FISH STOCKS, FRESH WATER, AIR QUALITY, SUPERFOODS PLANNING IN THE YEAR 2050
The same things we need now, just that by then, the quality of all these things is uncertain, unless we change our piggish ways of consuming too much, too quickly.
Solutions: 22 scientists warned last week of rapid and unpredictable environmental changes. (We are already experiencing these).
The conservative camp of brains believes the answer is for humans to do less of everything. (That’s not what the government tells people on a benefit in NZ). The radical camp believes technology and human ingenuity will prevent catastrophe. (If the corporate nature of greed doesn’t stuff that up).
Technology and innovation has already saved us from plagues, low crop yields, water shortages, reliance on fossil fuels and more. The report via the BBC also sounds a bit fishy. One suggestion (that is probably highly likely) is: Conservatives argue that we should reduce consumption, waste, population, fertiliser use, pesticides, fishing, etc., and in this way reduce our species’ influence back to being just another part of the biosphere, rather than its driving force.
To read in full, conserve here.
What this means: Countries that can grow our own grass, crops, regenerate safe water supplies, produce abundant food supplies all year round, replenish fisheries supplies around coastlines of minerals rich soils, are winning. We need to negotiate stronger in trade deals ahead. Abundance is the guide to provide our shared future.
Major lifestyle changes need to happen in many parts of the world.
