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.

Acid!

I think the world is going mad, for we have so many acid attacks in Britain and its not going to end. Teens have been throwing acid in the face of young women, but why? A law has been introduced to make the selling of acid to young people, but it is not having an effect for they get it at home. Why would teens and young people throw acid into the face of someone they hardly know? It has become normal for young people to do this, but why?

Young people have been scarred for life by these idiots who don’t care what the effects are. If they suffered the same they would regret it for the rest of their lives. Some people have horrible scars on their face caused by these attacks, and they will live with it for the rest of their lives.

Who in their right mind would do such a thing, scarring someone for forever. It just doesn’t make sense. These animals should be locked up for a very long time but the trouble is, the police can’t do much about it. They don’t know who has done this horrible thing, and to track them down is difficult.

Britain is going crazy and it has to stop. But how will it end? the police must make a move to stop these attacks and put the perpetrators away for a long time for it will only get worse. I wonder how this got started and who started it. Young women are disfigured for life but what makes the attackers do this. Do they have something against them to make them do this or is it just a prank to disfigure someone for life.

Some can recover, but not all, especially if they are attacked in the face. If they are, some will go blind for the acid gets into the their eyes. It is a scandalous form of torture that many will live with for the rest of their lives. Disfigurement on the face will have a heartbreaking effect on the victims.

Some can have plastic surgery to remove the disfigurement but not all. They will have to live the rest of their lives with a face that is burned and horribly disfigured, and for what? The acid burns the skin and many do not have water nearby to wash away this horrible contamination.

I wish I knew what made youngsters do this, for it is a horrible way to attack someone. Every day we hear of people being attacked with acid and the police should be doing something about it. Stop and search of young teens should be introduced to find those that are holding acid in their clothes, and they should arrest them immediately. It is the only way to stop this barbarism.

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.

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.

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.

How On Earth Could This Happen?

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Insanity, Modern World, News, Oceans, Pacific, USA with tags , , , on 21/08/2017 by floroy1942

Nations search for 10 missing after US destroyer collision

                                                USS John S. McCain

How on earth could such a collision happen? It seems to me totally inconceivable that two ships could hit one another in this day and age. Twice now we have had American warships involved in a collision with other ships. First we had the USS Fitzgerald off Japan, and now another one, USS John S. McCain off Singapore.

The only thing I can think of is the crews must have been totally incompetent on both ships. They both have sophisticated radar and it should have been easy to avoid a collision. The captain’s of both ships have been held accountable, and so they should for it was sheer incompetence for them to have a collision.

                                                      USS Fitzgerald

They must have seen on radar that the tankers were heading on a collision course and the officer on the bridge should have taken avoiding action. It is inconceivable that in this day and age, with all the technology that the Navy has that they could have been involved in a collision at sea.

The collision cost the lives of sailors who were doing their job and this is a scandal. In my view, the captains of both ships should serve jail time, plus the people on the bridge at the time. To needlessly throw away the lives of sailors through sheer stupidity must be a criminal offence.

What To Do About The Weather

Posted in America, Britain, Canada, China, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Health, Modern World, News with tags , , , , on 14/08/2017 by floroy1942

In the last few years we have seen drastic weather changes all across the world. Flooding, drought, heat waves and huge storms have hit our planet as never before. These have all been caused by us humans, for we have contaminated the atmosphere as never before. This is all due to the massive amount of traffic on our roads, and factories that pump out carbon dioxide all of which poison the atmosphere. Instead of allowing the heat to dissipate in space it is trapped in our atmosphere by the pollution. This causes temperatures around the globe to rise as never before. All life on the planet is suffering because of this.

The trouble is the majority of people just don’t care about it, for if they did they would stop buying diesel engined cars for a start and begin reducing the amount of traffic on our roads. Some families have three and four cars, one for father, one for mother, and at least one for the grown-up children. They just do not see that so many cars on our roads are causing this atmospheric problem.

As we look into the future we see that electric cars may eventually take over. But the one problem with this is we do not have enough power stations across the world to carry this extra load. Already we are getting close to overloading our power stations, what with all the gadgets we own. So the introduction of electric cars will cause a total collapse of the power generation system. We have to find another way!

Image result for climate changeThe British government is trying to outlaw all diesel vehicles by 2040, but to me that is far too late. We must start taking action now! Even if we stop contaminating our atmosphere it will take tens of years, maybe hundreds before the world gets back to normal. In the meantime many hundreds of thousands will die from our poisonous atmosphere. Lung cancer is steadily on the rise, and they are people who do not smoke but live in heavily contaminated cities like London, Shanghai and Riyad. You only have to look at photo’s of these cities, and many more, to see the cloud of contamination that covers them.

If we do not start acting now mankind will be almost extinct on this planet, for our world, for the most part, will become unlivable. Would you really want to go about your daily business wearing a gas mask? No, I thought not!

The sad thing is, most people do not think of the future but are content to live their lives as they do, and to hell with the future. But what sort of life are we leaving our children and their children? We all love our children, but we have no thought about the situation we are leaving them. You may not have to go around wearing a gas mask but what if they do?

A quote: “According to experts, by 2100 weather-related disasters could affect two thirds of Europe’s population per year, with yearly deaths caused by extreme weather predicted to soar 50 times from 3,000 between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 between 2071 and 2100.” Currently people are living well into their eighties but that figure will drop like a stone in the years to come, and all because of the way we are polluting our atmosphere.

You may well read this and brush it off as nonsense because it doesn’t affect you, but there is no getting away from the problems we will face in the near future. Unless every single one of us starts to make changes in the way we live, we will see in years to come major problems for mankind. But it won’t affect us, it will affect your children and theirs.

 A quote: Lead scientist Dr Giovanni Forzieri, from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in Italy, said: “Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards. Unless global warming is curbed as a matter of urgency and appropriate measures are taken, about 350 million Europeans could be exposed to harmful climate extremes on an annual basis by the end of the century.”

Image result for climate changeIt is said by scientists that Spain will become a desert because of its lack of rain which is getting worse by the year. It is not the only country that will see such a future, but it could also apply to all Mediterranean countries too. Huge swathes of Africa will no longer be livable as the temperatures increase and the Sahara Desert will take over much of the continent. We are not only talking about Africa and Europe, but America will see much the same in its middle regions.

No matter how much warning we get from scientists the people brush it off as nonsense and that is dangerous. We have to do something to stop this climate change, and that means all of us!

Roy.
