Happy Earth Day!

We have met the enemy and they are the corporations and those who shill on their behalf against stricter environmental laws and standards. It is not about saving the planet as George Carlin pointed out long ago, it's about saving ourselves. It's about preserving the Earth's natural beauty and protectinng delicate ecosystems which have given us life on this planet. So maybe if we start think of it as enlightened self-interest then there's a hope that we'll start moving towards goals of sustainability and reducing toxic emissions.
