THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would anda be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would anda be able to do if menulis fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would anda do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorit song on YouTube? What would anda do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would anda do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed oleh SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

The Ecological Balance Hypothesis

Prologue

Over the last few years I have been observing and analysing the human population abusing the natural world, with a select few people interested in its well-being. The natural world itself is a very delicate mixture of organisms, animal and plant alike. As James Lovelock has noted several times, the Earth is like a super-organism, where everything biological is connected in ways that the human brain cannot even begin to grasp at the depths of its complexity. Like the many parts of the brain that connect to one another, the natural world is very similar in status; ecologically, the natural world is just as, atau lebih so, marvellous than the human brain.
The Ecological Balance hypothesis is a justification of the importance of the natural world to humans, as well as the moral consequences involved with the nature of the hypothesis; this means that every activity humans partake in, they have the power to change the natural world, for good atau for bad, and either destroy valuable resources, atau rebuild a tragically diminished world. My idea for this hypothesis is to stress the importance of natural resources, like...

Our society loves stories. Especially those about heroes. They beat the villains and save the world/Galaxy/Universe/humanity from destruction. It often requires some kind of sacrifice, like life atau personal happiness, but hey! It's for the greater good! We than get the enlightened feeling of how we would do it ourselves, if we had a chance. Wouldn't we?

Obviously no. We in fact have a problem that can put us and our world in serious danger. It's just that this time, there isn't a villain anda can put behind bars. No dictators atau maniacs with laughing issues. This time, the villains won't stop. They are everywhere. They don't care. There is no hero. Who could it be?

It's us. We are slowly, almost invisibly, killing Earth and ourselfs. We don't seem to be stoping, we are everywhere and we don't care. There is no hero in tights and even if it was, how can a hero stand a chance against the people he wants to save?
The closest to heroes are people who fight themselves and are trying their best not destroy and pollute. They stand alone in the crowd of those pretending there is no problem, those not knowing there is a problem and those making money...

We overlook the death of this world, as it slowly dies, collapses.
How cold wind blows lost oleh dead trees, poisoning the menabur destruction.

We ignore that destruction wins, nature is on its last legs.
We see past the deception and violence, as the call for peace fade away.
How clink expensive weapons, such as money rules, humanity loses all sense of proportion.

We see how binatang are tortured and brutally murdered.

We take the lives of those who deserve to live and we let those alive who are not ready to give.
We ignore what the famine us tells, we know how to waste what's missing the poor.
We ignore the racism in this world.
We replace cinta to hatred and death.
Is it all worth? Where are our actions leading to?
We allow that people lead wars, that they destroy what gives them hope.
We ignore if the nature complains, defends itself, atau not returns.
We destroy everything, so it can never be the same again.

Unless the pace of global warming slows atau stops, polar bears could disappear within a century, says a universitas of Alberta expert in Arctic ecosystems.

While it has been known for some time that the polar beruang is in trouble, new research shows that Arctic ice - the polar bear's primary habitat - is melting much faster than scientists had believed, says U of A biologist Dr. Andrew Derocher.

"The climate predictions coming out are tampilkan massive changes in sea-ice distribution," berkata Derocher, who follows polar bears to see how they adapt to changing conditions. If the predictions are correct, he says, "we'll certainly lose polar bears in a lot of areas where we currently have them." Ice conditions in the Beaufort Sea, for example, are already changing dramatically.

The world's largest terrestrial carnivores, polar bears rely on sea ice to survive, using it to pass between forest dens and hunting grounds where they prey on seals. There are about 15,000 polar bears in northern Canada, accounting for about two-thirds of the world's total population.

Greenhouse gases are gases in Earth’s atmosphere that absorb and release radiation in the atmosphere. The main greenhouse gases on Earth are Nitrogen, which makes up 78% of Earth’s air, and Oxygen, which makes up 21% of Earth’s air. Methane is also a major greenhouse gas and it is emitted from both human and natural activity. Naturally, Methane is released from some activity such as wetlands, oceans, fresh water bodies, and wildfires. Human activities also releases a large amount of Methane into Earth’s atmosphere. Some of these human activities include fossil fuel burning, nasi, beras cultivation, biomass burning, and waste management. Another abundant greenhouse gas is nitrous oxide, which comes from burning biomass and fertilizers. Water and Carbon Dioxide are also greenhouse gases, even though they are critical to life.
I think that the world should find better ways of using our resources and completely get rid of the outputs of greenhouse gases. I think this is something we need to start now because even if we stopped putting out greenhouse gases today, they still wouldn’t leave Earth’s atmosphere for a really long time, because some of the gases have a...

Keep the earth going green and conserve the green energy!
Ok, basically, this is just a basic artikel about the environment. I'll cover three main topics:
1. Why we need the environment
2. What damages the environment are having
3. How can we help to solve those problems.

Why do we need the environment?
1. We LIVE in it- We need the environment as much as the environment needs us and we live in it, therefore if anda don't want humanity to end, keep the environment aman, brankas in order for us to live and the environment to live. If Earth provided us with things to keep us living, how can we repay?

2. Resources and Needs- Since we live in it, we get the resources from the environment and that keeps us living. That does not mean we, as people, should be greedy and take things to much from the environment but we also need to give the environment what they need. We should keep those two thing balance so we can live in harmony together.

What are the damages the environment are receiving?

I was just being forced to rake some leaves up in the back yard when I came up with the idea of this soapbox. Here you'll find several reasons why leaf raking is not only boring, but a disadvantage to the Earth.

-OK, first off, leaves are obviously biodegradable. So if we left the leaves alone they would slowly degrade. They would make the rumput greener, the soil richer, and even make everything slightly healthier for the animals!
-Unfortunately many people don't do that. They break their backs raking up those poor leaves and burn them, which obviously isn't very good for the environment.
-Also, rakes can harm and rip out rumput and mess around with the soil if it's a certain kind of rake. That isn't good for the environment either.
-For some support on the topic, leaf raking is a complete waste of time and completely pointless. They'll all go away eventually like I berkata before!
-You could be on fanpop rather than doing that stupid junk! And everyone knows going on fanpop is a lot better than making piles of leaves for hours on end!
