an understanding love which not only tolerates progress in another but also encourages it; CO2 price floor

172.  But those who think chaotically are like those who wave their hands in the dark unaware of the object they hit.  Moreover thought accumulates in space.  One can conceive of a mighty choir of harmonious thoughts, but one can also imagine a flock of chattering black jackdaws.  Such congregations also fill space and disturb the higher worlds.  Dear thinkers, jackdaws, you are also responsible for the quality of your thoughts; thus even you create your future.        -Morya:  Hierarchy 1931

571.   It is rare that Hierarchy and cooperation are preserved without coercion.  Discipline should be regarded as an organized voluntary cooperation–among the methods of educating the heart the voluntary organization of cooperation has great significance.  But so long as compulsion is concealed somewhere there cannot be any conscious cooperation or the desired results.  And let us hasten to understand cooperation; it is impossible to hope for flowering and victory where there is disunity.  Let us accept this truth as a command.        -Morya:  Heart 1932

Mass participation in political and cultural affairs was the basis of the glory of the Greek city-states.  Their downfall was caused by disunity and rivalry.  If the latter can be eliminated and the former reinstated the world will see the dawn of a golden age unparalleled in recorded history.  This is universal conscience in action….

Most barriers between the individual and right understanding have their origin in the imitation of another’s thoughts and actions. …The universal key sought after by all religions is to be found in an understanding love which not only tolerates progress in another but also encourages it….

No promise can be kept unless faith in the promise be active in the lives of those who profess to believe in it….I do not seek to influence human will but pray the favor of Almighty God to intercede His divine will and supreme understanding upon the minds and hearts of all.  With the strands of a tolerant unity a permanent and universal oneness can be woven.        -El Morya:  Encyclical on World Goodwill, 4-9-1963 via Messenger Mark Prophet   ElMorya22.jpgby H.

1-26-17   Germany can meet its climate goals for the energy sector if it introduces a CO2-price floor of between €50 and €75 per ton, write Fabian Huneke, Carlos Perez Linkenheil and Simon Göß from the Berlin-based independent energy market specialist Energy Brainpool.  However, if neighbouring countries don’t take similar measures, more than half of the reduced CO2- emissions will be shifted abroad, note the authors.  As long as power markets are interconnected, European measures make more sense than national ones.   http://energypost.eu/co2-price-floor-can-german-climate-goals/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=linkedin&utm_source=socialnetwork

11-26-16  This program of forcing renewable energy into the mix by regulations on consumers, tax hand-outs and soft loans to green power is central to the 26-28 per cent reduction in Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions that was pledged at the Paris Climate Agreement in December of last year.  That proposal was one developed under Prime Minister Abbott and is similar to the schemes accepted by other developed countries (developing countries accounting for a share of global emissions at over 60 per cent and growing have no constraints).The government apparently did not recognise the irony in its ratifying the Paris agreement the day after Donald Trump was declared President-elect.   Mr Trump has vowed to dismantle the agreement (which avoided being called a “Treaty” because neither Obama nor his presumed successor, Clinton, could have had this ratified by Congress).     http://catallaxyfiles.com/2016/11/28/trump-changes-the-global-carbon-policy-but-liberals-just-snipe-at-alp/

6-15-16    Pricing carbon has been a cornerstone of the climate solution since at least 2003, when Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman, the now-retired independent from Connecticut, introduced a bill to cap national emissions.

The policy has been beaten legislatively at least three times.  But many climate advocates and economists say it’s still the key to cutting enough emissions to avoid damaging warming around the globe.  It could be needed in 10 years or earlier, many say.      http://www.eenews.net/stories/1060038843
