Happy Earth day, to us!

Four decades in the making, and at the FIRST Earth Day suggestions were made to stop destroying Earth. Which, since any habitable Other Planet is decades in the future, and Earth happens to be our ONLY life support mechanism until then, and the destruction could kill Earth long before then…

At the First Earth Day, Public Transportation was touted. Since then, the SUV has taken over the roads, the roads have been expanded, still not enogh to satiate the Single Passenger Car Monster. The Oil and Coal industry fight very hard against public transportation, call it “socialism”.

There’s a growing industry in Solar Power, which the Oil and Coal industries, and the automakers, sick their TeaBag attack dogs on any possibility of Government assistance in the advancement of the technology. While and at the time lining up every budget cycle, or as they call it “Feeding Time”, sticking their fat corporate snouts in the Welfare Trough.

Disposable packaging was a newer technology, only a few decades old. Now that has mushroomed, (mushroom is a good image, it’s the fruiting carpophore of Mold, if you will: the Flower of Decay) as have Disposable Everything.

Earth might have given herself a gift in the form of increased vulcanism. Since “our” political leaders can’t pull themselves away from the Corporate Welfare Trough or grow any kind of Spinal Fortitude to stop the Oil and Automobile and Disposable Toxins industries from killing our planet, at least it will slow down Global Warming. Maybe long enough for them to get their fat porky Collective Arse in gear.

Mama Nature is doing for us what we should have been not-too-damn-greedy to do for ourselves.Not being a killjoy, I hope,

We do need to inject a LOT of righteous anger into the discussions today. Not Aggressive Violent Whiny Tantrums like the Tea-Bags throw, but a similar level of energy.

Remind the “conservatives” that the root of their name is “conserve”. Not, you know, wasting everything in a hedonistic orgy of greed.

The ecology is the very root of our economy.
