Recieved this (in a nutshell,) response following a topic on global "what's next".

The "background" stable CO2 concentration is below 250ppm (pre-industrial age).
The latest global average is at 390ppm, rising between 1 and 2 ppm per year.
Eight of the last ten years were the hottest on record, since global measurements have been accurate enough to measure.
Estimates of the tipping point value range from 400 to 450ppm, "the point at which the increase is self-sustaining" -- until the poles melt completely.
Man has never faced a polar meltdown in his existence as a mammal, and has only survived two ice ages, barely. Only those that could migrate to the tropics survived. We are too numerous today. There's nowhere to go.

I am from Maine orig and have family that has been there for yrs & yrs. They see firsthand at what's in the works.

Many say this is just a cycle. I'm a sandbox grad but do not want to wait till "The latest global average is at 390ppm" gets to the estimate tiping point!
Best; Tom

If you haven't heard this, the White House is accusing Fox News of not being a legitimate source of news, calling them biased, etc. They have tried to block Fox reporters from news conferences, etc., but the other news networks are fighting back (in favor of Fox) and caused the White House to back down. NPR has put a survey online for us to voice our opinion. If you want to vote in this survey, go to the link below and cast your vote. Currently it is 71% in favor of the White House, but there are not that many votes ......... less than 2,000 all together. Let's show them how we feel about honest conservative news reporting.

Update: Creigh Deeds says "some of the visceral opposition to the first black president is race-based."

Fairfax, VA - Democrat Creigh Deeds said in a debate he sees "a hint of racism" in some of the opposition to President Barack Obama (web | news | bio) .

In the second of four gubernatorial race debates against Republican rival Bob McDonnell, Deeds said Thursday that he would hope that the nation is beyond racism.

But when asked by moderator David Gregory of NBC's "Meet The Press," Deeds said he regretted that some of the visceral opposition to the first black president is race-based.

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
