President Obama signed the Executive Order 13514 outlining environmental, economic and energy goals back in October 2009. President Barack Obama believes in global warming and climate change. There’s still debate about global warming causes and the consequences of global warming. Some claim there is a global warming hoax – we’ve been and are being deceived.
Despite the controversy, President Obama’s signature means that the United States will get on the go green path to assisting in the earth’s sustainability.
The U.S. Government has finally sets the example. Almost a year after Executive Order 13514 was signed into law, the White House released the Federal Agency Strategic Sustainability Performance Plans. Agency by agency they’ve gotten on the "go green" bandwagon.

So, when my money gets tight, as it is for so many in America these days, I struggle with the decision to pay the extra price for organic produce. I believe toxins and pesticides are killing us and causing cancer and other diseases. And in the long run, avoidance of health issues saves me money. Not to mention the benefits to health, well being and quality of life that come from eating a healthy diet filled with pure, unadulterated, non-genetically modified food. My body know what to do with food. It does not necessarily know how to process the chemicals and toxins we put on and in our food.
I found a great site to encourage me hold to the organic path.
When I think of the environmental, global warming, eco-friendly movement, I think of nice friendly people who love nature, want to reduce pollution, support earth sustainability. Promote health and want world peace. So the concept of law breakers and criminals in the environmental movement was shocking. But on second thought the idea is not so radical. Those who care deeply and want to bring about change often feel justified in using disruptive, criminal and even violent measures to accomplish their goals. “By any means necessary.” To quote Malcolm X.
Some people have sustainable green agendas that they think warrant crimes. I’d rate these crimes as minor and just nuisances. But there are ways to “Go Green” without breaking laws.Check out this intriguing article
Tis the season for good ripe strawberries. Good for eating. A great source of vitamin C, so strawberries are good for nutrition. Many joke about the SAD diet that the average person in the United States eats – the Standard American Diet, that is. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) has been telling Americans that they should eat 5 serving of fruits and vegetables a day. The CDC has recently modified nutritional recommendation – there’s not just one formula for optimum health. Each body is different. So, the CDC has developed a handy vegetable and fruit calculator. But even without a calculator, I would venture to say that most, if not everyone I know, needs to eat more vegetables and fruits.
Did you know: Strawberries have benefits beyond just ingesting them? I’m now finding out that strawberries can be used to solve personal care issues – naturally.
The skin is the biggest organ in the body. Whatever you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body. If you believe this, you’ll opt for organic strawberries. Why add chemicals and toxins while you’re trying to do something good for your body?
The event benefits Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention.
You benefit because you get to participate in a group workout.
Kids and young adults benefit by engaging in a healthy, fun event… Topped off with a concert.
Many believe that if you keep adolescents and teens busy with sports and other activities they are less likely to get into trouble. Trouble can be defined as crime or drug use. Trouble can also be defined as sexual activity which can lead to pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Focusing on fitness is a healthy distraction. And proceeds from the World Fitness Day goes toward preventing teen pregnancy.
It’s a win-win proposition: you workout and you help prevent pregnancy.
Donzella James. (Senator, Georgia State 35th District) told me about the Going The Green Mile event on April 10, 2010 in Atlanta. I had to go the extra mile to get details about the event. There was no clear path or easy to find information about the event. In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy had the yellow brick road to show her the way. I had to use Google. I figured it has something to do with environmental issues. Much of the information I found was in jpeg format, meaning it was a picture. I also found a website with nice pictures with no details. But alas… I got the details anyway:
Going The Green Mile Expo & Green Idol Concert Saturday, April 10th
At Atlantic Station
9am to 4pm
Then my dilemma was what’s “Green Idol”?
And what’s the connection between a green expo and a website called www.pupilinternational.org?
The obvious assumption is that “pupil” refers to some sort of student group. Not exactly. People Uplifting People In Life, Inc. or PUPIL is a 501 (c) organization. And PUPIL deals with mentoring and empowering youth and young adults.
Then there’s the idol part. I would venture to say everyone in the United States a knows about the popular American Idol TV show, even if they don’t watch it. And American Idol certainly attracted attention in the United Kingdom and other places internationally when the British lady Susan Boyle appeared on the American Idol show in 2009. Simon Cowell and the audience smirked and laughed before they were totally awed by the unassuming but immensely talented Susan Boyle. The show’s popularity shows how much attention Americans give to entertainment and things of little importance.
Those interested in green, environmentally friendly issues, don’t fit that mold. They care about the environment. They care about the planet earth. They care about the air we breathe. They care about animals. They care about the world that future generations will inherit. They honor and respect people, life, and the earth and the earth’s resources. They believe the actions of man impact the environment and climate change. They want to save our environment The “going green” group is willing to take action to improve the planet and everything in it.
Do you think the “Going The Green Mile Expo & Green Idol Concert” will help?

I sent a twitter tweet about Earth Hour which was March 27, 2010 at 8 pm. I guess with my
email overload situation I missed all the buzz about Earth Hour until the day before.

for Earth Hour Atlanta. And there were major corporations and organizations participating
and supporting the initiative to have lights turned off from 8 pm to 9pm on Saturday March 27.
