GRETA AND CHILD EXPLOITATION! (says a crying adult)

To all of you who see Greta and rejoice for how she speaks so strongly in favor of the “cause”: Do you know what the legal meaning of child exploitation is?

Here is a short summary: It is exactly what is happening with Greta right now!

Do you understand how this kid has been put on the forefront for a race that has a specific agenda? No child should be exploited. A 16-year-old kid has to play, enjoy life, learn. Not to make hysterical speeches in front of an assembly of diplomats to “teach” us what the right thing is. Don’t you understand that Greta just repeats what she’s been told to repeat?

And one more thing: The mere use of Greta (because this is what it is: they are just using her) – of a child I must repeat – in such a situation shows the low level at which the debate has fallen. We are no longer talking with arguments. We talk to the emotions of others and we try to build guilt syndromes. And what can be better than a crying little kid?

If your house is on fire, will you listen to a little kid saying it to you or to an adult? Or worse: Will you hear the little kid more than the adult who warns you about the fire? Sorry but if that is the case, then you are stupid. (Maybe if I put a little kid to say this while crying it will sound much more impressive)

Let the kids out of this and out of any other discussion (I refer to cases where people bring their children to the gay parade etc).

Unconditionally and without reservations!

PS. I have written other articles (see “The hypocrisy of Ecology” for example) about climate and what is happening that few people sit down to read. This article is specifically for Greta and a call to end child exploitation. Not to discuss climate!

Small little insects… Making the ocean move… Modern science… Shrimps laughing…

Scientists have demonstrated how some of the smallest creatures in the ocean could have the same outsized impact under the waves – with swarms of marine organisms inadvertently producing powerful currents that mix and churn a turbulent undersea environment.

“Right now a lot of our ocean climate models don’t include the effect of animals, or if they do it’s as passive participants in the process”. Strength in numbers, it turns out, as swarms of the creatures migrate daily in vertical columns, feeding at the ocean surface by night, before retreating hundreds of metres deep by day.

“You have this massive migration vertically every day of literally trillions of organisms”, Dabiri told NPR. “As they start swimming upward, each of them kicks a little bit of fluid backward”. The team discovered the animals’ passing didn’t just distribute water in small, localised regions, but churned significant volumes of proxy ocean pretty much everywhere they went.

So far, these effects have only been demonstrated in the lab, but if the same thing is taking place out in the real world, biologists and oceanographers will need to rethink how marine life contributes to ocean turbulence – especially since the same thing could be happening with bigger animals, such as jellyfish, squid, fish, and even large mammals.

Ancient civilizations thought of the cosmos as something alive.

Then came Descartes, Galileo and modern science.

And we “discovered” the “objective” world of phenomena…

We suddenly “knew” we lived in a cold lifeless cosmos.

And we developed great science…

While shrimps were laughing at us…

The cosmos is still alive.

It always was.

It is just us who died.

Watch that shrimp you are cooking. It is not a shrimp.

It is the universe itself. Boiling with fierce power.

Just… add a pinch of salt.

Yes. Now it’s better.

Now come on.

Let’s eat my daughter…

Humans affecting the forest. Forest affecting humans.

Human biomass utilization reduces global carbon stocks in vegetation by 50%, implying that massive emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere have occurred over the past centuries and millennia. The contribution of forest management and livestock grazing on natural grasslands to global carbon losses is of similar magnitude as that of deforestation. Currently, these effects are underappreciated in existing global carbon models and assessments of the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from land-based production. Without full consideration of land management effects, global climate forecasts and calculations of the GHG effects of future bioenergy policies are error prone, seriously jeopardizing the robust evaluation of measures that would help achieving the 1,5°C target of the Paris Agreement. These are some of the result of a study headed by Karl-Heinz Erb from the Institute of Social Ecology, published in the scientific journal Nature on 20.12.2017. (1)

Scientists analyzing how we affect the forest.

But the forest has affected us a long time ago.

When we walked into the dark and we found our self.

When Midas chased Silenus only to discover what he didn’t want to discover.

Yes, we affect the forests today.

But only from afar. And only to destroy it.

Try to get into a forest and see for yourself.

The owls are not hollowing…

The birds are not singing…

You are deep into the forest alone.

But you know you are not…

The forest is changing you.

You were once part of the forest…

You will once be again…

Nature in Balance… A lesson we choose not to know.

In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew roared through the Caribbean as a near-worst-case Category 4 storm, with high winds that devastated Haiti and other countries. But when it made landfall in the United States a few days later, Matthew limped into South Carolina as a Category 1, bringing torrential rains and flooding but little else.

That storm was a prime example of what a new study suggests is a remarkable feature regarding Atlantic hurricanes and their impact: When climatic conditions favor a lot of hurricane activity, they also create a buffer zone that weakens the storms as they approach the coastal United States.

“It’s an incredibly lucky phenomenon”, said James Kossin, an atmospheric scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the author of the study, published in Nature, which looked at hurricane data from 1947 to 2015. “It’s given us a really nice barrier and decreased our threats”. (1)

How heartbreakingly sad.

Nature is always in Balance…

And yet we always see chance, luck and randomness everywhere…

Try to make people get out of the cave…

And they will laugh at you…

It is cozy there.

Ecology: For all the wrong reasons. [Nature runs faster and the need for philosophy]

Humans always try to catch up with nature…

Lake Champlain may be more susceptible to damage from climate change than was previously understood, researchers have found Therefore, they say, the rules created by the EPA to protect the lake may be inadequate to prevent algae blooms and water quality problems as the region gets hotter and wetter. (1)

Alberta’s rivers are the main source of water for agriculture in Canada’s Prairie provinces. But climate change and increased human interference mean that the flow of these headwaters is under threat. This could have major implications for Canadian gross domestic product, and even global food security. A study published in Hydrological Processes sheds light on sources of streamflow variability and change in Alberta’s headwaters that can affect irrigated agriculture in the Prairies. This provides the knowledge base to develop improved water resource management to effectively adapt to evolving river flow conditions. (2)

We want to improve water management due to changes in water flows. We do not want to cut down the reasons for which we use water. We want to revise the rules we have for protecting the lake’s ecosystem. We do not want to change the actual reasons which create changes to that system.

We want to be ecologists by controlling the environment. We want to bring balance by acting in the same very way (control-mania) which put the system off balance in the first place.

We learn nothing.

Because we cannot.

We have focused so much on trying to explaining (science) and doing things (technology), that we cannot actually sit down and listen (philosophy) or accept and know (religion).

Let the river flow.

Let the river die.

Let the rain pour down on you.

You are a small drop…

You are the ocean.
