Undergoing the "Climate Change" we must change ourself... take a lot of measures for to reduce the "aftermath"... it's will be more visible by all of use... We must reduce our Carbone Dioxide "mark"! CO2 growth is one "trouble" and it's come with lot of others... It's one part of "greenhouse gas" and it's come with several other "Fluorinated greenhouse gases", they exist six of them at this time (why at this time, because everybody do mistakes, scientists, physicists, seekers, engineers... without exception! Simple employed or "Civil Servant". However despite this real facts, if a lot of us work, had worked hard... we haven't the same "pay"!... ):
Carbon dioxide (CO2) [EVERYBODY TALK ABOUT IT BUT IT ISN'T ALONE!]
Methane (CH4) [often released by the melting of permafrost, due to the warmer temperatures, consequences of climate change!] And released, equally by exploitation of oil field:
https://frama.link/The_World_Is_Hemorrhaging_Methane Released equally, unfortunately, by livestock!...
Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6)
And the winer is: "Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HFCs)"!!! [[[23000 time more powerful than CO2]]] And continue to grow dangerously in our "atmosphere! https://frama.link/Hydrochlorofluorocarbons
(but the release of the methane in our atmosphere is a serious threat equally, you can trust me! However, when you know the "name" of our "enemy", we can fight him!!...)
Do you know where we can find it? Too often in luxurious cars, houses, flats and big companies, heat pomp... they exist solutions since long time in that case: "magnetic refrigeration"!!!!!! Probably not "ready" few years ago??... But "functional" now!!
We had to make "choices"; continue to enlarge the ozone hole... or make our planet earth more "warmer"!...
Why not make a map of particular places affected by climate change or other "disaster", outbreak, or "conflict"? Making a map "cheaper" affordable for rescue crew and corresponding exactly of what they need... faster intervention limit the amount of life lost... "anticipation" of potential "warning" reduce significantly all: "COST"!... You're feeling not concerned by climate change, your wrong! And if you aren't lucky, (and not prepared...) you will be soon:
Flooding, land slide, twister, cyclone, drought... and them consequences on our day life and in therm of COST! We are all concerned! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ This example below, it's what happened recently in Corsica (2015), and it's "nothing" compared of a nearest future (and actual "area" around the world) if we are unable to take some crucial decision in the "right time"!: http://bit.ly/1jknEph
(And this one is a map of Coquimbo a City of Chile, showing the area hitting by the earthquake in September (2015), the roads was present on the map, but not the buildings. https://frama.link/emergencymap However, now, all buildings are drawn! http://osm.org/go/MbM0I3Q?layers=H&m=
Do you think this map it's for to prepare the "Apocalypse" on Planet Earth? If you tough that, you really stupid and not really "advised"... a day we will be able to do the same thing on an other planet, but this day is in a far "future", except if we are able discover giant "news"... and in not so far future, the "control" of "birth" will be an "obligation" in each nations, however and of course, we have all the right to fund a family! For us human and our sustainability. Do you remember last year the: "Nepal Earthquake"? For the most of us we don't leave in Nepal, and probably you don't care about it, with what wrong over there or elsewhere! And you're wrong, we are all concerned and pay all the "bill"!
This where this map can "interact" and with a lot of things and "behaviours" help us to reduce the waste and the "money"... improve the rescue system and the knowledge of each other... For to make a better world it's an "hard task", everybody have his own "responsibilities", each countries.
"On Saturday April 25 at 11:56am local time, an M7.8 earthquake began 82 km (51 mi) NW of Nepal’s capital of Kathmandu. The event was followed by many aftershocks, the largest being an M7.3 on May 12, 17 days after the mainshock. The toll included about 9000 fatalities, 23,000 injuries, more than 500,000 destroyed houses, and about 270,000 damaged houses" (source: "USGS").
Nepal Earthquake the "work" of OpenStreetMap contributors and the ease to us it if you have all skill needed: https://frama.link/Nepal_earthquake
If you feel not concerned by all dramatic event around the world, natural disaster or not, climate change and his aftermath, you're WRONG! And you could be endure the same, a day. Why you're wrong? Because we pay "all" the bill, some more than others... It's for this reasons or others below, why we must all to reduce the "cost"!
We're billion humans on planet earth and lot of of us have an Internet access! With a little time we can build big things! AND REDUCE THE COST, with a little bit "time"! The map: "http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us20002926#map" As you can see, we can't zoom in for to see all roads or "standing houses", by your fault, contributors who haven't all time, all skill needed (you have the ability to change the layer tile and to select: "street")! Nepal is one natural disaster but we already endure the affect of climate change and it will be worse, even we are on the path to the CHANGE! We must to REDUCE the cost, not make more: "RIOTS", even we have sometime, a lot of reasons to be "angry". For to resume, when you want to participate of this project, who aren't really "one" project, you must do your best. Why to do that, why using this map, there is lot of others? They haven't the same "goal" and this one is completely FREE and everyone can use it and improve it for his own need (if you have the competences)!
Of course it's completely FREE of use and you can use it in your own public report as you need, you have just the obligation to show this mention: “© OpenStreetMap contributors” somewhere. Below it's an other example, integration of the map in a "report" (look the page 65-66, you can read all if you need it, in this case, have a nice reading for 494p): http://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/NCSTAR/NIST.NCSTAR.3.pdf
When someone want to help the community in OSM he have the "obligation" to do that "correctly". Numbers of journalists use it equally, for several purpose often those with no lucrative "spirit"... Doctors without borders too... humanitarians team equally!)
But, they exist poorest countries (Cities, towns, villages) with less amount, resources, for to fight the "climate change"... who aren't themselves "RESPONSIBLE" of mass reject of greenhouse gas in to the atmosphere! And those "aftermath" on all of us, on human health... We must all reduce the "COST" in several sectors! For to fight the climate change and his "aftermath"... and for to change more "quickly"!... And because after this "challenge" an other waiting for us: "the hunting of new resources"! And it's will be over our head: "IN THE SPACE"! NASA hunting and redirection asteroid mission, it will be a reality very soon, for several purpose and because all earth resources aren't eternal:
Several idea for this goal are underway, but you can be sure, it's will be just the "beginning"!... Our future is over our head, it's a reality of us earthling! However the path will be long. The space is a huge reserve of all resources and not only...
But on earth we must preserve our must important jewel "the nature"!
This project need volunteers, serious and perfectly conscious why and "how" we must reduce the cost!
We are in fight against Climate Change! Protect our planet earth, it's protect ourself!
If you don't want to do that for yourself, so, do that for:
