Preparing for post-Corona

Many people are planning what to do after the main time of the pandemic. It is important for the future of all of us, how we act now, as I mentioned e.g. in this post: https://cathagoessustainable.wordpress.com/2020/03/05/a-comment-on-corona-calling-for-resilience/ There are many possible scenarios which can happen, for example, the one described here: https://www.zukunftsinstitut.de/artikel/im-rausch-des-positiven-die-welt-nach-corona/ This is a nice …

Epilogue

Fortunately, humans at the end of the first quarter of the 21st century where wise enough to drastically change their lifestyles and ways of production so that global warming could be limited to 1,5° Celsius.

Chapter 11: Politics & Democracy

The regions are democratically governed and in peaceful (trade and knowledge) relations with each other. All people are interested in politics because they know that the decisions directly influence their lives and they care about what happens in the community. They want to actively design and shape the world in the best possible way. Therefore, …

Chapter 6: Health

People in the future will be much healthier. Many illnesses are prevented due to healthy nutrition (for elaboration see https://cathagoessustainable.wordpress.com/2019/09/12/chapter-1-nutrition/). Food is free of unhealthy chemical residues stemming from fertilizers, pesticides, etc. The fact that people stopped smoking, has also contributed to this development and this has also removed many toxic substances from the environment …

As no one has a private car anymore, all parking spaces have been turned into green areas, where people can sit, meet, garden, plant, do handicrafts and enjoy their life in general. Transportation is mainly done by bikes and many streets are only free for bikes, skateboards and pedestrians. In bigger streets, one line is …

Make the world green again

Yes, I mixed some things in the title... Some classmates edited a speech of Donald Trump a few weeks ago and replaced each 'great' in 'make America great again' etc. with 'green' - a funny end to their presentation, but unfortunately quite opposite from the reality. He destroyed so many environmental laws and even wants …

Time is running – let’s move as well

Fear is not the best advisor so we should not use it as a guide. Studies are showing that permafrost areas and Arctic ice are melting faster than expected and talk about five more years to achieve massive CO2 drawdown (https://www.heise.de/tp/features/Weltklima-auf-der-Kippe-4456028.html). Others say that human civilization might collapse by 2050, if we do not act …
