This Saturday - Day of Action against Fracking - Moving Planet NYC Rally

CDOG /un-naturalgas.org invites you to join the
DAY OF ACTION  SEPTEMBER 24, 2011

We are not upstate / downstate. We are not city / country. We are all watersheds, all people, all ecosystems.

We are UNITED against drilling.
On September 24, 2011, throughout the day, communities across NYS and beyond will demonstrate, each in their own unique way and with their own local focus, their opposition to the intensively industrializing process of extracting ‘natural’ gas that threatens the environmental and economic well-being of all residents.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About The Event

Moving Planet is a worldwide rally to move beyond fossil fuels. All over the world, people will take to the streets on bicycles, roller skates, skateboards, on foot and on any other sustainable form of transit they can dream up. We will demonstrate to our governments that a global consensus has formed: we are ready for a world after fossil fuels.

In New York City, we're organizing dozens of community marches and bike rides all over the five boroughs. You can find a march or ride in your neighborhood or create a new one 
These marches begin from noon on and will converge on a 2PM rally at the United Nations' Dag Hammarskjold Plaza on 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues in Manhattan.
We'll be joined by top climate scientist Dr. James Hansen, a delegation of indigenous leaders from around the world, local climate leaders like Colin Beavan ("No Impact Man"), and special guests.

The UN General Assembly will be in session at that time debating important resolutions just 2 months before the UN climate summit in Durban and in the critical run-up to Rio +20. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our movement to both US and world leaders, and to demand real climate solutions!

NYC Moves!

The construction crew threw out your sign. They claimed they knew nothing about the gardening project.

I returned to the Pupin Hall frontal garden area setting this morning where I had evaluated and measured the matter of the missing signs and the construction crew comments about knowing nothing about the Sustainable Development[Global] signs relating to the ongoing gardening and agricultural review and testing creation with the 'postage stamp' garden plots throughout the garden area.
I discovered with the help of sunlight that two signs were moved, intact, to lean against the northwest corner of the Shapiro Center[computing] as part of the Uris Business School building by the rear service entrance. The two signs appeared in good and readable condition.
Comment: The prior signs' placement just because on the entryway to the garden area was very and readily viewable by most persons visiting the garden area or the whole plaza. The new location for the two signs is not and rather difficult to see for observation. Given the significant importance of global food and general sustainability, I'd suggest a sign placement at a more readily and frequently seen spot. Thanks for making and keeping the signs wherever they are!!

On another note .... Over the weekend visited Central Park. One matter I noticed was a certain lack of, uh, "bathrooming" facility. We face knowingly a burgeoning and vast growing "cohort" of SENIOR CITIZENS. While I am, thankfully, NOT part of the "PULLUPS" crew, yet, from time to time I realize even I face some of those inevitable "senior moments" of praying to arrive at the "THRONE" soon enough!!
Central Park has WATER FOUNTAINS on nearly every other corner. But, and I reiterate, there seem to be only about 4 or 5 "bathrooming" stations for the whole park.
For dogs one must use the classic "pooperscooper". But what do old people who need to, uh, pee require?
Should the over 60 set now carry zip lock bags for that little yellow stream of .... pee? Is that sustainable?? Is that fair??
I only pose and ask the question!!
Thanks.

Also, during my weekend Central Park jaunt I enjoyed a good morning chat with one of the "Central Park Conservancy" workers. The Conservancy is now responsible for nearly all Park general upkeep and maintenance needs.
I talked with a worker who was performing the morning "pickup trash" activity both from the depository containers as well as just the bits and pieces from the grounds.
My concern was (1) was trash separated to paper, plastic, and glass|metal, or NOT; (2) is there any attempt to sort out all the garbage so that useable or rehabable items tossed to the trash can be recovered as a result of optimized and constrained asset allocations and resourcing; and (3) are any provisions planned for composting which is successfully pursued with the winter holiday tree chipping services.
Basically, the answer was NO for all three of my questions.
I then commented on a recent evaluation trip I spent at Harlem Hospital Center where I researched optimized resources on patient food trays. HHC uses "sporks", those odd ball combination plastic fork|spoons or spoons with a serrated outer end.
Each hospital meal tray came with 2 sporks. Most folks used only one. By the time I left a large, pantry drawer was filled to overflowing with sporks.
My comment was that sooner or later we could go mountaineering on "Mt. Spork" in the middle of the Staten Island landfill with so many extra and, it seems, unneeded sporks. The Nature Conservancy person suggested that with so many sporks we'd actually need O2 while climbing "Mt. Spork".
Well, bravo and huzzah for that. But, I ask, what kind of hiking shoe or boot is needed for the slippery mess of mountaineering our grand "Mt. Spork"??

One typical concept from sustainability science is the old favorite, carbon footprint. How BIG is your CARBON FOOTPRINT?? My past Thursday: Beginning of day = Morning prayer, hmmm, "0"?? All right ..... Washcolth washup & teeth, about 1.5 quart of "gray water". Dress and "potty", 6 pieces TP and 2 quarts H2O. B'fast: 2 pieces whole wheat bread = pro rata share of plastic bread loaf bag, 3 mini plastic pat of margarine "tubs", 1 0.75 ounce p'nut butter mini plastic tub, 4 ounces OJ pro rata juice carton, 3 non nutritive sweetner paper packets, 16 ounces milk pro rata from plastic gallons, other miniscule pro rata [instant coffee, etc.]. This was less than a palm full of trash in total.
The rest of the day was about the same. And I walked about 5 miles for transportation.
So, I think my carbon footprint was reasonably acceptable.
For comparison: I observed some folks who bought "super coffees" from a coffee bar chain. 3 people ....
Each had a large "paper cup" of from 12 to 16 ounces with a big dombed plastic cover atop inside a plastic bag inside a paper bag with a BIG wad of napkins. Well, you may decide the "sustainability"; I only report. Make your own judgements and conclusions BUT extrapolate to the, what, 6 BILLION neighbors we all share on PLANET EARTH.

