On May 5th, all across the world, there will be events drawing attention to climate change. You can find an event or host an event by going to their website. Please read the official invitation & visit their website to check it out.

The Invitation

Dear Friends

Across the planet now we see ever more flood, ever more drought, ever more storms. People are dying, communities are being wrecked — the impacts we’re already witnessing from climate change are unlike anything we have seen before.

But because the globe is so big, it’s hard for most people to see that it’s all connected. That’s why, on May 5, we will Connect the Dots.

In places from drought-stricken Mongolia to flood-stricken Thailand, from fire-ravaged Australia to Himalayan communities threatened by glacial melt, we will hold rallies reminding everyone what has happened in our neighborhoods. And at each of those rallies, from Kenya to Canada, from Vietnam to Vermont, someone will be holding a…dot. A huge black dot on a white banner, a “dot” of people holding hands, encircling a field where crops have dried up, a dot made of fabric and the picture taken from above — you get the idea. We’ll share those images the world around, to put a human face on climate change–we’ll hold up a mirror to the planet and force people to come face to face with the ravages of climate change.

Anyone and everyone can participate in this day. Many of us do not live in Texas, the Philippines, or Ethiopia — places deeply affected by climate impacts. For those communities, there are countless ways to stand in solidarity with those on the front-lines of the climate crisis: some people will giving presentations in their communities about how to connect the dots. Others will do projects to demonstrate what sorts of climate impacts we can expect if the crisis is left unchecked. And still others of us will express our indignation to local media and politicians for failing to connect the dots in their coverage of “natural disasters.”

However you choose to participate, your voice is needed in this fight — and you can sign up here: www.climatedots.org

These will be beautiful events, we’re sure. But they will also have an edge. It’s important for all of us whose lives are being damaged to know that it’s right that we get a little angry at those forces causing this problem. The fossil fuel industry is at fault, and we have to make that clear. Our crew at 350.org will work hard to connect all these dots — literally — and weave them together to create a potent call to action, and we will channel that call directly to the people who need to hear it most.

May 5 is coming soon; we need to work rapidly. Because climate change is bearing down on us, and we simply can’t wait. The world needs to understand what’s happening, and you’re the people who can tell them.

Please join us–we need you to send the most important alarm humanity has ever heard: www.climatedots.org

Onwards,

Bill McKibben for the whole team at ClimateDots.org

And then on May 5th of next

And then on May 5th of next year... if any of us are still alive... we'll review the U.N.'s Agenda 21 program.

If you are still alive... then the U.N.'s Agenda 21 program isn't working as well as it should and then they'll tell you that the kool aid you just drank...

 

...was poisoned.

Riddle me this... MrsBJLee,

Riddle me this... MrsBJLee, do you think it's OK to kill people in order to "save" the planet?

Do you think that you are the "chosen" one to decide who gets to live and who doesn't?

If I am correct in my assumption, and you do think that people are killing the planet.  Why don't you think that the planet will adjust and wipe us out with a natural disaster?  Why do you think that YOU have the right to be a walking natural disaster and wipe people out with poisons and starvation the way that AGENDA 21 proposes?

Maybe you don't even know about agenda 21?

Do you know about agenda 21?

What's your opinion about agenda 21?

If you do know about agenda 21, and I am totally wrong about it... then tell me what I am wrong about.

I will listen.  I may crack wise every once and a while, but I do listen.  My mind can be changed.  I have a million opinions but NONE of them are written in stone.  Ok?

Excuse me... please inform me

Excuse me... please inform me on Agenda 21.

I would greatly appreciate it.

Do you know what Agenda 21 is?

Do you have an opinion about agenda 21?

Because maybe I have the wrong idea about agenda 21.

Maybe there are others that read this site that would like to know what Agenda 21 is all about.

Others do read this site.

You posted a U.N. sponsored event, right?  Agenda 21 is a core part of the United Nations.

