The Eco-Centric

This is the transcript for the clip I posted on Youtube. To day I want to talk about the Eco-Centric. The Eco-Centric is a statue I created. With it I try to visualize the state of our culture. And it ain’t a nice picture. Humanity has come a long way since our beginnings. Not so long ago, only some thousand years, we were seeking shelter in caves to protect us from nature.* We were vulnerable, but we survived. And where are we now? Now nature has to be protected from us human...

Kids of the World

Today I want to introduce a new category in this website. It is called Kids of the World. I don’t think that the children of today are heard, what they think about the ecological situation. The young people must be given a platform where they can express their feelings, after all its their future! Our guest author today is Ana-Maria Anghel from Bukarest/Rumania. Ana is 15 years old and attending school. She wants to become a lawyer and writer. The opinion expressed in this article is...

Climate Change is the result of Global Warming. The question asked by Ms. Carabini, bears witness to the confusion...

Glenn Beck and Global Warming

Glenn Beck, it seems, is a controversial figure. I do not know much about him, since I am not an American and I am not too keen on television anyway. While researching on the Internet for a new post, I came across an interesting video of Mr. Beck interviewing John Coleman, the founder of a weather channel on TV. Mr Coleman states, that the Climate Change is the greatest scam in the whole of history. In the beginning of his show Glenn Beck introduces his new book,  An Inconvenient Book...

Paul McCartney and the Climate Change

Paul McCartney and the Climate Change

Sir Paul McCartney compares the deniers of Global Warming to the deniers of the Holocaust, so it was reported by the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz on the 29.06.2010. Is this comparison appropriate? It all depends on the historical perspective. If a staunch Anti-Fascist, after reading Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, would have warned of the dangers of a future Holocaust, no one would have believed it. It would have seemed too fantastic! Morally humanity is faced today with the same dilemma. The...
