(315530) 2008 AP129, conservation through dynamical equilibrium of nature

(315530) 2008 AP129 is a Kuiper belt object discovered in January of 2008. It has a perihelion of 35.9 AU and an aphelion of 47.5 AU. There are prediscovery images back to December of 1993, November of 1992 and October of 1989.

The collective efforts to reestablish the dynamical equilibrium of the ozone Layer began around the prediscovery of the asteroid (5869) Tanith in the year 1977 and reached a culmination point during the prediscoveries of (315530) 2008 AP129 in the year 1992:

"After a 1976 report by the United States National Academy of Sciences concluded that credible scientific evidence supported the ozone depletion hypothesis a few countries, including the United States, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, moved to eliminate the use of CFCs in aerosol spray cans. [...] In 1985, 20 nations, including most of the major CFC producers, signed the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer which established a framework for negotiating international regulations on ozone-depleting substances. That same year, the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole was announced, causing a revival in public attention to the issue. [...] In 1987, representatives from 43 nations signed the Montreal Protocol. The participants agreed to freeze production of CFCs at 1986 levels and to reduce production by 50% by 1999. After a series of scientific expeditions to the Antarctic produced convincing evidence that the ozone hole was indeed caused by chlorine and bromine from manmade organohalogens, the Montreal Protocol was strengthened at a 1990 meeting in London. The participants agreed to phase out CFCs and halons entirely by 2000. At a 1992 meeting in Copenhagen, the phase out date was moved up to 1996." (Wikipedia: Ozone depletion)

Omaticaya culture

During the presdicovery of (315530) 2008 AP129,
Melanie Reinhart published her book "Chiron and the Healing Journey" (1989), were she describes the shamanic culture as harmonic with the natural environment. She also describes the ecologic movement of (5869) Tanith that overstriked the discovery of Chiron.

In the movie "Avatar" (2009), the omaticaya culture of the indigenous tribe in Pandora (the moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Century star system), based in a symbiosis with the natural environment and the right conservation of the natural resources, is reinforced by the contrast of the human culture that tries to colonize the planet to obtain unobtanium (a precious mineral with superconducting properties) and comes to destroy the Tree of Souls (where the mineral is concentrated underneath) and damage the biological neural network native to Pandora.

Other related movies with (315530) 2008 AP129 are
