~ World Wildlife Fund

Here is another fantastic environmental foundation! One, that many people have probably heard of before. Grass Stain has officially become a supporter of the World Wildlife Fund via Social Vibe. With over 45 years of experience in saving the planet, the WWF has been one of the leading conservation organizations. The organization has a broad network with more than 6.2 million members in almost 100 different countries. The World Wildlife Fund has a unique way of combining innovation, collaboration, and research, to promote action on a local and global scale.

“We are committed to reversing the degradation of our planet’s natural environment and to building a future in which human needs are met in harmony with nature. We recognize the critical relevance of human numbers, poverty and consumption patterns to meeting these goals.” Their goal, “By 2020 WWF will conserve 19 of the world’s most important natural places and significantly change global markets to protect the future of nature.”

Some of the major climate projects the WWF is working on consist of progressive research in the Florida Keys, Antarctica, North East Atlantic, and in American Samoa. This scientific data will help aid in a wide variety of issues dealing with coral bleaching, sea surface temperature, and marine wild life vitality.

Climate: Your Fired

Donald Trump joins the hoard of conservative climate change deniers. Trump spoke to a group of 500 members, apart of the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester, New York. He called upon the  Noble Prize Committee to take back Vice President, Al Gore’s 2007 Noble Peace Prize. New York, similar to the eastern continental U.S., has witnessed one of the coldest winters in history.Major cities have been setting record low temperatures and record snow fall.

Although Trump mentioned that the cleanup of American industry would only make the United States a mockery to China, India, and Japan, environmentalists and other officials have stated that China, India, and Japan are actually leading the way in clean-energy technology.

On the west coast and around the globe, major cities have been reporting record highs, for winter temperatures. In Vancouver, Canada, snow had to be trucked in, because there was too little, for a few of the 2010 winter olympic events.

I guess when we talk about GLOBAL warming, I guess we’re really talking about New York.
