Welcome to Our GreenPolicy MediaWiki Network

GreenPolicy360 -- Greening Our Blue Planet

GreenPolicy360 is an eOS, an 'eco Operating System' designed to share green best practices.

We believe in "change, change for the better" as 'planet citizens' of a blue-green 360° world so magnificently first viewed in December 1968 from the Apollo 8 mission.

The GreenPolicy360 network is a clearinghouse where you can find what works and 'repurpose' green policies and practices without ‘reinventing the wheel’. Take the green best practices offered via Topics and Categories and pass them along. Offer your green success stories and practical solutions by uploading your model green practices for all to use.

GreenPolicy360 encourages all in our global network to work in keeping with the importance of facts and science.

We are planet citizens and planet citizens, planet scientists.

Our Origin with Green Institute

SJS / Siterunner: GreenPolicy360 began as a project proposed to the Green Institute by your GreenPolicy siterunner. At the time I was a co-founder of the Green Institute and its publishing director. As envisioned, our GreenPolicy online network set out to be a GreenLinks global resource of shared green 'best practices'. Our goal imagined green policies flowing into practice, from local to global, a kinetics of action and dynamic change.

Green Institute's director, Dean Myerson, and the advisory board including Bill McKibben who was about to begin his "Step It Up" global warming campaign and 350.org, said "Go, greenlight" to the original GreenPolicy best practices online network. We launched!

In 2006, our first test version site went online in beta. By 2008, we had expanded our network, renamed as 'GreenPolicy360', and Green Institute transferred its .net/.com/.org domains and oversight to our current green team and MediaWiki cooperative model.

In the years following, the GreenPolicy project has grown steadily. We have tens of million views of the main home site, and tens of millions more shares, forwards and re-forwards of content and pages. Our GreenLinks network is global and our PlanetCitizens media is reaching a worldwide audience.

Our partnered organization, Strategic Demands @strategicdemands.com continues its influential work developing 'new definitions of national and global security.' GreenPolicy has extended its outreach with an eco Operating System (eOS) of sites (including thinbluelayer.com and has linked with NASA mission management and scientific studies of Earth's 'Thin Blue' atmosphere. We are expanding capabilities and apps, and linking green initiatives, policies and practices in a growing worldwide open source network.

Ongoing operating systems updates include Semantic MediaWiki updates and constant online security improvements.

... Remembering the student teach-ins, the means we used to spread the word and we did. The Vietnam Moratorium Committee became the peace group and and when we talked to Senator Nelson and George Brown about doing environmental teach-ins that would be the first in a series of annual peace and environment events they got it and put their combined weight behind the effort.

It came to be, from an Earthrise moment, to the Moratorium demonstrations and teach-in, to the teach-ins of Earth Day. What quickly followed was the passage of the first generation of US environmental protection legislation.

The environmental movement that sprang from the global realization passed on to us by the NASA Apollo missions, and student activism, are shaping a new generation and modern environmental movement.

The 1970s and 80s

Greening Our Blue Planet

An environmental foundation, initiatives and laws that serve a model for state -- and international -- action:

In 1977-78 the first climate science comes to light... first generation science for national and global environmental action set a platform in place on which to create climate policy and environmental protection over the coming decades ...

First National Climate Act, Historic Work, 1978

GreenPolicy360 Siterunner / SJS: The beginnings of modern environmental and climate science can be traced to the 60s and 70s. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences played a key role with scientific reports and data.

Energy and Climate Report, 1977, National Academy of Sciences / 175 pp. / PDF via GreenPolicy360

George Brown, taking the 1977 Energy and Climate Report from the Academy, made climate science actionable. In a historic moment, Representative Brown from East Los Angeles proposed and drafted the legislation for the first U.S. National Climate Program and shepherded its passage in 1978. In 1979 came the first follow-on National Science Academy report. This study and report of national scientists was prescient and accurate in its global warming predictions.

This first federal program established to study and assess scientifically the issues and risks of human-caused climate change became a foundation for comprehensive initiatives, and led to an array of new Earth Science missions by NASA and NOAA, the EPA and USGS.

Proposing and Organizing a "Serious, Credible, Platform-based U.S. Green Party"

Organizing an international Green Platform with a Coalition of Green Parties

SJS / Siterunner: Our formative U.S. Green Party, after the 1996 campaign, reached out to European Green parties and I worked via our new U.S Green Party Platcom to draft a first-ever Green Parties "Common Ground" Platform document articulating core, shared U.S./European Green party values and positions.

The following document memorializes what we presented that was approved and passed in Paris in 1999.
