How did we get to this? Our entire world on fire?! Catastrophic weather events are escalating in both frequency and intensity thanks to our failed efforts to combat global warming. This blog takes a look back at what has been recommended (and mostly ignored...) by experts of the past in order to determine what should--what must--be done today if we have any hope for tomorrow.
Mask wearing is here to stay for now. So don't just grin and wear it. Enjoy it by being part of the latest fashion trend: statement masks. No, not designer face gear.

It’s hard to make the case for older being better. But when it comes to trees, many argue that it's true. That mature trees contribute more to a healthy planet than young ones. And cutting them down in droves is bad. Bad for the earth. Even bad for humans and all living things. Still, many people believe that no harm is done if you simply plant a new tree for every older tree that is harvested. But at a time when we’re realizing that environmental choices have global consequences, we need to take a closer look at that long-held practice. To determine if it's helping or hurting the health of our planet. And perhaps inhibiting the sustainability of our collective future.

And why what you wear not only makes a fashion statement, but has an environmental impact on nature, your overall well-being, and even your health.

Our oceans have been sending out distress signals for decades but we’re just not listening. From Florida to Turkey to Japan, there are alarming signs that they aren’t just in trouble, but in dire straits. The call must be answered now. But before we get to what kind of action we must take; we need to understand exactly what type of emergency we’re facing. But brace yourself. It isn’t pretty.

When pollinators such as the monarch come to an end, so will our fragile food network. If there are no pollinators there won’t be any plants. No plants mean no food for animals. And not just the four- legged kind that give milk and provide meat. The human kind. The following blog overviews our current day butterfly effect. One that can have a happy or tragic ending depending on what we do next.

2010 –The Performance For Our Lives.
2010 was the year when public performance art to raise awareness about the increasing threat to our planet got real.
