A lot of bloggers of my persuasion would have run a post like this on Earth Day. Me, I have always found Earth Day to be a big joke. It's there so some people can feel good about themselves and do nothing for the environment. Probably the best thing about Earth Day is that some little kids usually get to release some balloons into the environment, which while lousy for the Earth, is fun for the kids anyway.
SAVING THE EARTH IS NOT A ONE DAY EVENT.
Saving the Earth takes some effort. Hell, it may take a freakin' REVOLUTION. It surely will take getting rid of capitalism...and you don't get rid of capitalism in a day.
Earth Day actually, as you can tell by now, just pisses me off.
The post below says a lot not just about the Earth, but about us and U.S. It gets close to the heart of the matter, the heart of several matters actually.
Maybe it belongs on Theoretical Weekends, but since it is my blog I can do whatever I want and what I want is to give you the following from EcoEarth.
