It is no secret that there are a few things on our planet Earth we should be keeping an eye on. You can't turn on the TV these days without someone mentioning climate change real or not, electric cars good or bad, and my favorite how bad storms are projected to get over the next few years.

I have to agree it does seem like Mother Nature has been a bit erratic these last few years so I always land on the side of caution in these discussions. I will go on record though, electric cars are not for me. I will promise to use reusable bags to make my contribution. I might even celebrate this year by going to an Eart Day event.
