Taliesin Today
 
I am the poisons in the air you breathe leading to chronic lung disease.
I am the smog which blinds the vision of that which was meant to be seen.
I am the liter along the roadways from humans who have no pride.
I am the boarded up vacant buildings and houses of a society grown decadent.
I am the stench of urine and feces in the buildings long since deserted.
I am the scum on the water which has killed all life beneath.
I am the poisons in the water you drink because it is cheaper for industries to so pollute.
I still exist in the reds, pinks, and oranges of the evening sunset.
I still exist as the hawk of dawn soaring in the pure morning sky.
I still exist as the clear bubbling mountain brook which feed the larger rivers.
I still exist as the flourescent, green shoot, breaking through the earth to touch the light for the first time.
I still exist as the full bloomed flower in all of its glory.
Which do you prefer?
Which do you choose?

I am not a sheep who follows blindly without pause,
But am a proud wolf who will fight for a good cause!

EARTH CHARTER

Preamble

In order for us as one human family to effectively assume our new role as the custodians of Earth, and as people who care about Earth's future, we will strive to act in accordance with the following principles and guidelines.

We are the first generation to determine the life or death of the planet we have inherited. The care of Earth is now our most important task.

The Earth Charter defines our new role and responsibility and strengthens our efforts. It inspires unity and cooperation in our task so that we may preserve, restore and increase Earth's beauty and bounty for our own and future generations. People of all ideologies and religions can, and must, unite in pursuing this vital purpose.

A massive communications effort is needed to publicize every program or product that improves the care of Earth. We must no longer condemn others, but each seek what we can honestly praise. In this way we can obtain public support and enthusiasm for Earth care action and motivate people everywhere to practice Earth care.

We believe that a vigorous united effort to understand, protect and revive our planet will at the same time promote mutual trust and accommodations needed for creating a peaceful future. The signers urge individuals and communities throughout the world to endorse and ratify this Earth Charter. Together we can save our planet.

Principles

Article 1. Earth Care

The natural bounty of land and sea is the inheritance and responsibility of all Earth's people. Each person's help is now needed for the care of Earth and each person can benefit from that care. We must each act responsibly to help nurture and care for our planet -- in our block, our neighborhood, our vocation and in the new policies, formulated within all institutions and governments, that affect the future of Earth. The fact of Earth's existence, and the nature of the live web of which we are all a part, should form the basis for all future actions.
Article 2. Earth Rights

We hereby determine that in pursuing the goal of Earth's renewal, opportunity will be provided every person on Earth to share in its future. More important than property rights and the rights of sovereignty is the fundamental right of each person's claim to a portion of our planet: and opportunity for every person, who will contribute to the care of Earth, to have a portion of land, a home, a job and the means to learn the skills needed to live a wholesome life.
Article 3. The Human Spirit

The greatest contributions to human progress -- whether in art, music, science, religion or philosophy -- have come from tapping the inner resources of the human spirit. To many religious people stewardship is a divine obligation: subjecting oneself to the will of God creatively and comprehensively. To humanitarians, stewardship is a moral imperative. To foster a global spirit of cooperation it is essential that we recognize our common desires for love, truth, beauty, justice and freedom, and that we are all inter-dependent members of one human family.
Article 4. Education

In order to carry out our responsibility as custodians of Earth, we must all learn how to produce, trade, consume and create without damaging the delicate fabric of life; to practice an Earth Care Ethic. An Earth Care Curriculum is now the first requisite for a good education.
Article 5. Production

We must walk the soft path that meets human needs without endangering the many interdependent Earth life forms that exist throughout our biosphere. So urgent is this task that we must now achieve the same kind of massive innovation that nations have demonstrated in time of war. Decentralism and self-help programs are urged for grass roots participation everywhere. Eventually, all mass-produced products must conform to Earth care criteria: (1) long life; (2) easy repair: (3) non-polluting in production and use; (4) energy efficient; and (5) recyclable.
Article 6. Trade-Marketing/Advertising

Our goal in Earth's renewal is to provide fair and equal access to credit, raw materials, exchange and trade,. Economic policies and incentives must reward those who provide basic human needs instead of those who, out of mindless shortsighted greed, unfairly exploit their neighbors. For this purpose a stable medium of exchange can and must be created, as well as an accessible means of mass transportation. Advertising should inform, not deceive.
Article 7. Consumption

Every consumer should realize each product he buys and uses can affect Earth for good or bad. An Earth Care Ethic will foster in our buying habits and personal conduct, choices that will avoid pollution and waste. Each person will be an educated consumer. The present practice of Earth Kill will be supplanted by Earth Care.
Article 8. Renewable Resources

The preservation, improvement and renewal of soil, water, air, wild life and vegetation must be a primary goal in our research and planning. All the basic physical needs of society must be obtained in ways that will increase rather than destroy Earth's renewable bounty. To this end a rapid transition is needed to greater conservation and use of renewable resources: to tracking and recycling scarce non-renewable raw materials, to new land use policies for clean water, healthy soil, parks, gardens and creative humane settlements. Sustainable population goals and sustainable solar energy are all essential for our survival.
Article 9. Communications

The new Earth Care Ethic is best communicated person-to-person. Each individual who makes Earth care a major goal can contagiously spread the excitement and adventure to be enjoyed as caretakers of our planet. Communicators in all media can also make a vital difference. Headlines for heroes who are caring for earth And about Earth care alternatives can create a sense of high purpose and adventure in young and old.
Article 10. Earth Day: A Yearly Celebration To Unite the World in the Care of Earth.

To strengthen the efforts described in this earth Charter, and to call attention to yearly progress in these efforts, we will celebrate Earth Day each year on the day of the March Equinox. In the week preceding Earth Day, we will help give an accounting of the state of the Earth -- in every part and as a whole. Earth Day will then be a time to celebrate Earth's life and progress, a time to come together in renewed dedication to its care, a time to rejoice, sing, dance and play, a public holiday shared by all people of Earth. Every community, city state and nation is invited and urged to plan their own special ceremonies and participation in this annual event.

About Me I have been referred to as a deadhead and a hippie throw back because of my long but thinning hair. I have not forgotten the reason & the purpose of the 60s movement and continue to change that which needs changed wherever and whenever I can. Most people will underestimate my real age by at least ten years as I don't act my age. Wisdom is recognizing that you can't do as much as the years add up, but one learns to do things smarter.
