The ‘destiny’ of humanity, linked to the ecosystem

It may be that ‘destiny’ is already reaching us, because reality is very stubborn and insists on overcoming fiction and we are already in 2022. In ‘When fate reaches us‘ (‘Soylent Grenn’, American dystopian science fiction film released in 1973), human beings ate cookies: soylent of various colors, they were the only source of food, since fresh food was a privilege reserved for the dominant sectors. We are not going to reveal what the raw materials with which they made those cookies were, specifically, the green ones.

The film presents realities such as the depletion of resources or the greenhouse effect.

awareness of the delicate balance of ecosystem is one of the goals of ‘Move for recycling‘. It is in danger and “broken”. This is the complaint made by José Gracia, responsible for the awareness and information campaign ‘Move for recycling’. These environmental volunteers have undertaken a collaboration with Cecam for the protection of the environment, being present in the release of turtles carried out yesterday by the Center for the Study and Conservation of Marine Animals.

José Gracia y Calvo is an expert in the environment, appealing to the responsibility of citizens to be more respectful of the environment. An activity closely related to the work carried out by Cecam. “We carried out an information campaign to raise awareness about recycling on the beaches of Ceuta, a campaign of the City financed in collaboration with Ecoembes Y ecoglass” assures Gracia y Calvo.

The work they carry out is to draw attention to the presence of garbage on the beaches “that is generated daily by users and that which comes from the sea” and to evaluate the impact that this garbage has on the natural environment and in the specific case of the activity carried out with Cecam, “on turtles and cetaceans in the waters of Ceuta”. They are synergistic goals. “His (Cecam) is for the recovery of marine animals and ours is for prevention, to protect these animals,” says Gracia y Calvo.

A cooperative effort that made no sense if we were all aware that the planet is our home and that the beach could be our living room, where we don’t leave the remains of a meal on the floor. It is a psychological issue that implies a change of mentality that has to be produced but for this “you have to be giving the stick, day by day” assures Gracia y Calvo. “One makes the effort to carry the tortilla and the beer, but it seems that one has no obligation to load the garbage that has been generated, throw it in the containers or take it home to be able to recycle that garbage in the appropriate containers in your neighborhood” .

The delicate balance of the natural environment is something that not everyone is aware of “and we have already broken that balance and that we are at serious risk for the human species. We don’t realize that all this imbalance cannot be absorbed by nature” says José Gracia with a very serious gesture.

Stupid turtle
If a species is lost, the food chain is broken.

Without turtles or cetaceans, the ecosystem “It breaks and with it, the food chain”, assures the representative of the awareness campaign ‘Go for recycling‘ who insists that “we are not going to have fish to eat. Saving the turtles is saving our diet.” Gracia y Clavo affirms that it is a question of survival. “It is no longer a question of environmentalismnor of civility. It is pragmatism. We are going to end up eating colored pills, like in futuristic movies.” Nail soylent 21st century

A future that may become the present sooner than we can believe, and Gracia and Clavo’s predictions about what future generations will be able to eat may not be an unreasonable prediction and they will have to choose between the soylent yellow, red or green.
