Warning! Serious and sad images ahead!
Above the Sea
This looks beautiful, like clouds or sea foam but it’s deadly toxic runoff in New Delhi. This is The Yamuna river, holy to Hindus and accounts for 70% of the the city’s water supply. Delicious.
This bird is covered in oil from a spill in Louisiana this year. Most of my friends and coworkers in New Orleans didn’t even know about it.
Into the Woods
Save the trees. Why? Greenpeace says there is an significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions. This kills off animals like sumatran tigers causing them to be severely endangered. Local communities also suffer for people’s need of paper and palm oil. Greenpeace says, “[Indonesia] is home to between 10 and 15 percent of the world’s known plants, mammals, and birds.”
Who would ever prefer to have a landscape that looks like this instead of one covered or dotted in trees?
