Writer's Block: Let the sun shine in...

Do you believe in global warming? Do you think the sustainability concept is undervalued, valid, or taken too far?

I definitely believe in Global Warming. And I think it's sad that lots of people don't recycle when it's so easy to do. :/ Even in my own home, my Mom and I have to work against the tide (aka Joe) to get any kind of recycling done. I swear he is just against it to drive me crazy. He tears up papers and cardboard boxes... and then throws them it the trash. We have a bag in the closet maybe 10 feet away for recycling! It's not that hard to do. He even yelled at me when I tried to dump the paper from the shredder into the recycling bag instead of the trash. Ugh. Now, I just do it when he's not around.

Meanwhile, I can't say I'm doing every thing I could. I know I should switch drinking bottled water for a filter and aluminum bottles. They are even supposed to be better for your health, but I can't seem to get it together and switch. It's made more difficult by the fact that I have to fight against Joe for anything I want to do. I just don't have the energy for such a big project right now. At least, I recycle the plastic bottles, right? That's better than most people. *Sighs*
