Now Mrs Edwards endorces the ideas that we should only consume locally grown items to reducethe Carbon Footprint of transporting food around the nation. Mrs Edwards is not going to eat Tangreens because they are not locally grown. Others tells us to turn off the shower when shaving your legs. Another wants us to use one squaire of toilet paper, except for the really messy times. One even suggested that we shower together-That may not be so bad. Scientist tell us that all the palnets are warming up. MAY BE THE SUN IS GETTING HOTTER? Other point to the two known Ice Ages we have had on earth as some proof that man is not totally responsible for Global Warming and that maybe it is a cyclical thing that we willhave to deal with because we cant change MotherNature.

I think some of it is nature and some of it is us. Even if the whole global warming thing were a bunch of crap, we should still be mindful of the earth and be a bit more friendly. I mean we do live on it and nobody wants to live in a dump. I once lived in a city where the air pollution was so bad that I was literally allergic to my city. Everytime I'd travel and come back home, I'd be in the ER with an asthma attack and be out of work for days until my system would get used to the air again. And I have been eating more organic and I do feel better and there is a taste difference as well as quality. I think eating local is a great idea and I do as much as I can, it supports your local economy and means you're getting fresher foods since it hasn't had to sit on a truck for days in traffic to get to you. However I think some things you can't get local, I've never seen a mango tree in AL but I sure love mangos. I think we all need to take some steps but not get all drastic. Oh and as for the toilet paper genious, I don't know who it was but I've heard of it. That idea can only come from someone who has the world's smallest behind.

Mother nature may or may not have something to do with it but we certainly are not helping. There are other resources we can tap into like sun and wind instead of depleting our natural resources. I beleive if we all working together to "clean house" we can accomplish so much, couldn't hurt. The part that scares me is what are we going to leave our children and future generations if we do not try. What if we caused irreversible damage already? I like buying local food for a couple of reasons; first it helps out the local farmer and businesses, keeps our money local; and second - less transport=less pollution, less energy wasted. Even if you can' t get some things locally buy what you can locally, it will be sure to help. I beleive if everyone would just make an effort to conserve, reuse, recycle, and be aware we could all make a big impact.
