Who is this Deborah Jones Barrow you may ask? I found via the “About Us” page on The Daily Green.com, Deborah Barrow herself states,

“I had gone to the country to live. After years of the media wars in Manhattan, I was ready to raise heirloom roses in my organic garden. And to volunteer. It was that kind of time.

But then the climate in my garden began to change. And then I saw An Inconvenient Truth. And then one day, my husband Peter said, “Honey, somebody ought to invent a great green website for regular people.”

So, welcome to TheDailyGreen.com.”

Nice…I like her style.

A study of 49 island countries found 55 percent of their coral reefs overfished. To sustainably harvest the million metric tons of fish taken annually from the islands, 30,000 square miles more of reef–or the equivalent of nearly four Great Barrier Reefs–would be needed. Demand for reef fish is largely coming from Hong Kong traders, who are now supplying a burgeoning market in Mainland China. Reef fish take 5 to 10 years to reach breeding age and so are particularly vulnerable. Fishers capture the fish, live, using cyanide, destroying coral in the process; 75 percent of the fish die even before getting to their market destinations.

I never was like I have to see that Al Gore movie. I was always one to pick on that crazy guy everyone says thinks invented the Internet.  [I still haven’t ever looked into that claim either…I will one day.]  Point is, I didn’t much care one way or another. Don’t get me wrong, I love the world, but am not sure anything is up with this global warming, except longer days where the weather is more to my liking than not. I always say if this is global warming…I’ll take it!

Like many things in my life, this movie just happened upon it. I am recently a member of Netflix [another phenomenon I thought I would let just pass me by] due to a lovely lady in my life. She even set me up with my own log-in to gain unlimited access to their bazillion movies. Wanting to make a good first impression on Netflix and Marine with my amazingly deep movie selection, I decided An Inconvenient Truth would be the perfect way to do just that. It showed up at our apartment the beginning of December and almost a month later to the day I sprang into action, took The Simpson Game out of the PS2 and begrudgingly popped in the documentary to watch…by the end of this movie we had the heat off, all the lights in the house turned off, and I was feeling guilty having the television on to finish watching it.

Where is it I am going with all this you may ask? Well, for one Al Gore is a good man. It is a blessing he did not become president as he is on an important path now, beginning this journey 4 or 8 years later might have been too late or at least later than need be. We would have lost precious time is what I am trying to articulate. He took something I think many people don’t even try to understand, as the enormity of it seems overwhelming, and made it simply understandable. He stayed away from the anger and finger pointing I think because he wants a solution not someone to blame. It is a great documentary and if you have not watched it, you should, as it is important and your global responsibility to not allow yourself to be ignorant to an inconvenient truth. We need to be passionate, we need to care and connect to humanity and nature, it is who we truly are. We have been blessed with the gift of this life. I for one am ready to start kicking some serious ass. This blog is my first step in kicking ass for the good of the World and the awesome [and not so awesome] people who live here. I will not wake up one day and say, “Why didn’t I do anything?”.

Much Love.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
