Every Day, Four Plant Species Face Extinction
This alarming trend is only a small part of what scientists call the sixth extinction, a massive wipeout of species not seen since the end-Cretaceous period.

Ang Pilipinas ay tanyag sa kanyang mataas na antas ng "biodiversity", ngunit tanyag din tayo sa pagwasak nito. Kailangan ng mga tao at kilusan upang pangalagaan ito, hanggang nandyan pa siya. Pagnawala ang isang uri ng halaman, hindi na ito maibabalik.

2nd Agos Ram Pump System Installed in Sagada, Mountain Province

2nd Agos Ram Pump System Installed in Sagada, Mountain Province | Earth Citizens Perspective | Scoop.it

This mountain barangay in Sagada used to depend on the rainy season for planting crops on their "terraces" vegetable and rice fields. With the installation of a ram-pump system, farmers of Barangay Bokong will now enjoy irrigation water the whole year round.

The economy of the community is expected to get a big boost, as year-long free flowing water will now be pumped up, 85 meters from the low-lying river, without fuel or electricity, to a 60,000 liter reserve tank which supplies water to several hectares of upland agricultural land.

This is the second such project, the first one was in Tiguisan, Negros Oriental. This project is a product of the teamwork between Coca-Cola Foundation as the funder, AIDFI as the engineering crew and Earth Day Network Philippines as the project manager. There will be more such projects within the next 2 years.

Ito ay hindi nakapagtataka dahil sa disiplina ng mga Hapones. Seryoso ang mga Hapones sa pagresikolo kaya nagawa nila ito.

Plastic Recycling Technology Today: The Industrial War Against Plastic Pollution

Plastic Recycling Technology Today: The Industrial War Against Plastic Pollution | Earth Citizens Perspective | Scoop.it
Recycling plastic is something that we are always told to do by environmental awareness social groups.

 

Mayroon nang mga teknolohiya na kayang magresikolo ng plastik bilang isang industriya. Ang problema lang, hindi nito kaya maghiwalay ng plastik mula sa basurang nakahalo dito para maresikolo. Kailangan pa ding magbukod-bukod para mapakinabangan ang plastik sa pagresikolo nito sa iba't ibang produkto.

The old floppy disc with the mysterious film inside has been successfully outmoded with the advent of compact discs. It did not take a host of alternatives to phase that one out.

Sa bilyong CD na hindi na pwede sulatan ulit o minsan lang ang gamit, ano ang gagawin natin dito kapag ayaw na natin itago? Basura na ba ito?

Clean Laundry … What About Water?

Clean Laundry … What About Water? | Earth Citizens Perspective | Scoop.it
Clean laundry, a given in the modern-day world, but do we consider the effect laundry washing has on water resources? As part of urban wastewater, laundry water eventually finds its way to natural water resources.

Naisip niyo ba kung ano ang nangyayari sa tubig panlaba? Ano ang epekto ng sabon sa ating pangkalahatang tubig? Huwag nating tingnan lamang ang labada, kundi pati ang maduming tubig na pinaglabahan. Lilinis kaya ito ulit?

Aussie Gov't '09 Report Predicts Peak Oil at 2017

A study of peak oil conducted by the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) for the Australian Government was completed in 2009 and then buried. The study was leaked on Jan.

 

Ang ibig sabihin, ang pinakamataas na lebel ng produksyon ng iba't ibang uri ng langis ay mangyayari sa taong 2017. Pagkatapos nito, paubos na ang langis, pero hindi naman bigla. Ang maaaring mangyari, tataas ang presyo nito kasi paubos na.

Our world economy always talks about gains in the form of raw value earned.

 

Isang magandang pananaw ang pagtingin sa kalikasan bilang mga pagawaan ng mga likas yaman na kailangan ng mundo. Bakit natin wawasakin ang mga pagawaang ito na nagbibigay sa atin ng hangin, tubig, pagkain, kahoy, atbp. ng libre?
