Taking Action on Climate Change

Our greatest potential impact wiin the shortest amount of time.

To properly address "Global Warming" as quickly and aggressively as possible, and to do so in a cost effective manner. Humanity needs to start addressing "Aquatic Warming" just as aggressively as it has addressed CO2's, because it is at least as large a contributing factor that has even more potential to stabilize or moderate the climate. But before we can go any further and start implementing systems and measures, we... more »

Taking Action on Climate Change

Desert based elevated solar, with crop growth.

If elevated solar structures were placed in the deserts, then crops might be growable in the shade created by the structures, which could also hold the watering system. On a large scale this would create a cooling affect by converting the solar energy into electricity and by having the vegetation obsorb much of the remaining filtered light energy. This would be a very cost effective measure of compensation, for it's size.... more »

The harvesting of natural aquatic thermal sources.

To help compensate for humanities massive aquatic thermal contribution that has accumulated. We should seriously consider a tax for every substantial identifiable aquatic thermal contributor, to fund the effort of either harvesting or venting off many of the natural sources of aquatic thermal contribution. Such as thermal vents and stabilized volcanic fishers. To help compensate for our human contribution. This can be... more »

Reducing humanities aquatic thermal footprint.

In our effort to address aquatic warming, humanity needs to tax, restrict, reduce, and redirect as much of the current source of aquatic thermal contamination. To help stop and reverse the effects of our human related aquatic thermal accumulation. Our thermal contribution has accumulated, because teh oceans have a predominant downwards direction of conduction. We need to seriously address this problem, just as aggressively... more »

Reforestation and vegetation

Because deforestation has greately contributed to atmospheric warming, humanity needs to insist that everyone involved in timber removal is properly taxed, to insure that reforestation and revegetation efforts are taking place. Also, all solar projects need to receive the best tax incentives and funding possible, because converting solar energy into electricity helps to cool the planet by reducing the solar thermal contribution... more »

Taking Action on Climate Change

Types of systems that can address global warming.

In tropical regions where the waters are extremely hot, yet very calm. Elevated solar structures can create surface cold-spotting, thus venting, while also converting the suns solar contribution into valuable electricity. Also, desert based elevated solar electric structures also promote cooling, in a cost effective manner, while allowing the potential for crops to be grown in the shade of the structures. These are just... more »

Taking Action on Climate Change

Cooling the oceans back down.

Humanity can aggressively address aquatic warming, simply by imposing much stricter regulations against continued aquatic thermal contamination. Taxes and tax incentives can be imposed. All weapons testing and other unnecessary thermal sources should be banned around the globe. All sea going vessels, nuclear reactors, city sewers, factories, industry, agriculture etc…on the open waters and along the shoreline should have... more »

Hello

My name is Dean Carroll.I am a normal workimg 24 year old living in Australia.

Manage SCOPE of Forest Fires

In Colorado there are 3.6M+ acres of beetle-kill pine. We are in a sever to extreme drought and it is only getting worse every day.

Current USDA Forest Service policy and budget allow for the protection of human life and residential structures. Forest firest are not prevented from occurring (using thinning of deadwood and other management practices), as learned from the Yellowstone fire.

This beetle-kill is primarily... more »

Value Environmental Resources to Encourage Preservation

Currently, we ask private property owners to preserve resources that the public values. The public must compensate the property owner based on the value of the resource. This can be done with density bonuses, transferable development rights and/or tax breaks.

The current system encourages impacts to resources to preserve property value. The public will have to accept higher densities on good developable property in... more »

EPA Illegal Human Experimentation

The US Environmental Protection Agency and its Administrator Lisa Jackson are on the defendant’s end of a federal lawsuit claiming the Agency conducted illegal human experimentation on unsuspecting study volunteers.

The EPA, and Jackson in her official capacity, are targeted in the lawsuit for knowingly “conducting experiments on humans that involved exposing those persons to toxic substances the Agency believes will... more »
