Global Warming. A Hoax?
Man Made vs. Natural Occurrence... does it matter?
Science is not helping to answer this question since some leading experts believe it is a natural occurrence that has happened before (a cycle). Others believe we (Humans) are the cause. Does it matter? Even skeptics agree that the climate is changing, and not for the better. Things are happening a lot faster than anyone predicted. We need to educate ourselves on becoming better caretakers of this world for our children's sake.
Whether you believe in global warming or not we need to make changes and these changes don't have to be drastic to make a difference. Let's forget about the issue of global warming for a minute and concentrate on being respectful to our future generations. Pre-cycling, Reusing, and Recycling although a small fraction of what we can do just makes sense.
I have put together a small list of actions we can take in or daily lives. We have all heard about energy efficient light bulbs, turning the water off while brushing your teeth but hopefully these actions which aren't so common help you to think in a different manner.
•1. Grass Recycling (No this has nothing to do with Drugs)
By mulching instead of bagging it reduces the amount of garbage in the landfills as well as provides a chemical free fertilizer. Also saves time.
•2. Use rechargeable batteries.
Reduces garbage and keeps toxic metals such as mercury (found in some batteries) from getting into the environment or buy batteries with reduced toxic metals.
•3. Buy local products when ever possible. (Not that easy)
The way we eat has an enormous impact on the health of the planet. If you crave strawberries in January, you probably won't be able to get them locally.
•4. Buying clean energy (Not Everyone Knows this is possible)
I purchase 100% of my electricity from renewable sources. Avgerage cost increase last year here in Milford, Connecticut to buy renewable electricity was $9.00 a month. I also have been using Biofuel 80/20 which is cheaper per gallon then regular oil because of government kickbacks and my furnace has never run cleaner.
