Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35
 
08:47
So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Mongols Shirts and Crash Course Posters! http://store.dftba.com/collections/crashcourse In which John Green wraps up revolutions month with what is arguably the most revolutionary of modern revolutions, the Industrial Revolution. While very few leaders were beheaded in the course of this one, it changed the lives of more people more dramatically than any of the political revolutions we've discussed. So, why did the Industrial Revolution happen around 1750 in the United Kingdom? Coal. Easily accessible coal, it turns out. All this, plus you'll finally learn the difference between James Watt and Thomas Newcomen, and will never again be caught telling people that your blender has a 900 Newcomen motor.

Is the world getting better or worse? A look at the numbers | Steven Pinker
 
18:33
Was 2017 really the "worst year ever," as some would have us believe? In his analysis of recent data on homicide, war, poverty, pollution and more, psychologist Steven Pinker finds that we're doing better now in every one of them when compared with 30 years ago. But progress isn't inevitable, and it doesn't mean everything gets better for everyone all the time, Pinker says. Instead, progress is problem-solving, and we should look at things like climate change and nuclear war as problems to be solved, not apocalypses in waiting. "We will never have a perfect world, and it would be dangerous to seek one," he says. "But there's no limit to the betterments we can attain if we continue to apply knowledge to enhance human flourishing."

Alan Watt - Exposing Mikhail Gorbachev
 
09:08
More revealing quotes below: "The State of the World Forum will focus on the fundamental challenges and opportunities as we enter the next phase of human development. It is being held in the belief that at this momentous juncture in history, we are giving birth to the first global civilization." Mission Statement from "The State of the World Forum" sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation, located at the Presidio in San Francisco attended by among others George W H Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher, Maurice Strong, Ted Turner and Bill Gates. (1995) "The environmental crisis is the cornerstone of the new world order." Mikhail Gorbachev, speaking at a World Government planning session held at the State of the World Forum at the Presidio, in San Francisco hinting that that Globalists would use the so-called environmental crisis as a platform to argue in favour of a world government, which they claim is essential to solve the crisis. Environmentalism and its associated false science of "greenhouse effect," "global warming" "climate change" etc are used to confuse and delude people into believing a catastrophic event lies in the near future because of rampaging humanity and uncontrolled use of natural resources. This is great lie. Environmentalism is part of the socialist move for World Empire and is thus a mechanism of control and regulation .... It is all about control ... control of everyone everywhere from the cradle to the grave (1995) "..The precondition for eventual and genuine globalization is progressive regionalization because by that we move towards larger, more stable, more cooperative units." Zigbniew Brzezinski, speaking at the Gorbachev Conference, (1995) "We need a new paradigm of development, in which the environment will be priority ... World civilization as we know it will soon end... We have very little time and we must act ... the need for sustainable development ... and the need for global environmental security [which is only possible if we] change our mindset - the way humankind views the world .... If we can address the environment problem, we have hope ... but it will have to be done within a new system, a new paradigm ...[but it is imperative for us to] change our current values [and to] join forces [with others around the world] since environmental problems are of a global nature .... By the year 2002 we will be presenting, the final draft of the Earth Charter! ... The main work is still ahead of us [moreover] the United States can play an important role in helping to establish the New International Order." Mikhail Gorbachev, former dictator of Russia and "radical environmentalist," speaking at the Clowes Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana. (1996) "Cosmos is my God; Nature is my God," Mikhail Gorbachev: Former Soviet dictator is the archetypal "watermelon Marxist" -- green on the outside, Red, very, very Red on the inside. His declaration to Charlie Rose in a PBS television interview (1996) "My hope is that this charter will be a kind of Ten Commandments, a 'Sermon on the Mount,' that provides a guide for human behavior toward the environment in the next century and beyond." Mikhail Gorbachev: former dictator of the Soviet Empire and KGB bigwig in an interview with the LA Times regarding the Earth Charter, the New Age inspired document that will be used to bring about a Global Empire founded on tyranny (1997) Quotes from: http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/1985-89.html http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/1990-94.html http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/1995-99.html http://www.livinglifefully.com/flo/flocallfornewvalues.htm

