The present era comes to an end, thanks to the perils of a probable Climate Change.
The approaching era will inevitably be called the Ecological Era.
But what does Ecology mean?
Most people if asked, will mumble something about the Environment and that’s it. Others will recite the dictionary.
Both will be right and still both are only partly true.
The term ecology is derived from the ancient Greek word Oikos and means house or any kind of dwelling, apartments and so on.
Ecology means the teaching of the house or nature.
Nature allocates for every one and everything a specific room or space in her house.
Every disturbance of this fragile static is to be avoided!

Humans have always tried to enlarge their room. This means that the static of the house will be affected. If the room meant for us humans will be destroyed, we all will be homeless!
Closely related is the term Ecology is the term Economy, which derives from the same root.  It means House keeping.
Ecology is like a coin.
On one side is the natural environment and on the other side is human society.
The narrow ridge  that separates the sides is the ecological way on which society has to walk in order to maintain
the balance.
It is indisputable, that something is happening on planet earth. The phenomenon is called called the Climate Change.
The Climate Change is only the symptom for a much deeper problem.
How man kind regards nature.
Either as a mother who feeds us or as a slave, that we can exploit. But until total destruction?
The dilemma is, even as we understand, that we have to change our ways, but will the changes mean mass unemployment?
That does not have to happen if the phase of transition is thought and mapped out.
In order to do so, one has to establish a destination one wants to get to.
The destination is to restore balance with nature.

By changing our way of live and by restoring nature!

    Hi there, I discovered your blog via AOL while searching for first aid for a heart assault and your post seems really fascinating for me.

    Hello Max and hello to all the readers, in a simple way ecology is the study of the relationships between organisms and their environment.

    Physiological ecology focuses on the relationships between individual organisms and the physical and chemical features of their environment. Behavioral ecologists study the behaviours of individual organisms as they react to their environment.

    Population ecology is the study of processes that affect the distribution and abundance of animal and plant populations.

    Community ecology studies how communities of plant and animal populations function and are organized; it frequently concentrates on particular subsets of organisms such as plant communities or insect communities.

    Interesting facts you are showing , but ecological Era Could Add Shine to Platinum’s Future, The Green Revolution spells big business for South Africa’s platinum industry, as the metal is a key weapon in the fight against smog and acid rain.

    South Africa provides 80% of supplies to the Western world and will increase production of the metal, which is more valuable than gold, to meet rising demand. Several platinum producers said the higher output reflects rising demand from jewelers in Italy and especially in Japan, where the metal is preferred to gold as an ornament. producers say most of the sales growth will come from platinum’s use in catalytic converters–devices that reduce pollutants in automobile exhausts. The auto industry is the biggest user of the metal.

    Good Ecology Is Good Business, the Green Revolution was certainly a very important achievement for our country. We increased wheat production between 1964 and 1968, by nearly eight million tonnes, which is higher than the production advance achieved during the preceding 4,000 years. and then developed and proposed the methodology of an evergreen revolution, which will help to improve agricultural productivity in perpetuity, without associated ecological harm.
