A B Corp or a Community Contribution Corporation is mandated to be sustainable for the environment and to limit profit taking, among other things. This would be really helpful for everyone, and reign in the harmful aspects of capitalism, while preserving entrepreneurship.
Bad billionaires and millionaires lift money from their employees and suppliers, and we should not forget that all money is tied to raw materials that come from the Earth, (a delicate space habitat) no matter how special you think the innovators and entrepreneurs are.
Millions of humans and species are at risk of going extinct because of our emissions practices and so this trend must stop. By having significant fractions of the private sector, the engine of new growth, and governments taking responsibility largely for public emissions, we can begin to reverse course.
Two weeks ago I tweeted to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates, asking them to go carbon negative with their operations, and now I am calling for the same from the whole private sector and governments.
Businesses use raw materials from the Earth as they expand or grow, and must take the emissions into account up front or we will get nowhere with the trajectory of killing. The same goes for governments. In Canada I have found that no level of government has expressly taken responsibility for the public’s emissions, so the public just goes on with no means to help themselves. I am certain that the Canadian public does not want to be the cause of human and animal deaths if they don’t have to, and is willing to treat the polluted commons as a whole if possible.
The means to remove emissions for the public is available.
I have also called for angel investors in BC to go carbon negative with their portfolios. If a combined effort in this direction were taken, and all of the above was included, we would be on the right track.
Governments going carbon neutral by 2050 is sending the clear message that a vast number of deaths of humans and animals are acceptable as we hold to a high standard of living in the meantime, mollycoddling the situation as painlessly as possible. There is untold pain and suffering because of this message, arable land is being lost, and many lives with it, all because of us-the advanced nations.
It is past time for governments to deal with the public’s emissions through removal and reduction schemes that are more effective than the carbon tax and time fo businesses everywhere to go carbon negative.
Look around, local pollution IS global pollution.

Now that Charles is finally openly worried about the kind of world he is leaving to his grandkids, showing he really did not dig into the science responsibly enough 20 years ago when others were and he was fully informed, we have royal funds. Now this is supposed to become a “prestigious effort” now to satisfy the royal self mania and grandiosity. Don’t waste my time with advice to be satisfied that they finally opened their fat pockets…I have personally gone into debt to fight the climate disaster for over two decades.
The Royals realized finally that not everything was going to “stay pretty” for them as they float on their Islands of wealth in a sea of growing suffering. They had every advantage of knowledge and science that could have prompted them to prevent this disaster 20 years ago, but Charles did not fully grasp and hold on to the precautionary principle. Thus, we see that when really needed, establishment royals are useless, bloated, and complacent.
You will see that the first claim Prince William is making is that his work is the most prestigious- does that not make anyone else want to puke? Anyway, have a look at what he thinks he is going to try to do with a lot of help: https://globalnews.ca/video/6351318/prince-william-launches-prize-to-solve-earths-top-environmental-challenges
We all know that emerging solutions being funded 20 years ago would have made our predicament much better. These royals are very tardy which is being extremely generous. It really points up the fact that amassed wealth is a real detriment to the health of society – it always needs to be moving in a positive direction. So those who amass this wealth are actually hoarding valuable flow that should be directed much more aggressively back into the commons.
What we have is a class of money addicts, dragging us down.
A real solution available is at www.reductiontech.com
This article is about new emissions. The accumulated emissions we have now still warrant copious removal; see www.reductiontech.com
We are working to ready our Emergency Methane Release Arresters at ReductionTech.com in order to assist with this event.
COP 25 will either save us or indict us on the climate emergency.
It looks like we have about a 10% allowance in the system for our administrative screw up with combustion. The problem is that it certainly is no more and we can see the leading edge of our mistake now. I made this graph for the climate deniers as well as others. The idea you should get is just to see how powerful humanity is on the very limited Earth system now:
Above is the peer reviewed projection of our oxygen use but the graph does not reflect the total as the first graph does. Scientist call this a budget because it simply is what we have out there for oxygen. Note also that 10% of the atmosphere as both nitrogen and oxygen has been forced through our power operations. Let’s note that at these levels, the hydroxyl has been swamped five times over, which is exponential, and which means nature gave us a safety factor of five on this, so take note-we are done! We have to pare down-and fast!
If you want to know more about the very dangerous tipping point of the hydroxyl situation, read this:
Instead of telling ourselves that the delay found in most carbon offsets makes them a poor idea, I suggest the better strategy is to deploy all carbon offsets as soon as possible.
Right now it matters to get any downward trajectory on our emissions going, even though we would like a quicker fix. We are going to need all fixes available.
The wealthy must re-define themselves in the new reality. They must accept that a part of the accouterments of being flush with money, is their immediate liability to everyone else. Their homes, their cars, and boats, air travel are only acceptable today if they are carbon negative both presently and historically.
Let’s revisit this graph of the footprint we’re talking about:
We need to add to the sentiment and necessity here that all existing operations that the wealthy have should be taken carbon negative as soon as possible. We know that new operations throughout the world are going to fare better now that the world is waking up.
Living large and being financially successful today absolutely does inflict dangers on everyone else. we have to be honest and let this be known now.
I personally have already tweeted to Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, and asked him to take his operations and life carbon negative. I am going to ask more wealthy people to do the same.
Maybe others will join me in the communication effort so that we can minimize the unfolding fatalities and damages. These gases are invisible, but they have met with a scientific community that is successfully showing everyone how they impact the Earth System for all of us.
If the wealthy do not step up and buy up all of the carbon offsets that emerge, they are not taking care of the most important thing to them-their own interests.Tweet
I would like to ask you to voluntarily work to take your lives and your operations and your historical emissions carbon negative as soon as possible. All I am asking is that you to put in the immediate effort to save yourselves, as well as everyone you hurt with your emissions. Once you have exhausted all of the carbon offsets currently in existence, would you kindly let me know by contacting me directly or have the news media report on it widely.

