A message for the world

“We live in a completely corrupted world where every government is just a bunch of businessmen working for a bunch of bigger businessmen and none of them give a shit about the people. The sad fact is no one knows how to change it, because no one knows how to take on the corporations. So I guess we’re stuck with this system until the oil runs out.” Watch below:

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? READ MORE.

If you love Dolphins;You will love this vid@sea world

Dozens of animal activists have swarmed a dolphin show at Sea World, on the Gold Coast, this morning.

Video captured by Kaylee Hallam shows the group of protesters storming down the stairs of the Dolphin Cove just after 11am with banners featuring anti-Sea World messages, including “SeaWorld equals slave world” and “captivity is cruelty”.

“This is not a natural environment for the dolphins… there is no excuse for animal abuse,” one male protester shouted through a megaphone.

“We’re speaking for the love of dolphins,” he said, eliciting audible boos from the crowd.
The present activities regarding our interaction with animals is getting really old,so its time we sheep pull back and work on a new future with Mother Nature.

Pay for your subway ride in Beijing by recycling a plastic bottle : TreeHugger

The city of Beijing has come up with an ingenious idea to encourage people to recycle more. It has installed 34 “reverse” vending machines in subway stations throughout the city. When a passerby inserts an empty plastic bottle, the machine’s sensor scans it to assess the value of the plastic – anywhere from 5 to 15 cents – and spits out a public transportation credit or extra mobile phone minutes. The reward is commensurate with the quality and number of bottles being fed into the machine, although there is also the option for people such as tourists, who don’t need the rewards, to insert bottles anyways.

Most of the recycling machines, according to Recycling Today, are placed in high-traffic or touristy areas, such as the Temple of Heaven, which sees as many as 60,000 people pass by daily. When you consider that most people have a plastic bottle of something in their hands, whether it’s water or soda, that’s a whole lot of plastic that city officials don’t want to see littered on the ground. This system, with its free rewards, makes recycling more appealing, and is a good step forward for a city that’s already notorious for its environmental degradation.

The idea is catching on. In Sydney, where TakePart reports that “beverage containers now outstrip cigarette butts as the most littered item,” the city officials placed Envirobank reverse vending machines throughout the city. Unlike traditional recycling bins, where people would throw regular garbage and contaminate the recycling, making it hard or impossible to process, this machine only fits plastic bottles and soda cans. Because it immediately crushes them, each Envirobank can hold up to 3,000 items. The rewards are nice – food truck vouchers, tickets to the city’s famous New Year’s Eve party, and bus passes.

While I think these initiatives are great, they don’t really solve the bigger issue of disposable plastic. Recycling, as useful and good as it can be, is not an ideal solution. Plastic can never be fully recycled, but is always ‘down-cycled’ into a lesser form of itself until it cannot be reworked and eventually gets landfilled. The most important task is to educate people about the importance of reusability, and get people off their addictions to bottled water and soda and onto using reusable bottles and cups.

Racial Emotional Editing on the Internet

It is easy to feel disconnected from human beings to whom we are neither related by blood nor fate and with whom we share few cultural connections;people whose range of emotional expression and personalities may feel very different from our own or from anyone we know.

 And so bear this in mind;however many kinds of snow there are,and however many words for them, they all, in the end,melt down to water.

A piece of this article from the above link:

Peter Head
Civil engineer

Peter Head, 60, is an unlikely man to be leading a cultural revolution. The soft-spoken Englishman, a director of Arup and one of the world’s leading bridge builders, is now the master planner of the world’s first true eco city.

His brief from the Shanghai city authorities may have been simple, but in building and design terms it was the equivalent of a moonshot: to build on an island at the mouth of the Yangtze a city for 500,000 people that can lead the world’s fastest growing economy out of the industrial age into the ecological one. Dongtan will cost $50bn or more, and be a prototype for 400 or more similar Chinese cities over the next 30 years.

Nothing like this has been tried before, Head says. “It’s a complete paradigm shift. It is to be three, four or five times an ecological improvement on anything that exists. China is trying to use ecological efficiency to detach resource use from economic growth, the traditional development path. It’s a different way of thinking. They believe a new economic model will come out of it.”

Dongtan will be all but self-sufficient, powered by wind, wood and sun. Its cars will be electric or hydrogen-fuelled, and its buildings will be mini power stations. There will be no landfill sites and 80% of waste will be recycled. Enough local food will be grown to supply much of the city’s needs. Turf-covered rooftops will collect, filter and store water, and solar panels will heat it; wind turbines will provide nearly 20% of its energy needs.

“China came to us with the idea. I was shocked by the scale of their ambition but they’re deadly serious. Every province in China is building a demonstration eco city like this.”

David Attenborough makes emotional plea in Planet Earth II finale

http://www.zmescience.com/science/news-science/david-attenborough-planet-earth-13132016/

It seems we humans are still in our infancy as we struggle with the nature of our living planet and it’s diversity.

But will we learn to control our population explosion, before we eat all living things faster than they can reproduce.

In order to obtain sustainability, our governments must act quickly,with larger, more bio-protected reserves,which must have a heavily monitored work force to enforce poaching.
