Message In a Bottle: You're Heating Up the Globe, and Growing Boobies

I hope everyone had a good laugh at Fred and Barney, as well as had a good day today.

I've scoured the Internet for some news somewhere to catch my eye, to blog about, and come up empty handed. Then, I looked through some odd photos, for something- anything, to blog about.

Zilch. I spent the day cleaning up my machine's registry, and adding 17 new tunes to this Finetune player.

So I guess it was a slow news day the whole Earth over, for The Telegraph to have this bizarre a Global Warming story:

"We have to make people think that it's unfashionable just as we have with smoking. We need a similar campaign to convince people that this is wrong," said Tim Lang, the Government's naural resources commissioner.

Phil Woolas, the environment minister, added that the amount of money spent on mineral water "borders on being morally unacceptable".

Their comments come as new research shows that drinking a bottle of water has the same impact on the environment as driving a car for a kilometre. Conservation groups and water providers have started a campaign against the £2 billion industry. How ridiculous~!

[I think that if the British spent half the time, money and energy as they do in finding a Global Warming disaster around every blooming thing, on finding out what ingredient in their water makes them all such intolerable fools instead, they might actually solve some problem.]

Hey Minister Woolas, why not drop the following item into the press, and watch bottled water sales and consuption uhh, evaporate?
From Energetic Nutrition.com:

Plastics in our lives also expose us to the chemical bisphenol A, a breakdown product of polycarbonate, widely used in many plastics. Bisphenol A, found in the lining of many food cans, water and juice containers, escapes when polycarbonate is subjected to high temperatures. The estrogenic effects of bisphenol A became clear when men working in the plastics industry developed breasts after chronically inhaling the chemical in dust.

More research at Science Daily.

That is why I drink only from glass, paper or aluminum.
Unless doing so will thaw out Greenland.
