb 28th, 2016 to raise REAL awareness and be the change they are promoting on their lapel . While Climate Change and subtle gestures makes for great social media headlines, the various issues causing climate change cannot be summarized with a #greenribbon.

In honor of awards season, Real Time host Bill Maher affixed a special ribbon to his lapel and spoke out about an urgent new cause.

“It’s time to raise awareness about a very serious problem: raising awareness,” he cracked in the “New Rules” show-capper, “We raise too much of it, and it’s making us crazy, anxious and depressed. Must we be sad about everything all the time most of which we can’t do everything about?”

A daunting list of diseases and medical conditions are being acknowledged in the month of March, which, he joked, “comes in like a brain injury and goes out like deep-vein thrombosis. This coming week, he reminded his (still limited and socially distanced) audience, is World Salt Awareness Week — “a whole week to be aware of salt.”

Ribbon -wearing, by contrast, has its roots in the counter-culture of the Sixties and Seventies, where national pride was challenged by a growing disaffection with establishment values and traditional institutions, and self-expression superseded collective action in the quest for achievement and meaning in life. The rapid incorporation of this faintly oppositional stance, in relation to the appearance of red AIDS ribbons on the lapel of every respectable politician and the integration of the pink ribbon into everyday fashion designs, is testament to the speed and extent to which disaffection with 'mainstream

About a dozen lawmakers wore purple ribbons at President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday to raise awareness about the country’s growing opioid crisis. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, led the effort to highlight the epidemic , which has hit her state of New Hampshire particularly hard. “This is an important opportunity to send a message that more needs to be done to address this crisis,” Shaheen wrote on Facebook ahead of the address, urging her fellow members of Congress to don the purple ribbons distributed by her office.

A dense thicket of ribbons, flags, ads and hashtags, Maher said, has grown around this glut of misguided cause advocacy. People have become “so aware of every bad thing that could happen that we’ve completely run out of colors,” he lamented. Maher said used to like purple, but now that he’s been told it represents Alzheimer’s, lupus and the opioid epidemic, “it scares the sh-t out of me.”

Pink, Maher continued, has infiltrated a number of corners of society as a beacon of attention for breast cancer. The color can be found everywhere from the office supply aisles of Staples to drill bits for fracking (that not a joke, and it’s a product which Maher noted “is probably giving us cancer”).

Most famously, the NFL signed on several years ago to turn player cleats, field markings and coaches’ hats bright pink every October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. After going “on the record” as being against breast cancer, Maher despaired, “I’m trying to escape for a few hours – can’t I watch the game without thinking about cancer?! We’ve all heard about it. It’s like raising awareness for death.” Here, he imagined one unenlightened soul having his awareness raised. ‘Hey, what’s that black ribbon for? ‘Death’ ‘What’s that?’ ‘It’s when you’re not alive anymore. Would you like to hear more?!”

And in honor of the tens of thousands of children who’ve fallen victim to these liability-free vaccines, thousands of vaccine truth advocates are gathering on the National Mall in Washington, DC, to raise awareness about vaccine risks, as well as to pay homage to those whose lives have been destroyed by vaccines. Organized by a non-profit group called “CrazyMothers,” VIE is aimed at raising awareness about the fact that CDC-recommended vaccines are not as safe and effective as government officials claim they are.

By bringing awareness to these threats, we can help to reverse them before it is too late. Soy Farming and Cattle Ranching. Soy is often seen as a healthy choice, however many farmers are cutting down the forests to make room for more soy fields. Scientists, along with journalists have been gaining important and valuable knowledge of what actually happens in these tropical rainforests. With the help of modern technology, conservationists, scientists and environmentalists are able to monitor the happenings of the forest and find better ways to reap the benefits as well as develop new tools to

One culprit, Maher has concluded wasn’t a particular color but a very specific item in every kitchen: milk. “Someone in the ’80s looked at a milk carton and said, ‘What a waste, not using milk as a vehicle for missing children to plead with you to put down that shredded wheat and get out there and crack my cold case!'”

Budweiser, Maher ranted, pulled out of advertising on the Super Bowl and redirected the budget for advertising to “raising awareness of Covid — which I’m pretty aware of! Hey, Budweiser — you weren’t put on Earth to raise awareness. You were put on Earth to lower it.”

Airline crew members, he went on, now wear Black Lives Matter pins throughout flights on some airlines. “Can I just get a rum and coke and hold the white guilt trip until we land?”

Ribbons and all of the other signals, Maher said, are “not there to make me think, so much as to raise awareness of what a good person you are. This is to activism what putting a flag on your car is to patriotism.”

Bill Maher Delightfully Mocks Tucker Carlson's Fox News Rants About Race .
During "New Rules" at the end of Friday's "Real Time," Bill Maher took a brief break from the segment's usual rants to slip in a pretty hilarious insult against Fox News Host Tucker Carlson — by pretty much just accurately summing up Carlson's whole schtick. The joke was that one of the "New Rules" topics was a matter of absolutely pointless trivia, but Maher acted as though it was an issue of epic importance. Here's how it went down.
