Global Warming

Flying to all of those snorkel-friendly destinations can really add to your carbon footprint. Tomorrow is Earth Hour, a global environmental movement started last year in Sydney, Australia. Basically, if we all shut off our lights for one hour, we can make a huge impact in the amount of carbon emissions we put in the atmosphere (which contribute to global warming). To participate, simply turn off all non-essential lights between the hours of 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM on March 29th. You'll be joined by cities around the world including San Francisco, Dublin, Copenhagen, and Melbourne. You can make a candlelit vegan dinner! Speaking of which, being vegan can make a huge impact on the Earth. The livestock industry is a major player in global warming. Vegan Outreach explains the environmental impact of being vegan.

I love stuff like this! The way a small action can have such a huge impact when a lot of people do it collectively. I'm in! and I'll post a reminder on my blog. Thanks for passing along the information.
