Feel the lungs of Tel Aviv: Good example of climate change adaptation

The Paris summit is just going to finished now and countries in both groups, developing and developed nations are still blaming each other. But there are few countries still taking the issue of climate change seriously and working on that without blaming others. Israel is one of these countries, previous almost desert (impossible to imagine) thinks that the mitigation and adaptation are critical to address the climate change challenges. One of adaptation measure you can feel here at city of Tel Aviv-Yafo. Just need to come out from your home at morning and visit to parks and gardens here. Feel the environment there because you will exceptionally get such environment in cities of other countries. Here, I am suggesting you few gardens and parks in Tel Aviv and nearby areas.

The sunlight in these winter mornings make everything shining in the little foggy air and little smelly soil here at Tel Aviv gardens; always welcome you to keep out all your stress and tension on your mind. The quite, cool environment only breaks by chirping of birds, buzzing of bees and insects with humble laughing of cheerful senior citizens and innocent children.
