Fixing this planet

Healing the damage done to the Earth is indeed possible, but it requires a collective effort and a shift in human priorities towards environmental sustainability.
The Earth is somewhat resilient, but human activities have pushed it to the brink in many ways.
We have polluted air, water, and land, destroyed habitats, caused mass extinctions, and most alarmingly, triggered very difficult to predict climate change consequences as Mother Nature voices her anger at us.
Whilst our planet can heal itself over time, the rate of damage currently exceeds any self-healing capacity it might have.
Reversing the harm humans have done to this planet is the most pressing challenge we must overcome if we would like to continue living on this planet for a very long time.
The only way to stop exacerbating the problems we’ve caused is to transition rapidly to dependable cleaner energy sources such as nuclear and methane gas fired power stations.
People can talk all they want about solar and wind power but if we use Australia as an example, solar panels typically receive 4 to 6 hours of peak sunlight daily, with the peak hours occurring between 10 am and 3 pm. These are the periods when your solar panels produce the most power.
Also using Australia as an example for wind turbine power generation, on average, a wind turbine will generate electricity for approximately 6 hours per day.
These hours typically fall between 10 am and 4pm, when wind speeds are optimal. Sure, we need to keep in mind that specific start and finish times can vary based on the location and season but it’s just not a lot is it.
For my mind, the first thing we need to do is to sort out power generation and lock that solution away for the next 50 years and then our efforts can be freed up to do more important tasks.
Addressing other environmental issues, such as pollution, habitat loss, and biodiversity decline requires huge investment via a multi-pronged approach.
We must reduce plastic use where possible but more importantly we need to properly recycle it and by that I mean that the plastics we use must become the feedstock of new plastics to be made.
I’m referring to advanced recycling technologies, also known as feedstock recycling.
Mixed plastic waste is collected and screened, contaminants are removed, and the plastics are shredded into pellets. Plastics are then subjected to supercritical heat and chemistry in a reactor.
The other way is via advance gasification technology such as Sierra Energy’s FastOx Gasification, this converts any type of plastic into gaseous feedstock that is called Synthetic Gas or Syngas.
So now we’ve sorted out clean reliable energy and plastics.
We then move on to fixing the ecosystems we’ve damaged and try to further species extinctions, so let’s stop building cities and towns in locations where natural fauna and flora needs to be decimated to do so. We don’t need to build concrete jungles on top of good land areas, let’s build our new cities on the worst land areas and then simply fix those areas to suit our habitation of them.
Crucially, actions that will fix this planet require a shift in human priorities and a willingness to make sacrifices for the greater good of the planet.
We must move beyond short-term self-interests and embrace a more compassionate and holistic approach that considers the well-being of all life on Earth.
