I believe nature will come out the winner in the end.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Stop clearcutting, stop oil drilling in the arctic, charge higher deposits for cans & bottles and make certain all packaging and containers are recyclable/reusable. I would promote alternative energy, legalize marijuana, and outlaw nicotine. I'd also ban cell phone use in moving vehicles and inside public places. Last, but not least, I would put pressure on China to free Tibet.
What/who changed my life and why
John Muir and Edward Abbey changed my life by showing me the value and appreciation of nature.
