The home solar power inihtiative will provide local people with a clean sourse of renewable energy that will help control one major problem–the deforestation of tropical rain forests for wood buring for fuel. There needs to be a program to do home building that will use green materials but not destroy local forests and wood lands for building constructionmaterial. Maybe big national and international corporations could be inlisted into this effort through international programs like or similar to the United Nations Water Mandate. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Being a little free with other people’s money, aren’t you?

So, unless they wake up and smell the garbage, ecocide is inevitable.

But Indian cities continue to grow and the growing Indian population loves it, because “a growing economy is a healthy economy”. That would be true if the planet were growing also, but it isn’t. Instead it is shrinking with each volcano and earthquake. So, the truth is, a growing economy on a shrinking planet has a very limited future as the biosphere breaks down under the pressure of growing populations and their growing tons of waste and garbage, most of which is dumped in landfills and the ocean.

This pays tribute to the country’s vast biodiversity wealth and its technological research contributions towards the globally sustainable use of natural resources.

The annual Science Symposium forms part of the GBIF’s ongoing global efforts to find ways of slowing down and eventually curbing the loss of biodiversity through long-term conservation and the sustainable use of biological biodiversity.
