Today against tomorrow

Today against tomorrow.
That is the modern clash, the last one.
The contention between two narrators on the same scene, of changeable setting, that is the heavenly vault, rather than every corner at play on our mother earth.
Two opposing stories daily told to the human spectator, but also a reader, as a voter, and more than ever a consumer.
“Think about today,” repeats one incessantly, “dissipate without sparing the living fuel that has been given to you by the industrial divinity you have created by yourself.
“Fill your journey on the road with accelerated revenue, in the form of an inescapable escape from primordial innocence.
“Eliminate any dubious obstacle from the run, as the prize unfolds as you whiz without turning back. And if someone has the inappropriate intrusiveness to compare you to a dumbly sad lab rat, maybe he’s right, but at the end of the show didn’t have you any fun anyway? No? Well, not bad, because after the end of the trip you’ll never have chance to warn the others.”
At the same time, on the other side of the stage, the antithetical story goes on air.
“Remember tomorrow,” says tenaciously the voice, “remember that every reason is useful for te whole action, here and now, for the foundations in the future.
“Sowing is a foolish gesture if you lack the least act of faith in the fruit that will come.
“Nonetheless, a fearless story as a selfless choice cannot take place without the help of the only guardian angels that nature will ever offer you.
“You can call them pure air, clean water and fertile land, if you prefer, but still today they are the only miracle that has never needed evidences.”
Well, this is the current conflict.
The dance that drags the whole of humanity on the opposite sides of the world.
Two stories murmured or constantly shouted in our conscience.
But only one of them will let today become tomorrow…

Five gifts to protect

Once upon a time five gifts.
Five priceless riches to take care of and protect.
As many living perfections, according to a study by the University of Queensland and the Wildlife Conservation Society, recently published by the journal Nature, located respectively in Australia, in the United States, in Brazil, in Russia and in Canada.
That is, the five custodians of the remaining wild regions of the world.
Nonetheless, we all know how often the keepers of a sublime sharing works, where time passes and memory vacillates.
They end up unhappily to take them for granted and neglect them too.
Arriving even to claim the merit of such a gift, instead of taking charge of the precious responsibility.
This is our worst betrayal.
Because there was a time when the earth made a deal with the creatures that it hosts and an inviolable commandment is written on it.
“Humanity,” said the planet, “you will be father and mother exactly like me. You will have to love and defend yours and my children with your life itself.”
Once upon a time there was a duty for everyone, no one should feel excluded.
Once upon a time the remaining gifts.
Let’s keep our promise and make sure that tomorrow they will be there again...

Seven remedies vs global warming

Here are some suggestions against global warming:

1. Never buy something new until the old one is completely broken, including clothes. In this way you will reduce the demand for materials, their transport around the planet and the pollution, since they will end up in a landfill.

2. Get rid of the dishwasher: it wastse energy and water.

3. (If you can afford it) Create a garden – or contribute to it, it will help prevent flooding.

4. In case you live in a city, why do you need the car? Take public transport, go cycling or walking. Rent a car when you go on vacation.

5. Turn off all the lights before going to sleep.

6. Buy local products; knock down so many miles of traveling food.

7. Persuade your neighbors to do the same.
