You realize of course that this stuff is all tied into Agenda 21 (read agenda 21 on the Internet), the UN and the NWO. Saving a little dough is a good thing for us but Agenda 21 not so much.

Agenda 21, just Google it.

With all plans you have to weed the bad out of the good. We live on a planet with limited natural resources and need to plan accordingly for future generations.

Hi David.  Interesting on the carbon foot print.  What about the measurement of methane gas?

Methane (CH4) is a greenhouse gas that remains in the atmosphere for approximately 9-15 years. Methane is over 20 times more effective in trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide (CO2) over a 100-year period and is emitted from a variety of natural and human-influenced sources. Human-influenced sources include landfills, natural gas and petroleum systems, agricultural activities, coal mining, stationary and mobile combustion, wastewater treatment, and certain industrial process.
