This was Wychwood Forest some years ago, now it is dying. There is no longer any green grass & the wildlife is suffering. The trees are literally dieing from the heat & the lack of rain. On top of this we are now threatened by catastrophic bushfires. All this is caused by human made climate change.
Long before the
cattle industry, the world was populated with large numbers of ruminants, but
the world seemed to have no issues with methane. American plains Africa and
other continents had millions of buffalo, so how & when did the problem
The world was a different place back then, large grassy plains
managed by the indigenous peoples, huge wide spread forests, & healthy
oceans. All these were producing oxygen & absorbing methane/Co2.
Then came the industrial revolution & the invasion of America
& Australia. The industrial revolution marks the time steam engines were
invented & coal was being burnt for energy. The invasions killed off many
of the indigenous peoples & changed their lifestyles for ever. The grassy
plains were no longer being managed to produce more green grass for the
wildlife, now it was overrun by cattle & sheep. The forests were being
logged for timber & destroyed & cleared to make more land for
settlement & farming. The oceans lasted a little longer, but eventually
humans also managed to pollute & contaminate with radio active waste, oil
spills, garbage disposal, & single use plastics.
The herds of herbivores were mostly killed off & replaced with
cattle & sheep in far greater numbers. The world was/is no longer green
& the carbon dioxide levels rose & the oxygen levels in the oceans
reduced. Now we have human made climate change, which is further destroying our
forests through creating catastrophic conditions for bushfires. We have the
internal combustion engine churning out Co2 into the atmosphere. We have coal
burning electricity plants churning out more Co2 into our atmosphere. The
planet is warming which is melting the ice & the permafrost. Melting ice
has created black water which absorbs more heat. Melting permafrost is
releasing more carbon into the atmosphere & releasing long buried pathogens
Our world can no long keep up with the massive production of Co2 from
livestock & other sources. The planet will survive when most, if not all
humans have died due to climate change.
The world's people, the Australian people, need to act now. If they do not take control of this human made climate change situation, then we may all quite possibly die in a mass extinction event!!! This is NOT paranoia, this is NOT sensationalising, this is NOT bullshit! This is REAL! If the people wait for someone else to fix this, they are going to find themselves trying to survive TEOTWAWKI, & after that possibly a mass extinction!
I have done all I can through popular media channels to warn the population about climate change global warming, apart from preparing my own home in the forest off grid to help my children & grandchildren survive, there is nothing else that I can do. You NEED to take control of your lives, you NEED to take control of climate change by stopping the burning of fossil fuels, & by stopping the logging & destruction of our native forests & woodlands. Your future & your children's future depends on it!!!
