LA Bans single use plastic bags. Finally!

June 18, 2013 5:52 pm

LA finally makes the only responsible choice and bans single use plastic bags. It is just a matter of time for the rest of the nation to follow suit. But when?

There are plastic gyres around the world, floating in the ocean, some exceeding the size of France or Texas in square footage. It is a disgrace.

This is one step in reducing that waste and forging a path towards sustainable living. Well done Los Angeles!

400 PPM

May 13, 2013 5:40 pm

400. That is the symbolic milestone of concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere in parts per million. It is increasing at the rate of 2.5 PPM per year and seems to accelerate. Not in at least one million years has the planet seen such high concentration of carbon dioxide and other heat trapping gases in the atmosphere.
If you wonder what it means, this is the most direct threat to humanity and most living species that have thrived on this planet for the last 65 million years.
We cannot grow in perpetuity in a finite environment. It is time to have less and do more, and do more intelligently with what we have at our disposal.
