Idea Dreams 6001-6500

~ Idea 6053 ~

Global warming killed 150,000 people in 2000 and the death toll could double in the next 30 years if current trends are not reversed, the UN World Health Organization reported in December 2003.
One heat wave alone killed 20,000 people in Europe this year.
Climate change, linked by scientists to human emissions of gases such as carbon dioxide by cars, airplanes and factories, is causing more frequent floods and droughts and melting ice caps.

“In addition to 150,000 deaths… a further 5.5 million healthy years of life were lost worldwide due to debilitating climate change.”

The 1990s were the hottest decade on record and the upward trend in the world does not seem to be abating.

If climate trends continue, the situation will worsen, approximately doubling by 2030.

Robert's Golden Sayings
There is not one form of happiness: there are myriads of them. Each human being must find his particular form of happiness from his nature, his environment and the vast diversity of society. You might find happiness in God, in a garden, in a workshop, in a laboratory, in service to others, in the present, in the past or in the future.

My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 6

I was once asked:

"What astonished you most in the UN?"

I answered:

"That 1, the son of a poor hatmaker from Alsace Lorraine, was allowed to work there for 38 years and to become an AssistantSecretary General."


From Connie:

Got water?

$46 billion
- Amount spent per year globally on bottled water
$1.7 billion - Amount needed per year beyond current spending to provide clean drinking water to everyone on earth
More than one billion - Number of people worldwide who lack reliable access to safe drinking water
80 - Percentage of world illnesses due to water-borne diseases

Read about other water issues in Sojourners magazine:
+ Who Owns Your Water?
+ Who Controls the Spigot?

If it is to be, it's up to me, and you, so "It's Up To Us"!!!