We localize the removal of dangerous greenhouse gases and pollutants from your community for your successful survival.
In Amos 4:2 God swore by His holiness, all of His moral integrity, His very nature. He also swore by Himself (Amos 6:8), indicating everything that He is and His sovereignty over all creation. Israel was not impressed. So God says, “Look, I have sworn by My holiness and by Myself, and that didn’t carry any weight with you. So now I will swear by something so great—your own pride—that you can’t refuse!” What irony! God says if He swears by something of theirs, it may mean more to them than if He swears by something of His!
This passage also shows that when man gets out of step with God, then nature too begins to suffer. Beauty begins to be replaced by ugliness. We begin to see huge piles of slag, polluted rivers, foul-smelling garbage dumps, expanding deserts, and denuded forests. Finally, when the land begins to vomit the people out (Leviticus 18:24-28), they may show a belated interest in God and His truth, but it will be too late to stop the destruction. The time is right—the fruit is ripe, so God will punish them.
Consider what is currently happening in our Western nations of Israel. God shows a connection between nature and human morality; “natural” disasters are acts of God in response to the moral condition of the people. If men will treat other men, created in the image of God, in an immoral way, how will they treat the land, forests, rivers, lakes, and oceans? Because these things seemingly cannot fight back, man will abuse them with no fear of reprisal. But God says that the environment will fight back and vomit them out!
Instead of rain falling in a gentle mist, it will roar like an avalanche until the inhabitants cannot cope with it. The rivers will swell and flood the land in anger, washing the topsoil into the sea. In other areas, fire will sweep over forests and farmlands, destroying everything in its path. Windstorms like hurricanes and tornadoes will devastate the cities and countryside, endangering the lives and livelihoods of the people. Earthquakes will increase in both frequency and power, costing thousands of lives and billions of dollars of damage. These disasters will mount to such an intensity that the people of modern Israel may seek repentance, but it will be too late. God will not pass by anymore.

