Definitely more concerned about the living people than the dead ones I might come across there. Though I respect their place of rest, it is full of life. Almost every tree there is meticulously labeled to appreciate what kind it is.

You can view the global map to see find a location near you!

I found one near me, the Osamequin Wildlife Refuge
choosing to bicycle about an hour away south to help clean up a wildlife reserve. In the meantime, people further south will be dealing with cleanup after the hurricane.

I am looking forward to it. I hope you all can join in wherever you are!

Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice: USA Highlight Photos
350.org writes:
“On September 8, 2018, more than 30,000 people rose up for climate action, jobs, and justice in San Francisco — alongside more than 250,000 people in more than 90 countries around the world. We rose to demand our elected officials at all levels of government, everywhere step up and join us in building the just, bold climate solutions people and the planet need. And it was incredible. Check out some of the best photos from Rise actions in San Francisco and across the US here. (Photo credits: Survival Media Agency, unless otherwise noted.) Check out even more of the best photos from all over the world.

Why? Because we share this planet.

Go out into the streets and participate.

All of this is preceding the Global Climate Action Summit

We humans produce noise pollution constantly: beeping cars to lock them, revving motors, sitting in cars with engines idling contributing to rising CO2 levels.

Unaware, uneducated, uninformed, peoples habits collectively are damaging the planet and affecting other animals’ habitats.

I will be dead in 50 years, but your children and their children will not.

What exactly do you want them to inherit? A completely deforested, paved planet with only a hint of other life forms other than humans? The lack of humans to realize how their independent actions contribute collectively to the destruction of the earth and the habitats of other creatures is beyond nearsighted. It is reprehensible. I have said everything I have wanted to say in previous blogs. I have pointed to other writers such as George Monbiot Incompetence By Design, who tells the truth.

We are not here on this planet to buy and build. There’s something way more delightful: creating, art, music, storytelling and community.

We opted in to this life style, we can opt out and demonstrate a better way.
