Check out a few more links I found or rediscovered since posting yesterday’s blog piece…

  • Planet in Peril from CNN, a series on how climate change and other ecological concerns are affecting the world.
  • Care2.com is a social networking site with many places you can explore for ideas on ecologically sound living. Email groups, networking lists, and links to other sites that have advice and products.
  • New Dream is another site that has good information and resources to help you discover and maintain a more sustainable lifestyle.

And here is an article from yesterday’s New York Times that underlines the urgency we ought to all feel… click on the quote to get to the remainder:

ATLANTA, Oct. 15 — For the first time in more than 100 years, much of the Southeast has reached the most severe category of drought, climatologists said Monday, creating an emergency so serious that some cities are just months away from running out of water.

Now, I don’t know about the water cycles, historic or in earth-time, but this is not the only city that is facing major climate-related environmental challenges. Whether this particular drought is caused by human action or natural cycles, it highlights our need to conserve resources whenever possible, and to not out-build the land’s ability to support us!
