TODAY’S CONVERSATON STARTER

 
All the commitments to individual action that people offer here are laudable. But such action is a companion, and NOT a substitute, for corporate and governmental accountability that must be legislated.

There comes a time in everyone's life when you have to take a radical decision. A decision that maybe it will change your life. Only when I think about it I feel an empty stomach. Rating: -762

Shell could serve up more than self-serving ads if they put their weight behind promoting a climate change clean energy policy for America, instead paying lobbyists to stop it. Rating: + 838

Astroturfing ads in papers is a great way to rally the people into thinking that something positive is getting done. "Clean Coal" is real too. Rating: -13

I wrote “Sustainable Gardening for Florida” to help people save water, time and $$. Using my suggestions, they can also eat from their yards, reduce their lawns, and retain more storm water by using rain barrels and installing rain gardens. Rating: -869

I want to be part of a major oil company's greenwashing campaign so that they look like the opposite of what they really are. For example, by turning off my computer at night, I can help undo some of the damage that Shell did in Nigeria. Right? Rating: + 1627

Intall power strips for your computer and peripherals, and for your TV set and DVD player; then just click the switch each night. Clean your refrigerator coils and your dryer vents. Install energy saving lightbulbs. Do these things and save 15-20% on your electric bill.......I did! Rating: + 1

I write an energy and sustainability column weekly, and have turned my small cottage into a green energy demonstration site. We drive a Prius and have switched to a pellet stove, turned our front yard into a garden for organic produce, can our own tomatoes, peppers and fruit, compost, recycle, and purchase energy efficient appliances.
