    Absolutely love that we need everyone to come together and wake up look and see how amazing this planet can be with our help

    • Honey….be the first to dump your SUV. Get that bike out.

    • We can’t stay on this earth infinitum. We will need to speculate to accumulate. Anything else is suicide.

    • @david hunt So you are going off the grid? Selling your SUV? Growing your own food? Making your own clothes? Treating your own diseases? Of course you will be doing all of those things…and will forego mindless platitudes on social media. You can throw out your phone too….there ya go.

      Check out the Claim the Sky initiative, they have a good solution for cleaning up our sky.

    • @good ancestors the common folk deceive themselves in the generalities and become undone by the particulars.

  6. But I thought air pollution was a hoax? What’s next? The Earth isn’t flat?

    • @Kitt Songstad In the Niagara Peninsula, you can live in the shadow of a factory, the sun setting over an hour later where your house is, or you can live in the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment, a big difference in weather and forests. Going through NIagara Falls, when there literally isn’t anyone else around, by the Falls or Clifton Hill, is a strange feeling. Too bad I can’t show you a video.

      @John Watt there’s probably a portal there 🙂

    • @Kitt Songstad That’s a very happy thought. I did about ten artworks trying to catch it, and sold two. If I didn’t grow up trying to paint Niagara Falls I wouldn’t have tried. You say portal, but like most non-white natives, I see the electricity and magnetism of my brain as leaving the flesh, disappearing into eternity. I say non-white as being a Son of the Gael, or native Scottish ancestry. I also am Clan Watt. There used to be organic electricity, the energy of the sun, earth and our brains. If you are using that there is a chance you might blend with your environment. Call that a portal if you will, it’s not approaching the universe with a weaponized and polluting sub-version.

    • Nobody said it was a hoax. People who live in LA have 2 pound boogers.

    We’ve had kangaroos hoping around the city CBD in Adelaide South Australia. It’s great.

    Electrifying story start of a new day,maybe we can stop this madness and vote this administration out of office. Bring back air quality and water quality back from big business, Trump deregulated the clean water act and clean air act.

      That is a beautiful sight to behold ,if it could only stay that way one can only dream.

    • America cannot stop pollution around the world, so no matter what administration in in office that will not change. Our restrictions have no affect on other countries. We do not need more regulation. We do not need Government to control everything. The open market will produce if there is a demand. Regulation is why companies have been forced to China and now we cannot even produce our own medication. Look at the big picture.

      We need to vote the rich out of office. And stop hating our own countrymen. On both sides.

    The one big positive from corona lockdown in India. Rivers are cleaner and air is pure. Birds have returned. Surprising that Indian govt spent billions to clean rivers and 1 week of lockdown itself water quality improved drastically. This means industries are polluting environment.

    • Ari Valdes Palmer | April 24, 2020 at 12:00 AM | Reply

      Deekshant Belwal yes! Write more

    • @Deekshant Belwal, i also saw something posted online that for the first time a generation Indians can actually see the Himalayas, dont know if that is true though. However if it is, maybe this could be a spark to get world governments to talk climate change seriously and do something about it.

    We cannot go back. We have to recontract all our social relationships and our relationship with the planet. We have to change radically!

    Mother nature tries to tell the humans to stop and decides to take drastic measures

  13. The planet doesn’t need us, look how happy it is with us even partially out of the picture.

  14. David Harrison | April 23, 2020 at 11:20 PM | Reply

    I’ll say it again… Maybe WE are the virus and Covid-19 is the vaccine.

  15. This pandemic is actually good for the earth. This shows how our world would be without all this pollution. We should work more on cleaner solutions after this covid 19 virus is taken care of.

  16. This is short of a miracle. This was inconceivable several months ago. Someone must have helped that young environmental activist from Sweden.

      Arman D , thank you Greta !for trying to show the stupid people of the world ,how much humans affect environmental Outcome, have in the world!But it took a pandemic !,to really make people believe that this was happening! Thank you so much for trying to help us. Some of us believed you! But a lot of people did not!Not until now! Mother nature can heal herself, without the help of mankind trying to pretend to protect it!

      @Kathy Franklund yes we will just have starve billions to save clean air full of covid.

      Larry Stevenson , OK so explain to me how every other country ,can keep their people fed ,and not lose their housing, or their medical insurance ! When we are the so-called richest Country in the world! Can you explain that to me. Not just comments but give me proof

    Proof the planet would be better off without us. ‘Mother nature’ probably considers US the virus.

    • Why do you think we are on this planet? Do you think it was by accident or evolution?

    • KAMILA REEDER | April 24, 2020 at 2:39 PM | Reply

      @Ciara true, but like active, large scale maintenance and care of the natural world is an applicable example. Like more than just a few park rangers working. That’s what I was trying to say, and like idk his nihilism makes me sad. I wasn’t tryna solve climate change lol, just wanted to cheer up Richard.

    • So now…as a leftist….you are advocating forced extinction of mankind?

    • and…?

    • God put us on this earth. Nature has nothing to do with our existence and purpose.

  18. I’m rooting for mother earth.

  19. Is mother nature tying to tell us something? Too bad mankind is too stupid to get the hint.

  20. Because humans are this world’s pandemic.

    • We take everything for granted. The delicate balance of the Earth’s environment to support all the life present on it, the resources that would last eons along with moderate use, replenishment efforts, and developing semiperpetual energy production as we evolve, and the connection we have in mutual survivability with all life on this planet all taken for granted. Because you have been made mortal, self interest is paramount above all other things, even that natural mechanism which absolutely exists in the back of your conscious that tells us we needed the Creator. Not only that, but in human ambition, malicious intent to fulfill immoral desires, blatant disregard for human life, hate and cruelty the Earth has been saturated with blood. Even the land itself has to pay for our sins. We have rightly and aptly been described as a virus to this planet but in truth the virus itself is sin and death itself is the cure. Believe whatsoever you wish, but the decree of the One whose words never return to him without the intended results has also said that He is making mankind as rare on the surface of the ground as refined gold and precious stones. Let the righteous one be righteous still. Let the wicked one be wicked still. We are ALL reaping the reward of the things we sow as sure as the Earth spins on it’s axis. The cure for this planet is already being administered. It’s only a matter of time now.

    • @VOTUS US Yes it will.

    • convert every thing on electricity and ban patroliam and coal world will be cleaner and pollution free. plant more trees.

    • Not to Korea 🇰🇷.

      @myko freder and yet 90% of the world’s pollution is done by the top 20%…meaning the rich countries.Those are the ones to be reduced by 2/3rds.
