BY VICTORIA CRAIG President Obama unveiled changes this week to the federal college loan program. In the days following the announcement, there’s been no shortage of opinions on those changes. Fox Business explains the details of the plan. “Here are the elements: It would consolidate government loans, cut interest rates by half a percent, limit payments to ten percent of income and forgive debt after 20 years.” An editor for the Wall Street Journal argues while this plan may seem like the government is finding solutions to the rising price of college tuition -- it’s really the government creating a bigger problem for American college students. “The federal government’s role has been not in making it more affordable, but making it more expensive by decades of subsidies and it is bizarre why is this a market where prices rise not only faster than inflation but in decades even faster than health care costs?” As tuition costs continue to rise, the New York Daily News argues, the new plan would do nothing to teach young borrowers how to be responsible with their money. “This plan … simply reinforces the culture of irresponsible borrowing that led to the housing bubble. Think about it: If you can take your private loans and roll them into a public program .. .and those loans are eventually forgiven, then what's the point in responsibly paying them back?” But a writer for Think Progress says government loan subsidies are what’s enabled millions to go to college who otherwise wouldn’t or couldn’t have. “Without subsidized federal loans and grants... students would be pushed into the arms of private lenders, whose rates tend to be far more suffocating... Americans would be forced into even further debt bondage, unable to make ends meet and lead productive and prosperous lives under the weight of student loan debt.” Finally, a writer at Policy Mic says at the very least, this plan helps generate conversation about the costs of higher education. “Many have called the student loan crisis the next bubble that is waiting to burst. Obama and education leaders should seize this opportunity to engage in a national debate about secondary education before this particular bubble pops.” Transcript by Newsy.

BY VICTORIA CRAIG You're watching multisource political video news alaysis from Newsy. A five-hour hearing on the now-bankrupt solar energy company Solyndra, which received half a billion dollars in government loan guarantees, quickly turned political Thursday. NBC Nightly News explains the details of the hearing. “Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who was in charge of the program defended his agency’s handling of the situation under aggressive questioning from skeptical Republicans who allege big campaign donors had too much influence over this loan program.” Chu is the first high-level member of the Obama administration to testify about the Solyndra loan program. But as the LA Times suggests, he refused to be cornered into an apology -- or admit to any political favors. “Chu firmly pushed back against allegations that political favoritism and bureaucratic incompetence led his agency to approve the Solyndra loan guarantee... [He said] the company failed after demand for solar equipment slackened and panel prices plummeted from the effects of China's heavy subsidies for its own manufacturers. House Republicans assert that Chu should have seen such a fall coming.” But as Fox Business’ Neil Cavuto explains, Chu testified the White House never contacted him about Solyndra and never raised any questions or concerns about the company -- but he did take some form of responsibility. “Under pressure and under oath, Chu telling the House Energy and Commerce Committee that he made all the decisions involving that loan that crashed and burned into the now famous solar panel company. Further, Chu saying he knew nothing of these reported early warning signs raised as far back as 2009 that Solyndra might have serious financial problems.” Despite Chu’s insistence politics wasn’t involved in the loan guarantees and that the Department of Energy knew nothing about Solyndra’s financial situation, the Wall Street Journal argues timing of a round of layoffs paints a completely different picture. “Solyndra LLC postponed a layoff announcement until the day after the 2010 midterm elections following a push by the Department of Energy for a delay... In October 2010, Solyndra was struggling financially and in talks with the Energy Department about restructuring its loan. Solyndra's chief executive, Brian Harrison, informed the Energy Department that he wanted to announce some layoffs internally...” But deciding who knew what and when isn’t the end of the battle. As CBS explains, another of Republicans’ biggest problems with Solyndra’s loan restructuring is taxpayers were second in line to private investors to get their money back after the company went under. “Republicans pointed to an internal e-mail from last February. A Treasury Department official advised Energy that only the justice department could sign off on a deal to make taxpayers subordinate to private investors. But Chu said he didn’t need to consult Justice because his legal experts signed off.” At this point, it’s not clear what the next step is for the House Energy and Commerce Committee. But The Hill is reporting the committee isn’t ruling out asking for potential testimonies from White House aids.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – World Vegan, World Peace: A Conscious Choice - P5/10 Chicago, Illinois, USA August 11, 2001. Episode: 1814, Air Date: 2 September 2011. If everyone told us, all the Masters of old told us that we are the children of God, then we are the children of God. Why should Jesus lie to us about our origin? Why should Buddha tell us the untruth about our greatness? So we have to believe it. We are the children of God, no? So to go back to be the children of God again, it's so easy. But since we have come to this slumber as you have put it, we just have to wake up. There are two things to do only, very simple: the physical and the spiritual. Physically we have to clean ourselves in order to recognize ourselves again. Suppose your daughter has been lost on the streets for many days or many months and she has been in hardship, because she's without home, without parents, and when you find her, you cannot even recognize her. She wouldn't even recognize herself, the way she was before; she'd be dirty and unkempt, and tattered, maybe very sick and troubled. Yes? So, the first thing, clean her, no? Bathe her, give her new clothes, feed her, so that she becomes strong and healthy again. Now, similarly, to go back to our True Self, the two things to do: physical and spiritual. Physical: clean ourselves by turning back to the compassionate lifestyle, God-like lifestyle, Heaven-like lifestyle. No harming, no killing others. Just everything it said in the Bible, or in the Buddha's sutra (scripture) or in Mahavira's sutra, or even in the Qu'ran. We misunderstood the Prophets when we kill others, even for God's sake; we are not to do that. God never teaches any of us to kill. The first commandment in the Bible is “Thou shall not kill.” That includes the animals, because God did not say thou shall not kill men but can kill animals. No, it was very clear already, I have mentioned before. So now we have to return to the God-like. You know she has to behave now like Miss Avila, the way she was before. Even if she has been on the street, maybe bad influence or something, met some bad people and maybe misbehaved and not behaved nobly or, like the daughter of the great commissioner and madam like that, she has to return to family life, a good-girl lifestyle now, you see? Same. So physically we clean ourselves by keeping the five peace principles: Not kill, not steal, not tell lie, not commit wrong sexual relationship except with your partner, and do not take poison, like intoxicants, drugs, alcohol, cigarette. These are poison for the body. Meat is also poison. We know it by now already. So we have to eliminate all these in order to keep our body clean and healthy to receive the strong, powerful grace again, because a sick body cannot assimilate good vitamins or nutrition. It could even turn into poison. Yes? If your stomach is poisoned somehow and you drink milk it gets worse, for example like that, or if you eat something, you get worse. Yes, food turns into poison. So now, first of all, physical, we clean our “house,” clean the “temple.” Live the way a God-child would live. No harming any, just helping, being benevolent, being virtuous. So, you see, the five universal principles are in all religions, more or less modified, but it's the same. We keep those five precepts. That's the one thing; be vegan. It is also included in those five precepts, because do not harm or do not kill means indirectly as well. If we don't harm the animals but we eat them, then other people have to harm or kill them for us. So the vegan diet is included in the first principle. So, physically we keep the five peace universal principles, and then we're clean and pure, ready for God's Light again. Secondly, spiritual. This is a harder part, but it's not hard if we can find the Guide who helps us. Nowadays, it's not difficult: we have internet; we know which gurus teach what, which school teach what yoga, teach what meditation. There's no excuse to say that we don't know. We know everything, we just don't do it. That is the second part. Now we're ready, we're clean, the “temple” is swept and washed and mopped, everything clean; now we go and find the Guide to show us how to see the Light within again, the Light that's mentioned in the Bible, the Light which shines in darkness but darkness knows it not. Okay? `Know you not that the Light is within you.' “Know you not that the Kingdom of God is at hand.” You see that? Okay, now, we have to find that Guide, the Guide that knows, the friend or teacher, whatever you call him or her, a Guide, who has already been enlightened, who already sees the Light - I don't mean the flashlight here, the electrical light, I mean the Light inside you, the Light without any instrument. When you close your eyes, your whole body is flushed with Light, Light of more than a thousand suns. You are that. You are that Light. You are that God quality. And there's also the Music of the spheres. You can hear forever and it will soothe your troubles, heal your bodies, enlighten your souls, make you closer and closer to God. So, very simple: Physical, clean the “temple”; spiritual, find the Guide to show you how to reconnect with yourself. Because you are the great Self, you are the children of God. Everybody says, “You are the children of God.” “I'm the child of God.” But how, what? You have to prove it to yourselves that you are the children of God by contacting God, and if you cannot do it yourselves, just go find somebody who knows how. Mostly… I have to say that I think all the teachers teach these things free of charge, because it's your property, so nobody costs anything anyway. Suppose you forget your glasses in your pocket and I say, “Hey, your glasses are there, look in your pocket,” should I charge you for that? For the guidance that your glasses are in your pocket? No, no. Therefore all these teaching are free of charge, ever since time immemorial. So, Madam, that's it. Two things to do; physical, spiritual. There are many teachers, yes, who teach different ways, or just… anyone could find what he is looking for. When you're ready for spiritual guidance, you will find a teacher, or the Guide; we call it the “Guide” anyway, the inner Guide. Yes. The outer Guide will guide you to the inner Guide, and then you can talk to Jesus, talk to Buddha, to Prophet Mohammad, whomever you would like to contact, and contact direct to God. Why listen to anything? Why read the secondhand experience from anybody? Like, okay, `John sees the Light,' `John hears the trumpet.' You will see the Light. You will hear the trumpet. It's the same. You will see God like a bush of fire. Yes. You will hear God's voice like the Sound of many waters, like the Sound of trumpet, etc., etc. It's mentioned in all kinds of scriptures - Buddhist, Christian, the Granth Sahib, the Hindu scripture, etc., etc. Just have to find it, and verify it. Thank you. