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.

Waste of resources, London building site

Has anything changed in the time I first posted this last March? I don’t think so. We are probably still wasting resources as if there is no tomorrow.

28th March 2021

This building site hoarding represents a great waste of natural materials and a source for long term damage to the environment. It’s single use for a start and will either end up in landfill or be incinerated. The materials used are not just natural wood as in previous times but are covered in all sorts of glossy materials which are most likely not natural and that will pollute the environment for possibly a long time into the future. Hoardings should be reusable. These are just an example of a rich society that just throws away and therefore, if used, should carry a large environmental loading tax.

A destroyed West African rain forest and obese Westerners, London

First blogged on the 19th of March 2021 forests are still being destroyed to grow cocoa to make sugar laden chocolate and those addicted to it fat.

19th March 2021

Pile it high chocolate representing a destroyed rain forest somewhere on the planet with probable economic slavery thrown in of the growers paid far below what first world workers would earn so Westerners can stuff themselves with sugar laden products that make them obese and ill. Economics if not the dirtiest game then certainly one of the most dirty games that humans play. 15th of September 2018.

How long before Earth erases all traces of Homo sapiens?

I posted this on the 2nd of January 2021. It’s a photo that I took and that got me thinking. It’s difficult for many to imagine the Earth without us human primates but relatively speaking Homo sapiens haven’t been around for that long in geological time and even so in this form of extreme use and destruction of the planet’s resources and life support systems.

2nd January 2021

Finding the remains of other human species is reasonably rare and of other species that have come and gone. H. sapiens have scarred the planet far more deeply than others so it would presumably take a lot longer to bury all trace or most of the traces of our existence should we by dumb enough to aid ourselves in going extinct. If it happened tomorrow imagine intelligent aliens arriving one hundred years from now or a thousand, ten thousand or one hundred thousand. Would any of what we have done be left poking out of the surface? I took this photo in the overgrown cemetery at Brompton in London near the Chelsea football stadium. You can see how quickly the plants, then bushes and then trees take over the untended graves. The arch in the picture would take longer but eventually plant life would gain a hold in small crevices and eventually it would come tumbling down. We forget that we exist on a dynamic changing planet and we often ignore that we are here because of the way it works. Currently we are doing our best to break it and this may well indeed lead to our extinction if we are not too careful. We must therefore as a species learn to tread more carefully upon it.

Ferris wheel, Winter Wonderland 44, Hyde Park, London

The ferris wheel lights up the sky.

If I remember correctly it was cold, very cold for me and my fingers had trouble with the camera as they get numb in the winter. My other recollection of different Winter Wonderlands in Hyde Park is that it often rains in December and despite the wooden boarding put down, that it often turns into a bog with mud coming up in some places between the boards.

I’ve never got the hang of taking photos outside of the daylight hours and never got round to reading about how to do it. Something that I still need to do because nighttime can provide a source of excellent images. 10th December 2013.
