Its getting hotter and hotter this year and it won’t end until winter comes, and who knows what the winter will bring. In the Middle East its well over forty degrees, and we can expect close to forty degrees in Europe this August. All over the world it is getting hotter and the weather is to blame.

We are contaminating the skies with our with our gases and car exhausts as never before, and this is causing the hot weather. I predict that it will get hotter next year as the contamination gets worse.

We have to do something about it before all of us die from the extreme temperatures. It will get worse year on year as the climate is clogged up with the poisonous gases that we emit. There are too many cars on the road and we have to make sure they are reduced. The entire world is choking with cars and they are are emitting far too much gas. In Marbella we get traffic jams every day during the summer and this has to stop. Not only Marbella, but all across the world in America, China and many other countries there are traffic jams.

They pollute the atmosphere with their exhausts, and some people in China wear gas masks to stop the contamination from getting into their lungs. This will be world-wide in a few years time. Already people are dying from the contamination with lung cancer.

It is time the governments of the world started reducing the number of cars on the road to stop this contamination. It will take a hundred years for the contamination to reduce and we are surely going to die from the fumes.

Electric cars are the answer for they will not contaminate the atmosphere, but how long before all people are travelling in electric cars. It will take years and years before the whole world is using electric cars, and the contamination will get worse.

But what of the power stations for charging the batteries? We must build new power stations for the hundreds and thousands of cars on the road. They will have charging stations all across the world and they must have power to charge their engines. Prices will rise for the electricity and few people can afford it. This will cut down the number of vehicles on the road and this is a good thing.

We have a long way to go to before the world gets better and it will take years.

The Weather

What is happening to the weather these days? We have never seen such a bad winter, and it is extending into Spring. There are snow storms all across America, Britain, Europe and Russia. Here in the  south of Spain we have missed most of the bad weather, although we have had it cold and strong winds.

gw-images-extreme-weather-cars-covered-in-snow

In the north of Spain we have had snow and icy temperatures but it has not spread south. In America and Britain we have had snow storms and traffic has all but stopped. Some drivers have braved the weather, but often get stuck in the snow. In the future we will see massive floods across America and Britain as the snow melts.

In other parts of the world, especially in the Far East, there have been massive floods and damage to houses caused by storms. What is our world coming to?

Its all to do with the contamination of the atmosphere by cars and factories. We have to stop this or the weather will get worse. The summer temperatures are climbing steadily, and they will get hotter year on year. Last year we had temperatures as high as thirty five degrees last summer in Spain, and it will get hotter this year as the contamination of the atmosphere gets worse.

Industrial Air Contamination

This is all across the world as the temperatures rise. In the Middle East the temperatures are the highest ever recorded, and as summer approaches it will get hotter.

We have to do something about it or the world will will become a furnace. We have to get rid of cars on our roads and the factories will have to stop putting poisonous smoke into the atmosphere. Unless something is done very soon we will be living in a treacherous world. Governments will have to take some drastic action to stop this contamination of the atmosphere otherwise we will be be living in hell!

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.

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.

images (1)

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.

images (3)

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.

images (1)

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.

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 Worst Year In History

Posted in America, Britain, Children, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Modern World, News, Plastic Rubbish with tags , , , , on 03/09/2017 by floroy1942

2017 has become the worst year in history as we see storms and flooding all across the world. This sort of thing never happened when I was a child, but today we have contaminated the world atmosphere as never before, and this is to blame for the terrible weather we have experienced all across the globe. If we continue, things will get much worse.

170824-noaa-texas-gulf-storm-harvey-njs-1105a_cfe6824a843278e082782d095a130cf9.nbcnews-fp-1200-800The United States has never seen such terrible flooding and wild fires in the south of the country. The flooding in Texas was solely due to the massive hurricane and rainfall that came with it and lasted for a week. This phenomenon was caused solely by the way mankind has contaminated the atmosphere. In other parts of the country wildfires have been destroying forests as never before, all due to the lack of rainfall, again due to mankind.

imagesBut this has not been happening only in the USA, for other countries like Bangladesh has suffered severe flooding that has driven tens of thousands of people out of their homes. We have seen much the same thing in the Far East where people are suffering.

images (1)In Africa a million people are starving due to the weather because they can no longer grow crops. Temperatures have reached more that 50 degrees in some parts of the world, and if you think this is going to stop, then you had better think again.

