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.

Humans, the only animal to burn stuff and hence poison itself

I posted this a year ago in 2022 as well. Has the situation changed in any way? Probably not.

21st January 2021

As this article suggests 3,000,000,000 humans are exposed to smoke pollutants in their own homes, https://theconversation.com/air-pollution-over-three-billion-people-breathe-harmful-air-inside-their-own-homes-152986?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20January%2021%202021%20-%201840217909&utm_content=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20January%2021%202021%20-%201840217909+CID_eff88aaf48ed7c3bc025a7194d90b5bf&utm_source=campaign_monitor_uk&utm_term=Air%20pollution%20over%20three%20billion%20people%20breathe%20harmful%20air%20inside%20their%20own%20homes. We are the only animal to burn stuff and before we discovered fire and cooking our food would have been raw and uncooked. To replace the burning of climate change generating materials is going to require a large amount of renewable resources which have a limited lifespan. We really do need to find what a sustainable number of humans is that the planet can support because at the moment we are way beyond that figure.

Who gives a floss?

Whoever we are, whatever we are doing, we very rarely have time to think about what’s happening to everyone else and the rest of the planet at any one given moment. So some of us floss. We’ve been recommended to by our dentist, hygienist, parents, slick marketeers or whoever.

So consider this. Where does that plastic come from and where does it end up in it’s current form or as breakdown products in micro or nano particle size or as what is left after having been incinerated? Perhaps some of the plastic that we are all ingesting comes from the flossing we did the previous day. Wouldn’t that be ironic?

Now consider that there are 8,000,000,000 of us alive today and in all probability still increasing at the rate of 80,000,000 every 365 days. How many of them floss, how many of them can floss, how many of them have clean water to drink let alone floss? We talk about Sustainable Development Goals and they translate to everyone who wants to, being able to floss, but when is that going to happen in reality? As we know glacial reserves of water are melting and are not being replenished as quickly, two thirds of the world’s aquifers are under stress and rainfall patterns are being altered by climate change due to our burning of fossil fuels.

So when you stand in front of the bathroom mirror flossing your teeth, give a little thought to the really bigger picture of the moment and what your small part in it, is playing.

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

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.

Can We Really Have Screwed Up This Bad? – Yes We Have

First posted in July 2018 and it has got a lost worse since then.

How much more evidence do we need before we admit that the industrial revolution has been a complete disaster for the environment and that our economic monopoly model of continuous expansion and consumption at the expense of exploited humans is deleterious to the life support systems and eventually to us.

Are We Now in Generation VVV, Vain, Vacant and Vacuous?

First posted in the middle of 2018. Looking at what is happening around the world in politics it seems the situation is getting worse with only a small percentage of people rebelling against wealth and power.

It seems to me that a lot of people just don’t care as long as they have their headphones on and their brains switched on to digital effluent. We need everyone’s engagement if we are to stop the current slide into a system where only a few have wealth and with it the power to tell us what to do and how to live our lives.

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.
