Mother Earth is a sentient being. She breathes oxygen through her flora, she drinks water through her climatic cycles, and she eats through the infinite number of organisms involved in the decay of matter. In turn, she has given us everything we have ever needed for our own sustainability and well being.
Environmental health considers the relationship between our natural and man-made environments and obviously encompasses issues like pollution, renewable resources, and disease control.
We have the knowledge and technology today to reduce our carbon footprint by 90%. However, it will take a unified movement as consumers to put our dollars where the solution is.
Emergency Preparedness falls within our idea of what it means to be sustainable. Our ability to both navigate through as well as bounce back with disaster recovery skills can be one of the most important aspects of sustainability...Read more by clicking the link on the above title.
You know the joke- the cockroach will survive anything; most all other creatures will not.
Now we must consider the latest twist in pollutant compounds and how exposure to nanotechnology is affecting our already fragile eco-system.
Click through the link above to access the articles in the section which are hardly the main stream reports on pollution, toxins, and whether or not we will survive the growing toxicity of our planet.
Disease Control has a New WeaponThe same incredible discoveries in cloning and stem cell research have also created new breeds of bio engineered insects and pathogens. Justified as the latest fight to protect our crops and live stock, they are being released into our environment. Yes, let’s repeat that. Experiments and discoveries in gene splicing have developed advanced nano materials, including inorganic compounds, to design new ‘bugs’. They are specifically engineered to invade and destroy the cell of another organism. This latest technology is prevalent in both the medical and agricultural industry today. More to come.
This is all happening now.
We are not educated, let alone prepared for what ripples of change all this will create and there isn’t much time!
Entering here will take you into the some of the biggest issues standing in the face of our very human existence.
It’s not just about global warming any more.
