Earth Day? Doing what in those celebrations? What are your priorities?

Earth Day? Doing what in those celebrations? What are your priorities?

April 22 is back again. This Sunday will be observed by over 1 billion people to participate in Earth Day activities. Is it the largest civic observance in the world according to Earth Day Network?

Where would you like to start from? I have the impression that my list will have no end to it, enumerating the ailments that mother earth is suffering from, particularly, how mankind is coping in this desolate landscape and reduced imagination and pragmatic resolutions to world problems.

Never mind how the animal species are fairing:

If mankind maintained intact the environment of the animal kingdom, animals are well adapted than us to survive and thrive…

What could be your priority of promoting in Earth Day?

1. Working toward clean and fresh potable water?

2. Demonstrating and struggling for dear clean and healthy air?

3. Confronting nuclear waste disposal systems, chemical waste, toxic rare dirt exploitation…? (See note 3)

4. Cleaning beaches from frequent and abundant oil spills?

5. Stopping massive deforestation for the agro-industries that mankind never get a share in it?

Five years ago, my niece Joanna and future husband Yuhanna donned white overhaul to clean up the beaches in Lebanon that were polluted by oil spills generated by the bombing of Israel to our refineries by the coast in 2006. Why the overhaul had to be white? Is it supposed to be a once wear before being discarded, so that thousands of workers in the garment industry in China, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Viet Nam, and India faint en mass? (See note 2)

The UN demanded from Israel reparations, but Israel considers all UN resolutions as not of its concerns. The US didn’t exert any pressures on Israel, as usual. And the pseudo-State in Lebanon is not following up on this issue…

During our long civil war, Italy and other European States dumped hundreds of containers containing toxic materials and paid the militia leader “overseeing” the Jubail district.  The government knows the location, but refuses to touch and approach the matter.

Two years ago, the government bought two jets for “sprinkling” man-made “wild fires”. The machines are not functional: Well, they were not been put to any use yet. Wild fires are politically supported to manufacture charcoal in the cheapest way.

There are many politically backed families that operate illegal carries. One family saw its business stopped by one government. The next government awarded $400 million for damages and permitted the family to resume operations. Go figure.  Shall I go on?

Erica, a staff at wordpress.com disseminated the links to 8 blogs that deal with Earth Day:

I haven’t checked any of these blogs yet. I have no idea when I’ll start finding the credible and valued blogs.  Would you forward other links from outside the US, even written in French or Arabic?

How do you celebrate Earth Day? Picnic for the Planet, or plant a tree?
