Technology Can’t Save Biodiversity

Technology Not The Solution To Climate Change

Denying the contributions of air pollution to climate change is like trying to defy gravity. If you disagree, just see what happens when you put a running car in the garage and close the door. It will kill you.

Our atmosphere also is a confined space and we are pumping it full of toxins and greenhouse gasses every minute. It isn’t going anywhere. It’s building up, adding to the greenhouse effect, and contributing to toxic buildup. Of course, the atmosphere and ecosystems are more complex than that, but the atmosphere can only absorb so much abuse before it fights back.

I’m not writing to preach about alternative energy. This is about forest conservation and life as we know it. Whether you believe in god or mother nature, forests are here for a reason. The biodiversity within those forests is here for a reason. We are all part of this web of life and to think that one component of the web is less important than another is naive. Humanity has raped the planet almost beyond recognition already. It’s time to turn back the clock.

We can’t restore rainforests as well as the original. Therefore, we have to draw the line on deliberate destruction immediately. We must reforest immediately. We can create clean jobs. We can preserve watersheds and wildlife. We can attempt to restore the natural balance.

The Kilimanjaro ecosystem, for example, is on the verge of collapse. Once it reaches a tipping point, there will be no turning back. Millions of people more will die or be displaced. Endangered species will go extinct. People in that region are screaming for help now.

I’m pursuing rainforest restoration/conservation projects as a hobby and I’m prioritizing my time and my money into natural solutions. I’m not giving up on technology and conservation, but ecosystems are brilliant creations. We need to make them our top priority in a holistic sense. The human population has already exceeded capacity of the planet. You don’t have to be a scientist to know that a rising human population and diminishing natural resources is a formula for disaster.

Environmental diseases and disasters are fighting back at humanity more than ever now. The sewage nightmare is already killing us thanks to unstoppable and very transmissible forms of prion disease. There isn’t any technology available to cure these diseases. There isn’t any technology available that is going to heal the planet. It’s time for humanity to quit being arrogant about very basic aspects of life. It’s time invest in nature more than ever. It’s better to be good and fast than perfect and late.
