To start the day …. “Climate Change: Open Letter to World Leaders”!!


~~December 7, 2015~~ 


2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference

The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21 or CMP 11 is being held in Le Bourget, Paris, from November 30 to December 11.

It is the 21st yearly session of the Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 11th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.

2498 academics from 75 countries signed this Open Letter calling for world leaders meeting in Paris to do what is necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Prominent signatories include Noam Chomsky, Naomi Oreskes, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Michael E. Mann, Ursula Oswald Spring, Bill McKibben, David Suzuki, and Peter Singer.


Open Letter from Academics to World Leaders ahead of the Paris Climate Conference 2015

Some issues are of such ethical magnitude that being on the correct side of history becomes a signifier of moral character for generations to come. Global warming is such an issue.

Indigenous peoples and the developing world are least responsible for climate change, least able to adapt to it, and most vulnerable to its impacts. As the United Nations Climate Conference in Paris approaches, the leaders of the industrialized world shoulder a grave responsibility for the consequences of our current and past carbon emissions.


Yet it looks unlikely that the international community will mandate even the greenhouse gas reductions necessary to give us a two thirds chance of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. At the moment, even if countries meet their current non-binding pledges to reduce carbon emissions, we will still be on course to reach 3 degrees Celsius by the end of this century.

This is profoundly shocking, given that any sacrifice involved in making those reductions is far overshadowed by the catastrophes we are likely to face if we do not: more extinctions of species and loss of ecosystems; increasing vulnerability to storm surges; more heatwaves; more intense precipitation; more climate related deaths and disease; more climate refugees; slower poverty reduction; less food security; and more conflicts worsened by these factors.

Given such high stakes, our leaders ought to be mustering planet-wide mobilization, at all societal levels, to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius.

We undersigned concerned academics, researchers and scientists from around the world recognize the seriousness of our environmental situation and the special responsibility we owe our communities, future generations, and our fellow species.

We will strive to meet that responsibility in our educational and communicative endeavors.

We call upon our leaders to do what is necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change. With just as much urgency, we call upon our fellow citizens to hold their leaders responsible for vigorously addressing global warming.

For the full list of signatories please see below.

~Open Letter to World Leaders~

~Published on Sep 24, 2015~

Around the world, people from all walks of life are standing together to demand a strong climate agreement in Paris and a healthy future for the planet. When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders have to listen.

So we’ve put together this Open Letter with one very clear message: DEAR WORLD LEADERS: TAKE CLIMATE ACTION NOW.

People from around the world are affected by climate change today – right now. And they’re calling out to world leaders to demand real action this year at the UN climate talks in Paris.


We ALL are ONE!! 



At the end of the day …. PETA: In the spirit of ‪the ‎SuperBowl‬!!


~~February 2, 2015~~ 

The long awaited day, February 2, came and went … thank god! I must confess that I’m not a fan .. not even for the ads or the half-time show. Yet, there is one ad that I have seen and wonder if it was actually aired. Somehow I don’t think it was.

I’m including it here because it portrays a topic that is very close to my heart and very important to me.

~The SeaWorld Bowl~

PETA’s 2015 Super Bowl Ad

~Published on Feb 1, 2015~

Not even two electrifying sportscasters can make SeaWorld’s practices look anything but cruel.


In the wild, orcas swim up to 100 miles every day and dive to depths of nearly 1,000 feet. But at SeaWorld, they are confined to an area only half the size of a football field, kept in chemically treated water, and forced to perform dumb tricks for food. Some orcas were torn away from their families in the wild. Others, born in captivity, were taken away from their frantic mothers when they were just babies.

Captivity can cause them to become neurotic, self-destructive, and downright dangerous — painfully injuring or killing themselves, other orcas, and even a human trainer. All animals at SeaWorld are deprived of everything natural and important to them and face a lifetime of barren concrete tanks and enclosures.

Don’t be fooled — don’t go to SeaWorld.


Will you help orcas?

And please urge SeaWorld to release the orcas, dolphins, penguins, and other animals imprisoned in its parks into sanctuaries:….