This phenomenon is due solely to mankind and the way we treat our planet. Atmospheric contamination is reaching levels that the world has not been able to handle, and for sure we humans will suffer in the long term.

images (2)We have become so concentrated on ourselves that we do not care what damage we are doing to our planet. It is time for us to think of the damage we are doing to this Earth. Governments must take action as quickly as possible to stop the pollution of our atmosphere, and that means drastically reducing the the number of vehicles on our roads world-wide, and taking action against factories that pollute the atmosphere.

SeaNet-World-Map-Great-Oceanic-Garbage-Patches-10-Year-PlanSomething must be done to ban plastic on our planet for this is the number one environment polluter. We already see major contamination of our oceans with plastic all across the world. Another thing that should be banned is the poisonous chemicals that farms use to grow crops, for this is eventually polluting our oceans.

I am nearly 75 and I will not be around for many years to come, but all this contamination will affect our children and theirs. Every person on the planet must think of the future, and what we are leaving for our children. It is clear that if we continue as we are they will suffer many hardships and many will die young.

images (4)Sad to say. the governments of the world are not taking any positive measures to reign in climate change, but as the world progresses they will will forced to in years to come. This will be most unpopular with the masses, but it must be done if the human race is to survive on Earth.

Heading For Annihilation

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, European Union, Forests, Health, Modern World, Nature, News, Traffic with tags , , , , on 06/08/2017 by floroy1942

Water Stress Graphic Across The World

According to the scientific data, in 1975 we reached the the maximum capacity of the Earth’s renewal of the planet’s resources, now in 2017 we are using 175 times the Earth’s replacement possibilities. It may seem strange, but Australia is using 5.2 times the Earth’s ecological footprint and next is the USA with 5 times the ecological footprint. Down at the bottom of the scale is India with o.6. In total the world is using 1.7 times the amount of resources on Earth, and our planet cannot replace it.

It is no surprise that the resources are getting used up quickly for we have been thinking only of ourselves and not the planet we live on. We are also contaminating the atmosphere at an ever increasing rate year on year.

If this continues mankind will cease to exist on this planet of ours. Through overfishing, over harvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than forests can replace, humans are demanding more from the earth than it can produce, and this will lead to catastrophe.

Another Forest Fire Due To High Temperatures

Our trees across the world provide us with the much needed oxygen, but they are being destroyed by fire because of the dry weather in some countries, and cut down in others at a devastating rate and soon it will hit all of us. The oceans of the world also provide us with oxygen but they are being contaminated as never before.

Natural resources are being used up far quicker than they can be replaced and this too will lead us to catastrophe. “Our planet is finite, but human possibilities are not. Living within the means of one planet is technologically possible, financially beneficial, and our only chance for a prosperous future,” said Mathis Wackernagel, CEO of Global Footprint Network and co-creator of the Ecological Footprint. I fully agree with what he says, for unless we reign in our appetite for more and more we will cease to exist on this planet. When the amount of water, soil, and clean air that our planet can regenerate is spent before the year is up we can expect big problems in the future.

On today’s news it is said that large parts of the Earth, like central Africa, will be uninhabitable by 2040. This is all due to the steady rise in temperatures and the impossibility of growing food. This could also be true of the United States, for it is undergoing huge drought in central areas.

Already we have millions dying of thirst and hunger in Africa, and if we continue to use up the planet’s resources before they can be replenished we will all be in trouble. Most westerners think nothing of this catastrophe, for we have everything we need on hand, but consider other parts of the world where there is drought, famine and a great lack of water and the people that have to put up with this hardship.

On top of this we are using up all the world’s natural resources faster than they can be replaced. Eventually, at some time in the future we will run out of oil and then what will happen. Back to the stone age I guess. Farmers are also grossly contaminating the soil that grow crops in order to make more money. What will happen when the ground is so contaminated that we can no longer grow food? Already our food is contaminated with all sorts of pesticide which in my view is leading to a lot of the illnesses we see in the west.

Governments the world over must make rapid changes to the way we live, or mankind will cease to exist on this planet. Already some European governments are going to ban the sale of all diesel cars by 2040, why not earlier. By then we will be in dire straits as the temperatures continue to rise. Here in Spain we are undergoing a heat wave such as we have never seen before. Temperatures are rising in some parts of the country to over 40 degrees and this is unheard of in the past. With the man-made pollution of the atmosphere these temperatures are certain to rise year on year, and not only in Spain.

It is imperative that we do something to lower the pollution across the globe by rapidly reducing the number of cars on the road and getting rid of all diesel vehicles. This cannot wait twenty odd years, we must start doing it now.

