LAS VEGAS SLAUGHTER AND CLIMATE CHANGE DEATHS 3 Oct 2017

The killer in Las Vegas did not know his victims. When they suffered he had no connection to the those who suffered. Not knowing the relationship left him with a clear conscience. It only him with a feeling of being known in the world.

In climate change those who caused the CO2 climate change deaths did not know their victims. Those who caused the CO2 climate change had no connection to those who suffered. Not knowing the sufferers left the people who caused the death with a clear conscience. It left them only with a feeling of having achieved good things in their lives that made them feel they have something to be remembered for.

When you are absent from the victim you hold no empathy for him/her. We need to feel we are more of a community and that we stands up for everyone. When you get a man like O’Leary who says, “Greed is Good” then he is willing to absent himself from all the destruction and the bad that he causes. He should not get away with this. The new economic model suggested by Landerrachie, Bowles, Carlin, and Stevens * in “The Economy” may finally have an impact upon an old destructive economic model that is killing the world. Let us hope they are not too late.

The question is should those who were most destructive pay the penalty?

* The Economist Sept 23 , 2017. p 70

BECOME A GREAT PERSON

Posted by Willard Anderson on September 15th, 2017.

To be a great man/woman means something more than being an expert in a discipline. It means also valuing humanity and the earth environment we live in. Each of us has a duty to our children and grandchildren. If we are not willing to honour that kind of dedication then we should be certain we have no children, since growth is a cancer. Progress a gift.

OUR MOST DIRE WORRY! —- CLIMATE Aug 2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on August 15th, 2017.

There is one thing that seems to be repeated daily since we are not taking adequate action. Countries or corporations say their impacts will be felt twenty or thirty years out. With the rapid release of methane (twenty times worse than CO2 in creating heating.) from melted perma frost, that could be a way too late.

Super-heatwaves of 55°C to emerge if global warming continues

Heatwaves amplified by high humidity can reach above 40°C and may occur as often as every two years, leading to serious risks for human health. If global temperatures rise with 4°C, a new super heatwave of 55°C can hit regularly many parts of the world, including Europe.”

People who do not respond with direct action are part of the problem! Reduce your CO2 footprint. Buy green electric energy. Buy electric or hybrid cars. Use solar panels. Look up “defeating climate warming” on the net.

CHINA’S RULE OF FUNNY LAW 8/1/2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on August 1st, 2017.

CHINA’S RULES OF FUNNY LAW JULY 2017

Should Canada sell off defence, security, airports, technology to China to woo a free trade agreement. First there is no free trade in China. This dictator is becoming more vicious and has his targets on the world.

In data gathering there are two main problems arising in China.
1. They expect companies operating in China to hold their data on the cloud within China.
2. They will regulate companies that want to export data to other parts of the worlds to get a permit to do so before they can export data.

“China is rejigging its laws to keep data inside China”. China laws are “over broad and mischievously vague”. “Foreign technology firms fret they will be forced to divulge intellectual property to government inspectors, … that such secrets will not be passed on to local rivals .. with no guarantees. — The new law may be a Trojan horse designed to promote China’s aggressive policy of indigenous innovation.” stated in “Going Its Own Way”, The Economist. June 3, 2017. pp 60-61. China is buying up land in Africa which Africa needs to feed it’s millions. China is no friend of Africa. China no doubt has its eye on Canada’s prairie lands. And Saskatchewan just stopped the sale of Potash Corp to China which in a legal dispute through the WTO would then cede Potash Corp to China.
It is ludicrous to think that one can woo a free trade agreement by selling off companies to China that we use for our security. Is Trudeau’s thoughtfulness on what is free trade getting in the way or is a corporation about to make huge windfall profits? We can learn from Vancouver where foreign money drove up house prices. If we sell off a high tech company we will be buying back product at highly inflated prices and higher profits will go to the new owner.

