Earth Day

I know that those on the right-side of the political spectrum view the earth as a money-making resource, but those on the other side, who love  and cherish Mother Earth, work to protect the planet from further gouging, rape and injury.

What have YOU done to help Mother Earth live long and prosper?

  1. Populating it with more children! Yah Baby…C’mer Bitch! Spread em! And I hope they gets good jobs so theyze kin buy SUV’s so we kin drill for more oil so they kin go to McDonalds and stuff their little asses and get supersized! Iffen we run outta oil then we will bomb the fuck outta some rag head Islam basterd place and make them give it up!
    Praise the Lord and get me another beer!

    Matthew, I hope you care more about your planet than the smart ass non sequiter you posted.

  2. I’m quoting a very dear friend’s wish on this Earth Day. ” Love her as she loves us, unconditionally, as she constantly and respectfully gives us her beauty and truth as well as our experiences and relationships, an environment for our manifestations… and so much more without ever asking for anything in return. Love her as she loves us.”
    I thought that just beautiful!

  3. Work harder to support creative solutions to minimize and reduce the damage we do to our planet. Sometimes, it seems hopeless, as an individual to believe we can have an impact. but collectively we are a force for good!
    There are so many creative ideas regarding passive power that you cannot say it is a fantasy. It is way beyond fantasy, it’s real and it becomes more real every day.
    I was reading an update on the University of Michigans fishtail design energy grid in the Detroit River. After almost 2 years, it’s functioning without any maintenence. Just one of thousands of viable, real technologies that are at our fingertips.

  4. There are so many creative ideas regarding passive power

    There surely are, but here in America, it is difficult to find them/install them and/or hook them up to the grid. When I was visiting my Black Forest village every home had a solar panel atop it. And there were clusters of wind turbines just outside of the village.

    Where's my nearest turbine? Search me. And which house in my neighborhood has a solar panel? not one.

  5. A whole lot of people have to change at the same time to make a difference. We have a long way to go before that ever happens. Too many people do not understand the urgency of the matter and don’t seem very interested in becoming more enlightened about it. If we stay the course and keep ignoring the warnings that the planet gives loudly – the planet will shake us off and start over.

  6. We gave a lot of harmful addictions that we have to get over. A lot of the addicitons are totally pointless habits that are counterproductive.
    The Icelandic Volcanic eruption really brought home to a lot of people how addicted to “SPEED” or the dream of it, the fantasy, we have become.
    We expect to be able to take jets every where all the time and get from one continent to another in a matter of hours.
    Well, if you travel a lot, like me and can’t afford executive class and are always lookinmg for bargains, speed is an illusion. You spend more time waiting for connections, flight delays hanging out in aiproprts watching massive humans trudging from one fast food counter to the next trying to fill up those waiting hours.
    There is more stress involved in air travel these days.
    I have a knew meme for all of you!

    Huge low environmental impact machines that can be covered with solar panels…
    There have been some pretty revolutionary advances in blimp design. They just aren’t as fast as jets, but they sure aren’t affected by volcanos and are now a lot faster than they were in the days of the Graf Zeppelin.
    We could even have luxurious Phillip Stark designed lounges…The results are in from the week we spent without planes in the skies here in Europe and the CO2 emissions are way down!

  7. My 10-year-old grandson chose to build a solar collector/ solar panel for a science project a few weeks ago. He and his father [with peering grandfather] helped make the plans, design and the final product. In the end, the small black box and painted pop cans absorbed the heat of the sun and the small solar panel ran a small motor with hand-carved fan blade.

    It was the ‘hit’ of the classroom, thermometer measurements taken at regular intervals.

    However, his ‘grade’ on it was B- because the dittoed worksheet from the workbook was incomplete.

    Deflated 10-year-old.

    Perhaps, though, his display for the other children in his class might alight a spark in them to understand how simple and inexpensive solar energy can be.
