Responsibilities of Planet Citizens

SJS / GreenPolicy360 Siterunner:

Over the decades, in my political work, I have endeavored to develop "new definitions of national security."

In the late 1960s, inspired by the nascent moments of the modern environmental movement with images from an Apollo mission of the Earth rising from beyond the moon, a life-changing January 1969 cover of Life Magazine, and 'Whole Earth' realizations being shared for the first time, I began my involvement in larger strategic questions.

My initial political mentor George E. Brown and new relationships with thoughtful figures such as Dan Ellsberg at Rand Institute in Santa Monica brought insight into war and peace and challenged me.

The opportunity to become involved in the first Earth Day expanded my vision far beyond academic constraints and I began to explore connections between environmental security and international, global affairs.

Today the mission continues: To create a new security paradigm, a school of thought that identifies and advances contours of "real and resilient security".

US House of Representatives Says 'No' to Pentagon Prepping for Climate Impacts/Disruption

Republicans in US Congress Vote to Block National & Global Security

NASA Earth Sciences 2016 Budget No Longer Cut $500 Million

The final budget bill provides $1.92 billion for Earth Science research. The cut is slight compared to initial GOP budget cuts proposed in the House and Senate which had slashed as much as $500 million from the President's request.

NASA administrator Charles Bolden argued before Congress this summer and fall that it was critical to increase the size of NASA's Earth Science programs.

Under the newly passed Fiscal Year 2016 NASA Budget, virtually all of the agency’s programs benefit with either full or added funding.

Funding cuts to NASA's critical Earth science and space technology programs?

On May 1, 2015, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director Dr. John P. Holdren issued the following statement on proposed funding cuts to NASA's critical Earth science and space technology programs:

"If enacted, the NASA authorization bill headed to the House floor later this month would do serious damage to the Nation’s space program, as well as to Earth-observation and Earth-science programs essential for predicting, preparing for, and minimizing the damage from disasters both natural and human-induced...

The House bill would also gut the NASA “mission to planet Earth”—the satellite observations and related research that provide key measurements and insights relevant to forecasting and tracking hurricanes, fighting wildfires, observing the state of the world’s farms and forests, mapping the extent of droughts, measuring the stocks of groundwater, and monitoring the likelihood of landslides. The draconian cuts in the House bill would also delay advances in our ability to research and prepare for volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and tsunamis and blind us to changes in the Earth’s oceans and ice sheets that can be discerned only from space.

NASA’s mission to observe, understand, and explore the solar system and the cosmos beyond has long been matched in importance by its mission to use the unrivaled vantage point of Earth orbit for looking downward, to better understand the only home that humanity currently has. It is difficult to understand why, at this time of U.S. leadership in both the outward-facing and inward-facing facets of NASA’s operations in space, the Congress would want to undermine that leadership and sacrifice the panoply of benefits it brings to the Nation."
