China is the lead manufacturer of the world and with a massive 1.379 billion population and without proper regulations this can lead to range of problems:
• Vehicular emissions
• Everyday garbage •Industrial waste •Industrial emissions • Mass coal burning for energy production.(60% of china's energy comes from this)
•Environmental cases are not taken seriously in court
• Proper treatment of waste •carbon emissions from vastly populated cities -If china's pollution epidemic worsens the country will collapse as life will not be able to thrive in such areas!

We've seen a 40% rise in carbon dioxide since the Industrial Revolution, releasing it much faster than Earth can absorb it. From the unabated melting of glaciers and polar ice caps, to changes affecting our planet's ecology, it's evident that global efforts to combat climate change are crucial to our survival.

EL PLÁSTICO DEL PACÍFICO SUR SE ACUMULA ENTRE RAPA NUI Y JUAN FERNÁNDEZ

Trozos de botellas, tapas, mallas de barcos pesqueros, una boya y muchos pedazos inclasificables de #plástico fueron algunos de los desechos encontrados durante una expedición en aguas chilenas liderada por Charles Moore, oceanógrafo conocido por haber descubierto, hace 20 años, un gran "parche" de plástico en el Pacífico Norte.

Moore señala que en el Pacífico Sur existe un parche de #basura entre #RapaNui y #JuanFernández, esto ya que las corrientes marinas desplazan los residuos por los #océanos, concentrándose en ciertos giros donde convergen las corrientes. La tripulación también recogió muestras de #peces, constatando que sus estómagos estaban llenos de plástico.

Este material jamás desaparece: va transformándose con el tiempo en partículas más pequeñas denominadas como #microplásticos, los cuales formarán una delgada capa sobre el #mar en los próximos 50 u 80 años si todo sigue igual.

Taipei! 👏👏🌎

Take a look at this twisting, smog-eating tower that is going up in Taipei, Taiwan.

On the outside, 23,000 trees and shrubs – nearly the same amount found in New York’s Central Park – will fill the skyscraper’s facade, roof, and balconies. And inside, it will feature 40 luxury condos.

The plants will absorb 130 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year – the equivalent of about 27 cars, lead designer Vincent Callebut tells Business Insider.

Called the Tao Zhu Yin Yuan Tower , it’s set to open by September 2017.

CEF FFT: Imagine what cities could look like (not too far) in the future if we set new municipal standards that increased our sustainability and environmental health!

Even she is pledging to guard the environment against our atrocities! :))) #greedandgreen #pollution #preserve #protect #protest #saveearth #savetrees #saveenvironment #savethefuture

On a serious note there is already way too much damage dealt and still being done to our waters and we need to make a move to clean them up. This short clip is barely a drop in the ocean of all the pollution being pumped out everyday. Take care of our waters that we love and fish so the next generation can enjoy the same luxuries we take for granted.

INCREDIBLE DOG RESCUES A DROWNING FAWN !

Warning... #RANT COMING

Need to rant about the Korean government blinding citizens about air Quality and Pollution here in Seoul.

Air Quality screenshots here in Seoul today, not bad but certainly still not good. Yet no one in Korea is even concerned and I could not understand why until a lunch conversation with @jinheechu this weekend. She was checking Air Quality for months now using Naver (Google of Korea) and it kept saying the air was green/"ok". We showed her another app that uses the WHO standard for AQI and it is far from green. Well that coversation got me digging and boy did we find dirt.

1. Korea decided to drop AQI indexes all together and us particle measurements instead. This allows then to ignore total air quality and only report what they want. (which could be a good thing if they reported the important stuff)

2. They now report in all search engines and their website PM10 readings first NOT PM2.5! PM2.5 is the ultrafine dust that cause respiratory problems and lung cancer long term. You wont see those readings unless you click specifically to see that rating and PM2.5 is by far the worst here. PM10 is usually always in acceptable limits. Again this is what all search engines and government websites report effectively making it seem like the air quality is always good. (We call this cherry picking data in science)
3. The also decided to come up with their own color scheme! The WHO uses green for good air quality but Korea decided Blue is good and therefore they could make "moderate air quality" green. So instead of seeing lots of yellow markers like you see in my Air Visual screen shot you see lots of green in the government screen shot. Totally blinding people to how bad it really is.
4. The also changed the scale of what is bad. WHO says that PM2.5 over 12 is unhealthy long term. But the Korean Government changed it to 15 for "blue" and up to 50!?!?! For what will report as green. 50 in the WHO index would be RED.

No wonder Koreans dont wear masks when they should or protest about bad air. They are blinded by the government to know any better.

Taken on approach to Port-Au-Prince. Over 80% of ocean pollution comes from land. Recycling helps make shirts instead of pollution. ♻️

Did you know that the average American throws away 185 lbs of plastic per year? How do you compare? Whether you use more or less there are always ways to reduce your use...say no to plastic straws, buy and use a steel thermos, bring a reusable shopping bag to the store...whatever you can do, do it today. Begin your journey to sustainability one decision and one day at a time. Mahalo!
