#####WE MUST CHANGE#####
Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, task manager: http://tasks.hotosm.org/user/Super-Map
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"!... And too often, too much mistakes aren't really mistakes, but "thinking" by advance!... You know the magic formula: "how to make a huge amount of money, for my pocket!...", Hard task to change and improve this world toward a better world. But you know, unemployment is a "trouble" equally"! We can't do all things, faster than we wish... at this time.):
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!! https://frama.link/magnetic-refrigeration
We had to make "choices"; continue to enlarge the ozone hole... or make our planet earth more "warmer"!... https://frama.link/climatechange
Why not make a map of particular places affected by climate change or other "disaster", outbreak, or "conflict... humans trafficking, child abuse"...? Making a map "cheaper" affordable for rescue crew, humanitarian aid 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, sea level rise... and them consequences on our day life and in term 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 at 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 a day, we will be able to organize a mapping party on: "planet Mars"!... https://frama.link/Mars 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 found a family! For us human and our sustainability. Do you remember (April 2015) 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 use 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" on the right top corner, or change the map, press the button on the bottom")! Nepal is one natural disaster but we already endure the effect of climate change and it will be worse, even we are on the path to the CHANGE! Faster the climate will change, harder for all "life" to adapt"! 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)!
This is other use of this "incredible" map: https://travel.sygic.com/
* https://frama.link/indiamap-use Numerous journalists use equally this "incredible" and "powerful" map, often those with no-profit "spirit" (in contrary of those who want to make an "huge profit")... but this map have wide range of use, in fact. http://openearth.net/#map=globe Of course, it isn't only a map, it's an open map with huge amount of "data"!... http://poachtracker.oxpeckers.org/#/map
Climate change is real! Climate change, we must change! And not only for that point! And we must be prepared to undergo his aftermath, already exist in too many countries! http://climatracker.oxpeckers.org/
A map for natural disaster: https://frama.link/ecuador-earthquake So, when you "work" on it, you must do that "carefully", seriously, it's not a game, however, you can enjoy yourself, if you like to "learn". It's not only one project, it's lot of good projects with nice intention. We are in fight, that true! But not only against climate change! https://frama.link/complex-emergency
This "incredible map" have several purpose as you can see, and we can make a map for to determine how the task for to maintain the "PEACE" around the word is all except "easy" and COSTLY!... You aren't without to know how the FREEDOM is important for all of us. Of course we have all "obligations" but we have equally numerous RIGHTS! Women like Men, and the women and children are too often persecuted (and men? "Slaughtered"!...) , victim of humans trafficking, rape and so one! We are all engage against the "barbarities", we are all humans and we have the right to have the same "rights"! That is a fact, we must change, but we must change all for to prepare the world of to morrow, for to built our future. This link below will show you an other use of this incredible map, the fight is fare to be "ended" (the fight against: "the torturers"!): https://frama.link/syrian-conflict.....
& so on!!...
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 into 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:
https://youtu.be/3UkEximY6lc And we need to reach our goal, for to develop new technology, improve the humans life, his health, his sustainability...
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!
*** Climate change, we must change! ***
Do you remember what OpenStreetMap is? It's an open Map!
Climate change isn't a "story for scientists or "engineers"... climate change is REAL and those who thought the "opposite" could be endure the aftermath more "strongly"! We don't speak about $ only, but life lost and future of our beloved: "CHILDREN"! Unfortunately, strong damages are already exist in too much countries due to the action (or leak of actions...) of climate change! Even if we can expect lot of change in the nearest future, we are too near of the threshold limit... E=MC2... in this case, we can call him: "INERTIA"!
More quickly our planet will be more warm, more harder for the enter life on planet earth to ADAPT!...
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:
https://frama.link/climatechage (seek the mistake... do you see the "map"?!...)
I'm for the PEACE, what do you thing about that point?!... I'm just a citizen who do "his JOB" at the "correct time"! AND YOU MUST RESPECT "MY" CHOICE (without conditions!...)!! (Even if I have lost my "faith" of the "system", too often "corrupt" around this WORLD! Until someone brought me the proof of all the contrary!...). If you don't want to change, you must be "ready" to undergo all consequences (don't remember, often you have lovely house(s), quiet "children"!!)!
Postscript.: At the latest news in Peru, it's approximately 300 persons who have lost their LIFE causing by landslide, mudslide, aftermath of heavy downpour!!! And equally due to the "uncontrolled" constructions "everywhere"!... And you know what, EVERYWHERE it's the same!!!... And because they built near the: "RIVER"!... We cut the trees, our enormous MISTAKES?!...
