CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

Earth Hour

Tonight, 2015-03-28 at 8:30PM, local time turn off all your lights and optional electric appliances for one hour. Why?

  • It is a way of letting the government and industry know you want action on climate change and green energy. The electric company will see a measurable dip in load from our collective efforts.
  • It puts peer pressure on your neighbours to participate.
  • It helps you appreciate the luxury of having sufficient electric power.
  • It teaches you just how much power you are using without thinking.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, try searching the mindprod.com site with the Google custom Search CMP website above.

If you have trouble with prices not displaying, your browser freezing, or empty Applet boxes, then click to Get The Latest Java free. Then test your install. If all Applets work, but the program listings don’t, see JDisplay for troubleshooting help.

Dirty Tar Sands

Canada’s tar sands are the dirtiest environmentally of any form of oil extraction. They massively pollute land, water and the global atmosphere with greenhouse gases. The problem is huge quantities of super heated steam from natural gas are needed to heat the tar sands up enough for the bitumen in them to melt and flow. You get greenhouse gas emissions from the natural gas burning, creating the energy used to pump the viscous tar, creating the energy to refine the tar and when the oil/gasoline is finally burned. The steam condenses and the oily slurry is dumped into nearby rivers. However, despite these environmental drawbacks, the USA projects it will get most of its oil from the Canadian tar sands in 2012. Canadians have no choice in the matter.

Controlling HIV (Human Imumuno-deficiency Virus)

Trying to convince men infected with HIV to avoid having unprotected sex and infecting women goes against their deep-seated biological urge to fill the universe with copies of their own DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid), damn the consequences to their offspring or anyone else.

Holding Your Money

Electronic transfers take only a few seconds at most. Yet banks, PayPal etc. hold onto your money for over a week. That is one of the many ways they make money, lending it out for that week, as part of giant rolling fund.

An ATM (Automated Teller Machine) withdrawal is clearly cheaper than using a bank clerk, yet the banks charge extra — because they can. The problem is there is not enough competition. Schemes like BitCoin sneak around banking laws to let in a sliver of competition.

Finance minister Flaherty made it explicit. He sees his job as preventing competition to keep bank monopolies profitable when he blocked lower mortgage rates.
