Earth Day: Education, Learn, Grow, Protect the Earth

https://www.ultimateglobes.com/lugano-globe-p/wp21101.htm
Lugano
Another Earth Day is yet upon us and evaluating the state of affairs within our celestial home can feel somewhat dismal. Global warming is a verifiable reality. Temperatures have risen and Arctic ice floes are melting. Coral reefs and marine life are being affected by pollution. The widespread impact of globalization and westernization is not a positive one. Thanks to pollution and others forms of interference with Mother Nature’s rhythms flood patterns have changed, dams and other methods of redirecting the flow of water have altered the face of the landscape and terrain of Planet Earth. This has flattened mountains, piled hills, reclaimed land from the oceans and even acted as a catalyst for seismic activity. Despite the obstacles of living in a dynamic and ever changing world, there are reasons for optimism. The Montreal Protocol has improved stability in the protective ozone layer. Within the United States and the countries of the European Union, more stringent regulations regarding manufacturing practices and the disposal of waste has led to improvements in air quality.

April 22, 2018 commemorates the 48th Anniversary of Earth Day, a global cooperative effort to demonstrate a consistent commitment to environmental preservations and conversation. Legislation and various agreements pertaining to climate changes and global warning have been passed in an attempt to improve conditions on Planet Earth and reduce the impact of pollution and other harmful influences. National concerns regarding the quality of air and water have turned the Environment Protection Agency into a household name. 


Some of the environmental challenges we face are daunting and can seem intractable, but there are some good reasons to feel reassured by the tools and expertise that the scientific community brings to the table. Within the United States America the amount of death due to natural disasters have plummeted drastically and that is largely due to better understanding and to appropriate hazards warning systems that Earth scientists have developed.


Computers and instruments that used to take up whole rooms now fit snugly onto autonomous aircraft, satellites, and robots. At this moment, 1,459 satellites orbit Earth—including 19 that are part of the NASA fleet keeping a watchful eye on this dynamic, fragile planet. The authors of the EOS article note that a unified, global, high-resolution 3-D map of the human fingerprint on Earth is within reach due to the remarkable lidar instruments, aerial photogrammetry, and satellite observations that are now available.

Lugano Desktop Globe

Take the time to learn about the wonderful world that surrounds us. Purchasing a globe and spending some time with a child to teach them about the environment can help them understand why protecting the Earth is important. Seeing stories about problems with air quality or pollution may seem far from home but when they look at a globe like the Lugano up close it helps them see the world in a different way. There are so many educational opportunities just from having a globe in your home. Celebrate Earth Day together, clean up a yard, plan ways to reduce waste and use of hazardous products in your own home.
