On Tuesday, I attended a forum on “Climate Change” at nearby Bluffton University. [Having a small liberal arts college in our backyard has provided an absolute wealth of research information.] Toledo University Environmental Science Professor Andrew Jorgensen travels the country with a warning. The cliff note is that global warming is, indeed, real and that we’re approaching a dangerous stage. Perhaps his most eye-opening statistic was that three “countries” in the world (U.S., China and the EU) are responsible for half the carbon dioxide emissions. And per capita, Americans by far, generate the most. [In effect our lifestyles majorly responsible for: “gassing” the world — triggering drought, famine, rising sea levels, super-charged hurricanes…] Professor Jorgensen said Europe is proactively becoming greener, and we need to follow suit. He mentioned driving less, car pooling, bicycling, taking public transportation. He suggested insulating houses way better, and dialing back the heat and air conditioning. He suggested moving to way more LED lighting.
