A strong earthquake struck a mountainous stretch of central Italy early Wednesday, August 24, killing at least 241 people, trapping scores under debris and setting off tremors that awakened residents in Rome, nearly 100 miles to the southwest.

The earthquake, which had a preliminary magnitude of 6.2, struck at 3:36 a.m., about 6.5 miles southeast of the town of Norcia in the Umbria region, followed by about 200 aftershocks over the next several hours, including a5.5-magnitude tremor at 4:33 a.m.

The authorities said the quake was comparable in intensity to one in 2009 in the Abruzzo region of central Italy that killed more than 300 people.

NEED TO WORK TOGETHER

There is new life in the soil for every man.

There is healing in the trees for tired minds and for our overburdened spirits, there is strength in the hills, if only we will lift up our eyes.

Remember that nature is your great restorer.

Joan Chen gives the “Sky” a voice in Conservation International’s newest “Nature Is Speaking” film

In the lead up to Earth Day, Conservation International (CI) debuts a new short film “Sky,” voiced by Joan Chen, the newest addition to its award-winning short film series “Nature Is Speaking.”

Sky” debuted as country leaders from around the world come together to sign the Paris climate agreement negotiated this past December.

“We are pushing the Earth’s climate to its limits,” Chen said. “Climate change is drastically altering our planet, threatening not only the nature people rely on, but also people themselves.”

Climate projections predict an increase in extreme events, changes in precipitation and seasons, more frequent and intense heat waves and droughts, melting glaciers, sea-level rise and ocean acidification.

These changes threaten economies, global security, livelihoods and lives.

Sky” expresses the sentiments of our atmosphere as it takes in more and more carbon emissions. Pulling this planet-warming carbon out of the atmosphere and reducing emissions can help mitigate climate change. Recent data indicate that protecting forests can provide up to 30% of the carbon emissions reductions and storage to avert the worst effects of climate change.

Furthermore, the largely unheralded potential of “blue carbon” — the carbon that is sequestered in coastal ecosystems such as mangroves — could provide even more. These solutions also provide many benefits to communities including protecting coastlines as well as food and freshwater supplies.

EARTH … WHO NEEDS IT?

Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.

That’s the message of the provocative, celebrity-studded campaign Conservation International (CI) has launched. Nature Is Speaking aims to raise awareness that people need nature in order to survive.

“I have fed species greater than you, and I have starved species greater than you … I am prepared to evolve.

Are you?” asks “Mother Nature,” voiced by Julia Roberts in the first film of the series.

~OUR MANIFESTO~

Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.

Human beings are part of nature.
Nature is not dependent on human beings to exist.

Human beings, on the other hand, are totally
dependent on nature to exist.

The growing number of people on the planet
and how we live here is going to determine the future of nature.
And the future of us.

Nature will go on, no matter what.
It will evolve.

The question is, will it be with us or without us?

If nature could talk, it would probably say it doesn’t much matter either way.

We must understand there are aspects of how our planet evolves
that are totally out of our control.

But there are things that we can manage,
control and do responsibly that will allow us
and the planet to evolve together.

We are Conservation International and we need
your help. Our movement is dedicated to managing
those things we can control. Better.

Country by country.

Business by business.

Human by human.

We are not about us vs. them.

It doesn’t matter if you’re an American,
a Canadian
or a Papua New Guinean.
You don’t even have to be particularly fond of the ocean
or have a soft spot for elephants.

This is simply about all of us coming together
to do what needs to be done.

Because if we don’t, nature will continue to evolve. Without us.

Here’s to the future. With humans.

The Soil Tells People They Treat It Like Dirt In Film Series from Conservation International

​Academy Award Nominee Edward Norton Lends Voice to Nature Is Speaking

“You have withered me away to less than half of what I used to be just over 100 years ago. Are you paying attention, I am turning to dust,” states The Soil.

Healthy and productive soil has always been necessary to humanity’s survival. Soil is the foundation of our agriculture and economy. With a global population more than 7 billion people, we are putting more stress on the soil than ever before to feed the growing population. More than 75 billion tons of soil disappears each year and it can take over 500 years for nature to replace one inch of eroded soil.

Edward Norton on voicing “The Soil“: “I come from a family of conservation activists, and so I’ve had a strong connection to nature all my life. My father has been a leader within the movement for over 30 years and has taught most of what I know about environmental conservation. While he would always take me hiking, camping and rafting, he also taught me that the spiritual value of the outdoors alone, is not enough to save nature against economic interests. We must realize that nature is absolutely essential for our survival, and we must act on that premise now. That’s why I serve on the board of Conservation International and am also the United Nations Ambassador for Biodiversity.”

Ian Somerhalder Voices New Film for Conservation International’s Nature Is Speaking Campaign

​“Coral Reef” joins stable of short films giving nature a voice, narrated by some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Voiced by Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, “Coral Reef” comes to life, reminding humans that coral reefs are the most diverse of all marine ecosystems, the nurseries of the sea, and the critical first line of defense against approaching storms. Somerhalder is also a United Nations Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador.

“When big storms and tsunamis come through, I’m your fortress, yet you tear me apart with dynamite and poison me with cyanide,” states Coral Reef.

Roughly one-fifth of coral reefs worldwide are already damaged beyond repair. Destructive fishing practices, ocean acidification, and insensitive tourism practices such as snorkelers touching reefs, threaten the long-term conservation of coral ecosystems every day.
