The Earth Day 2015
Doth glance from heaven to earth,
From earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.
Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Mother Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother, but SHE can live without humans.
We carry Mother Earth within us. She is not outside of us. Mother Earth is not just environment. We should honour Mother Earth with gratitude; otherwise our spirituality may become hypocritical.
All European tradition, Marxism included, has conspired the natural order of all things. Mother Earth has been abused, the powers have been abused, and this cannot go forever. We can not have equilibrium in this world with the current inequality and destruction of Mother Earth. Capitalism is what is causing this problem and it needs to end. No theory can alter that simple fact, Mother Earth will retaliate, the whole environment will retaliate, the whole environment will retaliate, and the abuses and the abusers will be eliminated.
Mother earth needs us to keep our covenant. We will do this at our home, at our work place, and we will commit to our descendants to work hard to protect this land and water for them. Whether you have feet, wings, fins, or roots, we are all in it together.
Mother Earth is changing and it is happening at alarming rate. People around the world are suffering from poverty and malnutrition while others fear about the demand for natural resources and how much time we have before they run out. Population growth is a huge matter in countries such as India and China, where as in Australia depletion of ozone layer worry.
The biggest challenge to the face of the Mother Earth is CLIMATE CHANGE. The BIG CAUSE of climate change is GLOBAL WARMING from the GREENHOUSE GASES and CARBON EMISSIONS. Human impact is causing more Greenhouse gases to be produced by burning fossil fuels and deforestation. This causes them to get trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere making the temperature rise. It is now a fact that the world is getting hotter and Earth is the hottest it has been in at least 400 years, and possibly even the last 2,000 years. Studies show that the global surface temperature has increase by approximately 0.3-0.6° C over the last century. This may seem like a small difference but it has big consequences.
These temperatures will continue to increase and by the end of the 21st century average global temperatures may increase by 1.4-5.8° C. Besides resulting in more hot days, many scientists believe an increase in temperatures may lead to changes in precipitation and weather patterns. Ocean waters will become warmer and this may result in more intense and frequent tropical storms and hurricanes. The number of hurricanes has almost doubled in the last 30 years and will continue to increase with global warming.
Sea levels are also expected to increase by 0.09-0.88 meter in the next century, mainly from melting glaciers and rising seawaters. Most of the world’s population lives on or near the coasts. Global sea levels could rise by more the 20 feet with the loss of shelf ice in Greenland and Antarctica, devastating coastal areas worldwide. If the polar ice cap were to melt then sea levels worldwide would increase by 20ft, Shangahai home to 40 million people would be underwater, the Bay of Bengal, Kolkata, India home to 60 million people would be completely gone. Think of the impact.
THE MOTHER EARTH WILL BE DESTROYED IF SOMETHING IS NOT DONE.
