After the Copenhagen Failure, What Now?
I’m not one to overload this blog with political diatribe. I know that folks come here for lawn care information and sneaking in other stuff can be a turn-off to our members and followers.
After watching the film Climate Refugees, however, I was paying particular attention to the recent climate conference in Copenhagen, where the world’s leaders really missed the mark on doing anything of substance. This commentary from the UK really spells out the issues involved: http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-after-the-catastrophe-in-copenhagen-its-up-to-us-1846366.html.
It’s important to note that if you follow the principles of organic lawn care, you’re actually contributing greatly to a reduction in greenhouse gases. You’re also reducing pollution, conserving resources and saving yourself money. And, believe it or not, you’re helping the economy long term — even though many lawn care professionals would argue otherwise. So maybe you’re not helping their economy when you forsake chemical fertilizers and pesticides, but you’re helping your own bottom line. That gives you far more money to spend in other ways!
