Values And Principles For a Sustainable Future

@earthcharter http://www.earthcharterinaction.org/content/

An extraordinarily diverse, global network of people, organizations, and institutions that participate in promoting and implementing the values and principles of the Earth Charter. In Preparation for United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development,  4-6 June 2012  http://www.uncsd2012.org/rio20/  SEE @UN_Rioplus20

Get Involved !

Mission: The mission of the Earth Charter Initiative is to promote the transition to sustainable ways of living and a global society founded on a shared ethical framework that includes respect and care for the community of life, ecological integrity, universal human rights, respect for diversity, economic justice, democracy, and a culture of peace.

Read the Charter

We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace. Towards this end, it is imperative that we, the peoples of Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations.   VIDEO: Money and Life – Ecologize Growth http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=2473

‘CHANGE IS UPON US AND CHANGE WE MUST”

by @pdjmoo February 21, 2012 (Revisited December 29, 2018)

(NOTE From @pdjmoo This was written sometime back and is well worth revisiting.  It’s still True Today – even more so – as we have dug ourselves deeper into the mire. There is little to revise)

We Live in the 21st Century – New models for Life Are Demanded

A new paradigm is forming on planet earth requiring a fundamental awareness, consciousness and behavioral shift on the part of humanity. Many of the old structures, models and strategies of the past no longer work and are rapidly disintegrating and self-destructing. Our old “patriarchal” hierarchy power structures — of world political, financial, business, economic, education, social and relationship models and systems — have run their course. Neither science nor technology alone can fix this–neither can throwing money at the chaos we have created.

We must honestly address the very causes and have the courage to look afresh at everything — and change. The pairs of opposites are in full play and are giving us a good whip-lashing, creating both stagnation and fresh new sprouts of hope at the same time. While the entire global system is stagnating and polarizing, the old military industrial guard is battling it out, desperately trying everything to maintain the status quo, leading us into a potentially devastating end…The Perfect Storm…a combined Economic, Social and Environmental collapse.  But life is not stagnant.

Shifting From a Patriarchal To An Earth Centrist Paradigm

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Shifting-from-a-Patriarcha-by-Anthony-J-Gerst-Earth-Policy-Institute_Existentialism_Gaia_Paradigm-Shifts-140816-107.html

Women, Youth and Indigenous Peoples are Rising

A Revolution is Upon Us. Not one stone will remain unturned as we examine the very fundamentals of life 

Women, indigenous people and youth are rising all around the world, bringing a fresh and different perspective, and must be welcomed into the decision-making circle for 21st Century renewal. Emerging and developing nations are demanding an equal seat at the table and this we must do, regardless of our tribe, current societal delineations of race, color, religion or economic/education/political status.  We will have to drop the sides of the old labeled box(es) we have been living out of so that new, more wholesome, interconnected life systems can arise.

We are engaging a new era where, for the first time in human history, we humans are consciously witnessing and participating in our own evolution and revolution. Those caught in the western mindset are, in fact, moving from a collective global adolescence of “I” –  instant, short-term gratification and control/power over – into a maturation process of “We”, where one extends a sense of responsibility for, and support of, all living things.  Both women and men will play new and differing roles, freeing up energies tied to past and often debilitating belief systems.

Restoring respect and dignity to both humanity and environment is now imperative if we are to survive as a species … and this cannot be accomplished by moving the same old pieces around the same old worn out chess board.  Neither will plugging holes in the old system succeed. The old paradigm must give way to the new, releasing it’s grip and attachment to its model that is strangling us and the planet. 

This new paradigm is about integrating the incoming “matriarchal” qualities demanding restoration, balance, nurturing, compassion, collaboration, community, self-responsibility and inclusiveness be included into the mix of life.  Both the emerging and developing nations will come forth with fresh approaches, requiring the honing of our listening skills and attention.  The West does not have all the answers. Indeed its hubris has played a major role in leading us to this brink. We need to honor and respect (and celebrate) differing cultures as we search for the new common denominators among us from which to relate beyond the thrust to “McDonalidize” our global society.  We are all in the process of evolving in our various ways, at different paces, that cannot be confined to mathematical equations.

20th century business isn’t fit for 21st century economics. This shift will not be easy and many will fall by the wayside. There will be many missteps along the way, as new technologies, systems and models come and go, realigning our priorities and common values.

