TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

~Henry David Thoreau~

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

Thoughts for today, #481 …. “Warning …. #TrumpWatch …. “!!

WARNING!

There’s no way that anyone who is sane and has a functional mind; anyone who hasn’t drank the Kool-Aid; anyone concerned about this country and the world – can’t let their guard down.

This is a historic time for the planet that we live in.

Remember, there’s no Planet B.

We ALL are here together.

Never forget the ripple effect.

This has and will affect all of us.

Be vigilant!

THE FUTURE 

Is there a prosperous future for all of humanity?

Technically there should be.

Progress should continue, bringing opportunities to learn, grow, stay interconnected.

Yet, there have been and are forces trying to prevent the future from being what it should be.

We need to DEMAND the future we DESERVE!

I’ve been working with an amazing company called Neste for the past year as a futurologist on a project called #PreOrderTheFuture.

I teamed up with them because it really aligned with what I’m passionate about; which is helping improve the future through technology, sustainability, and education. This project allowed people to submit their ideas that can help improve the future and NESTE would fund it.

This was an ambitious project but nevertheless, I believe a successful one.

Mother Earth …. “the invasion of plastic …. man-made ‘progress’ …. disposable society …. “!!

MOTHER EARTH OVERWHELMED BY PLASTIC

It’s no surprise – we are using tons of plastic, way more than we need, and the Earth cannot digest it.

Every single piece of plastic that has been created still exists somewhere on the Earth. It is poisoning our oceans, landfills and bodies. The production of plastic goods is polluting our atmosphere, and as a result of the oil extraction process to obtain the petroleum to make the plastic, our forests are being cut down and our rivers, lakes and oceans are being polluted. When will it be enough?

The fact of the matter is, we are using more plastic now than ever before, and because it is so (seemingly) easily disposed of, most of us are completely unaware of the waste we are helping to produce, especially on a mass scale.

CHANGING LANDSCAPE

From outer space, Earth shines like a beacon

Reflecting sunlight off silvery white clouds, opal blue oceans, and forest-tinged continents, it’s hard to imagine from this image that humanity is making any kind of imprint.

But we are making more than an imprint; we are stamping our metal feet into the Earth and spewing carbon by the ton into the atmosphere. In turn, we are leaving the Earth in much worse shape than we found it.

Haze has settled over cities.

Once green, fertile areas have become desert. Metal encroachments creep into the soil. All the while, NASA has photographed the progress from space. Here are seven jarring images of human impacts on Earth, as seen from space.
