Earth Rangers

The information I found researching my super post revealed many disturbing situations that are more common than I thought. I didn’t realize that an entire population could lose electricity after a natural disaster. It was also very impressive to see so many people come together to help out people in need. The events described in the super post lead me to search for organizations that deal with the environment and how to protect it because if the population of earth keeps multiplying and consuming at the rate we are, we are doomed for disaster and hurricanes will only grow in strength.
