Title: Are we doing enough to save the planet?
Post by: Impulseboy on July 25, 2018, 03:34:57 PM
While infrastructure and technology keeps advancing, our natural resources suffer. Sure there are people who tries to save our planet by diving into the water and collecting trash, or encouraging anyone to recycle or stop using plastic. But is it enough? If it is, then why are we still experiencing climate change? Could this be the start of the destruction of our planet?

The planet doesn't need saving.  It's a rock that's been here long before plastic and will be here long after all the plastic is degraded into dust.  And through out the earth's entire existence the climate has been changing.  Stop the HUMAN ego trip.  You aren't that important, on a geological scale of time.

What you really mean is ' Can we save the human population'. As has been mentioned, nature will compensate for any changes that occur, but that may be detrimental to the human race. So to answer the spirit of the question, we are doing the wrong things. For example, the politicians are pushing the idea of electric cars to give them increased control over motorists, but electric cars just export pollution, they don't decrease it.  Innovations like the opposed piston diesel engine are far more constructive.

Another useful idea is to stop chopping down trees to feed electricity generation plants.

Stop fucking for 10 or 20 years. Population will reduce to manageable levels.

Other option warp drive build it and find some empty planets.

Last option terraform mars.


We all know number one is not happening.
Number two will not happen unless we are visited by aliens and they lay all the cards on the table.
Number three will happen but most likely only save a small percent of people when a crash happens here on earth

Earth is indeed a rock, but it is our duty to protect it and respect it. Also, it is not just the use of plastic that is harming the planet, its a lot of things. Do you mean that this does not concern you at all?

Can we save the human population? I dont think so, but you are right. We are doing things wrong. Despite the technology rising and advancing, its the environment that suffers. Sadly, some of us are in denial about whatever is happening.

Exactly. Like I said, it is sad that a lot of people just do not care about what is going on right now. Climate change, all of those things. It is real and we are responsible for the earth's deterioration but not many of us care to do something about it.

Quite the contrary, I care very much.  I'm fond of our planet, its natural beauty, the woods, the jungles, and all if its animals.  I want very much to preserve the quality life we enjoy.  I reuse, recycle, compost, plant trees, grow vegetables, and I just purchase a solar panel system to install on my roof.

But semantics matter.  We don't get to save the planet anymore than we get to destroy it. We can boil the ocean, fill the atmosphere with CO2, we may all suffocate and die, we may obliterate all vegetation, but the planet will still be here, and it's climate will continue to change.

It is really hard for "us" to save the planet, the real ones damaging it are big corporations destroying it, yes we can help the case by not using plastic and what not, but the change must come from above.

I we were to take it literally, then the planet does not need saving-- we're just like fleas living in a large organism. But as I believe that you mean saving the planet's organic nature and environment, then no, no we are not. It's quite sad that while there are lots of people who are doing their parts to save the environment, there are like a million more that either damage the environment more or just don't care.

However, even then, we should not stop trying to save the Earth. There is no planet B (for now at least), and id we want to survive as a species, we should start protecting the environment more.

Some people are doing a lot. More than enough for one person, but the vast majority of people are not going to care about the effects that we have on the planet. They rather watch tv, relax and play their video games on the Here Now. (Little play on my name.) Can't really blame many because they're just so distracted by their life struggles.

I remember a few years ago being in a political forum, and one of the topics was a discussion about a yearly event where people are encouraged to save on electricity for that one day, to reduce and make more people aware of pollution. Something to that effect.

The majority of the people there were really annoyed by the concept, and in retaliation they were purposefully going to run all their lights, TVs, and appliances that wastes the most electricity as possible.

So what does that tell you?

First one; contraception plus sex education, but it will be hard. A large percentage of human population still consult with their religious law. Solution? Genocide.

Last one is impossible. The gravity on mars is not suitable for humans. Venus is a better option.

"In the long term, permanent settlements could be made in the form of cities designed to float at about fifty kilometer altitude in the atmosphere of Venus. The advantages of the Venus atmosphere over other proposed space settlement locations includes an abundance of atmospheric volatiles, sufficient for life support, benign temperature and pressure, shielding from cosmic and solar-flare radiation, plentiful solar energy, and nearby access to the rocky (silicate) surface materials."

There are plenty organizations that are very much committed in helping environmental issues, most of them study about the threats, but if most of the peoole are not doing the same things, it will probably affect nothing in restoring our environment, we shoul be doing something in our little own ways which will result as a domino effect that in the long run will help sustain our resources for the future generations to still see the true beauty of our world.

