I started back in February setting up this account so I could try my hand at writing a blog. Well now it is already the middle of April and I am still working on it. So this may be a short blog just to see how it goes.
I am very interested in the environment; specifically global warming and I have become addicted to watching the weather. Sadly yesterday there was a series of tornadoes that ripped through the Southeast. There were wildfires in Texas and Oklahoma. And there is water rationing in Mexico City. All of these have to do with Climate Change.
My husband says that a better name for global warming would have been climate chaos. As the atmosphere warms everything moves just a touch faster those putting more energy into the global system. This causes extreme weather events.
I have fears that the events like happened this week are going to become more regular. I am sure that my actions to reduce my carbon footprint are not going to change the current trend. Yet if I become a role model then others may also see there are other ways of doing things and they may change some habits and become a role model for others. I like to think of it as a positive ponzi scheme.
So here is my first tip. To save energy usage air dry your clothes using a laundry drying rack or a clothes line.
Wish me luck on my blog writing endeavors.
