Local Pollution

Josh Jones just put a link on facebook where you can type in your zipcode and it will tell you the biggest local polluters. I wasn’t suprised to find that electricity generation is our biggest polluter. There is a lot of information on this link I think that is good to know about our county and is also a to do list if you want to look at it that way. A list of what we will leave to future generations or a list of things to fix before we leave it to future generations. It’s really our choice, at the national and international level it is almost impossible to get things done, but the local level is more doable. You not only vote on election day, you vote every time you spend money. You can vote for local food or food grown thousands of miles away. You can vote for clean energy or dirty energy. Vote well, your kids and grandkids will have to live with your decisions. The scorecard site is listed in my home category on the right of my blogpage.
