In the 1940s my Dad built a SOLAR clothes dryer. Mom operated it for decades.

September 9, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

In the 1950s when I was growing up, I remember at home we had a SOLAR and WIND clothes dryer.  It used no fossil fuels and no electricity. Dad built it in the 1940s.  Mom operated it for decades. It was called a “clothesline.”  Every home’s back yard had one.  It was an upright metal pole with a smaller horizontal metal crossbar at the top.  30 to 40 feet away was another one with the same design.  Stretched between them were four long metal wires that constituted the clothesline. People would wash clothes, sheets, towels, etc., in the house and […]

Watch and/or read TV: “Debunk the Fossil Fuel Industry’s Phony Climate Remedies”

August 28, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The September 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides fresh information and insights into some aspects of the climate crisis that most people do not adequately understand.  Our expert guest, Jim Walsh, explained some problems and some scams that the fossil fuel companies want to fool us into accepting.  Before we ended our interview, Jim proposed some real solutions. For decades the big businesses that sell oil, natural gas and coal have been denying that they were causing the climate crisis.  The scientific proof is so overwhelming that they can’t be “climate deniers” any longer, so recently the fossil fuel […]

The first few items here were posted on July 2, 2021, in my blog post saying we really are experiencing a climate emergency, so we should declare that.  The remaining items are declarations by various entities and statements urging other entities to declare a climate emergency:   In 2020 the United Nations urged world leaders to DECLARE A CLIMATE EMERGENCY: https://www.ecowatch.com/virtual-climate-summit-2020-2649465278.html?mc_cid=d65edea624&mc_eid=58bffd4d51   In 2019 Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) urged declaring a climate emergency: https://grist.org/article/bernie-sanders-and-aoc-want-to-declare-a-climate-emergency-does-that-mean-anything/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=daily AND: https://www.ecowatch.com/aoc-sanders-emergency-resolution-2639138944.html?utm_source=EcoWatch+List&utm_campaign=7aa6bb0ac0-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_49c7d43dc9-7aa6bb0ac0-85369701   In 2019 Pope Francis declared a Climate Emergency in a meeting with Big Oil leaders: https://www.ecowatch.com/pope-francis-declares-climate-emergency-2638888796.html?utm_source=EcoWatch+List&utm_campaign=40b456dbde-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_49c7d43dc9-40b456dbde-85369701 AND: https://www.ecowatch.com/pope-francis-declares-climate-emergency-2638888796.html?rebelltitem=3#rebelltitem3 […]

The July 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you and other people make more progress when we work on issues you care about.

Because we are the underdogs in these big issues, we need to empower ourselves and bring many people together so we can organize large nonviolent grassroots movements to solve the problems and create peaceful and just societies at the […]

Trump’s war on science has hurt our nation and our public institutions:  https://truthout.org/articles/trumps-attacks-on-science-have-scarred-our-public-institutions/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=abae6ed1-a9a4-41f5-a9d3-2d3f636cbbbe   Trump Officials Tried To ‘Cripple’ The CDC’s COVID-19 Response, House Panel Says.  Trump appointees sought to change reports “in a misguided effort to achieve herd immunity,” House investigators found.  SEE THIS:  https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-cdc-covid-19-response_n_5fe0d20dc5b60d416344a7d0?ncid=newsltushpmgpolitics   In 4 years Trump escalated his corruption over the CDC. Trump’s biases increasingly overruled scientists and medical professionals.  This article does not mention the urgent need for Biden to restore honest science instead of Trumpian corruption at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  Trump corrupted EVERY federal agency.  Voters must demand that Biden […]

March 15, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you understand how nuclear weapons came into existence – and the science behind them – and the public’s reactions to learning about the hard realities. From ancient times, people have wondered how the natural world works.  People have also wondered how they could use the power of the natural world to kill their enemies.  Modern science and engineering allowed people to increase their knowledge – and increase their ability to kill. Since the 1940s nuclear weapons have been part of our reality.  Most people try to avoid thinking about […]

COVID-19’s origin: New evidence points to lab experiments instead of the official explanation

March 8, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Ever since the COVID-19 crisis occurred, I have been reading information about its origin.  The official story claimed it arose in an animal-to-human transmission at a meat market or from bats.  More recent scientific evidence has been debunking the official story and explaining how it arose from a scientific lab that was doing risky experiments and lacked adequate safety.  Here are some articles:   #1: This informative article was published in Politico, a mainstream political periodical.  It reports that in 2018, American diplomats warned of risky Coronavirus experiments in a Wuhan Lab, but the Trump regime failed to listen. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2021/03/08/josh-rogin-chaos-under-heaven-wuhan-lab-book-excerpt-474322 […]
