PLANET STORM

Some time ago when someone said that something very bad was going to happen, no one believed it. Now everyone wants to run for cover. Retreat to the mountains and wait for the internet to jump, for all technology to collapse. Because this will happen too and we will not be here watching videos but out there trying to survive.
How long have we known that our planet is in danger? We all think that this ecological awareness is recent, that we started talking about the climate only about twenty years ago. But are we sure that we do not send it even earlier? Are you sure no one had talked about it yet? The first “manuscript found” is The suicidal society: requiem for an infected planet, by Gordon Rattray Taylor, from 1970 (in Italy it arrived, for the Mondadori types, in 1971. The original subtitle was a little more hopeful: Mankind can survive! The Doomsday Book). An entire chapter, the third, is titled “Ice Age or Heat Death?”, And tells of the discussions between the supporters of two theses then present. At the time, the earth’s temperature had not yet started the last step of the so-called hockey stick – a term used to describe the period, in the seventies / eighties, which saw a decisive and definitive rise in the earth’s temperature.
If the idea was abandoned by science in the seventies, it was not forgotten by the media. Newsweek weekly in 1975 titled a cover story “The Cooling World”. Many deniers clung to this and other generalist media articles even in the following decades (even after 2000, as Crichton did in 2004) to disprove the idea of ​​man-made global warming. The myth therefore, like a phoenix, occasionally resurrects, as evidenced by this debunking article by Climate Feedback.
The next book is the historian The closing circle, by Barry Commoner (The closing circle: the first American edition is from 1971). On page 39 of the first book he states: Now we are burning these fossil fuels, and therefore the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air starts to rise again: the effect that this phenomenon could have on the Earth’s temperature is the subject of lively discussions by scientists.
Do we think that desertification is in our distant future? Could it be 50 or 100 years to go to have a destroyed soil? We perhaps believe that we will not live in that future and therefore we are calm and instead of knowing the truth and seeing the real data of what is happening to our planet we read romance novels, thrillers, and a lot of other stuff, to forget our lousy life and the disgust humans are causing around the planet. But will all this happen Romans or is it already happening today? It is useless to be there crying for memories, past loves, weddings, projects, ideas .. We are destroying our planet and there is no time. There is no more time. Action must be taken now. Now!!!

The ice sheet covering Greenland is melting at such an accelerated rate that it is now believed likely that it has passed the point of no return and may represent a primary factor in global sea level rise over the next two decades. . The entire Arctic, according to the most recent studies by the American National Academy of Science, is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the planet and the melting of the Greenland ice is the most visible effect. The ice loss had been estimated at 400 billion tons in 2012 alone, about four times more than in 2003. After a stagnation in 2013-2014, explained by the North Atlantic Oscillation, in recent years the process has accelerated again and the The conclusion is that in all likelihood the forecasts of the effects of global warming on the planet have so far been too conservative. The reality appears to be more serious than expected.

NO WASTE-GO GREEN

The problem of plastic is bigger and more important than we think and reducing plastic waste is essential. Plastic is not easy to recycle (it can only turn into a quality of plastic more ways than it once cannot be). Just think that only 6.6% of the plastic bottles now circulating on the world market are made from recycled plastic (Greenpeace data).
Giving up chewing gum is really a small thing that will work wonders! Although it is a habit brought by the Americans after the Second World War also in Europe, and now spread all over the world, the ‘butt’ is not good for you and contains plastic both inside and in the packaging.
Do we eat out for lunch? We get into the habit of carrying our container and asking the fast food restaurant or restaurant where we go to put the food there. Maybe even what is left over we can take home in the same container!
It’s true, they are comfortable: you go home in the evening and dinner is ready in 5 minutes. But beware: frozen foods are the ‘kings’ of plastic. By buying them, you actively contribute to polluting. By trying to remove frozen foods from your diet, you will return to a healthier cuisine with natural and seasonal ingredients, of which you know the origin, and you prefer organic food. Even if you take a quarter of an hour longer, you and the Earth will gain from this choice!
To produce the disposable diapers consumed every year by American children, it takes 80,000 kg of plastic and the cutting down of more than 200,000 trees. This means that by simply switching to cloth diapers, you can not only educate your child to respect the environment from an early age but you can also save money and contribute to the health of the world.

 

PLANT TREES

If you have a garden it is very important to plant trees. I know you love and flowers and you want a flower garden but if you plant trees you can save the planet. This happens because trees help combat global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide and contribute to cleaning the air, taking in pollutants such as ozone, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxides. All this thanks to their respiration and photosynthesis processes. So you can plant your flowers in pots or wooden boxes near your home and in the garden plant trees to save the planet. It is really important.
Trees have the ability to purify the air of our cities through their foliage and their foliage. The factors that produce this benefit reside in the density of the foliage, in the ability to capture dust through hairy leaves, high percentage of stomata, roughness of the trunks, longevity of the species. Trees are perfect allies in this fight against fine particles, effective against fine and ultrafine particles such as PM10, PM2.5 and below, becoming indispensable in heavily polluted cities and along busy roads. Trees have the ability to fix and neutralize polluting gases from anthropogenic emissions, thus becoming a benefit for our health.
Trees have the ability to purify water, through the phytodepuration process, with soil improvement, capable of intercepting organic compounds but also hydrocarbons and heavy metals. The roots form the heart of these plants through filtering and purification. For example, the poplars, willows and alders along rivers and wetlands, in addition to making these places green and rich in biodiversity, have the ability to create buffer strips against pollution and therefore able to improve water quality. . Same thing in a city environment where urban forests represent a filter for polluting waters that are gradually purified through the root systems.
