Indonesia acts on palm plantations and pollution

Indonesia acts on palm plantations and pollution

Posted Mon, 02 May 2016 09:40:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The move to exploit rainforest and peatland with no motive other than profit is finally being stopped. Indonesia has needed to act on mining, forestry and agriculture for decades, and finally the ball is rolling.

Crops for Every Corn - or Sauerkraut!

Crops for Every Corn - or Sauerkraut!

Whether we eat vegetables or meat, tofu or McDonalds, the basis of human and animal ingestion is the producers. These are the plants that are eaten by us all, in all their incredible varieties, providing food and drink to every living thing on the planet. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to safeguard all the variety for our future needs. You bet your fat bottom! Now Norway and Germany are leading the way, along with 137 other nations to conserve what we have, in case we haven’t much left in 2017.

What’s up this week in the Paris Climate Change Conference? We heard less than we wanted last week, but when we’ve got down to the nitty-gritty, there’s some hope for great improvement. Here’s one example from both Africa and the Americas. Although afforestation is hardly a headline these days, desertification certainly is and we want to be sure the Great Green Wall across Africa is working. There is certainly money flooding in and trees being planted, but let’s see more photographs and people actually on the ground there!

Well, we can wait, and wonder, but will we warm to the conclusion of this conference. Everything, as usual, is against us, but the Earth has to win eventually. The alternative is even worse than miserable terrorists.

The future is talked about, the climate is changing, but when will we finally stop the rot. Forests are essential but from Japanese furniture to cardboard and toilet paper, they are still being used illogically and incomprehensibly by people who all know better. The time has come to prevent the disappearance of these trees and all the animals that live in, on and around them. This is a desperate time for us and all the other species around forests.

Water on Earth is becoming rare.

Water on Earth is becoming rare.

The consideration of all factors in your environment is a policy that escapes most politicians, many scientists and even you. Water is inescapable, becoming more scarce and highly useful for normal life. Just ask a Martian. When we look back on the 21st century, and not the 20th as we do here, it is certain that water will be seen as one of the most critical losses from our societies, from the African deserts, to the American groundwater crises; from Manila’s complex water privatisation to simple pollution by nuclear, chemical and fuelling industries.
