The damage that humans are doing to this planet is absolutely heartbreaking to see.

While we are on the subject of the planet, I was wondering if anyone knew how I could go about recycling old vhs tapes? If anyone has the answer to this question, please private message me. Thanks.

I for one, would truly enjoy conducting a poll as to the degree of involvement of the average man and woman in combatting Global Climate Change (GCC).

I am constantly exposed to those people who profess to be "Green", and yet, I constantly witness behavour that is far from "Green".

For those those who are making some effort, I would suggest that they have chosen to come quite late to the party. Be it a reminder, the old saying goes like this, "Always leave the party while you are still having fun." Not arriving to the party after the work has been done.

Here at Occupy Tucson, we are preparing for a celebration, no, we haven't won great victories to date, but the celebration lies in the fact that we are still standing, still struggling.

We all should have arrived at the "party" just a wee bit sooner, years ago, and to think that many people now profess that composting isn't so hard, after all, they just received their new Prius, it looks so fine with all the solar modules as a background.

Perhaps we now regret laughing at those few, who installed solar on their home...more than 30 years ago, heated their domestic water needs with the Sun, we shouldn't have laughed when they turned to wind power. Some laughed when they saw a solar oven, others wanted one but didn't want to have pay for one.

I for one, forgive those who laughed incessantly, instead we welcome you to the party, no matter how late you chose to arrive.

OH YES it is the CONSUMERS!!! We are a buy and throw away generation. It is way to late to clean up this mess we've made in the past 200 years. Wow just look what we did in 200 years. The cost of progress.

Awesome! What a refreshing answer to those stupid, narrow-minded questions. Good for her. :D
