Make a statement
Tomorrow, as I hope all of you know, is Earth Day 2008. What do you plan to do?
In case you want to do something proactive but can’t think of what, let me offer a suggestion or two (or 4):
- Go out and pick up trash. It’s easy. It may be dirty, but well, get over it.
- Make a promise to yourself, call it a resolution if you prefer, that you will make changes in your lifestyle to help you and your family be more green. Blog about them. Let us know what you’re up to. There’s not a one of us out there that can’t do better.
- Call your representatives. The Earth Day Network is instituting a Call for Climate tomorrow. The phone number for the Capitol Switchboard is 202-224-3121. Ask for your representative and let them know that we need more to be done for the environment. Demand a moratorium on new coal burning plants. Demand renewable energy proposals. Demand carbon neutral buildings.
- Sign the Sky Petition.
