Hi tiki thanks for all the great info
on your website, from Mark (February 2012)
Mark: I'm very pleased you
find my website helpful!
i think that this website is very
good. I 100% agree with you. I
was thinking the world should try
and be like Cuba, once they had no
more oil they became sustainable
and are much more happier than they
were with oil and no sustainability.
People should be encouraged to grow
they're own organic food. There is
hardly any community spirit anymore
either which needs
to be improved on and the modern
human being lives revolve entirely
around money and materialism instead
of nature and happiness together
with they're family and friends.
I wish everybody would use energy
from the sun and wind which is free
and eco friendly rather then using
oil, coal and nuclear power which
is extremly dangerous for the earth
and to humans. I feel ashamed to
be living in such a greedy world. Thank
you for making such a good and helpful
website. I will definelty encourage
my friends and family to look at
this website. Theresia (January 2012)
Hello: Thank you for your kind remarks
about my website. Yes, in many ways
Cuba has set a good example to the
world, particularly for urban farms.
And, yes, I agree with what you say
in the rest of your email. It's good
to know that there are people like
you who see the problems and want
to make a difference.
I’ve just come across your website
and, although an adult – well in
years anyway, I think it’s brilliant.
Lynn (January 2012)
Dear Lynn: Thank you for your kind remarks
about Tiki's website.

