TYPE 03 Earth Day Every Day
Our world needs a helping hand to stay alive for all of us.
Give thought to how you treat this lonely planet we call home throughout the 365 days in 2020. Let this calendar remind you that each of us can make a difference one way or another no matter how big or small. Let’s make every day in 2020 earth day every day !
Earth provides enough for every man’s need, but not every man’s greed. - Gandhi
Did you know that 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) are lost every year to deforestation? That’s the size of Panama. Deforestation affects weather patterns, wildlife and eventually humans. Unfortunately, commercial deforestation is fast, affirmative action is slow. Hence, every voice is important.
The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it. - Robert Swan
Did you know that the last male Sumatran rhino, Tam, died in May 2019? All that remains of this species is one female in Malaysia and less than 80 in the wild on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. Habitat loss and hideous poaching have made this ancient solitary herbivore critically endangered mammal species. Are we too late?
Don’t play with fire!
Wildfires do occur in Nature naturally. However, more often than not, wildfires are of human origins. Irresponsible widespread open burning to clear forest and plantation fields have become an annual ritual of haze and blame across many borders, especially in South East Asia. After the smoke clear and cinders simmer, the voices of action just fade in the clouds.
From Abundance Earth To Abandoned World
Did you know that deserts are growing while the ice poles are melting? This contrasting imbalance in Nature is one of the many effects of global warming. Longer droughts and bigger wildfires across the globe break seasonal barriers and bring havoc to ecosystems, including food security and human abandonment of populated areas. Planet earth is in trouble.
Freeze Climate Change
Unnoticeable to the rest of the world climate change is already happening at the poles of the planet. Icebergs and ice sheets aren’t what we imagine. With warmer undercurrents from the gulf stream melting the ice from underneath, icebergs and ice sheets are becoming an eerie graveyard of fractured ice. Sadly, for a polar bear trying to stay afloat, there’s no turning back.
Be part of the solution, not part of the pollution.
Industrial pollution for the sake of progress has blackened the clear and present dangers of environmental degradation as well as human health throughout the world. The effects are impacted on not one but many, not just humans but all living things, and not just for the present but for generations. Radiation mutation, underground leaching and toxic food chain contamination will still be present even when the industries closes down.
Deep Threats Beneath
Did you know that corals are living organisms? These ancient marine lifeform serves as a natural barrier between the sea and land as well as a food bank for aquatic life around it. Unfortunately, coral reefs are dying worldwide. In South East-Asian waters, 80% of coral reefs are endangered. Warming temperatures causes coral bleaching and kills the corals while human disturbances bring about immediate damage.
Nature Can Destroy Nature Too
How ironic to know that natural oil drilled from the ocean beds can be a weapon that destroys the natural environment. Oil spills in the oceans occur every day. Because oil cannot dissolve in water the thick sludge formed causes catastrophic damage to marine life and birds, aquatic flora and lands up at the coasts. Human energy dependence fuels this destruction.
By 2050, there will be more plastic by weight than fish in the ocean.
Did you realised that what is dumped into the oceans will somehow land up as beach litter? Take a walk along the shores of any country and you will discover bits and pieces of debris of far origins. So don’t be surprised that the piece of plastic or garbage you dumped on the beach yesterday may find its way back to you tomorrow.
Hanging On To Life
It has been reported that every species of the intriguing seahorse is facing extinction due to massive challenges in survival. Seabed
pollution have destroyed their natural habitats in seagrass beds, mangroves and coral reefs in shallow waters. Seahorses are sensitive marine wonders. Imagine what a bunch of plastic straws can do to their habitat.
Bagging For A Single Concern
We all now know that plastic consumption leads to plastic pollution and that does not always end up in landfills and the ocean floor. Indeed, plastic pollution does end up in our tap water too. Come to think of it, it’s not just the sea turtles and the sea birds that get entangled with plastic waste but we and our next generations. If you won’t beg to defer, bring your own bags. Non-plastic of course.
The earth has music for those who listen. - Shakespeare
The earth does not speak our language but it has a natural way to tell us that there are better alternatives to satisfy our needs for energy. We need to listen more and who knows in the near future we may discover even better alternative energy sources that have been all here on earth all this while. Let’s listen to the earth’s musical harmony.
