Earth Day: like a day of mourning

As Earth Day is marked in many nations it seems meaningless to some when few effective actions are seriously taken by industry and government to stem the growing tide of environmental degradation. The collapse of the bio-sphere is no longer wild speculation. Science confirms climatic disruption and seemingly endless sources of pollution are endangering all life on planet Earth. Issues like bio-diversity, forest health, and ecologically sound transportation, to name but a few, go largely unaddressed. Attempts to change business as usual on Mother Earth continue, however it is a daunting struggle.

Adding insult to injury, the largest polluting nation on Earth, is represented by an administration with the worst environmental record in history. Today, George Bush visited the state of Maine in the U.S. in an attempt to "greenwash" his regime's horrendous environmental record. He was, of course, met with protests. Meanwhile, back in Washington, DC activists held a press conference during the IMF/World Bank actions condemning the Bush regime's policies. While on the West Coast the ELF has reportedly trashed some gas guzzling SUVs for Earth Day.
