Here at Heart Plan Vision we support getting to the radical core heart of issues.
There is deep controversy and divide on the issue of Climate Change, Climate Warming, Climate Chaos, Climate Crisis. And the fact remains we are experiencing greater intensity in climate and it is causing great strain and trauma for many.
It is our intention and hope for greater openness in exploring the big picture on this topic,
including honestly looking at economic factors that may lend towards some beliefs,
and also what is going on with galactic warming, not just isolated to Earth.
Exploring these wide range of divides and issues, is it realistic to believe man-made climate change issues could be reversed in time for life on planet earth to be sustained as we know it now?
This is the bigger picture question we shall aim to explore here.
Let’s Jump right into addressing how difficult it is to have conversations about Climate Issues

Here are links to individual pages under this topic of ‘Climate Chaos’ where we go into more detail.
Galactic Factors Impacting Climate
Global Warming a Hoax?
Grand Solar Minimum
Native Elders Warnings
Natural Climate Solutions
Forests as Natural Climate Solution
What is Geoengineering
Youth Activism on Climate
There are many topics to explore to access a big picture overview.
Here is a beginning list of a range of climate issues to be considered as we explore climate chaos.
Engineered weather hurricanes, etc
Warming of the oceans
Reckless destruction of the Amazon rainforests, our planetary “lungs”
Slowdown of Atlantic Ocean Current – a natural cycle or man-made?
Increase in atmospheric CO2 (from fossil fuel and deforestation)
Claim that climate change purpose is to exercise political influence, to try to introduce world government, and to control people
National Geographic fact-checked conspiracy theory regarding the persistent belief in a global warming hoax they note that the Earth is continuing to warm and the rate of warming is increasing as documented in numerous scientific studies. The rise in global temperature and its rate of increase coincides with the rise of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere due to human activity. Moreover, global warming is causing Arctic sea ice to thaw at historic rates, many species of plants are blooming earlier than expected, and the migration routes of many birds, fish, mammals, and insects are changing.
(Note: we aim in the following pages on various related topics on Climate Chaos – to show it is a rich and complex topic, with no easy answers)
There are a good many books out on the topic of Climate –
so only a few will be highlighted here.
The Politics of Policy and Interest Groups are Quite Influential
and this book published in 2020 comes well recommended.
Short Circuiting Policy: Interest Groups and the Battle Over Clean Energyand Climate Policy in the American States by Leah Cardamore Stokes
Partial summary on Amazon.com “Examining clean energy laws in Texas, Kansas, Arizona, and Ohio over a thirty-year time frame, Stokes argues that organized combat between advocate and opponent interest groups is central to explaining why states are not on track to address the climate crisis. She tells the political history of our energy institutions, explaining how fossil fuel companies and electric utilities have promoted climate denial and delay. Stokes further explains the limits of policy feedback theory, showing the ways that interest groups drive retrenchment through lobbying, public opinion, political parties and the courts. More than a history of renewable energy policy in modern America, Short Circuiting Policy offers a bold new argument about how the policy process works, and why seeming victories can turn into losses when the opposition has enough resources to roll back laws.”
“This is a book of the very first importance, a stunningly good piece of investigation that lays bare the answer to what may be the world’s most important mystery: why are we moving so slowly to address the greatest crisis the planet has ever faced? It should be read-and memorized-by everyone who deals with energy policy in any way, shape, or form.” — Bill McKibben, Middlebury College
“With Washington gridlocked or worse, advocates for action on climate change have looked to the states for leadership. In this deeply researched and sobering analysis, Leah Stokes shows why these hopes must be combined with vigilance and tenacity. Even where states have managed to introduce innovative reforms, Stokes shows, deeply entrenched and resourceful fossil fuel interests can often regain the upper hand.” — Paul Pierson, University of California-Berkeley
“With US national politics deadlocked under right-wing dominance, crucial battles over clean energy are playing out in the states. In this brilliant new book, Leah Stokes spells out exactly how and why entrenched interests can take advantage of weak, ambiguous laws to achieve costly delays and hobble infant clean energy sources. All citizens fighting for effective responses to global warming should heed the lessons in this book-and scholars studying policy battles in many other realms have much to learn from it as well.” — Theda R. Skopol, Harvard University and Scholars Strategy Network
