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:  https://grist.org/international/nature-is-in-crisis-a-un-report-says-short-sighted-economics-is-to-blame/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=daily   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 […]

Greenland’s ice is melting faster and faster

September 27, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Greenland ice melt will raise global sea levels at least 10 inches, scientists conclude.  The scientists worry severe melting events, like the melting seen in 2012, could push eventual sea level rise closer to 30 inches.  https://www.nationofchange.org/2022/09/01/greenland-ice-melt-will-raise-global-sea-levels-at-least-10-inches-scientists-conclude/     Greenland’s Melting Glacier Could Raise Sea Levels Twice as Much as Predicted.  https://truthout.org/video/greenlands-melting-glacier-could-raise-sea-levels-twice-as-much-as-predicted/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=9fdc01f7-7fc4-4187-8881-0270d5ea3953     The best-case scenario for Greenland ice melt just got worse.  In a warming world, scientists keep needing to revise their projections.  https://grist.org/science/the-best-case-scenario-for-greenland-ice-melt-zombie-ice/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=daily     Greenland Ice Melt Will Raise Global Sea Levels at Least 10 Inches, Scientists Conclude.  https://www.ecowatch.com/greenland-ice-melt-sea-level-rise.html               […]

2-minute video: An eagle’s amazing skills

July 30, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

 An Amazing Raptor! An eagle, with a camera installed on its back, was released from the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, now the world’s tallest building (about half a mile high, approximately twice the height of the Empire State building), in order to search for its trainer, who was exactly ten blocks from the building. When the eagle spotted its coach, it plunged downwards for about a minute and a half and then landed on his arm.  Not only can you see some nice images of the city (and the curvature of the earth), but also you can get an […]

July 19, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Jim Manista, an active member of the Olympia Coalition to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, produced this smart 11-minute video supporting the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  This Treaty is POWERFUL and HISTORIC.  Although 66 nations have ratified the Treaty, mainstream news media in the U.S. have ALMOST TOTALLY REFUSED to cover this hot news. We encourage you to watch Jim’s video at this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wU1p2XIbHLZZ36fSSa_jOu7avHCnX9sg/view?usp=sharing

Fossil fuel companies and right-wing media fool many, many Americans into denying climate crisis and falling for phony “greenwashing” remedies

“U.S. Has Highest Percentage of People Not Worried About Climate Change in Survey of 31 Countries” –Clearly, the climate deniers, the fossil fuel companies’ propagandists, and the right-wing media have been succeeding.  See this:  https://www.ecowatch.com/climate-change-concern-survey-us-countries.html   We must get more savvy in communicating effectively with the general public.  The FREE online workshops I offer could help the climate movement do this.  I will offer my series again through Zoom in September and October 2022.  Publicity for that series will be similar to this: https://parallaxperspectives.org/sign-up-now-for-free-practical-online-workshops-to-help-you-make-more-progress-on-issues-you-care-about-2   This article was posted on March 18, 2022:  Decades of Lobbying Weakened Americans’ Gas Mileage […]

Legal Rights for Nature: See these videos and articles

March 25, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The concept of recognizing legal rights for nature is growing worldwide.  Here are some recent resources:   My January 2022 TV interview makes a solid case that is easy to understand.  You may watch the TV interview video and/or read the thorough summary I typed up with links to additional information.  Here is the link:  https://parallaxperspectives.org/lets-recognize-legal-rights-for-nature   The progressive populist Jim Hightower wrote this article recently:  https://hightowerlowdown.org/article/give-nature-a-seat-at-the-governing-table-rights-of-nature/   Panama made good progress on this recently:  https://insideclimatenews.org/news/25022022/panama-rights-of-nature/?utm_source=InsideClimate+News&utm_campaign=e4567a0b00-&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_29c928ffb5-e4567a0b00-329402989   A brief introduction to this video says this: “Western views and the legal system tend to view nature as property, and as a […]

The U.S. military is THE WORLD’S BIGGEST EMITTER of climate pollution.

February 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Recently, I have read DOZENS of articles about this.  Here are just a very few.  If you want more, e-mail me at glenanderson@integra.net     The U.S. military emits more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than entire countries such as Denmark or Portugal.  However, nobody knows exactly how much, because the Pentagon’s reporting is spotty.  A Humvee gets between four and eight miles per gallon; an F-35 requires 2.37 gallons per mile.  See this article: https://insideclimatenews.org/news/18012022/military-carbon-emissions/?utm_source=InsideClimate+News&utm_campaign=b7cb2b8041-&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_29c928ffb5-b7cb2b8041-327502737     A friend added this information in response to another friend’s article about military pollution of the climate:  “The British military emits as much […]

Insights into “climate deniers” and effective ways to deal with them

February 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

A strong majority of Americans are concerned about the climate crisis.  Some people are “climate deniers” or “climate skeptics.”  Some of these people have been fooled by fossil fuel company propaganda and/or right-wing propaganda.  Some simply do not understand the scientific realities. Those of us who care about the climate want to build the grassroots movement to protect the climate.  Some climate supporters are frustrated, flummoxed, or depressed by the “deniers” and “skeptics” who are polluting mass media, confusing the public, and preventing governments from solving problems. I have seen several recent articles that can help us understand those people […]