Global Conference 2014 - Focus 6 - Nuclear and shale hydrocarbons
 
01:06:49
Focus 6 -- «Nuclear and shale hydrocarbons: what part of uncertainty can we accept » Three years after the disaster that struck Japan, the situation has not been solved in the Fukushima power plant, reminding us strongly the risks linked to a nuclear accident. Despite the ambitions shown by certain governments to implement an energy transition in order to favor a progressive nuclear phase-out and diminish their reliance to fossil fuels, things are changing very slowly. At the same time, the shale oil revolution leads some States to look closer at this fossil resource, which extraction techniques are highly contested and which costs are not totally mastered. Inventing a new social project implies rethinking our relation to natural resources and transforming our energy supply and consumption models. As zero risk does not exist, how much uncertainty can we accept in elaborating these new energy models? Speakers : Ms. Chantal JOUANNO, Senator of Paris; Founder, Écolo Éthik (France) Mr. Sylvain LAPOIX, Free lance Journalist (France) Mr. Kosuke OKAHARA, Documentary Photographer (Japan) Ms. Deborah ROGERS, Executive Director, Energy Policy Forum (United-States) Mr. Robert BELL, Former Chairman, Department of Finance and Business Management, Brooklyn College, City University of New York (United States)

Oil and gas companies are facing major technological disruption
 
14:49
Pressure to reduce carbon emissions is putting the future of fossil fuel giants in jeopardy. Their survival plans involve carbon storage and floating wind farms. Meanwhile, one small German village is showing how large companies aren't always essential. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Over 80% of the world's energy needs are provided by coal, oil and gas. Although technologies to extract fossil fuels may have changed over the decades, the core products themselves have never been challenged. Until now. Pressure to reduce carbon emissions is putting the future of fossil fuel giants in jeopardy. Encouraging the growth of alternative methods to generate and distribute power. In just eight years, the value of the world's biggest power companies has halved. Leaving industry giants scrambling to redefine their role in this new energy world. Across the world, old industries are facing disruption on an unprecedented scale. The pressure to adapt has never been greater. Known as the Paris Accord, 195 countries agreed to a legally binding climate deal to reduce carbon emissions. This 5 trillion dollar industry may be facing a seismic shift but that doesn't mean it's ready to ditch the dirty fossil fuels that made it rich. Instead, many companies are banking on new methods to clean up an old process. Norwegian oil and gas giant, Statoil, struck it rich in the North Sea in the late 1960s. Over four decades later, at its Sleipner gas rig, the company is attempting to make fossil fuel production cleaner. Statoil's business still relies on the harmful burning of fossil fuels by its customers but at least the company is trying to reduce its own carbon footprint. It's transformed some of its offshore rigs with technology that enables engineers to separate the carbon dioxide and pump it underground. Statoil's Sleipner gas rig is the world's first offshore carbon capture storage plant. Each year, Statoil stores 1 million tonnes of CO2 making extraction less carbon intensive. They believe that prioritising gas over more harmful fossil fuels will further reduce global warming and keep them relevant for decades to come. Wind and solar are cleaner but depend on subsidies. To take on the consistency of fossil fuels they face a huge challenge - The unpredictable weather. In Bavaria, a tiny village has used those subsidies to take up the challenge. This community believes it's found a way to produce a steady energy supply just from renewable sources, raising the real prospect of a future free from fossil fuels. Norbert and Kristina Bechteler's family farm has been providing the local community with dairy products for over 200 years but they now have a new income from solar energy. Producing your own energy with solar panels isn't revolutionary but in this village, they're combining solar with other renewables in an attempt to achieve the Holy Grail of a steady energy supply. And they're prepared to use anything to do it. The Deputy Mayor has helped drive the village's pioneering efforts to make renewable energy a realistic option. There's one renewable that never disappears as it can be sourced from the decay of virtually any organic matter and it's called biogas. Of the four biogas plants in the village, Farmer Einsiedler runs the largest. Combining these different sources has been so successful the village now generates five times more energy than it needs. But that is just part of the challenge of turning renewables into a credible energy supply. The Disrupters is an original series exploring how major industries – from music and cars to hospitality – are currently being disrupted by the latest wave of digital innovation. As well as enjoying privileged access into the world biggest tech start ups we show how industry giants respond when faced with such tech-driven innovation - do they adapt - or die?

American Imperialism: Crash Course US History #28
 
14:04
In which John Green teaches you about Imperialism. In the late 19th century, the great powers of Europe were running around the world obtaining colonial possessions, especially in Africa and Asia. The United States, which as a young country was especially suceptible to peer pressure, followed along and snapped up some colonies of its own. The US saw that Spain's hold on its empire was weak, and like some kind of expansionist predator, it jumped into the Cuban War for Independence and turned it into the Spanish-Cuban-Phillipino-American War, which usually just gets called the Spanish-American War. John will tell you how America turned this war into colonial possessions like Puerto Rico, The Philippines, and almost even got to keep Cuba. The US was busy in the Pacific as well, wresting control of Hawaii from the Hawaiians. All this and more in a globe-trotting, oppressing episode of Crash Course US History.

