We have seen several terrifying examples of the impact of climate change during the past few weeks. They include:
The earthquake and tsunami that destroyed Japan.
Europe is suffering from the worst drought in a century.
Multiple tornadoes in the United States.
Dead dolphins washing up on beaches.
The ice caps continue to disappear at an alarming rate.
On this Earth Day, let's vow to heal and not hurt the Earth anymore

Love her attitude!
Evan Rachel Wood isn't necessarily looking for the man of her dreams.
The Mildred Pierce star, 23, would be just as happy if the right woman came along.
"I'm into anything," Wood tellsEsquire magazine in its May issue. "Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl..."
In the public eye, she's only dated men, but Wood – who was briefly engaged to shock-rocker Marilyn Manson – has experience with the same sex, as well.
Asked if she dates women, she answers bluntly, "Yes." As for what she's like in a same-sex relationship, Wood says, "I'm more kind of like the guy when it comes to [dating] girls. I'm the dominant one … I'm opening the doors. I'm buying dinner. Yeah, I'm romantic."

Five thousand years after he died, the first known gay caveman has emerged into the daylight.
According to archaeologists, the way he was buried suggests that he was of a different sexual persuasion.
The skeleton of the late Stone Age man, unearthed during excavations in the Czech Republic, is said to date back to between 2900 and 2500 BC.
During that period, men were traditionally buried lying on their right side with the head pointing towards the west; women on their left side with the head facing east.
In this case, the man was on his left side with his head facing west. Another clue is that men tended to be interred with weapons, hammers and flint knives as well as several portions of food and drink to accompany them to the other side.
Women would be buried with necklaces made from teeth, pets, and copper earrings, as well as domestic jugs and an egg-shaped pot placed near the feet.
Archaeologists do not think it was a mistake or coincidence given the importance attached to funerals during the period, known as the Corded Ware era because of the pottery it produced.
From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake,’ said lead researcher Kamila Remisova Vesinova.
‘Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transvestite. What we see here does not add up to traditional Corded Ware cultural norms.’

President Obama will win in 2012 because free-thinking and smart Americans support change and progress. We don't want to return to the Bush years of war, economic chaos, greed and corporate interests over the people. Republicans want to cut funding for health care, social programs, NPR and PBS.
Let's keep making America more diverse, tolerant and smart.
Please help President Obama win again in 2012!
