Global warming described by, among many others, a British scientist as the world's most urgent crisis growing in seriousness with each passing day. In April 1993 the Union of Concerned Scientists published a "Warning to Humanity" endorsed by more than 1670 scientists worldwide including 104 Nobel Laureates. In 1993 UCS warned that global environmental degradation threatens world resources essential to the survival of humanity. In the interval since that grim warning the crisis has been aggravated by war, continued large scale destruction of natural resources and public policy focused on maintaining and extending the power of governments and corporations serving the interests of power and wealth.

The issues cannot be explained or described in conventional language, the conventional rhetoric of political campaigning. The ideology of competition is obsolete. The human homeland can be secure and healthy only by cooperation. Cooperation must begin in the family, the neighborhood, township, village, city, county, state where it is relatively easy to establish replicable models scaled to be manageable wherever there are people.

At this moment we are making human sacrifices of whole populations to the gods of war and greed. We Americans continue to build weapons of mass destruction as we plan for yet more war.

Cooperation is not a political ideology; it does not belong to any faith, or party or belief system. It is the simplest, most obvious, time-tested and satisfying way for people to do chores required to maintain humanity's home, should we fail to change our destructive ways, we will not have another chance. The only time left to us is now.

We know violence breeds more violence. We know our resources are finite. We know the tragic consequences of imperial conquests. Our histories are littered by the tragedies following the chaotic failures of empires. As each imperial adventure fails the human inheritance is diminished. The American empire is already poverty stricken and faces bankruptcy physical, fiscal, political and moral. Our traditional emphasis on being "positive" tempts us to look the other way when we are frightened by the complexity and danger of the world we have so consistently abused and neglected.
