Are we exterminating ourselves?
Far from any conspiracy or approximately theories, all restrictions that are imposed by the regime of the coronavirus, we are about to lose the last stop on the chair. The chair we stood on, a rope around our necks, woven from money. The branch, grown out of greed, to which the rope is attached, is extremely stable. But we are already falling (a little slow motion).
Blind and mute as the dead fish
We know what we are doing? Not at all. After all, even if forecasts, studies for decades are anouncing that irreparable damage is done to nature the way we deal with, like a parasite. , But the moneysystem keeps us blind and mute.
Dulled in consumption
Why? How to can hold still, in view of this apparent destruction of what we love? The destruction of Mother Earth. Are we that numbed in our consumption? Here we meet the crux of the matter. OUR consumption. And h ö ren times. Whowould, protest against himselves? Then he would admit, he is a a pig.
Aren’t we worth living?
But your absolutely right. The thing is much too advanced than that we individually could beresponsible. Euthanasia – the means the extincition of not worty life. Do we have any legitimacy, are we worth living on this planet? This is still a perfect system that has been working to perfection for 4.5 billion, regenerating and changing. We actually functioning and beloved part of this system have ourselves the B ö converted sen. On the earth clock in seconds.
Full of cynical hope
But even if we have almost brought the earth to collapse – look at the dimensions! How often, in the career of the earth, do you think it was before ä similar sized tasks set? So these lines are full of hope. For Earth. Without parasite infestation. For a miracle that changes the bloodsuckers of the body of earth in peacefull creations, living in symbiosis with mother earth.
You are reading these lines. Maybe nod. Bad bad. But in the back of your mind you have: “ Everything is actually fine. I’m good. I am not really concerned. “
We have just a little above sea level over time philosophizing. Well, we share the second of the existence of the human bacteria on Earth again in fractions so we can not only see the end, but can see it happen. Now. We are there, live.
They don’t let us see the whole thing
Would you like a little panorama ? In photography, a panorama shot is an end image composed of many images. Unfortunately we are all sitting in our very own soup pot, the rim is too high and we do not all have the right climbing tools. And they would also like, that we do not have any. So we can only imagine the picture. But information available is really cruel enough.
A survey by the WWF showed a decline in the populations of amphibians, fish, mammals, reptiles and birds by around 70 percent. This was measured for the period between 1970 and 2016. The Red List counts a further 30 percent of all still existing plant and animal species. The causes are extremely complex. There are mentioned the climate crisis, also poaching, of course a despicable overfishing of the seas, the destruction of natural habitats, the habitat by industrialized agriculture.
The WWF board member Eberhard Brandes explains:
“The climate crisis, destruction of habitat, overfishing and poaching: Man just caused the greatest extinction since the end of the dinosaur age. If the earth is sick, also the people are “.
The thawing of Permafrostsoil
Viruses and bacteria in Permafrostsoil
A whole host of little ice beasts. This might be the title of a movie from the SF-Trash 70th. The world, the planet has on its surface that was once so once completely frozen, still many places where the ground more or less completely is frozen in layers. Permafrost under good conditions can exist from 1000 meters upwards.
Also viruses from the modern age
These layers are a kind of deep-freeze ü hlschrank. Here sleep under ideal conservation conditions – low temperatures and almost no oxygen – viruses and bacteria that are millions of years old. But even at the surface ä che lurking dangers. In a mass grave, for example, the corpse of a woman, an Inuit, who was lying there in the frosty ground, was recognized as infected with the Spanish flu. A thawed reindeer caused an anthrax disease (Antrax) in Siberia.
81 percent of Permafrostsoil in the melt
The IPCC measures in permafrost regions above sea level over the past four decades Temperaturh ö waxed values. The Permafrostsoil melts – layer for layer. The prediction of the Institute: The surface-of Permafrostsoils be reduced next decades by up to 81 percent. A particular risk, the scientists see in a compound of the heritage of old and new virus and Bakteria.
Methane escapes into the atmosphere
Another danger emanating from the thawing permafrost is the methane stored there, which is extremely harmful to our atmosphere; it is a powerful greenhouse gas. It is stored in the permafrost, also in bubbles that form. The global melting of glaciers and permafrost also increases the temperature of the oceans and lowers the salinity of the seas.
Polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate or polyamide, these are the substances that are created when the plastic breaks down. For example, an average face mask currently needs more than 30 years before it slowly turns into nanoparticle soup. Every year around 16 million tons of new plastic waste are produced, and it is said that it enters the oceans at 250 kilograms per second. The entry is multiplied by the mask hysteria. The garbage is brought in by industry and households. The consumer behavior of the people, caused by the consumer terror, the media manipulation by the industrial groups in the neo-capitalist system, the greed of the mask manufacturers, are the cause of the uncontrolled flow of poison. “
More plastic than plankton in the oceans
Just a few months ago we crossed a line when it comes to nanoplastics. The concentration of plastic particles has exceeded the 50 percent threshold. So there are now more tiny plastic particles in the sea water than there would be naturally occurring plankton, krill, microorganisms, etc. Plankton, everything it contains, more or less the primordial soup of all life, at the very beginning of every food chain, makes up more than a third of life on our planet.
Nano plastic is everywhere
What is more, these micro- and nanoplastic particles are not only found in seawater. They are distributed in wonderful balance over all that we are. You can find it in food, drinking water, half of the sand on beaches worldwide no longer consists of grains of sand, but rather of tiny plastic balls – of course the plastic can also be detected in humans.
