I’m working on an assignment about global warming.
As my sister would say, Geezus.
This is scary stuff. I’ve already been reduced to running around the house turning off lights and asking my son to show me how to change the air filter in the car (changing it monthly can save 800 pounds of carbon dioxide from spewing into the air a year. And it that doesn’t convince you, maybe this will: it will also save you $130 a year in cold, hard cash.)
I said this post was only tangentially related to writing, but in a way that’s not true.
Global warming is related to everything. Because if we don’t deal with it now, everything is going to get pretty miserable in the next 50 years.
Now excuse me while I go turn out some more lights.
PS. Tomorrow I’m going to start a list of links to some great organizations with tons of information on global warming. It’ll be worth your while to check them out.
