"If you depend on the news for your worldview, friends, you're in a sad place." Garrison Keillor 11/9/02

The 'news' is filled with coverage of the immanent escalation of aggression on Iraq. Are you aware that our Environment has long been under attack under the present administration? We don't hear much about the merchandising and destruction of our physical world.
The National Resources Defense Council is a valuable tool to keep up with what is going on during this assault on clean air, clean water and the natural world we cherish. This link will help keep us abreast of the latest developments. If you familiarize yourself with just one area of environmental interest a week from thier homepage, from nuclear issues to the health of our oceans, to toxic chemicals and health and more, you will have enough knowledge to share for " a month of Sundays" as the old saying goes. Please share it, "pay it forward". We just don't learn these things from the nightly news.
This article speaks of some of our National Parks at risk.
A very interesting piece by Bill McKibben on the value of hybrid vehicles, and the changes to ones point of view they can afford.
This link is pretty eye opening and will generate much food for thought and discussion. I know that Whitley Strieber has some pretty controversial views; the subject of Earth Changes is pressing and recieves NO media attention; this piece is straightforward and informative. Give it a read; tell me what you think. Thank you, Greg for bringing this site to my attention.
