Greanwold contributed to Wikipedia

I can’t say enough how grateful I am to you and the millions of people who give what they can to support Wikipedia. You are part of a select group of knowledge seekers giving back to the knowledge ecosystem, and your contributions are truly incredible. Thank you for your support. Thank you for coming to Wikipedia when you want to learn. We couldn’t do this without you and the millions of others who give just enough to keep Wikipedia vibrant, fresh, useful—and entirely free of ads. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Wikipedia exists because people give of themselves through thousands of individual actions. Each edit, donation, and upload is a gift that someone has given the world. And I always anxiously await this time of year, when one of the best gifts of all comes to us: the photos from the Wiki Loves Earth photo contest. 

We invite you to open our gift to you. Discover secrets of our natural world found on Wikimedia Commons. Explore the top 15 photos of 2018, taken, shared, and selected by Wikimedia volunteers.

I am really tired of hearing news reports and interviews on "saving the planet". It's not the planet that has to be saved. It is saving humanity from itself. The planet will continue to "survive", long after humans have wiped themselves out. There is another 5 billion years ahead of this planet before it is consumed by a dying star, the sun. 

We humans are a squabbling, quarrelsome bunch, many who are religious fundamentalists of some religion or belief who for the most part have undying faith in some invisible man who lives in the sky  swooping down one day to save all those who believe. I should mention at this point there are now an estimated 4,400 religions existing in the world today and god knows how many sub-sects. Does this mean there are 4,400 gods?

The big bugaboo today is plastic! It is not a "fake" scare such as Y2K. It is stifling this planet and being consumed by the very  sea-life and land animals we consume. Ergo, humans are consuming plastic in ever increasing amounts. The Great Lakes are now fully polluted with micro plastic balls. There is 18 BILLION pounds of plastic thrown into the oceans each year.  Glaciers all over the world are retreating with a dire recent warning that Canadian glaciers will have disappeared in another 50 years. Rising oceans?  Watch out all you people who live near coastlines.

So, saving the planet!  The earth has been here for an estimated 4 billion years. Homo sapiens have been around for about 200,000 years. Neanderthals, who died out around 35,000 years ago where around for about 350,000 years. What are the chances of our species lasting that long? As long as we have wars, religious conflict, greed, power struggles, unchecked pollution and destruction of our forests and oceans. NOT THAT DAMN LONG!

The inhabitants of earth are drowning in plastic. This, according to a new report carried out by National Geographic. What is the future on this planet for the children of today if the oceans become poisoned?

Greanwold's World is for Kids and Families

Greanwold’s World, a global Internet website for 5 – 11 year old children, is a new entrant in the $700 + Billion Dollar “kiddy” market. Initially the Greanwold brand will be marketed in all English speaking countries including India and also China, and is designed to make a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of children around the globe via the Internet, with fun, excitement, intelligence, magic and a touch of social responsibility. 

The latter is accomplished with a school fund raising program; Greanwold’s Run for your Life Campaign and a children’s charity, The Greanwold Foundation for Kids Worldwide as well as a package of mesmerizing new video games and “apps’, some with an environmental and  “green world” message. 

Greanwold’s mission? Encourage parents and kids who-have, to help parents and kids world-wide who have-not.
