Gold prospecting and mining.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gold can be found in most countries of the world and from time to time a gold rush develops where gold is found in quantity in what was a previously unknown area.

Here are three stamps from 3 different areas of the world.
Canada, South Africa and New Zealand.





Here are the main producers of gold. >

Steel manufacturing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


One of the many major pollutants of the environment in this world is the making of steel by the use of fossil fuels.







This is what Wikipedia has to say on the subject.

The coal industry.
~~~~~~~~~~~~


The use of coal over the years in some countries has greatly diminished in the public sector, due to various clean air acts preventing pollution such as smog, fog and fumes creating a more healthy environment, gone are lots of the Victorian factory chimneys and steam locomotive railway engines that paved the way for the industrial revolution.

However, large amounts of coal are still used in some industries of the world which also includes generating electricity.






Here is a general guide relating to recent production and use of coal throughout the world.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lis...l_production

Don't go down in the mine dad, there's plenty of coal at the top !!!

Agriculture - wheat.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The world relies mostly on 3 basic sources of carbohydrate foods, namely rice, potatoes and wheat, each having their own types and characteristics dependant and where they are grown.

Here are some agricultural stamps that cover the growing and production of wheat. >






Countries that produce the most wheat can be found in this following table as per Wikipedia. >

The industries that are even more of a problem are:

Plastic production to create plastics which replace steel. Uses both fossil fuel for production and content. All fossil fuels are is one hundred percent naturally and organically captured solar radiation energy.

Food production, known as farming, ranching or agriculture as it releases huge quantities of the worst greenhouse gas, water vapor.

Household cooling and landscaping also release huge quantities of green house gas water vapor.

I will stop here as this is a stamp forum, not a forum to debate science nor politics. Since little is discussed about limiting food, cooling water use since it is not politically correct to discuss population control and reduction. But remember, "Water vapor is the most abundant and potent greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. It warms the air by trapping heat emitted from Earth..." Per the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration rocket scientist, not political buffoons and their sheep followers.

So to continue your theme of activities bad for the planet and people here is food production:

Dairy Production:

Essay as the silos were moved back to better emphasis the cows for issued version.







Agricultural Harvesting:





Fruit Growing:






Please notice that I included example where material was transported thousands of miles using polluting powered ships. Outlaw those and a return to sail power would reduce pollution wouldn't it? That would also be a good way to outlaw polluting airplanes, moving folks and goods again by sail.

In order to compliment your fruit growing exhibits PPG, I have decided to expand the theme to read "fruit and veg products" that puts back a little bit of colour into stamp collecting. >

What do you do for a living?

So many topics in one thread and all under the question "What do you do for a living?". Remind me that in the past many countries issued long sets, usually definitive stamps, show local professions. The most beautiful of them, IMO, is the one issued by Italy on October 20, 1950:

From them, I scanned the last two stamps which are engraved. Both designed by Corrado Mezzana and engraved by Vittorio Nicastro (100 Lire) and Trento Cionini (200 Lire):

In year 2020, Italy issued a sheet about "New Professions". the margins show the same designs of the 1950 stamps:

Yes LaoPhil, I remember this 1950 issue involving many different trades and professions.

Many of the used lower values could normally be found in packets for sale intended for school children.

A worthy set to be included in this thread.
