    • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

      1. For me it’s still trying to halt global warming.
      2. No more pipelines through our pristine land
      3. find alternative energy sources and it make it so the average person can afford to get a fuel efficient, eco-friendly vehicle.

  23. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on
    the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to

  24. Thanks for your post here. One thing I would like to say is
    that often most professional areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree like thejust like the entry level requirement for an online college degree. While Associate Certifications are a great way to start out, completing the Bachelors starts up many good opportunities to various professions, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Course Programs available from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online editions of their diplomas but generally for a considerably higher cost than the providers that specialize in online college diploma programs.

      Clean water and air. A close third would be humane treatment of farm animals.

        1. Regulate mass immigration and halt urban sprawl.

        We cannot effectively conserve our fragile ecosystems if we do not constrain the gargantuan flow of mass immigration. According to the Census Bureau, by 2050 our nation’s population will soar to well over 430 million.

        Considering this projection, that means tens of millions of new homes and apartment units will be constructed, causing an unprecedented flood of urban sprawl in a short period of history. Additionally, tens of thousands of big box chains (Wal-marts and the like), fast food franchises, hospitals, parkig garages, strip malls, parking lots and other facilities will be constructed to support such a colossal population.

        Mass immigration and unabated urban sprawl go hand in hand. We have no future as a nation until we control dangerous, unhealthy, anti-Earth growth.

      • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

        controlling immigration itself is a monumental task. i agree that the more people we have in the u.s., the greater our challenges. with our new immigration reforms, it looks like an invertible situation. we already have more than our share of challenges so this just adds to the rest. i have no answers for this or any of our other pressing challenges. let’s hope some of our top brains can figure them out.

  25. mark ford

    1.increase the mpg for all vehicles by 10mpg city use. 2.Stop forever the stupidity of the keystone pipeline.3.A maximum push for wind,solar and geothermal alternatives combined with a national smart grid.

    • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

      1. slow down global warming by fining or shutting down polluters.
      2. save our environment from future destruction
      3. save the creatures of our planet and protect their habitat.

  26. This blog post Tell Us Your Top Three Priorities for Conservation
    American Eagle Compact: The Eagle’s Nest, offers extremely good tips and I figured out specifically what I had been searching for. Thank you.

    Hi Colleen, maybe tropical fish ‘farming’ would be a possible industry? Similar to catfish ‘farms’ and now shrimp ‘farms’……

    • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

      It has been tried but tropical fish do not breed in captivity. It’s unfortunate but for some reason, it has been tried unsuccessfully.

  28. Ben Holmes, Maine

    1. Conserve and utilize farmland; screen hundreds of thousands of homeless people in America, identify those that are sane, and offer them the opportunity to work fallow/abandoned land in exchange for educational or work opportunities.

    2. Land for Debt Swap: if a land owner holds ecologically sensitive or economically valuable property worth $1.2 million, let that person offer that land to a conservation easement in exchange for tax forgiveness in the market value of the acreage.

    3. Revive the Civlian Conservation Corps. Make it, and other service programs, a mandatory service program for those aged 17/18-20. It is time to invest young people in this country again.

    Conservation IS Patriotic.

    • Rita

      I agree with your points,Ben,however, many, many homeless mentally- challenged people find great therapy and treatment while ‘working the land’. Also, if the offer included a group-home type setting for the homeless who work the land ( organically, of course), maybe this would help thousands of families, men, and women who are homeless, regardless of the cause. The CCC definitely needs to be reinstated! Not only for our younger citizens, but what about those incarcerated in prisons who are living basically on our tax dollars? This could reintroduce them to what is really important in life- supporting life, growing and selling food, and a purpose for them besides crime. Just some thoughts….Rita

      • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

        Realistically speaking, how many of the homeless are willing to work and to live in a home? Our state has built shelters for the homeless but many choose to live under the stars or on beaches. The kind of work for keep situation sounds more like immigrants would do and they are not mentally challenged, just homeless.

      • Rita

        Good point. Maybe tents? Food and clean clothes? Everyone I guess, wants their own privacy , to an extent. No ‘tent cities’, just alternative housing to the standard home- at least in warmer states.

      • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

        Yes our ideal weather lends itself to tents and camping on the beach. The local government has tried to clear away all the squatters from the public beaches so everyone else can enjoy it too.

  29. Muriel Servaege

    1. Protect Arctic, Antarctic,Wild places and Oceans..
    2. Fight global warming. I mean find what causes it and fight it efficienly. Be aware this will require a lot of sacrifices;
    3. Choose and promote some sacrifices (we can start with 3) and make sure their are done in the long run.

    • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

      We need to fight the big corporations that want to drill for oil and other resources that will destroy our natural habitat, slow down global warming if it’s not too late, and protect all natural habitats. Do what is necessary to stop the timber industry from cutting down the trees that we all need to survive.

  30. Rita

    1. Stop Alaskan pipeline
    2. Renewable resource production: wind( with caution for migratory bird species), solar,geothermal ( more jobs created!)
    3. No fracking;
    4. Keep tough EPA regulations on all mining for resources- on and off-shore
    5. Educate people to less consumerism and more conservation: R-R-R!!!!
    6. Keep migratory ‘green spaces’ and ‘land bridges’ for wildlife
    7. No more harvesting of trees/oil/gas in state and national parks
    8. Educate and help fund farmers ( esp. corporate farms) to organic gardening- limiting use of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides
    9. More awareness on the plight of the honeybees and other pollinators

    • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

      I agree with all your points Rita. More closer to home in Hawaii, I’d like to see the end of reef fish collecting, Renewable energy sources like wind and geothermal energy, and fight global warming before it’s too late.

      • Rita

        HI Colleen, I hope there is some sort of environmental movement against the collection of reef fish- all for the sake of aquariums…more than sad; it’s happening on reefs all over the world. I don’t think people realize where their beautiful saltwater fish are coming from, do you? Pet shops make them look like they are ‘farm-raised’, and should be made to disclose exactly where the fish have come from, then maybe people will second think their purchases!

      • Colleen Y. Miyose Wallis

        Hi Rita, when I brought up the subject with my students, a student said out loud that’s what my uncle does! I then realized that they they do know where the fish are being taken from. When it comes to conservation versus profit, Education is the only way we can help prevent the raping of our oceans.
