This video was created with brief excepts from Al Gore's Nobel Prize and Oscar winning film, "An Inconvenient Truth"; a few brief CNN News clips, text, information, and photos from; video of interviews and scenes in our original film, "Them"; and donated photos.

The purpose is to help bring attention to THE TRUTH, and the need for ACTION on Global Warming; other environmental problems; volunteering; and self preparedness, and helping others in disaster situations.

This amateur short video, “White House - Disaster and Environment,” is NOW available here to watch. The original content was produced by me, Albert V. Sheppard, and my two teammates, Jennifer L. Nord, and Brendon Nystedt while at West Valley College in Saratogo, California as student filmakers. I re-mixed and edited the film to produce the current video which contains clips from other videos for my Humanities 432 class project at DeVry University in Fremont. In the film I give credits to the clips that I borrowed from other videos. Some permissions are still pending. As you will notice, the film and this website is not for any commercial purpose nor profit. I am are not fund raising. I have no ulterior motive or political agenda for this website. ...and I don't send out junk mail. It is my intent to bring attention and action to our common world problems in my small way and I hope you will do the same.

To see the video in FULL movie fashion on your TV or Computer get a FREE copy (of my video) email me, Al Sheppard with your request. I repeat... I don't send junk mail and I don't add you to any list.

This slide show is an excerpt from the video above. It was created with cuts/pastes/edits from pages and also includes slides created to drive home the need for preparedness and global disaster and enviromental action. The slide show began as a project on “Agencies” for my Humanities 432 class. The header of the White House site is used for effect during the Power Point presentation.

Political Interference with Government Climate Change Science

Testimony of James E. Hansen to Committee on Oversight and Government Reform United States House of Representatives 19 March 2007

White House edits CDC climate testimony

WASHINGTON - The White House severely edited congressional testimony given Tuesday by the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the impact of climate change on health, removing specific scientific references to potential health risks, according to two sources familiar with the documents. Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the Atlanta-based CDC, the government's premier disease monitoring agency, told a Senate hearing that climate change "is anticipated to have a broad range of impacts on the health of Americans." But her prepared testimony was devoted almost entirely to the CDC's preparation, with few details on what effects climate change could have on the spread of disease. Only during questioning did she describe some specific diseases that likely would be affected, again without elaboration.

Greenhouse gases and Global Warming

Greenhouse gases are components of the atmosphere that contribute to the greenhouse effect. Some greenhouse gases occur naturally in the atmosphere, while others result from human activities such as burning of fossil fuels such as coal. Greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. Measurements from Antarctic ice cores show that just before industrial emissions started, atmospheric CO2 levels were about 280 parts per million by volume (ppm; the units �L/L are occasionally used and are identical to parts per million by volume). From the same ice cores it appears that CO2 concentrations stayed between 260 and 280 ppm during the preceding 10,000 years. Studies using evidence from stomata of fossilized leaves suggest greater variability, with CO2 levels above 300 ppm during the period 7,000-10,000 years ago, though others have argued that these findings more likely reflect calibration/contamination problems rather than actual CO2 variability. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the concentrations of many of the greenhouse gases have increased. The concentration of CO2 has increased by about 100 ppm (i.e., from 280 ppm to 380 ppm). The first 50 ppm increase took place in about 200 years, from the start of the Industrial Revolution to around 1973; the next 50 ppm increase took place in about 33 years, from 1973 to 2006. Many observations are available on line in a variety of Atmospheric Chemistry Observational Databases. The greenhouse gases with the largest radiative forcing are:-- Wikipedia

