OCEAN ENVIRONMENTALISM

Posted on: February 8, 2022

THE HUMANS WILL SAVE THE OCEAN WITH ARTIFICIAL CONCRETE REEFS

A QUORA QUESTION

How can the modern analysis of coral fossils through paleontology/paleoecology inform and assist in the development of future concrete artificial reefs structures in the light of climate change and changing ocean conditions?

WHAT WE SEE HERE IS THAT THE NEW ECO WACKO VIEW OF THE WORLD WHERE THE ENVIRONMENTALISM AGENDA OF “HUMANS MUST NOT MESS WITH NATURE” HAS TURNED AROUND 180 DEGREES SUCH THAT THERE IS NOW AN ECO WACKO AGENDA TO BUILD ARTIFICIAL CONCRETE REEFS IN THE OCEAN BECAUSE THEY HAVE DETERMINED THAT THE OCEAN DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH OXYGEN AND THAT IT IS UP TO THE HUMANS TO PROVIDE THE NEEDED OXYGEN BY BUILDING ARTIFICIAL REEFS BECAUSE THAT WILL INCREASE OXYGEN AVAILABILITY FOR THE CREATURES IN THE OCEAN. AND ALL THIS MUST BE UNDERSTOOD IN THE CONTEXT OF CLIMATE CHANGE BUT THAT CONNECTION IS NOT MADE CLEAR IN THIS CASE. WHAT IS CLEAR HOWEVER IS THAT THE HUMAN EGO IS OUT OF CONTROL.

OLD ENVIRONMENTALISM: THE HUMANS MUST NOT MESS WITH NATURE

NEW ENVIRONMENTALISM: THE HUMANS MUST MESS WITH NATURE AND SET IT RIGHT. NATURE MUST MEET THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE ENVIRONMENTALISTS AND WORK ACCORDING TO THE VALUE SYSTEM OF THE ENVIRONMENTALISTS.

POSTSCRIPT

THAT NATURE IS RUNNING SHORT OF OXYGEN IN THE OCEAN AND THAT THE OCEANIC LIFE FORMS LIKE CORAL REEFS NEED HUMAN INTERVENTION SO THEY WILL HAVE ENOUGH OXYGEN AND ARTIFICIAL CONCRETE REEFS TO SURVIVE IS A CASE WHERE THE HUMAN EGO OF THE ENVIRONMENTALIST HAS OVER-RIDDEN HIS ENVIRONMENTALISM THAT HUMANS MUST NOT MESS WITH NATURE AS WELL AS OUR RELATIVE IGNORANCE OF THE OCEAN AND THE RELATIVE INSIGNIFICANCE OF THE HUMANS ON A PLANETARY SCALE.

EXTRACT: THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF PLANETARY ENVIRONMENTALISM: 

Here we argue that the concept of the Anthropocene and of human caused planetary catastrophe by way of things like the industrial economy running on fossil fuels are inconsistent with the relative insignificance of humans on a planetary scale. Consider for example, that even as humans are worried about things like carbon pollution and the population bomb in terms of the planet being overwhelmed by the sheer number of humans on earth, humans, like all life on earth, are carbon life forms created from the carbon that came from the mantle of the planet but a rather insignificant portion of itIn terms of total weight, humans constitute 0.05212% of the total mass of life on earth. Yet we imagine that our numbers are so huge that the planet will be overwhelmed by our population bomb. All the life on earth taken together is 0.000002875065% of the crust of the planet by weight. The crust of the planet we see in the pictures from space and where we live and where we have things like land, ocean, atmosphere, climate, and carbon life forms, is 0.3203% of the planet by weight. The other 99.6797% of the planet, the mantle and core, is a place where we have never been and will never be and on which we have no impact whatsoever. In terms of the much feared element carbon that is said to cause planetary devastation by way of climate change and ocean acidification, a mass balance shows that the crust of the planet where we live contains 0.201% of the planet’s carbon with the other 99.8% of the carbon inventory of the planet  being in the mantle and core.

OUR BIBLICAL DOMINION OVER NATURE

(11) THE CONCLUSION WE DRAW FROM THIS MASS BALANCE ANALYSIS IS THAT:  

  1. The crust of the planet where we live is an insignificant portion of the planet.
  2. Life on earth is an insignificant portion of the crust of the planet. 
  3. Humans are an insignificant portion of life on earth. 

Although it is true that humans must take care of their environment, we propose that the environment should have a more rational definition because the mass balance above does not show that humans are a significant force on a planetary scale or that they are in a position to either save it or to destroy it even with the much feared power of their fossil fueled industrial economy. And that implies that it is not possible that there is such a thing as an Anthropocene in which humans are the dominant geological force of the planet.

Like ants and bees, humans are social creatures that live in communities of humans so that when they look around all they see are humans. This is the likely source of our human oriented view of the world. Paul Ehrlich’s overpopulation theory is derived from his first visit to India which he described as “people people people people people!” It is this biased view of the planet that makes it possible for us to extrapolate Calcutta to the planet and come up with the fearful image described by Jeff Gibbs as “Have you every wondered what would happen if a single species took over an entire planet?”

EXTRACT:

It appears that the humans have overestimated themselves but perhaps they have a right to do so given their technological advances and all the things they have built such as ships, factories, aircraft, spaceships, and things like the Empire State Building. Taking all that into account we find that the weight of the ocean is 1.4E21 kg or 1.4E18 tonnes. The 7.8E9 humans on earth with an average weight of 62.5 kg is 287E6 tonnes. The weight of all the things that humans have built is 1.1E12 tonnes. This means that the weight of the ocean is about billions of times the weight of all the humans on earth and millions of times the combined weight of all the humans and all the things that humans have built.

That the ocean is threatened by humans is nonsensical in view of its immense size and complexity and the relative insignificance of humans and their technological and industrial civilizationWhat makes the ocean worrywartism even more ridiculous is that we don’t really know the ocean. We are now in the year 2021, just beginning to study the ocean at sufficient depth to make the kind of assessments about human impacts on the ocean that has been assumed by the egotistical humans.

RELIGION AND ENVIRONMENTALISM DERIVE FROM FROM MAN’S ASPIRATION TO CONTROL NATURE AND THEY ARE BOTH SUPERSTITION. WE HUMANS ARE INSIGNIFICANT ON A GLOBAL SCALE BUT THE HUMAN ASPIRATION TO BE IN CONTROL OF THE PLANET CREATES IMAGINATIONS LIKE THIS.
