My Passion, 14 Billion

vig8yh8jh8j8uj8

More and more, month by month and now even day by day, I continue to focus on creating and delivering my message.  That means sharing it cleaner, clearer, and better.  And getting it out to more persons, more of the right persons who are ready to receive it, and helping powerfully furnish and support personal transformation.

Two new videos. First, sharing my message generally:

———- ———-

Ask yourself ‘what is going on with our species, our planet? What has led us to the challenges we face.  The universe, as we know it, has been around for 14 billion years. Consider the matter. Try to grasp the size of that reality, the size of THAT wave! What are we up to as a species? What have we done to our planet?

We do not seem to understand what we have done to our planet. We do not get how we are tearing at the fabric of our planet:

Our World in Chaos

guestgogohho

I am stepping deeper into my new passion as a “Climate Chaos Messenger.”  I think we need to discuss and realize the climate emergency we are already in.  As we do this, we will dare to call out the greatest of our humanity and what lies beyond that. Here is my guest commentary on the topic from the Chico News and Review this week.

Our World in Chaos, By Peter Melton. This article was published on 04.28.16:

‘The author, a part-time Chico resident, is an author, promoter, spiritual coach and “climate chaos messenger.”

‘Now that the dust has settled from the rah-rah, back-patting sessions of the Paris Climate Summit, the world’s citizens face the daily news (often even in the mainstream media now) that things are shifting quickly—much faster than previously expected. The predicament formerly known as “global warming” or “climate change” is now called “abrupt climate disruption” or “climate chaos.”

‘Many conservative projections show drastic changes occurring by 2100; however, if things are happening faster than expected, then those changes could happen much sooner. Scientists crowned 2015 as the hottest year on record, and now 2016 is likely to take that crown.

‘We’re already seeing big changes: oceans acidifying, coral reefs dying, arctic ice melting. We have unprecedented fires and floods, climate refugees, extreme weather events—and this is just the beginning.’

For full article, continues in full, here:  ‘Our World in Chaos:  The devastating effects of climate change are happening faster than anticipated‘.

Earth Day, Phantoms of a Pathology

 

corporate-greenwashing-by-pete-dolack-via-climate-and-capitalism

Strongly recommend, you all read:  ‘Earth Day and the Phantoms of a Pathological Culture‘, by Kenn Orphan.  It starts:

I must start with a confession. I have always been troubled by the concept of Earth Day. I understand its origin and why it came to be, but as an environmentalist I see it as window dressing an unfolding disaster of monumental proportions. It’s not that it is useless. Raising awareness is never useless.

But over the years it has morphed from an almost spiritual movement for ecological consciousness and justice into an opportunity for corporations and politicians to tout their empty gestures at “saving the planet” all while they mercilessly plunder it. It also has the effect of neutralizing public outrage at the dire state our world is in. It spreads an all too pervasive “feel goodism” to a situation that is truly existential, not only for countless other species on the planet but for our own.”  Continues at link.
