La ‘Forêt Trump’, le meilleur projet qui porte son nom?

Donald Trump a qualifié le changement climatique comme une ‘canular’ inventé par les chinois dans le but de ruiner l’économie américaine. Dans le but de contrer les politiques dévastatrices de la nouvelle administration, trois environnementalistes ont décidé de planter une forêt qui, ironiquement, portera le nom : Trump Forest

Malheureusement, en étant le président des États-Unis il a beaucoup de pouvoir , ce qui transforme ses propos négligeant en actes dangereux. Comme vous le savez, Trump a annoncé le retrait des États-Unis de l’Accord de Paris. Les accords n’avaient pas un caractère contraignant, mais ce geste symbolique de la part de l’administration actuelle illustre leur attitude face à la crise écologique. Ils ne comptent pas soutenir la transition vers des énergies renouvelables et continueront à mettre les bénéfices à court terme avant l’avenir de notre espèce. Tout les citoyens américains et les citoyens du monde entier ne sont pas prêts à abandonner leurs objectifs de réduction des émissions de Co2.

L’idée de départ était de planter un arbre pour chaque fois que le président utilise les mots ‘changement climatique’. Les fondateurs se sont rendus compte qu’à ce rythme ils ne planteront pas grand-chose. Divers départements de son administration ont même découragé ou interdit l’utilisation du terme… Trump a annoncé qu’il ne poursuivra pas le plan de l’administration précédente de convertir l’économie vers les énergies renouvelables.  Taylor, Price et Willis ont donc décidé d’essayer de planter suffisamment d’arbres pour compenser les émissions de gaz à effet de serre qui se produiraient sans le Clean Power Plan qui visait à réduire les émission du secteur énergétique de 30% d’ici 2030.

Combien d’arbres faudrait-il planter pour compenser tout ces émissions qui ne seraient pas réduites? Selon leurs estimations, cela revient à environ 10 milliards d’arbres. Ces arbres seraient capables d’empêcher 650 millions de tonnes de dioxyde de carbone à s’accumuler dans l’atmosphère. Contrairement à tous les produits et bâtiments qui portent son nom : Trump Hotels, Trump Steaks, Trump Water  etc. ni le président ni sa famille participent dans le projet de ‘La forêt de Trump’. Au contraire, le nom est plutôt une blague ironique qui cherche à souligner l’inaction de la personne la plus puissante au monde face à la crise environnementale. Les fondateurs ont dit qu’ils savent que Trump aime nommer des choses en son nom et espèrent d’attirer son attention et de déclarer son soutien pour le projet. J’ai des doutes que cela arriverait. 

Les fondateurs du projet se rendent compte de la taille du défi qui se pose devant eux. Leurs objectif est de couvrir une zone de la taille du Kentucky ou de l’île Nord de la Nouvelle-Zélande. C’est difficile d’imaginer qu’une forêt de cette taille pourrait être planté à un seul endroit. Par contre s’ils divisent la superficie entre plusieurs pays, la tache devient beaucoup plus envisageable. Le changement climatique est un sujet qui concerne tout le monde, et ce qui se passe au États-Unis affecte toute la planète. La forêt de Trump a reçu le soutien et des donations des citoyens du monde entier. A l’heure actuelle le projet a récolté plus que 130000 dollars et a promis de planter environ 1 million d’arbres.

    Can humans learn to count the uncountable, to value the invaluable, the fragile but critical flows and cycles of life that lift all up to light?

    I know we can….if we can learn to count, value, worship more than only one private, immediate, shortsighted, blinding self of privatizing, segregating, negative, consumptive, cash-driven private worlds of walls and barriers obstructing, crushing life……enough to learn to count and value also critical but uncountable flows, cycles, genetic genius, positive potentials hidden inside every living cell, seed, seedling, soil, self, all living selves that want to reach up toward light of our sun enough to grow upwards toward light enough to lift all life up to light.

    That observation is important: Perhaps Abraham discovered that, so 3 world religions have lasted for several thousand years.

