Wow, just found this group. Ruth, you've been busy! Now I see where you have been hiding out! I'll have to look around quite a bit it seems.

This would make a great bumper sticker.

I sent the washing machine & petrochemical clothing video to a friend who engineers metropolitan water purification systems asking him if that type of pollutant is taken into consideration when designing systems. It was the first time he heard about it. That video is a good reason to only buy cotton, wool, silk, or hemp clothing. I don't understand why lama, alpaca, and other native species aren't used more for wool. I wonder what happens to the hides from all the cows that are slaughtered. Is it ground up and used as animal feed?

That washing machine thing is amazing! It's interesting because I used to be a vegan and a vegetarian and used to used to not use any animal clothing. A few years ago it dawned on me... (other than cotton and hemp) if I'm not wearing animal, I'm wearing petrochemical! That's when I reorientated my clothing purchasing to good that have durability, and have completely moved away from synthetics (they're horrible against the skin anyway).

But I had not expected this one. Wearing petrochemical clothing I think is a great ethical challenge for the remaining animal-rights vegerarians/vegans out there. Many ex-vegetarians such as myself have come to realise that eliminating animals from our diets is not as valid as reducing animal consumption, and making sure our purchasing is of durable goods.

99% Spring Training for non-violent direct action protests will be from April 9 - April 15. Along with the economy, climate change, animal rights, safe food, and safe water are concerns of people who will be attending the training. Classes will be held throughout the U.S. Click here to see if there is a training near you and RSVP. The first link takes you to the original discussion. I cross posted because I think environmentalists will be interested in the training.

You can thank George W. Bush for dropping "To understand and protect the home planet." from NASA's Mission Statement. The new mission statement was revised without consulting the agency... No discussion or public announcement of any kind was made.

I was just looking at NASA website a few minutes ago... helping earth is really only the sur-catch. A change of mission statement would be needed, to place earth study as a priority.

Here's James Hansen at a 17 minute TED talk.

The first line of NASA's mission statement used to be "To understand and protect the home planet." That line was deleted after Mr. Hansen began giving speeches about climate change.