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Thank you. Commissioner Avila (m): Thank you very much for your comment. Mind, body, and spirit. Excellent. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, sir. That's right, sir. Commissioner Avila (m): Sherry and I derive great pleasure from the insight you have about people and the world we live in. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) Here is my next question. People in the United States are one of the most Hard working people in the world. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: True. True.) And yet our economy has been experiencing downturn in the last few years. So, is it true that the economy does not just depend on how much you work, but something else? If so, what is that? Supreme Master Ching Hai: It is true, sir, that the economy doesn't depend on how much we work and earn. It also depends on how much we spend or waste. Yes. Right now, you mentioned that Americans are (one of) the hardest working people in the world. I have to testify that it's true. When I was in America, as long as you have money, you can buy anything, 24 hours, seven. Not in every country like that. Some countries, they have siesta, and they close on the weekend, and they close at certain hours. America, no. No. Even in a small town, you can buy things in Home Depot, for example; if you need, desperately, things, always ready for you. Anytime, you can buy anything in America. So they truly are hard-working people. I had the impression that what you said is true, but the thing is, all this earning and tax paying goes where? Many places that it's leaking to, your hard-earned tax money. Subsidies. Subsidies for the meat industry - otherwise, the meat industry will go bankrupt, and the hamburger will not cost 99 cents but will cost at least 30 or 50 dollars apiece. That's the leaking “1”. And the US is spending too much money on military operations, in the far lands, as I told you before. I am sorry. I am very sorry, but I have to tell you the truth because you asked me, and I so much love America because they honor me so many times: at least 10 states of America gave me honorary citizenship and the key to the cities and states and all that. I am forever honored by and grateful for the American government's recognition and many of your presidents, at least five, six presidents, have written congratulations notes to me and given me awards, certificates, Presidential Award, things like that. I am not trying to make you feel bad, I'm just trying to repay your kindness, by telling the truth. You see? Because the policy needs to be turned around. As President Obama has stated recently, we should not use money For war in foreign land anymore but to use the money for the benefit of the people at home and the needy instead. I'm glad he has said that. I'm glad he has realized that, because that's where the money is running to, and fast-paced. Because, besides the irreplaceable cost to human lives, war puts a great financial burden on the nation. Every day, as you know it yourself - I'm saying this for the sake of others who don't know - every day, the US has been spending at least, at least US$720 million for the war in Iraq alone. One day, in one country alone, US$720 million. It is also estimated that the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan will cost the US at least US$3.7 trillion in another 10 years of long-term payments and interest. So, even if your citizens, the Americans, are working 24 hours, seven, even if you are the richest country in the world, no matter how large your budget, it will run out. Would you agree with me? Commissioner Avila (m): Yes. I agree with you. Yes. Supreme Master Ching Hai: The poor American citizens, they cannot put up with all this. They cannot catch up, no matter how much they're willing, no matter how deep they reach into their pockets, they have nothing in there anymore to reach to. So, it's not the American citizens, it's the policy that has to change. We should not do it as habit as a proud nation always going to war and “beat the…” whatever - you know that - out of everybody else. The way we're doing like this, it gets bigger and bigger, more and more resistance, and more Americans die also in foreign lands in the prime of their lives. Look at all of them. Look at all the soldiers. You saw them on TV, how beautiful they are: the best of Americans; the best-looking guys. Any girl in the world would like to marry one of those soldiers. They're so good-looking, aren't they? Beautiful. So beautiful! So pure. Their faces are so pure, and so intelligent. We cannot afford to even waste this kind of human resource. If the Americans, all young and beautiful, and intelligent and handsome like that, go out and are dying all the time like this, what will you have left in the future? Because able young men have all gone out, got killed. Either that, or you kill other countries' youth and beautiful and able people. Either way it's not correct. You see, plus, we have to spend extra on the aftereffects of the war, such as to care for the veterans, for another… many years. And you can't… Sometimes the budget is not even allowed to care for the veterans. Many veterans became even homeless. (Yes.) It's not fair that they sacrificed their youth, their prime time for the country and then come home to become a homeless beggar. This is not the dignity for Americans. Please think again, what we can do with all that money. And of course, some of the most painful costs of war are not able to be paid financially but emotionally, psychologically, environmentally and spiritually. So the economy and the sense of accomplishment, for the hardworking people of America, would benefit greatly from the monies being spent on good causes, like President Obama mentioned. (Commissioner Avila (m): Yes.) We should spend this money on the things that help improve everyone's quality of life. Trillions of dollars, my God! The Americans don't need to work anymore if… Just sit there and the government takes care, if we have all this money, yes. If we don't spend in war, then Americans can sit pretty, yes. And with all that money saved and all the hardworking Americans, your country will be so powerful that even you don't have to go to any war. But you weaken your own power, economically, manpowerly, and karmically, okay? This I cannot prove, but I can only tell you logically that if we spend all the money, then we have to go begging elsewhere; and where goes the dignity of the great nation like America? First, charity begins at home. We have to take care of our home, we have to have a stable foundation before we even take care of the world. We could provide in abundance for children's education, parents' healthcare, the things that help improve everybody's quality of life, you know: early retirements, more hobbies, more happiness, upliftment of the disadvantaged neighbors, and investing in green technology or organic farming; in short, prosperity for everyone to enjoy their God-given lives on Earth. Thank you for your thought-inspiring question, Commissioner Avila. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I just have to tell the truth. Commissioner Avila (m): And thank you for your thought-provoking answer. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I hope it helps, sir. Commissioner Avila (m): And, you know, I agree that if we spend that money on organic farming,(Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, yes, organic farming. Yes.), that would help us and the world also. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, and people will be healthy, (Commissioner Avila (m): Yes.) and the planet will be saved. Because organic farming also absorbs 40% CO2 in the air also. Commissioner Avila (m): Yes, that's true. You know, when we treat wastewater, at the end it comes out in what we call “bio-solids” and liquid. Well the bio-solid is fertilizer, and when we give it to the farmers to grow their crops, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) they have greater yield per acre using our treated waste. Our human waste is treated as you mentioned; the animal waste is not treated. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, understand, yes. Commissioner Avila (m): And that's what causing the problem as you mentioned, down in the Gulf of Mexico. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) We have that dead zone down there. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, yes. I'm glad you are doing something. It's helping your community; and then other counties, other cities could learn from your method or your examples. Thank you. Yes. Commissioner Avila (m): Now Sherry will ask the next question. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, ma'am. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): When I was a Girl Scout leader, part of the program was a cross-religious, cross-cultural invitation, that we would get to know somebody from another culture, from another religion, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Right.) and I was very fortunate, because I knew Amber. Amber was Muslim, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Oh.) and Amber invited us to her home, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) and all my Girl Scouts came to her home, and she helped them to understand the Muslim religion, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) and… She helped us. She also had a baby at the time. She fed my Girl Scouts, and she was very generous and kind to them, and that brings me to my next question, Supreme Master Ching Hai. The freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: That's right.) Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): In the past few centuries, many faiths have flourished in this country, thanks to that Bill of Rights. