The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will protect it! Why are we losing our natural habitats at such a worrying pace? What are some of the main triggers causing the destruction? Here are some key facts that highlight the root of the issue:
Cut forests are considered commercially more valuable than standing forests
Net Present Value of a plantation is $5,000 to $17,000 per hectare v/s $2,750 for a forest - McKinsey
Every human on this planet has a sizeable carbon footprint
At the moment there are limited offset models available. The world generates 2.01* billion tonnes of waste annually
85% of humanity lives in countries that run an ecological deficit - a negative intergenerational equity
We are running out of earth!
110+ countries have signed up to reduce their net carbon emissions to zero by 2050
Taken as a whole, the range of published evidence indicates that the net damage costs of climate change are likely to be significant and to increase over time
The Protectors of the forests (NGO’s, indigenous people, Governments) v/s the Consumers of the forests (Agriculture, Timber, Animal husbandry, etc)
A vast gap in technology, capital markets and management practices make the odds incredibly imbalanced
Wonderful insight to Nature’s creation.This is truly the best connect with our Nature.
Love the idea we need to return the earth to what it was in more places. Humans have changed things in the past but not always in good way.
Extremely insightful; shows how granular we must approach our environment. Thank you Sacred Groves!
