The Weather

Posted in America, Conservation, England, Environment, European Union, Human Rights, News, Politics, USA with tags , , , , on 25/02/2018 by floroy1942

Never in human history have we seen weather like this winter. Floods have wrecked huge areas of the United States and its getting worse. We see flooding and high temperatures in many countries across the world, and it will not stop because of the contamination of our atmosphere.

In Britain we have a winter that is hardly credible, with snow and cold beating all previous years, and Spring is almost upon us. I would not like to live in England at this time for it is so cold, and the coming of snowstorms is on the horizon.

All across the world the weather is getting worse year on year, and it is all due to the contamination we pump into the atmosphere from cars, trucks and factories. Never in human history, except for the ice age, have we seen such bad weather.

The summers are getting hotter and hotter, with temperatures up close to the fifties in some areas. How will humans survive in this weather? I am glad I am 75 and will not be around to see the future.

In places like Africa people are dying from starvation and the excessive heat in their thousands, and we do nothing about it. Soon this will be in many countries as the temperatures increase. Africa was a country that people can grow crops and feed themselves, but now it it is a wasteland due to the heat.

It is a sad fact that we are destroying our world with so many cars and lorries on the roads. They pump out poisonous gases that are effecting our climate and we are not doing anything about it. There is the prospect of electric cars which will reduce the poisonous gases getting into the atmosphere, but that is a long time away. Once these have been introduced it will take years for the contamination to clear from the skies, if it ever does.

We have to do something to save our planet and soon, for in a few years it will be too late, and we will all start dying from the contamination. It is time for people to realise what is happening to our world and do something about it.

Heading For Disasater

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, England, Environment, European Union, Health, Human Rights, News, Summit with tags , , , , on 24/02/2018 by floroy1942

What is the world coming to? All across the world we see demonstrations by people, and war. I think the world is going crazy! When I was young the world was at peace with almost no demonstrations, and the only thing was the tension between the West and Russia. But things have changed dramatically in this modern era.

Now we see demonstrations across the world and war in the Middle East, and it never stops. The United Nations have been doing nothing except call for peace between nations and they are completely ignored. We have tensions between Russia and the United States and this could lead to war between the two nations. The Russians are backing the war in the Middle East despite the actions in the United Nations.

It is time for the United Nations to do something about it. All countries have been in agreement with the end to the war in the Middle East, and yet the Russians veto the proposals put forward by all other countries. It is time to stop this, and have to relinquish the moment when Russia can veto all actions taken by the majority of countries. We need to have a majority verdict by all nations, instead of one country being able to stop the procedures taken by the United Nations.

I have lived now for seventy-five years, and the changes in the world have been catastrophic. Things are getting worse and worse as countries fight each other, and terrorism is the only thing that is causing this. Although we have seen demonstrations across the world where people are not happy with their governments and the way they do things. Europe is the only safe conglomerate of nations where we do not see mass demonstrations against the governments. There are of course other countries where peace, to a certain extent is quiet, but not all across the world. In South America we see daily the news of mass demonstrations in countries like Venezuela  where the country is ruled by a despot.

It is time the world returned to peace, and if it is necessary, the United Nations should step in with an international force to stop the fighting in Syria. In other parts of the world the same thing should apply where nations are at war.

All across the world we have seen disastrous weather that is tearing the world apart. Flooding and destruction have been happening and we have to do something about it. Before long the world will become unlivable if this weather continues. It is all due to our contamination of the atmosphere that surrounds us.

There are too many cars in the world and this is destroying our atmosphere. Already in China people are wearing masks to stop the contamination from getting into their lungs, and before long we will see this spreading to other parts of the world.

We have to cut down on the number of vehicles across the world to prevent more contamination. Laws need to be passed where it is necessary to ban diesel vehicles, and all families should only have one vehicle. This will greatly reduce the contamination of our atmosphere, and within maybe fifty years we will see relatively clean air. This will allow people to breath properly and reduce the lung disease of many of our citizens.

The trouble is, governments around the world are not doing enough to clean up the atmosphere, and they are afraid to implement the changes necessary. But if we as a human race are to survive on this planet this needs to be done. All nations need to agree on the conditions to clean up our atmosphere, but that will never happen. We will go on in the same old way until the human race is finished.

Summer Is Coming

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, Politics, Spain, UK with tags , , , , on 17/02/2018 by floroy1942

Thank goodness the winter is over and the temperatures are rising. Here in southern Spain the temperatures are climbing, even though we have occasionally cold winds. When we walk along the sea front in Marbella we see many tourists from England walking with just a shirt and shorts and I suppose they are grateful for the warm weather, even though it is freezing in England.

I would not like to live in England during the winter as the temperatures are often below freezing, but things are changing. It is certain that we will get extremely hot weather in the summer, just as last year, but we can live with it. In a couple of months we will get rid of the cold winds and life here will be enjoyable.

