*********************************************************

In the idea stage, a possible non-profit, or cooperation with one or more other non-profits, to facilitate the invention and development of climate change inhibiting technologies. As an inventor, I (Paul) have found that inhibiting catastrophic climate change through invention can succeed and should have a major impact, yet our government consistently manages to sandbag lone inventors in these critical fields. We should be called as an organized and visionary group to invent the inhibition of climate change out of our sincerely held beliefs. Not starving the inventors and having enough resources to develop inventions are vital considerations.
