New Eco-resources; Volunteering & show update

-- Quote of the Day --

…Once {a person has} learned that one of their close community of friends or one of their loved ones has been diagnosed with a potential devastating diagnosis such as cancer - there is a real powerful way to be about it. Rather than walking into that space of ‘I don’t know what to do; I don’t know what to say; I am helpless and surrounded by uncertainty’ - there is a real powerful way to be. And those people need to find the power to overcome those normal ways of being, which are helplessness and uncertainty… and to understand that even if they say nothing but just their simply presence alone in the house with the person after they have been diagnosed is a tremendous support. No one should underestimate of the extent that they can positively affect a person’s life simply with their presence…

- www.stopglobalwarming.org: "The Stop Global Warming Virtual March is a non-partisan effort to bring citizens together to declare that global warming is here now and that it is time to demand solutions. Global warming is the most urgent issue of our time, and while the problem is of worldwide significance, we recognize that the United States is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, responsible for 40% of the industrialized world's emissions, and doing the least about it. The necessary first step must be to encourage Americans to take action. This online grassroots movement is about change -- as individuals, as a country, and as a global community. We are all contributors to global warming and must all be part of the solution. With the support of leading scientists, political, religious, cultural and business leaders, the Virtual March is creating one, loud collective voice that will be heard around the world. By spreading the word, we are building a movement to stop global warming. " Find tips for classroom activities, individual and group actions towards a healthier planet.