We know from experience that selling off our large corporations nets the profits to a foreign country. After all Exxon netted a $40 billion profit for two years, much of it from Alberta’s oil wealth while Alberta got a $2.00 a barrel royalty making it a laughing stock. Alberta also today has a huge debt unlike the experience in Norway which has a multi billion dollar heritage investment fund. Who does capitalism benefit?

Free trade has its limitations when the other country does not play by the same rules. Do not be fooled that a county of thirty million can control rule of law in a country of one billion people. Trump as well is now devising his own rules, will we never learn? It strikes me that we may have to redefine what it means to be a real Canadian.

Quick Review of Green Energy 7/27/2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on July 27th, 2017.

The Economist July 15 p 66. Global increase in temperatures could in this “century could impact US GDP by as much as -5.6 %”. The very rich cause a a lot of the global warming. The poor pay most of the cost. Further warming could cause “falling crop yields and labour productivity,and rising mortality and crime.“ ///.p.61. “ In some countries …solar photo voltaic … are now cheaper than gas.” And green technologies are getting cheaper while fossil fuels costs are getting more costly. The momentum is with green technologies . There was more new green tech power produced than fossil fuel power in the last year. The liquified natural gas project in BC has just been scrapped. “Pointman ” says the money for green energy has been withdrawn. I don’t know the details of this but it is worth researching.

TRUMP – HIS CHARACTER DEFINES HIM

Posted by Willard Anderson on July 27th, 2017.

Donald Trump — His Character Defines Him

This man as leader of a society is the antithesis of everything for a society that is healthy, cooperative, good, sane and progressive

He lies on a regular basis. Would he not want an investigation into the Russian affair if he had not been in collusion with them? Would you want your doctor to act like this?

He grabs money at anyones expense. He has filed for bankruptcy and avoids paying creditors. Would you want such a man to design your tax system?

He pulled out of the Paris agreement. Today millions are dying from fossil fuel created CO2 and climate warming weather disasters. Would you send your children to a school that behaved this way?

He dominates disregarding others opinions behaving like a dictator and and disregards the inherent principles that have made the USA great .He moves the USA towards dictatorship. Would you choose to live in such a country?

He allegedly defrauded students at his Trump University, taking from those who are trying to better themselves. Would you want your church to behave like this?

He places members of his family to important advisory positions The fathers of the USA constitution disliked rule by primogenitor as a bad system. Would you want to live in a country with Trumps style of rule through his children permanently?

He has encouraged his followers to harass and even harm those with different opinions than his own. during the election campaign Would you want your church congregation to behave like this?

If you answer these questions honestly then one should vote accordingly. He is a man who has taken the USA away from greatness.

Democracy at Risk 25 April 2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on April 25th, 2017.

Democracy April 2017 There are “60,426 spam comments blocked” and “44,741 malicious log in attempts” to stop freedom of speech on this site.
Democracy is more than the right to vote, Turkey can tell you that. Democracy is dependent upon democratic institutions, rule of law, an unbiased supreme court, the right to charge anyone who breaks the law: political figure, non resident in Canada, corporate leaders, a political party, trade agreements that do not give the “right of a citizen” under the Charter to corporations in order for corporations to get the rule of law over people. Trade deals that do not undercut citizens rights to law, to right of access to Canadian resources without interference from other sovereign states especially when they are murderous dictatorships who want undisputed rights to Canadian resources. A system which recognizes the rights of labour and the right to be in a union to get fair return for work done. It is peculiar how many of these rights have disappeared from Canadians. Our so called democracy has been weakened greatly by leaders like PM Harper, by international agreements signed and about to be signed. By a leader who reneges on a promise for a more democratic voting system – Trudeau.
China wants undisputed rights to Canadian Resources in a free trade agreement. That would have meant that Potash Corporation’s fertilizer would be shipped not to our provinces but out to the land China controls in Africa to feed Chinese while Africans starve unable to feed its millions which are starving during the current drought, despite having some of the worlds best agricultural land, but much now controlled by China. Such is the case for many of these issues that political agreements freely sign away under the guise of an impervious curtain and of unrequited mutual benefit. Canadians are not fools!
So what do we need to do?
Alberta suffers debt due to the 40 $ billion profit extracted from Canadian petroleum by Exon. Alberta has become a laughing stock. They now want Canadians to subsidize tar sands to the detriment of all Canadians due to: extreme floods, ice storms and heat waves from climate warming. Fossil fuels have now killed 51 people in Canada.
Harper’s omnibus bills remain hidden to this day. Why are they not explained in the press? It is also a controlled press that deteriorates democracy further. Without information there is no truth, without truth there is no free vote, without free vote there is no democracy.
Free trade with a murderous dictatorship is bound to include the principles of a state a as large as China , who now endeavours to control Australia, which they consider in their sphere of influence. But sphere of influence is a false principle designed to maintain colonial devices. Global capitalism has gone that way.
Many mechanisms of state are now politically controlled not by the people but by party politics.