Tomorrow’s market leaders have new DNA. A new type of leadership will emerge beyond the existing patriarchal model.  In the short-term we may regress out of fear of the unknown, closing ranks, grasping at myopic solutions driven by egos, profit and fear and perhaps even moving toward an authoritarian or totalitarian government, but ultimately we must surrender into the greater whole for the wisdom needed to move into the new paradigm of awareness for the greater collective good of ALL species.

There is no road map for where we are going and we will have to remain flexible, alert and responsible in our experimentation.  Indeed,  there are positive signs that this exploration is already underway within the business community  We have the ability to turn fear into adventure, re-experiencing the wonder and awe of the magnificence of life on planet earth, as we explore the myriad of new horizons and possibilities, working together to find collective solutions for the re-nurturing of life, putting the restoration of the environment front and center for, Without Nature, We Do Not Exist.

Nature IS the common denominator among all living things

We have objectified ALL of life for profit and gain, reducing even you and me to a dollar figure on a balance sheet, and the same with our animals in the food chain. Contemporary agriculture is burning up our planet . It must change – it cannot sustain if we are to live healthy, thriving lives alongside our fellow symbiotic species honoring their myriad of roles to maintain planetary balance. All species are equal in their own right.

We have a herculean task ahead.  Revising our sources of energy, food and housing into harmony with Nature, not “raping” “poisoning” and exhausting Her.  Bringing the sense of “community” back into our lives by harmonizing with the needs of Nature and drawing from Her sustainable, renewable resources that benefit all species; renewable energies; local food production; restoring the health of our soils and forests; embracing the loss of balance in our natural world – species loss, deforestation, ocean depletion.

We have to stop escaping into new tantalizing, quick fix ideas to avoid dealing with the actual causes of our chaos that we have wrought upon ourselves.  Fish Farms are no answer to ceasing over fishing.  Dumping our waste into the womb of Mother Earth is no answer to reducing the waste in the first place. Mining, gouging and polluting Mother Earth for her finite resources, such as coal and oil and gas is no answer to working with Nature with her renewable, infinite energy of the sun.

The entire capitalistic system, with its’ addictive lust for profit and power, has to give way to a more all inclusive, equitable approach for all species, for WITHOUT NATURE WE DO NOT EXIST/

A new agreed upon baseline and set of Guiding Principles and Values for our actions and decisions will have to evolve to ensure we keep our eyes on the greater whole, such as:  “Will this harm humanity or the environment”.  If the answer is “Yes”, then back to the drawing board with our brilliant organic minds.  Why Are Google and Sony Turning to Nature to Inspire Their Leaders? 

Who Owns Nature? Wholesome food, clean drinking water and shelter are common survival denominators and all come from our natural world and all of which we need to nurture and share.  Nature is not a proprietary item.   “NATURE, INC?” 

We can no longer treat our natural world and humanity simply as a statistical item, plundering and raping the very ecosystems we, and all species, depend upon for survival. “Beyond Homo Economicus“.    This desecration of life has led to such a planetary societal and biosphere imbalance that we now face drastic changing climate;  the emptying of our oceans  combined with biodiversity and species disappearing at an alarming rate. and increasing economic/social tensions. The sum total of which is total disaster for life on planet earth. (See: The Earth Charter Initiative )

The Great Awakening has Arrived

SUMMARY

The present old centuries-past polarized system with its current misguided value systems (designed entirely by men it should be noted) has become the anti-thesis of life.  The private club era of “It’s A Man’s World” and the military industrial complex mindset has reached its zenith and is imploding. It has become devoid of ethics and morals, without an organic component of compassion and caring for life. Corporations, for better or worse, now hold the purse strings and run the world, our politics, our governments, and you and me through consumerism. We have lost our way.  We have commodified life to a point where big industry now writes our laws in their own self-interest.

The game today, with some exceptions, is to make as much money as you can, as fast as you can, anyway you can with little or no genuine concern for the devastation left in its’ wake. ‘Earth Grab’: What mega corporations who profit from climate change don’t want the public to know  Fear, domination and manipulation will escalate in its lust for control, before it subsides. But, ultimately, it must soften and morph with the new energy and awareness rapidly emerging on the planet.

