The Heat is on in Middle Georgia

The Heat is on in Middle Georgia

We all know it's hot here in middle Georgia and we don't have to be a meteorologist to know it'll be like this for a while. I personally am NOT a fan of summer. Nothing about the hot, hazy days during this time of year appeals to me.

Summer comes with a resume of misery if you ask me. First and foremost, we have the wretched heat. My a/c runs non stop trying to keep it cool in my little house and this is with the help of fans. No such luck, it's still hot. This of course leads to the astronomical electric bills. My favorite uncle ever owns a heating and air business here in town and he says the only thing I can do is buy blackout curtains and keep it as dark as possible inside. As if the heat isn't bad enough we also have the horrid humidity. And I have naturally curly hair. And then there's the bugs. Don't even get me started on the bugs. Ants, mosquitoes, wasps, ticks...you name it and it's out in full force, in my yard.

El medio ambiente y los combustibles--siempre conectados

          Actualmente, el abuso de recursos naturales es muy común. En los Estados Unidos especialmente, la cultura está basada en el uso de combustibles fósiles y consumismo innecesario, sin los cuales una sociedad no puede funcionar.

Si los hábitos de la raza humana no cambian, estará imposible salvar la flora y la fauna que depende de su entorno para vivir. La dependencia en combustibles fósiles es malo para el ambiente, otros organismos en la planeta, y para humanos también.
