Happy Earth Day!

Whether you're afraid of the oceans rising in the next century, think climate change is a hoax, or just want clean air for your kids, I think that it's hard to deny that humans must use resources wisely in a time of population growth and increasing quality of life. For me, Earth Day is about realizing the need for humans to work in synergy with our home.  Resources are not unlimited and there is clear evidence of man-made pollution and adverse health effects in urban areas. Our current way of life, especially in the United States, is not sustainable.

Sustainability is my theme for 2014, and I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm eating mostly plant-based, taking public transportation when I can, and trying to make the case for nuclear energy's role in sustainable development. Read my post today on #Atoms4Earth. You can design your life to take only what you need instead of abusing resources. Earth Day is about celebrating our life on Earth and educating ourselves on how to preserve our only home.

How are you celebrating Earth Day?


  1. I always feel like I'm at a constant battle to maintain synergy with my lifestyle and myself. It's something that I'm trying to do right now, and as a result, I'm in the midst of a major purge/reduction.

  2. Me too! I'm purging as well but what is really motivating me is that I'm moving abroad and have to pack into 2 suitcases.


What do you think?
