MELT DOWN - There is no point declaring a climate emergency and continuing to build conventional housing like there is no tomorrow. That is what is happening in Britain at the moment - a Great British foul up!
Human activities are releasing nearly 10 Gegatons of Carbon (about 36 Billion tons of CO2) into the atmosphere every year, driving atmospheric CO2 concentrations to 400 parts per million (ppm) from their pre-industrial levels of 280 ppm. This increase in CO2 and other greenhouse gases concentrations traps additional energy in the earth's climate system.
If we don't act now to curb climate change we can kiss goodbye to the planet as we know it. That is what the scientific community has been warning us about for years. But, our leaders are still not listening.
This has prompted yet more protests in London in August and September 2020 from Extinction Rebellion - and who can blame them after COP-OUT25. Here's hoping for something better in November 2021. But that is a long way off where we have just 10 years to try and reverse the trend. it will be 9 years remaining after that event - and we all know how slow to react the UN is!
SUPER FAST SOLAR & WIND - We are presently undertaking a study on the possibility of crossing the English Channel faster than today's diesel powered ferries - using only energy from nature - and a very efficient hullform. The Elizabeth Swann (above) could become the queen of the high seas.
Politicians are more worried about economic growth, but continuous growth is suicide when you only have one planet. We simply cannot continue to grow on such as small planet. We reached the safe limits for exploitation of Earth many years ago. Hence, the rise in global temperature that continues unchecked by lunatic empire builders.
We crossed the line! We must do all in our power to retrace our footsteps to reduce atmospheric and ocean temperatures. We need more trees, zero carbon cars, zero carbon shipping and sustainable homes - meaning economic restructuring of planet earth and politicians who understand about good housekeeping. No more promises of Wealth creation. We need Health creation. The Health of the Planet, for healthy humans.
ARCHINAUTE - Is a Zero Emission Wind Turbine Powered Motorship. Using a wind turbine as the main power source for a ship allows the design of zero emission mechanically propelled vessels as efficient as present internal combustion engine powered diesels, provided we aim at reasonable cruising speeds. Turbines supplemented by solar arrays offer an unlimited range of operation, full autonomy, without harbor infrastructure improvements.
HOW DO WE MAKE THE PLANET SAFE AGAIN ?
The fact is that because we have left it so long, it may be too late to recover. Why? We may have reached the point of no return with so many species lost. WE ARE NEXT.
This is because our growing population needs feeding and to earn a living in a modern world that uses fossil fuels for just about everything - with several layers of financial burdens and then more taxes - adding to your carbon footprint. Even agriculture relies on diesel and fertilizers derived from fossil fuels.
[RIGHT] SEPTEMBER FRIDAY 19th 2019 - As if anyone could be in any doubt, the whole world wants action on climate change. The strength of feeling is resonating around the world demanding that world leaders start doing something. [LEFT] TOO RIGHT - A British jury found Roger Hallam not guilty of vandalism where global warming is at such a high rate now that citizens have the right to peacefully protest for action. In an information rich world many of the civilians who might not have known about the climate disaster unfolding, are only too aware of the failings of those they put faith in. Their anger at being let down is understandable, leading to mass protests in our cities and even children going on strike once they realize that we are doomed as things stand. Go Roger!
Since 1995 members of the United Nations have been playing politics rather than taking binding action to prevent warming of the planet, in the full knowledge that human use of fossil fuels was to blame. From local councils to international councils, the rot is set in. Our politicians are responsible for the deaths of millions of animals and hundreds of thousands of humans in not acting to control greenhouse gas build up.
EMERGENCY ACTIONS: SIX STEPS TOWARD A COOLER PLANET
Six suggested steps toward reversing global warming include building carbon neutral housing, driving clean cars and changing to renewable energy. The hardest change to make is political, concerning policies and policy making to ensure that local authorities stop empire building, thus increasing their carbon footprints. If all local councils act the same, which they do, they are to blame for the planet getting hotter. National leaders simply must take control of their countries, not allow the wishes of the people and future generations to be ignored.
