The world is acutely threatened by man-made global warming with Island States and mega-delta nations such as Bangladesh, India and Myanmar already suffering major damage from climatic disruption (mainly from floods, sea level rise and increased hurricane intensity) (for a detailed and documented account see “Climate Disruption, Climate Emergency, Climate Genocide & Penultimate Bengali Holocaust through Sea Level Rise” : http://sites.google.com/site/yarravalleyclimateactiongroup/climate-disruption-climate-emergency-climate-genocide-penultimate-bengali-holocaust-through-sea-level-rise ) .
The following Letter has been sent to Media and Governments of Island Nations around the World.
Letter to Island Nations - Accountability, Badge and Credo (ABC) protocol & ICC prosecutions may yet save Island States, Planet
The World is acutely threatened by man-made global warming (e.g. Island States are severely threatened by increasing sea levels and increased hurricane intensity; massive global climatic disruption has already occurred) and many scientists now doubt that we can avoid further damaging temperature increases to over 2C above that in 1900. According to top UK climate scientist Dr James Lovelock FRS fewer than 1 billion people (mostly European) will survive the century due to First World profligacy and unaddressed man-made climate change – this translating to 10 billion deaths (mostly of non-Europeans, 3 billion Muslims, 2 billion Indians) in an already-commenced Climate Holocaust and Climate Genocide. However resolute global action via an Accountability, Badge and Credo (ABC) protocol may yet save Man and the Biosphere (see “How to Save the Planet. Accountability, Badge & Credo (ABC) Protocol” published in the ethical, pro-Humanity, pro-Planet, Vancouver-based Media With Conscience News (MWC News): http://mwcnews.net/content/view/30564/42/ .
In short, the Accountability, Badge and Credo (ABC) protocol involves (A) Accountability of greenhouse gas (GHG)-polluting climate criminals imposing GHG pollution on all peoples and species (e.g. by naming via an electronic Climate Doomsday Book or virtual Climate Doomsday Monument of bad and good guys; by using a Green Credentialling or Green Certification system to identify products, people, companies and countries we can support and those we must boycott; and by international and intra-national sanctions, boycotts, green tariffs, reparations demands, civil actions and criminal prosecutions); (B) a Badge that activists can wear with a simple core pictorial or word message (e.g. “Climate Emergency” or “Climate Emergency Network”) or a core numerical message (e.g. “300” or “350” to indicate the urgent need to reduce atmospheric CO2 concentration to about 300 parts per million (ppm) or to less than 350 ppm, respectively); and (C) a Credo or core statement of beliefs e.g. “We believe in a safe and sustainable existence for all peoples and all species on our warming-threatened Planet and that this requires a rapid reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration to about 300 parts per million”.
What we urgently need to do globally is (1) Change of societal philosophy to one of scientific risk management and biological sustainability with complete cessation of species extinctions and zero tolerance for lying; (2) Urgent reduction of atmospheric CO2 to a safe level of about 300 ppm as recommended by leading climate and biological scientists; and (3) Rapid switch to the best non-carbon and renewable energy (solar, wind, geothermal, wave, tide and hydro options that are currently roughly the same market price as coal burning-based power) and to energy efficiency, public transport, needs-based production, re-afforestation and return of carbon as biochar to soils coupled with correspondingly rapid cessation of fossil fuel burning, deforestation, methanogenic livestock production and population growth (see "Climate Emergency Facts and Required Actions" of Melbourne-based Yarra Valley Climate Action Group: http://sites.google.com/site/yarravalleyclimateactiongroup/climate-emergency-facts-and-required-actions ).
Please send this Accountability, Badge and Credo (ABC) protocol to everyone you can.
Nations at Risk from worsening Climatic Disruption – notably in Africa, the Americas and Asia (from drought, floods, mega-delta submergence and increased storm intensity) and Island States (from salinization, submergence and increased hurricane intensity) – should take action over worsening Climate Genocide through the International Criminal Court against greedy climate criminal nations such as Australia, which is a world-leading coal exporter and GHG polluter – thus “annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution” in units of “tonnes CO2-equivalent per person per year” (2005-2008 data) is 2.2 (India), 6.7 (the World), 11 (Europe), 27 (the US) and 30 (Australia; or 54 if Australia’s huge, world-leading Exported CO2 pollution is included). Former UK Chief Scientist Professor David King (Oxford University) urges a decrease of World annual per capita GHG pollution (6.7) to that of India (2.2) (see “Formal complaint to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court reAustralian Government involvement in Aboriginal Genocide, Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Genocide and Climate Genocide”, 2008: http://climateemergency.blogspot.com/2008_02_01_archive.html ).
