When I see a street construction project I’m often reminded of how expensive road infrastructure is to develop and even more expensive to update at the end of its lifecycle. Research (and basic accounting) help demonstrate that roads and infrastructure in suburbia is not only a substantial GHG emitter…
Standing on this local trail got me thinking of the future. Do we follow the existing path to a dark and uncertain future or do we carve out a new path to the more hopeful blue-skied future in the distance? The choice lies with each of us, but I know which route I’ll be taking.
I was overwhelmed to see such beauty serenity and the never-ending shore of Lake Superior. I feel privileged at this very moment to have seen the rocky coast of the lake; to have felt the fresh water on my skin; and to be able to bask under the sun. I want to keep having this experience in the years to come. Nature is powerful, yet its beauty is sublime.
I have started being mindful of serving only as much I can eat. We can always go for some more in the second helping if need be. With climate change arises the problem of food insecurity. Crops are failing because of unusual changes in temperature. Save food for the hungry.
One use for water retained by rain barrels is the maintenance of healthy plants. Water can be used as needed which means that the surface runoff during storms is eliminated (reduced flooding) and the demand for city water is reduced (reduced water bills). Also, locally produced vegetables eliminate the greenhouse gases (GHGs) associated with industrial agriculture, storage, transport and distribution of food.