    We need to redefine and reanalyze our words, “the carbon cycle”….to differentiate between deadly DeadHeaterCarbons (of fossil fuel fools segregating life, crushing life, heating our consumptive planet into explosive extremes)….. V.S….. LivingCoolingCarbons (complex living molecules of green photosynthesis/chlorophyll & red respiration/hemoglobin of by for growing, producing critical but hidden nurturing flows, cycles, genetic genius of by for all life on earth of exquisite intelligence to consume enough to produce enough….to satisfy basic critical needs wants desires dreams of by for ironically fragile living structures and functions and flows growing upwards, cooling, buffering, nurturing, nourishing, activating, reviving lifting all life up to light of our sun to grow increasingly adaptive and very specific structures, functions, flows, cycles lifting all up to health, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”…. for millions, billions of years on earth.

    But ….I have discovered that ironically, tragically, our human cash system counts the most critical flows for life the least, the most fragile, the most hidden, the most productive the least….and counts the least critical, the most obstructive, the most deadly flows, walls, consumptive forces the most….crushing life on earth for thousands of years. But in the last 100 years, humans have used explosive fossil fuels to power our explosion of urban walls, barriers, toxic forces and war to crush life on earth….to crush and destroy ironically fragile living cells, seeds, seedlings, soils, selves, whole integrating living systems that we all need to survive day to day and minute to minute.

    I have told this to more than 100 persons….and each agreed with my observation except for a Russian accent of the fossil fuel industry at a Next Generation Climate meeting before the 2016 election in the US.

    I have observed that human forces crush and destroy life that we need to survive..and we call those deadly forces “economy” erroneously…..crushing fragile but critical living cells, seeds, seedlings, soils, selves, whole living systems of flows, cycles, living structures and functions satisfying each, whole earth systems of indivisible flows, cycles harvesting our sun’s light, energy, synergy, air, o2, water, h2o, rich organic topsoil and soil+maker production and productivity growing green photosynthesis to lift all up to light and wind of our earth’s fragile but critical flows & cycles & genius, to harvest life’s blessings, climates, oceans, green absorbent watersheds that activate, nourish, nurture, cleanse, cool, buffer, filter, heal, lift all life up to light of our sun, enabling every living cell, seed, seedling, soil, self, whole living system to grow upwards and satisfy all, each that wants to reach up toward light of our sun enough to lift all up to light…

    America can not afford to crush life on earth…..because crushing life on earth also crushes “economy”…

    Nature nurtures all life…every living cell, seed, seedling, soil, self, whole living system, whole earth system, climate, ocean, watershed indivisible, inalienable flowing, cycling, producing enough critical flows, cycles enough to nurture, cleanse, cool, buffer, activate, renew, heal all life on earth, eery living cell and self now and generations from now and more.

    America needs to redefine our word “eco+nomic” as more than crushing life on earth ….and needs to learn to count and value the hidden but fragile living cells, seeds, seedlings, soils, selves, Con+science uncountable, whole living selves, each part and whole inalienable that want to reach up toward light of our sun enough to lift all life up to light.

    We don’t have much time to act to lower Dead Heater Carbon levels in our atmosphere on earth…..Dead Heater Carbon levels the main criterion causing deadly climate change events that cost so many so much.

    The focus of most actions locally to globally on climate change has been to lower the percentage (%) of emissions released by industry within a period of years…..but this is very inadequate.

    If the main criterion determining the increase of temperature of “global warming” and global chaos of extreme events on earth is instead the level/concentration of Dead Heater Carbons (DHC) of fossil fuel remains in our earth’s atmosphere….then all parties need to switch to another strategy immediately to reverse that trajectory:

    This is both doable and immediately effective for changing the course of history on earth:

    Stanford’s Civil and Environmental Engineering professor, Mark J Jacobson has discovered that 100% Renewable Energy (in the US) is 100% doable by 2050 (100.org 2015)….and in the international community by 2030 (IRENA 2016).

    But the fossil fuel industry does not want America to kick their deadly addictions to fossil fuel consumption …because the fossil fuel industry wants to maximize their privatized deregulated private cashflow rates into their own privatized corporate fossil fuel bank accounts…..even if they crush and destroy their own children’s future….even if they crush their own nation’s future…..even if they crush their own private future and own private world of only one private fossil fuel fool. Ironically. Stupidly.

    But America can not afford to crush America’s own future.

