Cancer and the Climate Change

The Ozone layer at the top of the earth’s atmosphere is supposed to protect the earth from harmful rays from outer space. If the Ozone gets damaged, more rays permeate the atmosphere and one of the results is an increase in skin and other forms of Cancer. It can be supposed, that a healthy way of live will decrease the chances to get cancer. The risk of a heavy cigarette smoker to get cancer is much higher than the risk of one who does not smoke. If nature gets polluted beyond a...

Natures Right in the Year 2011

In the year 2010 so many incidents happened which were severe blows to the integrity of nature. Just as an example the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the Red Sludge in Hungary as major incidents. It would take too much space to mention all lesser incidents. But the message is clear, nature can’t be treated as though it is a punching bag.   All incidents, major and minor and over the years add up to one big punishment for nature. That human beings...

Oh, Mr. President

After more then 50 days of an unparalleled Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, US- President Obama realized that this catastrophe can be compared to  catastrophes such as Chernobyl, 9-11 or the Katrina-Hurricane.

The Katrina-Hurricane was needed, so that Mr. Al Gore could make his movie An Inconvenient Truth. Which led to the so called Al Gore-Effect. Public awareness was...

50 Days of Oil Spill and More to Go!

The Morality of Climate Change demands that if something terrible as the present Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico will happen again, because of negligence,  the people responsible must be held accountable in criminal court. Even if the accidents are of a lesser degree. In a time where the danger of a changing climate becomes a real possibility other, tighter criterion’s must be applied! Natures Right to remain complete and undamaged must be regarded higher then the present practice. When...

One more time!

One more time!

Again there is an Oil Spill! This time off the coast of Louisiana/USA. On the 22. April 2010 it was reported that an oil rig in the gulf of Mexico was first burning and then it sank. Polluted first the air with the smoke and later the sea with an oil sheet that is now penetrating the wetlands of Louisiana. BP as the owner of the rig, so it seems, didn’t plan for a major incident. This is not the first time something like this is happening. The list seems to be endless. And only the major...
