MDG Goal 7 is, “to integrate the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programs to reverse loss of environmental resources”. Biodiversity loss has been slowed somewhat, and between 1990 and 2005 the percent of forested land has declined 1% from 31.3% to 30.3% while the protected terrestrial and marine habitats have risen to 12.1%. Only twelve percent of the earth is still covered by intact forest ecosystems. From 1990 to 2000, more than half a million square miles of forest were deforested globally - an average of 53,000 square miles a year. For the past two decades the United States has shown a 0.2% annual net forest growth. Canada, doesn’t report the -0.02% rate of deforestation due to agricultural and urban rezoning, not including clearcuts expected to naturally regenerate, to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Mexico at -1.1% has the fifth fastest rate of deforestation. Western Europe is the only continent that shows a net rate of forestation, 0.1%, due to the non-reporting of Russian clearcutting of non-regenerating taiga. Tropical rainforests also fail to regenerate after clearcutting. Africa shows the highest rate of deforestation, -0.8%, Central and South America -0.4%, Oceania -0.2%, and Asia -0.1%. There are few forest types that regenerate naturally after clearcutting and none that return with the pre-distur. The best solution is to replant in native tree species with the intention of including urban communities, with a fair share of exotic shade and fruit trees, in the local forest, and to require sound forest management plans that limit logging to the logging road, mountain trails and wilderness campsites at planned development sites, under the shelter of the forest canopy, particularly on public land. Clearcutting, pre-commercial thinning and the felling of trees with a diameter at breast height (dbh) greater than 24 inches should be prohibited on public land and to protect prime timberland zoning. The primary driver of deforestation worldwide is dependence on fuelwood for heating and cooking in urban communities. As of 2015 the United States of American is expected to be the world’s leading exporter of petroleum. Due to the existing unrecognized generosity of the Saudi oil sheikdoms there is no method of increasing United Nations (UN) statistical accounts of official development assistance (ODA) for 2015 greater than by promising everyone equal prices for fossil fuels in order to provide a break to consumers in least developed nations who have been paying many times more, although they earn many times less, to reverse deforestation caused by urban firewood and charcoal consumption. This equal price fossil fuel cooking program should be partnered with the agreed upon carbon emission credits for multinational and charcoal companies alike, with an eye for cost-effective solar power. If the United States is to have any success at selling fossil fuels to reverse deforestation, they should ratify (1) the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) as well as the Cartagena Protocol and Kuala-Lumpur Supplemental Protocol that pointedly hold the United States and other nations responsible for corporate liability for the transboundary spread of biologically (genetically GM) modified organisms, to reduce uninsurable GM financed political risk and help timber companies to diversify and benefit sustainably from forest products and industrial development such as rural broadband and jogging roads; and (2) the Law of the Sea to create a civilian Fishing Safety and Health Administration (FSHA) to regulate the nation’s most dangerous industry. The USA, with 0.2% net annual forest growth, despite the world’s greatest demand for wood pulp and paper products, or the reader, should propose a new protocol to ban clearcutting, the cutting of trees greater than 24 inches diameter at breast height (dbh) and promote native species nurseries. Harvesting should be limited to the absolute minimum needed to create planned roads and human habitations under the forest canopy. Timber and wood products should not be purchased from nations with a net rate of deforestation. Replanting should be done in native species. Fruit trees do not grow well at high elevation. The plan is for rural and urban communities to be included into the local forests this millennium, despite the roads and buildings, to achieve the highest attainable quality of life, water, air and soil. Polluters, including deforesters, need nurseries to breed native tree species for replanting; and the fossil fuel not to cut them all down. Forest growth, for watershed, air and soil protection of wildlife and human habitat, is a stately priority for everyone this Millennium.
