A great week for all!
Today, briefly, an opportunity to help nature.
The habitat loss is one of the greatest ecological problems we have with the biggest impact on Earth. It is evidence that our productive systems are advancing over our lands, transforming its landscape, draining the soil, chopping down forests, sowing and reaping, taking and selling (to outside).
(This next image shows the loss of massive forests in the south of Brazil in 30 years)
Ultimately, the habitat loss implies a reduction in the biological diversity –the gift Evolution left us throughout millennia- as well as leaving behind “patches” in the Earth, a patch where energy does not flow in the same way anymore. Energy coming from the Sun and from the organisms who decompose decaying plants, animals, insects and other forms of life for grasses, shrubs, trees, that sustain the ecosystem, the field over which predators chase their prey.
All those relations are lost when dismantling the ecosystem, by chopping down and taking away in order to plant only one type of cultivation, where the energy flows linearly towards the cultivation chosen, eliminating competition.
It is us the ones who need to help to regulate those patches, in order nature does not fall apart.
There is a project in our country which pretends to flood 8.000 hectares to plant rice and soy in Corrientes. Us, south Americans, are used to hypothecate our happiness, our resources, our nature, our land and home, only because world trade demands it. Almost all the trash food we consume –because we do not have time, we are always in a rush and we don’t have time to sauté some vegetables or prepare a salad with products from the local market. “I do not have time for going to the greengrocer’s of the neighbourhood; I buy everything in the SUPER-market, where they sell me everything from everywhere”- has a soy derivative.
In this link you can find information on the Ayuí river and the forests that bring life to its shores… it is a spectacular ecosystem which we must defend.
The site states: “Rivers in Argentina are a public good; it would be the first time a business appropriates a river, for its own benefit. Could then other companies do the same and take possession of any river in our country?”
Of course not… if you can share this information it would be great, in order to help our correntinian brothers, argentines, latinamericans, bah!, humans, to defend our nature.
Let us save the Ayuí river together!
Until next week!
