It is very sad to see what is happening to our planet Earth.
The glacial ice is melting in the Alps, Greenland, the Himalayas and in other parts of the world.
James Balog, an environmental photographer spent more than six years taking photographs to document the vanishing glaciers.
But do we care?
We have to do our part to take good care of our planet because it is our responsibilities to do so.
Belarus, Ukraine and Russia mark the 25th anniversary of the nuclear reactor explosion in Chernobyl on April 26.
This is the world’s worst nuclear accident and classified as a level 7.
It happened on April 26, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine).
Large quantities of radioactive contamination was released into the atmosphere that spread over much of the Western Russia and Europe.
Now we are facing another level 7 nuclear disaster – the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster.
(Please >>>click here<<< to read my post on Fukushima Daiichi disaster.)
I think that nuclear power is efficient but very, very, very dangerous.
These photos show before and after view of Pripyat, a beautiful city that had to be abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

These are the photos of the ghost city of Prypiat.
The city was abandoned since 25 years ago because of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident on April 26, 1986.
The city used to be very nice and beautiful but now it looks so sad, ugly and scary.
I think that we should stop building new nuclear power plant because it can be very, very dangerous.
Nuclear power plant can cause dangerous nuclear radiation if a disaster happen and a big area has to be abandoned for a long, long time.
The book was about the effect of global warming that can make some places disappear.
Global warming makes the earth hotter and hotter and sea level rises up because of ice melting at the North Pole and South Pole.
In Zahara de la Sierra, Andalusia, Spain, they get less and less rain and the place becomes drier and slowly turning into a desert; like bad drought in Kenya were killing plants and animals.
I think that it is a very good book for all of us to read, so that we can do our parts to stop the global warming and heal the world.
It will very sad to see all the beautiful places disappear.
I wish I can have a copy of ‘100 Places to Go Before They Disappear’ 🙂
Mudslide happens when too much water turn the earth into mud and push the mud down a hillside.
Mudslide always happens when people cut down trees and plants on hills because:
The root of the trees can hold the soil on the hills; so when people cut down the trees, there will be nothing to hold the soil during heavy rain.
- The roots of the trees drink the water from the ground to help the trees grow, so there will not be too much water under the ground.
- Animals living around the trees can help drinking the water too, and the earthworms’ tunnel can help the water to travel deep into the ground.
If we do not cut down the trees to build houses on the hillside, the mudslide will not be too powerful.