The point I was trying to make to the OP is that semantics matter.  We get way to much hyperbole in our news and media today.  Every body is a "chicken little."  The end is nigh.  The funniest thing, the OP sounded off in the thread I started about Mars, stating his fear that we'll destroy that planet too...  What the Fuck is there to destroy on mars?  The atmosphere is already full of CO2, there are no oceans, plants, animals...

It's the mob mentality.  Some one hears a word used to describe something he's unhappy with, and the brain dead lemmings repeat it until it becomes "truth."

I am a conservationist.  I love nature.  I hunt, back-pack, and mountain bike for fun.  I compost everything I can for my home garden.  I try hard to conserve electricity.  I do as much as I possibly can to preserve the environment.  But when people get on their "We're destroying the Plant" hype I just cringe.  That's only going to hurt conservation efforts if you cannot separate the rational from the emotional.

Some of them are not even thinking that there is "climate change" and meanwhile some of them are thinking "earth is flat". yeah, the world is on a path to destruction through human activity causing "Rapid Resource Depletion" and "Heavy Environmental Pollution" which has exceeded Earth's threshold capacity.

I happen to disagree with this. But I think many people like to blame people that aren't harming the world because they know themselves are the ones responsible... I think we can treat the world better, but there needs to be some coherent strategy that everyone agrees on.

I agree. Some of us dont feel responsible for what is going on in our planet so those environmental causes may be useless if none or so little of us participate. For example, the cause to stop using plastic. A lot of companies and people have urged other people to stop using single use plastic, but are we doing it? They are little things but even a little will come along way than nothing.

No, we're doing enough to ruin the planet.

Only a small group of people is doing something to achieve the opposite effect (relative to the entire population of the Earth). The same can be said about the reduction of the population - while the population of some countries is reducing, the rest of them are returning everything to its places.

However, the planet has the necessary means to independently regulate its state. Therefore, the only ones who need salvation are people.

NO WE ARE NOT!!

But here a solution to this, Poseidon Foundation a non-profit organisation committed to offsetting carbon footprints emissions using Stellar blockchain to implement trace-ability and transparency in our business model. Our mission is to empowers everyone, individuals, corporates, and governments, to participate in climate action in a novel way

Carbon Market has huge potential growth, currently worth £10 billion, experts suggest it will reach 185 billion in 2030, the main issue is that this market has high entry level.

Poseidon Foundation solves that issue by generating a new channel of demand through retailers. In fact customers are able to be notified of amount of emissions and are able to donate respective monetary value.

We already achieved great parterships in less than a year, our first pilot project with Ben & Jerry's flagship store in central London, which received a lot positive attention from press.

Also partnership with BAC MONO, first car manufacturer to go climate "positive, and with the government of Malta announced last week.

Last partnership was announced yesterday and it is with Liverpool city, first city to go climate "positive" by 2020

This is going to attract interest and also extremely help our cause to save precious forests and  trees, and  enable everyone to participate in climate "positive" actions.

No, we are not doing enough because mitigation policies are not rightly directed. Global prosperity  comes at a huge expense of the natural environment. Ironically, poverty remains one of the root causes of environmental degradation globally. From the dwindling Amazon forest in South America to the expanding Sahara desert in Africa and the disappearing rain forests of central and western Africa, all are traceable to over exploitation by impoverished peasant populations struggling to make a living. We will still not be doing enough until global poverty is tackle head-on and reduced to the barest minimum particularly in Latin America and Africa.

If recycling and making sure I throw trash in its proper place is not a start to try to be a good citizen then I do not know what is. It is not much, but if we only try to do something, even a small one, then it will make a difference.

The truth is, the planet is in a poorer state than people realize, there are several issues mounting that are not being properly addressed at the individual, corporate and governmental levels. A brief list of challenges that we face now, or will face shortly;

1. Greenhouse gas emissions
2. Pollution of the oceans
3. Extinction of natural wildlife
4. The energy crisis
5. The increasing scarcity of many natural resources
6. Overpopulation (possibly a non-issue if the rest are resolved)

In reality, everybody knows to some extent that their actions damage the environment or at least to some small part, make the future a little worse for everyone. However, people are selfish, they don't care about what makes the world better and hence the world continues along its current path towards oblivion. However, there are feasible solutions for all of the above, the only thing missing is the corporate or national will to achieve these. For example, here in the UK there was legislation passed to ban all combustion engine vehicles by 2040, which in my opinion is too little too late.

