Nature Beautiful 3

LET'S START THIS NATURE BEAUTIFUL WITH A SONG!

It does seem that all those plastic bottles that we keep buying create a lot of problems for our planet …
Read this short article from the National Geographic magazine to get an idea of pollution and the waste of fossil fuels.

Watch this short film that covers the story of fossil fuels ... it was made by a teacher who wanted to explain things easily to his students ... I think he did an excellent job, watch it and see what you think...

What are fossil fuels?
Take a look at this eco stat site to understand fossil fuels a bit better …
Why not write your own list of ways that you can stop using plastic bottles … and plastic in general ... can you calculate how many hours you could use a light bulb from the energy saved recycling plastic bottles in your home?

FRESH AIR
Now that the weather is getting better, why not explore your local conservation areas?
Here is the Somerset butterflies conservation site.

Take a walk for free with your family, see how many butterflies you can spot. Notice how numbers change each month, maybe keep a log book of your sightings. Can you draw some of these exquisite insects?

Maybe you will be lucky enough to walk in a bluebell wood … but if you can’t, why not enter this window for a while and listen to nature ...

Noah Bird on Project Noye

“The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril. There may still be disputes about exactly how much we’re contributing to the warming of the earth’s atmosphere and how much is naturally occurring, but what we can be scientifically certain of is that our continued use of fossil fuels is pushing us to a point of no return. And unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.”
(Barack Obama)
