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.

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.

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.

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

Fallen giant, Hyde Park, London – Environmental loading 14

I posted this in April last year and since then we’ve lost so much more forest and other habitat. In many cases it’s as if as a species we are ignorant or stupid.

27th April 2021

A fallen giant and one that is probably one of the few that fell naturally due to its age and size in 2021. Think of what the Earth must have been like before us? Before we the modern primate discovered fire and tools for bringing the natural life of great trees to an early unnatural end. There would have been the occasional crash of a titan in a forest rather than the chainsaw desecration to grow palm oil or coffee or to give some pretentious executive a truly non environmentally friendly office. Trees are part of that important system of maintaining the Earth in some sort of habitable balance for all life forms to carry on living, passing on their genes and allowing evolution to take place. Most humans though just see them as an obstacle to growth and to what we primates laughingly call progress. A progress that is probably increasing the likelihood of our own species extinction. Extinction is the norm and our current mindset is that we take nature for granted. We shouldn’t unless we want to learn a very hard lesson for not giving it the respect that it deserves.

Congratulations. We’ve done it – Environmental loading 12

I posted this in 2021 when we broke through 420ppm CO2 in the atmosphere. In 2022 this happened even earlier in the year. We are in big trouble. It might not seem like it to you at the moment but we are.

7th April 2021

It was going to happen before the end of May that was pretty much certain but here we are on April the 3rd and we’ve passed the 420ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere for the first time in probably over three million years. Aren’t we clever? Perhaps not. Despite a La Niña event we are seeing large high and low temperature records being broken and a very disturbed polar vortex. 2021 is shaping up well for some extreme weather events, snow, rain, droughts with perhaps some killer heat waves, forest fires and perhaps some price increasing crop failures thrown in for good measure. Welcome to the real scary amusement park of fossil fuel burning where the ride seems to be for free. Only your kids and grand-kids are going to have to foot the very, very expensive bill.

“I” consider what “I” do normal – This thinking is a limitation of the moment in time and place you live in

First posted almost a year ago it’s very probable that little has changed in the thinking of the majority of people alive today. Many won’t be in a place where they could consider the question and many will not have had the education to question their existence and what it is doing to the planet’s systems.

1st April 2021

My ninth post of what many individuals have in their “I” view of the world. So here’s a thing for example of the way we as individuals think. If you have owned a car, got stuck in traffic jams and complained about the cost of fuel then you would probably consider all those things normal in your modern life, in this decade or century and your location on the planet and your financial status. Think though none of that or your way of thinking would have been normal in say 1900 and neither will it be at least potentially in the year 2150.

Why’s that? Our descendants, assuming we don’t become extinct before that year and remember there’s always the mathematical possibility that we will so please don’t scoff, would hopefully be more enlightened than we are and some of our ancestors have been. They would consider the driving around and intentionally polluting the lungs of other humans and filling the environment with microplastic pollution something of a horror story. We know that we need to change drastically in so many ways but there are 7,800,000,000 of us human primates currently alive today and many are in the “I” is normal mode of thinking. So what would an enlightened “I” think this is normal look like? It would be considered normal to live in a clean and safe town and city environment where most of the things that “I” require are within 15 minutes of walking or cycling. This is already starting to happen but we are a long way from converting everyone. Paris is making huge strides through the efforts of Anne Hidalgo and Carlos Moreno. So the question is do you care how our descendants see us? For many “I”s they probably just don’t care. https://www.ted.com/talks/carlos_moreno_the_15_minute_city?utm_source=newsletter_daily&utm_campaign=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_content=button__2021-01-25#t-459254

Christmas card and microplastic pollution – Environmental loading 11

I posted this at the end of March last year. The tiny plastic particles from these cards are out there causing havoc in the environment and they may even have devastating consequences for human health. So if you a looking to buy a card for any occasion remember to avoid any that have tiny plastic particles on them.

30th March 2021

Take a look at this Christmas card and the small specks on the table. That’s glitter, it’s plastic, it’s pollution. It’s from the oil industry. Those small specks and countless billions like them are out there in the environment on the highest mountains and in the deepest ocean trenches and they are in you and I. They were found in the placenta of women having given birth in Rome. That means ladies that if you haven’t had children yet you’ll be passing on the microplastic in you to your future kids with all the potential adverse effects on their endocrine systems and other functions. There’s also the possibility that nanoplastic and microplastic particles could be able to pass the blood brain barrier. We really have messed up this planet big time and we therefore need to change. Don’t believe me, just do a search. Or perhaps you would rather not know and pretend everything is fine when it’s not. If that’s the case you are abdicating your responsibility to future generations and the environment.

420ppm CO2 and the climate change causing crisps – Environmental loading 10

I first posted this at the end of March 2021. I guess we are still burning fossil fuels to transport air and cut up potatoes around the world. This might be good for brands and business it’s disastrous for the planet and possibly for the future of humans. We need system and economics change.

29th March 2021

In the next couple of months we will almost certainly break through that little round number of 420ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. It’s just a number and it will increase but we ought to remember why that number is so high because its consequences are going to be far reaching. Part of the reason is the humble potato, not the potato itself but the snack food crisps derived from them. It would make sense to ship potatoes where they are needed but to cut them up, fry them, put them in a plastic bag full of air, put a number of plastic air filled bags in a box and ship a large number of boxes to wherever may make monetary sense but it’s an environmental disaster. Crisps, like many other products need to be made locally, sold locally and consumed locally. Economics must not be allowed to destroy the environment and our shared future. (Yes, this was in an airport, Geneva and it was me with a packet of British crisps which I’m sure the Swiss are equally capable of making.)
