FOREVER LEGACY OF CLIMATE CHANGE 2

DRASTIC INCREASES IN TEMPERATURES AND SEA LEVELS

We are about to look at the drastic increases in temperatures and sea levels that will alter the earth not just for centuries, but for millennia. Rob Wilder and Dan Kammen wrote an interesting commentary.

What we experienced in the latest hurricanes may well be a prelude to more monster hurricanes, Biblical rain events, and coastal inundations brought about by extreme weather and vastly higher sea levels. The higher temperatures of the oceans that cause hurricanes in the first place will not go away.

Humanity’s continuing failure to bring our enormous carbon emissions under control will have planet-altering impacts that could continue for hundreds of years.

The sea level increases we’re accustomed to seeing today — rising at 1.2 inches per decade is considerably faster than 50 years ago. The geological record indicates that seas might have risen in the distant past at truly astounding rates — one foot per decade for centuries. Nothing remotely like that has been known in recorded human history. Yet you can’t say that having happened before, that it won’t happen again.forever legacy climate change

The last two decades of the 20th century have been hottest in the last 400 years, according to climate studies, but this is only the beginning. Given current trends, keeping to the stated Paris Agreement goal of warming by no more than about 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius) looks quite unlikely. Temperatures 7 to 10 degrees F hotter than today’s would wreak havoc with the oceans, agriculture, and, in the warmest parts of the world, go beyond human endurance.

 Global sea level rose about 8 inches in the last century, but this was only the beginning. Inertia in the climate system is enormous. The massive inertia in the climate system, which means changes in temperature and sea level, will go on and on long past the year 2100. If greenhouse gas emissions continue at roughly today’s levels for another century, that may mean that sea levels 500 years from now would be nearly 50 feet higher as the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets melt. That would mean losing large swaths of coastal areas worldwide. This is where the science takes us. forever legacy climate change

So what is the way out? If there were a simple path, we’d already be following it. Most countries are either, by default, choosing inaction or are moving far too slowly to make deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

 But as renewable energy experts, we believe climate change presents opportunities: for cleaner air, new industries, job growth, and stronger economies. This is already happening in Northern Europe as renewables are simply growing much more attractive than dirty fossil fuels. And we need initial government support for clean-energy industries, as well as long-term funding for research and development on renewable energy, energy efficiency, and battery technologies.

Many solutions are well-known and are readily at hand. The first step might be enacting simple and transparent carbon taxes that begin to reflect true current and long-term costs of dumping CO2 into the atmosphere

But without large-scale coordinated action on many levels across government, academia, and the private sector including the United States, our efforts to drastically cut emissions will fall far short of what chemistry and physics demand. The atmosphere and climate do not respond to hopes or aspirations.

It’s not easy for humans to look far into the future; we are accustomed to thinking that every mistake can be undone and that the earth is unchanging. But the stakes with climate change are uniquely so high, and the damages to the planet and society so enormous, that scientists, the press, politicians, and the public need to peer one century down the road and imagine what kind of world we will be leaving to our descendants.

The geological record shows that unless we rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we will be locking in drastic increases in temperatures and sea levels that will alter the earth not just for centuries, but for millennia.

    HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

    Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

    Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

    This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

    He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

Greed: A Fatal Desire 2

Greed is one of the seven deadly sins, and it seems to be an integral component of human nature. It could also serve as the gateway to moral bankruptcy and the trigger for global devastation. The documentary, Greed: A Fatal Desire, addresses all of these key concerns with probing insight.

There are several theories as to why the human species might harbor greedy tendencies. Most of the film’s narrative is driven by the teachings of Sheldon Solomon, a social psychologist who believes that greed is a reaction to our inherent fear of death, and that each new material possession represents a means of stalling this inevitability. As long as we need, we live. In this age of ego – where the needs of the individual trump all else – our self-esteem is often defined by the things we own.greed fatal desire

In part, this instinct can ensure survival and achievement. But when our quest for more power, possessions, and attention comes at the cost of others, this behavior can cripple individual, communal and cultural relationships. The class divide widens, and an acceptable quality of life becomes unattainable for far too many citizens of the world.Greed fatal desire

In reality, of course, money and possessions do not result in immortality; they’re temporary rewards that can easily enslave us. The things that really matter – family, love, compassion, and harmony with our natural environment – transcend the notion of power and status. It is through them that we can achieve true peace and contentment. We must raise our level of self-awareness and recalibrate our priorities for the benefit of all.

WHY SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED?

