“We’re here to show you the brighter side of climate change,” a female voice narrates over the video for Higher Tides Realty. Soothing piano music plays while images of melting snow, remote coastal landscapes and barren deserts fade in and out. Higher Realty says it aims to help homeowners and buyers find properties in areas set to increase in value due to rising temperatures and dramatic weather changes. There’s only one catch: The advertisement is fake.
It’s time to make some big changes for our planet. This Earth Day, April 22, more than 1 billion people in 196 countries will work together to address climate change and protect the earth for future generations.
The mission of Earth Day is to build a healthy and sustainable planet. Though Earth Day is celebrated globally on one specific day, it is much more than just a single day. It’s about giving a voice to emerging consciousness and channeling human energy towards environmental issues.
There are many easy ways to celebrate Earth Day throughout the year.
- Eat less mean
- Start a compost bin
- Recycle used electronics
- Stop using disposable plastics
- End junk mail
- Buy local produce and support farmers markets
If you are in Chicago, we invite you to celebrate Earth Day with us this Saturday as part of the Humboldt Park and Preserves Clean-Up. The Curmudgeon Group team will meet at the Humboldt Park Boathouse at 9am. Email email@example.com to join.
