Al Gore just addressed Congress on the subject of Global Warming. He stated that new studies show that the Arctic ice cap was melting more rapidly that previous estimates and that it could completely disappear in as little as 34 years. “The problem is burning a hole at the top of the world in the ice cover…that is one of the principle ways our planet cools itself.” He said that “if it goes it won’t come back on any time scale relavent to the human species.” That is a very serious comment to ponder upon.

For a complete review of the former Vice President’s comments regarding Global Warming and the emissions of CO2’s and the counter arguments, go to www.MSNBC.com. There is a video and article, Gore Takes Warming Warnings to Congress.

As Gore said, the climate issue should not be a partisan or even a political issue. Do what you can to Live Green. It just makes good sense.

Have a great day,

Donna

There is ever an on-going discussion as to the legitamacy of Global Warming. There is a video on the web called Global Warming Swindle. It is on “You Tube.” It’s about 75 minutes long and very interesting; however…

I can’t help wonder why Global Warming should be a choice between being a legitmate concern or swindle. Why do we have to choose sides? Why do we have to be in this continuing debate and determine exactly who’s right and who’s wrong?

We have more people than ever before existing on this planet together. We have more industry and we’ve lived so differently in the last one hundred years than ever before. Why not just consider it good stewardship to do whatever we can to take care of “Mother Earth”?

Even if the changes are “normal” as the experts in the above video express,  we know that never before has man contributed so much of the CO2’s going out into the atmosphere as a result of progress in the last century. So whether it be the cause or not, what is the harm in simply doing what we can to help the planet. Let’s just be good stewards of this beautiful place we all call home, be responsible, and Live Green as much as possible. 

Pliny the Elder, 28-79 AD, who devoted his life to writing about nature, made this notation:

“It is the Earth, like a kind mother, receives us at our birth, and sustains us when we are born…Earth, gentle and indulgent, ever subservient to the wants of man, spreads his walks with flowers, and his table with plenty, returns with interest every good committed to her care; and though she produces the poison, she still supplies the anti-dote; though constantly teased the more to furnish the luxuries of man than his necessities, yet, even to the last, she continues her kind indulgence, and when life is over, she piously hides his remains in her bosom.”

Let’s treat “her” kindly.

Take care,

Donna

Boy, the debate continues on Global Warming. “Experts” continue to give Al Gore a hard time.

Tell that to some citizens of Alaska. Wonder what reaction they’d give the “experts”? Way up North the permafrost is disappearing, leaving homes to sink into oblivion if the homes aren’t moved.

Even if they are moved, the citizens tell us, it won’t be long before they’d just have to move them again, or they’ll be forced to relocate to somewhere else. If you want further examples, go to www.weather.com/onedegree . It is an interesting web site. Alaska’s temperature in the far north has increased over 6 degrees according to the video. That’s making a huge difference in the environment for man and animals. Elsewhere in the world the changes  taking place are incredibly noticeable, from floods to drought. Go see for yourself. Send others there. The site is quite fair in its reporting.

More tomorrow…  Live Green!

God bless you,

Donna & Stephen

Recently a newspaper article reported that a coal-fired generation plant for electricity was going to be built between the cities of Texakana and Hope,  in beautiful, pristine Arkansas “to offset the higher cost of running natural gas-fired plants.”  They reassure the populace that “the plant would employ the latest technology to limit such pollutants as mercury, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and carbon dioxide.”

I empathize with the concern the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, and local citizens have for potential pollutants entering the atmosphere such as mercury emissions, acid rain, or Global Warming effects,  plus the use of 6000 gallons of water  a minute out of a local lake. Species such as the bald eagle, the American alligator, the wood stork, the interior least tern, and a rare mussel  called the Quachita rock pocketbook are found nearby and are on the threatened or endangered species list. 

Even if the latest technology is used to partially curb impending pollution,  can we be absolutely certain that will be no harm to man or animal in the long run? Is it worth the chance? Economics says it is. We have to ask ourselves, however: Is there another way in the future so that these issues won’t have to be weighed in the balance and we, perhaps, be wrong in the decisions we make, decisions that could be irreversible?

Alternatives exist. They are our future. It is possible to use methods to produce sustainable energy for us to Live Green and not endanger ourselves, our children, our children’s children, or the precious wildlife around us that needs our protection. 

God bless-Have a beautiful Sunday,

Donna

It is so sad when a magnificent species like the polar bear that we have come to admire and respect for their strength and beauty are at risk because of the “debated” Global Warming. As it was reported today, their diet, in order to remain healthy, includes seals and other animals with a high fat content. Land animals do not have the same high fat content. Because of the lack of floating ice shelfs, they are having a problem getting around in the ocean. They have to swim so far to hunt without being able to rest periodically. Oh, “experts” tell us that they can eat the caribou and other animals from land. However, that’s not their normal diet. Mr. Al Gore reported on this when he first started lecturing with his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, and it’s getting worse.  Those “experts” say that polar bears can eat land animals so it’s not an urgent matter even though they are competing for food with the grizzlies whose natural food source is the caribou. 

Sounds like the electric companies that have disclosed plans to build 150 more coal-fired plants to  “meet the growing electricity demand” in our nation.  Can you imagine? There are presently 1400 coal-fired plants operating nationwide that produce about half the nation’s electricity according to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers: Major CO2’s-greenhouse gas emissions- going into the atmosphere.

We are grateful for electricity.  However, we have the technology to use alternatives to coal source energy in this modern era. There’s solar energy power, wind power, etc... When are we going to stop debating the issue and simply realize we have to and can do something different regarding our energy sources for our home, planet earth, NOW?

That’s all for tonight. Live Green…Peace, Donna

An Ohio State physicist hopes to see more homes powered by solar panels in the future to ward off global warming.  The University has even just received an endowment of over 18 million dollars to build a solar cell development center. More and more academics are focusing on the need for alternative energy sources, and using th sun’s energy just makes perfect sense. It is always there for us to use. We just have to have a an affordable way to convert the energy.

For those who have wanted to get solar, the cost of installation and maitenance can be enormous! It can cost multiples of thousands of dollars to install solar on the average home purchased through dealers and stores.  For a homeowner to see any net return on their investment, it would take many, many years to do so. However, there is one company that is designing a sytem that will make it affordable for you to have solar on your own home!

Homeowners, instead of purchasing, will be leasing the solar panels with all installation, maintenance, and monitoring taken care of by the company.  There will be no investment of money or time by the property owner. The homeowner will lock in their current electric rate for up to 25 years, and be charged a one-time deposit of only $500.00 which will accrue interest. If you get any utility for your home there is usually a deposit, and the same will be true of solar now.

In a day when energy costs continue to rise, this is one way to lock in your current electric rates for up to 25 years. And, you can contribute to changing the way you use energy and stop contributing to CO2 emissions into the environment. This is so exciting. We have been wanting to put solar on our home for many years; however, the costs were out of reach. Now it isn’t.

How about you? If you’ve been wanting to explore new energy sources, call us(see number below). We’ll be happy to explain the program. It is very simple to do, and you can contribute so much to the environment. Join with us today.

Bye for now, Donna