Pretty soon the beaches will be crowded with holiday makers as more and more people come here for a holiday to get away from the cold in England.

The weather patterns around the globe are changing as many places get hotter during the summer. This all due to the contamination of our atmosphere which is not allowing the excessive heat to escape into space. Temperatures are rising all across the world, and pretty soon we will have such high temperatures in places that we have never known before.

When I was young the summer temperatures were in the mid-twenties, and occasionally close to thirty degrees. Now we have temperatures up in the forties in some areas and this all due to the contamination of our atmosphere. It is essential that we curb the gases from our vehicles which are causing the temperatures around the globe to rise at an alarming rate over the last few years. If mankind is to continue living on this planet we have to do something about it, and very soon, otherwise humans will be finished on this planet.

There are plans to introduce electric vehicles, which may or may not reduce the contamination of our atmosphere. But it will take maybe fifty years or more for the contamination of our atmosphere to get back to normal. In the meantime, many will die of lung cancer and other diseases. This will reduce the population of our world which is not such a bad thing. Already we have millions across the world who are dying of hunger and disease, and it will not stop unless we do something about it.

Mankind has the technology and brains to do something about this disaster, but governments are not making a move to curb the atmospheric contamination.

Trouble In Paradise

When you look at the world it is a paradise compared with the planets that surround us. But it is getting less and less when you consider the world and all its problems. People are protesting around the world for they want a good government. We also have wars with terrorists who want to make the world their own. They wish to rule countries with their own savagery like Islamic State, and who would want that?

In many nations, the western ones in particular, people couldn’t care less about the savagery that is taking over in other countries. Hunger and disease are mounting in places like Africa and the Middle East, but who cares as it does not effect us in the western nations. It is time everyone worked together to stop this, and by that I mean the people, and the governments.

We are turning our world into a disaster zone by the petty bickering of governments and the rampant destruction caused by terrorists. Millions of people in Africa are on the verge of death by a shortage of food as the temperature rises around the world. The temperatures around the world are rising as we pollute the atmosphere, and huge parts of countries around the world are not able to grow crops to feed the people.

images

When I was young the world lived in peace for the greater part, but today we see wars going on around the world and millions starving through lack of food. Some nations are helping the poor but it is not enough. We have multi-billionaires who hide their money in off-shore bank accounts, but they do nothing to help the starving people of African nations and around the world. They have so much money that they couldn’t spend it in their lifetime. It is time these people made use of their ill-gotten gains by helping others.

The pollution of our atmosphere is becoming more and more as we drive around in vehicles that will eventually see the end of mankind on this planet.

I have lived for 75 years and I have seen the atmosphere getting so clogged with dangerous gases from cars and diesel engines. More and more people are suffering from diseases caused by this pollution, and unless something is done about it we will all be wearing gas masks when we go outside. It is time for the governments of the world to do something about it.

Currently there are plans to make electric cars the norm, but this will take years and years as people will not want to get rid of their cars and buy electric vehicles for they are too expensive. What will happen when we all drive around in electric cars?

images (1)

There will be a shortage of electricity, and power stations will not be able to keep up with the demand. It is an impossible situation unless we start building more and more power stations to provide the demand. What we don’t know is the contamination of the atmosphere when everyone starts driving electric cars. Even if these cars do not destroy the atmosphere it will take years and years for the atmospheric contamination to dissipate.

You may think this is all a load of bunkum, but in years to come you will see that it is true as the number of humans of this planet get less and less. People are already dying from atmospheric contamination like cancer, but if we do not do something about it, it will get worse.

images (2)

When I was young people lived to a ripe old age, but today, and at some time in the future the lifespan of people will get less and less. I am glad I am old, for I do not want to see the atmosphere so contaminated that it will be impossible to have a full life.

Our young people, and babies, will have a hard life ahead of them if we do not do something about the way we live now. But there again, maybe we will all cease to exist if a nuclear war breaks out.

What Is Wrong With The World

Sudan

Watch the news and you find there is trouble throughout the world in most countries. I really am sick of seeing demonstrations in most countries across the world for one reason or other. Mostly it is the governments who are to blame for this unrest. In Sudan the price of bread has more than doubled due to the government, and this has led to mass protests by the people. In other countries we see mass protests against the government for various things and it is spreading all across the globe.

images

In Venezuela the people have been protesting against President Maduro for months, and he is steadfast in not stepping down. Unrest is spreading all across the world against the governments that rule, and it is not likely to stop.

When will the Earth return to peace? I fear that this is never going to happen because of the constant truobles in countries all across the world.

We are heading for the destruction of the human race on this planet, not only because of the unrest that presides in most countries, but also the threat of pollution. You may think that this is all rubbish, but I for one can see it coming. Not only because of the unrest in countries but also the contamination of our atmosphere.

Air Contamination In Paris.

