    BRIDGEWALK: A Path to Prevent a Looming Cataclysm
    Posted on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 @ 20:48:39 GMT by vlad

    Investors By Mark Goldes /Updated March 14, 2007

    The Brooklyn Bridge...the most completely satisfying structure of any kind.../Lewis Mumford

    A monument to man's ingenuity and creativity, this world famous steel suspension bridge connects Brooklyn and Manhattan. It was built between 1867 and 1883.

    Inspired by the extraordinary film, Mindwalk, Bridgewalk is intended to provide constructive alternatives that offer hope of preventing the, thus far, little publicized looming Global Warming apocalypse.

    The Manhattan Project was the incubator for nuclear weapons – Bridgewalk is a path to what might be called The Brooklyn Project, the other side of the bridge. It is intended to open and accelerate new paths, as well as provide new perspectives, toward averting catastrophe and creating a more peaceful and prosperous planet.

    The Manhattan Project was secret, centralized in a few locations, and run by the government. The Brooklyn Project is open, decentralized, world-wide, and encourages the support of private, innovative, entrepreneurial development.

    The Summary Report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change led to the conclusion that drastic shifts are happening much more rapidly than earlier predicted. Scientists now state that by the year 2050, one billion Asians will lack water and up to six hundred million people will suffer climate induced hunger. Malaria, Dengue Fever and other diseases "will run rampant." By 2080, three billion people will lack water and each year as many as one hundred million could be victims of rising seas.

    Even worse, life on earth is threatened with extinction by a little known lurking disaster – the release of huge quantities of methane trapped in the Arctic tundra. Twice before, 55 million and 251 million years ago, naturally occurring methane “burps”, possibly resulting from volcanic eruptions, almost wiped out life on our planet. If humanity continues to emit carbon as a result of the burning of fossil fuels, we are in serious danger of triggering this irreversible event by the middle of the current century.

    Geologist John Atcheson has pointed out that a temperature rise of 11 degrees Fahrenheit, substantially less than the upper figure predicted by computer models from the burning of fossil fuels, could launch this runaway effect by 2050. However, the reality is likely even worse, as the arctic regions are showing the greatest temperature increases from greenhouse gas emissions. Burning fossil fuels each year spews into the atmosphere the equivalent of almost 17,000 volcanoes the size of the presently active one in Hawaii. This time bomb is more likely to explode with every passing year.

    It is even more of a problem than water shortages, widespread hunger and disease, melting arctic ice, the predicted flooding of major cities such as New York, London, Tokyo, Miami, and Singapore, and the increase in destructive hurricanes.

    The urgent need is an emergency changeover, within a decade, to widespread use of new sources of energy that eliminate the need for fossil fuels. That goal is now in sight.
    Several firms, including our own affiliate, Magnetic Power Inc., are pioneering revolutionary, inexpensive, renewable, energy conversion technology that can yield cost-effective, mass-produced, alternatives in the immediate future.

    Aikido is about leverage. Aikido is the most subtle of the martial arts. It turns the energy of an opponent in such a way that small efforts encourage enormous effects. When the Greek mathematician Archimedes first defined the principle of leverage 23 centuries ago, he said, “Give me a place to stand, and I will move the Earth.” Aikido is an attitude that can leverage social, economic and political movement. The Brooklyn Project will enlist concerned allies and apply the principle of Aikido to catalyze the urgently needed changes.

    Ironically, this new threat may serve to gradually cause terrorism to subside. It is a classic axiom of political science that a people will unite against an external enemy. Since everyone on earth is threatened by continuing to burn fossil fuels, it is conceivable that the people of this shrinking planet will begin to find common ground in a manner previously thought to be unimaginable.

    If we define toil as work not freely chosen, no matter how seemingly simple, all work we choose, no matter how difficult, falls under the psychological category of play. Another goal of Bridgewalk is to encourage efforts to reduce the time people spend -- at work they have not chosen -- to twenty hours each week. The money earned during the remaining half of the nominal forty hour week will need to be replaced with diversified investment income, ideally derived from firms that hold to a high ethical standard.

    We can think of a twenty hour week as five four hour days. Alternatively, as a thought experiment, examine the possibility of two ten hour days – with five days each week to employ and enjoy as we wish. Some of the positive implications are obvious. One small example would be a dramatic reduction in commute traffic.

    Many, if not most, people are trapped by mortgage payments, car payments, etc., in jobs they do not love. There is a simple test: Would they continue to do the same work without pay?

    Only a few fortunate individuals have the freedom to learn who they are, and more important, who they might become, given the time for both spiritual reflection and inner growth, as well as genuine opportunities to prosper and contribute to the greater material good of mankind; not just in a narrow financial sense. Such truly free citizens would also help to insure an ongoing, enlightened, political discourse, not easily manipulated.

