(True Activist) With the rainforests of the world being destroyed and burnt down at a rapid rate by the human society in order to profit from the area of the once lush jungle and home to wild animals, this becomes another problem for those living there.
Animals that seek refuge in jungles and forests have suddenly been displaced and oftentimes have nowhere else to go.
The orangutan population has further diminished because of land urbanization that they are on the brink of extinction, all thanks to human activity. →
Peru has vowed to put an end to palm oil-driven deforestation by 2021, according to reports, in a move that is being hailed as a “momentous win” for wildlife and sustainable agriculture by conservationist group the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).
The Andean nation joins Colombia in its pledge to produce the oil without deforestation. Palm oil cultivation has been a booming crop across Latin America, but has also been one of the foremost drivers of deforestation in rural regions. →
(Collective-Evolution) Innovation comes from all ages, and this is further seen in the story of Xóchitl Guadalupe Cruz, an eight-year-old girl from Chiapas, Mexico who invented an entirely solar-powered device for heating water.

(True Activist) Wildfires damaging thousands of kilometres of land are happening all over the world right now. About 21,000 square miles of Siberia’s forests have gone up in flames earlier this month, which brings the worst wildfires in Russia on record.

(True Activist) According to officials, Ethiopia could have possibly gotten a new world record by planting about 350 million trees in their country, all in a single day.
This campaign of tree-planting was started as part of a national initiative with the end goal of planting 4 billion trees all across the country in one summer. Part of this initiative is the prevention of further deforestation and climate change in their land which has a lot of drought.
The climate is changing, and it has been changing for a very long time. In fact, the climate has always been changing, and there are a myriad of factors that influence climate change like solar activity and much more. If you’re not educated on climate science, it’s easy to adopt the “doomsday” perspective that’s often dished out by mainstream media. However, when you look at what actual climate scientists are saying, it doesn’t seem like anyone on either side agrees with the media’s “climate hysteria” narrative.
