Green Prophet

The image of this baby chimp haunted him, he said, so when he returned to his rented apartment, he poured his anger into an outline for an NGO called The Last Great Ape Organization Cameroon (LAGA). He confiscated the chimp, named Future, who is expected to be re-introduced to the wild by a professional rehabilitation center, and within seven months, Drori was almost singlehandedly responsible for the first enforcement of a law long designed to protect Cameroon’s wildlife.

Why Are Pangolins Endangered?

Greentumble

Cameroon. Pangolins are small nocturnal creatures. who quietly roam through forests and savannahs eating termites and ants. They are solitary and easily frightened. Naturally shy creatures, they are seldom seen. Yet those dealing in the profitable illegal trade for them have been terribly effective in finding them. Lacking the charisma of the largest or fastest animals of the world, the fact that they are being poached to extinction has gone largely unnoticed by the world.

In 1986, 100,000 tons of CO2 were released naturally from a volcanic lake in Cameroon.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming. In relation to carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, Net Carbon Debt is equal to the Historical Carbon Debt (from fossil fuel burning since the start of the Industrial Revolution in circa 1750) minus the Carbon Credit (the residual carbon pollution from fossil fuel burning permitted between now and zero emissions in 2050).
