Our Remarkable Earth Needs Your Help

Stop the abuse our beautiful planet is suffering - become a Planet Buddy!

Stop the abuse our beautiful planet is suffering – become a Planet Buddy!

According to the very learned amongst us, people who have dedicated their lives to the study of our earth, the solar system and beyond, our earth has many hundreds of millions of years of life left in her.

This is a very gratifying little nugget of information for sure but it does not address the state of play as far as us humans go. You see the trouble is that our earth and indeed our solar system really doesn’t care too much about our delicate little human lives any more than we care to have a pesky fly landing on our food. Just as we would think nothing of swatting that fly, so the earth has no problem with some of us meeting with a rather sticky end. This is a sobering thought isn’t it? Our earth will quite cheerfully watch us all fight our wars, run our gas guzzling vehicles, destroy forests and pollute waterways.

We cant sit back and consider everything as being someone else’s problem or that someone else will fix everything… We all have a part to play right now.

Tel us about your Planet friendly project or plans, - be a Planet Buddy!

We all have a part to play right now – be a Planet Buddy!

It is becoming very clear to all of us that the best indicator of ‘trouble brewing’ is our changing weather patterns. The evidence is clear for all of us to see and experience, very clear – just about every weird weather event imaginable is or has been occurring in recent times. Okay, so we are all aware but what can we really do? Planet Earth has no conscience when our loved ones are swept away by flood, burned by raging fire, frozen or drowned by freak weather. It fears not if our crops fail or our power supplies cease to function. The message is we should be very grateful for our time here and try to work and live as harmoniously as possible with our beautiful earth. The aim of this blog is to motivate and spead the word as far as what ‘regular folk’ can do. We welcome comments from anyone who believes they are becoming part of the solution and opting out of being part of the problem. Let us know if you have tips or maybe a story of how you changed your life by becoming more ‘green’ in the way you live. Tell us about your energy saving projects, maybe tell us about your organic vegetable plot or water saving strategies.
