Lets not finish the history, please!

Lets not finish the history, please!

The fossil fuels are nonrenewable. They form over millions of years by natural processes. New ones can’t be produced in our lifetime. So, over an incredible long period of time, like in four hundred million years, the same amount of fossil fuels in the world today would form again, right? Not quite. It was only

An Existential Crisis

An Existential Crisis

  There is an issue in environmental education that is not usually discussed as much, but it is very important. I consider it to be the core of the crisis humanity is facing. The issue is population. Five hundred years ago, before the Global Era, the world population was just a few hundred million. Two

Green Grocery Stores

In my last blog I wrote about the Johnson family that produces zero waste by minimizing the use of wrappers that items come in. Everybody is trying to eliminate plastic. Sometimes, reusable cloth bags are promoted in grocery store. However, into that cloth bag goes an awful lot of plastic in which various grocery items

Healthy Cars

I have an idea on how to reduce fossil fuels. Instead of just fossil fuels directly powering our cars, or electric cars being repowered at designated stations, the cars can be partially powered by a generator which is spun by our feet. This car will be powered by gasoline of course, but if it can

How About Zero Waste?

In America, there is a family called the Johnson family, Bea and Scott Johnson, that throws out only a handful of trash after a long period of five months, while earlier on they used to fill a big garbage bag every week. If everybody in America started living like the Johnsons, then the environment will

less transportation, less carbon emission

Now that the important fossil fuels, which power our transportation, are running out, we must use them as little as possible. The most unnecessary use of them must first be stamped out, and then the next use, if possible. Transportation must be suppressed as much as possible until perhaps the development of renewable energy. If

Help Companies be Green

Help Companies be Green

Sometimes, a company that is harming the environment can do something to make its work safer for the environment. However, such measures cost more money and only help the environment, not the company. For example, BP oil spill could have been prevented if more expensive means were adopted to carry out the project. I have

Opportunities of Recession

Jan 27th, 2011 | By

There are many  environmental opportunities that arise out of recession. As we all read in environmental literature, businesses are responsible for environmental woe. They are let free to do whatever they want, and they can keep doing things like drilling oil and mining and polluting. America, the world’s major economic power, is heavily dependent on

Environmental Education to Promote Global Amity

Environmental Education to Promote Global Amity

We notice that children in the United States and Europe are often more concerned about the environment than their parents. Why is it so? If we ponder over the issue, we will find that environmental concern is a very recent phenomenon. Most adults of today who control society were not taught to be environmentally conscious

New World

Dec 2nd, 2010 | By

The worldwide fear of human activity slowly exhausting our natural resources and sickening our planet is very new. For seventy years, human beings have dealt with their fear of killing each other and of nuclear annihilations by agreeing to participate in collective security systems. The world is not yet showing similar cooperation to restrict human

Pest Control Without Environmental Poisoning

There is a movement in the United States to end the production and export of Compound 1080, (sodium fluoroacetate) one of the deadliest chemicals in the world used to kill pests and predators that eat livestock. According to Camella Fox, a wild life consultant, one teaspoon of 1080 can kill 100 human beings. Compound 1080
