Disturbed by the #Australianfires #Lewishamilton donates $500k to Australian fire service

lewishamilton-1578596790465

Reposted from @lewishamilton – It saddens me deeply to know that over 1 billion animals in Australia died a painful death, no way out, not their fault. My love of animals is no secret and I can’t help but grieve for the defenceless animals thought to have died so far, pushing certain species closer to extinction. I’m lucky enough to visit Australia often and I know first-hand how beautiful the country is. Keep fighting Australia. I’ve spent some time speaking to people in Australia who are working at the heart of this and I’m filled with admiration for everything they are doing.

I implore you to join me in thinking about the impact we are having on our planet. Let’s work together to make small changes, and encourage our family and friends to do the same, so we can help shift the direction we’re going in.

I’m donating $500K to support @wireswildliferescue @wwf_australia and the Rural Fire Services. If you are able and haven’t already, you can donate too. Every little helps.

from @lewishamilton – Focus on what you love doing. Set your sights and dreams high. Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t or you’re not good enough. You need to believe (if you really aren’t good at it then you need to be realistic too) nobody can do it for you, only help along the way but you are going to have to do the heavy lifting! Let’s set our sights higher for 2020, never backing down! I believe in you and so should you! #letsgo #believeinyourself

Reposted from @lewishamilton (@get_regrann) – Surfing into the new year, one of my favourite things to do. There is much to do, so much to see. Much work is ahead of us but I try to set my sights high on things which most people would say are impossible, envision it and work to manifest them. What are YOU going to do to make the difference for you this year? #believeinyourself – #regrann

In His Mercies, God sends rain to assist the fighters of #Australiafires

nowspacetime-1578479488396

Isn’t he God? And is there anything he can’t do? Well we are grateful for his change of heart, pity in humanity, and gift of rain.

Reposted from @nowspacetime – Nearly 200 fires are still burning across the entire country of Australia, with smoke spreading across thousands of miles — affecting places as far as New Zealand, where ash has turned glaciers yellow.

More than 15 million acres of land has been scorched — 7x the 2019 Amazon fires and 3x the 2018 California fires. The death toll has climbed to at least 24 people and more than 1,200 homes have been destroyed.

It’s estimated that 8000 koalas (one third of the koala population in New South Wales) have been killed –– a figure that is feared to be even higher as the fires continue. Due to their slow movement, koalas are more at risk as they’re unable to escape the flames.

These are the devastating effects of anthropogenic climate change. This is the slaughter of life, the destruction of nature and the loss of hope. Let’s make 2020 the year that we stand up for the climate. It’s time to speak up for the voiceless and take action for what is right.

Thankfully, conditions are beginning to ease as firefighters are gaining control over several dangerous fires. The awareness shared through social media has helped raise tens of millions of dollars, money which will help aid first responders and animal rescuers to do all they can to put an end to this nightmare.

tell me.

where did all the koa trees go?

where did the groves of warriors run to?

were they burned and cut down

were they sold and turned into paper?

were they written on and disguised as law?

tell me where did the kanaka go?

did they retreat into the mountains to reside on slopes?

did they get pushed away, forced to travel on foot when they only knew how to float?

did they get pushed down into the dirt where the koa trees once stood?

and did the koa and the kanaka melt together to hold each other through remembering how to be a warrior and a human and a poem.

Brazil to reject the £16m offered by world leaders to help tackle the Amazon wildfires #amazon #climatechange

leonardodicaprio-1566936634286

Contrary to what the world may have thought, Brazil is not infact going to desperately and freely accepted the money you all have contributed to help then save the Amazon from further incineration by wildfire. 

The Country thoughtful and considerate along side preserving  enough to be housing the world’s largest vegetation is faces with one of the most horrific event of their lives and they are rejecting H elp from the eodld intackling it? That’s true people, Brazil has expressed its intent to reject the £16m offered by world leaders to help tackle the wildfires engulfing the Amazon, claiming it should be spent on reforesting Europe rather than ‘colonialist practises’. The aid was agreed during emergency climate talks at the G7 summit over the weekend in a session that was skipped by Donald Trump.

Environmental groups dismissed the sum – equivalent to just £2.3m per G7 country – as ‘chump change’ that failed to address the causes of the fires.

Satellite data has recorded more than 41,000 fires in the Amazon region so far this year – more than half of those happened this month alone. So the Area being under such scrutiny by both the good and the bad, is now being suggested by its owners, to be replicated in one of the other sides of the world.

