Who Speaks for the Climate?


Last week I had the opportunity to attend to a Max Boykoff’s conference from his book Who Speaks for the Climate.Max Boykoff is the leading researcher and critical voice on the media and climate change.

Even though I am not an expert at all about climate change I can tell you that it is a fact that media is talking about it, and sometimes not telling the whole truth about it, also the experts are making a big effort to open our eyes in order to wake up our awareness about it.

It doesn’t matter where you live, we all live in the same planet, and this planet we call earth is alive, and we can see that everywhere. Lots of people are telling us nowadays that earth is our house and we must take care of it, I would go farther and say we are one with earth, we can’t separate our lives from earth, we eat, breath and drink from earth, actually we are physically connected to earth all the time.

When we think about earth we think about the whole planet and sometimes it could be overwhelming, because we think that saving the whole planet is a huge task, and it is, but we can start with being aware of it and do the things we can do to help in our everyday life, the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY(EPA) has 9 you can do at home:

1-Change the lights to Energy Star bulbs
2- Look for Energy Star products
3- Heat and Coll smart
4- Seal and insulate you house
5- Use green Power
6- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
7- Be green in you yard
8- Use water efficiently
9- Spread the word

For further information you can visit EPA page:

But most of all be aware that you are part of earth and you are not separate from it, you are connected to earth, and you will always live here in this planet also named by ancient cultures

Mother Earth

God Bless You
