I CHANGED MY PIC TO GREEN FOR THE WEEKEND…
for Two Reasons:
1) Because there is a 420-inspired campaign by OPERATION-CANNABIS to Turn your Profile Pic Green if you support Legalizing Marijuana…
and
2) Sunday is Earth Day, and there is nothing I long for more than a healthy world, running completely on GREEN ENERGY!

THIS LOOKS LIKE AN AWESOME ALPHABET BOOK!  Start them young!
from the author:
“It’s never too early to teach kids about keeping the earth green. It’s as easy as A is for ATMOSPHERE, B is for BIOME, and C is for COMPOST. I co-authored this book with a friend to introduce young children to “green” words in a simple and entertaining way. I created all of the colorful cut-paper illustrations that reinforce the word with a vivid image. It’s the perfect book for Earth Day or any day. The book can be signed or personalized by the authors, if desired. You won’t find a better price in bookstores or on the internet.
For the next few weeks, I’m including a FREE recycled materials craft kit. It includes everything you need for a squirrel, frog and octopus. These cute critters are made from recycled paper towel holders, brown bags and wallpaper scraps. But wait there’s more… three coloring pages made from illustrations in the book.
This is an easy way to help your children think “green”. HAPPY EARTH DAY!”

Earth Day should NOT be a day of APATHY!!
IMHO we should be marching against Nuclear Energy this Earth Day!!
They’ve been marching in Japan for weeks.  Funny how we hear so little about the ongoing nuclear leak in our western media these days.
What will it take, an accident on our own shores to motivate people to rally against this extremely unsafe form of energy production?

GO ORGANIC FOR EARTH DAY TO SAVE THE PLANET!!

"2010 was the warmest year on record. And it was warm. We were on the phone one day with our 350 crew in Pakistan and one of them said, ‘It’s hot out here today,’ and I was surprised to hear him say it because it’s usually hot in Pakistan during the summer. He said, no it’s really hot. We just set the new, all time Asia temperature record, 129 degrees. That kind of heat melts the arctic. That kind of heat causes drought so deep across Russia that the Kremlin stops all grain exports. That kind of heat causes the flooding that still has 4 million people across Pakistan homeless tonight.
"It’s tough, it’s grim, but the good news at least is that it’s clear, the science. We have a number: 350 parts per million. 350, the most important number on earth. As the NASA team put it in January 2008, ‘any value in the atmosphere greater than 350 parts per million is not compatible with the planet on which civilization developed and which life on earth is adapted.’ Getting back to 350 parts per million will be very very tough, the toughest thing human beings have ever done, but there is no use complaining about it, it’s just physics and chemistry. That’s what we have to do."