    It’s all about boundaries……private boundaries, public boundaries, lifeweb boundaries….thick or thin, inflexible or flexible, deadly or healing, fixed or adaptable…..unable to grow or able to grow upwards toward light.

    A public world decides together to fail or grow upwards toward light.

    But a public world can not function if only one private self blocks public access to critical but uncountable flows, cycles, genetic genius that any need to succeed or “profit” in any definition.

    So when only one private self seizes totalitarian control of my US Government to block and obstruct public access to the critical flows & cycles & genius that all life needs to consume day to day and minute to minute to survive day to day and minute to minute….then the many need to act to survive….and can not afford for tyrants to fall and fail, pulling all down with them……because we are all connected, bound by moral laws of reciprocity now and generations from now and through history.

    Listen to history far from the obvious.

    Listen to the future far from the obvious.

    Listen to nature’s genius far from the obvious.

    Listen to life’s need to consume enough ironically uncountable but critical flows, cycles, genius of nature’s inalienable systems of by by for light and life, energy, synergy, air, o2, water, h2o, rich, organic topsoil and soil+maker production and productivity enough to grow green photosynthesis, chlorophyll to lift all up to light enough to learn to laugh….with vision and wisdom enough to guide the many toward a safer future for all to share.

    America can not afford to self-destruct. But that is what the blinded idiots are doing. Help.

    Please help America understand that we, all need to value the invaluable, count the uncountable enough to lift all up to light enough…to grow heaven indivisible on earth instead.

    Ironically, those that are crushing us the most tell us not to share….when nature shares freely, sharing critical but uncountable flows, cycles, genius of nature’s amazing light, energy, synergy, symphonies of nature, air flows and cycles aerating my government, growing abundant cooling, cleansing O2 for me to breathe, filtering and cleansing and cooling water flows and cycles enough to hold my ironically fragile and functional web for all life intact enough to lift all up to light far beyond the obvious.

    But some just don’t get it and limit their counts, values, religion to mechanical rates of private/privatizing/privatized/confined/segregating, shorterm/shortsighted, obvious/blinding/flat/linear/limiting/simple/easy/cheap/quick/corporateprofiteeringdriven,cash-driven/cash-powed/cash-limiting private cashflow floods into only one anaerobic deadly private bank account of by for only one private self stuck in only one obvious now…..at my expense…..thowing deadly explosive risks and costs onto me, my world, my future, my children’s world and future, and ironically onto their own children’s future and world, and ironically onto their own private future…..at their own expense.

    But the thick dense deadly walls, barriers and negative, consumptive forces of a cash-driven, privatizing, deregulating, dishonest, shortsighted, blinding, consumptive “economy” that limits counts, values, religion to mechancial rates of private cashflow floods into only one private bank account crushes life every time, crushes nature’s ability to nurture, to heal a broken world, crushes the private self, ironically…..not so far from the obvious. So tyrants fail and fall every time. I learned that from my religion just recently….and have learned that some abuse religion to loot the many and seize totalitarian control of the many …..at the expense of the many and their own self, destroying their own self.

    I have also learned that we need about 6 kinds of “economy”….6 different types of “eco+nomics” of different structures and functions and management…..that we cannot afford to limit our economic counts, values, religion to only one private bank account of by for mechanical rates of private cashflow floods into only one private bank account that crushes life and logic on earth.

    Tragically, some limit their public counts, values, religion to mechanical rates of privatized cashflow floods into only one private bank account of by for only one obvious now…..at public expense….at life’s expense/nature’s expense…..crushing life on earth …..causing terminal finites, extinction of life on earth.

    Humans have used human cash systems to build great human cities and great human civilizations for thousands of years….but human cities of walls, barriers, forces of war also crush the ability of nature’s fragile but critical living cells, seeds, seedlings, soils, selves to reach up toward light of our sun enough to grow heaven on earth. So human cashflow floods of by for urbanizing nature crush life on earth.

    Humans discovered that fossil fuels enable humans to increase the rates of urbanization of nature and to increase the rates and power of war on others 1) to take from the many to get for only private self and 2) to crush the other to lift the private self up……2 erroneous assumptions driving humans and all into extinction more and more rapidly in the last 150 years.
