If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, did it make a sound?
If Harrison Ford talks about the Ocean and no one is around to watch it, did it make a difference?
I want the answer to be yes: Yes vibrational patterns matter even if there are no human ears in range, and yes, Harrison Ford pretending to be the ocean will somehow, in someway, help raise our collective consciousness to care deeply about our environment and its sustenance.
So it is a good thing that Conservation International teamed up with eight A-list celebrities in order to give the natural ecosystems of the world a voice, in a new video series called Nature Is Speaking. Watch as these powerful voices narrate the dynamic workings of a variety of ecosystems, and explain the importance of their healthy existence. From Kevin Spacey (the rainforest), to Ed Norton (the soil), to Julia Roberts (Mother Nature)– these celebrities embody the natural habitats that they speak of and offer real educational insights into how these ecosystems work together to create the Earth as we know it.
I highly recommend looking through them, and then sending them to everyone you know. Remember: people need nature. And our nature, as we know it, will soon be gone.
The silence has gone on long enough: we need to start listening.
