I'm with Leo // Before the Flood // NaBloPoMo

November means "National Blog Post Month", and again, I'm trying to participate. Today's question/topic/writing prompts would be:

"If you could be completely honest with no regrets, what would you say and to whom?"


I was watching Leonardo DiCaprio's climate change documentary "Before the Flood" yesterday. For a limited time you will be able to watch it for free, so don't miss you chance.  Go ahead and watch it. I will even put it right here for you, so you don't have to leave my blog to look it up:


I'm begging you to watch it, because it shows you the ugly truth. But let's go back to the NaBloPoMo question.


If you are one of the people saying there is no climate change, YOU would be the one I'd love to be honest with and tell you:


First of all I'd like to ask you- do you have eyes and ears? 

Ok then. Step outside. Watch the news (and I'm not talking FOX news. I'm talking international news). Check the weather. Look at the melting of the polar ice caps. Storms, anyone? Droughts? And then think again.

Donald Trump has claimed global warming was “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive," - I'm speechless. Human activities, OUR activities, contribute to climate change by causing changes in our earth's atmosphere in the amounts of greenhouse gases, aerosols, and cloudiness. The largest known contribution comes from the burning of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide gas to the atmosphere. And face it, the United States are contributing TONS of it.

There is an analysis from the World Resources Institute which shows that from 1850 to the year 2011, the United States (a single country!!!) produced 27 percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions of the world. No other single country was close — indeed, the U.S. even outdistanced all the nations of the European Union combined:

CBS News published the Top 10 Smoggiest Cities in the US. Did your city make the list? Just click through the gallery, and especially read what this smog not only does to our planet, but to your health as well:



The USA are such a God fearing country. How can you treat God's creations like this? Producing HUGE amounts of trash every second. Driving the biggest cars with the worst mileage for the shortest distances. Throwing your trash out of said cars in the middle of nowhere. I've seriously NEVER seen that much trash laying around. Never. And I've traveled a lot.




How can you deny something that is happening right in front of your eyes? May I remind you of the devastating floods in Louisiana this year? Just in case you forgot, click HERE.

Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. 
What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.

    1. Thanks, Harmony, for taking time to read my post and even leaving a comment! I really appreciate it :)
      Being a pretty "green" European expat in the USA, I am shocked every single day. I'm trying to educate my friends (and readers on here) as good as possible though. It's tough.

      Have a great weekend and stop by again!
