Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35
So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Coal, Steam, and The Industrial Revolution: Crash Course World History #32
Mongols Shirts and Crash Course Posters! http://store.dftba.com/collections/crashcourse In which John Green wraps up revolutions month with what is arguably the most revolutionary of modern revolutions, the Industrial Revolution. While very few leaders were beheaded in the course of this one, it changed the lives of more people more dramatically than any of the political revolutions we've discussed. So, why did the Industrial Revolution happen around 1750 in the United Kingdom? Coal. Easily accessible coal, it turns out. All this, plus you'll finally learn the difference between James Watt and Thomas Newcomen, and will never again be caught telling people that your blender has a 900 Newcomen motor.

What is PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY? What does PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY mean? PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY meaning - PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY definition - PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Progressive Utilization Theory, also known by the acronym PROUT, is a collection of socioeconomic and political ideas propounded by Indian philosopher and spiritual leader Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar. Considered an integral part of his spiritual philosophy, Sarkar formulated the theory of his Ananda Marga movement in 1959 and summarized it in the fifth chapter of his book Ananda Sutram. According to a description by Terry Irving and Rowan Cahill, PROUT "envisages a decentralized, community-based world economy of self-sufficiency for the poor; economic democracy; small business; and limits on the accumulation of wealth." Sohail Inayatullah stated that the philosophy "attempts to balance the need for societies to create wealth and grow with the requirements for distribution." David Skrbina characterized PROUT as a "model of social development... which advocates a 'small is beautiful' approach to society." Economics instructor Mark Friedman places Sarkar's economic thought in the tradition of Monsignor John A. Ryan, E.F. Schumacher and Herman Daly in Sarkar's incorporation of spiritual values into economic goals. Sarkar positioned it as an alternative to communism and capitalism. It has been characterized as a form of "progressive socialism" as well as a "socialist theory". PROUT recognizes all material goods as common property and seeks the rational and equitable distribution of that property to maximize the physical, mental, and spiritual development of all people. It seeks to guarantee what it recognizes as the five minimum requirements of life for human beings: food, clothing, shelter, education, and medical care. PROUT describes a social order consisting of four classes of people that cyclically dominate society: shudras (labourers), kshatriyas (military–minded individuals), vipra (intellectuals) and vaishyas (capitalists). To prevent any social class from clinging to political power and exploiting the others, he proposed the concept of "spiritual elite" sadvipras (etymologically sad – true, vipra – intellectual) who would determine who held political leadership. Sarkar thought that the first sadvipras would be created from disgruntled middle class intellectuals and military-minded people. He called for sadvipras to be organized into executive, legislative, and judicial boards which would be governed by a Supreme Board. They, according to Sarkar, would be responsible for the application of force necessary to change the order of dominance within the social order, with large amounts of force akin to revolution. PROUT's economic model advocates a three-tiered approach to industrial organization where key industries or public utilities are non–profit, a decentralized industry run by sociolinguistic unions provide people's bare minimum necessities, and most of the economic transactions are through producers' and consumers' cooperatives. It distinguishes itself from communism by proposing an incentive based economy where surplus in the society is distributed to people who serve the society. At the political level, PROUT rejects nationalism and seeks the formation of a world government. Sarkar also supported the concept of a world army. Cooperative communities have been established by Ananda Marga in an attempt to provide ideal models for the society outlined in PROUT. A few intellectuals support the philosophy, but it has not achieved widespread implementation. Professor Narasingha P. Sil describes Sarkar's ideas of the social cycles that underlie PROUT as having "little originality or historical validity", having been derived "with some feeble adjustments" from traditional Hindu caste structure. Ravi Batra used the ideas of PROUT in his bestseller The Great Depression of 1990 and other books. In reviewing the book for the Los Angeles Times, economist Paul Erdman described the work as "a strange mixture of voodoo historical theories and sound economic analysis".

Climate Change: What Do Scientists Say?
Climate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities...but what do scientists say about climate change? Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm? Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world's leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change.

I’ve published more than 200 scientific papers. For 30 years I taught at MIT, during which time the climate has changed remarkably little. But the cry of “global warming” has grown ever more shrill. In fact, it seems that the less the climate changes, the louder the voices of the climate alarmists get. So, let’s clear the air and create a more accurate picture of where we really stand on the issue of global warming or, as it is now called—“climate change.” There are basically three groups of people dealing with this issue. Groups one and two are scientists. Group three consists mostly, at its core, of politicians, environmentalists and the media. Group one is associated with the scientific part of the United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change or IPCC (Working Group 1). These are scientists who mostly believe that recent climate change is primarily due to man’s burning of fossil fuels—oil, coal and natural gas. This releases C02, carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere and, they believe, this might eventually dangerously heat the planet. Group two is made up of scientists who don’t see this as an especially serious problem. This is the group I belong to. We’re usually referred to as skeptics. We note that there are many reasons why the climate changes—the sun, clouds, oceans, the orbital variations of the earth, as well as a myriad of other inputs. None of these is fully understood, and there is no evidence that CO2 emissions are the dominant factor. But actually there is much agreement between both groups of scientists. The following are such points of agreement: 1) The climate is always changing. 2) CO2 is a greenhouse gas without which life on earth is not possible, but adding it to the atmosphere should lead to some warming. 3) Atmospheric levels of CO2 have been increasing since the end of the Little Ice Age in the 19th century. 4) Over this period (the past two centuries), the global mean temperature has increased slightly and erratically by about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit or one degree Celsius; but only since the 1960’s have man’s greenhouse emissions been sufficient to play a role. 5) Given the complexity of climate, no confident prediction about future global mean temperature or its impact can be made. The IPCC acknowledged in its own 2007 report that “The long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/climate-change-what-do-scientists-say

