8 minute Space Flight ≥ World Population’s Carbon Emissions in a Lifetime  |  Let your Conscience Decide  |  What Can You Imagine?

Let your conscience decide. But before you can make a decision, you need to be informed. After all, this affects you. While we’re busy progressing through (or digressing from) our life’s daily activities and responsibilities, there’s a truth blazing right in front of our eyes. Hint: It’s not a comet

Leonardo DiCaprio Explains Don’t Look Up | Netflix

That’s right, An 8 minute space flight is equivalent to 1 Million people’s carbon emissions in a lifetime.

I participated in a 2 hour informational meeting organized through members of the Boston XR chapter 1/11/22. The Extinction Rebellion talk was about taking hold of your democratic right to have your voice heard. The topic of the meeting, non-violent direct action; pressing the political body and the media to tell the truth to the public. Non-violent direct action has been around for a long time; such as what Mahatma Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau and Rosa Parks did. They too, did not feel that the powers that be, were listening. 

Given that neither US political party nor the corporate media give much attention or time to honest communication about Ecological Breakdown and the Climate Crisis. 

While we’re busy, enmeshed in our own worlds, a lot of information of critical importance that affects all of us, is sort of, glazed over. Several years ago when I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I hitched up to the ski basin and a former climate scientist who worked for the California government gave me a lift. He mentioned that in 1991, he was instructed NOT to release his findings in a report, that incriminated the oil industry clearly as being culpable for our heating planet. I was shocked. This wasn’t something to blame on our then current buffoon in the White House. Instead, it reveals a systemic and systematic non disclosure of information; the government and institutions bowing to the industries that feed them with green, and I’m not talking about marijuana. Oh yeah, even the former Speaker of the House during the Obama administration, the guy with the long unsmiling face, John Boehner, who continually voted against legalizing marijuana, now has invested $$$$ in the industry; which is being groomed into a large-scale corporate controlled industry with strict licensing – cutting out the small growers. Boehner has his talons in this one. “John Boehner Was Once ‘Unalterably Opposed’ To Marijuana. He Now Wants It To Be Legal”

In the meantime, the pharmaceutical industry billionaires, along with the tech ones, have also been willingly not disclosing information, as they looked at their sky rocketing accounting books as a burgeoning mass opioid epidemic was happening. They kept quiet, because they were seeing massive profits. 

This systematic cover-up and looking the other way while one’s bank account fattens, has already been in place.

Noam Chomsky talks of this in his interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now regarding the current Anti-Science evangelical movement and Neo-Liberalism in the United States of Amnesia.

I had to look up ‘the scopes trial’. to see what he was referencing. In 1925 in Tennessee, a teacher was tried for having the audacity to teach evolution theory.

He talks of the evangelical, anti-science minions of Trump today who are misguided through a strong media. Chomsky says 

“It is our responsibility to turn the country to sanity.” 

He talks about the trend of Neo Liberalism in the last 40 years and its transfer of wealth from the working and middle class (90%) to the very rich. The religious right is healthy and strong. 

And with his quote in mind, that’s why we can all rebel against extinction, and decide to actually work and act and play together. And say, I wanna hear more? 

What is it that is blazing before our eyes? Well, it was well-covered by the network television stations. I heard the statistic from one of the people in the zoom meeting.

“Jeff Bezos Got as Much Morning Show Coverage in a Day as Climate Change Got All Last Year”

While governments and industries and corporate stories are about pride, conquering, staking one’s territory and profiting from one’s investments.

Our stories are more about surviving, and surfing the net. We might have similar ambitions nestled in quiet achievements and joys about conquering our own fears and losing bad habits. In the meantime, we need to guard from being Zucked by our boy billionaire, who wants to conquer our inner space. Mark would like (with our purchase of his software and hardware) for everyone, to ‘switch’ from life, to a fantasy. From being sensorily in touch with our own bodies, the turning of the planet, the changes of seasons and some semblance of connection to the living systems of our earth and to each other face to face. To instead, buy into Meta. Rather than walking and driving while staring down at our phones, that’s old school. We can instead meet (anyone) and go (anywhere) in Meta, without even having to get dressed or brush our teeth. We can put on any mask or costume we like, to hide behind. A fantasy world that you, yes you, can create. You don’t have to bother to leave your house or couch. Now we’re talking zombi land, for real. We can all say ciao, see ya later, while merging into being mesmerized in our goggles, wired to a virtual universe. 

