SUNDAY READING: Environmental Melancholia

SUNDAY READING: Environmental Melancholia

The times are tough for those who care about the environment. After reading all the news I can´t help myself from feeling lost, terrified and unable to help. People seem not to care if it´s not happening in front of their home. Or maybe they just keep it to themselves. I hope it´s the second one. Because I really don´t understand how young families don´t care what world and conditions are their kids are gonna live in. Earth might become uninhabitable in their lifetime.

If you also have a case of climate anxiety right now, it´s important that we do something to help every day, never give up and try not to be too aggressive about it when talking to others (I know this one is hard). Because that approach never works (read the first article).

I don´t wanna ruin your day with my blog, but I guess if you are here, you care about this topic. I know it´s a lot easier to ignore all of it and not read about the sad reality of dying nature, endangered animals, oil spills, hurricanes, and floods. But I think we should be informed on the latest news and facts, so we can inform others too. Here are some interesting articles I read lately:
