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.

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.

Quote by Edgar D. Mitchell

Since I first posted this these words seem even more poignant.

Originally posted 28th May 2021

I think I know how this very brave man felt.

“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.”

Spring time and the need for trees

I first posted this almost a year ago but the fate of trees has not fared well.

14th March 2021

At this time of year, in the northern hemisphere, many trees will be starting to blossom and as we should all know by now, we need our trees to combat climate change since we will in all probability cross the 420ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere sometime during this season.

It’s unfortunate that the value of trees is still not being recognised as so many are being cut down because they stand in the way of the growing obesity of urbanisation, or as in the case of the UK, for an unwanted high speed train, HS2, that is and will destroy over one hundred ancient woodlands. Then there are the people moving house who don’t like the trees in the garden so cut them down. In this time of what is a climate change crisis there should be a preservation order on all trees and it should be an ecoside criminal offence to damage what are a vital part of the planet’s life support systems.

The human primate, the most disgusting of species

I posted this last February. 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

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

2021 – Another hot year?

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)

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

I posted this a year ago. What happened to the Christmas trees of 2020 and 2021? 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.
