THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!
I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite...
Over the last few years I have been observing and analysing the human population abusing the natural world, with a select few people interested in its well-being. The natural world itself is a very delicate mixture of organisms, animal and plant alike. As James Lovelock has noted several times, the Earth is like a super-organism, where everything biological is connected in ways that the human brain cannot even begin to grasp at the depths of its complexity. Like the many parts of the brain that connect to one another, the...
Our society loves stories. Especially those about heroes. They beat the villains and save the world/Galaxy/Universe/humanity from destruction. It often requires some kind of sacrifice, like life or personal happiness, but hey! It's for the greater good! We than get the enlightened feeling of how we would do it ourselves, if we had a chance. Wouldn't we?
Obviously no. We in fact have a problem that can put us and our world in serious danger. It's just that this time, there isn't a villain you can put behind bars. No dictators or maniacs with laughing issues. This time, the...
We overlook the death of this world, as it slowly dies, collapses.
How cold wind blows lost by dead trees, poisoning the sow destruction.
We ignore that destruction wins, nature is on its last legs.
We see past the deception and violence, as the call for peace fade away.
How clink expensive weapons, such as money rules, humanity loses all sense of proportion.
We see how animals are tortured and brutally murdered.
We take the lives of those who deserve to live and we let those alive who are not ready to give.
Unless the pace of global warming slows or stops, polar bears could disappear within a century, says a University of Alberta expert in Arctic ecosystems.
While it has been known for some time that the polar bear is in trouble, new research shows that Arctic ice - the polar bear's primary habitat - is melting much faster than scientists had believed, says U of A biologist Dr. Andrew Derocher.
"The climate predictions coming out are showing massive changes in sea-ice distribution," said Derocher, who follows polar bears to see how they adapt to changing conditions. If...
Greenhouse gases are gases in Earth’s atmosphere that absorb and release radiation in the atmosphere. The main greenhouse gases on Earth are Nitrogen, which makes up 78% of Earth’s air, and Oxygen, which makes up 21% of Earth’s air. Methane is also a major greenhouse gas and it is emitted from both human and natural activity. Naturally, Methane is released from some activity such as wetlands, oceans, fresh water bodies, and wildfires. Human activities also releases a large amount of Methane into Earth’s atmosphere. Some of these human activities include fossil fuel burning, rice...
Ok, basically, this is just a basic article about the environment. I'll cover three main topics:
1. Why we need the environment
2. What damages the environment are having
3. How can we help to solve those problems.
Why do we need the environment?
1. We LIVE in it- We need the environment as much as the environment needs us and we live in it, therefore if you don't want humanity to end, keep the environment safe in order for us to live and the environment to live. If Earth provided us with things to keep us living, how can we repay?
I was just being forced to rake some leaves up in the back yard when I came up with the idea of this soapbox. Here you'll find several reasons why leaf raking is not only boring, but a disadvantage to the Earth.
-OK, first off, leaves are obviously biodegradable. So if we left the leaves alone they would slowly degrade. They would make the grass greener, the soil richer, and even make everything slightly healthier for the animals!
-Unfortunately many people don't do that. They break their backs raking up those poor leaves and burn them, which obviously isn't very good for...
