Announcing the 4rd annual Universe Day! Universe Day is an annual event December 31st at noon through January 1st at noon. This year the message of Universe Day 2013 focuses on:
1.) increasing awareness of the looming climate cliff, which is crossing the climate tipping points which will lead to irreversible or extinction-level climate destabilization (global warming.) The current escalating climate destabilization is the result of human-caused carbon pollution of our atmosphere by fossil fuels.
2.) dramatically reducing human-caused atmospheric carbon emissions on an emergency basis! To support the emergency reduction of human-caused carbon emissions the 4th annual Universe Day event declares this December 31 st to be Day One of the first Planetary State of Emergency on Escalating Climate Destabilization. (This emergency reduction of human-caused carbon emissions is Job One for of all Humanity. For both emergency and non emergency actions to be taken to mitigate escalating climate destabilization see the Job One for Humanity link farther down this page .)
3.) encouraging people to completely stop using the terms global warming and climate change in their conversations and switch to the more accurate and useful terms of climate destabilization, irreversible climate destabilization, extinction-level climate destabilization and the looming climate cliff. (The blog elsewhere on this web site explains in detail why this is a critical terminology upgrade in the climate stabilization battle.)
We invite you to gather this Universe Day, to both celebrate the beauty and wonder of the universe and to help enact evolutionary solutions for the climate cliff and the escalating catastrophic climate destabilization that we all face.
Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to self-organize their own Universe Day meet-ups to forward this year's climate cliff warning message. In true Millennial style, Universe Day is a no-ownership, no-egos, get-the-message-
Why does Universe Day land on noon December 31st to noon on January 1st? The New Year’s holiday is a time spent by many to reflect on the previous year, and examine how they want to live in the New Year about to begin. Celebration is also a way to energize intentions. Mark Twain said, “Never trust your mind when your imagination is out of focus.” Likewise, on Universe Day, how might one better shape their New Year’s resolutions when the single biggest possible challenge to humanity's collective future (the climate destabilization cliff) is also in focus?
What will you do as part of the universe on this 4th annual Universe Day 2013 1st?
The universe and the planet are calling for you to act…

The Secondary Message of Universe Day 2013...
is derived in part from the wisdom of Albert Einstein when he said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” One doesn’t have to be a scientist, activist, or political analyst to know that the challenges faced on a worldwide scale (the climate cliff and climate destabilization, war, other environmental degradation, the unstable global economy...) have serious consequences. But rather than merely feeling overwhelmed by these issues, the core impetus behind all Universe Day events is to expand one's perspective on how one thinks about them and shift our lives into better alignment with universe-scale, evolution-informed solutions --- new strategies for improvement based on universe-scaled science.
Universe Day is essentially a challenge to all of us to build a better world. Amazing leaps in technology have extended the vision of the naked eye well over a million times. With recent innovations in astronomy and evolutionary science, we’ve discovered more factual knowledge about the universe in the last 20 years than all of human history. With these leaps in our collective vision, we are touched and impacted in our consciousness by the rareness and miracle of what we have here on Earth. In other words: just as the universal informs the personal, so does it transform our planetary perspectives. Can we use these new extensions to our collective eyes, ears, hearts, and souls to examine what this universe means to us?
