My Philosophy If you only talk but you don't do, discuss or donate, your opinion doesn't count for much.
What Gives Me Hope That people are getting the idea --finally! -- that Green is good for them, even if it's only because their pocketbooks are hurting!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I'm not crazy enough for that kind of job...everyone knows "herding cats" is a known impossibility!
What/who changed my life and why Seeing an early man-made satellite, Echo 1, go over my house when I was 10, and thinking that the World would change. And it has, in ways we didn't even imagine -- Wrecking the planet is harder when you can see all of it from space, and knowing it's the only people habitable place we know of -- it's our LifeBoat!
