After IPCC’s alarming report demanding sharp reductions, Biden urged OPEC to INCREASE DRILLING FOR OIL!!!

September 9, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The article with the headline and the link below said this part-way through the article, because Biden’s Trumpian stupidity was not the article’s main point.  The article said Biden urged OPEC to DRILL MORE OIL because he was worried that a reduced supply of oil would increase oil prices and hurt the economic “recovery.” The article’s main point is that instead of taking honest, effective actions to sharply reduce climate chaos, fossil fuel companies are promoting high-tech gimmicks that are not really effective but will fool the public and governments – and keep enriching their own profits – while delaying […]

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 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. Many of the issues we care about are HUGE issues in which WE are the UNDERDOGS.  Powerful forces created the unjust status quo — and powerful forces sustain the injustices we are trying to eliminate. 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 […]

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.

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons is a POWERFUL step toward PEACE!

January 30, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The February 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides you with a powerful, inspiring, exciting worldwide campaign that is already making powerful progress toward abolishing nuclear weapons. American politicians and American news media have grossly failed to inform the American people about the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly approved it in July 2017.  Already, 51 nations have ratified the Treaty, and we expect many more during 2021 and beyond.  The Treaty went into effect on January 22, 2021 for the nations that have ratified it. During this TV interview Joanne […]

December 30, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The January 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV program will help YOU make progress on the issues YOU care about. Many of our nation’s problems had existed for a very long time.  These include racial injustice, economic inequality, environmental problems, a foreign policy that is both cruel and violent, and some dysfunctional aspects of our electoral systems.  From 2017 through 2020, Trump made these and other problems even worse.  Really, this goes beyond partisanship.  Many of our nation’s problems are long-standing and bi-partisan.  The American people have values that are better, wiser, more compassionate, and more progressive than either of […]
