  • The Great Outdoors

     

    The outdoors is one thing in this world that everyone, everywhere looks to for their recreation or work.  Varying across the globe by such staggering degrees from the icy tundra through to the steamy rain forest it incorporates the heart and sole of the planet.

     

    The icy Tundra is one of the most spectacular of the outdoors across the planet.  The icy wilderness is found at the northern and southern extremities of the planet.  An area of extreme cold temperatures very little other than the simple plant structures of lichens grow there as a layer of permafrost within the soil of the area preventing anything with a larger root system being able to grow.

     

    Coming further toward the equator we enter the more temperate climates and areas of outdoors.  This is the area of the globe where most of the population lives.  Population centres and their growth have led to the great outdoors being threatened.  Green spaces are often at a premium as towns and cities grow taking up more space eating into the outdoor areas.  For this reason a number of countries have set aside areas of national parks and declared areas of outstanding natural beauty preventing development within these areas.  This has created areas that are available for recreational activities such as climbing, walking along with water sports and camping.  Environmentally this is maintaining the lungs of the planet with these green spaces allowing the planet to rid itself of the toxic wastes and gasses that our human activities are producing and killing the planet.

     

    The lungs of the planet are one way of describing the next major area of the outdoors.  The rainforest area of the planet is probably the most important yet most abused area of the planet.  Without this classification of outdoors the planet would die.  The plants and trees in this area clean the planet of the excessive amounts of carbon dioxide and other gases that we put into our planets atmosphere.  Combine this with the belief that there is a natural cure for all illnesses and that they are undiscovered in the rainforest then we must protect this area of the world.  The rainforest is being destroyed at such a rate that if we do not stop it the world will lose its ability to cure itself.  If it loses this ability then global warming will increase at an alarming rate with the world eventually becoming uninhabitable to most species including our own.

     

    In the above paragraphs we have barely touched on the importance of the outdoors to us.  We use it for recreation, for resources and it provides the world with an ability to live and maintain its heat and atmospherically balance. If we continue to destroy this important part of out planet we will suffer extremes of temperature, natural disasters will abound be they floods, droughts or any other global disasters.  It is very simple with the outdoors and it is as follows:

     

    Look after the outdoors and it will look after us.
