Earth Day

In honor of the recent Earth Day on April 22nd I thought I’d list some things that would truly help us be good stewards of the earth God has put us in.

– Switch to incandecent light bulbs made in the U.S. from florecents made in China that have to be shipped half way around the world.

– Turn on more lights to show my support for cheap/evironmentally freindly nuclear power.

– Protest Cap and Trade wealth redistribution that would tax the U.S. while holding us to a higher standard than other nations to prevent a problem we aren’t causing.

– Stick with my non-hybrid car which runs on gas rather than switch to a coal powered electric vehicle which would have a half dozen batteries to dispose of at the end of its life.

OK, I know you could poke holes in most of these, but don’t miss my point which is that many of the things touted as environmental benefits often aren’t.
