This rock we call home is such a magnificent place. As we all know, the earth is an extremely complex and dynamic ecosystem, where organisms interact and the environment creates the ideal conditions for life. The earth has everything. Sometimes it's warm, sometimes it's cold, there's a lot of water and a lot of lands, but not too much. The earth is perfect. It's in trouble. This leads to earth day of 2020. This year earth day is focusing its 2020 earth day campaign on "climate action," and so are we.
By the end of 2020, countries are expected to increase their commitments to the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change. It is time for citizens to call for greater global ambition to solve our climate crisis. Unless every nation in the world ACTS -- and ACTS with urgency and ambition -- we are consigning present and future generations to a dangerous future.
Everything is connected. The food chain, from the tiniest organisms to the largest creatures, such as blue whales, keeps humans alive. When a species becomes endangered, it’s a sign that our ecosystem is slowly falling apart. Healthy ecosystems depend on plants and animal species. Without healthy forests, rivers, oceans, and more, we will not have clean air, water, or land. If we allow our environment to become contaminated, we risk our health.
Earth Day 2020 will be far more than a day. It must be a historic moment when citizens of the world rise in a united call for the creativity, innovation, ambition, and bravery that we need to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future.
Thanks to heroic actions around the world, we will overcome and recover from the coronavirus. Life will return to normal, but we must not allow the return to business as usual. Our planet — our future — depends on it. Find inspiration here to take action, read other stories, and add your voice to the map. As we overcome this immediate crisis, we will tell the world that we are ready to solve the next one.
On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, let’s remember that the smallest of changes can make a difference. We just need to commit to them and make them a part of our everyday lives.
