THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Consider every day Earth Day

To celebrate nature and our dependence on her is to celebrate Earth Day. Our atmosphere, oceans and geology of rocks and soils interact to give the most absolutely perfectly balanced climate for life to flourish so fantastically, so unimaginably beautifully.

Billions of humans, by burning billions of gigatons the ancient fossil fuels oil, natural gas and coal, have destroyed this balance as seen by new chaotic weather patterns. Stop burning fossil fuels and restore the balance. Thousands of scientific studies show it is much later to save this balance than we are being told.

Study Nature's Laws, we may not escape these laws, but we can work with them.
