Now that we all know better we can all DO better. Back in the day when dams were constructed we really did not realize how certain species would be harmed and/or killed. The elimination of one species, causes an effect on another species and well, we seem to all be connected. When freight started to be shipped across oceans we did not realize we were interfering with the migratory patterns of whales. Now that we know we have moved shipping lanes so we have less ships running into whales. The ships have slowed down a bit so if there is an accident it is not fatal. The shipping industry has until 2020 to decrease the amount of pollution caused by the fuels they use to power the ships.
Now we can easily stop using straws to drink thru to eliminate the huge amount of plastic that is making it's way into the ocean. See now we know better we can DO better.

STEP 2: Join hands for 15 minutes at 12:00 PM, in your time zone, forming lines in the sand, or on the land, against dirty fuels. Say yes to clean energy and renewables.
