And Ketchup is a Vegetable
Oh yes...apparently the auto industry is lining up solidly behind the US position that we can only deal with this issue on a global scale, that we just can't tackle it independently. Does anyone remember the name Kyoto? As in treaty? As in we walked away from that one, which would have mandated international reduction of greenhouse gasses.
You know, everyone can do one thing to reduce their carbon imprint. It may not seem like much, but multiply that tiny reduction in power used or gasoline burned by millions and it matters. I no longer use a power mower to mow my grass, and I only use my clothes dryer when it's raining. I use the energy efficient light bulbs and I keep lights off in rooms where I am not. I keep my house cool -- 60 degrees most of the time. (Colder in the morning!) I take light rail downtown when I have to go, although biking everywhere isn't really a safe option with our high speed rural roads with no shoulder. I'm not trying to be holier than thou here...what I am trying to do is list a few ways you CAN make that small difference without really altering your lifestyle dramatically. Remember...multiply that by millions.
Okay, back to the sticky scene. Maybe I'll leave the radio turned off for awhile.
