Every Day is Earth Day

When we pollute our planet,
we  pollute ourselves.


If we don’t look after our life support system, how will we live?

We all need clean air, clean water, healthy soil, and safe food.

When They Poisoned the Pests, I Didn’t Care

When they poisoned the pests,

I didn’t care, because I wasn’t a pest…

When they poisoned the frogs,

I didn’t care, because I was not a frog…

When they poisoned the birds,

I didn’t care, because I wasn’t a bird…

When they poisoned the air,

I didn’t care, because it was on the other side of the planet…

When they poisoned the ocean,

I didn’t care, because I wasn’t a fish…

When they poisoned the lands,

I didn’t care, because it wasn’t near my land…

When they poisoned the people,

I didn’t care, because it wasn’t anyone in my family…

(besides, those people with MCS/ES were acting all crazy, wanting me to change my laundry products, stop using fragrances, and get rid of my wi-fi, among other things)

I Love Pollution

 Said No-one Ever

said no one ever 3.

Although, come to think of it, maybe someone HAS said they love pollution!

Those who profit while creating it are no-doubt not complaining about pollution, and some of  those who sell us things like inhalers and  drugs are actually loving pollution’s effects on their bank balances:

50% of US Population Breathes Unhealthy Air!

Outrageous!

“Nearly 150 million people, roughly half of the population in the United States, currently live in areas with unhealthy levels of air pollution that is linked to serious health impacts, such as asthma attacks, lung cancer, heart attacks, strokes and even death. Children are particularly susceptible to the health effects of air pollution because their lungs are still developing. Air pollution also disproportionately impacts vulnerable populations already burdened with chronic diseases such as asthma, heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Scientists warn that the buildup of carbon pollution in the atmosphere leads to warmer temperatures worsening the conditions for ozone formation in some places, and making it harder to achieve healthy air for all.”

There’s Petrochemicals in What?

We now breathe, drink, eat and wear petrochemicals every where, every moment, every day! There’s no getting away from them!

Where are they coming from?

“The petroleum industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products… Petroleum (oil) is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, and plastics.”

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petroleum_industry)

So many of the things we use (and consume) are being made from petrochemicals.

Over 500 Global Scientists Sound New Alarm

Global colony collapse is really happening. Sitting back and ignoring it, wishing it would just resolve on its own, or thinking someone else is going to fix things is no longer an option.

We ALL have to take this seriously and show some love now if future generations are going to have any hope of anything resembling a decent quality of life.

“We must work hard to solve these global problems, starting today.”

Global scientists sign message of Scientific Consensus on Maintaining  Humanity’s Life Support Systems in the 21st Century:
Information for Policy Makers

Consensus Statement Illustration

As members of the scientific community actively involved in assessing the biological and societal impacts on global change,

we are sounding this alarm to the world.

For humanity’s continued health and prosperity, we all –individuals, businesses, political leaders, religious leaders, scientists, and people in every walk of life –must work hard to solve these five global problems starting today:

1) Climate Disruption        
2) Extinctions        
3) Loss of Ecosystem Diversity        
4) Pollution        
5) Human Population Growth and Resource Consumption
