I love this planet The environment I hold dear I say no to Oil I say no to Plastic I say no to Garbage I say NO NO NO to carbon Oh the trees breathe carbon? I will have to look into that Ted! I say no to meat Those animals are carbon monsters We all should hug this planet Preserve this global biosphere for our children dear You all must cut back All of you You may not pick and chose What fits your fancy No more vacations away for you No more cars No more planes No more Computers or high speed trains No more deodorant It’s all passe Clean air is my right, so all of you stop I shall preach to you this, day in and out I shall scold you for polluting about I shall travel the globe, by air you see To warn you all of the carbon to be I need to fly, my time is important My family comes first, but that’s only me You must make sacrifice All of you there I spend your Carbon credits Flying in the air!!! Yours truly Pascal Husting Green Peace One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives, Pascal Hunting commutes 400 kilometers each way to work by plane, the environmental group has admitted. The flights, costing about $365 return, are paid by Greenpeace, even though it campaigns to cut air travel, arguing that the growth in flying “is ruining our chances of stopping dangerous climate change.” Notes: Of course I am for the environment, who isn’t? Time to stop blaming big corporations and even governments, even though they should do more, here’s a novel idea, if you don’t use it, they will go bankrupt trying to sell it! As for Pollution, if you are having a heart attack, a bandage on your thumb doesn’t do a bit of good. Solutions are complex and not as black and white as some make you to believe.

Dude I shall give you a seven on your wonderful message, and another 7 for your great poem, and one more seven for the poet who wrote this truth at the bottom of this page for never has a truer word ever been written than would you've spoken at the bottom of your poem. If we would stop so much waste and actually stopped blaming the other guy the world would be a better place. And I also wish those corporate fools would practice what they preach, but that is not likely to happen. cheri

Saving the earth must start from our willingness to preserve it's beauty.:) discipline of just putting our trash in their right places.. Shame that even this simple act some educated doesn't do this... We can never stop the arising need for oil or others however.. I do hope that their will be inventions to counteract the bad effects.. Recycling! And being resourceful.. I like that some uses paper bag instead of plastic bags and I too by my own way try to do this..:) reality write:)! Awesome Art!

Good work, Arthur. I believe you one hundred per-cent. But I can't see things changing soon. The oil giants won't allow it. Money talks. All we can do is our best however small that is. Regards, Colin.

The oil giants wouldn't have anything to sell if no one consumed it!!! Stop the demand, and the supply goes away! In this case the little guy has all the power!
