picture a bright blue ball...

 suggested by Stuman: How about a forum deadicated just to our Mother Earth ? A place where we can talk specificly about recycling tips, reusing of what we can`t recycle and reducing waste. And other enviromental issues. I'm actually surprised we don't have something like this. Greenpeace and other groups have always been around the shows (at least the shows I remember) . And the GD has been into saving the rainforest and saving our Mother Earth. So lets talk about it here. Earth Day should be every day!! what do you all think abt it?

Another Day in The Gulf

And 210,000 gallons or crude oil, and natural gas now, has spewed into the growing Dead Zone. Perhaps Stephen King will write a book about it. Otherwise this story is not amusing, only a quest to make the responsible pay & pay & pay (Rightly so!).

These kind of spills happen 20 times a year in Nigeria, with their lax environmental regulation and rebel activity.

Does our planet have any chance?

Climateprogress.org has a summary of Kerry & Lieberman's bill to legislate a clean energy policy.

I see Transoceans (RIG) stock value has slipped quite a bit, due to the never-ending gusher

Another 24 hours...

... another 210,000 gallons of oil.

If you have any suggestions, please let BP, Trans Ocean and Halliburton know. They don't seem to have a clue.

Thanks,
Gaia

KRS10 thank you

Nice prayer like thoughts for the Great Mother, really brings it all back down to being in the NOW. I'd like to think that we as a human collective-consciousness live in a dance with HER, and the ALL of the universe, and in that dance we're learning the steps, with frequent stumblings over ourselves, awkwardly in and out of rhythm with the eternal pulsing beat, and that right now with this Gulf spill we are witnessing our own imbalance on the Grand Dance Floor. How many more adolescent-like stumblings over the millenniums we'd like to be here before it all becomes a graceful swaying of energy: mind, heart, physical manifestation dancing in a unity of perfection? If it's true on any level that our human collective awareness can push molecules, energy and time around, then we're like a nonverbal 1-1/2 year old grabbing things and stuffing them in our mouths to see what it is. Very primitive. But, hey, 1-1/2 year olds love to dance to music don't they? That's us in my mind. See you on the dance floor.

Another....

.... 210,000 gallons of oil.

Help your mother - contribute human hair to blot up the oil.

The Gulf oil Spill

Wow, I can't really believe that the BP Oil Gusher is STILL happening with no end in sight. Yesterday was Mother's Day. The Earth is our mother.

There is a terrible "Death Zone" growing in the Gulf and if no human can figure anything out it will soon be the world's toilet. Not long, the world.... Does anybody have an idea when this reserve would bleed itself out??

I'm starting to wonder why gas remains expensive.

Happy Mothers' Day

To the Great Mother

We owe our lives to you. Everything we have comes from you and through you. Your infinite beauty is more than we can imagine. Thanks for holding this place for us in the intricate web of life so that we can be part of the great mystery. We have so much to learn. Please accept our respect and our love. Especially today!

Mother Earth, Mother Nature, the Great Mother...

HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY!

Very radical (real), love your statement:

There is still oil on many beaches, thick, tarry shit a foot or more in the gravel. Look for similar things to happen in the Gulf. They'll make a good show, but after a couple of months it will degenerate into finger pointing and questions of whose responsibility it is to fund the indefinite cleanup. Oil companies are scum, but we let them be that way because of our lifestyle and because all that good corporate manna of jobs and energy trickles down to us serfs.

Big oil is "Big Spoil" in this case.
The scariest thing is when the F*** will somebody cap t!!!

I didn't know that Exxon actually blocked the clean up effort. Am angry to learn this, but not suprised.

Am feeling at a loss for words about how disgusting these oil leaks/spills are, and how evil the oil corps. are-allowing planetary ruin over their profits.
