Save Planet Earth
Climate Change and Global Warming
Its like opening a can of worms trying to get agreement on climate change (which many argue is not happening) and global warming which is evident from the erratic weather patterns, out of control super fires, tsumanis, tornadoes that are becoming ever more violent and appearing where they never did before and rising sea levels.
As world leaders did not succeed in Copenhagen to fix matters surely there is more that individuals can do. So what is your take on climate change and do you think about global warming and its consequences? Is there a master plan for climate change that makes it inevitable? That's the nature of this discussion on the efforts we might employ to save Planet earth and whether or not its possible for us to do anything.
Its amazing how these little creatures (worms) impact on our lives. Living as they do out of sight and out of mind they are one of the main things that plants and animals rely on for food and health.
That's a big statement but without worms we will die because we too depend on them. Without worms the earth will die. But this is not a debate on worms as such but on what went into making this planet, what keeps it going, and how we can help, if we have a mind.
Was Creation Meant For Us?
Should we value or abuse it?
During a television interview an astrophysicist stated of the earth that it is so finely positioned in the universe that were it just 2-5 centimeters out of alignment then it would be impacted by other planets and destroyed.
It set me thinking about how it was formed and what went into making it habitable for humans. If we go back a few million years the climate was vastly different, the habitat inhospitable and the animals that roamed around were frightening in the extreme. They were super sized compared to today's version.
We know they existed because their remains have been found and dated. We also know they were mostly like giant lizards that lived in extremely cold climates. As the temperature warmed they went extinct, but there are other suggestions for why this happened. Some theorists propose that giant earthquakes or volcanic eruptions caused a global winter and their food died out. Others state that this was not the cause and that other conditions came into effect, such as a meteor hitting the earth.
Well, we don't know exactly what happened to them but without their demise anything like humans or our ancestral hominids could never have survived. Frankly they would have eaten us because some of them were very skillful carnivorous hunters.

Do You Believe in Evolution? - Many say the earth was created in 7 days around 6,000 years ago.
Which theory do you support?
Are There Other Alternatives
Is Eviolution and Instantaneous Creation the only considerations
What Killed The Dinosaurs - Was it a meteor?
God Works to a Plan.
Is Everything So Finely in Tune That nothing Happens by Accident?
Theories of how the universe began attempt to by-pass the obvious. We have a supreme master in control of all things and nothing happens by chance. Of course that's just my opinion but it also comes from my knowledge. Many scientists and others, however, don't recognize that there is a God. So where do they stand on the question of how we got here?
There is this theory that everything started as a result of a big bang and chaos that is their answer to that question. Things flying out from the core of a big explosion to form planets, suns and the other components of space is simply ridiculous. It does not take a genius to realize that chaos is no creator. Take a car accident for instance. Does it create anything? Or an atomic explosion which sends particles of dust and debris miles into the sky? Does it create anything? Of course not, these things are destroyers not creators.
It also doesn't take much to realize that for there to have been explosion there had to have been matter beforehand. So where did that come from and what caused the explosion in the first place? That would have required gas of some sort but the planets are not formed of gas but solid matter.
Then again are men the best ones to judge anything? They have formed some pretty stupid ideas in the past when it comes to creation.
Before knowledge to the contrary they believed that babies came from the sun and that women exposed to the light would get pregnant. There are still societies who believe that, which is the real purpose of the berker worn by Muslim women who cover themselves when outside? Now, of course most of us know better but we all went along with it in the past. Not so long ago women in western societies covered their bodies to the ankles and hands when outside and always wore hats or scarves. Was that for the same reason?
There is no human solution to how and why things got started and when it will all end. If there is still a mystery then it has to be this. But the Spirit laid down a picture of how things are and we should not be ignoring that for the sake of science, which is often incredibly wrong.
For someone to see something that will happen in the future and to write about it means that it has to have been preplanned. Nothing can happen accidentally if it is foretold. That eliminates the big bang and chaos theories.
Do You Support the Big Bang Theory?
Was chaos responsible for all creation?

The Big Bang Theory
Just because someone is a professor does not make him or her an expert. They tend to put up theories that others have to then pull down in order to change the status quo.
What Was Really Involved in Human Evolution?
Where did we begin?
When starting out to examine the theories that man is created in God's image the claim was instantly problematic. We did not come into the earth instantly and begin to populate it. In fact, a lot of things went before hand.
