Happy Earth Day! Here is a new time-lapse of images from the International Space Station, titled The World Outside My Window. You may not be looking at it from this perspective, but you’ve got a world outside your window, too. Take care of it.

Turn up your speakers, go full screen, and lean back. Heck … this one even goes to 4K. Enjoy.

The Deepwater Horizon spill was arguably the worst and largest environmental disaster in American history, with 200 million gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. Four years later, the oil spill is not “over” and BP must take full responsibility for cleaning up the mess.Sign the petition to BP: #EarthDay



My dad gave our 2 month old English bulldog puppy a taste of strawberry Popsicle today. This is true happiness.

"I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at Christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when peole smile at me, when people are polite to me. There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful ; I have every reason in the world to be happy."

"Mass consumerism and the resulting degradation of our environment intrinsic to the process of making things to keep us happy and fulfilled frightens me. I no longer see my world as delineated by countries, with borders, or language, but as 7 billion humans living off a single, finite planet.” - Edward Burtynsky

Kiss the Earth, hug trees, smell flowers, walk barefoot, spend time in the grass. Give the Earth what she deserves.


Happy Earth Day! The stunning photos above show the Sacred Headwaters, a pristine area of protected land in a remote corner of northern British Columbia. The area is about the size of the entire state of Oregon, and only one tiny road winds through it. (For context, on the US mainland, the farthest you can get from a maintained road is about 20 miles. Oregon is 98,466 square miles.)
