  1. I wanted to open a discussion about this. I remember seeing a documentary about the aftermath of Chernobyl in the exclusion zone, and the wildlife is thriving there after the nuclear disaster. You can read an article about this here Do Animals in Chernobyl’s Fallout Zone Glow? The unlikeliest wildlife sanctuary. http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/nuclear_power/2013/01/wildlife_in_chernobyl_debate_over_mutations_and_populations_of_plants_and.html What will happen, in the event that we, human beings, make the Earth uninhabitable for us and become extin
  2. I love George Carlin, he speaks some deep truths, so I wanted to share this video with you. I don't agree with some of the stuff he says, but he makes some good points. I like his point that it is not about saving the Planet, it's about saving ourselves. We, as a species, are endangered. We are endangering ourselves. The way we live on this Planet is not sustainable. I know it does not look like it right now, because there are 6 billion people and a growing population -- but in the big picture, the countdown has begun, our time is running out. We will make this planet uninhabitable
  3. Living in the UK, I used to throw away about 2 black binbags a week (just me and my girlfriend) Most rubbish is created by food packing at the supermarket. The packaging is getting silly. I know products will sell better in a flashy packaging, but 50 percent of my garbage is packaging. Maybe this is why there is more rubbish in developed countries. In less developed countries you just buy the stuff you need at the market, with no packaging. You can find a great article about this here http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2009/feb/17/recycling-supermarkets-packaging
  4. I suppose we never learn from the past mistakes ancient civilizations have made. Only now we literally have the power to destroy the planet. Science and technology have given us the means to destroy this planet. Things look pretty bleak. I really doubt that anyone is in control. Perhaps the politicians, but they will wake up only when it is too late. The way I see it, there will come a time when resources will become scarce, so there will be massive wars and population purges. The strong ones will survive. It's all in Darwin's survival of the fittest. The most technologically advanced
  5. Heonologist, you make a good point Maybe Sahara is just a bald patch on Earth's head :D :D If we compare the age of our planet with the age of a person, scientists claim the Planet is about 40 years old. Maybe it's just going bald in some places. Romans were also responsible for killing most lions in North Africa, and many other wild animals for that matter. They used to kill animals for the games at the Colloseum. This is an interesting article http://www.endangeredspecieshandbook.org/persecution_roman.php Simon Thank you for all the interesting links. So, is it possible that th
  6. I agree. The problem is not only overpopulation, the problem is greed. People who overconsume, who have a huge carbon footprint. Millionaires who have yachts and an insatiable greed. They are worse for the environment than overpopulation. Some Africans live on less than one dollar a day, Ethiopia is hardly overpopulated. It is overpopulated considering the scarce resources it has. That's why people are dying of hunger. A drought comes -- and there is no food, so people are dying. And the drought is caused by the pollution and exhaust fumes from the cars in the West. We are partly respo
  7. Soda is addictive, sugar in general is addictive. Sweets. chocolate have an addictive component. You get sugar cravings. It's been a few years since I hardly eat any sweets, and never drink any sugar soft-drinks. . I think the key to this is eating lots of fruits. Fruits are rich in natural sugar, and the difference is: a candy bar will give you a sugar high, and then a sugar low, followed by a craving - whereas if you eat 4-5 bananas, you get a natural high, without the low, you feel full of energy and you feel good and healthy. I think this is the key to kicking the soda habit - gett
  8. This is definitely a step in the right direction. I did not know the EU banned bee-harming pesticides. This is great news. Thanks for the info. Hopefully the US will follow suit, because without the bees, there is no pollination, and without pollination, there are no fruits. It is a massive scale disaster. I hope the US take notice. I saw a documentary about a region in China where they were forced to pollinate the fruit orchards by hand, because the bees had died out.
  9. I think animals are already starting to have rights. When you kill a pig, or a calf, you have to do it in a "humane" fashion. At least in the EU, there are rules and regulations. It's not much, but it's a start. Who knows, maybe in a hundred years' time, they will have more rights, gradually. However, considering the overpopulation on this planet - it would be impossible to feed the entire population on non-animal food. There simply isn't enough food for 6 billion people. And by the way, why the discrimination? Plants are living beings too. If you hug a tree, you can feel the tree resp
  10. This is topic is not really about Sahara, but mostly about what is happening right now in the Amazon. Massive deforestation is going on in order to provide paper for countless newspapers and magazines, stationery, furniture in the West. The Western countries are willing to pay for all the wood, and the poor Amazon countries are willing to sell their resources for a quick buck, without even thinking of future generations. If this goes on recklessly, what is now the Amazon forest could one day become the Amazon desert. What do you think? I would like to discuss this aspect also. Do you t
  11. I would like to start a topic about the Sahara desert. Did you know that only 6000 years ago, this immense area was not a desert, it was a thriving forest. Sahara became the desert we know today about 2700 years ago. Some scientists say that it was because of climate change, or a change in the axis of the Earth. But I am not convinced. Why didn't this climate change take place in South America as well? Why didn't the Amazon jungle become a desert. Scientist forget that 6000 years ago, the Earth was populated. The Egyptians were a thriving civilization, building incredible pyramids
  12. People deny climate change, because they like their SUVs and their technological comforts. They don't want to know how bad things really are. They only think about their Ipods, Macs and their McDonalds chicken nuggets. In my opinion, these people are in denial. And how can anyone say that pollution is nature at work? If the humans self-destruct as a species and turn the Earth into an uninhabitable place for them - you cannot call it "Nature at work". Even if Global Warming is part of a natural cycle, there is still the pollution, the destruction of the ozone layer, the poisoning of
  13. The thing is, most of the overpopulation is in relatively poor, undeveloped countries. In countries like UK there has been a decrease of the original population (excluding the newcomers, the immigrants), most people have one or two children. Overpopulation happens in countries like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China. For instance, India alone now accommodates 1.27 billion people. It's mind-blowing. I agree that overpopulation is a huge problem - but even if you reduce population in the West, the poorer countries will reproduce more, and those people will just emigrate to richer countr
