Nuclear power is bad in many ways — and NOT good for the climate!

September 18, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

For decades, knowledgeable people have known that nuclear power is bad in many, many ways. Now, although some people claim nuclear power is a viable alternative to fossil fuels, knowledgeable people explain why it is BAD FOR THE CLIMATE TOO. Here are links to a few articles about nuclear power, including its harm to the climate:   Nuclear reactors make climate change worse: https://beyondnuclearinternational.org/2020/09/13/nuclear-reactors-make-climate-change-worse/   Sea level rise threatens nuclear power waste sites: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0301421519306937?fbclid=IwAR1dcJcWD_R3T85TrUktUk3ozmEfvEqw52YKNskyDXEFuohheQK58RZir8U&via%3Dihub   Click link to tell Congress that nuclear power is NOT a remedy for the climate crisis: https://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5502/t/0/blastContent.jsp?email_blast_KEY=1433809   The non-profit organization that provided the link […]

Recent actions by Trump & Republicans validate what I wrote and posted here about their mania to PREVENT government from functioning well.

August 31, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

In 2017 I wrote a thorough essay explaining that Trump, the Republican Party, big business, and other conservatives are hell-bent to PREVENT the government from solving problems.  Their whole “worldview” supports their mania to enable their elites (whites, rich people, big business, “patriotic” Americans, etc.) DOMINATE EVERYBODY ELSE. Although decent people want fairness and justice throughout our society and in the economy, and fairness and peace in our nation’s dealing with other nations, Trump, Republicans, etc., reject that and are RADICALLY DESTROYING humane governmental, social and economic policies in order to enable rich, racist, cruel people to PREVENT the government […]

“Let’s Boldly Create the Future We Really Want”

August 29, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The June 2020 TV program for the “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series addresses the serious problems that we are experiencing and encourages people to boldly envision solutions. People know the status quo is bad – and they want to solve the problems. But nearly everybody is bogged down in feeling powerless.  They don’t feel empowered to solve the problems, and they don’t know how to proceed. This TV program — and the transcript I have posted at this link,  2020.06 BOLD FUTURE — TRANSCRIPT with MORE INFORMATION and RESOURCES — start by confronting the serious problems in our world, our nation, […]

More evidence of Trump’s HORRIBLE INCOMPETENCE AND MISMANAGEMENT of the pandemic

August 4, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump’s mismanagement of COVID-19 led to more than one million new cases in 15 days in late July 2020.  SEE THIS: https://www.pfaw.org/blog-posts/falsehoods-and-failures-trump-during-covid-19-july-24?utm_medium=email&utm_source=nl&utm_campaign=july2020   MOST of the Americans who died in the pandemic died BECAUSE OF TRUMP.  See www.TrumpDeathClock.com A competent estimate in July 2020 was that 87,655 Americans died from COVID-19 because of Trump’s failure to act effectively. Also, see this:  In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March […]

Call COVID-19 the “TrumpVirus” because his incompetence and cruelty made U.S. #1 in infections and deaths.

August 4, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump refuses to take responsibility for any of his many horrible decisions and failures.  He blames the Coronavirus on Chinese people, Democratic governors, the news media, and so forth, but he refuses to admit that Trump’s own stupidity, ego, incompetence, mismanagement made the crisis much, much worse than it would have been if we had a competent president. When he took power in January 2017 the Executive Branch agencies included two offices that were responsible for watching out for pandemics and planning in advance how to effectively manage pandemics in case they emerge.  Trump ABOLISHED those, so he PREVENTED our […]

Sign up now for FREE online workshops on grassroots organizing for issues YOU care about!

July 21, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Powerful forces keep making many issues worse. But YOU can reverse those trends and proactively push to make progress on issues YOU care about! We must build strong, savvy nonviolent grassroots “people-power” movements to achieve social and economic justice, to solve the climate crisis, and to create peace and other major goals. Governments and big businesses are the LAST to figure things out.  (Mainstream news media are the next-to-last.)  They will do what we want ONLY WHEN a strong nonviolent grassroots movement forces them to do what is needed.  Recent history has proved this a number of times.  (In the […]

Trump, Republicans and conservatives keep making the pandemic WORSE AND WORSE!

