The Local Jobs Agenda

By Jeff Golden

Some say there are three big issues this election year, in national state and local elections alike: 1) Jobs 2) Jobs and 3) Jobs.

How can county government help that happen? A couple of months ago we started a research project to find out. The result is our Local Jobs Agenda, which we think is unlike any report ever offered before in a… Continue

One Way "Our Strength is Our Community" | Commentary

Jeff - its a small gathering and should end before noon. Right now there are no plans for ridesharing - but I'm sure something could be worked out. Its not really a full-fledged event but just a segment of the greater Elder Youth conference.

Thanks for all your great work. Let's get your book out there in a big way. How about getting a copy to Obama as an inaugural gift? Hope you can come and meet/greet with us this Thursday for our first gathering of new members. See the events calendar for more details. Blessings be.

We Have Five Years To Save Ourselves From Climate Change, Harvard Scientist Says | Forbes

The level of carbon now in the atmosphere hasn't been seen in 12 million years, a Harvard scientist said in Chicago Thursday, and this pollution is rapidly pushing the climate back to its state in the Eocene Epoch, more than 33 million years ago, when there was no ice on either pole. "We have exquisite information about what that state is, because we have a paleo record going back millions of years, when the earth had no ice at either pole. There was almost no temperature difference between the equator and the pole," said James Anderson, a Harvard University professor of atmospheric chemistry best known for establishing that chlorofluorocarbons were damaging the Ozone Layer.

Scientists Keep Warning About The Dangers of 5G; Will We Listen? | Gaia

Over 180 scientists and doctors in almost 40 countries are warning the world about 5G health risks. “Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe” spells it out quite succinctly: “We, the undersigned scientists, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF)… and has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Humans Are Speeding Extinction and Altering the Natural World at an ‘Unprecedented’ Pace | The New York Times

Humans are transforming Earth’s natural landscapes so dramatically that as many as one million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction, posing a dire threat to ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for their survival, a sweeping new United Nations assessment has concluded. The 1,500-page report, compiled by hundreds of international experts and based on thousands of scientific studies, is the most exhaustive look yet at the decline in biodiversity across the globe and the dangers that creates for human civilization. A summary of its findings, which was approved by representatives from the United States and 131 other countries, was released Monday in Paris. The full report is set to be published this year.

Former President Jimmy Carter Just Made a Solar Farm to Power Half His City | Futurism

The solar farm in Plains is expected to generate 1.3 MW of power per year, which is equal to burning about 3,600 tons of coal. Over time, that will prevent a sizable amount of greenhouse gases from being emitted into our atmosphere.
