International research shows that in 2018 2.5% of global CO2 emissions were from aviation. From 2013-2018 CO2 emissions from aviation increased by 32% and this can triple due to post Covid travel boom. For example, a return flight London to New York emits 1,100kg of CO2 per passenger. Lower CO2 emissions should be the target and the use of SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) instead of fossil fuel is highly encouraged. SAF is produced from used cooking oil and household forestry waste. Further more, improved aircraft & engine design and making passengers more environmental conscious would also help to attain greener flights.

The undervalued price of arable land given to the God of Money for the sake of a few rich persons. When will mankind learn the land which can be farmed and give produce is priceless compared to the concrete blocks which are polluting the air we breathe? Will it be when it is too late and man will have to scavenge for food and only possible to breath ‘clean’ air from artificial sources?

Photos show contrastic realities of wildlife living in their natural habitat with a growing concern that these must adapt to new surroundings which are often overwhelmed with human progress and urban sprawl.

Photo 2 Dragonfly – “I prefer a pond or stream rather than this cold piece of steel!” Here, the dragonfly is seen in a different habitat than the one it is used to. Photo 3 Bee “Let me be, wild and free!” The wasp is admired in its natural habitat. Photo 4 Building The spreading of urban developments destroying wildlife habitats.
