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

in #self-power4 years ago (edited)

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!

This is indeed an amazing topic. This is quite an engaging theme that could be used to solve a real life problem. I missed the first edition of the contest and hopefully won't miss this.

Thank you @upmewhale for sponsoring this epic writing. I expect this to come on a more frequent basis.

I hope to see Upmewhale Life/Solution Magazine soonest.

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.

Mi post

A great initiative that addresses a current global issue that is more worrying every day. Thank you team @upmewhale for these spaces. Get ready to participate.

Good enough to detox all the pain.

A nice pick on the contest theme guys, this definitely would yield some great written pieces with interesting opinions regarding much talked about issues which are felt being less talked about to some extent.

Thanks for bringing this up sir :)
I'm in !

Thanks @upmewhale for this.👏👏👏👏

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 enseñanza 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 pondré a trabajar sobre mi participación. Gracias por la convocatoria.

Thank you friend @upmewhale for bringing these kinds of issues of global importance. I am not fluent in English, so I am allowed to rely on a translator. I want to participate.
A hug.

Thabks upmewhale for this contest
