Hey Christine,

I couldn't find your email in my address book, but just wanted to let you know... I read all the entries on both blogs today about the environment.

I agree with you on just about everything you said. I think people want to use Al Gore's personal life as an excuse to dismiss everything he's saying, and unfortunately that's just ignoring the issue.

This earth has definite ways of regulating the damage we inflict on it, and as much as we don't want to admit it, we are doing it to ourselves, but telling ourselves we are justified.

Anyways, thanks for contributing...

i love this proverb. and hey i agree with sterling ;) i admire your courage to stand up to everyone and speak what you believe. i think it's so good for us all to see other points of view and not just live in our comfortable little bubbles. i enjoy hearing what you have to say.
