… srečajo morskega psa?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(Če so se vam doslej ribe zdele butaste v primerjavi z ljudmi, se vam po branju tega posta zelo verjetno ne bodo več :)

Torej, kaj naredijo ribe? Ali:

a) rečejo: “Ne verjamemo v morske pse. To je samo lažna propaganda.”
In plavajo nemoteno naprej, morskemu psu naravnost v žrelo.

b) rečejo: “Nevarnost! Počasneje!”
In plavajo naprej, čeprav nekoliko bolj počasi, plenilcu naravnost v gobec za večerjo.

c) ne rečejo nič, samo kot blisk urno spremenijo smer.
In čim hitreje odplavajo stran od nevarnosti.

Seveda je jasno, kateri odgovor je pravi. Kaj pa ljudje? Kaj delamo zadnjih 40 let, odkar vemo za katastrofo, ki jo delamo okolju in planetu? Večinoma to, kar je opisano v odgovorih a) in b). Zato nobena okoljska konferenca, dobri sklepi, sporazumi, odlični nameni, niso prinesli sprememb.

Genialen opis ni nastal na mojem zelniku; slišala sem ga v TED talku, na katerem James Greyson v nekaj minutah opiše, kje po njegovem tiči rešitev. Ker rešitve, ki jih zadnjih 40 let predlagajo, očitno ne zaležejo.

Ker sem vrtnarka, sem aktualnim globalnim problemom zlahka našla vzporednice v umiranju zemlje in upadanju njene rodovitnosti. Takole – tudi na vrtu in na njivi lahko uporabimo 3 različne pristope:

a)  nadaljujemo na enak način (lopatenje, uporaba različnih -cidov in umetnih gnojil …) in pričakujemo drugačen rezultat. Seveda ga ne bo. Izid je že vnaprej znan – slab.

b) nadaljujemo na enak način, samo malo bolj počasi (manj strupov, tako kot je to v integrirani pridelavi). Izid bo enak, samo malo dlje bo trajalo.

c) gremo v popolnoma drugo smer in nehamo delati na obstoječi način: nič lopatenja, uporaba zastirke, zaščita in vzpodbujanje življenja v prsti, uporaba permakulture, biodinamike, ekološke pridelave, predvsem pa zdrave kmečke pameti – in izid bo garantirano drugačen.

Rešitve, o katerih govori James Greyson, so genialno preproste. Kar dobre rešitve večinoma ali kar vedno tudi so. Dejstvo je, da bomo z enakimi dejanji vedno znova prišli do enakih rezultatov, pa če si še tako želimo, da to ne bi bilo tako.

Pa menda ja nismo bolj butasti od rib, mi, krona stvarstva … :)

So ... What do the fish do, when they meet a shark?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(If the fish seem stupid to you in comparison to people, there is a strong possibility that you will change your mind after reading this post :)

So, what do the fish do? Do they:

a) say: “We don`t believe in sharks. It is just some false propaganda.”
And then keep on swimming straight forward into the mouth of the predator.

b) say: “Danger! Slow down!”
And then keep on swimming, although a little slower, straight forward into the mouth of the shark.

c) they don`t say anything, they just quickly change their direction. And speed up as to get as quickly as possible as far from the danger as possible.

The right answer is obvious, of course. But what about us, people? What have we been doing for the last 40 years since we`ve realized what we are causing to the environment and our planet? Mostly the solutions that are described in a) and b) answers. That is why no environmental conference, decisions, agreements etc. brought positive changes and solutions for the problems.

I didn`t invent this genius explanation – I have heard it from James Greyson in his TED talk, in which James Greyson explains in less than 20 minutes his views of the possible solutions for the problems we are facing today. Because, obviously, the solutions that were used in the last 40 years, obviously, don`t work.

As a gardener I understood the actual global problems in comparison to a backyard garden and its soil-aggravating problems in that way – you can use 3 different approaches:

1. continue in the same way (tilling the soil, using different -cides and artificial fertilizers …) and then cross your fingers and expect a different result – the outcome is already known – bad.

2. continue in the same way, but with “a little less of everything bad” – like the integrated agriculture does – results will be as in 1. – a little later but still the same.

3. radically change the approach – no till, no poison, use mulch, preserve life in soil, introduce permaculture, biodinamycs, organic gardening and above all some common sense – and the results will be different.

James Greyson`s explanations are very simple. As the best solutions usually or even always are. The fact is that with the same actions we will get the same results – no matter how hard we wish this wasn`t true.

Hopefully we won`t prove to be more stupid than the fish … :)

One thought on “Kaj naredijo ribe, ko … / What do the fish do, when … *

  1. Dober prispevek!
    Že precej let je, kar sem brala o biovrtnarjenju in dokaj tako delam (glede na to, da imam na vrt skoraj 100 km daleč, pač ni vse popolno.
    Sicer ne vem natančno, kam moj delež spada, delam precej po svoje, ni pa strupov in nisem sovražna niti do plevelov, no ja, populim že, kar je res čez mero, ampak tudi pleveli imajo svojo vlogo in svoj čar! ;-) Pa še hrana so marsikateri. Itak smo mi, krona stvarstva :-), tisti, ki smo določili, kaj je plevel in kaj je potrebno! :-)