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) However, after the tragedy of 9/11, there has been a tendency of discrimination against Islamic citizens. Also, there has been an increase in the number of Islamic schools so that the Muslim children would be treated with respect and dignity in their own schools, because they weren't being treated with respect and dignity in the public schools. What can people do to stop prejudice, and to promote love and peace among all people, regardless of religious background? Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, yes Mrs. Avila. It's not only in the United States, but there is kind of a wave of “counter-Muslim” in the world, including in the European Union. Hence, you see many new laws come in, you know, like the law that discourages or forbids Muslim ladies to wear a full gown to cover the face, for example? It had not been like that before - just recently. It's because, I think, the government is also afraid that any extremists could disguise themselves in the garb of this full-veiled woman Muslim, and do some harm to the public. That's another thing. And one more thing is they want them to integrate into the country where they stay, to be like everyone else, you know? Like, “we like to know each other, we like to see what each other look like.” I also, not for religion, but I would have loved to have seen the lovely woman behind the veil also, because I've seen some of them. When I was still married with my husband, some Muslim ladies came to have treatment from him, and when they unveiled the veil, they were very beautiful inside, very beautiful. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Very beautiful eyes. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes, beautiful eyes, yes, and flashing their eyelashes, you know? Very, very attractive. God creates us so beautifully. I would have liked to see them, you know? - man, woman without covering, yes. In the West, people are also afraid that if you cover yourselves, that means you have something to hide. That's why they're afraid, and especially after 9/11. You know, it affects not only America but affects the world as well. So, you see, I share the same wish with you. And we all have to exercise - help each other - tolerance and understanding for the different stages of development in various nations. We should try to reflect on the common ground that we all have, that we all share; that is love, universal love, and love for the family. We all have, whether Muslim or Christian or Buddhist, love for our favorite family members, our pets, our friends, our teachers, our countries. We all have this kind of love, Muslim or not. We all have all this common ground that we all share. We all have the innate nature within us to “love thy neighbor” and to help them when they are in need. So, we just have to be loving, friendly, and let each one be, let each one be in peace. Saying that, however, I would like very much also to see the people of Islamic faith really go all the way to take responsibility for world peace, to take any opportunity to have respect, to integrate into the societies where they live, and to prove their worth; the more they hide in their own community, the more people will not understand them. You see, just like when you were in the Girl Scouts time, the Muslim lady invited the children to her home, and therefore the children understood what Islam is all about. They see the kindness with the Muslim people. You see that? The example speaks louder than words. So they, the Muslim people, also should open their hearts and minds and houses as well, to accept others, no matter how different in looks, religious beliefs, and traditions. If the Muslim people are in America, they should try to integrate to become like Americans. I don't mean eat the same or have to go to the same church or anything, but outwardly at least look like the neighbors -yes? - so that there is no maybe suspicions, or a little hesitance between the neighbors, yes? If the Americans have a Muslim next door, maybe he or she would like to make friends with the neighbors, but if she comes out always veiled like this or keeps to herself all the time, then the American people, they very much respect privacy, they will not always come and make an initiative to get to know them, thus also know the Muslim faith. You see? So, in Âu Lạc, Vietnam, there's a saying, “When you enter a river, be mindful of where you're going,” because there are currents difference, and the shallowness and deepness are different in different places of the river. So, be mindful of the currents and the place that you're entering. And “When you enter a home, be mindful of the house rules,” so that you'll be in harmony with your environment, with the people that you meet. It has to be mutual respect and consideration in order to build lasting friendship and peace. And, above all, everyone, be they Muslim or other faith followers, must discourage and boycott any germination or exercise of violence, because it destabilizes the friendship of nations and destroys peace in the world, including where they live. As God's nature is love and forgiveness and peace, and we are God's children, we should do the same. Thank you, ma chérie (my darling). Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Thank you, Supreme Master. Thank you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I also agree that religious and spiritual leaders should work together and let people know that it's time to change, that the planet is in urgent danger now, and we must be more loving in our actions, whatever religion we belong to. And be vegan to save it, whatever religion we belong to, or non-religion we belong to.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – World Vegan, World Peace:A Conscious Choice - P6/10 Chicago, Illinois, USA August 11, 2011. Episode: 1815, Air Date: 3 September 2011. Commissioner Avila (m): And Supreme Master Ching Hai, our next question is by my colleague, Commissioner Horton. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,colleague! Commissioner Horton (f): That was an amazing answer. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Oh,really? Commissioner Horton (f): Thank you, Supreme Master. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I'm glad that it helps. Commissioner Horton (f): Yes. We can do better about respecting all faiths, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) and we will. Supreme Master Ching Hai: It has to be mutual, you know,mutual. (Commissioner Horton (f): That's right.) Yes. Commissioner Horton (f): That's right. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) Thank you. I have a question about health. We see that government leadership has recognized that the overwhelming decline of health and obesity stem from the diet of our youth. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) US First Lady Michelle Obama working with the United States Department of Agriculture introduced 『My Plate,』 which replaces the old food pyramid. In 『My Plate,』 the image of a plate is divided into basic food groups: (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes.) Fruit,vegetables, grains and protein, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Great.) which is a smaller circle, with a smaller circle on the side for dairy products. This seems to be a start. Can you comment on how government can have a greater leadership role in influencing people to eat healthier? Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,thank you, Commissioner Horton. The government is in the best leadership role to help people eat healthier, which,to many doctors and experts, means eating vegan food. As we mentioned earlier, the government must work with the media to direct people toward good information sources. The US government's 『My Plate』 campaign that you mentioned,which was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama, is an improvement from the standard diet of the past because it emphasizes more plant-based eating than ever before. It is to be applauded and strengthened. I very much admire her. For example, it indicates that about three-fourths of your plate should be vegan, one-half fruits and vegetables,and another one-fourth grains. Commissioner Horton (f): Right. Supreme Master Ching Hai: But the best,of course, would be that governments recommend the recipes for compassion as well as health- you know,moral, virtues,compassion, God-like quality. Health is just a by product of a compassionate lifestyle. Now,we don't always have to eat vegetables- it looks all green and yellow like that - no. Nowadays we have vegan sausage, it's delicious; vegan steaks,vegan pork, vegan chicken, vegan eggs,vegan whatever you want, and it's delicious, delicious,delicious. Yes. And everyone would enjoy it. If they have all that, they would never bother to go to meat again because it tastes even better than meat, (Commissioner Horton (f): That's true.) and you become healthy almost immediately. (Commissioner Horton (f): Yes.) After one week, you feel a big difference: not heavy like before; you feel lighter, more easy to think, more easy to concentrate, less sleepy, more efficient at work. Now,in the animal-free organic vegan diet, we will find everything we need,100%. Hundred percent for health, for moral standard, for blessing, yes,for blessing, because that is the diet that goes with Heaven, Heaven's standard, so Heaven will bless us no end. Animals also will bless us to no end, and Mother Earth will bless us to no end, because we go with the flow. If we go with Heaven's standard, we will meet Heaven, and we will see Heaven at the end,and even now, in this world already. To help people eat healthier, governments can simply provide facts since there is a lot of scientific research already available that highlights the hazards of meat and dairy consumption. The government must also be courageous enough to help reverse outdated myths about the meat and dairy industries, abolish all this wrong information and bad lobby. Yes. Thank you. Thank you. Such as the one saying protein and calcium must be obtained from these animal-based sources. That is wrong. For example, there are studies clearly showing that consuming cow's milk, rather than reducing, would increase the risk of osteoporosis; and today's research informs us that plant-based foods provide the perfect amount of balanced protein for human needs,naturally, without the side effects, like cholesterol or sickness or bacteria stuff. Instead of subsidizing the meat and dairy industries, the government should pass along the real cost of producing meat, which would help people think twice about their purchases. If the government subsidizes not the meat industry anymore, then the meat price will go sky high, and if the government subsidizes organic farming, then all the healthy fruit and vegetables will be,like,almost free for the people. So,they can compare the price; they buy what's healthy for them and it tastes good as well. If the environmental clean-up needed for all the pollution from livestock's waste is factored in as well, then the economic cost alone would be too high. All the tax money is also leaking there as well. Ultimately, Madam Horton,your government policies must promote and subsidize organic vegan farming and stop subsidies for animal industry,you see. Subsidize life and health, not disease and death. Subsidize organic vegan diet means life, life and health. Organic farming, life and health. Subsidize life and health. And ideally,Madam, governments should ban all animal products, just like they ban tobacco and smoking,yes!The people rely on the government to lead them. That's why we call them leaders. Yes? And if the leaders spoke, people will listen. That's why you are leaders. Leaders must lead correctly and righteously. If you know what is right for people, you are the leaders, you lead. You tell them. In Âu Lạc (Vietnam) or China,we even call the government or the government leaders 『parents of the people.』 