THIS WEEK: Wish more of your tax dollars could stay in your pocket? This week Planet Forward spoke with some experts at the US Green Building Council about the potential savings in building more efficient schools! FROM OUR BLOG: Check out USGBC's statistics on improving schools and universities around the country and how much it can save in this week's guest blog. FROM OUR NEWSDESK: We could use the savings too, according to this article submitted by Planet Forward's Charlie Rybak which says the U.S. is seeing the most expensive natural disasters in history! FROM OUR PARTNERS: For more from USGBC experts Rachel Gutter and Rick Fedrizzi check out their ideas by going to the COMMIT!Forum group on PlanetForward****!

GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE - MOST SEVERE CONSEQUENCES AND BEST SOLUTIONS: Global warming "THREATENS" possible human extinction!! However, all of the hype and propaganda about global climate change - which is quite possibly inevitable and due to changes in the Sun and the Earth's water vapor system - also threatens the development of all third world nations - where majority of unnecessary suffering occurs. These topics are rarely broadcasted to people!! I studied systems engineering and finance at the "Ivy League" University of Pennsylvania. I took a seminar - in 1997!! - with dozens of visiting world renowned EXPERT lecturers that CONVINCED me that global warming "THREATENS" to eventually decimate or annihilate the current human population!!! (Oddly enough, I wouldn't mind if - and have indeed already resigned myself to the fact that - other species will be given back some ecosystem to thrive!) It is a long and complicated explanation but briefly: only a small fraction of the current population of 6 billion will be able to survive on the fresh water and arable land available on Earth when it (eventually, some day) irrevocably switches from an ICE AGE dynamic equilibrium to an ARID AGE steady state! Can we stop it? and how quickly will the change occur (dozens, hundreds or thousands of years)? are the only real questions in my mind at this point!!!! Questions?? EXTREME ENVIRONMENTAL changes on Earth constantly and CONSISTENTLY cause: 1. extremely rapid - a few months to a few decades - dominant species extinction followed by 2. nearly as rapid alternative species "blooming" (exploding diversity) This is THE ONLY consistent, long term biological process that occurs on Earth: No one species has EVER dominated Earth for long due to hitherto unpredictable and uncontrollable CATASTROPHIC ecosystem changes (moderate ice age to EXTREME arid age is merely one of many - and it usually takes some time...but why risk speeding this up?...) Just recently the scientific world announced that - according to current verifiable data - 30% - 40% of known species may be extinct by 2050 - due mainly to climate change! All debate is reasonable. However, is it reasonable to continue doing something - not utterly necessary for our current or future survival - that "debatable" scientific evidence clearly shows MAY some "debatable" day MERCILESSLY PLAGUE or perhaps even END our species prematurely?!? Because that is exactly what nature has always intended and ALWAYS done! Test and improve the Earth's many genetic codes' SURVIVAL ABILITY!! I audited PENN's bi-weekly SYSTEMS ENGINEERING seminar of various international scientific experts back in 1997! The whole story only came together after over 20 world renowned experts - from diverse disciplines - had extensively weighed in on multifarious and extremely complex scientific topics. I was CONVINCED of a real and absurdly extreme and "immediate" THREAT to humanity - worse than any other I have studied (entropy, plague, viruses, asteroids, orbital/solar system change, peak oil, war (nukes in Asia?), premature, "Frankenstein-like", scientific advancement (genetic engineered weapons!)...notice how terrorism is not worth mention - it doesn't even register as a threat to our species!) - with a real but uncertain probability: Why throw dice unnecessarily?? WHAT WE SHOULD DO: 1. Develop better climate prediction technology - including early waring systems for the most likely catastrophic climate scenarios (collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, rapid loss of the Greenland Ice Sheet, large-scale changes in ocean circulation systems...) 2. Develop technologies to improve the energy-conversion efficiency of coal-fired Chinese power plants (these will produce the lion's share of CO2 over the next century). 3. Develop technology: alternative energy, energy conservation and efficiency, "decarbonizing" technology. 4. Plant trees, use reflective paint, buttress buildings better, develop crops that grow better in warmer climates, rethink zoning codes for coastal areas. 5. Promote more energy efficient habits and lifestyles through education and monetary and social incentives (EVERYONE SHOULD WORK ON THIS). Live only where you can WALK or BIKE to almost every daily activity, shun activities that use energy sources, prefer more natural (outdoor?) social activities (lights at night are unnatural and actually stressful to you and cause you to produce less melatonin, increasing your cancer risk! Libraries are better - more accurate, useful and healthier - sources of information than the internet!) *******www.MySpace****/JamesGraff *******www.GarageBand****/artist/Jame... *******www.JamesGraff**** I made a home made video: "She's My Whole World" written in 1985, produced, engineered, photographed, edited, sang and performed entirely by James Graff. (Pictures are of Liina Kairo - in no particular order - pretty amazing how the photos and audio seem to serendipitously fall into place!!) "If you were to dedicate your life to easing suffering on earth - now and into the future - how would you do it? What would you do?" (Work/play ONLY for charity?) sang, played all the instrument, recorded and produced this song on four track cassette as a DEMO in my MOM'S LAUNDY ROOM!!! The song was partially inspired by the Police song "Every Breath You Take" which I pay homage to with the line: "...and every breath I take..." I hope that every one catches the allegory/analogy and the moral "to the story": it's a song about a girl who is my "whole world" but on the second most obvious level it's also about our world the planet earth - better treat "her" right!!! Date Created 1985 Lyrics Lyrics for "She's My Hole World" (Copyright 1985) She's so beautiful, Done up in green and blue In such a Godly way, I can't keep away And she's last and first, In quenching all my thirsts She's gives me streams and lakes, and every breath I take She's My Whole World She's not just my girl, She's My Whole World She's not just my girl, She's My Whole World And I'd do anything, Just to keep her hole 'Cus all my night time warmth, comes from deep within her soul The analogy goes on, but not in just one song, She's My Whole World I wish you all only knew the way she makes me think that it's nothin' new that we're on the brink Our next generation's becoming extinct It's time we renewed our pact don't you think She's not just my girl, She's My Whole World She's not just my girl, She's My Whole World And such a pretty face, No other could replace She's every thing I feel, without her nothing's real The analogy goes on, But not in just one song She's My Whole World When you and I aren't here, the stratosphere disappears And when you're not by my side Armegeddon gets in my eyes And when we fight nuclear bombs ignite Such a fright...site...bright...white... She's my only world...
