Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

Greetings!

Hi all. I have, at long last, joined the blog. Um. Now I have nothing to say so I'll put in a plug for my job. Everyone go check out www.environmental-action.org and send an e-mail or call your senator about the upcoming vote on Bush's unhealthy skies bill.

For some context, the bill will increase the amount of mercury coal fired power plants can release by gutting strict standards contained in the current Clean Air Act. Mercury pollution is a really fucked up thing. It causes birth defects, learning diabilities, heart problems, memory loss, cancer, and has been linked to autism rates.

To get an idea of the stakes, check out this photo of a child in Japan with birth defects caused by mercury poisoning. (warning: unpleasant)

I hope all is well, and look forward to reading all yer posts and putting up some happier items myself. Take care!