As parents, you have the right to ban whatever not good for your children, just like at home, you ban violent video, sex video for your children. You have the right to do that,and people will thank you for it. So,why don't we strive to ban all harmful poisonous lethal products? Alcohol,cigarette,drugs, including meat and other animal products. All the information about vegan benefits and animal products' harmful effects should be posted everywhere: on billboards, on government's internet website, make a billboard outside, advertisement-size, everywhere,on website, in all possible media and possible corners of the world, and obligatory posting in all markets, food stores etc.,etc. We have to do something, not just wishy-washy. As parents of the whole nation, the government is responsible for the health of their subjects,like parents to the children. As an official yourself, Madam,I thank you, and commend you for always thinking of the best interests of the people. You are the real example of a mother of the nation. Michelle Obama is a real example of 『mother of the nation.』 We call them 『mother of the nation』 in Âu Lạc (Vietnam) or China, 『mẫu nghi thiên hạ,』 meaning the mother under Heaven. That great title is bestowed upon the Queen of a nation, or the First Lady of the nation. It's the same; she's the 『Queen』 of America right now. You see,the government, we call them parents of the citizens. Now, you are taking people's best interests at heart, whether in making a new policy or maintaining an efficient budget, and I wish that the leaders in charge of food and health will likewise make righteous policies and use of the tax dollars wisely,for the benefit of the people. Now, in your work assisting the disempowered people, you have proved that with a little help, even the most helpless can become self-sufficient and develop themselves; and you,one person, make such a big difference for thousands of people. Imagine if the other leaders, the whole nation's leaders are doing something with the real people's interest at heart, and not care about their supporting… finance money for the next election or whatever. I am sorry to be so blunt. Now,similarly, with just a little jumpstart from the government, people will be empowered to lead longer, healthier lifestyles, and morally fit lifestyles. I don't think any nation would dare to eye your country, if your whole country's people are healthy,virtuous, morally fit,and know what's right from wrong, thanks to the leaders of the government, the leading role of the government,you see? Leaders have to lead and have to lead righteously. In China or Vietnam, we call the king,you know, now president,yes? - we don't have many kings anymore, so the president is like king - we call them 『son of Heaven.』 『Tian zi,』 『thiên tử』- means son of Heaven, means you represent the Father in Heaven to take care of your subjects, to take care of God's children on Earth. So,we call them son of Heaven,yes. They liken the king or the president of the country,as the Son of Heaven. So,the son of Heaven has to rule, excuse me,『must.』 I wouldn't say 『should』 or 『please,』 I say,『has to』 rule as the son of Heaven, as the best leader for the people,always with people's interest at heart, no matter what it costs - and it won't cost much: it won't cost as much as war; it won't cost as much as conflict within the countries. Yes. And in the long run, it will save a lot of money because the health benefit will be no longer necessary, the people will be more educated, and behave and be grateful to the government. Then you don't need to have army even. People will just love you. But,you see, I also thank the US First Lady and government profoundly. for the veg diet promotion. They're doing their best. I mean, they are the first,even. The first government, first leaders of the nation ever do this openly, so actively. (Commissioner Horton (f): That's right.) Yes? And the US government is the first government to openly support and declare it. I salute their courage and wisdom and goodwill. Nevertheless, more should be done. Stronger measures should be implemented. Thank you. Commissioner Horton (f): Thank you, Supreme Master Ching Hai. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes. Even lawmakers, you know, should consider passing a vegan diet bill as soon as possible,to save lives and the planet, and save your financial crisis. Commissioner Horton (f): That's right. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Be Veg, Go Green, Do Good. That's all I ask. Three things. Be Veg, Go Green, Do Good. Do I ask too much? No. Commissioner Horton (f): I love you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I love you too, Commissioner Horton. And I ask that, for your own good even. Be Veg, Go Green, Do Good. That's all we have to do. And okay, if you become enlightened, good for you. If you don't,that's enough for Heaven already; Heaven will bless you forever. Commissioner Horton (f): But we must do right for the planet. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I don't mean you, I mean the planet people. Yes,we must,we must, Madam. We must. There's no other choice. There are only two ways to do things: the correct way and the incorrect way. There are only two ways. Simple. I am a simple person. Okay. Thank you. Any more questions? Commissioner Avila (m): Yes. Our last question. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,I got all excited and passionate about these things. Commissioner Avila (m): You just finished talking about the government. (Yes.) Now, I have this last question. (Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes,sir.) You know, it's really simple. The Supreme Master, the organic diet is the answer! Our planet and fellow beings will be benefit so much from it if we all change right now to a more compassionate and loving diet, (Supreme Master Ching Hai: That's right,sir.) the plant-based vegan diet. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Right,sir. Commissioner Avila (m): Supreme Master Ching Hai, the last question of the interview session: Religion shapes the hopes,dreams, morals and values of an estimated 85% of the world's population. How can we promote partnerships between religious groups by putting aside ideological differences and combining their voices to create the greatest influence on political leaders for them to address environmental issues? Supreme Master Ching Hai, can you help bring the leaders of all major religions together for this purpose, for the good of the planet? Supreme Master Ching Hai: How am I going to do that? Commissioner Avila (m): I've been trying to think for a long time and I just don't know how. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Good question,sir. I don't know,sir. You are very,very kind. I'm only passionate about the humans' lives and the value of our planet and the people, but I'm not sure if, I could do what you ask. I'm only doing what I can,yes? But this is a good question,sir. Yes, I try my best all the time, and I know you do your best as well,such as, through your work, you have organized an interfaith discussion last year,about the role that different religions can play to promote environmental stewardship. You see,you have more power than I do, secular power. I'm just a meditation teacher. This care for the Earth and our fellow inhabitants can be expressed in terms of the Golden Rules that we mentioned earlier, the five principles of peace, universal principles, that are logical, harmonious principles for everybody. It doesn't have to be religious. Everyone,be they Buddhist, Muslim or even atheist, if they follow the five Golden Rules, universal peace principles, then life would be paradise on Earth. Now,the first principle of Ahimsa,meaning non-violence, which is to avoid harm to any other beings, be they human and animal. So now,we try to remind everyone, regardless of their faith, to return to this timeless ideal. That is why I have called upon the world's spiritual and religious people to meditate and pray together for World Vegan,World Peace. If we have world vegan, then we will have world peace as well, as outcome. When we don't kill animals anymore,then we don't kill each other. Thank you. Now I'm glad to see, that it was helping. You see,in our television, they call it Supreme Master Television, I have tried to arrange that all the religious scriptures' main points are aired together - Commissioner Avila (m): (Yes.) then you can see that, (Commissioner Avila (m): (Yes.) and that's the best I can do- so people can see that it's ridiculous to fight with each other. My religion, your religion say the same thing. Commissioner Avila (m): Yes. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Yes. So,if anyone, after reading all this common ground of different religious orders still want to fight, in the name of Muslim, or in the name of Christian, I think they just want to benefit themselves. There's no excuse to do that anymore,yes? Commissioner Avila (m): Yes. Supreme Master Ching Hai: I also agree that religious and spiritual leaders should work together and let people know that it's time to change, that the planet is in urgent danger now, and we must be more loving in our actions, whatever religion we belong to; and be vegan to save it, whatever religion we belong to, or non-religion we belong to. There are quite a few other leaders,like,His Holiness the Pope, (who) also tried to gather some different faiths, Muslim people to come to him,discussing things, and I'm glad that it has worked out in some areas,yes? But all religions belong to God. We all say we worship God. Then why fight,for God? This is ridiculous,really. We have to grow up, that's it. We have to grow up as adults and talk together, instead of using bullets. Everybody can do that. What heroic action in that? Go out and blow people up in the market,everybody blown into pieces, including children and harmless women - what heroic action I can see in that? I don't see it. I'm sorry,I don't see any hero in these kinds of actions,for example. I don't see anybody heroic in pulling the trigger and terminating another person's life. He's not born to die like that. Whenever God wants him to die,he dies, but it's not by such a violent means like that. So,religious and spiritual leaders should recognize that this is not a request for them to compromise their ideology or to glorify the other faith,but it is because the principles of being loving and kind are really central to every religion. Don't you think? Commissioner Avila (m): Oh yes. Yes. Mrs. Sherry Avila (f): Oh,Yes,yes. Supreme Master Ching Hai: Then why do we act contrary? (Commissioner Horton (f): Yes.) Yes. There's another thing. You see,also, the religious leaders must personally change, Commissioner Avila (m): (Yes,I agree.) be our compassionate vegan role models and thereby demonstrate the most powerful way to love all and protect all on this planet. Thank you, Commissioner Avila. Supreme Master Ching Hai: And thank you,all of you. Thank you,all of you,for your supportive applause. I feel I have friends sitting there. Thank you so much. Commissioner Avila (m): Thank you very much for all your answers to our questions. Supreme Master Ching Hai: You're welcome,sir. Commissioner Avila (m): Supreme Master Ching Hai, it has been an amazing experience to meet and converse with you. It's quite a privilege for Patricia,Sherry, and myself to have been given the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas with you. Supreme Master Ching Hai: The privilege is mine,sir; the honor is all mine. I'm so grateful that you honor me this way. Thank you so much. I have tried my best. Since I knew of your invitation, I have been thinking, day and night until now, to think of the answers that would really benefit you and your people. I'm not just trying to talk or convert you or people into my way of life or anything. I was sincerely,honestly, genuinely concerned that any word I have spoken, through the grace of Heaven, should benefit people, your people or any people who are listening. I was really deep into prayer and meditation, to try,so that the words will sincerely make an impact in the souls of the world's people and your country.