The best way to help the Earth is to stop or reduce the actions humans take that poison her systems. Reduce, reuse, recycle. The Earth is choking on our trash and toxins.
As a geologist and geophysicist, and retired science teacher I have always stressed that each person has a responsibility to be a good steward of this planet we call home.
When people say that their actions don’t make a difference, I remind them of Chaos Theory and the Butterfly Effect which says that a butterfly beating its wings over Peking today will cause a thunderstorm over New York in two weeks. Others will see your actions and copy them. Soon hundreds, even thousands, are working to save the Earth – all because of you.
