SJS/GreenPolicy360: Sparked by young activists, the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970 presented beginnings of a wave, a powerful expression of green ideals and ideas emerging in a serious and historic event. Today Earth Day continues on as a movement and a political cause. Now we are a diverse mix across the globe with many nationalities, voices, faiths, religions, colors and ages. We witness the young out in front with energy. We continue on year after year, decade after decade. Across our home planet, we are #PlanetCitizens. We are a work-in-progress.

NASA: You can manage only what you can measure

Q: What are the main science questions you (JPL/Caltech/NASA) hope OCO-3 will answer?

The big science question is about the movement of carbon dioxide between plants and the atmosphere.

If you look at the ground-based data, it almost looks like the planet is breathing. Plants in the northern hemisphere take up carbon dioxide as they grow in the spring and summer, reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by a few parts per million. In the fall, the leaves drop and carbon is released back into the air.

But every year is different... What we want to do is find drivers of the plant uptake of carbon and use that to better predict what will happen in the future. If we have a warmer, drier climate, will plants keep taking up as much carbon?

Pesticide 'Insectageddon'

The 8 Million++ Species We Donโ€™t Know

By Edward O. Wilson / NY Times

Destruction of Life, Large 'Charismatic' Creatures & "Tiny Little Ones"

About Baselines and Change.png

Microbiomes at Risk

The most striking fact about the living environment may be how little we know about it. Even the number of living species can be only roughly calculated. A widely accepted estimate by scientists puts the number at about 10 million. In contrast, those formally described, classified and given two-part Latinized names (Homo sapiens for humans, for example) number slightly more than two million. With only about 20 percent of its species known and 80 percent undiscovered, it is fair to call Earth a little-known planet.

To effectively manage protected habitats, we must also learn more about all the species of our planet and their interactions within ecosystems.

The best-explored groups of organisms are the vertebrates (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes), along with plants, especially trees and shrubs. Being conspicuous, they are what we familiarly call โ€œwildlife.โ€ A great majority of other species, however, are by far also the most abundant. I like to call them โ€œthe little things that run the world.โ€ They teem everywhere, in great number and variety in and on all plants, throughout the soil at our feet and in the air around us. They are the protists, fungi, insects, crustaceans, spiders, pauropods, centipedes, mites, nematodes and legions of others whose scientific names are seldom heard by the bulk of humanity. In the sea and along its shores swarm organisms of the other living world โ€” marine diatoms, crustaceans, ascidians, sea hares, priapulids, coral, loriciferans and on through the still mostly unfilled encyclopedia of life.

Do not call these organisms โ€œbugsโ€ or โ€œcritters.โ€ They too are wildlife. Let us learn their correct names and care about their safety. Their existence makes possible our own. We are wholly dependent on them.

Plankton: The Ocean Food Chain & Producer of Our Atmosphere's Oxygen

"A single kind of blue-green algae in the ocean produces the oxygen in one of every five breaths we take" ~ from "The World Is Blue: How Our Fate and the Oceanโ€™s Are One" by Sylvia Earle

Seventy percent of the Earth's surface is ocean... here, in myriad life forms, "tiny blue-green" organisms are essential to preserving life on the planet.

GreenPolicy360 is here for you...

Across borders, our network of websites, social media, associates and resources provide "green best practices" for all seasons. Our green news updates and online database deliver local and global green eco-policies that are actionable 24/7/365.

We've experienced millions of page visits and tens of millions of views. Our Introduction Video explains how we started and our initial goals.

We believe green dreams and green values in practice can turn 'ripples into waves' of change.

Our GreenLinks global connections, #PlanetCitizens in action, is growing as many of us see the immediate necessity of confronting the climate crisis and environmental challenges on multiple fronts.

GreenPolicy360 was developed for use in all communities, local, national, and international. GreenPolicy lets you know how other communities are dealing with key green policy issues of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Use the models and templates here to craft green legislation/proposals/resolutions/ordinances for your local community. Use our online platform to build on what has worked in other communities and locations.

Create waves of change and keep on keeping on!