On October 18, 2019 I received a note from Academia.edu that there were another 800+ papers about geoengineering. This abundant innovation is now ready to be looked at by at least one authoritative, fully financed group acting for the public good. We have the IPCC but they are not mandated to short list and pay for solutions they fund developing nations initiatives. For the big technology or Earth works approaches, we need the ideas short listed in a fair way so that a proper focus is brought to the fight against climate change.
At GC Green Carbon Inc, reductiontech.com, we offer a full GHG removal technology packaged for Municipal governments that treat the air as an infrastructure item. Municipalities can remove all GHGs all at once including CO2, while improving general air quality. Since Municipalities are accounting their carbon, they can project what their emissions gap is and use our technology to meet or exceed it. Learn more about our technology at reductiontech.com . The planned pilot plant is almost fully funded.
I’m calling you All Out on the Climate Change Emergency
Engineers, Chemists, Government Regulators, Politicians, Natural Scientists, Physicists, Biologists in their majority had a huge hand in our present climate situation. Since 1905 the Vaux family was photographing lost glacier ice in North America, knowing back then that industrial effluent was the cause. Since the moment I was informed about this I have been working to fight this trend by working to find a good way to counter global warming. For ten years as a lay person, I lived in fear, having my sense of security stolen, and I know that many 50-somethings around the world will say the same thing.
The scientists and leaders I just mentioned did not convey or openly acknowledge reality for very selfish reasons. They wanted to keep their upper middle class jobs. Well, look where that got us…now we all have to down size in a rather sudden manner! All of you whom the public relied upon that held your tongues, shame on you! You really are not professionals for what you have collectively omitted with only a few exceptions.
Yes, only a small percentage actually have been brave enough to detail their findings before the peer reviewed pressure to downplay negative consequences was outstripped by people dying and losing their homes and crops. Dr. James Hansen, upon confirming the reality immediately began conveying it back in 1986. Only a few scientists can be credited in this way, however, and it certainly is NOT for a lack of evidence.
So many of the upper middle class establishment that I have mentioned have flown to the opposite hemisphere within 14 hours, and thus know how truly small and limited the planet is. This immediately should have informed them that the planet and its resources are limited, and attuning to these limits was only done openly by a fraction of you! Much credit goes to the world resource sensitive organizations which are still today teaching about the massive injustices that the developed world has inflicted upon the rest.
The pinky ring that so many professional engineers wear, along with a growing number of Chemists, remind them of inferior work and the need to have high standards. Well huge numbers of Engineers have been running the combustion systems on Earth and have not been teaching the necessary replacements! Those engineers and the pro-chemical industry Chemists severely failed society and humanity and need to be told that they failed us. You failed society. Change what you are doing and saying quickly now! Don’t participate in bad effluent practices because it is the wrong thing to do for life on Earth.
You who made a good living as a science whiz in your special area and got a government or industry job….you failed society miserably until only very recently. Make sure that you never do this again. Your reticence cost lives and property, and maybe our existence.
Poeple like me were given a tin foil hat for worrying and expressing concern over the “acceptable filth” you as regulators are allowing in society-even now! The apparent collusion between government and industry on acceptable pollution has been completely wrong, and the good contingent is slowly stepping up. Always remember your hesitations caused a huge environmental disaster and your “complicity” screwed subsequent generations. I want you to know that before you go to your graves. You had a negative impact while in your comfortable jobs! Now it’s time for you to help reverse pollution, especially government regulators. Your acceptable levels are not acceptable. It is time to reduce chemicals everywhere across the board. Get off your thumbs immediately! People should not trust you because you whom I have identified have failed us and should be stripped of your pay, professionalism and respect until you have changed the disastrous trajectory of human destiny that you caused as a group.
Fatal Flaw: No one in government is thinking that the citizen emissions need to be offset. Governments are moving to clean up internal emissions, but no one is looking at citizen emissions and unless this is done, we are in a lot of trouble when it comes to reducing emissions.
Municipal governments are being presented with the idea that the air is now a broken infrastructure, and that like road and sewers, needs to be maintained at cost. Cities are already dealing with their internal emissions reduction schemes but need to realize that the public has no direct incentive to offset their own emissions. It costs money to offset emissions and because of accumulated atmospheric GHGs we have to do it. It is unavoidable. My company ran a crowdfunding web site to see if the public would know that it has to clean up its own emissions and did not have one person fund their own offsets. This means that governments will have to step up for two reasons. The honor system for offsetting does not work, and cities need to protect their assets. It would seem that asking people to clean up their own emissions is like asking each person to look after their own water quality or their own roads- we would not want to do it for lack of real standards.
It is time for governments to realize that the air is an infrastructure, that it’s broken, which is an emergency situation, and that public funds and policy to protect it means offsetting greenhouse gases and pollution for the public. Until governments remove this bottleneck int their thinking when it comes to society, we will not be able to reliably reduce our accumulated emissions and those are the ones that are killing people locally and far away for many reasons.

