At the event,  we met some incredible people; passionate about keeping the balance of our Eco system. We met Senator Barbara Boxer, Laurie David, founder of www.stopglobalwarming.org and producer of the Academy Award winner An Inconvenient Truth, Maggie Fox, CEO of The Alliance for Climate Protection, Congressman Brad Sherman and many many more individuals who are influential in political and environmental campaigns.

We heard from Senator Boxer and was pleasantly surprised with what I learned.  Dan's post talks more about it here: Senator Boxer – a true conservative! We heard from Vice President Gore and he talked about his recent visit at Copenhagen. 

Watch the video of VP Gore at Copenhagen:


Like many people, I was inspired to take action by the film An Inconvenient Truth. Thus, TheGreenGirls.com was launched. What an incredible experience to shake the hands of Vice President Al Gore and to let him know that his work triggered what I do today.  It was a rare opportunity and I'm grateful to Dan Cashdan of the Climate Community for having me be part of it.

  • I am always browsing online for articles that can assist me. Thx!

  • This is just advised if you require unique features which is not offered in the business software application home builder sites around, as shown over.

  • Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  • You made some clear points there. I did a search on the issue and found most individuals will agree with your site.

  • Our family had similar issues, thanks.

  • I quite like looking through a post that can make people think. Also, thank you for allowing me to comment!

  • I’m very pleased to uncover this website. I want to to thank you for your time for this particularly fantastic read!! I definitely appreciated every little bit of it and I have you book-marked to look at new things in your web site.

  • After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service? Thank you!

  • I really like reading through an article that will make men and women think.Also, thank you for permitting me to comment!

  • Thank you for writing about this. I’m feeling enlightened!

  • Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  • Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  • very nice post, i certainly love this website, keep on it

  • Very well written story. It will be supportive to anyone who utilizes it, as well as me. Keep up the good work – i will definitely read more posts.

  • You should take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the web. I will recommend this site!

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
