Earth Day 2012

I Almost Missed It

If I had to rely on the newspapers, television, or apparently most regular media, I wouldn’t have known that today was Earth Day.

Even the LA Times only had an article about a $60 lightbulb for Earth Day on their front page. People in the comment sections picked up on this $60 lightbulb story and used it as their argument against saving energy. If they had read the story, (and some of the other comments), they would’ve found that that $60 lightbulb only costs $10 at Home Depot.

The flowers around the Treehouse celebrated Earth Day with new blooms of riotous color.

I saw some of the Washington DC Earth Day celebration on the computer. There was a website that was streaming the event live. I could see that the weather was not cooperating but a few people were brave enough to stand in the driving rain to see performances by Dave Mason, Cheap Trick, several other performers, activists, and politicians that showed up to lend their support to Earth Day.

I think they should have the national Earth Day event take place in California where the weather is more inviting for people to go outdoors and celebrate.

There were a couple of Earth day gatherings here in Redding today. There was one at the Win River Casino parking lot with vendors, music, and exhibitions. That started at 8 AM and ended at 2 PM.

2 PM is about the time I get going out of the house, so I didn’t get over there to see that.

Instead I wandered around the Treehouse and enjoyed this place where I live on this magical planet we call Earth.
