Welcome to my page illustrating the many aspects of our collective Global Warming problem and what I hope to be helpful information regarding alternative energy and carbon-footprint reducing ideas.
We Humans have invented our own new geologic epoch called the Anthropocene. The Himalayan glaciers are melting. The Ocean’s waters are rising. And the acidity of the water is increasing. There is a mass extinction occurring now referred to as “The Great Die-Off.”
The delicate balance which moderated the weather of our planet is breaking down.

Peak Oil and the Outlook for Oil Supply and Demand
“I am recently retired from full-time teaching computer science and engineering at the University of Washington Tacoma, School of Engineering and Technology (was Institute of Technology). But my background is quite a bit broader. I have a PhD in CS, an MBA in Decision Science, and a baccalaureate in Zoology (with substantial coursework in math, chemistry, and oceanography) from the Seattle campus of UW.
My textbook on Systems Science, with co-author Michael Kalton was published by Springer in 2015. Recently I have been appointed as Editor-in-Chief for the International Federation for Systems Research book series (also published by Springer): Systems Science and Engineering.
For a time, in a prior life (pre-PhD) I managed a medium-sized electronics design and manufacturing company in Southern California, so I have some real-world management experience (successful if I do say so myself).
My first real love in the world of academics is actually biology and specifically evolutionary, cognitive, neuro-psychology! In other words I wonder how the brain works to produce the mind and how did it come about through evolution. I have dabbled in computer models of brain-like systems to control robots. See my academic website for more information.

Understanding the energy economy of the world we have, and the world we need.
“It’s really difficult to have a sense of energy and material at the same time we are thinking about the economy. In the newspaper you read every day about the economy – but it never really discusses the material foundations of economic activity, it’s mostly on the very abstract monetary level – profits and losses. That’s the way we have been taught to consider the economy, and it’s a huge task to change how we think.”

Dan Britt – Orbits and Ice Ages: The History of Climate
Published on Feb 8, 2012
“Another lecture in IHMC’s award winning lecture series. http://www.ihmc.us
Climate change has become a major political issue, but few understand how climate has changed in the past and the forces that drive climate. Most people don’t know that fifty million years ago there were breadfruit trees and crocodiles on the shores of the Arctic Ocean, or that 18,000 years ago there was a mile-thick glacier on Manhattan and a continuous belt of winter sea ice extending south to Cape Hatteras. The History of Climate provides context of our current climate debate and fundamental insight how the climate works.
Dr. Daniel Britt is a Professor of Astronomy and Planetary Sciences at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida. He was educated at the University of Washington and Brown University, receiving a Ph.D. from Brown in 1991. He has had a varied career including service in the US Air Force as an ICBM missile launch officer and an economist for Boeing before going into planetary sciences. He has served on the science teams of two NASA missions, Mars Pathfinder and Deep Space 1. He was the project manager for the camera on Mars Pathfinder and has built hardware for all the NASA Mars landers.
Britt currently does research on the physical properties and mineralogy of asteroids, comets, the Moon, and Mars under several NASA grants. Honors include 5 NASA Achievement Awards, election as a Fellow of the Meteoritical Society, and an asteroid named after him; 4395 Dan Britt. He is currently President of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. He lives in Orlando with his wife Judith.

Marcia Bjornerud: Timefulness, Geology for Saving the World
Published on Oct 4, 2018
“As climate change rapidly accelerates into what long time Pirate TV guest, Dahr Jamail recently called the “end game”, the amount of ignorance of this fact is nothing short of remarkable. This is not only testament to the power of propaganda generated by the richest and most powerful corporations in human history but of the dumbing down and general scientific illiteracy of the US public. Few people have any idea that the knowledge that enables scientists to generate the computer models that predict what is happening to the climate now comes from the study of mass extinction events that happened in Earth’s ancient past. This knowledge comes from geology– mostly the study of ice cores, rock cores, and sediment layers. This is not taught in schools unless you specifically take a geology class although it should be. It is also not something you are likely to encounter on your corporate brainwash tube.
Few of us have any conception of the enormous timescales of our planet’s long history. Geology professor and Fulbright Scholar Marcia Bjornerud outlines the ways in which our everyday lives are shaped by processes that vastly predate us—and in turn, how our habits will have consequences that will outlast us by generations. With insight from her book Timefulness: How Thinking Like a Geologist Can Help Save the World she reveals how knowing the rhythms of Earth’s deep past and conceiving of time as a geologist can give us the perspective we need for creating a more sustainable future. Join Bjornerud for a literal history of the world, and a treatise for building a more time-literate and ecologically considerate society.

