My focus today is what’s wrong in Our Family’s Home . . .
From the Environment Section of AlterNet:
Why Our Food Waste May Be Our Greatest Asset
Composting is key to reducing waste costs, cutting global warming emissions, and increasing urban food security.
Time to Face the Hard Realities of a Global Energy Crisis
America needs a comprehensive plan to deal with post-peak oil — and that is going to involve some serious long-term thinking.
Get Ready for the Post-SUV World!
SUVs and big pickups are waddling off into the sunset, leaving Americans with no more excuses for the nation’s profligate oil use.
Global Warming’s Twin Evil: Wildfires and Drought
The 850 fires burning in California alone should be a wake up call that we’re unprepared for rapid climate change.
All this and much more on AlterNet’s Site . . .
And, absorb this wonderful, educational, and surprising video: “Solving” climate change from David Keith.
What’s driven our Family to this Crisis?
What can we actually do?
How much of the Crisis is manageable?
What needs to occur in political circles to make change actually happen?
Why in the world, considering that the environmental problem was already a concern in the 1950’s, have we let it get this bad?
Will prayer help?
Will war help? ( That’s a trick question. Just seeing if you’re paying attention… 😉 )
What in the World can We DO !?!
I’d Love to see your thoughts and feelings in the comments . . .
Today’s quote is from ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPMENT: Statement to the first substantive session of the Preparatory Committee for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED):
“The principle of the unity of mankind naturally implies the need for world peace and security. The World Commission on Environment and Development observed in its report that world peace and security are central to sustainable development. The Bahá’í International Community agrees that as long as the specter of war continues to dominate international relations, the well-being of the human race and the environment will continue to erode. It is the Bahá’í view that the root cause of all war and injustice is the failure to recognize the fundamental oneness of the human race. Acceptance of the principle of oneness will induce the willingness to uncover and permanently resolve all other causes for conflict. Indeed, it must be the foundation for any serious attempt to find ways of living in harmony with our environment and each other.”
Bahá’í International Community, 1990 Aug 06, Environment Development
