Global What?

As you can see, I reside in the ARID-ZONE. Originally from New Jersey, I've learned to like it here. Winters are mild. I can ride my motorcycle year round. People are relatively friendly (in my experience). At least more so, than on the East Coast.

This year we experienced some record cold temps for winter, dipping as low as below freezing in some parts of the Valley. Is this the opposite of Global Warming? My trees and plants are burnt from the freeze and I would like an "inconvenient" explanation for this.

And I found a chocolate company that charges a $6.95 premium to mail Arizonans some of their organic chocolate. Is that fair? Should consumers eat that cost? I mean if we give you our business...I'll let you know how they respond.

Wish I had more to say today but my office job is draining my brain. I'm unhappy but frozen by fear to pursue more exciting opportunities. Plus, I like getting to work from home. Sigh...

Till next time!

Stay Green,

Must see movie: An Inconvenient Truth
My latest green effort: 1)Installed a CFL in my office lamp. I love it. It's nice to be rid of the "yellow" and it's bright enough to complete any task. Bonus: It's supposed to last for 9 years. I paid $4.97 at Home Depot.

2) Joined Co-op America for Economic Action

Green: What does it mean?

"Congratulations, gorgeous, you've found me! Now what are you gonna do with me?"

Now that I've finally decided to join the Blogger community long after it's inception, I plan to use this forum to share with you the "Green" or "Earth-friendly" links, thoughts, ideas, etc. that I find.

Warning: my thoughts are often scattered and disorganized!

Like you, I'm sure, a "Green Lifestyle" has always been something that I've wanted to pursue further but just never bothered to research. Well those days are over, folks! If we don't start making changes in our daily wasteful, little lives right now, the Earth and it's future generations will surely suffer.

Why should you care? I'll tell you why! Because this isn't just about you, my friend! If you have children or grandchildren, it's self-explanatory. How you live affects others - period. And because living responsibly...well, feels good!

Being green simply means making an effort to leave Earth in the same or better condition than when you arrived.
"Leaving a lighter footprint" should be a goal for all of us so that future generations can enjoy these lands as we have.

Green Living Tip #1: Replace lights that you use most with a Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) Bulb and save energy and $$ with a quickness!

If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR, we would save enough energy to light more than 2.5 million homes for a year and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of nearly 800,000 cars.*
