I am the most ignorant and insecure person I know, because of this I move ahead towards my chosen endeavors unworried how the world sees me! I was born and raised in Newburgh, NY (city) and always envied those from the city (nyc) as they were I felt more cultured and in rhythm with current trends and city-life. However, when I turned 15 I felt fortunate to have been raised so close to an abundance of trees and forming a connection based on this experience with nature.

I had taken a serious interest in Global Climate Change starting around March 2006 after noticing degradation of the environment everywhere on the planet and in alignment with Global Warming news at the time.

I gravitate towards Climate Change Adaptation and Mobilization and seek to learn as much as I can about this.  I run ClimateChangeCommunity.com; however, it is in private mode until after the 2020 elections.  Right now I am focused on creating Quoted Images as this is my art hobby.

In terms of my religious beliefs, I as a Buddhist and am in total accord with the 13th century Buddhist Reformer Nichiren Daishonin from Japan. On July 16th, 1260, 758 years ago Nichiren Daishonin submitted his landmark treatise “On Establishing the Correct Teaching for the Peace of the Land” (excerpt from July 2018 Living Buddhism) where he outlines the fundamental causes of the natural disasters as well as other calamities and crisis, such as Global Climate Change.

My contention in hosting a climate change website is not about the causes due to my alignment with Nichiren Daishonin, yet more focused on adapting to the new realities that are now transforming before us. This mere point or fact, that we need to immediately start acclimating and creating fresh adaptation based ideas.

I realize I veer away from this point at times and focus on the causes yet it does help to see the nature (current life-force) of those who suffer from ‘the three poisons of greed, anger and foolishness’ (LB 7/2018). My main focus in my personal life is supporting my faith activities, family, strengthening my compassionate nature, accomplishing my human revolution, and learning about all facets of climate adaptation which I strongly sense is my mission.

No matter where you are on this planet, if you would like to attend one of these Buddhist meetings please send me a message and I can connect you to a meeting close to you or close to me so we can go together.

“How you look at a situation is very important, for how you think about a problem may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. When you get discouraged or depressed, try changing your attitude from negative to positive and see how life can change for you. Remember, your attitude toward a situation can help you to change it – you create the very atmosphere for defeat or victory.” - Franco Harris
