Crisis Extinction – 11:11:11


It appears that the news that we are killing ourselves and the world with our ego, greed and garbage hasn’t sunk in. And on this day 11-11-11, otherwise known as the 11th hour – there is a most important issue facing all of humanity.

The issue is Capitalism, our current money system, the means through which money is profited is literally causing the extinction of more than one quarter of our world’s mammals through deforestation, mining, and depletion of the oceans’ habitats by oil drilling, fishing nets, ship strikes and/or pollution, as well as waste management, just to name a few. Deforestation, mining, hunting and the human lust for more are the prime causes of the rapid decline in land mammals.

Let’s look specifically at one human activitiy for the moment, and how the use of natural resources have a direct impact on the Australian environment for instance, where there’s not enough room and/or nothing left for a species to go back to.

Are we aware who the richest Australian is? Her name is Gina Rinehart and her net worth is 10.3 Billion. She owns all the shares of her father’s mining company, Hancock Mining. Hancock’s discovery of iron ore in Pilbara, Australia, is legendary in mining circles. Australia’s iron ore industry was pretty small scale when ore was discovered in Pilbara.

The question to ask is, why does a select individual/corporation, regardless of who made the discovery hold such an entitlement to what is rightfully the property of planet Earth? Hancock himself is quoted saying, ‘Nowhere have we been educated to understand that everything comes from the earth — you must either mine it, or grow it in the first instance’.

Iron is one of the most abundant minerals in the Earth’s crust and about 98% of iron ore is used to make steel. The problem of the issue is the impact of mining on the environment vs. the necessity of the minerals mined. Mining is very harsh on the environment.To justify just how bad some mining is, producing a single gold ring generates 20 tons of mine waste. And where does that waste go? Into the water, air, land, animals, and even into us.

Mining companies support the current methods of mining for an obvious reason, mining is how they turn a profit. They believe that the benefits of mining (money) far outweigh the disadvantages and are willing to destroy the environment at any cost even it means creating an environment on the brink of extinction – while allowing a select few to profit off of what is provided freely from our Earth for all of us to use as required.

What Earth provides is Not intended to support only a select few of which are profiting and living in abundance while poverty and starvation is increasing at an alarming rate. With Equal Money – this sort of madness will stop.

Do we really require science to reveal the facts to us that 1,139 mammals around the globe are threatened with extinction and the populations of 52 percent of all mammal species are declining. Common sense should be enough, but who cares? We better care because after all, humans are mammals to.

We must ask ourselves how and why we continue to support a corporate economy that is addicted to growth at any cost to life on Earth because the lives at risk is our own. Investigate what is being allowed in this world and consider a solution that will stop corporate greed and bring forth dignity and respect for all inhabitants on earth.

Forests fight back all over the world

Forest = Living examples ‘for- the -rest’ – – "New study released, 5 June 2011 reports, "Forest density is increasing across much of the world after decades of decline, according to a new study by scientists from the United States and Europe.  The change, is being dubbed the Great Reversal."  Woodland density is going up after decades of decline and is worthy of consideration considering deforestation remain." (maybe we ‘cut down’ trees as the expression of ourselves manifested according to how we ‘cut down’ each other silently within our secret mind)

Higher density means our world forests are capturing more carbon.  Forests are Not ‘fighting’ back all over the world.  They have always been here, long before any of us. They don’t determine the value of life according to profit margins.  Trees are simply standing as the actual manifested expression of Oneness and Equality as all of existence.

Human density has grown into social convenience and economical and environmental catastrophes killing that which supports life.  Forests are our ground troops and our frontline protection providing us support  – from ourselves, yet deforestation remains.  Further proof how humanity cannot be trusted to support and value life within our abusive money system.

Live proof of equality, support an Equal Money System – where all living beings are provided for equally.  Abolish the Roots of self interest. Re-align humanity according to and as ‘The Principle of Equality’.

Nature living proof of equality:   A mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.  Forests also acts as a giant filter that cleans the air we breath and also absorb dangerous chemicals and other pollutants that we allow to enter the soil.  Trees either store harmful pollutants or actually change the pollutant into less harmful forms. They filter sewage and farm chemicals, reduce the effects of animal wastes, clean roadside spills and clean water runoff into streams.

Flash flooding can be dramatically reduced by a forest or by planting trees. One Colorado blue spruce, either planted or growing wild, can intercept more than 1000 gallons of water annually when fully grown. Underground water-holding aquifers are recharged with this slowing down of water runoff.
To produce its food, a tree absorbs and locks away carbon dioxide in the wood, roots and leaves.  A forest is a carbon storage area or like a sink that can lock up as much carbon as it produces. This locking-up process ‘stores’ carbon as wood and not as an available greenhouse gas.
