Environmental Security to Advance National Security

Environmental Security & "New Definitions of National Security"


GreenPolicy360.png



Green Policy/Strategic Demands work focuses on three security currents:
  • Environmental Security as a field of "Green Best Practices" enabled by the rapidly developing Internet connecting communities, shared science, and new security concepts, objectives and goals
  • Environmental Security as an interdisciplinary scientific venture — a challenge for traditional disciplines as global climate change/global warming, biosphere sustainability and related threat environments demand solutions across national borders and scientific fields of study
  • Environmental Security with advanced earth exploration — earth systems/resources observation/monitoring — by new and next generation earth-facing satellites. Planet APIs are being developed — the result of new ways of seeing, knowing and acting.


The Internet-enabled world is connecting billions of "digital citizens" who are networked in new ways that challenge old orthodoxies and traditional points of view. A 360° global perspective is presenting new opportunities, and challenges. The trend toward engagement with knowledge delivered via "the Net" is gathering momentum and is accelerating.

GreenPolicy360 & its associate, Strategic Demands, are exploring #keyphrases such as #Earth360 #PlanetCitizen and #PlanetCitizens #EarthPOV and #GoingGreen. We are connecting an "integral ecology" of #environmentalsecurity and #nationalsecurity to advance a new vision that will change how 'national security' has been defined over the centuries.

A multi-lateral, multi-dimensioned world is in the process of coming to be and the concept of defining "new definitions of national security" and "green best practices" shapes our policy concerns.

Recent #EarthMonitoring and #EarthScience from space must continue to be rapidly deployed to critically assess, evaluate and provide policy recommendations for essential planetary #EnvironmentalSecurity and #NationalSecurity.

Recent scientific studies of varying urgency have demonstrated a wide range of threats to local/regional/national/international environments. ‘Existential’ questions have become a first-order priority of concern rising to action-demanded status among traditional, historic security concerns.

PlanetCitizen - Your Moment on Earth.jpg


Intro/GreenPolicy360 Siterunner: For some 40+ years your GreenPolicy360 siterunner has worked in many varied ways to get the word out on the crucial importance of environmental security. From the first Earth Day to the first warning from the new committee of science with the push from Congressman George E. Brown, through various career incarnations I have attempted to 'work the message', gathering (curating as it's now called) the best science and writing up and sharing key strategies and goals even against the odds. The risks we have identified and shared have now turned into a crisis.

Perhaps it is human nature to be overwhelmed, or what my teacher Hannah Arendt described in the 'Human Condition' as the realms of labor, work, and action. Many choose to go along to get along, and not act when the threats grow extreme, even existential. But to those who take the chance to make a difference and stand up and do your best to make changes that change the world for the better, I salute you for your bravery.

Now comes another warning from the international science community. This warning is dire. The latest news looms to such an extent as to be overwhelming, depressing and potentially driving us toward resignation and inaction, but it should not prevent us from action as Michael E. Mann's latest book, 'The Fight to Take Back Our Planet' argues persuasively.

Act with hope and not fear. Earth is in our hands. Take in the news, consider the science, then in your own way, act to make a positive difference.

Focus on solutions to identified problems. Don't give up, never give up.


Devastating News: Climate Change Impacts to Hit Sooner than Predicted

Climate change will fundamentally reshape life on Earth in the coming decades, even if humans can tame planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, according to a landmark draft report from the UN's climate science advisors obtained by AFP.

Species extinction, more widespread disease, unliveable heat, ecosystem collapse, cities menaced by rising seas—these and other devastating climate impacts are accelerating and bound to become painfully obvious before a child born today turns 30.

The choices societies make now will determine whether our species thrives or simply survives as the 21st century unfolds, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says in a draft report seen exclusively by AFP.

But dangerous thresholds are closer than once thought, and dire consequences stemming from decades of unbridled carbon pollution are unavoidable in the short term.

"The worst is yet to come, affecting our children's and grandchildren's lives much more than our own."


Crushing Climate Impacts: Draft UN report

PARIS (AFP) / June 23, 2021 - Climate change will fundamentally reshape life on Earth in the coming decades, even if humans can tame planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, according to a landmark draft report from the UN's climate science advisers obtained by Agence France-Presse.

Species extinction, more widespread disease, unliveable heat, ecosystem collapse, cities menaced by rising seas - these and other devastating climate impacts are accelerating and bound to become painfully obvious before a child born today turns 30.

The choices societies make now will determine whether our species thrives or simply survives as the 21st century unfolds, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says in a draft report seen exclusively by AFP...


"The worst is yet to come, affecting our children's and grandchildren's lives much more than our own," the report says.

By far the most comprehensive catalogue ever assembled of how climate change is upending our world, the report reads like a 4,000-page indictment of humanity's stewardship of the planet.

But the document, designed to influence critical policy decisions, is not scheduled for release until February 2022 - too late for crunch UN summits this year on climate, biodiversity and food systems...
