I write these rants, not as a scientist or economist. I write them with the use of my own brain and what it can comprehend at the time. Surely I do not hold the answers to any problems but it is nice to throw them up and have people talk about them. To think for oneself is a must in a climate where we let too much come from corporate thinking.
I am calling it corporate thinking as it is thoughts brought along after research of a corporation or business. And that thought or idea is than projected on many people to spread the word. So we are all facing in one direction and do not want to look back again.
That is where a bit of my science etcetera comes in. I think we look to far forward all the time. We are always trying to solve or fix problems by creating new helpful machines. All we can think of is how we can make things easier and life longer. Make a machine to fix our mistakes or issues we have on this planet.
We are trying to cut down our CO2 and are creating ways to get rid of it or use it in another way. But in the same time our hunger for plastic products and other consumer products is growing. Soon as we can stop ourselves from wanting more and creating more we can maybe stop having so much CO2 getting in the air. Just a thought. We are always fixing what we broke or ruined. But we are fixing it with more creations.
Should we not go back to the source of the problem? Instead of repairing what we are causing with a creation. Again these are my assumption and maybe simple thinking. But to see sea gulls cut open and have stomachs full of plastic caps, pieces of bag or even lighters. We have to wonder if we are not going the wrong way with our plastic consumption. And need for even more.
That is than involving the economic side of things. Because let us face it. If we need or want less (commercials make you want more) factories have to be shut down. Prices go up of items when there are produced less. Simple economics. But those who think things will get cheaper should also know our natural resources do not last for much longer. And when resources go down the price goes up just the same.
So at this moment we are just keeping prices artificially low. But it is not working for our planet or our environment. It is very simple thinking. But that is because I am not a scientist or economy specialist.
We are the only species on this planet who create an artificial world we have to adapt to. We do not use nature we alter it and get used to our own creations. Instead of working with nature we work against it because we believe it does not hold anything for us other than resources.
And it is not too late to clean up our mess. Either we do it ourselves or Mother Nature will do it for us. She is already throwing more tsunamis and tornadoes our way. The number of earthquakes are slightly on the rise or getting bigger. New viruses are being born. Are we still going to fix them with innovations so we can still live. Curing new illnesses or build better buildings again. Or are we going to start respecting our planet and hope we can calm her down.
Just a few thoughts that came to mind this Monday Moaning Morning.
Why thank you 😀
My brother studies geography and he says there are people who think the earths population should be culled with viruses as the only way to save the earth! Extreme!!
I won’t go that far, but Mother earth has thrown different cases of viruses our way. earth or nature is all about balance. and we are pretty much screwing it up..
Out world has a way of keeping balance. but the more we tilt it the worst the counter will be from our mother. So to speak.
So many tangible dualities at work creating balance inside of chaos and it’s always hard to say if the things we have done have worsened or lessened our time in the universe. I sure don’t love all the creations that is for sure but some of them are kind of cool 🙂
Ooh as a gadget freak I do think some are cool, I do ask why we need such item?
It is a crazy world and good to sometimes stop and think about it. Their still isn’t a gadget out there to save us or our problems. that is still on us
