China has attempted for far too long to forgo environmental issues in order to continue its economic march forward. For three decades the Communist Chinese Government posted 10% year over year gains, recently that number has come down to 6% to 7% merely because it is so big now that there are not enough markets in the world to sell to for the amount of production that is possible there.

Many a world leader has stated that Climate Change is the most serious issue confronting humankind. But, I ask; what would a politician know about Climate Science if they are not even scientists?

CO2 Is a Molecule - It Is A Gas Above Negative 109.3 F, It's Not Evil

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 06:58:10 -0600

When it comes to Global Warming or Climate Change, I for one am not all that concerned about mankind's CO2 output - in fact, I am not too concerned with CO2 at all. Let's discuss this shall we? You see, human emissions from CO2 actually is a very small part of the total CO2 in the atmosphere (about 3% of the total CO2 output on Planet Earth is all). A large wildfire in Australia puts out more CO2 than all of China in 10 months, if you can believe that. If global warming alarmists are worried about CO2 output, then perhaps they need to go talk to coal burning European Nations, who by the way are also driving diesel cars emitting more CO2 and soot.

Begin by being kind to your planet, by being respectful of other people's Intellectual Property and tangible property. Keep your hands, eyes, ears and nosy nose in proper alignment with respect for yourself, others and especially for your planet! We are all one, we all occupy one planet, for now, live harmoniously and the world will reward you splendidly- live acrimoniously and the world will give you more of where your intention gets fed. Be spiritually alive, not spiritually dead to clean, conscious-free living.

The Meaning and Reasons For Sustainable Development

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:08:35 -0500

Sustainable development is the strategic development of structures that seek to meet the needs of present and future generations through effective management and maintenance of natural resources. The main aim of sustainable development is to ensure that the present environmental needs of humans do not encroach on those that the future generations would also need and use. It is bent on sustaining thus 'maintaining' or 'preserving' the natural resources that we have now so that the future generations would also have them in ample supply. An "unsustainable situation" occurs when natural capital (the sum total of nature's resources) is used up faster than it can be replenished or replaced. Sustainability requires that human activity only uses nature's resources at a rate at which they can be replenished naturally.

Is Global Warming a Plot to Control All of Humanity?

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 06:53:06 -0500

It's no secret that the global elitists of the Club of Rome want to limit human population. Indeed, we probably do have more people on said planet than we need, and although it isn't a total crisis yet, someday maybe in 50, 100, 200, 250 years it certainly will be. Some of these global elitists say the problem is Capitalism, as it creates abundance, but it also creates such huge economies of scale that it rapes the planet of resources and converts things into trash and waste - and if this continues the entire planet will be polluted with waste, plastics in the ocean, pollution in the skies, and agricultural fields laden with toxic chemicals - sounds dire indeed, or so their claim goes.