Unless we change our policies within a very short time our children will be dying from the pollution caused by us. There are plans to get rid of diesel and petrol cars by 2040 but that may be too late. With over a billion cars and trucks on the road, most of them powered by diesel, we could see people not living to a ripe old age as they do now. Many will die young due to the excessive pollution of our atmosphere.

Air Contamination

I have written about this before, but no-one takes any notice for their lives are all about what they can get out of life. Everyone wants to be rich and afford smart cars and beautiful houses, but this never happens.

It is about time the people of the world start doing something to improve the atmosphere, and put an end to the trouble across all countries, otherwise we will not be long on this planet.

A New Year Is Coming

Posted in America, Britain, Demonstration, Environment, European Union, Health, Islamic Revolution, News, Nuclear Weapons, Terrorism with tags , , , , on 31/12/2017 by floroy1942

Our World

Tonight we celebrate the beginning of a new year, but what will it bring us? I don’t think there will be much change in the world as the wars will continue, and demonstrations will be as prevalent as this year. People are dissatisfied with their governments and the rules they are making so we will see demonstrations all across the world.

Governments will not change their plans to satisfy the people they rule, and there are many people in all countries who will not accept this. We are sure to find trouble in the new year as the demonstrations and wars continue unabated.

The whole world is a mess except in a few countries where the people put up with the plans the governments make. The war against ISIL and other rebel groups is far from over and the war will continue, but for how long? Some Muslims want to rule the world and it will not stop unless they wiped out.

The United Nations has done nothing to fight terrorism since the Korean War, and they should get involved by sending troops to wipe out these terror groups. It is the only way the world will get to be peaceful again. The trouble is they sit on there fat asses and do nothing. I had hoped that the new leader of the United Nations would at least do something against these terrorists, but he has done nothing.

What with the atmospheric pollution and the wars all over the globe, we are heading for major wars between nations and the end of mankind on this planet.

We have to do something about it or we will see total destruction of our home planet. Countries have to come together and sort out their differences before the whole world goes mad.

Unfortunately this is not likely to happen as there are too many differences between countries. There have been attempts at making peace in the past but these have all come to nothing, for there is still fighting between countries. Demonstrations have sprung up in the last twenty years or so because people are dissatisfied with the way the governments rule their countries. A prime example is Venezuela that is ruled by President Maduro. In this country he rules with an iron fist, and there are constant demonstrations against him. Its the same in other countries.

Another thing we that could cause the end of humanity on this planet is the pollution levels in our atmosphere. There are well over a million cars and lorries on our roads and each of these are causing the pollution to get worse. When will it end?

Pretty soon all of humanity will be going around wearing masks when they venture outside, just as in some Chinese and Middle East cities. The pollution levels are rising yearly with all the cars and lorries on our roads. We have to something about it!

It is expected that electric cars will replace petrol and diesel engines by 2040, but that may be too late. By then the pollution will have risen to such a state that the air will be full of poisonous gases, and people will get cancer and not be able to live a long life. The current generation does not think about the fate of our children and what they will face in the future. We have to start thinking about the future of humanity on this planet, and what the future of our children will be.

Land Clearing And Pollution

Posted in Brazil, Britain, Children, Environment, European Union, Health, Human Rights, Modern World, News, Pacific with tags , , , , on 12/12/2017 by floroy1942

All across the world trees are being cut down at a fantastic rate and it will never end. In the Amazon, and all across the world, the forests are being decimated as mankind ignores the fact that we rely on trees for oxygen to breathe. The oceans of the world also give us the essential oxygen, but they are so polluted that we can no longer rely on them.

Huge swathes of the Amazon have disappeared due to farmers wanting more land for their cattle, and to grow crops. In the Far East large areas of forest have disappeared completely for the purpose of getting more farming land. If this continues we will be starved of oxygen within decades.

We are polluting the atmosphere with more than a billion vehicles on our roads and and they increase year by year, and soon we will have no clean air left the breathe. When you look at the traffic jams around the world you see that most cars have only the driver and no-one else. Very few have more than one occupant. Perhaps we should introduce pick-up points where drivers can travel with someone else instead of all taking their own cars to work. It was tried many years ago but failed.

Electric vehicles are slowly being introduced, but will take tens of years to fulfil before we see all petrol and diesel vehicles disappear from our roads. But what of the supply of electricity? With millions of electric vehicles on our roads we will be hard pushed for power stations to supply enough energy, and what of the domestic supplies that are required to power our homes and gadgets. This will be another big problem for mankind.

We humans are slowly but surely destroying our world, but nobody seems to care except the scientists. They tell us we are heading for big trouble in our world but no-one takes any notice. We all go on with our daily lives and do not care what our children and their children will face in the coming years. Without a doubt they will face hard times as the pollution gets worse and worse.

We have to think of our children and what sort of life they will inherit, for if we do not, they will suffer greatly. Mankind must wake up to the dangers we are putting our lives into, and prevent the end of the world.

Roy.
