                                             Immigrants Who Demonstrate

Europe is being flooded with migrants over the past few years, and it doesn’t stop. There are many migrants that are looking for a job in Europe, but many are in camps and the they grow bigger. Paris is overflowing with migrants and they are camping all over the place, the same goes for Germany, Italy and Spain and it has to stop.

Why don’t we stop them coming in? Spain is taking migrants from the sea and number is getting greater. We cannot allow the economic migrants to enter Europe, for they are not at war with the terrorists and they look for jobs.

Europe is getting overcrowded with immigrants and there are not enough jobs for the majority of them. They live off the handouts given by the governments, and they do not care. Most say they are from Syria but that is a lie, for many come from India, Pakistan and Africa. The real migrants from Syria are in need of help, but that is different.

There are so many economic migrants that outnumber the Syrians and that is a shambles. The government must track down these migrants and throw them out of Europe, and send them back to their country. We cannot look after them all, and they should be only the migrants from Syria.

If we accept these people they will live in Britain until the war is over. They cannot give citizenship in the U.K. for they will have to be sent back when the war is over. Already Britain is overcrowded with the economic migrants and this should not happen. We have to take care of our own people.

Britain is becoming a disaster zone with a shortage of money and jobs and it will get worse. When all these immigrants start making trouble in the U.K. it will be a powder keg and we will see riots in the streets. We already have a few riots by the teenagers and Muslims because they cannot find a job. We should give jobs to British people and not the migrants. For they are taking jobs away from the natives of England, for they do not want a huge salary and they do not want a salary as high as Englishman. Firms are happy to be given migrants work because they do not pay as high as the Englishman. This has to stop, for the country will in a uproar when in years to come.

All over the world the temperatures are getting hotter, and the there seems no end to it. In Europe the weather is climbing, and it will rise in August. When winter comes there will be cold and snow everywhere and the we will be up to our eyeballs in snow.

The weather is changing and I predict it will the heat will be higher next year. People are dying from the heat all over the world and it is getting worse. In winter there will be many more deaths as the cold grips certain countries.

The number of cars on the roads is getting to be bigger and bigger and we have to stop this. These cars are effecting the weather and we have to reduce the cars on the roads. Some people have four cars for the sons and daughters, and this is effecting the traffic on the road. This has to stop.

In twenty years time we will have electric cars on the road, but that is a long time away. In the meantime the pollution is getting worse by the minute, and we will be suffering with the congestion of the atmosphere. Already there is contamination in the air and people breath it in. We have already seen many people die from lung cancer and this will get worse.

I am glad I am seventy-five and I will maybe see eighty before I die, but the young folk will suffer in the long run. We have to do something about it by reducing the cars on the roads.

North And South Korea

Iran With Nuclear Capability?

Will It Come To This! We Hope Not!

After many years of conflict between North and South Korea we have reached an understanding between the two countries. They are now in talks to end the conflict, and it seems it is going well. Kim Jong-Un and his counterpart Moon Jae-In are talking about ending the rivalry between them. It is a momentous occasion that the two countries are talking.

The people in North Korea are ignorant  of the fact that these talks are taking place, but in South Korea it is being greeted with joy, as is the rest of the world. Trump has expressed his desire to talk with the North Korean leader sometime later this year, and we must wait and see how this develops.

Currently the talks between Moon Jae-In and Kim Jong-Un are going very well and we, hopefully, we will see the end of

tensions between the two countries. Kim Jong-Un has promised he will do away with all the nuclear weapons he has developed, and we must wait and see if this comes true.

Later this year Trump will have a meeting with Kim Jong-Un, and it is hoped this all goes well. For North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons will a milestone for the world, for Kim Jong-Un has already threatened America with a nuclear attack, and he has missiles that will reach the United States.

If this does not go well we could see a war between North Korea and the USA, and North Korea would be flattened. This will have a major effect on the rest of the world for the radioactivity will spread across the whole globe. This will have a devastating effect on peoples lives, and we may see the end of humanity on this planet due the spreading of the radioactivity.

Let us all hope that the meetings between South Korea, the USA and North Korea all go well.

Weather Changes

As It Used To Be

I remember when I was a boy in England the weather was a lot different to today. We had some snow in Winter, but not a lot, and Spring came with the trees and plants blossoming all over the place. We went for a walk in the forests to see the wild flowers. When Summer came we had sunshine for most months as the temperatures rose to their middle twenties. In Autumn the trees went from green to red and brown as they shed their leaves in preparation for winter.

We have never seen weather like this in the beginning of Spring with floods, snow in some parts of the world, and Summers so hot we are can barely stand the temperatures. Now all that has changed over the years as the contamination of the atmosphere gets worse as years go by. 

The woods and forests in England are all but gone and this is changing the climate. Farmers have cut down the trees that are giving us oxygen to get extra land to grow crops. It’s a tragedy. In all parts of the world forests are being hacked down to give us more farmland and it is destroying the planet.

The amount of vehicles on our roads are slowly clogging up the atmosphere, but no-one takes any notice. Governments are not taking this seriously! In a few years we will have electric cars and lorries rolling across our countries, but will this solve the problem? I doubt it! It may take 100 years to get rid of the poisonous atmosphere, but will we still be around on this planet. I do not know what the future brings, but it will certainly change our lives.

Currently the oceans are full of plastic and that is destroying the fish that some countries feed on. There is a plan to clear plastic from the oceans but that will take years and years, and all the while people abandon plastic on beaches which end up in the the sea. There is a movement to ban plastic for all time and make it reusable. But how long will that take, and it will still end up in the oceans.

Currently the oceans are clogged with plastic all across the globe, and if we are not careful it will be the end of us all.

The Weather

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, China, England, European Union, Germany, Modern World, News, Russia with tags , , , , on 09/03/2018 by floroy1942

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.

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.

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?

2

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.

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.

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.

France Leads The Way By Turning Out The Lights

Posted in America, Britain, Environment, Modern World, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 02/02/2013 by floroy1942
Shanghai At Night

Shanghai At Night

According to reports, France has taken a major step towards saving the planet without even realizing it. The French government have apparently just passed a law that forces shops and office blocks to turn out their lights at night, quoting “light pollution” and “electricity savings”.

Las Vegas

Las Vegas

The law states that all of these buildings must turn off all lights within one hour of the last person leaving, or by 01.00hrs every night and the projected savings in electricity are staggering. It has been calculated that this one measure will save sufficient energy to power 750,000 homes for an entire year! The actual figure is two terawatt/hours of electricity a year. When you consider the implications of this, it is an enormous saving of power at a time when demand is growing at an ever-increasing rate year on year.

World Energy Consumption On The Rise

World Energy Consumption On The Rise

As we have more and more gadgets in the house requiring this precious resource, plus of course the introduction of electric cars, the energy demands of today’s society will grow to such an extent that the power companies will be unable to fill demand in the future. This in effect, will necessitate a mass building programme of extra power stations which will need more of the Earth’s resources to feed them.

London

London

When you look at the night skyline of  all the major cities in the world they are a mass of light from glaring advertisements to whole skyscrapers lit from top to bottom. If you think about it, this is wasting power on an unprecedented scale the like of which is incomparable. We are using coal, natural gas and nuclear power to satisfy our increasing needs, and this is before millions of people ‘go green’ and buy an electric car to ‘save the planet’.

Power Guzzler!

Power Guzzler!

There are many people who are against nuclear power, but what they do not realize is that as demand increases we will need many more power stations to keep up with demand. If they are all gas or coal powered we will hasten the day when the whole planet will have the problem currently inflicted upon the people of Beijing, China. A poisoned atmosphere!

Sydney Australia

Sydney Australia

For this reason it is wise for us all to look at ways to reduce our power consumption, and the step that France has taken is the right way to go. It only remains to be seen how soon all countries follow this lead and impose the same law. When you think about it, I am sure you will see that it makes sense.
