About the Author
 John Scales Avery (born in 1933 in Lebanon to American parents) is a theoretical chemist noted for his research publications in quantum chemistry, thermodynamics, evolution, and history of science. Since the early 1990s, Avery has been an active World peace activist. During these years, he was part of a group associated with the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. In 1995, this group received the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts. Presently, he is an Associate Professor in quantum chemistry at the University of Copenhagen. His 2003 book Information Theory and Evolution set forth the view that the phenomenon of life, including its origin and evolution, that including human cultural evolution, has it background situated over thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and information theory. 
JOHN SCALES AVERY—Quick change is needed to save the long-term future. The central problem which the world faces in its attempts to avoid catastrophic climate change is a contrast of time scales. In order to save human civilization and the biosphere from the most catastrophic effects of climate change we need to act immediately, Fossil fuels must be left in the ground. Forests must be saved from destruction by beef or palm oil production. These vitally necessary actions are opposed by powerful economic interests, by powerful fossil fuel corporations desperate to monetize their underground “assets”, and by corrupt politicians receiving money from the beef or palm oil industries.



^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

  1. Phenomenal article! The book should be required reading for any human with a pulse.

    “Unchanged life-styles are not an option. Business as usual is not an option. Inaction is not an option. Public education is needed. Votes for environmentally friendly politicians are needed. A carbon tax is needed. Subsidies to fossil fuel giants must stop. Extraction of fossil fuels must stop. Renewable energy infrastructure must quickly be constructed. Renewable energy infrastructure represents an unprecedented investment opportunity.”

    Yes, to all. But there will be no progress in the U.S. on any of this under the current regime. And I don’t mean Trump and company. I mean the entire government-corporate-banking-ruling-elite regime. While there are solid arguments for launching all of these easily identified suspects into an orbit around a distant sun, what we can do now is break the bond between legislators and the fat-cat patrons who now control Congress, by sending 435 members of the House and 33 senators packing. We do this using candidate contracts, specifically an electoral strategy called CFAR. This is the beginning of a soft coup, regime change by voter fiat …. no-contract-no-vote dot us

  2. analysis from more than 150 years ago clearly warned that adoption of capitalist methods of production would lead to the destruction of nature in all its forms, obviously including humanity..this has led to the present situation, and, in accordance with economic dictates, the creation of what has become a brand name marketplace product called “climate change”..continued reliance on private profit making as somehow solving the massive problem(s) it has created is hardly a proposed solution to humanity’s problem..whether the profit seeking is done by supposed evil and greedy types or alleged visionaries, as elon musk is depicted in this work, it can only produce further destruction of both humanity and the nature from which we originate..musk’s “vision” is produced by profit pursuit, and his firing of workers who propose forming unions at his “visionary” facilities is only one obvious example of furthering the problem, which is opposition to democracy..whatever label we use or are programed to learn as needed for radical change, what is needed is such radical solution to the problem for humanity that ends pursuit of private gain at public loss before that loss becomes humanity’s end..whether we call it socialism, communism, hootchy kootchy dancing or dolphin dining, the label doesn’t matter..the story hind the label does, and it can no longer be capitalism.