Progressive Governance Summit of 15 world leaders
(28 Mar 2009) Pool 1. Wide of Progressive Governance Conference seminar 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gordon Brown, British Prime Minister: "We cannot have an International Monetary Fund that simply deals with balance of payments, crisis in individual countries. That was the old world. We need an international institution, a new International Monetary Fund that can deal with global and not local competition, international flows of capital, not just natural flows of capital and global open economies and not just the sheltered economies of the past. So we must reform the International Monetary Fund. We must have an institution that can deal with the problems of the environment" 3. Wide of seminar 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gordon Brown, British Prime Minister: "Then we've got to reshape the world of security. I believe it is possible, in the next few months, for us to resist the pressure for proliferation of nuclear weapons, while at the same time, the nuclear powers reducing their weapons and achieving a level of multilateral disarmament that I believe is possible with the leadership of America and other countries over the next period of time." 5. Wide of audience and delegates applauding 6. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Michele Bachelet, Chilean President: "We should deeply reform the International Monetary Fund to give it the tools and the necessary resources to face the crisis, but also to give it the necessary legitimacy. We should provide a massive injection to development banks, especially the regional banks, such as the Inter-American Development Bank or the African Development Bank." 7.

Brown was speaking at a seminar in the Chilean city of Vina del Mar, ahead of Saturday's Progressive Governance Summit. Brown said existing institutions and agencies such as the IMF were created in the 1940s and do not respond to current needs. His comments were echoed by summit host Chilean President Michele Bachelet who said reform is needed to give the IMF the tools "to face the crisis, but also to give it the necessary legitimacy." In a wide ranging speech Brown also commented on global security, urging the US to provide leadership on encouraging "multilateral disarmament" while avoiding further nuclear proliferation in a time of great international tension and uncertainty. Following the seminar, Bachelet hosted the official banquet ahead of the beginning of the summit of leaders from Latin America and Europe.. Brown, Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, US Vice President Joseph Biden and Brazilian President Lula da Silva all attended the lavish dinner. Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero is expected to arrive in the Chilean resort city early Saturday for the summit.

The Gary Null Show - 11.14.18
Source: https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-826jd-9f283f Global Warming: We’re Screwed Global Warming: We’re Screwed by Gary Null, PhD. and Richard Gale, edited by Helen Buyniski There is no longer any question that climate change and global warming are bearing down upon us more aggressively and rapidly than previously believed. It is wishful thinking to cling to fantasies that life will return to normal. Reports on approaching climate change tipping points become direr. It is no longer a question whether climate change is occurring. Instead, we should prepare ourselves for what can be done in our own lives and communities and learn to adapt to the new abnormal that has never been experienced since homo sapiens appeared during the Middle Paleolithic period 200,000 years ago. Since 1972, we have been warned about the impasse we are now reaching. Forty-six years ago, the Club of Rome commissioned a consortium of scientists, legislators, corporate leaders and economists to create the now famous Limits of Growth report. That report predicted a systemic collapse of human civilization due to obscene economic growth and the depletion of essential natural resources. But leaders throughout the developed world flatly denied its conclusions. It should therefore be evident that believing our world’s leaders will act in unison to lessen climate change’s forward advance is both idealistic and impractical. While there is a 97 percent consensus among scientists globally that planetary warming is human-generated, only 15 percent of Americans, according to a Yale and George Mason University survey, know and understand this fact. The Trump administration and the remainder of the American population continue to embrace the fallacy that the scientific community is divided on the matter. We now have the most anti-rational government in US history, one which categorically refuses to grasp the larger picture and instead chooses to assail the environment to leverage short term gains and profits. Clearly the message is not being communicated, and this leaves millions of citizens in harm’s way as climate change worsens. We can identify several different attitudes about humanity’s ability to tackle the accelerating challenges of climate change and global warming. The question I pose is whether it is possible or reasonable to hold two seemingly diametrically opposed positions simultaneously. I believe it is. One view holds that technology will save us – full stop. Such a utopian outlook is ultimately paralyzing because of the massive sums of money required to implement the new world-saving technologies. Some regions can benefit, of course – ultra-wealthy Gulf states like Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, for example, can afford to build the fantastically expensive desalination plants that are required to turn desert expanses into arable land. But at $100 million apiece, these plants are firmly out of reach of 99 percent of the planet’s population. Other nations must therefore set their sights dramatically lower, and here the gap between what is needed and what technology is capable of becomes problematic. Some environmental groups insist we merely need more wind and solar energy, in spite of the high costs of building wind farms, their comparatively paltry energy output, and their numerous downsides – bird deaths, unlivable noise. Hydroelectric dams are a much more economically-sound model for alternative energy, but the existence of a nearby river is obviously a prerequisite. Some groups have even embraced nuclear power, claiming it is non-polluting. They ignore, forget, or disingenuously avoid discussing how enriching uranium creates tons of pollution, how there is no safe disposal process for the spent fuel rods that will remain radioactive for eons, how nuclear power plants are prone to accidents and meltdowns – particularly as catastrophic climate events become more frequent, as Fukushima continues to remind us. For the techno-utopian set, there will always be some brilliant inventor who will sweep in at the critical hour and save us from ourselves. The solutions are always just beyond our fingertips, and we are supposed to merely prepare for the arrival of our techno-saviors by thinking positively about the future. The leaders of this school of thought are the masters of positive platitudes, and nothing – not facts, science, or cold hard reality – will intrude upon their fantasy. David Korten, writing for Yes! Magazine, asks us to believe that it is within modern civilization’s power to wake up and make the critical changes necessary to either lessen the impact of climate change or reverse its course. Korten is not alone, and I suspect most climate scientists and environmentalists agree with him. Thousands of scientists convene at climate conferences around the world to discuss their conviction that our political leaders and institutions will arrive at a moment of clarity just in time to launch

