30th Anniversary of First Congressional Testimony on Climate Change Can Be Misleading Says Kleyne. Global Collaborative Effort Needed Says Kleyne To Decide What To Do.
Sharon Kleyne, founder and research director of Bio Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and host of the internationally syndicated talk radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water®, Nature’s Pharma®/Water Life Science® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio, noted the thirty-year anniversary of the first testimony about what was then a curious subject: climate change before the Congress of the United States.
Kleyne knows that on June 23rd, 1988 in Washington, D.C., NASA climate scientist James Hansen testified about human-causes of global warming. Hansen startled the committee by declaring that “climate change has begun”. He proceeded to warn the largely indifferent legislators that terrible conditions and consequences would follow inaction. “It’s amazing how remarkably prescient he was when it comes to the predictions he (Hansen) made decades ago and how it’s played out,” says Penn State’s Michael Mann. Mann cites an “eerie match” between Hansen’s forecasts and actual observed global warming ever since.
Kleyne acknowledges Hansen’s findings, yet she believes that the dialogue should be much bigger than it is. “We need millions of people worldwide talking about Earth’s water crisis, including evaporation of the body water, which begins at birth and continues until death,” said Kleyne. “Climate is confusing,” she continued. “Yes, it’s threatened, but we need to stop spending grant and government money for research and reports that argue a certain point of view. We need to talk about all points of view, all over the world, about water, water evaporation of the atmosphere and the body, water run-off that wastes billions of gallons a year, and care of the soil, which is a living organism and is also threatened, But by what?” Kleyne asked, “by whom? We need answers. We need to deliberate, calmly and slowly, and come up with some answers.”
Dr. L. DeWayne Cecil, Ph.D., Principle Scientist at Sustainable Earth Observation Systems, LLC, and a former climate scientist as NASA, says that “I never met sustained interest in a comprehensive water plan. We also have no international climate change plan, no international energy plan.” Hansen, today a professor at Columbia University, concurs. “All we’ve done is agree there’s a problem. We agreed that in 1992 at the Earth summit in Rio and we agreed again in Paris at the 2015 climate accord. We haven’t acknowledged what is required to solve it. Promises like Paris don’t mean much. Such promises are wishful thinking. It’s a hoax that governments have played on us since the 1990s.”
Though it is very late in the game, Hansen still believes that humanity can recover and turn the tide. The solution is simple: a tax on carbon. “Emissions aren’t going to go down,” Hansen says, “if the cost of fossil fuels isn’t honest. Economists are very clear on this. We need a steadily increasing fee that is then distributed to the public.”
Kleyne, skeptical that Hansen’s solution would solve the climate and water crisis, would rather see better education about water and evaporation for billions around the world. “We need to get people involved,” Kleyne said. “We need to get people, especially young people, working together to solve the water crisis and the climate situation.”
