    Earth Day needs to move their official day at least 2 weeks after 4/20 day. Hippies are still trying to remember where they parked their cars, less yet celebrate Earth Day. :)>-

    I do like the sentiment of everyday being Earth Day.

    As for observing it once a year, I think it would be more effective if instead if a specific date it was observed the way Monday holidays are. Not on a Monday, but if this fell on say the second Saturday of April each year it would be easier for people to participate in events. Most wouldn't be working. Much easier to fall by the wayside when it falls on a Tuesday.

    i believe earth day should be celebrated daily but also have a given day where there is a day off from work & ppl plant flowers, trees, gardens, throw dirty water on polluters (like big business companies)... as well as hog shit
    then beat them w/ rotten eggs & sticks

    starting w/ BP & other oil fuckers
    for poetry through the ceiling. ISBN: 1 4241 8840 7

    I think the idea of a paid day from work for those who want to plant flowers/trees, pitch in clean up garbage in a park is terrific idea.

    I'd have been happy to use a vacation day for it. Wouldn't have to be limited to planting stuff either - time and effort could be given (as it could / should? on any other day) to animals, to people, to cleaning up graffiti, etc.

    Those Oil Companies is Definitely a Good Place to Start.

    A Permaculture web site, cool!

    Thankfully, Bill Mollison's groundbreaking (that's a pun :wink: ) work has been reprinted in somewhat affordable publications however, the original full book has sadly not, to my knowledge, been reprinted and used copies are rarely found for less than $100.  If you're into this sort of thing and see this book for a reasonable price, grab it!

    Trump backed out of the paris agreement!!!

    Just 100 companies have been the source of more than 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions since 1988, according to a new report.
    The report found that more than half of global industrial emissions since 1988 – the year the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was established – can be traced to just 25 corporate and state-owned entities.

    That is horrible and interesting ^^^^.

    Here is a chart showing the worst culprits in 2015. Holy, Saudi Arabia. If anyone needs further proof as to why the US does the things it does in terms of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East in general, I would think this says a lot. And btw, Gazprom is mostly owned by the Russian Government (though they try to claim it's privatized, supposedly).

    watch your use of Gazprom, that is one of the Hill-bots and Mueller-bees trigger words. whatever you do, dont google gazprom and clinton or mueller!

    Why not, what difference would it make to me or anyone? Nobody gives a shit about Hillary anymore... besides you, of course. And what in the fuck does that have to do with the topic of my post or this thread?

    By "why the US does the things it does in terms of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East in general" do you mean support them?  That's how I interpret this.  First world countries and regions, especially North America, are what drives these companies, keeps them afloat and wrecks havoc on our environment. 

    But maybe I don't understand this chart or what it means.  It says, "product emissions".  Petroleum and coal as products we use certainly produce a hell of a lot of emissions.

    Am I missing something here?

    Re Trump backing out of the Paris agreement- obviously no surprise.  He must hate this planet something awful.