The Future of Worldwide Income Distribution
 
06:31
The debate about income distribution has focused on the trend of rising inequality in the United States and other advanced economies. Worldwide, however, income distribution is becoming more equal. This video presents new evidence derived from surveys of households worldwide, which projects equality to improve further in the next 20 years. The main factor in that trend is strong growth raising hundreds of millions of people from poverty to the middle class or to affluence in China, India, sub-Saharan Africa, and other parts of the developing world. The reduction in global inequality will reshape the size and location of global consumption of goods and services. Unprecedented opportunities for businesses and investors lie ahead. But there will also be challenges posed by rising pressures on infrastructure, natural resources, the environment, and the global climate. This video is part of an effort by the Peterson Institute for International Economics to use different means for dissemination of economic data and analysis to the broad public on important issues and challenges.

[Public Lecture] Democracy by Bhutan Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay
 
45:23
The way parliamentary democracy was introduced in Bhutan is unprecedented in the history. It did not come about through demands of the population. It was thrust on to the people from the Throne by a beloved Monarch who believed that Parliamentary Democracy was the best form of governance for Bhutan even though Monarchy has ensured not only Bhutan’s survival as an independent nation through tumultuous global events but its flourishment as a peaceful and progressive country. In this talk, Bhutan Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay recounts the country’s transition from Monarchy to Parliamentary Democracy; the visionary leadership of the Great Fourth King of Bhutan who initiated the decentralization and democratization processes that ultimately led to the introduction of Parliamentary Democracy in Bhutan in 2008; the leadership of His Majesty the Fifth King of Bhutan in ensuring the success of democracy in Bhutan; and, Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay’s own journey in the public life. Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay left a senior position in the civil service to heed the call to public life amidst great reluctance of the general population to take part in the democratic process. He led a two-member strong opposition in Bhutan’s parliament after the first elections in Bhutan. As the Prime Minister, he now leads the country’s second democratically elected government. Watch the Q&A session here: https://youtu.be/MwMg73IaLeg ================================================ Tshering Tobgay is a Bhutanese politician who has been Prime Minister of Bhutan since 2013. He is also leader of the People’s Democratic Party and was Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly from March 2008 to April 2013. Tobgay co-founded the People’s Democratic Party and was responsible for establishing the Party as Bhutan’s first registered political party. Prior to politics, Tobgay was a civil servant, beginning his career in 1991 with the Technical and Vocational Education Section under the Department of Education. In 1998 he established and headed the National Technical Training Authority and served as a director in the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources from 2003 to 2007. ================================================ Visit us Website: http://lkyspp.nus.edu.sg Follow us on Facebook: http://facebook.com/nuslkyspp Twitter: http://twitter.com/lkysch LinkedIn University Page: https://www.linkedin.com/edu/school?id=42060

Plan B -- is there an alternative to economic growth?: Miklós Antal at TEDxDanubia 2014
 
15:17
Miklós Antal, ecological economist, is a postdoctoral researcher at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. He now studies macroeconomic aspects of sustainability transitions. Previously he was engaged in energy modeling at the Central European University in Budapest. He got his PhD in economics and MSc in engineering-physics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. His multidisciplinary research interests are reflected by a number of publications in respected scientific journals, both in natural and social sciences. His commitment to sustainability is not restricted to academic life, he is the scientist who also "walks the talk": his cell phone was hip ten years ago, he avoids flying (which can be a challenging principle to follow at times) and actively encourages his environment to explore the joys of green living. Antal Miklós a Barcelonai Autonóm Egyetem posztdoktori ösztöndíjas kutatója. Jelenleg a környezeti fenntarthatóság makroökonómiai aspektusait vizsgálja. Ezt megelőzően energetikai modellezéssel foglalkozott a Közép-Európai Egyetemen. Gazdaságtudományi doktoriját és mérnök-fizikus diplomáját a Budapesti Műszaki és Gazdaságtudományi Egyetemen szerezte. Széleskörű érdeklődését jelzi, hogy mind társadalomtudományi, mind természettudományi területen számos cikke jelent meg rangos nemzetközi folyóiratokban. Ő az a kutató, aki nem csak elméletben éli meg a fenntarthatóságot, hanem mindennapjaiba is beépíti azt: mostani telefonja 10 éve volt menő, nem repül (ami a nemzetközi munka kapcsán jelent némi kihívást), és igyekszik a környezetében lévő embereknek a „zöld" életforma érdekes és élvezetes aspektusait megmutatni. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Population Growth, Resource Consumption, and Political Unrest- part 2
 
