Climate Change and its Disastrous Impacts on Earth and Humanity: Reclaiming Our Memories: how can we face a future of climate change if we have forgotten our past?
Climate change along with the disastrous effects it will have on the earth and humanity is being ignored by much of society. I differentiate between the earth and humanity because many people only relate to the problems that humans might suffer, not fully understanding that what damages the earth also damages us. During the 1992 UN Earth Summit in Rio, media headlines were screaming “We’ve only got 20 years to save the earth!” An environmentalist dryly pointed out, “No. The earth will survive. We have 20 years to save humanity.”

The troubling evolution of corporate greenwashing
The term “greenwashing” was coined in the 1980s to describe outrageous corporate environmental claims. Three decades later, the practice has grown vastly more sophisticated

The Climate Crisis and Imperialism
The outcome of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which concluded over the weekend in Paris, has been hailed almost universally by politicians and the press as a triumph of international collaboration that will pull mankind back from the brink of ecological disaster.

Scientists Lead Huge Climate Change March in NYC

NEW YORK — Lab-coat-clad and picket-sign-wielding scientists were on the front lines of the People's Climate Change march yesterday (Sept. 21) along with hordes of students and others concerned about the planet's changing climate.

The march, organized to bring more public awareness to climate change effects and policies, was planned in anticipation of the UN Climate Summit that will meet at the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan tomorrow (Sept. 23). The march was divided into six different themed sections and scientists marched in the "The Debate Is Over" section. Many carried signs with slogans like "We are the 97 percent consensus," "Science is not a liberal conspiracy" and "Friends don't let friends deny reality." - Over 300,000 people - READ MORE

- (Notes: RFK Jr. was prominent in this march, and made national news. I had a dream about RFK Jr., the same morning, Sept.21, w/ no prior knowledge(!) - Also relevant to WARMING minds: There was a large march in Russia against involvement in Ukraine,(!), and there was, of course, the vote regarding Scottish independence).
