You Kids Know What Global Warming Is?



"I'm glad you do," Bradley said, gesturing for the kids to put their hands down. The only person talking today would be Ted Bradley. "But you may not know that global warming is going to cause a very sudden shift in our climate. Maybe just a few months or years, and it will suddenly be much hotter or much colder. And there will be hordes of insects and diseases that will take down wonderful trees."
"What kind of insects?" one kid asked.
"Bad ones," Bradley said. "The ones that eat trees, that worm inside them and chew them up." He wiggled his hands, suggesting the worming in progress.
"It would take a insect a long time to eat a whole tree," a girl offered.
"No it wouldn't!" Bradley said. "That's the trouble. Because warming means lots and lots of insects will come-a plague of insects-and they'll eat the trees fast!"

I was amazed as I read this, and like the tsunami, I was taken back by the predictive feature of Michael Crichton, in his assessment of characters Ted Bradley the movie star, voicing the fate of global warming as he spoke to the children about something that Michael Crichton did not know?

He is smart enough to use the character, for sending a message, by exploiting the general consensus of society, and having this voice based in the actor.

Had society come this far, to realize that this fictional story, had somehow become a platform, for exposing what some would consider the sheep in the world forum society, to say, we in the United States, recognize this undercurrent of brain washing that is taking place with our children?

Now, for the Exchange.

As I said above the message in the book becomes pretty interesting, once one reads the jest of the book, and I only pulled one part of it for consideration here. About what fear could be induced in the society that we have not acknowledge some basic facts.

So this is to follow, and without being critized for following like sheep, such voices of global warming having been assigned as co-conspirators to induce fear in the population. What can we do here to answer Ted Bradley's speech to the children?

Some have done a reversal of soldified positions to say, and quite loudly, that the global warming issue is a farce, and by the United States not signing the Kyoto Accord, it stands above the rest of the world? Is it being duped by these so called fictional conspirators of Michael Crichtons, who can create and manipulate the weather for there own ends? To impress upon the world, that the message of what could become, are the result created by those same acts of enviromental terrorism?

Now before one goes off on a tangent and saids, that some fictional story written, could actually address the situation, well let me add to this before this is done.

In Michael Crichton style, I hope to offer a balanced and informative view about what nature has selectively introduced to the forest, for the world stage. Yes this is what I have done here I think.:)

Salvaging Solutions

The Suzuki Foundation, with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Committee and Forest Watch of BC, conducted some of the latest research and consulted with leading scientists when writing Salvaging Solutions, Mr. Fulton explained.

Let's Remove the Fear, That Can Ruin our Lives

Before I begin I wanted to open the new blog with somethings that were presented to me through reading here. What was important that I understood the perception that could have developed from Michael Crichton book, that I see this individual take a stance on, in regards to the American position on the Kyoto Accord.

So without further ado, I wanted to open this up by presenting the book and then move into the first article I wish to produce. So having introduced," The State of Fear Blog, " I welcome any new blogers to contribute to the understanding about the Fear that could manifest itself apparent in society's sociological thinking, and move this to the deeper part of the psyche for consideration.

I choose Thales for obvious reasons to incorporate not only the psychological aspect of where fear can be moved, and motivate good thinking people to adopt the positions they do. So it is critical that information demonstrate certain fundamental requirements for how we assess the information that opposing sites will show.

I am currently looking at the evidence, that such fear has propagated the world forum into the actions it has taken, and whether the price of this action has benefited the world in way that would enhance our daily living.

I have not solidified my position, although I do acknowledge certain benefits to what fear has motivated.

So it is important then, that good minds show themselves and the information they have, to helping us make this understood as to why fear has not motivated the American persistance and resistance, on signing the Kyoto accord?

I will be expanding this feature about the Sate of Fear beyond the context of the climatic concerns to other things as well to educate myself and others to why fear opens us ot motivate and why good infomration can help alleviate what is controlling societal views about life and such.



This is Michael Crichton's most wide-ranging thriller. State of Fear takes the reader from the glaciers of Iceland to the volcanoes of Antarctica, from the Arizona desert to the deadly jungles of the Solomon Islands, from the streets of Paris to the beaches of Los Angeles. The novel races forward, taking the reader on a rollercoaster thrill ride, all the while keeping the brain in high gear. Gripping and thought-provoking, State of Fear is Michael Crichton at his very best.


One of my first articles will be posted soon. So in the meantime, Welcome.

One of the first things I would like to try and do is open this blog up to individuals who wil post their articles in response to the American reistance, as to why they should join or why they shouldn't.
