A Tuesday Eco-Collection

Today’s eco-collection has a little bit of everything:  beautiful image from space, terrific music, an amazing demonstration of graphic drawing illustrating how to transition from fossil fuels, and an infographic on how we can help make the oceans cleaner and safer.

I love this image of the earth with the sun.  Even though I’ve used it in a previous post, it seems appropriate to use again, especially with a lovely song by Roger Whittaker, released in 1970 that I think I will make the theme song of Peace for Every Living Thing:

(Turn your speakers up so you can hear the words, click and sing -a-long)

Everybody Talks About a New World in the Morning

Everybody talks about a new world in the morning,
New world in the morning so they say;
I myself don’t talk about a new world in the morning,
new world in the morning, that’s today.

And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on,
and I don’t know why I have to make a song;
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning,
new world in the morning takes so long.

I met a man who had a dream he’d had since he was twenty,
I met that man when he was 81;
He said too many folks just stand and wait until the morning,
don’t they know tomorrow never comes;
and he would feel a new tomorrow coming on,
and when he’d smile his eyes would twinkle up in fun.

Everybody talks about a new world in the morning,
New world in the morning never comes.
And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on,
and I don’t know why I have to make a song;

Everybody talks about a new world in the morning,
New world in the morning takes so long….

“If we do nothing, we still get to a post-carbon future, but it will be bleak. However, if we plan the transition, we can have a world that supports robust communities of healthy, creative people and ecosystems with millions of other species. One way or the other, we’re in for the ride of a lifetime. Understand the issues and pitch in. It’s all hands on deck.”  — Ecoevolution
