Below is a selection of photographs showing fragile environments affected by our decisions as a country and world.

We choose greed so we can take more vacations in the mountains.

We go to the mountains we are ruining with our greed.

We say the mountains are beautiful.

Obviously not beautiful enough.

Please fight for change. Please fight for our home. None of us want to face the day we must explain to our grandchildren that we chose to be selfish instead of being proactive.

This is not a political statement. I am simply asking nicely to remember that we’ve only got one chance to live. None of us are perfect. Not you, not me, not your sister, not your dog. We cannot say we fight for life, for our future families, but not fight for the air they will need to breathe or the water they will need to drink.

Because in the end if we don’t protect this nothing will matter. Not your right to vote. Not your right to bear arms. Not your right to choose life. There will be no life. No fight.

Iceland, budget adventure, glacier, wanderlust

    Wow. I have spent a lot of time viewing photos of beautiful natural places, but there are some photos I’ve never seen, like the upside-down island with a little forest on top. This is amazing!