By farming organically, she works with nature to grow good food in healthy soil rather than using chemicals that harm it. This is Pavel. He might look like a regular guy, but he’s a Guardian of Biodiversity. He knows that healthy fields should be teeming with life, from birds and bees to ladybirds and earthworms. So, he doesn’t use toxic pesticides which harm wildlife and drive them from their natural habitat. That’s why organic farms are home to 30% more species than conventional farms. Here’s Maria. She’s a Defender of the Earth! Beyond the field, nitrogen runoff from chemical fertilizers is also contaminating oceans, rivers, and lakes. It is killing fish and other aquatic life. By using compost wisely and avoiding nitrogen surplus, Maria is defending the earth’s water resources, keeping them safe for fish to live in and for us to drink from. By farming sustainably, these superheroes, together with thousands of others are keeping our plates full of good food, our wildlife safe and the planet healthy. “Let’s celebrate our superheroes! Farmers who farm sustainably, working with nature, not against it.”
Global Conference 2014 - Focus 6 - Nuclear and shale hydrocarbons
Focus 6 -- «Nuclear and shale hydrocarbons: what part of uncertainty can we accept » Three years after the disaster that struck Japan, the situation has not been solved in the Fukushima power plant, reminding us strongly the risks linked to a nuclear accident. Despite the ambitions shown by certain governments to implement an energy transition in order to favor a progressive nuclear phase-out and diminish their reliance to fossil fuels, things are changing very slowly. At the same time, the shale oil revolution leads some States to look closer at this fossil resource, which extraction techniques are highly contested and which costs are not totally mastered. Inventing a new social project implies rethinking our relation to natural resources and transforming our energy supply and consumption models. As zero risk does not exist, how much uncertainty can we accept in elaborating these new energy models?

