A day after Ondoy, Samoa was hit by a typhoon. A month before Ondoy forest fires burned down hundred thousand acres of forest in California. Years ago Hurricane Katrina devastated the United States, Floods kill hundreds in Quezon and thousands died in the tsunami in Indonesia.
These were all signs of the times that indeed Climate change is real. Many will say that it is a myth created by rich nations. But would it be harmful to preserve our environment? Would it be a burden to really live in harmony with nature?
If we want to survive we need to change our ways. We need people at the helm of our government around the world who would have political will to really start the change and harmonize with nature.
Relief goods, donations and assistance for victims of natural disasters are important but it is equally more important to act and make long term solutions that would ensure our continued existence.
Today, I share with everyone a movie in which my family and I watched together and was more than ever aware that the time to act is now.
Here is the movie, HOME. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.
As I quote from the makers of Home:
We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.
For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.
HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.
