    Justplain and Joe, and Dedushkyn, and Ernie, and Constance, this is exactly what I wanted to happen with this thread, that is happening right now, finally.

    Both Justplain and Joe you have differing point of views, expressed politely, clearly, and even with a suggestsion from Joe, to which I may listen.

    Everyone explain their point of view and how they see what can be done, great. (corrected, was writing on iphone, the keys are too narrow).

    Also, starting to find solution is great. For example,
    Quote Justplain: However, requiring public policy to invest in helpful tech, and to regulate out bad tech, is the main way this society can achieve this. As well as voting with your wallets.
    We all agree that pollution and lack of care for our planet is a problem. From exposing our points of view, which may differ, or not be in accordance with Suzuki (who also think the planet needs less pollution), we open the talk and start seeing further for solutions.

    Thanks to all who are directing the thread in a worthwhile discussion.

    Personnally, the first thing I would push for is take off the law that make corporation equal to human citizens in their rights, which seem to me utterly wrong and unfair to individuals. No invididual or even groups of people have the finance to fight those corporations. Change the law, making corporations will, needs and behavior subservient to humans, not equal, nor above. Push and lobby politicians to change that law. Make campaigns to make the public aware of this law and to change it.

    The ONLY solution is for each of us to stop supporting these companies. Buy a bike, live local, live simple, the only way to take power from these corporations is to find ways to stop giving them power. It will need a critical mass to have any real impact so we all need to talk about this and not sweep it under the rug because someone doesn't like the speaker of whatnot.

    I completely agree with you about this statement. Unfortunately, my local “environmental activists” refuse to compromise with me. They hold dogmatic beliefs about CO2 and methane being pollutants and driving climate change - they won’t agree to local and simple living without also penalizing CO2 and methane producers. (i.e. people like David Suzuki)

    Just to be extra clear about the danger of including CO2 and methane in any regulatory or political solution - CO2 and methane are natural products of breathing and digestion (human life). One doesn’t have to be very creative to realize how utterly evil and nefarious that kind of legislation could be. It is not a stretch to see how the totalitarian tiptoe would be used to eventually legislate population control (eugenics-another popular topic with my “environmental activists”, but they prefer to call it “overpopulation” ). Grrrr, the agenda is so evil, and most local activists are oblivious to the wider agenda.

    I wasn't considering the pragmatic situation as it stands today. I merely stated the truth, that corporations created the problem and so they are culpable. Of course all expenses get passed along to consumers, whether right or wrong that is how it is...

    The other thing to remember is that corporations no longer price their goods according to cost but accordong to what the market can bear. For that reason, it can be argued that corporations have the room to make reparations without any cost to the consumer. The problem is. Modern accounting that will look at profits before and after and conclude their companies took a hit and lost revenue - revenue they should never have had in the first place.

    Regardless of anyone’s thoughts on mankind-driven climate change, ecological stewardship in a capitalistic society is super important.

    On the other side of town, folks kept developing peculiar cancers at relatively young ages. Some investigative work found a local company was disposing of carcinogenic waste in several different wooded areas at night. This got into the ground water, and now miles of my country neighbors are buying their water.

    The west side of town had the same issue a few months ago with ethylene oxide emissions from a manufacturing facility that was in violation of state regulations. Lots of cancer cases.

    Yes, exactly. And these are the issues that people and media should be paying attention to. Unfortunately, the “environmental activists” can’t get past man made climate change. It’s a total “man made” distraction to real environmental issues. Climate change debate serves the global elite agenda, that’s why they will continue to push it.

    Now, that global warming comes from our activities or from the sun or from a new place we are passing through in the universe becomes irrelevant if we have to protect our specie against global warming consequences.
    As with diseases of the body, so with diseases of the planet.

    The better one understands the true underlying mechanisms and causes of the disease, then the better will one's remedies be.

    For example, if global warming is primarily caused by petroleum based energy and chemical industries and uses, then the mechanisms and solutions will be quite different than they would be if global warming is primarily caused by changes in solar system activity.

    I suspect that we were seeing above on this thread an energized polarization of people (a favorite tactic of the deep state, in my conspiratorial mind set) between (1) those who observe the grave harm being done to our bodies, our families, our society, our environment, and the life and planet around us, and (2) those who are being harmed by the "solutions" and "cures" being imposed on us to remedy these harms, or who doubt the validity of proposed analysis and offered solutions.

    What if the grave harms that we each observe, to ourselves and to life on this planet, are quite real?

    What if we are being sold false narratives as to the true causes of those harms?

    What if these false narratives are being used to cover up more grievous harms to humanity and to life on this planet?

    What if those false narratives are being used to justify false remedies?

    What if those false remedies cause us and this planet yet more harm?