Book Club: Warrior IS - by Harley L. Zephier and Robin L. Zephier
The Greasy Grass Battle aka the Little Bighorn Battle on June 25, 1876 was an epic encounter and clash of cultures.The experience and display of warrior spirit resulted in the defeat of the Seventh Cavalry and Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer. The world has searched for the answers to the questions of “why”, “how” and “who else” was also on the hill known as Last Stand Hill. Our book WARRIOR IS provides the answers to these questions. The coming battle ignites global interest and intrigue, to become a lasting inspiration for books, historical documentation, and speculation.Hundreds of thousands of people from across the world will visit the site of the conflict. Tunkasila (Grandfather) was born in 1849 in He Sapa (the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota).His name is Mato Niyanpi (Saved By Bear), his culture is Mnincoju of the Lakota Nation. The origin of the Lakota begins with Wind Cave in He Sapa.It is here, where we left the Spirit world and entered the physical world of existence.We are Earth woman and Earth man in her honor, the keepers of the land.Co-existence with all life is Creator's asking.We believe in the hoop, or Circle of Life.All of Creator's beings are needed, and contribute to life on Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth).Our lands were pristine and pure, offering abundant sustenance.Reverence and respect were practiced by the human.A civilization with proven tradition and culture emerged. Tradition is the foundation of Lakota society.Mato Niyanpi would learn and grow with these teachings in body, mind, and spirit, thus becoming a member of certain warrior societies.He was a man connected to the Wakinyan (Thunder Beings), supported by ritual, medicine, and ceremony.Tunkasila chose his path in life, to walk with prayer and belief.Mato Niyanpi carried his Cannumpa (pipe) for peace and creation. A dark cloud would come over the Lakota Nation.The United States Government was preparing to remove the indigenous from their land.The judicial, executive, and legislative processes against the people began.Greed, profit, and possession of natural resources takes center stage politically.The government approach was executed with treaties.Negotiations between only selected tribal leaders, military, and designated officials ensued.The treaties were pieces of paper which were full of lies, deception, corruption, and were always broken.There was no benefit in their signing to the Lakota, or other tribal Nations. Gold was found in the Black Hills.This fueled a very emotionally charged Washington D.C.Drastic measures were proposed and approved, the final decision being genocide.The implementation of genocidal practice would threaten the very existence of the Lakota Nation.It would be recognizable in every part of their lives.Freedom of movement, subsistence, and most importantly, their prayer to Unci Maka, were being destroyed. The atrocities suffered by our relatives during this time frame were unimaginable.Confinement to reservations and agencies which were essentially prison camps; where starvation, disease, inhumane personal violations, torture, murder, and massacre were methods of deprivation.In defense, the Lakota and a number of related Tribal Nations would come together as one.Warriors talked, prayed, and decided to go to battle. Mato Niyanpi is called upon by his relatives, and Creator, to perform an act of commitment and courage.Tunkasila has a face-to-face confrontation with Custer on Last Stand Hill.Mato Niyanpi is the proud Lakota warrior who killed Lt. Col. George A. Custer.In the taking of his human presence from Unci Maka, Mato Niyanpi became, and continues to be, the Spirit Keeper of Custer.Creator called this union for our future together as human beings, living in peace, unity, tolerance and love SUPPORT THE PROGRAM ► Join us on Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/thomhartmann where you can also watch a re-run of the three hour program at any time AUDIO PODCASTS ► Subscribe today: http://www.thomhartmann.com/podcast FOLLOW THOM ► AMAZON : http://amzn.to/2hS4UwY ► BLOG : http://www.thomhartmann.com/thom/blog ► FACEBOOK : http://www.facebook.com/ThomHartmannProgram/ ► INSTAGRAM : http://www.instagram.com/Thom_Hartmann ► PATREON : http://www.patreon.com/thomhartmann ► TWITTER : http://www.twitter.com/thom_hartmann ► WEBSITE : http://www.thomhartmann.com ► YOUTUBE : http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thomhartmann ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Thom Hartmann Program is the leading progressive political talk radio show for political news and comment about Government politics, be it Liberal or Conservative, plus special guests and callers ✔ Amazon links are affiliate links

Is the world getting better or worse? A look at the numbers | Steven Pinker
Was 2017 really the "worst year ever," as some would have us believe? In his analysis of recent data on homicide, war, poverty, pollution and more, psychologist Steven Pinker finds that we're doing better now in every one of them when compared with 30 years ago. But progress isn't inevitable, and it doesn't mean everything gets better for everyone all the time, Pinker says. Instead, progress is problem-solving, and we should look at things like climate change and nuclear war as problems to be solved, not apocalypses in waiting. "We will never have a perfect world, and it would be dangerous to seek one," he says. "But there's no limit to the betterments we can attain if we continue to apply knowledge to enhance human flourishing."

Footing the Bill: Art and Our Ecological Footprint
Art Works for Change invites you to enjoy “Footing the Bill: Art and Our Ecological Footprint,” a digital exhibition addressing the urgent need to live sustainably within the Earth’s finite resources. Each artist in the exhibition presents a unique visual story that explores our delicate relationship with the natural world and the collective need to live within the means of one Earth. The exhibition has been created in partnership with leading environmental organizations, including Earth Day Network, Global Footprint Network, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Oceana, and others. These partner organizations have contributed to virtual "tours" that feature their global perspective on issues of sustainability and conservation. Each artwork in the online exhibition is paired with a series of pledges, actions that individuals can take in their own lives to reduce their environmental impact. Visitors who adopt one or more pledges will be able to share them, along with an image of the artwork that inspired them, with their social networks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+. The exhibition is associated with the hashtags #EndOvershoot and #OneEarth.

Belize's challenge to balance environment and economy
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Belize is known throughout Central America for its progressive environmental conservation programmes, but with few exports, the small nation's economy also depends heavily on tourism. And the large volume of tourists many drawn to the world's second largest barrier reef that is home to a huge variety of marine life has some experts worried that potentially irreversible harm is being done to the country's treasured environment.

The Future of Worldwide Income Distribution
The debate about income distribution has focused on the trend of rising inequality in the United States and other advanced economies. Worldwide, however, income distribution is becoming more equal. This video presents new evidence derived from surveys of households worldwide, which projects equality to improve further in the next 20 years. The main factor in that trend is strong growth raising hundreds of millions of people from poverty to the middle class or to affluence in China, India, sub-Saharan Africa, and other parts of the developing world. The reduction in global inequality will reshape the size and location of global consumption of goods and services. Unprecedented opportunities for businesses and investors lie ahead. But there will also be challenges posed by rising pressures on infrastructure, natural resources, the environment, and the global climate. This video is part of an effort by the Peterson Institute for International Economics to use different means for dissemination of economic data and analysis to the broad public on important issues and challenges.

