  1. I read some of these articles but not all and found them very interesting. The one I found most interesting was the article that discussed using waste and turning it into TPR. Whenever I read articles about using waste and recylced goods that can be turned into building materials I become very excited. It reminded me of a time during highschool I visited a home that was made entirely out of recycled materials. They used a local spring for their water and plumbing and used solar panels for energy. They talked about how nice it was not having to pay bills, let alone a mortage payment. I knew then that I wanted to build a home just like that one in the future. Not only do you save so much money but you are using waste in very benifical ways rather than it stinking up in a landfill!

    I watched the video of the 13 year old girl who spoke at a conference in Brazil. At the age of 13 this little girl is wiser than a lot of people around us who don’t realize that if we don’t change our ways there will not be a future for the generations to come. They will live atop mounds of trash, breath in polluted air, and be burned by the sun from lack of an ozone layer. If people would open their eyes like this little girl and just see what is right in front of them we may be able to save the future generations from ourselves.

    These links are totally awesome! I especially liked the “100 places to remember before they disappear” it definitely puts things in perspective. It’s truly unfortunate that some of our most surreal and fantastic landscapes and biodiversity spots are so threatened. We, as artists, spend so much time coming up with imaginative and ‘marvelous’ scenery for our artwork, and we would have such a great range of reference if we didn’t destroy the things we find most special.
