Quote: Learning never exhausts the mind – Leonardo Da Vinci
Everybody’s got to learn sometime, a powerful and emotional statement, but what is it that we need to learn?
All of us have our own learning journey, however if one is referring to recent world events I would be inclined to think that the lesson to be learned is accepting the reality that not everybody has peaceful plans like we do but after accepting that, what is the next step?
After hearing the devastating news on the invasion of Ukraine I started sharing immediately on social media, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Youtube, you name it. Sharing the sad stories but also the inspirational ones, however disturbingly through my scrolling I came across so many doomsday posts especially on facebook, such as the beginning of WW3, the effects of nuclear war with no real positive solutions just that if it happens just a single clear message “There is nothing you or I can do about it” .
This is also the same with Climate Change, as I live in Brisbane, Qld, Australia, you may have heard that we have more or less have experienced if not worse the 2011 floods again, I’m presuming these will be called the 2022 floods, were not that original with the dramas down here, down under to my international readers.
Me personally I was affected in the sense that my study for which I am typing this blog was inundated through a leaky windowsill and suffered the effects of a smelly carpet and smelly bleach, took a lot of airing out and similar story with my garage and I was cut off from my Full time job in the city, however no where near as damaging as lot of people in SEQ & Northern NSW have experienced and my heart goes out and of course will donate and help where I can.
Having seen the horrific scenes in Lismore NSW of people in tinnies(small Australian tin boat) was nothing that I have seen from Northern NSW before or can recall. However some people have said 1 in a 1000 year flood, well all I can say to that is that these 1 in a whatever’s seem to be happening more often than not…… there how is that for being subtle. Climate change in my firm opinion is definitely what is happening here, denying it, is STUPID…..BUT DOOMSDAY POSTING IS IGNORANT.
One might may say that Nuclear War will never happen, sadly from what I know of humans I no longer share that comfort, you will notice just recently Russia shelled a Nuclear power plant, its contained for now, but you have to ask yourself why?
What is the reasoning behind this, if you want Ukraine as part of Russia where is the intelligence in trying to blow up a Nuclear power plant, just invade the Ukraine like you are doing. Some people just don’t have empathy therefore don’t have reasoning, VP(Vladimir Putin) is in that category.
People have also posted that Climate Change is the end of the world and if we don’t do something now, its all over. I’m inclined to think we have already gone past that point judging from the many recent climate events we have had just here in Australia in the last 10 years.
We need solutions NOW! I don’t believe for one second that the world is going to blow up or that we face extinction, but we do need to ask ourselves in this current time, What are we going to do in the event of a NUCLEAR WAR and how are we going to handle CLIMATE CHANGE?
In the event of a Nuclear war we will have to try and survive the Nuclear winter, doing a lot of googling, the information I have found is that after several bombs have hit, the mushroom clouds will bring up 1M tonnes of debris(dirt matter) that will envelope the earth and block out the sun which of course generates life. Because there is so much dirt matter it will stay in the atmosphere for a certain amount of years, some say 10, some say 20.
Let’s unpack this doomsday scenario, humans have been breaking down dirt matter, such as pollution, even dirt on our clothes in our homes and businesses for years, we deal with dirt matter everyday. Obviously the solution is that we find a biological way to breakdown the huge amount of dirt matter that the nuclear winter is going to generate. I am convinced that with all the great advances we have made in the last 2 centruries we can find a way to achieve this. Its on a huge scale that’s true but we can do it! After this then concentrate on revitalising radioactive areas.
Climate change means more climate and environmental disasters than what we are used to, I can think of 3 things that would be needed, a National Insurance and economic payment system, Weather accurate prediction modelling along with a national communication setup and a National Emergency Response Service. Australia more or less has these things, but there certainly needs to be more emphasis and funding in these key areas and when you buy or rent a property you are given a risk assessment of what dangers you could face, there would be no such property that doesn’t have risks but at least as a resident you have the knowledge.
