Also Minimalism can help you...  Preserving nature, animals and the world's ecology.

Do you remember Christmas and snowflakes? Snowmen in winter and frogs croaking in summer? Birds in spring and chanterelles in autumn? If you do, good for you. Hold on to those memories, because you will need them. Unless, of course, God Almighty intervenes and undoes what we have done.

2015 It was 1 degree Celsius on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day, it was 8 degrees Celsius. Celsius, not Kelvin. Also in 2015, it rained all summer and stayed around 15 degrees, rising to a dry heat of 38 degrees on one weekend, before subsiding to around 25 degrees two days later. I trust you remember that.

...Interesting, isn't it?

And that's not the last effect of climate change - temperatures have also disrupted bird hibernation and plant flowering (I saw kittens in bloom just before Christmas in December 2015). Already, everything to do with nature has changed - the growth of our food, air pollution levels, weird flooding in the middle of summers. And the changes are not going to stop.

Such toquelas.

I'm not trying to scare you, but the facts show that Lithuanian nature is already at least partially fucked up, and in the future, if we don't do anything about it, it will become so fucked up that our children will be looking at pictures and wondering what it was like to have winters in Kaunas 30 years ago with temperatures of -20 degrees.

...What can be done?

While ecology and caring for nature may be getting into the heads of some of the smarter Lithuanians, I admit it can be difficult. Especially if you don't tell them straight which products are green and which are not.

So the principles of simplicity avoids the "What to do if I get into trouble?" And instead, intervenes at the "Do you really need to harm nature?" step.

And that, I believe, is better. Especially if you don't want to leave your children and little grandchildren a brown, always rainy blob with an Acropolis in the middle that they will call Lithuania.

For nature,
