10. Consolidation of Corporations.

9. Genetically Engineered Organisms--animals and even humans.

8. Consumerism.

7. Excessive use of pesticides and chemical fertilizersin farming. (See number 3).

6. Dead zones in the ocean.

5. Industrial Pollution. This article is a photographic essay on China's pollution problems, but they can be translated to all areas of the globe.

4. The global food economy--"our well traveled food."
3. Genetically Modified Foods--Monsanto, decrease of nutritional content of food, and the death of bees.

2. Corporate ownership of environmental "commons"--specifically, our water resources.

1. Department of Defense "Recycling."

It is unfortunate, to say the least, that on the 40th celebration of Earth Day, we will once again only touch upon the tip of the iceberg concerning our shared Titanic course.

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.' ~ Thoreau
