10/10 Personal Pin This infographic is super relevant, as both Alabama and my home state of Tennessee are experiencing incredibly severe droughts. Conserving water is super important, and also a very easy way to lead a more sustainable life.
In Honor of World Oceans Day: Infographics that Explore the Deep Blue Sea
The Ocean is a Garbage Can ... Verrier's eye-catching rendering depicts objects bobbing in an ocean. The graphic correlates depth to the number collected since the first Coastal Cleanup day in 1986. In an instant, it's easy to see how difficult it is for marine life to survive in that much detritus.
An ocean wave, laden with oil & toxic dispersants, from the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Is technology simultaneously improving our lives & destroying the planet? IS the solution to pollution, dilution, or, is it possible to break our planet's oceans? These are difficult questions to answer, but the direction the human race must swiftly move in, is painfully obvious when this image crosses ones vision for the future. NO OFFSHORE DRILLING, THE CONSEQUENCES ARE DIRE.
Deforestation also drives climate change. Forest soils are moist, but without protection from sun-blocking tree cover they quickly dry out. Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere. Removing trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun’s rays during the day and holds in heat at night. This disruption leads to more extreme temperatures swings.
