    the victim They plead with the man asking him to save the victim by stopping the shooting The man says Don t worry I will save him by changing technology He replaces the old gun with a new one And continues to shoot Environment has been destroyed by Industrial Activity Trying to save environment without stopping Industrial Activity is like Trying to save a victim of shooting by shooting him even more Trying to save a victim of stabbing by stabbing him even more Trying to save a victim of poisoning by giving him even more poison Height of Insanity Abnormality and Criminality You cannot save environment by destroying more of it Industrial Society has been destroying Extra environment for 250 years It has been destroying environment for thousands of consumer goods and services in addition to food clothing and shelter You cannot save a person after killing him You cannot save environment after it has been killed by Industrial Activity The entire Industrial Society deserves the Nobel Prize for Lunacy for pretending that environment is getting saved when the reality is that Industrial Society has been destroying extra environment after industrialization and has destroyed so much extra environment in 250 years that there is hardly any environment left to save There is only one cause of environmental destruction Industrialization Industrialization was the biggest crime on earth The biggest act of killing murder and terrorism A Hunter Gatherer Society of 7 billion would have destroyed very little environment because it would have destroyed environment only for food An Agrarian Society of 7 billion would have destroyed very little environment compared to an Industrial Society of 7 billion because it would have destroyed environment only for food clothing and shelter Industrial Society of 7 billion has destroyed most of the Biodiversity and Ecosystems in just 250 years after industrialization because it destroyed environment for Thousands of consumer goods and services in addition to food clothing and shelter A Hunter Gatherer Society would have never reached a population of 7 billion An Agrarian Society would have never reached a population of 7 billion World population increased from 1 billion in 1800 to 7 billion in just about 200 years after industrialization In the absence of industrialization world population would have been only a small fraction of 7 billion today For the last 50 years Intellectuals have been debating what is good for Environment Capitalist Industrial Society Communist Industrial Society or Socialist Industrial Society This is like debating what is good for people Capitalist Poison Communist Poison or Socialist Poison Poison kills people it doesn t matter who made it Capitalism Communism or Socialism Industrial Activity kills ecosystems It doesn t matter which system runs it Capitalism Communism or Socialism All Industrial Activity destroys environment Mining Industry Logging Industry Energy Generation Industry Manufacturing Industry Transportation Industry Construction Industry Recycling Industry Oil Drilling Oil Refining Millions of kilometers of Rail Road network Air Routes and Shipping Lanes they all destroy environment It doesn t matter which system runs it Capitalism Communism or Socialism American Industrial Activity has destroyed ecosystems Russian Industrial Activity has destroyed ecosystems Chinese Industrial Activity has destroyed ecosystems Indian Industrial Activity has destroyed ecosystems Every Industrial Society destroys ecosystems It does nt matter which system runs it Capitalism Communism or Socialism In just 250 years Industrial Society has destroyed 75 90 of Biodiversity and Ecosystems Forests Wild Animals and Fish Population Population of Lions Tigers and Elephants is down to 2 5 of what it was 100 years ago Population of Large Fish in Oceans is down to 10 of what it was 100 years ago Industrial Society has poisoned the entire planet with Trillions of Tonnes of Metal Waste Plastic Waste Chemical Waste Gaseous Waste eWaste Nuclear Waste It has killed Trillions of Animals in Industrial Slaughter Houses and billions of acres of Fertile Soil with Cement Concrete and Asphalt Discussion cannot save environment Money cannot save environment Technology cannot save environment Environmental Organizations cannot save environment Activism cannot save environment Animal Species and Hunter Gatherer Society did not save environment through discussion They did not even have a language for discussing environmental issues Animal species and Hunter Gatherer Society did not save environment with money They had no money Animal species Hunter Gatherer Society and Agrarian Society did not save environment with modern technology They had no modern technology It was absence of modern technology that saved environment in pre industrial societies Over exploitation of ecosystems became possible only because of Industrial Machines Animal species Hunter Gatherer Society and Agrarian Society did not save environment with the help of Environmental Organizations or Activism They had no environmental organizations Animal Species did not destroy environment for millions of years Hunter Gatherer Society destroyed very little environment during a million years of existence Agrarian Society destroyed very little environment compared to Industrial Society over a period of 10 000 years There is only one way to save environment Destroy less Minimize the list of things that are destroying environment Promoters of Growth rate Economy

Qaeda No bounty on the heads of people who promoted Industrialization Consumerism Growth Rate Economy Rate and GDP that has led to destruction of most of the Biodiversity and Ecosystems on earth It

    in Measuring Biological Diversity by Anne Magurran The problem is that many of my samples have only one individual of each species present in them I ve noticed that when this is the case no matter how many species are present 1 D 1 which seems to suggest that diversity is at the maximum level possible In the spreadsheet I ve put a link to below I ve calculated an example containing 7 species and an example containing just 2 species It seems strange that the resulting 1 D should be the same for both of these I was wondering whether I should accept this as correct and record 1 D as 1 for both of these cases regardless of how strange it seems If anyone could let me know what is normally done in this situation I d be very grateful Thank you very much https www dropbox com s uivowprjfym1gjz simpsons png Reply with quote ac2012 ac2012 Posts 2 Joined Wed Sep 05 2012 11 06 am Wed Sep 12 2012 4 14 pm Sorry that should have been the complement not the reciprocal 1 D Reply with quote animartco animartco Posts 117 Joined Sat Jan 21 2012

    a concrete example of how this energy can get to the decomposers I think this can get to the decomposers because the biomass simply dies E g dead animals dead trees etc 2 The amount of energy that is represented by R may end up with the decomposers in different ways Name three ways I can come up with natural cell dead dissimilation after assimilation 3 The energy that is
