Time to Find Common Ground

A friend shared this video with me and now I am sharing it with you.  Please take the next two minutes to watch this fun and important speed-drawing video about climate change and then share it with your friends. It’s Time to Find Common Ground — Speed-Drawing Video on Bipartisan Solutions to Climate Change The […]

Physics Doesn’t Give a Damn

I was reading Bill McKibben’s most recent article entitled Obama Versus Physics – Why Climate Change Won’t Wait for the President and it reinforced my feelings that we must act now and aggressively to address climate change.  Given what has not happened in Washington over the past two years, I am not hopeful that our broken political […]

Reflection on School Shooting and the Need for Gun Control

Now that my kids are hugged and safely in bed, and I am sipping a glass of Shiraz, I am trying to come to grips with today’s events.  I feel the need to express my thoughts on the topic of gun violence and gun control. I feel that taking up the call of gun control […]

3 Ingredient Chocolate Fudge with Responsibly Sourced Chocolate!

I come from a family that makes cookies during the holiday season.  I have fond memories of my parents and siblings all working together to churn out batches and batches of cookies, particularly chocolate chip cookies.  I’m certain that’s when I learned to eat cookie dough, because once when I was in elementary school, one […]

Giving Tuesday and Occupy Sandy

Tomorrow, Tuesday November 27, 2012, is the first Giving Tuesday. The idea, conceived of and developed by the United Nations (UN), is designed to encourage people to give back to their communities.  Throughout the US we all know about Black Friday – to most a big shopping day, but to retailers the first day their books […]

You Are What You Eat Giveaway Hop

As a family, we are trying to eat healthier and greener. Unfortunately, short of going fully organic, that is impossible when we can’t tell what may be in or on the food we buy.  We try to make greener choices in our diet, but today we cannot tell if the food we are purchasing was […]

Why Massachusetts is NOT Voting for Mitt Romney Again

While this post is not green in nature, given Governor Mitt Romney’s stance that Global Warming is a Joke, please indulge me in getting the word out, as Massachusetts residents who lived through the Romney governorship, that Romney is going to lose Massachusetts and WHY he is going to lose it. The fact that Mitt […]

Climate Change is NOT a Joke – Vote!

Satellite image take Sat, 27 Oct 2012 at 10.45am ET shows Hurricane Sandy along the eastern United States coastline trackingnorthward. Photograph: AP With Hurricane Sandy, the biggest storm in history, bearing down on the East Coast of the United States, I find it appalling that one of the presidential candidates thinks Climate Change is a […]

Why Renewable Energy & Elizabeth Warren are Right for Massachusetts

In 2010, Massachusetts spent $17.7 billion on fossil fuels (petroleum, coal and natural gas) to meet the energy needs for our state.  Since the Commonwealth has zero fossil fuel resources, all of that money left our state’s economy either going to other parts of the country or foreign economies.  To see how much left the […]