U.S. rebuffs Germany on greenhouse gas cuts

WASHINGTON: The United States has rejected Germany's proposal for deep long-term cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, setting the stage for a battle that will pit President George W. Bush against his European allies at next month's meeting of the world's richest countries. In unusually harsh language, Bush administration negotiators took issue with the German draft of the communiqu� for the meeting of the Group of 8 industrialized nations, complaining that the proposal "crosses multiple red lines in terms of what we simply cannot agree to." "We have tried to tread lightly, but there is only so far we can go given our fundamental opposition to the German position," the American response said. Germany, backed by Britain and now Japan, has proposed cutting global greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2050. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, who will be the host of the meeting in the Baltic Sea resort of Heiligendamm next month, has been pushing hard to get the Group of 8 to take significant action on climate change. -- International Hearald Tribune

Contents My approach recognizes that sustained economic growth is the solution, not the problem � because a nation that grows its economy is a nation that can afford investments in efficiency, new technologies, and a cleaner environment. James L. Connaughton was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate on June 14 and appointed by President Bush on June 18, 2001 to serve as the Chairman of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ). In this capacity, he serves as the senior environmental, energy and natural resources advisor to the President as well as Director of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, which oversees the development of environmental policy, coordinates interagency implementation of environmental programs, and mediates key policy disagreements among Federal agencies, state, tribal and local governments and private citizens. The National Response Framework -- successor to the National Response Plan, The National Response Plan establishes a comprehensive all-hazards approach To manages domestic incidents Forms the basis of how the federal government coordinates during incidents The National Response Plan establishes protocols to help Save lives and protect the health and safety: public, responders, workers; Ensure security of the homeland Prevent an imminent incident from occurring Protect and restore critical infrastructure and key resources; Conduct law enforcement investigations Protect property and mitigate damages and impacts to individuals, communities, the environment Facilitate recovery of individuals, families, businesses, governments, and the environment.

Recommended Items to Include in a Basic Emergency Supply Kit: Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both Flashlight and extra batteries First aid kit Whistle to signal for help Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food) Local maps Prepare Yourself and Help Others Additional Items to Consider Adding to an Emergency Supply Kit: Prescription medications and glasses Infant formula and diapers Pet food and extra water for your pet Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records in a waterproof, portable container Cash or traveler's checks and change Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or information from Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person. Consider additional bedding if you live in a cold-weather climate. Complete change of clothing including a long sleeved shirt, long pants and sturdy shoes. Consider additional clothing if you live in a cold-weather climate. Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper � When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach, bleach can be used as a disinfectant. Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water. Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners. Fire Extinguisher Matches in a waterproof container Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items Mess kits, paper cups, plates and plastic utensils, paper towels Paper and pencil Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children Make A Plan Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan in advance: how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations.

