When he says "Decisive, Large-Scale Action", we here at Global Community Network wholeheartedly agree, because we know that one of our projects, The Water Movement, could potentially be the largest agricultural and habitat restoration project our planet quite possibly may ever see, and we believe it is an idea which our planet, our people and our future desperately needs.
We can make history, or we can be vilified by our inaction. We urge people who have resources to contribu...te, whether it be time and energy, money, connections, skills, et cetera, to make the move it takes within their souls to do so, and to do so without hesitation or fear.
Contact us through the Global Community Network email outreach, firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know how you want to get involved. It's that easy to get started! While the problem may seem huge, our solution is bigger than our problem.
Leonardo DiCaprio addressed the UN Climate Summit this morning in his new role as U.N. Messenger of Peace. Watch this raw video excerpt from his speech.
Large-scale, decisive action...
Still fairly sure we can get this issue under control by utilizing concentrated sunlight to simultaneously generate power and desalinate massive amounts of seawater which we then pipeline up mountains and far inland in order to irrigate massive tracts of strategically-planted desert land which will simultaneously sequester carbon, slow global wind patterns and provide high-quality organic produce and natural building materials. Sure, the entire plan we have been suggesting is a bit more complicated than what one can manage to fit into one run-on sentence, however it is all possible and scientifically viable. Sure would love the opportunity to make it happen.
Unfortunately, California isn’t the only place that’s been inundated by deadly fires. This is the human face of climate change — and we must act.
Direct Democracy. It's a right we have every right to claim. The 9th amendment guarantees that. ROAR!
From protest to power... been talking about this for YEARS, anybody actually want to get with the program yet, or should we just keep to complaining that we can't do anything? Because, we could have this worked out in relatively short order...
"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.*”

Common Vision is once again gathering 18 educators and artists to inspire thousands of kids with planting fruit trees, making art, and growing living classrooms in California public schools. January 24-March 11: Hone your skills in pruning and irrigation, make art with students about growing a more just society, and work and laugh with a group of dedicated change-makers.
* So this quote is often falsely attributed to Martin Luther King, Jr. This confusion happens because it was (falsely) attributed to Martin Luther (16th Century Protestant Reformation) when it was being used by German churches to inspire hope and perseverance during opposition to the Nazi dictatorship.
Growing good fruits with the youths!
Big move forward for the rights of all beings...
In lieu of any gifts, a good friend wanted people he knows to read this for his birthday. By sharing this, I'm hoping others will also, then this can be a gift that keeps on giving.
None of this should be necessary.
Yet it sadly is wholly necessary.
Yet again, justice is only part of this....
We should be all living in the paradise this earth is, and because of the overriding reasons of the greed, hatred and foolishness of some, we are all still in need of taking action and making moves to move the movements.
We don't just need a president who is willing, though not a bad place to start. We need 100 Senators, 435 Representatives, 50 Governors and same respective numbers of state legislators elected in the coming years to replace this oligarchy with the necessary government to create the change we need to be. In every government, worldwide.
Part of getting there is 110% commitment to boycotting any products made by the oligarchy, and 110% commitment to boycotting any group which uses those products.
Half measures will avail us nothing.
On the other side is paradise, and we do not mean the other side of death. This whole planet is the place to be, and not one person needs to die for this goal to become realised. We have been to every place on this planet and the promised land is not somewhere to which we need to journey, the promised land is somewhere we must create, here and now. We're gonna make it if we know we can. We here at the GCN know we can.
This is why we're here on this planet today. How about you?
Join The Water Movement and the Global Community Network if creating a future worth having is important for you, and start making moves the move the movements. Justice may only be a part of this, however it is an extremely important part of us all being able to live on this planet and breathe clean air, drink clean water, eat clean food and be able to enjoy a true sense of peace on this earth. We all deserve this and we are all worth it. We at the GCN do entirely believe that is why we are all here.
Well this is good news from a bad situation, and it's about time. More of this type of action would be good in the many instances of corporate abuse of the public good.
Making changes, taking control of things... And letting things be the way they were in the beginning... We are the ones we've been waiting for, and we can be the change we wish to see, we just need to want it. The number of us wanting it grows every day.
Brazilian farmer Ernst Gotsch bought 1,200 acres of completely deforested land on the edge of the rainforest in 1984. Check out our video of the week to see how... he worked with nature to transform the land into an incredibly biodiverse working farm capable of feeding people and reversing climate change through sequestering carbon:
