THIS POST IS A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF THE ASSESSMENT OF ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING, CLIMATE ACTION, AND THE PARIS AGREEMENT IN TERMS OF YOGIC WISDOM AND INNER KNOWLEDGE AS DESCRIBED IN A YOUTUBE VIDEO [LINK]   

 

THE YOGIC SCIENCE OF CLIMATE SCIENCE, CLIMATE ACTION, AND THE PARIS AGREEMENT {IN THE YOUTUBE VIDEO LINKED ABOVE} WAS DELIVERED IN RESPONSE TO A QUESTION FROM THE AUDIENCE ABOUT HUMAN IMPACTS ON THE PLANET DESCRIBED AS DEPLETING NATURAL RESOURCES AND THREATENING THE ECOLOGICAL WELL BEING OF THE PLANET. THE YOGI REPLIED AS FOLLOWS:  (note: this Youtube video was made in 2015, the year of the Paris Agreement.)

 

  1. RIGHT NOW THEY ARE NEGOTIATING FOR CARBON EMISSION REDUCTION IN PARIS. WHAT I PROPOSE IS A GLOBAL CONTRACT FOR PER CAPITA CONSUMPTION FOR ALL PEOPLE WORLDWIDE. THE HUMAN FOOTPRINT IS MEASURED NOT BY EMISSIONS BUT BY PER CAPITA CONSUMPTION. BUT IN PARIS, THE UN WANTS A DIFFERENT KIND OF CONTRACT THAT REQUIRES DIFFICULT AND COMPLEX NEGOTIATION THAT HAS APPARENTLY STALLED. 
  2. AS FAR AS WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE NEGOTIATIONS IN PARIS, IN ORDER TO CURTAIL HUMAN CONSUMPTION THE BOTTOM LINE IS TO CURTAIL HUMAN ASPIRATION. BUT I CAN TELL YOU THE YOGIC TRUTH THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CURTAIL HUMAN ASPIRATION. 
  3. SINCE WE CAN’T CURTAIL HUMAN ASPIRATION THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO CURTAIL HUMAN POPULATION. OUR WORLD POPULATION HAS GONE FROM 1.6 BILLION IN 1900 TO 7.2 BILLION TODAY. IT IS EXPECTED TO REACH 9.6 BILLION BY 2050 AND 12.1 BILLION IN 2075. IF THIS PROJECTION COMES TO PASS, OUR CHILDREN AND OUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN CANNOT LIVE WELL. THE GREATER DANGER IS THAT IF WE FAIL TO CONTROL POPULATION, NATURE WILL DO IT FOR US AND SHE WON’T BE KIND. 
  4. WE ARE HAVING MORE BABIES AND LIVING LONGER AND THIS IS WHAT IS DRIVING POPULATION GROWTH. THE FORMER YIELDS A YOUNG POPULATION AND THE LATTER AN OLD POPULATION. THERE IS AN ECONOMIC DIVIDEND FOR A YOUNG POPULATION IN TERMS OF PRODUCTIVITY BUT WE CAN’T GO THERE. WE HAVE TO CONTROL POPULATION BY REPRODUCING LESS OR BY LIMITING LONGEVITY OR BOTH. 
  5. THIS IS THE REALITY AND THE ONLY WAY TO DEAL WITH CLIMATE CHANGE.
  6. blogger’s note: Climate change takes us  right back to the population bomb just as Paul Ehrlich had explained in his recent lecture in Australia.

SOME SUPPORT FOR THE CONSUMPTION BASED APPROACH IS FOUND IN THE CLIMATE CHANGE LITERATURE AS SEEN IN THIS CITATION.  

 

CITATION: The case for consumption-based accounting of greenhouse gas emissions to promote local climate action. Author links open overlay panelHogne N.LarsenEdgar G.Hertwich https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envsci.2009.07.010Get rights and content.
ABSTRACT: We argue that a consumption-based perspective, illustrated through the use of the carbon footprint (CF), rather than more conventional production-based inventory, provides a more useful and less misleading indicator. We present an analysis of the CF of municipal services provided by the city of Trondheim. The use of data directly from the city’s accounting system ensures a reliable calculation of indirect emissions, and, with some minor modifications, also accurate data on direct emissions. Our analysis shows that approximately 93 percent of the total CF of municipal services is indirect emissions, located in upstream paths, underlining the need of introducing consumption-based indicators that takes into account upstream GHG emissions.
