With polar sunshades orbiting each pole the climate will cool and return to less chaotic and intense heat. Urgent action is needed on this and we appeal to Space people out there yo unite with a plan. With a few more likes and shares I feel we can find people willing to invest in a plan to make use of reusable rockets and Graphene.
The lag time of several decades in climate change as oceans warm is the reason we must use orbiting shades. The time we need to reduce the blanket covering the planet is more than the time we have to do it. So with out the Earth dimming shades we are wasting our time and energy.

The 21 Most Powerful Copywriting Rules of All Time - Written by Joe Vitale
Writing copy is a key ingredient to successful and effective marketing. The following are notes for a full-length book on how to write copy the sells.
1. Know your USP.
USP = Unique Selling Proposition = a one line statement (proposition) that explains (sells) how your product or service differs (unique) from the competition. You can't know it unless you research your product as well as your competition. What does Federal Express say? Dove soap? You must know your basic offer before you can begin to persuade anyone to accept it.
2. Use layout that supports copy.
Graphics, fonts, and layouts don't sell, but they can help bring attention to your sales message. Use proven formats. Look at the famous Maxwell Sackheim ad in my book, The AMA Complete Guide to Small Business Advertising. Consider an advertorial style. It can get 80% more attention than any other ad layout. You must know the form your sales message will take before you begin to draft your actual message. Knowing you are about to write a classified ad will lead you to write differently than if you were about to write a sales letter or a display ad.
3. Create a riveting and relevant headline.
Round-up your prospects with a headline that makes them sit up and take notice. Best place to see good headlines is on the cover of Reader's Digest. See my AMA advertising book for 30 ways to write headlines. A headline calls out your readers. A change in headline can bring 19 times more response.
4. Write simply, directly, and in the conversational style of your prospects.
Who are you trying to reach? Housewives, business executives, children? You must know the type of person you are writing to. Write to one person from that group and you will speak to all people in that group. Forget trying to impress people, win writing awards, or please a past English teacher. Good copy often violates the rules of English but still makes the sale.
5. So that -- ?
Write of the benefits, not the features. A feature generally describes a product; a benefit generally explains what the product does for you. A good way to write about benefits would be to keep saying you get this...and the product does this...so that you get.... Look at Kodak. People don't buy film for the pictures they create. They are buying memories. Look at their advertising and you'll barely see film anywhere. What you will see are family reunions, graduations, weddings, etc. You get film which helps you take pictures so that you get memories. Keep asking So that -- ? to dig up benefits. For example, This computer is a 486...so that...you get a computer that is twice the speed of other computers...so that...you can get twice the work done in the same amount of time...so that....you are free to have longer lunches, make more calls, or focus on something else.
6. Use emotional appeal.
People buy for emotional reasons and justify with logic. Gene Schwartz wrote an ad that ran for 20 years and sold so many flowers it exhausted nurseries. It's packed with emotional appeal. It read in part:
When you put this into the Earth, and you jump back (quickly), it explodes into flowers. And everybody in your neighborhood comes and they look. And people take home blooms because you've got so many you could never find a house big enough to put them. And you've become the gardening expert for the entire neighborhood.
7. Demolish the five basic objections within your copy:
A. I don't have enough time.
B. I don't have enough money.
C. It won't work for me.
D. I don't believe you.
E. I don't need it.
8. Activate your writing.
Whenever you write the words "is," "was," "are," or "to be," train yourself to stop and change them to something more active. "The meeting is tonight" sounds dead; "The meeting starts at 7 PM sharp tonight" feels clear, direct and alive. "Clair Sullivan is the finest promoter in the country" doesn't convey the excitement that "Clair Sullivan creates corporate events better than anyone else on the planet" does.
9. Tell them something they don't know.
