In recognition of the Live Earth concerts happening all around the world today (who's intent is good, even if I am dubious of the actual "greenness" of the event itself) I thought that I would tip everyone off to the efforts of my friend, Ken Luna. Ken had this revelation a couple years ago, that if you gave every child in the USA a Compact Fluorescent Light bulb to replace a regular incandescent bulb you could reduce greenhouse emissions. You can see more about Ken's efforts here:
Ken is a sweet guy, we teach in the same district, we have the same solar contractor (yup, my house is solar too) and he has some great ideas. Let's hear it for the regular folk trying to make a difference.
