Some of you will find us foolish, if not tedious, but we do believe the above statement would ring true in a world that has all its marbles. The environment is being laid waste in ways that are appalling yet we still haven't moved as a people to stop it.
In the name of profit, convenience, or sheer ignorance, we are letting environmental atrocities take place, not just in countries we will never visit, but right here in our own homes. In fact, if you're reading this, you probably live in one of the most unfriendly countries in the world today. Honest.
It's easy to look the other way, of course, what with the media being saturated with various distractions - the few media conglomerates that exist are usually run by the friends of the people who are raping mother earth. (Strong language? If you consider the razing of the Amazon jungle, the long-term damage being done by Alberta's oil sands, the rapid extinction of wildlife, ...etc., we feel the term "rape" is maybe even diplomatic)
It's all so sad when one considers all the excuses and justifications that are heaped upon us daily for not doing the 'right thing'. What the naysayers and roadblockers are saying is pathetic and frequently disturbing, and it's all the more reason to shout the bastards down.
That's why, this week, we're spinning an ode to Mother Earth. Not content with unleashing some aural anger, as we did last week, we decided to play more contemplative songs this time around. And with Kate Bush, Days Of The New, Martin L Gore, Midnight Oil, Ozzy Osbourne, Tears For Fears, The Gathering, The Mission, David Usher, and Within Temptation, tossed together for your listening pleasure, how could we go wrong? :)
So, ladies and gentlemen, go make your voices heard - now is the time! Then, please consider taking a break to join us this Monday from 9 to 10pm (eastern) as we share our love of Earth Mother on CHUO 89.1FM's "What the...?" - the only Radio With Multiple Personalities!!!
Please note that "What the...?" can also be heard on the web via chuo.fm
