In the Philadelphia area many people put in the extra effort to pick up litter or plant some trees on Earth Day. It's a good start, but on this day, I'm more full of questions than answers. I hope you'll help me by sharing your thoughts and questions of your own. Here are a few of mine:
What is the most effective thing that you think we can do for the planet with the limited time and energy we possess as individuals?
What will it take to build a greater level of Earth-awareness in our communities?
How can we hold government institutions and big business to a higher environmental standard?
What worries you?
What gives you hope?
I know that sometimes when I tell people that these things live in my brain everyday, they look at me like I have three heads. But one thing I do know is that in many ways we're losing touch with nature. It's a worry.
I wonder how we can possibly as a society care about protecting something that we only experience on a limited basis. What's the answer? I'd love to know. Let's start a conversation on these issues. Thank you!
