Election Day and the Environment

So many of us are overwhelmed with election day this and that. I wanted to just post a few links here and a blurb about each of them. I hope you will check out what is here.

I write a more personal and funny blog to my kids and yesterday I wrote to them about how I made my choice to vote today. I voted for them, their health, their planet and their future. I chose not to repost it or re-write it here as some of you may not care who I am voting for but if you are curious as to how I came to my decision I share some of the factors here.

Diane at Big Green Purse put together a great carnival of posts about the election and the issues at stake here. I do hope you will check out her post and the articles she linked to, some of my favorite and most respected green bloggers are included.

Paige at Spit That Out wrote a great post about why she is voting for Obama and her commitment as a Mom, an American, and a Women. Paige is a very passionate person and I think she did a great job with this post.

Lori at Groovy Green Livin wrote about her inspiration of voting with her children in mind… something I agree with. She speaks very personally about how she is active in her beliefs on a clean environment.

Lynn at Elephant Journal shared a cartoon about Romney’s anti-FEMA comments here. In our post Hurricane Sandy election we cannot neglect the pressing issue that climate change is and how it affects our daily life. Privatization of disaster relief is something that many right now would think is unworkable.

UNDECIDED than this is the place for you head to Votesmart.org for unbiased information about the issues to help you decide who you want to vote for based on what you care about.

For my California friends… this picture says it all. Please vote YES on Prop 37 to have GMO’s labeled… we all will thank you especially this little guy

Who ever you vote for I hope you go out and vote today! 


  1. Thanks so much Leigh! :)

  2. Thank you so much for the shout out Leigh. It’s such an important day with so many issues at stake. I took my kids to the polls bright and early. I’m happy to report the lines were long and -which hopefully means a lot of people were out voting!