DARK TRANSITION -- NIGHT CUT TO TOTAL BLACKNESS The MUSIC continues as... TITLE SHOT ON SCREEN -- LARGE BUT UN-REMARKABLE - "THEM" A Disturbing collage of sound tracks of emergency sirens, screams, explosions, rumblings, the crack of lightning, heavy rain, and loud disturbing music. A COLLAGE OF THE WORST NATURAL DISASTERS IN THE LAST 100 YEARS. THE SHOTS CUT BACK AND FORTH FROM DISTANT LONG SHOTS TO MEDIUM AND CLOSE SHOTS OF THE DEVASTATION TO PROPERTY THEN TO LONG SHOTS THAT ZOOM TO MEDIUM, CLOSE, AND EXTREME CLOSE UPS OF EMOTIONAL VICTIMS OF ALL RACES, AGES, AND CULTURES IN TERRIBLE DISTRESS. INT. WAITING ROOM -- DAY JANICE and other people are watching a disaster - Hurricane Katrina and Rita - coverage on TV and reading about it in newspapers and listening to THE NARRATOR NARRATOR (Excitedly)) This is one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the world. Thousands of people, men, women, children, families and grandparents are fleeing for their lives. Thousands upon thousands are feared already dead. Several towns have been completely flattened. Entire populations have vanished. Thousands of children and families are crushed below collapsed buildings. These are not exaggerated numbers. It's hard to for a person's mind to grasp the magnitude and know how to feel about so much death and devastation. We feel so helpless to do anything. Thousand upon thousands of people are waiting to be rescued. Most are without food, or shelter and are dyeing from the heat, cold, and dehydration. Many are in desperate need of medical assistance and medication. Federal, state, and local authorities are overwhelmed by the magnitude of the destruction and number of victims. The power station outages are widespread and have caused blackouts in widespread towns and even in adjoining states that were outside the disaster area. The roads are impassable. Crime, looting, fires have flared up everywhere. Pets and wild animals are scarred, traumatized, and in the streets. Hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes, shelters, public, government, and emergency facilities have been destroyed or so badly damaged that they are out of service. Even the very old, the critically ill patients, and those in emergency surgery can not be reached in time. Most of them will die before help arrives. ACT EXT. DISASTER AREA -- THE HELPERS -- DAY HELPERS IN ACTION. PRIVATE GOVERNMENT, NON-PROFIT, AND CORPORATE PEOPLE AND GROUPS IN ACTION HELPING WITH SEARCH AND RESCUE, SEARCH AND RESCUE DOG TEAMS, MEDICAL, FOOD DISTRIBUTION, FOOD KITCHENS, SETTING UP TENTS, DISTRIBUTING BLANKETS, HELICOPTERING VICTIMS, BOATING AND CARRYING VICTIMS, COMFORTING PEOPLE, TAKING CARE OF CHILDREN. NARRATOR Funds of money are being pledged to help the victims and to rebuild the properties and the people live's. As usual, there are people already here helping. Large numbers of people and charitable aid groups have already deployed here to help. These are ordinary people working alongside fire fighters, police, military, and government workers. Who are these HELPERS? Where do they come from? Why do they interrupt their lives or plans to help others? It seems that it is always this same small segment of the world population that cares and does the lions share to help. TV COVERAGE OF APPEALS FOR HELP INT. HER LIVING ROOM AT HOME - EVENING JANICE Janice reads the newspaper about the disaster and looks over the top of the paper to the TV to see the disaster coverage and appeals for help. LATER INT. JANICE'S BEDROOM - EVENING Janice gets ready for bed, yawns excessively as she flips channel, then looks and the TV coverage for one final glance, then says, "Enough", and snaps the TV off. (Time passes as light fades to dark and Janice falls asleep) THE CAMERA OVERLAYS JANICE SLEEPING COMFORTABLY WITH SCENES OF VICTIMS HOMELESS AND MISERABLE. FADE TO BLACK VOICE 1 (Excited and Urgent) Help them! JANICE Still asleep -No reply - total darkness VOICE 1 (Louder this time) Help them!!!! JANICE Janice springs up into a sitting position in bed as lights come on mysteriously. (Shocked and scared) VOICE 1 (Softly and with empathy) Help them! JANICE (Defiantly) What?!! VOICE 1 (strongly) Help them!!!! JANICE Scared again crouching up against the head of the bed and drawing up the covers to her neck. Then reaching for the phone. Help who? Who are you? What's going on? How did get in here. I'm calling the police. The phone is dead. She taps the phone plunger trying to get a dial tone but gets none. JANICE What do you want. I have no