THOUGHTFUL AND VIRTUOUS PROJECTS
The current health crisis is a first strong signal of the consequences of the loss of biodiversity. Biologists fear the emergence of other pathogens as natural ecosystems become increasingly extinct. For plants, the chalarose ash borer originating from China, the boxwood borer, are recent examples. For human beings, after Ebola, H1N1, here comes Corona, freed from ecosystems that had kept them locked up, endemic until now.
Similarly, the availability of fresh drinking water is becoming a concern in some areas of the world. Nitrate pollution, eutrophication and salinisation of coastal aquifers are metropolitan threats. These concerns are similar to those related to the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which contributes to climate change.
Rising air and water temperatures are causing sea levels to rise and the intensity of storms, droughts and fires to become more intense and longer lasting (Source: OXFAM). To fight these harmful phenomena, engage in thoughtful and virtuous projects.
