Fishing is not natural – Environmental loading 18

Why would anyone think that? The ecosystems of the seas and the oceans have functioned normally for 100s of millions of years with the first complex life forms evolving some 560 million years ago and with the first fish appearing 530 million years before present, https://ocean.si.edu/through-time/ocean-through-time.

Then along comes a monkey, the human primate, a creature that evolved from the water who then, in very recent history, compared to life in the seas and oceans comes up with the idea for a boat. The concept is copied innumerable times as the monkey finds it likes to eat or use many of the life forms that live in the watery environment but without consideration to what this will do to those ecosystems.

Part of his expansion in numbers is very much down to this exploitation without consideration of this environment. After all, teach a man to fish and not only will he have many children who will also want to fish but he will go to extraordinary lengths to feed his pets and also, to force feed his herbivore farm animals some fish before he eats them.

Then some of those who were fishermen become managers and management consultants who came up with the idea that what is needed is a bigger boat, a factory boat and a huge processing plant to distribute what appears to be seas and oceans that have no bounds. Queue repeating this plunder of the watery environment without consideration as to the consequences.

Meanwhile below the surface where most of the monkeys cannot see or are not looking the ecosystems are trying to adapt to this day in day out onslaught as ecosystems do. On the surface the monkey is now squabbling over who, where and when the fishermen monkeys can fish and all the while the fishermen monkeys have more fishermen children. Think about what we are doing in a non human centric point of view and you will see that it is not going to end well.

The human centric view part 1

The human primate has a problem of very centric thinking and it is this that is possibly one of the reasons why we have caused so much damage to the planet and in doing so that we may be making it uninhabitable for us to survive on as a species. This explanation board in the Tropical or Palm House of Kew Gardens in London shows what I think of as an example of linguistics exemplifying that human centric thought process where we are masters of the Earth when clearly we are not. The board states that the Amazon forest extends over nine South American countries. While this is true in terms of human thinking it is not true in reality and should state that nine South American countries extend over the Amazon. Why? Because those countries are at most five centuries old and were created by white European colonists. The Amazon forest was there long before any human primate entered it.

The bigger picture – 1

I make all sorts of links that some might say are very tenuous but I see a connection between many issues that are not reported on.

So this phys.org link, https://phys.org/news/2022-05-record-breaking-cold-brazil-threatens-homeless.html is about the record breaking cold that parts of South America is experiencing at this time.

It discusses the effects of this cold period on crops. If you do a search you will find that around the world there are many places where crop production this year is in trouble due to extreme weather conditions, Morocco, Italy, California, Iraq, Canada to name but a few and due to extremes of cold or heat, drought or flooding. Main stream media do not appear to be bundling these individual reports into a, “we may be in trouble” year, in terms of food production. Many in the first world have little idea where their food comes from or that they too could be subject to shortages and rationing like many in the third world are most of the time. This article is part of the many stating that climate change is getting serious.

It also has a personal side for me. The article also states that in Sao Paulo a 66 year old homeless man died while waiting for food in a food distribution line and he had spent the night outside. I visited Sao Paulo in 1999 and am slightly younger than this man. We would both have been in our 40s when I passed through the same city assuming that he was a resident at that time. Was he homeless then or did he have a wife and children? Did he have any idea that his life would be cut short in 2022? How have the intervening 23 years treated each of us? I’ve been lucky and worked for most of that time but how did life treat him? The point is that his untimely death was so unnecessary but it is probably repeated almost countless times every day. Some people seem fixated on bringing almost infinite numbers of babies into the world but why would you want to do that to inflict suffering onto some of them as adults? Our societies need to change drastically or we will never earn the description of being civilised.

It’s easy to save energy – Environmental loading 17

So why don’t we? Why do we have leaders, who even after almost three months of the war in Ukraine, can’t even instruct lazy, stupid, ignorant construction companies to turn off lights. This was taken on a Sunday evening. How many times is this repeated not only in this country but around the world? We claim to be an intelligent species but there are many examples where incompetent would be a far better description. The climate crisis gets worse each day but many seem oblivious to it.

Humans. Are we that stupid?

The answer is yes we are. Here’s an example. We take H2O and ship it all around the world when the place it’s coming from is complaining that they are in danger from sea level rise. Do you see the irony here or just the business case for continuing? Putting aside the issues of climate change what of the micro and nano plastic pollution that was found in the human placenta and only recently in our bloodstream? How long will it be before someone discovers that these particles and whatever they are attached to can cross the human blood brain barrier because we already know that is true for mice.

Individuals are still wasting food

Do you find it strange that even in these very difficult times that some people are still wasting food? Our food waste consists of cuttings and peelings. There seems to be a problem with certain individuals and their relationship with food. This has got to change. If you waste food then you cannot complain that it is too expensive.

Why do we continue to waste energy? – Environmental loading 16

Currently, on the 31st of March 2022 there’s an invasion going on in Ukraine by the evil leaders of Russia. Now’s Europe uses a lot of Russian gas and oil so why are we wasting these fuels to light up buildings at night and in this case unfinished buildings that could remain empty for years even when they are finished due to the changes in the ways we now work? Behind the invasion which many see as most pressing there’s still the need to reduce our fossil fuel emissions by 50% within the next 2900 days or less. So once again why are we wasting energy especially when it is so “expensive” in monetary terms and very much more so in environmental terms.

“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.”

Littering – a responsibility tax – “I” am responsible

First posted May 2021

Our environment is full of plastic waste. Every corner and huge numbers of drops of the Earth’s water has been contaminated with micro plastics. It may not be you or I doing this but it is our human primate species, of which we are all part of and that we are partially responsible for as conscious intelligent individuals, that is doing it. So this is my thinking of what “I”, that’s all of us “I”s consider normal part 10 and what we should do about it.

We need responsibility taxation throughout our consumption. There are few reasons to be drinking out of PFAS coated takeaway cups and not bringing our own refillable cups to a place where we purchase a takeaway drink. To curb the use of these environmentally and potentially health damaging cups there should be a tax on manufacturing them, a tax on corporations and other sized businesses purchasing them, a tax for branding and marketing them in any way as is the case here and of course a huge fining system for anyone who deposits a takeaway cup like this in the environment like this, with an additional fine on the company for allowing their branding to litter the environment. Take away cups must be driven if not to extinction then very close to it. The planet cannot afford our species convenience, stupidity and irresponsibility.

Time to look at the real world – Environmental loading 15

Originally posted 28th April 2021

So all you fellow Earthlings happily beavering away in your small life bubbles with their narrow views of the world, the link below is a view of the state of the real world, the one that keeps our convenient life bubbles functioning, written from the viewpoint of some leading scientists working at Imperial College in London.

So what’s it got to do with that life bubble of yours based on entrepreneurs, technologists, economists, leading business people, consultants, experts, financiers, wealthy individuals, greedy corporations, spreadsheet warriors and other leaders of the human primate species? Movers and shakers making all that progress happen, the detached house, the next BMW, that cruise on a luxury liner that you so deserve. Well outside of your little world the real world is both changing and dying, not that you would notice. That’s because we are Homo sapiens and we have limited understanding of how everything works but a combination of human primate numbers and that our species are fossil fuel drug addicts, only we don’t realise we are drug addicts, has caused massive changes to the systems that govern our limited life bubbles. If you have an interest in a viable future for the species beyond your life bubble read this informative, easily understandable and visually stunning piece. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/stories/importance-of-biodiversity/?mc_cid=7841e5c7f4&mc_eid=ba8991c2a5
