(True Activist) It’s a well-known fact that dolphins are one of the world’s most intelligent animals. From their sociability, familiarity and friendly behavior they portray with humans, dolphins have been one of those animals that have long been loved by humans. Even until now, researchers continuously discover new information about dolphins and their unique skills and sophistication that have only been seen with humans before!
Similar to humans, dolphins are also capable of brutally mistreating each other and yet, despite our shared humanity, we have seen so many inhumane acts that humans have done to dolphins throughout the years. Perfect examples of these inhumane acts are the destruction of their habitats because of pollution and illegal poaching of these poor, intelligent animals. →

Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late. →

(Collective-Evolution) Water is life, but you wouldn’t know that after witnessing what’s happening around the world. We’re destroying our environment and constantly releasing harmful toxins into the veins of Mother Earth, who can only take so much.
We have the ability and the technology to clean up our water systems and start producing our products and energy in clean green ways, but industry corruption and red-tape prolong the process. At the same time, disease rates are rising at an exponential rate, and it’s clear that multiple factors could be contributing to this, including a lack of access to clean healthy water, on a global scale. →