This is because the world needs balance between the poison and filters and this clearly can no longer be a task left only for the weakened and exhausted Amazon. Even though some believe that the fire was not entirely a natural disaster, as the region is trying to send a message across to the world. We have heard thag message and we will do our best. For the 3rd world countries, our natural environment is still intact, unlike the G7 Countries. #justsaying

This is the reason Amazon is burning and going to get worse — Washingtonpost

washingtonpost-1566500308510

 

Credit to from @washingtonpost  – The Amazon rainforest is home to some of the wettest land on Earth. So how is it currently ablaze? And why are the blazes growing? Scientists point to three main reasons – each the result of human activity:

—The first is deforestation, much of it illegal.

—Another spark is farming. More than three-quarters of deforestation in the Amazon is the result of ranching or soy production. Fire has become a standard tool for farmers to clear brush and help maintain their farm.

—The final main cause is droughts. These occur naturally, but scientists say climate change and deforestation are making them more frequent and sever.

All of these practices feed into one another. Read more on Washington post..

From Theshaderoom…

#Roommates, the world’s largest rainforest is currently ablaze with no end in sight. Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest is reportedly burning at the highest rate since the National Institute for Space Research began tracking it in 2013. Now, scientists worry this could be a major setback in the fight against climate change.

According to @cnn, the Amazon is often referred to as the earth’s lungs because it is responsible for the production of 20% of the oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere. There have been almost 730,000 fires in Brazil this year, with more than half in the Amazon region.

The rainforest is the largest rainforest on the planet, measured at almost half the size of the United States. According to reports, smoke from—click the link in our bio to read more! (📸: @ecohealthnyc)

HOT SUMMER: July 2019 becomes the hottest month ever recorded on EARTH — Experts

berniesanders-1566028714467

“The heat is on” now takes a new meaning after scientists have concluded that July now goes down in history as the hottest month.

The significance wasn’t infact felt, because we didn’t Hear people complain or even burn up, but record has shown that this is the truth.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), July 2019 is the hottest month ever recorded on earth.

Apparently the average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees above the average which is 60.4 degrees F. Breaking the record held by July of 2016 coincidentally. The most alarming part about all of this is that 9 of the 10 hottest Julys have happened since 2005 and the last 5 have happened in the last 5 years. Meaning every year it’s getting hotter and hotter.

As we all know, extreme heat isn’t good news. #balleralert

While Trump is in denial of all these happenings concerning global warming or climate change, he is frightening the sane occupants of the Unuted states, and impressing the weird ones, and the sane ones are not going to take it in silence.

Credit to from @berniesanders  – This is an emergency and we need to treat it like one.

I thought it was a pile of rodents at first sight of the movie dungeon, but this becomes clear as you stare on. It is just disgusting to the max to realise that it’s simply a moving pile of trash.

You cant even see the water pulling it, because everything is covered with disgustingly rotten dirt.

Climatechange: Leonardo Dicaprio speaks on the destruction caused by plastic waste.

leonardodicaprio-1552887995229

Reposted from @leonardodicaprio – #Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange:
This is Elisabetta Zavoli @elizavola taking over the @everydayclimatechange Instagram account this week and sharing my documentary work of the ‘Landfill midwife’ project. .
Some men, from Cikiwul village, catch up fishes in the highly polluted muddy waters that percolate from Bantar Gebang biggest dump zone. Banter Gebang landfill receives the waste of about 15 millions people living in Jakarta. Trash pickers need the litter to make a living and the Indonesian society needs trash pickers to recycle all possible materials that otherwise would be just discarded. .
Indonesia, is ranked the second largest plastic polluter in the world behind only China with reports showing that the country produces 187.2 million tonnes of plastic waste each year of which more than 1 million tons leaks into the ocean.
Recent studies discovered that as plastics decay, they emit traces of methane and ethylene, two powerful greenhouse gases, and the rate of emission increases with time. The emissions occur when plastic materials are exposed to ambient solar radiation, whether in water or in the air, but in air, emission rates are much higher. Results show that plastics represent a heretofore unrecognized source of climate-relevant trace gases that are expected to increase as more plastic is produced and accumulated in the environment. Polyethylene, used in shopping bags, is the most produced and discarded synthetic polymer globally and was found to be the most prolific emitter of methane and ethylene.
It’s estimated that over 8 billion tons of virgin plastic have been produced since 1950, making plastic one of the largest man-made materials on the planet, behind steel and cement. Of that volume, more than half was produced in the last 16 years, amid a global boom in single-use, disposable plastic. Current annual production levels are expected to double in the next 20 years.
