make earth great again

Image result for earth day 2015
thats what i was thinking last weekend
saturday april 22nd
earth day

now that should be the slogan for all of us
we only have one of them
it cant be replaced
we cant leave and go somewhere else
if we mess this one up

yes i know we think we want to go to mars
billions of folks arent going to fit on that planet

so we are stuck with this one
there will not be another one
we need to do what we can to preserve this one
so our future generations
can survive

i remember as i have written before my first
time to see smog
i thought it was just some weird cloud color sitting down
on the los angeles basin as we drove for the first time
over the cajon pass down into that basin

my historian brother who was driving
no thats not a cloud
thats smog

it burns your eyes
makes you wheeze
makes it hard to see things at a distance
sucks to have asthma and emphysema
live down in this sewer of air
i thought to myself

now thanks to laws and rules
environmental ones
the air is better down in that basin

my dad told stories of fishing on a river near where they lived
they had a houseboat on it
the oil industry polluted the area
ruined the streams and rivers for generations

it took laws and regulations to stop all of this

when it comes to the earth
we cant take our foot off the pedal
we have to aggressively take care of this one
there will not be another
make this one uninhabitable
we are done
whatever you call whats happening
whether you believe its man made or not
its happening
the glaciers are melting
i dont see what we are doing polluting this earth
is really helping it
at all

private industry is not going to do it themselves
they have proven that for years
it takes our government enforcing rules
to make them quit dumping all that stuff in the air
in the water
in the ground
can ruin our one earth

ruining our planet
may be our worst threat to our country

take care of it
each of us
the best we can to keep it unpolluted

if not
we are in trouble

make earth great again

dont pollute
plant a tree
