More and more RECORDs are broken!|
Think back 20 years ago: Compare, storms, floods, earthquakes with happenings today!
Nature conservation is more urgent than ever!
Did you hear about the snow / ice record? Did you hear about RECORD fires?
Did you hear about RECORD flooding? Did you hear about record earthquakes?
Every record tells us that very unusual things are happening, things that could harm us, could harm our children, our future!

We think breaking a RECORD is NOT normal!
Breaking Conservation News Headlines August 2014|
08/18/2014 - The phrase Water Conservation is used more often nowadays. Only a tiny fraction of the water on Earth can be used as drinking water. Human activities have polluted more and more water.
Read our booklet how to conserve water
08/17/2014 - BSB members report huge environmental damages in the war zones in the Ukraine and in Northern Iraq
08/15/2014 - Several new studies clearly show, that the amount of pollutants has increased, reducing humans life expectancy = meaning many of you will die too early!
08/12/2014 - Biodiversity on Earth is down ~29 percent. Less variety results in less knowledge, less food variety, less medicines for humans.
08/10/2014 - Far over one billion people depend on drinking water from glaciers. Imagine what they will do when shrinking glaciers are melted away?
BSB gives tips how to reduce pollutants
BSB also promotes water conservation providing solutions!
08/05/2014 - Earthquake in China, floods in Italy, destructive storms: The new normal! Record Co2 carbon dioxide and methane amounts in Earth's atmosphere and record deforestation of http://www.keepbanderabeautiful.org/rainforests.html"> Earth's forests have changed Earth's weather patterns
08/03/2014 - New research: Drivers waste a lot of gasoline = money without being faster, but with more risk. Green driving saves money and is good for your health!
08/01/2014 - New Record: Rain-forest areas on a new low. Deforestation is changing Earth Climate . Less trees equals less rainfall equals less flora, less CO2 storage, additionally carbon dioxyd acidifies Earth oceans, endangering marine life, reducing calcium in coral reefs, reducing the amount of marine food harvested and needed by humans. One third of Earth population depends on food out of Earths Oceans less fauna, less humans in the future... killed by less food caused by more floods and more intensive hurricanes
Breaking Conservation News Headlines July 2014
07/31/2014 - CO2 carbon dioxide levels continue to climb, RECORD high for the last 13000 years

07/20/2014 - The gigantic trash pile in the Pacific ocean is 100 times larger than in 1970, changing Earth greenhouse gases leading to a changed Earth's climate, resulting in changed storm and weather patterns, endangering humans and killing marine life! Another "trash island" is building up in the Atlantic ocean...
07/17/2014 - Humans need to drink water every day. Good unpolluted water and healthy drinking water becomes more scarce and more difficult for many. But riparian areas are destroyed every day, endangering the future of many!
07/14/2014 - BSB research data show continued melting of Arctic sea ice. Melted ice is fresh water changing the water chemistry of ocean water, changing its salinity, and is changing Earth's ocean currents. Less arctic ice will reflect less sunlight, causing higher water temperatures, causing methane ice on the ocean floor to melt. Methane is 23 times more potent as greenhouse gas as carbon dioxide
07/09/2014 - BSB research shows new record: Over 2 billion cows live today on Earth, almost all of them will be eaten by humans. Cows breathe in oxygen, breathe out CO2 carbon dioxide, + cows produce a lot of methane, a very potent greenhouse gas.
07/07/2014 - NEW RECORD in Power demand equals Air pollution RECORD
Water usage for electric power production was never higher
Solar panels = Photovoltaic PV prices have dropped again. Ask us for advice and get get the most for your money!
07/01/2014 - BSB research update: Warmer ocean water has higher evaporation rates, resulting in more flood events, leading to a strong variation of ocean salinity, resulting in changed Ocean currents and in more violent weather. The stored Carbon dioxide
Humans are an important part of Nature! Everybody can help, can make a difference!|
Burning Global Issues: To understand why Nature Conservation is essential for human survival, we need to collect the facts, we need to stay updated with environmental news, we need to think how all things are connected, need each other to let the whole system function! BSB shows you the 'big picture'. Every responsible person should be a Nature Conservationist, should try to update his/her Nature knowledge!
