Ecology of Peace factual reality: 1. Earth is not flat; 2. Resources are finite; 3. When humans breed or consume above ecological carrying capacity limits, it results in resource conflict; 4. If individuals, families, tribes, races, religions, and/or nations want to reduce class, racial and/or religious local, national and international resource war conflict; they should cooperate to implement an Ecology of Peace international law social contract that restricts all the worlds citizens to breed and consume below ecological carrying capacity limits; to sustainably protect and conserve natural resources.

NSA officials confirm Ecological Overshoot as a source of 9/11 and post 9/11 mass surveillance?



NSA officials confirm Ecological Overshoot as a source of 9/11 and post 9/11 mass surveillance?

In the 27 page document, the phrase '9/11' is mentioned a total of fifteen [5+1=6]times. .. "NSA and its [Overconsuming corporate] partners must make sure we connect the dots so that the nation is never attacked [by its own ecological overshoot concerned military] again like it was on 9/11," .. "Post-9/11 we made several changes and added a number of capabilities to enable us to connect the dots" [that the earth is not flat ..]


A media publication’s accurate contextual environmental information is to a citizen’s healthy, constructive problem solving decision-making, no different what an organic farmer’s food is to a body’s cells energy conversion decision-making and problem solving. Similarly a media publication’s inaccurate information-food, including where the inaccuracy results from the intentional omission of important contextual environmental information, is as toxic and debilitating to an individual’s decision making and problem solving, or collectively to a citizenry’s decision-making and problem solving, as a farmer’s toxic pesticide or genetically modified biological foodstuffs can be.

NSA officials told to evoke 9/11 sympathies when justifying mass surveillance

31 Oct 2013 | Anthony Cuthbertson | IT Portal

A newly released internal document reveals details of how officials at the American National Security Agency (NSA) should cite 9/11 and the fear of future attacks when answering questions about the spying programme.

Al Jazeera America obtained the government document through a Freedom of Information Act request, which details 'soundbites that resonate' and suggested talking points when dealing with the media and with Congress following the spy scandal that originated from leaked NSA documents by former contractor Edward Snowden.

Included in the 'soundbites that resonate', is the suggested response: "I much prefer to be here today explaining these programs, than explaining another 9/11 event that we were not able to prevent."

In the 27 page document, the phrase '9/11' is mentioned a total of fifteen times. Statements include: "NSA and its partners must make sure we connect the dots so that the nation is never attacked again like it was on 9/11," as well as, "Post-9/11 we made several changes and added a number of capabilities to enable us to connect the dots," "If we had Section 215 in place prior to 9/11, we may have known that 9/11 hijacker Khalid Al Midhar was located in San Diego," and "In recent years, these programs together with other intelligence have protected the US and our allies from terrorist threats across the globe, to include helping to prevent over 50 potential terrorist events since 9/11."

This final claim that over 50 potential terrorist events have been thwarted by the NSA was called into question recently, when investigative news site ProPublica stated that there is no evidence that this figure is accurate.

The latest revelations concerning mass surveillance to have come from the NSA spy scandal concern Spain, Germany and France.

This week it was reported by Spanish newspaper El Mundo that the NSA secretly monitored 60 million phone calls in Spain in a single month, just a week after similar accusations of mass surveillance were reported in France.

Rights of Nature Questions for ACLU, Special Rapporteur Frank La Rue & and the Open Society Justice Initiative, at the 28 October 2013 Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) hearing on Freedom of Expression and Communications Surveillance by the United States. Participants: State of the United States, American Civil Liberties Union Foundation (ACLU)(PDF)



Questions for ACLU:

FACT: On 22 July 2013, a Rights of Nature Æquilibriæx Amicus Brief was submitted to the NSA surveillance matter of ACLU et al v Clapper et al (PDF); in the Southern District Court of New York, before Judge William H Pauly, US District Court, S. District of New York. The ACLU have so far failed to provide their consent to the court hearing and considering the Rights of Nature Æquilibriæx Amicus Brief arguments and evidence.

ACLU QUESTION 1: Why has the ACLU declined to consent to the court hearing and considering the Rights of Nature Æquilibriæx Amicus Brief arguments and evidence?



Questions for Open Society Justice Initiative:

FACT: On 07 July 2013, a Rights of Nature Æquilibriæx Amicus Brief was submited to USA v Snowden (PDF); before Magistrate Judge John F. Anderson, US District Court Eastern District of Virginia at Alexandria; United States Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Virginia. Edward Snowden has so far failed to acknowledge receipt or consent to the court hearing and considering the Rights of Nature Æquilibriæx Amicus Brief arguments and evidence.

