     We Don't Have Muc...

     We don't have much longer left with our beautiful planet and we need to do everything we can to preserve it. Stop littering, stop cutting down trees, and most of all stop putting more toxic greenhouse gases into the air by using automobiles too much. Walk to work or find...

    There are more than plenty of open spaces in Iowa. So why do the people in charge of things like state parks think that they need to tear down trees that have been there for a long time, and replace it with more boring prairie-type terrain? This area was originally, a very long...

    Do We Really Need Another...

    Condominium Complex, parking lot, Outback Steakhouse, or Holiday Inn Express?  I hate seeing trees taken down, marshes, swamps and wetlands filled in, animals driven from their homes, all in the name of progress.  I think there is a lot to be said for the less is more...

    Not Just Trees...

    I hate it when people step on ants and millipedes/centipedes... i know some kids love to do things like that. Sometimes, sweet innocent young things like kids can be so cruel. I can never get used to people stepping on snails... intentionally/unintentionally.

    I Do More Than Flinch

    I get pissed off.  The place I live used to have a lot of wild places.  Stores, plazas and restaurants have taken over. I was so mad when Wal-Mart tore down a wooded area to build their store, that I refuse to shop there.  Overreaction?  Maybe. ...

    I hate to see movies or tv shows, where they cut down trees! I feel bad for the trees! And it does make me flinch! Like in one of my favorite movies, Lord Of The Rings... well, in one of the triology, the bad guys cut down trees to make Orcs. I kept whinning and gasping, "...

    The Rain Forest

    The Screams of the Trees....

    Yes,I can hear trees scream as they are being cut down. Many trees nearby will scream in unison and grief. It is horrible. I can't stand it. Humankind goes as does the wildlife and the rivers...

    I Agree!

    I live in Arizona and they are trying to tear down a lot of the desert to put up some weird home thing. I hate it and they are going to kill a lot of the animals that live in that area.

    I Guess I Must Be A Tree Hugger

    I used to live in the Pacific Northwest and camped and fished all over the region. One of the saddest things I've ever seen is areas where timber companies had done clear cut logging. The practice of clear cutting is where they cut roads into the mountainsides then literally...

    I took this photo last night. The location is a couple of miles from my hut. My daughter and I drove to see how close the fire was.  I was much dismayed when I saw the whole mountainside was flaming. This photo was taken across a canyon and about a...
