Rosie Reed takes on climate change deniers and commenters that are usuall to dim to understand the issues and are politically motivated. The first video shows the climate demier troll is a pretty satisfied man that really doesn't care but likes easy 'wins' and to make people squirm.
The second shows Rosie Reed that tries to give rational answers to trolls and climate sceptics and deniers. It's painfull to see her try to teach people something who are not sensitive to real arguments, and disrespect science as a commercial enterprise.
The showdown is to much honor for the troll, but it also shows how easy rethorical techniques can win a discussion for the side that doesn't care what it has to say, as long as it shuts up the opponent. The world is full of satisfied disinterested men and woman that sit on positions that don't help the world forward. It is a fact the fossil fuel industry keeps a lot of people happy and satisfied. So it seems the debate is not where we can really win. We can only win by selling the future as independent of the debate. The healthy green cheaper cleaner survivable future..
Morocco already has a parabolic trough solar thermal plant, and it has been courted by Desertec to do more, to become a power producer for Europe. But it turns out it will work with Saudi developer ACWA Power to build the biggest solar plant on the planet, and rightly so!
It is the first of a two-phase project, due for completion in 2020, that is expected to cover 3,000 hectares and have a generation capacity of 500 megawatts, enough to met the electricity needs of Ouarzazate's 1.5 million residents.
The project to generate electricity is slated to cost 420,- Euro per power consumer. That either means it is intrinsically extremely profitable or that it makes electricity progressively cheaper. We see the latter in Germany where electricity prices drop when the sun is out or the wind blows (see how well they balance each other here). The third way, which is our roboeconomic way, is to create money based on the market value of the energy so that it can be traded, sold, and used, without disturbing the larger money supply system (which is carbon based, we call it the carboncredit system).
">">Soon Morocco will realize its land holds limitless bounty, and the dryness and unihabitable nature of it may become a thing of the past. Let's hope by then there's no ban on increasing rainfall or clouds, to maximize the output of the solar plants.
Schaliegas, gewonnen uit leisteenlagen, zorgt in de VS voor gezondheidsproblemen. Door wetten die zonder duidelijke oorsprong werden geintroduceerd mogen artsen niet communiceren over de chemicalien die patienten ziek maken. De gasmaatschappijen zitten overal tussen waardoor zorg voor patienten niet goed mogelijk is. Ondertussen blijken schaliegas en de zn. fracking fluids zeer schadelijk te zijn met effecten op dieren, insecten en mensen waar deze worden gedumpt.

The Climate message is not difficult to spot in this George Michael song, although it was written in the 90's, its prophetic for our current situation : Dwindling food reserves and a carbon pregnant atmosphere and a public clinging to carbon wealth. "The wounded skies above say it's much to late..". But don't pray, take action!
Er zijn genoeg oplossingen, simpelweg veevoeder verbouwen in Europa. Lupine, klave, bonen, en zelfs algen die zijn te kweken op basis van gier! Alles is beter dan het klimaat probleem vergroten door houtkap, intensieve landbouw, logistiek over lange afstand en intensieve veehouderij.
Beauty was meant to inspire, motivate, instill love and care, not tie us to the carboncredit treadmill towards global doom. As part of Earth Week 2013 celebrities are reminding us of what matters. Emma Watson is one of them.
It's usually the love and blessings of being a celebrity that inspires them to do good deeds. It is natural to help others, if we where supposed to always fight we'd still have teeth like chimpansees, we would always be on edge. Instead we are benign versatile creatures that can do much more than destroy, proof of that is all around us.
We need to be stronger towards those that take and destroy in order to dominate and go on taking and destroying. Those that insist on continuing the use of fossil fuels for decades to come while renewables can produce thousands of times more energy, wealth and prosperity.
We want to do continuos campaings like the above to promote the concept of a renewable powered world with abundant energy, food and water. A world that can restore its ecosystem without polluting. One where the dominant instinct is care, not destruction.
Women (can) do much more than figure in simplistic scenes of beauty and green...
A real simple way to help greening our planet and creating more responsible companies is by boycotting tax avoiding corporations. They use their tax advantage to push out local stores can producers. This causes a uniform carbon fueld business environment we have no control over. Stop drinking coffee at Starbucks and your money will come back to you (not get stuck on the Cayman Islands) and you sustain local businesses that can innovate and adapt independently, more flexibly. The carbon based present is uniform and of mediocre quality, the renewable powered future is one of diversity, quality and culture..
