Dal punto di vista scientifico potremmo limitarci a discutere del feedback positivo ghiaccio-albedo che hanno luogo al Polo Nord, oggi possiamo a tutti gli effetti affiancare idealmente a questi ultimi anche dei feedback positivi di natura totalmente diversa, ovvero geopolitica. Certo è che chiamarli “positivi” è una gran bella beffa. Ma procedendo per parallelismi con la definizione scientifica di feedback positivo, possiamo dire che bruciare per decenni idrocarburi ha fatto si che il fenomeno del riscaldamento globale continuasse a crescere a ritmi incessanti, sciogliendo interi blocchi di ghiaccio marino, con le problematiche connesse all’amplificazione artica. Cosa sta accadendo adesso? L’oro nero sta riaffiorando proprio in quelle zone che per anni sono state considerate intoccabili e, per questo motivo, tutt’oggi sconosciute per molti aspetti. In questo consiste il triste paradosso: proprio lì dove il pianeta piange di più le conseguenze del Global Warming riaffiora il veleno che le ha causate. Tuttavia, l’uomo è ancora tristemente “assetato di idrocarburi”, e la corsa all’oro polare da parte di Cina, Russia e Stati Uniti ci conferma che l’inversione di tendenza verso un’economia sostenibile è ancora tristemente lenta e ostacolata. A ciò si associano anche altri interessi commerciali e militari che vedono l’Artico nuova terra di conquista da parte delle superpotenze mondiali, le stesse che stanno portando avanti questo modello antropogenico di sfruttamento del pianeta. E noi, cosa possiamo fare di fronte a tutto questo? Osserviamo ciò che accade e facciamone esperienza, come suggerisce il metodo scientifico, poi però passiamo all’azione: scendiamo in campo e prendiamo posizione. Dissociamoci da ciò che sta accadendo e torniamo a guardare il cielo con occhi diversi.

Certo non dovremmo fermarci alle valutazioni meteorologiche, prese singolarmente, ma guardare un po’ oltre e chiederci cosa sta cambiando a livello climatico. I dati scientifici in questo caso parlano chiaro: si stima che le attività umane abbiano causato un aumento medio della temperatura terrestre di circa 1,0 ° C al di sopra dei livelli preindustriali, in un range che va da 0,8 °C a 1,2 °C. Ciò, come ben sappiamo, sta causando il progressivo scioglimento dei ghiacciai artici e distruggendo l’equilibrio globale di interi ecosistemi. Uno scenario terribile che si accompagna, sembrerebbe, a una presa di coscienza da parte del popolo italiano, che per l’81% del suo totale, secondo le statistiche, giudica il Climate Change un problema di primaria importanza. Ma non è abbastanza: quando questa presa di coscienza diventerà una presa di posizione? Ciò a cui stiamo assistendo infatti è ben diverso da ciò che ci aspetteremmo da una società responsabile. Le politiche energetiche ed economiche a livello mondiale sono ancora troppo incentrate sull’uso dei combustibili fossili e gli interessi delle grandi potenze continuano a convergere in quella direzione. C’è di più: la causa iniziale, ovvero l’incuria dell’uomo verso il pianeta che lo ospita, permettendogli la sopravvivenza, ha creato qualcosa che esalta ancor di più la causa stessa. L’Artico è il perfetto scenario dove tutto ciò, purtroppo, ha luogo.

Il feedback positivo di una politica di sfruttamento: la corsa all’oro polare. Il segno tangibile dell’avvelenamento del nostro pianeta per mano dell’uomo e del peggioramento delle condizioni climatiche è ormai sotto il naso di tutti, o forse sarebbe meglio dire, sopra il naso di ciascuno di noi: basta guardare il cielo per accorgerci di non riuscire più ad apprezzarne il suo azzurro intenso a causa dell’inquinamento che coinvolge le nostre città. Il metodo scientifico non è solo qualcosa che si studia sui libri; l’uomo crede davvero a qualcosa quando la prova e la sperimenta in prima persona, solo allora inizia a persuadersene. E così, soltanto sperimentando estati terribilmente calde, osservando la scomparsa delle stagioni in alcune parti del pianeta, nuvole che non promettono pioggia per mesi, succedute da alluvioni improvvise, e poi nuovamente ondate di calore anomale, tocchiamo con mano il dato scientifico di un pianeta ammalato che chiede aiuto.

Happy Sustainable Saturday! I opened up a new conditioner bar this morning and decided to share a more recent way Brian and I have gone #zeroplasticwaste in the shower! Most people only think of plastic pollution in the kitchen, but think about all the plastic shampoo, conditioner and body wash containers you have used thus far. I have tried out several zero waste face wash, body wash, shampoo and conditioner products this past year. Here are my favorites! Top blue bar: This is from @lushcosmetics ! We use it for our face and body! I love Lush because I can bring my own bag and pick different soaps every time with no packaging! Bottom two bars: This is our shampoo and conditioner from @ethiqueworld ! Of all the conditioner bars I’ve tried theirs is the best! Leaves my hair feeling so silky smooth. Plus the company uses limited biodegradable packaging. . . . . . . #plasticpollution #plasticfree #zerowaste #plastic #ocean #environment #ecofriendly #pollution #recycle #nature #noplastic #sustainable #sustainability #plasticwaste #savetheplanet #gogreen #saynotoplastic #eco #sustainableliving #reuse #zerowasteliving #sea #beachcleanup #savetheocean #singleuseplastic #earth #plasticfreeliving #planetorplastic

