Me and My Earthly Ignorance
It's Earth Day and I was going to write a diary on a topic that is not really my area of expertise: The environment. Thankfully, and to spare you of my ignorance on this subject, Kos at dKos pointed out that there a plethora of information flowing across their site today in their Earth Day Blogathon:
It's Earth Day! I know, every day should be Earth Day, but this is still an opportune time to highlight some of the great eco-diarists on Daily Kos.
Welcome to the official Earth Day @ DKos Blogathon Mothership diary. I will keep an updated table with links to eco-diaries beneath the fold. Feel free to treat this as an Earth Day open thread, and pimp any diaries that I may have missed.
I have also compiled some good, bad, and ugly environmental factoids that caught my eye. I hope they give some insight into the ecological dangers we still face on our Pale Blue Dot this Earth Day, in 2010.
I always try to do the best I can in helping the to keep the third rock from the sun from becoming a a massive and uninhabitable dirt ball in space. I recycle anything I can into that big blue can they give us. I wish it took more. I had done what I thought was the responsible thing to do and changed all of my old incandescent light bulbs to fluorescent ones and am now waiting for them to burn out before I carefully dispose of them and at which time I hope to replace them with mercury free LED lights.
There are so many things we can all try to do but as my light escapades have proven, I really have a lot to learn on this. And we can all, always, try to do more.
Enjoy some Carl Sagan talking about the Pale Blue Dot below the fold.
