The 90-Day Plan: DAY 15

DAY 15

DO SOMETHING OUTSIDE IN PLACE of ONE HOUR of TV, VIDEO GAME, and/or WEB TIME!  As a reminder: 75% of electricity in the US is from fossil fuels, the ocean naturally absorbs carbon dioxide but in excess, carbonic acid forms and is partly responsible for the degradation of coral reefs, and emissions from coal burning power plants are a prime source of mercury in our waters.  With that said, reduce your electric use and have some fun in the sun.

Challenge:  During the summer, storms can travel quickly and lightning can strike even if the storm is far in the distance.  Using the bottom link, inform yourself and your friends about storm safety.