My lost HAT is not yet located or returned. This is not surprising. The super at my building has a history of "sticky fingers". I do not know if his purloining of things is of his own initiative or at the behest of someone or a group of someone others. Since it was my ISRAELI DAY Parade "ALEPH" Hat, I suppose, unhappily, it is only another typical case of religious hatred. What else is new in the world?? BUT, as a sustainability issue, where then is the big pile of stolen HATS and so on. Good question, I say!!

I did say, I think, that in light of a missing hat and recognizing much sustainability research involves field research in the HOT sun, I'd speak to matters of excess heat and sun exposures. This is easy as I did volunteer work at a nursing home for a number of years. And each spring went the rounds about such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion. [Thank you Ms. Guerrera, RN]
Generally, the BIG three heat disorders in order of stress level low to high are HEAT CRAMPS, HEAT EXHAUSTION, and HEAT STROKE. A typical and reasonably complete statement of such is at:
http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/disaster/factsheets/pdf/heatstress.pdf

The moral of the story, if planning to be in the sun outside for any length of time, for one thing, wear a HAT. From my experience, just be careful not to lose the HAT for as given: NO HAT, NO PROTECTION!!
Behatted for all, always,

I have heard many times that the growing deforestation in the Amazon River basin holds poor prospects for the long term regarding overall sustainable air quality for the whole western hemisphere. A good friend is modelling forest vegetation dynamics and impacts on watersheds using a statistical model either indexed or summed with the Fibonacci sequence. It is regularly reputed that the IDEAL case of tree growth does follow the Fibonacci pattern. Does anyone know if this is really true?? Of course, Fibonacci is the additive sequence: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ....

This morning was, it seems, NYC Department of Sanitation pickup day for parts of the City including West 110th Street at Broadway and traveling East. I was waiting during early morning [~6:45AM] outside the "Columbia School" just East from D'Agostino's Market on the South Side of West 110th Street. There presented were two huge mini-mountains of trash and garbage. I looked through them to evaluate the whole MESS and discovered amongst lots and lots and lots of trash and garbage 24 completely empty FAMIGLIA large pizza boxes. They were, at least, completely empty. So I can't suggest good food going into the garbage.
An aside, for example, one time I found a CEASAR's pizza box with nearly half an uneaten pizza in it. Why, I do not know. I did take a few bites of perfectly good, clean pizza; it tasted great to me. I guess it was just diet day at the pizza party!!
But, as I checked the FAMIGLIA pizza boxes, an Officer from the NYC Department of Sanitation happened by to look to see if the bundled trash and garbage were sorted to NYC standards. They were with paper separated from bottles|glass|foil from general trash. So, no ticket was issued. And the Sanitation Officer [see: SEIU Local 444, the Sanitation Officers Association 'Leading the Way' at ==> https://www.local444seiu.com] was a little encouraged that sorting was done even with no recovery process.
My own curiosity was piqued when I counted 24[TWENTY FOUR], as I said, EMPTY boxes. Isn't there some reuse for pizza boxes? If not, isn't a better container with less environmental impact available? Gee whiz, SUKKOT is coming. One could even build a temporary shelter from empty pizza boxes and cover same with environmentally friendly polymerized soy "plastic" for rainproofing. [Kosher Pizza Village; Halleluyeh!!]
I continued with my sampling time and discovered one completely sound and usable wooden kitchen chair which I sat on for a short time to ascertain its safety, a great little wooden chair[the "Columbia School" security were even concerned regarding the lovely wooden chair and asked if it were mine ....]. I do not know what happened to the chair. I could not, surely, carry it in my back pack.
But, I did discover a full sized, full pair of bright yellow, "Mrs. Groton's Fishsticks", foul weather gear. I located a tossed "Dehraduni Basmati Rice" SWAD Carry Bag and put the gear therein for carrying. Hey, for my morning efforts I RECOVERED a full pair of foul weather gear, jacket and pants, as well as the SWAD Carry Bag. [If only I'd found at least one piece of cold pizza for breakfast with all this morning's project and activity.]
As I finished with my evaluation, two dedicated member of the Uniformed Sanitation Men's Association Local 831 worked hard to clean all that stuff from the sidewalk. They allowed me to take pictures of the mess and their wonderful, educationally painted trash truck.
Following, I was uplifted and inspired by morning prayer Shacharit worship at the Congregation Ramath Orah Synagogue adjoining the "Columbia School" property. Not a bad morning at all except for all the tossed, unsorted, and unrecovered "trash and garbage"!![pictures will be posted later today with linkage given here]

I was contacted through channels by a HENRY GREENBERG who, it seems, has spent many years as an academic researcher at the medical center and college faculty levels. It seems his question evolves to matters dealing with inner city public health and mental health care settings.
Some years ago I spent quite some time working directly in such settings as homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food pantries, "clothes closets", psychosocial "prayer breakfasts", and the like providing educational and social outreach to such populations while concurrently assessing and evaluating public health data.
Towards needs of sustainability, this is important in that these mostly not well educated nor scientifically sophisticated groups of people thus are for the better part completely ignorant of and insensitive to general matters of sustainability.
So, I surely encourage HENRY GREENBERG to take advantage of the many readily discovered and easily volunteered positions available all throughout Manhattan and all of New York City to first hand for himself go out and meet and learn about and from these people. I did and now understand the extensions but also limits of publicity and media to reach the unexposed regarding global sustainability and its overwhelming importance to everyone who lives on our PLANET EARTH!!

Hey, what do you see .... there are no dates on these notes. What calendar shall we use? Oh, heck, today I'll use the Jewish calendar; it's Friday 5772 He Kaf Sivan [June 15, 2012].
Last night I spent invited to observe goings on at a Chassidic wedding in Boro Park, Brooklyn, as part of a research study I am conducting on the cultural ethnography of New York indigenous tribal milieu communities and their customs, traditions, totems, representative mores, and iconographic values.
With sensitivity to the insular nature of the Chassidim, I took no pictures of the wedding.
However, on visiting an all night prayer Schule, I can say they do not sort their garbage or trash. Everything from organic matter to paper, plastic, metal, and glass is smooched messily all together in the typical BIG black plastic bags!!
I hope to cover more of New York City's indigenous neighborhood tribal milieu communities as well as, I pray, another visit to the Chassidim of Boro Park.

This is a bit beyond the "tomorrow" of the last comment. But, then, in "Annie", the "Little Orphan" opines "tomorrow, tomorrow; I'll love you, tomorrow. It's always a day away."
Lovely thought, and I would have to say the time measure 'til tomorrow is in fact variable based on the clock, the time standard, and even the religion used for the "tomorrow" of "tomorrow", so said!!
Back to what was to be given "on the 'morrow'", being some history of how, why, goings on, and later developments with what is now definitively named "SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT".
I think my first memories so related are of my grandmother, Mrs. Frances York, reminding me to clean my meal plates leaving no food because there were "starving people" [somewhere]. Places like China, India, Africa, and the Asian Pacific Islands, say Bora Bora, were mentioned. She never explained to me exactly HOW my leftover Friday night Boston Baked Bean, onion glazed chops, cole slaw, and homemade biscuits dinner OR Sunday noon 5 course roasted turkey celebration starting with herb crouton garnished baked squash soup, stuffed celery sticks with sliced olives, crudite and dips plate, hot Parquet dinner rolls and homemade baking powder biscuits, sweet butter, roasted turkey with giblets gravy, baked and mashed potato, butternut and hubbard squashes, baked onions, cole slaw, garden salad, mashed turnip or rutabaga, and lots of savory stuffing followed by assorted pies like pumpkin, minced meat, apple, custard, rhubarb, and strawberry w|wo French Vanilla ice cream ala mode and completing the meal with coffee or tea with cookies would transport to wherever. Needless to say, there were always lots of leftovers. I think Mimi, my grandmother Frances' nickname, kept most in her freezer. Surely, all that food for me, an only child, and my parents, also both only children, and Mimi was too, too much for one sitting regardless the deliciosity ratio.
But Mimi's heart was surely in the right place just thinking about hungry people over the globe and teaching me about it, too!!
Oh, after that rehash of Mimi's weekly family dinners, I'd love a nice hot piece of turkey with a homemade biscuit. Mazel tov!!

The next thing I recall from my youth about a topic of "SUSTAINABLE DEVLOPMENT" was THE RUMMAGE SALES.
My parents belonged to a community organized, almost like a nautical commune or kibbutz, boating or yacht club. Being rather a self started, self help, "boot strapped" sort of production, this club dedicated to issues of seamanship, nautical lore, sailing, navigation, and the like, held fund raising events. Spaghetti or beef stew or baked bean dinners happened at least once a week through the summer and about monthly during wintertime.
But, what I really remember for fun fund raising were the RUMMAGE SALES. These were more or less a form of "gently used clothing" exchange with some nominal cash intermediacy, cash going to the club general fund. I remember many "new" sweaters, winter coats, blouses, boots, and so on usually "costing" somewhere from $0.25 to $2.50 from these remarkable and entertaining events. All the members and their spouses helped out with kiddies there, too. And usually just about everyone returned home with some new fashion particular; all this being a very, very productive use of available and substantive wearable resources.
As a younger child I simply understood I had "new" clothes for just about "free"!!
So, my childhood times with these along with efforts like GIRL SCOUT Cookie Sales and YW and Red Cross community education events and classes headed me right in the direction of "wise use and protection of immediate resources" OR what we now know as "SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT".
My next entry will pick up with the Woodstock and 'Whole Earth Catalogue' era of 'organic and natural' resource philosophies and practices.

Hmm, I know that I said my next comment would go to that historic and well known musical event from the past known as WOODSTOCK and matters so related, BUT then I did remember another episode from my younger years that touches on SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. About my last year of what was then called JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL being the 8th grade or maybe FRESHMAN HIGH SCHOOL, 9th grade, the issue of TOMATOES came up.
I like and have always much preferred and liked FRESH tomatoes. There is really nothing quite like the taste of ripe, freshly picked, still sun warmed FRESH tomatoes!!
Our local grocer usually stocked little plastic trays of 4 or 5 "modernized" tomatoes with .... absolutely NO flavor or taste. As a matter of fact what they tasted like was newsprint with some ketchup drizzled through slightly. Well, maybe not quite that bad but perhaps you see my point.
So, I decided to grow a plot of tomatoes.
That long ago experience may have been why the Sustainability Gardens on the Pupin Hall||Northwest Corner Building Plaza so readily caught my eye. They immediately brought back grand memories of my youthful agricultural endeavors first started with the TOMATO PROJECT. I guess I could call the Columbia gardeners my, well a slight stretch, grandchildren. OMG, I just do not feel quite that old. My mind still works. My body is actually pretty good. And I'm training to power walk the November NYC Marathon with a good friend from the Synagogue. But still, yes, it's been that many, all those years I remember.....
Back to the tomato patch of my youth. I had never planted vegetables, a few flower varieties, but no food, vegetables. And our small semisuburban lawn area had never been used for -- vegetable or any other gardening.
Well, I went to and read ALL ABOUT TOMATOES in the community library encyclopaedias and its reference sections. Then, I visited the local discount store. I think it may have been a Woolworth's 5 & Dime. I bought some Beefsteak tomato seeds in packets that looked big and good and juicy in the pictures.
I'll continue with the planting and growing next time.
Always yours,
Elyas

We have a problem!! There's a bit of a drought, and some of the garden is drying up, mini "desertifying". My plan ere was to go chronologically. But, an emergency will demand attention. So ...
Back about 1983 or 4, I was living very close to the Canadian border in northern Vermont with affiliations to nearby IBM and Digital E.C. computer research sites as well as the University of Vermont. I was doing work with the ACM as well as field research for math topics.
My colleague and I improved a long neglected but clear 3 acre lot for subsistence, intensive gardening. Three points, we used RAISED BEDS which protect delicate plant root structures and allow ready mulching; a nearby horse stable routinely composted the manure and made it available free to neighbors which held moisture in the soil; and we used flat canvas "drip" feed hosing, on 24 hours per day for a very slow but constant feed of water to the plants. They all thrived and prospered!!

Hello, all!! It's been quite some time since I've been able to contribute to this blog. It is not that I have not wished to do so. But, I've somehow been caught up in many, many, many strange and convoluted field projects.

A few words for today ..... currently at the United Nations, I serve on several NGO committees mostly having to do with health and mental health and their counterpart systemic needs.

Being a life long proponent of sustainable development, I always do try to assure such "sustainability goals" are embedded in my philosophy and working practice actions when faced with them heresoto.

One matter drawing my attention right now is women in the [Manhattan] public health sector whose needs are truly under or completely unserved.

Questions to ask are:
What is competent housing support? What is adequate food and nutrition supply and provision? What exercise and psychosocial supports are needed to offer basic life and enriched sociomiliue services and resources?

These and many other questions are of paramount importance as the world and in the microcosm, the Manhattan community, face the overwhelming challenge of providing responsive, comprehensive, and competent answers to them.

Hello,

Not that long ago I was walking along West 33rd Street not far from where I was staying at that time and just east of 7th Avenue. I happened past the Statler Grill which was advertising an event featuring a local loud mouthed DJ who claimed to protect the local community from everything. Needless to say, such a pipsqueak of intellect and ability could not protect anyone from much of anything.

I work with the New York State Department of Health's ServNY program for voluntary, community based health and science professional and experts who serve the public needs and interests. My specialties are emergencies and disasters for the nuclear sciences and water and water course matters. And I knew for sure that this DJ had not been anywhere near the real and tragically horrible problems we faced during Hurricane Sandy(see above link). And I also knew if Indian Point Power Plant, NYC's nuclear, electricity producing facility, were to face anything like the Fukishima, Japan, plant meltdown, this DJ would be nowhere near the emergency site and would probably be trembling at home listening to someone like Anderson Cooper responsibly reporting the facts as they happened while I and my colleagues were trying to eliminate the emergency.

So, right there and then I walked right into the Statler Grill and shouted out, "what about nuclear disasters and disruptions to the public water supply. You do NOT protect us from them!!"

Thereupon was I almost carried out the door by two socalled "security guards" [for the DJ] who called me crazy and "threatened to call the NYPD" to have me "put away". Well, that they did -- they called the police. Honorable, trustworthy, and dedicated NYPD Officer McFadden responded quickly. He approached me and asked what was wrong. I showed him my New York Academy of Sciences and New York Academy of Medicine identifying badges and explained exactly what had happened. He generously apologized for the problem and then asked if I'd ever called this DJ's radio show. I said had I any problems needing such "important" addressal, I'd quickly contact either the President's Office at the Academy of Sciences or the Academy of Medicine, both of which know about me and my areas of expertise.

Well, with kind NYPD Officer McFadden's blessings I continued on my way. I did mention that I met very briefly with NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly early last summer with a question about emergency needs at Indian Point Nuclear Plant. And for the record, I have worked locally for many years on needs with public health and mental health in the local Manhattan Community. So, on more than one occasion I have, in fact, worked directly with the NYPD and its precinct council system.

All in a day's work in Manhattan and New York City!!

Peace and Shalom,

Yours,

HELLO,

I am trying to post a .pdf file of about 1200KB to my global health and mental health blog on "MDJunction" called THE GLOBAL BURDEN OF DISEASE authored by Dr. Mary Palshaw of Yale University. The max .pdf allowed is 200KB.

This is a need for the United Nations NGO Committee on Health helping to advance policies to end abuse of pregnant women and mothers throughout sub Saharan Africa and also supporting the building of an engineering school to help the medical school at Lagos, Nigeria, all using the native languages of the countries and regions being served.

How can I shrink the .pdf at 1200KB+ to 200KB or under?

Also, some incompetent Manhattan based community mental health organization likes to think this is all just "therapy" for me so they can avoid learning any mathematics above addition and subtraction.

MAKE ME LAUGH!! Send the bodies to them.

And -- I'd like to announce I've been nominated to membership at the New York Academy of Medicine which I think is quite a feat for someone who has never graduated from a medical school.

Maybe it has something to do with my industrial work with CAT and the MRI technologies -- or with large scale communications networks and database systems applied to medical needs and their aftercare issues and problems!?!

Anyway, Dr. Curtis Hart of New York Hospital Weill has agreed to be one of my sponsors. Over the years from 1990 onward, I've worked with, chronologically, Eric Kandel, Mehmet Oz, Herbert Pardes, and Robert Klitzman, all of the CU College of Physicians & Surgeons.

Maybe one or more of them will join Dr. Hart to sponsor one of the team members on the globally distributed and successful CAT/MRI team being ME!!

Thank you all.

I have an issue -- also posted concurrently on my New York Academy of Sciences "Scientists without Borders" webservice and blog -- that comes from a small, I hope, argument about competent mental health care locally as well as globally and that I am having with someone I shall call "Dr. Gee".

As I posted to "S wo B" and I want to give "Dr. Gee" a fair chance to contribute whatever, positive or negative, here, too, I'll be back shortly with more on all this.

Good night from New York,

Dr. Isaacs

HELLO, Columbia Sustainable Developers,

This has nothing to do with my complaint and argument with "Dr. Gee" who. it seems, has no discoverable New York State health care license as should be given his claim to practice medicine in New York State. Later on this as there is no threat to life directly as of yet.

Greater New York MENSA's super duper "cake event for TV" recalling with fashionable dress a strange and weird non Euclidean geometry is this morning reported as postponed with no postponement date given.

Well, it seems all us chubbette sustainable developers will miss our chance to nibble and gobble the face of the planet clean of all excess cake for TV bits and pieces.

Fat, be gone!! Sustain all everyone and everywhere.

Frum:

HELLO,

Not all that long ago I attended a community meeting here in Manhattan, New York. Led by a capable, well liked, and competent leader, the meeting was well attended. Some people enjoy trivia questions. We had a good one put to us by the group's leader.

A rather well known and popular trivia question often offered up at meeting, parties, and other like events is this: You are stuck for a rather long time on a desert island surrounded by salt water like an ocean of a sea. You may bring TWO ITEMS with you to help with your survival. No, you may not bring a full ocean liner. No, you may not bring an organic, natural grocery store, No, you may not bring a fancy, gourmet restaurant.

The evening slowly progressed with a number of answers appearing during the evening. Some were good. Others were questionable or hard to understand. Others were just plain confusing.

I gave this answer: Item one = a solar powered desalinization plant. Item two = a gigantic and heavy weight plastic bag the size of a super tanker. The very strong bag is filled with enriched fertilizer containing fruit and vegetable seeds including some very fast growing alfalfa and bean sprouts to see whomever through the first few months.

I shall be resuming regular posts here, I hope and pray, very soon. Until then folks,

Always truly yours,

HELLO,

It is a very hot day here in Manhattan, New York. The temperature is hovering around 95'F. Not long ago I attended an afternoon meeting at Columbia University on Climate Engineering and the Laws of Climate Change. The meeting was both interesting and very important.

As the earth's climate warms, many difficult problems arise for all humanity. What laws may we make to assure cross-border issues and needs evolving from climate change and global warming's effects are borne equally, that is, shared amongst all peoples across the face of the globe?

Columbia University leads the way regarding climate engineering and change as well as the counterpart issues and needs that evolve from radical changes in the earth's temperatures and the linked matter of global warming.

Ocean level rise coming from glacial melt impacts all the world's island residents. Where will they go as refugees when their island homes are flooded? What countries and nations will accept them as refugees? Who is responsible for their support? What UN and global laws will regulate what they need and so allow them to survive?

These questions must be answered for the earth's survival and progress into the future.

I welcome your questions, ideas, and comments on all of the above. Thank you.

Forever yours for a healthy planet and world,
Dr. Elyas Fraenkel Isaacs; PhD, PhD, PhD, DPH, DDiv., MD(CC/PH)

HELLO,

While this is a bit far from Sustainable Development and all its related issues and needs, I make this request anyway.

I've been doing some arts anthropology research and also work with musical ethnography. What I cannot seem to find is a good philharmonic version of the two Jewish songs from Shabbat services -- Shalom Aleichem and Eliyahu Hanavi. Something akin to a version at the level of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra is what I want. Anybody have? Thanks.

HELLO,

I am rather sad -- thinking back to some of my blog posts that almost seem like they are "from yesteryear" even if only really a couple of years back -- that I have failed to continue with my start of sort of autobiographical blogs on "MY LIFE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT".

For example and FYI, I haven't told about my life with the WHOLE EARTH CATALOUGE and the Post--Woodstock era of ecological science and environmentalism. I did not get into my several years in backwoods Vermont not far from the border doing solar heating, high intensity and low technology, low tech food storage, etc. and etc. research and work.

I did not tell of my multi--year ala Woody Guthrie hitchhikes with help from the SIAM, the AF of L, CIO AFM, and Teamsters' Union truck ["busters"] drivers 9 or 10 times across the good ole USA while hitting about 45 or so of all the US states. There is lots more ... Homeless sheltering and appropriate housing and housing polices. My DPH awarded years as a full member of the Manhattan Mental Health Council and three year CoChair of its Housing and Rehab Committee -- and on and on and on and on ...

COLUMBIA PEOPLE, I am sorry for my lacks; I only say other needs and other problems intervened. {[]:=(

With all your help; I shall do better. Maybe Mrs. MacDowell, yes??, can help me here.

HELLO,

Last week I visited the Columbia University Mathematics Department to scribble a few math type things on the blackboard. The RA's provided a great Famiglia Pizza luncheon with garlic knots, greens salad, and sodas.

If you recall from above then, I did note the occasion of about 24 empty pizza boxes on the sidewalk outside of the Ramath Orah Synagogue. It did not seem to me that the 24 pizza boxes came from the Ramath Orah Synagogue. In the light of Sustainable Development, I thought of what could be done with the 24 empty pizza boxes. Somewhere above I think I voiced something about using the pizza boxes to build a Sukkah.

Jewish and Halacha Law specify certain rules and regulations for what and what is not allowed and acceptable when building a Sukkah. Given my idea of building a Sukkah from the 24 empty pizza boxes, I checked with my Westside Jewish Center/Congregation Beth Israel Vice President on what exactly is allowed when constructing a Halacha acceptable Sukkah. We, of course, know that placing rags and/or dishes of the Sukkah roof is completely unacceptable. The pizza boxes must be clean and free from bugs and rodents. The roof is usually made from thin slats which allow light to shine through, prevent most of the rain from coming through the roof, the Sukkah may not be built under a tree, and likewise.

I had two thought as to how sustianably use the 24 empty pizza boxes. The first is as mentioned above for constructing a Sukkah for the Succos Holiday. The other is using the boxes for artwork, probably paintings. Thank you.

Yours forever,

HELLO,

Here ......

Sorry to be vague; go figure.

I enjoy the great please and sometimes maddening sadness of serving on several United Nations NGO committees that deal with such as health, water, food, housing, stable communities, education, and the like, like on and on and on!!!!! So ........

For the past about an hour I survived a "lecture" here; go figure again.

Let me tell you that when extremely impoverished people -- women, children, men, families, souls, great communities ... arrive to my United Nations committees and ask for help; guess what they ask for -- sports, no -- popular music, no -- modern art, no -- TV fluff, no -- I'll let you fill in the rest of the long, long list!

What they always ask for is what falls under the aegis of the term INFRASTRUCTURE.

So -- that's all I have to say for now. I guess I wasted just over an hour on -- I don't know what but ......

The saddening and maddening thing is that had that just over an hour been focused better -- like sustainability described by rehabitated art -- or public health advertised as ethnoartistic discussion -- it would have worked and been a productive and meaningful just over an hour.

So -- so long for now. I shall return soon for another day to talk about my new acquisition called for now -- until the contest results come in -- just little old LOT 49 in good old New York City.

SHALOM and PEACE.

HELLO,

I received a birthday card from a neighborhood center of which I am a member. The name of the center is the Stanley M. Isaacs Center. Stanley M. Isaacs was a noted educator and governmental community preserver from the twentieth century.

To avoid predictable confusion, I observe my proprietary ownership of my own center, The Elyas Fraenkel Isaacs Research Center, which focuses on such needs as Sustainable Development, the interface between basic nutrition and bio physiology, public heath and its theories, global/national/regional/local emergencies and disasters, and the United Nations and its issues and needs amongst many. Obviously, I both think and know that The Elyas Fraenkel Isaacs Research Center is neither the same nor the equivalent of The Stanley M. Isaacs neighborhood Center which is a wonderful, community based, mostly serving senior citizens neighborhood and community center.

So -- the two centers are not the same at all. Both do good work and bring benefits to the groups they serve.

Thank you all for your very kind and thoughtful attentions to this.

HELLO, ALL,

I began this blog writing not long ago but was bumped off the internet -- DRATS!!!!!!

Anyways, during high school I had a good friend who -- things being what they may -- got married and had a baby girl daughter. My life experiences during high school were that I'd taken physics and learned a few things about electrical engineering and wiring houses. My high school friend's husband bought a kit A-frame chalet. He didn't know how to wire or plumb his kit A-frame chalet, and I said I'd wire it for him. So, I did.

I began but must say I'd never really done anything like wiring an A-frame before. So, I got a copy of the state wiring inspector's manual and read through it all. After completing my reading of the manual, I began wiring the A-frame chalet. Following the manual, I ordered all the wiring supplies I'd need like electrical wiring and cable. Then I began the actual wiring of the A-frame chalet doing things like running cables and wires, setting up all the A-frame chalet's grounded outlets, installing regular and three way switches, and the like. The aforementioned all used 110V AC current. The laundry room and the kitchen used 220V AC current. After completing all this, I finished everything including the final wiring of the electric company's meter and the pigtail arrangement to connect my friend's A-frame chalet's electrical wiring service to the regional power company electrical grid. Finally, all was done except the inspection .

The inspector came to do the electrical inspection. I had followed the state wiring inspection manual to the letter. The inspector advised my friend that my wiring job was absolutely perfect. Evidently, professional electricians can cut a few corners and usually do. But I, following the state electrical inspection manual had done the perfect job to the TEE.

Now, in the end I count this as one of my most memorable life experiences. I had a great time completing the job and would have done it all over again very happily . My friends got their A-frame chalet home wired safely and expertly. I learned a lot and greatly enjoyed wiring a house completely. That's about it for m life experience with electrical engineering. Now if only the IEEE and IBEW could have been there with me while I wired the A-frame chalet home of my two friends.

SHALOM and PEACE to all.

I am always your very good friend,

HELLO, ALL,

This continues my comments from above on what I call "THE LAKE HOUSE". Why??? Because my friend and her family's A-frame chalet and attached cabin were and are still located on a medium sized lake with a great and very beautiful nearby two and a half acre home site. I forgot to mention above that I installed a circuit breaker box and a power company electrical hook-up pigtail. If you need or want more information on installing circuit breaker boxes or power company electrical hook-up pigtails, look them up. Searching the internet or contacting professionals at such as the IEEE and the IBEW is a very good idea.

Recreation for me during all the construction and otherwise was fishing. Fishing for some including me can be difficult. Why?? Well, this lake of "THE LAKE HOUSE" was stocked with bass and pickeral fish. While pickeral are reasonably easy to land and catch, bass fish are not. Bass have thin lips and odd, under-bite mouths which make them very difficult to land and nearly impossible to catch. They slip off the fish-hook very, very easily. What is really needed is a fishing net. I had no net -- hence NO BASS FISH!! We -- the four of us -- my friend, her husband, her then infant daughter, and I ate the fish we caught, my pickeral -- very bony to eat -- and her husband's few bass. We had enough fish with the pickeral and the bass to eat which made a good meal for us all.

Recreations for me that summer and early fall were writing poetry and contemplating the beautiful lake and its scenery. Here is a poem I wrote that summer:

"The Dawning, Morning of Wisdom"
==============================
The sun arises in the East.
Warming humans, warming beasts.
The singing birds chirp whence ere they fly.
The Lord's Words, Blest be His Name,
rain[reign] down for us from Heaven's sky.

HELLO, ALL,

Somewhere above I wrote a short entry about "THE LAKE HOUSE" about my helping to electrically wire a sustainable A-frame LAKE HOUSE.

I did another, more complicated project called "THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE" where I and a partner working with the United Nations and its agencies, the World Health Organization, the UNICEF, the UN Commission on the Status of Women, the UN Commission on Sustainable Development, the UN Commission on Indigenous Peoples, the University of Vermont Graduate Schools, the University of Vermont Medical School, IBM Corp., Digital Equipment Corp., the Association for Computing Machinery Vermont Chapter, and about 250 business, industry, and agricultural entities, and individual ACM members.

