This 4th of July, Get the Facts

I have to say, its hard to feel very festive today when there is so much death happening to the earth. This BP oil spill has got planet earth majorly out of balance. The facts are, that oil comes from rot. Oil is biodegraded plants, animals, etc. Its literally, liquid death. It stores naturally under the earth in a way that keeps it in balance with the living. But because of this recent accident, which could of easily of been prevented by BP, when A: they dug the well, by enforcing it properly and B: when engineers suggested shutting it down for repair – instead BP insisted that it pump pump pump. All they cared about is their very short term bottom line. They were greedy and short sighted. Well look what is happening to their company now. Its bleeding millions of dollars. This spill will now cost Billions of dollars to be cleaned up. Planet Disco isn’t advocating the complete discontinuing of drilling for oil, however, we are trying to push for alternative resources to be put into practice asap. It starts right at home.

A Zen Car would be a lot better commuter car or one of the other alternatives that are out there.

On this day (and all days), at your BBQ’s and parties and firework shows, clean up your messes! Reduce the amount of plastic you are using! Recycle everything you can! Be thankful for your loved ones and be safe. Don’t get distracted by labels, like “Liberal” and “Conservative” – all they do is draw lines in the sand and prevent anything from getting done. Get Honest and Get the Facts!

Here is a video that was banned in the US that was done by 60 Minutes Australia. It is hard to find hence the low quality of it as it streams on the net:
BP Oil Spill

However, this is just one example of over consumerism that is negatively effecting the earth, and will drastically change all of our ways of living in our lifetime. In this day in age, for the first time as humans, we are truly faced with the most real-world scenario for extinction that we have ever faced. To get a better understanding of what this actually looks like, please review the art of Chris Jordan

Not touched upon yet, which is also very important, is the loss of the rainforest. An animation created by the founder of Planet Disco was created awhile back to illustrate this problem. Rainforest Deforestation Statistics

We love cars we love technology we love life, but we want to encourage everyone, to do everything within their means to get educated on the world around them and do their part to the best of their ability. Give back as much as you take. Get Creative with your solutions or the way you advocate these topics.

Happy 4th! Love the Earth!

  7. Phentermine is the most commonly prescribed prescription appetite suppressant, accounting for 50% of the prescriptions. Part of this reason is because it’s significantly cheaper than the other major FDA-approved diet drugs, Meridia and Xenical.

    As Phentermine is an older drug, no new efficacy trials have been conducted. The one notable exception, are several trials on the combination of Phentermine and Fenfluramine in the early and mid 1990s.

    How should this phentermine be used?

    Phentermine comes in tablets and extended-release capsules. It usually is taken as a single daily dose in the morning or three times a day 30 minutes before meals. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take phentermine exactly as directed.
