A nation-state is composed of individuals. These individuals share common interests and they are like synchronous parts of a machine. A nation-state has its own personality, a complex one that is changing and defining every moment, just as a human being.


Today all nation-states on Earth are united. They have evolved themselves into a loose organism: United Nations Organization.


Until very recently these nation-states were not united at the global level. There was free for all, for at least past 5000 years, about which we know something and call historic period of mankind.


But human beings have not dwelt here on Earth only for the last 5000 years. The prehistoric period of human race, Homo sapiens, spans for much longer period in duration.


Mankind has existed for several tens of thousands of years and all along this long period she had MIND. Today she possesses an evolved mind that has the capability to explore things in the UNKNOWN zone to a considerable degree, though this zone is INFINITE.


Mind has explored into the PAST part of this unknown zone and now sketchy picture of emergence of life on Earth and history of mankind is available.


Life on Earth (in the form of First shellfish) has existed at least since 530 millions of years (the end of Precambrian period). The first modern humans have appeared on Earth at about 1.8 millions years ago (at the start of Quaternary period). March of life is really slow! But, lo! when one puts this period in relation to the vast span of time that our Earth took to make itself hospitable to life it is very fast!! And if we compare this period of origin of life and its evolution into human beings with the extremely vast span of time since OUR Big Bang (the last one in which we live, out of an endless cyclic occurrences of Big Bangs in universe) the emergence of life and evolution of human race occurred in fraction of a second.


The evolution of Homo Erectus - modern human beings - took place during the Ice Ages (about 290 millions years ago the first Ice Age gripped our Earth and thereafter Earth passed through four such Ages, last being about 10 thousands years ago) and human-like animals – Hominids – first made their debut about 4 millions years ago somewhere in grasslands of Africa.


Perhaps – Homo sapiens- human beings as we know them today made their appearance by branching out them from the rest of the herd within comparatively a very short period of time. Perhaps it was when one of their common herd or a group of them REALIZED, like a sudden flicker of thought, that he or they can DEVISE tools, perhaps during chiseling a stone piece, in leisure hours, that accidentally turned into a pointed dart, to defend them against rival contenders. It was an unintentional experiment that yielded discovery. It was a discovery, a small step forward in making their life easier and safer but it was a giant leap in evolutionary march.


It was the glimpse – light - of MIND. It must have happened as a sudden event on the scale of time (spanning for centuries, if not more) that grew steadily in its multifarious dimension and scope. Then, perhaps it spread like wild fire from one individual to another because it was very useful ability for human beings. This inner insight had a practical utility, and therefore it got a momentum after having the first kick start. What were the current problems then of the herd that this ABILITY of human beings did solve? They were overweighed with the problem of survival. They had to contend with rivals - animals, similar clans and natural forces - and to win and survive in the struggle. The discovery of chiseled dart helped them in their struggle and their ability to make experiment to make discovery helped them much more.


There is another aspect of this event that happened in the long past, and of which we have no way of having any record, that needs to be investigated. Is it possible that the event of sudden thought, a glimpse of thinking process of Mind, happened in the herd for the first time and immediately it was picked up and spread by a splinter group of the herd? No, it could not have been the first and solo event. It must have happened so many times in the past and involving so many individuals. It must have, then in the past, been attempted by those individuals who had that glimpse of thinking process to spread the idea to other members of the herd but must have failed to pick up and spread further. The idea to be accepted by large enough number of herd-members and spread spontaneously further required a certain level of collective consciousness of herd members. Initially, the idea must have been glimpsed by a series of individuals, attempted to be spread further but failed. But all these attempts contributed in heightening the level of collective consciousness and eventually made the herd, or a splinter group of the herd, to accept the idea, the thought process of Mind, and to make it a part of their daily life. Therefore, there must haven a series of pioneers of thought process in the past before that process was finally picked up by the members generally as their own part of consciousness. We do not have any evidence of such an event having taken place. There is no way to collect such evidence, for the event relates to subtle process of consciousness and leaves no material impact on the outside world. But this hypothesis gets support from the evidence of current events concerning animals’ thought process happening occasionally around the globe. There are occasional reports that an animal, monkey or chimpanzee, when faced with difficult puzzle, a situation, that concerned with its immediate benefit or loss SUDDENLY got the glimpse of thought-process and learnt to use Mind to solve that puzzle. A large number of experimental cases with animals are available today that suggest that there is an event of initiation of thought process in animals in given situations. Animals in their natural habitat also are reported to have SUDDENLY started behaving in a way that proves that there was initiation of thought process in the animal. But in all these cases, this individual event is not carried forward in a sustainable manner. And much more, this process is not spread further to other members of the animals group. It requires really very long period of time and sustained spurring conditions (puzzles in the struggle for survival) before the glimpse of thought process – or a series of such glimpses in different individuals – becomes acceptable to the common herd and part of their collective consciousness. Let us pick up our journey from that point where thought process of Hominids became part of their collective consciousness and proceed further.


