Let's make 2017 the year of What We Can Do

Ask questions that invite conversation. Then: listen. At this time, what is a healthy person? What is a healthy environment? How do we take responsibility for ourselves and our environment?

How can we reduce our energy and electronics use and still function in society? What can we do individually, by household, by community and at the regulatory level?

What keeps our friends, neighbors, physicians, legislators (etc.) from recognizing scientific evidence of EMRadiation's harm to living creatures? What effectively opens discussion about technology's energy demands, effects on humanness, effects on wildlife, lack of regulation?

Given current federal and state regulations, what are realistic goals (re reducing e-techs' EMR emissions, energy use, use of conflict minerals and waste)? What actions have been ineffective? What would be effective?
