"Global Warming" RX

What can we do to save ourselves from the impending doom of Global Warming? Don't fret...there's a list...

Cheryl Crow wants the amount of toilet paper squares you use limited. Really. How many squares?

Crow says, " square per restroom visit — except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required." (source) Oh yeah, that should be a pleasant smelling Earth.

What else can we do besides walking around with nasty underpants you ask?

Well, Time Magazine just published the list and here are 12 of the 51 proposed cures for 'Surviving Global Warming":

• Building bamboo fences.

• Wear Green eyeshadow.

• Turning thermostats to 82.4 degrees in the summer.

• Making only right turns to save idling in left-turn bays.

• Taking fewer trips on "carbon-spewing" jetliners.

• Wearing clothes from the thrift store.

• Raking instead of blowing leaves.

• Bringing your own cup to Starbucks.

• Bringing a cloth bag to the check-out to tote your groceries.

• Collecting rainwater.

  • Live in a 100-square-foot home.

  • • Have a Green wedding.
