Reducing Energy Consumption: The Only Long-Range Solution to Climate Change

Unless we’re willing to give up some of our power over nature—our power to extract and transform resources and deliver the goods that we have come to rely on—then we’re destined to careen from one disaster to the next until our worst fears are realized.

Fires, floods, killer heat-waves, droughts, and hurricanes are ravaging homes and families throughout the world. Some fear that this might be the new normal; however, the truth is that this is just the start of something much worse.

“An increasing number of people around the world are suffering from ever more severe and frequent impacts of climate change, yet government action continues to lag behind what is needed.”

“The Federal Reserve’s role is not to surrender our planet to corporate polluters and shepherd our financial system to its destruction,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib, among the Democrats urging the Fed to end fossil fuel financing.

“No equitable or just climate solutions can emerge from such an unjust process.”
 

And needless to say we urgently need to drastically cut the budget of the greatest consumer of oil and producer of CO2 on the planet — the US military budget and redirect such spending to healing the earth and building a more justi global community.

Preventing Climate

Catastrophe

& Nuclear War!

The Two key issues of our time amid a global pandemic

v

 

 

Peace & Justice for all including Mother Earth!  Respect the Sacred!

     The planet is burning and the fires are becoming more widespread and intense. At the same time, storms and mass flooding are increasing. Climate change is moving toward Climate catastrophe at a rapid pace. On a positive note, the United Nations has taken action to officially declare nuclear weapons illegal under international law. But 9 Outlaw rogue states continue to possess nuclear weapons: The U.S. Russia, China, Great Britain, Israel, France, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Many of these countries continue to build new nuclear weapons, including super-sonic missiles and first-strike weapons, increasing the risk of intentional or accidental nuclear war and global destruction. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists famous Doomsday clock is not set at 100 seconds to midnight.

     The younger generations are demanding action and rightfully so. Humanity has no time to waste, We need a massive shift in thinking and resources away from waging war and toward restoring right relationships with people and the planet. It is time for global Ho’oponopono – to make right. Profit and greed have been the driving forces toward destruction. The common good must become the new driving force for justice, peace, and the earth. The present global Covid pandemic is underscoring our need to move away from selfishness and to act for the common good. The US needs to lead by example. The $Trillion dollar annual US war budget must be redirected to preventing climate catastrophe and uplifting the least among us.  Learn from native people to respect the sacred!

     More than 50 US corporations, including Nike, and FedEx, paid no Federal income tax last year on more than $40 billion in profits. The existence of a space race between billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson is a clear message that these billionaires aren’t being taxed nearly enough. We live in a world where over 1 billion people don’t even have a pair of shoes or flip flops. The inequality between rich and poor, and the pollution of our planet are shameful and criminal.  What’s your priority?

Multinational Corporate Profits

or Mother Earth?

“The only way to prevent nuclear war is to stop building nuclear weapons.”

Ancient Hawaiian Wetlands – Navy Chemical Dump – Threatens Ewa Shore Ecosystem

Ancient Hawaiian Wetlands – Navy Chemical Dump – Threatens Ewa Shore Ecosystem

From John Bond on Oahu

Hunt Corp admitted today in an HCDA Kalaeloa meeting that they are
stockpiling contaminated soils on a parcel next to homes, businesses, clinic.
 

HCDA Kalaeloa’s big dirty secret: Massive Navy contaminated dump
directly below identified ancient Hawaiian karst water pond, and
directly above US Fish & Wildlife endangered Hawaiian species preserve
where school children are given tours.

Few people are aware that the US Environmental Protection Agency opposed
this project in written testimony to the Navy. The Navy also has consistently
refused to acknowledge the Karst water flow system that is allowing the
contaminated soils from military bases all over Oahu that were dumped on
this site near the ocean to leach into the shoreline ecosystem and foodchain.

The chemicals in the soil contain known carcinogenic PCB’s and other
cancer causing chemicals. Many studies since 1999 have revealed these
chemicals
are far more dangerous to humans and animals than Navy would admit when
they pushed the project over EPA objections two decades ago.

SB2386 SD2 HD2  signed by Gov. Ige into law

for the construction, modification, or expansion of a waste or
disposal facility. Specifies that “waste or disposal facility”
excludes individual, state certified, non-industrial redemption
centers. (HD2)