The longer we struggle to maintain old structures and old ways of relating that brought us to this brink, the harder and more painful it will be.  We cannot put humpty-dumpty back together with old paradigm structures and models if we want a different result.

When the last fish is gone, the last tree felled, we cannot eat money or drink oil.  If Nature and the environment collapses there will be no jobs, no economy, and societies will crumble.  We must put Nature front and center in all our decisions, for we are an integral species within the greater biosphere whole, not separate from it.

In simple terms, we must restore our natural world to balance and health and, in so doing, restore health and balance to all species.  If the entire world were to focus on this approach,  a new economy would organically emerge with plenty of realigned life-supporting “jobs”, as we all reconnect and to the prime ultimum source of our daily sustenance and well being – the beauty and intelligence of our natural world.

THERE IS NOT A LOT OF TIME LEFT: WATCH: We Need a Revolution:  We Are Running Out of Time – UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon The time has come to put aside our musings and come together to find a new way of being in this 21st century that is for the well-being and nurturing of ALL living species. http://www.karmatube.org/videos.php?id=2473

It is unsustainable—already in overshoot of the earth’s natural systems, exhausting its own resource base, alienating the vast majority of the human and planetary population. The solution in Tunisia, in Egypt, in the entire Middle East, and beyond, does not lay merely in aspirations for democracy. Hope can only spring from a fundamental re-evaluation of the entire structure of our civilization in its current form.

But Yasuni also sits atop vast reserves of oil, and this rainforest wilderness, home to the indigenous Waorani people, faces intense development pressure.
In this Yale Environment 360 video, filmmaker Ryan Killackey travels into the heart of Yasuni with seven scientists and chronicles their work as they inventory the reserve’s remarkable birds, fish, animals, and plants.

Eradicating ecocide could create conditions for business to flourish, but company leaders often offer knee-jerk response to environment campaigners

▶  ERADICATING ECOCIDE: WHY BUSINESS LEADERS MUST STEP UP TO THE CHALLENGE  http://sco.lt/7ExcmX

Ecocide-trial-010

Thursday, 21, February 2013 – Guardian Sustainable Business – The Eradicating Ecocide campaign calls for ecocide – the extensive destruction of ecosystems – to be recognised in international law as the fifth crime against Peace. Lawyer Polly Higgins’ compelling argument is that the abolition of ecocide requires business leadership as surely as the campaign for the abolition of slavery did.

One of the paradoxes for environmental campaigners in developed nations is that we are often fighting for the rights of others – for other species, people in other nations, people not yet born. Like the abolitionists we may not personally benefit from our victories and indeed may be disadvantaged in the short-term. This produces a complex moral and psychological field to work in, one that frequently produces unintended consequences like my conversation with the business leaders. Angry denial, studied indifference and projection of blame are just a few of the responses that leave campaigners shell-shocked and puzzled as they struggle to engage both the public and the powerful in the struggle for a truly sustainable future…. http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/eradicating-ecocide-business-leaders-challenge

Resource speculation driven by financial markets, climate change and biofuels threatens starvation for the world’s poor.

Recent spikes in prices of rice, soy, wheat and corn have driven many poor people in developing countries into hunger and malnutrition. In 2011, then World Bank president Robert Zoellick estimated that 44 million people fell into poverty in 2010 due to rising food prices, adding, “Food price inflation is the biggest threat today to the world’s poor…one weather event and you start to push people over the edge.”

The United Nations (UN) FAO Food Price Index jumped 25 percent in 2010.

The dots connecting world hunger, weather events and speculation on global financial markets are obvious. Yet, well-meaning officials at UN agencies, including the FAO, World Bank and IMF, are curiously blind. Instead, their many urgent meetings over the past three years have focused on raising more money to pay these rising prices for food staples, urging more productivity from agriculture and opposing nations curbing exports to protect their domestic foods ….

With stability in the Middle East in question, drilling at home has never been more attractive, but it often comes at a cost.

Natural gas extraction – fracking – is being touted as the answer. The way fracking is taking place, there are questions being asked about the process and its implications. People have been aware for decades that the rock formation known as the Marcellus Shale has natural gas trapped inside it. But it took professor Terry Engelder to figure out how much was there.

