Time to change...

Nowadays, we can listen everywhere that our planet is in serious danger. However some people say that the situation of the Earth isn’t so bad. Curiously, these people are usually supported by the countries’ governments which are in the center of this environmental problem.
Everyone knows that if the Earth’s temperature keeps rising, the human beings and all the sustainability of the planet will be affected. So, the question is: “Do these people think that they are safe from the calamities that will happen in a near future?”. I think they know that if this situation becomes worse, the human beings will abide the consequences of their acts. But these people are moved by power and greed and they won’t stop unless someone does something.
This being the case, people must lose their fear and they must address all the people who ignore the fact that the planet Earth is being destroyed.
Even if our words seem insignificant and that our strengths seem to disappear, we must be persistent and we must think that sometimes a small sign can make a difference.

Climate change: a problem with no solution

Nowadays, the human kind is concerned about exploring the universe, develop technologies, conquer countries, invent a new nuclear bomb to destroy an enemy country, etc. However, we don’t realize that all these problems are hiding another one which is much worse: The Pollution of the Earth.
This huge problem is killing us slowly: the global temperature is rising, glaciers are melting, rainforests and water are disappearing and one hundred billion species are being killed (including us!) and we just don’t care! All we care about is if our country’s economy is better, if we have sufficient money to buy something and finding a way to earn more.
How could we think about all these insignificant things if the place where we live is being destroyed?! Primitive species of human kind could live without all these technologies and habits. They didn’t destroy our planet to survive, so why do we? The Earth is a precious thing that we must preserve at any cost! It’s the only home we have, by now.
We must be taught to have green choices, such as recycling or saving energy and water. It is this thought that might save our planet and consequently our lives!

An English teacher in Paris!

Yes, I've just arrived from Paris!

I went there for the first time and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the city!
Amazing monuments and museums, beautiful gardens, wonderful buildings and a magical river where one can live romantic moments or just dream and smile and enjoy the beauty of life!
It was wonderful to feel the motion of the city while walking along the crowded sidewalks and streets!
On the opposite side of all that, the peace of the huge green gardens brought strength and warmth to my spirit...
PARIS: the city of light, the city of love! No doubt about it!...
