- One: Global warming disaster could suffocate life on planet Earth, research shows a press release from the University of Leicester (UK) on ‘Mathematical Modelling of Plankton–Oxygen Dynamics Under the Climate Change’ published in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology by Yadigar Sekerci and Sergei Petrovskii. There is a link for the abstract and article on the press release (Published 12-1-2015). This link provided the ultimate problem to be solved, obviously.
- Two: Three reasons why the Paris climate deal is a fraud by Jerome Roos at Roar Magazine on 12-14-2015. I would not call it a fraud, per se, but the problems with it outlined are very real, and grave. Among the problems is that only $100 billion was 'promised' by fully industrialized countries to aid the developing world in investing in sustainability and resilience boosting projects, against $5.3 trillion in annual energy subsidy (roughly 90% for fossil fuel use, see next item). Still, individuals, communities, small businesses, local governments, NGOs et al do have power and can use it.
- Fossil Fuel Subsidies Cost $5 Trillion Annually and Worsen Pollution: The International Monetary Fund notes that subsides for burning fossil fuels enrich the wealthy and make air pollution worse republished by Scientific American, by Daniel Cusick, ClimateWire on May 19, 2015. Speaks pretty well for itself.
The creation of this website was inspired by three articles:
I used my Discordian Postcard Conspiracy mail art / mail poems project partly in support of building awareness of these issues in some of its phases. The postcard design I made and used is shown below.
I've included the URL on all the postcards written in 2018, comprising about 80 independent bookstores and 12-24 professors at each of 5 schools.
There is more information on the Discordian Postcard Conspiracy at Psychic Fugue Studio and Poetic Postcards. I think I took delivery of the postcards in November 2015 and didn't send the first ones until perhaps later in December (the top article above was published on 12-1-2015), so that was not how the project was conceived.
