LIO Fellow (then Advisor) scientist John McConnell led way for Earth Day, here with Earth Day flag. LIO Flag is the same but on white with blood-red accents.
Takeaway: Let’s not forget ‘Passive Green’ is the basis; Green is being used to justify backfiring anti-solutions.
o Legality of self-sustaining untaxed Green Homesteads in country and city for every family
o Insulation back-engineer of e.g. walls, appliances that naturally cool, heat, save money in buildings
o Legality of local low-impact vehicles that use batteries, pedals, etc.
o Legality of self-regulating farmer market’s in every neighborhood—not just set areas
o Study of ideal organic soils with encouragement of home-based food production, prepping
o Community progressive air/water pollution reduction guidelines and barrier walls
o Legality of tax-free/deductible organic co-ops, no-pollution agreed zones, firms, retrofits
o Use cap-and-trade to directly grant search for promising low-pollution technology as intended
o Focus on voluntary choices--and not taxing, seizing, or regulating the above when they work
Earth Day is one tool to raise awareness. But Green solutions, like all voluntary choices, start and end at home.
