The Dying Of The Trees

Published November 30, 2017 by tindertender

Not only are forests dying rapidly but our food supplies are being affected as well.

Due to the Aerosol spray mixture, soil is contaminated and weakening the forests everywhere. Man made drought in a rainy season. Soil Ph has changed 10 to 12 time toward alkaline, micro organisms killed due to bio available metal contamination.

Dying oak trees is not a new phenomenon. Trees die due to a wide variety of abiotic (non-biological) and biotic (biological) causes. Often death is a result of an interaction of many factors. Abiotic causes can be anthropogenic (human-caused) or natural.

In California’s drought-stricken forests, trees are dying at an “unprecedented” rate, according to officials. The U.S. Forest Service said last month that 102 million trees have died across the state since 2010, including 62 million dead trees in 2016 alone.

The world is home to over three trillion trees—with almost half of them living in tropical or subtropical forests. There are roughly 400 trees for every human. 12,000 years ago, before the advent of agriculture, Earth had twice as many trees as it does now.

Tree density in primary forests varies from 50,000-100,000 trees per square km, so the math would put this number at 3.5 billion to 7 billion trees cut down each year.

Who Gives A Crap?

who gives a crap

“How well do you know her?”, she asks. They are in deep conversation … “She talks about controversial topics, should people listen and care enough, they will make change. They will ask her about waste and she will tell them.” As I listen to this conversation I write it down to ponder the following morning, which is right now.

While here on this planet, it is sacred duty to care for the world. This world grows trees and plants which supply our very next breath. The waters run from deep within the earth and hydrate a body with necessary minerals, and soil also grows nourishing, organic foods which maintain body and mind health.

We see, when we pay attention, what has become of the water supply, the earth bleeds goo as corporations who want to be ‘filthy’ rich suck the life blood from deep with in the planet, this is permitted by others who feel the same as they. The forests which clean the air are hacked down and not replenished, the air overhead is sprayed with chemicals we can only guess of. There are some who have stepped forward to warn us, but they are discredited by the wealthy who own the media, who play the game of destruction.

Who Gives A Crap products are a step in the right direction should we desire to assist in the slowing down of this ruination. My hope is that you, too, care enough to evaluate your life and make changes where you can. These changes need not be dramatic, they can be as small as recycling, buying used and refurbished items, turning off the lights when not in use, growing your own food, distilling your own water and using stainless steal drinking containers rather than purchasing plastic bottles of stolen waters. Small changes such as observing your speech throughout the day and then deciding if these are the seeds you truly wish to plant in this world for future generations.

What examples will you embody and then give to the world?

Tree Sister, Inside You

Published October 28, 2017 by tindertender

Inside you,
In the places where whispers carry
Memories
Where you hold your breath
Turn away
And believe yourself less,
There is a truth.
A truth as gentle as a melody,
As limitless as the sky,
As honest as a mountain lake,
No push, no need to try,
A truth that shimmers with the light of you,
The bright of you
The irrepressible delight of you,
The take my breath away flight of you,
The I will not go silently into the night of you,
The ‘Oh my God’, just feel the might of you,
The break me wide open sight of you,
When at last you have embraced all of you,
Accepted the day and night of you,
The luminescent, spontaneous grace of you,
I want you to know I’m in awe of you
All of you,
every microcosmic,
wild orgasmic inch of you
Every wild unfettered gesture of alive of you
Thank you
Thank you
For you.

What Will We Do?

Published October 24, 2017 by tindertender

It’s 3:23 in the morning, and I’m awake
because my great, great, grandchildren won’t let me sleep.
My great, great, grandchildren ask me in dreams,
what did you do, while the planet was plundered?
What did you do, when the earth was unravelling?
Surely you did something when the seasons started failing,
as the mammals, reptiles, and birds were all dying?
Did you fill the streets with protest when democracy was stolen?
What did you do once you knew?

Renewable Resources

Published October 10, 2017 by tindertender

I have logger friends who no longer speak to me. They think I’m a tree hugging nut. They are adamant about the trees being ‘renewable resources’.  My questions to them is:

“Out of all the trees you have cut down how many have you planted to take their place?” Before you answer with, That is someone else’s department … another question I have is: “Have you held that ‘other department’ accountable to do their part?” and “Do you care that they have not?”

Anger abounds from a man who is trying to feed his family, he may think that tree lovers are trying to take away his livelihood, and this simply is not the case.

The trees are our next breath. If they are not replenished in a manner that is sustainable for the planet, then we are killing ourselves, and those we claim to love. This is the real issue.

campfire

I love a campfire, roasting marshmallows, and the woods as much as the next person. I love having wood to burn in my fireplace in the winter, however, balance is needed, and it is obvious, there is none.

Rather than warring with each other, we ought to work together … different aspects of the whole, to ensure that what we do is balanced and good for all.
