It’s Time For Some Drastic Action

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, Nuclear Proliferation, Politics, Toxic Waste with tags , , , , on 16/11/2017 by floroy1942

20170805_LDD001_0Underlying the troubles across the world are we headed for a nuclear war? There are tensions between Russia and the USA, not to mention the threat of North Korea which is the most dangerous country on the planet. I doubt if the Russians will start tossing nuclear weapons at the USA, but the threat of North Korea is by far the biggest. It is doubtful that Kim Yong Un will start a war with the USA for his country will be totally annihilated if it happens.

But who can tell what is going through his mind with threats passing back and forth. He now has nuclear weapons that will reach a great deal of the USA, and if he fires one at the USA, Trumps reply will be catastrophic for the whole country.

A lot of people will suffer because the nuclear radioactivity will blanket most of world and many people will suffer.

Not only do we have the threat of nuclear war but people are dying from malnutrition in places like Africa. Some world countries are sending food to Africa, but it is nowhere enough. People are dying from hunger in many countries and it doesn’t seem to stop.

We have billionaires who stash their money in many places across the world and they should be made to help these poor people. How on earth could someone save billions?

Traffic around the world is also one of the biggest problems in the world today. Watch the news and you will see that many Chinese cities, and many in India are suffering from major contamination of the air. These are not the only places in the world that have smog so thick you can see only 100 meters.

There is no doubt that we must clear up these problems if the world is to survive. Temperatures are rising all across the world and they have decimated the north and south poles, for the ice is slowly melting and this could make the seas rise to unprecedented levels that would flood areas like Florida and many others. We have unprecedented temperatures in areas like Africa and the Middle East among others where people can no longer live.

All this due to the carbon dioxide that is circling the Earth and preventing the excess heat from dissipating in to space.  If this world is to survive we must do something about it, for it will get worse as time goes by. By maybe 2050 this planet will be unlivable and human kind will cease to exist.

Is The World Going Mad!

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, News, Oceans, Space, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 01/11/2017 by floroy1942

 

203_co2-graph-021116For years now the the world has been getting worse, and this year the scientists have told us that the carbon dioxide contamination of the atmosphere is at its highest level in history. Of course no-one believes this and they go on polluting the world with their cars and factories.

If mankind is to survive on this planet some drastic measures will have to be taken. You might think that all this is bullshit, for we as individuals  are surviving quite well, but you have to think that the rate of cancer is rising rapidly among us humans, and its all due to the pollution levels in our atmosphere.

energy-coal-power-plant-smokestacks-with-tailingsWe are polluting the air and the seas as never before with our modern culture, and it has to stop otherwise we will cease to exist on this planet.

You have to think what will our planet be like in fifty or sixty years in the future? Will we still be here? By that time everybody may be going around wearing gas masks as they venture outside and the world population will dwindle to a few hundred thousand.

There are plans to ban all diesel and petrol vehicles in twenty years time, but will that save us all. There can be little doubt that urgent action is required if we are to survive on this Earth.

Even now there are millions of people in Africa who are dying from disease and starvation, and pretty soon there will be none left. The world is overpopulated to a great extent and we have to do something to stop this. For years China allowed only one child per family, but that ended a couple of years ago. Perhaps we should make this a world-wide law to cut down on the overpopulation.

We are destroying the world’s forests that provide us with oxygen and contaminating the seas as never before. Unless something is done to stop this I can see the end of mankind of this planet. We also have to drastically cut down the number of vehicles on our roads for they are poisoning the atmosphere to the extent of which has never been seen in our history.

Already people in cities in China go around around wearing masks that shield them from the vehicle pollution, and as it gets worse it will spread all across the world.

Nobody takes notice of the scientists predictions, and they go about their own lives as if it is all bullshit. But as time progresses they will see that they spoke the truth and it will hit us hard.

gw-images-extreme-weather-cars-covered-in-snowThere is no doubt that the population of the world must do something if we are to survive on the planet. Already the summer temperatures in very many countries have been much higher than in the past. Even in winter the snowfall is massive in some parts of the world, and temperatures are well below what they were in the 1950’s. We have so many hurricanes and typhoons that we have never seen before. Look at the damage that was caused in America by the five or six hurricanes that struck the coast. Huge floods devastated many of the American counties in the south, and it will take millions of dollars to repair this.

gw-impacts-hurricane-ike-damage-gilchrist-txAll the Caribbean Islands have had most of there houses destroyed and the people have no-where to live. This again will take millions of dollars to repair. But what of next year? Will the same thing happen next year and in the future all because of climate change. It saddens me to see so many people suffer when such a thing happens.

There can be little doubt that as we continue to poison our atmosphere, this type of thing will happen year on year and the weather will get worse. It’s OK to shrug it off and say nothing will happen to us, but the fact of the matter is, it will!

Mankind has to make some difficult decisions regarding how we live, for if not, we will see the end of humans on this planet at some time in the future.

It’s alright to say, but we will find other planets to live on, but how will we get to them, and what will life be like on these far off planets? No-one knows what life will be like on these planets for they are a great unknown. Will man be able to survive on them or will they die?

kepler-discoveryIf we do find another planet to live on how many will go there. It is for sure that the greater majority will be left behind to die on Earth. Just a small portion of human beings will travel to another planet, for there will be no way we can transport them all.

I am glad I am old and will never see much more of the future for mankind, for I think it will be very difficult.

The Trouble In Spain

Posted in America, Britain, England, Europe, European Union, Government, News, Politics, Relationships, Spain with tags , , , , on 28/10/2017 by floroy1942

th

For forty years there has never been so much trouble in Spain as today. The Catalan government has declared it’s secession from Spain, but the Spanish government does not accept it. Catalan wants to be an independent  nation, but how many people accept this? We see daily on the news hoards of people celebrating the departure of Catalan from Spain, but how many really want to see this happen?

Crowds gather in Barcelona and cheer the secession but are they the majority of the population? Although thousands have gathered in Barcelona to cheer on their government it is nowhere near all of the people. Very many of them do not want to take this step and the upcoming vote, planned by Rajoy, will show how many really back this separation from Spain.

The leader of the separation movement Carles Puigdemont announced the separation from Spain a week ago and Premier Mariano Rajoy  was livid at the sheer arrogance of this announcement. At the moment he is planning to removed the current government of Barcelona, intending to replace them with people of his own. It is for sure this will cause a lot of trouble in the north, as people who voted for the secession will demonstrate on the streets of Barcelona and there will probably be riots on the streets.

Catalan is the biggest earner in the country, and if this goes ahead we can see that Spain will become a poor country as Catalonia flourishes with its wealth. Most of the wealth in the rest of Spain comes from tourism. Will we see the numbers drop if this plan goes ahead?

No-one knows how this will turn out, but Rahoy has called a general election in the near future. What the outcome will be of this vote no-one knows.

Obesity – A Deadly Menace

Posted in America, Britain, Children, Health, Modern World, News, Obesity, Overweight, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 12/10/2017 by floroy1942

Walking around these days you see more obese people than slim ones. Obesity is becoming an epidemic of huge proportions and it won’t go away. People are stuffing themselves with poor food that is supplied by the food manufacturers and it it needs to change.

Crops are no longer grown naturally, but fed with chemicals instead of allowing them to grow naturally. Many farmers have two or three crops a year fed by these chemicals and they all end up in the food factories. They are not natural, but have many chemicals added, and on the whole they are tasteless without adding more chemicals like salt, pepper and sauces to give them flavour.

images

I cannot for the life of me see why so many people go to McDonald’s and Burger King among others to have a meal. These are the main reasons why so many people are obese, apart from the poor food they eat at home.

Even cows, chickens and other animals are force feed with chemicals that will make them grow faster and fatter and this is no good. For when we put a steak and vegetables on the table we are ingesting these chemicals and it is not doing us any good.

Walking down the street you see obese people left and right, and this is worse in Britain than anywhere else, except perhaps the United States. In a few years time the hospitals are going to be overcrowded with people seeking medical help with their obesity.

It is a fact that obese people will suffer greatly from sickness including, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain types such as breast and colon cancer. There is no way these people will live to a ripe old age as the present old age pensioners do. This will overload the NHS in Britain to such an extent that it will run out of money very quickly. In the end the whole NHS will collapse in on itself.

If people are to live to a ripe old age things have to change, and that means the way we eat will have to change rapidly. We cannot go on the way we are for this will lead to a catastrophe.

Save Our Planet

The weather this year has been the worst in history, and I am afraid we are heading for more of the same next year. The number of hurricanes to hit the the south of the United States and the Caribbean islands has been the worst on record. Who knows if this will be repeated next year and in the years to come. Not only has the Caribbean been hit by these tremendous storms, but other parts of the world have been too, and its not over yet.

An analysis of the past 167 years has found that we have never had such a year as this.  No 30-year period in history has seen this many major hurricanes, this many days of those huge hurricanes spinning in the Atlantic, or this much overall energy generated by those powerful storms. But who will say what the future holds? Scientists expect to see planet climate changes because warmer ocean water is fuel for hurricanes. The Atlantic hurricane season was more intense than normal in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2016. The 2005 season, which included Katrina, Rita and Wilma caused major havoc in coastal towns in the Caribbean and the southern United States.

Fuelled by warmer than normal ocean temperatures and ideal wind conditions, September 2017 had more days with major hurricanes spinning and more overall hurricane energy expelled than any month on record, according to Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach. Harvey spawned record rainfall. Irma had record high winds in the open Atlantic. And Maria hit the U.S. stronger than the earlier two.

All this is due, according to the scientists, because of our continued contamination of the planet’s atmosphere. We have created a cloud of contaminates that circle the globe and stop the heat from dissipating into space. This is one of the reasons the Earth is getting warmer and temperatures are souring. In certain areas of the globe the temperatures are exceeding 50 centigrade, and as we continue to contaminate the atmosphere with our cars and lorries it will get even worse.

If we do not stop using diesel and petrol engines, and cut down the emissions from factories, we will be in dire straits. As the air gets more and more contaminated mankind will cease to exists on this planet.

Electric Cars – Not A Good Idea

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, Canada, China, European Union, Germany, Health, News, Toxic Waste with tags , , , , on 04/10/2017 by floroy1942

Electric cars are coming to the forefront of the future, and what is to become of them? They seem to be a good idea in reducing the air pollution around the world, but is it a good idea? How on earth are we supposed to provide sufficient electricity for them.

We are already overloading our power stations with all the electronic gadgets we have, so how are we supposed to provide electricity for cars by the millions. We will need to build thousands of new power stations around the world to provide the necessary power. And what of the charging stations for these cars? They would need to be built by the million so people can get where they are going.

volkswagen-group-opts-for-charging-network-intercharge-chubject

To me this is not the answer, for a catastrophic building programme will need to be initialised to provide all the power that is required by these machines. This will cost billions for every country if it is initiated. Mind you, we could have charging systems in our own home, but imagine what that would cost in electricity bills.

I agree that such cars would cut down the pollution of the world’s atmosphere, and we could in maybe a hundred years get the atmosphere down to what it used to be and save our world from extinction.

Without a doubt, petrol, and especially diesel cars have been polluting the atmosphere like never before in our history. Cities and towns around the world have so much pollution from these vehicles that the general public are suffering. We have to do something about it, but I am afraid the electric car is not the solution. To have everyone driving around in an electric car, van or lorry would cripple the economy of every nation on earth.

The real solution would be to modify our current engines so they don’t contaminate the atmosphere. I think more work needs to be done to make our current engines less polluting. Doing away with diesel cars would be a big step forward, and by modifying our petrol engines so they don’t pollute the atmosphere would also be a big step forward.

What Is To Become Of Our World

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Modern World, News, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 18/09/2017 by floroy1942

All around the world we are seeing wars, civil disharmony and demonstrations. It makes me wonder what the future of our world will be in twenty or thirty years time. Will we see a global war and the destruction of mankind?

Russia and the West are at one another’s throats, we have ISIL targeting many countries across the world trying to gain control, and we have street rioting in many countries by young men who are out to cause trouble.

We have world pollution rising at a steady rate, where in some cities the air is so contaminated that the rise of lung disease and cancer is rapidly increasing. We have a grave shortage of water and food in some countries where the land is being turned into a desert. Africa is a good example.

Those of us that live in the West watch the news but don’t think of the consequences because it is far away from us. Our lives go on uninterrupted for we don’t care what happens in other countries.

Migrants from the continent of Africa have swarmed into Europe to escape the drought, hunger and wars that are taking place all across Africa. Most of them are Muslims, and eventually they will cause havoc in Europe as they try to take over and turn the whole continent into a Muslim state. You can think what you will, but this is a major possibility as more and more pour in.

Climate change has caused many countries to suffer, like the USA. When in the past have we seen hurricane after hurricane causing so much destruction? The hurricanes have unleashed massive destruction across the Caribbean and the flooding has caused more than a million people to leave their homes, even in the south of the United States. Thousands of people have been made homeless across the Caribbean islands, and houses have been destroyed right left and centre in the southern states of America. Flooding has consumed a huge portion of the southern United States and this has never happened on such a large scale before, and its all due to us poisoning our atmosphere with traffic and factories.

Climate change has even affected the north and south pole regions where ice is melting at an unbelievable rate. At the north pole the ice cover is a fraction of what it once was, and the south pole has seen huge swathes of ice islands broken off and floated out into the ocean.

Some European companies have said recently that they will be turning their factories into making electric cars, but with the whole of Europe driving these cars what is going to happen to the power grids? There are not enough power stations to satisfy the demand for an all electric car system across Europe. America is very slow in making this change but they will be hit with the same problem.

Civil unrest is spreading across many countries with demonstrations, and it often turns into violence. The people are unhappy with their governments because they do not do enough to house and help the poor. The rich get richer and the poor get no help at all. There are many billionaires in the world today, but they do not release some of their money to help the poor. It’s all down to greed, and that is the one disease that is very common today. Why do they not release money to help the poor and starving in Africa and across the world.

With climate change things will get much worse in the foreseeable future so we have to do something about it. There can be no doubt that if we change our ways it will take very many years for the Earth’s climate to get back to what it was when I was a boy. In the meantime things will get worse year on year until we stop polluting our climate’s atmosphere.

Roy.