money! VOICE 1 (Long drawn stretched out plea) Help Them! SUDDENLY ALL THREE CHARACTERS APPEAR IN THE FRAME. THE SIDE PROFILES OF THE VOICES SNAP IN TO WITHIN INCHES OF JANICE'S RIGHT AND LEFT EAR, RESPECTIVELY, AND WHISPER AUDIBLY AND IN RAPID FIRE SUCCESSION - EACH VOICE TRYING TO OUT-TALK THE OTHER SIMULTANEOUSLY - A TIGHT SHOT OF ALL THREE FACES CAMERA ZOOMS SLOWLY TO EXTREME CLOSE UP OF JANICE'S EYES. SHE IS TERRIFIED BY THESE COMPETING VOICES BUT UNABLE TO MOVE. WITHOUT MOVING HER HEAD HER EYES SWITCH FROM ONE VOICE TO THE OTHER AS A CONVINCING ARGUMENT IS HEARD. HER FACE REMAINS STRAIGHT AHEAD. ONLY HER EYES MOVE AND EXPRESS HER TERROR AND CONFUSION. HER FACE WINCES, SQUIRMS, AND CONTORTS TRYING TO IGNORE OR CLOSE OUT THE VOICES, BUT SHE CAN NOT MOVER HER HEAD, HER HANDS, OR HER BODY. THE CAMERA SNAPS TO DIFFERENT P.O.V.'S AS EACH VOICE SPEAKS. SHOT JANICE'S P.O.V., VOICE 1'S P.O.V., VOICE 2'S P.O.V. AUDIENCE'S P.O.V. MULTIPLE OTHER SHOTS TO CREATE THE EFFECT OF ACTION FOR THIS OTHERWISE STATIC SCENE SEQUENCE. VOICE 2 (simultaneously with Voice 1 trying to talk-over voice 1) Don't help them! You have your own problems. You don't know them. What are they to you? That's why you have to think about yourself. Save yourself. What of it we'll deal with that when the time comes. You are struggling right now with finances. Your heart is in the right place. You want to help out but you can't right now. You can't afford a dime to give away to strangers even if you wanted to help. There are plenty of others to help them. Don't worry about it. It's not your fault that this happened. Don't let anyone put a guilt trip on you. Go on with your life. You will be able to do more when you accomplish your goals first. Those people had an option. They didn't have to be there. That was their choice. They knew this could happen! Most are so stupid they are going to do the same thing again if they survive. Let the police, fire-fighters, Coast Guard and military, and government handle it. That's what our taxes are for ...and charities they are just going to waste the money in administrative costs. You DON'T have time! You can't take any time off! It will mess up your own life. You have responsibilities to yourself and your family. There is nothing that you can do. You are just ONE person. There is TOO MUCH DEVASTATION for YOU to make a DIFFERENCE. Don't feel bad there are millions of others just like you who won't help either. All of you have VERY LEGITIMATE REASONS for not helping right now. Why SHOULD you help? None of them ever helped you. Your tired. You've had a hard day. All this news has worn you out. It's better to turn it off and go to sleep. It will all be over soon. VOICE 1 You MUST help them. There IS no one else. They are part of the human race. We MUST help each other. We live on a violent planet. The chances are that one day you too will need help. Don't lie to yourself. There's never going to be a perfect time or perfect situation for you to help. The time is now. These people are suffering now! How are you going to help them later if they are dead? The government can not do everything alone. We, the people must pull together. Every ONE makes a BIG difference. You must get involved in some way small or large. We live on a very violent planet. Disaster can strike anywhere at any time. We can never be totally safe. It's not all about money. Donations are needed. Major charities do a good job keeping their expenses down so that the money helps the people who need it. Major charities have save countless millions of lives and helped countless millions of people. How many have you saved? How many have you helped? They can do more to help and purchase more with each dollar than you ever. They have the personnel and are organized to take action and to distribute help. There are thousands of other ways that you can help people. You are part of the human family. You have responsibilities that are outside your small circle in this world. That's the point. There are millions of people who like you will not help because others like you aren't helping either. What if you were the only one not helping? It has the same morality and the judgment upon you life and humanity shall be the same. Are you not outraged? All of us together CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Even ONE MAKES A DIFFERENCE! Your INACTION will be just as much a cause of these people's suffering and death as the natural disaster itself. Do you not feel empathy for people. It is the essence of a soul? