First thing that needs be done is get buy-in from those that own the world. This may not be as difficult as one might think - as the world is currently on a crash course with disaster - and I am not referring to CO2 - "Global Warming" We are fking with the Oceans - not a garbage can .. this is #1 Environmental Issue - and the big Elephant in the Blue room - but - the lid is coming off this one .. 2 and 3 are Industrialization and Population Growth .. which are two more elephants in the Blue room - both mentioned in Moores new flick - along with #1 but this is a given and not debated in serious circles. He took flack for 2/3. 4) CO2/"Global Warming" - its not like this is not an issue - but by the time this kicks in to the point where we are forced to react - we will already have fked the planet in other ways. Something needs to be done - We simply can't continue to industrialize the non industrialized at the rate we are doing it. We need to look at population growth as a bad thing - especially in the first world - Particularly when you are transforming a third world (bowl of rice a day) individual into a First world consumer of resources. The ratio is 1 to 36 .. meaning the first world person consumes 36 x that of the rice eater. Around 2010 I read a study - China was (11) said if China was to reach first world leves of consumption - world resource production would have to double. Think on that -- this is just China - At the time there was roughly 1.4 Billion on the planet industrialized - out of 7 Billion. By 2030 we my have another 1.4 Billion people industrialized .. we are roughly half way there. The problem is that by 2030 the population will be 8.5 Billion... so we have not made a dent in the non industrialized .. but we have increased consumption - and the concurrent pollution and energy usage HUGE .. We don't have to wait 30 years to see the impacts .. we are measuring them today. This is not some model of what might happen .. this is happening right now.. more than 2 cans of Tuna a week and you exceed the Mercury guideline for pregnant women. While this is low - I get it - we are hitting boundaries .. measurable ones .. so lets double the pollution loading by industrializing another Billion people every 15 years ? This is is a lunatic path.. and the math is ugly .. and near nothing is being done - due to myopic focus on CO2 - "Global Warming" . Should we have to society can turn off the CO2 tap fairly quickly .. how exactly are we going to filter the Ocean ? Google Dead Zones - Ocean .. this is from nitrogen/fertilizer run off - stimulates bacteria who use up the oxygen creating an anoxic zone where Ocean sea creatures do not survive. roughly 60% of oxygen comes from Ocean .. are you sure we want to push the limits of the microbiological equilibrium ? Environmental microbiology is not well understood by the mainstream - neither in medicine nor in Environmental Science - and certainly not Environmental Engineering. It is very well understood however in other disciplines - such as "Environmental Microbiology" an area which I have some expertise. 90 Trillion dollars is sitting in 3 banks - owned by a few families .. half of that is enough to fix the world.
