I like your style

And now for a little audio-visuals; I find that all medias (news reports, newspapers) are very doom-and-gloom-trigger-happy, constantly bombarding us with how bad everything is and how worst it is going to become, to the point where increasingly people wonder whether it is even worth doing anything about climate change or the environment since it's all a lost cause anyway...but that is only according to the media. The media very very rarely report on good news or successful outcomes, when this what they really should be doing, the least they can do to do their bit for the environment.

Luckily there are people like those I have featured below, who have the right attitude and voice. They are reclaiming the information and statistics and letting us know all is not lost, we can make a difference and there is good news, it is only waiting to be revealed.

First up is Dr. Hans Rosling's succinct, fascinating and excellently delivered lecture on the true statistic behind child mortality, which he concludes will help us stabilise and control the world population in order to fight against climate change. Click below to view. (Its available in 10 different languages!)

Then there is Annie Leonard, creator of The Story of Stuff Project who creates engaging and educational videos about environmental, social and economic concerns effecting us now. Her message is educational but motivational as she always offers a tangible solution to the problems.

This is how we should be thinking and I for one would rather think positive than wallow in negative.
