Earth Day Celebrations and Tips

The celebration of Earth Day is upon us and everyone is looking for ways to help the environment.

But the most important way to celebrate the day and to keep the planet healthy is to SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS AND FARMS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

Put Global Warming, whether you believe in it or not, aside for a second on this Earth Day and follow me here.

It is without hesitation that I tell you that the cause of the Earth's problems, of the massive pollution of the Puget Sound in the Seattle area, of the awful state of our air and water, of the giant dead zones in the the corporate pox upon the Earth, mainly through America.

They are the ones who eschew regulations in the name of obscene profit. Money is the most powerful motivator in the world and even one minor tweak or concession can cause MASS LOSS OF PROFITS for the wealthy elite.

They are the ones who drive local farmers out of business or cause them to use their corn for poisonous, obesity-causing, unnatural high fructose corn syrup, and the ones who allow runoff from massive corporate farms' animal manure to pollute the waterways.

Saving the Earth in this day and age is about a return to personal responsibility, about looking after each other and supporting good, honest businesses and people rather than the slave labor corporations like Wal-Mart and the massive industrial DDT and growth-hormone-pumping farms that are the cause of almost all of our problems.

As the Earth heads towards uncertain times, question everything. Question who new taxes and laws are really looking after (hint: follow the money), and question the very existence of Earth Day. Why do we need one in the first place?

Every day should be Earth Day.

Maybe some day we will have a true reason to have an Earth Day celebration.

We must attack the roots of the greed that has gotten us to this point. It's not about CO2 emissions as much as it is the overall toxicity of the instruments of mass capitalism.

Spread the word, do your own research. This is merely a blog on Earth Day and I have other work to do so I couldn't state this as elegantly as I wanted to do.

Let's make it happen and let's take care of each other. Let's watch out for the little guy.
