Stop Oil Seepage

Most Americans are not aware of the problem that is facing our environment as a result of natural means. One example is the naturally occurring oil seepage. "Natural gas and oil seepage is the greatest source of petroleum pollution in the ocean and atmosphere."(taken from the SOS California website)

If you are concerned about our oceans and marine life or just in general want to be a good steward to this land, policies need to change. Take some time and check out the SOS California website. 

Take action, learn more and say yes to offshore drilling and exploration. 

Just think about it. Does it seem safer to get our oil tanked into this country on big oil tankers or drilled offshore and brought through pipelines? If we do nothing we still have to deal with the oil seepage which accounts for 63% of the oil found in our oceans and on our beaches.

View from the North Pole

Would you like to see pictures from the North Pole? I found this website and it is very cool (no pun intended).  They even have a section that shows web cam animation. Check it out at: Arctic Theme Page.

Also, here is another page I found that is quite interesting. Icecap

I think it is so important to hear both sides of the story so everyone can m
ake up their own minds whether to believe of disbelieve our climate crisis. 

Here is what the Old Farmers Almanac has to say about the colder temperatures coming. 

Also, if you heard the hype about the arctic sea ice disappearing this summer you will be happy to know they (NSIDC) now report that the sea ice has now stopped melting and that it is UP from last year. They won't make a big point to that though because they don't like the results. See their title to the story. "Arctic Sea Ice Now Second-Lowest on Record." Don't you think it should read "Good News! Arctic Sea Ice Melt Up From Last Year!" That should be great news, shouldn't it? 

Weird just weird.

What now, Global Cooling?

Come on! Do we even have this thing figured out!

The sun makes history! It's first spotless month in a century! Does this mean we are headed for a global cooling? Read this report and see what is happening that has scientists stumped! Daily Tech

We are all just a bunch of idiots down here thinking we can figure this thing out. We have no clue. Plus, if we are the cause to global warming, by our CO2 admissions, why are other planets warming as well? hummmm. Warming of other planets Could it possibly be something bigger than us in charge?

Why not take a look at water vapor? This is what happens when you add water vapor into the equation of what is causing the "Greenhouse effect". By the way, have you ever stepped into a greenhouse? Quite warm and humid eh? Funny how the US Dept. of energy excludes it.

Role of Atmospheric Greenhouse Gases
(man-made and natural) as a % of Relative
Contribution to the "Greenhouse Effect"
Based on concentrations (ppb) adjusted for heat retention characteristics Percent of Total Percent of Total --adjusted for water vapor
Water vapor ----- 95.000%
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) 72.369% 3.618%
Methane (CH4) 7.100% 0.360%
Nitrous oxide (N2O) 19.000% 0.950%
CFC's (and other misc. gases) 1.432% 0.072%
Total 100.000% 100.00

Take a look at the whole study. A closer look at water vapor

This is just crazy to think that we have so much control over this.

Ok, This makes me mad.

This video is about the famous "Polar Bear picture" that Al Gore used and other media outlets used to tug at the heart strings of all us animal lovers. They used it in a way that is misleading to the public. This twisting of information just makes me mad. Come on!! Everything we hear, see and watch must be filtered through the screen of context because anyone can twist things to mean anything they want it to mean. Many have their our own agenda to push and many will fake reality in hopes that they will blindside the public.

This is from the Daily Telegraph on how this photo was used. Not right!!!

Look into this further and you will see that this photo was taken by a student on a trip, her name is Amanda Byrd.

Just take today and be good to your kids. Give them lots of kisses and hugs and feed them good food.

Just had to add this! It is way too funny!! Ironic is the word.... Ann Bancroft

Is it really true?

Just came across this video and it caught my attention. We talk about this subject all the time, "Is Global Warming really true and is it caused by man?" Jamie and I disagree on this topic because I am more of the skeptic and I am just not convinced that man has caused all these problems. I definitely believe we need to be stewards of this land just like we take care of our homes and our property we own. We need safe water, safe food and safe air. But, the whole destruction of the Earth caused by man. ummm.. don't know.

Anyway, if you want take a look at this video( I think it has a part two also). Very interesting on all the facts. I wouldn't even know how to check the facts anyhow, nonetheless, it gives a different side to the story. Which is good to see because you can come up with your own conclusions.

Here is another bit of information I ran across. John McLean Just in case your interested.

Do you know an organic farmer?

In honor of the great stewards of this land we would like to say "Thank You" for keeping our food safe, our water clean and our soil free of harmful chemicals!

So, if you or someone you know is an organic farmer, let us know! We would like to send them a couple t-shirts from our womans activist line, complementary of coarse. They could wear them at the farmers markets or give them to some of their farm hands or customers. It helps spread awareness so hopefully, people will look into the issues for themselves and make better buying choices.

Go to our contact us page and drop us an email and let us know who you would like us to send some tees too! We would be happy to do it. :)

Have a great day!