June 28, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Republicans are NOT “pro-life.”  They keep sacrificing people’s lives to the Coronavirus pandemic in order to help businesses produce and sell. Trump, Republicans and conservatives show horrible negativity and denialism against the honest science that we need in order to save our lives. Here are just a few examples from late June 2020: This article explains the late June 2020 surge in new Coronavirus cases: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/the-us-s-new-surge-in-coronavirus-cases-explained/ar-BB162ob2?ocid=spartan-ntp-feeds   Trump’s crazy psychology: Zero empathy for victims. Coronavirus victims are simply “losers.” And more … Although we know a lot about Trump’s bizarre psychology, this article provides more information: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/6/25/1955974/-Trump-believes-anyone-who-dies-from-Covid-19-is-a-loser?detail=emaildkreicymi   New COVID […]

Trump and Republicans are hell-bent to PREVENT government from solving problems!

June 12, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Our nation, our people, our environment, our health — EVERYTHING — is suffering under the weight of a HUGE NUMBER OF PROBLEMS! But Trump and the Republicans are HELL-BENT TO PREVENT GOVERNMENT FROM SOLVING the problems! A while ago I wrote a thorough article that examines and criticizes the worldview of the conservatives that has been hurting us in many ways.  The article is long but full of insights.  I encourage people to read it here:  This Currently Dominant Worldview Hurts Us in Many Ways — and PREVENTS Governments from Solving Problems The Coronavirus pandemic, massive unemployment, racial injustices, police […]

Trump signed an Executive Order to MINE THE MOON!

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) wrote, “Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth.”   The Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space provided the information below.  Contact this excellent non-profit org at:PO Box 652Brunswick, ME 04011(207) 607-4255http://www.space4peace.org http://space4peace.blogspot.com (blog) On April 10, 2020, this organization provided this video and the information I’ve copied below this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niqIJJAsz-E&feature=em-uploademail Trump signed an executive order to allow corporations and citizens, aka billionaires, to begin mining the moon.  In addition, they want to use nuclear reactors to fuel spacecraft so they can mine Mars in […]

Here is the link to Gov. Inslee’s plan for a phased recovery from Coronavirus distancing, etc.

May 24, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Washington State was the first state to be hit by the Coronavirus.  Fortunately, we have a competent state governor and health department, so they took prompt, smart, effective actions.  This is very different from states that are run by Republicans and science deniers.  Here in Washington State we “leveled the curve” effectively.  As a result, the numbers of active cases in Washington State have peaked and declined. Governor Jay Inslee took actions and recently released a four-stage for slowly, reasonably reducing our “social distancing” and other precautions. Here is a link to Gov. Inslee’s plan for a phased recovery.  It […]

This context explains Trump’s refusal to protect us from Coronavirus and Trump’s destruction of governmental functioning

May 16, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

You already know that Trump and his entire Executive Branch have utterly refused to deal effectively with the Coronavirus pandemic. The reason is NOT ONLY because they are stupid and incompetent. Another crucially important reason for their failure is that Trump and Republicans believe the government should NOT solve problems and should NOT help people. They have been SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYING GOVERNMENT bit by bit. We see it especially now.   I wrote a SHORT ARTICLE explaining this: Our society is suffering in many, many ways. The problems are all around us — and they are interconnected. They are rooted in […]

Governments should take PROMPT, STRONG actions for the climate — as they did for Coronavirus

May 1, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Some governments did take PROMPT, STRONG actions to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic. The climate crisis is a serious emergency, but they keep dawdling and failing to act. We must push governments to act with the same sense of urgency for the climate crisis. See this: https://www.ecowatch.com/coronavirus-response-climate-change-2645571474.html?rebelltitem=2#rebelltitem2
