Demonstreren of niet?

7168_10200317032185772_38459867_nZe loopt door de straat, niet alleen, er waren velen die ook haar kant uitliepen, naar de dam, allemaal protesteren tegen de genomen maatregelen, de mensonterende en onbegrijpelijke maatregelen.
Weet dan niemand die het daarboven/in dat torentje die het dus voor het zeggen heeft, hoe het echt werkt, hoe het is? Het kan toch niet zo zijn dat als je het niet aan de lijve hebt meegemaakt je er dan dus niet over kan oordelen, of in elk geval op deze manier oordelen?
Wat een zakken, wat een oneerlijke gemene mensen zijn dat. Negeren en delegeren dat is dus ook een vak.
Maakt het ze echt niet uit, of hebben ze gewoon geen compassie, geen belevenis, zijn ze wel aanwezig, bewust?
Soms lijkt het wel of ze haar moeder hoort vertellen van de oorlog, hoe ontzettend bestial er is omgegaan met mensen, door mensen, die vinden dat ze hun best doen, als eerste willen opvallen om een betere opdracht te krijgen, of een klopje op de schouder van die man, die dit alles toen heeft teweeg gebracht, die was niet alleen, miljoenen mensen hebben hem geholpen, maar min of meer gedowngen, of anderszijds niet in staat er tegenin te gaan. Wat hebben we ervan geleerd??
Maar dat was toen, of is het ook nu, als er een moord wordt gepleegd krijgen sommigen een taakstraf, als je op school gepest bent worden de ouders verzocht het gepestte kind maar een paar dagen thuis te houden.
Dat is dus fout, heeft dan niemand door dat er zo een opvoeding/omgeving wordt gekweekt die ervoor zorgt dat je als je jong bent alles/zoveel mogelijk gaat negeren, welke kant moet je opkijken om te zien hoe het wel hoort/kan, kunnen we het tij nog keren? ALs je naar de tv kijkt niet, vreselijke hysterische shows, publiek en series. Uiteraard zijn er uitzonderingen, maar willen we niet liever dat juist die ”goede” uitzonderingen norm worden.
IEDREEN VINDT DAT HIJ HET RECHT HEEFT, MAAR WIE VINDT NOG DAT IE DE PLICHT HEEFT??
Ze is op de dam aangekomen, gelukkig zijn er velen die dit ook niet willen, dat zal toch wel iets helpen, in elk geval geven we hier een signaal af, denkt ze, want anders gebeurt er echt niks.

Why? How? What?

Why we are and How we do and What we don't is ending us.

This is a very interesting story i copied, so see for urself…

Recent polling data shows 74 percent of Americans now believe in climate change, and 68 percent view it as dangerous. The problem environmental activists are facing is in converting those favorable polling numbers into grassroots action.

The math, McKibben explained, works like this. Global leaders recently came to an international agreement based on the scientific understanding that a global temperature raise of 2°C would have “catastrophic” consequences for the future of humanity. In order to raise global temperatures tothis is an interesting issue, ….. this catastrophic threshold, the world would have to release 565 gigatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Here’s the problem: Fossil fuel companies currently have 2,795 gigatons of carbon dioxide in their fuel reserves—and their business model depends on that fuel being sold and burned. At current rates of consumption, the world will have blown through its 565-gigaton threshold in 16 years.

To prevent the end of the world as we know it, it will require no less than the death of the most profitable industry in the history of humankind.

“As of tonight,” McKibben said, “we’re going after the fossil fuel industry.”

Obviously no easy task. The oil industry commands annual profits of $137 billion and the political power to match. As McKibben noted, “Oil companies follow the laws because they get to write them.”

However, there are some numbers on McKibben’s side. Recent polling data shows 74 percent of Americans now believe in climate change, and 68 percent view it as dangerous. The problem environmental activists are facing is in converting those favorable polling numbers into grassroots action.

Enter “Do the Math.”

Using McKibben’s popularity as an author, organizers are turning what would otherwise be a lecture circuit into a political machine. Before rolling into town, Do the Mat smartly organizes with local environmental groups. Prior to McKibben’s lecture, these groups are allowed to take the stage and talk about local initiatives that need fighting. Contact information is gathered to keep the audience updated on those efforts. Instead of simply listening to McKibben, as they perhaps intended, the audience has suddenly become part of their local environmental movement.

