Another interesting break down to the present argument for and against Global Warming

An interesting break down to the present argument for and against Global Warming


 
Story: WHAT ONE MAN CAN DO

 

Costa Nativa Ecotours
Troncones, Ixtapa. Mexico
contact Alejandro costanativa@hotmail.com or any of the local hotels

This is the story of one man's passion (a fellow surfer) and the large responsibility he has personally taken on to make a change.

My wife and I, while in Troncones enjoying a surf trip, met Alejandro, who has built a company around creating guided tours of the local rivers, streams and beaches (he is affiliated with all local hotels), he is a very knowledgeable gentleman with much compassion to his environment.

On his Eco - Tour you will enjoy the nature settings as you kayak up and down the local streams and soak in the beaches and some local food, but at the end of your tour he will also introduce you to the presence of civilization as you lay witness to the mounds of trash that collect on the jungles banks after being washed from towns & cities further upstream and makes it's way to the ocean - clogging and contaminating all in its path and in turn take away this peaceful beauty, yet there is not a soul or building around as this has all been facilitated many miles upstream.

Part of the tour is to help collect and clean this misinformed disbandment of everyday waste - plastic bottles to wrappers - bag loads at a time - this is a never ending deal as further upstream - people have the 'out of site out of mind' approach but this can be slowed down or stopped by constant education to the effects of their present actions.

Costa Nativa EcoTours
One Beach at a Time
Except for participating physically when visiting Troncones and spreading the word about his business to fellow travelers, at the moment I don't believe there is no way to financial help Costa Nativa Ecotours for now - but knowledge that this is a global problem that we all have to deal with, and there are many ways we personally can make a difference - as Alejandro is selflessly doing - then his efforts are spreading further than, I am sure, he could imagine.

  AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH

An Inconvenient Truth
www.climatecrisis.net
An eye opening look at what is going on with global warming, very easy to watch but very hard to swallow. I highly recommend watching this DVD and taking on the responsibilities that are necessary, in my home country, where the effects are very obvious, they are trying to make it compulsory in all schools to watch this movie.

There are ways of giving and supporting but there is also simple ways of incorporating this to make a difference in your own life. (download "ten things to do" list in pdf.)