The Methane Mystery
According to NASA, “what we know for sure is that a lot more methane (CH4) has made its way into the atmosphere since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.” Human activity has increased the amount of methane, similarly to carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. We know this because methane concentrations in the atmosphere have gone up ~150% since the preindustrial age. Methane has long been considered a harbinger of climate catastrophe.
Methane is known to have a greater greenhouse gas (GHG) warming factor than CO2, a potential of 34 times that of CO2 over 100 years according to the latest IPCC Assessment Report. Just to put this into perspective over several time frames the IPCC AR5, widely cited as an authority on this matter, reports that the 100-year global warming potential (GWP) of methane is 34, the 20-year GWP is 86, the 10-year is 99, and the 5-year GWP was found to be 115. Even more recent research has upped the GWP of methane somewhat additionally, by around 25%.
Even more troubling is that recently, researchers everywhere are finding that methane readings globally are going bonkers to quote those reporting on this. Others are noting a surging trend and recently, shocking data has emerged showing global atmospheric methane readings literally going off the charts (video). But is this because of anthropogenic, natural or Arctic methane sources?
It’s Time to Declare a Methane Emergency
To briefly summarize from methane by the numbers, according to Dean et al. , “anthropogenic sources are slightly larger emitters of methane to the atmosphere compared to natural sources.” These anthropogenic factors aren’t getting much attention and this threat has been significantly downplayed by mainstream media. In fact, it’s almost never mentioned.

The Hydroxyl has an added Chemistry and Physics problem with aerosol pollution. Firstly the hydroxyl is known to attach to aerosols of any size, so if they are present they are indirectly using up hydroxyl that ordinarliy could be oxidizing methane. We know that methane levels have accelerated since 2007. The physics problem we need to be aware of as well is that long wave infrared radiation escape is blocked to an GWP CO2 equivalent of 5-7 CO2e/Tonne. The global shortwave radiation dimming effect of aerosol is a net 150% stronger than this warming, so does modestly land on the cooling side. We must remember that all of the global combustion creating the aerosol cannot be justified because of its CO2, which can be removed by hydroxyl in water as the hydroxyl can serve as the carbonate buffer. We need to remove all GHGs from the air that we can ASAP.
There is a lot of criticism of carbon offsetting because users do’t clearly understand when their CO2 will be fully offset, or, it will be very slow. I encourage the offsetting market to make it very clear when the CO2 has been removed- a CO2e removal index should be adopted which reflects what we all really need- a clear sense of how fast this removal is done.
I suggest that an index of complete removal could look like This:
Offsetting Index Rating
- RT-in hours
This would empower buyers to affect the speed of offsetting along with selecting emerging economies serving the market. Combination packages may be attractive as well.
Real time technologies are still coming online. Global Thermostat and Carbon Engineering are serving with oil company backing and scaling up. Reduction Tech begins its 4 year pilot demonstration in 2020. We need real time technologies that can also start addressing the historical backlog of emissions while reducing the present net GHG output. remember, the biggest single contribution westerners make to CO2 levels is their vehicle, so try not to drive alone in the vehicle and plan your outings very carefully to reduce emissions. Remember- if we don’t use the honor system effectively we may have to ration fossil fuel to get better control of our survival!

