Hi Everyone!

I wanted to let you know about another site I've been working with.  It's called GreenEarthCity. is about ultimately creating a net-zero energy use city that DOESN'T revolve around the car.  

GreenEarthCity seeks people who are interested in creating a different paradigm centered around quality of life, peace, and harmony with the Earth.  Living with the Earth and not apart from it.  One thing we've all noticed is that in our hustle and bustle of life we often forget that we live on an Island. This Island is the only home we have. There is no alternative Earth or place to go that will support us.  For those of us that have children, we realize that to have a viable future for them we will have to change our behavior.  Perhaps the greatest challenge we face today is going from a traditional consumer based economy to something that doesn't presume that the Earth's resources are limitless.

GreenEarthCity is about dialogue.  How do we move towards an economic system that considers quality of life and not quantity.  It's pretty obvious that money has become like a GOD to most people.  How do we transition to a system that values economic and social justice from one that considers people a commodity?

In these time of Global Environmental turmoil we'll have to work fast and create positive change now.   I call upon each and every person to look deep within to make those personal changes that will in turn create true sustainability.

True sustainability? What is that?  In my mind it looks like creating products that don't pollute, organic farming, localism or being a locavore, understanding ecosystems, eliminating pesticides and herbicides, creating biodiversity, transitioning from fossil fuels, redefining what wealth is, and many other inclusive ideas.

As we move towards a this different paradigm it will be important to keep sight of the details AND the big picture.  Think globally and act locally, an old saying as relevant as ever.

This Economy is hurting

Our economy is in a tank but is it such a bad deal?  Yes and no I would argue.   Yes because people are being forced to work for less, losing their homes and generally making do with less.  No because if we use our heads we can rise above this with change.  We can learn to work together and become self sufficient.  We can promote true democracy for the masses.

First, recognizing that we live in a world of finite natural resources that are currently being used at an unsustainable rate. Second, we realize that local economies are a solution and that includes farmers markets, small businesses, and home enterprises.  Third, we distribute wealth fairly in a way that promotes economic justice.

Finally, recognizing that a gov't of the people and for the people starts with fair representation.   In order to have that we'll have to get rid of corporate personhood, and electoral college.

It can happen but it will start with you.

The fraudulent war on Cancer

It's a simple but powerful statement.  There is no real war on cancer ..the 'war' on cancer is simply a front for spending more money on 'cures' that rarely work while providing little in the way towards preventing or even really curing cancer.  Even the great American Cancer society has little to offer in the way of cures and every year more people end up with some form of cancer many of which will end up killing them.

One of the greatest hypocrisies that exist today is this so-called 'war' on cancer!  Spending millions upon millions on 'cures' YET WE CONTINUE TO RELEASE TONS UPON TONS OF CANCER CAUSING CHEMICALS. Not only do they get released but they also end up in consumer products!  It's a no brainer.  The FDA is NOT protecting you.  You're a fool if you think so. It's not uncommon for the very cancer causing companies to also make cancer fighting chemicals too.
Example 1:
David R. Bethune, president of Lederle Laboratories, a multinational pharmaceutical company and a division of American Cyanamid Company. Bethune is also vice president of American Cyanamid, which makes chemical fertilizers and herbicides while transforming itself into a full-fledged pharmaceutical company. In 1988, American Cyanamid introduced Novatrone, an anti-cancer drug. And in 1992, it announced that it would buy a majority of shares of Immunex, a cancer drug maker.

Example 2
Propylene glycol a know carcinogenic and toxin. Yet propylene glycol is probably THE most common ingredient found in personal-care items, such as make-up, hair products, lotions, after-shave, deodorants, mouthwashes, and toothpaste. (Check the labels of your favourite products!!) It is also the active component in antifreeze; and there is no difference between what’s used in industry and what you apply to your skin! Industry uses it to break down protein and cellular structure (what the skin is made of); it’s so strong that it can take barnacles off the bottom of boats.

The fact that our manufacturing process spews nasty cancer causing chemicals into the public and gets away from it is appalling.   Even worse is that they profit circle includes 'treatments' made by those self-same companies.

It's a pretty sad day when you've realized that we've been involuntarily used as guinea pigs in a massive outdoors lab experiment for the last sixty or so years.  Future generations will look at this as an age of colossal toxic contamination and will be spending years maybe even decades cleaning it up ..if it's even possible. In the meantime whenever you or someone you know is diagnosed with cancer you'll have to confess to the possibility that some company out there is playing god with our lives everytime they push another crappy poorly tested or falsified chemical upon the public.

Many companies will deny their culpability in causing cancer but when looked upon becomes fairly obvious that they are guilty.  Take flouride for instance.  Flouride is a toxic heavy metal yet it's in our water and tooth paste.  Why? Because it prevents tooth decay.  That is actually a myth and it's now know that flouride doesn't protect against tooth decay in the pits and cracks of teeth... yet flouride as a toxin is well known( it's just good business sense if you can resele

It's all about information.  Probably the best thing you can do for yourself and loved ones is to research using the internet or the library this subject. Once you start prepared to be shocked by the toxic shell game. Companies hide toxic chemicals in the water..get caught...move onto land..then air..then maybe your carpet or toothpaste.

So take some time and sign a intelligently and realize that the 'war' on cancer shall start with the very manufacturing process that creates it.
