Another Red Hot Northern Colorado Day

Well we set a record.  Over 20 days where the high temperature is over 90 degrees.  Global warming, or just hot, I am not sure.  But it is worth thinking about, and that is one of the goals of IOE.  We want people to be thinking about ecology, the environment and the economics of our lives. 

It hit me again yesterday when I was in the grocery store.  I had again forgotten to bring my cloth shopping bag.  I feel so guilty when I take a plastic bag from the store.  Do you know how much landfill space those plastic bags take?  It is huge.  But, how do I change my habits enough to always remember to have a cloth bag?  There are even times when I have one in my car, but I forget to bring it inside and am then too lazy to go out and get it.  I have to change my attitude and make it an absolut must to have the bags and if they are in the car to go out and get them. 

Am I the only one who is lazy like this?  I do not think so.  What are any of your thoughts about this dilemma.  How can I get better?  Well I have to get to some work, but I am loving thinking ecolonomically.  See that is a word.  Get it fixed in your mind ECOLONOMICS.
