Rock Stars Answer Life's Questions
- Homer Simpson
The smartest people rise to the top, and become celebrities.
Fortunately for us, many are quite willing to share their expertise with us common folk.
Currently, they are sharing their notions about Global Warming, and what we (we being us "common people") can and should be doing about it.
Sheryl Crow (known mostly to me personally because she was Lance Armstrong's girlfriend for awhile) has been on a "Stop Global Warming College Tour." (Evidently one of the best things you can do to stop Global Warming is to get on a biodiesel bus and tour the country.)
There's a story about their adventures in the Washington Post - click HERE to read about "The Biodiesel Bus Blog."
Some of Sheryl's ideas:
- "I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. "
- Dining Sleeve: "I also like the idea of not using paper napkins, which happen to be made from virgin wood and represent the height of wastefulness. I have designed a clothing line that has what's called a "dining sleeve." The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another "dining sleeve," after usage. The design will offer the "diner" the convenience of wiping his mouth on his sleeve rather than throwing out yet another barely used paper product. I think this idea could also translate quite well to those suffering with an annoying head cold.
(She's joking - right? Somebody tell me it's just a joke!)
- Reality show - the contestant who lives the "greenest life" would get a recording contract.
Earth to Sheryl! Earth to Sheryl!
