Hello from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, we have arrived. 🙂 We will soon store our car and trailer for the winter season until next spring, when we will return home to Victoria BC via California! We have now done 24,000km/15,000mi in our electric car pulling a camping trailer, promoting sustainable energy and transportation along the way, and will take a little winter break.
Before that, I’d like to share some important information with you:
On October 30, the National Geographic Documentary “Before the Flood” will air on the National Geographic Channel worldwide, in 171 countries and 45 languages. It will also be available for viewing free of charge on many online platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and more .
Please find the movie’s trailer here and the links to the online platforms here.
“Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.”
We, Rolf and I, believe it is important for EVERYBODY on this planet to watch this documentary, because ALL OF US are needed to ensure that this planet remains livable for future generations.
In this regard, I hope that especially parents and grandparents will take the time to watch it, since it’s about their children’s and grandchildren’s future.
“We need everyone to demand bold action from their political leaders and to elect representatives who have their best interests at heart, not the interests of corporations to perpetuate a cycle of greed and destruction,” says DiCaprio. “This documentary shows how interconnected the fate of all humanity is — but also the power we all possess as individuals to build a better future for our planet.”
Please share with people you know. This concerns us all. We need to act NOW.
Thank you, Rolf & Silke.
