Earth Hour and Twitter and Air America

As we get ready for Earth Hour 2009 --please make a powerful statement by powering down this Saturday, 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm -- I've been listening to Ron Reagan Jr. and Richard Greene speak about Twitter on Air America Radio. Ron is hesitant. Richard is diving in. Let's be adventurous and use Twitter as a positive organization and social tool, guys!

Richard Greene also interviewed someone from ElectromagneticHealth.org -- She made me more aware but the info gave me a headache. We are being bombarded by cell phone and wi-fi waves, especially here in NYC. Well, maybe we stopped one building in Queens Community Board 2 from hosting a rooftop of cell phone towers. We voted it down! (Did Bloomberg let 'em go ahead anyway. Must check with CB2 office.)

Irish Celtic Music

In the midst of birthday and St. Patrick's Day celebrations, I took some time for retrospection and created a playlist on YouTube. This is Irish music and/or Celtic music that speaks to my soul or perhaps my soul memory and feeds me, body, mind and spirit. Long -- with some deliberate repeats. Enjoy!

Olbermann: Blame for economic crisis goes beyond Washington

Keith Olbermann expounds on a report from Wall Street Watch which documents that much of the blame for our financial woes really reside with Wall Street who spent, indeed spends, billions to lobby politicians and in effect buy legislation. Under six minutes, please watch and then act for reform.

Earth Hour: March 28, 8:30-9:30 PM



VOTE EARTH! Watch, then go to EarthHour.org OR EarthHourUS.org to register for THIS year's Earth Hour, March 28, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm. Commit to turn off lights (and as much electricity as feasible) for just one hour to make a statement. Other action ideas are suggested including following EarthHour and EarthHourUS on Twitter and joining the FaceBook page(s). And like Earth Day making everyday Earthday, let's make every hour Earth Hour by saving as much electricity as possible and by going as green as possible.

P.S. New York City is not listed as a sponsor/supporter, sigh, though a number of US cities have joined this international effort. FYI, there is an alternate intertwined site, VoteEarth2009.org.
