The Sun Peeks over Hallelujah Mountain
« on: February 15, 2010, 11:40:54 am »
Here is a front that the Na'Vi people can step forward into, and that is the War of Freedom. The War of Freedom is a war where the conservationalists can take a stance against the overharvesting of trees to be used as newspapers. We all know that we can read the news online now as well paying to see a magazine article by using a credit card, so why are we still allowing the Helltrucks to roll through the swamp marshes and primordial jungles of Earth destroying the very roots that hold Earth together? The more that we harvest trees the more that the winds of time replace a once beautifull and vibrant land with sand and desert. Just like what happened with the Sahara and Middle East will to happen in your country state or town. The trees roots are what keeps the soil moist and holds the soil together.The more we harvest trees for cigarette paper which adds carcinogens into the environment as well the more we continue to kill Gaia which is us and we are Gaia, the more we continue to kill ourselves. Do not listen to their scientists that say that global warming is not affecting this planet because it is. Everytime a HellTruck rolls to harvest trees it produces toxins that pollute Gaia which in turns pollutes us. This pollution causes cancers that do afflict those responible for their creation but indiscriminate people who have to feel the burden and suffering just so a newstand will bring you only half of the daily story in paper form. But we must also be compassionate towards the Helltruck drivers, they do not understand the Gaian or Eywian Strings of life, all they know is that they need. Their need disturbs the very ecosphere of Earth(Gaia), not only is our ability to breathe diminished by the harvesting so to are all of the creatures that depend on the single tree their Tree of Souls, the mother bird has lost her young which in turn allows viral insects such as mosquitoes to thrive which cause the spread of diseases to increase among humans. The harvesting of trees also affects other wildlife that would be present to absorb the dead creatures that have lived their life and returned to Gaia. Their bodies decay causing more types of diseases to spread that affect humans, just so a newspaper stand seller can bring you only half of the story on a daily basis. But we cannot let these newspaper selles whither in death as that would be crule to them even though what they do to us is cruel. They can adapt by using the internet media to tell their stories and for the helltruck drivers they can use Wix.com and Wikia.com to write and post their articles. Let the digital age wash away hell and start a boycott of newspaper stands across the country. As the forests and jungles return to their primordial being so to will humanity begin a transcendence apart from trying to destroy itself.

You may think that you will get in trouble for this but you will not, how can one get in trouble for protecting the very nature that gave birth to us and sustains us? Only those that would harvest our very essence to live should be called terrorist's as well as those that say "That's just the way it is."

I agree that tech is making it easier to go paper-free and I would dearly love to put and end to deforestation, but we must take baby steps, like choosing to go paperless so that there is less demand for paper. We must also consider that those who drive these "helltrucks" are doing so to feed themselves or their family, and we must remember that if we take away the jobs, we take the food from their mouths. Also, once the truck drivers aren't needed, how will they survive? Job training costs a lot of money and some truckers (a very small amount, I beleive) hardly have a high-school education. I do think that this is a worthwhile thread, so let's keep the idea-river flowing...

I think that a person's education is up to them, if they only choose to do one job and do not choose to try an better theirself then that is their own undoing. These people that would lose their jobs could be used by companies like Wall-Mart, Macy's ect to delivery items that have been store bought over the Internet. Someone places their order online , a picker picks the order and then delivers the item within three days or for a fater delivery the buyer could pay an extrta two dollars for express delivery by the end of the day (5pm) or by the next morning (5am).

Here is another way to help solve the problem of deforestation. Although they are somewhat expensive the new I-Pad from Apple is a start away from having to cut down our most vital of essence which is aour trees.

What's the difference between an iPad and a laptop? :P I couldn't afford one anyway. I'll stick with my HP. Besides, there's something special about having pages to turn. Ask any bookworm. Granted, you have some very insightful ideas, but peoples' preferences are hard to change. However, if shown how the newer version is in some way beneficial, either for their lifestyle or something they find reasonable, you may have success. I neither refuse your ideas nor do I completely agree. More thoughts?

Electronic books haven't quite become mainstream. They've been out for a coupole years, but in my opinion, i like pages to turn. Not buttons to press. One upside to electronic books is portability. a small 6 ounce unit can transport an entire library in a pocket. Have the ASG or Art of Avatar books with you at all times. (Most electronic books don't support color, but as the technology takes off, i wouldn't be surprised if color units come out).

Most people do prefer old fashion physical books, myself included. A book isn't quite the same in electronic form.
See that shadow? It's the last one you're gonna see.

It would just take getting used to that is all. Think of this as doing something for the future of humanity instead of living in the past and continually polluting our environment. Just because the companies may plant trees to replace the ones cut down their ability to scrub the air and provide oxygen is not the same as a tree that has been around for hundreds and thousands of years.

Here is a spot from CNN about the very subject that I am talking about.

One estimate indicates that a large tree whose trunk is 39 inches in diameter at breast height releases 0.67 pounds (0.31 kilograms) of oxygen per day. A smaller tree of 9-12 inches diameter at breast height releases only 0.13 lbs (0.06 kg) per day. For comparison, according to NASA, a typical adult would use 1.85 lbs (0.84 kg) of oxygen gas per day in the process of respiration. From these numbers you can see the importance of trees to oxygen production on earth. According to the web site http://www.treepeople.org/, in one year an acre of trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.

http://www.auburn.edu/communications_marketing/askaubie/101205.html

What this means is that it takes two trees of 39 inches in diameter to provide enough oxygen for a human adult on a daily basis. With deforestation this takes away these trees that we need to survive. It also takes several decades for a tree to grow to this size and are not grown overnight. So you see if we do not stop felling trees for uses in newspapers and magazine articles that we can pay to view per story or article online we are actually killing ourselves by taking away the very sustanance that gives us life.  I could go into the detailed breakdown of how each vehicle pollutant that comes from cars that use fossil fuels also breaks our oxygen down but I think you can add the numbers for yourself from the articles above. I am also going to send GreenPeace an Email requesting a new ship be built called either Pandora or Neytiri that will further help the goal of cleaning the oceans and provide secuirty to endangered species in the ocean that are being hunted to extinction.

As other have said before, there is just something about holding a book in your hand that will never be replaced by electronics. That still doesn't mean that I don't want something like the Kindle or Nook. Actually I want one quite a bit. I move around a lot and simply don't have the room to pack all of the books I want with me. The few books that I do own are my favorites and the classic. They're a treat to own, reread, and wear out. For "new" books I love my second hand stores. No new trees killed there, and they're cheap! Though I do feel guilty for buying something where the money doesn't go directly to the author.

Still, it's all about finding the middle ground. Paper books will be here for a long time to come, but I'm willing to use electronic as well.

keep in mind that as u use a kindle you have to get electricity... which mostly comes from the burning of something. for now that would be bad but im sure the future will bring greener electricity.

Kaltxì, ma tsmukan

keep in mind that as u use a kindle you have to get electricity... which mostly comes from the burning of something. for now that would be bad but im sure the future will bring greener electricity.
I am using a Sony e-reader and I love the thing. As stated further down, you carry a library around.
Yes, you need electricity to keep the thing running, but my reader runs a full month on a charging of 4 hours, which I can easily do with the PC running. When I am away to sunny realms, I have a portable solar charger with me for that, and the phone. And that works pretty good, even when charging is slow. (Charging the ereader can take a whole day for what I care, if it runs a month on that!)

And for physical books: to each their own. Plenty of options to choose from. I prefer the electronic book, not the dead-tree version. But that's just me.

I see a few problems with that.  Some places are trying to ban plastic shopping bags in favour of paper bags because it's more biodegradable. (The other option is to use corn-based plastics, which break down in a few months)

Second, it's not just paper that takes up trees.  Any wood product (ie a house) or furniture would take trees down.

Give us a chance, MORON!

well yes but people arent going to tear down their house to make a paper bag anytime soon I dont think. Plus the demand for wood would rise and that would put us back to plastic.

The problem with paper bags is that they're bulkier than plastic, thus their transportation costs (aka, fuel usage) are higher. The best choice, if you mainly cared about footprint, would be to bring your own canvas/cloth bags, and reuse them.
