Shouldn’t the scientific message be
Protect World from Economy?
You know your problems are serious when eight scientific organizations urge the next U.S. president to “protect the country” not by way of changing the predatory economy but instead by means of “funding for research and forecasting” to dodge the climate change.
Instead of urging an immediate end to the exponential growth economy and demanding a zero-growth, low carbon, waste-free oikonomia for managing the environment, welfare of humans and other living species, and a system of ‘housekeeping’ for the planet’s natural resources to sustain life on Earth, the country’s top scientists are looking for ways of serving the economic Titanic.
The group includes the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society.
“We don’t think we have the right kind of tools to help decision makers plan for the future,” Jack Fellows, the vice president for corporate affairs of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, a consortium of 71 universities, told reporters on Wednesday.
Indeed not, Mr. Fellows!
BTW, is the Union of “Concerned” Scientists among your lot?

- US GDP (2007 PPP) : $13.8 trillion [World Bank]
- US CO2 Emissions (2007) : 6,825.733 MMT [based on CDIAC data updated by MSRB/CASF]
- Virtual CO2 content of US dollar (2007) : 494 g (The average amount of CO2 produced each time a dollar was paid or received in 2007. SEE: How Much Carbon Dioxide Does Your Money Make?)

The Exponential Growth Economy’s White Elephant!
“Blind monks examining an elephant” by Itcho Hanabusa (1652–1724). Each blind monk can only “see” the part of the elephant he has examined.
Blind Expert #1. It’s the oil addiction!
Blind Expert #2. Nay, nay; it’s the coal-fired power plants.
Blind Expert #3. Nay, nay; the SUVs.
Blind Expert #4. Nay, nay! It must be the sprawling suburbia.
Blind Expert #5. Nay, nay! It’s …
Blind Expert #6. We NEED more trees to protect the economy.
Blind experts Nos. 1 – 8 urged the next U.S. president to “protect the country” not by way of changing the predatory exponential growth economy, but instead by means of “funding for research and forecasting” to dodge the climate change.

Stop Omnicide Campaign
The Management School of Restorative Business (MSRB) and Creating A sustainable Future (CASF) are launching a campaign to stop omnicide-the killing of everything.
The wide-scale collapse of Earth’s ecosystem that is currently occurring will lead to the extinction of humans as well as other species in a very short time, unless the trend is halted.
We believe that concerned individuals could, even at this late hour, cause a major paradigm shift in the “goals,” perceived values and direction of civilization steering humanity away from certain extinction and help save a fragment of the future for the next generations.
The Campaign Team invites you to participate in the Stop Omnicide Campaign. Please post your comments and suggestions and let us know how you can help publicize the campaign.