05:08
Part 2: discussion. Kelvin Thomson is Member of Wills, Federal Parliament of Australia. This presentation is part of the panel "A Progressive Approach to Immigration Reform: US Immigration Policy and its Impact on Conservation and Labor", which was held on October 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. Kelvin Thomson discusses immigration and population growth's global impact on rising food prices, increased demand for grain and petroleum, and population's direct impact on social unrest. Recent findings demonstrate how rapid population growth fuels political instability. Thomson discusses the situation in countries such as Tunisia, Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana, where too many people competing for scarce available resources ultimately lead to social conflict. In many developed countries, high immigration has lead to higher unemployment rates and civil unrest. Thomson explains how policy makers should focus on policies to slow migration to solve social problems. ______________ Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is to educate the public concerning the unintended consequences of large-scale immigration and to promote policies to address them.

What is PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY? What does PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY mean?

What is PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY? What does PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY mean? PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY meaning - PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY definition - PROGRESSIVE UTILIZATION THEORY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Progressive Utilization Theory, also known by the acronym PROUT, is a collection of socioeconomic and political ideas propounded by Indian philosopher and spiritual leader Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar. Considered an integral part of his spiritual philosophy, Sarkar formulated the theory of his Ananda Marga movement in 1959 and summarized it in the fifth chapter of his book Ananda Sutram. According to a description by Terry Irving and Rowan Cahill, PROUT "envisages a decentralized, community-based world economy of self-sufficiency for the poor; economic democracy; small business; and limits on the accumulation of wealth." Sohail Inayatullah stated that the philosophy "attempts to balance the need for societies to create wealth and grow with the requirements for distribution." David Skrbina characterized PROUT as a "model of social development... which advocates a 'small is beautiful' approach to society." Economics instructor Mark Friedman places Sarkar's economic thought in the tradition of Monsignor John A. Ryan, E.F. Schumacher and Herman Daly in Sarkar's incorporation of spiritual values into economic goals. Sarkar positioned it as an alternative to communism and capitalism. It has been characterized as a form of "progressive socialism" as well as a "socialist theory". PROUT recognizes all material goods as common property and seeks the rational and equitable distribution of that property to maximize the physical, mental, and spiritual development of all people. It seeks to guarantee what it recognizes as the five minimum requirements of life for human beings: food, clothing, shelter, education, and medical care. PROUT describes a social order consisting of four classes of people that cyclically dominate society: shudras (labourers), kshatriyas (military–minded individuals), vipra (intellectuals) and vaishyas (capitalists). To prevent any social class from clinging to political power and exploiting the others, he proposed the concept of "spiritual elite" sadvipras (etymologically sad – true, vipra – intellectual) who would determine who held political leadership. Sarkar thought that the first sadvipras would be created from disgruntled middle class intellectuals and military-minded people. He called for sadvipras to be organized into executive, legislative, and judicial boards which would be governed by a Supreme Board. They, according to Sarkar, would be responsible for the application of force necessary to change the order of dominance within the social order, with large amounts of force akin to revolution. PROUT's economic model advocates a three-tiered approach to industrial organization where key industries or public utilities are non–profit, a decentralized industry run by sociolinguistic unions provide people's bare minimum necessities, and most of the economic transactions are through producers' and consumers' cooperatives. It distinguishes itself from communism by proposing an incentive based economy where surplus in the society is distributed to people who serve the society. At the political level, PROUT rejects nationalism and seeks the formation of a world government. Sarkar also supported the concept of a world army. Cooperative communities have been established by Ananda Marga in an attempt to provide ideal models for the society outlined in PROUT. A few intellectuals support the philosophy, but it has not achieved widespread implementation. Professor Narasingha P. Sil describes Sarkar's ideas of the social cycles that underlie PROUT as having "little originality or historical validity", having been derived "with some feeble adjustments" from traditional Hindu caste structure. Ravi Batra used the ideas of PROUT in his bestseller The Great Depression of 1990 and other books. In reviewing the book for the Los Angeles Times, economist Paul Erdman described the work as "a strange mixture of voodoo historical theories and sound economic analysis".

