Earth is improving due to human impact

Today is Earth Day, and everyone is going green — even Mother Nature!

Research published in Nature says the earth has gotten greener in the past two decades.

Scientists from #Australia, #Amsterdam and #China studied #vegetation over the past two decades and found that while tropical #forests have declined, that loss was made up by increases in mixed forests and tropical #savannahs and #shrublands.

Since 2003, forests in #Russia and #China have expanded and tropical #deforestation has declined, the report says, adding that the savannahs of northern #Australia and southern #Africa have also shown an increase in aboveground #biomass #carbon (basically, plant matter).

The loss of the #rainforest is still something to be concerned about, the scientists said. But the increase in overall vegetation could help counteract #climate change, since plants absorb the #carbon dioxide that is released into the air via #fossil #fuels.

Yay for good ol’ Mother Nature!

It's Earth Day — and climate change or not, the planet is still getting greener

New forests and shrublands make up for any decline in tropical rain forests and counteract fossil fuels, scientists say.

What is our future?



In distributed systems, where there is no overt hierarchy, power is a function of design.



Peer Governance and Democracy tends toward a stakeholder model, with active participants directing decisions, but also incorporating an auto-immune system to prevent the private appropriation of power.



People all over the planet are using the interconnection afforded by technology to forge a new society – a society built from the ground up, rather than governed from the top down.



We are realising the failures of democracy, and forging our own systems of fairness.



We are starting to distrust the mass media.



We are growing tired of our governments.



We are losing interest in state led education, instead choosing to learn based on what inspires us, because we no longer need the authorities to provide for us.
