BECAUSE YOU….. Indiscriminately cut forests for paper, wood, medicines, lac,rubber. Perform repeated nuclear test to fight with your brother nations. Use refrigerators, AC’s, cars to travel in luxury. Dig mines to get coal and precious metals. Use plastic products to enjoy your life.
….and gift us High level of Carbon Dioxide in air which leads to leaf drop. High concentration of nitrogen dioxide which retards OUR photosynthetic activity. Acid rain that washes a number of essential minerals from the soil and results in retarded growth.
more gifts … More amount of CFC which causes depletion of ozone layer. Disturbed rainfall cycle because of less trees and main cause of floods and droughts. Resulting in increased global temperatures. Alter the world's habitats
AS YOU…………. You eat non vegetarian food. Kill us for skin, hide, horns and teeth. Use us to carry your load. Train us to perform circus and acrobats etc.
What if we reciprocate? Your scientist believe that if the temperature is increased by 3-5 degrees Celsius, the number of people potentially exposed to malaria could increase from 45% to 60% of the world's population. This could lead to an extra 50-80 million cases of malaria a year (BBC News, 1997). Your Scientists believe that deserts would become hotter, and desertification would extend and become harder to reverse.
What if we reciprocate? Increased frequencies of heat waves; more variable precipitation patterns compromising the supply of freshwater, higher risks of water-borne, air borne and insect borne diseases a rise in coastal flooding due to rising sea levels.
Sequestration, or the long-term trapping of carbon dioxide before it enters the atmosphere, is an intermediate step along the way, but is not a solution in and of itself. Carbon dioxide can be sequestered as a gas by pumping it underground or into the ocean, or it can be sequestered by plants - The global carbon budget of plants can be changed to sequester a greater amount of CO2 from the atmosphere, but so far we have been doing the opposite - cutting and burning forests for instance has released vast amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, and poor agriculture has resulted in CO2 being released from the soil. TAKE CARE of CARBON DIOXIDE LEVEL….
Renewable energy including energy from wind, solar, wave, bio fuels, etc., which substitutes directly for fossil fuels and eliminates CO2 emissions entirely. YOU CAN USE
