Changing Culture or Climate

Changing Culture or Climate

Life is a constant change. Some things have to be accepted, like the seasons of the year or growing old. Consult the I Ging (or Ching), the book of changes (1). Some things can’t be accepted, like the Climate Change. Especially since it is caused by man and could, at least, be mitigated. Some people believe that the Climate Change is part of a natural cycle and that this is therefore not a cause to worry. Nothing can be further from the truth. If the Climate Change is a natural cycle...

Pope Francis and Climate Change

Pope Francis and Climate Change

Pope Francis is  a pop pope (1). At last a pontiff who is widely popular and not just by religious people. His predecessor Pope Benedict XVI (2) appeared to be morose and not very friendly. Unlike Benedict Pope Francis is not afraid to speak out against social injustice, income inequality or other everyday problems. I want to concentrate on two topics pertaining to Nesseq.com. One is the stance of Pope Francis about Climate Change and the other about population in general. Pope Francis...

Every major scientific discovery was first...

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...

Greek Islands Reforestation Project – GIRP

A couple of thousand years ago earth was full of forests. The destruction is the mostly results of human deeds. And the destruction of the forests still goes on. For millions of years the forest and the phytoplankton in the oceans were the sources to absorb the CO2 in the atmosphere. But both are being badly damaged. Some people will try to sell a technology to do the photosynthesis. Then we will have to buy oxygen in the supermarket, just like exotic table water. The question is whether...