Gifford Pinchot Bridging Environmental and Labor in the Early 20th Century
Gifford Pinchot, America's first professionally trained forester rose to national prominence as a conservationist and political progressive under the patronage of President Theodore Roosevelt. He likely would have support the current movements uniting working people and their unions and environmentalists in building the new, green economy. Transforming the economy through renewable energy, energy efficiency, mass transit and rail, a new smart grid and other solutions to global warming, has the potential to create millions of jobs, while reducing global warming emissions. Pinchot was elected twice as Republican governor of Pennsylvania. As a politician he fought for wiser use of natural resources and for fuller justice for the average citizen. In 1922 Pinchot campaigned for governor of Pennsylvania and won a close election. The miners of anthracite coal struck twice during his first term of office. The first strike, in 1923, lasted only a week due to Pinchot's decisive arbitration. The strike of 1925 continued for six months and again Pinchot's forceful mediation was necessary. Pinchot called both sides for daily meetings, finally achieving a compromise. Because Pennsylvania governors were then prohibited from successive terms, Pinchot ran again for the Senate and lost. But in 1931, he began his second term as Pennsylvania's governor during the depression years. He successfully pressed for large reductions in utility rates and built twenty thousand miles of paved rural roads to "get the farmer out of the mud." Realizing that State aid would not be sufficient to curb the effects of the Depression, he was one of the first of the governors to decide that federal aid was needed. In 1933, the bituminous coal miners at U.S. Steel's "captive mines" struck. The mine owners refused to recognize the United Mine Workers union, despite federal law requiring collective bargaining. Pressure exerted by Pinchot and President Franklin D. Roosevelt caused the company to recognize the union. During his last year as governor, Pinchot ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for election to the U.S. Senate. As usual, he received little assistance from the leaders of his party, whom he had greatly annoyed by supporting the economic recovery programs of Democrat Franklin Roosevelt.

[Public Lecture] Democracy by Bhutan Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay
The way parliamentary democracy was introduced in Bhutan is unprecedented in the history. It did not come about through demands of the population. It was thrust on to the people from the Throne by a beloved Monarch who believed that Parliamentary Democracy was the best form of governance for Bhutan even though Monarchy has ensured not only Bhutan’s survival as an independent nation through tumultuous global events but its flourishment as a peaceful and progressive country. In this talk, Bhutan Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay recounts the country’s transition from Monarchy to Parliamentary Democracy; the visionary leadership of the Great Fourth King of Bhutan who initiated the decentralization and democratization processes that ultimately led to the introduction of Parliamentary Democracy in Bhutan in 2008; the leadership of His Majesty the Fifth King of Bhutan in ensuring the success of democracy in Bhutan; and, Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay’s own journey in the public life. Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay left a senior position in the civil service to heed the call to public life amidst great reluctance of the general population to take part in the democratic process. He led a two-member strong opposition in Bhutan’s parliament after the first elections in Bhutan. As the Prime Minister, he now leads the country’s second democratically elected government. Watch the Q&A session here: https://youtu.be/MwMg73IaLeg ================================================ Tshering Tobgay is a Bhutanese politician who has been Prime Minister of Bhutan since 2013. He is also leader of the People’s Democratic Party and was Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly from March 2008 to April 2013. Tobgay co-founded the People’s Democratic Party and was responsible for establishing the Party as Bhutan’s first registered political party. Prior to politics, Tobgay was a civil servant, beginning his career in 1991 with the Technical and Vocational Education Section under the Department of Education. In 1998 he established and headed the National Technical Training Authority and served as a director in the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources from 2003 to 2007. ================================================ Visit us Website: http://lkyspp.nus.edu.sg Follow us on Facebook: http://facebook.com/nuslkyspp Twitter: http://twitter.com/lkysch LinkedIn University Page: https://www.linkedin.com/edu/school?id=42060

This year’s We Are Africa was our biggest yet, and the profile of the FUSE keynote speaker reflected not just the growing stature of the event but also the priorities of an increasingly eco-conscious high-end travel industry. Since becoming Botswana’s Minister of Environment, Natural Resources, Conservation and Tourism, Tshekedi Khama’s passion for sustainable tourism and the preservation of his country’s heritage have driven global recognition of his inspiring agenda. From spearheading a hunting ban and anti-poaching initiatives to encouraging local involvement in Botswana’s tourism industry, his passion for conservation is evident in everything he does: and his roof-raising FUSE 2018 keynote speech was no exception.

Population Growth, Resource Consumption, and Political Unrest- part 2
Part 2: discussion. Kelvin Thomson is Member of Wills, Federal Parliament of Australia. This presentation is part of the panel "A Progressive Approach to Immigration Reform: US Immigration Policy and its Impact on Conservation and Labor", which was held on October 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. Kelvin Thomson discusses immigration and population growth's global impact on rising food prices, increased demand for grain and petroleum, and population's direct impact on social unrest. Recent findings demonstrate how rapid population growth fuels political instability. Thomson discusses the situation in countries such as Tunisia, Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana, where too many people competing for scarce available resources ultimately lead to social conflict. In many developed countries, high immigration has lead to higher unemployment rates and civil unrest. Thomson explains how policy makers should focus on policies to slow migration to solve social problems. ______________ Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is to educate the public concerning the unintended consequences of large-scale immigration and to promote policies to address them.

