Earth Day

Today is the 39th observance of Earth Day.

So what do you do to minimize your impact?

Personally I have switched out all the incandescent light bulbs for CFL’s, I recycle as much as possible (although we could do better at work), I have switched to a programmable thermostat, and I try to cut back on my use of excess energy. I’m sure there are other ways that I’ve changed my ways to be more eco-friendly over the last 40 years or so, but they’re so much a part of my life I don’t even think about them when I do them.

Meanwhile, the Florida legislature is working to approve a bill to open up state waters to oil drilling, some as close as three miles from shore. Way to celebrate, guys.