It makes me very sad to witness the madness of human beings on this planet for very few people, especially in the west, don’t even think about the way the world is going and just shrug it off as it’s not their concern. Meanwhile millions are dying all across Africa but who cares anyway, that is their problem.

What people don’t realize is that eventually it will spread all around the world and then what will we do?

A Catastrophe Is On The Way

Posted in America, Britain, Environment, Government, Health, Modern World, News, Oceans, Plastic Rubbish, Spain with tags , , , , on 18/07/2017 by floroy1942

I read with surprise today that Brazil is to open up 860,000 acres of the Amazon tropical rain forest for logging, farming and mining. If this continues the human race will be in big trouble for we rely on trees to give our atmosphere oxygen. They soak up the carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere and convert it to oxygen among other things.

“Urban forests help to improve our air quality. Heat from the earth is trapped in the atmosphere due to high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping gases that prohibit it from releasing the heat into space. This creates a phenomenon known today as the “greenhouse effect.” Therefore, trees help by removing CO2 from the atmosphere during photosynthesis to form carbohydrates that are used in plant structure/function and return oxygen back into the atmosphere as a byproduct. Roughly half of the greenhouse effect is caused by CO2. Therefore, trees act as carbon sinks, alleviating the greenhouse effect.”

I guess it is no surprise that profit comes before the continuance of mankind on this planet. Already the Amazon rainforest has been cut by nearly a third thanks to illegal logging, cattle farming and agriculture, and it seems it will get worse. So few people seem to realize that we rely on trees to provide us with a breathable atmosphere.

In the last fifty years forests across the world have been decimated to produce more agricultural land, and it would seem that it is not over yet. Why do governments not understand that we need trees to provide us with breathable air? If this keeps up and huge forests such as the Amazon disappear and we will have no oxygen to keep us alive.

The problem is we are so ignorant of the basic facts of life that we only think of money and profit. This will surely lead us to the destruction of our planet and the end of human life on Earth.

When I was young we had woods and forests all across Britain, but now most of them have disappeared as farmers cut down the trees just to get a little more land on which to plant crops. It’s the same all over the world, with huge forests disappearing at a steady rate. Many of the forests across the world have been decimated to make way for agriculture.

It is time the human race woke up to the fact that without trees life will end on this planet of ours.

Already this year we have had temperatures so high and that has never happened before. Here in Spain we have had temperatures in the high forties. In the Middle East temperatures are reaching close to fifty degrees, again, never seen before. You can bet your life that temperatures will continue to rise year on year and it is all the fault of mankind.

Drought areas in America and other countries make it impossible to grow crops to feed us. Flooding in many parts of the world have caused chaos with people losing their lives and homes being destroyed. This cannot go on.

Say what you will, but we humans are to blame for this sorry mess, and if we continue to ignore the warnings it will be too late to correct the current problems.

Most of the contamination in our atmosphere comes from the traffic on our roads which are poisoning the atmosphere. It is time for world-wide governments to greatly reduce the number of cars on the roads and to make them cleaner. If they do not do this it could be the end of mankind on this planet.

Another great contributor to oxygen is the oceans, and we have successfully contaminated them with plastic. Massive areas of the world seas have seen the rise of plastic around the world and this is another contamination that is slowly destroying our world.

If mankind is to continue its existence on the planet we have to do something to clean up our world. Otherwise, in maybe a hundred years humans will cease to exist.

Do You Believe In Climate Change

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, Conservation, Environment, Europe, Health, News, Oceans, Toxic Waste with tags , , , , on 06/04/2017 by floroy1942

Right Or Wrong?

Climate change is a touchy subject these days and many people do not believe in it. But the facts speak for themselves when you consider the massive flooding of countries like Peru, Australia and New Zealand, India and Bangladesh among others. Also we have drastic droughts and storms over different parts of the world. These things were unheard of in the past.

The weather patterns of the world have changed drastically over the past thirty years with drought, floods, massive hurricanes and typhoons, and a rising sea level. Some deny that these problems are manmade and are just a natural cycle in our world. The truth is that it is all manmade, caused by the heavy pollution we are sending into the atmosphere.

It would be difficult to ignore the facts when you consider such disasters with so many people killed and the loss of their homes. To me the facts cannot be denied for we are heading into the worst disasters of our world.

