What Have You Done To Combat Global Warming Today?

Posted: June 8, 2008 in Technology and Business
People still have trouble understanding the impact of global warming.  "What’s a few degrees gonna matter?"
 
The best way I’ve heard it described is this:  Water at about 209 degrees doesn’t look much different than 210 or 211 degrees… but go up just a single degree to 212… and all hell breaks loose.
 
So, a single degree DOES make a difference.
 
What difference are you going to make?
 
 
Please go to his website — The Solution is Simple — and make your voice heard.
 
I did. 
 
And, I’m also doing most, if not all, of my freeway driving at 55-60 mph using my cruise control… which is really, really hard when you like driving fast cars fast… and get unrelenting passenger (a.k.a. wife) peer pressure.  But that, and slooow acceleration and deceleration, makes your driving about 1/3 (!) more efficient.
 
Why am I doing it? 
 
I’m tired of being utterly dependent on a crazy place like the Middle East. 
 
I’m tired of war and a wobbly economy and a wayward dollar.
 
I’m tired of ruining the planet. 
 
I shudder at the mess we’re — I’m — leaving my daughter.
