Eco awareness for taking green action

Eco awareness!

Take green action!

The world has waked up one day and realized that he must be greener. This is the time and this is the place to take the green action. More than others, the Western world is leading this revolution for the best of all.

The recent years dedicated for the green actions around the world. I remember seeing in the new the Greenpeace guys for the first time, they looked ridiculous and stupid. I remember laughing when Bruce Willis shot golf balls toward them on the Armageddon movie. Its not funny anymore and we all part of it.

Take the front pages of the newspapers in the last 5 years, search for any ecological article and notice the green actions that are mentioned. You will see clearly that the number of issues has risen like hell. I can tell that from my small research, the number of green articles at the today’s papers is more than 800% than 3 years ago.

Celebrities are making movies, NGO’s are taking green actions, school children are teaching theirs parents, recycling and reusing are common words, being green is cool and so and so.

This is the time to be green this is the time to take the green action. Make sure to be part of the revolution, we need you in.

Dry Future

“The Future to come is dry”.
“Most of the world population will suffer from bad water diseases”.
“Lack of water will cause global wars and genocides”.

Does any of the above have something to do with you? You bet it have!

As part of the world population you must understand and realize that the planet is going dry. Its true, more than 70% of this planet is water, but we are talking about accessible drinking water. In Africa, Middle East and Far East, we see it happening at the moment, when people are fighting over water sources, great populations migrant toward water supplies and wars are taking place when the main reason is water.

In 2030, according to the UN, half of the world population will not have fresh drinking water. Its only 20 years from now! Your kids and the neighbor’s kids will ask you then- what have you done in order to prevent this situation? What have you done 20 years ago? (Today)?

The growing population is the main cause for the water lack and there is nothing to be done with it. But there is a lot to be done in the daily behavior and daily water use, in order to use less water, to save water and to recycle used water. More people need more water to drink, more food that grow with water, more meat, fuel and such. The demand is growing and the planet is collapsing.

The time to save water is now, the time to use less water is now, the time to educate, to take care, to pay attention and to do something in order to join the global effort- is now!

Shut down your engine

Shut down your engine!

Transportation is one of the main causes for the global warming. This is why more and more efforts, resources and education put into this issue. The amount of CO2 we can save from the planet is huge, if we will pay more attention to the need of reducing the transportation harms.

Driving the private car is maybe the worst thing to do, because we are transporting one, two, maximum five people at a time. Using buses and trains are also causing the pollution, but in a smaller amount per person. While 50 people can drive one city bus, it’s the best solution comparing to 30 cars. Of course, the best solution is the bicycles and other no fuel ways to transport, but this is another issue.

There is a disturbing phenomenon, in the big cities, where people are parking for few minutes and remaining the engine to work. Is there an idea behind it? I’m not sure. More than 130,000 tons of CO2 are polluting the air for every car that stands with the engine on, in neutral drive. That’s too much and that unnecessary.

In NYC, there is a new law against this phenomenon, and people will pay up to $250 fine against leaving the car, parking with engine on, for more than a minute. It will be hard to find and fine these people, but it’s a good start.

The better way to fight this phenomenon is education, real ecological education, which will explain and teach about the CO2 dangerous and deadly causes.

We are green, are you?

The people which taking part at the Yes We Green project are ecological people. If you are ecological, you like to learn how to be more ecological or like to share your knowledge, welcome.
