Being alive in this century of massive human growth and progress, we sometimes need a reminder that our actions and decisions shape the future of the entire Earth. This reminder came to my attention while reading Countdown: Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth?, by Alan Weisman. After reading, I was struck by an urge to find ways to help the Earth’s environment and I posted a suggestion on my blog. This is my first foray into the category of Environmental, Conservation, and Ecology. I will be looking for a new book to read on these subjects in the near future.