Reading the shocking news about ash die-back, the disease that has now killed most of Denmark’s ash trees and many of those across the rest of northern Europe, I was reminded that when we lose our wildlife we lose some of our stories.

The death of a species, especially a species as significant as the ash, punches a hole not only in nature, but also in our culture.

Throughout northern Europe, the ash tree was associated in pagan thought with the guardianship of life. As Paul Kendall explains on the Trees for Life site, in the mythology of the Vikings (and several other northern peoples), an ash known as yggdrasil or the “world tree” was the scaffolding on which the universe was built…. more http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/georgemonbiot/2012/oct/12/wildlife-ash-tree-die-back

If we want to manage the world for future generations, we need to define what kind of world that should be. Credit: NASA

ACHIEVING A MORE SUSTAINABLE world presupposes a worldview that considers well-being not only in terms of income, but also in terms of human security and opportunities for every person to thrive. It is worth considering what the world would look like from such a perspective.

For starters, it would be a world in which people live free from conflict over land, water, and space; and that ensures food security for the 739 million people who are hungry or malnourished today. Such a world would preserve the 20,000 species of animals and plants that face extinction, understanding their power to heal us physically and spiritually. It would draw us back from the brink of unstoppable global warming and its consequences for coastal communities, weather patterns, and, in some regions, habitability. It would protect sites of extraordinary natural beauty and inspiration. And, for future generations, it would be a world that is more sustainable than ours….

Your Health has it’s own ecosystem, dependent on the greater ecosystem

– by Claudia Rowe — YES! Magazine

Our Health is Ecosystem Health: Dr. Ted Schettler, a Harvard-educated physician, frustrated by the limitations of science in combating disease, believes that finding answers to the most persistent medical challenges of our time—conditions that now threaten to overwhelm our health care system—depends on understanding the human body as a system nested within a series of other, larger systems: one’s family and community, environment, culture, and socioeconomic class, all of which affect each other. He has researched connections between poverty, iron deficiency, and lead poisoning; insecticide use, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease; income disparities and asthma.

He calls this new approach to medicine “the ecological paradigm of health.”

Our Health and Ecosystem Health

“Can there be any doubt that human health is enormously dependent on ecological systems that we are having a major influence on?” Schettler says. “It’s all one world. Our tendency to describe the natural world as something without humans is part of the problem.”

“It’s accepting up front that humans do not stand apart from the environment. We’re a major species, along with the mosquitoes and fish and trees and bacteria. And there are all of these wonderful interrelationships.” … continued …

THE GREAT AWAKENING

In just over 250 years we have consumed or destroyed what took millions and millions of years to evolve…

We now understand that the majority of life on Earth has never been – and will never be – known to us. In a staggering forecast Edward O Wilson, eminent Harvard biologist, predicts that our present course will lead to the extinction of half of all plant and animal species by 2100…. – “Animal Extinction – The greatest threat to mankind”

Over the last 60 odd years we have become preoccupied with, and fixated on ourselves, our man-made lives of production, indiscriminate consumption and lust for profit. self-gratification and status. In this process we have increasingly excluded from our daily decisions and equations the well-being of others and Nature’s life supporting eco-systems. We can now see how this myopia has wreaked havoc upon both our environment and all species with in it –our societies, our communities and ourselves.

While we were flying high our natural world (and us) began to get sick, really sick .  Greed took over from compassion, and wealth negotiated itself more wealth at the expense of the average man, woman and child setting the stage for a global uprising and reawakening.

We forgot our deep and profound responsibility to care for and nurture the greater whole. We forgot that we abide in Mother Nature’s womb, dependent on Her every second of every day. Just as we depended on our mother for nurturing and sustenance while in her womb, we depend on Mother Nature’s health, abundance and generosity for our daily nurturing and sustenance and FOR SURVIVAL as a species. This amnesia has resulted in us almost consuming ourselves out of existence and, in the process, we have lost our connection to community, to each other and to the essential natural processes of life.

While we were flying high our natural world (and us) began to get sick, really sick . Greed took over from compassion, and wealth negotiated itself more wealth at the expense of the average man, woman and child setting the stage for a global uprising and reawakening.

