Are you flood ready?



Time and again, preparedness has been regarded as one of the most important values a person can have. Being prepared and being ready has been the central principle of countless organizations, from scouting groups, public services, to heads of states. It is plain and simple a good value to hold.

Visualize yourself living near a river. Look beyond the relaxing sounds of rushing water. If you have been paying attention, then by now you would have already thought about the risks. Of course there are risks to living anywhere whether by choice or by circumstance. In this case, preparing could mean taking note of rainfall in your area and perhaps the areas upstream too; to be ready in case the river overflows.

Bad news about climate change are almost always more highlighted especially in mainstream media. This makes sharing good news very refreshing. Let’s hear some good news for a change!

When writing and talking about climate change, the threats become the most highlighted, especially so in mainstream media. We touched these points in a previous article on climate change alarmism. This exposure to bad news makes it very refreshing to be able to share good ones. We dedicate a significant amount of time to news telling us the dangers we should prepare for so perhaps we should also show the same dedication to good news.

A Positive Start for the Decade
To start 2020, Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine of the British monarchy launched the Earthshot Prize. From 2021 to 2030, five solutions to top environmental concerns will be awarded funds annually. A multi-million prize to fund environmental solutions await the winners.
