We have enough food to feed the ,
enough money to end ,
enough buildings to house the ,
enough knowledge to end the
and enough compassion to end almost any suffering.

What we lack is the courage to take down our evil leaders.

The world right now feels like the hunger games and we are the citizens of district 1.

Today white colonial capitalists have used up all the resources that indigenous people try to protect.

Bad! Thanks for asking.

What do you have to bear in mind when considering supporting a project?

1. Don't support mono-cultures
This is very important. are not helpful in regenerating the soil, attracting water, increasing biodiversity and they are not as effective ecosystems at sucking out of the air as mixed forests.

2. Support long-term projects
If a project plants trees and then cuts them down after they have grown to full size that is not helping anything. Make sure the project commits to protecting and fostering the forest for a long time.

3. Make sure indigenous people are included.
Conservation areas protect nature from any human influence, which includes indigenous people. But practice has shown, that forestation projects are more efficient if indigenous people are included, their knowledge is used and they can use and care for the land. Also it's only just to support indigenous people. .

4. Support respected projects.
Make sure the project you want to support is not all talk, but can also provide proof that they actually do what they say.
Check what certificates they have, if they won any sustainability awards and what newspaper articles write about them.

#FamousQuotes

My favorite Greta Thunberg quote about planet Earth of all time. 

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you

------------------

from old account.

"Explorer, what has your team found?"
"The planet is habitable. It was once home to a relatively developed species that called themselves 'humans', but they burned too many fossil fuels and caused a global climate catastrophe."
"Didn't they do anything to stop that?"
"Yes, they put their best minds to it and came up with a fool-proof plan: stop burning fossil fuels & leave nature intact so trees can suck the carbon out of the air."
"And did they succeed?"
"Naw, they went with Plan B: Let the market regulate itself."
