Umhlaba wonke usenkingeni yokuncipha kwesidoda namaqanda abesifazane

Ngemuva kwe-Covid ne-global warming, sinenye inkinga ezayo – futhi lena sizoyizwa phakathi kwemilenze yethu.

I-New York Times ibika ukuthi ososayensi bakhathazekile ngokwehla kwesibalo sesidoda kanye nokwehla kwekhwalithi yamaqanda abesifazane. Basola ukuthi inkinga idalwa amakhemikhali.

Akulona ihlaya. Izingane zabafana zikhula ngokungafani ngokobulili; amantombazane abhekana nokuthomba beseminyakeni okungamele ngabe bathomba ngayo; futhi abesifazane babhekane nenkinga yokuncipha kwekhwalithi yeqanda labo kanye nokuphuphunyelwa izisu okuningi.

Akubona abantu kuphela futhi. Izilwane ezinjengoxamu nama-otter zizalwa zinezitho zangasese ezincane, kanti amaxoxo nemafudu azalwa enazo zombili izitho zangasese ezabesilisa nezabesifazane.

Eminyakeni eyishumi eyedlule, isazi esiphambili uShanna Swan sabika ukuthi isilinganiso sesidoda emazweni aseNtshonalanga sehle ngo-59% phakathi kowezi-1973 nowezi-2011.

Isikhathikwaba eside kwabanesixwayiso futhi iphephandaba laseBrithani laveza umbiko obesihloko esithi: “SPERMAGEDDON”.

Kepha-ke wonke umuntu waqhubekela phambili wakhohlwa yikho.

Manje uSwan ubhale incwadi entsha esihloko sithi-“Count Down”, ekhishwe ngoLwesibili futhi uxwayisa ukuthi umhlaba wanamuhla usongela ukubalwa kwesidoda futhi ufaka engcupheni ikusasa lohlanga lwesintu.

Kubekwa icala emnyango wamakhemikhali akumapulasitiki, ama-shampoo, ukudla okusemathinini namarisidi e-ATM.

Izibalo eziningi zesayensi nezikahulumeni seziqalile ukuxwayisa ngala makhemikhali – aziwa ngokuthi yi-endocrine distruptors – kanti olunye ucwaningo luyenziwa. Kepha imboni yamakhemikhali ayifuni ukuthi ukwazi lokhu.

Umlobi wephephandaba i-New York Times uNicholas Kristoff uchaza okwenzekayo njengokushaya kancane noma “ukukhahlela endodeni.”

Futhi kulabo ababengenandaba nokuthi senzani kwizwekazi lapho ama-polar bears eyanyamalala futhi ama-ice floes encipha – mhlawumbe bazozizwa ngokuhlukile lapho kwenzeka okufanayo esidodeni sabo.
