We are traveling from Nissastrand toGotenburg to Gran Canaria airport then to the hotel. The airplane is traveling 3927km and releases 1,907t carbon dioxide to the air. From Nissastrand to Landvetter we are releasing about 16kg co2. I calculated this by taking the km (from Nissastrand to Landvetter) multiplied by the amount of co2 releasedfrom my beautiful VolvoV70/ 1km. We are traveling with Ving and Ving are marked by a label called "EU ecolabel" that is like Sweden's "svanenmärkt" which means that they have "environmental rules" to follow.
Lots of hotels in Gran Canaria have started to use disposal systems. The island is working on to be a "environmentally friendly vacation destination". Gran Canaria is an island with lots of volcanos which means that it's difficult to grow food. If you can't grow food you have to import food, which will increase the amount of co2 in the atmosphere.
We are planning to go on a ride on a banana boat. Abananaboatiswhenyousitonarafthats formed like a banana. The banana is tied to a speedboat. The speedboat runs on petrol. Petrolsupports the greenhouse effect by releasing co2 into the atmosphere. It's decreasing the ph level in the sea more than a car because the boat is a lot closer to the ocean then the car. Carbon dioxide is a heavy gas which means that it sinks to the sea. When the ph level decreases in the ocean the coral reef destroys and the ecosystemcollapses. Theorganismsthat has a calcium shell corrodes. If animals in the ecosystem dies, the animals that eats them also dies and so on.
We are staying at a hotel with all-inclusive. 10% of the food that we are eating in the world gets thrown away. But when tourists are able to pick how much they want for "free" the amount increases. Most of the food is imported to Gran Canaria because it's a volcanic island therefore you can't grow food there. The food is imported from nearby countries by cargo ships. The cargo ships are releasing co2 in the atmosphere and contributes to the greenhouseeffects. They are also disturbing the species by the waves from the ship. On the trip we are planning to not throw away food, it's important that me, Alvin and Stina doesn't take food from the buffet that we won't eat.
The hotel is built close the beach and to the hotel lots of people, and some people doesn't think about the consequences of littering. If you leave trash on the beach the trash may be touched by the waves and dragged to the ocean. If nonorganic materials get in the water the fishes might eat the trash and that might affect the ecosystem. If the humans eat "poisoned fish" the human's health will be affected. When you take down the forest/ trees the ecosystem might be affected.
Grancanaria has a very right based opinions. That’s because gran canaria is a part of spain and the spanish government has had a right winged party now for almost 24 years. In gran canaria there’s over 838 397 citizens.
The staff on the hotels are often summer workers from other countries which are treated really well and paid a respectable amount. I do believe that the natives that work there are probably treated to the same luxuries, but the payment might vary a bit. Since the currency becomes less worthy in other countries those who come from those countries may get “more” to compromise the different values of the currency.
Spain is considered to one of the most equal countries when it comes to gender equality. But there are some feminist parties in spain who claim it’s just a cover and the gender equality is still a huge problem. This is totally based on who you ask. But if you look at the policies that's spain has it look like they have eliminated the gender in-equality. Some would argue differently but from the sources i have it dosen't seem like an issues anymore. So you won’t see discrimination of either of the genders in gran canaria.
I looked up the prices for the train to Gothenburg and it was a lot cheaper than driving a car with a parking lots. When I looked at the prices I saw that SJ train are working with renewable energy, for example the trains run on hydroelectric power and wind power. In that way we save 3025kr!!!(the trip costs 975kr return ticket)