Hardware-Accelerated Global Illumination  by Image Space Photon Mapping
 
05:29
Image Space Photon Mapping (ISPM) rasterizes a light-space bounce map of emitted photons surviving initial-bounce Russian roulette sampling on a GPU. It then traces photons conventionally on the CPU. Traditional photon mapping estimates final radiance by gathering photons from a k-d tree. ISPM instead scatters indirect illumination by rasterizing an array of photon volumes. Each volume bounds a filter kernel based on the a priori probability density of each photon path. These two steps exploit the fact that initial path segments from point lights and final ones into a pinhole camera each have a common center of projection. An optional step uses joint bilateral upsampling of irradiance to reduce the fill requirements of rasterizing photon volumes. ISPM preserves the accurate and physically-based nature of photon mapping, supports arbitrary BSDFs, and captures both high- and low-frequency illumination effects such as caustics and diffuse color interreflection. An implementation on a consumer GPU and 8-core CPU renders high-quality global illumination at up to 26 Hz at HD (1920x1080) resolution, for complex scenes containing moving objects and lights.

Toxic Coal Ash Being Dumped in Puerto Rico, Which Already Suffers Worst Drinking Water in the Nation
 
07:55
https://democracynow.org - Even before Hurricane Maria struck the island nearly six months ago, the majority of Puerto Rico’s residents lived with water that violated health standards set by the U.S. law. Since the storm, residents say the situation has only gotten worse. Among the sources of potential water contamination are mountains of coal ash generated by a coal-fired power plant owned by a private company called AES. For years, residents have demanded the company stop dumping toxic coal ash into their community, saying the waste is poisonous to their health and the environment. We speak with Mekela Panditharatne, a lawyer with the Natural Resources Defense Council who just returned from the island and wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post headlined ”FEMA says most of Puerto Rico has potable water. That can’t be true.” Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

Scientists' Warning at Foresight Group, EU Commission
 
39:54
Please Subscribe and Share our http://ScientistsWarning.TV READ PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT NOTES THAT FOLLOW This presentation from November 5, 2018 was delivered to the 'Foresight Group' of the EU Commission in Brussels, Belgium. The assessment of our global prospects is extremely severe. The conclusions may be upsetting and perhaps life-changing for many. But the conclusions should not be taken in lightly. PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT NOTES I chose to keep this video in 'Unlisted' mode for 10 weeks because I felt that it would be a hard pill to swallow for most people, and that some emotional support needed to be provided when I finally presented it. Well, now is the time, and I think in a way the set of http://ScientistsWarning.TV programs I produced in Poland at COP-24 ARE the emotional support, especially the ones with Greta Thunberg, our little 'truth-teller' extraordinaire. So please watch them and Subscribe. Reality is quite a complex affair. I hold that we might achieve some measure of what is energetically referred to as 'redemption' if we (individually and collectively) were to 'repent' of our wasteful, abusive ways. I 'quote' those words since I don't want them to evoke the standard religious interpretations. I use them more in the sense of morally and energetically re-balancing our psyches in harmony with the natural world. So watch this video as a though it were an 'oracle' of one possible, perhaps probably future. Take the questions it raises seriously. Take them to 'heart', so to speak. Then be in your heart ('coeur' in French) with courage to face the future with equanimity, and perhaps change the future with your intention and your heart.