Why spend time being concerned about nature, if you can ‘be there’. If there are no tigers anymore, who cares? We can visit with them while sitting on the toilet with our googles on and bluetooth.

While the billionaires are shooting off rockets to conquer and profit from space flight – Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Richard Branson – they are ignoring a glaring part of the equation. 

One 8 minute rocket launch is equivalent to 1 million peoples carbon output in a lifetime. 

“How the billionaire space race could be one giant leap for pollution” (not for mankind)

“One rocket launch produces up to 300 tons of carbon dioxide into the upper atmosphere where it can remain for years.”

These are educated intelligent guys, uh, chaotic weather systems from global warming? extinction? 

One Space Trip Emits a Lifetime’s Worth of Carbon Footprint ”That’s pretty messed up.”

This statistical analysis of carbon emissions relative to income and wealth levels globally, clearly indicates where accountability lies 2022 World Inequality Report 

“One space flight emits more carbon dioxide than most of the world’s population will create in their entire lifetime.”

Regarding Global Carbon Inequality

Per capita emissions across the world, 2019
Per capita emissions across the world, 2019
Per capita emissions across the world, 2019

I had to look what MENA stood for. Middle East/North African countries consisting of Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

We are in the midst of an environmental extinction crisis and global heating climate catastrophe whose main driver is fossil fuels and industrialized well, ‘everything’.

Rather than the world’s wealthiest men orchestrating and paying for the seeds for a worldwide participatory tree planting movement, or putting money and incentivizing people to participate in realizing the recently deceased biologist EO Wilson’s Biodiversity foundation and his Half-Earth project, or mobilizing the world’s population to collect plastic and rubber tires and make renewable building materials from them. 

Instead, they perform a virtual drag race (eerily close in time to one another), launching their mechanical penises into the sky, in a salute to endless technical expansion; symbolizing their desire to financially occupy and profit from the skies. Before space junk comes crashing down from failed missions…

Corporate media gave more hours of coverage to the wealthiest men in the world, who rather than saving rainforests, or driving a collective planetary undertaking committed to not building walls and paving every piece of earth, but weaving together habitats and nurturing the earth’s systems: wetlands, forests, rain forests, oceans.

Philip McMaster Sustainaclaus | co-founder World Sustainability Coop

In light of the fact that business enterprises rule and money speaks, XR realize that the only way to pressure change organized from the top down, is to share information and messages to the public and media, to influence those who can coordinate and facilitate major action. 

I can imagine a really delightful more peaceful and beautiful environment, with people interacting and taking the time to build new paradigms in action and interaction, as we physically re-invent life that is not car-driven. I see public parks, gardens, car-free cities, and more care going into education and empowerment. Clean, efficient and pleasant train travel. Bicycle infrastructure everywhere.

What can you imagine?

actions, EChOACTiVate

Word cloud of involved actions in EChOACTiVate

I meditate daily and ask the four forces – earth, air, water and plasma – practicing heart rhythm meditation. My intent is to carry my voice to peoples’ platforms I can participate in and for information and guidance to be carried to me. It’s an intuitive process of trusting in the intelligence and consciousness of the universal force. I feel that many things that appear to ‘happen’ serendipitously, arrive because of intention to connect to this information. Magic? Today, for the first time i clicked on and read this info from this community that I learned of while taking courses when living in Pennsylvania. Interfaith Power & Light: A Religious Response to Global Warming. I’d go to multidisciplinary talks with religious leaders from all these different faiths putting forth their viewpoint on various questions. Opening it, i found out about this, http://globalclimateactionsummit.org/. The Global Climate Action Summit happens to be taking place in San Francisco, September 12th to 14th. Just a week before the ccc reunion.

lets mots, les activité
pour EChOACTIvate

It seems to be an excellent place to continue to disseminate my idea. The idea started years ago, imagined actually right before the COP21 Paris climate talks, which I went to, to Paris for two weeks with 20 dollars.

Previously I named the idea Eco Revolution, then EcoActivate, because the first was taken.

https://digesthis.wordpress.com/2015/11/21/calling-for-echoactivate-partners-core-team-corporate-sponsors-government-subsidies/

lo que tu puedes hacer con EChOACTiVate

The idea is to bring the information to the people, through a cyber portal of information, and a mobile unit that comes to a community with needs that people perceive or perhaps aren’t aware of at all, that they can then do together to clean up and build sustainable energy, transportation and to plant community gardens, bee and butterfly highways, plant trees and build animals bridges…

The idea is to bring people together in a celebratory, participatory way. With the knowledge they need to create, transform and participate in greening their own environment.

