Become a Face of Climate Change

Screen shot 2013-04-22 at 11.41.46 AMIt is April 22nd again, which means that it is Earth Day!  This year, earthday.org has created an impressive collage on their website, and are inviting everyone to get involved.  The meaning of the collage is to put as many faces with the impacts of climate change.  This doesn't just include humans, it is encouraged to also post pictures of animals and areas being effected by climate change.

The major focus for earthday.org is to target the major businesses and governments that lead in producing the most carbon polution.  They will target these businesses and governments by displaying the digital collages on bigscreens outside of their offices and headquarters.  However, their major focus isn't to just try and bring down these businesses.  The real goal is to encourage entrepeneurs to create campaigns and facilities to use clean technology.

 Do your part today, make sure that you toss away all of your trash, and don't be afraid to be the better person.  If you see someone else's trask on the ground, please pick it up.  Climate Change is one of the many issues that should be addressed not only on Earth Day, but every day.  Us, as humans are responsible for much of the pollution on this planet, and should take responsibility by changing our habbits for the better.

 

To learn more about climate change, please visit understandingclimatechange.org, a website offering an abundance of information on climate change, what is causing it, and what we as humans can do to prevent negative climate change.

On a positive note, we are setting record levels on wind power each year.  Although we are making progress, we can't stop, and should never be satisfied.  We need to harness our knowledge and use it towards green technology.
