War Between Russia, Ukraine: Risks of Expansion

War Between Nuclear Weapons States?
Fact: There is NO Winning a Nuclear Exchange, NO Winning with Nuclear Weapons

As years of nuclear weapons drawdowns of arsenals, now comes a heating up of nuclear weapons tensions as hard-earned global nuclear treaties collapse like dominoes...

We watch as experts on nuclear weapons express their deep concerns. Here, in early 2022 we point to Professor Tom Nichols on his last day at a U.S War College as he accepts his medal and begins the next phase of his life. Here is one of his posts...

>Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) Tweeted:

I wrote a book on nukes in 2015. This is the excerpt on the logic of flexible response. Again, think of it now as the Russians, through their own malevolence and stupidity, today being where NATO was 40 years ago. And think hard before hand-waving at escalatory concerns. /10x

Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin: Step back from the brink....

Order the ambassadors to talk security. Real security. War involving nuclear-armed states will never bring real security...

New Definitions of National Security


Strategic Demands of the 21st Century A New Vision for a New World.png


Strategic Demands grew from an initial "Strategic Demands of the 21st Century" policy paper and "Surviving Victory" conference organized in Washington DC to propose new definitions of national and global security.

From the 2006 Green Institute/Global Policy forum and subsequent launch of GreenPolicy360 and eOS network, we have continued to offer a wide array of work drawing together GreenPolicy360 & Strategic Demands.

Looking Back, Looking Forward


From the mid-1960s to the second decade of the 21st Century

Fifty + years of educating, organizing and personal activism


Origins of 'StrategicDemands.com


Steven J Schmidt / GreenPolicy360 Siterunner: The initial volley of arguments made by your GreenPolicy360 and Strategic Demands founder can be traced back to the mid-1960s and a meeting with a newly elected California Congressman -- George E Brown.


"My Friend George" -- https://www.greenpolicy360.net/w/George_E._Brown_Jr


In his rumpled suits and quiet way George E. Brown moved to form coalitions few thought could be formed and garnered support for the first set of U.S. Congressional acts that served as foundation legislation for decades of green progress.


It started in East Los Angeles. We were called a 'barrio', but we were a launchpad, yes we were...


The First Earth Day: Personal Memories by Steven Schmidt of George's Role


Congressman Brown's work advanced environmental air quality and clean air legislation. He introduced the nation's first bill to ban lead in gasoline and was at the forefront of the Clean Air Act. He attacked Los Angeles smog, some of the worst air quality of any city in the world at the time and the air standards that came out of California became models worldwide. He succeeded in clean air and water efforts, though rarely given credit given his quiet approach to accomplishing big picture goals.

EPA History


George was a key player in legislation founding the Environmental Protection Agency.

As the LA Times noted (without pomp or circumstance) in George's obituary in 1999: "He championed the creation of the federal Environmental Protection Agency". The creation of the EPA was in many ways Congressman George Brown's vision achieved..."


Environmental Protection Agency logo.png


The founding of the EPA was based on new realizations of science and the environment. The vision of the "Whole Earth" that began with unprecedented Apollo photos on the cover of Life magazine in January 1969 led to a coming together of education, students 'teach-ins', scientific space missions studying earth systems for the first time, and popular demands for environmental protections.

A leader and a chairperson on the House science committee for over 30 years, George legislatively engineered an array of science efforts, including one that greens look to as prescient -- climate science.


From California to the World


GreenPolicy360 Siterunner: In the early years of the modern environmental movement, a conscious effort was made to construct a foundation of environmental laws and regulations on which a multi-year environmental protection framework could be built. Your GreenPolicy360 founder was one of those who believed in this constructive paradigm, using model legislation that could be locally developed, often in our state of California, then shared, 'exported' as we used to say, 'to the Feds' for adoption at the national level. The history here provides an ongoing modus operandi from the 60s and 70s until now as we deal with the pressing local, national, and international/global environmental threats and crises. We, at GreenPolicy360, call this "green best practices". Best practices is a model for sharing, networking, building on success and action. Templates and models, best practices made openly available, are our plans for having multiplier effects -- and it is our ongoing mission. A strong and resilient legal foundation and framework of environmental laws is an essential part of our overall work. We encourage you to join in as citizens of every nation, within your multiple and diverse legal systems and, we must add, as planet citizens.


George Brown, Sci Com't.jpg


When Congressman Brown drafted originating legislation establishing a national climate change research program via the National Climate Program Act of 1978, the scientific community and nation were just beginning to awaken to a new national security threat. I remember his concern, our concern. He was trained as a scientist, an engineer, with an ability to see facts and data sets in a way others could not.

Representative Brown was out in front of "Big Science". In his decades on the House Science, Space & Technology Committee, he worked to expand the reach of science. He knew that good data enabled good policy decisions. He pressed for first-generation earth science satellites and ongoing earth monitoring missions and data sharing.

Among his many initiatives, George Brown was a key figure in proposing, establishing, and then saving the Landsat program and its unique 'open-access' database of Earth Science imaging when President Reagan attempted to shut Landsat down. Landsat was a model for all the following earth science research missions from space and is now moving into its fifth decade with Landsat 9.

Earth/Space Science, Landsat Update: April 2021

SJS/GreenPolicy360 Siterunner:


A tip of our GreenPolicy360 hat to George E. Brown Jr who envisioned the Landsat's mission, the beginning of earth imaging and open access to the data and as a science leader in the US Congress supported, expanded and protected the earth science mission over the decades. The launch now, in April 2021, of Timelapse by Google Earth realizes a next step in George's decades-long quest to bring knowledge of our home planet to all citizens.

GreenPolicy360 and Strategic Demands

GreenPolicy360's origins connect deeply with Strategic Demands. The intersection began in the 1960s, with a new Congressman, George E. Brown from East Los Angeles and a young debater, a high school student who set in motion with the Congressman a multi-year journey to develop climate/environmental science and generational activism and strong, deep opposition to nuclear weapons.

Here is a quick snapshot of where our connections and work have led and links you can follow with our group of founders.... relationships and ideas carried forward from the 1960s and 70s and going strongly today.

We are diverse mix, across the globe now with the Internet, many voices, colors, ages, especially young people joining in. GreenPolicy360 and Strategic Demands.... including Steve Schmidt, George E. Brown, Dan Ellsberg, Jerry Brown, Roger Morris, and Charlene Spretnak.

Welcome along... green, environmental, national and global.... strongly confronting and working to solve our generation's existential challenges. Reaching across our home planet, touching and interacting with planet citizens, looking to share solutions to the pressing problems and challenges of our generation.
