The

50th Anniversary of Earth Day

was officially April 22, 2020. I watched the ongoing broadcasts and listened to many very articulate youth activists who fully impressed me. There were numerous featured scientists, artists and musicians and indigenous people bringing forth informative and inspiring messages as well. Thank you all so much for sharing and being part of the voice of the new evolving story.

What prompted me to write this blog in the first place, was synchronistically coming upon this powerful 20 minute video presentation by Eileen Crist, in her ‘Confronting Anthropocentrism’. Powerful information as a mirror for humanity to look into the mirror, and move forward.

Even Pope Francis speaks to power. The pontiff said that the (Wuhan virus) Coronavirus outbreak offers an opportunity to slow down the rate of production and consumption and to learn to understand and contemplate the natural world.

“We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted? Who speaks now of the floods?” the Pope said.

Storyteller and film maker Julio Vincent Gambuto wrote an excellent article talking about moving forward. “Prepare for the Ultimate Gas Lighting

“What happened is inexplicably incredible. It’s the greatest gift ever unwrapped. Not the deaths, not the virus, but The Great Pause”

And with this, I only will add two wonderful music videos by artists who contributed their work for Earth Day.

Our Living Planet Needs Us All to Be Part of the Solution | App that compels and empowers people globally to contribute to a worldwide watchdog network

World Wildlife fund 1.25B animals perish AU fires

7 News Australia World Wildlife Fund estimates 1.25B animals have perished in Australia fires due to human destructive practices leading to ecocide and global warming.

Our Living Planet Needs Us to Say No EVERYWHERE to ANY War, Oil Drilling Activity, Fracking, new Highway production, Clearing of Forests for crops, coal or any energy other than sustainable, no to mining (emphasizing recycling) no to Big Ag or Big Meat production, No to plastic production, No to the Capitalism machine of endless production with the sole aim to increase the GDP, with no consideration for the mass extinction and spoiling and destruction of the natural systems on our planet. It is time to take a stance, and through your actions, be part of the solution.

Note an App idea:

Any city, state or federal government that allows, gives the go ahead, to any new production that isn’t aimed towards ecological sustainability, should be targeted and stopped by an international community of watchdogs. In other words, someone should create an app so that anyone, anywhere in the world can do a thumbs up for who is funding or subsidizing beneficial ecological practices according to what the site (community of scientists and specialists and elders) agree upon as ‘best practices’
And a thumbs down, listing of any projects that are obviously continuing the status quo, contributing to the suffocation or destruction of any natural system that doesn’t take into consideration the entirety of the natural world. Any information that anyone knows – local or covering a broader region – can be posted, investigated and tracked on this global site. All people can actively participate. The app needs to be something that makes people proud and empowered, and also compels them to be involved.

Sir David Attenborough ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet‘ begins on BBC One at 18:15 GMT on Sunday 27 October.

Attenborough explains > What you can do to help the planet.

“The best motto DON’T WASTE  – Do not waste things.

Don’t waste electricity, paper, food. Live the way you want to live but just don’t waste. Look after the natural world and the animals in it and the plants in it too, this is their planet as well as ours.”

Half-Earth Project, narrated by Walter Jetz Esri UC 2019 explains that we can all participate and contribute to the half-earth project by sampling and map making, tracking biodiversity. Yale University students have been meeting with scientists to help track the areas of land and water that are more saturated with biodiversity, and thus prime territory to save in order to guard more species.

Living with Less is Living with More: Co-creating a New Story – Our Relationships

I was going to tack this video within the post c-change conversations with respect to the spiritual relationship we need to co-create, with ourselves, between one another and with the water, the sky, soil, a spider, a bird or rhinoceros. Yet his words and viewpoint needs to stand on its own.

Living with Less is LIving with More Co-Creating a New Story A New Relationship with Earth and her Creatures

 

Living with Less is Living with More: Co-Creating a New Story A New Relationship with Earth and her Creatures
Our hearts and intuition contain the answer to co-creating this new story. A story in which we are not clumsily or hurriedly passing through, busying ourselves and not-wasting-any-time in our stress-filled harried lives.

“Can you imagine a more beautiful world your hearts knows is possible?

We have inherited a culture without any critical inquiry.”

 

Leo Murray talks of the need to decouple the relationship between standards of living and quality of life.

Authors, visionaries and thought leaders who are inspiration to less is more: Charles Eisenstein, Daniel Pinchbeck, Niki Harré, Yuval Noah Harari, David Holmgren, Masanobu Fukuoka, Bill Mollison.

Niki Harré talks in this video about the Psychology and the Infinite Game In it she describes the distinction between the Finite and Infinite Games.

 

The purpose of the infinite game is to continue the game.

The purpose of the finite game is to win.

The infinite game invites others in and is full of creativity, the rules continually change and all are flexible in their interactions.

The finite game includes only select people, it is all about replication and does not bend. In life, the finite game winnings are such as getting a trophy, owning property, getting a degree, a promotion, publishing an article, get funded for a program.

She talks of the amazing power of symbol and metaphor. And that in order to keep the infinite game in play, we need to trust people and promote creativity. It’s up to all of us to bring this awareness into our workplace, schools and communities.

C-Change Conversations | Making Sense

C-change conversations has a group of volunteers that span the spectrum in terms of political interests:

C-change conversations has a group of volunteers that span the spectrum in terms of political interests:

C-change conversations has a group of volunteers that converse and act on bringing their message about climate change across the country, in a non-partisan and unbiased manner. They are talking to all sorts of groups across the country > specifically garnered for skeptics. People have told them that their presentation opens peoples’ eyes, hearts and minds.

They have a powerful tool to wake people up: it is persuasive, data driven and based on science> open up minds and hearts without stirring up partisan resentment.

I just attended their presentation October 4th, which I found out about through a gentlemen who attends the same french conversation group. I am very impressed with the C-Change conversations group and presentation. They make an effort not to drag politics or anything that may ruffle peoples comfort. It’s thorough, professionally done, and is for climate change skeptics; people who haven’t really understood or known exactly what to think about climate change.

Our C-Change Primer is an educational, non-partisan presentation on the science of climate change. We developed the C-Change Primer in consultation with scientists, business leaders and public policy experts working on climate change. We present the Primer in cities and towns across the United States to community organizations, business and professional associations and at local libraries, etc.

C-Change conversations doesn’t look at climate change as an environmental issue, nor a political issue, but something as something much greater, that will impact what Americans say are most important to them:
> our economy and job security
> our health, well being and personal security
> our exposure to geopolitical instability

Their presentation takes us through 5 questions of how climate change affects us.

They claim that their powerful tool to wake people up is persuasive, data driven and based on science. It opens up minds and hearts without stirring up partisan resentment.

Climate change transcends politics, influencing you negatively regardless of your political persuasion and impact you regardless of your personal wealth.

“So it’s kind of a combination of both industry and conservative philanthropies that are funding this process, and what they did was they borrowed a great deal of the strategy and tactics that came out of the tobacco industry’s efforts to prevent action on the health impacts of smoking.”

C-change conversations does not move into the ‘spiritual’, of the need to create a paradigm shift in how we approach our world, but I do. Charles Eisenstein says it in his speech to a group in New Zealand, about once again absolutely loving and valuing all of the natural world, as opposed to viewing it as a commodity to be manipulated and quantified.
