Ecology

As humans we are often distanced from the natural world, and our sprawling cities contain very little that is “natural”. This could explain the disregard many have for key issues like population control, or anything else that seeks to limit the deleterious effect humans have on Earths ecosystem.

Many scientists agree that humans are behind the current sixth mass-extinction event on Earth, also called the Holoscene (or human-made) mass-extinction. It is only a matter of time before Earths highly complicated self-regulative (and -protective) mechanisms find a solution to this problem.

Guiding Principles:

General

  • Eco-solutions should be ecological from A to Z 
  • Stop the eco-Holocaust
  • Support eco-activism
  • Coordinate technology (smart cameras, AI, and robots) to remove human junk from environment (land and ocean)

 

Human Overpopulation

  • Advocate population control
  • Maintain a sustainable human population
  • The explosive population growth we see in developing nations is the biggest threat towards Earths ecosystem

 

Biodiversity

  • Wisely regulate animal populations
  • Cultivate biodiversity, and consider use of genetic engineering
  • Climate change is just a distraction from this deeper underlying issue
  • Advocate animal rights
  • Relocate humans living in eco-vulnerable areas
  • Stop and reverse deforestation

 

Ecological Regulation

  • Regarding all eco-projects: carrot > stick
  • Motivate ecofriendly behavior through taxes
  • Promote investments in pro-ecology organizations
  • Make companies financially responsible for any damage
  • Change eco-destructive companies from the inside
    • E.g. employment and shareholder activism

 

Nature as Recreational Space

  • Promote tighter bond between man and nature
    • Can counterbalance negative effects of modernity
  • Freely adventure/camp in areas that are not vulnerable
  • Spread knowledge/use of wilderness survival skills
  • Enforce harsh laws on littering and unnecessary damage

 

Pets

  • See under “Family and Community”

Human Nutrition

  • Use technology to reduce food waste
    • Coordinate between apps and drones/robots 
    • Send food to people in need and social events

Renewable Energy

  • Transition to full use of renewable energy sources
  • Fund innovation in renewable energy
    • E.g. solar, thermal, nuclear, and kinetic
  • Reward “cleaner” actors in fossil fuel industry

Urban Development

  • Encourage public transport and its automation
  • Accommodate urban farming
  • Synthesis between human habitat and nature
  • Disseminate eco-friendly architecture

Resource Optimization

  • Advance towards a more circular economy
  • Make it easy to recycle
  • Reward resource conservation
  • Spread smart-grids