Alan Watt - Exposing Mikhail Gorbachev
More revealing quotes below: "The State of the World Forum will focus on the fundamental challenges and opportunities as we enter the next phase of human development. It is being held in the belief that at this momentous juncture in history, we are giving birth to the first global civilization." Mission Statement from "The State of the World Forum" sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation, located at the Presidio in San Francisco attended by among others George W H Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner and Bill Gates. (1995) "The environmental crisis is the cornerstone of the new world order." Mikhail Gorbachev, speaking at a World Government planning session held at the State of the World Forum at the Presidio, in San Francisco hinting that that Globalists would use the so-called environmental crisis as a platform to argue in favour of a world government, which they claim is essential to solve the crisis. Environmentalism and its associated false science of "greenhouse effect," "global warming" "climate change" etc are used to confuse and delude people into believing a catastrophic event lies in the near future because of rampaging humanity and uncontrolled use of natural resources. This is great lie. Environmentalism is part of the socialist move for World Empire and is thus a mechanism of control and regulation .... It is all about control ... control of everyone everywhere from the cradle to the grave (1995) "..The precondition for eventual and genuine globalization is progressive regionalization because by that we move towards larger, more stable, more cooperative units." Zigbniew Brzezinski, speaking at the Gorbachev Conference, (1995) "We need a new paradigm of development, in which the environment will be priority ... World civilization as we know it will soon end... We have very little time and we must act ... the need for sustainable development ... and the need for global environmental security [which is only possible if we] change our mindset - the way humankind views the world .... If we can address the environment problem, we have hope ... but it will have to be done within a new system, a new paradigm ...[but it is imperative for us to] change our current values [and to] join forces [with others around the world] since environmental problems are of a global nature .... By the year 2002 we will be presenting, the final draft of the Earth Charter! ... The main work is still ahead of us [moreover] the United States can play an important role in helping to establish the New International Order." Mikhail Gorbachev, former dictator of Russia and "radical environmentalist," speaking at the Clowes Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana. (1996) "Cosmos is my God; Nature is my God," Mikhail Gorbachev: Former Soviet dictator is the archetypal "watermelon Marxist" -- green on the outside, Red, very, very Red on the inside. His declaration to Charlie Rose in a PBS television interview (1996) "My hope is that this charter will be a kind of Ten Commandments, a 'Sermon on the Mount,' that provides a guide for human behavior toward the environment in the next century and beyond." Mikhail Gorbachev: former dictator of the Soviet Empire and KGB bigwig in an interview with the LA Times regarding the Earth Charter, the New Age inspired document that will be used to bring about a Global Empire founded on tyranny (1997) Quotes from: http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/1985-89.html http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/1990-94.html http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/1995-99.html http://www.livinglifefully.com/flo/flocallfornewvalues.htm

Toxic Coal Ash Being Dumped in Puerto Rico, Which Already Suffers Worst Drinking Water in the Nation
https://democracynow.org - Even before Hurricane Maria struck the island nearly six months ago, the majority of Puerto Rico’s residents lived with water that violated health standards set by the U.S. law. Since the storm, residents say the situation has only gotten worse. Among the sources of potential water contamination are mountains of coal ash generated by a coal-fired power plant owned by a private company called AES. For years, residents have demanded the company stop dumping toxic coal ash into their community, saying the waste is poisonous to their health and the environment. We speak with Mekela Panditharatne, a lawyer with the Natural Resources Defense Council who just returned from the island and wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post headlined ”FEMA says most of Puerto Rico has potable water.

Dr  Phil Lawn on the three sectors of real resources
Dr. Phil Lawn, senior lecturer of ecological economics of Flinders University explains that real resources are divided into three sectors: primary (agriculture and mining), secondary (manufacturing) and tertiary (services). Many economists wrongly believe that mature, developed economies are based solely on the strength of the tertiary resource sector, or the amount of services produced. Dr. Lawn believes that a truly sound economy should be based on the strength of all three sectors. He goes on to mention that Japan has strong secondary and tertiary sectors but a weak primary sector, as it is heavily reliant on natural resource imports. A nation like Greece has only a weak tertiary sector, and virtually no primary or secondary sectors where as a nation like Australia has strong primary and tertiary sectors but a weak secondary sector. Because they both have strong primary sectors, Australia and Canada were able to avoid the worst of the global financial crisis due to them being able to export their natural resources to other countries. However, because Australia has a weak secondary sector, its economy isn’t booming either.

