Scientists’ Warning— Update
It’s been a great week for Scientists’ Warning. On Tuesday we held a core team meeting with 27 attendees joining our Zoom conference. During the meeting, a participant asked Stuart,”What is the message of Scientists’ Warning?”, which Stuart proceeded to answer providing two key components to message. These points were later summarized by Charles in the meeting notes.
The message of Scientists’ Warning is to point out the central root causes of the crisis:
After the meeting notes were released, Dr. Peter Carter wrote an informative response to Stuart’s two points. His response was used produce a blog post that his wife Julie Johnston edited called “Ethics is the Prime Disorder.”
At this time it would be a propos to remember a quote from Mahatma Ghandi “The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed.”
There was also an extensive discussion about a wonderful Italian video that was posted on our Youtube channel, which translates to “A Letter From the Virus #Listen.”
Another notable development was the creation of a Facebook group. We thank Shani Cairns, Matthew Gahan and Charles for their work in starting this group.
We welcome Bob Garrity, who joined the team about a month ago. Bob has been helping to redesign our website and organize our social media initiatives including the suggestion to issue this newsletter on a weekly rather than monthly basis.
