The Facing Future Initiative

In the spring of 2020 Stuart Scott left the more narrowly defined shell of ScientistsWarning.org and .TV to a team he had assembled for that initiative, and formed a more broadly defined Facing Future initiative, with a FacingFuture.earth website and FacingFuture.TV YouTube channel.

Note that the FacingFuture.TV YouTube channel has gone through a number of name changes since it was started in 2015. The original channel name was ClimateMatters.TV which was changed to  ScientistsWarning.TV in 2018 before becoming FacingFuture.TV in 2020.

In 2018 Stuart Scott started the Scientists’ Warning Initiative with Dr. William Ripple of the Alliance of World Scientists (AWS) to serve as its activist arm. This provided a means for the general public to endorse the warnings that AWS had produced and published. In the fall of 2019 AWS published the “World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency” in recognition of the climate crisis and the need for real action by corporate, financial and political leaders.

Stuart’s focus is now Facing Future whose message focuses on two fundamental causes of the environmental crisis:

  • An economic system that focuses on the need for continuous growth.
    Whenever economists are asked or confronted on this issue, obfuscation techniques are used.
  • A spiritual void in the general population.
    We, in general as a society, have sold our soul to the Devil which in this case is ‘money’. We are hypnotized with filling this void with stuff.

Facing Future recognizes that the transformation of our current economic system is imperative. We must evolve from a neoclassical growth model to ecological economics.

Facing Future uses the same logo as the United Planet & Faith Initiative, which symbolizes how Faith and Science are two of the most influential forces in global society.
