We also have a dream... a dream that would give people a better life:
People would like to extend their knowledge, would like to explore, would like to ask questions and to open their minds...
"The question of ethics is what the highest good is for mankind.."
With an updated conservation education it is easy to endorse this statement:
"So act as if your maxims should serve at the same time as the universal law (of all rational beings)"
In our dream people would like to re-connect to Nature, would keep Nature beautiful!
People would love to care for their neighbor + for the next generation!
We have a dream... are you willing to help us that this dream comes true? Sign IN

Warmer ocean water also can store less CO2 carbon dioxide
12/27/2014 - Paying too much for electricity is still a common problem worldwide. People waste electricity with security lights, that provide no security at all, and they still use the heat producing, electricity wasting old light bulbs, instead of saving money on energy with efficient LED lightbulbs

This is how a once beautiful forest looks like, after energy resources are ripped out of the Earth! Profit and greed = destruction + insecurity
High erosion rates, air contamination + unhealthy drinking water. Destroyed forests equal our destroyed future!
Less oxygen production, less carbon dioxide CO2 storage, Less chances for a healthy life!

A few days ago the Etna in Sicily spew hot ashes lighting up the sky, on Iceland a volcano threatens to melt a big glacier, in Asia many people had to flee from a volcano outbreak, a strong earthquake happened in Northern California. Changing pressure on Earth's tectonic plates is one of the reasons. - Geology explains whats happening and why. Burning huge amounts of fossil fuels raises the concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere causing warmer temperatures on Earth, changing earthquake patterns.
In the last decades
new records were broken all the time.|
Did you hear about the snow record? Did you hear about record fires?
Did you hear about record flooding? Did you hear about record earthquakes?
