Earth is Real 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Winner!

Al Gore is sharing the Nobel Peace Prize with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

They are being recognized . . .
for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.

Ever Wonder What the World Would be
Like if Al Gore Had Become President?

This we know. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth.
This we know.

All things are connected like the blood which unites one family.
All things are connected.

Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the Sons of the earth.
Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

Chief Seattle

I disagree that we belong to the Earth. We have dominion over it. We should, however, husband it, rather than use it like a wh*re.

Matthew Anton said...

of course we belong to the Earth. We are Earthlings ;). needs to get more publicity. Whether your hardcore environmentalist, or casual you realize we have one planet to live on..for now at least
