    We need to: 1) Replace fossil fuel with renewable energy, preferably from military industrial complex firms in same Congressional districts as military pork to REPLACE the military pork. 2) Barter the renewable energy for fossil fuel as reserves to hold underground forever. 3) Capture and store carbon. Global Thermostat claims that averaged over the whole job of capturing almost 37 trillion tons of CO2 the cost will average $25/ton for a total of $920 trillion, close to 100 times United States annual GDP, but spread out over more than 200 years so peak spending will be about 50% of US GDP at point when concentration in atmosphere peaks at about 500 ppm CO2 eq. and starts to come down. Normal is a little over 300 ppm CO2 eq. It is a huge project. We need to start NOW. It is bigger than World War II was. Replacing fossil fuel will cost almost as much as our total military spending is now, and half our military spending needs to remain military spending to defend our territory.

    Pgfs 5-10 were good. I don't really see us having much of a "planetary consciousness", though. What's interesting, and powerful, about consciousness is that it's aware of itself. The billions of brain cells are firing, and thousands of thoughts are formed, but only one voice is heard in one's consciousness. Similarly, while many of us are aware of global warming, we're not yet aware of our agreement, or concern. We don't yet have a way to speak so that one voice emerges.

    This is the possibility of PeopleCount.org, billions of people communicating coherently, constructively, and hearing ourselves, designing our future. We're starting out simply, and all too slowly. This, or something like it, will make the difference.

    Hi Daniel. The image that you're using to speak about Maya culture is completely wrong, the image correspond to Aztec/Mexica culture, those are Mictlantecuhtli and Quetzalcoatl from the Borgia Codex. Nothing to do with the Mayas.
    If you use it as a opening for your article, you lost all your credibility.

    A true challenge is staying in a productive and loving state of mind while grappling with the vast schism between a harmonious lifestyle and the one that we currently enjoy. Doing my part to transform inside of myself and appreciate immensely stumbling upon your article - look forward to watching your movie on Netflix when it becomes available in Argentina. Kudos on your Marx meets Chardin view of human's place in the planet ~ lets keep our home clean, eh? :)