Fascinate your readers. The more you tell, the more you sell. Long copy usually works better than short copy, as long as the copy holds interest. After all, people read whole books. They will read your copy IF it interests them.
10. Seduce the reader into continued reading.
Keep your reader reading any way you can. Questions, unfinished sentences, involving statements, sub-heads, bulleted points, quizzes, all work. These techniques also handle the skimmers who just glance at your copy, as well as the word-for-word readers.
11. Say collie.
Be specific. Whenever you write something vague, such as "they say," or "later on," or "many," train yourself to stop and rewrite those phrases into something more concrete, such as: "Mark Weisser said...", or "Saturday at noon" or "Seven people agreed." Don't say dog when you can say collie.
12. Overwhelm with testimonials
Get as many testimonials as you can. The more specific, the more convincing. In short, deliver proof that your claim is for real.
13. Remove the risk!
Give a guarantee. Less than 2% of your customers will ever ask for their money back, so offering a guarantee is a safe risk. Here's the guarantee from my book, The Seven Lost Secrets of Success (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2007):
Use these seven principles for six months. If you're out of work, you'll find a job. If you're employed, you'll get a raise. If you're in business, you'll see a whopping 25% jump in revenues -- or return this book and your receipt for a full cash refund!
14. Ask for the order
Too much copy these days never asks anyone to buy anything. Sales copy should SELL. Use a coupon as a way to signal readers that you want their business and to remind yourself to always ask for the order (or at least to ask people to contact you or remember you).
15. Use magic words.
There are certain words which have been proven to help get attention. If you just string these words together, they sound like fluff. But weave them into your sentences, along with your facts, and they become powerful:
Announcing, astonishing, exciting, exclusive, fantastic, fascinating, first, free, guaranteed, incredible, initial, improved, love, limited offer, powerful, phenomenal, revealing, revolutionary, special, successful, super, time-sensitive, unique, urgent, wonderful, you, breakthrough, introducing, new, and how-to.
And consider the connotations of the words you use: workshop sounds like hard work while seminar sounds easier. Read sounds hard while look over sounds easy. Write sounds difficult while jot down sounds easy. Be aware of the psychological implications of the words and phrases you use.
16. Get pumped up!
Show your excitement for your product. If you aren't pumped up about it, why not? Enthusiasm sells.
17. Rewrite and test ruthlessly.
Test. Test. Test. A change of one word can increase response 250%. Sackheim tested his famous ad at least six times before he found the headline and format that worked. Most copy isn't written in one day. You have to write, rewrite, edit, rewrite, test, and test again. Keep asking yourself, Would I buy this product? and Have I said everything to make the sale?
18. State a believable deadline.
Most people won't take any immediate action unless there exists a sound reason to do so. Deadlines help, as long as your deadline sounds credible.
19. Instantaneous satisfaction!
Everything should be nearly instantaneous because we want instant gratification. Toll-free numbers and fax numbers help. If you're marketing on the Web, include a link or a "Buy Now" button that makes it easy for your readers to order.
20. Sincerity sells.
Don't offer fluff, mislead, or lie to your prospects. Tell them the truth.While rarely done, it actually helps sales to admit a weakness or a fault. Remember the ad, These neckties aren't very pretty, but they're a steal at a nickel each! Tell the truth in a fascinating way.
21. Copy your copy from the best.
Read excellent copy, write it out word-for-word in your own hand to get a feel for its rhythm, and memorize the following books:
-The Copywriter's Handbook (Holt, 2006) by Bob Bly
-The AMA Complete Guide to Small Business Advertising (NTC Business Books, 1995) by Joe Vitale -Tested Advertising Methods (Prentice-Hall, 1998) by John Caples
-CyberWriting: How to Promote your Product or Service Online (without being flamed) (AMACOM, 1996) by Joe Vitale
BONUS TIP: The Easiest Way to Write Anything
I use the method described in my booklet, Turbocharge Your Writing! I write in spurts. After you have decided what you want to accomplish with your writing, and you have completed your research, then write in 33-minute non-stop blasts. Then take a 10-minute breather, do some push-ups, get some air, dance, drink some coffee. Then write in another 33-minute spurt. This helps your left and right sides of your brain work in harmony.

