Earth Day request from Greenpeace

“The optimism of action is better than the pessimism of the thought.” – Greenpeace activist


I admit I did not realize that today is Earth Day. I’ve been occupied with travelling from one place to another – I wish it was abroad – that I only learned about Earth Day just this morning over the radio on my way to work. I also don’t know if since when we have been celebrating Earth Day. I totally have no idea.

Anyway, as one self-declared environmentalist, this one email coming from prompt me to comply with their call to action.

Here’s an excerpt from this said email:

…Here at Greenpeace, we’re pushers of a controlled substance. It’s called hope…

…When we take action against environmental crimes, we also take action against despair. And there are times when inspiring other people to take action are by far the most powerful outcome that we could hope for…

…If you agree, we want you, and 2,999,999 people like you to sign up as climate activists. Together let’s act and protect our future…

The most important meeting of the century

When the UN Climate summit convenes in Copenhagen this December, delegates there will be deciding the fate of the Earth. It’s looking more and more likely they will bring us a lot of hot air, not a cooler planet.

YOU need to tell them that’s not good enough.

YOU need to raise the bar on the world’s expectations.

It’s time to get involved. It’s time to get your friends involved. It’s time to get your parents or your kids involved.

Our first mission is to get the message out that we want our leaders to take personal responsibility for stopping climate change.

The first step to ensuring that the climate summit makes real decision is to make sure that real decision makers are there.

This Earth Day, please join us in this conspiracy of hope called Greenpeace, and inspire others to action…