OPEN JUSTICE SOCIETY QUESTION 1: Why has Edward Snowden failed to acknowledge receipt or consent to the public discussing or the court hearing and considering the Rights of Nature Æquilibriæx Amicus Brief arguments and evidence, with regard to NSA surveillance issues?



Questions for ACLU, Special Rapporteur Frank La Rue & Open Society for Justice Initiative:

FACT: The Opinion of Weeramantry J in the Case Concerning the Gabcikovo-Nagymaros Project (Hungary v Slovakia) (1998) (argues – (PDF) like ecology – that a healthy ecological environment, with due regard for maintaining consumption and procreation below carrying capacity limits is a sine qua non for all other constitutional rights.

(b) Environmental Protection as a Principle of' International Law

The protection of the environment is likewise a vital part of contemporary human rights doctrine, for it is a sine qua non for numerous human rights such as the right to health and the right to life itself. It is scarcely necessary to elaborate on this, as damage to the environment can impair and undermine all the human rights spoken of in the Universal Declaration and other human rights instruments.




FACT: Extensive Environment/Overshoot-Scarcity-Conflict documentation from military and intelligence agencies, united nations and governments, NGO’s and academic reports, etc, collectively document how legislative failure to restrict humanity’s procreation and consumption to cultural carrying capacity limits, and Legal Matrix Indulgences to Corporations: Socialized Corporate Externality Costs: Trillion Dollar Thefts from Global Natural Capital Commons , has resulted in humanity’s ecological overshoot of carrying capacity limits by between 700 to 400,000 percent; which include crossing urgent Planetary Boundary Tipping Points: (i) Loss of Biodiversity and Species Extinctions; (ii) Climate Change; (iii) Nitrogen Cycle; (iv) Ocean Acidification; (v) Changes in Land Use; (vi) Global Freshwater Use; (vii) State Shift in the Earth’s Biosphere; (viii) Peak Non-Renewable Natural Resources: Scarcity; with devastating current climate-resource-scarcity-conflict and refugees, and impending threat multiplier aggravation of crisis of ‘scarcity-conflict’ death spiral consequences; exponentially aggravating the task of individuals responsible for ‘national security’ issues.


ALL QUESTION 1: Does the ACLU/Special Rapporteur/Open Justice Society Foundation believe that citizens whose procreation and consumption violate carrying capacity limits – i.e. whose breeding and consumption directly contribute to ecological overshoot, resource scarcity and scarcity-conflict related national security issues – should be entitled to ‘privacy’ from surveillance. Put differently, should citizens and corporations who decline to fail to uphold their duties and responsibilities to nature’s rights; and whose behaviour impairs and undermines all natures rights, and all the human rights in the Universal Declaration of rights and other rights instruments; be entitled to the ‘right to privacy from national security related surveillance’?


FACT: Media Censorship of Environment-Scarcity-Conflict refers to a corporate media socialized externality cost. Like all corporations, media corporations work to maximize their profits, by maximizing revenues while minimizing costs, by externalizing – avoid paying – as many costs as possible, externalizing them to society. Journalists are aware of how population and consumption affect ecological overshoot, scarcity and scarcity induced conflict, but avoid including such context to socio-political problem stories, because it directly and indirectly conflicts with their population and consumption growth profit motives. Numerous studies such as Dr. Michael Maher’s study: How and Why Journalists Avoid Population - Environment Connection (PDF), document how the mainstream media’s conscious censorship of the population/consumption-overshoot-scarcity-conflict contextual connection in their reporting on environment, scarcity and conflict related events, is a significant cause of the public’s general ecological illiterate inability to make informed environmental decisions, ignorance of the ecological overshoot state of our planet, and its impending scarcity-conflict consequences. Dr. Maher did a random sample of 150 stories about urban sprawl, endangered species and water shortages, and found that only 1 in ten framed population growth as a source of the problem. Other studies conducted by Media Matters in the US show that (i) in recent 2013 wildfire coverage, only 6 percent of total wildfire items mentioned climate change; (ii) in Midwest flood coverage, only 3 percent of stories mentioned climate change; (iii) in 2012, the nightly news covered the royal family more than climate change; (iv) a recent study documenting the warmest year on record received cool media coverage, almost entirely censoring scientists from climate change discussion; (v) in 2012, the Kardashians got 40 times more news coverage than ocean acidification, which affects over 50% of US fishery revenues ; (vi) in 2012, TV media covered Joe Biden’s smile nearly twice as much as climate change, and Paul Ryan’s workout, three times more than record Arctic Sea Ice loss.

