Aren’t we all a little existential?

“What am I doing? I don’t know what I’m doing.
I’m doing the best that I can.
I know that’s all I can ask of myself.

But is that good enough? Is my work doing any good?
Is anybody paying attention? Is it hopeless to try and change things?

I’m fucked. Maybe I should quit. Don’t quit.
Maybe I should just fucking quit. Don’t fucking quit.
I don’t know what the fuck I’m supposed to fucking do anymore.

I’m glad we saved a piece of this marsh.
I know it’s small, but at least it’s something.
Don’t stop fighting.”
– Albert Markovski, taken from I Heart Huckabees.

    Welcome to the fray. Who is left at NWF these days? Tell us a bit about NWF and what it’s doing — or point us to the sources, eh?

  3. Ha – sure, Ed!

    http://www.nwf.org – our main website

    http://www.nwf.org/news – where all of our releases about the issues we’re working on can be found.

    I work in the media department, so I really focus on getting attention from newspapers and radios around the country – or helping anyways. We’re focusing a lot on global warming right now – as it detrimentally affects wildlife, and habitat loss is an issue that will only continue to become more urgent. We have also been paying a lot of attention to the energy bills that the Senate and House have passed.

    Also check out: http://wildlifepromise.org – where we blog about what we’re working on, I also write there. Thanks for visiting… I’m going to try and write more often so come back!

    While I was in the coffee shop today (during a snow storm) sipping on my latté I was wondering if by my drinking milk was a contributor of global warming because after all it is cows flatulence that is a major cause?

    There are two sides to this story and literally hundreds of very credible scientists who totally disagree with the “global warming” theory. I live in the part of Canada that is now called Mordor because of the Oil Sands development. Do you people not realize what is already being done in this area to address environmental concerns? I am sick and tired of one sided rhetoric and so called “experts” who have never looked at any balanced approach. In some areas of Canada the polar bear is thriving. DOES THAT MAKE THE NEWS ? No. I am all for saving the environment but I wonder what the motive behind alot of this crusade is. It appears far more political than scientific. Twenty years from now we will see this for what it really is. Mostly bovine gas.
