Old Spice ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Not to be a buzzkill, but…

Isn’t there still a drought in California and surrounding states? Why are we wasting the water? Seriously, I’m all for raising awareness of ALS, but could we find a way to spread the word that doesn’t waste a few gallons of water every time someone participates?

Gay icon Lady Bunny brings up an interesting point in her Blogger post entitled “A Brand New Challenge”, "…some of the fad-obsessed attention nuts who like to pretend that they are briefly concerned about some disease or missing Nigerian girls they were obsessed with a month ago but haven’t thought of in weeks, celebrities desperate to seem relevant and hip to internet trends who usually forget to actually post the donation information for Lou Gehrig’s disease which has been suddenly re branded as ALS and Californians too ignorant to know that there’s a serious drought that the ice bucket challenge contributes to.”

I hate to say it, but I agree with her. STOP WASTING WATER!

By the way…

If you want to do something about ALS Please, save the water and DONATE HERE.

Smart Cat Uses Water Cooler

No matter how cute and smart the kitteh, with all the water going everywhere, I’d have to put this cat up for adoption.

Here’s what South Philadelphia (from about Moyamensing Ave to the Delaware River looks like under 10ft of water.
Will your neighborhood be underwater when climate change causes the ocean to rise?

Just enter your address, a city, or any place in the world in the space provided.
Too bad if you live in Florida. :(

Under the Benjamin Franklin Bridge (Philly side) with a great view of…
Camden NJ! 0__0
Not bad for a picture taken while hanging from the side of a Duck Boat.
Note: I was not really hanging from the side of the boat. The Duck Boat staff would never let anyone hang off the side of the boat. Something about “safety”.

THERE IS WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEANCARRY THE WATERREMOVE THE WATER

Actually! This was a very clever setup by a team of divers in the Arctic, I believe. The person is upside down, their bouyancy belt calibrated just so that they are slightly lighter than water, and able to walk upside down on the ice. In the first segment, when his mask vents, watch the bubbles flow DOWNWARD, which is really the up that we know. Science is really fricking cool!



Because… SCIENCE!

A Can’t miss Event with BPEarthwatch talking about this disaster and how to prepare if needed!

I’m posting this for a number of reasons, the first being that we would be foolish to think Fukushima an isolated event that is over and done with. The reactors continually emit radioactive material into the environment. The effects will be felt for decades, if not centuries, to come. This should concern us all, not just those living on the West Coast of the United States. Radiation is getting into our food supply. King crabs and salmon from Alaska and produce and wine from California and Washington are just a few affected foodstuffs.

It’s not just Fukushima. The effects of the BP oil spill are still unknown. Fracking is leaking harmful chemicals and gasses, including methane, into our drinking water 

But no one is paying attention.

I could point fingers at the tea party GOP for their animus towards the EPA, FDA, and other consumer health and safety organizations, but that wouldn’t solve anything.

All we need are people who care enough to make some noise.

If we don’t stand up for our environment, then unemployment, civil rights, marriage equality, and the economy mean nothing. Without safe drinking water and food, we won’t last long enough to worry about voter suppression.

Cause and effect. Everything goes somewhere.
