Correct me if I'm wrong, the liquid fuel we use in our vehicle's needs air to burn, for every gallon of fuel we use, we destroy 14,700 gallons of air!! That is to say, we and every other air breathing being on this planet can not use that which is emitted from devices using this fuel. Consider only the number of cars on the planet, estimated 800,000.000, multiply that by 14,700 and you might be able comprehend what is actually going on, did you know that?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Nitrogens purpose is to expand lungs enhancing respiration, we do not consume it, as Oxygen is the main constituent element of air we use to exist, and is only 21% of air, the example I have highlighted is only a minor consumer of Oxygen. I agree that air contains Nitrogen which benefits plant life, and some plant's do help to release Oxygen, but the scale of Oxygen use, the reduction of plant life, and its ability to provide sufficient Oxygen for future generations in my view are to be at least researched accurately. Consider this, the human population will increase massively in the next few year's, plant life is unlikely to, and there is a thought that we should save the planet, the planet does not need us, but we sure as hell need it, unless we start thinking about this, the planet I think will be glad to be shot of us!!!

"The Antarctic ozone hole has been a potent symbol of humankind's ability to cause unintended environmental harm. But now comes a glimmer of good news: The void in the ozone layer is shrinking. 'It's a big surprise,' says Susan Solomon, an atmospheric chemist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. 'I didn't think it would be this early.'"
I found the perfect story to ease me back into this blog's regular programming after three straight days celebrating Star Trek's 50th anniversary, good news about the hole in the ozone layer. Trace Dominguez of DNews has tha...

The cost of this plane is 100RMB. I sell it a 101RMB with 1RMB hand-making fee. Some clients think it is expansive at 101RMB,because other supplier quote them 100RMB,98RMB, 90RMB, even lower. After purchasing, they find that they are cheated by false goods. The regret and shout at all people that Chinese are all cheaters and we will not purchase from China any more. I want to say, 1. There are cost of any goods and no men do business to loss money. 2. There are good qualkity goods in China. 3. Testing samples, cost lower but earn great chance. 4. Others can not find good quality goods, but you can. Then it is your chance. Welcome to test samples, your partner, greenpowers2010@gmail.com

Major South Korean palm oil and timber company #Korindo has been accused of fueling widespread #deforestation and illegal fires for land clearing in #Indonesia following an investigation led by US-based environmental campaign group Mighty. According to a Mighty report, Korindo has cleared more than 50,000 hectares of tropical lowland forests in Papua and North Maluku since 2008 and 'makes little effort to identify and preserve conservation areas' within its sites, which are home to tree kangeroos, large cassowary birds, and other wildlife. Moreover, Korindo stands accused of systematic and widespread use of fires while clearing land to make way for #palmoil plantations - a practice which Mighty claims is illegal in Indonesia, and a fact which it claims Korindo is 'only too aware of'.

Global energy investment in 2015 amounted to US$1.8 trillion, down 8% (in real terms) from 2014, mainly due to a sharp fall in upstream oil and gas investment.
