Is Fukushima The Crisis Without End

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Written by Contributor

 

Is This The Beginning Of The End?  Unfortunately, every single day, over 300 tons of radioactive water enters the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster.  The total amount of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing.  This radioactive material is steadily building up in our food chain and it is having profound impact on our eco system. It will also have a profound impact on the health of human beings across the planet.  The fact is that all of this nuclear radiation will outlive us all and many are starting to realise that the Fukushima and other nuclear disasters represent a crisis without end.  Some experts say that we will never be able to clean up this mess, others say "it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster", but either way, in the mean time countless innocent people will develop cancer and other serious health problems as a result of exposure to these high levels of nuclear radiation.  This is a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is unfortunately getting worse by the day.   The situation demands the immediate mobilization of an international task force to attempt what ever mitigation is possible of this crisis.  Inaction will only guarantee what appears to be an impending environmental disaster of global proportions.  We can not afford a "too little too late approach". The writing is already all over the walls as evidence shows up from multiple sources of wide spread radioactive contamination from Fukushima in North America and beyond.   Watch Sustainable Living Magazine for more stories on the growing impact, the extent of this crisis in the weeks to come.  We will also be speaking to what each of us can do to reduce the impact of this on our lives.  In the mean time listen to what David Sazuki had to say about it.

 

THERE ARE 1000’s OF ELEPHANTS IN OUR ROOM!

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Written by Garnet McPherson

 
THERE ARE 1000’s OF ELEPHANTS IN OUR ROOM! - Experts are saying “The rapid loss of species we are seeing today is estimated to be between 1,000 and 10,000 times higher than the natural extinction rate.”1 That translates into as many as 100,000 species becoming extinct each year. That’s would mean over 270 species disappearing each day and just in the time you picked up this article and began to read it, several species will have left this planet forever!
 
If those scientists are right then I don’t think we need to debate the fact that we have a BIG PROBLEM that not enough people are talking about. The elephant in our room is the huge loss of biodiversity which is occurring at this point in history. The even bigger elephant in the room is that this is but a symptom of the fact that the eco systems that our biosphere depends on, are in grave danger of collapsing.  If unchecked we could bare witness to a mass extinction on this planet like never before.
   

The fundamental failure in environmentalism

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Written by Dr David Suzuki

 
Environmentalism has failed. Over the past 50 years, environmentalists have succeeded in raising awareness, changing logging practices, stopping mega-dams and offshore drilling, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But we were so focused on battling opponents and seeking public support that we failed to realize these battles reflect fundamentally different ways of seeing our place in the world. And it is our deep underlying worldview that determines the way we treat our surroundings.

We have not, as a species, come to grips with the explosive events that have changed our relationship with the planet.
   

Our Oceans In Crisis - New Study

Written by Garnet McPherson

 
LONDON – An international panel of marine experts warns in a report released today that the world’s ocean is at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history.
 
The preliminary report arises from the first ever interdisciplinary international workshop to consider the cumulative impact of all stressors affecting the ocean.  Considering the latest research across all areas of marine science, the workshop examined the combined effects of pollution, acidification, ocean warming, over fishing and hypoxia (deoxygenation).
   

Ray Anderson Lead Business Down A Sustainable Path

Written by The Editor

 

Ray Anderson passed on recently and we lost a great business leader that showed us all that a greener business can be a better busness that shows improved performance on multiple bottom lines.  He earned the SLM Green Hero Award for his work on sustainable busness.

Known for his advanced and progressive stance on industrial ecology and sustainability Ray Anderson was described by many as the greenest CEO in North America. A pioneer and visionary, Ray has lead the way by not only transforming his successful carpet and floor covering company into one of the most sustainable corporations in existence but also by actively sharing his experience with other organizations and government.  We owe Ray a debt of gratitude for setting an example of what can be done to create sustainable organisations that make sence.
