Playing For Change

Peace

Not gonna say much this time…

Want to {always want to} encourage and uplift…

Can you remember?

Singing your troubles away…

Dancing through the pain…

Loving because You  are Love

Let’s join musicians around the world and
Be the Change

All these videos are from Playing for Change:


Stand By Me

One Love

Don’t Worry

Spiritual Quote:

Henceforward we shall always be together, heart and soul and spirit, pressing forward in the work till all men are gathered together under the tent of the Kingdom, singing the songs of peace.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 40

So, What Is The Truth ?

I’ve spent quite a bit of time recently doing what that man in the picture could be imagined to be doing–praying…

I’ve finally decided on a definite Direction for this blog.

I don’t wear a tie anymore.

I don’t sit in leather chairs, either.

And, I certainly don’t wish to demean anyone for their clothes or furniture, but to powerfully invoke the Sameness in each of us when we get down to our basic Human Necessities…

Anyone who doesn’t think attention to God and His Scriptures is the way to guide one’s life–whether Hindu, Buddhist, Sabian, Zoroastrian, Jewish, Christian, Islamic, or other Major recipients of God’s Wisdom–might think my change in direction to be less than “profitable”.

What is “Profit”?

I’ll choose an extremely appropriate definition from WordWeb:

“The advantageous quality of being beneficial”

I wish my blog to be beneficial. I wish to provide the clearest indication of TRUTH that I can find. I wish to aid my fellow human beings to the maximal extent of my ability.

So, stay tuned…

I intend to raise the entire discussion to the level of Principle.

I intend to give you the Best information I can find!


How to Talk to a Climate Skeptic

“O ye peoples of the world! Know, verily, that an unforeseen calamity is following you…”

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 209

~~~~~~~~~

My last post was based on what I consider to be truth. However, one study by one organization may not be convincing to those who (for various reasons…) deny there’s a global climate crisis.

So, to add more ingredients to the soup, here are a comment from one of the world’s most popular blogs,  a complete catalog of responses to denialists from an environmental news and commentary blog, and a link to an actual brick-and-mortar institution that focuses on the earth’s climate.

Cory Doctorow at BOINGBOING:

“Have you noticed that whenever you mention climate change online a bunch of people show up with identical objections — almost as though there was a list of talking points somewhere on the Internet that astroturfers and denialists used to derail discussions of the most grave existential crisis facing the human race today?”

He then quotes GRIST:

“Below is a [set of links to] the articles in “How to Talk to a Climate Skeptic,” a series by Coby Beck containing responses to the most common skeptical arguments on global warming. There are four separate taxonomies; arguments are divided by:”

* Stages of Denial
* Scientific Topics
* Types of Argument
* Levels of Sophistication


And, for those enamoured by a more scientific approach:

The Worldwatch Institute is an independent research organization known around the world for its accessible, fact-based analysis of critical global issues. Worldwatch research is the gold-standard for sustainability analysis for decision makers in government, civil society, business, and academia.”
