-- Amazing Eco-News --

The 2050 Japan Low-Carbon Society, which is supported by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment’s Global Environmental Research Fund and the National Institute for Environmental Studies has released some interesting information revealed by a project they took on.

The project’s proposals include “utilization of solar heat and natural wind in homes and offices, pedestrian friendly city design, promotion of seasonal and local agricultural products, labeling to show carbon dioxide emissions on products, and development of next-generation fuels.” The study reveals that the reduction ratio based on the levels in the year 2000 are – “ 13 to 15 percent for industry, 21 to 24 percent for residential and commercial sectors, 19 to 20 percent for transportation, and 35 to 41percent for energy conversion.”

Isn’t it amazing how seemingly small actions by individuals and communities can have such a huge impact on the health of our planet?

There is a city in Japan known as Nishinomiya – which has recently announced a plan to install solar panels in every single school in their city as well as proposed constructions of green walls in public facilities. What a fantastic step towards a truly green planet.

The city is not only inspiring its citizens and others by showing it can be done, stimulating their economy by supporting green-collar jobs and providing schools with a way to extend their budget - they are also setting a wonderful example for other communities to follow.


-- Quote of the Day --

“…A lot of us don’t realize the far reaching ramifications of thought… …If we don’t see ourselves in a constant state in perfection, we are seeing is imperfection and our cellular structure will then resonate imperfection and we don’t realize the buildup in our bodies… …the thing between our ears literally creates the directions for our lives yet most of us have no idea what that thing is doing. So when we are talking about consciousness, we are talking about being aware of the mind and what it is doing. …Do you know you – or – do you know you for who you judge you to be? We cannot know who we are as long as we judge ourselves. …One of my teachers and I were walking along and he looked over at me to me and said ‘Young Man, what if what you call your god heard every thought you that you had and considered that thought as a request to give you that experience - would you change the way that you think?’ …I learned that if every thought had that power, that I should be very cautious of what I am thinking…”
