NEWS TO THINK ABOUT

Will a new Germany election affect the work of the G7 ? (see our Quicktake for more).

Can decarbonization work at all to stop climate change in its tracks while major countries continue to pour 40Billion tons/yr CO2 into the atmosphere? (see our Quicktake for more)

Is there significance to debating solar geoengineering liabilities when solar radiation shows up on a GOOGLE search as the #1 cause of Global Warming? Consider that as solar radiation becomes more intense, it will continue to affect the environment and a nation’s operations.

CRITICAL NEWS THAT JUST DOESN’T GO AWAY
The News Keeps Coming. So When Will COVID End?

By Shannon Pettypiece: “CDC director Rochelle Walensky reiterated the agencies position that N95 masks not be worn by the public during a press conference Wednesday.”For reasons supported by science, comfort, cost and practicality, the CDC does not recommend routine use of N95 respirators for protection against Covid-19 by the general public,” Walensky said. “Abundant scientific laboratory data, epidemiological investigations and large population level analysis demonstrate that masks now available to the general public are effective and are working.”The article further mentioned that “Federal agencies have said the general public shouldn’t wear those masks to ensure that there is enough supply for health care workers and medical first responders.” REF: NBCNEWS 2021.(see our Quicktake for more)

Are Climate Conditions At A Peak?

John Kerry is the U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate. On July 27, 2021 “John Kerry tells CBS News that extreme weather around the world makes action on climate change urgent”. In the Interview he was asked “Do you feel that there’s a new sense of urgency internationally to do something faster against climate change?” He replied “I think there’s a growing sense of urgency, but I don’t think it’s quite at the peak level that needs to be on a coordinated basis around the planet because there’s an enormous amount we have to do.” LISTEN HERE…

WHAT’s REALLY HAPPENING TO EVERYONE’s LIVES?
THE GLOBAL MESS. WHEN WILL IT END? Vaccines and Boosters still not stopping Covid. A devastated population after almost 2 years. A failure like no other, with contradictory news from the WHO, NOAA and CDC interviews and expert physicians (hint: you have to read between the lines). Global economies remain disrupted. But the LOWY institute told us in 2016 that global output was downgraded by the IMF 16 times since 2012. The wealth gap is getting bigger within certain nations despite rising inflation. Does that mean the wealthy can afford the rising prices but the average citizen cannot? Did you know some cities are starting to sink? And what happened to all those sinkholes…did that go away because it’s not in the news? It is a fact that the world migration issue will change everything as earthquakes/volcanoes dislodge the people from their homes, and fires destroy forests, lands and animals. So where was the WWF since 1960 as the rate of wildlife extinction increased to 60%. Protests around the world of social injustices continue. The people matter, or did we forget? Nature is being torn apart by earthquakes and volcanoes. So I guess we’re waiting for the “BIG ONE”? The ozone layer hole is now bigger than Antarctica over the South pole. It’s a wonder there has been no “recommendation” to use sunscreen SPF 1000. And last but not least, did you know practically every country has a war going on ( Ref: Countries At War) . So at this juncture, are we wrong in thinking that either we will kill ourselves for real or if we wait any longer, the climate will destroy us instead. Is it possible this is why Elon Musk thinks humans should go to MARS? Or is it just about investing in the space sector?
A QUICKTAKE LIKE NO OTHER What’s all the discussion about….Does Capital Outflow really matter when the viability of the Planet and the existence of the Human Race is at stake? Yet the news talks about everything: inflation, the supply chain, the latest space efforts, world corporate tax, an IRAN nuclear deal. So it’s news as usual. Taking a close look: the news about negative interest rates and talk of its benefit to world exports. But let’s think of the flip side: it comes at the expense of the consumer’s bank savings which will shrink. Live on Bloomberg News: From IMF 2020 news in one of their reports, which indicated World Trade Output was at 2.9%, but there was “synchronicity” among the global economies; is this possible in the middle of the Trade Wars? Let’s find out what else seems to matter Here…
THE REAL CLIMATE DILEMMA. Did you know that the climate catastrophe on the horizon has been known since 1992? And re-published in 2017 (Ref: “The Second Notice). And so now we’re in a scramble to fix carbon emissions and create new sources of energy that of course must be economically advantageous. So where are our priorities: making money or saving the planet? It’s bad. How bad? Check it out Here…
A NEW APPROACH TO SOLUTIONS: THINK – “COLLECTIVELY”. An interesting perspective on international relations…The facts tell us we are facing an “existential threat”. What would ultimately happen if Nations cannot transcend their individual concerns and work together? There would be a bonus…There wouldn’t be any enemies around to worry about. And so we have been developing some Transformative Solution Scenarios (TSS) to offer help. Here…
JUST WHAT IS THE REAL STORY? There are Global Groups with scholarly backgrounds professing T.I.P. (Transformative Innovation Policies) . Is now the time to make policies, or should we go directly to making solutions? Prestigious universities talk about SDRs ( Special Drawing Rights) for extending funding capabilities to certain nations in times of economic crisis. But how effective would SDRs be if world tensions escalate or if a climate disaster strikes? Have you considered the law of diminishing returns : as the climate conditions and its ripple effects escalate at a faster rate with more intensity, this will put us over the brink because we are not acting faster than the occurrence of those climate events. So where is there value in discussing TIPs, SDRs, or Financial mitigation scenarios as suggested by the FRB? Because if we don’t know by now, every nation is facing planetary-wide disaster. So let’s put this in perspective Here
REMEMBER THIS: The bottom line…Mother Nature is on the warpath. The Planet is slowly coming apart, Economies are out of balance,the Social fabric is being torn by Covid, discrimination, and violence. And distinguished public figures and experts are formulating goals, principles, policies and working hard at finding solutions. But wrapped around all this work is a failing climate waiting to ruin it all. Perhaps it’s time to think about how times will change Here…