If you are SO proud of the work that the U.N. does... then why are you silent when it comes to actually explaining just "what" it is that they do?

It sounds to me that you are either uninformed about Agenda 21 or that you are afraid to admit what Agenda 21 is all about.  I will repeat... maybe I am wrong about Agenda 21.  I don't want to go around being wrong about stuff.  Let me know about Agenda 21.  What do you think about it?  Do you even KNOW what it is.

If you don't know what it is... then maybe you should look it up before you go around promoting it.

You brought the topic up.

Please stand up and tell the class about Agenda 21.

Pretty please... with sugar on top.

Loves and kisses, Fletcher.

I will openly dedicate a great rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Jazz great, Stanley Jordan as a token of my affection for everyone here that actually believes in a true peaceful society.

I hope you enjoy it.  I'm sure that you will.

God Bless.

(There's a bogus ad that pops up at the beginning... sorry.  Just skip it and sit back and enjoy beautiful music.)

This is off topic. Why don't you start a new topic.

I am "connecting the dots"...

I am "connecting the dots"... are you?

Why won't you talk about the

Why won't you talk about the United Nations using food as a weapon?

Why won't you address Agenda 21?

The FACT that you won't engage in a discussion about actually "connecting the dots" speaks very loudly about your lack of knowledge on the subject.

Here you are PROMOTING something that you know very little about.

I'm sure you could host your own show on CNN.

Why did they change the name

Why did they change the name from "global warming" to "climate change"?

Connect those dots, sugar!

 

Somewhere... Al Jourgensen is smiling!  (He fronted the band Ministry and had a song where Al would scream, "connect the goddamn dots"!

Oddly enough... it's on the SAME album as is the song, "New World Order"?

Psalm 69:  The Way To Succeed - And The Way To Suck Eggs!

See... I can "connect the dots" until the cows come home!

Can you?

"CONNECT THE GODDAMN

"CONNECT THE GODDAMN DOTS!"

That was my Al Jourganson impersonation.

As I teenager, It was like a pilgrimage whenever I went to "WAX TRAX" records in Chicago.

Hegewisch Records was even better.  I learned more about social life from being a record store geek than any nerd that went to college and took a course.

My own personal hippie went out of business earlier this year.  His record store was called, "Hoosier Your Entertainment?".  I bought the last record he ever sold.

I've been doing this for quite a long time now.  I have a "real world" education.  I don't have to "pretend" to be a bleeding heart liberal and take on problems that someone else has and make them my own... I AM THE MINORITY!  I don't have that "privilege" of being rich or having rich relatives that affords me the time it takes to become "snooty" like MrsBJLee and MEJ and Sacramento Dave.

Like John Lennon... I say what I mean, mean what I say and sometimes, I put a back beat to it!

I CAN'T talk out the side of my neck and do DOUBLETHINK!  I have a conscious.  I don't "pretend" to love people so much that I think they should be killed.  That's what the U.N. does.  That's what supporters of the U.N. do.  

AGENDA 21

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agenda_21

Notice under  "STRUCTURE AND CONTENTS" the "SECTION 1:  Social and Economic Dimensions".  It slips in "change population and sustainable settlement in decision making".

What that means in plain talk... kill and sterilize people.

NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO STERILIZE AND KILL PEOPLE!!!  Anyone who is in favor of these actions are usurping the role of GOD!  Even if you are not a believer of a higher power... it's immoral behavior.  If you think that's it's OK to do so, then so is everything else.  You might as well be a believer of no rules capitalism.  What's the difference?

What?  So you think that there "should" be rules when it comes down to property and money... BUT, no rules when it comes down to life and liberty?  So you think that all people are equal, but some people have the right to be MORE equal than others and make decisions on whether or not LESSER equal folks can procreate or breathe?

Ya bunch of psychopathic hypocrites!

Oh!  Did I offend you?  Then maybe you NEED to be offended!
