TheVoiceOfJoyce Drought overtakes the West & Southwest and no counting on the Monsoon to increase rainfall. Last year it was a no show. What happens to ski season, tourism? No snow, no water, warm weather? We need energy solutions yesterday and a chance to survive. Don’t hold your breath for Congress to act, Bipartisanship doesn’t go far enough to help “We the People “. We need Biden’s large Infrastructure plan, nothing less will make a dent in restoring our resources and our future!

TheVoiceOfJoyce YouTube Tuesday, EPI #84 Science https://youtu.be/EdgEnB9ss30

Description of EPI #84 Compassion & Science? TrumpsGOP are ready to protect their domain, even if it kills us and it is. They’re controlling how we vote and how we think. In many states they write history as they see it and don’t teach evolution. No wonder there’s fear of Vaccination Science and collaborative science … More TheVoiceOfJoyce YouTube Tuesday, EPI #84 Science https://youtu.be/EdgEnB9ss30

TheVoiceOfJoyce: Agenda(No spoilers)Watch YouTube Tuesday! EPI #84 People, Compassion & Science

I was going to write about Democracy and decided to speak about unequal Education in America and advocate for Science & technology instead, presenting new ideas and an understanding of why we’re being held back !   At least 8 States don’t teach Science and Technology. In Texas alone, Ars Technica has been tracking bills … More TheVoiceOfJoyce: Agenda(No spoilers)Watch YouTube Tuesday! EPI #84 People, Compassion & Science

TheVoiceOfJoyce Climate Goals by the G7 must be met. Yes, economies will lose Trillions & contract , when temperatures rise 2.5 degrees Celsius. However, people will die along with biodiversity & pollution will increase destroying our resources, too! That’s why I wonder, why are American Republicans going all in on Fossil Fuels, do they think they’ll be the lone survivors? Do they think their short term gains are worth dooming all our Resources to extinction? These are the People Joe Manchin supports? People who only cares about themselves& their wants ! The rest of us, what do we want. Speaking for myself, I want a better life for my children & grandchildren, I can’t support short term selfishness. “We the People “have an equal human right to survive and thrive!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Teens temporarily filling low paying jobs & that’s beneficial to them. America still has a problem creating work at decent pay for the 20+ age group. When will wages increase so they can form and support families?Sooner, rather than later ,wages must rise and new jobs created to absorb millions. Starvation is not a solution. Neither is a permanent non working class!

TheVoiceOfJoyce What do the jobs #’s really mean? Who is getting work and who isn’t. It’s clear young people in their 20’s & 30’s are not entering the job market. Information Technology is lagging and millions are still out of work. We need the Infrastructure and the American Families Act now to stimulate our economy and improve productivity and our way of life!

TheVoiceOfJoyce The Employee is back in “the drivers seat”! Asking for and getting better wages, benefits and at IBM , apprenticeship in house training. Perhaps we’ll get back to “our” valued employees! It’s a start.

TheVoiceOfJoyce Save the Monarch and take the first step toward saving ourselves. We need pollinators for fruit and vegetable pollination. If Pollutants & pesticides are killing the Monarch Butterfly, what are they doing to our bodies? Loss of trees and plants to fires create more heat. We’re pushing nature in the wrong direction. We’re next!

TheVoiceOfJoyce We need each other to think outside our spheres of knowledge. Working from home isolates us and makes us less creative because we’re lacking information and ideas that don’t come from only one group. That’s why Internet Scientists missed their opportunity to regulate Derivatives before the Financial Ctisis and lost another opportunity to install anti Hacking coding into critical infrastructure! Monolithic thinking hinders progress we need to continue to learn about how we interact with each other and how “ tribes” create innovation. People are more productive and innovative when working together. A lot of information is exchanged over the “ water cooler” or lunch out!

TheVoiceOfJoyce NASA plans to revisit Venus by the end of this decade to understand, Venus’ topography, atmosphere, water capabilities? All unknown. Space exploration sets man on a path to acquiring more knowledge about our own plant and the creation of the Universe and the essence of Life. I’m convinced this use of science and technology filters down and benefits mankind! Science & technology, too important not to teach!