Book Club: Warrior IS - by Harley L. Zephier and Robin L. Zephier
 
06:21
The Greasy Grass Battle aka the Little Bighorn Battle on June 25, 1876 was an epic encounter and clash of cultures.The experience and display of warrior spirit resulted in the defeat of the Seventh Cavalry and Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer. The world has searched for the answers to the questions of “why”, “how” and “who else” was also on the hill known as Last Stand Hill. Our book WARRIOR IS provides the answers to these questions. The coming battle ignites global interest and intrigue, to become a lasting inspiration for books, historical documentation, and speculation.Hundreds of thousands of people from across the world will visit the site of the conflict. Tunkasila (Grandfather) was born in 1849 in He Sapa (the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota).His name is Mato Niyanpi (Saved By Bear), his culture is Mnincoju of the Lakota Nation. The origin of the Lakota begins with Wind Cave in He Sapa.It is here, where we left the Spirit world and entered the physical world of existence.We are Earth woman and Earth man in her honor, the keepers of the land.Co-existence with all life is Creator's asking.We believe in the hoop, or Circle of Life.All of Creator's beings are needed, and contribute to life on Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth).Our lands were pristine and pure, offering abundant sustenance.Reverence and respect were practiced by the human.A civilization with proven tradition and culture emerged. Tradition is the foundation of Lakota society.Mato Niyanpi would learn and grow with these teachings in body, mind, and spirit, thus becoming a member of certain warrior societies.He was a man connected to the Wakinyan (Thunder Beings), supported by ritual, medicine, and ceremony.Tunkasila chose his path in life, to walk with prayer and belief.Mato Niyanpi carried his Cannumpa (pipe) for peace and creation. A dark cloud would come over the Lakota Nation.The United States Government was preparing to remove the indigenous from their land.The judicial, executive, and legislative processes against the people began.Greed, profit, and possession of natural resources takes center stage politically.The government approach was executed with treaties.Negotiations between only selected tribal leaders, military, and designated officials ensued.The treaties were pieces of paper which were full of lies, deception, corruption, and were always broken.There was no benefit in their signing to the Lakota, or other tribal Nations. Gold was found in the Black Hills.This fueled a very emotionally charged Washington D.C.Drastic measures were proposed and approved, the final decision being genocide.The implementation of genocidal practice would threaten the very existence of the Lakota Nation.It would be recognizable in every part of their lives.Freedom of movement, subsistence, and most importantly, their prayer to Unci Maka, were being destroyed. The atrocities suffered by our relatives during this time frame were unimaginable.Confinement to reservations and agencies which were essentially prison camps; where starvation, disease, inhumane personal violations, torture, murder, and massacre were methods of deprivation.In defense, the Lakota and a number of related Tribal Nations would come together as one.Warriors talked, prayed, and decided to go to battle. Mato Niyanpi is called upon by his relatives, and Creator, to perform an act of commitment and courage.Tunkasila has a face-to-face confrontation with Custer on Last Stand Hill.Mato Niyanpi is the proud Lakota warrior who killed Lt. Col. George A. Custer.In the taking of his human presence from Unci Maka, Mato Niyanpi became, and continues to be, the Spirit Keeper of Custer.Creator called this union for our future together as human beings, living in peace, unity, tolerance and love SUPPORT THE PROGRAM ► Join us on Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/thomhartmann where you can also watch a re-run of the three hour program at any time AUDIO PODCASTS ► Subscribe today: http://www.thomhartmann.com/podcast FOLLOW THOM ► AMAZON : http://amzn.to/2hS4UwY ► BLOG : http://www.thomhartmann.com/thom/blog ► FACEBOOK : http://www.facebook.com/ThomHartmannProgram/ ► INSTAGRAM : http://www.instagram.com/Thom_Hartmann ► PATREON : http://www.patreon.com/thomhartmann ► TWITTER : http://www.twitter.com/thom_hartmann ► WEBSITE : http://www.thomhartmann.com ► YOUTUBE : http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thomhartmann ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Thom Hartmann Program is the leading progressive political talk radio show for political news and comment about Government politics, be it Liberal or Conservative, plus special guests and callers ✔ Amazon links are affiliate links

Dr  Phil Lawn on the three sectors of real resources
 
04:14
Dr. Phil Lawn, senior lecturer of ecological economics of Flinders University explains that real resources are divided into three sectors: primary (agriculture and mining), secondary (manufacturing) and tertiary (services). Many economists wrongly believe that mature, developed economies are based solely on the strength of the tertiary resource sector, or the amount of services produced. Dr. Lawn believes that a truly sound economy should be based on the strength of all three sectors. He goes on to mention that Japan has strong secondary and tertiary sectors but a weak primary sector, as it is heavily reliant on natural resource imports. A nation like Greece has only a weak tertiary sector, and virtually no primary or secondary sectors where as a nation like Australia has strong primary and tertiary sectors but a weak secondary sector. Because they both have strong primary sectors, Australia and Canada were able to avoid the worst of the global financial crisis due to them being able to export their natural resources to other countries. However, because Australia has a weak secondary sector, its economy isn’t booming either.

This year’s We Are Africa was our biggest yet, and the profile of the FUSE keynote speaker reflected not just the growing stature of the event but also the priorities of an increasingly eco-conscious high-end travel industry. Since becoming Botswana’s Minister of Environment, Natural Resources, Conservation and Tourism, Tshekedi Khama’s passion for sustainable tourism and the preservation of his country’s heritage have driven global recognition of his inspiring agenda. From spearheading a hunting ban and anti-poaching initiatives to encouraging local involvement in Botswana’s tourism industry, his passion for conservation is evident in everything he does: and his roof-raising FUSE 2018 keynote speech was no exception.

