It's been quite awhile, and for that I must apologize. I've had a rocky and hectic past school year and been through a lot, but one thing hasn't changed: I am still committed to helping preserve life and to be Environmentally Active.
For those of you who are still active LiveJournal Users and interested in positive environmental action, it would be great for you to leave a comment in this post, so we can see who is still around. As a reminder, while this community is for anyone around the world, a lot of my personal efforts will currently be focussed around York University and the Greater Toronto Area, as that is where I live... so please remember that you are welcome to post anything relating to environmentalism.
Ideally, it would be great if we had a number of people who are part of this community who would be willing to do a weekly or monthly article/post on specific topics... for example, on a particular endangered species, a particular threatened area, or a weekly tip on how to be environmentally friendly around the home. If you're interested in doing something like that, please comment!
With global warming becoming more evident every year, the continuing pollution and deforestation of the Earth and the rapid rates of extinction all over the world, it can be easy to despair. It is always important to remember that any contribution, no matter how small, still makes a difference, and that despite all the tragic consequences of our current civilization, the Earth is still an incredibly beautiful place.
Good luck in all your endeavours, and may you live in harmony with the Earth.
