Upmewhale Writing Contest! Global Warming and Climate Change, What Can Be Done?

Hello Steemians! And welcome to the second writing contest hosted by @upmewhale to incentivize the creation of quality content in the spirit of #NewSteem

TOPIC: Climate Change/Global Warming.

In this @upmewhale contest we intend to encourage Steem authors to share their points of view on the topic and to create an authentic, sincere debate about the issue. Yes, we know this topic is highly controversial but it's also a very interesting, complex and nuanced issue that we would like to see the community address in the context of a healthy debate.

Some cues to get you started:

  • What is climate change?
  • What does it mean to you? How does it impact you and your community?
  • To what degree is it an instrument of certain political agendas?
  • How can we manage/solve it? Share your ideas.
  • What theories and data do you believe and which not? Why?
  • What are the main technologies and countries responsible for it?

In order for your entry to be considered, please write at least 500 words accompanied by at least one image. We want users to create a meaningful original content and engage with other users in the comments. The best comments will receive some tips from us.


  • Your entry has to be written in English, with a minimum of 500 words.
  • Only one (1) entry per user is allowed.
  • The post must be of the highest quality and free from plagiarism.
  • You can use text, ideas and/or images that are not your own, but you have to put the source(s) right next to it/them.
  • You must use the tag #self-power as the FIRST tag (mandatory). Also, try to use other tags related to this contest, such as #climate-change, #warming, ...

This contest will be active for "15 days" starting today 26 Jan, 2020 and will be closing on 23:59 UTC February 9th.


Quality posts will be rewarded with high upvotes according to their effort and the originality of the content.

Good luck and God Speed. Let the games begin!


Author rewards beneficiary to @steem.dao is "50%" and 50 % to @null

What would happen if the bonds had been directed to the ecological projects that make life in Steemit?

I have noticed that in this social network very little they support the ideas and activities of us environmentalists; even so I will participate in the contest.

Sowing a tree you support our cause.

Saludos amigos @upmewhale les expreso mi complacencia al poder encontrarme con esta convocatoria, la cual me parece excelente al querer llamar a la comunidad steemiana a laborar contenidos que realmente ofrezcan un aporte valioso a todos los que hacen vida en esta plataforma, con contenido proactivo que deje una ense帽anza y valores en beneficio de todos los que poblamos el planeta tierra, que muchas veces ignoramos sin darnos cuenta que es nuestra casa y como tal, debemos cuidarla y honrarla. El tema me parece excelente, donde hay mucha tela que cortar, me sumo a la iniciativa amigos, y desde ya me pondr茅 a trabajar sobre mi participaci贸n. Gracias por la convocatoria.

Thank you so much for arranging the present time by beautifully arranging the post.

27.01.2020 20:36

Why would you write about a hoax?

27.01.2020 21:49

To hopefully get some sense to those who are still buying into the hoax. And for teh uvotez :-P

31.01.2020 16:27

Honestly it would just be sad if most Steemians view this topic as "controversial"...

Sure, with regards to the extent governments can justify increased taxation on behaviours and consumption that contributes to pollution and/or use tax-payer dollars to subsidise green-energy solution is up for debate and I'm sure the large number of people here who prefer a small government have strong opinion on that. But as for whether or not climate change exists and that humans contributes to it, there really is no debate. You either understand the evidence for it or you don't.

28.01.2020 00:00

As铆 es amigo tienes toda la raz贸n, es un tema de salud p煤blica urgente, de emergencia planetaria, en la que urge despertar la conciencia de amor y protecci贸n hacia nuestra casa galactica que est谩 a punto de colapsar. Los gobiernos del mundo, s贸lo muestran un teatro donde aparentan preocupaci贸n, cuando en realidad gastan millones y millones en armas y en crear virus para sembrar el terror y el p谩nico en la sociedad dormida que les sigue el juego sin darse cuenta. Se entiende perfectamente lo que quieres expresar.

30.01.2020 01:42

What makes it controversial snd this is from my perspective of course is the fact that for s lot of us in less deceloped societies, it really isn't evident. There's literslly no effect or change in our climate.

30.01.2020 14:38

What is sad is that so many people blindly accept what they're told by governments, corporate media, and celebrities... all of whom those same people will usually agree are highly dishonest and not to be trusted when it comes to any variety of other topics.

A few key points:

  • Carbon Dioxide is necessary for life, is not a pollutant by any accepted definition of the word, and stayed quite stable through many drastic climate changes in the Earth's history.
  • The US military is the largest polluter on the planet.
  • Every single claim made by climate alarmists has proven false, usually drastically so.
  • Maurice Strong, The Rockefellers, and the others who started the lie of "climate change" are widely known as totalitarian eugenecists. The reason CO2 is focused on is because that means every human is the problem
  • Solar cycles have a huge effect on Earth's climate, and yet are left out completely by alarmists.
  • Even if we accepted the "problem" as laid out by alarmists, it is quite obvious that the solution would involve shutting down governments, ending the practice of shipping goods worldwide (Amazon & Walmart alone pollute more than ALL the "citizens" of the world)
30.01.2020 19:09

Hello friend, thank you for bringing these initiatives to the platform. They help us understand that doing activities that help the system is not a one-day event.

I went overboard with the images but I was too inspired... Thank you very much


28.01.2020 00:26

An excellent initiative that is open to users who like to contribute ideas for a problem that we are currently addressing such as global warming and climate change, thanks to @upmewhale for this contest, this is my entry to the contest: https://goldvoice.club/steem/@carlos84/global-warming-and-climate-change-what-can-we-do-upmewhale-writing-contest

Climate change is a significant factor which the Rolf has neglected over the years. Australia has suffered more from its consequences than any other countries in the world. We hope the world will embrace green energy initiatives in order to appease the gods of the solar system/layer above us

The problem of these promotions is that one has already published on the subject, and has received few votes, it is only necessary that a whale is interested in the subject to receive rewards, people are interested in important topics by fashion.

I do not know how to get back up here in steemit I did power down since in my family no one worked and with that we could stay for 4 weeks . Today I come to ask you for help and I will receive anyone. Maybe a week-long delegation where I will be able to position myself and continue helping through this platform that I even considered a job. Please, I ask you. I wait your answer

I'm sure you realize, the people you send up-votes to, only get "HALF" of what you send them... When they send you Steem for an up-vote, you get that entire amount, plus half of the up-vote you give them... You're a big winner and they are a big loser... I saw what you just did to a person who sent you over 20 SBD and you only up-voted them about $3.00 and something... If that's not a Rip Off, I don't know what is... I sent you 10 Steem and only got back $3.00... I lost Steem, you Gained... How about making up the Difference...???