Stig L. Andersson, “After Nature”
We live in the Anthropocene Era where the world’s ecosystems and geological processes have been profoundly altered by human activities. It is a state where the nature that was here before us, has irreversibly changed into a nature that has its form and expression, as a result of our way of consuming natural resources. We have interfered in nature’s processes so that they are no longer the nature we once knew. Our nature is a new nature; a nature that we are the co-creators of. In this condition, what is the role and the meaning of landscape architecture? For one, the traditional distinction between nature and culture can no longer be preserved. What is needed is a new approach to landscape architecture, where landscape architecture is that which can bring a new order into our built environment; which can establish the grown environment as equal and complementary to the built environment; and which can reestablish our aesthetic sense of nature and make us aware that nature is not a threat we must fight against, but the central aspect of what creates a fully livable community. That we have to model our new world After Nature. Stig L. Andersson founded SLA Architects in 1994. Having studied nuclear physics, Japanese culture and chemistry before becoming an architect, Andersson graduated from The Royal Danish School of Architecture in 1986. From 1986-1989 Andersson moved to Japan with Japanese ministerial research funds. Andersson was particularly interested in Japanese culture’s relationship with substance, space and changeability – fields he has integrated and developed in his own practice since 1994. Stig L. Andersson is SLA’s founding partner.

No Scientific Way to Explain Creation - John MacArthur The Theology of Creation
"Get past the idea that science makes any contribution to an understanding of creation, it makes none. Now this may shock you, there is no such thing as the science of creation. There is no such thing. It does not exist. Why? Because there is no scientific way to explain creation. It was not a natural event."

Venezuela Speaks - August 2015
Helena Menéndez, press secretary of the Venezuelan Embassy, delivers a message to Progressive British workers at CPGB-ML's international BBQ, held at Saklatvala Hall in Southall, west London, on Saturday 25 July. She outlines the history of the last 15 years of struggle in Venezuela, who's basic meaning has been to use the vast wealth of Venezuela to improve the lives of the Venezuelan people. _____________________________________________________ Donate to help us produce higher-quality videos! https://www.gofundme.com/cpgbml _____________________________________________________ This is precisely why the progressive Venezuelan government has fallen foul of US imperialism, who's former president James Monroe openly declared his doctrine that European powers had no business in the Americas - for they were now the colonial possession of the USA. For almost 200 years this 'principle' has guided US policy, being re-asserted by the entire US establishment, including presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. Interestingly, Kerry mouthed a formal renunciation of the Monroe doctrine at the OAS in 2013, but it is absolutely clear from his speech, and from the ongoing actions of the US, throughout the Americas, that this was just a piece of 'soft power' window dressing, and that the USA has not changed its desire to enforce its status as regional (and indeed world) hegemon. As proof of this we need look no further than Venezuela, which is being subject to a relentless series of attacks designed to destabilise the progressive government. These economic attacks include, inter alia, hoarding of consumer goods to cause shortages and price rises; criminal racketeering to buy up subsidised goods and export them for sale in neighbouring countries (particularly Columbia); paramilitary incursions (particularly from Columbia) into Venezuelan territory; and a program of US led and enforced sanctions upon the progressive leadership of Venezuela, that may well escalate into a full US economic embargo (Blockade) of Venezuela. All this comes at a time when falling oil prices - also due to US manipulation of oil producing nations, encouraging overproduction and low prices - are also hitting Venezuela's income hard. A good article on the question can be read here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/mystery-behind-dropping-oil-prices-solved-concerted-market-manipulation/5430117 All of these measures are designed to be ramped up in the approach to Venezuela's parliamentary elections being held on 6th December 2015, are designed to send a brutally frank message to the Venezuelan people: come to heel, accept our economic dominance, and allow us to plunder your natural resources, or we will not let you enjoy the fruits of an egalitarian society in peace. The Venezuelan government led by President Maduro and the PSV are taking determined measures to counter the US attacks, and are confident they will secure victory and the breathing space to improve the lives of their people still further. Helena points to many of the institutions founded by Chavez, such as the Bolivarian Bank, Petrocaribe and ALBA which have a stabilising regional influence and that remain his egalitarian legacy, making Latin America very different place today. However while a wealth compradore elite continues to act in concert with the US, as the 'enemy within' Venezuela, the entire model of the Bolivarian revolution bears within itself the seeds of possible defeat. We wish the Venezuelan people well in securing a path to securing and consolidating the people's ownership of all their sources of natural and industrial wealth. Excellent speeches were also given by Jorge Luis Garcia, Councillor of the Cuban Embassy and Hyon Hak Bong, the DPR Korean ambassador to the UK. Follow the links below to see their speeches. Each of these countries, stands on the front line of the anti-imperialist struggle, and delivers a message of solidarity from their anti-imperialist, progressive and socialist movements, peoples and governments. British workers have much to learn from the workers of these countries about how to build and maintain a movement for social emancipation.

