Welcome to Environmental-Relations.com! The site dedicated for finding the best available solutions and technology for environmentally friendly living.
Hi! My name Jukka and I run this webiste. I have been interested in the environment ever since I was a child, like most people actually are without even realizing it. Environment is the whole world we live in after all. I guess I had a bit more interest than the average person as I ended up as an environmental engineer.
Growing up I spent a lot of time in the beautiful Finnish nature. In the forests, in the lakes, on the ice. I learned a lot about the environment, biology, ecology, animals etc. from by scientist parents. I also got interested in science from a young age which later on lead me to study engineer as I also have a knack for techonology. I’ve always found it fascinating and easy to find out how things work. Be it machines or natural processes.
I’m also interested in SEO, content creation and the workings of the internet in general, so creating a site that combines my passions was a natural result.
Why and how I want to people?
Here’s the thing. Global warming is a scientific fact. It’s also a fact that we humans are responsible for it. Sure there have been warm and cold periods in our planets but the current warming is undisputedly caused by our over-consumption of resources.
Our population overgrowth and unresponsible consumption of resources have lead to a mass extinction of species comparable to only the ones caused by massive environmental events in history.
I honestly think we humans as a species are too smart for our own good. If we weren’t smart enough to pool resources and form societies we would just be one animal among the others, living in harmony with nature. Of course that would mean a lot smaller population and a rough short life for individuals, but hey, that’s nature for you.
But since we have learned how to bend the rules of nature in a way that we have became the true apex predator we have great responsibility. Unfortunately as a species we do not live up to that responsibility. There are individual and even small groups that do, but every single nation on the planet today aim for growth (both economical and population) which is detrimental to the planet at the current rate.
My aim is to spread the word of how important it is to to take action in your own life to make the world a better place for future generations and other species besides us.
The goal of Environmental-Relations.com
I know this might seem harsh or ideological to anyone reading this but we are at the point that nice talk just won’t cut it. I like a no-bullshit attitude towards everything as that brings faster results.
If you are interested in making the world a better place for every living thing to live in, please join me. I welcome any open minded person to read my ramblings.
Things like recycling, renewable energy, sustainable use of resources, plant-based food sources, smarter city-planning, transportation and digitalization can still save us.
If you ever need a hand or have ay questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
