earth

"That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar" every "supreme leader" every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there."

-Carl Sagan

 

ANTHROPOCENTRIC VALUES are destroying the biosphere

Human activity effects the Earth’s climate, land, oceans and biodiversity

“A revolutionary new phase of earth history, the Anthropocene, has been unleashed by human action, and the prospects for this blue sphere and the mass of humanity are not good. We had best start thinking in revolutionary terms about the forces turning the world upside down if we are to put brakes on the madness. A good place to begin is this book, whose remarkable authors bring together history and theory, politics and ecology, economy and culture, to force a deep look at the origins of global transformation. In short, the enemy to be met is not us, dear Pogo, but capitalism, whose unrelenting exploitation of (wo)man and nature is driving us all to the end(s) of the earth.”

-Richard Walker, professor emeritus of geography, University of California, Berkeley, and author of The Capitalist Imperative, The New Social Economy, The Conquest of Bread, and The Country in the City


 

The Last Words of the Honey Bees

Honey, our hive is built and ruled by women. Honey, we were once wild. Honey,look at the flowers. We raised them into artichoke, pepper, squash, and apple for you, Honey. You found our hive and renamed it colony or a factory of Yellow, Black, and Brown honey we are the silent workers who bring home your dinner, whether or not our Honey comes home. Home was the wild flower you pulled out to plant your White monoculture. Honey, we pollinate thirty acres of White apple trees to bring home one pound of honey, to bring home one pound of bodies. The poison in the pollen is poison in our colony is poison in your children. Honey, tell me: was your breakfast sweet? Honey, when this colony collapses into a pool of Yellow Black and Brown honey, the women are always the first to go. I close my wings and hit the ground. I open my wings and my colony drops dead. I close my wings and every flower at my funeral begins to grieve. Honey? Who will raise the flowers when we are gone? Honey, do you see our queen? She is next. And then the Earth, and you, Honey. Every drop of my Yellow Black & Brown is falling into a field of White. Honey, I'm home.  -Jess X. Chen

ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS


ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS


 

human behaviour, human nature, morality, ethics, whatever you would call it, we aim to change it. 

A lot of people may feel as if this task is near impossible, changing human nature. Human nature is not a set of fixed characteristics based on physiology. We are products of our cultural indoctrinations, religious dogmas, our intuitive selves and interpersonal relations. These ideas can not only be easily changed but made fluid. You are more than what you are.

Our self focused over consumptive behaviour is influenced by many affects. What do you think about when shopping for the necessities of life on planet earth? What decisions are made when travelling from here to there? Economics? Convenience? Scarcity? What about efficiency and waste, social or ecological impact? Its time to re-write some old programming, rethink how everything interrelates. Replacing our current attitudes of self importance with egalitarian values and an ecological consciousness is important to preserving the quality of life on earth for all that live here. You don’t need to be an activist to get started, all you need is a change in thought. Fellow human we challenge you to evolve with us.

 

"The belief in human superiority is an unjustified bias; we should be species impartial and egalitarian." -Paul Taylor

Humans are non-privileged members of the earth's community of life.

We share with other organisms requirements for life that are not totally under our control.  We have the same origin as other creatures and share affinity for them. The earth's life processes brought all of us into existence, humans are dependent on other forms of life; without them we would cease to exist.

“We are part of nature, a product of a long evolutionary journey. To some degree, we carry the ancient oceans in our blood. Our brains and nervous systems did not suddenly spring into existence without long antecedents in natural history. That which we most prize as integral to our humanity, our extraordinary capacity to think on complex conceptual levels, can be traced back to the nerve network of primitive invertebrates, the ganglia of a mollusk, the spinal cord of a fish, the brain of an amphibian, and the cerebral cortex of a primate.”
- Murray Bookchin, Defending the Earth
