Earth Day.. Was Yesterday



In case you didn't notice, yesterday was Earth Day.

I'm convinced that there's som sort of unwritten rule that at least 99% of the population is forbidden from thinking about the planet, the environment, and the effects that we have on them EXCEPT on this day.

What did I do in honor of Earth Day? Not a heck of a lot. I walked to lunch instead of jumping in my car (it was raining, and I didn't have an umbrella). When I got home, I kept most of the lights off at home (I've got CFL bulbs anyway, so this wasn't a big contribution to the health of the planet). And at one point I considered trying to find a source of scrap/broken solar panels, salvaging what was usable, and making refurb solar panels (hard to lookup when you don't have internet access at home).

    To answer unlikelymoose's question about tomorrow, it has only taken me over five years. Five years = tomorrow if you do some sort of weird daylight unsavings time.

    When I re-skimmed your post, the solar panel part made me think of: what would happen if we grafted one quarter of the Earth's surface with another planet's surface? We take a good chunk of the planet Naboo's surface and grafted it onto Earth's?

    I'm guessing lots of things would die.

    Here's what the Mars surface graft would look like on Earth: http://www.spudart.org/blogs/randomthoughts_comments/5832_0_3_0_C/

    You completely ignored the scale of the planets!
