The Environment Part Two
If all the trees are gone. No life will exist. Our place in the world might be in jeopardy. Oxygen will be lost.
Care for the environment contrasted with our destroying it. What about a balance.
If the earth were only a few feet in diameter people would come from all over to marvel at it. To see the islands & rain…
If the earth were this small, people might appreciate it a bit more.
We can't live without it: air. And yet, one fifth of the world's population breathes air more poisonous than the World Health Organization recommends as healthy. The ozone layer is thin and getting worse. Its depletion can damage agriculture and marine life, and cause an epidemic of skin cancer. Transportation, industry and manufacturing are some of the main factors causing greenhouse gases to rise by one third since the industrial revolution. But there is much that each of us can do. If every US commuter carried just one more passenger, for example, air pollution would drop by 12 million pounds a year. Other options include using cleaner technologies and changing our energy and transportation habits.
Balance the harmony of creation. Stewardship
"Every part of this soil is sacred in the estimation of my people. Every hillside, every valley, every plain and grove, has been hallowed by some sad or happy event in days long vanished…Man did not make the web of life, he is just part of it. What he does to the web, he does to himself." - Chief Seattle, 1854.
What will we give the next generation. The resources preserved.
Overpopulation leading to starvation.
Over population will lead to disaster.
It is believed that now in 2006 one person dies every three seconds from starvation. We can expect that figure to increase as the world population goes up.
If Christians believe that God gave them responsibility to care for the world then they must be moved to do what is right. It cannot be right to stand by and see the world ignore its own people increase in population only to die from starvation and malnutrition. Or maybe the fact that so much of the physical world will be spoiled it will not matter that the fate of the inhabitants of the world will be.
If God was a caring being them people must be as well. This is the basic teaching of Christianity.So let us hope that humanity will stop millions of people dying slowly from starvation.
Safe technology or will we be swallowed up by our desire to advance… to our doom
Disposal of Rubbish
2. We create tons of rubbish. It has to go somewhere. We bury it in the earth. This produces gas.
What we do with our rubbish shows what sort of a society we are.
The gas emissions carbon monoxide
3. Gas (carbon Monoxide) All this gas together with the from cars goes into the atmosphere.
