When will the Amazon reach a tipping point?

I posted this a year ago and since then the damage caused to the Amazon has only increased dramatically. We are like a super sized locust destroying everything in our path.

19th January 2021

The poster child if you like for trees is the Amazon rainforest. It’s the one that everyone remembers and roughly knows where it is but it is being decimated effectively so that the burgeoning global human population and their waistlines can eat cheap beef burgers. Like many countries in South America, Brazil’s population continues to grow. The Brazilians are mostly descendants of Europeans that have only been there for five or so centuries yet the numbers today are so many that they are destroying the country like locusts in a field of crops. Studies have shown that once enough of the forest has been cut down precipitation will change and the forest will stop producing enough rain to sustain itself. How long before this happens is as usual open to debate and many think that it will be in the 2030s to 2040s. In 2019, an economist called Monica de Bolle, suggested that this might happen early on in the 2020s, https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/oct/23/amazon-rainforest-close-to-irreversible-tipping-point. What is known is that the Amazon, a forest of 16,000 different tree species is drying out, https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-00508-4. It is thought that in the last 100 years that the temperature in the forest has increased between 1 and 1.5oC and that in parts the dry season has increased from 4 to almost 5 months in the last 50 years. In addition there has been three severe droughts between 2005 and 2020 and it is thought that some species of trees are thriving at the expense of those that are dying due to the less moist conditions. At the time of writing even the pandemic appeared not to be able to slow the rate of deforestation in the Amazon.

It’s Veganuary – have you made any changes at all?

I posted this a year ago and Veganuary is here again so time to try reducing your meat intake or going meat free.

January 2021

We are rushing away from the start of the New Year. Are any of your New Year’s resolutions intact? Do you know about Veganuary? Perhaps it’s time that you took a small step to improve your health, save the lives of some animals and protect the environment with special reference to the Amazon rainforest. So thing about reducing your meat intake, try vegetarian and vegan options as there are plenty of good ones.

Stop forest destruction V2B – Organic cotton T-shirt for adults

An organic cotton T-shirt from Scientist and Philosopher. The second “Stop forest destruction” design.

A T-shirt highlighting the loss of forests around the world on every continent because of the insatiable growth of the human primate’s population. The land is cleared for beef, palm oil, coffee, chocolate and other agriculture including biofuels. We simply are too many and we want it all. If we are to stop the destruction we must consume less. 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.

Eat less meat – it will be good for you and so much better for the planet

I posted this last year. It’s Veganuary again so now’s the time to at least reduce the amount of meat you eat.

January 2021

It’s Veganuary and if you haven’t thought about it already then consider eating one or more meals with no meat products. This photo that I took in Paris was of some apt graffiti on an aptly named street sign, The passage of the small butcher. There are so many things wrong with the fast food and intensive animal farming industries and they contribute massively to environmental destruction and climate change. This includes fossil fuel subsidies so fish can be caught to feed to herbivores and the tearing down of rain forests and other environments to either graze animals or raise crops to feed to animals. None of this is sustainable and there really is no such thing as cheap eats fast food. There is also the human health aspect and for this additional reason all fast food outlets should be taxed in lieu of the damage they are causing to the planet to serve a convenient lifestyle. So every meal should carry a damage to the environment tax of at least one dollar, one pound, one euro and any other local currency to make people pay the real cost of this style of eating.
