This is a re-blog of my friends recent post...  Continues at Fresh and Prispy. I’m an environment lover, and when I read (or hear) about the damage we humans are causing to the environment, it saddens me. Pollution, wastage, species extinction…there are so many crimes we’re guilty of. However, feeling guilty or sad won’t help [...]

By Dr. David Suzuki [1] / AlterNet [2] January 12, 2017 The longer we delay addressing environmental problems, the more difficult it will be to resolve them.

Obama climate legacy

Our hope was that we could inspire him (Obama) to keep those promises. Even then, there were plenty of cynics who said Obama and his insiders were too closely tied to the fossil-fuel industry to take climate change seriously. But in the two years since, it’s looked more and more like they were right – [...]

global society…

Global society today faces myriad interlocking crises. These include the issues of war, environmental degradation, the North-South development gap and divisions among people based on differences of ethnicity, religion or language. The list is long and familiar, and the road to solutions may seem all too distant and daunting. It is my view, however, that [...]

total consumerism

“One... gets an impression that civilization is something which was imposed on a resisting majority by a minority which understood how to obtain possession of the means to power and coercion.

The beauty of the evening forest…

By |2017-07-17T01:07:59+00:00January 28th, 2014|Environment, Nature|

The beauty of the evening forest, especially under a full moon, throws into sharp contrast the boundary between the sky and the mountain ridges, as if viewing a wood-block print. It is a world of white and black. It is also a world savored only by those who experience it. Captured in photos or video, [...]