The way evolution progressed was in accordance with how the earth was prepared for the millions of new species as they emerged. The more one examines this the more obvious it becomes that the earth is a living organ. It has lungs, a heart, circulation and substance that we might never get to fully understand. It has moods and a temper and it sways back and forth to bring about the seasons which control life. In other words it is the giver and preserver of life. That's what most indigenous people realized and why it is called Mother nature.
Look at a televised map of the world's climate and see the currents that pervade. It is almost unbelievable. Winds are opposing each other and around the globe drift like currents in the ocean. Then there is the ocean. It has tides, waves, movement and is constantly moving. When winter comes everything dies down but in the spring it all perks up again. But when it is winter in one part of the world (say the Northern Hemisphere) it is summer in the other part
Birds, sea creatures and even insects have the ability to migrate over great distances to maintain life. The breeding seasons are also controlled and within every creature is something we may never understand. They have the ability to travel great distances to special places for breeding purposes when the environment is right for it.
This is demonstrated in a television documentary that recently featured on the ABC television network in Australia. Presented by Paul Lockyer and his team (all killed in a helicopter crash in 2011) it shows thousands of birds arriving on Lake Eyre (15 m or 49 ft below sea level) when it flooded due to recent heavy rains (info and image from Wikipedia)
This is normally a salt encrusted basin during drought and is lower than the dead sea. After 10 years of having no water in it the question Paul asked is how did the birds know that it was now full of fresh water? But it was also full of fish and other wildlife. Seagulls were also there in their thousands having migrated from the coast hundreds of kilometers away.
Trees need to shed dead leaves and branches so the strongest winds arrive right on time to do just that. Everything happens in unison because of the presence of everything else. Nothing happens on its own. Nothing happens by accident as this is a living, thriving and working planet.
Summer provides heat for animals and plants to reach their peak and produce the necessary offspring and food for all creatures dependent on it. Not a single one of any species is left unfed. Little insects take seeds deep into the ground where they germinate to grow into new plants for the millions of animals that need to be sustained. Birds fertilize flowers they recognize by color, bees pollinate and make honey, and worms are doing their thing under the soil.
Could this rhythm possibly be the result of chaos? No! An extremely clever master planner had to have been its creator. Every bit is in place and everything works in unison to create an environment in which we can live. To sustain life there is food provided by nature for free but we have taken that power from her as we change it to be producers of our own.
Not until the climate was right and the environment was perfect for us did mankind emerge. But not from a single human or a pair of humans but from primordial beings that are related to apes. Horror of horrors. When religious people heard that they were shocked to the core. The fossils and evidence came out of the earth to confirm it. Mankind evolved! Now mankind is destroying it.
Do You Know Why We Are Here? - Was everything created just for humans?
With all the theories going around and the massive success of humanity over all other creatures it is not hard to believe that humans are the main thing for which the earth was created.
Is the earth under our control?
What's an alternative view?
Was the earth created just for humans?
Taking More than We Need Is Disastrous. - We are bringing all creatures to an end.
Land and Sea in Unison
How it works
Water and oxygen are the two components essential for all life. Trees take in the carbon dioxide that animals expel and from the waste and rotting matter in the earth, such as from fallen trees and so on. They give out oxygen through their leaves as a product of the production of chlorophyll, the green substance that plants make. They also draw up water from beneath the earth and expel it through their leaves into the atmosphere, as shown in the picture.
The oxygen combines with hydrogen in the atmosphere to create more water, H2O. That rises up as small particles to form into clouds that then shed the water over the land and sea when they reach saturation point. Take away the trees, as we are doing around the world, and two things happen. First there is far less oxygen and, therefore, water or rain, and second the denuded earth turns into desert without the forest cover. Not much grows in the desert that is of any food value to us so agricultural lands disappear. Next comes FAMINE.
This may take time to occur but occur it will, and history proves it. Trees being destroyed right now may be up to a thousand years old and we don't know how vital they are to our future.
When the rain falls it gathers into streams at the lowest point of the landscape and then merges into ever larger streams called rivers. Along the banks is a special zone of plants and an environmental habitat called the 'Riparian Zone'. It is here that a lot of nature's magic happens as the water moves through it. First heavy particles drop off that may be rich in nutrients and seeds of plants that will take root and preserve the area for animals and plants.
But man can't see the value of this area so he hacks away at it, destroys the swamps, lines the banks with rocks and stops all animals from getting to the river. Meanwhile he stocks his land with cattle and such that pollute the water along with chemicals, excreta, and so on. Its all for money which is a human invention to create wealth. Meanwhile the trees along the banks die, the things that fed the animals in the river are no longer there so they either die or migrate if possible. Then man plants his own trees for aesthetic purposes and they are most likely poisonous to the animals and many will spread like weeds destroying what may have still survived.
