I recently was envited to help and support SEIU. I'm already disappointed w/ the candidates's endorcement based on what they claim that they'll do. I'd rather volunteer and help those who work to improve the environment and people's lives.

Any suggestions?

You can help me- as for my concern with the environment and bettering the world, it's all published on my site http://www.floridaplants.com. Send all your friends plants and flowers, and buy a couple of stoneware urns for yourself.

In a world sense- I only wish Lincoln National Corporation would buy a few pots so I could donate to smiles.org which provides expert surgery to children born with hairlips and cleft palates. The surgical team works in impoverished countries- they may have to come here eventually. Each surgery is $240.The difference this makes to a mother and child with this easily corrected facial deformity is life-changing.

Kill your lawn. Go vegetarian. Don't shop at Walmart or Target or... Put your money in a credit union. Grow an organic vegetable garden. Take your money out of the stock market and form an organic farming collective. Don't listen to corporate news. Infiltrate the local school board. Support public schools and teachers. Oppose any and all privatization of our commons and social safety nets.

Just remember this: Global warming eventually renders all jobs irrelevant and unsustainable. The environment has to come first, above all. Work to return health to the environment, and you work to create living, sustainable communities. Otherwise, if you work to support corporate power over healthy environments, you work on behalf of the death of all good things.

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
