“One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, ‘What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?'”Rachel Carson (05/27/1907 – 04/14/1964), from her pivotal book Silent Spring.

Food for thought as this new administration dismantles policies meant to:
– ensure people have air, water & food free of harmful contamination that erodes their quality of life
– help employ hundreds of thousands of those people by supporting the rapidly growing renewable energy sector that will not only do less harm to the environment but…
– increase our energy independence & enhance our national security by reducing our reliance on foreign sources of fuel
– and ultimately protect the world around us…not just for ourselves, but for future generations
