15. That's just plain scary
Edited on Thu Oct-11-07 05:09 PM by knight_of_the_star
The more and more I see data like that the more I become convinced that unless we act NOW and QUICKLY then we will be starting Ragnark in the face with both barrels loaded.


I've long since replaced all the bulbs in the dorm that I can with CFLs, I keep the lights and electronics off when not in use and turn them off when roomies are stupid and forget, I walk to class and ride the bus when I go downtown and when I go in a car its either for groceries or I take as many people going the same way as I can fit and take the most direct routes possible. I don't buy pre-made meals and always check the info on the items I buy to make sure the food is as local as possible. When I go to the gym I walk both ways and only turn on the lights that I need for what I'm doing, not everything on the same floor and only when its so dark out that keeping the blinds open won't do squat. I drive a little commuter car instead of a truck, only thing is I wish I really could do more like solar paneling or getting a hybrid but living in dorms says enough about the means for both.
