One thing I would strongly urge everyone to do is go rent "An Inconvenient Truth". It's a good movie for getting some info on how the ocean currents help cool the sea temps and what happens when the ocean gets warmer and warmer. I found it very eye opening and sad. What am I doing as a person about this? Well I signed up through my local county for their Master Composter/ Recycler program so I can teach others about how to lesson your "carbon footprint" and reduce waste while mending soils for healthier plants.
