Environmental Transformation Actions

Environmental Transformation Action Plans.

major environmental problems

Environmental transformation refers to a fundamental, systemic shift in how we interact with and relate to issues that exist with fixing the many environment issues with our planet.

It is a way of allowing us to move away from patterns of scaring people into complying with the noise made by people with extreme views tat look to exploit and degrade rather than help and encourage.

We can fix the many environmental issues we face via small manageable chunks.  A measured and manageable approach is required and this will allow for greater participation with projects aligned with sustainability, regeneration, and biodiversity harmony.

A Holistic Approach Towards Environmental transformation.

Transformation implies gradually addressing environmental issues not just through trying to do things at the extreme ends of the scale.   We don’t benefit from trying to fix everything at once, nor do we benefit from piecemeal actions that cause people to lose faith.

By gradually transforming the underlying systems, mindsets, and structures that have led to environmental degradation, we can actually witness change and get excited about our progress.

It involves workable changes in policies, technologies, economic models, consumption patterns, and cultural values.

Long-Term And Gradual Environmental Corrections.

The term “transformation” suggests a process that unfolds over time, rather than a sudden or abrupt change. It recognizes that achieving environmental sustainability is a complex and multi-faceted endeavour that requires persistent and incremental efforts.

Change the way we think and talking about things relating to the environment via:

1.    Positive framing: “Environment Correction Actions” usually have big sense of urgency, sacrifice and burden associated with them.  This can be off-putting to some stakeholders.  Environment Transformation Actions on the other hand, has a more positive connotation, implying growth, progress, and the creation of something new and better.

2.   Inclusive and collaborative: Environmental transformation emphasises the need for collective participation and collaboration among various sectors, including governments, businesses, civil society, and individuals. It recognises that no single entity can solve environmental challenges alone and that a shared vision and coordinated efforts are necessary.

3.   Regenerative and restorative: Rather than simply mitigating or minimising environmental damage, transformation often aims to gradually restore and regenerate natural systems, fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between humans and the environment.

In essence, environmental transformation suggests a holistic, gradual, positive, inclusive, and restorative approach to addressing environmental challenges.

Let’s move away from having a narrow or extreme focus on isolated environmental actions and planet fixing measures.

We need to start acknowledging that sustained changes will come from eating away at any negative deep-rooted poor behaviour we’ve had for many years.  If we work to change perceptions, change our thinking and better interact with the natural world, we can ensure future generations will be able to enjoy our planet more than what we can possibly imagine that the moment

The Planet Fixing Tasks We Face Are Many & Varied.

Every species on this planet is impacted by environmental issues like air pollution, species extinction rates, desertification, overpopulation, fresh water scarcity, deforestation, ground water contamination, burying billions of tonnes of rubbish into the ground (waste management) and varying levels of climate change.

Our environment has deteriorated at an alarming rate over the last century and humans have continued to deplete the planet’s resources as if everything good in the world we break was able to fix itself whilst we sleep.

Over the last couple of decades, horrific disasters such as bushfires, droughts, flooding, earthquakes, tsunamis, and cyclones have become more intense and more common.  

A lot of us feel as though we humans are responsible for a good portion of this.  Maybe this is true, maybe it’s not but there’s no point trying to fix all of these things at once.   For one thing, that’s just not possible.

We need to closely examine what we’ve been doing to this planet, why we’ve been doing it, how we’ve been doing it and when have we done it.

We need to be Rational Thinking Humans when it comes to developing an action plan for fixing the many issues that we’ve created and the flow on effects that our actions have instigated.

Let’s not waste time and money pointing fingers at who has being doing things in the past, let’s look at what they can do better today.

There will not be many of the 7.7 billion people on this planet that hasn’t done something that would have been at least somewhat negative towards the environment. 

Whatever it was, you are forgiven but let’s do better today and tomorrow.

To fix this planet we humans will need to start giving up on some of our ideal situations, self-appointed sense of entitlement and what we consider to be a luxurious experience.

There will be many of us out there that have been chipping away at the problems for many years, but the impact of a few thousand people doing small/tiny environmentally conscious deeds is insufficient, barely scratching the surface of the problem.

We need bigger but completely manageable changes via transformational projects.

We have done far too much damage to ignore our responsibilities but let’s start doing things in a way that attracts success.

For starters, fixing the planet costs a lot of money, we need to find the money required to be green.

There are many aspects of the lives we live today that will almost certainly need to live without in order to have any meaningful impact on the healing and preservation of this planet.

For example, if we continue to overfish the oceans and cannot be convinced to stop eating fish, there then there may not be any fish about in 30 years from now for us to argue on this subject about.

A simple and small change such as ‘Stop Eating Fish Today’ could be one of the greatest things a person will ever do in their lives.

The reality is that only people with a strong sense of right and wrong will do the right thing and sadly, 25% of the population will be interested in environmental issues, while 75% will not.

So anyone attempting to apply the right amount of change in the right areas will unfortunately face opposition from three out of every four people.

Sadly, too many humans just will not care what about happens to the planet until it is on the verge of becoming uninhabitable.

It’s frustrating to have this feeling that only when people’s lifestyles have been sufficiently impacted by the planet’s destruction will they want to do anything.  

At which time I can only imagine the huge noise that result from all of the wailing and whining from those who refused to help back when they had the chance.

Let’s all prove me wrong and start doing some environmental transformation activities today and ever day from now on.

What type of things could we start doing?

1.   Eliminate use of harmful pesticides, find eco-friendly alternatives.

2.   Stop killing marine species, stop whaling, stop killing dolphis because you think they are eating too many fish, stop Supertrawlers from being allowed to operate and work out what we can do to start repopulating our oceans, seas, rivers, lakes etc with what fish and other marine species we’ve got remaining.

3.   Repurpose, recycle and process our waste into things we can use instead of dumping it in landfills and poisoning the ground and the water tables.

5.   Clean the oceans of all current plastic pollution and start chemically recycling all plastics via technologies such as Licella’s CAT-HTR.

6.   Switch to bio-fuels, make electric conversions cheaper and rollout hydrogen vehicles after creating substantial amount of hydrogen gas for fuel.

7.   Accept that new nuclear power technologies are the only solution for power generation, and then obviously switch to Nuclear Power everywhere possible.

8.   Converting all super trawlers we band on this planet into whale watching vessels.  I’m sure we can find a few eco-friendly uses for these vessels of death.

9.   Start greening of the deserts projects.

10.   Improve soil structure and stop actions that lead toward desertification of the planet.

11.   Grow billions of trees instead of acting like we hate trees.

12.   Repair the water cycle.

13.   Reduce air pollution.

14.   Stop killing sharks because of their fins or because you are scared of them.  Instead, lean more about them via conservation programs such as underwater shark watching tours, we need to learn how to live with sharks.  Let’s not ever have a world without sharks.

Unfortunately, most people will find it difficult to devote time and money to the healing of the planet.   It just won’t fit in with their busy schedules most likely.

Put aside what you may have been thinking for many years. 

Today is the absolute best day to start trying to be better and to help with environmental transformation projects near where you live.

People must begin voting with their wallets/bank accounts, shifting their financial support away from companies and products that are destroying the planet and towards those that are helping to fix it.

 Challenge what you see on labels in supermarkets; there are many companies that claim to be doing the right thing, but this is rarely the case.

Don’t let them have your money just because they are appearing to be green that is not a sufficient reason to sponsor them, as Thomas Edison once said, “seeming to do is not doing.”
