1: Defend the Amazon
Can you imagine a world without the Amazon? Maybe you can, but it won’t exist! The Amazon rainforest not only is the home of countless wildlife species, but functions as a huge carbon sink. Its disappearance will have catastrophic effects on the Earth’s climate, ranging from a global rise in temperature to floods and sandstorms.
Say no to the disappearance of the Amazon and call on Rouseff, the president of Brazil, to protect the world’s most diverse rainforest. Click Here!
2: Support clean air protection
Living in Beijing, air pollution is one of our major health concerns. There are few days a year where the air quality is actually safe for us to breath unfiltered. Therefore, we really appreciate the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and their proposition to set carbon standards for power plants. We hope Beijing will follow by taking stronger measures. Unfortunately, however, big polluters are working to block EPA scientists from setting these new standards.

3: Stop the vicious cycle of hunger and poverty
On a daily basis tons of food is thrown away and wasted in restaurants, schools, office building canteens, and in markets. With this in mind, it is difficult to believe that still millions of people around the world are malnourished. With both obesity and hunger becoming bigger problems something has to be done to correct the unbalanced food market.
