Today's haul. Some days it's easy to keep my 5 Gyres pledge and other days not so.
Dear Mr. Kerry,
The Keystone XL pipeline will tranport an incredibly corrosive and deadly product across our country with the real possibility of destroying wildlife habitats, polluting our groundwater and surface waterways and destroying people's way of life. All this for a neighboring country whose government's attitude towards climate change is diametrically opposed to our own beliefs and for a few jobs. Big money from big business is the only support this pipeline has. Its proponents care nothing of the environment. An environment we have a stewardship to maintain come climate change or big money. If we do not have a clean and viable environment to live in then what else matters? So some brothers may make more money? They can't count what they already have. They are selfish and if our government gives in to their misinformation and dubious tactics it is just as selfish. It is the coming generations that will reap the horrors of the pipeline approval. This is the defining moment of the present administration. Will their commitment to a cleaner, healthier and safer world turn out to be real or another lie and disappointment? The real people have spoken. Your legacy and our future is in your hands. Choose wisely.
to a great adventure, my retirement. My own declaration of independence if you will. I don’t know why or how this minor occurrence in the scheme of things has exploded into hugh fireworks displays around the country. I did not see any such displays on the anniversary of our country’s declaration of independence on the second of July. If you deem it appropriate to celebrate my retirement, I thank you. Hope you have a great time. But instead of setting off skyrockets, and colorful aerial bombs thus polluting our skies, I ask that you use the “ILoveFireworks” app (99 cents) on your mobile device. Then you can celebrate any and all special occurrences whenever you like and save our atmosphere. Thank you. #declarationofindependence #adventure #July2nd #pollution # retirement #celebration #July4th #atmosphere 😉
