The "Take It!" was in response to those who
observed this little project of mine while they were looking at a previous photo/story on this site.
The After Take: This is a moment of true
confession in that I am one of those who believes in Global Warming. While there is much being done to reverse this - I believe there is much more that can be done. The Sun is
both friend and foe as the heat it generates is beyond amazing. In many very hot locations on Earth houses are painted white to help reflect the sun. In that I did not want
to paint my red brick house, white nor have a white roof, I did what I thought was a next best thing in laying out white bottles in my back yard to help, even if it is in a small
way, to bounce a little bit of the sun back upward rather than have the heat fully absorbed by the earth in my back yard. The smaller bottles on the right are from fat free milk
bought by me at Costco. The bottles in the left of the photos are from kitty litter bottles which are contributed by a neighbor who has cats. I have projects for
I have zip tied the handles of these plastic
bottles together and then tied them all together to keep them from scattering when there is wind. So far the attachment program has been working.
Nothing earth shattering has been sought from
this program - but I am looking forward to the further development of bio plastics which will enable this type of thing to be done with little or no harm to the environment. My
dream would call for biodegradable bottles to be recycled into land covers and filled with nontoxic fire retardant to help stave off prairie or open space fires. When fire
actually hit bottles set up in this fashion, they would melt and release their contents to help slow or put out the fire.
All of the above is a way for me to express my
thanks, for the interest shown in this, as one, of my several projects which are ongoing.
Here is hoping the fall is being kind to each
of you, wherever you may live. For those who live in those areas that have been hit this year. There are answers in waiting for some of this increase in awful
My very best regards to each of
