Some include news stories and other articles, some include video materials from other contributors such as via Twitter. Visit Dr. D's Twitter page, @MartinJD_SOUL, and follow him there, too!

We Have Run Out of Time, So What Is There To Do Now.
A short essay about exactly what the title states.

Two Critical Problems for Every Child.pdf
Essay relating to Climate and Nuclear Issues with reference to how Children are now active in the Work, even more than many adults who bear responsibility to Act and Help Change - and also about the example of "City 40" and the documentary film about that "closed city" in Russia.

Remarks on Nation-States and their Populations, CO2 Emissions and Climate/Environment Impacts
**** A brief compilation of relevant data with a few short pages addressing Who is Doing or not Doing Actions to Change the Situation that has brought us and pushed us to the Edge of the Precipice (and somewhat over the Edge, now). ****

Raytheon Principal Institutional Shareholder Ownership
This is pertinent to what is developing under the auspices of the SOUL Initiative (read more on the site - go to "SOUL Power" on the menu). Here is a list of the major institutional shareholders of one single corporation that is very much at the heart of the Problems, particularly that of Nuclear Weapons and the Imminent Threat of Global Nuclear War, but also very much involved in the non-responsiveness in Energy matters to Climate Issues.

SOUL is taking a SocioEconomic Approach that is new and different. It is not simply about efforts to encourage simple and clearly confrontational, opposition-based, Divestment of shareholdings and other investments in companies like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, BAE, Boeing, ARA, CSC, Northrop Grumman, and so many others. The SOUL approach is fundamentally Different, positive, constructive, and NON-confrontational - fundamentally, substantively, ultimately. <> SOUL wants to CHANGE these corporations in what they are doing today into something that is Better for All of Us including for them, for their shareholders, their owners, their directors, their management, their employees, and all their beneficiaries and dependents! Yes! SOUL wants all of the aforementioned companies to be able to thive, grow, be successful, and be Profitable! But in Very Very New Ways!

SOUL wants companies like Raytheon to CHANGE what they are doing, what they are making, what they are producing and selling. There is MORE profit and certainly more stability and sustainability in all sorts of advanced and new technologies for Pro-Environment, Pro-Sustainability, Pro-Peace applications. These Better Opportunities include literally every single iota of technology, skill, supply, and resource that these companies and many more possess - companies who are today producing mainly either weapons and military-related systems designed to promote and sustain War - or energy-consuming products that are perpetuating the degradation of the Environment and the instabilities and extremes of our current Climate.

All of this is very clearly, factually, objectively, and quantitatively Demonstrable - and this is what SOUL is all about doing, and particularly through the SOUL Talks.
