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: […]

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. The National Priorities Project […]

United Nations is warning the world about persistently hurting the environment!

September 27, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

U.N. warning #1: A U.N. report blames short-sighted economics for endangering nature.  The dominant policies focus on short-term profits from exploiting nature. Instead, we need to “value” other aspects of nature. The smart article is at this link:   U.N. warning #2: Pay attention to economics: U.N. warns that increasing disasters are ‘setting humanity on a spiral of self-destruction’ Currently, our politicians and our economic models are FAILING TO PAY ATTENTION to the escalating disasters (environmental, climate, etc.).  The United Nations issued this warning.  We – grassroots people – need to push our politicians, big businesses, economists, etc., to […]

YES! We really CAN organize grassroots movements to solve big, hard, scary problems!

September 1, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Many important issues (climate, nuclear weapons, etc.) are big and scary to think about, so many people do not want to think about them.  Many people feel that those problems are so big and are imposed upon us by powerful forces (big businesses, the Pentagon, etc.).  This power imbalance causes many people feel that they are powerless to solve the problems because the problems were created and are perpetuated by forces that are so big and powerful, and that we are too small and weak to oppose them.  It’s easier to simply avoid dealing with them.  As a result, the […]

Biden should have declared a CLIMATE EMERGENCY a year and a half ago!!! Now he is merely considering it.

July 19, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

I keep accumulating information on many dozens of topics that I want to post to my blog.  My file of “CLIMATE EMERGENCY” resources has 80 items in it going back to September 2016 (a full year before I started this blog). Here are just a few HOT items: BOTH political parties have been horribly negligent in dealing with the climate crisis.  MANY candidates in BOTH political parties take bribes (“campaign donations”) from fossil fuel companies.  The Senate Democrats allow Joe Manchin — a multi-millionaire from coal companies — to CHAIR the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.  We all […]

Supreme Court sharply limits EPA’s ability to cut carbon emissions from power plants. Other protections are in danger too.

July 5, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. Supreme Court is dominated by a 6-3 majority of radical right-wing Republican extremists.  In late spring and early summer 2022 they issued many right-wing extreme decisions that are hurting our constitutional rights.  Here is information about their assault upon the EPA’s ability to protect our environment, climate, and public health from emissions from power plants.     U.S. Supreme Court slashes EPA’s power to protect the climate from power plant emissions: “US Supreme Court Drops Carbon Bomb on the Planet” — One Democratic senator warned the high court’s right-wing majority “could unleash a new era of reckless deregulation […]
