Brazil

In all my life I have never heard of such a stupid government allowing mining in an area covering the size of Denmark (17,800 square miles) in the Amazon. Don’t the Brazil government realise that the Amazon is the largest forest in the world that provides us with oxygen. But it seems that profit is much more of a concern than the lives of people on the planet Earth, which in this day and age is not surprising.

A decree from President Michel Temer published in the official government gazette on Wednesday dissolved the protected area. Brazil is seeking to stimulate economic activity as Latin America’s top economy emerges from the worst economic crisis in more than a century. If the Brazil government keep this up the whole of the Amazon will disappear within a few decades and then what do we do?

The Amazon As It Used To Be

It is said that the government wants to mine gold, iron and manganese which this area is ‘presumed’ to have in abundance. What the President is doing is putting the lives of people on this planet in danger from lack of oxygen if he continues with the plan. Without doubt this activity will extend further if more riches are found under the soil in other areas.

Parts Of The Amazon Now!

We have already cut down huge swathes of forest to increase farming land across the world, but it does not seem to have any impression on the public. What most people do not realise is that the amount of oxygen in our atmosphere keeps us alive and if we continue to cut down trees across the world we will be left with very little.

The oceans also provide us with oxygen, but to a much lesser degree because it is so contaminated. Plastic is the number one contaminant of our oceans and all that is down to mankind. We pollute the oceans all across the world with plastic, oil and chemicals that come from our farmland and make their way into the oceans through our streams and rivers. Already we see plastic in the fish that are caught in the oceans.

I can see in 100 years time that this planet will not be able to support life as it used to because of all the contamination. But it is prophesied that by then we will have found other planets on which to live, but that will only be for the rich. The poor will die here on Earth due to the contamination.

It is without doubt a tragic tale of mankind on this planet, for we are killing ourselves through sheer stupidity and heartlessness. If mankind is to survive on this planet of ours than we need to make major changes to the way we live. Otherwise we will not be around in one or two hundred years time.

Car Pollution Poisoning Your Lungs

When I was young we took care of our planet and did not over-fish, contaminate the atmosphere as we do now, and used natural resources on farmland instead of chemicals.

The population of the world has exploded in the last forty years and it is impossible to feed everybody. Look at the starving populations in Africa and elsewhere where there is not enough food for everybody.

What with the increase in climate temperatures, caused solely by our pollution of the atmosphere with cars and factories, we cannot grow food in many places in the world, the biggest being Africa. If we continue like this it will be the end of us on this planet!

Many countries have said they will do something to limit the carbon dioxide in our atmosphere but to date I have not seen any progress. Have you? We still go on in the same old way with cars and factory pollution and nothing is done about it.

Diesel – The Killer

It is said that in Britain they wish to abandon diesel cars by 2040, but that is a long time from now and far too late. Unless we take strict measures to reduce the pollution in our skies things will get worse and worse. 2040 is far too late for by then the whole atmosphere will be so contaminated people will going around in gas masks. Already people in some country’s wear surgical masks when they go outside for fear of the pollution getting into their lungs. Soon this will spread across the whole globe.

Why can’t people see that they are ruining the planet we live on? I’m just glad I won’t have to live in the future.
