Global Warming Today: 10 Things For A Boring Life

Yeah, I heard about this on Rush today, during the few minutes I had to listen. But, I only heard a few, so, had to go out and look. Don’t think this is quite the one he was talking about, but, it looked interesting. There is no seriously hard left bias in this, is there?

  1. Enjoy food fresh from the farm.Buy directly from family farmers, look for family-farm products and encourage your local grocery stores and restaurants to do the same. To find local foods near you, visit www.localharvest.org and www.sustainabletable.org. (actually, not a bad idea, at times)
  2. Vote your values with your dollar (and fork!). All of our consumption, savings and charity choices make a huge impact. Find out where your bank, university, or pension invests and talk with them about choices that promote the health of workers and the planet. Learn more at www.socialinvest.org and get inspired by successful campaigns at www.ran.org. (far left sites)
  3. Eat a sustainable and whole-foods diet. Support farmers raising produce and animals sustainably and in the process eschew the factory-farming that contributes to air and water pollution as well as global warming. Learn more about organic foods at www.organicconsumers.org. Find meat raised sustainably at www.eatwellguide.org. (Organic is shown to be more worse for you, due to disease and pest, at times. However, while I say screw the global warming BS, reducing air and water pollution is a good thing)
  4. Support fair trade products and worker rights. Fair trade ensures farmers get a fair price. We can now buy fair trade coffee, tea, fruit, and more and bring fair trade into our local cafés and restaurants, hospitals, and schools. Find out more at www.transfairusa.org and get involved at www.globalexchange.org and www.tradematters.org. (Power to the communes!)
  5. Transform the buying power of your community. We are all part of institutions–churches, hospitals, workplaces, schools, city councils -– that we can encourage to make purchases based on shared values. For instance, to find out more about bringing fresh, local, and organic foods into your school or other institution, visit www.foodsecurity.org. (Organize, comrades!)
  6. Create “brand-free” zones. Advertisers spend billions every year to tell us what to eat, wear, and believe in — ads that bombard us in the classroom, doctor’s office, even public bathrooms. We can create “brand-free” zones in our kitchens, schools, medicine cabinets, and more. Visit www.adbusters.org and be inspired. (Or, you can be an adult and just ignore them)
  7. Get a diverse media diet. Although six corporations control most of the major media, we can tap a vast, independent network for diverse information. See www.indymedia.org, www.gnn.tv and www.freepress.net to get involved in bringing media democracy to life. (na, no bias)
  8. Get involved with the issues that matter to you. We can make our voices heard by joining advocacy groups, writing our elected officials, and getting involved with groups in our communities. Learn more about the issues that you care about, and find out how people are organizing to make a difference. To learn more about food, farming, and trade policy, visit: www.foodfirst.org, www.publiccitizen.org, www.maketradefair.com and www.iatp.org. (burn up tons of paper and energy while making your petitions and signs, and signing petitions!)
  9. Host a teach-in, study group, or gathering. See www.moveon.org for creative ideas about gatherings, events, and local organizing around causes that matter to you and visit eatgrub.org for ideas about creating community-building dinner parties. (Power to the people) 
  10. Vote! Clear and simple. Join www.indyvoter.org or other groups getting out the vote and building democracy—locally and nationally. (don’t vote for those pesky neocons, my socialist brethren!)

They really are funny, aren’t they? Do they really think they can possibly get Conservatives and even right leaning independents to follow them when they are so utterly hard left?
