1. Overfishing
2. Carbonizing & thus acidifying
3. Water over use & cycle disruption
4. Waste dumping
5. Plastics pollution
6. Desalination en masse
7. Heat dumping & global warming
8. Ocean floor mining & oil drilling & spills
9. Seashore development
10. Sound & light pollution
This is what we’re doing to our oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds, streams and water cycles. From large scale sand extraction for building empty mega cities on the Pacific to oil drilling in the Strait of Hormuz to French nuclear heat dumping to carbon production everywhere
The water systems of the world, the oceans, are, like the atmosphere, climate stability, and topsoil, the basis of life on this planet.
Oil drilling, natural gas, shipping, mining, over fishing, seashore development, ocean laid infrastructure & agriculture affect 5-10 of these directly. Nuclear & geoengineering directly affect around 7, and indirectly the rest.
I’m sick of proposals for supposedly simple technological cure alls (which usually presume not yet existent technology to boot), when actually simple, thousand year proven solutions already exist that are vastly more efficacious.
Agroecology, permaculture, Silva culture, soil restorative practices, afforestation, remarshing, rewilding, recycling, reuse, reduction, seasonal migration, decentralized/local tools/products/infrastructures, masonry, woodworking, non electric HVAC, functional architecture
Biochar, dense multi use integrated functional post-urban living, refurbishment, refabbing, downscaling, public transit, accessible electric trains & buses, walkable & accessible infrastructures , rainwater catches, milling, waste based biofuel & other practices
This isn’t some opposition to ‘high tech’ either—geothermal/tidal where applicable, solar cells, batteries & wind turbines using recycled minerals, airships, cutting edge ecological & agricultural science, novel energy storage methods, heck transition fusion if it were possible
