Climate Change

You know..the climate changes..to something different.

Climate changeI'm just kidding people, but really It starts to get me thinking sometimes. If each year the average raises a half a degree then it could start to get pretty darn hot! I know that I try and do my part, use less energy and all that jazz, but sometimes its so hard to keep that as a priority. I could definately do more, turn off lights, unplug electronics when Im not using them, recycle.

It's kind of like if every one donated 1 penny to a charity that would be alot of dough. So if we use that concept and everyone cut back one day, then that would be a heck of alot of energy saved!

Some people just shut down when anything about the environment or global warming comes up in conversation, but I urge people to listen, and act! It just takes one penny to make a difference.

  1. Girl we're in the process of changing everything around our house--- talking about going Green, that's us. Our light bill went down from 230 to 109 last month just by adding a few meters to measure our temp. unplug some non-used items, using energy saving light bulbs and its working! I wouldn't have believe it but it's true~ people wold be amazed at the little things they can do that would give back to the earth and have some extra cash to spend.

  3. That is a very good incentive! Extra money! It makes me happy to see that it's the "cool" thing to do, to be green also. Whatever it takes! Also, I bought some reusable grocery bags to use less plastic, but I forget them 9 times out of 10! I need to remind myself more. Forgetfulness is my enemy!

  4. Thanks Steve! That means so much to me! :) I have always felt the drive to do this, and the 50,000 word challenge with NaNoWriMo has kicked it into high gear for me :) BTW it is never to late to do anything!
