America's Global Environment Crisis or Not, Is it really important

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.Wikipedia on climate change says, "The United States is the second largest emitter, after China, of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels. The energy policy of the United States is widely debated; many call on the country to take a leading role in fighting global warming.


Red Sky at Morning by James Gustavo Speth is a great read about this topic.

 James writes, "Pollution.Pollutants of many varieties threaten biodiversity.
Toxic substances; oxygen-demanding wastes; nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and 
phosphorous overfertilization; acidification; and photochemical oxidants (ozone)
all degrade the structure and functioning of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems."

In the US alone the Gulf of Mexico is toxic with oil, we’ve caused earthquakes in the midwest when Fracking for natural gas, and 
we’ve blasted the tops off mountains in Virginia looking for coal.
When we turn non-renewable resources into energy we’re releasing toxic gases into the atmosphere, driving climate change and creating a hazardous issues around for all living beings.

Red Sky at Morning talks about the Eight Steps to Sustainability by having citizens engage and individuals doing things to promote each of these eight steps towards sustainability. Transition 5 on Sustainable Consumption is already an on-going effort today where it focuses on greening consumer purchases.It also touches on Center for a New American Dream an organization giving useful resources on "lifestyle shifts" including guides on how to buy green, parent in a consumer society and they advocate for changes that support more sustainable consumption as the author wrote.

So with recent executive order directing the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency  to withdraw the Clean Power Plan  although concerning as far environment activist are, inn lieu of all the organizations and work in place through the years, “The Trump administration has to go through the same process of putting in a regulation as the Obama administration [did],” Orts noted.

In conclusion, the threat on America and the Global Environment is real. Hence, we have to be pro-active as citizens on protecting the environment and working towards sustainability.  The US however has been a leader on environment science, and any action to damage this would risk climate science so it is imperative we continue to advocate for environmental issues.

America's Dreyus Nixon's Case to Trump's Present Scenario

America's Dreyfus written by Bestselling Author Joan Brady author of the Theory of War writes on the trial of the century during the Nixon years. Similar to incumbent Donald Trump, Richard Nixon also had a single aim in life, "Win".
In 2016 this book had so many reviews about the real story of Alger Hiss. Joan Brady believes that Hiss was innocent but thinks, as did many of his friends at the time, that he was suicidally naive about what he faced. Chambers had appeared before HUAC in 1948 and, in the fashion of the day, had produced a list of alleged communists in government service.
The main summary of this book is that it is about the dirty tricks employed by Richard Nixon and his allies in the late 1940s and early 1950s to secure the conviction of Alger Hiss, a former government official, on a trumped-up charge of perjury. 
Thus, the start of the discussion on the statements of conversations could have been taped, was just a strategy to ensure the loyalty of Former FBI …

The Economy as 2016 winds up to a close and Obama's leaves a legacy

2016 started strong with it's ups and downs on the economy. As we wind down the year amidst a change in the administration on January 20, 2017, 
It has been said that the election of President elect Trump gave a good economic indicator boost from the investments and banking industry in lieu of his plans on taxes, jobs and the like, the future still lies beneath.
Such boost as economists' stated would have not made an impact if Hillary Clinton had won as the markets transcends Clinton was a carry over of the Obama policies.
Yet economist noted that the US economy has been stable and strong with Barack Obama's legacy of job creation and turning around the biggest recession in modern time after taking over the reign from George W. Bush in 2008.
With an average of 180,000 monthly jobs created from January 2016 to the elections in November 2016, the labor market had been growing in the last 74 months.
In Spite of this, the business investments and new productivity efforts did n…

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

Touching on Hillary's campaign rift with the Democratic party and talking about the reluctance of supporters of Bernie Sanders in supporting Clinton as front runner sort of explained initially why people then thought they had a flawed presidential candidate.

The book discusses on Clinton's winning the popular vote yet was not really successful in getting a lot of Senator Sanders supporters. Although Sec. Clinton's campaign staff are her deep loyalist, she spent enormous amounts of time asking existential questions to them.

Yet in summary although the book centers around on the ultimate failure of Hillary, the problematic circumstances and fiasco has nothing to do with her.