ENGOV, Environmental Governance in Latin America and the Caribbean
Environmental Governance in Latin America and the Caribbean: Developing Frameworks for Sustainable and Equitable Natural Resource Use ENGOV is a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission. The project focuses on the obstacles and possibilities for sustainable production systems that can generate both economic development and a more equitable knowledge input and distribution of benefits across ethnic, socioeconomic and gender lines in order to decrease poverty, exclusion, and environmental degradation in Latin America. The project's central objective is to understand how environmental governance is shaped in Latin America and to develop a new analytical framework for environmental governance in the region. In order to develop 'Latin American perspectives', the project is built up around two main aspects of environmental governance in the region: 1) the social context in which environmental governance is shaped, including historical, structural, institutional and information backgrounds; and 2) production systems and challenges to environmental justice. The nine themes of the research work packages are: Historicising unequal resource distribution Shifting elites and institutions in environmental governance Strategic actors and responsible consumption Building and exchanging knowledges on natural resources Analysing poverty and sustainable development Resource extraction conflicts compared Local solutions towards environmental justice Mitigation and adaptation to climate change Crossing boundaries in environmental governance The ENGOV project will start in March 2011 and will last four years. The project is coordinated by CEDLA and the consortium consists of the following institutions: CEDLA-UvA: Centre for Latin American Study and Documentation - Universiteit van Amsterdam, The Netherlands CLACSO: Consejo Latinoamericano de Ciencias Sociales, Argentina ICTA-UAB: Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals - Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain IRD: Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, France SUM-UiO: Centre for Development and the Environment - Universitetet i Oslo, Norway CDS-UnB: Centro de Desenvolvimento Sustentável - Universidade de Brasília, Brazil UAM-Xoc.: Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana - Xochimilco, Mexico IDEA-USACH: Instituto de Estudios Avanzados - Universidad de Santiago de Chile, Chile IIGG: Instituto de Investigaciones Gino Germani, Argentina UASB-SQ: Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar - Sede Quito, Ecuador Project Coordinator Dr. B.B.

MCMUN 2017 Theme Video
It is with great honor and pleasure that we welcome you all to the fourth session of our conference. Hosted by a prestigious high school, this year’s conference will take place from 15th to 18th December, in Ankara, in the heart of Turkey. In 2015, the United Nations established its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs consist of 17 separate goals but with one single overarching aim: to ensure the prosperity of humankind by 2030. The global goals call for action and effort towards building a future that is sustainable, bright, and full of hope. Therefore, we chose ‘Enhancing Global Development’ as the theme of this year’sconference because as Ban Ki-moon, the former Secretary General of the UN,once said "Sustainable development is the pathway to the future we want for all.” Despite the progressive improvementsin human rights and living standards, humanity still has not managed to resolve all of its problems. One in five people in developing regions still live on less than $1.25 a day, poverty is leading to hunger, malnutrition, lack of education and social discrimination. Our natural resources are being depleted day by day and climate change is leading to many global catastrophes. Epidemics and other diseases still claim the lives of many people. Every year, millions of children die from diseases related to inadequate water supply and hygiene. 57 million children remain out of school and inequalities in education have not yet been eliminated. Women and girls still face discrimination and violence in their daily lives.Billions of people rely on primitive sources of energy which greatly contribute to climate change. An estimated one third of food is being wasted when in other parts of the world, people are suffering from hunger. Thirteen million hectares of forests are being lost annually, although they are the key to protecting biodiversity. Due to the conflict and unrest in Syria, 11 million people have been killed or forced to flee their homes. Nonetheless, there still is hope for a better, brighter future. When presented with these facts, the significance of the Sustainable Development Goals becomes even clearer andI wholeheartedly believe that if everyone does their part, by 2030, we will have transformed our world into a developed and prosperous place. MCMUN 2017 is a platform for the adults of tomorrow to exchange ideas and seek solutions in order to help create this world. Delegates will be discussing to end conflicts in the Security Council and to sustain economic, social, and environmental development in the General Assembly committees. For the first time, MCMUN will have all six committees of the GA in order to embrace this issue in all of its aspects. Also, for the first time, our conference includes the International Court of Justice. Enhancing the global development of our world is only possible when everybody does their part by taking action. Participants of MCMUN 2017 will help achieve this by generating ideas and seeking solutions for the developed world we all desire. As a conclusion, we are looking forward to the reunion in December when you will have the opportunity to lobby, debate, resolve the current problems and designate a developed globe. Remember, growth and development depend upon effort and action.

Agenda 21, Youth Indoctrination, and the impending Green Police
UN Agenda 21 and "sustainability" is a smoke screen for increasing complete control of privately-owned land, natural resources, energy production, and "lifestyle" under the authority of a global ruling elite. Agenda 21 is worldwide fascism (public-private partnership and corporate favoritism enforced by regulation and police) disguised as "environmental sustainablility", "good global citizenship", and "smart growth" for local communities. People will be coerced (thru discriminate taxation or zoning ordinances) to move to megacities, and all food production will eventually be controlled by government and multinational corporations. Over the last two decades, Western youth have slowly been indoctrinated into "green-thinking", and the promotion of social globalism (the worldwide re-distribution of wealth as "social justice")---rather than the defense of national sovereignty and individual liberty. Agenda 21 is the implementation of NWO global totalitarianism on the local, state, and federal level. check out LechDharma.wordpress.com and http://www.freedom21.org/principles.html for more information.
