CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS
Breathtakingly simplistic and snide. And these are our leaders.
From steadystate—— https://steadystate.org/hurricane-ian-a-profoundly-polluting-event/ –Last night on live TV, Don Lemon of CNN was shut down by Jamie Rhome, the acting director of the National Hurricane Center. He’d simply inquired about the linkage between climate change and Hurricane Ian. Rhome replied, “Well we can come back and talk about climate change at a later time; I want to focus on the here and now.”
Unfortunately, the conservancy fails to show us the other side of the coin; namely, that it’s all that economic growth that threatens our oceans to begin with!–end of steadystate info–
The tragedy of a hurricane that suddenly hits an upscale portion of Florida and displaces so many people from their homes has caught the imagination of our leaders in a way that ongoing lack of affordable and livable housing for many of Americans has failed in doing.
From naiveorganizing.org — With just a few months left in the year, Congress must do its job and address the housing crisis in our communities.
According to recently released survey data by the U.S. Census Bureau, 43% of households earning $50,000 or less were spending over half of their income on rent. With rising housing costs and stagnant wages, affordable housing is becoming more and more unachievable.
The affordable housing crisis has also been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic and rising inflation, while eviction rates are back to pre-pandemic levels.href=’https://actionnetwork.org/css/style-embed-v3.css’ rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’ /><script src=’https://actionnetwork.org/widgets/v3/letter/tell-congress-fund-affordable-housing?format=js&source=widget&referrer=[object Object]’></script><div id=’can-letter-area-tell-congress-fund-affordable-housing’ style=’width: 100%’><!– this div is the target for our HTML insertion –></div>

***Capitalism underwrites a system of competition in which predatory behavior is rewarded economically, often at the cost of human resources (people) and natural resources (environment)
***Many people who are concerned abut environmental degradation still participate in a quasi-unavoidable system (unavoidable because it has not yet escaped denial by the public)
***Those who choose to step outside of the competitive system are therefore economically disadvantaged
***Those who accept the capitalistic status quo are economically rewarded, sometimes inordinately
***In order to participate positively in this system people must to some extent, deny the connection between natural resource exploitation and Climate Change
***Some at the top of this Pyramid Scheme even support privatization of land, air, and water
***When said privatizing proponents lose control of air, water, and land, the government steps in to help
***The down side to owning land, water and air is that they are not privy to human ownership, the up side to owning land, water, and air is the view and privilege during good weather
***This raises the question of the government that ignores affordable and energy-efficient housing for the majority of Americans, but is enthusiastic to “make those whole” who have presumed to ownership of land, air, and water on a McMansion scale.
These thoughts raise questions and are not solutions. However one has recalled the systems of Indigenous people that generally view air, water and land as existing on a level with humanity, and therefore not to be exploited.
In contrast, capitalism even views humanity as a resource that can be privatized.
The government needs to do everything possible to help people caught in a natural disaster. But since the slate has been wiped clean, is it wise to rebuild in regions that such disasters are predictable to happen again?
Would it be healthy if such beautiful regions were left alone for the enjoyment of everyone, rather than for the enjoyment of a small number of people who elbow others out of the way?
Because principles for the US Constitution were taken from the Haudenosaunee system, one has been interested in drawing from the leadership of Native Americans.
https://americanindian.si.edu/sites/1/files/pdf/education/HaudenosauneeGuide.pdf –The Haudenosaunee Confederacy was founded on the Great Law of Peace. This law declares a basic respect for the rights of all people. The Haudenosaunee shared this belief with Benjamin Franklin, who was very interested in the structure of the Confederacy. Franklin wrote, “It would be strange if [the Haudenosaunee] could execute a union that persisted ages and appears indissoluble; yet a like union is impractical for twelve colonies to whom it is more necessary and advantageous.

Who can say seriously that the culture of most Indigenous People is not more consistent with sustainability of both people and nature? The reason to reject this type of culture seems to be greed and privilege; probably with a large dose of indoctrination.

How can anyone be wealthy unless other people are in poverty?
Some and perhaps most Indigenous people follow a type of Natural Way. As the 3 so-imagined Bible religions depend on that source to some extent, Natural Way followers are different and ancient to the extent that they are often nothing more than a punchline in Establishment thought. But Natural Way followers are genuine and must be given respect. One appreciates the Muslim concerns for separation of church and state at the same time understanding Muslims draw from the same source as do Jews and Christians. It seems vital that to maintain human rights, the separation between church and state must be honored.

Muslim Advocates unequivocally supports the rights of students and employees in public schools to pray according to their religious beliefs. Employees at public schools should not, however, be permitted to coerce—explicitly or implicitly—students to join their religious activities. That is exactly what Coach Kennedy did.
