The Story of Stuff

I've traditionally been content to take the "ignorance is bliss" approach to the footprint I leave on the environment with my consumption and disposal of goods, but since I've started watching birds and interacting a bit more with my natural environment, I'm beginning to see the importance of the natural resources and the environment around me, with all its wildlife and beauty.

This isn't your typical "go green" propaganda video. It paints a very clear picture of how we got to where we're at, and the core of why we need to change. It's worth 20 minutes of your time. I promise.

Early spring?

Woodie the Groundhog says an early spring is coming for Chicago :)

Punxsutawney Phil, the nation's official groundhog, though, says 6 more weeks of winter.

I'm going with my hometown boy on this one!
