Bad Acid Trip – Beef Moo

A little story about earth.

“Too many people in such a small place.
Over-population by this human race
They beat you down, say ‘Learn your place
As part of a statistic called the human race
Fat rats breed us toward our own annihilation
Hiding ideas that’d be our salvation”

Bad Acid Trip is the best. I want them to come to Canada!!!

Contamination of Country Food + MEGA DAM

I am in class learning about the current issues connected to Indigenous Enviornmental Studies and I couldn’t help myself from laughing at HEAVY METALS in our soil deposited by MEGA DAMS.

I’ve decided someone needs to start an Eco-Metal band called MEGA DAM.
Start a band with me or steal my idea and show me what you do with it.* This is me being super-serious.

* better give me cred, yo.

Today in 1948: Suffocation by Smog

“Hey kid, want a smog?”
“No thanks, I quit in January. That stuff is bad for your lungs.”

1948 DONORA SMOG:

In Donora, Pennsylvania during the last week of October 1948, a combination of fog and smoke blanketed the town and trapped air.  Days passed. Air pollutants increased and the smog got worse, causing a decrease in visibility…. (more…)

Air Pollution

… is the presence of chemicals, gases and particles in the air in amounts that damage the environment and cause harm to humans and other living things.

The Boat and the Bomb (2005) – Full Length Documentary

A documentary about the sinking of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior in 1985 on their way to protest France’s nuclear testing in the Pacific.

I am doing a presentation about this historic event in class today. I thought it may be important to know some of the history behind groups like Greenpeace and their efforts for a better, more sustainable world.
