Earth Friendly Hour: March 23rd, 8:30 P.M.
Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope that we could mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.
Earth Hour has now become much more than a symbolic action. It has evolved into a continuous movement driving real actions, big and small, that are changing the world we live in. :earn more at Earth Hour .Org Book Beat Suggestion: A Reading Hour by yourself or with your family by candlelight, flashlight or fire-light.

The Main Library Theater holds up to 235 people and we are trying to fill every seat! This is one of the most important movies on food you will ever see.. The library is on 12 mile between Orchard Lake and Farmington Rd. I look forward to seeing everyone! “Genetic Roulette,” a film by Jeffrey M. Smith and narrated by Lisa Oz. It is a production of the Institute for Responsible Technology. Presented by NO GMO 4 MICHIGAN.org
The movie explains the difference between traditional hybridization techniques and the gene splicing process that occurs with GMOs and how this process can significantly alter the nature of a food. Much of the movie focuses on GM “roundup ready corn” and how it works its way through the food chain from the actual corn itself to food ingredients, animal feed, meat and milk products. Scientists present convincing evidence about how proteins and toxins related to the addition of roundup linger in the gut, destroying gut flora and leading to a host of digestive and other health concerns. Study after study reveals the health problems caused by consumption of genetically modified foods in both animals and humans.
The movie presents many actual cases of animals and people eating a GMO vs. non GMO diet and the corresponding physiological impact. The graphic display of unhealthy livestock, sick pets and cattle dying after eating GMO cotton stalks in India leaves one with a strong visual impression of the serious complications GMO foods can cause.