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – HEALTHY LIVING George Eisman: Growth Hormones in Animal Products Equals Cancer. Episode: 1873, Air Date: 31 October 2011. Halo, thoughtful viewers, and welcome to Healthy Living. On this week’s program George Eisman, a highly respected vegan registered dietitian in the United States, will explain how consuming animal products causes cancer as well as how the animal agriculture industry destroys public health. Our diet benefits from lowering our animal products. Every serving we get out, we lower our cancer risk by 20 to 30%, right down to no animal products at all. Mr. Eisman served as a faculty member in dietetics and nutrition at several universities and colleges and has worked in a children's hospital and a nursing home, as well as for public health agencies in four states. He founded The Association of Vegetarian Dietitians and Nutrition Educators, is the co-founder and first Chairman-Elect of the Vegetarian Nutrition Practice Group of the American Dietetic Association, is the director of the Coalition for Cancer Prevention Through Plant-Based Eating and is also an Advisory Board Member of EarthSave International. Mr. Eisman is the author of two books, “The Most Noble Diet” and “A Basic Course in Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition.” I've been vegetarian for over 40 years now. And I've been vegan for about 28 years. And my life's work is trying to make people aware of the connection between what they eat and their risk of diseases like cancer. And a vegan diet is by far the best way to lower your cancer risk. There was a study done in Japan a few years ago that found when people in rural areas went from eating animal products just once a week to three times a week, the breast cancer rate went up by 70%. If you can find a drug that would lower people’s breast cancer rate by 70%, you could make a billion dollars. So all you have to do is get them to cut animal products out of their diet and it goes down by that much. There were an estimated 12.7 million cancer cases diagnosed around the world in 2008, and this number is expected to rise to 21 million by 2030. Cancer is a term used for more than 100 diseases and is characterized by out-of-control cell reproduction. To be healthy, the body needs a constant supply of new cells and their regulation is an orderly path of growth, division, and death. When this process is damaged, some cells do not end their lives as a normal part of the cell life cycle. These irregular ones grow uncontrollably and divide, forming a mass of abnormal cells. The complex mechanism of cell regulation is tightly controlled by growth hormones. The best thing about a vegan diet, from a standpoint of cancer risk is that a vegan diet contains no growth hormones. Growth hormones are proteins that promote growth. And cancer is a disease of abnormal growth. So to put growth hormones in your body, when you’re trying to fight cancer or prevent cancer, is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. It's just going to make it worse, because it's going to promote growth. And growth hormones are animal products, because all the animals that are slaughtered for us are killed when they're still fairly young, so they're still growing. And of course, dairy products are meant to grow a baby calf into a thousand pound cow in a year, so they’re full of growth hormones. And eggs are full of growth hormones. So in order to get these growth hormones out of our diet, we have to go to a plant-based diet, and use plant-based milks and egg-substitutes made from plant foods, and of course, things like veggie burgers and tofu and other plant products in place of meat and other animal products. Organic meats and grass-fed, non-hormone enhanced meats, still are full of growth hormones, because of the age of the animals. We don't let them get old before we slaughter them, we eat them when they're still young. So these growth hormones are in their bodies, whether they’re enhanced, injected with them, or they're just naturally there. Those growth hormones are in our animal products that we consume. These growth hormones are proteins; they're not fats. So if you eat low-fat meat and low-fat dairy products, it’s actually worse because they have more protein than they do fats, so they have more growth hormone. Mr. Eisman learned about how dietary growth hormones cause cancer from the work of Professor Jane Plant, a cancer victim herself whose tumor went into remission shortly after she adopted a vegan diet. I came across this book in 1999 called “The No Dairy Breast Cancer Prevention Program” by a woman named Jane Plant, who was one of the top scientists in England. And this book opened up my eyes to the link between cancer and dairy products, and as well as all other animal products. So dairy products are the one food that people think is healthy for them, and it really isn’t. It’s just as unhealthy as meat and chicken and eggs, because it has these growth hormones that encourage abnormal growth. And that’s why she features this. And that’s inspired me as a dietitian, because we dietitians are also brainwashed into thinking that dairy products are necessary foods. And they’re not only not necessary, but they are not even healthful. And they actually shorten our lives by raising our risk of this deadly disease of cancer. Let me tell you the story of Jane Plant herself. Jane Plant was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987. And after five operations, which she lost all of one breast and part of the other breast, she was told she had at most six months to live. Her breast cancer had spread to her neck. She traveled around the world to countries where breast cancer was not a common disease, and compared it to countries where breast cancer was a common disease. And she said this pattern was very clear to her that the more dairy products, and actually other animal products as well in a diet, the higher the country’s rate of breast cancer. And so she gave up eating all animal products. And within a few weeks, the tumor on her neck started to itch, and it started to shrink. And when she went back to her doctor six months later, instead of being dead, she was cancer-free. And 15 years later she's still writing books. Why is it that not enough nutritionists and medical doctors know about this? Well, first of all medical doctors are doctors of medicine. They’re not doctors of health, they’re not doctors of nutrition, they’re not doctors of food. They are doctors of medicine. My brother is a medical doctor, and he says, We never learn anything about food. I learn about what each vitamin might do in your body, but I don't learn about what foods they’re in. If someone, wants to get that vitamin, I prescribe a pill. And if you think about it, if people are healthy from what they eat, there's not a lot of sickness and there is not a lot of business for the hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry. It's not the doctors themselves, but the doctors are pushed by the pharmaceutical industry and the healthcare industry to treat disease and not to prevent disease. Dietitians are not trained to prescribe diets. They're trained to teach people how to follow diets that are prescribed by doctors. But the ideal diet is not something that is really pushed, because it's not economically beneficial for anybody except the individual. With much of the medical community not informed as to the innumerable benefits of a plant-based diet, it is no wonder the misconception exists that this diet lacks sufficient protein. However nothing could be further from the truth. Most people think you need to have a lot of protein in your diet, and you really don’t need to have very much. Just a couple of ounces of a day is all you need. And it’s easily gotten from plant foods. And you don’t have to even eat things like soybeans, which are very high in protein. You can eat other beans, things like kidney beans, garbanzo beans, black beans, but also vegetables and grains and nuts and seeds. They all have adequate amounts of protein to meet our needs. In the US, one can purchase a hamburger at a fast-food outlet for 99 cents. A study by the Center for Science and Environment estimated that the true cost of a hamburger in the US, including government subsidies to the livestock industry, the harm to public health from consuming beef and environmental damage caused by producing it is US$200. What we really should stop doing is stop subsidizing the meat and dairy industry. We have these farm bills that pass every year, and meat and dairy get most of the money, that's our tax money subsidizing those foods. They're the unhealthiest foods. And those are the foods that should be the most expensive. Instead they're the cheapest because of the subsidies. Every farm animal is bred intentionally so if we stop consuming them, we can stop breeding them tomorrow and there won’t be millions of them to be producing all these pollutants that are destroying the atmosphere and polluting the water, as well as creating all this unhealthy food. We can stop the breeding of farm animals tomorrow. On top of all the wonderful things that a vegan lifestyle brings to us in terms of health and well-being, it has many other beneficial effects as well. But if we really care about our health and the health of the environment and the health of other people, and the health of the animals that we're trying to spare unnecessary suffering, then a whole foods plant-based diet is a win-win-win situation for everybody concerned. We don't get hurt, the animals don't get hurt, the beautiful dog on your lap, and the cows, and the pigs, and the chickens, and the sheep, they have the same feelings that that dog does. And if somebody were to snatch that dog off your lap and try to eat it, people would be so upset. And yet we do that everyday with these other animals who have the same feeling of wanting to survive, of wanting to not be harmed. Our sincere gratitude, George Eisman, for providing such essential information about the plant strong diet that ensures cancer-free, fulfilling lives. May you always enjoy utmost success on your noble path.