“Steven Starr is a medical laboratory technician [MT ( ASCP) ] , scientific program director of the clinical laboratory at the University of Columbia, Missouri. He obtained his degree at the School of Health Professions in 1985 and has worked in many hospitals for 27 years.
Mr Starr is a member of Physicians for Social reponsibility , and the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. His writings are published by several organizations, including the Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, and has worked with several foreign governments and the UN to the elimination of nuclear weapons. He is also an expert in the field of environmental consequences of war and nuclear weapons.
In this video, he exposes us to the deleterious properties of the radioactive materials generated by nuclear accident , especially the infamous cesium 137, which has significantly contaminated Japan after the Fukushima catastrophe . This is the deadly poisons at the atomic or molecular level. Their activity is millions of times greater than that of some natural isotopes in the environment such as potassium 40. As compare a stick of dynamite in an atomic bomb !
The second point is data contamination official of Japan, which do not correspond to some independent scientific studies , and certainly not to the reality of the situation on the ground .

It then discusses the dangers induced by multiplying by 20 the permitted level , and the controversial method used to calculate the biological effects of ionizing radiation , expressed in Sieverts .
Steven Starr then cites scientific research of Prof. Bandazhevsky , phenomena of bioaccumulation in ecosystems , increased fragility of children and especially girls to the effects of radioactivity, and overall poor health status of young people in our days in areas contaminated by the Chernobyl accident areas.

James Howard Kunstler – Too Much Magic
Published on Aug 23, 2014
“James Howard Kunstler discusses some of the issues raised in his books The Long Emergency (2005)
and Too Much Magic (2013), examining how the global crises in energy, the economy and the environment have unfolded in the interim.
The last two hundred years have seen the greatest explosion of progress and wealth in the history of mankind, but the age of oil that fuelled this expansion is rapidly coming to an end. The depletion of fossil fuels is about to transform life as we know it, and do so much sooner than we think. Kunstler explains what to expect after we pass the tipping point of peak oil production, setting out to prepare us for economic, political, and social changes on an unimaginable scale.” – as quoted on the youtube platform.

World in Danger: the Fukushima-California Connection
Published on Jan 5, 2016
“Arnie Gundersen, Chief Engineer of Fairewinds Associates gave an interesting presentation on the dangers of radiation at Sunrise Center in Corte Madera, California on November 23, 2015.
Have you wondered why people are still talking about Fukushima? Have you ever wondered what implications Fukushima has for California and for the Diablo Nuclear power plant? Because of the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the one that was caused by the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, is not over and remains dangerous.
Three molten nuclear reactor cores are still missing and the radioactive contamination that this 300-ton mass of “corium” continues to generate and release shows no signs of abating, in fact is increasing.
Join us as Arnie Gundersen, a dedicated and informed expert, sits down to ‘unpack’ what happened in Fukushima, how it came to happen, what’s going on there now, and what we might still be able to do about it.
(The previous posting was audio only, due to technical issues. This presentation includes complete video of the event.) Video by Enlightened Films.”

How does a hydrogen fuel cell work? / ¿Cómo funciona una pila de hidrógeno?
Published on May 5, 2015
Ajusa Hydrogen Technologies. H2 and O2 (hydrogen and oxygen), are stable gases in normal conditions, but in the electrodes anode and cathode of a fuel cell, the presence of catalyst activate these fluids that initiates the chemical reaction at room temperature. So, in anode, hydrogen atoms in contact with catalyst, are split into electrons and protons, instantly. In cathode, protons, electrons and oxygen from air, when at the same time contact the catalyst, merge together into water molecules.
Ajusa Tecnologías del Hidrógeno. H2 y O2 (hidrógeno y oxígeno), son gases estables en condiciones normales, pero en los electrodos, ánodo y cátodo de una pila de combustible, la presencia de catalizador activa estos fluidos que inicia la reacción química a temperatura ambiente. Entonces, en el ánodo, los átomos de hidrógeno en contacto con el catalizador, se dividen en electrones y protones al instante. En el cátodo, los protones, los electrones y el oxígeno del aire, cuando al mismo tiempo entran en contacto con el catalizador, se fusionan en moléculas de agua.

“Every Bluefin Tuna tested in the waters off California has shown to be contaminated with radiation that originated in Fukushima. Every single one.
Stanford Report, May 30th., 2012
Tuna caught off California carry radiation from the Japanese disaster, Stanford scientist finds.
“The spill left behind two radioactive isotopes of cesium. One was previously undetectable in the ocean off the California coast, and the other had previously existed only in very low levels in radiation left behind from the fallout of atmospheric tests of nuclear weapons.”
“It is among the most problematic of the short-to-medium-lifetime fission products because it easily moves and spreads in nature due to the high water solubility of Caesium’s most common chemical compounds, which are salts.”

The Anthropocene is a proposed epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on the Earth’s geology and ecosystems, including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change.
“Bangladesh is now widely recognized to be one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change.”
