SJS/GreenPolicy360: "We are the first generation to scientifically and systemically monitor the 'Vital Signs' of the Earth. Let us work now to expand our vision and act to protect Earth's living systems. The well-being of future generations is in our hands."

GreenPolicy360 Siterunner: The beginnings of modern environmental and climate science can be traced to the 1960s and 1970s. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences played a key role in laying a foundation of scientific reports and data.

Planet Citizens, Planet Scientists, Preserving & Protecting the Home Planet Earth

GreenPolicy360: The original Mission Statement of the newly launched U.S. space program spoke of our planet and our responsibilities. GreenPolicy360's founder was fortunate, beginning in the 1960s, to listen to Congressman Brown Congressman George E. Brown point to the NASA plan and explain how he saw Congress put into action the reality of a multi-year, coordinated, multi-agency program to achieve mission goals. Earth science, measuring and monitoring Earth's life-enabling systems was given highest priority. Landsat's program was set in motion as a decades long, first-ever digital scanning remote satellites data collecting study. An array of satellites began to launch, creating and combining the expanding resources of NASA, USGS, NOAA, and an array of educational and scientific institutions and aeronautics business.

The overall goal, Representative Brown would continue to explain in his Congressional Science, Space & Technology leadership roles over the decades, was to understand, preserve and protect our planet as we, humanity, develop the science to look beyond the Earth and study 'the heavens'.

GreenPolicy360: In 1994, your Green Policy siterunner ran for Lieutenant Governor in New Mexico on a "Children's Agenda". After the election, an appointment by the elected Governor, hearings and confirmation vote by the NM Senate, I moved into a constitutional position on the State Board of Education 'overseeing public education, policy and management' of some 50% of the state's budget.

My first act in 1995 as a member of the Board was to propose a "K-16" strategic plan and expand access to the Internet to all schools in NM. One of the tasks I took on was chairing NM Technology initiatives, including representing the state and serving on the start up Working Group for a new multi-state 'virtual university'. Online, distance learning has taken many steps forward since then. Over the years, the 'virtual' Western Governors University has grown to be a powerful force in education. Here is a touch of the wisdom and skills imparted via the WGU:

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

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.
