Oops…the CFL Challenge-Doing a bit for climate change
I’m so far behind in blog-o-rama…oh well; the joys of holidays 🙂 (more on the funny road names outside of chilliwack in a later post…)
Anyways, a few days ago Duane decided to start up the CFL challenge. As we’ve recently been informed, it appears there’s an 85% possibility that global warming has indeed been caused by humans. It’s obvious that we as a society need to be more cognizant of the damage we do to our planet. As I wrote in this post a while back, it could be as easy as not having standard lightbulbs available. Well Duane has taken it one step further and actually instituted a challenge. Basically the idea is that we all switch our current lightbulbs to CFL bulbs. And take pics to prove it. Now, I generally only use CFL’s cuz they last longer and being a short guy with an irrational fear of standing on ladders or chairs, I hate changing them. I said that earlier. I don’t have a camera, so my pics will be light hehe.
So I’m going to take the challenge one step further. I’m going to set it up like blog tag, and send my challenge to specific peoples. Since Kasia and Duane are already involved, I’m gonna have to pick 5 other people. So: Stephen Fung, Andrea, Rosie, Ruth (with your secret blogs 😉 ), Jeff Pulver, Andy Abramson and (taking a longshot that he’ll actually ever see this) Wil Wheaton (who by the way wrote a great post a little while back about climate troubles)…you guys are up. I know u folks in California may soon have only CFL’s available anyways, but post the challenge! Post it, blog it, take pics if u can. And spread the challenge to at least 5 others! Yes I know I put down more than 5, but I wanted to spread it out a bit between personal, industry and just good reads. If we all do a little thing maybe we can make a difference.
So good call Duane!
