I just joined Care2 recently and am in petition signing heaven. But I notice that with 7 million members evidently in Care2 a woefully small number seem to actually DO something valuable toward helping the planet, meaning only a small number of members seem to sign petitions for this and that cause. After being a passionate nature advocate for 9 years I've learned that written and personal comments that address issues such as through petitions DOES carry a lot of weight with those in a position to effect the changes you want them to. In other words the squeaky wheel does get the grease, and those that shout the loudest the longest usually win in issues. So come on people! Make it a point to go to the Petitions page, pick at least 5 a day that interest/inflame you and sign and send your voice too. While it's nice to have a good old social free-for-all place like Care2, it's the actual help we all give to the planet. To be effective is the PLAN!