My partner in this and I created a solar heated research home with a solar heated porch, thermal berm, and hydro-tank heat storage unit as well as a low technology, high intensity research one acre agricultural garden with both floral an vegetative plantings. We also had an herb garden which supplied our needs for herbs year round.

I am currently seeking needed funding to generate a comprehensive and complete report about "THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE" that will include amongst many thoughts and ideas things like the aforementioned solar heating research, thermal been and hydro-tank heat storage, the low technology and high intensity research agricultural farming, and many other things.

When the report becomes available, notice will be posted in this blog.

HELLO,FOLKS,

I am very pleased to tell you I was just yesterday invited by Jonathan Rubin, Past Treasurer of New York City Friends of the Clearwater Sloop on the Hudson River, to join in membership with the other members who support and believe in Pete Seeger's messages of sustainability, climate safety, ecological harmony, and nuclear sanity which embrace the whole world.

According to many, Pete Seeger was one of America's best and most beloved modern day folks singers rivalled only by Woody Guthrie and Box Car Willie. Others from that golden era of folk music being the 1950's and 1960's, my time, were Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Canada's own Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, the Kingston Trio, the Brothers Four, Peter, Paul, and Mary, and many, many more.

The 1950's and 1960's, the years of Beatniks and the Peace and Flower Generation were a time of peace, freedom, and harmony amongst young people, old people, and everyone who understood and believed that the ethics of loyal freedom, gregarious sharing, happy learning, and insightful passion for humanity's goodness, love, and wisdom are important, creates peace amongst all, motivates friendship and community caring, and leads to a better, freer, and more understanding and compassionate society of like-minded people and neighbors.

I look forward to my future of membership in and sharing amongst all the members of the New York City Friends of the Sloop Clearwater and to continuing with them Pete Seeger's mission of love, peace, and congenial friendship amongst all people everywhere in the world.

HELLO, EVERYBODY,

I'm over at the Upper Westside neighborhood Whole Foods Market. What I've seen before has happened here again to one of my favorite organic, natural food sources.

Many years ago when sustainability was called CONSERVATION, a friend contracted diabetes. I was a sensitive, caring young adult who wanted to lose a few pounds. So, I commiserated with my diabetic friend. Together we joined and started out on the American Disbetes Association diet. She ably controlled her disbetes primsrliy by diet. I lost over 30 pounds, a feat that pleased me immeasurably.

So, what's the problem? Something I've encountered time and again in the Whole Earth and Whole Foods movement is not just avoidance but total exclusion of simple but detailed attention to the simple, sound prinivimpkes of human nutrition.

So often I've discovered modt people on diets don't even know the definition of the building block of nutrition, yes, the DEFINITION of the CALORIE.

Someone tells you or you decide for yourself that your daily diet to control your diabetes or to lose that extra 30 pounds needs only 1200 food calories each day.

With proper and sufficient exercise and dietary control, 1200 calories makes for controlled diabetes and weight loss. With 1200 calories each day your capillary blood glucose stays below 110 mg/dL and you lose 1 to 2 pounds each week,

But, and this is a big but, you and no one else knows what a calorie is. How can you lose calories or control calories if you don't even know what calories are?!!

Check my next installment for the DEFINITION of the CALORIE. And sometime soon I'll get on to vitamins and minerals and proteins and amino acids and et cetera...

Oh yes, back to Whole Foods ... they have a new food consultant who does cookbooks. To be truthful,I've never seen calorie counts or calorie definitions or vitamin and mineral listings in almost all cookbooks.

So, I expect to return to Whole Foods in a year or two and find all those Whole Earth Whole Foids natural eating organic types with natural, organic tubby bellies and saggybdouble or triple chins. We age; gravity has its way. What was once here is now down there. If only we just knew what a humble calorie is.

The moral of all this is: IF YOU CAN'T COUNT WHAT YOU EAT, WHAT YOU EAT WILL ADD UP THE COUNT AND BE ON YOU EVERYWHERE.

ZOFIG UBER ALLES, FAT REIGNS SUPREME.

HELLO,

Last week I attended a short conference at the United Nations on Health and the Environment. The topic was LIFE AFTER CHERNOBYL. I thought the event was very interesting. The speakers were informative and knowledgeable. The questions were pointed and focuseed.

Dr. Liner whose specialty amongst several is pediatric oncology spoke about various radiation exposures to children as babies, as infants, and in the womb.

One thoughtful speaker was the son of the polio vaccine creator Dr. Jonas Salk. He spoke at length about his wishes to follow and advance his Father’s mission to move humanity into a positive and more hopeful future.

One especially thought provoking matter Dr. Salk’s son sole about was his curiosity regarding what existed before the beginning of the universe at the Big Bang. I thought that to be a gigantic question . What exactly did exist before the beginning of time and space? I don’t think hardly anyone really knows. Perhaps a very few mathematics savvy cosmologists are beginning to have an idea on how to approach the question. It would be a curiosity if some one individual now has some part of an answer to that overwhelming question.

Ask yourself what was there before the universe.

To wit:

Hello, Colleagues,

Support climate science. The evidence is as clear as the sky is blue: Earth’s climate is changing. Humans are a principal cause. The responsible actors — that’s us — can and should act. And acting now will be much less costly than acting later.

Anti-science forces have made many Americans skeptical of this reality — but AAAS is actively working to set the record straight. That’s why I am asking you to support our efforts with the Flexible Action Fund. I can’t think of a more urgent task than providing the public with accurate, evidence-based information about public issues — especially climate change. The science is compelling; the risks are profound.

But it’s not just that; it is imperative that we find new and better ways to communicate this message to those who may be uninterested or skeptical; or to decision-makers; or to the next generation.

