This conference is taking place in Cochabamba, Bolivia from the 19th to the 22nd April 2010 under the patronage of H.E. Evo Morales Ayma President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia.
“From the beginning of the 21st century we have lived the hottest years of the last 1,000 years. Global warming is generating abrupt changes in the weather, the retreat of glaciers and the decrease of the polar ice caps, increasing sea levels and the flooding of coastal areas, where approximately 60% of the world population live!”
His Excellency, Evo Morales Ayma, President of Bolivia.
“We have heard how the famous Larsen ice shelf collapsed and disappeared five years ago. A giant slab of ice 87-kilometers long – the size of some small countries – vanished in less than three weeks. What if this “Larsen effect” were to repeat itself on a vastly greater scale? At the Chilean research base in King George Island, scientists told me that the entire West Antarctic Ice Sheet is at risk. If it broke up, sea levels could rise by six meters. Think of the effect on the coastlines and cities: New York, Mumbai and Shanghai, not to mention small island nations. It may not happen for 100 years – or it could happen in 10. We simply do not know. But when it happens, it could occur quickly, almost overnight. It sounds like the script of a disaster movie, but this is science not science-fiction.”
His Excellency, Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Veli Albert Kallio and John Nissen are two of the scientists attending the conference in Cochabamba. They are both chairing two officially sanctioned conference events and will be at the Bolivian Embassy London press conference to explain their point of view and expand on their preferred solutions to global warming.
‘World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth’ ~ Event 65
Investigation into the World’s Indigenous Peoples request to the United Nations General Assembly by Thomas Banyacya of the Hopi nation. How this relates to the catastrophic consequences of the imminent massive destabilization of the Greenland ice mass. Veli Albert Kallio, FRGS, respected environmentalist and geophysical researcher, founder of Organisation ‘Frozen Isthmuses Protection Campaign of the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans,’ predicts that a massive destabilization of the Greenland ice mass is imminent. This collapse would cause sea levels to jump 5 to 7 meters. Many major cities, including London, New York, Mumbai and Shanghai, would be flooded.* Kallio will be revealing his discoveries and how they relate to the Indigenous Peoples oral history and their recollections of previous ice age melting. In particular relating to Thomas Banyacya of the Hopi nation and his request to the United Nations General Assembly on behalf of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
Veli Albert Kallio is organizing, an international FIPC scientific research expedition to the Melville Bay Area of Greenland to prove his theory of a possible ice sheet land containment failure.
‘World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth’ ~ Event 127 ‘Some Necessary steps to save the planet…….Geoengineering John Nissen researcher into Geoengineering – scientific solutions to global warming.
The warming effect of CO2 is amplified in the Polar Regions and is causing the Arctic to warm at least twice as fast as the global average. The maintenance of the polar ice caps is essential for keeping the whole planet from overheating. The Arctic sea ice is itself part of a thermostatic control mechanism that has operated for over two million years. If this mechanism brakes, and Arctic warming continues unabated, then inevitably the potent greenhouse gas, methane, will be released from permafrost in vast quantities and heat the whole planet catastrophically. Also much of the Greenland ice sheet will inevitably slide into the sea, causing a sea level rise of up to 6 metres.
There are three essential steps to rescue the situation:
1. emissions reduction more rapidly than currently committed;
2. active CO2 removal from the atmosphere;
3. cooling of the Arctic sufficient to save the Arctic sea ice.
For cooling the Arctic we propose a “solar radiation management” (SRM) technique, to mimic the cooling effect of volcanoes when they produce a reflecting aerosol haze in the stratosphere.
We present a challenge to the rich nations: to carry out these three essential steps to save the planet for the sake of future generations. The current Copenhagen course is suicidal. ‘ John Nissen.
