Yes I think it's past the tipping point already. That article is more blah, blah...it could be done, but the people who have the money don't fucking care. That's the truth and all this talk about "working together" is bullshit.

When trees get cut down, there's less water. When there's less water, there are fewer fish. And because the fish eat mosquitoes, there are more insects buzzing around — and people are more susceptible to dengue fever and malaria.

On World Health Day, this video shows you firsthand ... people NEED nature to thrive. http://bit.ly/1jnV7tO

It's International Women's Day. Let's give women the recognition and support they deserve. And let's honor the inspiring women all among us, like our friend & colleague Nan Hauser, and the amazing work they do.
