A Moral Issue

I try to keep this blog light and airy at all times- honestly, I don’t prefer to read people’s opinions on politics and so I extend the same courtesy to my readers. Instead, let’s talk about poop! Breastfeeding (I’m skeered)! Pregnancy-induced gas!

Well, I can’t do that today because the issue at hand isn’t just a political issue, it’s a MORAL issue. And how interesting that the first three stories on my morning news today were about forest fires in Arizona, flash flooding in Houston and unusually massive waves in my town.

I urge everyone, especially those with children or plans of future children, to see this movie.

And if the movie isn’t released in your area, take the time to look at this website. This isn’t a scientific fallacy. Read about the science. Learn how to take action.

And if you are still living in denial that the earth is not going to be a significantly different place to live in 50 years (YES! Just 50 years! Talk about skeered!), please take the time to look over this list. Each and every one of us can do something to protect our planet.


And now back to your regularly scheduled pregnancy banter complete with bloating and dreams of cupcakes.

    Ah, yes. That will be my next post…I am currently fed up with all the nasty dudes adding my belly photos to their porn collections. I’ll add you as a friend right now.

    Are you serious? There are *pervs* using you for odd fetishes? Oh.

    Just oh.

    My god.

    I’m so sorry. Your pictures are just adorable and honestly, that’s just a shame. And horrifying. And just…gah.

    At any rate, amen to the global warming issue.

    Sorry about the freaks loving your belly. That must have been scarey.

    Thanks for you posting. Although I can honestly say that I have done each of the 10 things (my hubby just started taking the bus to work, that was our last of 10 to add) and we try hard to cut down on all of our consumption that is not good for the environment. It is always a good reminder that we can do more. Everyday.

    Something about bringing a child in to this world has made me really concerned about environmental issues, as well. What kind of planet are we leaving for our children & grandchildren? Will they be wearing protective suits to go outside?

    great, now the pervs are looking at my children and thinking dirty thoughts.

    and you know the movie won’t be released here. that would be far too advanced for this state….

    Well put. Saw the movie last night and have not been able to settle. Like you, I want everyone to see it and contribute in a positive way so that this planet can survive. All children, including your little guy, deserve clean air, clean water and hope for the future. I’ve been working on this posting, trying to keep such a moral message as light, but as pointed, as I can. I think you struck the right balance.

    This is why I heart you. I can’t wait to see this. I mean…you know what I mean. And you forgot poop. It’s “regularly scheduled pregnancy banter complete with bloating and dreams of cupcakes” AND POOP.

    I hadn’t seen this nifty list before, so, inspired by you, I wrote a blog post about it, too (and linked to you; credit where it’s due; why am I rhyming?!); thanks for pointing it out.

    Right on sistah! No on wants to think about these issues, but they are so real and so so very scary. 100 degrees in Oregon just aint right, and we’ve had more forest fires than ever. People need to wake up and take responsibility.
