People's Climate March

People's Climate March

September 21st,

I pull on my cap and volunteer shirt, walk to Columbus Circle Subway Station, all while simultaneously yawning. It's 7:30 in the morning. I'm already on duty. 

As I gaze around, I glimpse passerby in absurd and fascinating costumes. A man or a sun, a man-sun strolls along. Someone with a pointed warlock hat- not really sure what he was supposed to be.

People are already here, committed to the act of defying climate…

Active Groups in My Area

I am a new Earth Science teacher interested in getting my class involved in a stewardship project.  Many of the groups I see advertised seem like they were active a few years ago.  Also, I'm unsure how to tell what is going on in my area.  Could someone assist me with site navigation?

Prison Break- For all you animal rights activists, here's a short story i think you'll enjoy. Thanks for reading it!!

Prison Break

         Beams of blinding light flood through my open window, as birds chirp noisily in the distance. The neighbor’s dog yaps relentlessly. I hate that little yapper’s pathetic bark almost as much I loathe touching the subway rail. Don’t get me wrong, I like dogs, but this one is the devil in disguise.

            Shuddering, I hastily slide my window shut, as a noise much more ferocious thunders from downstairs, vibrating the…

My favorite things about the environment

When it comes to the environment, I love love love animals. Especially snakes, owls, bats, lizards, frogs and turtles. I work at a local park where I handle snakes and turtles and I absolutely love it. I have a lot of people that tell me that I'm nuts to like snakes. I have even been told that snakes deserve to be dead rather than alive. That comment completely floored me because snakes aren't here to hurt us, they're here to help us. And I wish more people realized how cool snakes are.…

CEDAR FALLS IS ROCKING IN CHAPEL HILL

Thanks to a bunch of boyscouts and other teen volunteers, Cedar Falls Park has its hiking trails marked appropriately. We pulled out 26 old posts and remarked the trails with Rhino marking system.  It looks great.  You can drive a Mack Truck over the sign posts, and they still stand straight and mighty.  The posts were pulled out using a lever system and physics  - an 8 foot post as a lever, 3 small cinder blocks as a fulcrum and a board to catch the lip of the post.  These posts had been in…

Bottled Water

Tap water is found to be just as clean as bottled water, tastier, and less expensive.Plastics bottle production uses extreme amounts of oil (enough to power thousands of cars per year), pollution, etc. to produce a bottle only lasting momentarily. This bottle is then discarded and left not decomposing for thousands of years. Besides boycotting the companies playing us in this hoax, what else do you suggest we do to stop this scam?What methods of boycott can be proven by documents?How raise…See More