Agenda 21, Youth Indoctrination, and the impending Green Police
 
02:02
UN Agenda 21 and "sustainability" is a smoke screen for increasing complete control of privately-owned land, natural resources, energy production, and "lifestyle" under the authority of a global ruling elite. Agenda 21 is worldwide fascism (public-private partnership and corporate favoritism enforced by regulation and police) disguised as "environmental sustainablility", "good global citizenship", and "smart growth" for local communities. People will be coerced (thru discriminate taxation or zoning ordinances) to move to megacities, and all food production will eventually be controlled by government and multinational corporations. Over the last two decades, Western youth have slowly been indoctrinated into "green-thinking", and the promotion of social globalism (the worldwide re-distribution of wealth as "social justice")---rather than the defense of national sovereignty and individual liberty. Agenda 21 is the implementation of NWO global totalitarianism on the local, state, and federal level. check out LechDharma.wordpress.com and http://www.freedom21.org/principles.html for more information.

ENGOV, Environmental Governance in Latin America and the Caribbean
 
09:52
Environmental Governance in Latin America and the Caribbean: Developing Frameworks for Sustainable and Equitable Natural Resource Use ENGOV is a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission. The project focuses on the obstacles and possibilities for sustainable production systems that can generate both economic development and a more equitable knowledge input and distribution of benefits across ethnic, socioeconomic and gender lines in order to decrease poverty, exclusion, and environmental degradation in Latin America. The project's central objective is to understand how environmental governance is shaped in Latin America and to develop a new analytical framework for environmental governance in the region. In order to develop 'Latin American perspectives', the project is built up around two main aspects of environmental governance in the region: 1) the social context in which environmental governance is shaped, including historical, structural, institutional and information backgrounds; and 2) production systems and challenges to environmental justice. The nine themes of the research work packages are: Historicising unequal resource distribution Shifting elites and institutions in environmental governance Strategic actors and responsible consumption Building and exchanging knowledges on natural resources Analysing poverty and sustainable development Resource extraction conflicts compared Local solutions towards environmental justice Mitigation and adaptation to climate change Crossing boundaries in environmental governance The ENGOV project will start in March 2011 and will last four years. The project is coordinated by CEDLA and the consortium consists of the following institutions: CEDLA-UvA: Centre for Latin American Study and Documentation - Universiteit van Amsterdam, The Netherlands CLACSO: Consejo Latinoamericano de Ciencias Sociales, Argentina ICTA-UAB: Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals - Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain IRD: Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, France SUM-UiO: Centre for Development and the Environment - Universitetet i Oslo, Norway CDS-UnB: Centro de Desenvolvimento Sustentável - Universidade de Brasília, Brazil UAM-Xoc.: Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana - Xochimilco, Mexico IDEA-USACH: Instituto de Estudios Avanzados - Universidad de Santiago de Chile, Chile IIGG: Instituto de Investigaciones Gino Germani, Argentina UASB-SQ: Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar - Sede Quito, Ecuador Project Coordinator Dr. B.B.

Surfactants: Building greener chemicals - Science Nation
 
03:06
From cleaning supplies to pharmaceuticals, surfactants are the compounds that make your soap bubbly, your paint spread smoothly and your medication dissolve more easily. Surfactants can be found everywhere because of their unique dispersion ability that helps lower the repulsive forces between liquids and solids or two non-mixing liquids (think oil and water). Most surfactants are currently made from non-renewable petroleum sources and many of these surfactants don't breakdown easily after they are discarded. Some can persist in the environment for decades. Their widespread use and environmental persistence has raised concerns about toxicity. At the University of Arizona, Jeanne Pemberton and her cross-disciplinary team work to create new "green" surfactants based on sugars that are generally known as glycolipids. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Pemberton and her team are exploring the recent discovery of a versatile synthesis that allows production of many different types of glycolipids in large quantities. Some of these glycolipids are modeled after naturally occurring biosurfactants and some can be produced relatively inexpensively using renewable natural resources. Through computational methods, the team determines which glycolipids might have the most fitting surfactant properties as targets for synthesis and testing. Aside from potentially benefitting the environment and the economy, this project serves as a platform for the cross-disciplinary training of various types of researchers. These researchers include current postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, some of whom are participating in internships at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, as well as high school students and teachers engaging in green chemistry research and progressive green chemistry classroom curricula. The research is this episode was supported by NSF award #1339597, Molecular Design, Synthesis and Characterization of Green Glycolipid Surfactants. It was funded through the NSF/EPA program, Networks for Sustainable Molecular Design and Synthesis (NSMDS).

