Go Green: How To Change As An Individual For A Cleaner Environment and Better Climate - Really


Here are the ways one would go green, or live in a more energy efficient and cost efficient way for themselves, a better climate, and environment. These are fairly simple, they just need to become a habit. A lot of time it can't become a habit because we are so busy. This involves remembering to do these things and not all of us are in the best situations in that we are inclined to care. 

However, even upon crappy non-progressive days we must care because a hurricane, twister, tornado, cyclone, tropical storms, tsunamis, or rising waters or flooding will not deter or stop because we're having a bad day or year. In my case, remember the Tropical Storm Floyd.

Going Green Involves

Household Energy Use
Unplug devices that are not being used. Turn off lights in rooms. Charge up devices to use them most of the day, which all saves energy and money on electric bills.

Solar Panel
Invest in solar panels or just one. This reduces dependence on electricity and how much you pay for your electric bill.

Tap Water
Try to, TRY to drink kitchen sink water. This can mean making drinks like lemonades, teas, whatever drinks that you can create or ice water even.

Small is Good
Invest in a smaller house or a house that fits the needs for your family with small land. This reduces the waste and destruction of forest and land. Smaller homes keeps space from being wasted and save money and energy.

Commute, Bike, Walk and Reduce Emissions
This involves trains, buses, walking and cycling. This is is good for people living in a city or metro area where there are plenty of commuting means and businesses are under a mile or less.
Now in the South or towns where things can be miles away, we would need to decrease how often we have to drive to our stores and businesses. The way we can decrease commuting is by making a list of the things we need to get when going to the store. So, do a quick walk-through in the house to see what you need, make a list and then get everything in one fell swoop. Also, carpool to work if it is feasible. 

Recycle and Reuse
We must use recycle bins. We must try to reuse plastics and glass for any reason we can think of.

Food Consumption and Gardening
Most of us in America dont have a problem with this. We don't waste food. Keeping food from waste is important, but is hard because it means being mindful of how much just you or you and your family consume which is excellently done by mothers and most of the rest of us suck at. We can master this I feel and refrain from allowing our foods to waste. We need to be mindful or what we use and how much of it we use when we invest in it.
Growing food is great. And it comes naturally for all the green thumbs, so grow foods. Grow vegetables that you like to eat. I am a broccoli, mushroom, green, yellow, red pepper, and spinach person. For the ones that can't grow foods, you can always visit your local farmer's market. 

No Polluting
We have to use a trash can, trash barrel, trash bin, or trash bag when we are disposing of trash. It is common to drop it when walking because we don't want to carry it, but we must push ourselves to wait until we get to a trashcan. Trash gets into our waters which can cause health issues, death to lifeforms and animals, and also there can be an increase in rats, which is what we don't want because they are very smart creatures.

Natural Cleaners
Okay, on this one I don't have too much to give on. Some people use vinegar and water to clean and something called Borax. However, baking soda is a good cleaning agent and so is hydrogen peroxide and micofiber cloths for cleaning.

Last: Spread the Word and Put Up A Reminder List
Encourage everyone to do these things and keep a short list as your daily reminder.

And there you have it, this is the green initiative for the individual who cares to embrace it. Habit is key even with me, and surely but certainly we will get to better environments.

Go Green: Ignore Climate Change and Die


We are in the times of rampant spontaneous storms, ever rising waters, and dying lifeforms. We as human beings have a responsibility not just to ourselves but the lifeforms that we are superior to. To have those in power of Government and/or of industry turn their backs on the influences of humans on the climate, the earth's condition, because of a refusal to change, profit or some other personal endeavors is not just stupid, non-progressive, and increasing dependence, but lazy. 






We all must change. Change is important. Change will end dependence, foster new ideas, better innovations, and all for everyone to live better lives. 



Climate change may not be touching everyone yet, but it will. Earth is a living star, unbalanced by our influences on the climate, therefore dangerous to us and our global community members. 
We, the people, must change even if the powerful won't. If we change, everything must change with us.

Go Politics: Undermining = Stupid


Trump and his administration want to continue trying to use nonrenewable energy. They think it would be good to drill in national monuments now and mine in them. It is obvious he's trying to please billionaires and millionaires on this energy level. It is also obvious he's trying to stop all programs that Obama started and his administration. And yes, he really doesn't care about our ability to live and exist as humans and lifeforms, possibly because the only way he could win the election is by the electoral college.

The bottom line is, trying to undermine someone for purposes of revenge and one's own pompousness is always destructive and stupid. This need to ruin our renewable energy and environmental programs will stop our swift ability to change the way we use energy. This hinders our ability to end the dependence on a energy (oil) that can and will deplete, and worse, that we have no universal replacement or substitute for. 
Oil is used everywhere in almost everything. In a couple years or less, it may be gone. This undermining of great renewable energy programs for no other purpose but to be better than Obama and the previous administration is wasteful and stupid, or, very not smart for all you sensitive Trump supporters. And sadly, all this administration is doing so far this 100 days is wasting time and hindering progress.
