Earth Day gets bigger every year. April 22, 2009 celebrated “The Green Generation.” It brings to mind how fragile our home planet is and how much we are tied to the waters of the ocean and to the land. The oceans are home to our cousins the whales and our friends the dolphins. These are the Green Generation’s core principles:

  • A carbon-free future based on renewable energy that will end our common dependency on fossil fuels, including coal.
  • An individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.
  • Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.

Here are a few related links sent by my regular contributors:
