I'm down to one gas guzzler vehicle, not 2, (only because the 2nd one was wrecked)..
Have the wreck buried. The rust will feed the earth.

I'm going to leave it out front, fill it with dirt, and use it for a flower bed, my neighbors would love that in the new neighborhood.. haha.

I'm already hearing my only car cry about being lonely, I'll make sure my next one will be a huge gas guzzler.. gotta help out the planet you know and encourage less people to drive by helping to raise the price of fuel...

I haven't flown in ten years. I live without air conditioning.

May I ask - what part of the country do you live in?

Once I heard that the waste engine oil you return is just burned up for heat in special furnaces at shops, I dug a hole in the back of my garage and have been pouring my used engine oil in it ever since.

I try to hold in my farts. Farts produce methane in some people; methane is a potent greenhouse gas.

Keep up the good work. I am glad to see you are doing your part to be "green". I just hope you dont spontaneously combust and release a giant cloud of methane that will choke off all live on earth as we know it!

This is good in moderation. Be careful of side-effects, however.

Every other issue (i.e., the war on terrorism, the economy, etc.) is dwarfed by the catastrophic consequences posed by global warming. It is a frightening prospect, and very real. We can see the ice melting at an accelerating pace, and we know what is sure to follow; and yet we fail to act to stop the pollution that is the precipitating cause of the impending ecological disaster. It will be late to counsel then or pray when the devastation brought about by abrupt climate change has been visited upon us. It is no joke - as you shall soon see.
Global warming has been proven many times to be a fraudulent crime by Al Gore. If global warming did exist, the rest of the planets wouldn't be going through global warming. It is a known fact that other planets are heating up too.

I can remember the theories of the coming "ICE AGE" back in the early 70's.

Could there be something in common with all the planets in our solar system that might cause them all to warm at the same time??

By the way, I do use CFB in my home.
