Heat Wave On Lanzarote
Almost 50ºC (122ºF) that’s what the thermometers on Lanzarote measured last weekend. Even on our warm and sunny island we don’t feel such heat very often. Indeed I can’t remember such a hot day in the last ten years I have been here. The beaches in Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and even Famara on the West coast of Lanzarote where crowded. No wonder… the heat in the streets and the countryside during the day was insupportable. How fortunate we are to have the sea right in front of our doorsteps so one can refresh, having a dip in the cool, big pool.
No doubt, our climate is changing. We have to face it. Not only here, but all over the planet we can feel and see the consequences of our modern lifestyle. Wouldn’t it be nice if everybody would do their bit and help to stop Global Warming. Leave your car in the garage one day, recycle, try to buy local products… Everything counts.
Today I will provide you with a link to a movie called “Home”. It is about all of our home, about the planet we’re all living on and sharing. It is a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, who by the way is a great photographer too. Please take the time and watch it. It is about 1 hour long, so you had better have a good internet connection as well.
Last but not least, I would like to encourage you to participate in the discussion here. What do you do to combat Global Warming? Do you recycle at home or at work? Any suggestions or advice you would like to give to others?