    The late Robert Edmonds, an iconoclastic economist, argued that excess wealth concentration is the root cause of inflation and recession, thus broadening the ownership of wealth may not simply be an ethical concern, but an economic necessity. He designed incentives that could create what he termed “overfull” employment, without inflation, accompanied by expanded ownership opportunities and substantial second incomes. As a consequence the toil component of the work week would gradually diminish.

    This American led accelerated evolution would initiate the most genuinely free society in human history.

    A dashboard style scorecard might be developed to provide a daily, widely diffused, set of indicators to monitor worldwide progress toward Project goals, such as the daily progress toward reduction in the use of fossil fuels. The intention is to make this scorecard as commonplace as the reporting of stock exchange averages.

    Following a film or television or internet video introduction, four quarterly annual celebrations, at the solstices and equinoxes, could be encouraged on television and the internet. Each of these quarterly events will have maximum impact if it launches a television/internet series. These are intended to publicize the work, with a very personal, emotional, touch, well laced with humor. For example, one series might be called: Improbable Innovations Incorporated. It would chronicle the human stories of those, such as Nikola Tesla, whose work produces profound, constructive, change.

    The combination, of celebrations and follow-on programs, constitutes an informal curriculum - in the free university that the planet has become. The objective is widespread understanding of the process of learning how to learn, and the distinction between wisdom and mere knowledge. In this way it should prove possible to accelerate the changeover to non-fossil fuels, encourage charity and justice, and help to heal the many wounds that threaten the world. The discussion of these possibilities by a handful of individuals, during their bridge walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn, can constitute the heart of a film, or series of television or internet videos.

    Mark Goldes is Chairman & CEO of Magnetic Power Inc. in Sebastopol, California. Earlier, he founded SunWind Ltd., a renewable energy firm, and began the non-profit Aesop Institute. He previously was CEO of an economic consulting firm. Once a student of Electrical Engineering, he earned BA and MA degrees at San Francisco State University, and then served two years on active duty with the USAF, culminating as a Senior Director of the Berlin Corridor control radar in Germany. Afterwards, from 1956 thru 1958, he was a Fellow in the Graduate Program in the History of Ideas, at Brandeis University. In 1960, he founded Emerson College of the Monterey Peninsula, and later initiated the free university movement, which spread to 600 locations worldwide.

    BRIDGEWALK and The Brooklyn Project are being born at the non-profit Aesop Institute. Magnetic Power Inc. was created as a commercial affiliate.

    Chicken Licken and Penny Penny again - this clown is screaming fire in a crowded theater only to scare people in order to get rich - another transfer of funds based on deception. 
    If you look at the physics involved, the CO2 absorption bands are essentially saturated therefore higher concentrations of CO2 cannot lead to any significant increased absorption of energy.  The models distort this absorption so the predicted warming is much greater than possible BUT it gets the researchers MORE funds to study the problem further.  Problem: that's MY money and YOUR money.

    The warming is ALL NATURAL (I thought that ALL NATURAL things were good) and due to factors out of our control, e.g. changes in solar output, changes in cosmic ray intensity (thus cloud cover), changes in dust concentrations between earth and the sun, etc.

    This little boy crying wolf is going to get eatten in the end.

    Not if the people who suffer believe it's the wests' fault, which it is !  It is therefore up to the west to provide a solution and to ensure that the emerging massive economies of India and China do not makes things worse. Cheap non polluting energy is deperately needed and whatever form it takes has to go into production within the next year or so to ensure that the ramped production can meet the increased demand.  A solution in 10 years time is too late.

    The time for talk and lengthy articles is over we need a working solution NOW.

    'Carbon Dioxide' Global Warming is a SCAM!!!! (Score: 1)

    The real cause of Global Warming is the changes in the Sun, which, in turn, are rapidly increasing the vibration of the Earth - and that, in turn, causes heat.   The Greenhouse Gas myth is nothing more than that - a myth - and the fact that the governments all around the world are about to install a 'carbon tax' in their system only spells one thing: FRAUD!!!  Don't believe me?  Look at this!  http://www.carbontax.org/

    Mark Goldes, you seriously need to pull your head out of your ass -- but, considering you've been in bed with the enemy for several years, I have no doubt you are a part of this little scam, considering this is all you ever preach here and elsewhere.  No amount of technology or free energy will be able to stop Global Warming because the problem lies with the Sun, not the planet; the changes that are coming are irreversable and are all a part of a grand cycle...and the people who are spewing the 'Global Warming' scam know this -- they're just trying to make a quick buck, just like they did with the Y2K fiasco.

    Anyone who still believes in AGW needs to see this documentary from the BBC.


    It is a very good summmary of the actual science involved. At the very least, AGW true believers need to see this so they know what they have to refute to retain any shred of scientific credibility.

    Mark, I admire what you are doing with your company, but why this absurd belief in AGW against all scientific reasoning?