Free Windows 7 Download for Windows 8 Please HA-8-4-14
Windows 8 is defective; it turned my word processor into an “etch-a-sketch”, wherefore Microsoft should provide consumers with Windows 7 for free. A small technology company based in Portland, Maine, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Microsoft over elements included in Windows 8. SurfCast Inc. filed the complaint Tuesday, November 1, 2012, in U.S. District Court in Portland asking for unspecified damages. The lawsuit claims Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft Corp. is using elements known as live tiles, rectangular icons linked to websites, apps and other items. SurfCast says it developed the elements in the 1990s. The lawsuit claims Microsoft is using the tiles technology on operating systems including the recently launched Windows 8, found on personal computers, phones, tablets and other devices. Microsoft says it's confident it can prove the claims are without merit, although it is Windows 8 touch screen that is without merit. Having been forced to purchase Microsoft 8 after my computer was destroyed by a bender bug that caused half the screen to be scrambled in certain commercial establishments and to be fixed when bending the screen, for a short while, before having to pay $65 to encase my hardrive and $399 for the only affordable Microsoft Word operating system. Windows 8 forces users to use the touch screen Start screen. The touch screen Start screen conceals the more practical list at the touch of the Start button and this is easily capitalized upon by malicious software, both online and installed by the touchy feely factories of Windows 8 compatible computers. Windows 8 is opposed to a new Google docs computer. Chromebooks, the inexpensive laptops powered by Google's browser-based Chrome OS, typically have as little as 2GB of RAM and sport 16GB of on-board storage. Neither Google docs, nor Open Office, the free Microsoft Word alternative, have been satisfactory to produce high quality documents with tables, charts and photos. Apple, Windows and Google word processors need to be compatible. Windows also advertises online web hosting by Microsoft, but the thought of saving my files with these corporations should not be hard-wired into the computer with the other advertisements. Google is the only one of these corporations with an email address and it did not pass the censuring Dr. at the inception of AJAX pop-up email compose screen, who wrote, “these links are broken”, although they do provide the Bcc: (secret email list) at mail.google.com/mail/h/ on basic html gmail for slow connections. My computer seems designed to torture me with writer’s block. Most of the links on the ASUS touch screen are linked to websites which require subscriptions I don’t have and don’t want, such as Norton Antivirus, the stereotypical pop-up. The factory installed games, other than pinball, even want ‘wildcoins’, purchasable online, after a free trial. To make the writer’s block worse, the touch screen randomly cuts in when I touch the mouse. The screen magnification is also touch sensitive. Finally, there is no paragraph up and down buttons to help organize notes into chapters. It has taken me more than a month to complete a forestry degree for people with psychiatric disabilities, namely the $669 (2014) mental disability, to make up for the paucity of support from the plagiarists of my medical textbook of 2013, and so far Windows 8 has not produced a single document. Windows 8 is yet another insult preventing U.S. Customs from graduating from Homeland Security in 12 years from the Act of Nov. 2002. Surf Cast’s patent infringement case regarding touch screen advertising technology from the 1990s, that is used successfully by slow-start cell-phones, with cellular wifi, should be upheld and to compensate consumers for this experimental technology in violation of the protection of human test subjects, in regards to non-investigation/non-advertisement. Microsoft must provide Windows 8 users the non-touch-screen option – fast, free Windows 7 downloads without hassle or defect - Alex Kibkalo, a Russian, was arrested by FBI recently, to the March 19, 2014 news report in Microsoft news, for leaking pre-release Windows 8 builds to a blogger in 2012. He is now facing federal criminal charges following an allegations that he stole trade secrets. The news media is blocked and infringing on Windows 8 screen magnification, probably regarding the rumour he has defected to Russia, so popular amongst southern Baptists. The F.B.I. needs to drop the charges to avoid any cold war recidivism, discrimination against Russian nationals of the United States or ex. rel. computer scientists, from the age of AJAX, killer of the Bcc: (secret email list) since summer 2013, successor to now abolished Department of Commerce ICANN extortionist of web hosting privacy fees, of about $1 a month. Windows 8 consumers need free Windows 7 downloads to get rid of that touchy feely start screen. Kibalko was the person who leaked “Activation Server Software Development Kit,” a propriety system that is used by Microsoft and its OEN partners to prevent the unauthorized copying of Microsoft programs, which conceals my computer programs, that were once accessible with one click from the Start button. The program menu is confusing and easily manipulated by third parties to conceal the Control Panel Add-Remove Program function. Screen size has shifted at least twenty times during the course of one hour. Free Windows 7 download for Windows 8 owners.
