I'm not against global warming, I'm "pro-Earth"

For about six months I've been exploring a theory called the Law of Attraction. It states that, for example, if you are anti-war, you actually give war more power and influence. You need to be pro-peace.*

From time to time, I write about global warming in this blog. Not because it directly relates to great customer experiences, but because I care about it and want to help. Like many people who read my blog, I'm concerned (okay, freaked out) by global warming and don't know what to do about it.


Then it occurred to me: I need to be pro-Earth instead. I need to come up with ways to be pro-Earth, and then spread the word. So, here's an idea. Next time you go to a party, or buy a hostess, holiday, anniversary, or birthday gift, toss in a compact fluorescent light bulb. Or a whole package. People who don't know about these amazing bulbs can read the Fast Company article and become convinced. But, have we all actually put them in our homes? Or our parents and friends' homes? If we make it easy for people, they'll be more likely to install them. Just say you're wanting to save them money. Once people see how well they work and how their bills go down, they'll be more likely to switch their entire homes, and businesses, over.

And, if you're pro-Earth, send this blog post to everyone you know.

  1. I thought you and your readers might be interested in this...

    The Oprah broadcast of "The Secret" will be February 8th. I also just found out that it will be followed by an International Law of Attraction Teleconference. If you want more info go to http://www.lawofattractionteleconference.com.

    Also, the more posts that Oprah gets on her message boards about a particular topic, the more inclined she is to repeat the topic. So go to www.oprah.com and find the message board for The Secret to let her know that you want more of the same!

    The only problem with compact florecent light bulbs is that they contain a significant amount of mercury which is very dangerous health concern. Therefore the bulbs need to be recycled in a toxic waste facility. Do not throw away in your trash!
