Saving the world was high on the agenda today. On the streets of Berlin alone there were 300,000 people. Can the climate protests put enough pressure on the world leaders to stop polluting? Do governments really doubt that climate change is real or is it simply “an inconvenient truth” that threatens the established way the world’s industries operate? It’s hard to believe that Al Gore’s film was released in 2006, Greta Thunberg was three years old, fourteen years later here we are. If it takes years for people to act on something that they are aware threatens them, how can we ever execute plans to reverse the polluting of the Earth and guarantee our future.
See below for the world’s worst offenders (from Science Daily website).
“A new study led by researchers in Australia has ranked most of the world’s countries for their environmental impact. The world’s 10 worst environmental performers according to the proportional environmental impact index (relative to resource availability) are: Singapore, Korea, Qatar, Kuwait, Japan, Thailand, Bahrain, Malaysia, Philippines and Netherlands. In absolute global terms, the 10 countries with the worst environmental impact were found to be (in order, worst first): Brazil, USA, China, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, India, Russia, Australia and Peru.”
