Natural resources

Natural resources are commodities (raw materials) like oil, wood, gas and coal. Energy sources like water and air, agricultural surfaces and food are also counted to it. Our individual life preservation, sensitive (vulnerable) ecological systems as well as the economic and social development are dependent (subordinate) from natural resources.

In the course of the discussion about lastingness the destination is formulated to use available commodities (raw materials) and energy sources so efficiently as possible and to search for alternative resources.

Natural resources distinguish themselves by the fact that they can be generated (produced) neither technically, nor be reproduced, therefore only the given stock (supply) is available and they are thereby delimited. And we live on this stock (supply) continuously (forever) and even (still) with increasing growth rate what starts (boosts) the economy and is glad. Faithful to the motto „ after us the flood, as long as the cash desk (cash) votes “. Of a no more much too distant (far-off) day (here is argued violently, according to interest team, about the precise time) the natural resources will be used up. Because the economy on the supply is depended by resources in the growing masses, it will collapse at the latest then.

Before it dependences will originate from resource shortage in the care (supply), and this will concern not only developing countries and threshold countries, also Europe will be concerned.

At first one is to be thought slantwise, on this occasion, only of the availability of the oil whose reach seems to be realistic till 2035. However, also here there will already be before drying up of the oil exploding prices and a wrangling around the last drops. This phase is expected (awaited) during the next 10 to 20 years. We must change shoots up possibly on renewable energy and energy-efficient.

However, the resource shortage also becomes in other areas which we cannot introduce ourselves (cannot fancy) currently (actually) maybe yet sketched. There is spoken of dirty (polluted) water and polluted air. And if we are here sometimes honest today the smog strikes us absolutely already in many towns (cities) with certain weather conditions, and that the water quality is drinkable in many shares (parts) of the ground today already no more, also becomes known.

To the problem of the briefer (the more scarce) growing (nascent) water is met with water management. In combination with new technologies for the editing (preparation), distribution, use, regeneration and substitution of water management can perform a contribution for a lasting (sustained) and efficient water use, one says. The fact that of it, firstly, the industry profits again, should tune us thoughtfully. And more drinkable water than it gives, this can also not generate (produce). Water should go in future " smartly administers " (speak, marketed) get, and one thinks, on this occasion, of other management which do not function (work) necessarily smartly, although originally in such a way thought, one can become absolutely nervous as a water heavy drinker.

The policy (politics) sees the destination of future developments to be raked to the claims of the population to high quality of life, to receive the economic legal capacity and to protect at the same time the local balance of nature (ecological balance of the area). At first sight a commendable beginning (attempt). However, must be mentioned in this connection that the quality of life has supposedly (!) considerably increased during the last 30 years, worldwide, only. This process of the increase of the supposed (ostensible) quality of life has left a lot of environment as well as social problems...

Tip (Indication)

Under this dot (point) all subjects will be treated which lie to us especially (particularly) with the heart and from those every now and then also our decision to the Hermes Project has originated.

The person organizes unbelievable with the nature, this might be nothing new. Nevertheless, there are doubtful developments in this connection which do not find the space proper to them in the media with our big (great) surprise.

If it is the situation (position) with the oil production which will force us in the everyday (daily) life to the action, or the already sketched shortage on water which will allow to seem ridiculous in not distant (far-off) future many banal things (matters), finally.

To avoid the technologies with these resources carefully are invented partly already. Only it is moved in too small (little) circumference what would make an excursion in the interests of the policy (politics) and industry very informative, sprinkles here, nevertheless, presumably the border.

We would like to outline here therefore only the actual state certain resources which things (matters) from it resultant arise (surrender) for our village construction and above all which solutions there are also in the technological area in the living space to be raked to principles of the lastingness.

From our point of view the following subjects main focuses at which we look (consider) neither as entire nor in conclusion arise (surrender) on this occasion. Here we are in your opinion, your proposals and of course also criticism (review) interested. Record with us contact.

Data (Dates) and facts
natural resources

*

Nearly one quarter of the whole (complete) land masses of the ground is concerned by a deterioration of the ground quality, and for nearly 70 percent of the dry regions of the ground must be calculated on another deterioration. The slightest ground quality is often a sequence of […] as well as the excessive use of brief (scarce) land (country) and is narrowly connected (hangs together) with the problems of the country poverty and the hunger. The living from more than one billion people in 100 countries is thereby threatened.
*

The mountains supply half of all earthlings with fresh water. But the ecological systems of the mountains are threatened by melting glaciers, cleared (deforested) forests and not lasting (sustained) management methods.
*

During the last decade about 94 million hectares of wood got lost to the world - an area (field) greater than Venezuela. Mostly it is cleared (deforested) in the tropical regions of the developing countries. Only during the last ten years four percent of the forest inventory were cleared (deforested) there.
*

By human leverage have got worse worldwide more than half of the ecological systems in coastal regions. For Europe this interest lies at 80 percent, for Asia at 70 percent.
*

About 80 percent of the marine pollution comes (gets) from the mainland. In the developing countries more than 90 percent of the sewage and 70 percent of the industrial waste are led (managed) inexplicably in the face water of the seas.
*

With the fishing (fishery) about 400 million people earn directly (immediately) and indirectly (obliquely) her (their) living. Worldwide are over fished more than one quarter of all fish zones; in half the fishing has already reached (arrived) the capacity border. In total worldwide immediate steps must be undertaken in 75 percent of all fish zones to stop fishing dry or to reduce to guarantee (seize) also a future fish care.
*

Nearly one quarter of the coral reefs of the ground are already destroyed completely, and farther (further) 20 to 30 percent are threatened during the next ten years by destruction. Coral reefs are an extremely important component of the food chain in the seas.
*

The concentration of carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas in the atmosphere (ambience), has increased from a preindustrial level of about 270 millionths part on more than 360 millionths part. A third of the carbon dioxide which was produced during the last years by activities of the people will still exist in 100 years in the atmosphere (ambience).
*

The sea level has risen since 1900 by ten to 20 centimeters, most non-polar masses of ice step back, and the arctic ice decreases according to the interstate thing sensible team about changes in climate (IPCC) in circumference and thickness. The team found out that yearly (annually) about 46 million people of Überflutungen are concerned by the increase of storms. An increase of the sea level about 50 centimeters would raise (increase) this number on 92 millions, an increase by a meter on 118 millions.
*

According to the newest studies (sketches) of the IPCC of 2001 an increase of the sea level is already extremely danderous especially (particularly) for small (little) islands (isles) and delta areas around a meter. Without defusing measures, like the construction of dams, land losses of a percent could originate for Egypt, six percent for the Netherlands, 17.5 percent for Bangladesch and up to 80 percent for the marshal's islands. Millions people would lose her (their) living space, and in the case of deeply recumbent small (little) island states whole people (nations) would be threatened.
*

More than 11,000 animal species and botanical species are threatened by the extinction, and more than 800 kinds (ways) have already become extinct - primarily (chiefly) by the loss or the deterioration of her (their) natural living spaces. Farther (further) 5,000 kinds (ways) are endangered potentially, in case significant strains (efforts) for her (their) protection are not undertaken.
