Planet earth needs you! There are some serious attacks against it going on right now dear friends. A bill by the House Interior Appropriations Committee has passed permitting fewer protections for species at risk of extinction, more pesticides in our waters and less funding for crucial ecological priorities.

This is blatant disregard for our earthly home and its national treasures. One has to ask, "what are we leaving future generations?"if we continue to sacrifice our precious

wildlife and ecological system for fiscal austerity.

Do you love our planet? I know you do. So do I. That is why this bill is unacceptable and those in power need to know it. Speak out. Do it for Mother Earth. Do it for future generations -- before it's too late. God bless you!
