This is our home


Its biosphere is being endangered by the human activity. It is not a matter of "climate change" and "global warming". Those are subjects still under discussion and there is a controversy about the increase or decrease of earth's average temperature and its correlation to the human (i.e. anthropogenic) CO2 emissions.

To my understanding the problem can be summarised in a much more simple way: the earth hosts a population of 6.5·109 humans (six and a half thousand billions) which consume huge amounts of resources and generate waste at a large scale and at a very high rate. We humans have become a perturbation at the planetary level and there are facts and numbers that prove it. While the necessary scientific discussion on "which is the most reasonable approach to a global solution" goes on, there are things that we can do and that will help or mitigate our environment's degradation. Here are a few simple rules we can follow easily:

It won't take you that much but the impact can be enormous if many people follow it. I'm neither an environmentalist nor a fanatic, but I love to travel. Have a look at the following pictures and consider if it is worth to preserve those landscapes and creatures for the forthcoming generations.
