AÇORES ATAQUE DA CULTURA DE BETÃO

Açores é Natureza.
Dispensamos a cultura do betão, túneis, incineradora, teleféricos e mineração do mar profundo. Qualquer definição de turismo sustentável que se confunda com isto precisa de ser repensada.
Somos uns privilegiados por aqui viver. Não estraguem aquilo que nos foi naturalmente oferecido.
Saibamos cuidar daquilo que é tão maior do que a nossa breve passagem.

Aqui ou acolá uma marinazita para pequenos barcos de recreio ou motos de água também num ficaba nada mal.. Um casinozito... Uns hotéis de charme. pequenitos... para não estragar a paisagem. Umas esplanadazitas, uns restaurantes gourmet, pouca coisa, só para dinamizare, criare emprego sustentabilidade. Claro, num pode faltar. E lá ao fundo, no mar, uma projecção holográfica da montanha do Pico, isso é que era tope! Podia habere uma pontezita... pequenita, claro. Bocê é um bisionário!"

ameaças e o futuro sombrio da humanidade

This is the real problem! Quoting:
“We report three major and confronting environmental issues that have received little attention and require urgent action. First, we review the evidence that future environmental conditions will be far more dangerous than currently believed. The scale of the threats to the biosphere and all its lifeforms—including humanity—is in fact so great that it is difficult to grasp for even well-informed experts. Second, we ask what political or economic system, or leadership, is prepared to handle the predicted disasters, or even capable of such action. Third, this dire situation places an extraordinary responsibility on scientists to speak out candidly and accurately when engaging with government, business, and the public. We especially draw attention to the lack of appreciation of the enormous challenges to creating a sustainable future. The added stresses to human health, wealth, and well-being will perversely diminish our political capacity to mitigate the erosion of ecosystem services on which society depends. The science underlying these issues is strong, but awareness is weak. Without fully appreciating and broadcasting the scale of the problems and the enormity of the solutions required, society will fail to achieve even modest sustainability goals.”
Worried about Earth's future? Well, the outlook is worse than even scientists can grasp

Worried about Earth’s future? Well, the outlook is worse than even scientists can grasp
Humanity is destroying Earth’s ability to support complex life. But coming to grips with the magnitude of the problem is hard, even for experts.