Governments are taking handouts from the corporations (or sponsorships) which gives them favorable treatment. If the world were truly looking for a solution, fossil fuel based power plants and vehicles would be outlawed within a decade or two, and there would be hefty fees for polluting the oceans and environment. Unfortunately, that's not the world we live in :(

I have to agree with that. In a few years, we are going to ran out of food if we do not take care of our environment. There are oceans running out of fishes and other marine life, and a lot more are filled with trash. Segregating trash into their proper bins and eliminating the use of plastic, as well as recycling helps, but it is not enough. Sometimes, I wonder if all of us will ever get to do something to save our planet.

I think we are doing more to destruct it. And the good things we do, don’t compensate the harm. Our planet’s forests, oceans and land soak up billions of tonnes of carbon that causes a climate change. Temperatures keep rising and soon, we will not be able to control the earth’s equilibrium. We can avoid the sad scenario but it's going to take a fundamental re-adjustment of our relationship with the planet. We need a total re-orientation of human values, equity, behaviour and technologies. We are going to have to get very busy with planting trees, protecting forests, working out how to block the Sun's rays and developing machines to suck carbon out of the air.
And, we should also think of “green mining”: revolutioniziong the energy efficiency, minimizing energy consumption, reusing waste energy etc

You are right. If we start doing something to reverse the effects of global warming, it might alleviate the damage that we caused our planet. However, it might be too late already. Even if we all try to plant a treat everyday, it is still likely that the world will keep falling down, taking us all with it in the near future.

Not true. Electric cars use 50%-70% less energy than gasoline powered cars. To illustrate, consider that a gallon of gasoline contains about 30 kWh of energy. A typical car can go 20-30 miles on a gallon of gasoline. A hybrid might go 50 miles. A Tesla will go 100 miles.

Furthermore, the energy used by electric cars can be generated from non-polluting renewable sources.

As long we still produce pollution, garbage, and burning. in other countries it might be good, garbage is already in the system, but in other countries? developing countries that may still lack knowledge about the dangers of throwing garbage, and most importantly, get used to maintaining cleanliness from an early age. including getting used to maintaining health as well, because if we always choose healthy foods, maybe snack bins will be very little at home. including cigarettes and so on. yes that's just my opinion, cause i see it

I too would agree with this, I believe the "save the planet" process has to start at a personal
level. With all the recent updates and information that are more likely accessible now, there is
plenty of reason to get into it at home and the community. It's a losing battle if we don't
encourage awareness, there is so much more we can do to make things better in our planet.

Based on what I read earlier on some news that the ozone layer is healing itself that is a good news but I think the greatest problem in this world that we need to solve is overpopulation, especially in the third world countries even like the poor families even though they are poor they breed like rabbits seven children and above and there's nothing the government can do about that I would take India as an example "In India, 80 % of total plastic consumption is discarded as waste and official statistics say the country generates 25, 940 tonnes of plastic waste daily. At least 40% of this waste is uncollected" we are killing this planet slowly.

How about smart cars like hands-free and self-driving cars. Do you think they are better than typical cars? Or are they worse because even though they have advanced features they have automatic transmission engines which means that they use more gasoline?

No, I don't.
I am not doing much for saving our planet, but I try to do more and more. It is not a simple ways to do, as we know that the population pf human in any country is increasing significantly year to year. There are many ways taken and done by government to keep and decrease the growth population of human. Those all done is to save our planet because the growth population has huge impact to our planet.

I try begin from  my self and environment. I plant many trees in my home and recycle trash become a useful thing. The most important is keeping our environment clean and healthy.

If we are willing to save the planet we must also consider the food that we are eating. one example of that is many people still eating Oreo's by patronizing it we are indirectly killing the orangutans and the palm trees. people who concern about the planet must check everything that we consume or use including soap, clothing, food, and gadget's some of them contains the ingredient which pollutes our planet.

What do we do to ignore them, saving planet is a huge mission to us but many of us dont care, because all they want is the benefits for themselves. Thats the problem we are facing on, we like to save planet but we can't do it, we keep trying but the technologies advance and Factories created, and most of the trash goes to the ocean, cleaning ocean is not close enough to save planet, Billions of trash are in the ocean, and only certain countries use trash to create energy.

We are not doing enough to save our planet. We are doing something, but we are not doing enough. Imagine, you throw 1 plastic bottle into the ocean and you think to yourself, “it’s only one bottle”. But what if that’s everyone’s logic? One bottle could easily turn into hundreds, thousands and even billions. Where I am currently at, it keeps flooding and when it subsides, there are a lot of trash left. So I don’t think we are doing enough to save our planet. We should always remember that one act, even the smallest one, can make a big impact.

