My New Year Wish

Recently, I was reflecting about current situation of our beautiful planet, browsing through some terrible pictures and worrying news from 2014, and I could not help but go sensitive and scribble a few words – my wishes for the upcoming year.

So, my wish for 2015 is…

Toyota to Produce Hydrogen Fuel Cell Powered Car – Is It Good Or Bad

Toyota has announced the mass production of the new Toyota Mirai, a hydrogen fuel cell powered car that emits no CO2 or other exhaust gas at the point of operation, but water vapor instead.

Thus it is assumed and advertised to be 100% ecology-friendly.

They seem to forget, however, that water vapor is the gas that contributes to the greenhouse effect the most.

CNN piece is entitled rather optimistically, “You can drink this car’s exhaust”.

You don’t say?..

Read the news on Mirai car on CNN Money here:

Saving My Tomorrow

Have you ever thought who are going to inhabit the Earth after we’re gone? Who are going to inherit the planet with all of its environmental problems that are becoming more and more apparent, until tomorrow there will be no way back?

These kids did. They are raising concerns for their future, on this planet. The future that is influenced by OUR actions today. Just like generations of our ancestors did not care enough to think that after them the planet is going to be inherited by their descendants, many people today do not seem to think that only through sustainable planning of our actions today we can guarantee that our children and grandchildren will not cuss every time they think of us, tomorrow.

A new documentary called Saving My Tomorrow, starring a group of young kids who are trying to improve the situation by helping the environment and literally, save their tomorrow, along with stars such as Alan Cumming, Susan Saradon, and Jeffrey Wright, premieres Monday, December 15 at 7PM, only on HBO..

If only more grown-ups today were as advanced in their awareness as these kids.

Welcome To Care For The Planet Blog!

Welcome everybody!

This is the first post in my newest blog called Care For The Planet.

The purpose of this blog is two-fold.

First of all, like all bloggers on the web, I wanted to create a place where I could publish, promote and discuss my own thoughts, reflections and ideas on what I care about the most. In my case, it is our planet’s current environmental situation.

Through this blog, I hope to:

– contribute to promotion of environmental awareness through focusing on sustainable way of living as the only solution;

– argue that the sustainable living requires a person to adopt a certain mindset which, in turn, is a result of an intellectual, moral and even spiritual self-development;

– examine the influence of media and various environmental communication strategies on public opinion on this subject.

The second purpose – and in some ways it interlinks with the first one – I hope that with time, this blog becomes an environmental media web center with focus on various issues of current global environmental situation. Ideally, I would like it to have the same spread as, for example, some popular sport web portals. I would want Care For The Planet to become a place for people who share the same interest and passion for the environmental situation to read the latest media news, scientific articles, interact with each other through public debates, become familiar with progressive ideas and suggest their own ones, promote their own environmental blogs and websites, read the research bibliography and conduct their own research, and many more. It is not a secret that today people do feel lost, at times, browsing through an overwhelming sea of information available online, in search for an answer to a specific question or topic of interest. There is a plethora of environmental websites and blogs on the web, and all of them do offer some kind of useful information, but the multiple repetitions of the same posts that are constantly copied from one source to another makes the topic itself seem dull and dampens the enthusiasm of readers.

So please participate, contribute and use the materials on this blog to spread the awareness and share the knowledge.