It's not for Gentle hearts.
They switched the flight path back she said
and they turned the fountain down
Then she took me from my morning bed
to see the laughing clown
And where the come sigh flashes on
that's where the danger starts
And where have all the young girls gone?
It's not for Gentle hearts
The night is split by neon suns
a thousand turned on signs
No one but the pidgin runs
and the snow it falls in lines
The hard eyed ladies stand in pairs
the guys walk hand in hand
It's 100 dollars up the stairs
and Alice pays for wonderland
Black dots before their vacant eyes
the kids lean on the bar
and bearded wire faces rise
around the nova star
Calling voices follow you
from slowly moving cars
and sirens run the evening through
a tune played in 2 bars
Dawn light see's it still alive
coupled strangers part,
newly hopeful souls arrive,
but it's not for gentle hearts.
breath deeply in through the nose...
Hold it for a moment,... let it out slowly, through the mouth...
Repeat a few times ... Relax

Where Religion came from? Updated June 2017
I am not an expert on Religion, and this is no academic
lecture, I think what we can all agree on however is
that the truth, however stark it appears, is more important
than old traditions, in dire need of reform.
We are not in a simulation, least not one we can program
from outside,hint hint.
Thank you for all the feedback, we use it often.
Religion developed over many thousands of years. Before
it became established in groups, somewhere between 2
and 10 thousand years ago, it was just stories told.
Mom's, Dad's and village Elders would tell stories in the
evening as children gathered round near the village fire.
Chat and messenger pages were not available in those times
but the message would be communicated with tech they had.
In many parts of India, and other eastern countries fantastically
elaborate stories developed of multi headed gods and multi
headed monsters, indeed language scholars studying the
earliest Sanskrit texts have concluded that many of these
old texts where concocted bedtime stories handed down
form generation to generation.
Many of the preserved text
contain poetry like passages describing ritual practices, spells,
witchcraft magic and devils.
So we ask, how did these come about?
Children ask questions a lot, they are little knowledge vacuums.
One of the most frequent questions children ask is... what will
I get for Christmas? lol, no "What happens when you die?"
Parents and carers wanting them to be good, would often tell
them something like this, If you have been a good, always doing
what your told, you go to a beautiful, wonderful haven somewhere
up in the clouds. A place where you never have to work, you never
go hungry and never get sick, never feel pain.
Of course you would not know it was good, to you it would appear
at the time to be par for the course.
A place where you can play all day and have fun all the time and
lots of adventure. If however you have been a bad boy or girl you're
going to be sorry.
You will go to a terrifying place with no doors, no toys. Lots of
hideous snakes and frightening monsters, and burn there in pain
for eternity. Or words to that effect.
Of coarse there where many variations, many describing frightening
Now most of us suffer cognitive dissonance upon having long held beliefs
overturned and will attempt to dismiss the truth, examine how this feeling resta in the heart.
If one can find the few minutes each day to meditate by focusing one's
mind for a period of time on the now, and the breath deeply, in a quite spot
or with just the sounds of nature, as a method of relaxation. then seek truth
honestly in the cave of your heart, the inner light of intelligence may
begin to shine you may begin to comprehend how this story telling with
the questions and answers, (going on for thousands of years in dozens
of separated cultures,) resulted in Religious belief's evolving as children
grow up with these ideas embedded in the hearts and minds.
So... I have a place where one can learn from the teachings of the worlds
most enlightened professors of theology at... The repaired old secret.
Over the years I have collected a large folder of images from the web

I believe we all have a reason for being alive and it has to involve what we can do for others less fortunate and how well we treat others irrespective of what they believe.

All media is biased. How do we avoid it?
Good Journalism is always aware of the bias we attach to our opinion,
Islamic terrorist yelling this is for Allah and Allah
or God is Great, are right but not really religious extremist.
They are violent extremist with error in their
understanding of Allah, evil, salvation, and violence.
The great Allah will remain great by only imparting
knowledge on our hearts and minds.
They participate in killing and terror which means
one thing, they have misunderstood the message in
the old secret repaired. (link below)

have been misleading millions of us for about 15,000 years.

The Cost of inaction on emissions from coal etc.
+Short term impacts
+Long term Impacts
Are out in the open.
Now we know who the fools are.
According the the Trump press release, Trump has determined that the Paris emissions deal was bad for the US economy,
This is a good opportunity to point out that it may well be good for the US economy if they stay in as the jobs created by investments in electric cars etc is massive ,
Trump is also overlooking the fact that climate change denial is not part of the equation because... it would make the leader of the richest nation on earth a fruit loop.
Clearly pulling out of the emissions deal would be even worse for the US economy as the long term effects of rapid and almost unstoppable global warming of the planet make the cost of staying in the Paris climate deal minuscule in comparison.
We are concerned about Donald, He has a lot to contend with.
All the weight of being the President can take it's toll on your
health, mental and psychical.
We hope he thinks carefully as he considers the advice coming
from the worlds leading thinkers on the methane crisis in the Arctic.
He is now aware that the vast majorly of the worlds well educated and

decisions. Any mistake could mean disaster for more than just us.
