Many more thousands of people will be dieing in Nepal. The triangle of life is one way of maximizing survivability. It was sad to see that the Nepalese Government and other Agencies were so inexperienced as to allow people and/or parliament to re-enter damaged buildings. For the next month many hundreds if not thousands of damaged buildings will collapse; some without warning and/or aftershock.
Yesterday,In an email from a Lt Colonel, in India who wants to further distribute ‘the triangle of life’. He wanted to know the specific differences between ‘duck and cover’; and the ‘triangle of life’
This applies to the Personnel of the Relief Agencies in Nepal and will determine their survival.
My Dear Doug Copp,
In as mush as I agree with you on Triangle of Life, yet I want to know:
1. The difference between “Triangle of Life Vs Duck/ Cover & Hold”?
Getting in a safe open void or survival space VS getting under something that is crushed, Life vs death, 90% survival compared to 2% survival, body uninjured vs squashed.
2. What are the advantages of “Triangle of Life over Duck/ Cover & Hold”?
3. What are the advantages of “Duck/ Cover & Hold over Triangle of Life”?
The insurance Companies have much larger profits; because, dead people (schoolchildren) don’t sue. Live survivors sue; seeking damages and compensation for injury or emotional trauma. Be assured: The USA Insurance Companies will murder every child, in the world..so that it doesn’t interfere with or reduce their USA School Board Insurer profits.
2. What is the price to invite you to India (New Delhi) to a one day
workshop on “Triangle of Life Vs Duck/ Cover & Hold”?
Flight/Hotel/incidentals/ I would stay for 7 to 12 days. I would not want a profit; just expenses. If we get an India web page online (see below..it will cost nothing for me to come, to India.)
If the flight/hotel and other expenses are donated then there is no cost.
We are creating a http://www.supportamericanrescueteaminternational.org , .com, .net website ;
It will be online, in 4 weeks. The purpose is to collect tax free donations from USA citizens, for ARTI work.
I plan to have a main page with links to 20 sub pages. One of those pages would be teaching the triangle of life, in India.
I suggest that you help to create this site. Go to http://www.dougcopp.me and http://www.amerrescue.org and amerrescue youtube channels to pick out pictures and material ( such as the Business and Economy Magazine Article (India) which describes ‘duck and cover’ as passe; to be replaced by the ‘triangle of life’.)to put on the ‘India’ donation page.
Oil Companies: Climate Change is a fraud.
Pharmaceutical Companies: Non prescription remedies are a fraud.
Chemical Manufactures: Environmental Illness is a fraud
Cigarette Companies: Cigarettes won’t hurt you. Anybody who says they do is a fraud
School Board Insurers: The triangle of Life and Doug Copp are frauds. (Dead children don’t seek compensation. Killing children to maximize an already profitable business is excessive.)
There is no limit to greed. Anything that interferes with profit is a fraud.
There is No shortage of idiots. The path of truth is always a battle….doug copp
Galileo, Copernicus, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, President Kennedy..etc etc..etc. All paid the price for truth. My conscience made my decision for me: Duck and Cover’ is a murderous fraud.
So, what else is new?
Maximize the Good. Minimize the bad. This is My Creed at Major Disasters and Life. Life is wonderful.
