landscape-749680Are you looking for ways to help save the world, whatever your super powers and limitations?

Many people want to participate in creating a better world, but don’t know what to do, where to start, who to turn to.  The one question I’ve heard most often lately is, “What can we do?” I understand, because that’s where I am, too. And for people with physical and financial limitations, it feels like that question should be in all caps.

Our world desperately needs all the help it can get, so it makes sense to share what I learn as I explore. It makes sense to create a place to turn to for answers, a place to explore possibilities. And it makes sense for as many of us as possible to pitch in and save our world.

No heads in the sand, here, though–we don’t need our butts waving and blowing in the air. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: When you stick your head in the sand, your ass is exposed–and EVERYTHING comes as a surprise! As we struggle to save the world, we must remain alert and aware that the world today is, in so many ways, excruciatingly dangerous. So many things can go really, really wrong. No conspiracy theory here, or even alarmist–I don’t have to tell you that the threats are for real. And I want everyone to be as safe as possible as we go about saving the world. So I’m also going to delve into how to survive anything that is a reasonably possible life-threatening disaster or situation.

After all, that’s exactly what saving the world is about: survival.

(Heads up: However life-threatening a zombie apocalypse might be, I don’t consider it reasonably possible. So zombie hunters should apply elsewhere. Clowns, on the other hand,…)

And who am I?

I’m just a regular, sometimes cool person (see pic), dealing with financial and physical limitations. But I’m passionate about the environment, civil rights/social justice, animal rights, food/food safety, and a fair political system. My goal used to be to do as much as I could to leave the world a better place than it was when I got here. Now I’m striving to help save it–to leave it in the best condition possible. I’m hoping you’ll join me. I believe we can accomplish more together than we can working alone. Profile-image-color-us

My superpowers? Gathering information and organizing things. What’s yours?

P.S. I’m not a purist. In other words, if you can recycle and feed the bees, I don’t think you should be condemned or vilified if you can’t afford solar panels and absolutely can’t get by without air conditioning for now. It is currently impossible for everyone to do everything that needs to be done. Our society just isn’t set up that way–yet. But whatever you CAN do, please, do. Everything counts.

P.S.S. I wish I could leave politics out of this, but it’s impossible when you’re talking about the environment and civil rights and animal rights and food safety, etc. They depend so very much on policy, so I don’t see any way to avoid being political. I will, however, try to be cool about it (again, see pic). Thank you for your interest and participation!