A media publication’s accurate contextual environmental information is to a citizen’s healthy, constructive problem solving decision-making, no different what an organic farmer’s food is to a body’s cells energy conversion decision-making and problem solving. Similarly a media publication’s inaccurate information-food, including where the inaccuracy results from the intentional omission of important contextual environmental information, is as toxic and debilitating to an individual’s decision making and problem solving, or collectively to a citizenry’s decision-making and problem solving, as a farmer’s toxic pesticide or genetically modified biological foodstuffs can be.

ALL QUESTION 2: Why have Civil Rights organisations around the world demanded that citizen’s be informed by farmers and retailers of the organic, or lack of organic quality of the food they purchase; yet civil rights organisations around the world fail to demand that citizens be informed by media publications, of the quality of organic information (i.e. such as media publications intentional omission of important contextual ecological information related to scarcity-conflict news events they report upon) they purchase?

Request for access to environment information in terms of Aarhus Convention under Article 4: Access to Environment Information (PDF).

I request access to environment information in terms of Aarhus Convention Article 4 from Mr. Greenwald and The Guardian (Mr. Rusbridger) as to the journalistic and editorial decision-making failure to report on Environment-Scarcity-Conflict (such as for example in As Europe erupts over US spying, NSA chief says government must stop media) and its consequences issues as a possible motive for intelligence agency surveillance, in their reporting on Mr. Snowden’s disclosure of the NSA Files; to be provided to me by the latest 28 November 2013.

The environment information relates to ‘editorial decision making’ to censor information about (a) Environment-Scarcity-Conflict contextual information in their reporting of the NSA’s national security motivations for its surveillance practices; (ii) the Environment-Scarcity-Conflict arguments submitted to the following NSA/Snowden related surveillance issue courts: (a) Amicus submission to USA v Snowden (PDF); before Magistrate Judge John F. Anderson, US District Court Eastern District of Virginia at Alexandria; United States Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Virginia; (b) Amicus submission to ACLU et al v Clapper et al (PDF); in the Southern District Court of New York, before Judge William H Pauly, US District Court, S. District of New York; (c) Amicus submission to First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles vs National Security Agency et al, 13-CV-03287 (PDF); in the Northern District Court of California; which the journalist and editors are aware of.

The environmental information requested fits the Convention definition of ‘environmental information’ under Article 2 (3) (b) as being an editorial policy ‘cost-benefit economic analysis decision making activity’, the censorship of which aggravates the threat multiplier Impact (I=PAT) Population (P) and Affluence/Consumption (A) causes of ecological overshoot and environmental degradation, which seriously affects (i) the state of elements of the environment, from air, atmosphere, water, soil and land pollution to loss of biological diversity and its components, and the interaction of these elements; (ii) the state of human health and safety as manifested by climate and resource scarcity (oil, water, NNR minerals), resource civil and national war refugees and deaths.



Environment-Scarcity-Conflict refers to extensive documentation from military and intelligence agencies, united nations and governments, NGO’s and academic reports, etc, collectively documenting how legislative failure to restrict humanity’s insistence on procreating and consuming above carrying capacity limits, and Socialized Corporate Externality Costs: Trillion Dollar Thefts from Global Natural Capital Commons, has resulted in our ecological overshoot of carrying capacity limits by between 700 to 400,000 percent; including crossing urgent Planetary Boundary Tipping Points: (i) Loss of Biodiversity and Species Extinctions; (ii) Climate Change; (iii) Nitrogen Cycle; (iv) Ocean Acidification; (v) Changes in Land Use; (vi) Global Freshwater Use; (vii) State Shift in the Earth’s Biosphere; (viii) Peak Non-Renewable Natural Resources Scarcity; with devastating current climate-resource-scarcity-conflict and refugees, and impending threat multiplier aggravation of crisis of ‘scarcity-conflict’ death spiral consequences.

Media Censorship of Environment-Scarcity-Conflict refers to a corporate media socialized externality cost. Like all corporations, media corporations work to maximize their profits, by maximizing revenues while minimizing costs, by externalizing – avoid paying – as many costs as possible, externalizing them to society. Journalists are aware of how population and consumption affect ecological overshoot, scarcity and scarcity induced conflict, but avoid including such context to socio-political problem stories, because it directly and indirectly conflicts with their population and consumption growth profit motives.
