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 yo…

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.

Speaking about Global Warming with dad

“Daddy”, I start to say, reading an article on the smartphone, “new petrol and diesel car sales in Europe must be phased out before 2030 if the auto sector is to play its part in holding global warming to the Paris agreement’s 1.5C goal…
“What’s the Paris agreement, Liza?”
“The pact by European countries to limit the emissions increase to 1.5°C, since this would significantly reduce risks and the impacts of climate change…”
“What’s this climate change, honey?”

“Dad?! Climate change… I was reading about global warming, right?”
Global warming? What’s that?”

“Okay, I quote from Wiki: Global warming is the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects.”
“And it’s bad, isn’t it?
“Are you kidding me, dad?”
“No, I’m not…”

“Listen, daddy, I’m also reading this from that article: A draft report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change makes clear that 2C of warming would expose around 10 million more people i…

Global deforestation rate 2017

Once upon a time thegreen.
And all that makes part of it.
An apparently negligible, flying leaf on a melancholic movie scene.
A nice tree from a child’s drawing.
A fascinating forest in a fantasy novel.
Think about as if it was something really important.
As the main essence of the world we live in.
Like water should be.
Like every human being is.
Then, see the future we’re building on our common horizon.
When every day an area the size of New York City was lost.
So each hundred days an area the size of Scotland.
And within one year an area the size of Italy.
Once upon a time an area, a green one, not the country itself.
However, at the end of the day, do you really think there is a difference?

India water crisis 2018: the crazy choice

Once upon a time in India.
Once upon a time 600 million people living with an absurd choice in our so-called modern times.
I have a few water, indeed.
But, how could I use that?
Should I wash myself or my clothes?
Should I use it to clean food or my home?
Should I keep it for worst times to come?
Should I drink it and stop thinking about?
Living as the rest of the world, believing I had only that for good.
Now…
Once upon a time in India, yes it is.
Once upon a time a country that by 2030 will have access to half the water it needs.
But, more than everything.
Once upon a time the water...

Antarctic ice melting rate 2018

Once upon a time a world.
Not this one, just to play a game.
Once upon a time a planet where ice in the Antarctic was melting at a record-breaking rate.
Imagine another earth, not ours, where the consequent sea rising might have disastrous costs for every creature’s life.
Let’s say it was not from a random fake news Facebook page, but on a report made by scientists in the US and UK.
Let’s also add another study warning that unless crucial act will be made in the following decade, the melting ice will provoke more than 25cm to an entire worldwide sea level increase of more than a metre by 2070.
Take this as a fiction story, if you prefer.
Anyway, once upon a time a tale like that.
Then, try to visualize billions of people who didn’t give a shit about that.
Can you?

Human good luck

I am the moon and I call it good luck, looking at you.
Yes, it's me.
You know? The largest of stars, despite I am not one of them.
My perspective is blessed.
Don’t laugh at me, since I'm fragile.
But I'm not going to hide.

Because I call being here a good luck.
Tonight, the following one, but also the one before and the night after.
Right now.
While I’m just the moon.
Nothing more and nothing less.
From three quarters until disappearing, passing through a magical half.
But I’m still the other big light up on the sky, though by reflection.
What a joy, anyway.

Because I call enlightening you a very good luck.
They say there is always a great moon behind a great sun.
Fortunately, there are eclipses to prove the he is behind me.
I'm the one who has always been next to you.
From the first day to the last one.
From sunrise to sunset.
And even where you insist on moving to the hidden side of your heart, I will wait for you at the end of the ride, hoping you had fun.
