Summoning The Rain
by Fruitarian Network Tuesday, May. 29, 2012 at 4:40 PM
Many areas of the world need regular soaking rain. Trees create rain by evaporating an average 42 gallons of moisture daily which becomes mist, then clouds, and then falls as rain.
Why is the area of most heat and light, the equator, only 70 degrees in equatorial rainforest and 130
degrees intemperate zone desert? Trillions of Trees. Trees as nature's weather stabilizers, account
for a 60 degree difference between rainforest on the equator and temperate zone desert. They have
been felledat an unprecedented rate. Harming trees causes fire, flood, famine,tornado and hurricane.
1. Water trees daily. If there is no planet left, money won't matter much.
2. Plant trees.
3. Say yes to trees by eating their free gifts of avocado, apples, pears, coconuts, almonds, walnuts,
and thousands of other fruits and nuts. http://spot.acorn.net/fruitarian
4. Save trees
a. cancel daily newspapers.. most of them are owned by those linked to the war machine. Read daily
newspapers if you wish in the library
b. magazines to can often be read on the web
c. install a water hose from toilet water tank .. a cleaner method than toilet paper
d. recycle all paper ...from cardboard cartons to the paper wrappings on tin cans.
e. buy food in bulk to avoid the waste of paper packaging. Nature puts recyclable shells on nuts,
peels on bananas, rinds on oranges. Fruit is the most perfectly packaged food.
f. build with stone or stucco, brick or block, clay. Homes can be built in lakes with metal stilts.
The Beacon Journal, ohio.com, did a story on a woman building a home with stacks of hay
and clay. This is 1. better insulation than wood 2. prevents termites 3. doesn't reuire painting
4. less mold 5. reduces the arsenic in the watershed from logging factories. 5. prevent the wood
rot which comes from moisture 6. have increasing rather than decreasing equity in your home
g. Have natural barriers such as bushes and trees or chain link rather than wood fences
h. Many supermarket chains now sell inexpensive reusable packages. If yours do not, request them.
i. Save fruit and nut seeds and scatter them in wild places.
j. Purchase furniture made with metal structure and cotton padding and pillows, not wood
k. Work for hand dryers rather than paper in commercial bathrooms
l. Boycott those insurance companies and sue 'health' departments which mandate the killing of trees on private property
m. Require the USPS to expand the size and number of their recycling bins, to purchase only recycled materials, to sell small envelopes, and to give receipts only if requested.
n. End logging in our national, state, and local parks
o. Avoid fast food places which deforest with their packaging as well as being a factor in rain forest destruction. These companies say that US animal flesh comes from US suppliers but they don't mention that Central and S American flesh for their outlets comes from rainforest destroyed land.
p. Contact the Direct Marketing Association (USPS has address) to stop the flow of junk mail which comes from dead trees. The USPS makes citizens subsidize the absurdly low prices paid b junk mailers. ADVO may be the world's largest junk mailer.
q. If you celebrate Christmas, purchase artificial trees or plant firs in your yard and decorate them outside. The Christmas tree industry evicts squirrels and birds from their homes. You will be preventing fires and saving the time of vacuuming up brown needles.
5. group and individual prayer
6. rain dances
7. stop mowing.. every blade of grass every leaf are air conditioners
8. a number of environmental studies say animal flesh is
antagonistic to the earth... since trees are cut down for cattle ranches and factory farms http://www.ivu.org
Cattle and sheep grazing are a major cause of deforestation including that cows and sheep eat sapling trees. Animal flesh yields a maximum of 1000 lbs an acre. Tri level agriculture (fruit trees, vines and fruit bearing plants) yields over 450,000 lbs. peracre.
9. demand recycled, cotton, rice or other nontree paper from library copiers and printers, from publishers etc.
10. Work for peace.
a. Trillions of trees are bombed or crushed by tanks in war.
b. Seymour Hersh reported that cloudseeding as a way of causing floods has been a tactic of the CIA.
Floods in one area mean drought in others.
11. Stop the control of national, state, and local governments by corporate contractors
12. In order to remove earth abusers from government, 'voting machine' companies must be heavily
13. Sources of litter (dead Christmas trees, fast food chains, junk mail) kill trees in addition
through clogging landfills, requiring further tree bulldozing for new landfills.
14. Work to end the 'controlled burns' of the USDA and Department of Interior which have burned
millions of acres when the wind changed. Even when they achieve their intended purpose they burn
ground nesting birds, reptiles and plants.
15. Start an environment group and build coalitions with other environmental groups.
16. Disinvest state pension funds, mutual funds, union pension funds from treekillers.
Thailand has banned logging. In India, the UK and other countries trees of a certain age are protected
by law. 1000 year old oaks, 2000 year old banyan trees can be seen in these countries. Permits are
required in some West and East Coast cities to cut down old trees. These countries have fat trees
while the US is at present a land of skinny trees.
The present control of the USDA's Forest Service and DOI's National Park Service by lumber, mining oil and cattle interests is a factor in tree destruction.
