If they want us to break free of fossil fuels, they need to give the public alternatives!

It feels like to me that there is a shit tone of preaching and no affirmative action. The way I see it if you are going to talk do the walk. For all of the environmentalist out there, those that are saying the environment is everything to them. Question what are you doing to be more pro-active? How do you run that car of yours? Do you have gas-operated appliances? Do you do your shopping plastic-free? Do you have a compost?

The thing that grins my gears is not that I do not care about my lifestyle and the environment. It has always been, if you are going to preach, you better be doing the walk. If you are going to be a leader, lead by example. I do not see any of this.
I am sure that I am not the only one that is concerned about the world we are living in, and what the world would be like for the next generation and many centuries from now. There are so many protests from environmentalist on this concern and that. Am I the only one that is get agitated and tired of the same old same old, yet not seeing a damn thing done? Since 1970 there have been warning, yet no action. Up until recently has any form of action is being taken. Yet, I can stop feeling like environment activist are running around with their heads chopped off. Not able to figure out what to do. So like a broken record, they repeat themselves over and over again.

Petroleum, coal and natural gas, these are the fossil fuels we use today. Petroleum products include transportation fuels, fuel oils for heating and electricity generation, asphalt and road oil, plastics, and synthetic materials that are in nearly everything we use. Coal is in electricity generation, steel production, cement manufacturing and as a liquid fuel. Natural Gases are delivered to homes through pipelines and typically used for space and water heating. It generally is used for stoves, dryers, lighting fixtures and other appliances.

Solar panels, massive wind turbine, water currents, these are some of the ways to help out, but there are still issues with all three methods of reducing fossil fuels, moreover, in many cases not achievable of the lower-income person or family.

Gas-electric hybrid cars, plug-in hybrid, electric, biodiesel, propane, Liquefied and compressed natural gas, solar, steam these are just a few alternatives for car fuels.

Alternatives for heating your home: Central Warm-Air Furnaces, heat pumps, space heaters, biomass-fueled heat, pellet stoves.

If you can do this in your area, hang up your laundry to dry outside. (Sadly, the city that I live at band clotheslines. So I got creative and set up lawn chairs in a row then used broken broom rods to hang up my laundry.)

Solar panel light bulbs, battery operated lights, night lights, are a few ways to light up your place. (I bought solar panel light bulbs from Amazon. They were amazing. The only downside was, during the wintertime, I did not get a full charge, so the light did not last for long.)

Tankless water heaters to replace the gas-powered water heater. Tankless water heaters are something I just found out about while I was doing my research. Just like anything else that I have come across, this is very costly to start up, yet, for the little information that I have gathered, this might be an excellent investment and cleaner for the environment.

More than anything, I have been keeping a close eye on the research of using seaweed as an alternative to plastic. My research for a proactive result will never stop. If there is a company that is heading in the path of being eco-friendly, I will plaster their name all over Facebook, Twitter and here. Just so that others know of their existence, and It will not take a decade for them to be noticed.
