“I’m going to buy a small piece of land”. How many have thought that or heard that or done that? – Environmental loading 6

I posted this in March of 2021 and as far as I can tell we humans are still taking more of the world’s dry surface and not less as we should be doing. Our footprint is very far from natural.

2nd March 2021

I’ve heard it in conversation and also have known people who have done it and it’s perhaps one of the heights of the human centric view, at least the Western view that we can actually buy and own land.

Back in 1800 or so there were 1,000,000,000 human primates and in 2021 there are 7,800,000,000 and still growing. In 2020, just 366 short days, despite deaths through the corona virus, wars, other diseases and old age the human primate population increased in number by 80,000,000. That’s not the number of babies born that’s the additional number of babies born, the equivalent of reproducing the population of Switzerland ten times over, once a month almost.

In those two centuries or just over, those few generations have taken over more and more land, they’ve migrated, settled, destroyed forests, meadows, woods and grasslands and killed countless animals and probably wiped out innumerable species because every individual wanted a “small piece of land”. In the minds of the individual it’s just that, a “small piece of land” but scaled up and the human primate has devoured a large part of the planet. In the US alone 2% of the surface is grass, an area the size of Greece, where once forests, meadows, grasslands and woods once stood wild and that are now covered in a flat pesticide soaked green wasteland mown short using climate change generating tools.

For the sake of the planet, ecology, evolution, biological diversity individuals must stop thinking in human centric terms that they need to buy a “small piece of land”.

Plantlife and Butterfly Conservation Support

In the UK I am in the process of getting contracts with these two charities and therefore will be donating a percentage of sales from any of our items for sale on our website www.junagarhmedia.co.uk to them. The initial product that I approached them with was my story Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. This is available as a pdf on our website and for the Kindle and a printed book from Amazon. Below is a synopsis and some artwork. If you need further information about any of our products please don’t hesitate to ask.

Bea Bee is the most resourceful, hardest working and happiest bee living in a hive located in a beautiful meadow. One day she notices a new sign on the gate and goes back to the hive to get wise old bee to come to the gate with her and read the notice as she doesn’t understand all the words. The news is bad; the sign is for a planning application to build houses all over the meadow. Wise Old Bee suggests that only if a rare or endangered species is found in the meadow is there a chance that the meadow can be saved. Bea suggests a wild idea on how to save the meadow from this happening. If they don’t then they are going to have to move the hive.

Her plan is fairly simple. There are some red flowers down near the stream that produce some fairly sticky pollen and she thinks that if she disguises herself as a red bee people will believe that there is a new species of bee. At least it will give the bees time to find out if there is a rare or endangered species in the meadow. Time to tell the Queen about the problem and also a possible solution.

Bea tries out the deception on two young people camping in the meadow and they take several photographs that they load onto social media. Bea has started a series of events that she is unaware of. Two teams are set up, some normal bees to keep a lookout on when visitors are coming and a “red” team to sow the story and keep each other from being caught. They will now try and convince other people but will experts believe them?

Can Bea’s plan and her friends from the meadow find a way to save it from being built on?

 

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow – a work in progress

Today I am working again on my story about bees and how they need to stop their home being built over with houses. I really want to publish this soon.
