Do you remember seeing the film Living Downstream at Cinema Verde 2011? Then you’ll remember Sandra Steingraber…. – tr*

“…The people who come after us are going to be inheriting a planet that’s not suitable for life.

I’ve been moved by some of the writings of an environmental attorney, Joseph Guth, who wrote that a functioning biosphere is worth everything we have. So that’s what I’m going to be investing in. I’m investing my love, my money, my future in preserving the abiding ecology of the planet. And I think that’s a hard road, but it’s an inspiring road. I feel really honored at this moment in history to be playing this role. This is the human rights movement of our time. I’m getting on the bus and I want other people on that bus with me.”