 


A Perfect Storm is approaching – a combined environmental, economic and social collapse UNLESS we change our attitudes and priorities in life NOW, and even then, we may well have passed the tipping point of what our biosphere can handle.

The major difference this time, than the Great Depression or any other time in human history, is the environment – its massive degradation and depletion by man – the degree of which has never before been seen on this planet – and the cumulative effect is the cause of Climate Change.

We depend upon a healthy, balanced natural world for our very existence – as does all life. Our eco-systems have been plundered, pillaged and polluted to a point, in some cases, of no return; species are disappearing at an alarming rate totally destroying the biological and crucial biodiversity balance of the planet. Our common life’s values and the dignity of cultures have been dismantled as we gave ourselves over to the Age of Consumerism.  When Drilling for Oil has become a greater priority than clean water and healthy food, we have no choice but to revisit our values in life. What we do and choose now will set the destiny of humankind for centuries to come.

Humans must change behaviour to save bees, vital for food production

– UN report March 2011 – The potentially disastrous decline in bees, a vital pollinating element in food production for the growing global population, is likely to continue unless humans profoundly change their ways, from the use of insecticides to air pollution, according to a United Nations report released today.

“The way humanity manages or mismanages its nature-based assets, including pollinators, will in part define our collective future in the 21st century,” UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Executive Director Achim Steiner said. “The fact is that of the 100 crop species that provide 90 per cent of the world’s food, over 70 are pollinated by bees.”…ARTICLE CONTINUES….Humans must change behaviour to save bees, vital for food production – UN

Will the children who inherit the Earth, and the potential issues that might still remain unresolved, feel the innate desire to preserve it? Or is our connection to nature being lost? This interesting and thought provoking concept was introduced to me by Kim Marshall McLean, a PhD classmate of mine at George Mason University and a NOAA Biologist. Kim is researching how exposure to the outdoors and the lessons learned in nature shape our understanding and even our intelligence. The sociological and environmental information gathered from this kind of research is far reaching and has implications for business as well. It is the hope that future leaders, especially those in business, will retain the close kinship with nature.

“The archeological record indicates that civilizational collapse does not come suddenly out of the blue. Archeologists analyzing earlier civilizations talk about a decline-and-collapse scenario. Economic and social collapse was almost always preceded by a period of environmental decline….

“No previous civilization has survived the ongoing destruction of its natural supports. Nor will ours. Yet economists look at the future through a different lens. Relying heavily on economic data to measure progress, they see the near 10-fold growth in the world economy since 1950 and the associated gains in living standards as the crowning achievement of our modern civilization….More….Two Views of Our Future: Science Versus Mainstream Economics : TreeHugger.

 

 

THE SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION IS UPON US – CAN HUMANS SURVIVE?

 

Get Ready for the Ride of Your Life

Given that it takes hundreds of thousands to millions of years for evolution to build diversity back up to pre-crash levels after major extinction episodes, increased rates of extinction are of particular concern, especially because global and regional diversity today is generally lower than it was 20,000 years ago as a result of the last planetary state shift. … Possible too are substantial losses of ecosystem services required to sustain the human population. … Although the ultimate effects of changing biodiversity and species compositions are still unknown, if critical thresholds of diminishing returns in ecosystem services were reached over large areas and at the same time global demands increased … widespread social unrest, economic instability and loss of human life could result

Whee!

How close are we to such a global state shift? One way to conceptualize it is to visualize the percentage of the Earth’s terrestrial ecosystems that have seen local state shifts:

“Our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and dominion over the earth has to be looked at in the full light of day – all of our ambient cultural stories and values that we take for granted and which remain invisible must become visible.”

Film offers us a powerful tool to shift awareness and inspire action. It offers a method to break our dependence on the mainstream media and become the media ourselves. We don’t need to wait for anyone or anything.

Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries below. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves.

Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there’s lots of subject matter to cover. Our country has to come to terms with the true history of the United States. It has to learn about basic ecology. It needs to understand some basic truths about peak oil and the monetary system, the truth about capitalism and governments.

Nature – The Great Teacher

Michael O’Malley, vice-president of human capital at Sibson Consulting, took up beekeeping as a hobby and was surprised to find that it provided insights into his day job of advising on risk management.

