The Earth is alive

The English scientist James Lovelock holds the hypothesis that the Earth, our planet, is a living being. So far others have failed to prove the contrary.

No more dawned

Today no day dawned, as you have not dawn for anyone. In 2010, parts per million of CO2, scientists say were at 395, ie 45 higher maximum accepted to ensure our survival as a species. The scientists claimed that the safe limit for humanity was 350 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere. The United Nations for the same year tried to limit the level of CO2 at 450 parts per million (ppm), but their efforts were not heard.