We’re making progress, but our work is not done. In a 2017 study, more Americans than ever said they believe climate change is mostly human-caused — yet 30% of respondents still say it’s due to natural fluctuations.

The AAAS and the Flexible Action Fund’s help continue the critical work we’re doing to engage more proactively with the public. Here’s just a sample of it:

[01] We are standing up a grassroots infrastructure that will allow us to quickly identify, connect with and “plug in” scientific experts to conversations about climate issues — and their local implications — making them relevant to communities across the country.
We are developing How We Respond, a communications effort that will highlight consequential, real-life scenarios across the U.S. where local leaders are working with scientists and engineers to adapt to and to mitigate the effects of climate change.
And through our vast network of fellows and others, we are helping decision-makers, reporters, and the public at large to make informed decisions about these and other important topics based on the best science and technology available.

***I know climate change is politically charged these days, like so many other issues. But at AAAS, we take only the side of the evidence. And on climate change, the evidence is clear: It’s happening and we’re the cause. It’s our job to make sure everyone knows about it.***

A tax-deductible gift of $100 or more helps change that. We’ll continue to spread our message to as wide an audience as we can, every single day.

REMEMBER: THINK GLOBALLY; ACT LOCALLY!! Give where it will help you, your family, your friends, your neighborhoods, your communities, and then the whole world. But, just give!!

With my appreciation,
Rush D. Holt
Chief Executive Officer, AAAS
and Executive Publisher, Science Family of Journals

HELLO,

Last Friday evening I attended my membership organization being Pete Seeger's New York City Friends of Clearwater. The evening's presenter, Mark, spoke about the needs and issues of climate change and global sustainability.

During the mid-1980's I worked in the semi-arctic environment of mountainous Northern Vermont where my research and development project entailed passive solar design and constructions with berm and hydro thermal storage. Our facility's land of over 30 acres had a huge, over 1 acre, garden which used high intensity, low technology sustainable farming and gardening methods and techniques and produced an environmentally friendly, organic, and low carbon footprint source of nutrition for me and my research team.

Almost all year long we enjoyed a plentiful diet of fresh, Bell jar "canned", and frozen vegetables ranging from several varieties of tomatoes, carrots, a number of various lettuces, radishes, several types of squash, bountiful volumes of zucchini, and many more.

Since our research project used passive solar heating design supplemented by a high tech alternative heat source plus advanced technology water heating elements, I'm applying for grants to cover my cost for my authorship of a complete and authoritative report on my observations and conclusions as well as an appendix dedicated to the outcomes study.

At Friday's evening meeting, Mark spoke about his interests and presentations on technology similar to mine from the mid-1980's. I invited his questions and comments to this blog and await his first entry. I am happy and just a little bit proud to say that where he and his friends, colleagues, and peers are now in 2018, I was in about 1984, a lead of almost THIRTY-FIVE YEARS!!! !!!

Check back here periodically for updates and new information. Thanks bunches.

SHALOM, SHALEIM, PEACE, LOVE.

Always yours,

HELLO,

I've been waxing eloquent regarding my inevitable intent to finally post the story of MOUNTAIN HOUSE located in the cold Green Mountains of Northern Vermont. One irrevocable fact of life about this is my need to gain funding before I can author the story to completion. Look, we all have living costs: housing, food, clothing, personal hygiene, transportation, the list goes on and on. I'm no different from you. So, before I write the whole schmiel; cash in my pocket, dinner on the table, clean clothes on my back, toothbrush and paste in the loo, all the facts of life.

So, with that out of the way, I begin my foundation statement about what was way back then when MOUNTAIN HOUSE came to be. I was the Principle Investigator as I had the necessary Electrical Engineering experience and one critical demonstration site fact was the trickle charge, hot water heater. The heating element was a NASA spin-off design optimized to most volume hot water for least wattage. That's Electrical Engineering, my experience indeed.

The other investigator was a former bio-systems research associate working on a CLU Certificate with the College of Chartered Life Underwriters and supervision by the Wharton School. It was the accounting responsibility of this person to account for our books and budget as well as arranging the purchasing agreements. This was the reality of our research facility agreements.

One of our goals for this project was to design, implement, test, collect data, and then analyze with an outcome report to establish whether or not our work anywhere near reached our goals. My proposal submission included acquiring simple thermal sensing telemetry equipment to collect data aiming for our goals. Much to my ultimate sadness this did not happen.

What was purchased seemingly each week was about 5 gallons of gin and 10 two liter bottles of tonic. Added to the mix was a big bag of limes. I have no answer for this. We went there to Northern Vermont, a semi-arctic environment, to test the feasibility of passive solar design, implementation, and use. This obviously did not happen.

So, here's a brief introduction to the whole sad story. The full story of everything will come later with appropriate and robust financial support. Keep looking here for my report!!

SHALOM, SHALEIM, PEACE, LOVE.

Always,

HELLO, FRIENDS, It seems no one not ren President Donald Yrump himself really knows what’s going on with our Planet Esrth Climate. Is it changing or not?

I know a few things about Climate, weather, and cold temperatures. In some of my prior blog comments, I mentioned MOUNTAIN HOUSE, my Sustainable Development and agriculture Project Good Esrt located in Underhill, Vermont, near Burlington and about 18 miles from the Canadian Borde.


Thinking of extreme weather, the lowest temperature I ever encountered during my research years in Vermont was New Year’s Eve in 1985 when the temperature dropped to -30*F which is my personal cold weather record.


So, is the planet warming or not? I’m located now on Staten Island in a facility adjoining the Clay Pit Ponds State Park Preserve which is filled With arboreal scientific elemrntsv otherwise known as trees.


Trees an be viewed as Mother Nature’s thermometer. If the weather is too extreme being either too cold or too hot,TREES DIE.
So, that’s an excellent micro-answer shoeing a region factor of environmental health or illness.

Be back later. Ty.

ELYAS FRAENKEL ISAACS
