Free Goodie Release 1/20/09 - Inaugural Edition

Hello all,

In honor of the inauguration, we’re putting up all new articles this week as what we modestly call our “Advice to Obama Collection”. Start your reading with Jim Kunstler and his Clusterfuck Nation entry “Does Mr. O Know?” An open letter from the author to Obama on the basics of the coming oil peak, and what the ramifications will be for America.

Move next to “A Radical Plan for Funding the New Deal”, by Ellen Brown, who tells us about the upside of nationalizing banks and having the US government take back the right to control the US money supply, as specified in the Constitution. Who controls it now? Read up!

And if you’re wondering what happens if we don’t take Ms. Brown’s radical suggestion, take a taste of F. William Engdahl’s subtly-named article “Federal Reserve Sets Stage for Weimar-Style Inflation”. A good many economists think it’s absurd to worry about inflation when deflation is the looming catastrophe du jour, but it just may be that the unexpected is around the corner.

We’ve also brought back “Farmer In Chief”, the New York Times article by Michael Pollan, and another open letter to Obama. Why this one? Because, when you think about it, what’s more important than food? (Hint: ask people who don’t have enough.)

Finally, skate your way through “A Green Agenda for Obama's First 100 Days”, which is a sampling of suggestions from many different experts. But if you want the Overshoot-based viewpoint we favor here at the Frog, you’ll have to read on down to Paul and Anne Ehrlich, who are always on the mark. All 5 articles await your perusal at http://www.howtoboilafrog.com/#articles.

And when you’re done, make up your own mind about the number one priority for Barack, and cruise on over to www.change.gov to put in your suggestion, or raise up the profile of someone who’s there ahead of you.

Our Essential Book o’ the Week, Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle”, is tied in to the week’s FrogBlog Entry, “Planet Diesel” – check it out right below this entry or go click-lovers can go to http://www.howtoboilafrog.com/2009/01/planet-diesel.html. Remember that each book has links to AbeBooks and Alibris, both great online sources for used books, as well as links to Amazon for those who want to buy new. See for yourself at http://www.howtoboilafrog.com/#books!

As for our Essential Movie – it’s another short freebie – The Big Ask. We dare you not to have your heart touched by this one, and it’s got laughs too! It’s playing right now at http://www.howtoboilafrog.com/#movies.

And as soon as you’re done, go to this link (http://www.copenhagenclimatecouncil.com/get-involved.html) and get involved, because 2009 is the turning point, for better or worse. If the “men in suits” responsible for negotiating the Kyoto Protocol don’t come to an agreement this December on how to extend the process, then the carbon trading market in Europe will collapse and all their efforts will be for naught. This is why George W and Stephen Harper (with some help from the fallen John Howard in Australia) have been delaying the Kyoto process for 8 long years. Will you do nothing and let them succeed? Or will you click the link?

Our new Funny Web Short is called “Uncle Jay Wraps Up 2008” – loads of laughs, and you’ll end up feeling grateful that, whatever looms in 2009, at least we’re rid of 2008! Bring it on! Check it out at http://www.howtoboilafrog.com/#webshorts!

Lastly, we’ve got two Essential Links for the teen demographic this week, so you may have to forward this email on to the ones you know. For those in Canada, we’ve got the Youth Action Zone, and for those in the US, we’ve got The N network’s excellent “Guide To Green”. Click now at http://www.howtoboilafrog.com/#links!

And – as always – be a Friend o’ the Frog and forward this link to at least one person who doesn’t know about HTBAF yet. Our stealth campaign to invade the minds of the innocent depends on you!

Cheers,

Jon & all his friends at www.howtoboilafrog.com
