Happy Earth Day 2017

From: The Earth Day Network

Earth Day 2017’s Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy 
Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection. 
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs 
This Earth Day, gather with your community for an Environmental & Climate Literacy Teach-In or another project focused on education. 

This is also a day to show your support for science-based decision making. Marches are planned globally.

The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.

Happy Earth Day to all Not Buying Anything readers. We are grateful for your support for this blog, and for all things green.

Go Green, and spread the word. Our survival depends on it.

 “We need intense activism along with structural analysis and the building of alternative, sustainable lifestyles. We need wisdom, reverence and creativity that we pull up from the depths of our uncertainty. Author Joanna Macy calls it ‘the Great Turning.’ It’s a shift in consciousness that aligns social healing, economic fairness and an end to war with environmental sustainability. And the time to make it happen is running out. We can’t afford to lose another decade, or another twenty minutes.”

    Happy Earth Day to all. Hopefully peace will come to this planet and a change of consciousness will enable us to care for our world. It is going to be a long journey for many and much false conditioning will need to be overcome.

    1. Alex,

      Yes, hopefully, and the sooner the better. The window for action is closing fast. It used to be 100s of years to take action, then we figured we had decades, and now scientists are talking about 10 to 15 years. But sometimes things can change very quickly. It will be interesting to see if this occurs some time soon, like it needs to.

    Changing to a plant based diet is the single biggest thing anyone can do for the environment. This Sums it up nicely:
