Environmental Review - Spring 2017 Part 2


Urban Canairie Blog - Environmental Concerns

Looking back over the past few decades, we can celebrate success in avoiding wide-scale environmental disasters caused by air and water pollution, a depleted ozone layer, etc.  It took more time than it should have, however we eliminated/minimized the use of dangerous pesticides, fluorocarbons and leaded gasoline which has helped the environment tremendously. 

However, the evolving fight to keep earth healthy continues…  With what appears to be more dire consequences than ever before!

Below is the second and final collection of some of the best environmental related quotes and stories from the Spring of 2017.  Climate change and ocean acidification continue to be two of the biggest environmental concerns of the year, with some progress being made, however with lots more work to be done.  It appears as though the simple truth is that we must reduce carbon dioxide emissions and conserve and grow the world’s forests in order to ensure the natural health of the planet in order for future generations of life, including humans, to survive and hopefully thrive!

Wondering who the top 5 guilty parties (of producing energy related C02) are?  They are China, the United States, Russia, India and Japan, with the USA being the highest (worst offenders) per capita.  Details, along with more interesting information can be found at:

So…  The planet that we live on appears to be in it's worst shape of the modern human era, with climate change and ocean acidification threatening to have serious impacts on the survival of life on Earth…

What we need is for the good people of planet Earth to work together with a common goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, conserve and grow the world’s forests along with coming up with other new and innovative solutions.  I know that we can do it, however we must with time-sensitive urgency!
