re how to change the plight of the worlds poor to make the world a better place is more than controling populations breeding or smaller families come with better education, and the will and ability to raise children into responsable world citisens [acting locally but able to fit into a greater global picture]its not about giving threm aid [or money] but about them having credit for those human base needs money can buy ,basic survivability , then an education that leads to  a means to derive thier own income
extending intrest free credit for basic food,healthy airs soils and waters , survival  education , secure housing that leads them to the means to generate thier own income earnings ,ie having a [thier own ]credit ,having an effective local tradable currency ,but based on a id card as means to acces credit that allows them acces to lifes fruits they need to survivepaying for it is easy ,the wealthy [first world elites get a return on thier moneys via a rolling over tax deductablity on the doner side [say3 to  8 percent of the sum donated as a tax credit for the lenders] but simple debt repayment [in time] on the recipiantsbut even then personal saftey must be assured ,this endless exploitive war mongering by these micro exploitetive kings in thier disputed fiefdoms must end ,if a ruler cant rule for his own peoples benifit ,they must need be removed from thier positionspoor people could derive incomes from looking after [serving the old and feeble , or tending those we at great cost imprison ,in expensive jails ,the poor in africa could be looking after our prisoners [with suitable means and protections , that ensure their civel protections ,the prisoners could in time earn remissions by serving the poor in other lands, by teaching [under supervision, or communicating ,or in other ways serving them as a  condition of thier incarceration, really bad criminals could be put with the more uncivilised tribes where tribal justice would be autherisedin short we dont waste money locking people up we put them in care with native supervisions ,where they dont even know the native language [so the tribe , nation gets income, and we [first world stop incarcerating people at great expence ]its about giving natives an income , but also providing a better use for peaople than just locking them up , with an income stream ,communication systems , can be installed to monitor thier every act [on both sides]works projects that benifit the comunity could be undertaken to provide income streams for poor people ,ground can be restored , rivers cleaned up ,forests planted , flora /fauna collected , studiesm filmed , recorded,catologed or protectedcredit recipiants could get cards [id] that get them a meal or two per  each day , or safe places to sleep, served at food kitchens overseenn electroniclly [or by formentioned prisoners doing thier rehabilitations ]western rubbish [clean western rubbish could be of great use as aid to the worlds poor by getting them a raw material they can recycle as a potential income streamnoting reuse is better than recycling [or burying our rubbish recycle means make a bottle then break a bottle [to make another bottle]
the real better thing is reuse
to make a bottle [from glass] then reuse it locally , refill it locally , reuse it locally [our old fashoned glass milk bottles got recycled hundreds of times,locally ,the deliveror picked up the washed bottles ,took them back to refill them then brought them back
a  teaching should be put to the world  eco forum of the value in a local reuse for a local industry should be initiated using that called rubbish, natives are extreemly inventive, plastic bags made into mats , and numerous other inventionsthese are but a few of the thoughts noted from the vidios submitted [ok i put my own spin on them [but see the big idea] economics has the means to affect change [be it by micro credit] or just giving a little back [trying to raise the human coindition above mere striving to stay alive ]lets get it together everyone has thier own teachings ,our future lies in all of us being what god created us to become , not just for the elites , who seem to want ever more , not for the world to become poorwe have teqnoligy now where anyone can bring the next best thing l,we know what the problems are , the solution is here [we have free energy [unlimited free energy but they are being kept back ,we have moters that run on magnetic repulsion, run simply by shaping the electric fields of permant magnetswe have glass fibre that can bring its communication [information anywhere we can concieve,we have things like the joe feul cell that allows combustion moters tro run on free gas[simply change the ignition timming 25 degrees , and the browns gas [the joe cell produces implodes [not explodes ]to run moters on implosion [not petro chemical explosion, we have solar cells  able top be printed on aluminium foil, able to make hydrogen for cooking, desalination, any thing heat energy can do [and it turns into water when used]people think they need money[this is only brought on by fear , lets move beyond fear , we can grow the seed from the tree of life [hemp] gaining back the age of plenty [pre the 30's resession] pre the petro age ,able to sustainably sustain us all [in ever better [permanent survival] we just need to wake up the money changers into becomming to gether as one great glorious creation [by being as one for the only onegreed got us here , now generosity can keep us here better

Why the ocean you know and love won’t exist in 50 years

Can sensitive coral reefs survive another human generation?

  • Coral reefs may not be able to survive another human decade because of the environmental stress we have placed on them, says author David Wallace-Wells. He posits that without meaningful changes to policies, the trend of them dying out, even in light of recent advances, will continue.
  • The World Wildlife Fund says that 60 percent of all vertebrate mammals have died since just 1970. On top of this, recent studies suggest that insect populations may have fallen by as much as 75 percent over the last few decades.
  • If it were not for our oceans, the planet would probably be already several degrees warmer than it is today due to the emissions we've expelled into the atmosphere.