No, but instead we are doing enough to kill the planet. Yes, there are a lot of programs, environmental talks, and etc. But that does really help to repair the damage we already did? No, In my own perspective these things that we do like recycling, collecting trash and etc., now are just prevention (still this could be something). The damage that this planet had taken is simply not repairable.

and Somehow I don't believe in some of these environmental organizations since they are just decoys. Those who are behind it maybe one of the great contributors to these damages. This is some a plan to hide the destructive outcome of there projects and to divert the attention to the good side.

The human being condemns himself with his way of "Evolve". Maybe many work on how to maintain the planet, but I bet that many more people are not interested in the least to save it. So fuck

As time goes by the advancement of technology really helps the world to make things easier. The time is so fast that everything that we do are all instant. But in this kind of development our planet sacrifices.. The nature was really harmed  because people are keep on cutting trees, excavate mountains for industrial purposes. The air and sea are polluted. Yes, our planet is wounded because of the people who are in focus on the growth of technology.

I agree. Our continuous pursuit of our own resources for our own personal reasons harm the environment. How do you suggest we turn all these around to prevent the worst of the effects of climate change from happening?

Be a politician/president, make new regulations that forced each people to plant 1 tree every week, and if they don't want to do it, burn their house. Sounds good.

For it to be enough something like at least 70% of humanity has to be concision and willing to do something about it. That's not the case, the vast majority of people do not care, and so the efforts of a couple will not be enough. What will happen when the few that do something about it die, and not enough younger people replace them?

In a sense it reminds me of investing. Put all your eggs into one basket, win 3 times, but if you lose the 4th time, it's too late and you lose everything. Eventually it will be too late and everything will be lost.

While infrastructure and technology keeps advancing, our natural resources suffer. Sure there are people who tries to save our planet by diving into the water and collecting trash, or encouraging anyone to recycle or stop using plastic. But is it enough? If it is, then why are we still experiencing climate change? Could this be the start of the destruction of our planet?
I personally believe that humans would die long before many of the plants, insects and animals die. With the exception of a total nuclear catastrophe. So chemicals breed bacteria and create all sorts of imbalances in our atmosphere which lead to mold and other issues. Couple that with radiation constantly being leaked into our ocean and our sky. Also factor in massive massive overpopulation and then at some point there is a resource imbalance. Chances are it will create a chain reaction. Hunger is always followed by disease. Not to mention what the militaries of our world could do to humans and the earth. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of time. Already people have disorders of all sorts that didn't exist even 50 years ago. Our bodies cannot evolve fast enough to keep up with the toxins. Now the question is will some humans survive? I say it depends on how bad the air and soil is and if it's continuing to pollute like Fukushima. There will be a few but will they sustain? Especially if there is still petrol to fight over even though Tesla proved we don't need it as there is free energy all around.

No of course not at all. As we can see, day by day our environment has been continuing to be polluted and also our resources continuing to be limited. We all knew also that there are few people only concern in this issue. If we are helping each other then maybe it is enough but this thing might not possible.

Any changes starts with ourselves. Just like what ghandi said "be the change you wish to see in the world" this line is very powerful. I live up my life in that.

I admit, planet Earth is getting older and older. the balance of nature with technology is farther away. and without life technology will also be silent. so it's better and I think someone has started to protect our natural ecosystem.
tree, animal, water, soil.
and I am still lucky to live in a country that is still a lot of free nature. ;)

Trust me with the current technology humans can't destroy Earth and let alone can save it. Even a Mars size object collision can't destroy Earth. Only humans and other lifeforms would be destroyed. Some bacteria would even survive on this collision.

You worry about pollution? Without humans those most polluted river in the world would be crystal clear in less than 200 years. All plastics  would be gone in 200 years time too. Most metals would rust. In 1000 years without human those cities would become Forrest. Humans don't need do anything to save this planet. All we need to do be gone and Our planet can repair itself.

I think it will never been enough, even though currently many companies are using environmentally friendly waste management and many technologies that use renewable resources, only a small part of them care about the environment, most of them don't care, just think about profits

No we are certainly developing and improving ourselves more day by day but we are not following the concept of sustainable development and without it being in practice we are putting our planet in great danger which no science , no war , no superhero can solve . So taking the responsibility to save my planet I urge you all to take as many precautions as you can take to save the earth and it's natural resources.