    What if the polarization that this creates, between (1) those who know first hand and feel deeply these harms, and (2) those who know first hand that the primary remedies being sold us are as fraudulent and harmful as chemotherapy or vaccines ... what if this polarization intrudes on our healthy discussion and better shared understanding of what is really going on?

    What if that better understanding is the key to a better future for humanity and for this planet?

    How would we conduct a public conversation on these matters if such an understanding was such a key?

    "Global warming" is a hoax and a multi-million dollar business.
    Scientists, like David Attenborough, can be bought.

    I totally see your view, and understand it. But ... I think that just because there is conflation and confusion around what attributes to what poison, and how those poisons effect the earth and its precious life, (our planet is the only thing for maybe a trillion miles or more in any direction (that we know of) that actually has Life on it -- it IS special), doesn't mean we should look the other way or believe out of despair that we cannot do anything about it. In fact, the way I see it, it means we should be more focused on driving the discussion to "what can we do ourselves that we know will make a difference" instead of "well carbon tax is just another tax grab so obviously there's nothing wrong with the environment" -- which is a very prevalent attitude.

    Just because governments won't or can't do what is needed, just because industry won't or can't do what is needed, doesn't mean we should lash out against people who genuinely just feel a massive connection to the spirit of nature and the pain being felt. This is happening right now. What we need to do is guide the dialogue to "what can we do personally?" -- political bias, "taxes", corporate interference, don't even need to be a part of that conversation.

    And thanks for discussing specific points with a bit of thought out reasoning without just parroting some propaganda I've already heard.

    Right on point there Paul. I like how you are thinking about this. How do we conduct a public conversation if such an understanding was such a key?

    In the words of Einstein, what I think is that "We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them."

    If we are to have any chance of succeeding in this business, it feels as if we need to find another way, maybe even a way that has never been thought of before to start this process.

    For the longest time, we've had all the biggest, best and brightest minds working on all of this and yet despite all our best and current efforts, things are only getting worse and not better.
    Despite all the information we have, we have been unable to form a clear concensus around what is really happening.
    As John Naisbitt once said, "We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge".

    The issue that we have is that people have not been ready, willing or able to, up until now, to set aside anything that we cannot agree upon or do not find relevant - and seek to truly understand what it is that we want for ourselves and each other.

    Ok, if you want research that debunks climate change and CO2 levels fake science, then here you go. As well, Flash has asked for lifestyle alternatives, and here are some.

    1) 'Climate Change' claims refuted:

    a) Carbon Dioxide Levels

    Carbon Dioxide levels in the past have been much higher than now. Scientists also note that geologically speaking, the Earth is currently in a “CO2 famine” and that the geologic record reveals that ice ages have occurred when CO2 was at 2000 ppm to as high as 8000ppm. In addition, peer-reviewed studies have documented that there have been temperatures similar to the present day on Earth when carbon dioxide was up to twenty times higher than today’s levels. And, a peer-reviewed study this year found that the present day carbon dioxide level of 400 ppm was exceeded — without any human influence — 12,750 years ago when CO2 may have reached up to 425 ppm.

    http://www.climatedepot.com/2013/05/...pecial-report/


    b) Temperature and Climate Forecasting Errors

    Here's a short (14 min.) take from an hour interview with one of the leading research experts in the world who identifies that the climate prediction computer models are faulty, and that the best one, Russian, is not used because it doesn't give the desired results. This short clip misses the part where he tells us that the scientists have to produce the desired results or they lose their funding because the government is the only ones interested in this research.

    https://video.foxnews.com/v/58516671...#sp=show-clips


    2) Independent Living:

    a) Foam Cement is “the BEST building material in the world.”

    “It is an ultra light masonry product weighing only 1/5 of the weight of ordinary concrete,” “It is composed of 1 part water, 1 part cement (which is powdered or ground limestone), 1 part non toxic dish soap. The detergent is foamed using air from a compressor and a pump or motor to agitate the mixture (I use a conventional drill and paint mixer to blend it all together and it works fine). The expansion of trapped materials results in ”air” or oxygen molecules which comprise the majority of the material (I believe close to 80%) upon expansion.”

    “it’s fire proof, water proof, insulating, bulletproof, earthquake proof, hurricane and monsoon proof, impervious to insects, rodents provides acoustic insulation and is 100% free of toxic of harmful substances, which makes it 100% biodegradable and completely recyclable. It is all natural and produces no by products. Also, as if it weren’t’ enough, it won’t rot, rust, corrode, warp under cold or heat or otherwise decompose in at least 30 years for my home so far.”

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=llsQL2bPWqY


    b) Hempcrete homes are a good use for industrial cannibis:

    http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/b...hemp-1.3872979

    c) Urban farming:

    The Dervaes' urban homestead is sustainable and dense. They grow and raise 400 varieties of vegetables, fruits, and edible flowers that amount to about 6,000 pounds of food a year, enough to feed the family with surplus left over to sell. Fresh eggs from chickens round out their diet.

