Saving Earth

earth

Would you go to the depths of the earth for your planet? Climate change, global warming, mother nature taking its toll. Is our environment coming to a sticky end or is it undergoing a new transformation?

Films such as ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ and ‘2012′, even though fictional, speak of the greatness of mother nature. Of how mother nature can use the beauty she was blessed with to create weapons of mass destruction upon mankind. The Tsunami on tidal wave on Thailand from the Indian Ocean earthquake on December 26 2004 and the current earthquake disaster that hit Haiti reaching 7.3 Richter scale on January 12. These have just been some of the disasters that have struck earth. But can we SAVE our environment?

Can mankind rebuild its once common ground and its mutual relationship with the environment? The bigger picture is that if we do not, the environment we once knew will crumble right before our eyes and we will feel its consequences.

Environmental charities and groups of all ages, globally, have dedicated all they do to saving the environment. Whether it be recycling or battling issues involving global warming, people are genuinely committed to helping the environment around them.

Neal Pargman, 65, Founder of ‘Save the Earth’ was asked his thoughts on saving the environment and earth around us.

“I started the Save The Earth Movement in 1972, but didn’t get the Save The Earth Foundation established until 1989.”

“We try to get the message “Save The Earth” into the consciousness of all people while licensing the STE trademark. Licensing fees support environmental research at colleges and also with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)”.

“I think it will take a miracle to Save The Earth, but I do believe in miracles.”

“I think the state of the environment is worse than ever. NOAA tells us that the next big environmental crisis will be ocean acidification. We are concentrating on this now.”

“It made me feel great at the beginning. Now after 38 years at it, I feel I have failed to get the message out in time.”

The bigger question now becomes “Will mankind save the environment?” If so, what can we do to help.

Neal stated: “Use less resources. CO2 is the main cause of ocean acidification. Driving less will put less CO2 in the oceans. CO2 in the ocean turns into carbonic acid which dissolves plankton, coral, and shellfish.”

The fight to save out planet is on. Now is the time where we need to ask ourselves “Are we ready to do what we can to save earth?” The power is in our hands.

  1. We better do something about all this. This climate change is very obvious and I don’t understand why some people don’t believe that we are poluting the earth.these organizations are the only establishments we can hope will bring a sence to the world as a whole, so we can join forces and make a cleaner enviorment for us and our kids

  2. Thank you for your blog comment on this article.

    I agree that this is a sensitive issue that needs to be addressed. We, as a coporate nation, should all be battling to help save our world and its environment.

    Such organisations (of which I myself need to look upon more) are bringing a chamge, and will continue to. Whether this being in big steps or small steps. Something is better than nothing. It’s great that there are organisations that are doing this, making a change for future generations.

  3. “An inconvenient truth” by Al Gore was eye opening for me.

  4. Thanks for the comment Shane Green.

    I am not familiar with ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Al Gore. But I will look it up.
