September 26, 2019. I read recently that the US is showing signs of being ready for a revolution. Right now I believe we can solvethings without violence. One of the things I am not seeing these days is respect. People are angry and dismissive. If someone has a different opinion than yours, they are wrong andterrible people. They are called terrible names . We have to respect one another and listen to what we have to say. I don’t much like our president. His language is unacceptable and I dislike the way he exagerates things. Puerto Rico is part of the United States and should have been treated better after the last big hurricane. Our president is dismissive of native peoples. When he wanted to buy Greenland, he did not ask the people of Greenland who own Greenland, he asked Denmark who help the native people manage their country. At any rate I don’t much like our President, but my sister in law and nephew do. Maybe they see something I don’t. We are all human beings and deserving of respect. Not rembering this leads to violence. I’m not asking for agreement just respect.
Pollution of the oceans needs to stop. The oceans are dying, and we have no right to continue to kill them. If we wish to live, eat and breathe, we need to care for the oceans. I believe that living things have rights. They have a right to live and to an environment in which they can live. We do not know enough about the environment to know what is necessary for human survival. New life offers new chemistry which means new treatments in medicine and we haveexplored less than ten percent of the oceans. We are part of the natural world. If we alter it too much, we will die. We need oxygen to breathe, and food to eat, and both will be reduced when the oceans die. The largest brains on the planet live in the oceans. There is a good chance that whales and dolphins can talk to each other. If the oceans die so will they. We all have and continue to use the oceans as toilets. This is not an expression it is truth, look it up for yourself. We litterally pee and poo and toss billions of tons of garbage into the oceans each year. There are continent size islands of garbage in our oceans. Every beach in the world is covered in garbage. If you know of one that is not, it is cleaned. I have heard it said that noone should eat more than three meals per week from the oceans to allow your body to deal with the poisons. I laugh when I hear sea salt used to indicate purity, oil, medicinal waste, feces, urine, mercury, pesticides, bacteria, lead, you name it, if it is bad, it is in the oceans. To those who say that we cannot have an effect on the oceans, I say do the research. We have been overfishing the oceans since the middle ages. Columbus was not the first to cross the Atlantic, Portugese fishermen were sailing to North America to fill their nets. Once again, look it up.
In the Atacama dessert, people obtained about a liter per day of fresh water from a square meter of ground covered in glass and set to catch condensation. There are ways to get water from the air. There is no reason for anyone to go thirsty. People should not be allowed to be hungry or thirsty. That people are hungry and thirsty is a shame for us all.