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – PLANET EARTH:OUR LOVING HOME Understanding Planetary Climate Systems: An Interview with Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Donald J. Wuebbles. Episode: 1882, Air Date: 9 November 2011. Astute viewers, welcome to Planet Earth: Our Loving Home on Supreme Master Television. This week we’ll find out about the hugely damaging environmental impact of climate change with Dr. Donald J. Wuebbles, Harry E. Preble Endowed Professor in the Departments of Atmospheric Sciences and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. Dr. Wuebbles has a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of California – Davis, USA and has authored over 400 scientific articles, most of which concern our planet’s atmospheric composition and its effects on the global climate system. He is noted as the first scientist to statistically prove that stratospheric ozone was depleting in the early 1980’s and was honored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 2005 with the Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award for his overall work in this area. Dr. Wuebbles was a lead author on the first and second assessment reports by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and shares in the 2007 Nobel Prize for his work with the Panel. We know that the climate is changing, that it’s not just the Earth is warming; it’s many other aspects that are going on; precipitation patterns are changing and other aspects and we have clear evidence that the basis for those changes is because of human activities and particularly the emissions of carbon dioxide and some other gases and particles that are in the atmosphere that are causing a forcing on the climate system that is driving that change. One serious outcome of rising global temperatures is an increase in the frequency and strength of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods and droughts. Well, this year (2011), actually, was the worst year on record for natural disasters in the U.S. – over US$35-billion of damages. Some of that was due to hurricanes and earthquakes and things like that. But a good part of it was because of major storms that occurred, causing flooding; for example, the Midwest and the South, near the Mississippi and other, associated rivers, wildfires occurring in the Southwest related to large temperatures that were occurring and a number of other such things. What we’re thinking is, unfortunately, that kind of uncommon event is likely to become more common in the future as we look at the changing climate. We really expect increases in the severe weather as a result of climate change and that’s what we’re seeing. Every part of the US has seen an increase over the last 50 years. In the Midwest, that’s been over a 30% increase in the top 1% of storms, so more precipitation is coming. Well, that means more flooding; in particular, it’s tending to come that way in the winter and spring, so more flooding. And what we’re seeing also in areas that aren’t getting those increases overall in precipitation like we’re seeing in the Midwest, if we go to the Southwest, for example, when they do get rain, it still tends to come as larger events than it used to, but they’re not getting as much rain as they were before. And so that’s why in Texas (USA) this year we had a really major problem with a really major drought. The public typically associates climate change with unnaturally hot weather, but it can also lead to very harsh, abnormally cold weather in certain regions as well. The substantial warming occurring in the Arctic is materially changing the weather patterns in other parts of the world. So we expect more warming in higher latitudes because of several important feedback processes that occur in the climate system. One is called the Ice-Albedo Feedback. What that means is as the ice in the Arctic melts you have less ice on land or less ice in the ocean. The background, what was covered with ice has less reflectivity. And that causes more absorption of sunlight and you get warmer temperatures. So what does that do? Because the temperature gradient between the Arctic and mid-latitudes is decreasing, the jet stream becomes weaker. And the net result is that large what we call “extra-tropical storms” are moving further northward. And that’s tending to leave places like Texas (USA) and the Southwest and Southeast drier and so more likely to have a drought than before. But it’s also part of the reason why we’re seeing this increased precipitation in our area (the Midwest). At the same time, the other key factor there is that you can get more Arctic air coming down to mid-latitudes. And so in the winter, you can actually end up with colder temperatures for short periods compared to what you would have had previously. So you can end up with a large snowstorm that can drop 36 inches of snow in Washington DC (USA) and actually have that relate very strongly to our changing climate. Shifts away from normal weather patterns also have detrimental effects on human and animal health; one reason for this is that certain diseases that rely on vectors or hosts spread as suitable environments for the hosts enlarge. For example, malaria, which is transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito, is mainly confined to tropical areas, but as the world warms, more regions will provide suitable conditions for the mosquito to thrive, thus causing marked increases in malarial infections. The Wildlife Conservation Society has identified 12 diseases that are likely to spread to other areas due to climate change, including bird flu, cholera, plague, Ebola, tuberculosis, Lyme disease and babesiosis. However, increased incidence of disease is not the only climate-change-induced factor that will significantly affect human health. Water and food shortages and more dust storms will also have a tremendously negative impact on our longevity and quality of life. One of the things that I have a particular concern about is pollens. I have allergies; many, many Americans have allergies to pollen. And as the climate is warming, as the weather patterns are changing, we’re tending to get more weeds. More weeds means more pollen, and so more concerns about those kinds of allergies than we had before. In addition, as the climate changes, we expect more issues with air quality. The same amount of emissions that lead to concerns about ozone are actually exacerbated or made worse by warmer temperatures. We expect that as the temperature’s warming, we’re more likely to have pathogens and insects and things that can cause major, major health problems all come into a region that maybe you didn’t see before. So there’s a wide range of possible impacts on human health as a result of the change in climate. The economic cost of a hotter planet is also predicted to be extremely large; a 2005 study by Claudia Kemfert of the German Institute for Economic Research estimated that climate change will cost up to US$20 trillion by 2100. However, another figure calculated by British scientists for the European Commission's Directorate General for the Environment put the sum at US$73 trillion by 2200. A report for the British Government by the World Bank’s former chief economist and past advisor to the UK government Lord Nicholas Stern states that inaction on climate change will substantially reduce the world’s economic output by the end of the current century. There have been a number of statements put out that the cost of inaction is far greater than the cost of action. And it is much better to do something now than wait because of the extreme expense. One analysis by a number of top economists was led by Lord Stern from the UK. And in that analysis, they said that we may have as much as a 20% decrease in the gross domestic product worldwide by the end of the century if climate change continues to occur at the rate it is, if we don’t do anything about the burning of fossil fuels, etc. So that would be a dramatic impact on the economics, affecting everyone on Earth. Another report by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, entitled “Climate Benefits of Changing Diet,” states that a planetary shift to a completely plant-based diet would result in an 80% reduction in the costs of mitigating global warming by 2050, because producing animal products is extremely intensive in terms of energy use and emits very harmful greenhouse-gases. Many of these gases such as methane and nitrous oxide generated in the process of raising factory-farmed animals have global warming potentials far larger than that of carbon dioxide. For example, over a 20-year period, methane is 72-times more potent than carbon dioxide at warming the Earth and if aerosol interactions are considered, the gas is actually 100 times more potent; however it is shorter-lived compared to carbon dioxide. Methane stores in the atmosphere for 10 years, which means that after you emit a certain amount of methane, 10 years later you can expect a little over 60% of that, maybe almost two-thirds of that gas has been removed from the atmosphere through reaction. And then the rest stays there for another 10-year period. And you reduce another 60-plus percent of that and then, nitrous oxide's even longer. It's like a hundred years. (CO2 has an initial lifetime of a hundred years. But then after that, it depends on the rate of the CO2 being removed into the deep ocean. So the second lifetime, second e-folding rate, we call it, would be maybe more like a thousand years. So, CO2, once we emit it, stays around for a long, long time. No question about the importance of methane and nitrous oxide and some other gases in terms of their effects on climate and are very much a concern. What do think about the government shifting subsidies away from livestock and toward organic vegan farming as an effective and even money-saving policy to help reduce global warming? I think anything we can do towards promoting going vegetarian and vegan would be really good. As a scientist, I don’t tend to talk about policy and say well we should be doing specific things with policy. But certainly, I think the science tells us that we could help with these concerns about sustainability and climate concerns by reducing our use of meat and animal products, so we should be looking at ways we could do that effectively. Thank you Dr. Donald J. Wuebbles for taking time from your busy schedule to talk about the effects of climate change on our world and for your important scientific work in this field over the years. May enjoy continued success in your future research endeavors.

