Mayors call for immediate action on Global Warming

Statement of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Executive Director Tom Cochran Regarding the Department of Energy’s Climate Change Plan

WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 /U.S. Newswire/ — United States Conference of Mayors Executive Director Tom Cochran issued the following statement today regarding the Department of Energy’s Climate Change plan:

“With the release of the administration’s Climate Change plan, it appears that the Department of Energy is proposing technology for the future to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“While long-term technology is needed, the nation’s mayors recognize that there is plenty of current technology that can be implemented now. Mayors are on the forefront of this issue and have taken the lead in addressing the nation’s energy challenges to reduce our dependency on foreign oil.

“Nearly 300 mayors have already committed to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions by 7 percent from 1990 levels. Mayors are also doing innovative things like switching their city fleets to alternative fuels and encouraging more energy efficient buildings to be built or retrofitted.

“In May, the nation’s mayors held a National Summit on Energy and the Environment to sound the alarm on the nation’s growing energy challenges and to stress the importance of energy/environmental conservation. Mayors, industry experts and the private sector joined forces to exchange best practices on a broad range of topics including climate change, alternative energy sources, alternative vehicles, air quality, public transit and green housing and buildings.

“At our June meeting, The Conference of Mayors formed a Mayors Climate Protection Council, which is co-chaired by Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels and Carmel (IN) Mayor James Brainard. This bipartisan council, consisting of nearly 50 mayors, was formed to develop methods to combat climate change. A best practices book on solutions to climate change is available on the conference’s Web site now at http://www.usmayors.org.

“Next month, mayors are gathering in Atlanta to discuss ways that the public and private sector can work together to make all buildings carbon neutral by 2030. Mayors will be meeting with real estate developers, managers and architects about the types of incentives that can be provided that will encourage carbon- neutral development.

“The Conference of Mayors would welcome the participation of administration officials and Congress in the mayors’ efforts to help provide incentives on a national scale as we move forward with our efforts to reduce the impact of climate change.”

  1. The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

    The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

    Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

    Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
    Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
    Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
    Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.

    Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

    If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

    Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.

    When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

    There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

    People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

    Emotion ends.

    Man becomes machine.

    A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

    A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

    A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.

    FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

    SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

    A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

    A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.
