Finally in the mood to phase out fossil fuel? – Governance

Yes, Governance! One of the ESGs.
WOW! So much is already happening, TODAY, to phase them out.*
– Solutions through the law

“The rules of our world are laws, and they can be changed. Laws can restrict or they can enable. What matters is what they serve. Many of the laws in our world serve property – they are based on ownership. But imagine a law that has a higher moral authority… a law that puts people and planet first. Imagine a law that starts from first “do no harm”, that stops this dangerous game and takes us to a place of safety….” Polly Higgins, 2015

“We need to change the rules.”
Greta Thunberg, 2019

The World is too small for ….Pox?

Infections that pass from animals to humans are known as zoonotic diseases. Some of these also have the ability to pass from human to human once they make the jump across species.
In that respect, monkeypox has some similarities to Covid-19. But it’s been around a lot longer than the coronavirus behind the recent pandemic.

Critical Minerals & Rare Elements! ….. COLOSSAL WASTE RUSH

WOW! …the Critical Minerals & Rare Elements industry is already beginning to replace earth mines with “Urban Mining”.
See how fast “Industry” works to solve their own problems!?!
It has only been a few years!

Look here what recyclers have to work with!
This Year

The point herein is that every country, worldwide, needs their own Urban Mining = e-waste recycling. Below are examples of who is doing it and where your country can get help setting up your own operations.

In an earlier post, that says more about the reasons for this new WasteRush, here.

Circular Mining
The Demand
The Suppliers – Technology
Rare earth elements await in Coal Mining Waste
The Suppliers – Collection+

What makes an economy Circular? Decompose to New Life !

Let’s review.

>>In Nature, After Use:Dead tissues break down and are converted into simple organic forms;food for new life.
>>In Industry, After Use: Break-it-up, dismantle it, separate materials, disassemble it, take it apart into its various materialsand ready them as new feed-stocks for new production.

Recycling and Reuse!
Closing the Loop – The Life Cycle of ALL things

The part that makes it a Circular Economy

Without decay, we would overflow with plant & animal “remains”
Decomposition is the first stage = recycling

There really is an urgent need to accelerate recycling.
