Earth Day 2015

22 Apr

I found this quiz that calculates your ecological footprints.  Unfortunately it uses flash, so not every device can take the quiz.  But the result I got was that if everyone lived as I do, we would need 2.1 planet Earth to provide enough resources.  Sorry people.  If you would like to take the quiz, you can find it at the Earth Day Network

Earth Day 2015

Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year!

The 1992 Earth Flag pledge was written by Maurice Strong, the first executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme and former commissioner of the World Commission on Environment and Development in 1986. The 1992 pledge reads as follows:

I pledge to the best of my ability to help make the earth a safe and hospitable home for this and future generations.

The 2015 Earth Flag pledge is:

I pledge to make Earth Day Every Day and reduce my carbon footprint.

Walk softly to these links to read more about Earth Day: There’s the Earth Society Foundation, the Direct Design Now that explains how the movement started (very interesting read), and Earth Day Canada, and finally, the Earth Day Carol, where you can learn all about Earth Day with an app that is available for iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle Fire, and Nook Color devices.

    The human foot print is only 3%, 30% forest fires, 15-20% permafrost melt in the summer months, Ocean 25%, and Volcanoes, responsible for the small Ice age from Circa 1430 -1850, Millions died in Northern Europe etc. The earth, Mother Gaya has a natural menstrual system, where she goes through cycles of Hot and Cold lasting hundreds of years. This Global warming and climate change is Nonsense, we can be sent back to the Ice age if mother nature blows her top. There is nothing we can do, or any amount of money that will prevent that, however throwing your Rubbish all over the place, keeping it clean I’m good with that. The Climate change band wagon serves only one purpose, pocketing the Billions of dollars for their own personal agendas: Living La vida Loca!