Panel discussion - Beyond carbon -- Curbing climate change, creating opportunity
 
59:05
B4E COP 17 Dialogue 2011 -- Durban Beyond carbon -- Curbing climate change, creating opportunity A dramatic reduction of carbon emissions is a necessary condition for curbing climate change. However, leading global companies recognise that economic and environmental sustainability also demand a holistic optimisation of natural resource use across different areas of their businesses. In this session, panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities of growing their businesses using climate-compatible strategies that go beyond carbon; to reduce waste, improve water stewardship as well as protect and leverage biodiversity and natural capital. Moderator: Jeremy Oppenheim, Director, Global Lead, Sustainability & Resource Productivity, McKinsey & Co. Scott Fleetwood, Executive Director, Government Policy and Affairs, Novus International Alison Hill, Global Health Policy Advisor, Verstergaard Frandsen Steve Lennon, Divisional Executive, Corporate Services, Eskom Chris Librie, Global Director, Environmental Initiatives, HP Samantha Smith, Leader, Global Climate & Energy Initiative, WWF International POWERING AHEAD FOR A CLEAN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION 6 December 2011 | Durban Botanical Gardens Progressive companies around the world are developing products and services that will revolutionise industries and deliver transformative change for society and our planet. These solutions are driving new business growth while significantly reducing emissions towards a low-carbon, sustainable future for all. Accelerating and scaling up implementation across sectors and borders, however, will require a higher level of collaboration than we have ever seen before, between business, government, and NGOs. The Business for the Environment (B4E) COP17 Dialogue aims to facilitate this, bringing stakeholders together to forge new partnerships and take real action on climate change. Leading the way and powering ahead for a clean industrial revolution.

Venezuela Speaks - August 2015
 
13:35
Helena Menéndez, press secretary of the Venezuelan Embassy, delivers a message to Progressive British workers at CPGB-ML's international BBQ, held at Saklatvala Hall in Southall, west London, on Saturday 25 July. She outlines the history of the last 15 years of struggle in Venezuela, who's basic meaning has been to use the vast wealth of Venezuela to improve the lives of the Venezuelan people. _____________________________________________________ Donate to help us produce higher-quality videos! https://www.gofundme.com/cpgbml _____________________________________________________ This is precisely why the progressive Venezuelan government has fallen foul of US imperialism, who's former president James Monroe openly declared his doctrine that European powers had no business in the Americas - for they were now the colonial possession of the USA. For almost 200 years this 'principle' has guided US policy, being re-asserted by the entire US establishment, including presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. Interestingly, Kerry mouthed a formal renunciation of the Monroe doctrine at the OAS in 2013, but it is absolutely clear from his speech, and from the ongoing actions of the US, throughout the Americas, that this was just a piece of 'soft power' window dressing, and that the USA has not changed its desire to enforce its status as regional (and indeed world) hegemon. As proof of this we need look no further than Venezuela, which is being subject to a relentless series of attacks designed to destabilise the progressive government. These economic attacks include, inter alia, hoarding of consumer goods to cause shortages and price rises; criminal racketeering to buy up subsidised goods and export them for sale in neighbouring countries (particularly Columbia); paramilitary incursions (particularly from Columbia) into Venezuelan territory; and a program of US led and enforced sanctions upon the progressive leadership of Venezuela, that may well escalate into a full US economic embargo (Blockade) of Venezuela. All this comes at a time when falling oil prices - also due to US manipulation of oil producing nations, encouraging overproduction and low prices - are also hitting Venezuela's income hard. A good article on the question can be read here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/mystery-behind-dropping-oil-prices-solved-concerted-market-manipulation/5430117 All of these measures are designed to be ramped up in the approach to Venezuela's parliamentary elections being held on 6th December 2015, are designed to send a brutally frank message to the Venezuelan people: come to heel, accept our economic dominance, and allow us to plunder your natural resources, or we will not let you enjoy the fruits of an egalitarian society in peace. The Venezuelan government led by President Maduro and the PSV are taking determined measures to counter the US attacks, and are confident they will secure victory and the breathing space to improve the lives of their people still further. Helena points to many of the institutions founded by Chavez, such as the Bolivarian Bank, Petrocaribe and ALBA which have a stabilising regional influence and that remain his egalitarian legacy, making Latin America very different place today. However while a wealth compradore elite continues to act in concert with the US, as the 'enemy within' Venezuela, the entire model of the Bolivarian revolution bears within itself the seeds of possible defeat. We wish the Venezuelan people well in securing a path to securing and consolidating the people's ownership of all their sources of natural and industrial wealth. Excellent speeches were also given by Jorge Luis Garcia, Councillor of the Cuban Embassy and Hyon Hak Bong, the DPR Korean ambassador to the UK. Follow the links below to see their speeches. Each of these countries, stands on the front line of the anti-imperialist struggle, and delivers a message of solidarity from their anti-imperialist, progressive and socialist movements, peoples and governments. British workers have much to learn from the workers of these countries about how to build and maintain a movement for social emancipation.
