Please wait a few seconds for the comments to load at the bottom of this page. Then read the ideas other people have shared and reply or add your own knowledge. The space for comments is in a pale font. It’s good to give your comment a title by selecting it and clicking the “B” (for “boldface”). And you can italicize passages with the “I”, indent, add hyperlinks (with the chain symbol) or even attach a photo or graphic from your hard drive by clicking the paperclip at the right side of the space.

The people who participate in Metta Spencer’s online gatherings and visit this website care about a great variety of different issues. I have been conducting a series of 6 FREE ONLINE informative, inspiring, practical workshops about how you can make more progress about issues you care about. I invite you to sign up for my next series, running from mid-May to mid-June. See information, including how to sign up at this link: Sign up NOW for FREE ONLINE WORKSHOPS so you can make more progress on issues YOU care about – Glen’s Parallax Perspectives

Nuclear weapons are an extremely serious existential danger, but for the past 30 years since the Cold War ended many people have stopped paying attention. Four well informed people developed a 4-session course “Nuclear Weapons Nowadays: What You Can Know and Do” and have conducted it FREE through Zoom video with participants from many places. We invite you to sign up to take it in May. You may choose Saturdays or Tuesdays. Here is information about the course and how to register: Sign up now for FREE informative, fascinating 4-session course on nuclear weapons – Glen’s Parallax Perspectives

To summarize, there are 3 methods, I worked out thanks to Adam’s guidance.

1) Comment in Youtube under the numbered video if you have immediate resources, recent news reports or personal observations. I did this for videos 174 and 200 because Metta had told me my emails to her would be more useful if added once the videos were uploaded. What seems to be impossible is to publish comments on the https://tosavetheworld.ca/videos/#comments or https://tosavetheworld.ca/videos pages contrary to what the the boxes say. I strongly suggest rewording the boxes: “Then you can discuss by posting your comments on Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/c/ToSaveTheWorld/videos

2) If you have longterm bibliography or other resources, comment under individual topics listed in the OVERVIEW PAGES. I will probably do this for one or two areas where I am knowledgeable, such as Famine — Metta already suggested I do some rewriting there.

3) If you have longterm analysis with bibliography that is not related to any of the OVERVIEW PAGES, it is possible to start a new topic with a Subject stated in boldface following the directions in “To Post a Comment” but this would not be easily read by users of the videos despite what that box says. It would land unread amid a general catch-all of Town Hall chat. At the moment I can’t think of any overwhelmingly important new topic, that is not covered in method 1 or 2. And if I ever use method 3 I will probably just make it a one-para abstract of a much more thorough Google doc (with tiny.url link), where I’m not restricted by WordPress coding. I’ll suggest one example of a new topic, although much of it overlaps with Save The World’s existing topic “global warming”:

Visions of resiliencehttps://tinyurl.com/yb9zq7k5 is a compilation of several hundred NGO and ecologists’ proposals, mapped on the SDGs (UN Sustainable Development Goals). Not because the SDGs are the best answer or a final one, but to allow meaningful comparison. At the beginning, I have added a new goal 0: a culture of resilience: work by artists, psychologists, activists and NGO researchers, which SDG4 (education) does not adequately cover. Visions was drafted during the UN debates of 2010-2015, revised several times since. This is a collaborative document. Readers are invited to add to it; I have avoided duplicating entries of ideas that crosscut a number of SDGs, but you the reader are welcome to do add or duplicate any item you think important. You are also invited to compare it with tosavetheworld.ca‘s Platform for Survival. There may be items missing from one overview that complement the other, such as the Platform’s planks on war, radioactive, and cyber risks.

Hello. This is a test comment.

two years in a row, i flew west to the far east and transferred planes in Hong Hong.. flights were hard to find and seats were very full. My seat mates told me that they were culturally oligate to come home for new years. most come home for the mothe. this is the end of jan to the end of feb basicaly. all forms of ground transport in China nearly grinds to a halt with th pressure of all this travel. Yet China was fully aware of an infection in Nov. prior, and did not stop travel, and all these north americans came back before travel was stopped… I am not blaming the individuals. we are encouraged to take a multitude of vaccines prior to travelling…but we pop here and there with no health concerns in a normal year,… im just saying travel is not a privilege to be taken lightly, and should be given quarantine etc time going forward.

Further evidence to back up Franklyn’s concerns about methane
https://thebulletin.org/2021/01/broken-record-the-planet-is-getting-hotter-and-hotter-and-hotter Bulletin of Atomic Scientists
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methane_clathrate not just in the Arctic but off the West Coast and subject to release by earthquakes
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_methane_emissions methane release already underway, not from clathrates but from tundra

these farmers are having the screws to them, because the laws coming forward will increase monoculture, not permaculture, and insist that fields be planted with stuff like monsanto grain, which cant be saved from crop and must be purchased… and on and on. why cant they wear turbans? why cant they be middle class and still be prosecuted like our farmers wereyears ago here in canad. now it is imposible to family farm in canada; only mega farms survive with these policies

1) By reflecting away 30% of ISR the albedo, which would not exist w/o the atmosphere, makes the earth cooler than it would be without the atmosphere like that reflective panel set on the dash. Remove the atmosphere/GHGs and the earth becomes much like the moon, a 0.1 albedo, 20% more kJ/h, hot^3 on the lit side, cold^3 on the dark. Nikolov, Kramm (U of AK) and UCLA Diviner mission all tacitly agree.
2) the GHG up/down welling, “trapping”/”back” radiating/delaying, 100 % efficient, perpetual warming loop requires “extra” energy which it gets from
3) the terrestrial surface radiating that “extra” energy as a near ideal .95 emissivity black body which
4) it cannot do because of the non-radiative heat transfer processes of the contiguous atmospheric molecules.
1+2+3+4 = 0 Greenhouse Effect + 0 Greenhouse gas warming + 0 man caused climate change.
All science backed up by experiment, the gold standard of classical science.
