plant in handIt seems these days lines are being drawn between those that "believe" in global warming and those that don't. Well guess what, I am not an environmentalist ("tree-hugger" as some might call me) because of global warming, although it is worth mentioning that I do believe the planet is warming, and I do believe that people do have some effect on that process.

Here are the OTHER reasons that I think green practices are important:

  • Because I think that dependence on foreign oil puts the country in a bad political position.
  • Because I think that people waste to0 much and that our culture has become over-commercialized.
  • Because I prefer quality over quantity, especially in houses. (and I don't want to clean a big house)
  • Because I want to breath clean air and drink clean water.
  • Because I believe that toxic products should not be applied to our food and that they probably cause a variety of health problems.
  • Because I believe that eventually we will run out of natural resources if we don't start using more sustainable practices.
  • Because I want to see more well-paying green energy jobs not overseas junk creation jobs.
  • Because I believe it is my duty to leave behind the earth in a better condition than I found it.

and yes, this one does have to do with global warming...

  • Because I love to ski and with the winters we have been having in Western PA I don't know how much longer I will be able to do that here at home.

So you see, being green doesn't just mean choosing a side on the global warming debate. There are a lot more immediate, local reasons to be concerned for our environment.

Thanks for reblogging this, as it was a really good post.  I see the original one got a lot of commentary on it, but didn't want to join in the fray.
