Global Forever

Earth Day is almost always synonymous with global warming for me.

USA's Global Forever
Issued 28 January 2013
Artist: Leonello Calvatti

I know, that sounds like a bit narrow-minded thinking.
But I am always bugged by the idea of the thinning ice in the polar regions.

Glaciers in Iceland
Issued 24 May 2007

My thoughts are with the struggles of the animals 
in the polar regions and their survival.

Fauna of Sakha Republic (Yakutia) - Russia

Wildlife in Norway - Arctic Fox

Iceland - Seals I

I hope we can all be vigilant in showing love to our Mother Earth
so that these polar fauna never lose their habitat and end up extinct.

  1. Thanks for your comment on my profile. I had just added your blog to my list of blogs to visit on my sidebar and the next thing that happened was i got that comment! It's obviously a mutual appreciation.
    Kind regards,

  2. A great selection of stamps for the theme. Yes, it is always so upsetting when you see on tv how the animals in those regions are suffering.

  3. I have never really though of seals as cute, but these images may change my mind.

  4. Love that fluffy Arctic Fox, you have certainly got a nice selection of Arctic fauna.

  5. I don't think equating earth day with global warming is narrow at all. Controlling climate change entails just about every aspect of our interaction with the earth.

  6. You did a nice selection. I've got twice or more times the last stamp, the heart-shaped Earth, but I still love it. And also the new "forever" in the USA. I read in some blogs people from the USA don't like it, but I don't understand why. It's beautiful!

  7. I do like the Arctic Fox stamp. You have showed us a wonderful series. Global warming is supposed to affectt he the Arctic regions more than other parts of the world.

  8. this is a very nice way to present the issue, and i must say i also love the round global stamp

  9. So many beautiful stamps!
    Keep smiling and Keep Shinning!
