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. Preparation may be tedious but without it, it could mean losing lives and valuable investments if you are caught with your pants down.
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.
In this series of articles, we will find uplifting news about efforts and actions done to help preserve the environment. Let’s hear some good news for a change!
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.
The Earthshot Prize will have a total of 50 winners by 2030. Famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough calls it “most prestigious environmental prize in history”. The name was inspired by John F. Kennedy’s call for unified efforts to reach the Moon in the 1960s. The Prince calls the Earthshot Prize a decade of action to repair the Earth.
Weather is a quintessential conversation topic. Whether you want to start a conversation or break the ice, weather will not let you down.
But what is weather? How does it work? It is so vital to daily life and to every living thing but it seems to be taken for granted. A lot of us only check the weather to see if we need an umbrella or a jacket. So let’s take a step back once again and review. We will check our understanding and rediscover what weather is and the science that goes behind it.climate change Flood Control Asia Meteorology weather
The new year is here but already, climate change rears its ugly head. Climate change has influenced and aggravated normal weather and pushed it to extremes causing entire ecosystems to deteriorate all around the world.
We will recap recent weather events from all around the globe. Climate change is affecting all of our lives in so many ways that it now makes perfect sense to pay attention to the news about it as much as we pay attention to world affairs. Hopefully, we will be able to use this information to better prepare ourselves in the future.climate change flood control Global Warming
The media plays an interesting role in our everyday lives. The information from the television, radio, newspapers, and the internet shape our view of the world. This new knowledge becomes the basis of our future actions and how we deal with the consequences. This is why people want and need the correct information; why we select our sources of information based on trustworthiness and reliability.
Sadly, many sources play to our fears; and whether we admit it or not, it robs us of our ability to approach the issue objectively. News about climate change is not immune to this either. A lot of the news we get about it frequently tell us that our years on earth are numbered, enumerating the many ways we could perish in the worsening weather. Why does climate change news need to be frightening?
