Twinkles came to our community in the winter. In case you don’t remember she is the Goddess of the Shimmering Snow and is a true snow bird. She comes IN with the winter weather and she cares about the cleanliness of the snowfall. Toxins in the atmosphere, which make for “dirty snow” are devastating to her.
Well, now it is time for her cousin to come to town. Meet Ronfleur:(eef you vant to know vat my nem meanz luk it up; merci!) She is summer personified! She is carefree in personality but not in the Nature (i.e . the ecosystem.) She is all about fun in the sun BUT, her cause is Climate Change. A problem that is affecting people and the environment worldwide. Greater energy efficiency and new technologies hold promise for reducing greenhouse gases and solving this global challenge.
Ronfleur checks in and works with her cousin to see what they can do to help. Is climate change a concern to you? Are you willing to take these actions (recommended by the EPA) and do your part? … “You release greenhouse gases as a result of using energy to drive, using electricity to light and heat your home, and through other activities that support our quality of life, like growing food, raising livestock and throwing away garbage. Greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced through simple measures like changing light bulbs and properly inflating your tires. The EPA site listed below, provides over 25 easy steps you can take to not only reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, but also reduce air pollution, increase the nation’s energy independence and save money.” As always Reduce, ReUse, ReCycle, ReThink. http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/wycd/index.html
