We should think how to alleviate the ramifications of our atrocious acts. Acts which made the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctica, this hole permits UV rays to melt the ice glaciers resulting in floods and hurricanes (UV rays are also harmful for us, as these rays lead to skin cancer). Acts which result in the increment of global warming, deforestation, extinction of the flora and fauna, imbalance in nature. We discovered many theories to explore and ventures into the deep space but discovering new theories, developing new technologies, at the cost of our future generation is not wisdom. Substantial development is the key to prohibit catastrophe in the future. To prohibit this deterioration; Save water, flora and fauna, plant as many trees as you can and whatever you can do at your end. If you apply these small steps in your daily activities, your future generation will thank to you. I appreciate those who are working diligently to save this blue planet from drowning into the sea of darkness.
If you really wish to save the planet, kill off half the human population and (somehow) require the rest to live as cave dwellers. We are grossly overpopulated and cannot sustain the rate we use natural resources including other life forms. Until we stop using those resources (including energy) we will continue to change the planet.
Of course, that is the way of nature, and we ARE natural beings. To use resources until starvation and/or disease forces it to change.
Too many people? Did you realize you could take all the people of the earth, put them in family units of 4, give each a 2000 square foot one story house and still be able to fit them all in the state of Texas? With a little room left to spare.
Not that anyone would do that and not to say it wouldn't be rather tight but, just saying.
Just because a certain number of people can physically fit into a certain amount of space doesn't mean that they can live sustainably in that space. Each person requires acres and acres of farm land to keep them fed over their life-time, not even to mention the amount of energy resources that people, especially those in first-world countries, consume. Yes, the planet can cope with the needs of today's population fairly well, but if the population keeps growing at the rate it already is then we're basically screwed within the next 50-100 years.
According to NASA, the ozone hole is recovering and is the smallest since 1988. Google it.
Thank you. I was going to add that little fact but you beat me to it. It's so sad that this theory is still being promoted. If people understood that the earth has been changing since it was created, just as it was designed to, they could better understand what is happening in the world of science. Tracking historical mistakes in science is an interesting exercise, showing us just how easily people make declarations based on unproved theory about the past as well as the future. Of course we should be good stewards of this earth we've been given, but fear mongering because of rejection of what its Creator says is such a sad state of affairs.
I do agree we all should be doing what we can to fight pollution. It is very bad in certain places.
Scientists are now admitting that there are volcanoes (91) beneath Antarctica. The glacier melting is from geothermal sources? In July a new large iceberg was born when an ice shelf broke off, and it is one of the largest we have. The size of Delaware.
Warm Air Helped Make 2017 Ozone Hole Smallest Since 1988

"Thirty years ago, the international community signed the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and began regulating ozone-depleting compounds. The ozone hole over Antarctica is expected to gradually become less severe as chlorofluorocarbons—chlorine-containing synthetic compounds once frequently used as refrigerants – continue to decline. Scientists expect the Antarctic ozone hole to recover back to 1980 levels around 2070."
Trees, flora and fauna are good. We must have 100 trees in the yard and are surrounded by thick forests.
Decades back scientist came up with ozone depletion now they are back with Ozone self repair theory. The Globalwarming keeps fading cuz it makes coal and fossil fuels leass relevant and pisses the stakeholders.
Even if we were to ignore these consequences of human consumption how will be negate weapon testing, atomic explosions, CERN or HAARP experiments, weather modification and blah blah blah...
Lets just enjoy the slow devastation before a hollywood sci-fi flick.. like calamity comes knocking. Even nature is tired of sending reminders and we are anyways way too overstaffed!!!

I heard a radio program the other day. It reported on a study done on the future of our natural resources. The study results showed, that at the current rate of consumption, along with the population growth forcasts, we will exceed the available resources, by our demand, by the year 2030.That means...

The way world population is growing, it won't take much longerto cross 10 billions and its already creating a lots of problemlike deforestation,food problems,green house effects,climate changeetc.Moreover,there are threats of asteroids or comets coming towards planet Earth,this type of incidents...

We know less about our oceans than we do about space. Should do more to explore our own planet?Should we divert funding from the space program to do this?

Almost everyone is already alarmed by the impacts of climate change. Several initiatives by scientists, climatologists, educators, researchers and environmental advocates on the issue of climate change are so many and they are on the rise. In your own respective fields or courses, how do you think...

Is global warming affecting Antarctica and how can we save penguin

Should we build habitats in space?With the nearest earth like planet light years away, would it make since for humanity to build large self sustaining space habitats near resources in the solar system?What do you think?