It’s a smart strategy, and an essential one—because the problem of climate change is almost exclusively a political in nature. Between renewable energy and more efficient engineering, the technology already exists to stave off catastrophic global warming. Though its application is lagging in the United States, it is being employed on a mass scale in other countries. In socially-stratified China, with its billion-plus population and tremendous wealth inequalities, 25 percent of the country still manages to use solar arrays to heat its water. Germany—Europe’s economic powerhouse—in less than a decade, has managed to get upwards of half of its energy from sustainable sources.

The same can happen here in America—provided we have the will to make it happen. McKibben says the key to realizing that goal is to battle the lifeblood of the fossil fuel industry—its bottom line.

To start, he’s calling for an immediate global divestment from fossil fuel companies. “We’re asking that people who believe in the problem of climate change to stop profiting from it. Just like with divestment movement in South Africa over apartheid, we need to eliminate the oil companies veneer of respectability.”

In conjunction with the divestment regimen, continued protests against unsustainable energy projects will also be crucial. McKibben will be in Washington, D.C. on November 18 to lead a mass rally against climate change and the Keystone Pipeline. “We can no longer just assume that President Obama is going to do everything he promised during his campaign. We need to push him.”

“I don’t know if we’re going to win. But I do know we’re going to fight.”

Do you think that Bill McKibben’s strategy to “divestment” in fossil fuels will work to stop climate change? Discuss in the COMMENTS below.

Recent polling …

Every Brasilian, please we need u to act now!!!!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-17851237

Please ask any Brasil friend to participate in this, it is important for the future of this earth!! READ THIS it is a copy i made from the article u will see if u use the url, but please don’t forget to ask all Brazilians u know to act now!!!!!

Brazil’s powerful farmers’ lobby argues that the changes will promote  sustainable food production. But environmentalists say the new forest code will be a disaster and lead to  further destruction of the Amazon.The bill now goes to President Dilma Rousseff, who may use her veto to remove  some clauses. Wednesday’s 247-184 vote in favour of the new forest code capped a year of  political wrangling. Brazil’s farmers have long pushed for changes, arguing that uncertainty over  the current legislation has undermined investment in the agriculture sector,  which accounts for more than 5% of GDP. Severe environmental restrictions have also forced many smaller farmers off  their land, they argue.

Missed targets?Rural producers would have “more stability and political support,” said  Deputy Paulo Piau, who drew up the Chamber’s version of the bill.

“Production and the environment will only benefit from that. With a confused  law there is no benefit,” he said.

Aerial picture on 29 November 29, 2009 shows a sector of the Amazon forest, in the state of Para, in northern Brazil, illegally deforested Cattle farming, crop production  and logging are the main drivers of illegal clearing of the rainforest

But opponents said the new law was a step back.

“Over the years, we have slowed deforestation and intensified production. Now  we are going to modify all the things that resulted in the decrease of  deforestation by changing the legislation,” said Deputy Sarney Filho.

Greenpeace urged President Rousseff to veto the changes, saying: “It is  unbelievable that the forest code is being eroded weeks before Brazil hosts the  Rio summit (on sustainable development).”

Several former environment ministers had warned that Brazil would miss its  emissions targets if the code were weakened, Greenpeace noted. Deforestation of the Amazon has slowed in recent years, as a result of better  law enforcement, with authorities using satellite images to track clearance. Under the Forest Code, which dates back to 1965, landowners must conserve a  percentage of their terrain forested, ranging from 20% in some regions to 80% in  the Amazon.

This provision remains, but environmentalists say other changes to the code  will erode key protections.

Under the new bill, farmers will be able to cultivate land closer to hilltops  and riverbanks, which are especially vulnerable to erosion if trees are chopped  down. The bill also provides an amnesty from fines for illegally clearing trees  before July 2008, although larger landholders would have to replant most of the  cleared area or preserve the same amount of land elsewhere.

President Rousseff faces a political dilemma, correspondents say, as she  seeks to combine support for economic development, but also uphold environmental  pledges made during her election campaign in 2010

Here u see the map, it is already bad, but if we cannot help it now, Brasil will keep on disforesting and the whole world will get less air, water and so on, this is major important!!!!

Earthday was a succes in many parts of the world!

22 APRIL 2012 EARTHDAY

So many ppl have been busy plant trees, clean parks, put seeds in the ground, restore waterways, fountains, filter it as well.

I am very pleased this day exists and many ppl do care, i hope that money and the crisis we have in Europe will not make pollution getting worse and no one cares, nobody looks away, already the Government of the Netherlands gave the responsibility of the land/environment/ground to the provinces, so no tax money will be spending anymore to keep nature as it is and even make more nature, actually this is against the will/wants of the european commission, they want a certain amount of the land in a country to be nature/green, no human to enter, which is sure most needed, if all ppl living in Europe want to be able to breathe and relax. I wish earth day was also an awakening for all the hungry, the poor without a roof, because earth is not ours, its everybody’s home and actually it a civil right to have a roof, food and clean water.

