Question:Why do we want to keep Earth healthy?|
Answer: Our children + the next generation deserve to inherit a healthy Earth!
Did we not hope that our parents to care of Earth?
Age: 4.54 billion years old
Size: around the waist 24.901.45 miles
Weight: ~6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kilograms
Speed orbiting the sun: 66,700 mi per hour = 107,320 km/h
Polar circumference: 24,855.33 mi = 39,992.22 km
Surface area: 197,000,000 square mi = 510,230,000 sq km
Total land area: 57,900,000 sq mi = 150,100,000 sq km
97% of the Earth's water is salt water
71% of Earth is covered with oceans
Specialty: Earth is the only human-life-supporting planet in our Sol-system
What symptoms does patient Earth show?|
Earth's air is not healthy anymore!
Earth's oceans get sour and filthy, have huge dead zones!
Earth's sea food gets unhealthy!
Earth is getting fatter in the middle!
Earth has tremors, its crust is rumbling, volcanoes spit ash!
Earth's forests are shrinking!
Earth's cooling system is disturbed!
Earth's weather gets violent with strong coughs!
The top layer of Earth has a variety of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.
Earth's crust is moving with Earth's tectonic plates, its volume is less than 1% of Earth's volume, floating on the mantle.
The deeper one digs into the crust, the higher the temperatures are. Every 1000 feet = 300 meter the typical increase is about 10°C = 17°F
Erosion and humans change the stability of Earth's crust!
This was once plant material, buried millions of years ago. This plant material had collected CO2 carbon dioxide for millions of years.
Burning fossil fuels releases this CO2 = carbon dioxide fast, changing patient Earth atmosphere, changing Earth weather, storms, floods.
On some coal fired electricity producing power plants, these coal trains deliver this fossil fuel 24 / 7 - day and night!
Climate change is among the most pervasive threats to the Earth today.|
Tsunamis destroyed many homes!
Floods everywhere on Earth destroy the livelihood of billions!
Children are the first to go hungry and starve to death -
When people have killed buffaloes
to take away the food supply of native people,
morality was killed too.
Nature got unbalanced, birds lost their environment,
plants could grow wild, chaos replaced order...
Earth got sicker.
Earth's forests were once home to many species.
Humans could use plants and animals as a cure for many illnesses.
Earth's forests produce oxygen, taking in CO2.
Fewer forests provide less oxygen.
Earth's forests have stored carbon dioxide.
Less forests can store less CO2.
Burning forests releases CO2 in a short time!
Forests balance and regulate Earth's climate!

Look at the 5 fingers of its flipper!
Earth's oceans have to digest huge amounts of CO2 = carbon dioxide, produced by humans. The oceans chemistry is changed, to many acids change bones, shells, coral reefs, bleaching, destroying huge areas.
Overfishing reduces biodiversity, the balanced life in Earth's oceans is endangered.
Trillions of tons of waste and plastics kill huge amounts of sea creatures,
marine life around Earth is endangered!
What is the diagnosis?|
Too many strange chemicals in the air.
Too many strange chemicals in the water.
Huge amounts of shifting water unbalance continental plates.
Too much sulfuric acid kills growth on Earth's surface.
Too many trees are cut.
Too much carbon dioxide in the air. Heat is trapped.
Too many mono cultures, open spaces force strong winds.

A lot of water is bound in ice.
Ice reflects sun light and keeps Earth cooler.
When the ice is melting,
sea levels will rise.
When the ice is melting,
many living beings will die!
What is the cure?|
So many illnesses require many different treatments:
To cure the respiratory illness we should use more Renewable Energy.
To balance Earth's climate we need to stop deforestation!
To cure the water tract we need to reduce over-fishing,
We need to reduce the amount of man-made chemicals, flowing into our oceans,
we need to reduce the amount of erosion, so less soil is washed into our oceans.
To cure the depletion of Earth's resources we need to intensify recycling.
To have success with these treatments,
we need to convince our societies, that morality comes before greed.
Being irresponsible should be outlawed by all generations and societies!
Killing people with toxins is immoral!
Destroying Earth is immoral too!
What happens when we don't cure the patient?
Symptoms and effects of starvation. Hunger is today a real threat to the world's public health. Malnutrition is by far the biggest contributor to child mortality. Today seven million children die of hunger every year.
Starvation is a severe reduction in vitamin, nutrient, and energy intake, and is the most extreme form of malnutrition. In humans, prolonged starvation causes permanent organ damage and death. The term inanition refers to the symptoms and effects of starvation.
If we don't cure patient Earth, undernourishment, starvation, inanition will be a normal condition for life on Earth affecting many of us, affecting billions of people!
