Forced Green Turns 1!

birthdayballoonsToday Forced Green celebrates it’s 1st birthday. Born out of the concern for our environment and our planet as a whole. Dedicated to bringing information, small/large, technical/simple, any data that Earth’s people can utilize to help their Planet Mother (and her children), heal, survive, thrive.

Named ‘FORCED’ Green because after decades of abuse, neglect, and treating Earth as though she is the size of Jupiter, (still no excuse if she were), our planet was, (still is), in dire straits. We were blindly speeding towards unimaginable consequences, and yet, the powers that be and the media, that is suppose to keep us informed, didn’t seem to ‘get’ the seriousness of the situation. Treating the environmental movement like a passing fad, which would fade as if it were as inconsequential as bell bottom jeans or disco dancing. One way or another, in the nick of time or not, we would be ‘forced’ into greening and hopefully, healing our sacred Earth.

Earth from SpaceIt’s been a year now, and thank God, we as a people have woke up and smelled the coffee.  Governments, (especially mine), and the media, have done a ‘180’ on their attitudes, concern, and involvement in our global environmental situation. Governments are reaching out to help jump start green energy business’, while at the same time tightening the grip on those industries who persist on polluting. Universities are gearing curriculums and research projects towards sustainable energy and green building projects. Communities are ramping up their recycling involvement and restructuring building codes to include ‘green incentives’.
And the list goes on and on…….

Why? Because of you, everyone of you 294,000 who have stopped and visited this site alone,  (and the nearly 6,000,000 hits). If you were not concerned, you would never read a green blog, express concerns to friends, family, media, and queried local officials about the lack of community recycling. By whatever means you used/use to get your concerns across, talking together (out in public), email, commenting on blogs (which is more important to a site than you might think, thank you). Because you are concerned with the condition of your planet, have said and still saying so, probably without even realizing that you started a ground swell, growing large enough that your governments nor the media could ignore any longer. A world wide Green Earth army.

And without you, Forced Green would have never gotten off the ground. So, from the bottom of my heart, Thank YOU, each an every one.

We are – Forced Green – because it’s a small planet, after all!

…and the only one we have.

    Although the old saying goes “its never to late” I still believe that we as a whole have left it way to late to change anything about the enviroment. I feel sorry for the world really, the human race is going to distroy the planet and along with it ourselves. Its good to see though that there are alot of people out there trying their part to save what is left.

    LadyGraces last blog post..Update

  26. Linda Says:

    Hi Mom’s Cafe … Thank You. My Earth Hour turned out to be a little over 2.5 Earth Hours. However, no valor on my part, my Electric Co-Op hit my area with an outage at 6:30 PM and just got it back a little after 9, LOL! But, I must say, I DID NOT crank my generator the entire time!

    Hi Sadie … Thanks Sadie, it’s been quite a ride this year!

    Hi Lissof … Thanks you! Read my reply to Mom’s Cooking above and you’ll see that fate made sure I wasn’t going to forget! Still laughing about it, but I must say it was/is a crisp, clear, beautiful, night!

    Hi Christina … Thank you, it was grand!

    Hi Lady Grace … please don’t despair! We are truly on a just road now and our numbers are too great to overcome, trust that we are conquering the destructive path that has hurt our Earth. Have faith in her resiliency, she will overcome.

    Happy Birthday!!

    Mine’s happened, too!!

    Blogging is such an evolutionary adventure…

    I feel especially remiss in not visiting your site more often…

    Been ever so busy with my blogs, my research to revise and expand a book I wrote a few years ago, and working my nutrition business…

    May our blogging New Years see more digital interactions!!!

    Hi Alexander …. I see you have been busy! Thank you and Happy Birthday to you as well! A year really passes fast doesn’t it?

  37. Used Car Dealers Says:

    Hey Linda! Great work..! Congrats for the celebration on first birthday!! If something is made mandatory and is forced to do forcefully for a good being then it must have to be implemented. If the thing comes to save the planet, then every individual should have to be supportive and work accordingly to save the planet and greenery on earth.

  38. Linda Says:

    Hi Used Car … Thank you ! Sooner or later, folks will be doing what is necessary.
