ECOLOGICALLY SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE ON EARTH

STEPS TOWARDS AN ECOLOGICALLY SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE ON EARTH,

 

We know, and the petroleum companies know they are selling a product that is killing 10,000 people per day globally.  Per  Dr.James Hansen

In most societies except for dictatorships there is an acceptance that to murder people is wrong.  Petroleum companies’ executives need to be prosecuted.

 

We do all we can to lower the death rate of course, although in many ways we need fewer people on earth. This is the only route to making a change to ecological sustainability.

 

We have overloaded the earth by so many measures:

*too many people,

*too much carbon dioxide GHG production.

*too rapid use producing CO2 without measures

*over use of groundwater or aquifers.

*spoilage of surface waters; rivers, lakes and oceans, with pollution toxic chemicals, human and manufacturing waste, and plastics.

* too many toxic substances used without research on their impact.

*to rapid cutting of forests , plowing of global prairies , steps , veldt etc.,

* too much drying of rain forests which are the most species rich areas of the earth,

*too fast changes/impacts upon habitat conditions and characteristics so species cannot readily adapt and go extinct,

*too high rates of extinction,

*impacts on the ocean currents slowing them down to the point that local weather and even climates will change,

*change of global climate.

*eroding livability so that  Institute of Agriculture and Nutrition at Cornell  University is projecting global starvation by 2050. It is already occurring in have not areas, inner areas of big mega cities, Africa, and remnant outlying communities or societies.

*food costs are increasing while arable land is becoming desert like,

* too poor farming methods which are mineralizing the A horizon, that is, organic levels of soils are being depleted or ruined by our methods f farming.

 

Today we are living by mining out the last ecosystems, or naturally productive areas of the earth.  When we mine out the last there will and  must be a huge crash in human population. This is not a surprise and happens to many species. When rabbits are plentiful, the lynx multiply, when rabbits decline the lynx decline. So, it is with our food supplies. The problem is we use up too many other resources and habitats while producing our food, and we do not produce food without serious impact, and we do not conserve food, we do not reduce our demand by reducing our populations with one child families.

 

The largest problems are:

  1. That corporations have no mind, no heart, no logic to see it as their responsibility to live within ecologically sustainable parameters. They use a model of

“gross revenue  minus costs = profits”

They never consider destruction of earth environment as a cost. To compete and make a profit they will harvest until the last remnant of resources are gone. They constantly degrade the value of human life. For now and for the future.

  1. Politicians do not see their job as designing systems toward ecological sustainability. But politicians have to be above the target of profit at any cost. Those politicians that do not place the highest values on the environment and human life should be voted out of office. This is not a race, it is about progress for better life in concert with the earth. We have to see the earth as our partner. Without this approach more and more of our children will die in the global starvation.

 

What do we need to do?

  1. Correct the above behaviour. Design a system of critical behaviours, standards and processes to live by, that are ecologically sustainable.
  2. Demonstrate, write letters develop class action suits against politicians that are not doing their jobs of managing society by ecologically sustainable guidelines.
  3. Since corporation disregard life requiring standards, do all you can as collective groups to disrupt manufacturing processes. Be selective if you can but make yourselves be heard. We do not need hula hoops, or many pets or, wasteful processes of all kinds, we do not need advertising selling to children or selling a product by artificially creating the demand,— unless it is an important product for arriving at ecological sustainability.
  4. Disrupt philosophical communications that divert attention towards unreal beliefs that become destructive, i.e. no birth control.
  5. Insist on rationalizing the school curriculum to move us toward ecological sustainability.
  6. Make destructive processes illegal. Develop local communities towards ecologically sustainable standards, require government subsidies towards those start-ups,
  7. Tax the negative, stimulate the positive.
  8. Require all vehicles to be green electric within five years. (After all we geared up for a world war in one year).
  9. Develop Canada Saving or WORLD Saving Bonds.
  10. Educate by whole page newspaper adds so people understand the dilemma and the solution.
  11. Outlaw fossil fuels but provide licences in a few spots where it must exist for a few years.

12. Limit our own consumption and behaviours that produce a high CO2         footprint.

  1. Make corporations that produce CO2 to spend their budget to pump green house gases out of the atmosphere. The systems are now in place in Iceland. (Conniff R., The Last Resort, Scientific American, January 2019)

14.  Set standards for remediation towards a better way to live.

  1. Coordinate through the UN and via media with students in other countries.
  2. Students take this and give it to your principal and ask him to implement it.
  3. Monitor to see if he is trying to save your lives.

18.Teachers use this material for the teaching moment and teaching       curriculum.

We are technically past the point of CO2 flooding we must now actively pump CO2 out of the atmosphere. Each day we leave this disaster to proceed requires a YEAR OF REMEDIATION. Do you want to die in Cornell Universities forecast of global starvation starting by 2050.  GET YOUR FRIENDS ON SIDE.   USE SOCIAL MEDIA.

ACT TODAY —TOMORROW IS TOO LATE!
