Follow-up to "How Many Earths?"

Last Sunday in my address on eco-friendly choices I mentioned a book by the Union of Concerned Scientists. The title is The Consumer’s Guide to Effective Environmental Choices. For more good practical information on the environment and how to help protect it without losing your mind, check out their website here. And thanks to all of you who have been sending me your environmental footprints. I hope you’ve all been as inspired as I have to focus a little harder on the important choices. For instance, I love Trader Joe’s grocery stores, but most of their products come from far away. We’re researching Community Supported [Local] Agriculture (CSA) programs in St. Louis to help shrink our household’s footprint. Either that or we have to take in a family of four.
