Dear EarthTalk: I understand that the "environmental justice" movement seeks to protect the poor and non-white communities from being unfairly targeted to host activities like sewage treatment plants, landfills and polluting factories. Have there been notable victories? --P. Silver, Peekskill, NY
Spring is in the air, and it is the wonderful time of the year when we start to shake off the dust of winter. As we begin to open the windows of our physical and spiritual houses, it is a good time to get our emotional house in order. What do we do when we get overwhelmed? How do we deal with the stress and the pressure that each day brings? How do we clean our emotional reservoir? We must learn to reset our emotional clock and refresh our spiritual reservoir. I call this process spring cleaning for the emotions.

Dear EarthTalk: I'd like to have a garden that encourages bees and butterflies. What's the best approach?--Robert Miller, Bakersfield, CA Attracting bees and butterflies to a garden is a noble pursuit indeed, given that we all depend on these species and others (beetles, wasps, flies, hummingbirds, etc.) to pollinate the plants that provide us with so much of our food, shelter and other necessities of life. In fact, increased awareness of the essential role pollinators play in ecosystem maintenance—along with news about rapid declines in bee populations—have led to a proliferation of backyard "pollinator gardens" across the U.S. and beyond.
