My Lord my head is exploding today with all of the Environmental News!!! First My Rushie. Boy does he have some people riled up...Oh wait, that's Politics. It's Glenn Beck, he is the one that has the many in the Environmental Community pissed as hell because of his comments about "Global Warming" or the lack thereof. His comments this morning , which I listened to live (is it live or recorded live? I don't know.) were based on a Discovery Channel News article titled Global Warming: On Hold?.
It is no secret that Glenn Beck does not believe in Global Warming and he certainly does not believe that Human's carbon emissions are causing it. When he latched onto the Discovery News article , which I believe was based on a study paid for by Exxon, he bit hard. Those of you who follow this blog know that I am in discovery mode on Global Warming and am not sure it is something that has actually been cyclically occurring for a long time. I certainly am not sure we are the cause. Anyway, bloggers are blogging and people are having heated discussions and I think it is great. God at least people are paying attention to ways in which we can all save energy! Let's just keep it respectful folks -K?
The other fab eco-news is that Connecticut's attorney general says six companies have agreed to stop manufacturing baby bottles that contain Bisphenol-A, a chemical we know well here at EHWB. Studies suggest BPA may be harmful to infants as well as the rest of us. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal says Avent, Disney First Years, Gerber, Dr. Brown, Playtex and Evenflow have agreed to the request. The companies stopped manufacturing bottles with BPA a couple of weeks ago.
This is so wonderful. Doesn't the FDA website still say this stuff is safe? Guess what? People are getting smart, waking up and letting their voices be heard through with their wallets and voices! Tons of moms and dads stopped buying plastic baby bottles and started talking to their legislators. Guess what? Our legislators really do have backbones...they can make the right choice to stand up to Big Business and their Lobbyists.
Well done people.