    I have been working on this problem for the last 10 years, and outside of “let’s get government to legislate our problems away”, I get no response when it’s time to actually do anything other than something that is beneficial for the individual. Zero collaboration. And that’s why I have concluded this is a generational problem - it will take strategic planning of two to three generations in advance to see any effective change for the better, and likely not until people are really suffering.

    So yes, I have homeschooled; taught, designed and practiced permaculture and sustainable living, researched and experienced community living. And the number of people who understand the problem and are willing to tackle it through action = zero

    So I’m having some trouble taking any of you seriously.

    I have used the quote from Einstein myself many times. I believe it, but it’s just more words. What action do you propose to generate real change?

    I have many ideas of my own, but why share until there is the intelligence and wisdom to actually influence real change. Until then I’m resigned to do my best as an individual to set an example as best as I can - it’s a sad solitary existence but I just don’t see the level of commitment from this group or anything others I’ve been a part of.

    How many here participate because of its entertainment value - we like talking about ufo’s and all things paranormal, etc., but is that it?

    Maybe in 20-50 years (generations) minimum, in my way of thinking, there will be the ability to start reversing the damage. But I think even that is being optimistic. We are much more likely being in a lockdown AI artificial construct by then.

    There was a fun sounding Avalon meetup in Nevada. But aside from entertainment value, what was accomplished? Any strategic planning and/or rituals setting anything remotely approaching the annual Bilderberg meetings?

    Who will rise to the challenge to do more than talk?

    Quote Posted by Paul (here)
    I suspect that we were seeing above on this thread an energized polarization of people (a favorite tactic of the deep state, in my conspiratorial mind set) between (1) those who observe the grave harm being done to our bodies, our families, our society, our environment, and the life and planet around us, and (2) those who are being harmed by the "solutions" and "cures" being imposed on us to remedy these harms, or who doubt the validity of proposed analysis and offered solutions.

    What if the grave harms that we each observe, to ourselves and to life on this planet, are quite real?

    What if we are being sold false narratives as to the true causes of those harms?

    What if these false narratives are being used to cover up more grievous harms to humanity and to life on this planet?

    What if those false narratives are being used to justify false remedies?

    What if those false remedies cause us and this planet yet more harm?

    What if the polarization that this creates, between (1) those who know first hand and feel deeply these harms, and (2) those who know first hand that the primary remedies being sold us are as fraudulent and harmful as chemotherapy or vaccines ... what if this polarization intrudes on our healthy discussion and better shared understanding of what is really going on?

    What if that better understanding is the key to a better future for humanity and for this planet?

    How would we conduct a public conversation on these matters if such an understanding was such a key?
    Right on point there Paul. I like how you are thinking about this. How do we conduct a public conversation if such an understanding was such a key?

    In the words of Einstein, what I think is that "We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them."

    If we are to have any chance of succeeding in this business, it feels as if we need to find another way, maybe even a way that has never been thought of before to start this process.

    For the longest time, we've had all the biggest, best and brightest minds working on all of this and yet despite all our best and current efforts, things are only getting worse and not better.
    Despite all the information we have, we have been unable to form a clear concensus around what is really happening.
    As John Naisbitt once said, "We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge".

    The issue that we have is that people have not been ready, willing or able to, up until now, to set aside anything that we cannot agree upon or do not find relevant - and seek to truly understand what it is that we want for ourselves and each other.

    "Global warming" is a hoax and a multi-million dollar business.
    Scientists, like David Attenborough, can be bought.

    Yes, the Holocene has ended. What's next? Ice Age.
    Global warming hoax hoax perpetuated by multi trillion dollar oil and big banking industry. It's likely multi causal but we are playing a very large role. LOVE carbon taxes.

    I have been working on this problem for the last 10 years, and outside of “let’s get government to legislate our problems away”, I get no response when it’s time to actually do anything other than something that is beneficial for the individual. Zero collaboration. And that’s why I have concluded this is a generational problem - it will take strategic planning of two to three generations in advance to see any effective change for the better, and likely not until people are really suffering.

    So yes, I have homeschooled; taught, designed and practiced permaculture and sustainable living, researched and experienced community living. And the number of people who understand the problem and are willing to tackle it through action = zero

    So I’m having some trouble taking any of you seriously.

    I have used the quote from Einstein myself many times. I believe it, but it’s just more words. What action do you propose to generate real change?

    I have many ideas of my own, but why share until there is the intelligence and wisdom to actually influence real change. Until then I’m resigned to do my best as an individual to set an example as best as I can - it’s a sad solitary existence but I just don’t see the level of commitment from this group or anything others I’ve been a part of.

    How many here participate because of its entertainment value - we like talking about ufo’s and all things paranormal, etc., but is that it?

