This report is no longer available on the Breakthrough Institute website, fortunately I had the foresight to download it before it "disappeared". It was written in 2013.

It was prepared by the Breakthrough Institute, Center for American Progress and American Environics.

This is not a report debunking climate change - it's a report on what needs to be done to prepare for climate change.

The cost to save the people from the rising water disappearing their countries and states has been estimated at 12-13 trillion dollars. Or, the likud solution, let them die.

Likud can be inserted in place of fascist. I always thought they were closest to fascists and then I read Eisenhower thought the same thing. Of course the kochs thought Ike was a communist, and their dad knew fascists having worked for Hitler and Stalin, while embracing Mussolini and Franco.

Thank you for your trouble to make that document available again.

Too many of these ideas are purged from access while the main stream continues to create the illusion that nothing of this nature needs our immediate attention.

Pacified people need to learn that they can do for themselves. This means re-inventing the language to serve their needs, not the managers'. The proposal to manage risk & invest in resilient communities starts off with doing that. Of course the corporate managers (the fascists) don't want them to realize that by talking about a renewed social contract. The manager's job is to manage efficiently. And democracy is anything but effiecient.

.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/ predicts civilization failure for Europe but not Israel, because they are happy to kill innocent unarmed children huddling with their fleeing moms and dads. New senor Rabbis or whatever their chief mufti is called are now in the Israeli governing apparatus. The description of Israel as "a democratic and Jewish state" now says it is a Jewish state primarily, occasionally or maybe democratic if there are no wars (which means never).

The orthodox and/or Hasidic rabbis advised killing gentile children to end risk to Jews in the future. So, since they are now part of the coalition, more wholesale slaughter will just continue and all we can do is BDS (boycott divest sanction) which is popular on university campuses. Maybe that's why GOP governors are denying students' rights to vote.

there is an explanation: Western civilization is exhausted, probably dead. After two thousand years of existence, it is basking in nihilism and self hatred, it does not create anything and lives only on resentment and rancor. The culture of instant prevents us from projecting ourselves into the future.

A process is underway and seems uncontrollable. The cruel truth is that our civilization is collapsing. It lasted 1,500 years. We are witnessing the closing of Europe. The ship is sinking. The hedonistic West will fall to Islam. Israel will not!

We were doing just fine until unelected W with Cheney's hand up his butt pulling his mouth strings went and made Isis, and all the refugees. Reagan appointed those scotus members and the important one, Sandra Day, that was the 4th vote required for 'Standing'. So if Europe fails, it's reagan's fault.

No offense, doug, but your posts about Israel don't appear to have much to do with the Proposal to Manage Resilient Communities (which, I see, was entirely focused on doing so here in the U.S.).

Perhaps you were intending them to go on this thread?

Yep, I'm a lousy muli-tasker. I still start multiple thought patterns but lose my place. Thanks.

That pretty much covers why I like to write. 'Like to' does not imply that I entertain any illusions that I'm any good at it, but that writing helps me because I'm doing too much for my little brain to contain all at once and I'm ever confusing myself with mixed convolutions.

Dory, I applaud your effort. However, that's a 10-year-old plan. Corporations have been working on making things in that plan illegal. Like in Florida's state government employees aren't allowed to even say the words global warming without potentially loosing their jobs serving at the pleasure of the sociopath governor Scott.

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
