Water is one of the most precious things on Earth, and something that all living things need. I feel very strongly about the pollution of our oceans, which happens every day. Not everyone realizes how important it is to make sure our oceans are clean, and I feel as though everyone should be informed. We not only need the ocean, but also; Could you imagine a life where you never saw a dolphin or a penguin ever again? It would be a sad life without the marine life. According to national geographic it quotes, “There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. The mass is, 269,000 tons which float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer litter the deep sea.” That is a ridiculous amount of trash in our ocean.
Obviously, until now, we never realized it was an issue until it…

Anything to please the human race and cater to their whims and pleasures, even if it means destroying the planet, or destroying someone else’s chances for a better life or a better, healthy environment. The fashion of praising everything a human does and pretending it is positive is hubris; the unreality of it is detrimental.
People always say they love nature and believe in environmentalism, but their actions don’t match. They use pollutants daily!

Deforestation, clearance or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use. Examples of deforestation include conversion of forestland to farms, ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. About 30% of Earth’s land surface is covered by forests.
Deforestation occurs for multiple reasons: trees are cut down to be used for building or sold as fuel, (sometimes in the form of charcoal or timber), while cleared land is used as pasture for livestock and plantation.
The most critical of all forest types is primary forest, known as old-growth or virgin forest. Examples include the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia and those of the Amazon and the Congo. With mature canopy trees and complex understories, these forests contain 300 billion tons of carbon and are the greatest repositories of biodiversity on the planet.
In 2015, there were…

Here’s a good thing to do! Check out their blog for continuing good stuff!
I discovered this company by chance while browsing the internet and it seems like a simple way to make the earth a better place and help plant trees. All you have to do is go to their website www.ecosia.org and follow the instructions to make ecosia your default search engine.
The way it works is they make money by companies advertising on the site and use this money to plant trees, pretty simple. They have planted over 17 million trees since the company was founded in 2009. They have a new goal to plant 1 billion tress and are steadily getting closer. It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests, we are clearing forests at the rate of 20 football fields per minute.
With Ecosia search engine it is possible to support a company trying to make the world a better place even if you don’t…

I’ve been reading nature books and I just realized something. The old writers (1800’s, 1900’s, even up to 1960’s) worked in the wilderness, worked for the wilderness, lived in it (really lived in it, all summer long, or all year), walked in the wilderness. The “new” writers of nature don’t even get out in it much, much less live or walk in it! No wonder their writings are shallow and full of platitudes! But, one can’t deny the Muries, John Muir, Edward Abbey, etc. KNEW what they were talking about — they revered nature, did not condone logging or cattle in the forests or on public land, etc. Their environmentalism is based on reality, not gratuitous self- congratulatory arrogance! These new writers are fakes. They are writers not naturalists. And, ironically, they use up a lot of trees to publish their books.
And, lots of these writers, writing about places, just repeat already published stuff that one could (and usually have) read on one’s own. Yet, writers who do something amazing, like sail down the Mississippi under their own power, have to self-publish. A lot of 2nd hand trade book stores won’t carry these kinds of books, so if they go out of print, they are lost forever. Yet “Writers” (published by publishing houses) get carried along forever, even if the books are rehashed crap and the most challenging thing the writer has done has been to go without good coffee for a few days.
