Earth Day 2011

Here are some photos to get you thinking about the meaning of April 22, Earth Day, whose theme this year is "A Billion Acts of Green," a people-powered campaign to generate a billion acts of environmental service and advocacy. Living a green lifestyle helps improve the environment, your health and the well-being of future generations; do you need ideas to do all that? Click here.

I´d love to read your comments about these ads and the cartoon.

    In my opinion, Earth Day must be a day to think about how we are treating our planet. I think we must remember this day all year round. We have to try to reduce the damage we are making to the Earth because it is paramount to our existence.
    The pictures, that you show here, illustrate climate change and in general, the effects we are causing. The photo about polar bear is amazing! I think it illustrates the climate change that humanity are causing with our behaviour. A consequence of it is that the poles are melting and in this way, the habitat of polar bear is disappearing, causing their extincion, as the photo show.
    In conclusion, the 365 days of the year must be the days of the Earth.

  2. I couldn´t agree more with your last statement, Sara.

  3. Humans usually forget, because of the amazing and complex unnatural world that we have created, the fact that planet Earth was here millions and millions of years before we appeared. Even we forget that in spite of our intelligence, we are only another animal, who have appeared in the same way that the others, so we depend on nature and not nature on us.We are only a small part of Earth history.That´s why we have to remember that one day human race will die,as the rest of the species did, and our intelligence and our tecnology won´t save us, because nature is always above us. So we don´t have right to destroy this world preventing new species to live here.
    In my opinion,days like The Earth day shouldn´t exist, because every human should be aware of the important of protecting our home.
