Screen savers:More harm than Fun?

Jun. 24th, 2008 | 01:27 pm
posted by: vira120 in ourenviroment

 Wow, so like many of teenagers today I am completely hooked on to the computer practically 24/7. I came across this article on the yahoo homepage about screensavers "You still use a screen saver, don't you?"
They say that screensavers were used to prevent burn-ins of images onto the screen, however because we're all hightech now, the LCD screend no longer need screen savers. 
So how about we remove thos silly screen savers that look like your underwater, uh?
I was never very big on screen savers anyway.

This news is from quite a while ago but it still confuses me. Mainly, experts are saying that golbal warming is not causing the devastating hurricanes. they say that it is just a "natural multi-decade cycle". Persoanlly im not sure what to make of this.Whould this mean climate changes over the world are just  a "natural multi-decade cycle"?

Back From the 2 year long HIatus!

posted by: vira120 in ourenviroment

So I feel bad for just letting this group die. If the environment is something i truly care about i should do all in my power to keep this group alive and growing.Thats what i plan on doing. 
The two years of hiatus have made me realize that i really can do something and i can use my knowledge and gifts to help our environment..

So await the new changes to the community and more updates within the next week.

Don't Nuke Iran
NO WAR!!!!!
 According to Greenpeace.org the U.S  is 
considering the use of Nuclear weapons against Iran.
According to physicians:
within 48 hours over 3 million people would die as a result of the attack
A half of those would die from radiation-related causes,
.within 48 hours, prevailing winds would spread fallout to cover a large area in Iran, 
Afghanistan and spread into Pakistan
over 35 million people in Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India 
would suffer significant radiation exposure
of 1 rem per hour or above within four days..
