WORKING TOWARDS A HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT

Judi Wild - environmental artist.

I am one of Canada's many artists who is concerned about the health of our planet.

The food that we consume, the air that we breathe, our water are all becoming polluted

I have devoted an entire web page to listing the URL links of

a growing number of environmental groups and sites devoted to the concerns of climate change and public health.



I welcome any additional links.



I applaud the efforts of our youth and especially the devotion of their mentors. They are working hard to make this earth a better habitat for future generation.

My Girl Scouts and I wanted to express our gratitude by writing a thank you note for your environmental page since it helped us out so much! My Girl Scouts are learning about ways to go green” Cindy Powel
As another small token of our appreciation we thought it would be nice to send along a helpful resource that we came across. Its a great aid for electronics and appliances recycling. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Global-Promotions/Recycling-Electronics/pcmcat149900050025.c?id=pcmcat149900050025



Dear JUDI WILD,

I want to share an excerpt from a public conversation I held on Beyond Awakening in early 2016 with activist, farmer, author and founder of The Orphan Wisdom School, Stephen Jenkinson.

In this brief clip, Stephen suggests that the growing epidemic of pain killers is really a coping mechanism for living in a disfigured landscape. As natural born “practitioners of beauty,” we are brutally confronted by the specter of our dying planet. Overwhelmed by that pain, we desensitize — with drugs, food, work or a host of other self-medications.

Our capacity to create and appreciate beauty withers.

But many of us awaken from our denial. Initially, we may become paralyzed with sorrow for the damage of our “head-in-the-sand” existence.

But there is a parallel realization — a kind of “burdensome privilege” that from this moment on, we must proceed in full knowledge of our responsibility to each other and our impact on the world. Stephen says the claim that this lays upon our days is actually ennobling—“true grief.”

Such grief can become “an animator of our days” and the root of a deep gratitude for the remarkable, quixotic alchemy of being alive.

It’s stirring spoken poetry and deep food for the soul in this time of dark headlines.

I invite you to please listen to audio



It is time we start respecting our planet and make a real effort to save it from global warming. It may already be too late.
A big mistake for our planet was opening the Northwest Passage above Canada. Now that the water passage is open it draws more sunlight and heats the open water much more quickly than it would if there was still ice and snow protecting the ocean from the sun's rays. There is huge ice fields that are centuries old and are now dropping in to the water and melting. Without having the snow to shield the water it may be non reversible to have it freeze again. The south pole is now also melting huge ice fields.
Another hint of global warming is the huge fire we had in Fort McMurray last year, the largest fire in Canadian history. We lost houses & hundreds of acres of trees which help serve as our "lungs of the earth". Therefore we all must do everything we can to help save our planet. Global warming is real, it is here and we need every one on earth to help save our only liveable planet.

TGOING GREEN AT SCHOOL

Over the last couple years I have worked with a camp and we had a big focus on recycling last year that we will be continuing this summer. We do all sorts of fun activities and the kids are all wonderful to get to know. Working with them combined with my love of writing lead me start writing about various articles on how to recycle and reduce waste. Kim
