Save the Fish !!

前天路过商场的一个小摊位,主要是WWF在募集捐款。

在摊主的大力鼓催环保之下,笔者拿了一份资料,觉得有些有趣,所以决定在这里和大家分享。内容大致为以下:

Satisfying our demand for seafood is causing untold damage to the natural functioning of our ecosystems. Our oceans are rapidly being depleted of fish and many species forced to the brink of economic extinction. The Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that nearly 80% of world fish stocks are being exploited at or beyond sustainable levels.

With an average of 100,000 tons of seafood consumed each year, Singapore is one of the biggest seafood consumers in Asia-Pacific. It is also an important seafood hub and almost all of it is imported from the Coral Triangle, the world’s most diverse marine environment.

This guide uses an internationally agreed method to assess seafood sustainability to help you make the best seafood choices. It groups some of the most popular seafood species in Singapore into 3 categories:

RECOMMENDED: From well-managed, sustainable stocks with are not considered to be over-exploited. These species are the preferred eating choice.

THINK TWICE: From fisheries that are at risk of becoming unsustainable, due to management, environmental or stock issues. Only eat these species occasionally, if recommended options are not available.

AVOID: Considered to be over-exploited, or from unsustainable, overfished and poorly managed fisheries. Avoid eating these species at present.

You can make a difference. Help safeguard the future of our fisheries and other marine life by only choosing seafood from sustainable sources that are fished and farmed responsibly.

地球日的环保小提示

地球日

昨天是地球日,在此想提出几点环保小提示给大家,希望大家一起努力救救这个病危的地球。

  1. 减少马桶用水量:用一个1.5 公升的汽水瓶装满水,然后放进厕所的抽水马桶里,那么每次抽水都会少用1.5 公升的水。
  2. 培养良好的洗澡洗刷习惯:刷牙时把水喉关掉,别让它流个不停。尽量用花洒洗澡,而且同样的,当用肥皂洗身体的时候,把水喉关掉,避免水源的浪费。
  3. 尽量购买本地食材:购买本地食材,可以减少依赖外国进口的食品,而减少炭足迹。同时也可以帮助本地的商家,一举两得。
  4. 关掉电脑屏幕:离开电脑时,养成把电脑屏幕关掉的习惯。电脑屏幕的耗电量是十分惊人的。
  5. 拔掉插头:如果电器都没用,那么把插头都拔掉。如果的嫌麻烦,那么起码出门旅行或长期离开家里的时候,把电器的插头都拔掉。
  6. 随手关灯:当离开一个房间的时候,养成随手关灯的习惯。

环保其实没大家想像中的那么困难,主要都是习惯和思维的问题。希望大家能从这些小小的事情开始,让我们大家都尽一份力推动环保吧!

2010年的六月是纪录上最热的一个月

地球哪一端?
全球

有啥特别?
根据美国国家海洋和大气局的纪录,综合了全球海洋和陆地的温度,2010年的6月是最热的一个月。

What had happened?
June 2010 Was Hottest on Record

Where?
Global

What is it so special?
NOAA has released their global temperature data for June 2010 confirming that the month was the warmest on record, judged by combined global and ocean surface temperature.

成千的鲨鱼被屠宰,只为了鱼翅。。

发生了什么事?
日“鱼翅工厂”惨状曝光 千只鲨鱼割鳍后遭弃

地球哪一端?
日本

有啥特别?
日本的一家鱼工厂被发现堆放了上千只的废弃的鲨鱼尸体.这些鲨鱼只被取了鳍,然后就被扔在一边。

据称,该工厂地面鲜血横流,臭气熏天。当地人取鲨鱼鳍只是为了做鱼翅汤。媒体摄影师拍下了这让人震惊的图片,并表示:“这里就像地狱一样,你无法想象他们这么做只是为了一碗碗鱼翅汤。”

海洋中的鲨鱼数量正在减少,但是为了满足一些人对鱼翅汤的渴望,这种残忍的杀戮仍在继续。该工厂的厂长不仅没有反省自己的行为,反而向游人炫耀堆积如山的鲨鱼尸体。

据悉,目前海洋中双髻鲨的数量已经下降了98%,但每年仍有大约7300万只鲨鱼被捕捞取鳍,做成鱼翅汤,然后被遗弃。

请停止食用鱼翅

What had happened?
Dead in their hundreds on the dock, the sharks who have been slaughtered so Japan can use their fins for soup

Where?
Japan

What is it so special?
They are then sent by the tonne to cities such as Hong Kong and Shanghai – where the ‘premium’ meat is turned in to a delicacy. Chinese will pay higher prices for the fins – but much of this haul will go to local destinations.

The slaughter occurs on an industrial scale.

Meanwhile, the world’s shark populations are decreasing faster than BP’s share price after the oil spill.

The population of the scalloped hammerhead shark alone is down 98 per cent.

发生了什么事?
被漏油事件杀害的3000 只鸟

地球哪一端?
墨西哥湾

有啥特别?
虽然漏油事件的抢救工作已经告一段落,但是其遗留下来的祸害却是巨大无比的,首当其冲的就是野生动物,包括海鸟和海龟。最新的报告披露,已有将近3000只海鸟在这次的漏油事件里被这些黑油杀害了。

漏油事件受害者之一

What had happened?
3,000 Birds Now Killed or Covered by Oil in the Gulf

Where?
Mexico Gulf

What is it so special?
With the tentatively good news breaking that the oil flow has been halted — according to BP at least — it may be time to return the focus to the devastation the spill has wrought. A good place as any to start is with the wildlife. The birds and sea turtles that have fallen victim to the oil slick are among the most public faces of the BP spill’s destruction. And recent numbers have revealed that at least 3,000 birds have been covered or killed by the crude.

气候变化和热浪

北京的温度已经超过摄氏40度,而波士顿,纽约和费城的温度也都超过了摄氏37度,创下了单日新高。

同时7月6日,在巴格达和里亚,分别都有摄氏45和44度,虽然比平均温度还热但怎样也比不上摄氏50度的科威特。

我们正在面临着全球热浪,虽然还不至于世界末日,但却更进一步显示全球的气候变化。

“你不能一口咬定一个热浪是由全球暖化导致,但是你可以说全球暖化将会导致更多类似这种全球热浪的气候异像。”耶鲁气候变化小组的主席,安东尼说道。

2010年热浪来袭

Beijing hits a near-record 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia break 100 degrees and set new daily highs. Meanwhile, in Baghdad and Riyadh, on July 6 it was 113 and 111 degrees, warmer than average but still cooler than in Kuwait, which set the day’s world temperature high at 122 degrees….

Yes, we’re suffering a global heat wave. No, it’s not the apocalypse. But it may be a further sign of climate change.

“You can’t say any one heat wave is caused by global warming. But you can say that what global warming does is it makes events just like this more likely,” says Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change.
