Green Party

Green Party of SuffolkOn Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 7pm, the Brookhaven Green Party gathering will feature a speaker on the Brookhaven Recyclebank program. The event will be held at Rio Douro, 800 Horseblock Rd, Farmingville, NY 11738 (631 880-7890). Come hungry! For directions to the Brookhaven Green Party Gathering, contact Marisa Pizza at 516-458-9319. All gatherings are open to the public.

The town of Brookhaven is the first in the state to adopt the recycle bank program which rewards residents for taking environmental actions including recycling. The program is described as being similar to a frequent flyer program. The residents can then turn in their points for rewards from local and national business. In addition to significant environmental benefits, increased recycling also has a positive impact on Town finances through cost savings in disposal costs and revenues from the sale of recyclables.

The Green Party is an alternative party to the Democrats and Republicans. The four pillars of the Green Party are:

  • Nonviolence/Peace;
  • Grassroots Democracy;
  • Social and Economic Justice; and
  • Ecological Wisdom.

The Green Party Party is now a ballot-qualified party, so they are listed on the new voter registration forms.  On the old voter registration forms, you can enroll in the Green Party by checking the box marked Other on the voter registration form and writing in the word Green on the line next to it.

  1. Hi,

    I’d like to introduce you one vision about how to tackle Climate Change consequences as part of a bigger Economic Development mechanism.

    I am conducting a research in the field of climate change (and what we could do to adapt to it). The study has multiple scientific, social, economic and political aspects.
    The details are available at http://www.deserticeproject.com

    There you will find a description of the project aimed to fight global warming (and many other related global problems like desertification / drought, food and water shortage, poverty, unemployment and illiteracy as foundation for hate, violence and religious fanaticism, etc.) by global, complex measures.

    The emphasis is on the belief that basically we can react to climate change in two key ways: once – by intensive greening (more trees and leafs – more absorbed CO2, as well as more jobs, more income and profits, more stable economies and more well living people, etc.), twice – by sophisticated filtering and energy efficient systems not allowing heat-trapping gases to flow in the atmosphere.

    I believe that this might be interesting for you from your perspective, and that the proposed measures could initiate a serious discussion.

    regards,
    ivo

  3. OIL IS FOR DINOSAURS

    I hope that Obama will talk about the true cost of oil. People in this country are complaining that oil gasoline costs them $4 per gallon. However, oil costs us much more. I think that the cost to the environment, which can be calculated in dollars…for example the cost to clean-up oil spills, the cost of dirty air and the health problems it causes, the costs of hurricanes like Ike and Katrina, the cost of global warming in general. I hope Obama has his people calculate these real costs and average them into the cost per gallon for gasoline. I would imagine gasoline actually costs the average citizen more like $50 a gallon!

    Just as an addiction to heroin costs much more than the price of the drugs itself, so addiction to oil costs much more than what we pay at the pump.

    What about the cost to our beautiful landscapes; the coastal waters, the pristine Alaskan environment. And what should we do with all of these ridiculous drilling rigs after we have sucked all the oil out of the ground and pumped it up into the atmosphere? What about the cost of removing the drilling machines when they are no longer of use…when all the oil is gone…because one day it will all be gone…that is its nature. Oil is non-renwable. Or do all the fanatical born again christians like Palin not care because they are just hoping for Armageddon soon anyway? The policies of the right wing christians will certainly hurry that along!

    OIL IS FOR DINOSAURS…and if we keep using OIL we will become dinosaurs.

    We need to invest in the energy of the future….in fact solar and wind power are the energies of the present. They already exist! Lets use them more fully and develop a sustainable infrastructure before the religious right (which does not care about the planet anyway) turn Earth into a living hell.

    • $50. a gallon, get real. As with the Green Party should also. Great idea the party. But stop with the 60’s Bullshit and fight the powers that be with their own bull shit. Stop with the wishful wishes & get real. Don a suit, get a hair cut, and do some real investigative electing. Exposure of your challenger through the District Attorney’s office, not fliers

  5. Dear Sir/Madam:
    I live in Hampton Bays. I understand there is no Green Party organization east of Babylon.
    Can you tell me when you meet?
    Thank you.

    • Hello Alex,

      Thanks for writing. You should have gotten the email I sent you in response to Dani Liebling’s request. My email is wmblake7@yahoo.com.

      If not, the best way to keep current in Suffolk County is to go to the htttp://www.gpsuffolk.org website and sign up for the listserv on the right hand side of the homepage.

      The County organization in Suffolk is active, but Babylon is the only place that holds monthly gatherings. We are still transitioning since our regular meeting place closed. I do not have the March meeting place set yet. When I do I will make sure to email you.

      peace
      Ian
