OUR EARTH – OUR RESPONSIBILITY

Wednesday, 22 April 2020 marks the 50th Earth Day, a timely reminder that it is everyone’s responsibility to protect our earth, for future generations. We’ve all witnessed the effects of climate change, from the extreme weather conditions, such as the high windspeeds in the Bahamas last year, to the severe bushfires in Australia. We are also constantly reminded how global warming is causing water levels to rise (it is estimated that ice sheets four times the size of France melted in three years! Other pointers showing we must make change include the number of fish in the ocean that has halved since 1970 due to overfishing, climate change and pollution. It is also believed that 60% of animal life has been lost since the same year. What these issues have in common is the cause. Humans. We believe, however, that if we caused it, we can fix it.
