Creating a planetary safety net

Dig even deeper!

Use these exercises to dive deeper and explore what might be involved in creating a planetary safety net through protection and restoration.

Identify protection and restoration opportunities:

Visit the UN Biodiversity Lab and identify existing protected areas and degraded lands. Where might efforts go to create new protected areas and restore ecosystems in your community?

Imagine a hopeful future:

Imagine a hopeful future for massive action on protection and restoration in the next 25 years within your community. What impacts of this protection and restoration would you like to see in your area?

CONFRONTATION OF BIODIVERSITY & POLLUTION PROBLEMS

First of all, creation of fusion energy (if it is safe), creation of state-of-art electromagnetic spectrum generators (one example is electromagnetic power generator, which begins to work with electricity and keeps for 10 years through magnetic energy conversion into electricity), & creation of correct infrastructures for hydrogen energy which can be created by the fission of human urine on a mass level if there is the correct infrastructure, which can be created by the fission of biomass on a mass level if there is the correct infrastructure, which can be created by the fission of food waste on a mass level if there is the correct infrastructure & which can be created by the fission of plastics on a mass level if there is the correct infrastructure. Artificial photosynthesis & microwaves can help also with the production of hydrogen. Hydrogen energy should be used to all the means of public transport (with their simultaneous reinforcement and promotion for use by the citizens through education, media, social media & internet) as long as there is no problem with drinking water needs in the long run (because from the breakdown of human urine, we can create & safe drinking water) in combination with all the renewable energy sources such as Vortex Bladeless, hydropower, wave energy, whirlpool energy, tidal power (especially at the rivers & at the pipelines of drinking water that have specific flow), solar water heaters, solar panels, transparent solar panel windows, maybe house exterior surfaces & roads cladding with nanoparticles for generation of electricity via temperature, humidity, etc. (if they can exist), & finally creation of artificial forests [from artificial trees, which absorb harmful emissions better than normal trees ((for an example: if governments give subsidy for the establishment of artificial forests (from artificial trees) into the roof & around of every house, they can confront the pollution into the cities up to a point))] in residential areas and in barren places in order to clean the environment until to reach a permissible – safe level.

Later, establishment of school trips for tree planting in order to make children friendly with nature from early ages & to learn not to pollute it through specific lectures. Also, implantation of thousands – millions of spores into the ground daily through drones, which use automation and which already exist. Launch of spores into the soil with artificial outer membrane which will contains & bulk nanobubbles – microbubbles in order to give better performance to the spores which will become trees – plants.

Strict factory laws must also be put in place to put state-of-the-art filters that absorb and convert all harmful substances into clean fuels [like the patent from NASA which it is called Solar Powered Carbon Dioxide Conversion (& like other similar technologies that absorb & transform the emissions into fuels/biofuels)] and/or pure nanomaterials through biochemical reactions and/or biodegradable and possibly recyclable plastics (like the discovery by the Wyss Institute which it is called Circe: Transforming Greenhouse Gases into Biodegradable Products) which can become later maybe plastics/bioplastics again or hydrogen energy. Strict laws also for production only of recyclable plastics in order to there is circular economy up to a point.

Creation of factories & boats which will absorb the CO2, plastics-microplastics-nanoplastics, biomass, food waste, urine & all the harmful substances from the water in order to transform them into the fuels (hydrogen) of mass means of transport & tankers – boats. The combination of all together plus huge electromagnetic power generators will makes the tankers – boats autonomous.

At the same time, huge skyscrapers must be created in width, length, height & depth inside & near cities and villages (i.e. in residential areas) that will be greenhouses (with new generation technology which no needs soil & a lot of water – vertical greenhouses with specific lights–lamps in order to grow faster the trees/plants from healthy biological seeds & in order to be more nutrient without pesticides), aquacultures and animal farms. Also, vaccination of animals to eradicate diseases that may prove dangerous to humans through their consumption. We need also & other huge greenhouses, aquacultures & zoos which will work only for the biodiversity restoration of our planet because almost all the species have extinction problems due to climate change from humanity wrong actions. Those techniques will help to the cost of emissions due to the cut of the transport of goods, they will help also with the consumption of drinking water due to less water needs, they will help with the avoidance of pesticides, they will help with the growth of oxygen & they will help with etc.

Creation of multiple Modern Arks, such as the Ark of Noah, where we will gather the healthy immortalized stem cell lines of all types of organisms by their blood samples, in order to multiply them and create healthy embryos by them (there is an Israeli scientific discovery about this tactic) into integrated organism factories of the Modern Arks, which will contain multiple artificial wombs-matrices for mass cultivation of organisms, where we will feed them with the best nutrients, in order to bring them back from the extinction on a healthy state.

Discovery, identification, creation and production of microorganisms (like Mealworms, like Ideonella sakaiensis & like etc), molecules, submolecules, enzymes (like plastic-eating enzyme from a Japanese University, like PETase & like etc), bacteria, acids and etc., which will eat the plastics & etc. substances in specific state-of-art landfills with total safety.

Finally, clearance of the drinking water with the combination of all-in-one multiple sophisticated (state-of-art) filters, plus microwaves, etc. electromagnetic spectrum fields for its total clearance from everything (for safety reasons).

Hello Everyone!

I would like to start a discussion on protection and restoration within different regions of the world. For example, my home-country would benefit from protection of lands used for agriculture, protection of coastal areas and restoration of areas affected by floods.

What about your regions or countries? Which would be the natural areas in need of protection and restoration?

Andrea Pazos

Hello @Andreea Alexandra Mitrofan ! , what do you think are the obstacles for these restoration programmes to take place in your country (if any)?

In my case, (Peru), I would say (as in other countries) the Amazon rainforest (due to reforestation and habitat destruction driven by agriculture and illegal mining). Coastal wetlands due to urban development and pollution. Mangroves (again threatened by deforestation and aquaculture) and Lake Titicaca, which is currently facing habitat degradation and pollution. Of course, there are more examples.

Thank you, @Andrea Pazos Niño de Guzmán . I personally believe the obstacles are so complex and inter-connected that I feel it would be unfair to name just a few, as I don’t have the full picture of what is affecting each area in need of protection or restoration. I would focus on local coordinated actions and on understanding the interconnectivity of causes and effects for areas in need of restoration, as we might be pleasantly surprised by one action in one area positively impacting another area!

Andrea Pazos

@Andreea Alexandra Mitrofan , totally agree!
