UN Panel Confirms Renewables, NOT Nukes, Can Solve Climate Crisis.

From progressive.org:

The authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has left zero doubt that we humans are wrecking our climate.

It also effectively says the problem can be solved, and that renewable energy is the way to do it, and that nuclear power is not.

The United Nations’ IPCC is the world’s most respected authority on climate.

This IPCC report was four years in the making.  It embraces several hundred climate scientists and more than a thousand computerized scenarios of what might be happening to global weather patterns.

The panel’s work has definitively discredited the corporate contention that human-made carbon emissions are not affecting climate change.  To avoid total catastrophe, says the IPCC, we must reduce the industrial spew of global warming gasses by 40-70 percent of 2010 levels.

Though the warning is dire, the report offers three pieces of good news.

First, we have about 15 years to slash these emissions.

Second, renewable technologies are available to do the job.

And third, the cost is manageable.

Though 2030 might seem a tight deadline for a definitive transition to Solartopia, green power technologies have become far simpler and quicker to install than their competitors, especially atomic reactors. They are also far cheaper, and we have the capital to do it.

Mr. Liefooghe with the Mayor of Ghent in the exhibition there.

The project “Creation Assistance” consists of real solutions for the environment and works of art around the same theme.We have brought this project to both Bruges and Ghent successfully, in the form of an exhibition. We bring 112 new solutions for the environment.(to follow on the site later on…)
Although the EU is an absolute world hit in both the scientific and organisational fields, like every child the EU-community needs time to grow. In the meantime we have one-third of the EU population who are EU doubters, because they are having difficulties surviving. We can remove these doubts, if the people could feel that the EU has committed itself to helping them in their survival.
We wish to organise an exhibition that really stands out, partly in the esplanade in front of the Eu-parliament and also in the corridors of the Spinelli building.
 
This exhibition will offer the solutions necessary to take a run-down town, village or place and turn it them into veritable small paradises.where everything is being cultivated and taught for their survival. And this in several of our member states, such as can be seen in the two YouTube examples at the bottom.

These paradises of survival shall be realised by the local populations.

In the exhibition in the Eu-building we can follow-up on the development of these “paradises” in several villages or places in the member states.
In the esplanade in front of the Spinelli building, we can create a temporary heart-shaped meadow to show there a number of decorated cows for a specific length of time.

To produce one kilo of beaf steak one needs 15,000 liters of water, amongst model cows.

What we are looking for are the contacts and the permission to hold the exhibition in the EU-parliament, plus the necessary contacts with the member states, who can appoint us a village or place, where the “paradise-survival” project can take place.

Project Alive and Kicking!

DSC_5260

Dear Readers,

I’ve had a meeting with Mr. Frank Liefooghe this morning and he has further explained to me his views and hopes for this project. He has sent and will be sending me much more information, which will land on this site shortly.

He also asked me to take down the Club of Rome logo, until such time as we have official permission to use it from their board.

Mister Will Beckers has been invited to join the project and I hope to hear from him soon.

So far the progress report.

Let’s connect, let’s make a difference!

The Ivory Trade Is Out of Control, and China Needs to Do More to Stop It

This is horrific and MUST stop!

World

Ride the subway in a Chinese metropolis like Beijing or Shanghai and chances are you’ll come across an ad depicting mutilated Chinese characters.

Xiang, the first character, means elephant, except that lacking some strokes, it is as if the animal is missing the tusks. The second and third characters stand for tiger and bear — but the missing strokes make them seem to be losing bones and gall bladder. The fourth and last character, ren, or human, is cut in half.

The ad is intended to stifle demand for the body parts of these wild animals, which in China are commonly thought to possess naturopathic benefits (or, in the case of ivory, ornamental ones). The market has soared on the back of the country’s growing wealth, and that has been a disaster for the most sought-after animals.

This year has been particularly dark, especially for ivory, the trade…

Follow up on my other blog from today. Great idea, isn’t it!?

Ingenuity can go a long way in meeting people’s essential needs with the simplest of materials.

The recipe: Start with students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), add basic materials destined for dumps and landfills around the world, mix with filtered water and bleach, install, expose to sunlight. And voilà!–a light that will last for 10 years!

The Solar Bottle Bulb is based on the principles of Appropriate Technologies – a concept that provides simple and easily replicable technologies that address basic needs in developing communities.