The Commission by environmental campaignersforecast 3 trillion euros would generate by 2050 ontheir green revolution campaign- to make EU energy almost totally carbon free.The energy shift would already create around half amillion extra jobs by 2020,Crown researchersfromGerman aerospace center DLR, which also specializesin energy and transport, found. It has legislated toensure that 20 percent of the energy mix is green by the said year, as part of a set of three mainenvironmental goals. But it has yet to achieveagreement on binding targets beyond 2020, eventhough non-binding roadmaps have laid out the needfor a virtually carbon-free electricity mix by 2050. Commissioned by Greenpeace and the EuropeanRenewable Energy Council (EREC), the 2012Energy evolution report lays out risk avoidancetowards almost carbon-free energy. They includecurbing energy demand through greater efficiency,increasing investment in wind and solar power andphasing out subsidies for carbon-intensive energy,such as coal. To bring about the energy transformation, it sees aneed to invest about 99 billion euros between now and2050 or else this will be added on the list of renewableenergy scam, but it says the financial gains are muchgreater. Renewable energy has no fuel costs; the fuelcost savings in the energy evolution scenario reach atotal of 3, 010 billion euros up to 2050, or 75 billion per year. Another benefit is job-creation, one of their strides infraud prevention. TheCrown reportfinds almost totally green energy would lead to half a million extra jobscompared with business as usual, as renewable energy initially demands more workers than carrying on withfossil fuel.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is Peak Oil News for December 26th, 2012. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything in-between. The updated 2013 Nissan Leaf has been released in Japan. It's getting about a 10 mile electric range increase from about 73 to 83 miles. There will also be an entry level model of the Leaf which will be cheaper than previous models. More importantly, Nissan opened it's new battery plant in Tennessee. These American made lithium battery packs will go into the electric cars that will be made in the adjacent Nissan plant. The Leaf battery upgrade, however, does not include a liquid cooling system for the batteries. The military is researching the use of electric vehicles to provide energy security to military base micro grids. In conjunction with wind and solar, EV's can help stabilize a military bases power grid during disruptions. Hopefully this will reduce military casualties, as many soldiers have died while delivering diesel fuel across the battlefield to military bases. It is reported that up to $52 billion a year is spent on fossil fuel subsidies. A lot of the subsidy is in the form of free overseas military services, securing of pipelines and keeping the oil shipping lanes secure. Many people don't realize that American tax dollars pay for the oil flow security that all other oil importing nations benefit from at no cost to them. If you had the oil companies pay, for the free military services they receive, gas would cost well over $10 a gallon and you wouldn't need a Bush EV $7500 tax credit to help sell plug-in cars. Energy starved Japan has plans for a $100 billion 310 mph MAGLEV train for Toyko. It is expected to travel 160 miles in about 40 minutes. These are the types of mass transit systems we should have built in the United States many years ago. Instead, we drove our SUV's and let our railroads deteriorate as we ignored the conventional cheap oil peak. It will be difficult to build these rail systems in a contracting, no growth, post peak cheap oil economy. A $5 LED gravity powered light has been created. It will provide light for people in third world countries saving them from having to burn expensive Kerosene for lighting. The user lifts a weight attached to the lamp and pulls a rope for about 3 seconds. This will provide lighting for about half and hour.

This Valentine’s Day, Americans will spend $1.5 billion on approximately 220 million flowers, most of which are roses grown in Colombia and Ecuador. The billion dollar flower industry in Colombia, in fact, employs over 100,000 workers. Unfortunately, the truth about this booming market is that working conditions on flower farms are often far from rosy (pun intended). Many workers find themselves stricken with asthma from inhaling fuel and pesticide fumes; work seven days a week; and rarely receive vacation or overtime. Access to medical care and educational opportunities are also scarce–a harsh reality for those who need it the most. The good news is that you can still give that special someone a bouquet of beautiful red roses this Valentine’s Day AND support the farmers and workers that grew them. Fair Trade Certified™ flowers are a great way to celebrate this 700-year-old holiday—a way to share the love with folks at home and give special thanks to farmers and workers abroad. Take the case of Ana Salome Sivinta, a 25-year-old woman who works among 175 employees at Jardines Piaveri, a Fair Trade flower estate in Ecuador. Prior to working at Piaveri, Ana worked at a broccoli farm where she had no benefits–not even those required by Ecuadorian law. She had no job or labor protections, no access to healthcare, was not paid minimum wage, and did not earn overtime for extra hours worked at the farm. Ana’s life changed significantly after she began working at a Fair Trade estate. She now has access to medical care, enjoys 21 vacation days a year, can afford to see a dentist, earns higher wages, and is also able to borrow money through a loan program made possible by the Fair Trade Community Development Premium. With this additional income, Ana was able to buy a small plot of land and build her own home. She also purchased a washing machine, and can now spend less time washing clothes in the river and more time at home with her family and friends. When we asked Ana what message she would like to send to American consumers this Valentine’s Day, she replied: “I would ask that they continue buying Fair Trade flowers, because with that income the families that work on the certified farm can improve our standard of living and can provide a better future for our children.” – Ana Salome Sivinta, Jardines Piaveri flower estate A gift of Fair Trade flowers also supports women’s empowerment, and education for workers and their families. Meet María Carmelina Chimborazo Guamangalle, a 22-year-old single mother who came to the AGROCOEX estate in Ecuador after working for years on a conventional flower farm. In addition to feeling that she is valued as both a woman and a worker, Fair Trade makes it easier for María to balance her job with parenthood. She now has access to things like transportation subsidies, child care services and monthly incentive bonuses to further support her family. Student grants made possible by Fair Trade Premiums also helped María complete her secondary education; she now aspires to grow her leadership role at the farm.“I want to see this company grow, and I want to grow within this company,” said María. María is deeply proud of her work at AGROCOEX, and believes that Fair Trade has played an important role not only in her own life, but in the future life of her child. “I live today, and for tomorrow I see better days for myself and my little daughter.” - María Carmelina Chimborazo Guamangalle, AGROCOEX flower estate We cannot think of a better message to share with you this Valentine’s Day. By giving the gift of Fair Trade Certified flowers to your loved ones at home, you’re also showing support for women like María and Ana who are working hard for a better tomorrow. So go forth, and share the love. Read full article at TriplePundit****

*******www.guardian******/environment/copenhagen . *******www.guardian******/environment/2009/dec/18/obama-speech-copenhagen-climate-summit . Obama's speech to the Copenhagen climate summit . US president addresses the summit on the final day of the talks guardian******, Friday 18 December 2009 12.06 GMT . Good morning. It's an honor to for me to join this distinguished group of leaders from nations around the world. We come together here in Copenhagen because climate change poses a grave and growing danger to our people. You would not be here unless you – like me – were convinced that this danger is real. This is not fiction, this is science. Unchecked, climate change will pose unacceptable risks to our security, our economies, and our planet. That much we know. So the question before us is no longer the nature of the challenge – the question is our capacity to meet it. For while the reality of climate change is not in doubt, our ability to take collective action hangs in the balance. I believe that we can act boldly, and decisively, in the face of this common threat. And that is why I have come here today. As the world's largest economy and the world's second largest emitter, America bears our share of responsibility in addressing climate change, and we intend to meet that responsibility. That is why we have renewed our leadership within international climate negotiations, and worked with other nations to phase out fossil fuel subsidies. And that is why we have taken bold action at home – by making historic investments in renewable energy; by putting our people to work increasing efficiency in our homes and buildings; and by pursuing comprehensive legislation to transform to a clean energy economy. These actions are ambitious, and we are taking them not simply to meet our global responsibilities. We are convinced that