  • By the date of posting... by the number of views... I'm not surprised why the world is protesting against its own story. We never respect nature and biodiversity. We are the dumbest species and suicidal parasites, which we invent and pay to survive. And to make matters worse... we still proclaim ourselves "intelligent". The apex of our evolution was to develop atomic weapons. And the apex of our conscience... use that to preserve peace. Human...what a joke! Meanwhile...some video of some nonsense explodes with millions of views and zero content. And then people complain!!! If the majority is ignorant and lazy...and don't know how to vote...we will never be a nation on a single planet! Translated with DeepL/Translator (free version)

  • WANT TO HELP SAVE THE PLANET? Here are 6 things every person can do NOW to save the Earth: 1. Go VEGAN. (food, clothes, accessories, toiletries, make-up, furniture etc.) 2. Consume products LESS and become an INFORMED consumer. - Don't buy *anything* new (except if necessary, like medicine or contact lenses). You can buy basically everything USED or make it yourself. - Do your RESEARCH before buying anything. Many products are destroying the environment via the extraction of raw materials, production process, transportation... Also production lines are full of human labor abuses. Do your RESEARCH if you must buy something. Remember, your purchase of a product acts to support that company and everything that went into that product. - If you don't know 100% how a product was made at each and every step, then **do NOT buy the product**. You could be unknowingly supporting the extinction of orangutans in Indonesia (ex. palm oil) or the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest (ex. beef). No joke. Stop buying products unless you are 100% informed. Don't be selfish. You don't need most products. Buy it used at eBay/Craigslist/Goodwill or make it yourself instead of contributing to the destruction of the planet. - Check if the product has any certifications, such as: RainforestAlliance, FairTrade, RSPO - Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, USDA Organic etc. - Stop buying via Amazon!!! It has rampant human rights abuses that have been clearly reported on many times, including abuses and neglect during COVID-19. In addition, despite some of its 'climate pledges', Amazon has a terrible negative impact on the environment. Think factories, energy-usages, packing for all of those boxes, carbon emissions for the trucks that deliver them etc. If you buy via Amazon you are supporting human rights abuses and environmental degradation. Do you really need that product? Just buy it used or at least directly form the actual company. Don't be selfish, be responsible. 3. Go plastic and packaging free. Don't buy ANYTHING with non-compostable packaging, or that's made of non-environmental material. If you do, make sure it's recyclable and recycle it properly. 4. ADOPT and REDUCE family sizes. - Humans have overpopulated the world and are destroying the environment as a result, especially people living in 'modernized' countries. The human population is almost at 8 billion. We need to intelligently and voluntarily work to get our numbers down to at least half of that. It is a very personal issue, but please consider adopting children instead of creating new children. There are currently over 100 million orphan children living in the world today. Consider adopting! Save a life, save the planet. - If having biological children, please consider smaller family sizes. - Donate money and/or volunteer at organizations that support women's rights and literacy. On average, women's illiteracy rates are inversely related to the number of children they have. I.e. the number of children a woman has decreases as she becomes literate and more educated. Here are some ideas: Room to Read, World Literacy Foundation, Malala Fund, UNICEF, CAMFED, Invest in Girls, Educate Girls, AGE Africa, She’s the First, Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE). 5. VOTE and become politically informed! Make sure to stay politically informed and pressure your local, state and national representatives to support issues and legislation that save and protect the environment and species. VOTE during all elections! 6. Use only RENEWABLE energy and use LESS of it. - Buy carbon offsets from a reliable company for your yearly energy usage. - STOP FLYING unless absolutely necessary (and buy carbon offsets if you do). Walk, bike, ride a velomobile, use public transportation instead of gas-powered cars. - See if your energy company has an option for you to buy green energy or support green energy initiatives. Install your own renewable energy sources, like solar panels. - Be conscious throughout your day and use as little energy as possible. Ex. instead of turning on the heat, just wear a few more layers and close the windows. We can save the planet if everyone just does their part. Everyone please act NOW!

  • I don't understand the difficulty that governments and people have understanding him... he is not just another environmentalist who likes nature... he is a realist who has actually witnessed the decline of the natural world over the past few decades of his life and simply wishes to see change because our actions will inevitably and most surely kill us !!! Honestly, while I'm typing this I don't know wtf else I can do to raise awareness and influence real change. How can people still care more about religion and abortion rights and even to a certain extent our own human rights when WE and THEY (our descendants) WILL ALL eventually DIE ?! I am so disgusted by people's priorities when THIS matter should be at the top of our priorities.

  • I really hope we transfer Attenborough's and Sagan's work to some kind of solid state medium, and launch it into space; Human civilization will last perhaps another century or two. I'd like to think that SOMEONE out there, perhaps long after our sun dies, will find it, and remember us.

I am of Greek origin, so I have a more sensitive ear than others, but I do wonder which nationality I should have had to enjoy that joke...Based on the audience's reaction, I should probably survey them to find out.

  • All credit must be given to (ALLAH) Almighty, the only true GOD for such magnificent creations, as well for running and keeping of all things in the whole universe. These species/wonders did not create themselves. There must be a great creator. Consequently, he must be solely worshipped, feared and praised all time. Consider embracing ISLAM before it’s too late.

He is so inspirational, humble, well spoken, interesting, well loved, and a respected individual, it’s no wonder that he’s the most sought after speaker or person everyone around the world would most love to meet. Love you Sir.
