The 50 men who can save the world by Green ecological strategies
The Guardian on the 5th Jan 2008 published the 50 people who can save the planet earth and justified why they could save the world. In this article I would like to review the flawed sensibility of that article published by The distinguished Guardian focused on the Green ecological strategies that could save the world as a watered down review of the serious matter. Six reasons reasons why this is so.
1)Green ecological strategies
Firstly the people listed were mostly those who championed the green ecological strategies to avoid the destruction of the world such as loss of trees,melting of the icebergs, Green ecological Architect, extinction of whales , tigers in the Eco system and the Eco city planned by English engineer.
The basis of argument forged seems presumptuous and shallow. In fact a reputable newspaper should not have attempted a shallow major undertaking of such without responsibilities.As these articles has been often quoted as if they were truth.
2)No Proof of global warming in Green ecological strategies
As of today the weather changes and the causes global warming caused by CO2 emission is still a not a establish fact, Scientists are divided on this matter and some has suggested the weather changes is another grandiose hoax.The reasons for deluge of calamities, inundating floods, disaster , diseases etc have never be connected to as a divine messages from divinity for the human discordance with divinity, was never considered or even trying to establish the reasons by scientific means of the reasons for the global issues. At least or perhaps was the Guardian should have attempted to establish the facts by convergence of scientist instead choose to select Hollywood ;s Leonardo Di Caprio sudden awareness of the ecological disaster .
3.) Qualified men but no clout in Green ecological strategies
Thirdly the world cannot be saved by some burst of exuberance for Green ecological strategies of some unheard school child raising funds ( USD7,600) of the extinction of tigers in India or African Minister preaching the planting of some ten thousands of planting of trees or a Civil Engineer following a design brief , which in the first place which was not even his ideas but of the Chinese officials to building an Eco city in China and as if the prototype city , will take be an example for all the world.For now the success of the Eco city has yet to even been proven.
4.)Men of Green ecological strategies who have spurious agendas
Fourthly men such as the spurious Al Gore who made riches out of the global warming agenda, Leonardo Di Caprio who had a reputation for ecological destruction of a beach for the show The Beach, Green ecological architect Ken Yeang –”who has not arrived yet” of what he preaches or an Indian school boy who raised USD7.600 and men who preach savings carbon emission but live a hypocrite luxurious heavy carbon foot print -are be able to influence the world to bring the changes in the global weather changes . Do these men covered with deception and falsehood have sufficient clout to bring changes which may have no eventual effect.
5.)Multi faceted strategies in multi faceted Green ecological strategies
Fifthly the Green ecological strategies solutions seems is the only solutions to save the world from its impending dangers. Should not there be a multi faceted combinations of many strategies ranging collaboratively from the sciences, computer technologies, ecological,engineering, urban planning, architectural ,innovations and modern technologies that will bring s solutions to our problems.
No one person or knowledge, skill or group will have sufficient clout to save the world, for instance the Indian had knowledge of the atom for thousands of years but thus singular body of knowledge was not sufficient to save the Indians from famines, hungers, floods and destruction they endured for many years. As such no one single knowledge is able to save humanity and no ecological strategies alone is able to save the destruction that is so imminent .It takes a combine effort and combined human effort- the Net Zero Energy architects, Net Zero Energy town and urban planers, the ecologist, the environmentalist, the engineer, the innovation, scientist,medical discoveries, the financial systems, the bankers, the builders, every groups of peoples to come together to be aware of the failures and ring the changes in a concerted effort.
6.)Prejudiced Facade of Green ecological strategies
Finally the article indicates that that only 5 men from the US were qualified , as if this really mattered if it where these men were from, but it seems to matter most in this article matters it was a form of whipping the US.for such a pitiable performance.. The whole article seems like a prejudiced facade .
Perhaps we can learn a lesson or two from the American Founding Fathers seeking in prayer. for divine help after weeks of not being able to solve the constitution , they sought to prayer and all have attested o the fact they had received divine help. The leaders of the world could do this, humbling enough to find access to the above and find a solution to our problems. After all is it not that the 1% of inspiration of the 99% perspiration that constitutes a genius.
Even if divine help is not reachable, the disasters can be sustainable not alone by Green and sustainable solutions but by our preparedness for the worst.And our only survival will also depend on how we are self reliant , not dependence on the utility companies or ecologist for saving the world, but our own preparedness for survival, we should be self reliant. Where w e are organically dependent , which is Net Zero energy strategies, off the grid, self reliant of water supply from the utility companies, Independence of waste water and sewerage disposal ). This should apply to us a building or as a city.Our cities should be Net Zero Cities, every building should be Net Zero Energy Building
