This section of the site has been named “Green Planet” - the reason the page you are looking at right now looks so, well … green.
Thinking of a green Planet evokes forests, lakes, open air and all those beautiful things – as long as they are not polluted. But none of that really means much unless we have FREEDOM OF CHOICE, the lack of which is just another form of pollution. So, the green and our freedom of choice are inextricably related: one is not real without the other. This is the concept that these pages are intended to convey.
It's high time to start thinking in terms of "we are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore". I am talking about how our basic freedoms are trampled upon by those who are supposed to be protecting them, notably our government. Some examples would be:
… and much more.
But just saying "we are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore" is not enough. We all have to do our share and sometimes that means forgetting about "convenience". Not too many things make my blood boil more than having to drive to the supermarket, where most of the stuff available I wouldn't serve to my dog anyway, and on top of that, on the way there seeing 1000 cars, 800 of them huge SUVs, each with one person inside. Maybe what is happening with the gasoline prices nowadays is not such a bad thing. Sometimes I think we are all in a stupor when it comes to our environment.
Keeping our planet green, reversing the damage we have already done to the environment: these are complex issues that are not going to be resolved by one single organization or website. There are big issues: global warming, destruction of the rain forests, endangered species, ozone depletion, oil spills, and on and on… the list is endless. Then we have the small things: plastic bags and containers, disposable diapers, detergents and other household goods that pollute, inefficient appliances and gadgets we all use, etc. etc., another endless list.
Here, I do not pretend to offer solutions; I am not saying anything that most of us do not already know. The contribution I can make, at least right now, is to raise awareness of certain ongoing problems and their magnitude. If I can cause some people to change some habits, to act slightly different, perhaps I am contributing something.
