ostriches and the bush twins - all in one video
a few days ago, i posted a thread about restricting the use of cars to help reduce CO2 emissions because of global warming ... quite a few people really hated that idea ... DU's libertarians came out of the woodwork to offer me curious anatomical uses for automobiles ...

what struck me more than the objection to "government imposed restrictions on their personal freedoms" was a very disturbing unwillingness to think about the problem of global warming in terms of making a personal sacrifice (the video refers to this as the "s word") ... instead of looking for ways we could all "pitch in", there seemed to be a "how dare you" attitude ...

i'm not wedded to restricting auto use if we can sufficiently find alternate ways of addressing the problem ...

the following amusing nine minute video offers some "let's get real" steps every person can take to start reducing CO2 emissions ... some will be happy to know that restricting auto use did not make the list ... i'm not sure why ...

don't be an "ostrich" ... check out the video ...

here are the links -