The big question is why? Is it a natural cycle or due to mankind’s ignorance to the state of our world. The toxic levels of our atmosphere are steadily rising due to our careless attitude to the climate, and as we go on the situation will only get worse.

Since the turn of the twentieth century we have been steadily increasing the contamination of the world’s atmosphere. It is said that last year we exceeded the possibility of the Earth to regenerate the atmosphere by August, and for the rest of the year  we added more and more contamination with the Earth unable to handle it. Even our oceans are being contaminated at an alarming rate through various means. So from this you can conclude that the planet and the atmosphere is getting worse year on year. When is it likely to stop?

Mankind is heading for extinction if we keep this up and in perhaps a hundred years we will cease to exist, because we have poisoned our atmosphere to the extent where all life on the planet will cease to exist.

I know that many people will consider this to be a load of rubbish, but you have to consider the condition of our world today, and imagine what it will be like in a tens of  years time if we continue living as we do.

The biggest contaminators of our atmosphere are vehicles and factories that push out toxic fumes daily. With over a billion vehicles on the planet and an untold number of factories the situation will get worse year on year. Some countries may see in twenty of thirty years time people walking around with gas masks, for already in China people wear face masks to stop the pollution from entering their lungs. This will soon spread to the west in some cities if we do nothing.

Already places like London, Paris, and in particular cities in the Middle East are suffering from heavy pollution and you can bet your life it will spread. The sad thing is, mankind seems oblivious to the spread of air contamination, and you can bet your life it will come and bite us in the backside.

At the moment people are living up to their eighties, nineties and beyond but that will soon change as the pollution of our atmosphere extends. You can make all the excuses you like but it will not change things unless we do something about it. There are so many people who believe that climate change is a myth, but in time they will see the truth as we are forced into taking measures to protect our health. It is not too late to do something about it but in ten or twenty years time it will be.

Governments have to start drastically reducing the number of cars in the world, and ban diesel which is the worst polluter. Factories must start using fuel that does not contaminate the atmosphere so much, but first people must be aware of the danger they are in for this to work. We all rely on governments to do the right thing, but sadly this is not the case for corrupt politicians are everywhere and their one aim in life is to be as rich as possible.

It is time for the world to made aware of the danger we are in and for the people to do something about it.

Where Are We Headed?

Its the beginning of a new year, and if you think about it you have to wonder where the world is headed. 2016 was not a good year for many people across the globe, although we in the West have not suffered quite so much. Other parts of the world have seen a great deal of suffering with wars, terrorism, hunger and catastrophic bad weather. So what makes you think that 2017 will be any better.

Already western nations have seen the worst weather in decades, with floods, heavy snowfall and drought that have taken their toll on the people. Only a couple of months ago in Spain where I live, we saw massive flooding on the Costa Del Sol that is totally unheard of. Many areas of Europe and America have seen catastrophic drought and flooding, but in other parts of the world they have suffered even more.

One of the major topics during 2016 has of course been terrorist activity in many lands, including Europe. The sad thing is, it is a long way from being over. Almost every day there is a new outbreak of violence in country after country, the latest being Ivory Coast.

Beijing Smog

Another major problem is pollution in many areas of the world. You only have to look at the news and see the pollution in cities like Beijing in China among others, and it has recently been reported that the pollution in London is already over the limit, and we are only seven days into the new year. So you must ask, where is the world headed?

Unless humanity starts taking some firm measures to stop these things from happening it will end in complete chaos for mankind. It seems that no-one is taking any firm measures to combat these problems, not the United Nations or governments across the world.

On the question of terrorism and Islamic State the whole world should unite and put these people out of business, next they should do something about combating the pollution that is choking the world. Unless the governments of the world come together and do something about these problems there is no future for mankind on the planet.

ISIS Killing Children

If the nations of the world do make a united effort to put an end to the Muslim uprising, and all the other terrorist organizations, the world could return to peace. If they would agree on laws for example limiting one car to every family we could rapidly reduce the number of vehicles on the road from the more than a billion vehicles that are causing all this pollution. They should also make a concerted effort to help the poorer nations by giving them food to save those dying of hunger and helping poorer nations to care for their people.

The world is currently divided into rich nations and poor nations, but no-one is doing anything to even out the balance. Power is the cornerstone of modern living, and many people will do whatever it takes to maintain their postion in the world. They do not spare a single thought for the poorer nations, or the poor people of even their own country. Today its all about me, me, me!

All I can say is that if things do not change rapidly, mankind will will disappear into history within a few decades.
