“How dare you steal my childhood with your empty words! We are in the beginning of a mass extinction & all you talk about are fairy tales of endless economic growth&false promises. How dare you!” Watch 16 yr Greta Thunberg at the UN climate action summit
My Response:
2. Whereas, YOUTH, not yet out of their teens, like #GretaThurnberg, are Roaring away.
3. Did #Christ use ‘“piccoli passi” – baby steps,’ my dear francis @Pontifex_es, or did Peter or Paul? …Did Isaiah, or ANY of the Prophets?
[ By taking ‘Baby Steps,’ and using words that would not hurt anybody, -UNlike mine, – We may be Protecting our Necks, to say the least. Is this What Christ wanted? ]
4. ‘How Dare you say, you have done Enough?’ …from Greta’s speech.

Beijing: The Air we Breath — Globe Drifting

*******

Very Powerfully and CONVINCINGLY presented.

Living in India, read about Smoke density in many of our cities. Had read about Beijing earlier. But these photographs! The look on the face of the Girl with the Mask!

But Ecology Refuses to accept our lines of Geography!

Smoke created in nearby states is the reason for the Dirty air in Delhi.

We All have to Wake up, and Do things about such.

The Air we Breath ‘Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.’ ― Jacques-Yves Cousteau You can feel it in your lungs and smell it in the air, a grey mist before one’s eyes that hangs between the trees- this is not a glitzy 1920’s party or a nightclub smoke machine on […]

One of the 4 key components of a Backyard Wildlife Habitat is water with the other 3 being food, cover and places to raise young. Providing water can be as simple as placing a bird bath in the garden  or as complicated as installing a pond.

Reflection of the sumac stand

 I have provided a bird bath, installed a small, molded pond  as well as creating downspout watering holes.

Pond in lower gardens This pond in the lower garden was created using a plastic molded form purchased at a yard sale for two dollars.

Green Frog Galvanized tubs are placed under downspouts to catch the rain. Animals now use them as a summer home. The tubs are surrounded by river rock which allows the water to flow into the gardens without washing the soil away.

  At every water source animals who share this space come  to drink, sun themselves and play.

Very Good! The Song of the Last one.

The Poem is Particularly Good.

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Let’s decide how much life I have got
Can you see me? I am the one in the middle
No! this not a riddle, I am the one, really in the middle
Some green life of my mother, Earth, left in me
Your feet are itching, to suppress me and press me
Hard on the ground, stopping my pulse abruptly
Don’t be so cruel, don’t be a fool
No fuss, but do you know
life on earth depend on us
You have this sense of invincibility
Master of the universe
Writer of this verse
Shame on you
Blame on you
Of all my mother’s woes
She is sick
Dying from, lack of fresh air, clean water
Killing forests is a non starter
What you get,
El Niño, el nina,
polar vortex, Katrina,

You decide, upto…