Change back : 1. The of electoral commissioner beholden to a party, so this allows that that party can no longer be sued for interrupting a free vote, such as the conservative “robo call” fiasco.
2. The RCMP beholden to a party not to citizen oversight.
3. An electoral system that allows for full control regardless of a 39% vote and no representation for representatives elected by the Green Party, a forward looking party.
4. A supreme court whose decisions can now be over ruled by the Minister of Justice, a party member. These are the motivations of dictatorship. They must be changed to once again become democratic institutions.
5. A Charter of Rights and Freedoms designed for the people that has been highjacked by business Corporations which use it to defer human rights and freedoms.
6. A potential free trade agreement that could make Canada a vassal of China, feeding that murderous regime at the loss of Canadian rights to our own resources. Money or China’ s wealth would buy all.
7. Further China demands a forced extradition treaty, which would mean sending supposed villains back to a murderous lawless dictatorship.

Benjamin Franklin said that,
“Anyone who would trade freedom for security [or profit] deserves neither.”
9. A USA free trade agreement – NAFTA, that allows US companies to sue us for lost profits, and they have, but with no reciprocal duty to the same principle for Canadian companies.
Would Pierre Trudeau roll over in his grave at what his son is doing?

CHARTER OF ACTION ON WORLD RIGHTS 7 APRIL 2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on April 7th, 2017.

CHARTER OF ACTION ON WORLD RIGHTS
Problems for Priority for Benefit of the Young, 7 April 2017
These are extremely important.

1. Deal with climate warming, switch to green energy or non fossil fuels to reduce the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere start pumping it out with the same fervour we pumped it into the atmosphere.

2. Clean up farming so it doesn’t dispose of unused fertilizer by draining it into the oceans and adding to the 500 dead zones in the ocean.

3. Reduce tree cutting until there is empirical evidence that forests can regenerate.

4. Stop over fishing and reduce trawler use until the threat of fisheries collapse no longer occurs and threatens loss of an important food supply.

5. Clean up the oceans . Clean up plastic in the oceans and stop plastics from entering the food chain.

6. Require all parents of 16 yr old children and younger to take parenting courses where participation can be confirmed.

7. Ensure via scheduling that educational opportunities become accessible and universal.

8. Encourage basic health services and impose court penalties directly impacting dictators that refuse.

9. Use the precautionary principle and do not allow human exposure, consumption or ingestion of toxic chemicals until they are proven safe.

10. Require forms of government to be classified as to the amount of input the people have who are being governed.

11. Require annually the distribution of countries’ wealth to be publicized to the people of the country and if it is unfair spell out the problems publicly.

12. Transfer away from fossil fuel use, requiring first world countries to set the example and third world countries to be scheduled in over ten years.

13. Impose a one child policy globally until it is proven that the population can be sustained in that country without destruction of the biological stability of the earth. Measures include no further destruction of ecosystems and regenerating those ecosystems that are integral to the health of the earth.

14. All political and law imposing agencies be required to have a biologist with veto power on his/her governing advisers.

