I just checked a new book out of the library: Whole Green Catalog: 1,000 Best Things for You and the Earth, edited by Michael W. Robbins. Here's a small bit from the foreward by Bill McKibben:
"The series of interlocking environmental crises we now face - global warming, water shortage, food supply, peak oil - seem daunting. That's because they are daunting, the worst cul-de-sac into which human beings have ever stumbled. It will take every bit of wit and skill we have to chart a course through the next few decades - and it will demand real community and political engagement from everyone who cares.
But of course, that's the view from up high, taking in the whole sprawling mess. It can also be viewed, productively, from down below, where each of us actually lives. Where, a hundred times a day, we make small choices that influence the future, our own and the planet's."(The emphasis is mine). I am excited for this Earth Day because I think there is a collective consciousness rising that is the start of a new revolution - one that will treasure and protect this Earth that we live on. We are all called to make a difference and so many are taking up the charge. I am so thankful for all of you and encouraged by you! You inspire me and give me courage to do better. There are so many caring people, but the following are some I especially want to thank:

I also want to give a shout out to Ryan Elizabeth Cope's thought-provoking blog (I think he is on course to be the Jamie Oliver of the 'plastic revolution'): http://sevenintheocean.wordpress.com/

We always hear 'Let's make Earth Day every day' and this year I think there are enough people carrying the wave that it will keep rolling.....