WE NEED OUR BEES, ALIVE NOT DEAD

O’Malley writes in the Harvard Business Review that beehives are structured for long-term growth and as a result the pollen gatherers have become masters of risk management, unlike many “too big to fail” banks.

He writes: “When a colony gets too large, it becomes operationally unwieldy and grossly inefficient and the hive splits. Eventually, risk is spread across many hives and revenue sources in contrast to relying on one big, vulnerable “super-hive” for sustenance.”

Other lessons he has taken from his hobby are that queen bees do not appear to be subject to short-term quarterly pollen and nectar targets. “No queen bee is under pressure for quarterly pollen and nectar targets. The hive is only beholden to the long term. Indeed, beehives appear to underperform at times because they could collect more,” he writes.

Instead, decision-making is decentralised with individual bees empowered to take decisive action, bolstered by a “disciplined career development program”: “By the time bees are sent into the field, they are prepared — and, even then, novice foragers are frequently accompanied by veterans who show them how to efficiently and productively move among, and work, the flowers.”……More

How might our dreams of a synthetic utopia end?

By DAN CLOER via Science and Environment: It’s a Small World

Celebrating the establishment of the International Association of Chemical Societies as well as Marie Curie’s 1911 Nobel Prize, the United Nations has declared 2011 the International Year of Chemistry. The theme, “Chemistry: Our Life, Our Future,” may be significant in more ways than sloganeers intended: after a century of chemical tinkering, we wield the two-edged sword of our increasing knowledge ever more boldly. How might our dreams of a synthetic utopia end?  The chemical signature of our activities, and in fact life on earth in general, has the capacity to be planet-changing. Our impact has simply been greatly accelerated over the past century. Does this matter? The real question is whether the gains are worth the costs. But we are only now beginning to understand the costs. “Everything must go somewhere,” Commoner noted, reminding us that the materials we create using our chemical know-how never disappear.  By DAN CLOER (See Full Article ) Science and Environment: It’s a Small World.

Is This Insanity Or What?

The Objectification of Life – and The Huge Price We Are Paying

By @pdjmoo March 10, 2012

What is it about the human psyche that is willing to destroy the very foundations of life that humanity (and all species) depends upon for survival?  Aren’t we supposed to be the most “intelligent” species on the planet?  Sadly, facts are showing that we have far less understanding of the natural balances required for the planet than our arrogance and intellect would suppose.

It seems this disease is pervasive right across the globe.  Like a swarm of locusts, we are ravaging and razing the earth to a point where life can no longer survive.  We continue to over-fish our oceans until 90% of the big fish are gone, devastating the natural ocean systems and their biodiversity.  Why?  For profit and under the guise of “feeding the people” Overfishing leaves swaths of Mediterranean barren

We continue to ravage the forests that hold so much life that maintains the natural balance and biodiversity of our lands, often displacing indigenous peoples from their homes, creating dependency.  For What?  Profit and the hunger/demand for timber and clearing of forests for non-regional monocrops, destroying thousands of species and their habitat in the process. Our Disappearing Forests.  (It takes 100 years to grow a 100 year-old tree)

We continue to “drill baby drill” even as we are faced with horrific oil disasters world-wide, destroying land and ocean life and ecosystems and costing billions in cleanups.  Why? For profit and the hunger for cheap fossil-fuel energy, oil and gasoline.

In this second part of a two-part series, we explore how the “duopoly” of State and Market could become part of a new triarchy with the Commons to protect the environment.

A banner reading “Listen to the people, not the polluters” was briefly unfurled December 5th when Greenpeace activists tried to hang it from a Durban, South African hotel hosting a conference of business leaders convened by the World Business Council on Sustainable Development. It was part of a protest to highlight Greenpeace’s new “Dirty Dozen” report, coinciding with the climate talks in Durban, on how major corporations are holding the world back from getting an effective deal on tackling climate change as the clock ticks perilously close to climate tipping points.

(One of the conference participants showed up on the “dirty dozen” list: Eskom, the South African state-owned electrical utility.)

That three of the activists were immediately deported is symbolic of just how little world leaders are “listening to the people.” (continued.http://ow.ly/7RgfB

With the climate talks in Durban seemingly headed for a train wreck, an innovative project is developing a new legal international framework for protecting the planetary ecosystem that could just be the most important legal initiative of our age.

