Greta Thunberg llega hasta la ciudad de San Francisco en un Mural

El artista del graffiti Cobre ha plasmado en la pared a la joven activista Greta Thunberg, la cual mira directamente a cada uno de los transeúntes de la ciudad de San Francisco, y hacerles saber, que el temido cambio climático tal y como nos recordó la obra de Banksy en su momento, es un hecho y que debemos actuar ya, o los efectos serán drásticos para el planeta.

El graffitero Cobre comentó en una entrevista;  «Mi arte callejero sobre Greta Thunberg, no es un tema político, es la referencia al ser humano, no nos importa lo que la gente piense de Greta, este mural es la obra que ensalza su palabra, el cambio climático es real y si no hacemos ya lo que nos toca, no hay futuro para nuestros hijos».

El artista argentino fue llamado por la organización climática One Atmosphere al saber que cobre querí pintar en san francisco. Cobre es conocido por su street art de caras tan famosas como el de Robin Williams, Frank Sinatra, Prince o Dalí, entre muchos otros.

a lot waste

I'll never understand how we can keep consuming, buying, and discarding things while there are those on the other side of the world who have nothing.

M1k32   2021-10-29 03:38:39 in Food & Hunger

So your suggestion is that we should stop eating?!

hodin   2021-11-02 10:15:30 in Food & Hunger

@M1k32: I think there is some possibility between *not eating* and wasting food right?  Liek for example, limiting your food to what you will actually consume (so as not to throw away uneaten, wasted food), and not overindulging in climate damaging foods like beef?

It's not very helpful for you to caricature @akhavane0593's comment like you did.

We can reduce carbon emissions by refusing to drink dairy milk. To produce more dairy milks takes more water and cows produce manure that leads to more water consumption. It also takes land to take care of the cows. Eating plant based milk wont need much water and produce less carbon emissions. It comes with benefit for our health.

Who caused climate change?

Maybe you should think about if the people caused it themselve or could it be our system?
Is capitalism really the solution or must we overthrow it?

Carbon Footprints in California

California is a relatively large state in the United States, with over 20 million people. It's average person's carbon footprint is around 9kg. However, worldwide, the average carbon footprint is only 3kg. Why is it that California's average carbon footprint is nearly triple the amount of the worldwide average?

My guess is because we drive our individual cars more instead of using public transport, we also eat more and shop more than most other places, when you add it all up it makes sense but it's still kinda sad.

I didn't mean to post that twice and I don't know how to delete the second one ?

Yaser Hosainy   2021-10-07 11:08:49 in Student Footprints

I agree with you, California's highways are the worst, the big traffic queues, dangerous car accidents, the big cities without a single tree, deforestation, wildfires........

Yaser Hosainy   2021-10-19 11:32:54 in Student Footprints

People have to use public transportation, better for the environment.

wapplegate12348   2021-10-19 20:24:42 in Student Footprints

Comparing California, a highly developed state to worldwide carbon emissions, where many third world countries can weigh down the average isn't the best comparison. If you look at the US average, 16 tons per person, CA is 5.5 tons below that average. When comparing a highly developed state to other developed states you will see that CA is on the lower end of carbon emissions.

I had a little over a the average footprint for my area but my friend had over DOUBLE the average. We need to seriously reduce our footprint.

My family and I grow a garden every spring. We have three planter boxes plus multiple pots full of herbs, strawberries, and different flowers.

reuse of plastic

To be honest every human being are lazy. Because recycling stuff such as bottles take up space and time which cause people to throw them into trash. It would be nice if we human could use those stuff over and over.

Instead of recylcing many things that we use we can come up with a method for every type of reusable items. This will allow all items to be reused in a proper way. This is more effcient for the enviroment
