World Changing.org

Check out this new website: World Changing
They have chapters in: New York, Austin, Canada, Portland (of course) and Twin Cities.

Here is a bit of their mission statement:
“Worldchanging was founded on the idea that real solutions already exist for building the future we want. it’s just a matter of grabbing hold and getting moving.”

Its about finding real solutions to cleaning up our environment and living a more sustainable way…like riding a bike…duh.

Lifetime artist, environmentalist and local community activist Wendy Brawer had this to say about biking in NYC

“It’s November 1, 3:30 pm and I’m about to get on my bike and ride uptown. At 67 degrees, it’s a perfect day for biking – not (just) for my personal comfort, but the shock of the warmth reminds us that the city should be doing all it can to encourage more bicycling everyday. NYC’s sustainability plan inexplicably does not seem make non-polluting mobility a priority, despite our low air quality/high asthma rates, our perfect flat tight terrain for cycling and the growing number of people of all ages and backgrounds on two wheels in any weather.”

    Hey that sounds great but I can’t access this site through your link.
    My server cracks up about not having permission.
    You might have to reduce the link down to delete the text at the end of your URL after .com. Try deleting “local/new%20york”
    I did this and managed to find the page.
    Thanks for all the great posts.

    The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

    The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

    Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

    Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
    Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
    Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
    Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.

    Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

    If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

    Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.

    When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

    There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

    People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

    Emotion ends.

    Man becomes machine.

    A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

    A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

    A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.

    FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

    SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

    A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

    A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.