GREED FATAL DESIRE

According to the United Nations Development Program, the 20 percent of the world’s people who lived in the wealthiest nations had 30 times the per capita income of the 20 percent who lived in the poorest nations. By 1995 the average income ratio between the richest and poorest 20 percent had increased from 30:1 to 82:1.

TO CHANGE THE WORLD, WE MUST BE GOOD TO THOSE WHO CANNOT REPAY US!

The Super GREED Rich 2

Super Rich: The Greed Game

As the credit crunch bites and a global economic crisis threaten, the documentary,  Super Rich: The Greed Game reveals how the super-rich have made their fortunes, and the rest of us are picking up the bill.Super GREED Rich

Robert Peston, the BBC’s Business Editor, speaks to some of the heavy hitters in hedge-fund and private equity scene. Along with the investment bankers, these are the very people who have been blamed for the current financial woe’s of the world.

The film highlights the fact that these very few people have become super rich, and while the global economy is collapsing around us, they get to sail off into the sunset, with bulging pockets, to lay back, and wait for the next set of opportunities that will come along.

This is a man-made problem, created by the devotion to the false idea that an unregulated free market is the best thing for everyone. This would be true in a perfect world, but there is no single example of a free market on earth. Every government is lobbied by monopolistic companies, and every government subsidizes its uncompetitive industry, which may be failing at the time.

One of the real problems was a lack of regulation in the banking sector. When there were no rules of governance then people cheated and committed fraud. The financial crisis of 2008 was the largest fraud ever seen by the global community and its effects continue today. secrets super rich

The one film out there that explains the greed game is Inside Job a must see film. It takes Reagan and Bush to task for tax cuts that benefit the wealthy; it criticizes Clinton for encouraging derivatives and Obama for failing to deliver on the promise of reform.Super Rich Greed

It’s an artificial situation, and if we deem it unfair to the collective whole of human society, then as a matter of ‘fairness’ we need to change the rules of the game.

WHAT IS AN AUTHENTIC LIFE? 2

authentic lifeWHAT IS AN AUTHENTIC LIFE?

An authentic life starts with a prayer: “I offer you this half hour of my swim for … who is struggling… or any other cause.” So that you “pray continuously” 1 Thessalonians 5:17  So while you are cleaning windows, you simply offer this hour of cleaning for thanksgiving for your family. You offer the actions of your life to God as a prayer. This is the secret on how the busy modern person can find intimacy with God. The interior effect of the work we do becomes more important than the exterior fruits of our work.

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Henry Thoreau in Walden Pond. We all know how people’s lives have become faster and busier every day. It seems as though many people are living merely to survive. The treatment for depression today is ten times greater than previous times.

We lose the reason why we are here: what is the meaning and purpose of our life? If we become distracted from our purpose long enough, we become miserable. Our modern life has become a distraction from our real Christian goal in life.  We either don’t know what this goal is or we cast it aside. Even worst — this goal seems to  make people uncomfortable so the goal is watered down. Ironically, if you take away the goal of the Christian life, you don’t make it easier to live — you make it harder.

You are much happier when you have a higher standard to look to and strive for. Having a meaningful goal flood your spirit with hope and fills your mind with determination.

In truth, holiness is something that God does in us and not something we achieve. God is still the perfect Gentleman.  He invites us to participate in His life, but He never forces Himself on us. He wants our consent because he desires our loving cooperation.

Those who respond to God’s call to holiness are the most joyful people on earth. They have richer, more abundant experience of life and they love more deeply than most people. They enjoy life — all of life.

How do you know that you are close to holiness? You have an insatiable desire to become all God created you to be: and unwavering commitment to the will of God and an unquenchable concern for unholy people. You are continually answering God’s invitation to grasp the moments of your life — perhaps being sensitive to a divine appointment that God has aligned for you. You tap into the grace of God, which is never lacking. In this way you are giving glory to God.AUTHENTIC LIFE

The Idolatry of Wealth and Reevaluation of Treasure

Our holiness is compatible with every state in life. Even the rich are called to live holy lives by using their wealth in productive ways that foster their own growth and the growth of others.

Idolatry? Who can tell me what that word means?” A nine-year-old’s hand shot into the air. “It’s like what some people do with money—they make it more important than God.” The wisdom of these simple words reverberated through the Sunday school classroom.

Christians are called to reject the idolization of wealth in the modern consumerist society. Instead, they are invited to make productive use of material wealth for the ministries of God.

 So long as individuals maintain a greater attachment to worldly possessions than to God, they will find it harder to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to pass through the eye of the needle.

WEALTH IS NOT GREED!
