At a recent online meeting of HPAC (the Healthy Planet Action Coalition), Dr. Ye Tao of MEER (Mirrors for Earth’s Energy Rebalancing) delivered an excellent presentation on the feasibility of various global cooling methods. This is crucial information because humankind must quickly focus on the few workable measures that could end global warming and initiate the cooling required for our survival. When asked for my views during the discussion period I said that the meeting…Read More
The extreme weather events of recent years indicate that a fundamental shift has occurred: the age of continuous ecological change is over, and the age of ecological discontinuity has begun.

If you are concerned about the ecological crisis you undoubtedly know that, four decades ago, Exxon scientists warned about “potentially catastrophic events” from rising concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs). You are presumably outraged that the corporation buried these warnings and then funded disinformation campaigns to prevent rational action.