How does this make you feel? 🌎 The way I see it, we all owe it to each other and our children to examine how we do things and change. I want my kids and their kids to have a planet to love. ❤ We are by no means perfect and make mistakes regarding our waste all the time, but the first step is acknowledging the problem and wanting to change it. 🌱 In our current world that focuses on our differences, take a moment to realize what unites us and how you can make a change. #bethechange #loveourplanet at Halifax, Nova Scotia

This week we will keep sharing the amazing work of the German based photographer Madhumita Nandi. The following collection is called "BLINDING CORRIDORS" India generates 150 million tonnes of waste in a day. With no environmental friendly processing for the waste, the garbage is extremely hazardous, heaped together at landfills usually in the city’s outskirts, with scavengers often including young children working in unsafe conditions. Over 46 million Indians are exposed to contaminated water. India has the highest number of people forced to live with contaminated water. Around 60 % Indians do not have access to safe and private toilets. The pollution, the dust, the filth, the contamination of our cities - it's staring us in our faces. No matter how much we look away, how much we try to turn a blind eye, it's screaming for our attention.We continue to look away, continue to ignore, and neglect our cities that are falling apart. Wake up, before the last of our cities that are home to us crumble apart. We have to stop normalising disaster and raise the flag before it’s too late.

Today is #worldwhaleday 🐳 so please take a spare moment to think about whales, their polluted ocean habitat, and how they are sadly still hunted. These are smart and majestic animals. I love all sorts of #seacreatures and have always had a great #respect for the #ocean 🌊 so this is a different kind of post to my usual stuff but I hope you guys don't mind. #world #whaleday #worldwhaleday2019 #worldwhaledays #whales #whale #savetheoceans #savethewhales #stopwhalehunting #think #thinkaboutit #thinkaboutwhales #whalewatching #cetaceans #cetacean #seamammal #seamammals #marinemammals #marinemammal #oceans #pollution #habitat #sea #sealife

The fashion industry in general usually gets overlooked by us consumers for the impacts it has on our world, for some reason we don't even link clothes to the environment, but they are inextricably connected in a major way. This is a piece that is aimed at simply informing anyone interested in the true cost in both resources and labour this fast fix fashion culture in having on our world. So what is the problem and what can we do about it more importantly at really no cost to us? Link in bio if you're interested. Excerpt: 'The fashion industry consumes a great deal of other precious resources. To make a single pair of denim jeans, 10,000 litres of water is needed to first grow the cotton required for the jeans, and this is before any downstream production. For comparison, it would roughly take a human ten years to drink 10,000 litres of water; no, let’s rephrase that - it would roughly take a human 10 years to drink one pair of jeans. A consequence of this is roughly 20% of global wastewater is produced from the fashion industry.' Hope it's useful #Breathe at Dublin, Ireland

These kids at the #climatechange protest are doing a great job of fighting for change. We want the same for our kids. We want them to have greenery and less pollution at the school. Our school breaches legal limits at peak times while the kids are at school. We want change! Stop driving to school, stop idling. Help us to get a better, greener playground. @mayorofhackney @mayorofldn #FridaysForFuture #YouthStrike4Climate #Youth4Climate #WhateverItTakes #community #greenqueensbridge #pollution #idling

I Can’t See You Through These Garbage Clouds. Orange. If you are just tuning in, I’m suspending discard in clear cloud-shaped resin to raise awareness of our disregard for environmental health, within our bodies, within our immediate environments, and across the globe. We can help simply by using our voices and changing our habits. I’m using my mind and voice to explore the terrible, lazy, trashy ways that have become the societal norm. Garbled garbage-vision bad. Clean clarity good. .

Pangolins are the world’s most heavily trafficked wild mammals. The demand for pangolins comes mostly from China and Vietnam, where their scales are used in traditional medicine and their flesh is considered a delicacy. Pangolin scales are made up of keratin - the same as human fingernails and hair. But in traditional medicine they are believed to cure arthritis, boost male virility and promote breastfeeding in mothers. please share this post with your followers and also tag people who need to see this powerful picture ! . .

Repost @worIth -- Thanks @mitmedialab -- 🍃☀️🤖 Scientists create a semi-sentient #cyborg houseplant that moves towards light. #Elowan, the robot-plant hybrid, is driven with a plant's natural signals. The plant is connected to the machine, merging its own electrochemical signals, while responding to environmental factors naturally occurring, such as change of lights, with a robotic extension that drives it towards light. The project unveiled last December at MIT Media Lab is being claimed by the designer team as an example of part-organic, part-artificial entities that may become more common in the future. This way, the scientists led by Harpreet Sareen hope to turn plants into #biohybrids that power, monitor, and converge with their technological surroundings. One of the topics that motivate the research is how learning about the capabilities in nature can power our future new #interactiondevices. Under his own current project called #CyborgBotany, the team studies not only plants in food crops but plants in some Asian cultures used as things like bridges, also. The team's vision for this research is that plants could become monitoring platforms where they could supervise #waterquality, #toxicity, or #pollution, and then we don’t have to deploy artificial #sensors. >> https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/elowan-is-a-cyborg-plant-that-can-move-towards-the-light/ 🤖🍃☀️ ☀️🤖🍃 🍃☀️🤖 #Data #DataScience #Robotics #BioElectroChemistry #CyborgPlant #MonitoringPlatform #BioSensors #DigitalWorld #InteractionDesign

These MATERIALS are LIFE GIVING. Typically, 60% of an Indian household's waste is made up of such organic materials. And it's very important to make sure they do not reach the landfill, where they become harmful...Never touched compost?
