Watch informative interview: Pension Funds Must Sell Fossil Fuel Investments

November 2, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The November 2023 TV program in the “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” series explores an important aspect of the climate crisis that most people have been neglecting.  If people learn about this aspect – and take necessary actions – we can protect the climate and also protect ourselves from financial losses. Our strategies for protecting the climate must go beyond changing specific public policies in order to reduce burning fossil fuels.  We also need to stop “the money pipeline” that funds fossil fuels and the climate crisis.  One way of doing this is to urge all kinds of entities to sell their […]

Nuclear power is DEFINITELY NOT a remedy for the climate crisis!

January 8, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

The nuclear power industry and its supporters (and some well-meaning but misinformed people) want us to consider nuclear power as a remedy for the climate crisis.  THE FACTS OPPOSE THIS.   Experts Say Nuclear Energy as Climate Solution Is Total “Fiction.”  “The reality is nuclear is neither clean, safe, or smart; but a very complex technology with the potential to cause significant harm.”   Former Nuclear Regulatory Commission chair argues nuclear power isn’t a climate solution:   Nuclear power not feasible to tackle climate change:   Nuclear power is NOT a remedy for the climate crisis: […]

Debunk the hype about nuclear fusion energy

January 8, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

In December 2022, a lot of publicity was praising nuclear fusion as a smart new source of clean, limitless energy.  That publicity exaggerated the supposed benefits and failed to mention the shortcomings. These articles from December 2022 provide more sensible information: This article from January 2022 also provides caution about fusion:   This article exposes the dangers of fusion in relation to nuclear weapons: The “fusion” energy supporters’ vigorous media “hype” about a recent accomplishment seems designed to create support for the extremely high funding needed.  Also, the extremely huge amount of high-tech equipment is horribly expensive […]

Powerful forces are bullying us. Let’s reject despair and empower strategically smart grassroots movements!

January 2, 2023 GlenAnderson 0

On issue after issue, powerful economic and political forces — including “culture warriors” — are vigorously bullying people, corrupting elections, hurting workers and children, disrupting ecosystems and Mother Earth’s climate, and causing other damage. Many people who have better values are feeling overwhelmed and powerless.  Some yield to despair and give up. But we can indeed fight back — nonviolently — by organizing strategically savvy grassroots movements to solve the problems and replace bad public policies with good ones. This requires a positive attitude.  Hope is not really a statistical probability that we have a certain percentage of likelihood of […]

If we want “national security,” we must establish “climate security”

October 2, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

FACT SHEET: No National Security without Climate Security Environmentalists know that EVERYTHING IS INTERCONNECTED.  This is true about public policy issues too. We cannot have “national security” unless we have “climate security,” because climate disruptions makes the U.S. (and the rest of the world) INSECURE and causes global disruptions (environmental catastrophes, massive migrations of climate refugees, etc.) that endanger “national security” and result in escalating military violence. See the FACT SHEET posted below to understand how the U.S. government’s pitifully small spending to protect the climate compares to its enormously gigantically outrageous spending for the military.
