Happy World Environment Day (WED)

The World Environment Day (WED) is held every year on June 5 since 1972 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Get Involved, make a difference.

Here is a news clip from the ABH-News.

In light of the oil spil.

It is now 47+ days counting. That OIL SPILL DISASTER has made me fall to my knees and pray that soon there will be some resolution. We must stop all future offshore drilling and look into alternatives. America has the capacity to lead this movement all across the world. When will we understand the role of the human race, to protect earth and all living things. To protect the natural resources not exploit them for profit. Human life, and life itself must have more value than money. It is just a must.

Every single person can make a difference.
Take a look a this blog post Sept 3, 2009.
Take a look at the stats:
Fact 20% of the world’s population consumes 80% of its resources.

The world spends 12 times more on military expenditures than on aid to developing countries.

Here are some quotes from the movie Home.

5,000 people a day die because of dirty drinking water

1 billion people have no access to safe drinking water

Nearly 1 billion people are going hungry

Over 50% of grain traded around the world is used for animal feed or biofuels.

40% of arable land has suffered long-term damage.

Every year 13 million hectares of forest disappear

One mammal in 4, one bird in 8, one amphibian in 3 are threatened with extinction

Species are dying out at a rhythm 1000 times faster than the natural rate.

Three quarters of fishing grounds are exhausted, depleted or in dangerous decline.

The average temperature of the last 15 years have been the highest ever recorded.

The ice cap is 40% thinner than 40 years ago.

Should I go on…..

Listen, there is hope.

Together we all can make a difference.
