Global Warming

I've been reading a lot of articles on the internet about Global Warming the last couple of days. The UN released a report stating that Global Warming is a result of human activity and if nothing is done to change current emissions patterns of greenhouse gases, global temperature could increase as much as six degrees Celsius by 2100.

David Suzuki has a great website and I joined his Nature Challenge.

I also followed a link from one of his newsletters to the 100 Mile Diet. Hubby and I have agreed to try the 100 mile diet one day a week as a start. We can go to our local farmer's market. This time of year, we'll be eating hothouse vegetables, but as long as they're not transported more than 100 miles (160 km), they're legal. We're also going to check out the Arva Flour Mills just north of the city to see what we can get for locally milled flour. Then we'll dust off the bread machine and make some home made bread. This is going to be an interesting experiment.
