It’s a Beautiful Earth and Its Great To Be Alive

In the last few years many people across the planet have enjoyed the many beautiful things nature has to offer. Things like laying on the beach feeling the sun press against their cheeks, drinking homemade apple cider while mesmerizing the beauty of changing leaves, and looking out a frosted window seeing kids create snow angels out of white powder. These are just the few things, the simple joys, the heartfelt moments that might be taken away from us if we as individuals and as a group do not maintain some semblance of these environmental sensations.

One thing is for sure; our environment is changing at a rapid pace. Due to excessive carbon emissions, unnecessary energy consumption, over population, global warming, and carbon footprints our planet is diminishing before our eyes. Climate change is increasing, biodiversity is depleting and there are still people who are blithely unaware that it is actually happening. Is this a topic that should not be mentioned because people are scared of an environmental crisis?

Ignorance is not bliss. Awareness is key and should be ingested by every single person who survives on the planet that thrives every hour, minute, and second of a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. Optimism needs to be the fuel that fights off the “triple threat”- the environment, energy, and economy noted by Scott Bittle & Jean Johnson authors of Who Turned Out the Lights?.

With the help from one another; we can make our mother earth healthy. By sustaining, mitigating, and adapting to our environment great initiatives, innovations, and progress will take place. All you have to do is believe and acknowledge that this is not an uphill battle. There is a lot of work ahead, but if everyone tries to wake up to the solar, happiness for all can be achieved.

  1. Hi Morgan,

    Please be sure to sign your name at the bottom of the post so we know who is writing. Also, please post your blog by the due date – a significant grade reduction occurs for each day late. That said, I like the positive message of your post and your use of hyperlinks. You covered your readings well, but did not mention the Solar Decathlon, which was the topic for the post this time. Your writing is rather general and does not convey a specific point. Try to focus in next time.

    Best,

    Melissa M

      Morgan,

      Your comments are laudable but generic. Focus in on a point, cite a few facts or data along the way to convince. Demonstrate knowledge. And have an ask. What do you want your reader to do, think, take away from this blog. More edge and more point of view will help.

      Frank
