Earth Song – Love Song to the Earth

The 2015 Paris Agreement has failed. To say that its targets are under threat is a gross understatement. Not only have greenhouse gas emissions not been reduced, they have actually increased year on year since 2015. The lack of political will to act to save the planet is a betrayal of global proportions. The Earth song is more relevant than ever – forget following, it is time to lead and ACT NOW.

Water – Nature is Speaking – Penelope Cruz

Fresh water is the lifeblood of our planet, and freshwater ecosystems connect headwaters with oceans, land with water, and people with the resources they need to thrive.

Sky – Nature is Speaking – Joan Chen

The sky is not an empty space. It is full of air and surrounds the Earth forming the planet’s atmosphere. The atmosphere of Earth protects life on Earth by creating pressure allowing for liquid water to exist on the Earth’s surface, absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation, warming the surface through heat retention (greenhouse effect), and reducing temperature extremes between day and night.
