2/ "It’s Too Late to Avoid #Disaster, but There Are Still Things We Can Do
Our #leaders need to speak some hard truths and then develop a strategy to prevent the worst.
3/ Of all the resources lacking in the #Covid19 #pandemic pandemic, the one most desperately needed in the United States is a UNIFIED NATIONAL STRATEGY, as well as the confident, coherent and consistent #leadership to see it carried out.

#Storytelling.

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

#PuertoRico #USA #PuertoRicoEarthquakes

#PuertoRico still doesn't seem calm after so many #storms, and this Saturday there was a new 6.0 MI magnitude #earthquake on the momentum magnitude scale as part of a series of #aftershocks that have intensified since Friday night.
According to Prensa Latina, the meteorological phenomenon occurred in #Guánica, 14.87 kilometers south of #Peñuelas, at a depth of 5.04 kilometers.
On the other hand, the #NationalGuard of #PuertoRico considered declaring the island a #disaster area in order to receive additional funds after the #earthquakes.

This morning I’ve been reviewing our back catalogue of articles about #disaster #grantmaking & it seems we already know a lot about how to give #grants & other #funding in the wake of a crisis like the #bushfires - a thread for grantmakers & other institutional funders:
Following the 2004 tsunami, we searched for international best practice and interviewed a range of local folk about how to do disaster grantmaking better. We cautioned grantmakers not to rush in, but to pause and see how they could help fill gaps later.
We interviewed orgs like @PhilanthropyAus and philanthropy experts like @mliffman. Michael Liffman told us that amidst the emotion & frenzy of giving, professional grantmakers should take a sober approach.

California, Amazon, Siberia, Australia & Jakarta is not just a news as many take it.#ClimateEmergency is here, right here!
When 50000000 animals are said to be charred, this fire is said to have created its own weather system now. #disaster
The smoke fumes from d bushfires of Australia creates 'pyrocumulonimbus' clouds which inturn brings heavy downpour with thunderstorms and heavy lightning that's fuelling more fires. There are chances of fire tornado as well. It is said the fire flames are upto 20ft. 2/n
The fire-induced storms can spread fires through lightning & severe wind outflows says Bureau of Metrology Australia. The fire plumes is said to affect to Stratosphere too. Ground temp is on raise affecting d temp balance at ocean thereby d Coral Reefs too.
Scary Future ahead!

After seeing multiple tweets about the @DeptDefence response to #AustraliaBurning, I feel it’s #education time on #YourADF and how it relates to the #constitutionalmonarchy #government in #Australia. #AustralianFires #auspol #miltwitter 1/6
Under the Australian #constitution, #emergency and #disaster preparation, management, and recovery is the responsibility of each individual state or territory #government. #AustralianFires #ausfires #auspol #miltwitter 2/6
If the situation deteriorates and the effected state cannot handle the response, they can request federal assistance under the Australian Government Disaster Response Plan (#COMDISPLAN). #ausfires #miltwitter More here: homeaffairs.gov.au/emergency/file… 3/6

@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics We averted a #Shutdown this week, but did so by having Congress pass a continuing resolution, aka "kicking the can down the road until the week before Christmas"
...when MoCs always make great decisions, right? (cough, #GOPTaxScam)

Welcome to #NATO 101. Lesson 1
"The mere lack of #military #power is, in itself, not enough to cause a nation to lose its position vis-à-vis other states. That only happens when the people lose their individual integrity and the country gradually loses its national #integrity...
#NATO 101, Lesson 2
"No-one wants to cooperate with a country that has lost its integrity. [Even when] other countries have dealt unreasonably... who would want to damage the amity extant between [us, just by] sticking up for a state that has no national #integrity to begin with?
#NATO 101, Lesson 3.
"Many countries haven’t lost their international #prestige merely because of #poverty and #weakness... natural #disaster and poor #geography are enough to make a country weak and poor, and that can move others to sympathy. But lack of #integrity?

It's already #4thofJuly2018 here in #NewZealand and the #antifa uprising has started. A bunch of them came to my house to take my guns. When I didn't have any they got mad. They took away my wife and made me gay marry an immigrant gang instead. Don't ignore the warnings.
In the street #antifa mobs are pouring biodiesel on piles of flags and using them to like giant scented-oil burners but with drums full of estrogen. I never knew people had so many flags. I guess they were keeping them in hiding. #4thofJuly2018
Instead of the flag we now pledge allegiance the Mann hockey stick climate change graph. We all have to kneel in front of it and sing the anthem five times a day. The anthem now is "Girls & Boys" by Blur but with the words rewritten so it's communism. #antifa #4thofJuly2018
