National Geographic: Atmospheres

Atmosphere Earth Science

What a wonderful world.. it was?

National Geographic is a place where we can relax our eyes enjoying all the beauty of our world. From sea to space we will always be amazed and surprised by nature but it's sad that some of those images can become a part of the past because of human behavior. A big number of animals and plants have already disappeared and a huge number is at risk.

I hope you enjoy all the beauty of these images and videos but, please, don’t forget that our living planet is sick and we are all needed to help.

The Best George Carlin Environmental Quotes

"The planet is fine. The people are fucked."

1."If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?"

2. "Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong."

"The future will soon be a thing of the past." 

3. "Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain's majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea."

4. "Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning."

5. "That's all your house is: a place to keep your stuff... Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house. Why? No room for your stuff anymore."

6. "Kilometers are shorter than miles. Save gas, take your next trip in kilometers."

7. "The planet isn't going anywhere. WE ARE! Pack your shit, folks. We're goin' away."

8. "Is a vegetarian permitted to eat animal crackers?"

9. "I have nothing against the planet per se. I root for the big comet or asteroid as a way of cleansing the planet. The comet or asteroid 65 million years ago is probably what gave us our opening to replace the reptiles."
