WHAT TO DO WITH THE TRUTH ?




1. It's said we sit on a weather time bomb
2. We are in the brink of a mayor catastrophe
3. Let's get ready for floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves
4. Hurricanes with high power
5. The rising of sea level and wildfires
6. Wildlife in extinction and Arctic ice melting


Looking at this landscape what to do?

Gilad Shalit Tape

It's been one year since Gilad Shalit was abducted by Palestinian extremists, the questions are:
Who got him? Where? In what conditions? What the Israeli Governmet is doing to free him?

He should be at home, with his family, his friends...think about it...

Transcurrio un anio desde que extremistas Palestinos secuestraron a Gilad Shalit, las preguntas son:

Quien lo tiene? Donde? en que condiciones?

Que es lo que el Gobierno de Israel esta haciendo para liberarlo?

El deberia estar en su casa, con su familia, sus amigos, piensalo...

BIODIVERSITY

A brief definition of biodiversity, is all the set of living beings, the atmosphere in which they live and the relation that they keep with other species.
Biodiversity is a contraction of biological diversity. Biodiversity reflects the number, variety and variability of living organisms. It includes diversity within species and between species and within the ecosystem.


Biodiversity is the variability among living organisms from all sources, including terrestrial, marine, aquatic, and ecological
complexes of which they are part. The loss of the biodiversity finds its cause in the acceleration of the climatic change
simultaneously, is a consequence of the human activity.

Global warming represents a profound and emerging threat to biodiversity around the world. It means, that in a global scale, the loss of biodiversity is recognized like one of the most critical environmental problems that the humanity faces at the moment, as we already know, as temperatures rise, habitats for many plants and animals will change, depriving them of the homes and niches to which they have adapted.

their wintering habitats

Polar bears
could be affected by
loss of sea life.



The speed with which global warming occurs is critically important for wildlife, and that the accelerating rates of warming we can expect in the coming decades are likely to put large numbers of species at risk.
Species in the higher latitudes of the northern hemisphere, where the warming will be greatest, may have to migrate. Plants may need to move 10 times faster than they did at the end of the last ice-age. Very few plant species can move at rates faster than one kilometer per year, and yet this is what will be required in many parts of the world.[①]

In Africa,
the nyala antelope is vulnerable
to expected habitat change
in Malawi's Lengwe National Park. We are talking mainly about the conservation of the biological diversity, creating protected areas as they are: National parks,
Forests, areas of wild life, reserves etc… and the efforts by the conservation of rare, threatened or vulnerable species to the
changes in the environment .
Also it is necessary to conserve botanical diversity of species in zoos, botanic gardens, seeds banks, centers of production of
seeds etc…

We can conclude, the natural species are extinguishing to a greater rate than the one that the natural processes of extension
cause.

WHAT CAN BE DONE
Preserve more critical areas (terrestrial and marine) that harbor unique or unusually high levels of biological diversity, construct corridors between fragmented ecosystems to increase species numbers and preserve genetic diversity, repair damage to ecosystems so that they can once again provide critical services to humans and other constituent species.

Cerezas en los Altos del Golan




El pasear por los Altos del Golan en la primavera, es ante todo un deleite a los ojos para los seres que aman la naturaleza, es una explosion de color y aromas. Estos paisajes atraen a 1,750,000 visitantes anualmente entre turistas israelies y extranjeros que disfrutan de las reservas naturales, de las costas del Kineret (mar de Galilea), las nieves del Monte Hermon en el invierno, lugares arqueologicos y zonas de interes de la historia militar.
Es una zona que en los ultimos 25 anos ha florecido en todos aspectos, quien se hubiera imaginado que en lo que antes eran campos de minas ahora se ven blancos campos de cultivo del algodon, en ves de ver el alambre de puas del pasado, ahora se ven vallas que guardan al ganado, las vacas y las ovejas pastan en los verdes campos, en lo que antes fueron campos de batalla ,ademas de una gran extension de vinedos de los mas altos en calidad mundial, los granjeros cultivan manzanas, peras, cerezas, frambuezas, en la zona norte del Golan, en la zona sur cultivan ciruelas, duraznos, nectarinas, mangos, uvas, bananas y paltas. En general muchas industrias se han desarrollado en el Golan.

Algunos Datos de Interes:

Area de los Altos del Golan 250,000 acres
Espacio Agricola Cultivado 5,000 acres
Huertas 4,000 acres
Produccion de Flores 35,000 toneladas
Pastos Naturales 100,000 acres
Ganado y Ovejas 20,000 cabezas
Vacas Lecheras 5,000 cabezas
Produccion de Leche 60,000,000 litros de leche anuales
Empresas Industriales unas 30

Estan invitados a visitar los Altos del Golan seran bien recibidos se los dice una Cereza paseadora
