“Earth Protection is Scientists’ Job”

I hear these comments a lot – earth conservation is unrelated to high school students; it’s an ambitious goal for “common” people to do. At a certain degree, yes, politicians and scientists usually make those striking progress in Earth preservation such as “Clean Power Plan” or “New alternative clean fuel,” but eventually the majority makes these policies and products successful instead of that 5% of the population; the ultimate determination still lays in “common” people’s hands.

We Need Suggestions

We got some more updates in Testimony, Research and Collection sections, remember to check them out!

Would you suggest to keep it this way or publish everything on the homepage and categorize them under other section tabs?

I hope his words can bring more people into environmental conservation. (Although Some people are skeptical to the authenticity (a few sources state it’s an undocumented speech), I think what matter are the words and ideas in this letter instead of whether Chief Seattle really said this or not).
