Jesus said

So Jesus said, “After I’m gone I want you to celebrate my birthday by trashing an ecosystem, plant a monoculture of trees, spray it with nature damaging and destroying chemicals, wait a few years, trash the monoculture ecosystem by cutting the trees, transport the trees long distances by burning fossil fuels causing climate change, floods, heatwaves, crop failures and damnation and after a few days of celebration these dying trees can be burnt or buried releasing their toxins into the soils, water and the air. We shall call this celebration of my birth, Christmas”.

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

I posted this on February the 1st 2020. If you bought a Christmas tree for this year it’s something to think about.

February 1st 2020

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 Christmas tree and climate change

I posted this back in January but it’s just as relevant today. How Christmas is celebrated has to be reevaluated in relation to our species connection and current abuse of nature.

January 2021

I have written about this before but since most people will have forgotten all about the Christmas trees they bought and disposed of without much thought here’s a timely reminder. The tree in the photograph and countless others are now releasing CO2 into the atmosphere adding to the already very high levels not seen since before the last series of ice ages began 2.58 million years ago. That’s natural right? Well no, if the trees hadn’t been cut down they would still have been soaking up CO2 rather than releasing it. Apart from that these trees are grown as monocultures. They have replaced natural ecosystems displacing the plants and all sorts of creatures when they were planted. When they were cut down all the wildlife that had re-established itself was again disturbed and in some cases driven off. Then there are all the pesticides that were used and you brought into your home. They are not good for you or wildlife. So make a note for yourself for December 2021 to find a more environmentally way of celebrating Christmas. If you have time try to get your local authority to do the same too.

Christmas starts to haunt us

I blogged this just after last Christmas and it’s just as relevant. If something doesn’t make us immediately sick or we don’t connect it to an illness that we might have or develop in the future then we tend not to think about what could be causing us problems. The fact is that there are a lot of pollutants associated with Christmas and some of them could be very well accumulating in our bodies. Something we should all consider.

December 31st 2020

Christmas already started to haunt us with the first pack of glitter covered Christmas cards. You’ve probably forgotten about the individual specks of glitter but they are out there somewhere in the environment adding to the countless billions of other micro and nano sized plastic particles that will eventually enter the food chains and the food we eat. Then there’s all the wrapping materials that will end up in landfills or burnt producing toxins or shipped off to a faraway land that doesn’t have proper recycling facilities and no way to deal with the waste. Then there’s all the Christmas trees now decomposing. Maybe they will end up rotting down or maybe they’ll be burnt but what of all the pesticides that they were covered in, what will happen to them? Christmas may have looked pretty but it has been very damaging to the environment.

I left you this tree – please don’t water

I posted this last December. A small plastic Christmas tree may seem innocuous until you really start thinking about where it came from and where it will end up.

December 2020

The last occupant to the flat we moved into this summer couldn’t get back because of the corona virus to collect the last of her things. One item that remained was this small plastic Christmas tree complete with battery powered lights. As I have mentioned in some recent posts Christmas represents a great pillage of natural resources and generator of massive amounts of waste. It’s only one tree you might say but it was probably shipped to the UK from China with countless others, containers, plural, full of them. So what did we do with it? We gave it to a local charity shop and hopefully someone will have used it for Christmas 2020 and will be able to use it for many Christmases to come. We must ask ourselves though is this the best use for limited resources especially when resource extraction is causing so much climate change and pollution?

Christmas chocolates – what’s not to like?

I posted this last December. If we are eating these then we in general will be living cosseted lives. A year later and countless people will not including many just out of our site as well as far away.

December 2020

Those of us lucky enough will have received or will have bought chocolates for Christmas. So, not that I’m religious, but this is a religious day and there are a lot of people out there going hungry, many this year, in first world countries like the US and the UK, because governments have failed to provide sufficient support in the time of the corona virus. But let’s go back to those of us fortunate enough to have chocolates in our house. I’m old enough to remember when boxes of chocolate weren’t wrapped in non recyclable plastic films. Then inside there’s probably a non recyclable tray and some of the chocolates will be wrapped in non recyclable plastic as well. Since I grew up our demand for chocolate has grown and therefore a lot more land has been turned over to cocoa production. All these years later and there is still child labour involved in its production despite some very rich powerful corporations running most of the show. What else is in the box? Well there might not be much, there could still be some palm oil and since Greenpeace’s 2019 campaign we should all be aware of the problems in that particular industry. Then there’s the milk. Does it all come from happy cows or is there some intensive dairy farming in there? All things to be considered. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t remember all this stuff either when buying chocolates but a note to self is to try to be better informed in my future choices and purchases. We can change the world, we need to change the world and it starts with you and I.

A Christmas scene

I posted this blog in December 2020 and it’s just as relevant today. Another year and another pile of plastic pollution.

December 2020

Some people might say that I’m being very negative about Christmas and I suppose they would be right in a sense. However I’m personally not very happy living in a very heavily polluted world. Is this Christmas scene polluted? Well that depends. We are all living in a soup of microplastic and nanoplastic particles that we are eating and breathing in. How serious is it? We don’t generally know but since pathogens and toxins can hitch a ride on these tiny particles we don’t really want to find out. A recent study found microplastics in the placenta of women so how much damage are we causing to unborn children? So here’s the link to this photo as I like to make connections and join the dots. Young children attending the Christmas events on this scene in a shopping centre are probably already carrying these tiny and potentially harmful particles in their bodies. Now we need to ask how much of this Christmas display is plastic and what’s going to happen to that plastic going forward. Maybe some of it will go on and end up in the future brothers and sisters of the young children who come to see a plastic wrapped Santa. We need to change and we all need to become aware.

Christmas wrapping and packaging – make sure it’s properly disposed of

I posted this last December. Ask yourself where’s all that packaging now and where will all the packaging end up from this Christmas’s mad season?

December 2020

There will be literally mountains of wrapping and packaging waste associated with today. Try and make sure that it is properly disposed of. It’s in your interest as well as everyone else’s as just like a boomerang some of it might come back to you and you will be eating it or breathing it in as microplastic and nanoplastic particles. We live in a soup of this stuff already so don’t make it worse. We’ve already messed this planet up enough as it is.

Morges, Switzerland – a dying Christmas tree

I blogged this last December. Morges has another tree now. I can’t see why like countless other places around the world they can’t just plant a living tree and decorate it once a year. It would go a little way to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

December 2020

If this dying Christmas tree can be here for the celebration of Christmas then why can’t it be here permanently? This applies to any other village, town or city that somehow celebrates by a tree’s death. It would be better if they planted a small growing tree and year on year reported on it’s growth, the amount of CO2 it was absorbing. It would outlive most of those who planted it. Wouldn’t it be better to celebrate life with a living thing rather than something that is dying?
