I think this says it all:
Everyone knows it. We caused this mess.
Now, am I going to chain myself to a tree and march in a protest? Hell no. But it has made me more mindful about the future. (The hurricane, and watching Revolution....)
I'm getting to the age where someday I'll actually try to buy a house again.
Now I know to make sure that I'm not in a tidal surge area. I'm also thinking that having a wood burning stove (you know... for heat and to cook on), might not be a bad move.
Currently, I do what I can. I reuse much of the junk paper that gets sent my way. I recycle at work. (There's no recycling for apartments in Virginia).