Up river he builds dams, huge things to hold back the water so the lower plains get far less than they otherwise would. Trees die, animals die and the water is not sifted of the impurities as in the past. This is just one case in point of the danger that man is creating for the world. The love of minerals sees mining taking place and heavy metals and other poisons are also fed into the once pristime water ways. This is water that many depend on for drinking and agriculture.
But man always has a solution. Change nature to suit what he invents, how he wants to run things and how he perceives things should be. The result is real chaos and that is killing us. Chaos does not create life it destroys it. It does not make a useful habitat it pollutes it. It does not work in unison with anything but opposes systems and teamwork to overturn all things beneficial.
This is just another reason why the creation and running of the universe is in the hands of a master planer, the Universal Spirit, and beyond our comprehension.
Should Man Change His Ways Before it is Too Late? - Or is the earth already beyond help?
What should we be doing right now to change?
Can or Should Man Change His Ways?
What;s your opinion
We Had a Wonderful World - What happened to it?
How Intelligent is Man?
When he works against nature and creates chaos
When partners work to oppose each other then nothing comes out right. This is how man is with nature. Everything was provided but we were not satisfied with that as man had to invent his own systems.
Today we see how animals survive in the wild. They don't need money or houses because the land provides everything, that is until man destroys their habitat. Animals don't go off to work in the morning and come home grumpy at night with headaches and bad tempers. They live in relative peace and harmony with the land, that is they did before man learned to hunt them for sport and trophies as well as exploit their vulnerability for money. Sure there is hardship to be experienced and overcome and not all make it, but the species does, that is they did before man took everything from them for himself.
Man might think he is clever but is he really?
Once he got the hang of power and how to use it man went out of control. He shut his eyes and ears to common sense and went after the ridiculous to make his life better and win out against the odds. But who is the winner now?
He learned how to build huge dams, create electricity, build cities and vehicles for transport. He learned too how to make it right for breeding huge populations and then for preserving human life through medications, sanitation, and preventing abortions or infanticide. He said that all human life is precious and yet, in societies where the impact is greatest, the very children he insisted on being born are now dying from horrible diseases, like Aids, or starving to death in agony. Who cares? Not too many and few are calling for a change to population growth.

Liars Are Taking It All
And we are letting them do it
For some time now I cannot watch scenes in which animals are injured or killed because it strikes at my heart and makes me sick. But the media is full of violence and murder of all types both against humans and animals, and especially about the environment.
It seems OK to show wild explosions and huge fires to emphasize drama. It is OK to show rape and murder on the screen and to make BIG guys out of small actors. They puff up their chests and swing their arms as though they are geniuses, or rather gods of some description and people worship them. They are paid in millions of dollars and live in unbelievably big houses with servants and several fast and luxurious cars. They strut around as though they are kings and people follow them lapping up their 'aura' along the way. They star in movies and such and people emulate them. The hangers on dress like them, act like them, and imitate them in such faithful ways that they are themselves portraying their inability to be themselves.
Young kids try to be like them and they learn to worship idols. Even sportsmen and, to a lesser extent, sportswomen are placed up there to be admired and followed. Parents live in hope that their child will one day make it big as an actor, a movie star, a ,model, or something along those lines. They rarely conscientiusly teach their children to preserve their environment, to stop using plastic; to think again before cutting the tree down that might be in the way of their view of something asetic. Few would teach their offspring to have fewer or no children. When it comes to longevity just about everyone is in there wanting to live longer.
But an actor is a liar, a thief and a cheat. They are not the people they portray on stage. They learn the role and rehearse it over and over and through many takes one is chosen to be closest to perfection to include on the screen. This is the trick, the lie, and the cheating. They are not 'living' the part they are acting it. Kids think far differently than the older generations who have lived through stress, depression and wars. We have seen how man's greed and misguided thinking is destructive and not preserving life but greatly handicapping it.
In nature animals are not acting they are living the part. Humans, on the other hand, cannot see the truth in what nature does. They want to believe the lies. They want to be tricked and cheated because that is how humans mostly are. They cannot think for themselves because they need others to tell them how to think and what to do. They are following the fools who are putting us in danger of global collapse as the environment fails but the cry is out; SAVE THE JOBS. Don't worry about where our food and the air we need to breath will come from when the atmosphere is poisoned with carbon dioxide and we die. JUST SAVE THE JOBS.
Money is the motivator and the killer and we have never really needed it, we only think we do.