I love you tiki and jesus, please put
the lord in your website Love

please reply (January 2012
Dear Jowwy: Here I am, replying! I'm
very pleased you love my website.
Sorry, but my website isn't religious
since it's for all kids, whatever
their religion or otherwise. Congratulations
on being 10!
Hi Tiki: I am so happy that you have
this site its the BEST! I've been stuck
on some homework and your website has
helped me so much! All the other ones
were so complicated! Thank you! Cimmie
replied to Cimmie (see below right)
who then added:Do you
know how pollution affects people in
our local area? Are the solutions the
same for around the world?
They are all my questions! I replied to her
questions, of course, and then Cimmie
said 'Thank you so much your the best!'
Nice to know that!
Cimmie: I was very happy to have your
message. It's very nice to know that
my website is helpful to you. Thank
you for writing!
I am working on a science project. Your site
has really helped but I need to reference
it. I am currently taking chemistry and we
are to use APA referencing. I need a name
and a date to use in the reference. Can you
help me? Alexa (January 2012)
website is constantly changing. It
started about 14 years ago and has
got bigger ever since as more material
was added. Since I don't know what
it is you particularly want to reference,
all I can suggest is the usual practice
of adding the URLs of the pages you
used. I'm very pleased the
site has been of help to you!
Love your site and the accessibility for
children. I have a site on climate change, ClimateMama, targeted
at parents, who want to learn more about
climate change. We work to provide resources
for parents to use in discussing environmental
issues with their kids. Well we can't help
financially, we would be happy to list you
on our "partner" page,
as well as in a blog post, if that helps.
Let me know.
Best and thanks for all you do.
Harriet (November 2011)
Dear Harriet: I like your
site and thank you for your kind
offer to list me as a partner and
mention me in a blog post. Yes please!
am no kid; I’m a mom of
three adorable children and the
reason I wrote you is because
I am a staunch advocate of loving
planet earth more. Recently,
we just constructed our dream
house. In it I had a rain cistern
built to catch abundant rain
showers for irrigation use later
on. We live in the Philippines;
just imagine our rainy season
on our roof I also installed
a solar panel and am even planning
to add a wind turbine as another
source of renewable energy. I
just read that planting vegetables
on the roof helps cool our entire
house and that’s fantastic!
I’d add beds of lettuce,
tomatoes and other greens and
it will be an organic produce.
Problem is, here in my country,
of these renewable energy sources
is kind of prohibited. Politics!!!
So these are imported and only
the privileged can buy them.
I am at this age when I really
dream of producing the gadgets
in small scales and lobby for
the government. Any entity you
can refer to me where I could
learn to make it? I
call this ‘building wealth
while preserving earth’.
Renee E. Cope, RN MBA
You may not be a kid, having three of
your own, but I'm sure other real kids
will be interested to hear what you are
doing and trying to do. It sounds weird
that the government won't permit local
development of renewables. The best source
I could find for the sort of things you're
looking for was http://gotwind.org/.
It could be a useful start point for
Meanwhile, congratulations on what you have done and
good luck with what you are hoping to do!
Thanks for helping me with my energy project!
Your website rules. GO PENGUINS!
kelly (October 2011)
I'm very pleased to hear that my website
has been useful to you for your project.
Thank you for writing to tell me!
Hi Tiki: I really want to save this
earth from global warming i just hope
we can. I will spread this website around.
From a green helper (October 2011)
Hello 'green helper': How great to have
someone doing their best to spread
the word about how the planet is
warming. Thank you for writing to
tell me and good luck! We'll need
Tiki, My name is Lilly. I was just
looking on google about penguins and
I found your website! It is awesome.
I love penguins, they are really cute
animals; in face, they're my favorite
The fairy penguin is my favorite type
of penguin. I am thirteen years old
by the way... Well bye! With love,
Lilly S. (October 2011)
Lilly: I'm glad you found
my website and like it so much. Penguins
are my favourite animals too, especially
king penguins like me! But I like fairy
penguins too - and all the other sorts
of penguins that live in the southern
oceans. I also like people which is why
I run my website.
Thank you for sharing
these links to home school parents
which is a big help on teaching kids
about water conservation and the consequences
of not doing so. Such a big help for
a busy single dad like me.. I am really
pleased about the number of links in
addition to the great content available
I'd usually spend hours online looking
for a good resource until I discovered
your website. It was a breeze going
through your page - you really did
a good job here. Now your site is just
a click away from my bookmark. (September
Jacob: I did find your comments and
suggestions useful. I have updated
Tiki's pollution links page and added
your link. Thanks for taking the time
to alert me to this. Dead links are
always a bit of a nightmare!
Tiki: I’m from Colombia.
I have just found your page. I think
it is wonderful . I want to be your
friend. I´m eight years old
and love Penguin’s. Your page
about electricity helped me a lot
to learn and do my homework. Thank
you very much.
Laura (August 2011)
Laura: I'm delighted you want to be
my friend and that you love penguins.
(So do I!) I'm also very happy that
my energy guide (I guess that's what
you found) has been helpful to you
for your homework.
If you live in Colombia, I imagine your first language
is Spanish, or perhaps you are bilingual. Anyway, your
English is very good indeed - especially if you're
Thank you for writing to me. It really made my day!
I'm in year six and at my school
I am doing a project on pollution.
I found your guide really useful!
to you! I was very excited to have your
nice email. It really makes me pleased
when someone like you writes to me and
tells me they like my guides. By the
just made a new Pollution
Quiz. You might like to try it out!
Thank you for writing to me!
Hi Tiki: I like your website but
i dont feel giving you money is safe
so i wont sorry if you dont mind.
hows the weather where you live
the way were do you live? My name
is Angel.I like your name. i am
7 years old and i am adventures!!
ok please reply as soon as u can
:0 thanx. byee, From: Angel (July
Angel: I really don’t expect
someone who is 7 to give money to keep
my website running. That’s really
for grown-ups with their credit cards
(which are quite safe to use on this
I spend my life at sea in the South
Atlantic and Antarctic oceans. But
I’m a ‘magic’ penguin
because I have to run my website (with
some help from humans) and I live in
Britain to do this. The weather at sea
is often cold and stormy but in Britain,
it is quite warm and sunny at the moment.
I prefer the cold!
Tiki: Hello, this is Eunjee from
Great Ryrie Primary School. How are
you? I'm grade 6 and at the moment
I'm doing my homework. The homework
task is to go into your website and
read through it carefully. After that
we have to write a review about your
website including whether or not your
website would be helpful for us when
we learn about global warming. I think
your website is very well-created.
Our topic this year is global warming.
We looked at natural disasters. We
finished that session on Thursday.
I won't be able to know what our next
sub-topic will be because I'm going
away to Korea on Tuesday to see my
grandparents. If I didn't tell you,
I'm from Korea. But I'm very good at
English. I have a question for you
Tiki. I love our nature. Especially
animals. My favourite animal is a cheetah
because it runs so fast like me and
I like its elegant body. What's your
favourite animal? I'll make an exception
to penguins. I want to be a environmentalist
or a vet when I grow up. Is there anything
easy that I can possibly do to save
our nature and get to know it more
without paying? If there is please
tell me. I'm very eager to help our
nature. Please write back. I'll be
expecting a reply from you. Thank you!
From a nature lover, Eunjee (July
Eunjee: It’s a long time
since you wrote to me. I haven’t
replied sooner because I’ve been
away. Sorry! I’m very impressed with
your English and very pleased that you
are finding my website useful, in particular
my global warming guide. I don’t
really have a favourite animal. I like
penguins (obviously) and I like humans,
especially the ones like you who want
to help nature. Good for you! A very
good (free) starting point for finding
out how you can help nature is WWF (http://wwf.panda.org/).
Have you tried that? And have you seen
my guide to Life in Danger (http://tiki.oneworld.org/biodiversity/home.html)?
Thanks for writing to me.
Tiki I am going to make an Eco friendly
group to help clean up around the neighborhood.
Sincerely, Damari (May 2011)
Damari: That's very good news. I hope
your eco group is a big success. Well
Tiki your website is absolutely brilliant
I love it its helped me on energy
and pollution and many other things
when Im at school we look on your
energy page but I always sneak on
your pollution page I have looked
at every thing on your website iv,e
done all your puzzles and cross words

Lauren: I loved your email! Thank you
for all the kind things you said about
my guides, puzzles and crosswords. It
makes it all so worthwhile when kids
like you write and tell me all the things
they like about my site. Have you tried
my quizzes? I’ve just done one
on climate change. As for my age, I’m
not really sure how old I am. Penguins
don’t bother about things like
that. Thanks again for writing to me.
