CitizenSolution - Problems Solutions Actions

2030


In the next few years, people are going to start to catch on about the climate and environmental emergency we are facing. Don't get mad at them, just lead them down the correct path and help them and encourage them.

We Can Help


Since 2013 Citizen Solution has been online talking about the problems we face, the solutions that are available, and the actions we need to take to safeguard our world.We do this because we believe that ordinary citizens have the ability to inform, educate, engage and inspire other citizens to make the necessary changes.


Today, we are making big plans in our efforts to assist, guide & support ordinary citizens, like yourself, through these next 10 years.Our first effort is a new portal site - Citizen Solution.org which offers access to the facts, the solutions, and the actions you will need. We call this: KNOW, GROW and GO.To date, the sites related to this effort are: Citizen Solution.org, Citizen Solution.co, and Navigating a New World.com.

Finding Solutions & Taking Action


Citizen Solution believes that through public support of strong national and international policy solutions and reform, combined with the equally strong efforts of ordinary citizens we can face these and other challenges to make this world better, cleaner, and more livable for everything living on the planet.We also believe that ordinary citizens have the ability to inform, educate, engage and inspire other citizens to make the necessary changes.We only have 10 short years to solve many of these problems and failure is not an option!
Let’s get started.

Know the Facts

"You can't really know where you are going until you know where you have been."
~ Maya Angelou



Get the Facts ▪ Know the Basics ▪ Argue Respectfully

Fact-based knowledge is at your fingertips (literally) so don't stop there. Once you learn the facts you can build your knowledge. With knowledge, you can inform, educate, argue and persuade. But you first need to know and communicate the truth.Start Here:

Basic Climate Information

The Basics

  • Direct observations made on and above Earth’s surface show the planet’s climate is significantly changing. ~ NASA

  • Human activity, especially greenhouse gas emissions, is considered the dominant cause of temperature increases. ~ BBC

  • Greenhouse gas emissions are caused by burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation. ~ U.S. EPA

Find Solutions

“Science is nothing but the process of finding solutions.”
~ Debasish Mridha


The one thing to remember is that there is no "silver bullet" or single solution to solve our challenges.We must work together to overcome these challenges.As individuals, we must be mindful of the personal things we can do BUT as a unified force, we must work collaboratively to live within the bounds and offerings of the only planet we inhabit.

Seven Areas of Focus:

  • Stop Extracting

  • Stop Burning

  • Stop Spreading

  • Stop Polluting

  • Stop Over Producing

  • Stop Over Consuming

  • Stop Wasting

------------------- Learn More -------------------

We are focused on curating solutions from other professionals that really understand the stakes and the practical requirements of implementation.

Just Have A Think

The economical, ecological, and social consequences of our climate emergency.


Dave Borlace, does a magnificent job in presenting climate issues, actions, and technology opportunities in his educational series "Just Have A Think".Although his videos fall naturally into our Solutions category, Dave has created an additional set of videos that appear bi-weekly or monthly called "Just Have Another Think". These presentations address the economical, ecological, and social consequences of our climate emergency.

These videos are 15-20 minutes long and we suggest you start from the first one Dave created in the Spring of 2018 and work your way to the most current productions.Each video contains links to the specific reference material Dave talks about and additional links to other intelligent climate videos.Know, Grow, Go!!

Sustainability Illustrated

"Climate change isn’t about stopping one bad guy…"


The oldest illustrative video we found by Alex Magnin creator of "Sustainability Illustrated" is from December 2015. It's called climate change isn’t about stopping one bad guy… and references COP21.

Most of Alex's creations are illustrated videos but some of just illustrations. A classic and impart series is:
Petroleum & Curious Decisions One, Two and Three. These are very informative.

ReThinkX

Disruption.Implications.Choices.


RethinkX, co-led by Tony Seba, is an independent think tank created "to forecast the speed and scale of technology-driven disruptions across industry sectors and their implications across society.Visit Rethinkx and download their free book "Rethinking Humanity".Also Rethinking Climate Change

RethinkX, contends that "a person can become more prosperous", not by wealth and riches, but "by leveraging knowledge alone to change their personal mindset and outlook.""Our research at RethinkX has shown unequivocally that climate change is a solvable problem, and that prosperity is of course the solution."

Disruption.

RethinkX, contends that "a person can become more prosperous", not by wealth and riches, but "by leveraging knowledge alone to change their personal mindset and outlook.""Our research at RethinkX has shown unequivocally that climate change is a solvable problem, and that prosperity is of course the solution."

Implications

"Getting to Net Zero emissions is not a solution to climate change, but is just the first step on a journey that is much longer than most of us realize.""Cutting consumption and emissions only reduces the flow from the faucet. It does nothing at all to drain the stock of water we’ve already added to the tub. The impacts of climate change will be catastrophic unless we do both within the next few decades."

Choices

"Our common sense tells us that when something we’re doing is creating a problem, the solution usually isn’t just to do less of that thing, but to do something different.""The same is true for climate change. The solution is clean energy, transportation, and food."

"In our research report, Rethinking Climate Change, we explain that the disruption of energy (by solar power, wind power, and batteries), transportation(by electric vehicles, autonomous driving, and ride sharing), and food (by precision fermentation and cellular agriculture) will allow us to reduce net emissions 90% by 2035, on track to going far below zero into a deep carbon withdrawal regime in the 2040s.A crucial finding of our research is that these eight technologies we need to solve climate change already exist. They are science fact today, not science fiction."

Project DrawDown

Laying out solutions for stopping catastrophic climate change - as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.

"Since the 2017 publication of the New York Times bestseller Drawdown, the organization has emerged as a leading resource for information and insight about climate solutions." Now the website Drawdown offers over 80 doable solutions "that can stem and begin to reduce the excess of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere."

These are real solutions that cover Energy, Agriculture, Industry, Transportation, Buildings, Health & Education and Sinks for Land, Ocean, Technology.