Nano plastic penetrates into cells
We have known for a long time, we found it confirmed by research, that plastic particles are deposited in human and animal fat tissue. Scientists at the German University of Bayreuth have just found out that it also enters the cells of mammals. According to studies by an interdisciplinary research team headed by Prof. Dr. med., Accumulate on the surfaces of the micro and nano plastic particles. Christian Laforsch (Animal Ecology) and Prof. Dr. Holger Kress (Biological Physics) also (in addition to toxic particles, for which the plastic particles are magnetic) also biomolecules.
For the study, the researchers chose microplastic particles with a diameter of around three micrometers. That is the average size of the microparticles that we find everywhere in the environment.
“Spectroscopic studies indicate that the biomolecules are carbohydrates, amino acids, nucleic acids and proteins. We are talking about an ‘eco-corona’ that forms on the microplastic particles in a natural environment, ”
says PhD student Anja Ramsperger M.Sc.
With this layer of biomolecules, the plastic particles, correctly described as a “Trojan horse”, enter the cells.
” The fluorescence labeling of actin filaments it has us erm ö glicht to see exactly which particles were taken up by the cells. Because of spectroscopic methods we could be sure that it is in these particles tats like leisurely to MikroPlastik – more precisely, to polystyrene particles – acted and not to zuf ä -catching impurities ” ,
said Prof. Dr. Holger Kress. He is professor for Biological Physics at the University Bayreuth.

“ Crossing a boundary increases the risk that human activities could inadvertently drive the Earth system into a significantly less hospitable state. This in turn would be a hindrance to efforts to reduce poverty and would also result in a decline in human well-being in many countries of the world – including the affluent countries “
postulates Professor Will Steffen. The scientist goes on to speak of an “irreversible and sudden change in the environment”, of the consequences of which are terrible for mankind: It is estimated that by 2050 more than half a billion people will experience a shortage of water. A gigantic potential for conflict.
Toxic chemistry in agriculture and everyday life
Pesticides – the rich makers
Pesticides, as we find them heaped in the food chain, in our immediate environment, are extremely dangerous because of their very leisurely, time-delayed effect. It has been proven in many studies that they contribute to the development of cancer, they trigger severe allergies, damage the immune system considerably, are able to negatively affect cell division, and change the genetic material.
This is where the hormonal toxins make performance difficult. Bisphonels, plasticizers that surround us everywhere in everyday life. A list of the European Union contains 50 active substances that have been shown to have an absolutely negative influence on the human hormonal system, drastically reduce the number of sperm in men and terribly deteriorate the quality of the sperm material.
Danger for unborn life
The American ” National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences” examined the urine of men and found a worryingly high concentration of metolachlor, alachlor as well as diazinon2 and 4-D atrazine. Just for unborn child its extremely dangeropus, Because in the development of life working with such small concert rations of hormones that every tiny error – eg. B. in determining the gender, can generate faults. Just for these modern pesticides, there is no long-term studies.
Pesticides everywhere you look
The dangers of chemicals – which are no longer just dangers to which we are exposed every day – run through our everyday lives. There are pesticides in the living area, whether furniture or covers, textiles in general. For example, the pyrethroids and chlorpyrifos found in the urine of pregnant women have a negative effect on the nervous system of fetuses. All kinds of chemical residues from production can be found in brand-new laundry, and they also penetrate the body through the skin. Food recalls have been making headlines with increasing frequency in recent months. Here, too, pesticides are mostly the cause.
Prohibited poisons in developing countries
We don’t need to talk about the fact that pesticides are almost indispensable in modern agriculture and – extremely beneficial. The damage it causes is reflected in the examples above. Especially in developing countries, where banned insecticides and poisons are still allowed here, and the users uneducated, this has catastrophic effects on general health.
Poison in gigantic amounts
After all, like plastic, toxic waste also piles up. Much more than half a billion tons of highly toxic concentrates are waiting to be disposed of – and that is only the tip of an unknown large iceberg. So wait on the planet permethrin, many synthetic pyrethroids, cyfluthrin, allethrin, bromophos, carbamate, carbaryl, malathion, propoxur, carbofuran, tons of chlorinated hydrocarbons, lindane, DDT, parathion, many phosphoric acid esters. Dieldrin, heptachlor, simazine, TPT (tri-phenyl-tin), brestan, vinclozoline, phenoxyacetic acids, e.g. 2,4-D and 2,4,5-TMCPA as well as mecoprop and paraquat. Just to name the most important of them.
Fracking, the expansion of the layers of the earth with chemicals to loosen bound oils – probably the most perfidious method to desecrate mother earth. Here greed, the unconditional will, no matter what the cost, to get hold of monetary or whatever kind of wealth, seems particularly violent. For example, the use of
tetramethylammonium chloride, a substance which, according to the safety data sheet, must not enter the environment. 19,000 tons for each fracking process.
Octylphenol is a phenolic resin. Very toxic to water, persistent.
Biocides from the group of isothiazolinones they belong to the highest possible water hazard class and are therefore extremely hazardous to water.
A little piece of the whole
So from the large number of pieces of the puzzle, which in turn are fragmented, we have picked out some that seem particularly opportune. We cannot go into detail about the deforestation of the rainforest in Brazil, the death of birds in Europe, the death of bees, the death of insects, the additional pollution of the oceans by plastic masks or the increasing spread of deserts, the water problem.
The bottom line is that there can’t be a bottom line. We cannot hold still any longer. We are not allowed to close our eyes or ears, we have to call it out, clearly. The fingers must no longer stand still, over the keyboards, the streets must be filled with people who stand for the coexistence of man and mother earth, who have not succumbed to parasitism. Get up at last! Think! Listen! Inform yourself!
