Nature was, and still is, one of the greatest medicines ever put forth on this earth, and the ability to juice that potent gift and simply drink it is a godsend. Cancer, chronic heart disease, and various other serious ailments can be preemptively taken out of action; if the body has all the nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and alkaline it needs to fight off free radicals.
Juicing Is Essentially Nature’s Greatest And Best Tasting Form Of Medicine; From Strong Bones, Great Skin To Cancer Prevention: Juicing Is A One-Stop Solution To Getting The Body Onto A Healthier Track.

Flamingos have the ability to produce a substance very similar to pigeon milk, very rich in fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Both the male and the female feed the young for at least two months with this milk, produced by some glands present along the upper digestive tract. When the beak is developed and strong, the young will be able to feed themselves, filtering food. #flamingos#pink#bird#wwf#wild#photography#canon#nature#stopclimatechange#stoppoaching
We are the first generation to know that we are destroying the planet, and the last one that can do anything about it.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation and contributes to climate change more than the entire transport sector combined.
We turn forests into feedlots.
We turn rivers into chemical sewers.
We turn biodiversity into monoculture.
All for the purpose of turning life into death.
When we choose to nourish ourselves with plants, we not only better our own health, we better the health of the planet and all of its inhabitants 🌍 What a beautiful cycle we have strayed so far from ✨ #nofilter#livelikeyoucare#vegan#sustainability#livelikeyoucare#vegangirl#australia#plantbased#sunshinecoast#zerowaste#respectourearth#stopclimatechange
#10yearchallenge ijsberen verzwakken door ons #stopclimatechange het is maar een kleinigheidje om je afval in de vuilnisbak te gooien en als de vuilnisbak vol zit hou het even bij tot dat je een andere vuilnisbak tegenkomt. Dit is maar iets kleins, maar je kan nog veel meer doen.
India Climate Change Impacts: India’s energy future could tip the scales of global climate change, but the extreme weather is already here.
India is highly depended on agriculture and 60% of India’s agriculture is rain-fed. And due to climate change, 15% of India’s groundwater resources are damaged, and falling water table is suspected to deal a severe blow in progress of agriculture. Also rising carbon dioxide levels due to global warming is suspected to shrink down the amount of protein in crops like rice and wheat, which are primary food source for majority of the population in the country. Leaving populations at risk of malnutrition, low immunity and raising the risk of diseases affecting the population severely.
“What should we as a nation do? Decisions have to be made on incomplete information. In this case, we must act on the recommendations of Gore and the IPCC because if we do not reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and the climate models are right, the planet as we know it will in this century become unsustainable” first women in the United States 🇺🇸 to receive a #PhD in #meteorology Dr. #joannesimpson was born #onthisdayinhistory on March 23rd 1923 in Boston MA. Having watched her mother struggle through difficult marriages “I made up my mind, I think by the time I was ten years old, that there was absolutely no way I was going to get myself into that sort of situation. No matter what happened, I was going to be able to make my own living and to provide for whatever children I might have without depending on anybody else.” She went on to get a PhD despite her masters advisor telling her and others that no women had ever gotten a PhD in meteorology and if one did, they would never find a job. Not only did she get a PhD, she became the head of the Tropical Rain Measuring Mission and storm modeling program at #NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the “mother” of modern research on tropical clouds and hurricanes publishing over 190 articles. In 1987 she became the project scientist for TRMM (Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission), a program to have a satellite carry the first spaceborne rain radar and a passive microwave system to accurately measure rainfall across the tropics) which she successfully saw to fruition. She felt that “I have always felt that I’ve been carrying a big burden for other women, because if I mess up then the chances for other women to get the same kind of job are going to be diminished.” #shero#herstory#womenmakinghistory#hiddenfigures#shepersisted#womeninstem#womenshistory#femalescientist#watercolorillustration#feministart#womencreatingchange#womeninscience#trailblazingwomen#womenshistorymonth#climatechangeisreal#stopclimatechange
To end my group of posts about the Youth Climate Strike on Friday March 15th, 2019 I would like to leave you with this message from Mother Earth. Please respect our earth as I really believe if we don’t make a change quick, we may not make it that much longer. We are slowly killing ourselves and our planet. Do anything you can. Raise awareness, buy in bulk, go zero waste, do whatever you can but most importantly love and respect our planet.

So this is happening in a few weeks: a convoy from Hobart to the Frontline (Adani) camp and then back down to Canberra, with rallies and events at the stops along the way. It'll be one of the most significant protests in recent Australian history, and will get people thinking about climate change in the lead up to the national election. You can join for a part or all of the convoy, come along to one of the events, or help promote the message online. Check the @bobbrownfoundation website for more details.
Hopefully we'll see you there. I'll be joining the convoy in Melbourne for two weeks, and drawing all the way, so watch this space. #permacultureillustrator#stopadaniconvoy
Posted @withrepost • @reduxpictures Hi all! My name is Luke Duggleby @lukedugglebyphoto and I am a documentary and portrait photographer who has been based in Bangkok, Thailand for over a decade. I will be taking over the @reduxpictures feed this weekend.
Considering the recent student climate change protests across the world, in a show of solidarity I decided to show work related to this very subject. With a grant from the Earth Journalism Network I recently spent time in the Mekong Delta of Southern Vietnam documenting how climate change and damming of the Mekong River upstream is impacting this delicate ecosystem, home to over 5 million people who largely rely on farming. The series I call A Damaged Delta.
The 3 posts will each cover a different aspect of the Mekong Delta. 1/3 will show the culture of the region, 2/3 will illustrate the causes and issues it faces and 3/3 will show victims of this change.

When this little thing is put in your arms and you don’t know what or how to feel. All you know is you’re both here and it’s your job to keep her alive. A bond grows daily and she will teach you.
All I know is I want our daughter to love her world - to embrace its biodiversity and not take what she doesn’t need. To enjoy local food that’s in season. We create their future and the generation before have failed us.
So this page will be my learning curve (and her daddy’s)
P’s first protest.🌎✊🏻Today, P, @_kcampbell and I joined youth from around the world in protest of climate inaction. Our future and the future of generations to come is nearing a point of no return and it’s time to act. Thank you @gretathunberg for igniting the spark this world so desperately needs and inspiring today’s youth to take action into their own hands❤️👊🏻(**If you repost this photo, please credit!**) #climatestrike#schoolstrike4climate#fridaysforfuture#daughterlove
Our World Is Like A Terrarium Where A Fragile Balance Supports Life.
Unfortunately, Earth’s Environmental Balance Is Out Of Whack...Our world is more fragile and smaller than ever before. We have abused our world for far too long. It’s exhausted and dying, and TAKING US WITH IT. Some of us just haven’t figured that out yet.
Now, More Than Ever,
humanity must become
A GOOD SHEPHERD
FOR OUR WORLD,
not its consumer and destroyer.
We must learn to
VALUE THE HEALTH OF EARTH’S ECOSYSTEM
MORE than we value material surplus and wealth.
That’s a big mindset change, I know, but only “human change” can preserve the world as we know it today. We must find a way to live as a species and coexist with healthy populations of plants and wildlife all over the world. After all, we live “in” the environment, not apart from it..SAVING NATURE SAVES US.
Certainly, some shred of humanity will survive no matter how bad things become, but I think the world will be a far sorrier place without bees, butterflies, birds, elephants, whales and so on. Just about everything we love today will pass before our eyes if we don’t change as soon as possible how we live in this world.
