Picturing a green future

Europe SolarOur project is all about our own health and the health of our planet. A greener and happier world without pollution and toxic agriculture. Those goals are shared by the actions of Avaaz, and today they call on us all to write messages and send photos to EU leaders, as they are going to discuss to end carbon pollution in Europe. Every one of us posed with a message in front of a solar panel array. To join the action: https://secure.avaaz.org/campaign/en/climate_emergency_loc/?slideshow

One trillion trees

TreeBordersDespite the Paris accord the world is still losing 10 billion trees every year, chopping them down mostly. If we stop this and start large scale reforestation it will absorb enough greenhouse gasses to save the climate, according to the vision of the Trillion Trees partnership. Here we have planted over a hundred fruit and nut trees, wanting to create a Permaculture food forest. On top of the climate benefit this will also provide us with organic food. And some pretty flowers in springtime.

Wild wild horses

Wild horsesIn this picture we are practicing the horse stance, warming up a bit after swimming in the cool cool ocean. Those who are familiar with the Wim Hof method may recognize his style of movement and the sound (Click here for 14 seconds video). Aaah, oooh, aah, oooh. It is all part of our focus on living a long, happy and healthy lifespan.  We are becoming friends with the cold.

Ours is not a caravan of despair (Rumi)

Rumi2Planet earth is in need of supporters in the match of the century: Team Sustainability vs. Team Climate Catastrophe. Star players on our side: Plant based diet and Solar energy. In the opposition: Rainforest destruction and Coal and oil burning. Even if we can avoid climate meltdown the outcome will still be that our civilization is doomed. Osho says that we need a new humanity. Take heart. Ours is a caravan of hope for the new man: http://www.laozihouse.org