We human beings have come very far from that point. We have emerged from caves to make houses on moon; we have started from a point where we chiseled stone-darts and reached a point where we make fusion bombs; we stepped on a journey at a point where we knew that fire is made by wooden friction and reached in that journey on a point where we know all fundamental forces of nature are ONE and they seem differently under different conditions. It was a long journey. But at the initial point of our journey we were living in a twilight zone where the Old ended and New started. At that time it was a critical point in life’s evolutionary march. It must have a very difficult period also. The Hominids herd divided into two: the old members went their way and ridiculed the New who frolicked with stones and claimed they were superior to the rest who did not know to do so. In fact, in practical terms, the majority was right for chiseling darts was not a great advantage over the old and proven strategy of superiority of number and of maneuvering in antagonistic clash. But the Old were proven wrong in long run. The Old did not realize the potency of experimenting and inventing and they are still left in jungles to fend for themselves for their mistake.


Today we are in a twilight zone again. Mind is offering a flicker of something higher than itself. This glimpse of Light - here and there, among scientists, saints, thinkers – is making our herd – Homo sapiens – restless. The air of expectancy is laden with heavy portents. Perhaps New Civilization is a cry of those who saw something new and of utility, an ability of Heart that is superior to Mind and is pregnant with more potential.


There are billions of individuals on our Earth. All are not alike in the state of their consciousness.


There are individuals who are not satisfied with the present state of things. Their MIND is in quest of the UNKNOWN. They are open to the MYSTERY OF UNIVERSE. They belong to New Civilization.


Then, there are others. Their HEART longs for the UNKNOWN. They are open to the MYSTERY OF UNIVERSE. They belong to New Civilization.


And, still there are others. They are fed up of the drudgery of repetitively meeting demands of their BODY and its Desires. Their body wails for the UNKNOWN. Their DESIRES are centered on KNOWING the UNKNOWN. Their MIND is in quest of the UNKNOWN. Their HEART longs to know the UNKNOWN. Such individuals are in extremely short supply on Earth - almost rare - but they are very much there on Earth. They are the pioneers of New Civilization. All these three kinds of people, put together, are in minority on our Earth and therefore New Civilization has not yet dawned on our planet. And the coming of New Civilization depends upon them. They are talking to one another today, as the members of splinter group of Homo Erectus must have had talked in the past to one another while trying to know more and to get victory over blind nature.


Also there are individuals who are satisfied in meeting the demands of their body and desires. Their mind is satisfied with what in known to them. Their heart is content with what it possesses. They are the pillars of old civilization. On Earth such individuals are in majority and therefore old civilization is thriving.


Is it possible that some of us, we human beings, are opened to the MYSTERY OF UNIVERSE for the first time? Is it possible that this REALIZATION of the existence of something that is mystery to Mind has occurred all of a sudden for the first time today among some of the members of mankind? No, it cannot be so. In the past of Homo sapiens, there has been a series of individuals who had a glimpse of the MYSTERY OF UNIVERSE and who tried to spread the same to other members of the herd of Homo sapiens. About 5000 years ago, Zurthustra of Zend-Avesta had a glimpse of this Mystery and tried to spread it. Some members of the herd listened to him, the thing was accepted by some and the level of collective consciousness was raised a bit. Then, about 2500 years ago, Lord Buddha had a glimpse of this Mystery and tried to spread it. It was accepted by some and the level of collective consciousness was heightened further. About 2005 years ago, Lord Jesus Christ had a glimpse of this Mystery and he tried to spread it to other members of the herd. Homo sapiens’ collective consciousness was further raised to new level. These are the well known cases of which mankind is generally aware. And, there are many more cases of individuals in the past of mankind who had the glimpse of this Mystery and tried to spread a word about it. And, then came a new creed - science - came on the scene whose avowed mission is to search TRUTH and whose avowed method of searching truth is to perform experiment and match its result with the hypothesis. This creed uncovered many secrets of nature and currently it is on its drive to uncover many more. It is bringing the collective consciousness of mankind to a point where lessons of Physics, Chemistry, Life Sciences, Psychology, Para-psychology and all other conceivable branches of positive sciences are converging on a single point with lessons of Lord Buddha, Lord Jesus Christ and all other great saints of the world. All these contributed in raising the level of collective consciousness of modern day mankind. Is the herd of Homo sapiens ready to accept this Mysterious glimpse as part of their collective consciousness? Has mankind reached a point where this glimpse could become an integral part of its consciousness? The time will tell.


