Pictures usually say more than words.

This beautiful landscape can be found all across the world. A stretch of road, beautiful greenery, blue sky; the epitome of what any adventurer would like to see. As time progresses, these kind of images will no longer be something you will be able to see for yourself, they'll be just that, images. Taking the time to see this kind of beauty where ever you might be, can go a very long way. It will hopefully instill the same kind of awe it has in me.

When you begin to see the world for the beauty it has, you can see why knowing what is going on in our environment is just as important. You will be informed in which companies are at fault for environmental tragedies or who has been helping to clean up such tragedies. Being aware can influence life decisions, like what appliances you could implement into your lifestyle, the companies you do your primary purchasing from, or even something as large as what kind of car you drive.

So next time you are driving through your area, take a moment to look around at your surroundings. You may be surprised  at what you might notice.


  1. I love how this post tries to get the reader to think about these larger issues regarding our environment in a casual, but intellectual way. The push towards an environment friendly world Is happening at a steady pace. The use of wind power has been on the rise, with Denmark generating more than a third of its electric and mechanical energy from the use of wind turbines. In the United States, biomass power generators make up 0.5 percent of the country's electricity and frees up space in land fills. Such statistics give me hope that we are approaching a ecofriendly world, but individuals must be aware that every action counts towards this change. People need to show they want cars that run on electricity, that they want to see products recycled. That is a decision that we, the people, must make. Governments and corporations can only do so much, and we must remember that they act on our wants and needs. If we show them that this is the direction we wish the world to go, they'll listen.

    1. Agreed, governments and corporations definitely are limited in what they can and cannot do, but at the same time, look to Sweden with their 1% trash in landfills. This was done, not only at the individual level, but at the governmental level as well. They created laws that would help and punish those who would go against the green movement. It is an interesting concept to have what most people say "Big Brother" stepping in, but if there could be a happy medium between the citizens and the government working together, we could honestly have a very harmonious lifestyle.