    Maybe in 20-50 years (generations) minimum, in my way of thinking, there will be the ability to start reversing the damage. But I think even that is being optimistic. We are much more likely being in a lockdown AI artificial construct by then.

    There was a fun sounding Avalon meetup in Nevada. But aside from entertainment value, what was accomplished? Any strategic planning and/or rituals setting anything remotely approaching the annual Bilderberg meetings?

    Who will rise to the challenge to do more than talk?
    People need to be willing, able, have the capacity and have the capability to respond.

    This has been my call to action for about the last decade . I'm beginning to sound like a broken record which means that my call to action might not be relevant to anyone! This is important to note because it means that if what I have to say is not relevant, it means that I need to go back to the drawing board.

    We gather together the largest round table the earth has ever seen and work together on the overall solution to humanities plight. But in order to do this, we need to first be able to agree on what direction we want to take, otherwise, where are we heading? So in order for us to agree on which direction we need to take, we need to firstly work out what we want for ourselves and each other. The common ground, the common-passion if you like.

    Hi Joe,

    You can't change others, so getting frustrated when they don't change is futile and only detrimental to yourself. It may take 20 years to get the proper awareness, yes. But it may take 100 if we all give up with poor attitudes.

    What I find helps people to change is to not try to change them, but just merely and consistently share what you do and why it gives you benefit / satisfaction, with others. If you do it right, you'll pique someone's curiosity and then the seed will start to grow. You can't shove saplings down people's throats - they will not accept that, but if you can get in just one tiny seed, you never know when that seed will start to grow within them. This is how the world will change - force doesn't work, and some time will be needed.

    Keep up the good fight!


    I agree that conflating the carbon argument with any environmental concern is detrimental to progress, but it is why I often write stern sounding posts to make distinct again that it doesn't matter what one thinks about "carbon" or "climate change" - the world is getting in pretty rough shape due to humans in so many areas, and no one can deny that.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Schwarzenegger the governer, but he had an excellent speech trying to highlight the same - about how the real problem isn't whether climate is heating or cooling, the real problem is the distraction that argument applies while mass destruction continues on in other ways.

    For a conservative, he had a pretty appropriate view on global and local environmental issues. That's a quality I like to see in a conservative politician.

    I think you are right, I sometimes presume that the Avalon forum is awake and aware to a greater degree than is true. It is a group relatively more awake than the general population but I forget most times that we are still basically babes in the cradle when it comes to Truth with a capital T.

    There are probably some minimum requirements of understanding for moving culture forward including: 1) the earth is not flat (Bill’s made that one a requirement), 2) climate change while ongoing and real is not driven by or caused by human activity or CO2, 3) the elite use knowledge of the mysteries/magic to influence human culture in ways that are beneficial to themselves (parasitic culture), 4) reality goes beyond the physical and includes a spiritual/multi-dimensional reality.

    There are others, but that seems like a decent list to start with. If we could agree to these as a community, even if we have discussions and disagreements about the details, then perhaps only then can we move forward to collaborate (dare I say conspire?) together to counteract and influence in a way far superior to the current parasitic model.

    So although I understand Avalon is not at this point yet, I think if a group of at least 3-7 people were at that level and ready to collaborate, then I think that would be the beginning of a real shift to a new world. But it may be 20 years or more before we have a group of 7 people ready to agree enough to be able to work together. It would basically be the Avalon version of the annual strategy/planning meeting of the Bilderberg group.

    While that is sad to me, yes I understand that’s where we are at. So let me plant the seed. I remain open and willing to begin a discussion, a strategic planning session, that will have as its stated goal the freedom of humanity for all and the end of the current parasitic paradigm. It will use magic and an understanding of the mysteries, so if you’re afraid of that then you’re not ready. So when that group of people are ready to begin now or 20-30 years from now, let me know.

    Late Professor Bob Carter (James Cook University, Australia) said :Saying "CO2 causes global warming" is like saying "Lung cancer causes smoking."
    He found that throughout long geological history, there was always a slight increase in CO2 in the atmosphere (long before industrialization) after a warming, not the other way round.
    He was a geologist, so he knew what he was talking about. Not like David Attenborough or somebody whose speciality is something else.
    Climate has ALWAYS been changing, period.

    And exactly to my point above (http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...=1#post1285499)... seems like a good reason to dismiss the destruction of our planet, doesn't it? This is how well it works - you can spell it out right in front of people's faces and they still will redirect the conversation to a pointless argument in dismissiveness of all the harm that is being caused our planet.

    Global warming/cooling and environmental pollution are apples and oranges.

    It is the human arrogance that it is the master of this planet and can change it anyway to suit its needs.
    It is actually the other way round. Humans may have been give the task of a care-taker, but not the master.

    It is worthwhile to note that "global warming" was a perfect excuse to build nuclear power plants, the worst destroyer of the environment. Can you say Fukushima?
