A few years ago I wrote the post that is linked at the bottom of this page. I was trying to get at the problem that, in the media, extreme weather events and the damage they cause are often tied exclusively to climate change. There is little discussion of the role farming, mining, and logging play in the destruction caused by floods, nor are droughts connected to deforestation. Extreme temperatures are sometimes linked to endless asphalt and concrete sprawls or countless square miles of denuded land, but more often blamed simply on global warming.
Well said. Another example: the bad effects wind turbines have on bat and bird populations.
what are your thoughts on popularizing more niche issues that have a more immediate and tangible effect like restoring beavers for water retention and local biodiversity initiatives? These ideas are often implemented only in areas already reserved for wildlife and not many consider how much of a difference it would make if people would implement some conservation measures on their private land.
Love this share deeply!! Also, the wetlands/nature/river pics are heavenly!! Thank you!