Is it possible that people belonging to New Civilization get united? It is in the realm of future. Technologically, it is possible today. Internet is there to make it possible. But all such individuals are not wired. And many, for good reason, do not want to be connected.


What is the superiority of New Civilization over Old one? What are the current problems that our herd – herd of Homo sapiens – is facing? Our herd knows today that there is One and Single fundamental force operating in nature: the Unified Field. It also knows how to blow ourselves up in flames by realeasing the energy from the coils of matter where it is formetted by nature in unimagineably vast amount (E=mc squared). It also realizes that in the vast span of universal space we are a tiny speck, an island, blooming with life. It wants to know all that it does not know yet but knows that it must exist somehow. It also wants to reach out of our crammed Earth to other islands in our universe. There is a sense of urgency in the air. And also there is a sense of lurking danger around us. This fear is emanating from our own capability and distrust. What contribution can New Civilization make to solves these current problems?


With people belonging to New Civilization getting united as a single force and one voice, several benefits would accrue to mankind. Such people, once united, would have participation in taking decisions on Earth that are now being taken by nation-states. Then, there would be lesser number of wars, if not cessation of them. There would be then more peace on Earth than now. After all, New Civilization is to some degree higher than the old one on mankind’s evolutionary upward path.


Is it possible that individuals belonging to New Civilization get together as United Peoples Organization? Is it possible that they use New Civilization Network as their HQ?

19 Nov 2005 @ 07:21 by aaronb : consciousness is evolving
There is a growing and an evolving small group people that understand that global consciousness can only start to be elevated when they themselves become the change they seek in others. The observant outsiders will who are seekers,looking to elevate their quality of life, will recognize there is a narrow pathway that works for "them", asking themselves- "is this worth looking at for myself?" Major change is taking place but there is no advantage promoting a public declaration of this fact.For the many would be willing to obliterate the few rather than admit there ways are in error.FEAR is the major tool to keeping people from moving forward in their lives.Fear is feeling of a possible of a loss of something real or imagined FEAR is (F.E.A.R.)is really --False Evidence Appearing Real-- to the level that the individual is aware of this understanding will be the rate that individual will truly advance in their personal life
 



19 Nov 2005 @ 07:30 by judih : interesting, aaron
There was mention of providing ways to offer a door, an opening, a chance to be brave enough to try something else. There was mention of packaging this opportunity in a user-friendly form. Who would be willing to give up a current lifestyle, something comfortable, in exchange for a far simpler, planet friendly lifestyle? It would take a person of impulse, open-vision and flexibility. These qualities exist, I imagine. It's not always fear that holds people back. Sometimes it's merely inertia. People get used to life as it is.

Would a movement help people to overcome their set ways? Perhaps.

Yet, you are right. Change begins in the mind of each individual. Anything other than personal committment can fade away like a passing fashion.  



19 Nov 2005 @ 12:17 by shreepal : Inertia, change...
Our personality is not a harmonious whole. There are diverse elements there each living its life according to its rules. Body has its own habits and there is obstruction to every new step that disturbs its present composure. It is inertia. Mind is there, full of unfounded anxities of the unknown and unchartered zone of changed things. There is inertia and even wilful obstruction to the new. Heart, deep within, knows the truth and propells forward. But who cares for the Heart! Body is the vehicle and Mind is the driver.  


19 Nov 2005 @ 15:27 by vibrani : What it is
After a lot of thought and observation over the years, I see NCN as being primarily male-oriented, cerebral, and lacking heart energy. That goes for most of the active NCN members, whether they be male or female. There is no balance between the logical and intuitive minds, even though some think they're speaking about it. Therefore, people like myself are not fully understood, and it's hard to have a place here that feels comfortable. Balance of the mind and heart, more honesty, spirit with technology, is needed at NCN, for any "newness," or for any new civilization.

