Down but not out – the natural magic of trees

I posted this in December 2020 and I’m fairly certain that the tree is still thriving. We just need leave trees standing to carry on the job of carbon capture.

Trees have been around for anywhere between 350 and 420 million years and so have formed part of the natural cycles that regulate the planet. They have evolved to deal with some changes in temperature and precipitation as they aren’t exactly mobile compared to the many creatures that live in and off them. They have in some cases learnt to live with fire and being struck by lightening, to weather fierce storms, to tackle disease but there’s a limit. Was the tree in the photograph damaged in some natural way or by some human?

When did it all start going wrong for the trees? The real change probably happened around 12,000 years ago when the human monkey had the bright idea for agriculture and land clearance. Before that we had been burning them for a million years or more but the human population was not that large and maybe didn’t contribute too much towards their demise but maybe future research will show that not to be the case. With agriculture and the more favourable conditions of this interglacial period humans really got going with their destruction of trees and the rest of the environment. Then the human monkey had the great idea of burning the trees dead relations. They called it an industrial revolution and progress but they forgot in the most part to consider the natural physical cycles that control the planet. Now just over 200 years later, a blink of geological time, we have billions of humans cutting down trees for their daily heating and cooking and in the more developed countries further cutting and burning of trees for what is laughingly called a biofuel. Clearly this cannot carry on and just planting a tree anywhere and anyhow is not going to replace the immense amount of damage caused by our species.

Protect our forests – organic cotton T-shirt for children

*** Free UK postage Friday evening 2nd of December till Sunday 4th of December on all our Teemill products ***

This is an organic cotton T-shirt from our Scientist and Philosopher range with the “Protect our forests” message for children.

Trees form a large part of the planet’s life support and regulatory systems that we and all other creatures depend on. We must stop cutting them down. It’s not just a question of planting new trees to replace old growth forests as they are more than just trees being complex evolved ecosystems. If you read the science press you will find that daily there are reports of further damage to these ultimately crucial parts of the Earth’s ecosystems and physical processes.

Based on a Teemill image. Check out how these products are made using organic cotton. We need to live in not just a sustainable way but one that causes the least environmental loading on the planet. You can even send these items back to be made into new things when you have finished with them.

Also available as a bag and a T-shirt for adults. This is the link for the T-shirt https://junagarh-media.teemill.com/product/protect-our-forests-v1b-c/.

Ordem y Progresso

I first blogged this in January 2021. Let’s hope that with Lula ousting the idiot Bolsonaro that the forests of Brazil will be restored.

First off, this isn’t a Brazilian tree but I’m using it to illustrate a problem. Second, there are probably no countries that are truly clean and green and living sustainably within the ability of the planet to regenerate. That said Brazil is currently one of the worst countries in the world for forest destruction. So the saying on their national flag is rather meaningless because if the destruction of forests and extinction of tree species is order and progress then the human monkey species has got the meaning of the words seriously wrong. Take the case of the iconic and distinctive Araucaria tree. They have been part of Brazil’s Atlantic forest for hundreds of thousands of years long before the descendants of Europeans drew the imaginary line on the continent of South America, https://theconversation.com/climate-breakdown-is-pushing-brazils-iconic-araucaria-tree-to-extinction-new-research-123068?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20September%2011%202019%20-%201406813256&utm_content=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20September%2011%202019%20-%201406813256+CID_1faadc5548eba903dffbb5148a125fe3&utm_source=campaign_monitor_uk&utm_term=Climate%20breakdown%20is%20pushing%20Brazils%20iconic%20Araucaria%20tree%20to%20extinction%20%20new%20research. In the 20th century Ordem y Progresso led to 97% of them being cut down and now human caused climate change could finish them off. What are the reasons for this species and others demise? Quite simply too many human monkeys and there is no sign of any plans to even stabilise that population so many more species of not just trees but species from insects to animals will disappear as the ridiculous mantra of Ordem y Progresso continues. As I mentioned I have only used Brazil as an example of a global human problem, one we will not deal with. Humanity needs to start acting as an intelligent species and not a huge swam of locusts.

The Christmas tree and climate change

I’ve posted this a couple of times 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.

Time’s running out for nature – organic cotton adult T-shirt

Time’s running out for nature a T-shirt from Scientist and Philosopher.

Time’s running out for nature V1B. Humanity has been polluting the planet since at least the start of the industrial revolution. With our very narrow view of the world as a species if that pollution is the other side of the “fence” then who cares. For 1st world individuals their lifestyles often cause pollution in faraway third world countries or at least nowhere near where they live hence it’s over the “fence”. For all of us now though there is no more over the “fence” as our air, water and soil becomes increasingly polluted globally. It is now time for all of us to start acting responsibly in the way we live and act.

Trees – The lungs of Earth – organic cotton adult T-shirt

Trees, the lungs of planet Earth, Scientist and Philosopher.

Trees are a vital part of the cycles that guarantee that what humans call life can survive on the planet. Unfortunately we have been cutting them down at least since we started agriculture perhaps 11 or 12 centuries ago. All plants and trees effectively “breathe” in some form or another but more now than ever it is important to stop forest destruction and also review where we plant new trees and what sort of trees we plant. This is not just just to maintain the current forests and their CO2 and oxygen exchange and their role in precipitation but also for the complex ecosystems that have developed over centuries and millennia. In leaving these remaining forests alone we must as humans leave them in peace for true rewilding and evolution to take place.

Plants – The lungs of Earth – organic cotton adult T-shirt

Plants, the lungs of planet Earth, Scientist and Philosopher.

The natural world, the plants, the trees are the lungs of the Earth allowing the more complex living lifeforms to live and evolve. Without them or if we damage these systems too much ecosystems will start to break down. Unfortunately we have been battering natural systems with our human progress at least since we started agriculture perhaps 11 or 12 centuries ago. All plants and trees effectively “breathe” in some form or another but more now than ever it is important to stop both forest and other ecosystem destruction such as meadows and prairies. We must also review where we plant new trees and what sort of trees we plant if we plant them at all. Rewilding is not just about planting any seedling anywhere because complex ecosystems have developed over centuries and millennia. In leaving these remaining wildernesses alone we must as humans leave them in peace for true rewilding and evolution to take place.
