I am totally in love with this earth we humans live on. My relationship with Mother Earth is a spiritual and emotional love affair. In our house, we do everything we possibly can to change our habits so that we are living in synchronicity with the energy of Mother Earth. We respect her. We revere her. We try to protect her. If we choose not to respect our environment, it is at our own peril
Climate change is here now. Climate change impacts each and every one of our families. We, the people of this earth, get it. We live with the smog. We live with the pollution. We live with the more frequently devastating storms such as Katrina. My question is why then, in a democratic society, do our politicians not get it? It’s because we keep on voting in members of parliament that do not listen to us. We, the people, are responsible for voting those politicians in. Both Canada and the United States soon go to the polls. Who are you going to choose to represent you? Someone who also is concerned about the earth or someone who does not get that the economy of our nation, the economy of the world is directly tied into going Green and paying attention to the environment as the first most important thing. Everything related to humans revolves around the earth. Please see this link! http://stephenleahy.wordpress.com/2008/09/27/vote-for-the-green-economy/
If you want a quality of life for your children, your grandchildren and yourself now and in the future, then you simply must do the right thing and vote strategically for a greener planet. I believe we are each Earth Angels. It is up to us what we expect and indeed demand from our government officials. If they don’t connect the dots that everything we do impacts Earth’s entire eco-system, then we have to connect those dots for them by our vote. The Power of One Person! The Power of One Vote is immense when added to all the other Earth Angels who sincerely care about the future for their kids and families. We mothers and fathers must exercise our power by voting on election day. http://www.voteforenvironment.ca/
In reading an article put out by the Pembina Institute, a non-partisan sustainable energy think tank, they suggest that Canada has been singled out as being less than forward thinking in Canada’s plan to tackle environmental issues. See the link here: http://wwwpembina.org/pub/1705. Actually our Canadian track record is the worst of all G8 countries.
As individuals we are doing a lot.
As a Canadian nation we are doing squat.
Canada has never had a government
that truly made global warming a priority;
But Canadians have never been more concerned about protecting our planet.
According to the article I cited here are their results based on 10 criteria.
Greens scored well.
Liberals and NDP had mixed reviews.
Conservative environmental plan is poor.
Therefore vote ABC [anything but Conservative!]
So what can you do? Here is our Earth Angel Voting Plan! These people are under-represented in the polls:
- Ensure 5 women friends go out and vote for the Earth.
- Ensure 5 people ages 18 -35 go out and vote for the Earth.
- Make this discussion a priority around our Thanksgiving weekend.
- Women exercise your power as a wife, a mother and a caregiver!
It is time for a change. It is time for transformation. It is time we cared enough to give this planet we live on the best we have to offer. That best happens to be our vote. You have the Power to encourage others to make their vote matter! Earth Angel Blessings to you!
“In times of change, learners inherit the earth,
while the learned find themselves
beautifully equipped to deal with a world
that no longer exists.”
