Earth Day 2019 and our responsibilities
Gifts of nature to our planet are the millions of species we know and love, and many more that remain to be discovered. Unfortunately, humans have irrevocably altered the balance of nature and, as a result, the world faces the highest rate of extinction since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago. But unlike the fate of dinosaurs, the rapid extinction of species in the world today is the result of human activity.
Earth Day is celebrated all over the world on April 22. Earth Day is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of our impact on the Earth and share the beauty of this amazing planet with peoples.
The unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of flora and fauna populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, sustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides, to name a few. The impacts are far-reaching.
All living beings have an intrinsic value, and each one plays a unique role in the complex web of life. We must work together to protect endangered and threatened species: bees, coral reefs, elephants, giraffes, insects, whales and much more.
The good news is that the rate of extinctions can still be slower, and many of our declining, threatened and endangered species can still recover if we work together now to build a united world movement of consumers, voters, educators, leaders religious and scientists to demand immediate action.
Tech Mag is asking people to join our campaign to protect our species. Our objectives are:
- Educate and raise awareness about the rate of acceleration of the extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.
- Achieve important political victories that protect large groups of species, as well as different species and their habitats.
- Build and activate a global movement that embraces nature and its values.
- Encourage individual actions, such as the adoption of the plant-based diet and stop the use of pesticides and herbicides.
