@Sydni: I watched Flow earlier this year, and may have posted a comment about it, though I can't remember exactly (and I don't really want to search through 142 comments to find it). It was a good documentary, and very enlightening and discouraging as well. It just reinforces what I already know about corporate greed, and the feudalist agenda of the conservative movement (who is really behind the privatization of water, as it most certainly isn't "Michael Moore Liberals").

Blue Gold: World Water Wars

In every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an expediential level as population and technology grows. The rampant overdevelopment of agriculture, housing and industry increase the demands for fresh water well beyond the finite supply, resulting in the desertification of the earth.

Corporate giants force developing countries to privatize their water supply for profit. Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk water export schemes. Corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain. Military control of water emerges and a new geo-political map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars.

We follow numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, from court cases to violent revolutions to U.N. conventions to revised constitutions to local protests at grade schools. As Maude Barlow proclaims, “This is our revolution, this is our war”. A line is crossed as water becomes a commodity. Will we survive?

@Sydni: I finally got to watch that Disappearing Sea Plant video. That is strange, and amazing. The ocean has some of the most incredible life forms on the earth.

Support the EPA's Stand Against Big Oil and Coal


Last month, CREDO had a big victory on carbon regulation: On April 17, EPA formally declared carbon dioxide and five other heat-trapping gases to be pollutants that endanger public health and welfare, setting in motion a process that will lead to the regulation of the gases for the first time in the United States. This is a huge step forward in the fight to curb global warming - especially in light of the Senate's refusal to act on this particular issue.

However, the EPA cannot start regulating carbon until they've accepted public comments and can show there's broad support for this policy. Should be a no-brainer, right?

Not for Big Oil and Big Coal. The oil and coal industries are paying lobbyists to wait in line at hearings, and are waging a massive campaign to weaken any new laws from the EPA on this issue. They've spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying in Washington, and they'll stop at nothing to keep the EPA from implementing the strong regulations we need to regulate carbon and other noxious gases.

We need to stand together and stand strong on this issue, and show the EPA that we support their efforts to regulate carbon. Send a message today to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson: Tell her that the EPA must regulate carbon as much and as soon as possible.

Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating with More Than 75 Recipes

From Publishers Weekly
Cookbook author Bittman (How to Cook Everything) offers this no-nonsense volume loaded with compelling information about how the food we eat is doing damage to the environment, what changes to make and why. Authors have covered this topic before (Michael Pollan, for example, in The Omnivores Dilemma and In Defense of Food), but Bittman takes a practical turn by concluding with 77 recipes that make earth-friendly eating doable and appealing. His collection of reliable recipes even includes such meat dishes as Thai beef salad, which isnt meat-heavy, but rather has just the right balance of meat to greens. There are also such staples as super-simple mixed rice; chicken not pie; and modern bouillabaisse. Bittman decries consumption of over-refined carbohydrates, but doesnt leave off without some sweets, including chocolate semolina pudding and nutty oatmeal cookies—suggesting, as the whole book does, that a diet in synch with the needs of the earth doesnt result in a sense of utter deprivation.

Eco IQ

There’s more than just one type of smarts - book smarts, street smarts, emotional smarts...and now eco smarts. Daniel Goleman, author of Ecological Intelligence, takes host Steve Curwood to a drugstore to see what brands of shampoo are ecologically intelligent.

Listen here.

Passage of a Strong Climate Bill Must be a Top Priority for Congress

The U.S. Congress just passed a stimulus package that includes strong provisions promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency—an important down payment on our country’s transition to a cleaner energy future.

But the science is clear and it’s urgent: to prevent the worst effects of global warming, Congress must go further, and it must act now. Comprehensive climate policy can curb global warming while breaking our dependence on oil and putting Americans back to work.

As Congress turns to critical legislation to set a limit on our global warming pollution and make polluters pay for their emissions, congressional leaders are seeking the expertise of the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). In late February, UCS Climate Scientist Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel testified before a key House of Representatives committee about the deep reductions in global warming pollution required to protect future generations.

UCS activists can also play a critical role by telling Congress that effective climate policy must:

*reduce global warming emissions swiftly and deeply and ensure a rapid policy adjustment in response to emerging climate science;
*make emissions cuts affordable and achievable by investing in clean energy, energy efficiency, and programs to protect consumers and workers;
*fund programs that reduce global warming pollution caused by tropical deforestation, which accounts for 20 percent of global emissions; and
*exclude loopholes that would let polluters delay or avoid emissions reductions.
Tell your representative and senators to make passage of a strong climate bill a top priority today.

Please make your letter personal by adding in your own thoughts and concerns. Every letter makes a difference, but customized letters have the greatest effect!
