Aligning Policies with Facts to Improve our Security, Health and Happiness

· Commenting

More fact-based research on emissions is needed to further reduce them scientifically.

What we cannot see, can be very harmful to our people.

Saying that there is no problem and denying that climate change exists, is ignorant, lazy and criminal in terms of providing for security of our people.

The culture in local and and in state governments as well as provincial, isolated publishing houses need to change in many ways.

State bureaucrats need to value more tacitly enlightened public contributions with proper compensation for not only work performed but also for the cost of IP to perform the work that allows them to fulfill their functions on taxpayer salaries that depend on independent, objective work of independent contractors for livelihood.

Conservative provincial publishing houses need to live up to their contracts more actively and relearn serving paid client’s interests to further their own in new, more flexible ways in changing climate.

Passively waiting and slowly slogging through texts, needle-nosing smooth reads of current science, providing misinformation regarding distribution and sales as well as consciously deceiving and thwarting distribution and paid orders that threaten financially fragile interests of growing movements to benefit poorly defended public interests without more involvement from active, interested and independent authors battling de facto systemic censorship.

Food security is also becoming even more perilous because of the fog from ignorant politicians relying on unknowledgeable and disinterested advisors.

History proves time and time again that the market solves nothing without highly enlightened leadership to correct it based on sound facts of healthy science.

World population will double from 2000 to 2050 requiring further increases in food production that are in peril due to irresponsible and dangerous land practices as well as increasing poisoning with carbon of water, soil and air from ongoing criminal increases in fossil-fuel production.

Positive steps to take include consuming less meat which requires more resources to grow and is a less efficient source of needed protein compared to fish and legumes. But policies continue to promote just the opposite as meat production increased globally by 60 percent since the 1990s.

Livestock is also responsible for almost half of harmful emissions in agriculture from chemicals in artificial fertilizers, especially nitrogen that leads to algae blooms in water, etc.

However, scientists can learn much from farmers especially in terms of organizing to lobby for their interests.

In a changing climate, quality of food, including tea is also negatively influenced. Hotter temperatures, and SLR weaken roots of plants and correspondingly weaken positive chemicals. To adapt to changing climates, teas can be grown in dryer, cooler altitudes for better quality.

Nevertheless nature’s forces of adaptation cannot be underestimated as tea plants in changing climate are also developing positive reactions with new chemicals to survive and thrive that can also improve taste as well as effects on humans, including natural anti-arthritic and sedative effects.
