Re: Truth-Telling

โ€œAlmost no single revelation will cause significant change by itself,โ€ Ellsberg said in a recent Washington Post video, explaining how the truth needs allies in persistence. โ€œBut in combination with other informationโ€”other truth-tellingโ€”courage is contagious.โ€ -- Daniel Ellsberg

"In Memory of a Man Named Daniel"

Steve Schmidt / GreenPolicy360 Founder: In each of our lives we must make choices, daily life choices, easy choices. Then there are the times of hard, difficult, far-reaching choices, monumental, even frightening moments when we make conscious, and conscientious, choices we sense will continue far beyond our day-to-day reality.

These can be ethical challenges that will profoundly change our life and the lives of others -- and we sense there will be no turning back.

Such a moment came in the life of Daniel Ellsberg one dark night as waves crashed on the beach outside his Malibu home.

I remember that night Dan Ellsberg was making a life-changing decision and write about his action and resolve here. In later decades, as a type of planet citizen, Dan would go on to inspire other brave souls to speak up and do the right thing.

Planet citizens in action carry on...

Time for Planet Citizen Action and a "CEOS", a Committee on Earth Observation Satellites

GreenPolicy360 welcomes the arrival of a global science mission, a "Global Stocktake", a collection of earth science data to be made available to the community of nations, to planet citizen activists and scientists, educational institutions, non-profits, NGOs, young and old to become tools for legal enforcement of national climate plans & pledges

Steven J Schmidt - GreenPolicy360 / SJS: The thing is the future doesn't vote. Future generations don't influence, ante up dollars or deal out megadollars to politicos... the #PoliticoPay and #MoneyinPolitics game is a U.S. high stakes game played today. Quid pro quo, it is a pay-to-play politics as Richard Jacobs accurately describes in his book, a 'Democracy of Dollars'.

Fact is, future generations will face the results of today's Money in Politics barter.

And yes, of course we have options, choices that can change the future.

โ€˜Climate Advocates Say Itโ€™s Not Too Late

March 2022 / NYT

A growing chorus of young people is focusing on climate solutions. โ€œโ€˜Itโ€™s too lateโ€™ means โ€˜I donโ€™t have to do anything, and the responsibility is off me.โ€™โ€

Alaina Wood is well aware that, planetarily speaking, things arenโ€™t looking so great. Sheโ€™s read the dire climate reports, tracked cataclysmic weather events and gone through more than a few dark nights of the soul.

She is also part of a growing cadre of people, many of them young, who are fighting climate doomism, the notion that itโ€™s too late to turn things around. They believe that focusing solely on terrible climate news can sow dread and paralysis, foster inaction, and become a self-fulfilling prophecy...

โ€œPeople are almost tired of hearing how bad it is; the narrative needs to move onto solutions,โ€ said Ms. Wood, 25, a sustainability scientist who communicates much of her climate messaging on TikTok, the most popular social media platform among young Americans. โ€œThe science says things are bad. But itโ€™s only going to get worse the longer it takes to act.โ€

Some climate advocates refer to the stance taken by Ms. Wood and her allies as โ€œOK Doomer,โ€ a riff on โ€œOK Boomer,โ€ the Gen Z rebuttal to condescension from older folks.

If awareness about the climate crisis has never been greater, so, too, has been a mounting sense of dread about its unfolding effects, particularly among the young. Two-thirds of Americans thought the government was doing too little to fight climate change, according to a 2020 Pew study, while a survey last year of 10,000 teens and young adults in 10 countries found that three quarters were frightened of the future.

Earth Science Vital Signs

Eco Definition via Merriam-Webster Dictionary

For the now-ubiquitous prefix eco-, we can thank the great German zoologist Ernst Haeckel, who in 1866 coined the term oekologie from the Greek oikos, meaning โ€œhome, place to live.โ€ Haeckel was thinking primarily of the โ€œhomesโ€ of animals, but by the time the word translated into English in 1875 (initially spelled โ€œoecologyโ€), its meaning had broadened to embrace plant habitats as well. The related term ecosystem was proposed by the British botanist Arthur Tansley, 60 years after one of his own professors first translated Haeckelโ€™s oekologie. It may have been ecosystem, which treats eco- as a prefix to a standard English word, that gave English speakers permission to do the same in coining a host of other terms...