19 Nov 2005 @ 23:46 by vaxen : Beer...
we need more beer. That's how the women did it first of all. Yah, all those nasty old men wanted to do was go out and hunt! They sure didn't want to till the ground, though making babies was sort of fun, they didn't want to take care of the screaming things after birth, though...

So the women, being desirous of control, discovered a most amazing thing. One day miss lollapalloza p gremming was out tending to the daily task of grinding the corn when she discovered, in one of the stone grinding bowls that she used for grinding the corn, some corn that had been left had fermented in the rain water that had filled the bowl to brimming...

Being thristy and not wanting to walk the distance to the river she thought to herself: Well this looks like water, even though it smells a little funny, so let me see if it is pottable. Yum! Ooo that was good and after awhile of drinking the delicious stuff she began to dance...

The rest is history. The men came home a few months later with plenty of deer and squirrel and wild pig. They began to cook the meat and after everyone had eaten their fill the ladies declared that they had a surprise for the men that the men would really like. Lollapalooza brought out the beer.

So were men gradually cultivated to do the cultivating, plow the fields, plant the corn. They hunted less and less and tilled the land more and more then came animal husbandry and...

Oh NCN is OK. But NCN is really limited. There is only one top and though that doesn't represent a true pyramid scheme it doesn't represent communism either. NCN is what it is but it is not representative of anything really ''New'' happening on the face of dear old Hellja. Not that we couldn't turn things around by establishing a wiki and some other things and by getting some land and kibbutzing it or moshaving it or...

Well, NCN is what it is isn't it?

Gotcha!

20 Nov 2005 @ 00:33 by swanny : Diversity
A global mass will not work and is not working
according to those who study these things
The talk is that we are headed back from globalism
to good old nationalism because globalism or internationalism
doesn't work....
That is because such is not sustainable
The stigmergy and autopoiesis requires "diversity" in order
to sustain..... Sustainablity and diversity go hand in hand
it is a question of multi utility....
much akin to the nature of the net... if one path doesn't work
it the process finds another.... this is the beauty of
"graceful" systems..... and that is diversity in action
yet diversity should be contained somewhat as well....
there must be a kind of natural diversity along a natural order.
This is why I have proposed the "Glorder" because it divides the
planet along the "natural lines" of sunlight it recieves or the time
zones as it were.... this thus form 24 natural families of humanity
deliniating your family is simply a matter of recognizing which time
zone you were born in.... birth life being then a function of place, time
and yes heart.....

20 Nov 2005 @ 06:30 by vibrani : What the heck?
The women being desirous of control so they invented beer? Isn't that YOUR opinion, not fact? How sexist a comment, Vax, or was that just for shock value?  


20 Nov 2005 @ 11:04 by shreepal : Inferiority - male versus female.
Let's not lower down ourselves by expressing opinions that are nowhere near truth. There must be an issue and common ground to talk and proceed further. We have Mind and we must use that and not our passions. All our statements (whether opinions or claimed truths)are mere judgments. Our judgments are formed out of inter-actions of many factors in which we are placed by our circumstances.
My judgment is females are more brainy than man(there was a recent research report that showed that females are more alert to social surroundings than men plus they are equally capable to do mental work that men do). Females are more developed in Heart feelings than men. What a fuss about heart? Heart allow us to make sacrifices to our disadvantage, which Mind would not sanction. It is called Love. Not the love of a girl friend only but also the love of a mother. What is the advantage of a love-thing? Only the opportunity to one to exploit the other and the occassion of that another to be exploited by the earlier? No, it is not so. We are better than animals because we are given to make sacrifices for others. Animals do make sacrifices out of natural instincts and we human make sacrifices in calculative manner. It is very mundane explanation of the thing. There are other serious reasons why females are better than men. We leave it for sometime next. By the way I think that the debate male versus female has no relevance to the subject which is being commented upon here. This debate may perhaps come up later for further exchange of ideas at some another appropriate time. That is all for now from my side on the topic. Thanks.  



