Silence of Disbelief; at Christmas time ‘Shower of Gifts’ swap for the ‘Future of Children’, that is a Greek Gift!


A Pyrrhic victory for Parents and Grandparents, now Childrens pay over the odds. 

So, you think an Island 2000km away from any continent is ‘paradise’?
Forest of Peace say:

Please don’t throw anything into the sea.

Important!

This video is about an island in the ocean at 2000 km from any other coast line. (Nobody lives, only birds)

This film is subjected to age restriction and  not suitable for children and minors under the age of 18. And You will not believe your eyes!

Humans are part of the same nature they destroy. Even if your concern is about humans only, then you definitely need to protect the seas, forests and skies as well, as else there will be no more humans left. We are not above these birds, we all are part of the same circle of life and killing one part will impact the other.

Humans Have Finally Ruined the Ocean

No one knows for sure but scientists think over six million tons of marine debris may be entering our ocean every year. One of the reasons Project AWARE is collecting marine debris data from divers is to help build a clear picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life. With this knowledge, we can make more effective decisions when it comes to waste management policies.

Marine debris comes from many land and ocean sources. Check out the infographic below and follow The Ugly Journey of our Trash to learn how different kinds of debris threaten marine life.

The Ugly Journey Of Our Trash

Team-Vice: I’m not one of those guys who corners folks at parties to rant at them about biodiesel or calls people “fucking idiots” for being skeptical about global warming. But I should also point out that I’m not one of those Andrew Dice Clay “Fuck the whales” types either.

The problem with all the bravado on both sides of the ecology debate is that nobody really knows what they’re talking about. Trying to form opinions on climate change, overpopulation, and peak oil hinges on ginormous leaps of faith based around tiny statistical deviances that even the scientists studying them have a hard time understanding. It gets so convoluted with all the yelling and the politics that sometimes you just want something huge and incontrovertibly awful to come along for everybody to agree on. Something you can show anyone a picture of and go, “See? We’re fucked.” Read more at vice

TOXIC: GARBAGE ISLAND

The garbage patch is located at one of the most remote points on earth. It takes a solid week of sailing just to get there. Considering how torturous the average daylong car trip gets, you can well imagine the kind of zap job that seven days on a 50-foot boat will do to your brain. You lose sight of land the first day, then you stop seeing other ships, then you stop seeing anything at all except for endless waves and occasionally a seabird, which, after days of nothing but water, becomes as exciting as spotting a UFO. Right at the point where you’ve come up with a separate song for every bird in the ship’s guidebook and have begun integrating them into a full seabird opera, you start seeing the trash.

Unbelievable, just look at the consequences!

Researchers quantify toxic ocean conditions during major extinction

Oxygen in the atmosphere and ocean rose dramatically about 600 million years ago, coinciding with the first proliferation of animal life. Since then, numerous short-lived biotic events — typically marked by significant climatic perturbations — took place when oxygen concentrations in the ocean dipped episodically.

The most studied and extensive of these events occurred 93.9 million years ago. By looking at the chemistry of rocks deposited during that time period, specifically coupled carbon and sulfur isotope data, a research team led by University of California, Riverside biogeochemists reports that oxygen-free and hydrogen sulfide-rich waters extended across roughly five percent of the global ocean during this major climatic perturbation — far more than the modern ocean’s 0.1 percent but much less than previous estimates for this event.

The research suggests that previous estimates of oxygen-free and hydrogen sulfide-rich conditions, or “euxinia,” were too high. Nevertheless, the limited and localized euxinia were still sufficiently widespread to have dramatic effect on the entire ocean’s chemistry and thus biological activity.
