Gaining that consensus requires work, spreading the word, getting it out there using different medians.

At one time, I never gave the environment a second thought. BECAUSE of this commercialization I have become aware…..informed….and eager to contribute to perserving our beautiful Earth.

Keep on. I want to learn even more ways to help our Earth. :)

Can you over emphasize Earth Day? I agree with you, no, you can’t. Are there some things to keep in mind with the theme of Earth Day like using less paper and less non-sustainable resources to get the message out? Indeed. Until the term “Earth Day” becomes obsolete, when every day becomes Earth Day, there’s quite a bit of work to do.

Last night I saw the U.S. premiere of “The Age of Stupid” a real wakeup call film that brings to light the environmental tipping point we are currently facing. It helps show the human side of the climate change issue, where “An Inconvenient Truth” discusses the science behind this phenomenon. The film makes it blatantly clear that we must take political action NOW and accelerate sustainable practices – most importantly, weaning off fossil fuels – before it’s too late. The UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December is a crucial milestone for improvement and for saving our planet.
