Radio, radio! & Eco-Landfill Initiatives

-- Across The Pond Radio --

Barry Eva of the Across the Pond Radio show interviews me - Lillian Brummet :) - about the world of writing. We talked about handling contacts, dealing with emotions, managing friends/family/coworker & spouses... We discussed the importance of setting aside time for your creation process and having the self-discipline to follow through with your goals. We also talked about e-books, audio books and more! check it out via the hyper-link above, or the URL below.

I'm so pleased to share with you that I read an excerpt on an online radio show this morning a few moments ago... from the 2nd edition of Purple Snowflake Marketing - How to Make Your Book Stand Out in a Crowd. The archive should be available in a few moments - do check it out! I'm excited to share an excerpt of my book in this way!

-- Green Landfill Initiatives --

Initiatives to completely eliminate compostable organics out of the San Diego Area Landfill have been in discussion and are hoped to be in place by 2012...

Landfilling of biodegradable waste (including food, paper products, garden & yard waste, agricultural waste) is a huge contributor to global warming. Recent studies show that methane gas which is created from organic materials in the landfill, is as much as 72 times more destructive than CO2.

According to the Zero Waste San Diego Group - Landfills are the number one source of human-caused methane in the United States and emit the greenhouse gas equivalent of 20 percent of our country’s coal-fired power plants every year. These organics are a valuable resource that build healthy soil, rather than using petroleum-based fertilizers & pesticides to aid unhealthy crops and forcing them to produce inferior fruits, we need to grow healthy soil first… providing everything the plant needs naturally. And let us not forget that healthy soils are capable of holding twice the carbon stocks of plants. Meaning this can be a big resource for governments in the form of carbon sinks.

Composting, whatever the method we might choose as a community, individual or as a society – it is truly the quickest and cheapest way to immediately reduce our community’s greenhouse gas emissions and improve the health of soils.