The climate talks had not even started in Durban when their epitaph was already being written. It was revealed in a number of reports that at the two previous talks in 2009 and 2010, the big industrial nations of Europe and the US had bullied smaller nations into accepting no action on the climate and that the rich nations, including the UK, EU, Japan, US and the UN have already decided to quash any agreement until 2020 – at which time, no doubt it will be conveniently put off again.

It won’t matter by then because it will be, in the memorable words of Dr. James Hansen, “game over for the planet.” The narrow window we might just possibly still have to avert civilization-destroying climate change will close by 2015. To squeak through that window, we will have to begin ratcheting down our absolute emissions by then – in other words, reverse the direction we are currently on, which saw a 6% rise in emissions in 2010, despite the global economic downturn.

The arguments for and against climate engineering, and reveals the extent of vested interests linking researchers, venture capitalists and corporations with Clive Hamilton, professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia, He’s the author of Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Ag, e of Climate Engineering. There’s virtually no regulation of geoengineering. And when it comes to sulfate aerosol spraying, there’s nothing to prevent a government, any government, or even a corporation or a billionaire with a messiah complex, from launching a program of taking control of the Earth’s weather by installing this kind of solar shield. So the absence of governance, the absence of regulation and the exclusion, particularly of people from poor and vulnerable countries, is a very serious concern…. http://www.democracynow.org/2013/5/20/geoengineering_can_we_save_the_planet

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

“ChemTrails” and Climate GeoEngineering:  Long Held as a “conspiracy theory” evidence is now emerging that Climate Engineering is already happening around the world, and has been for years. Why has this information been withheld?  Could this “climate remediation”, “solar radiation management” experiment be further cause for the increasingly violent and extreme weather around the world?  Who is behind it?  The following videos, articles and investigations lay out indisputable evidence that climate remediation/climate geoengineering is already underway and we should all be outraged at this secretive, potentially devastating assault on our planet without serious, independent scientific peer reviewed studies.  The only way to stop the impending adverse affects of climate change is to stop doing what is creating it, not further destroying our atmosphere and environment, or finding bandaid “solutions” that allow us to keep on with the industrial pollutions and environmental degradations that created it in the first place.

Link: SlideShare presentation : “Chemtrails – experiments in weather control”

The World of Geoengineering | ETC Group Maps of Known Earth System Experimentations  ETC Group publishes a world map of geoengineering — the large-scale manipulation of earth or climate systems. While there is no complete record of the scores of weather and climate control projects in dozens of countries, this map is the first attempt to document the expanding scope of research and experimentation. Almost 300 geoengineering projects/experiments are represented on the map belonging to 10 different types of climate-altering technologies.

Comment by @pdjmoo: “Even the idea of manipulating our climate makes my hair stand on end.  We humans have so little knowledge about the grand intricacies of how our natural world and atmosphere work.  It is all interconnected in such intricate ways and science is just in the infancy stages of understanding it.   Remembering that the atmosphere has no boundaries, nor can we humans control the wind or ocean patterns, the prospect of a devastating domino affect on land and sea could literally wipe out all life on earth.   There is only one way to address climate change…and that is to stop doing what is creating it.  Trying to address the symptom instead of the cause is like treating sun-stroke instead of staying out of the sun”…pdjmoo SEE My “Urgent Memo To The World”  Read the rest of this entry »

Mt. Shasta, a small northern California town of 3,500 residents nestled in the foothills of magnificent Mount Shasta, is taking on corporate power through an unusual process—democracy.

The citizens of Mt. Shasta have developed an extraordinary ordinance, set to be voted on in the next special or general election, that would prohibit corporations such as Nestle and Coca-Cola from extracting water from the local aquifer. But this is only the beginning. The ordinance would also ban energy giant PG&E, and any other corporation, from regional cloud seeding, a process that disrupts weather patterns through the use of toxic chemicals such as silver iodide. More generally, it would refuse to recognize corporate personhood, explicitly place the rights of community and local government above the economic interests of multinational corporations, and recognize the rights of nature to exist, flourish, and evolve.

Mt. Shasta is not alone. Rather, it is part of a (so far) quiet municipal movement making its way across the United States in which communities are directly defying corporate rule and affirming the sovereignty of local government.
