i just thought this was so incredibly wonderful, that i had to share. a testament to the power we have at a grassroots level to effect change on the world. a close family friend recently won the Goldman Environmental Prize for North America. craig is an amazing man and i'm just incredibly proud to be called a friend.

you can read about craig's work here (he has done an amazing service for our community... and i must add, has been working for a pittance in this labor of love for years):

The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize honoring grassroots environmentalists.

Founded in 1990 by Richard and Rhoda Goldman, the Goldman Environmental Prize annually awards US$125,000 to environmental heroes from each of the world's six inhabited continental regions.

edit: and do take a look at the video - it is just so amazing what craig has done (and you get to see a bit of the area we live in).

Pretty impressive. Just another example of how the Gov. likes to cut corners to save money.

the really frightening thing is that we are 40 minutes away from the depot and we have a manual about what to do in case of a chemical weapons breach. we really should have gas masks. a sobering thought.
