Think Global, Act Local

mother earth

“I think that what we are up against is a generation that is by no means sure that it has a future.” George Wald.



Sad but true, and from what I gather from the general public, (which gets most it’s information from t.v. and movies) is that we’ll all be under water in 50 years or less. Is this a scare tactic, or could it be true? I believe it to be true. That is why we must stop and think-How can I help? Well first, start at home. As you start taking the steps toward accepting responsibility for our planet, you will notice that it rubs off on people. So what is it that you, personally can do to save the planet. There are many things that you can do at home and at work. Some more obvious than others. Try this-verbalize your efforts to friends and co-workers, I guarantee that they will listen, think, and act upon what you have told them. There is only one way to make sure that our efforts are not in vein, and that is to inform and educate people about how the simplist habit can be changed, for the better of all earth-dwelling creatures.

    I would like permission to use the jpeg

    It’s an image of two painted hands that together form a globe.

    I would like to use it in a free curriculum for high school teachers.

    Thank you

    I am interested in the artist’s name. Who created this lovely photograph? whose hands are they? what a lovely idea!

  6. Aloha from Hawaii –

    I am wondering if I might get permission to use your awesome photo of the two hands making the world to publicize and upcoming dance/theatre performance for my company titled, ‘The Living Earth’. We are a Hawaii-based performance group called IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre, a 501C-3 non-profit organization, doing our part to create awareness of planetary and human conditions in our time, through dance.

    If you could pass on the photographer’s info, I would greatly appreciate it – would love to obtain a high resolution copy.

    Thank you!
