I had recently been thinking about the environmental impact of living on my own.

I live in a house with 4 other people/apartments. I only have 2.5 room. I don't drive a car anymore - so I walk, bike or take public transit. I use less electricity because someone isn't constantly turning a light on so I can read by it. (low light is just fine to read by for me.)

That said, I do have to jump out of the tub on a semi-regular basis for forgotten things - the phone that rings, the cat's trying to open the fridge, etc. Of course, I take baths - not showers anymore, so probably less water is wasted.

Can we now tell the children of this generation "You know there are thirsty children in Africa?" if they say they want soda or juice instead of water?(I heard the starving child line over and over in my childhood.)

Yeah, it's probably to say that. I've only used the starving line on my kids once or twice.

Hmm, I'll have to remember that one for our next argument!

Knowledge is power!


Divorce is really a bad thing not just for the people involve,but for global warming?That is an eye opener for me.

Thanks for the info.:D
