The human primate, the most disgusting of species

I posted this in February 2022 as well as in 2021. I don’t suppose things have changed much in that time.

25th February 2021

Ouch! That hurt didn’t it? We are all part of the human species and therefore we have some responsibility for its actions on the planet. No other species possesses the level of consciousness that Homo sapiens does at this present time.

If you are fortunate enough to go on a climate change causing holiday once the corona virus pandemic clears if you have any sense of duty to the natural world then you should boycott these four countries and in addition try to avoid buying any goods from them. They are China, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand. What we do to intensively farmed animals like cattle is bad enough but this is just depraved.

The pinnacle of human consciousness

Originally published on the 10th of February 2022. Almost a year later and if anything the situation is worse, perhaps far worse. And yet outside of our petty little disagreements the greatest instrument that humans have ever built collects more and more information about the majesty that is our universe.

The pinnacle of human consciousness but with war and preparation for war, Ukraine, North Korea, etc and the increasing mathematical possibility of our species extinction through not acting to solve climate change we risk not being here to receive and analyse the data from what is our greatest feat of science and engineering. The human primate needs to make a massive leap in its development. Our descendants if we survive our current stupidity will be nation less, we will be one nation, the human nation. https://phys.org/news/2022-02-nasa-james-webb-space-telescope.html

February 1st – What has happened to all those cut down Christmas trees?

OK, so it’s not February the 1st and I have posted this a couple of times before. But what happened to the Christmas trees of 2020, 2021 and 2022 and before that of course? We should all be concerned.

1st February 2021

All those cut down Christmas trees must be rotting away somewhere releasing CO2 into the atmosphere or worse still burnt and releasing toxins and particulate matter as well. Are there still pesticides residing in the houses of the people who bought them? Christmas 2021 is a long way off but give a thought to celebrating a growing living tree in your neighbourhood next season. Our relationship with the living world will be so much better for it.

The way cars were – Fiat 500, Soho London

This is the size of a car over 50 years ago and in dense city and town centres where speeds are limited to 20 mph/30 kmh it should be the only size of cars that should be allowed today. Photographed in Soho in London on January 2nd 2023. The large SUVs and blingmobiles should be banned as being too large and fast for built up areas. For a greener future cars in these areas should be shareable and not privately owned freeing up road and parking spaces for other things.

Recycling – don’t bin those pens

Pens are cheap, for many at least but not for the environment. We have a small collection of them where they have run out of ink. One of our national stationers doesn’t sell cheap pen refills. I guess that there’s no money in it. I found these on the big A. I now have four working pens and six spare cartridges. Every little bit of pollution we save happening and every bit of precious resources that we save using is vital. Now if all 8,000,000,000 of us , or at least those that have access to pens and are able to write and that have been educated to write could only do the same.

#passonplastic

This post is from July 2018. Have we reduced the amount of plastic that we produce and carelessly dispose of in those intervening years? Not at all and the fossil fuel corporations are still building new plants to produce more. Our governments must stop this but we also as responsible individuals have a part to play. What we buy has a direct consequence on the profitability of those over packaging items that have no need to be.

The hash tag says it all but will it change anything? The whale with the message below stating that this amount of plastic goes into the ocean every second sits outside the Westfield shopping centre in West London. Inside, there’s not a washable cup or plate in sight. So the future of shopping (yuck) has no plans of cutting down on plastic. This issue is not being taken seriously enough. We can talk all we want and make displays of plastic whales to prick our collective conscious. It looks though that the economic monster that creates all this garbage is not going to change anytime soon.

Books that you really should read – Part 1

2023 and we are heading towards disastrous climate change but so many are unaware or just ignoring it. Take some time out and get educated on what’s happening and what needs to be done. Here are two great resources to help you find out.

Consumer Choice – Do You Really Have One in Today’s Climate of Austerity?

I wrote this over 4 years ago. The problem we have as we did 4 years ago is that so many more people have been forced into poverty around the world that making the right choices in what we consume is nigh on impossible for those on the budgets they have so they are forced to consume the most planet damaging products.

Some of us remember the good old days. Must be I’m getting old. When did buying soap involve it being wrapped in plastic that then finds its way into the oceans and we end up eating it because it is now in the salt, tuna and the anchovies that for some reason we feed to chickens and pigs?

The environment isn’t the only thing that is screwed. Why is it cheaper to end up eating plastic then to buy the soap unwrapped? Because this is the way that multinational corporates do business. I always thought that they were no good for us and how much proof do we need.

We did buy this soap at Planet Organic on Saturday. How did we get it home? I put it in my backpack. It made it smell nice but I suppose with a bit of thought I could have taken a bag with me to stop that happening. Unfortunately, Faith in Nature is quite expensive compared to the corporately wrapped soap in the corporate supermarket. You can see where I’m going with this. So for all those people just about scraping by they have to purchase the soap in the supermarket and eventually they and their children will be eating the wrapping. What great progress we have made as a species.

How to Save the World – Part 1

A return visit to something I wrote a couple of years ago and yep we’re still refilling that egg box in the photo. We all need to change.

Posted a year ago or so. While it’s great that the UK government is making a move to get rid of single use plastics we can still do our bit and stop using so much packaging. It’s not hard.

Trying to make a difference. These days convenience is the cheapest way to buy items in terms of money but the most expensive in environmental damage. This is one of our old egg boxes that we have been buying eggs in for years but unless you have a farmer’s market or a small shop that sells loose eggs at a reasonable price then the average person will be buying these boxes and recycling them if we are lucky every week from one of the large supermarkets.

So how do we change that without all the supermarkets complaining that it will cost the consumer more? Of course they are not going to lose out. In the UK as we know they are screwing farmers where they can and as the dopey and very greedy boss of Sainsbury’s was caught out singing recently, “We’re in the money”.

So, it will have to be the big and bad state getting involved again to force business and individuals to do the right thing because there will always be people, many people probably who won’t do the right thing even if long term it affects their health and that of the their children. It’s not about asking people for an extra 5p for every egg box they use, it’s about reducing the need to have many egg boxes produced because everybody brings their own egg box when they shop. I think our egg boxes still have some life left in them.

2021 – Another hot year?

Make that 2022

Adding to this post again. I last posted it at the beginning of 2022. 2022 was the 5th hottest year on record, https://www.noaa.gov/news/march-2022-year-to-date-rank-as-earths-5th-warmest#:~:text=For%202022%20so%20far%2C%20the,year%20to%20date%20on%20record.. 2022 saw many heatwaves, droughts and floods and it was a La Niña year. El Niño may arrive soon and with it further extreme weather disruption with life threatening events for 2023. The ride is going to get rougher.

I posted this in February in last year. January 2022 was the 6th hottest January on record. That may seem like a dip but the rising curve of global temperatures is not linear and there are many local records being broken despite overall the month being only the 6th hottest on record.

22nd February 2021

It would certainly seem to have started off that way. https://yaleclimateconnections.org/2021/02/noaa-january-2021-was-ninth-warmest-on-record-in-the-u-s-seventh-warmest-globally/?ct=t(EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_WEEKLY_021521)
