The Scream of our Environment
Just 15 Years?
In possibly only 15 years we may face an unsolvable
environmental problem that is clearly visible already today.
Politicians around the world are deeply concerned
and protectors of the environment demand immediate measures.
The press feels validated with each environmental disaster
and everybody seems to know everything.
However, there is always someone else to blame.
Blue Building Foundation, with focus on
the environment and the eye for details
A cautionary tale...
The center point are the actions of the human race
Lets start with some thought provoking facts…
In the last decades, Antarctica has lost more ice than what has been added to it by annual precipitation. In 2006, this net loss amounted to approximately 196 Gigatons (1 Gigaton = 1 Billion tons)
To put this into perspective: 6215 tons, which is equal to 155 trucks( of 40 tons each)… are melting every second. The reason is the 5⁰ C increase in the last 15 years.
And what is mankind doing??
…..it continues to increase the CO₂ liability.

We seem to be building the tower of Babel - With Rubbish
The Blue Building Foundation wants to give millions voices, the opportunity to change the environment in the most sensitive way…. And we need your help
The drab monotony of everyday life?
Mother nature is deteriorating every day, millions die of disease and famine, water supplies are diminishing or are being poisoned, forests are vanishing, animal species are disappearing….what are the people in power really doing about these issues?
...Making hugh profits at the world expense!
So, what can we do about it? The most frequent answer of “I cant do anything alone” has to change; by rallying together.
The master key to our future is what we, the individuals can do today by banding together
Independently and well as in close collaboration with governments, corporates and the people we will focus on finding a neutral and right solution to change the environment in the best possible way.
