The Corner

Nature communicates with us with its own language. It doesn’t communicate with us in our language but in signs that we humans take for granted. The photo (taken in the limits of Ħaz Zebbuġ), shows a picture of the ruins of a room in a field after being destroyed by natural forces. By looking at this photo I could see a corner (that was once part of the room) that means that nature is telling us to bring an end to more destruction to our environment. One way is by controlling the amount of buildings being built. The message is clear – if we try to destroy nature, it will destroy us back. As you can see in the photo, the only standing part is a derelict corner which is slowly being crept over by wild plants.

Is this the new cat’s home?

Wied Blandun is situated between Fgura and Paola. It is abandoned and nobody cleans it up. There are lot of dirty stuff, like this cupboard and there are a lot of other things like shoes thrown away in the grass. This cupboard is now used as a home for the cats that live outside the streets. It would be nice if somebody would take care of this and for example instead plant some trees. The Local Council can do this. If somebody took action it would be a more beautiful place and people will visit it more often and finally it will be renovated from this thrash that make it unsuitable for people to walk in this small valley’s passages.

Brighter Sustainability Effort

The massive cardboard structures painted in an explosion of screaming colours were giving a spectacular show on the Granaries of Floriana. The carnival floats obey the three rules:RECYCLE, REUSE, REDUCE because they use a lot of recycled material.The floats are made by wood,paper,iron,newspapers and cardboard.When the five-day festival is over they break the float and take the material that can be recycled.Then the participants start working to produce another elaborate float for next year. These brightly coloured floats dominate the local scenery during Carnival, whilst sending out one of the most important messages to public- that of sustainability since most of these floats are made from recycled materials. These floats are giving an example that recyling is useful and we can be creative and come up with innovative ideas from materials that otherwise end up piling our already massive landfills.

Hidden Energy

Humans look at things in different perspectives: some would say that the photo above is beautiful, some would focus on the large wave and say that it simply shows a rough bay but we are missing the positive aspect that really concerns us. The photo (taken at Saint Julian’s) shows a very small and beautiful bay that is covered with large and colorful pebbles. All moving man-made objects rely on energy but the thing is that the energy used may harm us and our environment. An example is fossil fuels that are used too often and in a very large amounts. We are currently running out of fossil fuels and we have to start using other sources of energy. One alternative source of energy is that generated from natural forces such as waves. Wave power can be used to turn turbines to generate electricity!

The River of Truth

Wied il-Qlejgħa, or more commonly known as Chadwick Lakes is a place many Maltese are familiar with. Although it is not really a lake, but a valley, Chadwick Lakes still has more or less the same beauty of a lake, with an exception of streams, reservoirs and farmland. The streams one can find at Wied il-Qlejgħa consist of clear, fresh, filtered water. Unfortunately, some people who visit this valley are not touched by its beauty, and pollute the land to suit their liking. Other visitors illegally catch frogs, cut uncommon flowers and plants, and some others even capture insects and other animals to keep in captivity. Disgracefully, hunters only visit to hunt rare birds that rest during migration. Still, the Maltese people can’t admit that there are still people that disturb both the peace of the place and distort the course of nature. This is the River of Truth…
