Falling Trees And Earthday

Well, Saturday April 22nd is Earth Day 2007 (http://www.earthday.net/) and in the spirit of it my neighbor has had 2 old growth oak trees on their property cut down. Not mentioning the fact that the dumbass that they hired dropped part of it on the corner of our garage, Stupid SOB. Looks like there is some structural damage on the eve, roof, face boards and gutters will have to be replaced. So we'll be giving the insurance company a call along with our contractor and maybe a lawyer before it's all said and done. Ryan, the Dekalb County police and I are all under the impression that this fucker is neither insured or bonded and probably not licensed. This will be an ongoing story I'm sure but at least none of us including Munch was hurt.

On a more related subject, have you ever wondered how you affect Global Warming? The website below is a quick survey and then calculates your Ecological Footprint. It does this by taking some information based on how you live your life then it calculates what the impact would be if everyone live his or her life as you do. It's kind of interesting and I think I need to take MARTA more often.

HERE ARE MY FOOTPRINT RESULTS:

CATEGORY

GLOBAL ACRES

FOOD

4

MOBILITY

1.5

SHELTER

5.2

GOODS/SERVICES

4.4

TOTAL FOOTPRINT

15



IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 24 GLOBAL ACRES PER PERSON.

WORLDWIDE, THERE EXISTS 4.5 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE GLOBAL ACRES PER PERSON.

IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 3.4 PLANETS.

I would love to know how you did, if you could please post it as a comment to this thread. Thanks for playing.
