I have already donated my Campbell cash to the friends of Madrona Farm society and will donate more in the future.
The Dogwood initiative is getting the 100 dollars. I still read your online newspaper, but you are becoming just like the other news outlets.
How about challenging the City of Vancouver Park board cutting the trees at the Queen Elizabeth Park? Aren't we talking about climate change?
Why aren't the organizations you are peddling not going to war with the park board over cutting trees in Vancouver?
What has happened to all these organizations and the ZENN Canadian made car?
For me all of you are just plain hypocrites.
So cut out the bs.
I am giving my $100 dollars to the co-operative community gardens in Nanaimo. We grow local organic food, what could be better for the earth? www.nanaimocommunitygardens.ca
I am supporting the Campaign for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) because we cannot leave protection of the global commons to national leaders who usually serve national interests and their corporate backers.
The UNPA is an international grassroots campaign working to introduce citizens' representation at the United Nations. Canadians are playing a leading role. The idea is to begin with an advisory body associated with the UN - a citizens' watchdog with clout - that gradually transitions into a world parliament. This would be similar to the development of the European Parliament that now has co-decision powers and is elected by over 490 million voters of the European Union. Although just launched in April '07, the Campaign already has support from participants in 119 countries including academics, Nobel Prize winners and over 500 current parliamentarians. Please go to the website unpacampaign.org for background information and to endorse the proposal on-line. Join activists all over the world working for global community and an effective, accountable United Nations.

Our cash,(where is Campbell getting it from in the first place?)is going to install a carousel clothes rack in the back yard thereby eliminating at least half of our annual electrical drying and bringing back that sweet smell of outdoor air-dried clothes and bedding we had when we were kids.
See ya later hydro!

My family has donated their $100 to my Red Dot Campaign - No Junk Mail Please. Purchase our "No Junk Mail Stickers", write your own sign, or download one free on our site www.reddotcampaign.ca. We'll each save 1/2 tree per year. Let's leave the trees in the ground and "Long live the carbon tax".
It's going to take nothing less than full scale mobilization to slow the pace of global warming. Until our governments are willing to really take a stand, I'm gonna party on! Nuthin' stopping me from spending my green bucks on jet fuel. In the meantime, dream on all you do-gooders...
Anybody wish to help me to get the message across?
All over the city and everywhere else, people leave their lights on, day and night! How can I get a campaign going for lights and computers to be turned off when they are not needed. Currently, buildings of business, high risers, street lights, public buildings, offices, lobbies of hotels keep their lights on day and night. How can we change that?
In my building the lights are on day and night not only in the lobby and hallways, also in bike rooms, hobby rooms and gyms and amenities room as well. The office towers I see from my place are lit up like a Christmas tree, day and night. Street lights are often on 24 - 7. This would not cost much (unless people install sensors) Awareness needs to be created that we are indeed wasting much energy. I do not know how to go about it. All I know is this - changing our habits does not cost a thing.
Other questions to ask the public:
How many showers do you take in a day?
How long do you stand under the shower?
How much hot water do you use while having a shower?
PS. Most people would not be "dirty" if they showered every second day, providing they do not work in construction.
Because of rent, food and transit cost increases I am spending my $100 on a bus pass and food.
I am giving my $100 to The Land Conservancy towards the purchase of a working urban farm.
I fully understand that low income people cannot afford to donate their carbon refund but I'm concerned that so many other British Columbians rant against a carbon tax and wonder what they are doing to reduce their ecological footprint.
It's going to get a lot worse than peak oil unless we act fast. We need governments to take action but what is their incentive when there is such a backlash? I've been very critical of the Liberal government but think they've got it right this time.
