So I watched the program that aired on Nat Geo the other night entitled "The Human Footprint" where that examine what each persone consumes, discards, and purchases throughout their lifetime. Now granted the amounts were averaged, but it is quite amazing to see what an effect an individual has on the environment. The show was actually so-so in terms of entertainment, but it made a just point. Do you do anything to decrease your carbon footprint? *RANT I'M SURE YOU'VE HEARD BEFORE* I am not a tree hugger by all means, but I have long highly believed that one day all the crap we throw away and consume will catch up to us. It's not IF, but WHEN. We as Americans are slobs. We throw away everything and take no consideration as to where it goes from there. Have you ever been to a landfill? It's sickening! Mountains of trash releasing God-knows-what into our streams. People think that they alone cannot make a difference, but you can. Plant a 10 trees in your lifetime and you would be doing alot, though it seems so little. Replace 3 lighbulbs in your house with compound flourescent bulbs and you will not only lower you bill, but help the air. Small changes in your daily lifestyle can make a big difference. Not only that, alot of states, including my own does not make recycling mandentory, so there is plenty of landfill here. OOhhh how I love living in my own trash. *END OF RANT* So what do you do? Anything? Recycle? All the aluminum scrap from my cases and the cans from the sodas I drink get turned into money and recycled. I turned my water heater down 2 degrees and put an insulating blanket on it. My electric bill dropped $30! Our generation has to give a Sh*t because WE WILL be affected by it. Thanks for hearing me out.
