is a fundamental behavioural pattern implying one in principle doesn’t
go or continue to live in a place situated in another climate zone than
the one in which one naturally (predominantly) belongs,
doesn’t travel to such a place, and
doesn’t use food or other products that have to be got
from another than one’s (predominantly) own climate zone.
There are four different kinds of climate zones on both the Northern and the Southern hemisphere:
1) The polar one; from the pole (on the 100th degree of latitude), up/down to the 75th degree.
2) The temperate one; between the 75th and the 50th degree.
3) The sub-tropical one; from the 50th, up/down to about the 25th.
4) The tropical one; from the 25th degree, up/down to Equator (on degree zero).
Officially the frontier between the tropical zone and the sub-tropical one is on the 23d degree, whereas officially (in fact scientifically) strange enough no degree is mentioned to form the frontier between the subtropical and the temperate zone.
To the NPF it’s more systhematically and easier to handle when each zone simply comprises 25 degrees, as in reality zone frontiers are very winding anyway.
The possibility that persons belong not quite, but “predomintly” in a certain climate-zone is a consequence of the fact that human behaviour in the past was not (yet) very much according to the Climativistic principle, as a result of which many persons are descending from parents that belong to different races and so naturally in different climate zones.
As however those persons as good as always have more characteristics from one of both (or more) parental races than of the other one(s), they predominantly belong in the climate zone with which those predominant characteristics naturally correspond.
Arguments for Climativism
1a) People that racially belong in a more sunny zone, when staying or living in a less sunny one, mostly spent especcially autumn and winter indoor, where they mostly need a lot of energy for purposes such as heating and elctrical lighting. Moreover for their transportation as well they strongly prefer means, that confront them as little as possible with the climatological facts of their living area. No need to say, that this is stimulating global heating essentially.
People that naturally belong in a less sunny zone when staying or living in a more sunny one, mostly need to use a lot of energy for cooling purposes.
1b) Transportation to and from places in another climatezone is mostly long-distance, which means that it takes much fuel and as a consequence leads to much pollution of air, water and soil; the more miles, the more pollution !
2a) Related to the last mentioned item is the one of oil reserves.
Even if it’s true that there’s still enough (somewhat acceptable responsably exploitable = conventional) crude oil for the next 40 years, the fact that the end of availability will particularily be accompanied by a harrowing global food shortage (no more production of pesticides and fertilizer), but by other disastrous consequences as well, undoubtedly can be considered reason enough to start slowing the approach of said moment of unavailability as soon as possible in all possible ways. One (main) of these ways is a change from the current globalization in the direction of regionalization; Climativism can be regarded as an essential first step in this respect.
2b) In nature as good as all creatures have there own territorium; all different human races naturally belong in a certain climate zone; it’s very important for among other things well-being of autochtones in each zone that at least the zonal frontiers are respected as limits, notwithstanding the fact that nowadays it’s very easy to deny them by use of technical means of transportation.`
2c) Because man’s physical structure is created in harmony with specific climatological circumstances (and other biotope-elements), in principle it is bad for health to stay in another than one’s naturally own climate zone.
An important reason for this is in the fact that a person’s skin, hair and eyes are provided with a fitting quantity of pigment, of which the main function is protection against certain elements in sunbeams. The more sunny a climate zone is, the more protection is needed and that’s why persons who naturally belong in more sunny zones are provided with more pigment which shows in the darkness of their skin, hair and eyes.
Now when persons with much pigment stay in a less sunny zone, where sunbeams are less intens than in their own one, the consequence is that the relatively faint sunbeams there simply don’t ‘get through’ the pigment-rich skin to do their natural healthy function, as a result of which the relevant person more and more will suffer from shortages in that respect. A shortage of ‘sun-vitamins’ is known to lead to a reduced functioning of’the organs.
Reversely a person who stays in a more sunny that his natural climate zone will suffer from to little protection against the intensity of sunbeams, which among other often leads to illnesses like skin cancer.
2d) Because human beings naturally can only move walking and swimming it’s against the system of their own constellation and of nature in general to traverse the long distances that mostly separate places located in different climate zones. Use of planes, ships, cars, animals, or whatever other means for this purpose, it always enables to move (much) further than one naturally can and is supposed to, and as a result usually leads to a dramatic disruption of one’s personal and social condition.
3) Other life-friendlyness
3a) Long distance transportation often takes place by use of airplanes. Transportation by airplanes is known to cause the death of relatively many birds. Not only while they are crushed by planes in the air, but also because their presence in the neighbourhood of airports is fought for safety reasons, among others by preventively killing them massively.
3b) More miles not only means more pollution, it also means more microbes being killed. Mirobes naturally find thenselves inside the crude oil of which kerosine and gasoline are made. Most if not all microbes inside the crude oil are killed in the refining process. As far as they’re not yet the are burned alive when the motorfuel is used.
3c) More miles by truck or other car means more insects being crushed against the car front. —
3d) More miles by ship means more fishes being mutilated or killed by the propeller.
Climativism in practise
Food produts that have to be got from another climate-zone in principle are rejected. So a sub-tropical climativist in principal doesn’t eat and drink products, that have to be got from the tropical zone; (e.g. cocoa and vanilla).
A climativist in the temperate zone in principle doesn’t (buy and) use sub-tropical food eather; (such as banana’s, pine-apples, mango’s, papaya’s, rice, coffee, tea, cashew-nuts, (all originally tropical, but by now also grown in many subtropical countries), as well as oranges, lemons, melons, grapefruits, figs, olives, peanuts, etc.)
Non-food products, that only grow in another climate in prtinciple are rejected as well. For instance materials like tropical (hard-)wood, bamboo, seal of polar animals, rubber, etcetera.
In the field of tourism including holidays, destinations situated in another than the own climate zone are waived.
Also in the field of migration (including refugee status) essential values like environmental conservation, own health and well-being of autochtones are the deciding factors that supersede economic considerations, comfortability and possible racial-imperialistic propensities.
Finally one can ask him/herself, whether and in how far it’s better, because more natural, to avoid personal contacts with persons, that, from the etnological point of view, belong in another climate zone.
Exceptions to the rule
In nowadays practice there (still) use to be several situations
in which the climativistic rules have to be passed to a certain extent:
In case somebody’s roots are in more than one climate-zone, he or she may need (additive) fruits and climatological conditions from resp. in more than one zone.
In case one is living near to a zone-frontier, one of course often has to pass that frontier up to a certain distance.
It can arrive that the quality of the own kind of fruits and other food in a certain zone is that terribly bad, (wheter or not due to a purely gains-obsessed mentality of growers, of which certain may naturally belong in another zone), that in order to get adequate nutritive foodstuff at one’s disposal available, one has to add products from other zones.
