Save the world! We can do it. YOU can do it!

This is important, please listen.
We live our lives every day as if nothing bad will ever happen to us. We go to school, we go to work, we read our books, we tweet our thoughts, we eat our cake.
The world is going to end, guys.
It might not look so bad right now, but things are going seriously downhill in terms of the health of our environment. I know you already know this, but the truth is, it seems secondary to all of us at some point. But it shouldn't be. It's DEFINITELY our business. To each and every one of us.

What I am talking about here today is the Arctic disappearing. It's disappearing because oil exploiters want to access the oil waaay beneath the Arctic waters, the oils which will make the ice melt. It's disappearing because giant fishing companies are starting (and have started) exploiting the Arctic Ocean, which is destroying the icebergs. And it's disappearing because countries are fighting over the Arctic. Yes, that's right: the five neighboring countries are advancing their pawns to try to extend their territory. I quote Greenpeace:
"Countries are spending billions on Arctic weaponry, threatening the long-term peace of the region. Nuclear-powered ice-breakers, submarines and fighter jets are being purchased by Arctic states with overlapping claims on the area around the North Pole."

And why should we care about this? Because the health of the ice determines OUR health. No ice, no life.

"The ice at the top of the world reflects much of the sun’s heat back into space and keeps our whole planet cool, stabilising the weather systems that we depend on to grow our food. Protecting the ice means protecting us all."

This video also explains it.

  1. A pile of places and all are disappearing. Alot of animals are becoming extincted (sp?) and its sad. So sad that people treat the earth like it's nothing to them.

  2. I signed it! I feel like society is just doing somuch to destroy the earth and while I'm guilty of it too (exspecially with how much PLASTIC I use because literally it comes on everything now and it breaks my heart when I have to get rid of a lot of plastic at once because it's just so much), I feel like we need more support for this kind of stuff.

    1. Same here! It's amazing how much plastic we used! The paper bin gets filled up SO FAST!

  3. I signed it!! I totally agree with everything that is said here.. I feel like we are hurting the earth so much and it just hurts it too so much trash everywhere! I really hope there will be more support for this!

  4. Signed! People don't care about the environment at all. The entire world is going to collapse and all they can think of is making bucks.
    Thanks for sharing!

    this is so true - i don't think people are taking into consideration how much they're damaging the environment and it really annoys me.

    great post!