changing the way that we produce and use energy is essential to America's economic future – that it will create millions of new jobs, power new industry, keep us competitive, and spark new innovation. And we are convinced that changing the way we use energy is essential to America's national security, because it will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and help us deal with some of the dangers posed by climate change. So America is going to continue on this course of action no matter what happens in Copenhagen. But we will all be stronger and safer and more secure if we act together. That is why it is in our mutual interest to achieve a global accord in which we agree to take certain steps, and to hold each other accountable for our commitments. After months of talk, and two weeks of negotiations, I believe that the pieces of that accord are now clear. First, all major economies must put forward decisive national actions that will reduce their emissions, and begin to turn the corner on climate change. I'm pleased that many of us have already done so, and I'm confident that America will fulfill the commitments that we have made: cutting our emissions in the range of 17 percent by 2020, and by more than 80 percent by 2050 in line with final legislation. Second, we must have a mechanism to review whether we are keeping our commitments, and to exchange this information in a transparent manner. These measures need not be intrusive, or infringe upon sovereignty. They must, however, ensure that an accord is credible, and that we are living up to our obligations. For without such accountability, any agreement would be empty words on a page. Third, we must have financing that helps developing countries adapt, particularly the least-developed and most vulnerable to climate change. America will be a part of fast-start funding that will ramp up to $10 billion in 2012. And, yesterday, Secretary Clinton made it clear that we will engage in a global effort to mobilize $100 billion in financing by 2020, if – and only if – it is part of the broader accord that I have just described. Mitigation. Transparency. And financing. It is a clear formula – one that embraces the principle of common but differentiated responses and respective capabilities. And it adds up to a significant accord – one that takes us farther than we have ever gone before as an international community. The question is whether we will move forward together, or split apart. This is not a perfect agreement, and no country would get everything that it wants. There are those developing countries that want aid with no strings attached, and who think that the most advanced nations should pay a higher price. And there are those advanced nations who think that developing countries cannot absorb this assistance, or that the world's fastest-growing emitters should bear a greater share of the burden. We know the fault lines because we've been imprisoned by them for years. But here is the bottom line: we can embrace this accord, take a substantial step forward, and continue to refine it and build upon its foundation. We can do that, and everyone who is in this room will be a part of an historic endeavor – one that makes life better for our children and grandchildren. Or we can again choose delay, falling back into the same divisions that have stood in the way of action for years. And we will be back having the same stale arguments month after month, year after year – all while the danger of climate change grows until it is irreversible. There is no time to waste. America has made our choice. We have charted our course, we have made our commitments, and we will do what we say. Now, I believe that it's time for the nations and people of the world to come together behind a common purpose. We must choose action over inaction; the future over the past – with courage and faith, let us meet our responsibility to our people, and to the future of our planet. Thank you.

WAYS TO FIND NEW BUSINESS But becoming an entrepreneur, whether you're starting from scratch or buying into a franchise or existing business requires you to look beyond simple financial returns. You may already be earning a good living. But other than making money, maybe you just can't find another compelling reason to go to work in the morning for making business fit. The five ways or factors make sure the new business fit you can still feel content in your decision: 1. Is there a financial fit? Run three financial scenarios – best case, average case (or best guess) and worst case. Shoot for the best case, but make sure your decision is based on the average case scenario. Also, make sure you can survive the worst case. 2. Does the job match your personality? What does the business owner do each day? Will you find that work meaningful and satisfying? Will you be good at it? One of the most effective ways to answer these questions is to contact people you've worked with in the past, and ask for honest opinions. 3. Will you fit in with the culture and environment? Go out and meet many of the people you will be potentially working with. If it's a franchise operation, meet the franchisor's leadership and support staff. If you are acquiring a business, talk to the employees, customers and vendors. 4. Is there a compelling value proposition? Make sure you have high belief and confidence in what you're selling. Does the product or service add more value than it costs? Does it have staying power in the marketplace, or will it be replaced by something new? 5. Is this calling you to a higher purpose? The business exists to provide "innovative ways to improve the quality of life locally, nationally and internationally." Google seeks to "organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful."

MARKET BUSINESS WITH OUT MONEY It’s a great time to own or start a business. The social web makes it more cost-effective than ever to get the word out about your products and services, no matter what industry you’re in. Most social media accounts are free to set up, and many targeted online ad platforms are inexpensive. The most it will cost you to get your marketing campaign rolling, at least in the beginning, is time. Become an expert in marketing business Advertising is not always the best way to market on social networks. People crave valuable content, and it can be as niche as the very products you’re selling. By blogging, tweeting, sharing, and updating about things relevant to your industry, you can build credibility in your field. Whether you’re selling specialty cookies or enterprise software, you probably have significant expertise that you can share with potential customers. Marketing through social Medias When an endorsement comes from someone outside of your company, like a trusted blogger or social sharer, it has greater value and reach than anything you could send through official channels. You can’t control what the social web says about your business directly, but by identifying and wooing brand ambassadors, you can certainly have an influence, the kind that no paid advertisement can match. Ad-funded payments If you have a steady flow of customers, and you’re looking to boost the size of your transactions and increase customer loyalty, one low- (or no-) cost strategy is to implement transactional advertising. Consumers are able to get your product for free in return for buying something from a brand advertiser such as your brand for business. The advertiser then pays you once the sale is completed were it is the cheapest business for marketing. For companies selling relatively low-cost or web-accessible products, a highly targeted “reverse advertising” strategy like this could be a smart move.

SMALL BUSINESS TO BIG BUSINESS Necessity may indeed be the mother of invention. Sometimes, though, an actual mother is the necessity — for the inventor at least. Teen inventor Carter Kostler That’s the case for Carter Kostler, a 14-year-old ninth-grader from Virginia Beach, Va., whose parents invested time, research and personal funds to make his vision a reality. New product to sketch prototype in 6 months Six months after dreaming up his concept for a fruit-infused water bottle — a product designed with the goal of improving one’s health and the environment — Kostler’s invention recently received patent-pending status. And with a little help from the Kickstarter community, he’ll soon kick his bottle-making enterprise into full gear with his first production run. The young entrepreneur expects to have 1,000 bottles arriving in stores during the first week. Idea in carter kostler mind for invention Kostler got the inspiration for the Define Bottle — his first entrepreneurial venture — from watching his mom Carla Weisman cut up fresh fruit in the mornings to make spa water in a pitcher. When she left the house, though, she couldn’t bring the fruit-infused water with her. That got him wondering, how can we make spa water portable? Soon, he came to his parents with sketches, and the family quickly went into action. They researched and found a patent attorney, an industrial design company and a branding firm — all, coincidentally, in California. The family never met any of the consultants in person. The industrial design firm signed a non-disclosure agreement, and started making renderings, coming up with some 40 concepts, says Weisman. The family narrowed down their choices, and the designers developed a prototype. We really let him take the lead of his vision on it, says Weisman, who filed the patent application in her name because her son is a minor. Kostler, who is interested in marketing, also worked on branding the bottle.
