This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
I am going to propose something a bit outside of Bing's norm and I want to know your opinion as well. There are so many problems currently going on in our world which we need to finally give our fullest attention to. This is primarily because we are the root cause of these issues. Our planet and all of its inhabits, which includes us, are currently fighting for its survival, and we are doing nearly nothing to help. In fact, we are currently working towards our demise through our activities such as: our extreme population growth, overfishing our seas, polluting the environment, and much more. Yes, many of us know about greenhouse gas emissions and many of these other issues, but can you honestly say that you are doing anything to fix it? My bet is no. But, perhaps if you knew more about what we are doing to the magnificent world which we live in, you might see the world anew and change your ways. One drop can make ripples throughout the ocean, but it takes the entire ocean to turn those ripples into waves. So, I am proposing that Bing launch a so-called "awareness campaign" by making a change in their cover photos for a short time. Instead of their usual awe-inspiring images from around the world, Bing should help raise awareness by using images of issues that must be addressed, such as: long-line fishing bycatch, pollution spilling into the ocean, deforestation, and animals that we have pushed to the brink of extinction. That way, people will see the images, along with the various facts about them, thus educating us on what is happening and what must be done. I am asking this of Bing because of the constant quality of their photography and because of the sheer amount of people who visit the site everyday. I urge all of you to respond to this topic so that it can grow and eventually become noticed by those who have the ability to make this happen. Please, speak your thoughts, ideas, and additions to this proposal.