Then earth day would really serve a grande purpose, joining human to nature and so earth with each its own rights as needed, will we ever be that smart, to overcome money and power-issues and get to work for us, our health and earths health?…….i am just saying………

But anyway here is a part of the story how it started, i did some research and here is a copy from the day when it all started.

People will throw seeds all over the green spots and we are going to plant lots of seeds here at our farm ~ We have flowers and herbs ready to plant as well: ) everybody should do that, it does make a difference u know:)

The 42-year-old event is riding a new wave of global protest

The 42nd Earth Day, held April 22, may not be a round milestone anniversary for those celebrating the annual event devoted to raising awareness about environmental issues, but it will come closer than any in recent memory to the spirit of the first Earth Day held across the U.S. in 1970.

That’s because just like their predecessors, organizers of this year’s Earth Day activities took inspiration from the popular protests happening around the world, choosing the slogan “Mobilize the Earth” as the theme for Earth Day 2012.

“This year, there was a lot of political activity worldwide — from the Middle East to the … Occupy movement,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Earth Day Network.

P.O.V.

“For 2012, we felt mobilization as a concept was really critical, because it helps people understand that they can actually get going, they actually can get something done.”

Rogers’s group works with thousands of organizations and governments in almost 200 countries to promote and help organize Earth Day activities and to raise environmental awareness year-round. It grew out of the group that organized the first Earth Day and still has one of the movement’s founders, Denis Hayes, on its board of directors.

Anti-war protests inspired 1st Earth Day

Gaylord Nelson made conservation a key focus of his two terms as governor of Wisconsin and continued to champion environmental issues in the U.S. Senate, organizing the first Earth Day in 1970.Gaylord Nelson made conservation a key focus of his two terms as governor of Wisconsin and continued to champion environmental issues in the U.S. Senate, organizing the first Earth Day in 1970. (Alex Wong/Getty )The idea for Earth Day was born in the U.S. at the tail end of the1960s amid the heated student protests opposing the Vietnam War. Founder Gaylord Nelson, a Democratic senator from Wisconsin who earned a reputation as a passionate conservationist during his two terms as governor of the state, was impressed by the passion driving the protest movement. He modelled the first Earth Day on the teach-ins that anti-war activists were holding on college campuses to educate students about America’s involvement in the Vietnam War.

Nelson, who died in 2005, and his fellow organizers made environmental issues the focus of their “national teach-ins,” and there was plenty to focus on in 1970.

Unchecked industrialization and urban sprawl had made air pollution a concern in many large American cities; the harmful effects of DDT and other pesticides were also on the public consciousness ever since the 1962 publishing of Rachel Carson’s seminal book Silent Spring; and two high-profile incidents in 1969 put industrial pollution and its impact on the environment top of mind.

The two incidents were a blow-out on an Union Oil drilling rig off the coast of Santa Barbara that spilled 11.4 million litres of oil into the ocean, angering Californians who saw the devastating effects on their beaches and marine life, and a fire on the heavily polluted Cuyahoga River in Cleveland that drew attention to the industrial waste that had for years been voided into the waterway.

‘One of the central goals of the event was to tie all of these diverse strands of environmentalism … together with one bow and make them recognize that they’re part of a coherent movement.’ — Denis Hayes, co-founder of Earth Day

But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system… and fear in those who are pampered by it.

A country of aggressively ignorant fucking cowards. Yes. That’s America. Don’t watch this 2 hour movie. It might cause you pain. Go buy something instead. (but if you do watch it be sure to share it)

Shit. Might have to try and watch this tomorrow, but I know I won’t like it….

FUKUSHIMA: Public health Fallout from Japanese Quake “Culture of cover-up” and inadequate cleanup. Japanese people exposed to “unconscionable” health risks

A “culture of cover-up” and inadequate cleanup efforts have combined to leave Japanese people exposed to “unconscionable” health risks nine months after last year’s meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant, health experts say.

Although the Japanese government has declared the plant virtually stable, some experts are calling for evacuation of people from a wider area, which they say is contaminated with radioactive fallout.

They’re also calling for the Japanese government to reinstate internationally-approved radiation exposure limits for members of the public and are slagging government officials for “extreme lack of transparent, timely and comprehensive communication.”

But temperatures inside the Fukushima power station’s three melted cores have achieved a “cold shutdown condition,” while the release of radioactive materials is “under control,” according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (
