Picture Says It All: “

Bumped into this excellent info-graphic the other day along with a great question/answer:

Daddy, why are there wars?   ‘Because some people are just plain evil, m’boy! Just plain evil.’

Complete post here. Hat tip to Curt Lindsay over at http://cantseetheforest.org/

While Americans complain about the price of gas, many other nations pay considerably more. If you look at some of the countries with the highest prices like Denmark, Germany and Norway for example, you might also notice that they have very strong economies, rate at the top of most development scales (personal well-being, economic well-being, environmental well-being), and are world leaders in renewable energy technologies. They’ve realized that using taxes from the sale of gasoline 1) sends the right price signal to consumers: ‘use less; use it efficiently’, 2) provides funds for the development of renewable energy (RE) technologies and RE markets. After all, renewable energy is clearly where the growth will be. Countries that understand this will have the strongest economies, based on growing technologies like RE, as opposed to countries like the US which are still stuck on maintaining old tech like low-mileage vehicles that burn dirty, finite resources. Thomas Friedman, in a recent OP-ED column, noting the Republican petrocheerleaders’ exhortations of ‘Drill, baby, drill!’, asks a good question:

‘Why would Republicans, the party of business, want to focus our country on breathing life into a 19th-century technology — fossil fuels — rather than giving birth to a 21st-century technology — renewable energy? As I have argued before, it reminds me of someone who, on the eve of the I.T. revolution — on the eve of PCs and the Internet — is pounding the table for America to make more I.B.M. typewriters and carbon paper. ‘Typewriters, baby, typewriters.’

It has been estimated that if Americans calculated the costs associated with foreign wars designed to secure ‘cheap’ oil, the actual costs, due to taxes spent on maintaining the military, are closer to $12 per gallon. But hardly anyone thinks of their tax return or how little they are getting for their money when they’re paying $4 at the pump. The war merchants would love to keep it that way. Some people are evil, just plain evil.

Political Victory!!

they are hard to come by it seems at times… but when they come it is time “to party
Karamu, fiesta, forever!!”

this is in regards to the NCLI legislation that i had written about earlier in a previous post. more money, in our society, too often means more legitimacy (especially when it comes to public financed bail outs of the private sector – don’t even get me started… just talk to bob barr)

yet i do believe in saying thank you, which is what i did when i learned that my congress people, at least the ones that represent the districts i am mostly concerned with (30th and 35th) voted for this legislation.

not as many students of color as i would like to see… maybe i should pull out my footage. but encouraging this news is, nonetheless…

Recycling same old lies…

hard to believe, i mean really hard… my comments on this farce are in response o this article on the homeroom’s site…

L.A. Unified’s waste not, want not plan: “

As halls of fame go, it’s not exactly Cooperstown. But preventing waste is a good thing, and L.A. Unified is going into the WasteWise Hall of Fame.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Solid Waste has selected L.A. Unified for its accomplishments over the last five years in waste reduction and recycling. The nation’s second-largest school district is to get the award at the 2008 WasteWise and National Partnership for Environmental Priorities Conference, Oct. 29-30, in Arlington, Va.

‘The district’s commitment to recycling helps educate children on the need to preserve our natural resources and reduce the environmental problems associated with disposal of wastes in landfills,’ Supt. David L. Brewer said.

The waste reduction and recycling programs at L.A. Unified include paper, yard clippings, aluminum cans, plastic and glass containers, and asphalt and other construction debris. And in school cafeterias, students can choose the food they want, which officials said has reduced the amount of food wasted and lowered the disposal costs by more than $600,000 annually.

The total disposal cost savings from recycling and waste prevention in 2007 was an estimated $2.3 million, the district said.
