    I recommend you take the time to view the story about bottled water.  I try to avoid buying it whenever possible.

    So happy that summar has arrived. And since I broke part of the auto timer on my living room lamp, it now turns only in the evening.  Not a problem because the sun is on it's way up with I get up in the morning.  I don't plan on fixing it either.  So I save a few hours of lamp time.

      Sorry about the spelling error.  I am happy that Summer has arrived, not summar.

    My challenge is frustrating in that there are so many issues to address, especially as an individual.  I'd rather get behind one or two causes and make a difference.  Perhaps as a group we push for state legislation to ban all plastic grocery bags by the year 2020.  Since we represent multiple states in our Comerica group, this could be a meaningful change in a few years. 

    On another note, here's a link to a recent article on Global Warming model risks, which suggest we are underestimating the what is really happening to our environment. https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2018/6/8/17437104/climate-change-global-warming-models-risks

    • Absolutely! I think everyone approaches combating climate change differently. Some might like to put their effort in many different areas but perhaps in smaller capacities, versus putting that effort into one or two causes. Both do their part and it is whatever feels best and most manageable to you. Thank you for sharing the resource link.
