The statistics about climate change show how pollution, extinction, human's wrong behaviour are destroying the planet.

  • Spain: El Hierro - An Ecological Paradise | European Journal

    The smallest Canary Island, El Hierro, is focusing on eco-tourism. Instead of high-rise hotels and shopping malls, visitors can enjoy unspoiled countryside and coastline.El Hierro can't begin to rival Gran Canaria and Tenerife as a holiday destination - but it doesn't even want to. Residents actually prefer to keep tourism to a minimum. They're proud of their sustainable local agriculture - every product that comes from El Hierro will soon be organic. UNESCO has made the island a biosphere reserve for its focus on ecological alternatives. The other Canary Islands are also learning from El Hierro's approach.

  • Helmuth Nyborg: "What Made Europe Great & What Could Destroy It"

    The 2017 American Renaissance Conference: "Turning the Tide." Helmuth Nyborg, professor emeritus of the University of Aarhus, begins by pointing out the clear relationship between distance from the equator and both brain size and intelligence. At or close to the equator, the average IQ is 69, whereas at a latitude of 54 degrees the average is 98. Prof. Nyborg observes that races could be logically be classified as “eco-types,” since their traits reflect the ecological niches in which they evolved. Prof. Nyborg also notes that unlike the north/south gradient in IQ there is no East/West gradient, virtually proving that it is the challenges of a cold climate that have forced northern peoples to evolve higher intelligence and a greater capacity for cooperation. He points out that Arabs have ...

  • The Columbian Exchange: Crash Course World History #23

    In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate. Resources: The Columbian Excha...

  • 50 years of Protecting Europe's Environment

    http://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/policy/multimedia/50-years-of-protecting-europes-environment/view Today the European Union has the most environmentally-friendly arsenal of rules in the world and has done more to tackle pressing ecological problems, such as climate change, than any other major power. But it has not always been like this. Caring for the environment did not feature in the Treaty of Rome, the document that gave birth to the modern day EU. Yet environmental problems were never far away. Europe's love affair with the car was moving into top gear, industry was busy belching out pollutants and raw sewage was being pumped into our rivers and seas.

The overall aim of the Training course is to bring motivated participants together and practice ecological and sustainable life in a rural area. We want to remember (or learn) how to use traditional methods and develop new ideas. Learning objectives of the Training course are: -To experience a life without typical daily routine and all the tools of modern life. -To practice and observe ecologic framings. -To develop perma-cultural plans. - Re-cycle activities -Ecologic farming, planting activities. -Eco-nomic - Exchange ideas.

Prof. Nyborg also notes that unlike the north/south gradient in IQ there is no East/West gradient, virtually proving that it is the challenges of a cold climate that have forced northern peoples to evolve higher intelligence and a greater capacity for cooperation. He points out that Arabs have lower-than-expected IQs relative to the latitudes in which they evolved, probably due to the dysgenic effects of frequent cousin marriages. Two forces could destroy Western Civilization. One is a social system that taxes the competent to subsidize the proliferation of the incompetent. As Prof. Nyborg notes, “The welfare-state debases what created high civilization in the first place. This is the first time in history that the less fit are reproducing more than the more fit.” At the same time, lower-IQ non-Europeans are pouring into the continent, bringing with them alien practices and religions. Prof. Nyborg concludes with a warning: Unless Europeans are able to reverse these two trends, “the result could be the undoing of the Enlightenment. We may be on the precipice of a new Dark Age.” Website: https://www.amren.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/AmRenaissance Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RaceRealism/
