Planet Citizen Action

SJS/GreenPolicy360 Siterunner: The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970 presented beginnings of a wave, a powerful expression of green ideals and ideas emerging in a serious and historic event. Earth Day as a green wave rolls on as a worldwide movement. Day after day, year after year, decade after decade, #PlanetCitizens are Going Green...

<Flashback, a Beginning to Climate Action -- 1978, Climate Action Memories

GreenPolicy360: We are engaged in and tracking decades of Climate and Earth Science

Start here with the story of our friend, Representative George E. Brown, who stepped up in the U.S. Congress


First National Climate Act

Origin stories of the beginnings of modern environmental and climate science can be traced to the 1960s and 1970s

The U.S. National Academy of Sciences played a key role in laying a foundation of scientific reports and data: Energy and Climate Report, 1977, National Academy of Sciences / 175 pp. / PDF via GreenPolicy360.The Academy report was utilized and followed by the National Climate Program Act in 1978.

GreenPolicy360's siterunner watched Rep. Brown speak of the findings of a first-of-its-kind Energy and Climate Report from the Academy of Sciences and the Representative from California moved decisively to make the science actionable. Rep. Brown proposed and drafted the legislation of the U.S. National Climate Program in 1977-1978 and went on to advance unprecedented Climate and Earth Science action until his death in 1999. The Congressman's record over three-decades of environment/climate/earth science initiatives and programs continue to this day, a Generation Green legacy-in-action.

The Climate Act was the first program to study and assess scientifically the issues and risks of human-caused climate change.

US Public Law 95-367.png


The National Climate Act and 1970s/80s legislation was a foundation for comprehensive initiatives and array of decades-long Earth Science missions led by NASA, NOAA, EPA, USGS and programs/applications/research at universities and companies across the US.

Today a 360ยฐ Earth Observing System continues the missions that set in motion Earth Science Research from Space.

GreenPolicy360 looks at visionaries who were prescient, envisioning and developing digital, multispectral imaging of Planet Earth. This digital technology enabled data-collection that powers database-imaging Earth Science of today.

NASA: You can manage only what you can measure

Q: What are the main science questions you (JPL/Caltech/NASA) hope OCO-3 will answer?

The big science question is about the movement of carbon dioxide between plants and the atmosphere.

If you look at the ground-based data, it almost looks like the planet is breathing. Plants in the northern hemisphere take up carbon dioxide as they grow in the spring and summer, reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by a few parts per million. In the fall, the leaves drop and carbon is released back into the air.

But every year is different... What we want to do is find drivers of the plant uptake of carbon and use that to better predict what will happen in the future. If we have a warmer, drier climate, will plants keep taking up as much carbon?

The 8 Million++ Species We Donโ€™t Know

Large 'Charismatic' Creatures & Rarely Seen "Tiny Little Ones"

About Baselines and Change.png

Microbiomes at Risk

The most striking fact about the living environment may be how little we know about it. Even the number of living species can be only roughly calculated. A widely accepted estimate by scientists puts the number at about 10 million. In contrast, those formally described, classified and given two-part Latinized names (Homo sapiens for humans, for example) number slightly more than two million. With only about 20 percent of its species known and 80 percent undiscovered, it is fair to call Earth a little-known planet.

To effectively manage protected habitats, we must also learn more about all the species of our planet and their interactions within ecosystems.

The best-explored groups of organisms are the vertebrates (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes), along with plants, especially trees and shrubs. Being conspicuous, they are what we familiarly call โ€œwildlife.โ€ A great majority of other species, however, are by far also the most abundant. I like to call them โ€œthe little things that run the world.โ€ They teem everywhere, in great number and variety in and on all plants, throughout the soil at our feet and in the air around us. They are the protists, fungi, insects, crustaceans, spiders, pauropods, centipedes, mites, nematodes and legions of others whose scientific names are seldom heard by the bulk of humanity. In the sea and along its shores swarm organisms of the other living world โ€” marine diatoms, crustaceans, ascidians, sea hares, priapulids, coral, loriciferans and on through the still mostly unfilled encyclopedia of life.

Do not call these organisms โ€œbugsโ€ or โ€œcritters.โ€ They too are wildlife. Let us learn their correct names and care about their safety. Their existence makes possible our own. We are wholly dependent on them.

Climate Modeling

Planetary-scale Earth simulations known as global climate model projections are the primary sources of information on future climate change.

Climate models are based on mathematical equations represented using a grid mesh that covers the globe: a finer grid mesh is more accurate but much more computationally expensive. Current global climate projections agree that a world with more greenhouse gases will be warmer everywhere, especially over land and at high latitudes.

About the GreenPolicy360 Network

Across borders, our network of websites, social media, associates and resources provide "green best practices" for all seasons. Our green news updates and online database deliver local and global green eco-policies that are actionable 24/7/365.

We've experienced multiple millions of page visits, views and engagements. As a distributive web model, sharing green best practices, ideas and news, we reach every country on Planet Earth, sharing with multiplying effect. We believe green dreams and green values in practice can turn 'ripples into waves' of change.

Our GreenLinks global connections, #PlanetCitizens in action, is growing as many of us see the immediate necessity of confronting the climate crisis and environmental challenges on multiple fronts.

GreenPolicy360 was developed for use in all communities, local, national, and international. GreenPolicy lets you know how other communities are dealing with key green policy issues of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Use the models and templates here to craft green legislation/proposals/resolutions/ordinances for your local community. Use our online platform to build on what has worked in other communities and locations.

Create waves of change and keep on keeping on!

"Think global and act local! Think local and act global! It's all connected, it's all related."