15. Recognition of the other neighbours in our galaxy or universe is mandatory to long term existence. climatedisaster.com

Convergence of Self Imposed Disasters April 2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on April 2nd, 2017.

CONVERGENCE OF DISASTERS MARCH 2017

We are in a time of lethal convergence of events. Today the president of the USA is destroying research that investigates and confirms man made climate warming . He is responsible for killing people. We are in a time of measuring success not by empirical means, but by how we feel about it. We taste in our mouths, the pride of a new car, the joy of living with bigger bed rooms for our children. But this is not enough for most people to get a grip on how we fit in this place and time. They are internalizing pleasure not relating to the whole. We are in a time of purchasing whatever we want or whatever the advertisers want. We do not connect the means and impact of producing the product to the joy of eating or using the product. A time of isolating ourselves from reality. What we think we are giving our children may be hurting them more than helping them. We are in a time of measuring all reality by its immediate impact upon our emotions not upon how its impact relates to the “no man is an island” philosophy. If we are a part of all that we have done then we have separated ourselves from any real understanding between me and who we think we really are. This is a several leagues separation between me and who we think is responsible for the impact of our actions. This is a world in which it is not safe to behave without knowing ourselves. The curriculum writers and educators are responsible for not teaching how to evaluate our whole selves and how we relate to our habitat – the earth. Some of us go on faith alone, without seeing the connection of how that faith at times warps the reality of faith driven actions and instability of the earth. We may be faith criminals without seeing it. But like law we cannot think that ignorance is an excuse for our destructive behavior. In faith terms we are then doing the work of the devil. This separation between perception and reality is the problem of the leader of Syria and his relentless slaughter of people who only wanted to be heard. Hence he is a criminal and should be tried in the World Court.
For ourselves we have:
– created five hundred dead zones in the oceans mostly from farm fertilizer run off.
– caused over fishing and brought on an expected collapse of ocean fisheries by 2050, already under way.
– cut too much of the worlds forests.
– caused destruction of habitat and hunting thus have created animal extinctions at a rate of one thousand times faster than the natural rate.
– used nicotine based insecticides and killed off too many bees that pollinate 25% of our crops and lowers food productivity.
– burned fossil fuels that caused climate warming and amongst other problems is causing the progressive drying of the Brazilian rain forset one source of oxygen for the planet.
We are eroding the basis for human life in order to produce the capitalistic growth at any cost model that is killing children reflected in Africa where drought is threatening a million people due to fossil fuel caused drought.
As our senior meteorologist in Environment Canada said, “We ain’t seen nothing yet.” Is this what you wish to impose upon our little children? The thing is it is late in the game and we need to change now. We cannot use some esoteric argument that we will lose some financial wealth if we do, we will lose some of our fat of the land if we do – is that a fair trade for the health of our children the most defenseless of the world. For some of us our parents went through the first world War, The Great Depression and the Second World War. Compared to that hardship can you sacrifice a little bit for the sake of the children? What is your level of greed? I need your answer now. The children need your answer now. What do you say?
Mobilize May 1 st at the halls of political leadership. Demand the switch from fossil fuels to green energy within five years scaled at ten percent the first year.

Leave your answer as a comment below.
Please distribute this widely.

Yale Environment 360 Reports Growth in Solar 1 April 2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on April 1st, 2017.

Yale Environment 360 published a graph which shows the tremendous growth in solar, “Utility-scale solar more than doubled its capacity last year”. Apparently solar can now be competitive with coal or natural gas. In Canada if one transferred the subsidies from fossil fuels to solar and wind and green energy generally then green energy would be less costly. As well the full costs of fossil fuels have never been added in to fossil fuel companies costs in their economic formula. The tax payer pays fossil fuels companies costs. Fossil fuel caused storms and destruction and death now annually represent around one trillion dollars in costs globally. Death rates are increasing with millions in Africa at risk this year from drought. For the sake of the children we have to make changes toward green energy now.
