EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

THE BIGGEST LOSER 

THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE BELONGS TO HIM NOT THE POPULAR VOTE

There was no landslide win!

There’s no mandate!

See what you have done?

Donald Trump, Loser-in-Chief
Our next president cannot stand that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote – and America will suffer for it

Donald Trump lost the vote for president by well over two-and-a-half million votes and counting, and it’s driving him out of his mind. Because our odd electoral system gives more weight to voters in small, rural, mostly white states, the loser of this year’s popular vote will take the oath of office on January 20th.

‘The electoral college was actually put in place, in large part, to prevent someone like Donald Trump from becoming president. While Republicans have tried spinning Trump’s electoral college win as some sort of “mandate” or “statement from the American people” – it’s neither. Ignoring for a moment the fact that there are questions about voting irregularities in three key states that some think might have helped Trump win, when you get right down to it, there was no “massive wave of support” that propelled Trump to victory.

Even if you take just those three states in question (Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin), here are the rough estimates of Trump’s vote-count lead in each of those states:

Pennsylvania: 68k

Michigan: 11k

Wisconsin: 27k

Right there, If you flip those three states, Hillary Clinton’s our next president instead of Donald Trump.

Right now, Clinton leads in the overall popular vote by around 2.5 million votes – a lead that’s expected to reach anywhere between 3-4 million once all the votes are counted.

That would literally make Trump the biggest loser ever “elected” president in our nation’s history.

bline
Essentially, he’ll become our next president because of pockets of angry voters in a handful of states who were stirred up into an irrational frenzy by a candidate who ran on a lot of policies that were unconstitutional.

Google Doodle celebrates ‘Little House’ author Laura Ingalls Wilder’s 148th birthday

TODAY Google celebrates the 148th birthday of ‘Little House on the Prairie‘ author Laura Ingalls Wilder, with a doodle on its homepage to commemorate the occasion.

Published 9:28, Sat, February 7, 2015

By JOSHUA FORD

On February 7, 1867, Laura was born in a log cabin near Pepin, Wisconsin to parents Charles and Caroline – she was one of five children which later became four after the death of her younger brother at just nine months.

Growing up, Laura and her pioneer family would continuously move from one Midwestern town to the next, moving from Wisconsin to Walnut Grove, Minnesota in 1874 – this became the setting of the Little House on the Prairie television show from 1974 – 1982, a show based on Laura Wilder’s own life.

Having moved so often, Laura and her siblings would teach themselves and each other attending local schools where and when they could.

Laura decided to become a teacher, and in 1882, passed the test to obtain her teaching certificate, she then signed on to teach 12 miles from her parents’ home at just 15.

Family friend Almanzo Wilder was often sent to pick Laura up and bring her home for weekend visits, over the course of their rides home – the two fell in love and were married on August 25, 1885 in South Dakota.

Laura later quit teaching to raise children and help Almanzo work on the firm. She gave birth to her daughter Rose the year after she and Almanzo were married, she gave birth to a son three years later in 1889, only to have him pass away tragically within a month of his birth.

Soon after this, Almanzo contracted diphtheria and was partially paralyzed, the Wilders’ home was burned to the ground in 1890.

The Wilders’ bought a 200-acre farm in 1894 in Missouri, which later became known as Rocky Ridge Farm, it was here the Wilders built a farmhouse, raised livestock, and did all of their own farm work.

The Wilder’s daughter Rose grew up to become a reporter for the San Francisco Bulletin in the 1910s, she encouraged her mother to write about her childhood.

Laura’s first attempt at her autobiography ‘Pioneer Girl‘ was rejected by publishers, however, she went on to publish Little House in the Big Woods in 1932 – a recant on her life in Pepin, Wisconsin and the memorable places she’d lived, Wilder completed the last book in the ‘Little House‘ series in 1943 at the age of 76.

Laura’s husband Almanzo died in 1949, she stayed at their home on Rocky Ridge before dying eight years later on February 10, 1957.

Following the death of her mother, Rose edited and published several posthumous works based on her mother’s diary and incomplete manuscripts.