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you do not help, do not expect to receive help. Why are you here? Why are you alive? How can you sleep in your nice comfortable bed without helping. JANICE Janice's eyes transition from fear, shock, bewilderment, confusion, and finally to intense sadness and empathy as her eyes tear as she sees... SCENES FADE IN AND OVERLAY ONTO JANICE'S FACE OF TRAGIC DISASTER FOOTAGE THAT SHE IS RECALLING FROM THE NEW COVERAGE. THEN FOCUS BACK IN TO HER TEARING EYES. FADE INTO FIST INTERVIEW. THE BACKGROUND MUSIC IS DRAMATICALLY SAD BUT UPBEAT TONE TO SET THE TONE FOR THE THIRD AND FINAL ACT 3 - THE INTERVIEWS. INT. INTERVIEW - DAY INTERVIEWER (Never on screen. The interviewed subjects repeat the question that is asked, but the Interviewer is never seen and never heard. Give each interview subject this orientation and these questions. Second, do a filmed practice run. Third, tell the interview subject what was the most relevant information that he or she gave in the practice interview and ask if he or she would be sure to include it again in the final shooting. Fourth, shoot the interview a final time. Keep both the practice and the final interview for editing.) The purpose of this interview is to discover and answer the question, what are all the different reason why YOU help in disasters or when other people are in trouble. We hope that your personal reasons may inspire others to do the same. We know that each person is different so we are mainly interested in what motivates YOU to help. Can you tell us of any situation where you responded to an emergency or disaster to help people in trouble physically, charitably, or otherwise? A MONTAGE OF STILL SHOTS OF THE HELPERS THAT WE INTERVIEWED WHILE NARRATOR VOICE OVER IS HEARD NARRATOR Floods, mud slides, tsunamis, fires, earthquakes, volcanic eruption with ash and lava flows, poisonous gases, radiation, meteorites, avalanches, hurricanes, tornadoes, dust storms, sand storms, drought, land slides, plague, air-born, insect and animal born viruses and deadly micro-organisms... Pakistan, Iran, Niger and other areas of Africa, China, Japan, the Caribbean, Guatemala, India, Russia, Malaysia, Sir Lanka, Indonesia, Thailand, Maldives, Somalia, finally disasters stuck America and you still You did nothing and others did little. What are your excuses the and reason for doing NOTHING and non-action, and non-participation. After the hurricanes Katrina and Rita, even a group of homeless people took up a collection to help the victims. The odds of a disaster of one type or another happening to you, your family and close friends in your lifetime is likely ONE HUNDRED PERCENT certain. It can happen when you are at home, at work, in school, shopping, on the road, traveling, vacationing, visiting, on the way home, or hiding in a bunker. Nevertheless that is NOT the primary reason that you should become a Helper. You are part of the human race. We ALL are living on this violent planet. You are part of the world family. There is always SOMETHING that YOU can do small or large. I appeal to your head as well as your heart. Consider this. When you are injured, do not the cells of your body rise to the occasion, take action to heal your wounds and stop the pain, stop the bleeding, and stop the suffering? The GREATEST essence and purpose of life is to sustain itself. We too are all CELLS of the human race. It starts within you and is extended to all others on the planet. You are not too small to make a difference. Consider yourself like a tiny electron. Even the tiniest action you take will set forces into motion that will reverberate throughout the world for an eternity. Like an infinite line of billions of tiny falling dominos. One tiny domino can affect billions. Each action you take has consequences around the world. You will not always see the affect you are creating, but it is inevitable nevertheless. Your failure to take any action and your failure to help ALSO has consequences -- BAD CONSEQUENCES. Stretch out and help. Extend the value and essence of your own life by helping to heal and save others. Don't just make a commitment by saying, "One of these days I will help." Words are cheap. More than a commitment to yourself is needed. We are all interconnected in life. Find the power and strength to DO SOMETHING. You CAN do SOMETHING TODAY to make a difference TODAY. Here are some ways. If you can't remember want to see these and a thousand other ways to help go to THEM.COM. Again that is T.H.E.M dot Com. Them.Com!!!
