I'm just sick about the shape our planet is in and our Western attitude of indifference to the havoc our 'Culture of Excess and Consumerism' has created on a global scale. How can we stop ourselves from committing Environmental Suicide? Please stop excess consumption on all levels; personally, corporately and in all spheres of government. We need to go back to the 3 R's our Grandparents lived by: REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE. And the motto our Great-Grandparents lived by: 1. Use it up, 2. Wear it out. 3. Make do, 4.Do without. We are over using our planet's resources at a rate that is not sustainable. Please, please think this through. Join the Save the Niger Delta movement on Facebook today.

Medical researchers are now uncovering clues that appear to link some cases of ‪#‎ALS‬ or ‪#‎LouGehrigs‬ Disease to people’s proximity to lakes and coastal waters. They suspect that toxic blooms of blue-green algae – which are becoming more common worldwide – may play a role. EHN story by +Lindsey Konkel 
December 11, 2014. For 28 years, Bill Gilmore lived in a New Hampshire beach town, where he surfed and kayaked. “I've been in water my whole life,” he said. “Before the ocean, it was lakes. I've been a water rat since I was four.” ...

Media Note: "How does exaggeration make its way into health news? Petroc Sumner, a professor of psychology at Cardiff University in Wales, and colleagues published some important research in the journal BMJ that found that a majority of exaggeration in health stories was traced not to the news outlet, but to the press release—the statement issued by the university's publicity department."

You’d think the filing of a class action lawsuit last month by the families of the 78 coal miners killed in the 1968 Farmington, West Virginia, mine explosion would serve as a painful reminder that coal isn’t clean. But familiar headlines about “clean coal” endeavors continue to roll off the newswires. Jeff Biggers, +Al Jazeera English.

Welcome to #OurCrazyWorld.
The #Sun produce more energy in a day than what #America use in a year.
Drilling for #Oil is becoming more dangerous,expensive to explore ,polluting the environment and cause war.
As population and technology increase,exploring space and other planets we will use more and more energy.At the rate that we use energy,the energy that trap in the #earth will run out over a long term but the #sun energy is infinite and also cleaner and safer.
We must choose abundance over scarcity or kill each other for the little we see.
#MUSMEKIT,It's All In You.
