Ismail marboul's curator insight, October 8, 2016 11:05 AM

my insight is that countries should take in to consideration the effects of air pollution around the world and what they can do to prevent them as the cause of climate change can also link to the increase in air pollution in the world.a huge cause of this is human activities.They have been highlighted as the major causes of air pollution, especially in the cities. To support a larger population, there's a need for energy production, transportation, and industries, resulting in the emission of harmful chemicals into the atmosphere. A list of the human causes of air pollution includes vehicles, domestic smoke and heating, aircraft pollution, outdoor fires, and incineration of waste. To reduce the problems of air pollution, people should be more aware of their actions in these areas.

India: Selling Out To Monsanto. GMOs and the Bigger Picture

India: Selling Out To Monsanto. GMOs and the Bigger Picture | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it

 On 15 August, India will mark its 67th anniversary of independence from Britain. It may seem strange to some that a nation would publicly celebrate its independence while at the same time it less publicly cedes it to outsiders. The gleaming façade of flags and fly-pasts will belie the fact that national security and independence do not depend on military might and patriotic speeches. Eye-catching celebrations will take place in Delhi and much of the media will mouth platitudes about the strength of the nation and its independence. The reality is, however, an ongoing, concerted attempt to undermine and destroy the very foundation and security of the country."

Garry Rogers's insight:

It is painful to compare old films of India's hopeful, jubilant national attitude and plans for a great future after independence, with conditions today.  We underestimated the power of human nature, especially our innate desires and fears.  Some of the worst elements of our nature are desire to reproduce, desire for wealth,fear of competitors, and fear of strangers.
