April 22 EARTH DAY Eistein once said, "If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than 4 years to live. No more bees, no more pollination...no more men!" He said it to a few friends. The friends laughed. He did not. Now it turns out there are fewer & fewer bees in the world. Today on Earth Day, let us acknowledge that this is not happening due to God's will or the Devil's curse, but rather because of: the murder of natural forests & the proliferation of farmed ones; monocropping for export, which limits plant diversity; poisons that kill pests & with them everything else; chemical fertilizers that fertilize money & sterilize the soil; & radiation from the machines people buy because advertising tills us to. --- Eduardo Galeano, Children of the Days: A Calendar of Human History http://tinyurl.com/zqmvdgv http://childrenofthedays.com/
