Humans Change the World ! “Climate Change” What does it mean to me? What is it caused by?

The Industrial Revolution brought us Climate Change. After the Industrial Revolution we became a society of “instant gratification”. The industrial revolution made our life very easy and at the same time is destroying our planet. From the mining for commodities like: minerals, metals and rocks, let’s not forget all the underground nuclear explosions and the pumping of oil, our planet is looking more and more like “Swiss Cheese” and now it is letting us know through: earthquakes, volcanoes and the increase of Co2. The time to change is here and now!

The Industrial Revolution was a process of change from an agrarian, handicraft economy to one dominated by industry and machine manufacturing. It began in England in the 18th century. Technological changes included the use of iron and steel, new energy sources, the invention of new machines that increased production (including the steam engine and the spinning jenny), the development of the factory system, and important developments in transportation and communication(including the railroad and the telegraph). These included a wider distribution of wealth and increased international trade; political changes resulting from the shift in economic power; sweeping social changes that included the rise of working-class movements, the development of managerial hierarchies to oversee the division of labor, and the emergence of new patterns of authority; and struggles against externalities such as industrial pollution and urban crowding.

Now it’s given to our generation and the ones after to fix the damages and to turn to a healing phase to the “Green Revolution”.

GreenDustries found eight different ways our world has been changed because of our direct human actions on the planet. From Hurricanes to Volcanic eruptions, Flooding, Desertification, Wild Fires, Tsunamis, Tornadoes, Earthquakes and more.

“For decades, our culture has struggled with two addictions, to oil and nuclear. It’s pretty clear by now that we can’t kick one of those habits without kicking the other. Yet, for many of us, perhaps most of us, thinking about the future conjures up images a post-apocalyptic dystopia stripped of nature. It’s a dangerous fixation. Think how children and young people must feel today, growing up in a time when so many adults seem to accept, with a shrug, only darkness ahead. The key question here is: How do we change our vision of the future? Where do we start?

Here’s one suggestion: reconceive environmentalism and sustainability – help them evolve into a larger movement that can touch every part of society”. Says the Nature Conservancy.

At the heart of Greenpeace’s report ‘Left in the dust”: Areva’s radioactive legacy in the desert towns of Niger’ is the human cost of nuclear power. If we are going to embrace nuclear power then, every time you flick a switch and nuclear-powered light bulb comes on, you must accept the suffering of the likes of the people who live around Areva’s uranium mines in Niger (and those people are by no means the only people to suffer at the hands of the nuclear industry). This is what the nuclear industry wants us to forget. According to them, nuclear power is just a matter ‘safe’, ‘clean’ and ‘reliable’ reactors producing ‘low carbon’ electricity. They don’t want to think about where the fuel for those reactors come from, about the contamination. They don’t want you to think about the people of Niger trapped at the bottom of the United Nation’s Human Development Index.

It is best to not use fossil fuels. They are not renewable; they can’t really be made again. We can save fossil fuels by conserving energy. Fossil fuels take millions of years to make. We are using up the fuels that were made more than 300 million years ago before the time of the dinosaurs. Once they are gone they are gone. The priority for people who run oil companies is to maximize profits. We know their words and actions are largely guided by a commitment to shareholders, and so we consider them in that context.

There is a growing sense of national urgency about the role of energy in long-term World’s economic vitality, national security, and climate change. The U.S. has the resources to combat this energy challenge; the dilemma is to identify which solutions will be right and how to address the massive technological and social changes to come.

The National Academies Summit on America’s Energy Future: Summary of a Meeting chronicles that 2-day summit and serves as a current and far-reaching foundation for examining energy policy. The summit is part of the ongoing project “America’s Energy Future: Technology Opportunities, Risks, and Tradeoffs,” which will produce a series of reports providing authoritative estimates and analysis of the current and future supply of and demand for energy; new and existing technologies to meet those demands; their associated impacts; and their projected costs. Says: AMERICA ENERGY FUTURE.

In our next blogs we will talk about all the changes in nature we mentioned earlier. From Hurricanes to Volcanic eruptions, Earthquakes, Flooding, Desertification, Wild Fires, Tsunamis, Tornadoes, Oceans Acidification, Melting of the Poles and water rising. We will also discuss the fact that all these technologies from the “Industrial Revolution” are very replaceable with technologies existing today which are clean, green and “human and earth friendly”. All it takes is a little courage for everyone to change their habits and embrace a safe, healthy future with new up to date energy and technologies.

Change is one of the most difficult things to accomplish for a human being. “Fear of change is subtle. It operates under the radar convincing you that it’s there to protect you and keep you safe. In reality, fear of change is one of the most common reasons for resistance to change because it stops you taking any action at all. Anxiety stops us taking action in our lives and makes us resist change by stirring up fears of what is not known. Often certainty is more comfortable than uncertainty. The anxiety underlying our fear of change leads to other more specific fears that support a resistance to change”. Says the Change-Management-Coach.com

Next week we will discuss how underground explosions from nuclear energy influences the tectonic plates on earth, causes eruptions of volcanos and the creation of tsunamis.

Let’s have our eyes wide open and not put our head in the sand and let things go as they are.

Let’s be courageous and embrace the change: Let’s bring a change for ourselves, our children, grand children and all the generations after.