20 Nov 2005 @ 11:46 by swanny : Animals and Love
I was wonderin if that is what distinguishes
humans from animals is this capacity to love...
I wondered then do animals have the capacity to love
or can they be taught this capacity and I am not sure
It seems older humans somehow teach or pass on this
capacity to love to their young or try to....
some perhaps never learn it so in that sense are
simply like animals devoid of this love....
yet it distinguishes us but does not seperate us
for that is another component .... to love those
and that which does not have the capacity to love
us back.... to love without scorn or envy that which
can not even fathom love.....
that is why I took some offense at your admission that
it is the pleasure of a man/woman and not the pleasure of
a pig..... for it is the love of a man/woman and the passing
of time of a pig.... we do not scorn the pig because it has
not the capacity to love .... I suppose we "forgive" the pig...  



20 Nov 2005 @ 12:00 by swanny : Superiority of Women?
As to the issue of the superiority of women
I think they perhaps have a potential towards
it as the result of being endowed or "capcitated"
with the ability to bear of offspring...
this seems to make them more something...
able to function better in certain areas
although most people male or female function
far below their potential...
This was determined in studies by Abramham
Maslow that found that only 5% of people
were "actualized".  



20 Nov 2005 @ 12:05 by swanny : Capacitation
Actually in terms of impregnation of the womans
egg by the sperm it is a little known fact that it
is not the first and fastest sperm that impregnates the
egg but the one that is chosen and capacitated most
appropriately by the womens body and chemistry that
is afforded that opportunity.

but I digress
...

what was the question?  



20 Nov 2005 @ 17:24 by vibrani : How about
the fact that all fetuses are female at first? lol  


20 Nov 2005 @ 17:33 by shreepal : Regarding "pigs".
For me the debate of male versus female is over for the time being But regarding your taking offense to the use of word "pig" I wish to reply now, though belatedly. In the context the word was used then, I wish to point out, we were not dealing with "real pig in blood and flesh" and its supposed inferiority. Simply, a pun was sought to be played to highlight a point. We were then talking of the guards of Old Civilization. I wish to express my sincere feelings that pigs are conducting themselves in a nice manner at their evolutionary stage.  


20 Nov 2005 @ 21:55 by vaxen : Actually...


Vibrani it comes from Professor Phil Katz at the University of Pittsburgh. But, then, would that matter?

Shree, Schmootzie, your whole sub-ject involves, devolves, and revolves around yoni and her opposite, lingham. You are shpieling on and on about...differences. Your 'con troll' is not exactly missing so maybe go just a tad deeper if you want dia-logue...

For me the planet is one already and all the rest is nothing but words, words, words...we are ''composite'' beings. 0 and 1.

20 Nov 2005 @ 22:28 by vibrani : Thanks
now I know of another sexist, this one who is a professor, who can't prove such a theory. (FYI, I did catch the news item this past week on how women invented beer - it was on several news sites.) If you, or anyone else is interested, I will post one of the news items in the asylum chat room.  


21 Nov 2005 @ 03:47 by judih : Bring on the beer links!
I'd love to read the beer articles, N. The All religions about.com site that vaxen has offered is a lively information source.

It's all anthropology.  



21 Nov 2005 @ 04:35 by vaxen : vibrani...
always putting your foot in your mouth. check out proffessor katz works before making such a statement! or better yet don't. keep your narrow minded visciousness alive...it's fun to see you squirm.

"Erase the binary, and reality becomes an open mound of clay rather than prefabricated givens. Get it?"

obviously you don't but that's alright. your sexism is very obviously fun for you and provides you with a great source of energy. whatever it takes it takes.  



21 Nov 2005 @ 05:06 by vibrani : Where?
I can't find it on the link you posted - and I wanted to read it. I did a search and it came up with nothing related to this. Can you post a direct link instead of making up incorrect conclusions about me?

21 Nov 2005 @ 15:34 by swanny : A Global Round Table of G24
Well since we have deterioated into whatever
I propose a global round table at the UN made up of
some of the "current" elected officials of high enough standing
of each Nation appearing in each particular zone of the
24 time zones. These officials would then choose a
representative for their particular timezone with interpretors
and convene in a Global Round Table.
The purpose of this Round table to be creating a global vision, mission,
mandate and plan for the world and human governance. This G24 body then would
elect a chairman and excutive council or they would constitute
the excutive council of this G24 and delegate accordingly to elected officials of their particular time zone.

It would appear afterall that despite our wonderful technology that the world is
or has become to difficult or complex to manage and govern by just a hodgepodge
of elect or chosen few and that a global or international system does not seem
to work and a national system does not seem to work and perhaps a "timeocracy" may afford us some semblance or order or semi- order.  