No carbon budget means that we all technically should stop emitting. How are you going to handle this from a moral perspective. Are you going to find ways to offset your carbon.
This is the warming that is already baked in as of this projection in 2007, which is still accurate.
Our global purpose here really must be to exist on Earth without damaging the key aspects of it that support our life. We have fundamentally failed at this point, and need to correct our management approaches around our physical survival infrastructure. All the finer things in life mean nothing if we are living in chaos, visiting starvation and drought on others through our selfish consumption of material excess represented by the excessive use of carbon products. The wealthy who engage in carbon intensive businesses must be targeted with this knowledge and pressure to change the most. Look at this graphic of how they personally abuse carbon. It should be criminalized: Their businesses and investments must shift off of carbon immediately as well. These are facts not accusations;
Among other concepts, Dr. Tim Garret suggests that Marine Cloud brightening may have a major flaw as a partial solution…
We reached over 60% of peak oil, which was responsible for the population explosion, and now we will fall back, by starvation, to about the richest and best placed 3 billion of us. In order to continue, we will need to have avoided a temperature tipping point of 3C.
For us to succeed, we must remove all GHGs as soon as possible through removal and destruction. We offer hydroxyl radicals as a key method. CO2 sucking and methane sucking is far less efficient but we are now in a desperate situation and may require these regardless.
Do we all care that over half of us are going to die before we stabilize with a completely different resource management system than what we have now. We do not have time to.

All aspects of the climate are going to get worse and be spurred on further by pending negative feedbacks until we have removed enough greenhouse gas to reverse the warming physics. The aerosol masking effect does nothing to actually solve the 150 year old problem of melting glaciers. If we don’t solve the greenhouse gas problem soon, we will reach one or more tipping points that will be exponentially harder to correct.
Aggressively investing in negative emissions technologies, as well as aggressive emission reduction are our only hope. If we are forced to use aerosol spraying, it will likely be because we reached a tipping point that put us into extreme emergency mode, and we may not be capable of sustaining it.

This is one major avenue for greenhouse gas removal. All options should be on the table now, and it’s time for real leadership action.
It’s past time to scale up greenhouse gas removal systems.
It’s only a matter of time with this June 2019 being the hottest in recorded history, that the forensic reality of CO2 pollution is internalized by everyone as the endangering fact it is. The facts will remove your biases for you as this progresses.
Here’s the impact of burning all fossil fuels:
Read a little about that tipping point here;
This shows that natural background hydroxyl is in a 24-hour time adjusted period. at 0.5 PPM, and the Gross deficit is 3.28 PPM. This 5+ fold deficit is behind the non-linear build up of pollutants including GHGs. If we don’t rectify this with technology assistance, we are headed for well over 3’C warming.
The truth is, our leaders know what they have to do. Thank you, Greta, for this brilliant speech.

Let’s get the heat out!
Everything on Earth is monetized which means that a resource from the earth is tied to that money; there fore, wealth hoarding is a form of gouging the resources of the earth. When spent, that money again draws more resources from the earth and system, thus, when we encourage expenditures, regenerative projects which increase resources should be the key priority. Wasteful conveniences need to be phased out as society stabilizes at its zenith, or fails.
We do not have to remove wealth, but auditable ceilings on it should be considered properly tied to the Earth’s resources, especially notable is the carbon footprint. Government needs to be at least as awake to this need as consumers are, and put policy in place that ties wealth to the environment, and quantifies its risks to the environment so that there is compliance to a phase down and phase out of these excessive profit models and large holdings. This can be achieved democratically and through both education, taxation, lending, sustainability in manufacturing, regenerative economics.
Who feels wealthy anyway, on a faltering planet, where our movements and purchases are hurting the environment? Being fabulously wealthy while not increasing resources overall is not just a moral issue now- it is a sociopath’s life of crime and deserves to be mitigated and if necessary, democratically punished. Moderation and regulation in the area of profit ceilings is quite overdue.
