    I have just found out

    that there has been a deliberate fuel spill in the lake of a park I used to be so fond of, and I am very saddened and annoyed by that. That park was where I grew up and found my love for nature, and I adored walking around the lake and seeing all of the birds; warblers...

    I don't give a damn about the economy.

    Without the environment we have nothing. I'm a member the Green Party of Canada and believe that PM Stephen Harper is a bad man.

    I do what I can to conserve,

    recycle and reuse. It makes me sad to see deforestation, wildlife extinction, more development and less open spaces. I don't understand why humans control the population of all other animals, yet ignore the overpopulation of the most destructive, invasive species...US.

    I am a typical Norwegian,

    I care about our home, the Earth. We need to get about taking better care of her because there's no where else we can live. Some might think what does it matter I will be dead by the time I'm eighty, but what about your children, your grandchildren? Do you really think they...

    Humanity is too concerned with the well being

    of the individual, one person. But we seem to often forget that without a clean environment humanity will not survive. We need to learn to prioritize.

    We only have one Planet Earth.

    We are its caretakers and should strive to retain it as it was intended. I fear for future generations. What legacy are we leaving?

    I care about the environment!

    My care started at birth.

    I grew up on a farm specializing in timber. A harvest of 1/3-1/2 of the trees happened once every 15 years and we replant naturally. Mother Nature knows how to do it. We intervened as little as possible, unless a tree was sick or clearing underbrush so the trees can thrive. Now...

    I wish people would stop cutting down trees

    for Christmas. It so unnecessary and selfish. We should nurture nature not destroy it.