21 Nov 2005 @ 19:42 by vaxen : the order...
is right there in your heart.
go there and roam about.

氣候變遷 傑佛遜兩百年前關注中央社 2011.12.04美國在科學上的成就可以追溯至兩百多年前開國元勳的影響 第三任總統湯瑪斯 傑佛遜不僅以科學態度改寫聖經 也早已注意到今日迫切的氣候變遷問題 美國 科學進步 雜誌 Science Progress 在專題中探討包括傑佛遜 Thomas Jefferson 在內等開國元勳對美國科學發展的影響 在宗教除魅上 科學進步指出 傑佛遜和 美國精神醫學之父 魯希 Benjamin Rush 在多番討論自然神論的書信往來後 改寫了福音 刪去其中最常被提及的超自然部分的內容 傑佛遜版的聖經也反映出其終生以科學探究精神來描繪自然世界的志向 此外 傑佛遜也深切體認到氣候變遷對美國經濟的重要性 身為業餘氣象學家的傑佛遜住在阿肯色州莫蒂塞羅 Monticello 時 每天早晨都會紀錄氣溫變化 他在 維州筆記中 Notes on the State ofVirginia 寫到 氣候變遷的發生是非常顯著的 降雪頻率越來越低 積雪也越來越淺 傑佛遜於是大量吸收各種可以解釋氣候變遷的理論素材 為了讓農耕更有效率 傑佛遜設計了鐵製的犁 而當時一般人都是使用木製的犁 這項革新凸顯傑佛遜急欲讓美國農業能夠永續發展 在科學醫藥上 傑佛遜當時曾感嘆美國的醫藥狀況相當糟 他在1801年和醫師華特豪斯 BenjaminWaterhouse 對毒性較弱的牛痘疫苗進行試驗 之後甚至在維吉尼亞州沙洛茲維爾 Charlottesville 發起運動 讓其家人 奴僕及鄰居都接種疫苗 在教育改革上 傑佛遜在1778年提出 知識大幅普及散播法案 Bill for the More GeneralDiffusion of Knowledge 這也是日後公立教育的先鋒 傑佛遜支持多元科目教育 鼓勵重視科學 特別是在大學教育的階段 這也導致他在日後創建維吉尼亞大學 這是他被認為在教育上最大的成就 瑞士阿爾卑斯山今冬尚無雪 滑雪場愁 中廣新聞 夏明珠 2011-12-04因為乾旱 瑞士的阿爾卑斯山今年到現在為止還不見白雪 滑雪場難以開門營業 今年秋天創了瑞士氣象史上最乾旱的記錄 冬季滑雪是瑞士觀光收入的主要來源 冬天不下雪 讓因為瑞朗升值已經苦不堪言的瑞士觀光業愁眉不展 今年以來 瑞朗對歐元 美元以及英鎊都升值不少 現在到瑞士滑雪 比到法國 義大利以及奧地利都貴得多 為了避免客人跑光 瑞士少數幾家大型滑雪場啟動人工造雪 其他財力比較拮据的業者 只好繼續苦等老天開恩 至於阿爾卑斯山的其他國家 儘管有匯率優勢 不下雪也是白搭 奧地利的一個渡假村請了十五個掃煙囪的工人祈雪 掃煙囪這個行業 在奧地利被認為可以帶來幸運 山地海嘯威脅不丹 陳穎柔 2011-12-04 工商時報 低度開發的 快樂國 不丹 竟也為全球工業化付出代價 喜馬拉雅山脈的冰河因地球暖化迅速融化 使得不丹發生山地海嘯的風險升高 With 24 of its 2,674 glacial lakes cosiednred unstable, Bhutan is preparing in the coming years for even deadlier glacial-lake-outburst floods, or "mountain tsunamis."