Future generations will judge our action on climate change Ban Ki-Moon, UN secretary general

It was the recent climate change march in New York on September 20th that saw 100,000 people come to the streets in unity. The crowd included numerous celebrities and Politian’s.

We love the below that was made to mark the event.

Our favorite facts pulled from the video:

• In the next 100 years we could lose 50% of all species on earth

• There have been 5 mass extinctions in the earth’s history, all 5 extinctions happened when there were major changes in the carbon cycle

• We have never had a carbon dioxide spike like the one we are having now

• CO2 is acidifying the oceans and killing marine life

• Warming the oceans releases a much more volatile greenhouse gas…methane

Many things have to change, but one way we can help the planet is to create new aquaponic ecosystems that will help feed the world.

If you are interested in climate change, be sure to check out our blog about the environmental film ‘The Age Of Stupid.’

Aquaponics in India will soon be offering consultancy services. Please get in touch for more information.

Being a health-nut, London born Pippa has struggled to adjust to the lack of availability of lettuce and kale since re-locating to India. Previously naive to the extent of the worlds food struggles, she has now become obsessed with sustainability in food production and especially in India where it needs it the most (plus she’s also hoping to get her hands on some kale any day now). When she’s not writing for Aquaponics in India, she is usually found with her head in a book or in the kitchen experimenting with new vegetarian recipes.
