Earth Day Ideas And Reflections

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Happy Earth Day !

What is the beat way to save the planet?

A solar focus for energy and World Peace. Why ?

Because a solar focus, is a bubble up energy source that everyone has at their fingertips, along with a great solar invention, say a device that filters dirty water into drinkable water and viola the planet is looking alot better.

THE SUN ! is accessible to everyone, what a gift worldwide it would be as water becomes more scarce and populations  grow.  This is just one way solar can and will save the planet.

The second bubble up process that can be at the fingertips of everyone across the globe, is a way a plan to bring world peace.

A system that any country or individual can access to resolve conflicts because no one wants to die or kill, they do so when their lives are unbearable personally.

Fighting, killing, surveillance, tossing hard-fought rights to the side during a crisis
will not keep us safe or help to create peace.  Systems such as our justice system, that tries to treat each individual fairly and equally will create peace, longterm and justice will prevail.

So, as we celebrate this opportunity to reflect on our luscious green globe let all of us think and offer our ideas on how we can save our planet for the next seven generations.

Quotes of note –

Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of coal and permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.

JIMMY CARTER, televised speech, Apr. 18, 1977


Ben Franklin said “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

There can be no peace in the world so long as a large proportion of the population lack the necessities of life and believe that a change of the political and economic system will make them available. World peace must be based on world plenty.
John Boyd Orr

Jimmy Carter at Lafayette College: America should stop engaging in war and work for peace

Calling America bull-like, former President Jimmy Carter told a crowd of 3,000 people today at Lafayette College that the country should stop detaining prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, end its drone program and work for peace.

“Almost constantly since World War II, our nation has been at war,” Carter said. “I would like our country in the future to have a reputation for peace — I think that’s a characteristic of a super power.”

The United States was once a human rights leader but is now violating 10 of the 30 articles in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, including the use of drones and imprisoning people without the right to due process, Carter said. He also said the country hasn’t had an environmental leader since former President George H.W. Bush.

“We need to stop and think what is there about America that can be improved,” he said. “I’m not criticizing America because I know America is the greatest nation on earth.”

Wednesday Night Flash Story (“Blonde and sweet,” Just take your coffee Sam, and next time, ask for cream and sugar will ya, please?”) For All The Workers Of The World.

( A serial flash story)

 

” BLACK “

 

” You have fifteen minutes,” Sandra said.  ” Before the soiree begins… then they will be all over us  like a monarch butterfly on a milkweed pod.”

Artell didn’t know who she feared most, the impending military brigade, or the strange ships gliding into the valley.  She scanned the area making sure to keep herself hidden.

The two largest ships were long and shaped like a tube, resting on legs that protruded from the craft.  Adjacent to them were three traditional looking saucers.  They were shaped like a mexican sombrero with pulsating lights of green and red circling counter-clockwise.  The last three ships were triangular with blue flashing lights skirting the lip of the ships.  Two of the triangular ships hovered above, while a third ship remained stuck.  Mild waves were being released from the base of the hovering ships, producing slight vibrations in the ship below.

Sandra pointed to the right side of the valley.  ” Look over there.”

Artell saw a group of figures.  Some were tall and thin with yellow skin, others had short bodies and small heads covered with blue-grey skin and gills with a reddish tinge.  The rest were similar to the creatures they encountered in the forest.  All were engaged in discussions.  She raised her camera and checked the adjustments.  The eyepiece slid against moist skin settling into her eye socket.  Searching for the best view, she stumbled over the rocks until she found an opening that encompassed the developing scene.

Artell lay on her abdomen and started filming.  The whirring of the camera matched the volume of thoughts that folded into her head.  Time was flickering  in and out of reality.  She thought deeply,  maybe for the first time in her life.  ‘ Would the human race be able to face the challenge, or was this the cusp of life as we know it?”  The camera whirred.

” Artell, let’s go.”

The thumping of boots against mud filled the air.

The camera kept filming.

Artell could hear her friend fighting and yelling.  The camera filmed.

Gloved hands grasped her shoulders.  Artell pushed the digital send button on the video. ‘ Neil will be getting quite a surprise when he opens his email,’   She thought as a cloud of black descended over her vision.

This Blog Of Mine – An Ode To My Blog / With A Little Help from Shakespeare

“A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”

 Blogging From The Heart/Mind

 

This other eden, demi=paradise,

This precious stone set in a silver sea of words,

This Blessed Plot,

This earth,

This realm of ideas,

This blog of mine -this little piece of the world.

 

I highly recommend that if you have something to say blog it, we need every blogger we can get to join the fight to become one world.

 

Note: The Original follows,

  

  Shakespeare on England

 This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in a silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
Feared by their breed and famous by their birth

 

[Richard II, 2.1, 40-51]