Education is the tool. People power is the engine.

I just decided to post this letter of introduction which I’m sending to Charter Schools, to each of my blogs, since perhaps someone who’s involved in education, eBook marketing and publishing, with an affiliation with Charter Schools or knows-how in marketing an educational eBook, to provide me with advice or send someone my way!

It’s not finished, but I thought I’d start with the back-end, or front-end, getting it out there.

…I’m looking for the appropriate person/department (academic materials, material acquisition) to market my eBook, which I believe will be of interest to students as an auxiliary learning tool.

A Seahorse Tale – A Spin on the Matter of Motion Trailer

This science fantasy adventure involves a spiritual quest (no religious affiliation), full of art and science. The adventure involves the quest of a young woman and the characters she meets in her journey, into an upside-down world. Not really upside down, but a place affected by electromagnetism that has lower gravity levels as one climbs to this place. The people there, where the main character is journeying to, have a correspondingly intrinsic capacity of transparent thought. They are conscious of each others’ thoughts and consequently incapable of telling lies. Yet most of the story takes place as Adora journeys there – as there could be sequels!

Frankly, as of June 1st (almost two weeks since posting this), after editing and moving around information as well as researching and editing bibliography sources, the information below has been updated, and still is no longer current! Nevertheless, you get the gist of the contents! I’ve been working hard within a strict time limit – a really good thing.

2021 Version, TOC, Table of Contents, Carol Keiter, Young Adult educational ebook, A Seahorse Tale, A Spin on the Matter of Motion

The approximately 150 page eBook (Completion end of June, 2017), is designed to be read from beginning to end, or to be read in segments. Almost every page introduces a particular subject; including graphs, charts and links to further investigation of that topic. The online Table of Contents and Bibliography allow the reader to choose from various educational subjects, ranging from biology, climatology, and geography to physics, These scientific topics of inquiry are introduced as they arise in the story; with the inference that these hypothetical events in a fantastical environment, could actually transpire.

Here are a few pages of the bibliography, also subject to change. I’m using google docs in order to also alphabetize the bibliography by subject.

Adora & Vitali: A Spin on the Matter of Motion has a plethora of art accompanying the science links, providing the reader with the capability to further investigate a topic. It is a colorful and refreshing learning tool for students and adults. The eBook is a stepping stone of intrigue for subsequent exploration into a multitude of scientific topics.

I’m an independent contractor who has been writing two blogs since 2009, I’m particularly interested in environmental sustainability, renewable energy, (DIY) do-it-yourself practices to reduce one’s carbon footprint, reinvesting in the community and especially the topics of wildlife and animal habitat preservation. I participated in a 2 week educational forum about the environment in Paris, during the COP21 Climate Talks in Paris, http://www.placetob.org/en/ As a writer, artist, musician and composer, I have no umbrella organization presently supporting me financially. I welcome any suggestions you may have regarding the eBook world of publishing, as I have yet to approach any publishers. I can provide you with additional sections of the book to view its layout and presentation.

Animal Bridges >< Wildlife Crossings | Witnessed way too many dead Deer en route to New York city through Pennsylvania and New Jersey

En route to New York through Pennsylvania and New Jersey my heart was sickened each time I saw the body of a dead deer along the highway, which I witnessed way too many times. The moon was full moon a week ago, which may have had something to do with it. One driver said he had seen quite a large number of dead deer coming from New Jersey on the other side of the highway.

Animal Bridges, Wildlife Crossing

Animal Bridges / Wildlife Crossing


I wish to investigate and contact biologists, zoologists, someone, to find out whether there’s a chance of organizing scientists to research the more likely places that deer will cross highways in these wooded areas of the Northeastern United States, where they are more likely to cross due to less construction, and find a way to emulate what California has already begun – building animal bridges / wildlife crossings.

Their habitat can be stretched across these so that they have more of a chance of survival. Why do I care? Because I care about all creatures. There are indeed segments of the human race who do recognize how awesome and beautiful all of the different creatures are who inhabit this planet with us.

Here’s a great article regarding wildlife over-passes – green bridges describing animal wildlife over-passes already in place in various parts of Europe, and the West of the U.S., which can be adopted everywhere. The following pictures each link to articles about the subject.

“Wildlife overpasses, green bridges, under-passes and ecoducts all refer to structures that have been built over or under roads to allow wildlife to cross safely to the other side of the road.”
