Hansen: The current increase in global warming is "...equivalent to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs per day, 365 days per year. That’s how much extra energy Earth is gaining each day."

Слайд 29

If global warming exceeds 1.6°C up to 31% of Earth’s species will be committed to extinction, having nowhere to go to escape the rising heat

Слайд 30

Слайд 31

What on Earth are we doing?

Слайд 32

The last time the world was 3°C warmer, during the Pliocene era, the sea level was up to 25 metres higher and we are currently on track for 4°C, 5°C or 6°C warmer

Слайд 33

2 metres 10 metres 18 metres 25 metres

Слайд 34

If all of Earth’s polar ice melted 70 metres sea-level rise 92 metres 70 metres

Слайд 35

2°C is “far into the dangerous range.” If the current rate of emissions continues much longer, “it will become exceedingly difficult to keep the warming below a target smaller than 2°C.” - James Hansen

Слайд 36

2°C of warming, Hansen’s team says, will have consequences that will be “disastrous,” and which will “cause major dislocations for civilization.”

Слайд 37

Which of us is going to raise a hand and say, “Yes, it’s worth it”?

A billion years The Sun does not begin to turn into a Red Giant for more than a billion years. And with every passing year, solar technology will improve and get cheaper.

Albert Einstein: “A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Francis Crick: “The Astonishing Hypothesis is that "You," your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules. As Lewis Carroll's Alice might have phrased it: "You're nothing but a pack of neurons."

Слайд 107

“Whatever consciousness is—however it relates to the brain—dogs, birds and legions of other species have it. “ “Our knowledge is but a fire lighting up the vast darkness around us, flickering in the wind. So, let us be open to alternative, ratinal explanations in the quest for the sources of consciousness.”

Слайд 108

Max Planck: “I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”

Слайд 109

Wolfgang Pauli: “It is my personal opinion that the science of the future reality will be neither ‘psychic’ nor ‘physical’, but somehow both and somehow neither.”

Слайд 110

Sir Arthur Eddington: “The universe is of the nature of a thought or sensation in a universal Mind. To put the conclusion crudely – the stuff of the world is mind-stuff. As is often the way with crude statements, I shall have to explain that by “mind” I do not exactly mean mind and by “stuff” I do not at all mean stuff. Still that is about as near as we can get to the idea in a simple phrase.”

Слайд 111

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: “We are logically forced to assume the existence in rudimentary form … of some sort of psyche in every corpuscle, even in those (the mega molecules and below) whose complexity is of such a low or modest order as to render it (the psyche) imperceptible.”

The First Law of Syntropy “Acting through consciousness, syntropy motivates individual units of being to self-organize cooperatively within their empathic reach to achieve greater organizational power, range, competence, integrity and freedom for the common good.” - Guy Dauncey

Слайд 123

The Second Law of Syntropy “In the long run, due to the deep fundamental unity of the Universe, any unit of being that extends its empathy beyond its familiar reach will discover affinity with other units of being. Over time, the syntropic self-organizing impulse will result in ever-widening circles of empathy, until they embrace the entire Universe.” - Guy Dauncey

The Gratitude Pledge In gratitude for having been given the gift of Life, and the wonders that accompany it; In gratitude for Earth our home, for Nature, and for the many beautiful species we share it with; In gratitude for all who are working to make this world a better place, and all who have done so in the past, stretching far back into the mists of time; In gratitude for the freedom I have been given to choose my path, as I take my turn in carrying the baton of life; In gratitude for these gifts, I pledge that I will use my life to serve the betterment of humankind, the healing of suffering, and the restoration of our beautiful planet the Earth.. - Guy Dauncey

FARM VILLAGES The Way of the Future

Слайд 154

A lot of Vancouver Island farmland is growing hay

Слайд 155

Good farmland sits empty Young people want to farm

Слайд 156

Слайд 157

Using small-scale intensive organic horticulture, farmers can earn to earn up to $25,000 an acre, grossing up to $80,000 a year profit per small farm.

Слайд 158

Throughout the world, in every culture, farmers have lived in small farm villages

Слайд 159

Слайд 160


Слайд 161

By 2034, on any farm of more than (eg) 40 hectares, 1 hectare may be rezoned as a Community Farm Village and additional acreage may be leased or sold for farming purposes.

Слайд 162

Community Farmland Zone Allows development of a clustered Farm Village with controls to ensure the land is farmed: A: Community Farmland Zone Bylaw B: Farming Covenant registered with land C: Strata Farm Fees – if land is not farmed D: Registered Housing Agreement restricting residential units to farmers and their families.

Also, in the future …

Слайд 171

In 2034, land zoned agricultural carries a requirement from the time of purchase that at least 25% of the land be used to grow food …

Слайд 172

or be leased to someone who will.