位於喜馬拉雅山脈南麓的不丹王國 有著優美山景及豐沛水資源 但這些高山上的壯闊冰河 卻可能造成人民身家性命損失 問題就出在氣候變遷造成融冰 冰河前端每年往後退縮20至30公尺 速度快得嚇人 冰河24年後恐消失專家指出 以目前速度 推估2035年底前 喜馬拉雅山脈的冰河恐已消失殆盡 冰河前端後退使冰磧湖現形 由於湖的壩體並不穩固 因此上頭不斷融冰易引發潰堤 危及下方居民的安全 不丹在1994年就曾遭遇如此毀滅性的水災 潰堤造成的土石流讓鄰近村莊全數滅村 並奪走數十條人命 這就是西方科學家所稱的冰磧湖潰堤型洪水 GLOF 有時稱做 山地海嘯 不丹境內2,674座冰磧湖有24座被認定為不甚穩固 有鑑於今後可能發生更為致命的山地海嘯 該國已著手積極防範 成為世上首批將預防冰磧湖潰堤型洪水列為政府要務的國家之一 2005年 不丹政府自聯合國開發計畫署等來源取得環境保護經費 這筆錢有一部分編列做為將圖托麥措 Thorthormi 冰磧湖中的水排出及強固該湖壩體之用 不過 由於位居高海拔 這項工作難度甚高 也很危險 亦相當花錢 由於高山空氣稀薄 直升機在此用處不大 不丹政府轉而派出由約350名當地居民所組成的隊伍 徒步10天抵達海拔5千公尺處建立基地營 然後由學生志工 退役軍人以及穿著傳統服飾的村民運用極少樣工具 站在水深及膝的湖水中試圖開鑿出1條洩洪道 並建造石牆以強化壩體 每到冬季 他們的工作就不得不中斷 設於尼泊爾加德滿都的國際山區整合發展中心的工程師莫歐爾表示 經由人造衛星影像 有可能研判出何為最危險的冰河 卻不可能預測到何時或何地將發生大災難 冰河洪水的起因不一 也難以評估 要在極端氣候下 於高海拔蒐集地形 發生可能造成冰磧湖滿溢的雪崩之機率 冰磧湖天然壩體堅固程度 冰磧湖水量等諸多用以判定冰磧湖潰堤型洪水風險的資訊是非常危險的工作 水資源將日漸減少不丹相關部會評判出幾個高風險地帶 並明令禁建 以保全人民性命 政府官員現擬建立電子警報系統 在冰磧湖設置感應器追蹤水位變化 一旦水位驟升 將會發送簡訊給當地居民 配有手機 提醒他們要去避難 這樣 由上而來的海嘯 有立即發生危險之虞 但不丹人所面臨的威脅不僅止於此 倘若喜馬拉雅山脈的冰河通通不見 不丹的河川將頓失水源 終至乾涸 國之根基也為之動搖 這是因為水是不丹最寶貴的資源 農田有賴灌溉 所以水是該國數十萬農民賴以生存的要素 此外 水力發電是不丹重大經濟支柱 不丹河川水位若下降 將衝擊下游國家 唯恐影響到整個流域地帶 根據跨政府氣候變遷小組的估算 喜馬拉雅山脈的冰河融化所引發的水供應問題 影響將及於約7.5億人 儘管氣候變遷不丹幾無責任 但該國的表現儼如全球永續發展的領頭羊 不丹的森林覆蓋率高達82 是地球上極少數溫室氣體吸收量高於排放量的國家 不丹憲法明訂 其森林覆蓋率不得低於60 執行不丹國家環境政策的烏顏茨旺表示 冰河融化對我們構成威脅 但我們不能因此對工業化國家施壓 南韓電價再漲4.5%中央社 2011.12.04南韓知識經濟部2日表示 為預防今年冬季電力緊缺 將透過調整價格節約用電 決定自5日起全國電費平均上漲4.5% 使得今年至今電價共上漲了9.4%南韓媒體報導 加上今年8月上漲4.9% 今年有史以來電價首次在一年內上漲兩次 為有效控制電力需求 知識經濟部還擴大實施在冬季用電高峰時段 10至12點 17至20點 22至23點 徵收高額電費制度 並上調高峰時段電費 考量到市民負擔和物價 南韓知識經濟部決定凍結住宅 傳統市場 農業用電的電費 但大幅上調用電增幅大的大型工廠 高層建築使用的高壓電力收費標準 尤其是工業用高壓電力電費漲幅最大 達到6.6% 大企業的負擔將會加重 http://hwabwcbcxam.com [url=http://judlyh.com]judlyh[/url] [link=http://sfucipurv.com]sfucipurv[/link]

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this. http://griyasolo.com/author/corykable82/ Sbobet Asia http://hcl.sk/index.php/component/k2/itemlist/user/174987 Sbobet Casino http://hd-rulez.info/index.php?task=profile&id=6859857 Information
