My first Message to ATS, a question. Why is it that governments, big business, and the wealthy want to destroy all of this beauty? Are they jealous that they can not have complete control over this? Other than that I loved the videos, brought a tear to my eyes.

I don't want to leave,
I just want to teleport where I want to go.

I love Earth, don't get me wrong. I think it was specially designed for us. However, if I were given a chance to explore the galaxy, I would. I've been here long enough and have got my fair fill of cultures... I want to see the stars!

Great video by the way!

S & F

Thank you for that poignant reminder.

The saddest story is that so many of the people on this earth fail to realize the beauty that is all around them, and therfore aren't a part of it.

Films like that help to open our eyes!

i have reason to believe a massive percent of other planets are in no way suitable for human life.

Hello! I enjoyed your video. I think I made a bad opinion of you earlier in the year on some past topic downing
all Americans.Then later I felt really bad for you when your cat passed. I hope things are better for you now. Christmas time is great time of year to adopt an Earth cat from the animal shelter. I am sorry I made a quick
judgement over your opinions. I hope your Holidays are Joyous! Know that people on ATS do care.

unfortunately, if you were actually at any of these places you'd die within 3 days of dehydration, hypothermia, heat exhaustion and starvation.

Every time I see one of those nice discovery channel commercials about our planet (like the one that's been in my sig for over a year), I appreciate our planet more.

But that's just the nature part.

Paintings are beautiful too.. but maybe the person who painted it was 'evil'?

If our planet wasn't being run the way it is today, I would love to live here. Otherwise...... I'm boarding the next UFO

Thank you for posting the beautiful video, I loved seeing Niagara Falls, I have visited there ten times over the years and it never ceases to amaze me, going on the Maid of the Mist is something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime.

Sure we have a nice planet, but why have all our eggs in one basket?
There are plently of other astonishing worlds, with beauty yet untold.
Natural beauty is everywhere we wish to look just its a little futher away but worth the trip.

With todays technology to get to a solar system 20 light years away, it would take 60-80 years if they were lucky. But it says it can be done, which means we must expand our understanding. I love this planet too but sometimes you just gotta leave home and explore.

when it kinda hit me, have the government intentionally put a bad spin on all environmentalism and ecologist just like they have with UFO's so that when it is mentioned you are ridiculed?

They don't have to. Serious environmentalism requires a great deal of commitment to changing our lifestyle and approach to industry. To quote John Kenneth Galbraith,

"Faced with the choice of changing one's mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof."

There are certainly government officials who're anti-environmentalism, but any propaganda to that effect is superfluous; the public manages that quite sufficiently itself.

The problem is we are a type 0 civilization and no one out there would want us...we have messed up things enough here.

Great post

As much as I would like to explore the cosmos and experience as many different environments and planets as possible... only 1 will ever remain my home- the one place I will always think of as being the most beautiful and treasurable of them all-

My Earth

If planetary travel ever comes about, I will certainly want to check out other planets.

Don't get me wrong. I love this planet but there has to be more life out there to explore.

Doah! - This is what I get when I reply to the OP before going through the thread. Double post so my bad.

Anything looks peaceful when there are not 6 billion people interfering with it lol.

To go along with your theme though:

The world is just awesome.

Earth always looks beautiful when you minus the people. ;-) Pretty vid though, thanks. I wouldn't want to leave myself if people knew what they were doing or could look past the "how can this benefit me" viewpoint.

I believe that is the root of many problems, the fact that people just haven't travelled.

Think about it, most of us spend all of our lives in one area..our childhood may or may not be from the area we now live in and we may well retire in a different place but that is the sum of it, 3 locations on average.

If we didn't have half the borders in this world, promoted open trade and travel I am sure you wouldn't have half the prejudicial and bigoted views you have now.

People would get a chance to get out there, see the world for what it is.

There is an enormous amount of beauty in this world, however.

The idea of going to another planet, seeing new animals, new plants, new landscapes and exploring it is so incredible that yes i would leave Earth if given the option. In modern times there really is very little exploring left to do, which is a great shame.

People use to respect nature at one point. We need to get back to respecting nature, even with all our technology. Our current technology is pretty lame in my opinion and is totally not worth destroying our beautiful planet.
