Pitch

To ask the whole population of the whole world, to use less carbon energy, through all the news services of all the countries of the world.


Description

Summary

"Dear Population of the Whole World"

The magnitude of the world carbon energy economy,

the magnitude of world annual carbon dioxide emissions,

accumulating atmospheric carbon dioxide,

global warming, climate change, heatwaves,

sea level rise, arctic and antarctic sea ice loss,

oceans' warming and acidificaton and de-oxygenation,

and coral bleaching, are all now known,

to be real and progressive and alarming scientific phenomena.

 

Do you think it could soon become time,

for the whole world's political

and scientific and journalist communities,

to have to start requesting

every news service of every country in the world,

to have to start requesting

the whole population of the whole world,

to please help

by choosing to use less carbon energy voluntarily ?

 

For example, these are the fairest words, i could think of,

for addressing the whole population of the whole world,

as in a letter, for broadcasting in a transmission

through all the world's news services:

 

"Dear Population of the Whole World,

As end users of carbon energy, and by freedom of choice,

please remember to choose to use less carbon energy,

every day, forever more,

in order to help reduce world daily carbon dioxide emissions,

forever more,

in order to help prevent global warming and climate change,

forever more."

 

I believe, if asked,

the whole population of the whole world,

could voluntarily, and conscientiously,

reduce its use of carbon energy, by 10% - 20% - 30%,

which would really help.


 

 


Is this proposal for a practice or a project?

Project


What actions do you propose?

For example

in the UK

the co-operation will need to be obtained

from BBC Radio 4 news service journalists

and from lead scientists

who have had a public output

through the BBC Radio 4 news service

 

As a BBC Radio 4 listener

I am acutely aware that BBC Radio 4

needs a stimulus to improve its output

to the UK population

regarding global warming and climate change

 

But this can only be done by a project

which involves BBC Radio 4 journalists

and lead scientists

who are going to work in agreement to achieve this aim

 

In the UK we have the term "BBC English"

which is true

 

In effect the BBC establish and maintain

an accepted lexicon of words and terms

which are understood

to be understood by the UK population.

 

In my understanding

the BBC lexicon

needs to be developed and improved

in order to help improve

the UK's population's response

to global warming and climate change

 

For example

I would request theses terms

to be added to the BBC lexicon

(1) carbon energy is an economic good

(2) one by product of the world carbon energy economy

is accumulating atmospheric carbon dioxide

(3) accumulating atmospheric carbon dioxide

is causing global warming and climate change

(4) the whole population of the whole world

are responsible to reducing thier use of carbon energy

(5) the news service of every country in the world

are responsible for reminding their country's population

of these facts

(6) the news service of every country in the world

have the privilege of addressing their country's population

every day

(7) yes we all live lives as individuals

but we also live as a population of a country

and we also live as a world population

 

 

 

 


Who will take these actions?

So the principle aim of my project is

(1) to gain the co-operation

of bbc radio 4 journalists

and lead scientists in the uk

who will agree to work

to improve the bbc lexicon

(2) the bbc news service

will then be able to address

the uk population

more clearly and more directly

about global warming and climate change

and its cause

the world carbon energy economy

(3) the bbc news service

will then be able to begin

to fairly request the uk population

to please begin to choose to use less carbon energy

voluntarily and by freedom of choice

(4) the uk population will then begin to understand

their responsibility and their ability

to choose to use less carbon energy

voluntarily and by freedom of choice

(5) by extension

this project can be expanded to include

the news service of every country in the world

and thereby the population of every country in the world

and thereby the whole population of the whole world

will then be able begin to understand

their responsibility and their ability

to choose to use less carbon energy

voluntarily and by freedom of choice

 

 

 


Where will these actions be taken?

Initially in the UK

working with bbc journalists

and lead scientists in the uk

in order to begin to address

the whole population of the uk

 

but once established in the uk

this project is extensible to every country in the world

and then the whole population of the whole world

can be addressed

 

 

 


In addition, specify the country or countries where these actions will be taken.

United Kingdom


Country 2

No country selected


Country 3

No country selected


Country 4

No country selected


Country 5

No country selected


Impact/Benefits


What impact will these actions have on greenhouse gas emissions and/or adapting to climate change?

i believe

if asked

the whole population of the uk

could voluntarily and by freedom of choice

reduce their use of carbon energy

by 10% to 20% to 30%

which would really help

 

and by extension

if asked

the whole population of the whole world

could voluntarily and by freedom of choice

reduce their use of carbon energy

by 10% to 20% to 30%

which would really really help

 

 

 


What are other key benefits?

this is very interesting

if the population of the uk

and by extensioon

the population of the world

discovered they could choose to use less carbon energy

they would then discover

they are spending less money on carbon energy

and therefore

they would have more money to save

or more money to spend in other economies

 

 


Costs/Challenges


What are the proposal’s projected costs?

the project would not cost too much

initially it could cost possibly 1 month's work

with co-operating journalists from the bbc

and lead scientists in the uk

 

money and travel

and carbon emissions due to travel could be reduced

by working

(1) by written work in emails

(2) telephone calls

(3) teleconferencing using the internet

 

 


Timeline

the project's timeline

initially could be 1 year to implementation

but once established it could continue indefinitely
